French and Swiss Prelude

Ciao tutti!

After nearly 6 weeks in Italy, I’m preparing to leave this beautiful place, and see some more beautiful places!

I have a scheduled trip to Paris, France and Zurich, Switzerland. Thanks to friends, superb deals, and seizing opportunities, I am thrilled to be able to explore, hunt, search, and discover more places to enjoy and share with you.

I can state with certainty and pride that I am going global.

Be on the lookout for great pictures on Instagram, and *fingers crossed* great discoveries in each of these places!

I don’t know about anyone else, but I go through phases in my cravings and daily tastes, especially when it comes to coffee. So this list is not exhaustive, it’s just the first list ๐Ÿ˜‰

In no particular order, some of my favorite K-cups are:

  • Starbucks Holiday blend
  • Starbucks Christmas Blend
  • Newman’s Own Organic Special Blend Medium Roast Coffee Extra Bold
  • Green Mountain Coffee Dark Magic
  • Gloria Jean’s Hazelnut Coffee
  • Kauai Coffee Na’Pali Coast Dark Roast

November 29, 2018: Quote of the Day

“I know many people have said it before, but there is nothing a cup of coffee and a new pair of shoes can’t fix!”

–Marissa Jaret Winokur


I feel like this is the most perfect quote for me, in Italy–a coffee and fashion powerhouse. Yes, coffee and shoes are definitely the answer! ๐Ÿ˜€

What is coffee?

My sixth attempt answering “What is coffee?”

Coffee is . . .

  • mandatory
  • reassuring
  • peace
  • soothing
  • essential

*all responses–me, and a whole lot of other people I imagine
