A lot of you guys have asked me where I like to blog.
No BS, my favorite way to blog is to go to a restaurant & sit by myself.
Usually it’s a coffee shop & I’ll order a espresso shot or lately, a cappuccino with cinnamon. But I also have this whole sushi restaurant routine: I wear sweats & tee and bring my computer to the sushi bar. While blogging I order my favorite veggie roll: avocado, carrots, jalapeños, a little spicy mayo, & ginger, a miso soup, and a hot green tea. Sometimes when I’m feeling wild, I’ll have a glass of pinto grigio. It’s this little hole in the wall sushi restaurant so it’s the perfect place to concentrate & get shit done.
Something about sitting by myself at restaurant, blogging, inspires me. Weird?
These shots were taken at the coffee shop underneath my house called Aristan Bento. Besides my hole in the wall sushi restaurant, it’s my other favorite place to blog. It has this big window so there’s LOTS of light & it perfect for people watching while I work.
Anyway just wanted to give you guys a peak in to where I love to blog when I’m not in my office. Sometimes getting outside of the everyday work space makes me feel more creative/inspired/peaceful.
For all the bloggers out there: where do you like to blog? Would love to hear!
Typically when I’m out blogging, I’ll bring a camera in case there’s anything interesting to shoot.
Since my regular camera is SO F-ING HEAVY, this white polaroid fits perfect in my oversized purse. Plus it’s lightweight, chic, & takes instant pics. Polaroids are so #TBT in the best way possible so it’s fun to use them to decorate around the home.
This is definitely one of my favorite giveaways ( EVER!! ) because it’s a real mixture of goodies.
( like, I might enter myself— I kid, I kid ).
So let’s get down to business.
The lovely winners ( there’s two!!) will each receive a big, pink pretty basket with some major swag.
I hand picked everything in the basket especially for you guys & definitely included some of my beauty/office/kitchen must-haves( I’m OBSESSED with Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker…probably not the best ingredients, but you can’t win ‘em all ).
