Morning Musings: 6.12.17


  1. I bought my first french press and it’s life-changing. I love having a reason to invest in myself in the morning. I’m always open to suggestions and recommendations – what’s your favorite coffee?
  2. Every Type-A workaholic needs a kick-butt planner. The Day Designer (and their free printables, hint hint, nudge nudge) is changing my life, one to-do-list at a time.
  3. Love a good breakfast but hate rushing to work in the a.m.? Word to the wise, meal prep your breakfast ahead of time. Add this bomb sausage-veggie fritatta recipe to this week’s lineup. Your mornings are about to get much easier + tastier. #treatyoself
  4. Starting to lose your love for avocado toast? Try adding a dollop of Wild Friends Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter + banana to some whole wheat bread for a sweet & salty start. It’s better for you than reaching for your trusty Nutella, so you’ll probably thank yourself for it.
  5. I’ve been listening to podcasts like crazy lately, especially during AM workouts. It’s a great way to get your mind off of the 5am wakeup-call. I personally love listening to news outlets first thing in the morning. It’s my multi-tasking version of reading the newspaper over coffee. (checkout NPR’s Up First for a quick dose of the news!)
    • Current favorites:
      • The Balanced Blonde: Soul on Fire
      • NPR Up First
      • My Favorite Murder
      • What You Missed in History Class
  6. Speaking of getting the news, I’ve been loving reading The Skimm. Do you subscribe? If not, you should.

    If you like your French-Press, consider getting a Moka pot (it’s like an Italian stovetop espresso maker). Bialetti is sold all over, the Strip and most Giant Eagle has them–they’re easy to use, and you don’t need filters or anything but ground beans (coffee or espresso). I’ve gotta recommend Illy coffee for it (Italy’s finest you can find in the grocery store).

    Take a look sometime!
