UPDATE, UPDATE!

I know you’ve heard me say this all before, but this time the plan is for the transition to be  permanent! I am no longer A CUP OF J or JKFACEE, but COFFEE AND HONEYCOMB.
(You like the new name? Me too. A lot.)

Curious to see what the fuss is all about? Click (www.coffeeandhoneycomb.blogspot.com) to check, check, check it out! Please say hello and share some love once you’re there. (:

Also, be sure to follow the new blog on BLOGLOVIN’ as well. You can do that in one really easy-peasy step here!

Thank you to my 100 consistent subscribed readers for following along as I ranted on my daily musings, my receding hairline, traveling through europe, and transitioning back home this summer. You are all pretty wonderful.  

Ps. Did you know we hit the 100-mark?! I know that is nothing extraordinary in this massive blogosphere, but it’s pretty impressive in my book.

Pps. Did you know this month also marks the 1-year anniversary of this wittle blog? Read my first post here. It was when I turned 20. Soon, I’ll be 21.

Ppps. Did you know when I type in “jkfacee” on Google it asks me if what I meant to say was “jerkface?” Nope, that’s not what I meant. Do you see the needed name change here now… 

Just kidding. Okay, stop reading now. I’ll see you over at the new hot spot. There’ some free goodies waiting for you!

Cheers!

XO.

Friday Five

IMG_5215

Magical dusk at Barceloneta Beach.

This week was filled with several special moments, including celebrating a friend’s birthday, visiting Vicenzia, finding a new favorite cafe, and appreciating time for rest. I leave for Rome Saturday and friends of friends have graciously welcomed us to stay at their home for the night and even offered a ride to the airport. On Sunday, we leave for Greece where we’ll spend the rest of the Easter Break. Hopefully I’ll return with some color on my skin! It actually feels a bit strange that I won’t be celebrating this Easter at home. My church hosts a “passion week” revival and an extravagant Easter dinner each year, and although I can’t join them, I will keep this holiday in mind and be joyful nonetheless. Jesus has risen, people! Hallelujah! (:

Here are my five favorites of the week. Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

Sail boats were everywhere in Spain and it ignited a new desperate desire in me to find a sail buddy. Where’s a Nolan when you need one? (“Revenge”, anyone?)

Coffee gelato + girl talk @ Amorino.

We celebrated a friend’s 21st birthday with 21 gelato pops! (Scoops of gelato dipped in chocolate, then frozen) I tried the custard and mint — both were delicious. Now I’m looking for a reason to make my way over there and try more flavors.

A new store has opened in Verona; it’s comparable to a Nordstrom or Whole Foods. The first floor is a sophisticated eatery complete with an oyster bar, sandwich counter, fresh produce, and more. The design is phenomenal and I found myself equally enchanted by both the food AND branding. I plan on copying this hanging clipboard design to showcase print in my future apartment. 

Happy Friday!
XO.

Happy News

My two favorite bloggers, Elise from elisejoy and Elsie from a beautiful mess, have partnered up together to create an e-course on blogging. 

I was really excited to hear the news. It’s like hearing for the first time that messy buns are in style. Or that you can buy nutella and crackers together. Or that it’s not just you that doesn’t shave during the fall. It’s every girl.

Do you know what feeling I’m talking about. Pure freaking happiness.

But really, if I want to be serious about this whole blogging thing, I should take a quick tip from the pros and my source of inspiration, right? Maybe I’ll check it out.

Here’s a link to it if you’re interested in learning more about it. http://eliseblaha.typepad.com/golden/2012/11/blog-design-love-e-course.html
