Oprah Winfrey Teavana Starbucks Tea Review

Teavana Oprah Chai Tea: Sip On This! Coye Goes on a Winfrey-Inspired Solo Tea Date

To say that I am tea-obsessed is probably an understatement. I come by my tea-ness honestly, my parents are from a former British colony and it turns out that they were right in their assertion that “have a hot tea” can cure almost anything! My friends know I drink hot tea all summer, my mother has a cabinet filled only with tea, my sister makes fresh teas, and I generally drink (at least) two or three kinds of tea a day.

Be sure to watch the video with Oprah’s tea ritual after the jump. I haven’t tried the Oprah tea yet, but luckily, our super blogger Coye LeRocke has! Let’s see what Coye has to say on the matter… 

The Swirl Movie – Interracial Relationships

‘The Swirl’! Brianna Cox Reviews a Controversial New Film on Interracial Relationships

My fabulous friend Christelyn Karazin is the go-to expert when it comes to interracial dating and women feeling empowered to make their own choices about their love lives. Yes! A couple of months ago, I interviewed Christelyn about her fun, new web series “Swirlr” for my Mommy Noire column. An interview with Christelyn is also featured in my new mind-body-spirit advice guide, “The Sacred Bombshell Handbook of Self-Love.”

I haven’t had a chance to check out their comprehensive new documentary “The Swirl,” but the wonderful Brianna Cox is one the case. You can find the trailer for the film and find out how to see it after the jump.

Brianna is working with me this summer as a Media Liaison. Let’s give her a round of applause for her first post on this blog. Take it away, Brianna…

The participants in my program find Hannah’s daily video lessons easy to follow and empowering. She also creates custom yoga videos on-demand.
