Get Traveling. But First coffee…


For me, Autumn is all about traveling! Three years ago James and I took our first trip to Africa, last year we were in Australia and now we’re on a whole European tour. While in Africa, specifically Uganda we could not get a decent cup of coffee to save our lives (and I’m not snobby about much but lacking a good cup of java in the AM wrecks me). Once we moved on to Zanzibar, specifically to the Italian region we were saved by Lavazza. They had their coffee everywhere and it made our lives. Shortly after coming back from that trip I became a Lavazza ambassador (my enthusiasm for the brand did not go un-noticed by them over social media).lavazza_london_mayfair

Since then James and I try to always spot their logo on our travels and obviously have to buy a cup every time we do. Sydney was my favorite spotting at the Taronga Zoo — good coffee and koalas — it doesn’t get any better then that.

Over the weekend, James and I headed to Newport, RI where we toured the mansions and sailed the days away. Minus the overly packed, non-stop itinerary (and one you better believe will involve heavy amounts of Lavazza to stay caffeinated), it was paradise! I’ll be posting pictures soon and my to do guide.

Cozying up to Fall with Lavazza Coffee


While it’s been a complete delight basking in warm weather this past month in Australia, there’s something super strange about hearing Christmas music while being in 80 degree weather. And I love the fall season, so this is my first real day back in NYC enjoying it.

Ice Cream + Coffee


Three things I’m a fan of: 1) Lavazza coffee, 2) National Ice Cream month and 3) No Makeup Mondays. Today, I’m celebrating all three. When James and I first started dating, I’ll never forget the time we made coffee and realized we didn’t have any milk, and he came up with the genius idea to add vanilla ice cream as a substitute.
