Morning latte, best time of the day?

I know there’s gotta be more people out there then me who just loooooves their morning coffee! Today it tasted extra special good because I drank it in one of my new mugs. I bought these yesterday after an instant fall-in-love-moment at the store! It has all of my favourite elements; patterns, lots of colour and cute writings. “Funday Monday to Sunday” is my favourite and it’s gonna be my new life mantra!

Cosy Friday afternoon latte n scones

Right now I am having a latte and scones at a cafe. Cosy. But not how I had my afternoon planned! LOL I was heading into town to stop by my nail place and get my nails refilled. Quickly. In and out. Well that’s how it’s normally goes at least… Now they were busy for another two hours and voila, here I am trying to pass time. I stopped by a shop or two and it always ends badly… So next to me is a bag with a scarf and bracelet… Real bargains though! Half of the sale price! But still… So I thought I better sit myself down before I can do anymore damage… 😉 Unfortunately this delay in my schedule also means I am missing out in helping my fiancé rehearse a salsa routine with another couple for a show… Sorry mi Amor! (he doesn’t read my blog unfortunately but I’ll just show him this later and try hard to be the bestest wife-to-be in the hole wide world…)

I’m slightly obsessed with caramel wafers…

I think you realised by now that I do love my coffee. A lot. The days that I am in the boutique, like today, I treat myself with breakfast from the Espresso House near the boutique. I’ve been at my large latte for about an hour now… Still a little warm and still gooood! So my little obsession… THE caramel wafer! Dear lord! Is it baked with some highly addictive drug?!?! I loves it more then is ok I think! LOL And combined with a latte it’s even better, if possible! After starting the day with this type of breakfast I’m ready for anything! Bring on annoying customers (which we actually have surprisingly few of here)! Bring on the war with allergies (forgot medicine at home..)! Bring on tonight’s danceclasses! 🙂

My sweet morning!

Today I had my first morning off in quite a while. Was sooooo good to sleep in! Especially since my cold is still lingering unfortunately. My fiancé has also caught it and is bed bound since yesterday… 😦 So at 2 pm I am still in my robe, got a cute little cuddly cat in my lap, a nice cup of coffee (which is already finished and I wish it wasn’t lol) and catches up on the blog. I know I have been neglecting it a bit lately…sorry… At least I got the product list up from yesterday now! Hooray!

It’s really a nice day outside here today, the sun is shining! All though it is still very cold outside so I’m not really longing to go out. In a few hours I’m off to work, got contemporary classes all night this eve. 🙂 I got some hard work cut out for my students today but I know they’re up for it! 😉 Yesterday I was subbing a class for a coworker as well as having my own, sometimes it is so nice to just go in one class and work. I really enjoyed it and I think the students had a good time too! I’m hoping to see them in my High Heels class or Latin Jazz on Monday. They seemed so inspired-nice!

Hope you all are having great days too!

So today I hit rock bottom…

…when I had instant coffee for breakfast… If you read my blog for a while, or know me personally, you know I LOVE coffee. It is my only (?) load. Yesterday I fear my coffeemaker died. R.I.P. 😦 It got ill before christmas so we had a sparepart for christmaspresent from my parents, hooray. However it rejected it and now it died. So I have to get us a new coffeemachine. And boy is that a jungle! I just read an article on what´s important when buying a new coffeemachine; heating, amount of coffee, time, the setting of the coffee-grinder where you buy the coffee, preassure, temprature and so on and on and on… Jeesh! All I want is a coffeemachine that makes me coffee, espresso, latte and cappucino easily, that is low maintenance and preferably looks good. So, anyone got any tips?
