  Coffee love

Morning friends! Loving the sunshine today, how it makes the snow covered earth extra sparkly, so pretty.

As I was getting dressed this morning I realized that to me February means dusting off all of my red and pink apparel and accessories and giving them extra love during the happy heart month. I usually start by adding small splashes of the select colors (today red high heels) and end on the 14th with full on big hearts, red, pink and every sparkly accessory possible. I have no idea why I do this..but I guess it get’s me through these winter fashion blahs and is sorta a fun challenge unto itself. Do you do weird things like this?

Anyhow, I wanted to share this adorable little promo I picked up from Starbucks on Sunday morning. From 2/6 to 2/14 and after 2pm, Buy one Latte, Mocha or hot cocoa and get one free for your special someone. Sounds like it’s time to invite your bestie, your mom or your beau out for a warm winter drink…but make sure they are wearing something red and pink…all the cool kids are doing it. :)

  Gypsy @ Beck

Did you know that the scrumptious Gypsy Bean coffee shop & bakery now has a second location? They recently celebrated the opening of the second location adjacent to The Beck Center in Lakewood.


  Helvetica café : Lakewood

Morning CLE! Here’s to another chilly wet day in north east Ohio. Perfect excuse for that extra large latté, that big bowl of chili or something warm and scrumptious that you might not otherwise indulge in; heck going on day #6 of this weather…we all deserve a treat!

The other day during all this rain and nastiness I had the pleasure of checking out the new juice bar and cafe located on the east end of Lakewood – Helvetica. As a designer by day the swiss type reference intrigued myself and my colleagues enough to peel ourselves away from typical lunch “pinning” and venture out into the rain for a potential new lunch hot spot!

Helvetica exceeded our expectations all around. The menu of savory tacos, sweet crepes, tropical fruit juices and fair trade coffee was well priced and super satisfying. The service was friendly and really knowledgeable about all the unique fruity drinks on the menu (what’s a lulo fruit?) and last the space was a funky mix of design elements and coffee house cool including a small design reference library for all you typeface nerds like myself!

Check out their facebook page for daily specials. Stop by on your way downtown in the a.m. for coffee and a bit of bakery. Host your next committee meeting there for tacos. Support local!
