Che Day

On Tuesday, my first day back at uni, I visited our Co-Op bookshop on campus to soon discover a fantastic Che Guevara doll that was pleading me to take it home. So I did.

You can purchase your very own Shapespeare, Sigmund Freud or even Frida! Check out these dollies affectionately entitled, 'The Little Thinkers,' by the Unemployed Philsophers' Guild at their website as well as the other goods they have on offer. Trust me - they're worth a few chuckles :)

Back from the big week spent yonder . . .

I'm back from World Youth Day in Sydney and now home. I didn't get to do a lot of shopping whilst there (which I have no complaints about as it helped me experience a more authentic pilgrimage) but during the small amount of time we were given to roam the streets of Sydney's CBD, my friend & I discovered the dignified little tea shop off the Pitt Street Mall called, 'The Tea Centre,' at the last minute before re-joining our pilgrimage group! It is also known as, "The Glasshouse," and is so cosy!! They sell 180 different teas!! - Yum! :)
Here I bought a small tea box along with a little package of Cream tea; a black tea blend of caramel and vanilla.

There are several Tea Centres throughout New South Wales, Queensland and ACT. Check for stockists on their website; you can even order tea online!!! How cool!

I will definitely re-visit this shop to buy more tea if I am lucky enough to be in the same location as one.

World Youth Day was so amazing - more on that to come - as well as my mother's birthday, which was today!!! Hooray for my mum! I'm also jet-setting to Melbourne next week to see Band of Horses - but more on that much later. So much to post - so little patience! But for now, enjoy reading about exotic teas and learning about the benefits of tea on the Tea Centre website.
