I have to introduce you all to Mr Malibu Dream....

This tea is soooo good. From the moment you open the jar to then letting it brew, it fills my heart, nose and life with so much joy. It is caffeine free too which means I can drink as much as I like without it keeping me awake.

Look at all them colours and shapes.

I feel that I have been super organised this year in getting ready for the Winter season. Lot's of planning needs to be done to get Tea House HQ ready and prepared for three months of being busy, busy, busy.

I always find myself leaving little bits of paper laying around bags, in diaries and forever in the bottom of my pockets. I always mean well when I say that the jobs on there will get done but in reality if they don't get ticked off and done there and then it is another ball game.

Busy B know how important it is to be organised and with being organised I like my stationary to look pretty. I need something that will make me want to tick off the to-do items on my to-do list and actually well, do them.

Their amazing notepads, list pads, weekly planners are an absolute steal from just £4.99. Pop over and see what they have on offer as I am pretty sure you won't be dissapointed. I may even start getting some presents bought this week from Busy B. As you know I love a good old independent business when I set my sights on them, and I know some of this stuff would be perfect in a few of my friends stockings.

So it was time to take a breather and sit down to write my lists on the Oh So Clever List Pad* and jot away some ideas in my new Cream Floral Notepad* while sipping on this weeks Tea of the Week - Malibu Dream.

It tastes amazing!! I am a sucker for coconut and this fruit tea really packs a punch.

Packed with apple, pineapple, rosehip and hibiscus with the creamy undone of coconut makes this perfect for a morning boost to refresh you for the day.

You can pop over to our Etsy Store where we sell all of our tea's if you want to try it out for yourselves.

Malibu Dream // 50g // £4.50 //100g // £7.50

Thank you Busy B for helping me organise my life. I feel back on track and ready for the crazy season ahead.

I think I have made it. I think I am now an official hashtag beauty blogger. Ok, well maybe not a fully fledged #bblogger but I am working on it.

My lovely tea lady and fellow blogger Megan - Thumbellia Lillie was invited to the launch of Fleur de Force's beauty launch in London last week and of course I jumped on board.

Now I ain't guna lie, I have never followed Fleur on any social media channels up until a few months ago. Her vlogs just hypnotise me making me want to buy everything she shows in her hauls. You have got to give some credit to today's bloggers and vlogger's and how much effort and time goes into filming on these channels.

So away we go. We popped on the train down to London to the Haymarket Hotel just off Piccadilly to see what Fleur's new beauty range had to offer and to celebrate in style with other bloggers and Youtubers.

It was beyond my expectations, like seriously. I found myself just gawping at everyone. I am ever so sorry for that if you were one of them. Not a good look Carli! I got to meet some lovely people, some of which I have read their blogs for a lonnnngggg time now. We chatted over candy floss and yummy mango cocktails.

The launch was beautfully curated in the spa of the hotel with amazing floating candles in the pool, gold sofas, little mini burgers and goats cheese balls to nibble on everywhere you turned. There was poolside DJ mixing up some tunes, a photo booth and even a blooming candy floss machine. My life was made up.

We got stuck right in posing away in the Fleur de Force photo booth with some new blogger friends who I got to meet in real life and not looking at through on my computer screen. Big up to Faye from Fayefix, Em from My Pale Skin, and Victoria from In The Frow.  Excuse the grainy iPhone photo's below.

I got to mee the lovely Kris from Coppafeel again after a brief meet up in a Clapham Common bus stop 5 years ago, and I got to rub shoulders with Lydia from TOWIE. She really was a treat and such a stunner.

And last but not least the lady of the night Fleur de Force. We thanked her for inviting us and bid our farewells, then it was time to be on our to way to grab pizza and a lifetime supply of chocolate bars from the 24/7.

A huge thank you to Feel Unique for letting me tag along and stare at my internet faves.

I really did have the best time with my partner in crime. We are going to tottle off now and get some more adventures booked.

As a born again beauty lover, what has even happened to my life?

I actually love to wake up with my skin being able to breathe and feeling fresh. I exfoliate, cleanse and moisturise twice a day. Yes I know, it's the way it should have been treated from way back when.

It's time for my skin's second life. Better late than never hey?

I am most certainly not a beauty blogger by any means. I mean, until few months ago I didn't even take my makeup off properly before bed. I know! Breaking some rules right there.

We all have imperfections and certain parts we hate about ourselves. I most certainly 100% do. It is time to change and embrace my skin as it is so this post is a little out of my comfort zone so please do be gentle.

Here is me getting my skin out. No make up. No nothing.

If Murphy Pop's could speak then he would well and truly be thanking me for being the best dog parent ever! I mean this pup gets more things through the mail than me.

Murphy want's to introduce you all to his new monthly subscription box from Barking Rad*. It really is the coolest dog box ever.

Monday morning is here again. What better way to start the day than a delivery of fresh flowers to kick start the end of these summer days.

If you have been keeping up to date with The Tea Bee you will know that I have recently been up in bonny Scotland with Edinburgh Napier University with some fellow North East bloggers Megan - Thumbelina Lillie, Gianni - The G Edit, Beth - Polished Couture and Amy - Amy Gatenby to sample uni life and see what the city has to offer.

I can honestly say it has a hell of a lot to offer. You can check out the uni here and the city here Edinburgh Napier Experience - Part 1 - The Uni & Edinburgh Napier Experience - Part 2 - The City.

Now for the food glorious food...

Now, I have always wanted to visit Bibi's Bakery but never had the chance, until now that is.

Check out this macaroon tower.

As I am a MASSIVE supporter of independent businesses and all that, the best way for me to show and demonstrate this support is to go to these yummy places! Whether it's for clothes, beauty or food to try, I love to sample these delights for myself.

I mean there is NO other way! Not if the delights look like this:
