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.

And GUESS WHAT GUYS?! TSC & Urban Outfitters have teamed up to giveaway one of these adorable, white cameras. You can enter the giveaway by tagging a friend with #URGIFTED on my latest Instagram picture.

By the way, if you’re looking for a cutie, girly Christmas gift you have to check out this leather jacket ( SUCH A STEAL— it’s 30% off too ), these sunglasses, & the dress I’m wearing.

  1. You are absolutely gorgeous. This white dress is to die for, and I just love your bun!

    I am hosting a giveaway on my blog. You can win an Ivanka Trump bag worth 175$ check it out:



  2. Long ago I use to love blogging at home, but now I’m all about coffee shops! I feel like the smell of coffee and the sound of the expresso machine get the creative juice going.

  3. Love that camera! The electronic shops here sell a mini printer that will print pics from your phone onto the same little Polaroids. It’s on my Christmas wishlist~

    I miss eating alone and finding creative spaces outside the home. That’s my biggest grief about moving to a small town, the closest cafe is an hour train ride away.

  4. I’m with you on the coffee shops. I have never tried blogging at a restaurant, but it sounds like it would be a cool environment. Plus I’d be extra pumped to eat some good food while working haha. But I totally agree sometimes you have to get out of the house to feel inspired and be around people..even if you don’t necessarily talk to anyone, it helps!

  5. I love coffee shop blogging! It makes me feel so chic 🙂 plus it’s how I get my best blog inspiration. I find out all the latest trends by eaves dropping on coffee shop conversations. It’s literally how I found out that you can grind your own almond butter at whole foods. So yeah, totally support the coffee shop blogging movement!

  6. 1st – I put cinnamon in my skinny latte this weekend because of you, and it was DELISH!! Thanks.
    2nd – The suspense is killing me. When are you going to blog about the mushrrom powder you are obsessed with? I’m thinking of trying mushroom powders & I’m curious about your take/experience with them.

  7. I couldn’t agree more with your spots for blogging. There’s something so nice about having an amazing hot drink and sunlight that gets the words flowing for me too. Love reading your blog!

  8. Sushi and wine are my pre-blogging rituals as well. I don’t know what it is, but theres something about sushi that just gets my creative juices flowing!

    Happy blogging! xo

  9. You are seriously too gorgeous – that is one killah top knot lady 😉
    What a fab giveaway! Fingers crossed xoxo, D

  10. Such a cute dress! I love blogging from a coffee shop down the street from my apartment, but I somehow usually end up working from home.

    Happy Monday! | Carly

  11. This sounds a little weird but my co-blogger and i come up with ideas in the Sauna at the gym! We both lay down and talk it out while sweating it out! Loving you ideas and that adorable camera! Thanks for the constant inspiration for our blog launching in January! XX Meghan

  12. I always blog from home (unless I’m traveling) but since I don’t have a set office it varies between my dinner table and my couch!!
    I would actually love to get out and blog from a cafe, especially if it gets me out of the house. The whole thing that stops me is having to lug my laptop around!
