Coffee & Reading the Morning Paper

Happy December, everyone! We hope that everyone had a beautiful week this week.
We saw on Instagram that the cast of Emily in Paris is in DC this week!! The 2nd season comes out December 22nd. Did you read our 10 Ways to Replicate Emily in Paris Episodes in Washington, DC? Check it out!
+Make sure that you start ordering your holiday gifts 🙂 See some ideas, below. There are a few holiday markets happening this weekend, as well. We recommend the following:
Traditional coffee ceremony, performances and African crafts!
Pre-Sale Tickets sold out but you can purchase them at the door 🙂 RAKO COFFEE ROASTERS, ALA COFFEE & MORE, & CHOCOLATE MOONSHINE CO, will be attending, as well as many more delicious and crafty offerings.
  • Bar & Cocoa has an amazing selection of holiday chocolate gifts.
  • In the mood for something even more luxurious?? Try a Vosges Haut Chocolate “holiday pick” from the chocolatier, Katrina Markoff, herself! Deals happening all weekend. We’re eyeing the “Ritual Collection for Peace” box, OR perhaps the Prima Materia Truffle Collection (image below); both look incredible. We have thoroughly relished these Vosges chocolate boxes in the past — it’s like an entire chocolate experience.

Quote for the Weekend

Those who restrain their desire do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained.

Some Chocolate Dessert

Have YOU been watching School of Chocolate on Netflix? We’re on episode 3 this week and are trying to pace ourselves. His creations are unbelievable! Check out the trailer below.

  • We love this autumn/winter aesthetic from the picture. She looks so cozy. Buy similar ethical boots, from here and always “shop your own closet,” too. Maybe something is hidden in the corners!

Have a lovely weekend, with a time cupsoul, of course.
