Mug: Morning Culture / Cocoa: My Cup of Cake

We are entering the season – I mean come on Arizona any day really, whenever you’re ready. Those mornings when you slip on fuzzy slippers, heat up some cocoa and curl up with a cozy blanket and a good book – or at the end of a day to unwind.

After the traveling, my body and mind got a wee bit tired, over stimulated a bit – (so much to see) but as always, I returned with a grateful, happy heart as I always do once I travel and see precious friends. The time we pour into our friendships, especially the ones far away is worth the investment. I have friends all over the country – it’s probably because I went to college out of state and my friends scattered everywhere. Careers also take us to different places and I kinda love that – while I miss doing daily life with them, it’s a great excuse to visit.


I came home to lots of boxes waiting for me, one included my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have box – my favorite monthly surprise. While I’m subscribed myself because I truly love this subscription box, I’ve also been selected to share the next three months of my Must Have box sent by POPSUGAR, with you and offer a $5 off code to your first Must Have Box should you decide to join in on the fun. Use code SHOP5 (code never expires). There were some fun items as they are in each box – beauty, food, home, fashion, the discoveries are endless.


I was looking forward to reading Lisa Sugar’s book, founder of POPSUGAR. I need a light, motivating read between my small group study and the writing I do myself. I love reading books by successful people, it’s so motivating and I’m encouraged by their stories. I especially love that the subtitle for her book is “Work Hard, Play Nice & Build Your Dream Life.” Can we talk about “play nice”? The older I get the more I appreciate kind people – it’s possible to work hard, you’ll come across people in the same business (our jobs aren’t original) but it’s so important to support one another and by doing so, we keep a healthy heart.

The Rise & Shine mug is such an Insta mug isn’t it? I love the personality of mugs! Also love the cocoa, it’s real chocolate with no artificial flavors and no GMOs or gluten! You also have to check out their cake pouch, it’s something I want to load up on and send to friends far away for birthdays – you make a personal cake in a 12-14 oz cup in the microwave in under 3 minutes! I discovered them from a previous POPSUGAR Must Have box.

I have a lot of content coming to the blog I’m really excited to share so I hope you check in daily – including a studio reveal I’m working on and it’s taken a lot of hours in my day to get situated. It’s almost there and the days this week have been long making trips to every store, assembling, planning, improvising, I can’t wait to show you.

Anyway, that’s what’s on my agenda lately – rising a bit early, getting projects done, indulging some cocoa (usually twice a day) and reading a happy, motivating read. Hope you find some time to set aide for rest – whether that’s sleeping in or reading a good book!

POPSUGAR sent me this Must Have Box to share, but I am also a subscriber and truly love the box and think you will too! 

Trying to decide what to write to make myself sound interesting.
