She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: Coral Cafe

As you're reading this, I'm probably almost to Seattle and getting ready to unload my things in my new house!  So happy it's Wednesday again, as I get to share another one of my favorite bloggers with you.

Meet Drew of Coral Cafe! She's spunky, adorable, and quite chic. Drew has a serious eye for anything and everything design.  We also share our love for all things modern-vintage!  I hope I'll get to meet this sweet girl in real life one day (: Let's hear what she's lovin' and what she's not...

Hello lovely followers of Michaela! I was so excited when my sweet blogger friend asked me to participate in this series!! It's such a fun way to get to know bloggers a little more beyond the usual.

Loving is the easy part! So here goes:

She Loves Me:

Traveling: I absolutely adore traveling and visiting places I've never stepped foot on before!
It broadens your perspective on life and makes for a quite enjoyable journey.
If I could take a trip at least twice a month, my life would be exceptional. 
It doesn't necessarily have to be the most glamorous place, just somewhere
 I can breathe fresh air, take in different scenery and talk with someone 
that has a different take on life in an unfamiliar place.

Making Lists: I am an avid list taker. I love jotting down my to do's and checking off accomplished tasks. It's like a reward to get the list completely done!
(Checking them off on pretty paper is a nice perk!) 

Coconut Frappucino's: I LOVE Starbuck's Coconut Frappucino's!! They are extremely fresh, sweet and delicious!! The toasted coconut on top is such a pleasant surprise! If I'm honest, I can pretty much indulge in anything coconut! The taste, the scent...anything!

NYC in 2 Days:  I am traveling to see my best friend who recently moved to NYC. I'm leaving in 2 days and am ecstatic!! Blair and I have shared in traveling adventures around the US for almost 18 years! Now that she finally lives in her dream city, I can visit and enjoy the hustle and bustle of this spectacular place during the greatest of months! It gives me a chance to take in the wondrous sights and twinkling lights, as well as be inspired for design work I'm in the middle of. 
Plus, the art galleries are pretty amazing in NYC!

Gyros: I lived in Pittsburgh, PA a couple years ago and was introduced to the famous gyro! It is so mouth watering delicious! The tzatziki sauce that comes on it is pretty yummy too! (It's like a cucumber ranch, if you've never tried it before) In Pittsburgh they use lamb to make a gyro, but you can easily substitute it for chicken, which is just as delicious!

Zara: I was thrilled to hear that Zara finally opened up their online shop!! I've tried for some time to purchase from the site, but it was pretty much a tease!! The layout of the sight came across as an online shopping site, but for the longest time was just a place to "look" and not "touch" or "buy." Now it is finally available and I'm super excited! I fell in love with the store when I lived in Florida and now I can search through the lovely site with ease knowing that if I run across something I just have to have, I can head to the checkout button ;)

She Loves Me Not:

Far Away from Dana: I recently traveled to Oklahoma to move my sister and her husband. I love the fact that her husband has a great job there and they can be near his family. But selfishly, I want her back with me. We are extremely close and I love just laying around laughing and having heart-to-hearts with my sis! Good thing Christmas is right around the corner and she's coming back to visit me! 

Laundry: I detest laundry! Plain and simple. My laundry will overflow x10 until I finally cave and do the dirty chore! By no means can I afford to keep buying clothes because mine are all dirty, but it's sometimes the awful case when I'm too lazy to do laundry. Something about it is just so overwhelming to me. I can separate the clothes before they go through the wash pretty easily but can't stand touching the wet clothes when they're done. Ick!! And folding, I'm just too lazy to make it happen. I am a firm believer in paying someone to do it for me ;)  Pretty sad, I know. I don't have the funds to make this happen, either, but boy it would be great!

Allergies: I don't know anyone that welcomes them. I used to never have allergies until these last 2 years. Now I'm having a huge dose of them. 
Along with allergies, I HATE having to use those disgusting nose drops that 
drain down the back of my throat! But, hey, I could have it I'll suck it up and spray!

Thanks again for having me Michaela! and letting me rant and rave towards the end. ;)

Thanks, girl! 

Be sure to stop by Coral Cafe for lots of eye candy.  And if you're in the market for a new blog design, Drew has you covered (: She's amazing!
