Hey loves, how goes it? In today’s post I’m trying out Pumeli’s “Portable Tea Infuser”with Morrocan Green Mint Tea and discussing more ways to incorporate self-care into your daily routine. This past month has been C-R-A-Z-Y, I’ve had so many obstacles coming in from left to right, so it’s appropriate that I take some tea-time.

Since some days it’s difficult to grab a cup of tea and a good spot to reflect, I love that this tea infuser bottle is on-the-go for those just in case “tea times”. I also love that the bottle is double walled, keeping my tea hot or cold.Also it comes with a small, steel insert for the loose tea, it keeps most of it out of your mouth. If you’re a planner like me, I recommend to prepare your bottle the night before, especially if you like lemons and honey with your tea. And did you know you can also use this bottle for fruit/herb infused waters and smoothies? Amazing, right? I love products that are multi-purpose, and I know for sure that I can use this for hot or cold days. And it’s small enough to fit in a backpack, purse or car cup holder .

When preparing your tea with the steel infuser, try putting the it into the bottom of the glass, and then put the lid on top. The bottle was designed to not only be used as a steeper, but to be poured directly into a cup or drink from the glass.

Something about hot tea, with honey and lemon, makes me want to just slow down and reflect on my life. As a daily tea drinker, it not only improves your physical health with antioxidants, but also helps with calming down your nerves. I’m a big advocate on nurturing your mental health, and tea helps do that. Remember at the beginning of this post when I said things got C-R-A-Z-Y? Well I’ve been going through some tough times, especially recently losing a job that I thought was good for me. As well my dating life has been a freak show in itself, so all of these unfortunate experiences really has me stressed out! Although I’m going through a lot, my circumstances are forcing me to slow down and reset some things in my life. I’m confident that everything will work out for the best!

That’s why this Portable Tea Infuser is perfect for my on-the-go people, it gives you that chance to take a few minutes of self reflection and to enjoy some delicious tea. Pumeli also has great gift sets for those tea lovers you know, so check them out and tell them I sent you! Overall loves, I’m not saying hot tea will solve all your problems, but I say give it a try, you have #permissiontorelax.

 

Thanks for reading Loves!

Self-Care with Spookieloo

Self Care in the midst of bullshittery

 

Hey lovlies! How’s everyone doing today? I hope you all are doing well, because you’re in for a treat with today’s post. I want to engage with you all starting today 8/16/16 through 8/23/16 on how important self-care is, especially if you’re having a hard time navigating life right now. Normally I’m pretty private about my personal life, but in the past couple of weeks I’ve been through an emotional rollercoaster (could be early PMS lol) and I’m tired of always feeling like my emotions don’t matter or that they’re not valid. I’m sure you’ve been there before, it feels like life is just smacking you up and down with no remorse huh?

*******************

This past weekend I went on a date that I thought would be something to remember, and boy was it! Basically the date I went on ended up with me being stranded by the guy that I was a on a date with, he left while I went to the restroom to freshen up. I came back, he was gone, ghost, left without a trace. I texted him, “Hey, you ok?” No reply. So I’m waiting, thinking and then finally came to the conclusion 30 minutes later, that this mofo left my ass (lol I can laugh now thank goodness), so I called and texted several more times, nothin boo. Embarrassed, hurt and angry, I sat there another 20 minutes in shock that this happened, I mean who does that? I eventually and begrudgingly called for an Uber ride, that was the longest and saddest drive I have ever endured.

Anyway fast forward to now, the guy eventually texted me back after I summoned my friends to bug his phone a little (lol), of course he was PISSED that I had something to say after what HE did. *Insert confused look* The conversation lasted about ten minutes, he really tried to hurt me, cut me down because I wanted to know why he would do that. When he said I had “bad intuition” and that he was “miserable” during the date, all I could do was shake my head. None of what he was said was true, which brings me to the point of this post: People’s hurtful words; well hurt, but they don’t have to for long.   

With the amount of frustration that I’ve been feeling towards life in general, and then this tragedy of a date happening, my emotions and self-confidence were shot down a few notches. I can be honest and say that shit hurt, but I engaged in some self-care activities to lift myself back up and will continue to for the rest of this week. Will you join me? Let’s look below!

Day1- Rest, listen to light music and clear your thoughts (2)

 

I know that was a wild story, but I wanted to share this with you all because it’s important that we bounce back from hurtful words, especially when we know that they’re not true. My method is not the cure all for frustration, but it’s a start in a healthier direction, towards a stronger mindset. Please know and understand that your emotions and feelings are valid, you’re not crazy boo, you got this. I got this.

If you decided to join me today on this self-care journey, remember to use #spookieloosselfcare, so we can help each other out. Well, that’s all for now, enjoy the rest of your day!
