Happy Tuesday, everyone and helloooo February! I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather lately — fighting a sore throat with cupfuls of tea and steaming bowls of chicken soup. As I type this, I am staring out Starbucks’ window at mountains of snow and sipping on Pineapple Kona Pop tea (I highly recommend you give it a try!).
If you’re hiding from the chilly temps and piles of snow, here’s a roundup of interesting reads to keep you company…
