Tea Review: Libra, by Adagio

Libra from the Zodiac line by¬†Adagio Packaging On Libra’s tin we’ve got a young gal with bright pink pigtails who is holding a scale and biting her lip.

Tea Review: Cancer, by Adagio

Cancer from the Zodiac line by Adagio Packaging I feel like so many of these tins from Adagio’s Zodiac teas are pink, red, orange, or somewhere in between, so Cancer’s tin is a nice reprieve.

The History of Bra Sizing in America

I already reviewed Uplift in a previous post, but I’m not quite done talking about it.
