Have you heard of Uncommon Goods? They have the coolest things on their site, and recently they sent me an assortment of spa type goodies to try out. They must've known how stressed I've been lately! I received their Comfort Foot Slippers, a Care journal, and a rather unusual tea cup.
The tea cup is really interesting. It has a side where you can place loose tea leaves, pour the water over, and it will strain and pour into the other side. Once the tea has steeped as much as you'd like, you can tip the cup over so that it will stop steeping. I didn't have any loose tea leaves, but it worked just perfectly with some peach herbal tea. The Care journal is full of little inspiring quotes every other page like, "You are richer today if you have laughed, given, comforted or forgiven". Nice food for thought, isn't it? Plus, I love how it easily fits in my hand - perfectly sized. The premise of the journal is to Care about building a better world. Right in line with my personality!
The foot slippers are also unique. They are not meant for walking, but rather for pampering sore feet. Perfect for my long run days. You stick them in the microwave for 90 seconds to get them toasty, then slip them on and let the herbs do the work. That's right - they are stuffed full of herbs like lavender, chamomile, peppermint, cinnamon, and more. My tired feet were so happy (and oddly enough, so was my cat Claude, who seemed quite charmed by their herbal scent).
