I always love when I find great coffee shops in my neighborhood. It makes getting a quick cup easy and convenient. I stopped by Compass Coffee on 8th Street NW. I had a dirty chai, which is just a chai tea latte with 2 shots of espresso. It is one of my favorite drinks during fall. I love the spiciness of the chai, and I of course love the energy boost. Check out a dirty chai at Compass Coffee, and tell them I sent you!
As I mentioned a few blogs ago, I love to shop. However, there have been some things that I have bought and now regret.
- My leather backpack and tote from Madewell. Now I absolutely love my backpack and tote, and I love Madewell. I wish I would have known how much maintenance goes into keeping leather clean and nice. The maintenance cost is definitely something you should consider with any purchase.
- This summer in New York, my friend and I stumbled upon a pop up shop, Amanu, that specializes in handmade sandals. My shoes are the coolest thing ever and I get so many compliments, but they were EXPENSIVE! In hindsight I should’ve gone to Target.
- Now this one might seem counter intuitive, but please do not buy textbooks. I have spent so much money buying textbooks that are in PDF form or that we never used in class. Triple check the internet before purchasing books because chances are you can find the material you need for free!
Make sure what you buy is feasible. Other wise you’ll be stuck with some regrets.
