Cup of Tea Creative: The Website

It's here! My new website! I finally bought a domain name and everything. How fancy!
I've called myself Cup of Tea Creative because it will encompass all of the creative things that I'm about.


You'll see on the homepage that I have a to-do list already. The list for this site includes...
  • New logo (right now it's just a typeset name... but I need to design something better)
  • Add design work to website
  • Add a shop section to website
  • Make things to sell in shop section on website
  • Every Pinterest craft I've ever pinned
Does anyone have any suggestions of what to add? Do any of you have a personal site? I love looking at other people's sites for inspiration, so please share your links! :)

New Website in the Works!




I'm finally putting together a website! I'm really excited to share a little bit more about myself with it. Expect to find tidbits about my life and interests beyond fashion. See you soon!

Target Wins Again!

I can't resist a cute pair of boots for fall and winter. I had such an aha! shopping trip that I had to share it with whatever readers are still out there!

Observe the below:

The first pair of boots I bought are XOXO brand (on the left). They're super cute, but they're not the most comfortable boots. I know, I know, why did I buy them? Because they're super cute! And it was a moment of weakness. Anyway, this purchase from Famous Footwear was a bit disappointing. Not only were they uncomfortable, they were extremely loud when I walked. Clomp clomp. They also set me back almost $70. Not cool.

Then, a week later I was on a Target mission (a mission to not walk past the shoe or clothing section, which I obviously failed at) and discovered almost the exact same shoes! Only these were $35! And they only had one pair left! And it was in my size! This must be too good to be true, right? Wrong! They fit perfectly!

I win! And the trip to return the XOXO boots is tomorrow.


Have a great Labor Day weekend!

To Return

I'm back! For a minute.

Since taking a break from Cup of Tea (my last post was in March believe it or not!) I've regained some of my sanity. I go back and forth between feeling okay with sharing online and then all of a sudden it doesn't feel right posting my photos to the world.

I'm here to say that I've been considering the return to the blog world, with some changes. First, I want to redesign my layout and second, I want to simplify. We'll see what that means.

Have a great 4th of July holiday weekend!

Hugging the Fridge

Happy Sunday! Today I'm mixing it up and bringing you a good old outfit post! Yesterday I attended a semi-casual spring luncheon at my friend's church. As you can see by the patches of snow behind me, it's still kinda blah looking in Michigan. My fingers are crossed that real spring weather is on the way.

I snatched this tunic from my sister's bag of giveaway clothes. So she'll probably laugh when she sees this post. It's cute and it was free!

necklace: c/o RedEnvelope // tunic: Charlotte Russe
pants: NY&Company // shoes: Mix No. 6 

I was recently given the opportunity to pick out a jewelry item from RedEnvelope to share with you! What a neat site. I'd heard of it before but never really took the time to poke around to see what they had. What the variety of gifts! I ended up choosing the Artisan Sentiments Necklace and have since been wearing it a lot. I'm very pleased with my selection!

In house news... yesterday I had my new refrigerator delivered! And I had my new range delivered this past Tuesday! I'm so geeked. I feel like I just got a new toy for Christmas and want to set it on my nightstand so I can look at it while I fall asleep. Seriously. I think I'm going to go hug it now. I'm so weird. Will share pictures soon!

Hope you're all doing well! Sidenote: did you hear that Google Reader is going away? I've started moving all of my blog subscriptions over to Bloglovin' so make sure to move yours too! :)
