Coffee Diaries

So we’re on number two of our coffee diaries. This is a series I’m totally enjoying. I headed over to the Northern Quarter yesterday to try out some new coffee shops. I ended up in a quaint little French restaurant which happened to have outdoor sitting, one of my main attractions to a coffee spot. I ordered a latte and made myself very comfortable outside. The weather was sunny but also accompanied with some slightly cool breeze. I threw on one of my latest wardrobe additions which happens to be this cool navy blue knitwear from Next. I love the details a on the back. The silky ribbons give it a much more interesting look for otherwise what would have just been a jumper. Paired with my classic mom jeans for that extra comfort and gold trainers, I was in the zone to come up with some very creative ideas.

This coffee session inspired me to create one of my artsy Instagram stories. I did a behind the scenes type video. Where I showed off my ukulele which I don’t know how to play by the way, but thankfully I can at least sing. I shared my work space which is where all the magic tends to happen. My ring station made the cut. More of this outfit was also shown and the inspiration behind my classic poses which happens to be music. I swing and sway to the sound of sweet melodies in my head until we get the shot. Thanks to my new Kate Spade New York planner which I scored at my last blogger event in London, I am staying on top of my work and I couldn’t be more organised. Be sure to catch up on this story on my Instagram. Until next time, enjoy the coffee.***If you want to edit like me, you can! Grab a copy of my eBook here.***

Coffee diaries is a weekly  series that will be published on my blog just like my black and white series. Like every other blogger I know, spending time in a coffee shop seems to be a part of the blogger lifestyle. Since taking my blog full time, I and my blogger friends have been hanging out in cool coffee spots to create some content. Although, with this shoot, it was more just stopping for a nice coffee on what turned out to be a beautiful sunny day. Given the weather, something light as an outfit seemed very appropriate. Denim being one of my favourite go to pieces, I decided to go with the double denim look. Wearing my latest addition to my collection, the Nicole dress by Cosmic Fox and pairing it with an older piece, the light denim top which was the perfect shield from the slightly cool breeze. The gold trainers gave my outfit a little attitude.

I stopped by a nice Greek restaurant located in Manchester city centre. The classic white and blue decor drew me in which was very reminiscent of my recent trip to Mykonos, Greece. The menu was packed with various coffee options. The one that caught my eyes was the frappé; iced coffee with ice cream. I couldn’t resist especially since the sun was out and somewhat flirting with me. Taking advantage of the outdoor sitting, I sat in the sunshine and enjoyed my frappé.  Something about chilling in a coffee shop inspires ideas which is why it’s become a part of my routine. It was actually there I decided to start this coffee diaries series on the blog. I look forward to exploring more coffee spots and sharing the ideas that come out of my visits.
