Friday Freebies!

Happy, happy Friday Open-mouthed smile!!!

I am SO ready for the weekend – my family is coming up to visit and it’s going to be fun! We have plans for floatinis, movie watching, froyo eating, and having lots of laughs.

And to start your weekend off right, I’ve got a couple of giveaways for you!

First –


A few weeks ago, I received these new teas from Celestial Seasonings to sample (the samples were sent to me free, but my opinions are my own).

I was sent three new Antioxidant Max Green Teas to try and their new Sleepytime Decaf Lemon Jasmine Green Tea.


Antioxidant Max Green Teas

Combining the health benefits and smooth taste of Celestial Seasonings green tea with delicious, nutrient-rich superfruits, these new wellness blends contain 35% more free radical-fighting flavonoid antioxidants than other leading flavored green teas and provide 20% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C with each serving. Available in three flavors:

• Blackberry Pomegranate

• Blood Orange Star Fruit

• Dragon Fruit Melon

Sleepytime Decaf Lemon Jasmine Green

The newest variety in the lineup of delicious, health-supporting green teas features the well-known blend of chamomile, spearmint and lemongrass featured in the bestselling specialty tea of all time, Sleepytime herbal tea, but adds healthful decaf green tea and a refreshing, calming lemon jasmine

These came at the perfect time, too. I don’t drink hot tea much in the summer, but in the winter, that’s all I want during the day.

I already love their regular Sleepytime Tea, but the new Lemon Jasmine Green is delicious! I think it will be my new bedtime tea.

Out of all the new teas, I liked the the Blackberry Pomegranate and the Sleepytime Lemon Jasmine the best! But I definitely enjoyed them all.

Also – and this is something I love – Celestial Seasonings’ tea boxes use 100% recycled paperboard, including 35% post-consumer waste, and can be recycled again when empty. AND their natural fiber tea bags are manufactured through a totally chlorine-free (TCF) process, meaning that no dioxin is released into the environment. Plus, they never contain starch or gluten, and they’re completely biodegradable and compostable – making them better for you and for our planet. Best of all, because our unique pillow-style tea bag doesn’t need a string, tag, staple or individual wrapper, we save 3.5 million pounds of waste from entering landfills every year! Pretty cool, right?


Want to win these teas to try for yourself?

One lucky winner will get the package pictured above, which includes one box of each of their new flavors.

For additional entries:

And remember the Chobani Holiday Recipe Challenge I participated in?

Well, all of the recipes have been posted on their Facebook page and if you vote, YOU have a chance of winning an entire year of yogurt! Yup – a whole year of free yogurt. Can you imagine?

Enter here for you own chance at an oven mitt, a tote bag, and most importantly, an entire year’s worth of Chobani!


Happy Friday!

Fashion for this week coming soon…

    My favorite tea (currently…I am a huge tea fan and find new loves often) is Honey Lemon Chamomile from Celestial Seasonings. I live in Denver, so I’ve visited the Celestial Seasonings factory in Boulder twice!

    I would like to recreate an amazing honeybush tea blend I bought in Germany because it was called Emily (my name). I have no idea what’s in it b/c the ingredients are listed in German!

    My favourite tea at the moment is
    Lemon Zinger by Celestial Seasonings in the morning, and sleepy time plus at night time.
    Living in Ireland, CS isn’t the easiest herbal tea to find, but when I do find it I always bulk buy it :)

    I really love sleepytime tea varieties. I think it’s a placebo effect, but they totally relax me at bedtime.

    If I could have any tea….

    Alright this might sound odd, but I love the flavor of grapefruit, and I think it would be so delicious as a tea. Maybe with a hint of lemon or mint. Weird, right?! :)

    Lately I am obsessed with all things mango – so I’d love a flavor that involves mango!

  34. #
    Mercedes — February 4, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    My FAVORITE tea of all time is TAZO’s Passion tea. It’s caffeine free and is a blend of hibiscus, lemongrass, rose hips, mango and passion fruit. when steeped to it’s full potential it’s rather strong, so I usually make at least 2 cups from one bag. It makes a great iced tea as well!

  35. #
    Mercedes — February 4, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    If I could make my own tea it’d have rose hips, hibiscus and pomegranate (I’m POM obsessed!)

  36. #
    Erin — February 4, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    I really like honey vanilla chamomile! Mmm I’d love to try some of those flavors!

    Christine — February 5, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    I think the blueberry pomegranate sounds really great!

    Elizabeth — February 5, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    I’m not sure about the teas you reviewed, but several of Celestial Seasonings’ holiday teas do contain gluten (usually from barley malt). But the company is super awesome about clearly labeling their teas as “Gluten free” or “Contains gluten”.

    Taya — February 6, 2011 at 7:32 am

    I love hot tea in the winter! My two favorites are earl grey (with a little milk!) or Tazo Berry Blossom White! My family thinks I’m crazy because I’m always willing to try new flavors!

  45. #
    Amy — February 7, 2011 at 9:46 am

    my favorite is plain old chai!

  46. #
    Amy — February 7, 2011 at 9:50 am

    If I could create my own flavor, it would include vanilla and almond!
