Cool New Coffee Shop

Starbucks will always be my first choice when it comes to getting coffee, but sometimes I like to visit independent coffee houses. This one was in Fairfax, and was pretty nice. They were still finishing the construction, but the coffee was good. I liked that the coffee was made with a pour over, which is different. However, if the shop has more than one person every 3 minutes it would be way too slow. Overall, it was nice because the quality of the coffee and there were tables to get some work done.

Costa Rica


 The Springs 

I loved every minute I spent in Costa Rica. Spa, adventure, hot springs = can't wait to go back someday. I HIGHLY recommend The Springs Resort and Spa and Finca Rosa Blanca.


1. Go in the "dry season"
2.  Still bring a rain jacket
3. Get a driver!
4. Go into town at least once where there are some great restaurants at lower prices.
5. Have Fun!!

Capital Teas Workshop by Living Social

Last week, I went to a workshop about the different types of teas. As someone who generally drinks a lot of coffee, I wanted to find out more about this other caffeinated beverage. I learned that the US drinks far more iced tea then any other type of tea. We sampled 6 types of tea and the instructor described each in terms of taste and where it was generally served. The instructor was very knowledgeable and went over a lot of information in about 2 hours. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn more about the subject. 

I also walked around DC.  Here are a few photos:

The Season of Sweaters

Fall: It's the time of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, trees changing colors and football starting.  When I want something comfy and perfect for a weekend out I will reach for a cozy sweater.  The best ones are colorful or have a fun print.  The sweaters pair well with boyfriend jeans and those new boots you just got on sale. 

Here are three of my favorite sweaters this fall.
