Mixbook uses only the highest-quality, heavy-weight papers that are ethically sourced from sustainable forests and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and the Rainforest Alliance.

Mixbook offers 3 sizes to fit your needs for photo books. Books are printed in 1-2 business days and are completely custom to your liking.  Add your own photos and text, change the layout, add stickers and backgrounds - you are free to design a book that is an expression of you.

Libre Tea: Loose Leaf Tea Infuser For On The Go

I am a huge coffee drinker. It's a little over the top sometimes how much I can drink in one day. I did manage to quit drinking it all together a year ago, but after time I started up again. As much as I love my coffee, I am sadly getting older and can no longer enjoy a evening cup. Not being able to fall asleep or waking up feeling jittery is not ok. With all these little factors, I decided I needed to change up my routine. Considering we have a surplus of loose leaf teas, I was very excited to have the chance to review the Libre Glass Tea Infuser.
The Libre Infuser has been a wonderful addition to my mug cabinet. Since I honestly hate messing with tea balls or reusable tea bags, this allows me to completely eliminate them for my tea drinking experience. The Libre allows your to simply add your favorite loose leaf tea and hot water, place the tea strainer on and let steep. You will be able to start sipping right away. (of course, once it cools). The mug is versatile too. If you prefer pour over method, you can place you tea on top of the strainer as well, remove and enjoy. I like a strong brew, so I prefer to have the tea leave in the mug and can add water as needed. I find that I typically can get 2-3 uses out of my tea leaves.
 This tea infuser is such a brilliant design and perfect for all tea drinkers. My three kids love taking turns using the Libre. It fun for them to watch the tea leaves open up and watch the water darken and change colors. This paired with the Simple Loose Leaf subscription box would make a perfect gift this holiday season.
