Want to be a better employee? Sit next to your boss

Now Brewing: Chameleon Cold-Brew. Love this stuff more than words could begin to describe. Since I’m on a Whole30 right now (actually going for 100 days this round!) I’m sticking to the basic Black brew. “Oh great, an organizational change,” I remember thinking when I read the email that our team would soon have a […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Hold The Elevator: How To Pitch Your Writing Like a Pro

Now Brewing: Archer Farms Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans. Okay I know it’s not exactly coffee but these are really a great mix of the coffee taste I love and the chocolate that I love to hate. I found these at Target and I like to have them around for a mid-morning crash when I’m craving […]

Do What You Love and the Money Will Follow

Now Brewing: Donut House Collection: Cinnamon Roll. Yeah, it is as good as it sounds. I take any coffee I can get these days but this was a special treat. My family’s coffee maker broke so we got to try some flavors at home. One of my favorites was a blend like this so I […]
