I'm Honey!

As a woman who has lived through many passages and learned through my larger than life experiences (positive and negative), I’ve discovered how to take a big empowering bite out of life.

Oh My, Ponder This:

Beauty & Style

Coffee Lovers Gift Guide, Honey Good holding pretty mugToday is National Cappuccino Day. A day of celebration, if you ask me. With the holidays fast approaching, I thought what better than to share a coffee lover’s gift guide?

There’s nothing like holding a beautiful mug of steaming hot coffee. It’s an experience for all of the senses. The feel of the perfect mug, the smooth surface, and the perfect grip of the handle. Then there’s the rich aroma of the coffee. Our eyes take in the look of the smooth surface of steaming coffee or creamy foam. Then, of course, there’s the taste. Over time we grow in our taste for coffee and we will not settle for just anything. We want the best. We crave an experience. 

Coffee Making as a Ritual

Above all, the simple act of making an amazing cup of coffee is a ritual that should be enjoyed. It is not a chore, but a ceremony. Each rite performed perfectly and to a delicious end. The perfect cup requires the perfect tools, which is why I created this coffee lover’s gift guide.

Do you think of coffee-making as a necessary performance of drudgery? I invite you to reconsider and think of it instead as an experience. To begin with, this thought is better for your mindset. To know that you are starting your day carrying out a ritual of self-care. But also that the act itself is part of your waking up process. Give yourself the time deserved to welcome the new day with joy

As you are shopping for loved ones, consider their hobbies and habits. If you have coffee lovers on your list, why not pass on the idea of crafting the perfect cup as self-care? We could all use a mindset shift as life continues in Elsewhere. 

Additionally, it should be noted that experts warn that shoppers can expect to face shipping delays and many items will be out of stock. Be sure you complete your shopping early!

Here are some wonderful finds that I’ve come across for every budget:

    Hi Honey,
    I don’t have a coffee ritual, but my first steaming mug in the morning starts my day off right. I enjoy flavored coffee, so I buy pods in french vanilla, caramel creme, cinnabon, and other tasty flavors. I must use light cream, not milk, and just a dash of sweetner. Here’s to our morning coffee!
