All I Got for Christmas Was A Mental Block – Awesome, Now What?

Now Brewing: Starbucks VIA® Instant Peppermint Mocha Latte. Okay, I’m not actually enjoying one of these right now (because I’m on a #JanuaryWhole30), but I so wish I was. Best instant coffee I’ve had to date and getting them as a gift makes them extra sweet. Hello…. Is it me you’re looking for? (You thought […]

A Book is a Device to Ignite the Imagination

Now Brewing: Wide Awake Coffee Co. Hazelnut Crème, with a scoop of organic pumpkin and a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s not a PSL, but it’s sure close and Whole30–approved. The real deal will just have to wait until October 1st. Welcome to fall! With the return of cooler temperatures and all other things […]

The 15 Minute Passion Project

Now Brewing: Isagenix Organic Coffee. I never full gave up coffee on Isagenix (shhh!) but I’m so happy that they’re finally selling coffee so I can stop feeling so guilty about my habit and keep in line with my plan. Throughout high school and most of college, I used to pride myself on being able […]

Keep in Mind – Be Kind

Now Brewing: The Original Donut Shop Coffee. I’m on a mission to get rid of my remaining K-cups in the name of being more environmentally-kind. I’ve got a few of these gems left and intend to enjoy every last drop before going entirely reusable K-Cup with my Keurig.  Let’s talk about kindness. When’s it defined […]

What I Owe to My 5-Year-Old Self at 23

Now Brewing: Starbucks’ Iced Coffee. ‘Bux is trying to take away my gold card because I haven’t earned my 30 stars this year, so I figured I’d cool off with one of my faves since it’s 85 degrees here in Washington D.C. and I’m from Wisconsin (where it’s still somewhat dreadfully cold) and I didn’t pack entirely appropriately. We’ve heard it […]

Why I Don’t Regret Leaving a Perfectly Good Job (And What I Learned From Leaving)

Now Brewing: Disney Blend Flavored Coffee. I was lucky to receive a few of these sensational coffees from a friend who completed the Disney College Program. They never fail to bring a smile to my face simply because each cup brews just a touch of Disney magic right here in Wisconsin.  Despite three and a half […]

Big Girls Don’t Cry…Or Do They? How To Get Back Out There After Rejection

Now Brewing: Van Houtte Cherry Chip Swirl. I got these K-cups last year on a whim and am so thrilled that I did. These are perfect with a dash of milk and a tap of cinnamon and nutmeg on top; a fall favorite for me now.   Rejection hurts: I think that is a fact […]

What’s The Deal With Queries?! And What You Need To Know About What To Do and Not Do When Writing One

Now Brewing: Starbucks Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte. It’s baaaaaack and better than ever. I finally bit the bullet this year and registered myself for a Starbucks gift card so I could reap the rewards (okay mainly the free in-store refills). I could not be happier that I chose to do this during my favorite Starbs […]

Cost-Effective Editing That Won’t Skimp Out On Quality

Now Brewing: Coffee People’s Tree Hugger Extra Bold. I chose this cup this morning because my campus was voted on The Princeton Review’s Green College Honor Roll. I also felt that conservation related well to the frugality of today’s post and although this cup might not save you a ton of the green stuff, at […]

Everybody’s Working For The Weekend–But You Don’t Have To!

Now Brewing: Cory Collections Sequoia Dark. This is what my office is currently brewing. It is similar to the dark roasts you can find at Starbucks or other large scale coffee houses but what I truly enjoy about it is that it doesn’t leave my mouth begging for gallon’s of water afterwards. I’m not a […]
