Graduation Present: Maui Trip #coffeeedition

Graduation Present: Maui Trip #coffeeedition

HI! I know it’s literally been months since I posted because so much new things has been happening in my life! As you can see I finished my Business degree and bought myself a ticket to Maui to visit my best friend! I made a post about my bestie here! Check it out if you are needing things to do with your best friend! So Diana (the bestie) ended up moving to Kihei, Maui with her hubby and I got to go and visit her for 10 days! I just flew back home on Saturday the 6th of May! I posted a few pictures on my instagram of the trip at justalittlebitofcoffee!

We did so much exploring and adventuring in Maui that I know it will take a few posts because I took over 1,000 pictures so will have to narrow it down and choose my favorites! This post will be all about the coffee shops that I got to go to! My most favorite breakfast/coffee place was Belle Surf Cafe Coffeehouse & Crepes. One of my photos from my instagram got featured on their instagram page! The cafe was literally 3 minutes from my friends house which made it perfect to start the day there! The baristas are the nicest there! Always friendly and super fast service! Honestly the thing I miss most about my Maui trip was all the coffee dates I got to go on with Diana! I miss the talks we had over our coffee!

Another of my favorite coffee shops was Akamai Coffee Co. This is another coffee shop within a few minutes of my friends house. Their interior is soooo cute! Very bohemian! We came here a few times during my stay in Kihei, Maui.

Quick story: So while we were driving to get my last coffee before I was to fly out we see whole bunch of cop cars parked in front of the coffee shop blocking the road and having people detour around. We think nothing of this and head to park in the back. We start walking up to the coffee shop’s back door and see a guy sitting on the pavement in handcuffs with a cop wearing all green and holding a rifle talking to him. There’s a crowd now watching the guy but we walk in and ask the barista what is going on. Apparently there was a bomb threat next door inside Jack in the Box and all the businesses were being evacuated. As I start handing my card over to pay for my drink a muscular guy holding a rifle walks in and tells us that they are treating the threat as real and we need to evacuate the premises! My friend and I head to Akamai’s drive through location cause we still needed our caffeine! After my friend tells the baristas what just happened in their other coffee shop the girls give us free coffee for being loyal customers! What a morning that was! 

With our free coffee!!!

In Paia we ended up going to 2 different coffee shops. Our first one was the Honolulu Coffee, we stopped here twice, on two different days and enjoyed the delicious coffee. Before our drive to Hana we stopped by Paia Bay Coffee for breakfast. The food was super good and coffee even better!

Overall I was impressed with how good Maui’s coffee was! I remember when I went to Florida on vacation and couldn’t find ANY good coffee shops with good coffee! I will definitely be back to Maui! I will be making another post of the beaches and the road to hana that we took, the aquarium we visited when it rained and the whales blow hole we hiked down to! Love you daisies! ❤

Happy Friday!!

I seriously can’t believe how long it’s been since I posted anything in here! I’ve been sick for the past 2 weeks and not having energy to do anything! Itsucked! I went to work and then class, did my homework and came home to sleep. That’s allll i did! I am feeling way better and got my energy back. While I was sick I got 200 of you beautiful daisies following me! What an amazing feeling! I couldn’t thank you guys enough! ❤ ❤ ❤ I also got nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by itsnaly and will try to do that this weekend! You all have been such a blessing in my life! I’ve made some amazing friends and look forward to meeting more! I have made an instagram page recently, add me justalittlebigofcoffee so I can follow you guys!

I have 3 more weeks of school left so that’s kind of stressing me out at this moment. I also got a second job couple days ago (will make a post about that soon) but haven’t started yet. I will be juggling school full time, homework, and 2 jobs for the next 3 weeks which will be a headache but after 3 weeks I will just be working at the new job and I will have wayyyyy more time to focus on blogging!

Anyway! Today I wanted to post a pinterest inspired outfit that I have been wanting to try since forever! The pictures below I found on pinterest! I love the slip dress look over a long sleeve turtleneck! It’s soooo cute and comfy at the same time! Also space buns are sooo adorable and I thought they would be perfect with my outfit!

