Hi everyone! How was your holiday?

Mine was nice; I enjoyed the time with my favorite people.

Today I’m sharing with you one of my new favorite drinks and a fun tutorial how to make a vase out of a plastic bottle.

Working from home, it could get challenging to stick to my everyday plans and to do lists. I get overwhelmed at times.

Taking a few minutes for myself to relax and enjoy a refreshing drink has been my secret to staying in good shape. I’ve realized that what I eat and drink impacts how I feel, and that’s why I love the simplicity of Straight Up™ Tea.


Here is how my typical weekday goes – I workout early in the morning, then do some cooking and photography for my blog. I sometimes go out to lunch then run errands. It happens to be that I’m out for several hours and I could get very thirsty, and that’s why I can’t wait to get home to my  Straight Up™ Tea.

Being active and busy doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy yourself!

I’ve been obsessed with Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea lately, and my favorite flavor is the Sorta Sweet Honey Green Tea. It’s the perfect balance of sweetness with my favorite green tea taste.


I’m glad I got to try these teas.  Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea has two new varieties – Sorta Sweet Honey Green Tea and Sorta Sweet Rooibos – that are available now at your local Walmart.


These teas are only $1 each right now at Walmart. Stock up on these while they’re such a good bargain. You won’t regret it!

Did I mention the cool Straight Up™ Tea bottle? It could easily be upcycled, and I have a very simple craft for you. I made a metallic vase with the tea bottle. It is a simple party centerpiece, and by adding fresh flowers, it is perfect for spring.

Spring is my favorite season, and I love fresh cut flowers so much that I buy them every week. This week’s flowers are in a beautiful handmade vase made by me. This will also make a nice gift for Mother’s Day, which is about 5 weeks away.


  • What you need for this tutorial:

Straight Up™ Tea bottle, metallic spray, glue, ribbon and scissors/knife.


  • Steps:
  1. Cut the top portion of bottle with a sharp knife or scissors.





2.Spray paint the bottle with a metallic spray. (I used silver). Let it dry.


  1. Tie ribbon around the middle portion of the vase and make a bow. Use glue to secure the ribbon in place.


  1. Fill with water and add flowers.

Now you have a beautiful vase!
