Morning Coffee + Daily Rituals


I was addicted to coffee long before moving to Seattle. My true love for coffee started when I lived abroad in Florence. It became a daily ritual, starting each day by stopping at the same little Italian cafe and getting “un latte con soya.” This habit followed me back to the states, got me through a lot of early mornings in college and still jump starts each day.

Now that I run businesses of my own, keeping organized is an absolute must. Between the blog, my styling company, Every (my jewelry line) and Third & Loom, starting your day with a clear idea of what needs to happen that day, the next, the following week and within the month is imperative. Needless to say, I buy coffee in bulk at ShopRite.

Consistency is the key to success. Even though I work for myself, I still wake up at 7-ish every morning, make coffee and plan my day and content. I multitask and work all day on different things, photo shoots and different meetings, but always finish each night with a workout. Even though no two days are alike, keeping those bookends the same helps to keep me on track, and to be honest, sane.

Have you ever wondered how I keep everything organized and plan my blog content? Well, here it is: a jumbo calendar that I use PostIt notes to keep blog content straight, my daily planner that coordinates meetings (that comes with me everywhere) and back in my home office, I put more PostIt notes on my big Prada sign that hangs above my desk to keep track of Everly orders and shipments.IMG_0203 IMG_0209_1 IMG_0213 IMG_0220 IMG_0225 IMG_0228