 

Let me know what you guys thought of my styling? I have been using pinterest for my outfit inspirations at least 2 times a week! I have another one that I am thinking of recreating that is Tumblr inspired! With the weather being nicer and nicer everyday I think my motivation to actually go out and do stuff is coming back! I love you guys! XOXO! ❤

Coffee Study Time & OOTD

Coffee Study Time & OOTD

Happpy Friday my lovely Daisies!

Today was one of those days where I knew I had some homework due but didn’t want to stay home to do it. So I decided to go to a different coffee shop then my usual one I go to. Awakenings is closer to my house and I used to go to it literally allllllll the time that all the baristas memorized my name. It’s a super cute coffee shop that is connected to a church and plays christian music all the time which is pretty amazing!

But before going I was in a rut as to what to wear. I wanted something comfy but edgy at the same time. SO I turned to pinterest. One of the trends that kept popping up was fishnet tights! I seen this trend all over tumblr and now it was all over pinterest. Since I knew I had some fishnets somewhere in my closet I decided to give it a try! And what better way to wear “holy” jeans in the winter then with tights underneath to stay warm. Here are some of the pictures that kept popping up on pinterest and what I used for inspiration.

Here is how I styled my fishnet tights for the winter wear! Let me know if you tried this trend already and what you think about it? Me personally I LOVE it!

Survived the First Day Back at School After Winter Break!

Survived the First Day Back at School After Winter Break!

Good Morning my beautiful Daisies!

I hope everyone had an amazing and unforgettable New Year! I still find it hard to believe it’s 2017 already and school started once again. Something I did in 2016 was procrastinate alot when it came to school. I was always stressed out and turning in homework last minute. I know that if I would have organized my week better I would have been less stressed out and enjoyed my school experience better. So this year I decided to finally organize and get stuff done on time. Being organized is even more motivating since this quarter is my last quarter in school! It’s kind of hard to believe that in 3 months I will have my business degree!

Today I wanted to share with you guys how I started my first day back to school and work after a 3 week winter break. Going to bed early is something new to me since I am used to going to bed close to 3am! I went to bed early on Monday knowing that I had to be up at 6am. Since I ended up going to bed super early I woke up yesterday pretty early around 4am! I felt nice and refreshed! I had time to make some coffee and eat breakfast and actually do my makeup, compared to last year, I would wake up 2 minutes before I had to be out the door and not eat till 4pm sometimes.

I left the house at 7am since I had to buy a parking pass and I knew that it being the first day back there would be a huuuuge line! I was right I ended up waiting in line for a good 20 minutes! It was 2 degrees outside at 7am and let me tell you I was glad I wore a thick turtleneck sweater underneath my coat! I bought a red bull drink the day before knowing that I would need the extra boost on my first day back!

I had to be at the college at 8am since I am a work study student and had work till 10:15 and then had a 2 hour class right after at 10:30 till 12:30pm. I have been working at the college library as a work study student for about a year and a half now and I LOVE IT! I love meeting new people at the college since I am mostly at the circulation desk checking books or laptops out and shelving once in a while. When I clocked into work at 8 am I spend the next 2 hours of my shift shelving books, since we were on break for the past 3 weeks, there were a lot of books that were returned on the last day of class. After shelving I had a little time before class started to water our plants at the library.

I am taking 3 classes this quarter. I am taking Fundamentals of Advertising, Social Media Marketing, and Micro Economics. For Fundamentals of Advertising our teacher said for our final project we are going to choose a small business and design a advertising campaign for their company. I am nervous but excited at the same time because I know this will come in handy when I will be working on opening my business in the next 6 months.

After the 2 hour class I meet up with my cousin at Panda Express for some lunch and then we headed to our favorite coffee shop, Vessel Coffee, I talked about it here if you are interested.

 

After enjoying our coffee’s we popped into an antique store next door and browsed around. We found some ooooooold books! They were sooo cool! I wish I owned ALL of them!

