October 6 on 6: Orange

This is the first month I’m taking part in 6 on 6 which was created by Scruffy Little Nerf Herder.  Basically, you’re encouraged to take 6 geek themed photos and post them on the 6th of each month.  Each month is assigned a different color and fittingly enough, October is orange.  I’m kind of shocked to see just how little I own that’s actually orange but I’m really pleased with what I came up with!

  1. Smaug + Fantasy – I love my Smaug Funko! He’s taller than a giant stack of thick fantasy books which is pretty cool IMO.  This photo shows some of my fantasy favorites and one (well, three because it’s a bind up) that I’m really hoping to get to soon, The Sword of Shannara series by Terry Brooks.  The MTV show looks incredible and I really want to read it before it premieres early next year!
  2. Currently Reading – I’m currently reading the 4th and final volume of Matt Fraction and David Aja’s Hawkeye which I was so sad to see come to an end.  I really love Jeff Lemire but I haven’t picked up his reboot just yet.  I’m also really addicted to Ranma 1 / 2 lately! I love that they’re reprinting the original in such a pretty new collection.  The 3rd volume is pictured and I’m pretty in love with the cover.
  3. Pumpkins! – These are from a recent trip to Trader Joe’s to stock up on all of the pumpkiny goodness I could find but I’m going pumpkin and apple picking this coming weekend so looking that them is getting me even more into the spirit of Fall!
  4. Halloween Mickey Jewelry – When I saw this beautiful set from FemmeDeBloom on Etsy, I knew I had to have it.  Disney and Halloween are two of the best things so combined, it makes me so happy.  Plus, it’s really reasonably priced for a set that includes a necklace and earrings.
  5. Compilation of Orange Things – As I mentioned,  I seem to be lacking things in the orange department so I started by grabbing some ginger Funko’s as a starting point, added my PSL #OrangeSleeveSociety cozy that Megan tweeted to me, a pair of pumpkin earrings I got on Etsy some time two years ago and my favorite pumpkin tea plus a pumpkin pie candle from Bath and Body Works.
  6. BB-8 – I preordered my Sphero BB-8 from ThinkGeek on Force Friday but I am still awaiting his arrival to my home so I visited one in the Disney Store in the meantime.  He wasn’t for sale, otherwise I would’ve cancelled my preorder and picked him up on the spot!

5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Teas To Consume While Blogging

As soon as my college years ended and I quit drinking coffee, I formed a strong addiction to tea.  It is by far my favorite thing to drink and I consume countless cups on a daily basis.  I love branching out and trying new flavors but since I still need to invest in a steeper for my new apartment, I haven’t been drinking many loose leaf teas as of late.  My signature drink is a treinta unsweetened iced green tea from Starbucks but for the purpose of this post and due to the never ending winter I’m going to stick to hot teas.  Here are my favorites!

1

1) Tazo Zen Tea – Zen tea is a delicious blend of green tea, lemongrass and a hint of spearmint.  It’s my current favorite tea and since it’s always stocked in my office, I definitely drink it more than all others!

1

2) Tazo Chai Tea – Chai tea is such a delight!  I drink this when I’m really craving a high dose of caffeine.  It’s a mix of black tea, cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper and spices.  The spicier, the better!

3) Yogi Kombucha Green Tea – I recently saw what kombucha looks like in a Buzzfeed post and it is just so delicious that the horrifying photos do not even deter me from drinking this in the slightest.  Proceed with caution if curiosity gets the best of you!

4) Tazo Earl Grey Tea – Mmm just thinking about the citrusy bergamot oil used in this black tea is giving me a craving.  Earl Grey is also made with lavender essence.  In fact, I think I’ll go grab some right now…

5) Trader Joe’s Organic Cranberry Green Tea – This is my favorite tea of all time and SADLY it was discontinued a few years ago.  I was actually in tears when I heard it would no longer be available.  Every sip is like a tangible perfection in your mouth.  It’s on the sweeter side and I would guzzle this tea like it were going out of style (little did I know, it would).  Every once in a while I’ll find an errant tea bag in one of my old purses and it elates me beyond belief.  I’m so hesitant to try other Trader Joe’s teas after the discontinuation of this tea scarred me for life.
