Chasing Sunsets During Fall

Chasing Sunsets During Fall

I know I know it’s been forever since I posted, but school finally started and with all the homework and work, I gotta learn how to balance everything! It’s not easy let me tell you that! I had my first accounting test today and this girl don’t  do numbers! I asked my boss if I could not come in to work today so I could have time to study some more before I take it. I am so glad I did! I went in to take the test so confident! I knew EVERY SINGLE question on the test! :0 Shocked? Yes I was too! Now I know some basics about income statements, balance sheets, and statement of retained earnings! (WHO AM I?)

Anyways, yesterday I had a chance to hang out with my cousin, since he was visiting, so we decided to go exploring downtown(ish) area. I was hoping to be able to wear tall boots and a cardigan but sadly it’s still in the 80’s here. Someone needs to notify the weather that it’s not summer anymore! I want to wear sweaters and beanies and boots EVERYDAY (no joke)!

Our first stop was Indaba Coffee. I had a free birthday drink I needed to use up so it was a perfect start to our adventure.

After getting some caffeine into our bodies we spent the rest of the day trying to catch the sunset. Sunsets are seriously my aesthetic! They are so breathtaking! So if I have time to sit down and enjoy it, that’s exactly what I do!

I bought the sweater at Macy’s and absolutely in love with how comfy and lightweight it is! The dress is thrifted but originally from Forever21. I got the lovely forest green fedora hat at Target and the booties are also from Macy’s! Thank you lovelies for reading ❤

Exploring Downtown

Exploring Downtown

I ended up going to the big(er) city for the day to go shopping with two of my cousins since my town doesn’t have a mall or anything close to it. After an hr drive we were at our destination! We spent our time mostly downtown exploring the city. The city is so beautiful, especially in the fall.

And of course it wouldn’t have been a great day if we wouldn’t have had coffee. We decided to try a new coffee shop, I have been wanting to check out Indaba for a month now! It was so delicious!, I had a caramel latte, my usual of course. One of these days I need to expand my coffee selection and try something crazy!

Since were on a roll on trying new places, we decided to try Steelhead Bar & Grille, which happened to be next door to Indaba Coffee. We made it just in time for happy hour and ordered bleu cheese fries and smoked steelhead artichoke dip. The food was to die for! The fries were perfect with just the right amount of cheese! The smoked steelhead artichoke dip was served hot with a touch of jalapeno and french bread an tortilla chips. The customer service surprised me. It was packed in there, literally people were waiting to get seats and our waiter was always checking up on us and refilling our drinks. The service was really good, I am defiantly planning to go back soon!

Overall it was such a fun trip! I got a chance to get away from my little town and go shopping and explore new places and best of all I got to spend the day with some of my favorite people. More adventures to come!

As I was getting ready for work today, I realized just how much I love Autumn. The leaves outside my window were yellow and orange, it was drizzling rain and I could have sworn I smelled Autumn as soon as I walked outside. After grabbing some coffee before work, I had just enough time to snap a picture of my outfit, it just SCREAMED Autumn!

Happy National Coffee Day!

Since it’s National Coffee Day I decided to post my first blog post on this day since it ties into my blog name. I am literally addicted to coffee, well I wouldn’t say addicted but close to it lol. There is something about coffee that always makes my day better and makes me super happy about life!

I got curious and decided to research why coffee made me feel better mentally and came upon an article. There was a study done by German researchers that when volunteers drank 2-3 cups of coffee, they were able to spot positive words more quicker than negative words. Previous studies have shown that caffeine might stimulate the central nervous system and increase the brain chemical called dopamine, which is linked with rewards, creativeness, impulsiveness, and addiction.

And BAM ladies and gentlemen,we have my answer to why I might or might not be addicted to coffee 🙂 Let me know if anyone else feels this way about coffee! I can’t be the only one?
