Tuesday Finds: Relaxation

It's been a busy week, ladies and gents. A busy month, really. Completing orders (such as the pile of little ones on the right), packing them, running about after supplies and to the post office... I do love it, don't get me wrong, but at the same time I'm glad this only occurs once a year. ;)

One thing is certain: after such weeks, one is in dire need of relaxation.

When I think about ways to relax, one of the first things that come to mind is a nice cup of tea. 'Orient Express' by Tea Noir looks like a lovely alternative - a green tea blend with jasmine. (I recently tried this blend and while not perhaps the first choice for relaxation, it was indeed simply delightful!)

Imagine a nice hot foot bath, while reading a book and enjoying the tea above. Mmm, the thought alone makes me a little less tense. How about a little something extra for the poor tired feet afterwards? Perhaps something like this Twinkle Toes Foot Repair balm by Dress Green?

I'm sure this doesn't apply to everyone, but the one thing that's guaranteed to relax me is knitting. Yes, even after weeks of it, non-stop. This gorgeous handspun mohair yarn looks oh so tempting indeed. While I haven't tried the yarns from The Fuzzy Bunny, I can happily recommend this seller based on my purchases from her bath and body shop.

Glad you're having a great holiday sale spurt! Those little guys are adorable! The tea and the foot bath sounds great since I'm freezing here. King's Tea is really good and for relaxation nothing beats good Green Tea! I'd love to knit once I find my needles... though my friends swears chopsticks are good enough.. >_> ... lolol...

now go and relax yourself dude... =D

ooh, they all sound so great. Well.. okay, the yarn looks great, for sure, and the other sound great. I am sure that if I could figure out how to knit, I would find the yarn relaxing as well. Oh well.

They all sound very attractive. No time to relax right now, maybe after Christmas? Foot bath sounds great!
