This Bigelow Tea campaign is focusing on “Tea Proudly” and how their brand holds such a deep and meaningful connection to families all over. It’s one of those brands you’re low key loyal to and you don’t realize it. We’ve been buying it forever and I didn’t even know! It’s just what we always go to.

If you know me, you know my allergies – because, well, they’re an issue literally every second of my life. If I’m lucky, about twice a year, they get way out of hand, and I end up just completely sick. Head cold, sneezing, coughing, sick. And my dad always made me tea! It was, and still is, his fix for everything.

“Tea and a hot shower. Go.” He’d say to me.

The negative nancy in me would roll my eyes at his implication that it would actually help, but I did it anyways. And no, tea doesn’t fix a cold. But it’s a homey, cozy, temporary feel good that is so nostalgic to me and reminds me of home!

Green Tea. Black Tea. Whatever kind of tea we could find. Lemon. And tons of honey! It’s a simple recipe but it’s something we’ve been doing for years and continue to do! And after I moved out, it was something I loved to make at night before bed. It zenned me out, and I would turn down the lights, and just relax. It brought the comfort of home without actually being home, which I loved.

Now that I’m older, I enjoy tea more than when I’m just needing a dose of my dad’s “fix it” tea, and Bigelow has the best collection to choose from. During the holiday season, we’re always looking for something to put us the “holiday spirit”, and the Constant Comment tea does just that. The spices and flavors are perfect for this time of year and will do the trick if you’re feeling a little “out of the holiday mood” this year!

So turn on your Christmas lights, steep some tea, and put on a good Christmas flick!

How do you “Tea Proudly”? Is there any nostalgic connection you have to tea?

  • I didn’t have a head cold in this picture. It was a much happier time. 
Happy Sunday, friends. 🤧
  • Super stoked for the weather to not be garbage. 🌊
  • Quote of the day: “Be alone. Eat alone. Take yourself on dates. Sleep alone. In the midst of this, you will learn about yourself. You will grow. You will figure out what inspires you. You will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity, and when you meet the person that makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it, because you will be sure of yourself.”
  • Been sleeping all day in anticipation for super bowl food
  • Today I’m grateful for the things about me that I always considered to be my “bad” qualities. 
I think “bad” qualities are something we all possess, but I also think they’re useful in the sense that they do a job to weed the people out of our lives that aren’t beneficial to our end game- whatever that may be. 
So I’m listing my “bad” qualities this morning and I’m going to repurpose them. What good have they brought me? 
Some of the good I’ve come up with include: clarity, new surroundings, a chance to do what i need for myself, a new appreciation for life, love for myself that I didn’t realize I had, and so many more. 
If you’re feeling especially down about yourself, I challenge you to make a list of the things you don’t love and repurpose them. Think about what kind of good came out of your bad qualities and embrace that. 
I fully believe we are who we are for a reason and we should probably stop trying to be what we think people want us to be, and we should just.. be. Good, bad, and everything in between. You’ll be surprised who and what you attract.

ive been doing great with these captions, huh? 
i had 2 job interviews today & I’m going to reward myself with fried pickles. 🍽
  • Somethin about being sweet and wearing a crown. idk. I’m an asshole.
  • Life can get confusing. 
Intentions can get lost. 
Goals can change. 
It’s just what happens. But I’m going to try my damndest to channel the inner freebird inside me and learn to roll with these changes instead of trying to control them. 
We’re not in control of what happens. We’re only in control of our reactions and the choices we make.
