It's been a minute and a half since I've posted, so I thought I'd just share a few small obsessions of late.

Peppermint tea has become a regular in my mug recently, due to it's amazing flavor, refreshing sensation, and the fact that it's supposed to be good for digestion which is great cause I've not been the nicest to my stomach lately.

Since I'm on the topic, I should mention my latest drink discovery that I made by accident at Caribou one day when I was driving and in desperate need of a restroom (tmi, perhaps). I swerved into the first place I saw, which was Caribou, and since I'm the pushover type of person who feels guilty just running into a coffee shop and bee-lining for the restroom, I thought it best to hurriedly order a drink first. And what a stroke of luck, I ordered this new iced drink called the Lavender white chocolate mocha. Oh it is so good. On the high from it, I got one daily for the next few days and then thought it best to try to cut back a bit. There's healthier options out there, you know, like McDonald's new caramel Frappés. (ohsoweirdlygood)

Enough about drinks. LimeRaspberryRickey. Really. You'd think I was obsessed.

I had a great time making this mix CD for a swap I participated in. (Swaps are fun!)

And here's the one I got from her:
Isn't it cute? I'm really digging it. Thank you!

It's the season for peonies which just happen to be my favorite flower, so this calls for at least two peony pictures for our viewing pleasure.

Note: It was the season for peonies when I started this post a week or two ago, but now that season is over.

I'm smitten with this Catharine Malandrino necklace, I think it would be the perfect addition to my any summer wardrobe.

And speaking of summer wardrobes, this picture is really stuck in my mind. It's my favorite thing right now. What fantastic layering.


It's gonna be a full summer (already is), but I'm really excited!

Peony season is already over?!?! Ugh, that makes me sad. I haven't even had a chance to go down to my local florist and spend $7 per stem on them! Boo.

Welcome back, btw.

I love how you hurriedly ordered a drink at Caribou before you went to the bathroom. That's so funny!!!

that drink sounds absolutely delicious.
also, the new frappucinnos from Starbucks are actually very good. I suggest the Mocha light (but to make up for it being low in calories, add whipped creams, chocolate syrup, and sprinkes.)

the outfit and peonies are also lovely.

Your ultimate league is putting a serious cramp in SYTYCD togetherness!!! We'll just have to figure something out at some point. I thought it might be fun to have a tea party this summer. =-) I might even brew some peppermint just for you!

Ok, I am *so* trying that Lavender White Chocolate Mocha drink next time I drive past a Caribou Coffee! It sounds soooooo good!

Now you've got me wanting something to drink. It was so hot yesterday that I did stop and get me a Frosty Shake at Wendy's before work.

I am a sucker for drinks too. Have you tried to Lipton Strawberry kiwi Diet drink teas??? Well OMG! Because I am obsessed. But its not a bad obsession as green tea is super great for you and really helps keep my skin healthy and helps my digestion system.
N-E way I really recommend.

And those McDonald frappes are addicting. I had to hold back on those:(

Hey Esther! :)
It's Julia from *thisdaisy. I just want to say THANK YOU so much for taking part in the Mixtape Swap! :D Your cover art was just beautiful and I'm so glad you received your mixtape already. Your swap partner Nik actually sent me a coupla photos of your mixtape and she was just so pleased! And then I decided to visit your lovely blog and found more photos! Hee. I hope you don't mind if I post one or two photos of your CD on my blog, as I will be doing some sort of a Mixtape-Round-Up post.

Thanks so much once again for taking part! Hope you had fun. Have a wonderful rest of the week, E! <3 x
