Posts Tagged ‘Winter’

I can’t believe we are just under 7 weeks away from Christmas! In fact, my work Christmas party is exactly 29 days away – that’s less than a month!! If you haven’t started panicking about holiday gifting, you probably should. I know I am now.

Here are some ideas to get you started. I was invited to a preview of Superstore’s holiday collections and after confirming with the agency, I can tell you that the new products should be in store now (I was told 2nd week of November). Let me share some of my favorites with you.

The Midnight Wish collection was definitely my favourite of them all. It is inspired by the starry sky on Christmas Eve and highlights the navy and gold trend. I was sold as soon as I saw the constellation line up!

Adding to my shopping list include the Dutch Oven, Galactic Water Bottle (or I call it the constellation bottle), Zodiac Mug (I’m a Sagittarius, by the way!).

It’s amazing how quickly our weather has gone a 180! We had such a nice September and it didn’t take long for our October to become, well, our usual October, wet and cold. Because of the sudden weather change, a lot of people at the office has been under the weather. And that’s when I was introduced to this magical drink found in Yaletown – the Cold Blaster. And O-Cha Tea Bar, is the place to be.

Cold Blaster

The other day, after my two teammates have been claimed a victim of the vicious virus, I trekked all the way to Yaletown to grab a Cold Blaster, just in case. Other colleagues have tried it before and it seemed to have helped them recover from early cold symptoms, so I thought I would get it as a preventative measure. This drink contains a special tea blend, orange juice, honey, ginger, and a little wedge of lemon; all this is topped with a shake or two of cayenne powder. Yes, cayenne powder. The combination of ingredients may sound really strange, but when mixed together it’s a fragrant, citrusy drink. And thanks to the heat from the cayenne, it warms you right up as soon as you take your first sip.

After my first dose of Cold Blaster, my body has stayed strong and I haven’t fallen as another victim of the virus. This seems to be the cure-all now for colleagues who are feeling a slightly bit sick. At the same time KB and LH just love the tea for what it is, and would just go for one even if they feel find. Ah what a great find!

But wait!
