Catching Up, Moving On & Summer 2014..








Good afternoon East Coast coffee people (and everyone else who reads). June is almost over and I have been away for far too long. Life and work have gotten the best of me. I have been having commitment issues apparently with this blog lol. But I've strayed away for far too long. I'm ready to be committed again.
I miss you all. Nothing much exciting has been happening. I had tried to reconcile with a certain someone in my life but I guess it just wasn't in the cards for us. So I have been continuing to move on the best way I know how. Little by little. Month by month. Work has been very busy and stressful. I am looking into taking classes in the fall. I'd like to get out of retail and be in an "office environment" at some point in my life. Still going to the gym keeping active which has made me very proud.
Summer is here. I have been enjoying it a lot so far. June sucked but I've been to the beach a few times already. Went out to some new bars. Got a tan. Enjoyed the sun. I hope you all have been having a good season so far and continue to enjoy the rest of the warm weather months.

National Coffee Cake Day









It's Monday, and it's raining again. I'm starting to take this whole raining on my day off thing personal. What happened to that Spring weather? Warmer temps? Nothing yet. It is very depressing. This is why us New Yorkers are so hostile. We all suffer SAD.
Well hopefully this Monday Coffee run down will cheer us all up :)

South Korea's " Strange Cafe' "







Well it's raining here in N.Y.C. What else could be new? I have off, and I have gotten so many things done this week. Do you try to have a balance of doing nothing and doing everything on your days off? Me too. Well nothing new to report here other than work and the same old. Here is an interesting article I read via Daily Coffee News by Roast Magazine about South Korea's "Strange Cafe" . Read here.

Spring Inspiration & Blue Bottle's Packaged Iced Coffee







So the weather warmed up just a tad here in N.Y.C. I have the window open as I type. Sipping on coffee of course. I have been away from home for a few months. I can't wait to go back and re-decorate for Spring/Summer. My style and taste seems to evolve and change every year as it should. I have a very modern gray/black design going on now. I am thinking of lightening the whole apartment. I think some of the dark furniture and gray walls are beginning to be a bit oppressive. So with a new fresh start that will begin very soon. It will be a fresh start for the apartment as well. I will keep certain colors/furniture that are new that we have just done recently. Here is an image that is inspiring me. We have a small apartment so maximizing light and space is essential. What is your decorating style? Do you switch it up with the seasons? Or keep the same style all year round? The image above looks so light and airy. Stylish. That's what I want in my apartment. Small size. Big impact. On that Spring note, below is an article on Blue Bottle's new packaged iced coffee.

Spring Forward Sunday Edition







Happy Spring Forward Day! I am an hour behind, usually in most things I do. Especially getting ready. It seems to take me ages just to get out of the house. Is that just me or do you guys feel the same way? Well I have off today (which is much needed after a very busy work week). I have already enjoyed two cups of coffee and it is time to catch up since it's been a while. It is almost Spring. Almost my birthday. Almost for a lot of things in my life. I am feeling more positive and uplifted lately. Some happier things have come about and I am proud of myself for dealing with everything. There are so many lessons to be learned in life from hard times and I can see them already. I am looking forward to warmer days. Being outside more. As well as continuing to get through the rest of this "storm" that has gone on for months. I hope you all slept well and are enjoying many quality cups of coffee.
