  My 4 favorite coffee shops & my new HP Pavilion x360

This post has been written as a #bendtherules moment created in partnership with @HP

Hello & happy Friday friends. Lots of fun “Hearts Day” plans? I’m going to do a bit of “gal-entines” celebrating, a romantic dinner with some of my favorite Cleveland peeps and then  a bit of family fun time at the Art Museum on Sunday…this weekend is going to be lovely.

On a typical weekend we like to go for coffee at one of the many coffee shops in our city. From Lakewood, to Ohio City to Tremont and back to Rocky River, we will go wherever the java is brewing. Besides our weekend coffee adventures I also do a lot of work and blogging in said coffee shops around town. My typical order? A medium skim latte (sometime I add a touch of sugar free vanilla!) What’s your coffee of choice?

Today I’m going to share with you my top 4 coffee shops (& bakeries) in and around the 216 starting with one of our go-to’s…Blackbird Bakery.

Blackbird is such a treat. Their bakery creations along with their coffee drinks are truly artisanal in all definitions of the word. I often make client meetings there when my sweet tooth kicks in, their raspberry jammers are the perfect cure.

Recently I had a few thank you notes to write and I wanted to spend a bit of time exploring my new  HP Pavilion x360 so I made time to get up a bit early and head on over to Blackbird before work. This new HP Pavilion x360 is not your expected personal computer. It’s designed with a detachable keyboard giving me four awesome “modes” to work, blog and play in. From your traditional laptop to tablet to tent and stand I’m really enjoying exploring all the possibilities…now back to “Blackbird.”

Hey friends, how are you? It’s been a few days since I’ve checked in and lots has happened. I mean, the BROWNS WIN! The 74 degree WEATHER! Halloween fun! This time of year in the CLE is filled with so much to do and see it’s so hard for me to stay focused and sit still long enough to post. How about you, wouldn’t you rather be out and about in this beautiful fall rather than behind the keyboard? Yep, me too!

However with all that said, I had some very fun experiences over the last few days and I gotta share…

Have you been to the new Phoenix Coffee in Ohio City? I tell you what, it’s not only an ADORABLE space, the staff might be the most FRIENDLY group of barrista’s I’ve ever experienced. The almond milk latte was delicious and I gotta say, there is something relaxing about being tucked away in the busy neighborhood. This new coffee spot it’s the perfect place to meet a friend, have a meeting or even get some solid writing done.

I hope you have lots of fun Halloween plans this week. I hear it’s going to be a cold one so plan to wear your layers and pour yourself a big mug of hot cider with a splash of something wicked.

Happy new coffee spot! Happy tricks and treats to you!
