Truth: I Buy Coffee Based on the Packaging Color

Say hello to my new ^friend.  Well, sorta new.  Coffee and I go waaaay back. 
But after the awful experience with a certain coffee that I could only say via heavy doses of hot cocoa, cinna-sugar, and milk... I went on the hunt for a budget-friendly bag of grounds that would actually taste good.  I ended up at my beloved Target, where a major coffee sale was going down in Aisle 9.  (Ok... I made that up.  Not really sure which aisle.  But I liked the sound of that.)  As the boyfriend feigned impatience at my coffee indecision (which he had also suffered while I picked out hair color five minutes earlier)... this pretty turquoise bag of Seattle's Best Level 4 called out to me.  I'll admit.  It was an impulse buy based totally on the color of packaging.  But here I am drinking and let me just say: AMAZING.  It's been a long time since I brewed a decent cup of coffee at my own place.  A spoonful of sugar.  A splash of vanilla soy milk.  And my Friday night has just been made.  :)

I promise there are more interesting posts to come besides a random coffee recommendation.  But I hate not to share a good thing!  Have a lovely weekend!

My Momma loves this coffee, too, she bought some while she was visiting me this December. It is pretty good! I can't really use it often, because I have a French press, and need a coarse grind, but once in a while can't really do any harm (I hope).

Please, share your coffee recommendations as often as you'd like! I love to hear them. :) I'll have to try this one out once my World Market Breakfast Blend coffee runs out (which isn't bad, btw).

Oh god, I like the packaging too! I buy new stuff that look nice, I care about the packaging. It's always nicer to eat/drink/try something that is also beautifully sold to us. Might try that coffee if I can find it here in Canada! :)


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
