The Magical Journey of the Pink Boxing Gloves

I was so happy when a massive parcel arrived at my front door. I had know idea what it could be, I was so excited to open it up and see the magical pink boxing gloves.

These boxing gloves are travelling the world all thanks to Ally from the Shybiker, who has organised what I like to call, " The Sisterhood of the Travelling Boxing Gloves". These gloves have travelled more than I have they have done the rounds of USA and Canada and now they are in Australia.

It is such a sweet idea and a lovely way to find new blogs and to empower all of us. I got a little zap of happiness when I put them on and I had so much fun taking these photos. Other than when a car drove past and saw me, I always get embarrassed when that happens but with bright pink boxing gloves on, it is even more embarrassing.

I couldn't help my self and had to wear my new pink dress to be all matchy matchy. I also thought these trees were a perfect backdrop, don't you think? Well the gloves are leaving me now and I'm sad to see them go. I just want to say a massive thanks to Ally for organising such a fun swap. I can't wait to see where they end up next.

Hi, I'm Luan.
I'm starting new and fresh with my blog. I did think about starting a new blog and unfortunately all the good blog names are taken. So I decided to stay with Green Tea and Cupcakes. I feel like I have changed over the years of having this little blog and that I am not being authentic to who I am anymore. So let me introduce or reintroduce myself to you, I am Luan.

♥  I am 41 years young
♥  I am happily married to Jeremy
♥  I have two pets Mindy Cat and Leonardo Fish Face
♥  Personality type is ISJF introvert, sensor, judger, feeler
♥  I am a Leo
♥  I work in insurance (boring)
♥  I am happiest when I am at the beach
♥  I love photography
♥  I love bush walks especially mountain climbs
♥  I love tarot cards, crystals and moon magic
♥  My biggest project is giving back in some way every week
♥  I am learning to meditate which isn't easy for someone with ants in her pants.
♥  I am starting a massage course at the start of next month and I am so excited!!!

If I am not blogging I am probably journaling in my radical self love bible, reading a good book, flipping tarot cards, watching trashy reality TV, walking the cat, exercising and really just crushing on life.

I hope you enjoy the changes I am trying to make to my blog and that you visit often.

Hello, sorry that I went AWOL on you. I have been feeling a bit stuck, in every area of my life including my blog. I have enrolled in a few e courses, started a "Feel Great In 8" through work, started clean eating, exercising, meditating and just really looking after myself. Basically I have now given myself full permission to be UNSTUCK!!!!! I am feeling so much better on so many levels. So get ready for some changes around here, new posts, new ideas and a couple of giveaways to celebrate a couple of milestones. That I forgot to celebrate.

Day 15: What Kind of Person Are You Attracted To? #26DayBloggingChallenge

If I lined up all the people I am attracted to, there is no pattern.

Looks are not everything although you do have to have some form of attraction for your partner.

The things that attract me the most are confidence, sense of humour, a big personality, kind, caring, giving and a big massive heart.

Day 14: What is your Star Sign and Do You Feel The Traits Are Like You?? #26DayBloggingChallenge

Leo's are supposed to have a lovely mane of hair, unfortunately my flat lifeless hair does not agree with this Leo trait.

Leo's are supposed to be attractive and I think I'm pretty much average on a good day.

Not one to mess with, well you would have to do something absolutely terrible for this little kitten to roar. Needless to say if I see someone I love is being mistreated, I will back them in a heartbeat. I think that's where my being loyal comes in.

Really good at almost everything, I totally disagree with. I am still hunting for my natural talent. Everyone has one and unfortunately I haven't found mine yet.

Everything else on the list above I do agree with, although I have never kissed myself so I am unsure if I am a good kisser.
