Happy Monday all! How was your Easter weekend? I hope you had a chance to enjoy & relax!
Some people were curious about where I got my outfit and I have to tell you, I am a fan of a BARGAIN! I got the skirt (around $12) & the top (around $9) at Walmart! Every now and then, after spending a good amount of time in each food isle, I scan through the clothes & found these adorable pieces to pair together! My usual day to day is UA workout gear, but it’s always fun to get dressed up!
I really enjoyed the day outside, as it was finally in the 70’s and so so sunny! A little recap of Easter will be on tomorrow’s post but today is GIVEAWAY MONDAY yet again! Now, before you get worried that I forgot about the Vitamix Giveaway winner – don’t you worry! That will be posted TOMORROW since you all rocked it and there were over 1,200 entries!! That’s a new record for Powercakes! woo!
I honestly never thought that almost 3 years ago, starting my blog would lead me to so many amazing connections with my readers. I’ve met so many amazing friends & I honestly am so excited to wake up everyday knowing that I get to experience connections daily! I love learning about & meeting new people & companies whose products I truly enjoy. I really am all about staying true to me & choose to collaborate with companies that align with my purpose behind this website.
My soul sister Heather had a wonderful Soul Scripture post today that I really wanted to share all about aligning…
“Empty yourself of all that misaligns with your #soul, so all that does align with it can fill you up.”
Why not make today a day where you set your focus on the things that fill you up, instead of the things that may drain or empty you. YOU have the choice to make this happen let’s start this week off on a positive note! You all rock & I am so thankful for your support – always! Just wanted to let you know that.
So let’s get to the Giveaway, shall we?
If you’re anything like me, I loooove tea. Iced or hot – I’m a fan! My friends from Numi Organic Tea sent an awesome box of tea goodies to try & I’ve been in Tea Paradise ever since.
I always wondered what “pu-erh” meant whenever I would purchase this tea in stores & found that pu-erh is an ancient healing tea picked from 500 year old organic wild tea trees in Yunnan, China. Pu-erh tea leaves are piled, dampened, and turned in a unique 60-day fermentation process, resulting in a deep earthy flavor and many health benefits touted for thousands of years.
Like green or white tea, pu-erh is its own category of tea.
Richer than black tea, wonderfully smooth, and malty, pu-erh provides a natural boost of sustained energy that delivers focus and clarity.
For centuries, pu-erh has been celebrated in Chinese culture to have a myriad of health benefits. While formal scientific research is still in early stages, clinical trials conducted in China and France have found promising results that substantiate cultural beliefs and anecdotal evidence that pu-erh can help improve digestion, circulation, increase metabolism, and energy.
My favorite is the Chocolate PU-ERH Tea! I actually came across this a few years back in the grocery store & I’ve been a fan since then.
I loved getting to try out the mini-samplers that included Emperor’s, Ginger, Cardamom, Jasmine, Chocolate, & Basil Mint. As much as I love hot tea, like every night….I’m really excited to turn these tea’s into ICED TEA throughout the warmer months!!
Numi Tea recommends for hot tea, steeping for 3-5 minutes but with iced tea, steep 2 bags, cool, then pour over ice! Basil Mint would go great with fresh chopped mint leaves for some refreshing iced tea.
