Where is your go- to place to go and get things done, think on life, do quiet times? For me it is my local coffee shops. Coffee shops and I have a love relationship, we go way back. In college I frequented coffee shops twice a day to get my assignments completed, study and read my Bible. When I was teaching this was my go to place to complete IEP’s (I was a former preschool special education teacher), do lesson planning and weekly planning. Since ending my teaching career (for now) I have been using this blog as a sort of business endeavor and hobby.
My hubby knows how important time away can be for me away from the kids so at least once a week I spend an hour or two in a coffee shop and plan out blog posts, e-mail, complete a post and read other blogs & keep up with social media.
To enjoy myself even more I like to get dolled up (however on some occasions I wear sweats depending on how late I am out) and just sit in a coffee shop. I like to bring a jacket or chambray to keep me warm as some coffee shops (like Starbucks) get chilly. There is nothing better than a cup of iced coffee and looking and feeling my best to make my blogging time better.
For this particular coffee outing I decided on wearing one of the pair of Firmoo glasses that I already reviewed and showed you on the blog here and thought I would add some leopard print into the mix to match the frames a bit. The result was pretty cute and I thought made me look rather studious. I can’t get enough on how cute these glasses are with this look, especially with my hair up in the coffee shop. What do you think?
I have teamed up with Firmoo yet again to bring one lucky reader a pair of new eyeglasses of their choice from the link here. Glasses include the frames, standard 1.50 index single vision lenses.
