Sad to say, the Feminist Pulse is replacing me with another blogger. I can't say I blame them, I have seriously slacked on that front. I told Jaymi, the editor of the magazine and head boss, how much I enjoyed blogging with them but that I totally understand. (I wouldn't keep me either :P) I will, however, keep reading! Great stuff.

Okay so a month or so ago Andi was nice enough to turn me on to Adagio Teas and I must say, as I sit here sipping Almond Tea with milk and Splenda, that I may be able to finally give up coffee! This stuff is mm mm good.

Since Boyfriend has given up smoking, I have agreed - in order to keep him motivated and to not seem like a naggy hypocrite - to curb a couple of my bad habits. I am to choose two out of three: compulsively biting my nails and the skin around them (I know it's gross, leave me alone), eating sweets or drinking coffee. If I choose sweets and/or coffee, I can still consume, just not at the rate that I normally do. I think the coffee is doable if I stock my apartment and cubicle with delicious teas (as I've mentioned) and I think sweets is doable too since I will still be allowed to partake. That one is important because I am trying to lose weight and to not inherit diabetes from my grandmother.

Should I play Wonder Woman and tackle all three? A good manicure will curb nail biting for at least one or two days.

You are great. :)

Good luck! And I'm going to have to try that almond tea. I love anything almond. The Dewy Cherry from Adagio is amazing, as is the Hibiscus tea.
