As a professional-grade procrastinator, I’m always on the lookout for anything that will help me get the most done with the least amount of effort!
I had a plan.
I had it all figured out.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men….
I’ve been blogging off and on for over nine years, but I was ready to kick things up a notch. I wanted to move from hobby blogger to the pros.
So I started signing up for free email courses. Joined mailing lists and Facebook groups. I even bought a couple of blogging bundles (the Genius Bloggers Toolkit).
My original plan was to finish working through the Genius Bloggers Toolkit before buying any other courses. I have both the 2017 and the 2018 kits, so there’s plenty of material to work through.
As an easily distracted, professional-level procrastinator, I’d say I wasn’t even halfway done with the 2017 kit, much less the 2018 one.
Don’t judge me.

What do you get?
How do they know what I’ll like?
My December box:
Tulsi, or Holy Basil, is a sacred plant in India and is known as “The Queen of the Herbs” for its restorative and spiritual properties. This blend helps with energy levels, mood and stress.
Caffeine level – low
Organic Assam Black Tea Bag by Mana Organics
Organic Assam Black Tea from Chota Tingrai, a family-run tea estate in India
Brisk, bold, and pure, this single-estate black tea is excellent for waking you up in the morning or replacing your afternoon cup of coffee.
Caffeine level – high
Since I’m not a morning person, I need all the caffeine I can get to get me up and running in the morning! This tasted like regular black tea to me, nothing unique or special.
Tea Ifri by Sayra
This delicate blend of red berries and green tea is inspired by the warrior goddess Ifri – in North Africa, she was long deemed to be the defender of merchants.
Caffeine level – low
I usually don’t care for green tea but this one was different. Since it was low caffeine, I was able to drink it at night before bed. A nice, mild flavor.
Apple Cinnamon by Zest Tea
South Indian Black Tea, Cinnamon Chips, Apple Pieces, Cinnamon & Apple Flavors, Natural Caffeine
Zest is the tea industry’s answer to a coffee-level cuppa. This one tastes like delicious apple pie in a cup!
Caffeine level – coffee-level
This one was my favorite! There were actual bits of apple in the mesh tea bag! Gave me that much needed jolt of caffeine in the morning, with an awesome hint of apple.

There was no product description available when I requested these from Amazon Vine for review, but I’m always on the look-out for nice towels so decided to take a chance.
These are listed as striped cotton towels in charcoal, but they’re actually white towels with charcoal stripe accents along the bottom. There are three towels in the set: a bath towel, a hand towel, and a wash cloth. They came nicely packaged, ready for gift giving.
