Sunday Morning Coffee // No. 38

Sunday Morning Coffee / Sharing Blog LoveI honestly cannot believe it’s already November! The new year is less than two months away, and this year is almost ready for close and review.

I’ll be sharing my goals for the month on here tomorrow. You can read past goal setting posts here (and hopefully, you’ll get inspired to set your own!).

This week was a busy one, fueled by coffee for sure. I sometimes feel like my travel mug is permanently placed in my hand during the week! My Friday, I’d switched to tea (thank goodness). I’ve been on a Tazo kick for the past month –Earl Grey in the mornings, Refresh Mint at night. Up next, IΒ mustΒ try the new Chai Vanilla Caramel lattee, because it’s seriously all of my favorite things in one drink!

If you also mix/blend your caffeine fix at home, please share your favorite recipes! Any creamers or latte mixes I should try to start my mornings right?

What have you been up to this week?

Some links I’ve been loving

+ How do you define the true meaning of fulfillment?

+ It may do us all a bit of good to change the channel and focuses onΒ living well rather than creating a life that seems well lived.

+ I also have mixed views on group giveaways.

+ Does your blog or biz use cloud storage? Maybe you should, here’s why!

+ Start your next conversation off with this, the results may be interesting.

+ A beautiful message from Tori & Trina on investing in people who invest in you.

+ Amazing reminders for this weekend & beyond.

+ We all feel a bit insecure at times, and that’s okay.

In case you missed it…

+ How to create your brand with a designer + some awesome advice from my favorite designers and brand experts!

+ How to be productive when working from your desk.

+ A recipe for a well lived day.

Time to finish a hot mug of coffee, get a jump on chores (and work that carried over from a lazy day in bed yesterday). I hope you enjoy the links!

    I can’t believe that it’s already November! I can’t wait to see my high school friends at the end of the month for Thanksgiving break! (we’re all college freshmen) Anyways, even though Sunday morning is almost over, this motivates me to start my day out in town to get coffee (dining hall coffee just won’t cut it). It’ll be a great way to start my day off productively, as I’ll already be out and about! Anyways, I really enjoyed the post you linked about changing the channel πŸ™‚ -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      I’m excited to go home for Thanksgiving and just spend time with my dad and sisters (I’m a college senior)! Enjoy your coffee –dining hall coffee never did it for me, either πŸ™‚

    I love these round-ups of yours, Amber, so to be included absolutely blows my mind – thank you!! It was a dream come true to work with Trina, and to receive the response we have done has been wonderfully encouraging.

    I’ve many’a tab open now, ready to be poured over – it may be Sunday evening here, but hey, being offered new bits and bobs to read is ALWAYS appreciated!

    Ahh, a mug of coffee ( or tea! ) sounds quite good right now. It’s so chilly here, I’m bundled up on blankets and definitely could go for a warm cup of coffee. πŸ™‚

    Lovely round-up, Amber! Thank you so very much for including mine and Tori’s post! It means so much to me and we’re just blown away by the amazing feedback we’ve received. πŸ™‚ Thank you!

    Have a happy week, Amber!!

    Hmmm….for easy, delicious coffee, I love Trader Joe’s Pinon ground coffee. Its really smooth and not too bold, which are elements I look for in the perfect cup!

    For tea, I love Twinings Earl Grey. I sort of make a latte with it. I steep about 2-3 tea bags in a half mug of water for about 10 minutes, to make it really concentrated. Then I fill the rest of the mug with hot, whole milk and a tablespoon of honey. It is delicious and oh so creamy!

    I am so happy it is getting cooler here in Los Angeles, so I can enjoy a cup without sweating or having to turn on the air conditioning! (I am from the East Coast and I still haven’t adjusted to the lack of weather out here.)

    What do you take with your Earl Grey tea? I love Earl Grey flavored things (haha) but I don’t have a good “recipe” for the tea itself.
