Thank you for joining me on “My Latte Break.” This coffee-inspired series allows you the opportunity to get to know me, the lady behind Espresso Ever After, on a more personal level. And I can always use a good excuse to sit down and drink a latte. 🙂 So why don’t you grab one as well and enjoy the read!
MY IDEA OF A PERFECT VACATION?
Alaskan cruise. My husband and I love cruising and would love to plan something special for our 10 year wedding anniversary. You can’t go wrong with an Alaskan Cruise. I adore chilly weather, beautiful mountains, and water scenery… So an Alaska cruise just seems to be a perfect fit! I also love how when you cruise you have food, drink and fun all at your fingertips! #vacationgoals
SANDALS OR RUNNING SHOES?
I am all about comfort. I love bopping around town in my running shoes, especially because they match my usual mommy look of leggings and a messy topknot, and you can’t beat the feel! If you can’t tell from the photos I am also all about funky colors! Brooks Adrenaline GTS is my go-to for comfort!
FAVORITE CARTOON MOVIE?
Let’s face it parents, we watch more cartoon movies with our kiddos than we would like to admit. And since both of my girls are under the age of 4 years old, I still get to pick which ones they watch. AND since I usually have to watch the movies with them, I have fallen in love with Cars 1 & 2 and Despicable Me 1 & 2 … You can’t go wrong with these two! 🙂 If you are a new parent, these are enjoyable movies that won’t leave you snoozin!
MY FAVORITE BAG?
This one is a no brainer… The Lucky Lotus Shop – Iced Iced Coffee Tote Bag! If you are looking for the perfect bag for toting around all of your goodies… this is it! It is the perfect size to hold everything I need, and you know me… I’m a sucker for coffee-themed anything! I get stopped wherever I go because everyone loves the adorable coffee design. It is a 12oz tote made in 100% canvas and has a roomy square bottom that is reinforced. And great news, this iced coffee print also comes in a women’s tee!

For me, a little nail polish goes a long way. I love having my nails and toes painted, either done at a nail salon or done by me during nap-time. It is a little colorful perk that always helps me feel girly and put together. (Nail polish details : OPI Blush Hour)
MOTORCYCLE OR BOAT?
HAIR PRODUCT I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT?
My Bed Head Hard Head Hairspray is my go-to hair product. I can happily sacrifice in the shampoo and conditioner I use, but when it comes to hairspray there is nothing else that I love as much. I will check my bag when I fly just so that I can bring my giant can with me; now that is dedication. I have been using it since high school and still haven’t found anything better.
STRANDED ON A DESERTED ISLAND… PICK ONE ITEM YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT?
I should say sunblock because I burn so easily, but where is the fun in that… so I would have to say music, specifically Pandora. I have music on around me just about every second of the day, and I switch stations constantly. I have a station for just about every mood, so if I was alone on an island, I would want to have good music to keep me company! And on a positive note, if I was stranded on an deserted island I wouldn’t have to worry about anyone seeing my crazy dance moves! (Here are a few of my favorite Pandora stations: James Morrison, Justin Timberlake, Luke Bryan, Hillsong United.)
MORNING OR AFTERNOON/EVENING WORKOUTS?
Unfortunately I am not a morning person, so the idea of a morning workout is really hard for me to fathom, so I am definitely an afternoon and evening worker-outer! I usually try to do my workouts during nap-time, but let’s face it sometimes I just need to recover from my day during that time. I would say majority of my workouts happen around 6pm and I finish them off with a protein shake dinner. Great combination!
NETFLIX OR HULU?
This is a tough one!!! I like both of these options for different reasons, BUT if I have to choose I would pick Netflix. I love their options and there is nothing better than date-night-in binge watching our favorite shows! I am currently binging out on Gilmore Girls, and I can’t believe I didn’t watch it back in the day. (I am always looking for a new great show to get hooked on… leave me a comment with your favorites!)
FAVORITE IPHONE PHOTO EDITING APP?
I have fallen in love with Little Nugget App. It is a milestone and photo editing app that literally has it all! You can free-write text and change the fonts and colors. It has picture editing tools and beyond adorable art and text options. It is easy to use, which is what I need, and it is so fresh and fun! Come to think of it… I like it so much, stay tuned for a full blog post coming soon!
