MORNING ROUTINE BREAKDOWN- CREATING A PEACEFUL MIND


I am a morning person. I think this habit was created from all the early morning swim practices in high school. Either way, I'm a morning person and the rest of my day relies heavily on the tone I set for myself.

I received quite a few questions from my previous post on increasing productivity without killing creativity, so I thought I'd address them here.

I'm giving a detailed breakdown of my morning routine. These are precious hours when I feel like I get my best work done. I understand not everyone is a morning person, but I'm sharing what works for me.

STYLING COFFEE TABLE BOOKS + WHERE TO GET THEM


I am SO EXCITED for today's topic. My love for coffee table books stems from the hours my grandma spent with me in the library as a child. I love taking in the images and feeling instantly inspired. And the smell of a book, perfection.

Coffee table books are a great addition to add color and texture to your rooms. I find myself admiring a good book when I visit someone's home. They are not only resourceful and inspirational, but they are great conversation starters when the girls are over.

HOW TO INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY WITHOUT KILLING YOUR CREATIVITY


Sometimes I have a hard time focusing when I have a million ideas in my head at once. I think this is the curse of many creative-minded people. I will think about the other smaller tasks the whole time I'm working on something big and important. Because of this, I used to find myself jumping form one task to another and not working as efficiently as I could. If I did make myself batch work and do similar tasks in one sitting, I found my creativity would suffer later on when working on a different type of project.

I have tried a few things over the last year and a half and I'm going to share what has worked for me.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN AN APARTMENT AS A FIRST TIME RENTER


This post was born out of the relief I had after spending the first night in our new apartment. We finally have a place we are both comfortable in.

James and I have been renters since college. We have have seen the good, the bad and the ugly of the renting world.

I put together a list to help someone looking for an apartment or house to rent for the first time.

CEREAL MILK LATTE

Southfield, MI 48076, USA


Cereal milk at the end of a morning bowl is something that either grosses you out or sounds like the best part. I'm someone who is secretly going to 100% drink the milk on my way to the kitchen sink when no one's looking. (Not sorry.)

This is a delicious treat that a local coffee shop served up in OKC. Having just moved to Michigan, it was one of the things I missed most about Oklahoma. This shop had the BEST natural lighting on a snowy day.


I know the cereal milk latte did not originate at this shop, but it's the only placed I've been to that has served it. I believe the idea originated with Christina Tosi of Milk Bar.
