A cup of jo

I don't drink coffee daily, but once in a while the craving does arise and I find myself in the kitchen spinning open the cap to the coffee jar and grinding a few coffee seeds to bits. There's something refreshing in the mixture when a bit of cream and sugar is mixed in. Oh, and then pair it with a muffin or bit of cake, and I'm swimming in happiness for the next hour.

I am not ignorant to the fact that some people think coffee tastes like dirt or something of that sort; so tell me, a cup of jo or no?

Also, for the past few weeks I have been wanting to do a vlog for you all, but I didn't know what to talk about (it can be so awkward talking into a camera. especially for me. i flounder badly). So I got inspired by Gracie's idea to do a video answering questions you blogger friends might ask me. Some of the questions she's getting are really interesting, so I'm excited.

Ask away!


  1. cup of jo: yes!
    questions for vlog:
    what were your first days of blogging like for you? what were the main things you encountered during those early days?
    what blog-design website/system do you use? (picnik? gimp? befunky?)


  2. yes, love coffee!

    What is your favorite fashion accessory?
    What is your least favorite subject?
    Chocolate or Vanilla?
    What is your current obsession?
    What was your favorite song when you were little?
    What is the most amazing thing that ever happened to you?
    What is your favorite color? (original, yes, I know!)

  5. I'm not really a fan of coffee...unless it's the french vanilla latte from Walgreens :)

  6. I recently started liking coffee... it's like it tastes so nasty that I like it. I actually like it with just a bit of stevia and that's all. Which surprised me, cause I knew I was gonna be one of those people who put more sugar and cream in their cup than coffee. ;)

  17. And oh! Because of the photography nerd in me, I have one more question: If you purchased another camera lens, which one would it be?

  18. personally, I like a bit of coffee with my cream and sugar. ;)
    questions, yippee! I've been wanting to do a vlog too but can't think of something to do it on, buuut this is a fantastic idea.

  21. Your pictures are insanely beautiful. How did you learn and develop an interest for photography?

  22. I grew up sipping the last bit of coffee every morning from my parents cups, and my nana would always let me have a little in a tea cup when we went to their house, which made me feel like I was on top of the world... Now that I'm older, I have my own cup each morning with my parents. It's so nostalgic and beautiful.

  23. My family doesn't drink coffee, so I've only had a few sips of it. I must say, it is one of my favorite smells. It makes it feel like morning.

  24. coffee tastes kinda gross to me but i LOVE the smell and it always looks so appealing :) ps vlogs are fun. i'm starting to do them at my other travel blog (www.travelingtriplets.com) next week. go for it!
