Hey bumblebee, while exploring the internet I found the cutest coffee-related idea thanks to Chloe May’s Blog. As I often have little happy bombs I like dropping on my readers, (and a cup of coffee in my hand) sometimes it doesn’t always flow with my typical content. I’m hoping to update this series monthly to keep my friends and followers up to date on the happenings in life. Today I’d like to have a chat with you over some coffee on some exciting things going on right now:
If we were having coffee, I’d gush over how excited I am to have FINALLY purchased my blog’s domain.
After blogging for around 5-6 years, this is the first time I’ve decided to invest in my talent and my word and I’m beyond excited! With this domain comes great responsibility and I’m ecstatic to see what I’ll create in 2020. While I hope to continue to grow my brand, I also plan on starting a few side projects in the new year that I’ve put on the back burner for quite some time.
If we were having coffee, I’d chat with you about what my headphones have had on replay lately.
I’ll admit I’ve recently become a complete fangirl of my friend’s band, Freak the Mighty. Featured for the second time on BriCuzISaidSo, you can check them out on This Month’s Tunes: December 2019 list.
I’ve also been getting lost in Native American flute music while walking to work lately. Talk about music that takes you to another place, I’ve enjoyed some meditative moments to these heart touching tunes. I also recently found out that meditative walking is a thing, and that’s also been quite an experience.
If we were having coffee, I’d ask how your 2019 was and tell you my favorite part of the entire year was waking up next to my dog every day.
After moving into my brother’s house together, not only have Milo and I become closer but I also feel much closer to my family. This past year they’ve helped me drop my bad habits and motivated me while challenging myself to form new ones. 2019 taught me to be grateful not only for the love of my family but the love my dog has for me as well. While it may sound so insignificant to someone without a pet, Milo taught me so much about love this past year. I learned time is a valuable thing and a man-made construct at the same time.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you a little about the art I’ve been making lately.
I’d chat about the sketchbooks I just picked up for a steal at Michael’s (buy one get one free, what?!) and maybe show you some pieces I’ve been working on. I’d ask if you’ve seen my portfolio recently and what you think of it.
This year I kept a journal full of ideas and doodles that are now being brought to life. I couldn’t be more excited to finally share what’s been stuck in my head.
If we were having coffee, I’d share with you my digital favorites from 2019:
- 2019 Lessons & Blessings: Bricuzisadiso
- Vox Box 2 Review: Lancome: YouTube
- Flower Power & all the art I found the courage to share this year: Twitter/Bricuzisaidso
- Planning Your First Solo Trip by Budding Regardless, the inspiration for my first solo trip ever to Pittsburgh
- Discovering Jera Bean on Instagram, she’s been such an inspiration on both my content and work ethic.
- The College Content Queens Facebook Group has helped me share my work with so many different types of people and discover content from all over the world with bloggers that have similar goals to my own. While I was more active at the beginning of the year in the group, I’ve found some life long friends in this gang of girls.
If we were having coffee, I’d express my gratitude for all the people that have read and supported my blog this year.
Reaching 1k views in 2019 was the reassurance I’ve been asking the universe for since 2015. I’m so grateful to have made it to this point as well as having the opportunity to share my artistic views with the world. Here’s to another amazing year of content, laughs, art, and support!
Cheers to coffee and conversation,
