My love for Starbucks coffee is chronic, in late evenings I look forward to the morning time in which I can make myself another cup.  I've been using the Classic Pour-Over brewing method from Starbucks for the past month and I find myself grabbing for this over the French Press as of late. 

The Classic Pour-Over sits directly on top of the cup that you plan on enjoying your coffee from

Using a #2 coffee filter, add your coffee.  
Side Note: 
I recently purchased a coffee grinder and it has taken my coffee to another level.  Trust me, the little things really do count in creating the perfect cup. 

After using the Classic Pour-Over a few times to get taste that I desire I found that when I grind the coffee really fine it creates the best flavor.  Simply amazing and I look forward to it every single morning.

What is your favorite blend?

 You don't have to depend on others to make you feel special with a beautiful bundle of flowers. Any time I see a beautiful bundle of flowers at my farmers market I always pick some up to liven up my house.  A friend of mine once tried to make me feel bad for buying my own flowers-- it's not like I tried to make it seem like they were from some secret admirer.  This beautiful bouquet is from The Bouqs; I've raved about them in the past and they are still at the top of my list when it comes to finding a unique bouquet for special occasions and well,  just because.

I really love the fact that with The Bouqs there is no way you can forget a special day since you can schedule dates to send flowers to different individuals.  I always have a million things on my plate and start my day with a list of things to complete so not having to feel guilty about a date that slipped my mind makes things better.

Try out The Bouqs to liven up your living space or office and schedule to send flowers out on those special dates in the near future!

My newfound lifestyle of minimalism has changed me in many ways.  I've gotten rid of a lot of unnecessary items and I avoid purchasing things that won't fit in effortlessly with the wardrobe that I currently have. The entire process of minimalist living has taught me not to over consume but to buy each piece with discretion.  I believe that creating a capsule wardrobe is important; you may notice that my looks have become gray-scale.  As a previous sucker for all things bright, I've realized how I'd missed out on the beauty of the classic hues of black, white & gray.

My shoe selection is pretty minimal as well, keeping my same hue scheme for the most part but adding nudes and blush colors for a pop of color.  *It really is humorous that I'm considering blush colored shoes a pop of color!*  These classic cut ankle boots from DSW have become my favorite;  I've worn them with tunic dresses and I've even paired them with sweatpants!  I crave versatility in the pieces that I own.  Getting ready in the morning is so easy because everything has harmony and can be layered differently to create a whole new look!  I've raved about just how much I love DSW and the way they treat their customers, I believe it makes their shoes even better!

My little guy, Carter wanted to say hi!
