Hermes teaches how to tie a scarf


Do you wear scarves? I have some cheapy go-to scarves that I wear all the time with a simple knot at the neck. I also have three divine Dior silk scarves that were given to me years ago and unfortunately I never wear them as I don't know how to tie them properly. Hermes to the rescue...see how to tie scarves in all shapes and sizes in their video or download their Silk Knots app for smart scarf tying. I know I need help!

Of course, if you have some spare cash lying around, you can splurge on new Hermes scarf from their cute illustrated website La Maison Des Carres

start the week right : real fresh mint tea


Do you have left over herbs in the fridge or mint growing wild in the back yard? We thought a fabulous way to start the week right is to use some left over mint leaves and brew them into a fresh cuppa. It's said that mint helps aid digestion, full of antioxidants and great for a common cold. Besides that, it tastes wonderful! As an aside, fresh infused Ginger and Honey Tea is also good for colds

Herbal Infused Mint Tea
Simply grab some mint (spearmint or round mint) leaves and tie in a little bunch with cooking twine. Then pour boiling water into an heatproof cup. Infuse mint for up to 5 minutes and add sugar or honey if desired
