A while ago I received a small sample of Kusmi BB Detox Tea while out shopping. I usually try to avoid teas with caffeine, and I never got the detox hype either. But I’m in love with Kusmi’s products, so I decided to give it a try anyway. BB Detox contains green tea, mate, rooibos, guarana, dandelion, and grapefruit.
I’m a big fan of tea, especially herbal tea. A few weeks ago the local Kusmi store was giving discounts, so I decided to head over and buy a new taste. They always have so much choice, but luckily you can try all their different teas before buying something. I decided to go for Linden-Rose from Løv Organic, a caffeine free tea containing Linden, lavender, apple and rose.
I consider my English to be ok, but it isn’t my mother tongue, so I do make mistakes now and then. I hate spelling or grammar mistakes, and I don’t want to publish any poorly written posts. So up until a week ago, I made my American boyfriend proofread my posts. But then I discovered Grammarly, a free tool that corrects your grammar and spelling mistakes as you write.
You can either use the Grammarly browser plugin or their desktop app. The plugin notifies you of errors as you’re typing in input fields, which means you can correct the text of your blog posts directly through your blog editor. The desktop app has the same functions as the plugin but looks more like a text editor. I think the app is useful when you’re writing a paper or important email, while the plugin is most useful when you’re writing a blog post.
Keeping a mood journal is an excellent way to monitor your emotions and thoughts. It can be used to discover a relation between your mood and certain situations or behaviours. The way you keep track of your emotions doesn’t really matter, what’s important is that you use a method that works for you. You can write down your mood at certain time intervals, answer a set of questions whenever your mood changes, fill in a form every evening, etc. Some prefer pen and paper, others use mood tracking apps.
I decided to start tracking my mood a few months ago but I am still trying to find the method that works best for me. One of the things I really wanted to try out were mood tracking apps. I downloaded Moodtrack Diary, the most popular mood tracking app in my store region, and used it to actively track my feelings for two weeks. Besides Moodtrack Diary, I also tried out Emoly for a few days.
I don’t have a garden or a balcony, for which I compensate by filling my apartment with plants. Succulents are definitely my favourite type. They come in many different shapes and colors, and they’re easy to take care of. I water mine only once or twice a month and they’ve survived perfectly fine so far. Yesterday I went to Ikea to buy some storage boxes and decided to shop for plants as well while I was there. My plan was to buy one or two, but I ended up buying five instead.
Usually Ikea has a lot of choice, but I was a bit disappointed this time. Most of their succulents and cacti were extremely small and I had a hard time finding two that I liked. After a long search I ended up buying an aloe vera plant and a cactus.
