Things I Like...

I really don't consider myself to be materialistic;  I generally make-do with what I have (or what I trash-pick).  That said, I do have bunches of art supplies...and crave a few more!  Lately though, I've become pretty committed to what I like and what I don't like.

Likes:
Teavana Oprah Chai Latte, Teavana Youthberry/Wild Orangeblossom Tea, Tazo Passion Tea


I've never been a fan of milk or cream in my tea (or coffee, for that matter), but a couple of weeks ago I broke down and tried the Oprah Chai Tea Latte at Starbucks.  Truthfully, I've avoided the Oprah tea...I kind of shied away from the "endorsement".  The moment that blend of ginger and cardamom hit my throat I felt rather comforted.  Sounds silly, but it's true.

I got hooked on the Youthberry Wild Orangeblossom blend last year when my brother sent me a package.  Fruity and delicious!  This past summer, I replaced it with a more affordable Tazo Passion tea, served over ice.  Very refreshing and so much less expensive!

Likes:
iPhone6 (versus the Samsung Galaxy S5 I had for one long, miserable week)

One of the local big box stores had a deal a few weeks ago...trade in your working smart phone and receive a $200. gift card when you purchase a Samsung smart phone.  My "geek" squad person must not have gotten the memo...he said that only the Samsung phone was a qualifying purchase (he was wrong.)  At the time, I figured that the amount I would have to spend for the S5 would more than make up for the loss of an iPhone.  I was so wrong.  I left the store that evening with the Samsung and honestly, a sadness in my heart.  I felt like I had lost an old friend.  How crazy is that?  By weeks' end, the Samsung went back to the store and many hours later I left with another iPhone.  I would still be using my old iPhone, but all of a sudden it heated up and wouldn't hold a charge.  Life is back to normal...#firstworldproblem solved.

That about does it for things I feel strongly about in the "like" category.  While I might "like" something on Facebook...it doesn't mean I'm passionate about it (like I am my iPhone!!).

I am a hopeless iPhone lover. I don't think I could ever have anything else. I got the 6 plus and am loving it. I use it for business and it's replaced my kindle and nook for reading.
