Favorite Things & Yellow Bird + Yellow Beard Blogiversary Giveaway!

{Silver Tips' passion berry loose tea, JAS and Bagels custom stickers, Target bag
Urban Outfitters macaron box,  Shop Rite tea strainer, ℅ House of Garland headband, 
NYX matte lipstick in Tea Rose, Sammydress necklace, Forever 21 detangling brush 
& Revlon parfumerie nail polish in Wintermint and Wild Violet}

Since it's been so cold in New York, I've been enjoying drinking fruity black tea, especially this wonderful passion berry one from a cute little tea place near me called Silver Tips. 

I haven't bought new nail polish in forever, but once I heard about these Revlon parfumerie nail polishes, I had to try them out and they're awesome! All the colors are so pretty and the scent is subtle but stays for a few days after applying. 

This video is hilarious!

UNfavorite: I heard great things about the Rimmel Show Offs (in England knows as the Apocalips), so I got one at Walgreens. The color is so pigmented and I really liked the applicator and how it felt, but I couldn't get over the strong chemical smell. Even after 20 minutes on my lips I could still smell it, so sadly it was returned.
