Im Tea. Take a peek into all that is apart of me.
  • Thrifty TEA

    As a young in one of my favorite pastimes was shopping with my mother. She used to take me shopping to cool spots including The Salvation Army or this local thrift store called The Potters House. As I matured, I used to wonder why we didn’t shop at all the stores in the mall like my peers. I wasn’t aware then but I she was teaching me something. Ma taught me that I don’t have to spend a fortune on my clothing to be fly or on trend. She also taught me just how clever I could be in creating looks.

     Thrift stores carry clothing of all types including a wealth  vintage garments that have shown to stand the test of time. I enjoy utilizing my creativity to create my looks and thankful for my mommas teachings. My outfit  is usually completely thrifted :) and between you and I, I enjoy spending my savings on sushi ;)

    Quality doesn’t have to cost a fortune, just a bit of your time.

  • Be.

    It’s taken some time for me to learn to live in the present moment. I had to learn that right now I am exactly where I need to be. When working on my craft this lesson is gold. For one to capture my true essence, I must be present, must be fearless and must be, me. I can’t be distracted by what was,for that is no more. I can’t cloud my mind with what ahead, for that has yet to come. The life long task of constructing that which is Tea is indeed challenging. I choose to believe I come fully qualified and equipt for the journey. I just have to remain present, and simply be.

    My fellow beings…my challenge to you,

    Be.