I ended the day by going to the gym and doing 30 minutes of cardio on the treadmill and did a few weight machines that focused on quads, hamstrings, and glutes. I woke up today really sore! Loving the feeling of finally being back at the gym.

I am sorry if this post was loong but I wanted to get in how I totally changed my routine from last year and feeling more confident in everything! With my schedule being more organized I am hoping to keep on blogging into this new year! 2017 is going to be spectacular I can feel it! Hope you lovelies will have an incredible Wednesday today and I am off to get ready for work! Love you guys sooo much! ❤

Life Update and Winter OOTD

Life Update and Winter OOTD

HI my beautiful and amazing daisies!

It’s been forever since I posted on here and let me tell you, the more closer I was getting to finals and winter break the more homework and projects I needed to turn in. I was stressing out every day worrying about school and homework and feeling down that I haven’t been able to post in a while and I missed all you guys so much! This is my third year in college and I have NEVER had a more stressful, hardest, and longest quarter then then the one I just finished.  Yes I am ALL done with this quarter! FINALLY! The only plans I have for the next three weeks is to read by the fire and drink coffee all day long, well maybe go snowboarding once or twice! I am a grandma when it comes to snow and cold!

Today was my first official day of winter break and it snowed like crazy! I did a little shopping with my sister since our refrigerator has been empty for a little bit. At first driving in the snow was reallly stressful but the more we drove the more comfortable I got and kind of even enjoyed it. We then grabbed coffee at a new location that opened up next to where I live called Wake Up Call. I’ve been there before but since it was 30 minutes away I never went there! Now I got a punch card and everything! It’s suuuper cute!

After grabbing coffee we spent the rest of the day exploring at least 4 different vintage/antique  shops! They had such cute stuff! We found cute little plastic succulent plants in mugs and they were adorable! Sadly they were $15 for each cup! I want to do a DIY maybe in the spring for them cause I can’t find them right now in the winter. I was finally able to pull out my winter coat that I got from my parents for Christmas 2 years ago from Shein.com. I am literally obsessed with it! Here is my outfit that I wore today to officially welcome Winter!

I hope you guys enjoyed my little life update and OOTD post! I will be having 3 weeks off for winter break so if you guys want to see any posts let me know and I will be happy to do them! Thank you for always being there for me daisies! ❤

Everything I am wearing was thrifted besides the fedora hat which I got at Target and the bomber jacket which I got at Marshalls when I was visiting San Diego 2 weeks ago. Make sure to check out my post on best places to eat in San Diego and my favorite beaches there!

Happy Friday Daises <3

Happy Friday Daises <3

I can not believe it’s the last day of September! And it’s October tomorrow! I know the first day of fall was last week but for me it feels like real fall when October comes and 2016 is flying by so fast! It will be 2017 in NO TIME! Anyway, not only do I love fall but I love Fridays! Especially this quarter because I have no class or work on Fridays. So every week for me is a 3 day weekend and I LOVE it! I woke up this morning with this view outside my window,,, it just screamed fall with all those gorgeous colors!

Today I used my day off to catch up in my classes with some homework and took a test (in my pajamas, in bed, and with coffee!!!). I also had some time to catch up on my readings! I have so much books that I thrift all the time, but the hard thing is finding time to read them all! I am thinking of doing a thrifted books haul soon! So  look out for that! ❤

I also took advantage and planned out my next week in my new planner. Which I am obsessed with! I love staying organized and using my planner especially in those times when there is so much homework and tests always coming up.

I am not bold enough (yet) to wear the beautiful dark lip colors in the fall! I am hoping soon enough I will be? Maybe it’s cause I am so light skinned that it looks way too dark? I don’t know, but here are my favorite nude lip colors that I will still wear into fall!

Last thing I have planned for today is go grocery shopping and get some food into the house! You would think no one lived in our place with how empty our refrigerator is! I am thinking of making ricotta stuffed pasta shells for dinner tonight! I am so excited! I can’t remember the last time I actually made dinner instead of going out.

I hope you daises had a lovely Friday and enter October with a smile on your face and peace on your heart ❤ Thank you for reading ❤
