Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend clearly didn’t have the crazy coffee concoctions we have today (hello PSL and cotton candy frapp). Or work as long as we do each day.
Coffee has become such a pop culture phenomena. There’s mugs, T-shirts and pillows with the phrase “But First Coffee” on it. So I finally caved when I went to Brandy Melville in Newport Beach during the summer. I can pair it with my new black-and-white-plaid Brandy Melville shorts for casual mornings on the patio or tuck it in to my favorite pink midi skirt with heels.
And this school year the phrase couldn’t be more true. A full course load with grad classes, two jobs, blogging and freelancing on the side gives me little time to waste! But I wouldn’t have it any other way. When else will I have the energy or opportunities that I have access to now?
So when things get overwhelming, take a breath and pour yourself a cup of joe.
P.S. I got this Instagram mug from Teen Vogue Fashion U in March!
