New Year Resolutions: Putting It Out Into The Universe

Video

I’ve been thinking a lot about the new year. Actually, to be honest, I’ve been thinking a lot about the past year, 2011, and how it didn’t quite turn out the way I had planned. I want to change all that in 2012.

I am an actor. I wanted to be an actor to change the world (as cheesy as that sounds, but I did). Unfortunately, sometimes in our profession actors spend their lives waiting around for someone to give them the “opportunity” to change the world…or be given “permission”. We wait for people like casting directors, producers and directors to “allow” us to change the world through our work. I want to change that for myself.

So, I decided my New Year Resolution this year is to allow myself to change the world. I’m going to try to not wait around and just start doing the things I want to do…the way I want to do them. I also decided to be brave and bold in my choices.

This video is a compilation of resolutions from my friends, family and DAVIDsTEA family. My hope is that this video makes us all accountable for each other and encourages us to help each other follow through with our resolutions.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

David’s Tea Takes A Stand For Haiti

David’s Tea is taking a stand for Haiti. The fabulous tea company and a Montreal based organization called Kanpe, have teamed up to create a delicious tea infused with Mango, Hibiscus, Cinnamon and other wonderful fruits found in Haiti. All proceeds from the tea will go to ending the cycle of porverty in Haiti by encouraging financial independence. Kanpe means “to stand-up” in Hatian Creole and my hat goes off to David’s Tea and Kanpe for doing just that. To learn more about Kanpe please visitwww.kanpe.org.  To purchase some of this delicious tea head to your nearest David’s Tea or visit www.davidstea.com

DAVIDsTEA For Summer

I honestly didn’t realize I was a tea person until a friend introduced me to David’s Tea. I’m not sure if I fell in love with the tea first or the tea experience. Regardless, I now love both! Every David’s Tea store is a thing of beauty. As soon as you walk in you are greeted by a little cup of their Tea Of The Day and the aroma of some of the most delicious loose leaf teas you will ever drink….or smell. Most people who think they just want to pop in to grab a cup end up wanting to stick around and enjoy the people and the atmosphere. Oh, and I haven’t even started talking about the teas! With names like Read My Lips, Luscious Watermelon, and The Skinny you are immediately intrigued. David’s tea has done such an incredible job at making tea drinking fun, healthy and delicious! Like in fashion, David’s Tea has a new tea collection every season. This summer’s collection looks delicious…and I can’t wait to sit on my porch and try them all iced! It’s definitely one of my little pleasures in life and without fail puts a smile on my face. Right now they only have locations in Canada….but I’m sure in no time they will branch out to the US where I am sure it will also be a huge success. Oh, and did I mention that the Bloor West Village location is my favorite and has the best Ginger Cookies in the world? Well, they do.
