Loving Lately // Cocoa in the Coffee Maker

Brewable Cocoa:  Crio Bru        Scoop- Williams Sonoma
Lately Loving #1-   Crio Bru Brewed Cocoa Beans

I was so intrigued when Crio Bru first came to my attention.  It's not coffee, even though it looks like coffee and brews in the coffee machine.  It's actually ground up cocoa beans that brew in the coffee maker to make a delicious drink with natural energy and all the antioxidants of cocoa. The energy isn't all caffeine, so it won't cause a spike-and-crash, but rather a gentle boost.  

My favorite way to drink it is with a tiny bit of unsweetened cashew milk, a packet of stevia, and just a pinch of sea salt.  It's wonderfully aromatic when brewing, and there are definitely chocolate notes in the taste.  If you're a fan of bitter coffee and bitter dark chocolate, you'll love it plain.  Otherwise, it's wonderful with some add ins. 

Thanks so much to the team at Crio Bru for sending this cocoa my way!  I've been brewing it up almost every morning.  The Ghana beans are my favorite!

Lately Loving #2 - J. Crew Excursion Vest

It's finally excursion vest season!  The most popular is the legendary herringbone of course, but the navy, buffalo check, and black vests are all classics and stylish bets.  Try out a fun color, too!

 Lately Loving #3-  Kate Spade Home Collection

I've been waiting for a Kate Spade home collection forever.  I fell in love with just about everything when I browsed through the line, and of course a few items landed on my wishlist.  I'm only disappointed about one thing- where's those bow pillows they have in the store?

My Favorites:

via Atlantic Pacific
Lately Loving #4- Self Portrait Clothing

I'm a lover of all things ultra-feminine, and Self Portrait's guipure lace and intricate details are a winner for me.  Blair Eadie has been rocking the line for a while now, and it's slowly becoming a favorite with celebrities.  Shop a few of my favorites below.
