Enjoy Joffrey's Teas for some Disney magic at home!

Monday, June 27, 2016

I can say with sincere honesty that I did not know much about the Joffrey's company before seeing them pop up as a coffee producer in Disney Parks and we very soon became vacation BFFs.

Although without Joffrey's I wouldn't be able to make my way through 3am extra magic hours and then get up after a few hours to ensure a ride on Test Track at park opening... at home I am not much of a coffee drinker. I am a tea girl all the way, and while I am being honest here I should admit... a complete tea snob. I swallowed the hard pill of moving for a year into a town that was a 52 mile commute each way to work, and I did so knowing that the flagship of my favorite tea brand was on my ride home.  I love loose tea and tea sachets are so convenient and the taste is so much better than tea bags that I gladly pay the upcharge for the loose-tea-in-a-tea-bag flavor.

I tried Joffrey's Black Currant loose and Earl Grey sachets this weekend (Thanks to Joffrey's for sending them to us to sample!) and they were sweet and smooth in all the right ways.  (Most notably similar to Harney & Sons if you have ever tried these.)  I was more than just pleased to find out how lovely the tea tastes but that it was direct from Joffrey's and that I can get it right in Disney Springs on my next trip to Walt Disney World! I cannot wait to enjoy the great tea drinks (I love the iced chai) on my trip and grab some tea to bring home as well. Enjoy a cup of tea at home and in the parks, and enjoy every sip thanks to Joffrey's!

A Magical Collaboration Featuring Disney and Coach

Thursday, June 16, 2016

Two American Icons collaborating equals one amazing collection!

By now you have heard that for their 75th anniversary, Coach is debuting a Disney collection online and in stores on June 17th.

We could not wait until then so we ventured down to Coach’s store in the Soho neighborhood of New York City as soon as they debuted their inventory!

The collection is every Mickey fan's dream come true.  There a ton of pieces to choose from in varying price points.  If you are not ready to commit to the $795 bag (that I am lusting after but can’t buy) there are $25 key chains that are one cuter than the next.

The collection is as timeless as all the classic Coach bags we have all treasured over the past few decades. 

I have to give a special shout out the staff at the Soho store.  Everyone was knowledgeable and brought their fun loving Disney spirit!  Shopping there was truly a magical experience.  I felt like I was in Disney for the time we spent browsing.  The store was transformed into Mickey heaven for the launch!   Here are some shots of the magic!

Coach Soho really went all out to give shoppers a magical Disney experience.  If you find yourself in the New York City area over the next few weeks, put Coach Soho on your destination list.
