beauty & believing

for here, please!

what better way to spend a leisurely morning than a cozy date at a coffee shop? perfect weather has us hopping around to our favorite coffee shops lately, meeting friends, acquaintances and even sneaking away for an hour of me-time. there’s something liberating about ditching the typical to-go order, and truly enjoying the whole experience.

here are our 5 tips for the perfect coffee date:

  1. leave the technology at home. or, at least in your purse. focus on the company around you, and be present in the moment. observe and actively listen.
  2. stay awhile. if you’re meeting a friend, sip slowly and stay awhile. adopt a leisurely attitude, giving your mind and body a break.
  3. don’t order your usual. try something new and different, so it feels like a treat. don’t worry about the calories, indulge a little. enjoy it!
  4. engage in a conversation. lately, it seems we type more than we speak. challenge yourself with a heated debate. vibe off the unexpectedness of face-to-face conversation.
  5. be inspired. soak in the ambiance – the mix of people, the hum of the espresso machine, the click of keyboards – and appreciate the creativity all around.

here’s to more foam smiles! enjoy your next coffee date, friends.
