Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea

There really is nothing more relaxing than a good book and a cup of this delicious Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea!

Relax with a cup of Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea! | Hello Little Home

When I was a kid, I  would read nonstop, especially over summer vacation. I could finish multiple books a week for sure.

It’s been a while since I’ve read at that rate! Now I’m lucky to get through a book every couple months. So I was really excited to try the NOOK GlowLight Plus, Barnes & Noble’s newest eReader.

Of course, I had to channel my youth, so I immediately start reading Judy Blume’s latest book, In the Unlikely Event … just one of more than 4 million books, magazines and newspapers available!

Relaxing with a cup of Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea and the NOOK GlowLight Plus! | Hello Little HomeMy favorite thing about the new NOOK? The small size and light weight. Featuring NOOK’s slimmest design ever, the NOOK GlowLight Plus is light enough to carry in my purse, making it perfect for subway reading.

Another feature I love is the sleek, seamless design and aluminum body that makes the new NOOK as beautiful as it is durable. Perfect for someone like me who has a tendency to drop things!

Relaxing with the NOOK GlowLight Plus! | Hello Little HomeI’ve been sneaking in a few pages whenever I have a minute. The built-in ambient light makes reading equally as pleasurable in light or dark, rain or shine. I’ve been reading in bed more (no bright light to disturb my sleeping husband), and I can’t wait to tuck it into my beach bag next summer!

The new NOOK GlowLight Plus is also waterproof and dust-proof for worry-free reading anywhere, so of course, I had try it out in the kitchen. I love trying new cookbooks, so I downloaded The Gourmet Vegetarian Slow Cooker and got to work on a new recipe!

Making dinner with the NOOK GlowLight Plus! | Hello Little HomeThe new NOOK has definitely helped me rediscover my love for reading, and this Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea is the perfect thing to pair with a great book!

Relax with a cup of Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea! | Hello Little HomeI usually drink my tea plain, but a little milk is a delicious treat. It’s sweet and creamy with a hint of cinnamon. Plus, it takes minutes to make.

P.S. Isn’t my cutest mug? I get so many questions about it! I bought it years ago from Starbucks, and I kind of live in fear it will break … ha ha. This Cable Knit Coffee Mug is similar.
