Between summer vacations and heading home to catch up on work it’s boom-boom back to back appointments! It’s the trade off for going on vacay right? My garden has been a little crazy from neglect but once the monsoons hit the weather dropped so I was up at 6 am two days in a row just hacking those weeds out of my beds! I was sharing my progress on Instagram and I had my Shamrock Farms Cold Brew Coffee & Milk in hand when a little bee thought it was a good idea to start his day off with a sip too, lol. I have yet to be stung so I sort of freaked on the video.
I love cold brew, it’s a change from my iced lattes. I have made cold brew several times but sometimes it’s easier to just grab one of these Shamrock Farms Cold Brew bottles which comes in three flavors, made of 100% Columbian coffee with Shamrock Farms Milk (local), especially when you are on the go. It has twice as much caffeine as coffee.
Saturdays are usually our shoot days where I can line up all of the products and campaigns I need to shoot for. I thought I’d talk a bit about what goes into those shoot days.
I had my girlfriend do my makeup and hair when we have big shoot days – it is one less thing I have to think about and don’t mind paying for. Then we have a list and we start from the top!
- List every product that needs to be shot with pose ideas
- Have outfits in mind that goes with every shot
- Get in the car and find a complimentary location (if I don’t already have one in mind)
This day was great because it was about five different things and we decided to go out, shoot, and come back to regroup without having to pack everything up like we usually do due to one location.
We took these photos between our five shoots and felt like it picked me up because I was getting so tired with the shoots and the heat. I wasn’t sure if we’d finish the list but why let cold brew go to waste, I shot with it and drank some more and I was like *zing* I am so ready to power through and finish this day! It is so smooth when you drink it and I felt like I woke up so fast and ready to answer emails, make decisions and go to the next thing on my list. Sometimes emails are just a whole bunch of questions that need to be answered and my mind doesn’t feel like it – but I must!
You already know how much I enjoy Shamrock Farms products (their cottage cheese is delicious – check out this protein pancake recipe that will blow your mind) and one of my best friends family owns a local dairy farm I always think I am probably drinking milk from their cows, perhaps a cow that I’ve met! Imagine that!
You have to try it, it’s so delicious and it’ll give you so much energy and make you more efficient, wahoo! You can find the new green top Shamrock Farms Cold Brew Coffee & Milk in the refrigerated dairy case at Walmart.
I still had some energy left that evening and edited through the night. I could work every minute of my life. I know there’s more to life than just work but when you love to work and love what you do, working makes me happy!
Made of 100% Colombian coffee with a touch of real cane sugar I also love that Shamrock Farms milk is free of any artificial growth hormones sourced from local farms (like my girlfriend’s local dairy farm!). I had one Monday morning and was so jazzed – I’ve been loving Mondays lately, a start to five new days to get things done. I love to work in case you couldn’t tell.
