“Good morning, what can I get you today?” he smiled at their first customer that morning. the customer rattled off their order while he punched in the numbers and got to work brewing the coffee.

the rich and cozy smell filled the air inside the cute little coffee shop as sunlight and people streamed in.

“Don’t forget to add the cream before you mix,” he told a newer worker kindly. she nodded gratefully, and he returned to his post at the cash register, busily working on some supply forms. a pair of heels clicking up the line announced the arrival of another customer. he looked up, immediately pasting a smile on his face – and froze.

she was standing before him, in real life, with color in her cheeks and sparkles in her sea green eyes. the days when he had run his fingers through her auburn hair suddenly seemed like yesterday instead of years ago.

“Um…uh…what can I…uh get you this morning?” he stuttered.

she smiled, and he felt his knees go weak. “I’ll have a large mocha cappuccino with extra whipped cream, please,” she requested in her soft voice. he swallowed, remembering the nights when that smooth voice in his ear was all he’d ever wanted.

with trembling fingers, he punched in the digits and looked up. “That’ll be $4.57, but don’t worry, it’s on me.”

she raised an eyebrow, giving him a grateful smile. “Oh thank you….” she glanced at his name tag. “Marcus.” she frowned, a confused expression flitting across her face. “Do I know you?”

his heart jumped into his throat. he swallowed several times, willing the painful ache in his chest to disappear. a few seconds hung in the air, waiting. he exhaled.

“No,” he smiled sadly. “No, you don’t.”

Christmas DIY #1

GUYS. I literally could not be more excited right now. 9 days left till Christmas strikes! *screaming, running around the room* Today I have a very special Christmas DIY for you! It is a Whipped Peppermint Sugar Scrub!Peppermint-Sugar-Scrub-cover

The author of The Idea Room, Amy, has kindly permitted me to use her pictures and ideas! btw, her pictures are absolutely stunning, as you can see! It looks like it’s edible; it’s so fluffy and pink and amazing and.. okay, enough of me talking. Let’s get into the DIY!

This is what you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil ( make sure it’s solid! you don’t want it in a liquid form, but not in a rock hard form either)
  • 1/4 cup of sugar (sugar = my face starts smiling like crazy)
  • 1/4 cup of pink sugar ( to do this, mix 1/4 cup of sugar and a drop of red food coloring)
  • 5-6 drops of peppermint essential oil. Obviously you know why you need this.

Step 1. Make the 1/4 cup of pink sugar! Mix it with your fingers. Set it aside.

Step 2. In a medium bowl, combine the white sugar and the solid coconut oil with a hand mixer or a stand mixer. Beat it until it turns into a smooth paste.

Step 3. Continue to beat it until it turns into a fluffy and light mixture.

Step 4. Carefully fold in the pink sugar mix. This will give your scrub a beautiful pastel pink color! Which is like my dream come true…

Dressy Fall

Hello lovely readers! Can you believe it’s November already? Fall has only one more month to display its glory! And I don’t mean just in autumn colors:)
Starbucks is coming out with some delicious sounding flavors {Chestnut Praline, Salted Caramel Mocha, Toasted Graham?! Yes please!}, and burgundy beanies, cream-colored cable sweaters, and long boots are seen pretty much everywhere. I’ve also fallen in love ;) with poring over pictures of comfort food on Instagram…
That being said, I think fall is the most fashionable season; even the trees get all posh and dressy!

Here are some photos of our own maple trees that have been patiently waiting on my bucket list!
