Model Monday: Penel #2

Looking Cool; Staying Warm

Hi! This is my first "official" Model Monday, but we decided to make it my second because of Thread Thursday. It was fun looking at some of the other Model Monday posts. I don't think we took as many fun photos as in some of the earlier Model Monday posts.  Oh, well.  We relearn.

I really love this outfit.  You may have noticed me wearing it in our Catching Up post.  And now that we're reading the Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine I think of it as the outfit Eve put together for Claire and I get to play Claire.  Anyway, this outfit makes me feel cool!

Sipping Sunday #3

Halloween: Le Bonheur

I can't believe Halloween two weeks ago already!
Was fun though.

Everyone had great ways for keeping trick or treaters safe
At least, in our neighborhood.  It seems other areas weren't as fortunate. 
I can't believe you missed the group photo.

It takes a lot of time to get your hair big!

Plus I can't believe you didn't notice I wasn't there until after!
So what are we drinking today?
Le Bonheur.

Le Bonheur?
Yes, this is "happiness" tea from Fauchon in France.
Sounds interesting.

Yes, it has a black tea base with safflower petals, white tea, cornflower petals, sunflower petals, and flavors.

Well, the description notes red fruits, orchid, and a bit of chocolate.
Neat.  May I have a cup?
With sugar and milk?
Okay, but it's not necessary.  This one is really good plain.
Oh, but yummy this way too.

Xyra's Notes

  • This tin of Le Bonheur tea was part of Fauchon travel set given to us by Nonna.
  • It is fabulous! It has a lovely bold, yet light flavor.  
  • It's good hot or cold.
  • Plus it has a lovely color even after two steepings.

Thank you for stopping!

Much love to all.  Stay safe and well.
