IN THE SACK this silly season with Agent Mystery Case
Helping you survive the silly season one blog post and GIVEAWAY at a time!
Like most people at this time of year, I could do with more time on my hands and a lot more sleep. While I can’t bottle and gift you time or sleep, I can give you the next best thing. A super easy way to de-stress and it only takes five minutes from your day.
If I had more than five minutes, my favourite way to de-stress would be Nanna nap or a session in the Skindeep Medi-Spa sleep pod but most of the time, there isn’t always time for this indulgence.
THE NEXT BEST THING:
A five minute no distraction tea break with my finest china is my not so secret de-stress weapon, especially at this time of year. While my tea or coffee is brewing, I set the table and organise some healthy snacks, usually an apple, some shaved Jarlsberg cheese & a handful of nuts. Then I dedicate five minutes to myself. No phones, no internet, no exceptions. Just me, my favourite brew and my thoughts. It’s a perfect and simple way to recharge the batteries and combat the brain fog that tends to close in mid afternoon.
My afternoon me time also involves Leaf Bean Machine, who keep me caffeinated all year round with both my favourite bean (Karvan Blend No 3) and my favourite leaf (Japanese Dew Pure Tea).
While Leaf Bean Machine are located here in Perth, Western Australia, you can now purchase from them online with Australia wide delivery. If you are a tea or coffee lover they will have you sorted, with everything from Tea, Coffee and Machines.
Leaf Bean Machine love the Karvan Coffee that they roast on site and prefer you to enjoy both their coffee and Pure Tea at their freshest, which means ordering less and more often. With this in mind they have capped postage for orders under $50 to just $4. With free shipping for orders over $50. As far as I know, at the moment orders are only available Australia wide.
They also have some lovely hampers and gift ideas at this time of year. If you are stuck for ideas or want a custom made hamper, their friendly staff are only ever an email or phone call away. With the $4 shipping. I will be doing a lot of my interstate gift giving with Leaf Bean Machine this year. You should too!
I was lucky enough to attend a Christmas party recently at Leaf Bean Machine which included a behind the scenes guided tour that looked at their brewing processes and highlighted just how passionate and customer service oriented their team are. It was also the perfect opportunity for me to pick up a handful of mystery prizes for our GIVEAWAY.
Leaf Bean Machine are also providing a gorgeous INSTANT NANNA KIT (just add water), which I’m calling Nanny Gorgeous for one lucky person, which includes the cutest teapot cosy crochet kit.
Leaf Bean Machine also have an amazing GIVEAWAY running on their Facebook page where each day they fill a gorgeous basket with a different item for the 12 days of Christmas…. you will have to head over and ‘case’ their Facebook page for more details on how you can enter that one. I really want to win, so I’m not going to make it easy for you.
Here is a little sneak peek of their giveaway treats so far……
On the sixth day of Christmas my true love sent to me:
Six Stoneware Teapots
Five English Breakfast Teas
Four Filtropa Filters
Three Peach Senchas
Two travel mugs
and a bag of Karvan Blend #3
WHY NANNY GORGEOUS?!
Nanny Gorgeous is the name my girls and their cousins have given my mother. Most of the time this name really suits my mother. In the past there was the odd occasion, especially when my mother owned a farm with cattle, where you would arrive to find her knee deep in cow crap. On those occasions hearing my girls call out ‘Nanny Gorgeous’ really made me smile.
You don’t need to be a Nanna to WIN today’s prize. To be in the running for a gorgeous Nanna kit hamper from Leaf Bean Machine, just leave a comment letting me know how you like to de-stress or who you would like to sit down to tea/coffee with and why.
