TEA FOR TWOsday - EARL GREY CHALLENGE (Round 1)

TEA JOURNAL - Compliments of this weekend's trip to DAVIDsTEA on Bleecker and a fantastically strong craving for some Earl Grey tea, I have put these two deliciously different beauties up against one another in Round 1 of the Earl Grey Challenge.  One's a Green and one's a Black, but both are absolutely delicious blends that were chosen by scent alone to compete here this week.  Are you ready to meet the competitors?

THE FRIDAY 5 - WORKOUTS THAT WORK!


THE FRIDAY FIVE - The summer may be half over, but we all know that the best time to hit the beach is in the fall... when the water's warm, crowds die down, and (if you live in New Jersey) the beaches are finally free again!  Realizing that Labor Day is right around the corner... or perhaps that your first day of school is coming up... you want to feel and look good going into this new year... and especially going into the holiday season where (let's be honest now) many of us will gladly throw on heavy sweaters to cover up the fact that we're gobbling up all those holiday treats and goodies!  So, how are we going to feel and look great leading into September?  By looking ourselves in the mirror and saying, "I love you" to ourselves and then grabbing one or more of the following workout DVDs to tone up and slim down!  Seriously, I am going to do this right along with you all... I don't want to be left out of our better body renovation and fitness revolution!  So, no matter what sort of shape you are in, how old you are, or how ambitious... I have put together my top 5 DVDs for EVERY BODY.

THE FRIDAY 5 - FOR BANANA LOVERS!

FRIDAY FIVE - Over the weekend I discovered my new favorite tea spot in New York City and took home four lovely little bags of oolong bliss.  One of which inspired today's Friday Five.  This week I'm dedicating a post entirely to my favorite on-the-go snack that often packs a much-needed punch of potassium, dietary fiber, sugar, and Vitamins C and B6.  Great for your heart, bones, kidneys and nerves!  They can increase your mood and have worked every time to get rid of cramping and discomfort in my feet.  Not sure of how much I love bananas?  Drop by my semi-annual Birthday Bananathon and see what kinds of shenanigans ensue on the streets of the Big Apple and beyond!  Although I could probably list a dozen, I will now share with you, my lovely readers, five of my favorite banana goodies...
