Did you know there was such a thing as organic herbal blue tea? Well there is…BlueChai blue tea is made from organic butterfly pea flowers. I discovered this tea recently when I received a complimentary sample to try. You can drink this tea hot or iced, and the tea, which has a blue color, can also be used as a natural food coloring. The aroma and taste of the tea is similar to green tea, but it is a caffeine-free herbal tisane. And if you like adding lemon or lime juice to your tea, you’ll get more of a violet shade. There are health benefits this tea offers that you can read about here, and when I made my tea I followed the brewing instructions at

Achieving Dreams – Cruise


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 I went on a week long cruise in the early part of April. It was really nice and it was a learning experience since it was my first cruise. Went to Cozumel, Belize, Mahogany Bay, and Grand Cayman Islands. I really enjoyed my time in almost all the places except Belize. If you cruise to Belize, DO AN EXCURSION! Don’t try to explore by yourself. It’s a poor country and they will bombard you with services. Taxis, hair, nail polish, directions – you name it, they will try to sell it to you. You can’t take two steps without being approached.

Cozumel had a really nice area for shopping but if you want the best chance of doing something fun or exploring, especially if you’re in to history, do an excursion. Mahogany Bay by far was my favorite. Beautiful beach, comfy chairs, expensive bars and other activities available. Excursion is optional but you’ll get a discount if you buy one. I loved the beaches in Grand Cayman, so much so that I forgot to take a picture. Oh well! Again, you don’t need to get an excursion but be prepared to get a taxi to get to a beach.

So, I am happy to say that I can now strike off four things off my list: 27, 28, 36, and 66! Continue reading

A lot has happened since the last time I posted. I went on a cruise and my uncle died suddenly. With all that’s been going on, I haven’t been able to update. But I will soon. I will be posting some of my cruise pictures as well as my take on movies.
