cookieOptions = {...}; secondhand rose: 124/ COFFEE SHOP MEET UP

Sunday, 4 October 2015


I just want to start off by saying THANK YOU to Equator Coffee for hosting a successful #BlogOtt event and to Katrina from Oui C'est Chic for bringing us all together.

A week and a bit has passed since the September #BlogOtt meet up but it is still fresh on my mind. It was so great to finally meet local bloggers face to face that I've been following on various social media platforms. It was amazing getting to know other people who are passionate about similar avenues and to be able to discuss topics such as fashion, beauty, photography and social media tips/tricks with like-minded peers.

I was excited to learn more about coffee and its industry as well. If you know me you know that I'm an absolute fiend for coffee (#caffiend) and that I can't go more than a couple of hours without a cup. The event was held just a couple of blocks away from where I work so I was ecstatic to learn of a new coffee shop in the neighbourhood. Equator Coffee is definitely somewhere I will frequent while I'm on my breaks; the fair trade coffee was delicious, the atmosphere is definitely welcoming and they have a great selection of food as well.

I haven't been feeling very well lately so I opted to wear something comfy, casual and carefree. I wore my favourite Eileen Fisher coated denim jacket and I paired it with a basic black dress from Forever 21+, my usual leggings from ASOS Curve and I added a little bit of interest to the outfit with a lipstick patterned scarf from Kate Spade. Yes, the scarf matches my tattoo. Yes, I kind of love that it does.
