favorite winter drinks

I have been absolutely addicted to coffee and tea shops. I think there is something so beautiful about chatting with a friend over a warm drink in a coffee shop or making a hot tea whilst blogging in bed. 

I love me some Starbucks, but some of the greatest drinks I have had and my absolute favorites are at the unique, quirky, non-chain shops. These kind of shops are the ones that have funky names for their seasonal beverages, really personable employees, and organic teas galore. They are the kind that give you a mug instead of a cardboard cup. Some of my favorites include Connecticut Muffin in Brooklyn NY, The Root CafĂ© in Cleveland, Drip in Madison, epistrophy in Soho, The Drawing Room in Greenwich, and Carluccio's in Cambridge. 

I also realized whilst thinking about this and deciding to do a blog post about it, that I seem to like to photograph my tea or coffee A LOT. Here are some of the photos I found from the past year:

So anyway, moral/point of this post? I don't really kno…

New Year's Eve!

Hello! I had such a great New Year's Eve and I hope you did too!  I spent the night with some of my best friends (all from high school) and it was amazing to be with all of them. We have made our party a tradition and I love it every year. They are all incredible people and I would not be the person I am today if it weren't for their friendships. I was so happy to ring in the new year with them by my side. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way :) So, here are some pictures, including the makeup I wore and fun pics with friends using my new camera which I am in love with!


Happy New Year to you all <3  2k14 is going to be a good one.  xx
