5 Must-Visit Coffee Shops In The Tampa Bay Area

For the coffee lovers and explorers in Tampa Bay.

Whether I'm looking to get some serious work done or I'm just looking for a cute place to lounge with friends, coffee shops are always my go-to. Not only are these wonderful shops pleasing to the eye, but you also leave exuding the delicious smell of coffee, which is always a plus. So if you're looking for an aesthetically-pleasing place to study or some new coffee to try, take a look at five of my favorite coffee shops in the Tampa Bay area.

1. Felicitous Coffee & Tea House

If you're looking for an adorable, homey coffee shop then this is the place for you. Their menu is one of a kind, consisting of your typical lattes, coffees, cappuccinos, and teas, but also offering stand-out items like their "What the Fog?" specialty tea or their "All you need is latte" specialty latte drink that you can't find anywhere else. With artwork on the walls from local artists and plenty of delicious bakery items to choose from, Felicitous is truly one of a kind.

2. Buttermilk Provisions

Buttermilk Provisions has recently stolen my heart and has quickly become one of my newest obsessions. When you walk into Buttermilk, the ambiance is one of peace and the entire coffeeshop, from the walls to the bathroom, is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. With delicious sweet treats being added to their menu every day, like chocolate zucchini bread and homemade Nutella pop tarts, you won't regret making a stop at Buttermilk Provisions.

3. Foundation Coffee Co.

Foundation Coffee Co. is the modern, industrial coffee shop you need in your life. With delicious cappuccinos, scrumptious baked goods, and healthy options to keep you satisfied, it's the perfect place to sit down and be productive. It perfectly embodies the spirit of hard work, while also radiating an atmosphere of calm making it a must see for all. With two locations to choose from, Foundation Coffee Co. truly has it all.

4. Buddy Brew Coffee

Buddy Brew Coffee has some of the best coffee I've ever tasted. While there are many locations, the Hyde Park location is a stand-out. Not only because of their aesthetically pleasing shop but also because you can walk around Hyde Park, do some shopping and then enter into Buddy Brew for a delicious cup of coffee and a pleasing view to the eye. If you're looking for relaxation, topped with a treat for your taste buds, then Buddy Brew is the place to go.

5. Oxford Exchange

Along with being a delicious place to eat in Tampa Bay, Oxford Exchange is also a wonderful coffee shop to visit. Whether you want to bask in the beauty of the place, check out some cool books, or have a splendid latte or cappuccino, Oxford Exchange is the place to go.

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs


It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air


Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors


Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB


Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead


Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes


And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer


Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
