Tea ☕ parties lift our mood in the winter time outside!

Tea parties always lift our mood even in the winter time outside! We love drinking up a pretend almond chai or a skinny mocha latte YUMM. This classic tea set is designed to sit loud and proud on your coffee table next to your designer coffee table books. It's stylish just like your little Barista in the making, and not pink or blue making it gender neutral. And of course, a good host should always serve their guest first. Manners are important these days, “how many sugars would you like Charlotte?”. We also have designed a beautiful cardboard box to pack your tea set away in afterwards, incase like us, you prefer to keep things neat and tidy.

FREE E-Book: Mindfulness & Meditation 🧘 Toolkit

FREE E-Book: Mindfulness & Meditation 🧘 Toolkit

Even before the pandemic, it was hard work to be a parent. And now, as parents we might be pulling our hair out with the extra stress of trying to a be a teacher now too. Being a parent is hard work – meaningful, rewarding, wouldn’t-trade-it-for-the-world – but hard work even more so now.. So take care of yourself and keep your cup full.  If you don’t do things to keep your cup full, you have nothing left to give or share with others.

I have put together some ways we try to manage our stress and anxiety daily during Covid-19. These are just some small things we can try help ourselves and our families as we navigate our way through this. Taking care of our mental health is something that I personally have been working on in the last few years and now seems needed more than ever. On an airplane, we’re instructed to put on our own oxygen masks first, before helping a child do the same.  If you think that’s a crazy idea, realize that you’re not much help to anyone if you’ve passed out due to lack of oxygen because you tried to help everyone else first.

Put your oxygen mask on first and please stay safe.
