Coffee Adventures


Rolling Stones & Coffee “Rockin’ Morning, Champ”

Today’s coffee adventures includes an amazing, hand-me down from my boss, Rolling Stones 1972 Tour t-shirt and a hot frickin’ day. In New Orleans, it’s so hot. Like, I’m sitting in this office right now, sweating. I’m not moving period, but I’m sweating. Atleast, I have an awesome Bobbie Gentry Pandora station to help ease the heat ache!

Caffee Machiatto with Milk- Sweet Love

Today’s coffee pick is a Caffe Macchiato! It can either be a doube or triple shot of Espresso, infused with a small amount of milky foam on top!  “In Italian, Macchiato literally means ‘marked’ or ‘stained (with)’. This coffee is ‘marked’ by a drop of milk, which differentiates Caffè Macchiato from dark Caffè Espresso.Caffè Machiato has two variants: Caffè Macchiato Freddo (with cold milk) and Caffè Macchiato Caldo (with hot milk). Freddo is good if you are in hurry or can’t wait until your coffee gets to a drinkable temperature.”

Not really for your mother, but you know, it does sound catchy! So, I love coffee, but now that I’ve been on my Buff & Tough regime I try to avoid it or take it in small doses. I was browsing the Starbucks website and found a little nutrition breakdown on every thing they sell! I was stoked, needless to say. So, I figured I’d share. I know I hate consuming foods/drinks without knowing what it consists of. This is just a little teaser. The site has every option.

A HodgePodge of Goodies :)


I’m just in a blogging mood these past few days…even though I have tons of work to do for school. Guys, when people tell you your senior year of college will be crazy, they meant it! Anyhow, as I promised here’s a fun little mixture of random tid bits that currently interest me.


How to ‘Burlesque’-Up

I’m in a burlesquing mood these days (okay, due to Cher/Christina Aguleria’s new movie); here are a few tips from stylist Rachel Zoe on how to add a little splash of Burlesque to your look.

A.) Pearls and Feathers add a lovely taste!

B.) Leather

C.) Red Lips

D.) Lace

E.) Your ‘WERK’ Heels

(Here’s a list of the things I give a 2 thumbs up to!)

For Colored Girls– This movie is such a wonderful blend of artistic beauty, with its fusion of amazing acting, poetry, dialgoue, human struggles, and human triumphs! Def. a must see. It was originally a play consisting of poetry!

Rain Boots, seems like I’m using these now more than ever around here.

Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte, what a warming way to get in the holiday spirit! Of course, I order this with nonfat milk and no whip. But, if you want to splurge every now and again go for it!

Chapstick and  Petroleum Jelly, I prefer Burt’s Bees or Lipsmackers and the PJ is cheap but oh so effective!


Kathy Griffin as Cher 🙂


Newly purchased books! Oh, how I am so addicted to book shopping!


Christina Perry’s Jar of Hearts video- this is so beautiful and tremendously captivatingly alluring. The video is so artistic, and from a dancer/choreographer POV it’s just simple in the most natural, glorious way! I love this so much; the song is lovely and identifiable!


Alanis Morissette’s “Not As We”: she’s gorgeous, simple yet complex, and honest as nature’s winds. This is such a laid back, contemporary tune. I love it and the video is just full of gorgeous scenary.



My Lovely Disorganized Cognitions

This week has been eventful! I’ve had two exams, stayed up (studying) for over 48 hours,becoming a regular at a cool little coffee shop, admired the beginnings of the fall winds dancing along the spines of many leaves, and consumed more coffee than StarBucks can serve in one day..

and I re-read Marya Hornbaucher’s Wasted; oh, how I love that wonderful piece of literary art! I love my ear-clipped, coffee splattered, tattered, pen/highlighter markings that accompany the pages. Anyhow, today was my fiance’s 26 birthday, it was warmly delightful complete with silly string, letter candles, my mommy’s home made chocolate praline cake and baked spagetthi!


Pumpkin painting, dance teaching, facebooking,browsing post secret, developing a strange fascination for insomnia, consuming a dreadful hunger for an array of fashion magazines, oh and did I mention saving 2 friends from going to jail? All in a day’s work.


Who could ask for more, right?
