My KeepCup

If you know me personally, or just follow me on Pinterest, then you know that I have an attraction to a gorgeous cup of fair trade coffee (ahem, just check out my coffee&tea board). I believe that enjoying a hot beverage (like coffee or tea) should be an experience, rather than just a habit. If you really take the time to enjoy the processes of grinding grounds or steeping tea, these seemingly normal actions can become lovely little rituals during your day. Having a classy travel mug to keep them in makes these moments even more glorious. 

Enter my trusty, right hand companion, KeepCup:

It may come as a surprise to you all, but I didn't really start drinking coffee regularly until last year... my senior year of college. Actually, I vividly remember making a mental note when I was younger that I never wanted to depend on something like coffee every single morning like so many adults did... well, here I am...

I began my quest for the ideal to-go mug after the plastic one I had became stained after so much use. Being a young professional, I decided that I wanted to upgrade to a travel mug that was edgy, aesthetically pleasing and functional. Since I am trying to live a life with as little unnecessary waste as possible, I also wanted something that I could take with me while I was out and about so I wouldn't have to use as many disposable containers.

my week in objects (mostly).

Here are five things that made my week:

1. this clean and decorated corner of the apartment.

(because we crammed 11 guests into our tiny abode to celebrate a special birthday!)

2. these pretties.

(for brightening up the kitchen and being such a gorgeous, deep hue.)

my week in objects (mostly).

Getting back to reality after Easter break was difficult, but here are five little things that made my week:

1. this haircut. 

(because I said "above the shoulders," without meaning quite this short, but I'm alright with it now.)

2. this Venezuelan staple. 

(because I love my mother's homemade arepas and I can't wait to make them in my own kitchen.)
