I thought I’d start with some tea because I drink it a lot. I just finished a tin of Harney & Sons: African Autumn Caffeine Free Herbal Tea.
Love it, it’s one of my favorites! It has a rustic and warm taste, a bit exotic in smell but it tastes nothing like that of the aroma. When you first open the tin, the aroma is slightly strong and sometimes I’ve seen people second guess making it. Once brewed it’s not as overpowering and becomes smooth and calming. I think some people are more unexpected by the fragrance rather than having a dislike of it. Especially for people that don’t explore a lot of teas. Definitely, try this one! It’s inviting and relaxing and does wonders on moderate levels of stress. Easy on the stomach (not heavy), easy on the esophagus too, for those who are prone to acid reflux/heartburn.
I’m currently trying Harney & Sons: Mint but to be honest it tastes no different than other teas like Steep by BIGELOW’s organic Mint caffeine-free herbal tea. I’m probably going to stick to their exotic teas for that reason.
Some info on Harney & Sons: African Autumn Caffeine Free Herbal Tea.
The base of African Autumn, our popular herbal blend, is rooibos, a legume also known as 'red bush' native to South Africa. Rooibos is oxidized, which changes the color to red, and when brewed, it looks similar to the red of "black" tea. Loaded with antioxidants, fans love the brightness of the rooibos accented by cranberry and citrus.
Rooibos tea, hibiscus, cranberry flavor, orange flavor, orange peel.

I LOVE Harney & Sons. <3
It's one of my good to teas, usually I just stick with the classics though like blacks and greens,
I'm not a big herbal tea fan.
Same! Although, to be honest, I think the way that they present their product is very nifty. Some of their teas don’t taste that different from other brands and companies that I’ve tried. Yet they are almost always chic and vintage in their product design. Down to their tetrahedron-shaped tea bags made from polylactide.
I try not to have any sugar/caffeine in my tea when I’m using them to relax. Though my favorites ever are whites and blacks. I think masala chai styled teas, and vanilla chai are my go-to teas. I don’t like to add anything to them. Like creams or sugars. Personally, vanilla chai is great around the holidays. I don’t know, I always feel reminded of something pleasant when that aroma hits on a cold festivity. Kind of smells like gingerbread!
Epic cosplay wigs over Arda any day.
Arda classics are crappy unless you have a short styled cut.
I tried the silky but, it had major split ends on each side.
But even then, i like ebay.
Just keyword extra thick in the search bar when looking for wigs and you'll probably stumble on awesome quality like i did.
I literally cried over these two wigs i bought from Ebay. $17 dollars, got me this quality. The pink one was a bit more thin but still nice. For some reason this silver one was sooo flawless. I ended up cutting it for my cartiphilus wig and it came out beautiful. Considering he has one really short layer that is like half of the head, it took really well and wasn't disapointed when extra thick was keyword in the ad.
Wow, that’s good to know! I’m kind of anxious when it comes to buying wigs. I never wear them unless it’s a cosplay that needs one, which I rarely ever do anymore anyway, so I’m not the best experienced in wig hunting. One time, I got one from Amazon, through a Chinese company and that thing looked used! The inside of the cap looked faded and it smelled like all kinds of chemicals. Had to toss it! I’m not very good with treatment like you mentioned in Arda’s Silky version. Certain synthetic wigs are such a pain when they’re damaged!
I think you did a wonderful job with the cut! That color really does look beautiful too! Yeah, I think doing research into what you’re looking for is very helpful. I used to make the mistake of hopping on a wig site and browsing them for their stock. Instead of searching up specifics myself, and never even considered wig thickness! Something that's definitely easier to work on. Super helpful! :)
