Coffee (n): An attitude adjustment in a mug.

The Daily Life And Thoughts Of A Coffee Addict

Waking up to the smell of coffee each morning is what led me in falling in love with coffee. I started to drink coffee when I was in high school and it only started out as a morning habit, but then led into something that I cannot live without...literally. There are people who are coffee drinkers, people who enjoy coffee and then coffee addicts, like myself. If you're in my shoes, then you would understand the daily struggles and thoughts one has to go through due to this addiction.

1. The First Sip of Coffee.

That first sip of coffee in the morning, or when you're having a mid-day crash, is an indescribable feeling. Once you have that first sip, you already feel alive. After that one sip, you are ready to take on anything.

2. Not Getting The First Cup In The Morning.

Nothing is better than the first cup of coffee and if you do not get the first cup, the whole day is ruined. If you're up before me, you better make coffee and let me take my coffee before you do...thanks:)

3. Your Bank Account Is Filled With $2 Charges.

Your parents question you why your debit card statement shows a $2 charge at Dunkin' every day. Who carries cash now a days and you need you hand over your debit card with no shame.

4. Please Do Not Talk To Me Until I Had My Coffee.

Why don't people understand that you will bite their head off if you haven't had coffee yet? You allow people to start talking to you only when your halfway done with your coffee. Without coffee in the morning, you cannot focus, let alone have a conversation and be nice.

5. Having Friends Who Don't Drink Coffee.

You are shocked when some of your best friends do not like coffee or just simply don't drink it. What is going on in their heads? You insist that they need to taste it. Also, when your at their house, they don't have any coffee to offer you and you need to change that.

6. When You Don't Have Coffee Until Noon.

Either you were out and could not make coffee or the place you stayed over didn't have coffee, so when noon comes around, you sadly don't have any coffee in your system. This is the worst feeling and all you can think about is how good coffee tastes and how sad life is without it.

7. Caramel Iced Coffee Isn't Really "Real" Coffee.

You have this belief that if someone does not like regular brewed coffee, they aren't really a coffee addict. It's basically filled with this fake flavoring to cover up the real taste of coffee.

8. You Know Your Coffee Order By Heart.

Medium hot coffee with milk and sugar please. Sometimes you say that order when you are ordering food by mistake.

9. Everyone Knows Your Favorite Christmas Gift Is Coffee With A Mug.

You can get this present every year, and still be super excited about it. You can always use more coffee, and is there ever a limit to the amount of mugs you own?

10. You Are Very Possessive Over Your Mug.

You get really mad if someone in your family or a friend uses your mug. "This is my mug and nobody else can drink out of it!"

11. There Is No Such Thing As "Too Late" For Coffee.

No matter how many people tell you that you need to slow down and not drink coffee so late, you won't listen. Coffee never really affects you anymore at night because your body is so immune to it. Midnight coffee run...I think yes.

12. Getting the Shakes.

Everyone has reached that limit when they drank way too much coffee. This results in getting the shakes and becoming very jittery. I honestly don't mind the feeling because during that moment, I needed all the caffeine I can get.

13. Big Mug Please.

Please only give me a huge coffee mug, I will not accept little tea cups. Even soup bowls are okay, because the more the coffee the happier I will be:)

14. Coffee Makes You Feel Powerful.

After you wake up and have that big mug of coffee, you are ready to take on just about anything.

15. You Dream of Coffee and Its Taste.

After a long and stressful day, all you want to do is sit back and enjoy that cup of coffee. I mean, I actually daydream about drinking coffee when I am falling asleep during the day.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

Kamala Harris Is The Biggest Hypocrite Of The #MeToo Movement

A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris — and no one wants a hypocrite for a vice president.

Joe Biden just chose Kamala Harris to be his running mate against Donald Trump and Mike Pence in 2020. Now, for many reasons, this is hilarious as I think Biden just solidified his fate and gave the election to President Trump, but that's for another time.

Now, this is a story all about how, "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" is getting a reboot, and every '90s kid is currently screaming. (Yes, you heard me correctly.)

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.

With no sign of the pandemic going anywhere, brides and grooms who planned to be married in 2020 are forced to opt for plan B — if not plan C or D. While some are downsizing their in-person weddings to meet coronavirus guidelines and state restrictions, others are choosing to cancel theirs until further notice and some, well, they're embracing the virtual "I do."

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending a Zoom wedding for my friend and fellow editor and writer, Kristin Magaldi, and the short-but-sweet ceremony left me in happy tears (surprise surprise). In order to get the scoop on what exactly went into planning a virtual wedding, I asked Kristin to share her best tips so other couples know exactly how to have a Zoom wedding in case they're looking to lean into the video chat vows, too.

Luxury Fashion Buys Your Bank Account Couldn’t Justify Till This Year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

In case you needed another reason to get the Prada sunnies you've been eyeing all year.

Since I can remember first flipping through my older cousin's fashion magazines as an 8-year-old, I've always had several luxury items on my wish list of items I knew I'd never have, but loved to fantasize about.

As I grew into financial independence later in life, the list grew longer, but the ways in which I could toy with my grocery or travel budget for a month to make room for something I really wanted made the items on it more attainable. Even then, I will (virtually) visit an item online several times in the span of a year to test if I still like it months after eyeing it, and to see if by any chance it may have gone on sale.

Maybe it was the quarantine months that sent you on a quest to finally find a workout routine that works for you, or maybe it was the lack of routine in the world that inspired you to change your habits or -for some- keep them and make an effort to maintain your health. If gyms were not already evolving with the new needs of the 21st-century gymgoer, they are undoubtedly evolving now with the lifestyle mindset that Covid-19 has left many of us with — a desire for a plan for a positive change seeing that tomorrow is not guaranteed.

The experience that an individual gets out of going to the gym should feel worth their time, energy, and should meet their specific fitness journey goals. If you do not already have a reason to go to the gym, here are ten genius effective implementations that will inspire even the couch-iest potato.
