I am so excited to bring you all a fun collaboration with Fab this week. Haven’t heard of Fab? No problem! Let me tell you a little bit about them. Fab is a fantastic website that is basically a one-stop-shop for very on trend household items, style and tech accessories, and carefully curated art pieces. When it comes down to it, Fab wants to dress up every corner of your home and I am down with that!
When I thought about what items I would like to choose to Upgrade My Everyday with Fab, I couldn’t help but think about how much of a homebody I am. Having a cozy, friendly, and stylish home are very important to me because I am pretty introverted (yep, totally shy!) and Jonny and I really cherish coming home to each other each night for some relaxation and hanging out together on the weekends while we watch one of our current favorite shows (right now we are all about The Wire, New Girl, The Walking Dead, and of course, The Bachelor). One thing that I really love about the weekends is that those glorious Saturdays and Sundays are usually the only days I have to enjoy a really good cappuccino or green tea latte. However, Jonny and I are currently in major “save” mode for our wedding (six months away!) and going out to coffee, even just on the weekends, can get really expensive.
I decided to Upgrade My Everyday by adding a few awesome pieces to my kitchen and home. The first item, and let’s be honest, the one I’m most obsessed with, is the Nespresso CitiZ & Milk Black. Holy cow. I cannot believe I now own a Nespresso machine. I know, I’m super late to the party, but OMG, guys! I’m in love! I never thought that I would be able to make a coffee shop worthy cappuccino or latte in my own home.
To go with this awesome coffee machine, I needed some kick ass cups to hold this oh so fabulous coffee. Aren’t these cups to die for? I love how stylish they are without being too over the top. The dripping gold is the perfect accent on an all-white cup and I love that they are neutral enough to still go with my other mugs.
I also added this adorable pink piggy bank that is shaped like a little doggie balloon animal. I have always wanted one of these to accent one of those living room corners or bookshelves that you just can’t seem to find the right piece for. I love it because it adds a bright pop of color that is fun, but still stylish. Adding such a fun piece to your home is so refreshing and definitely counts toward my resolution to Upgrade My Everyday with Fab.
Okay, wait a second. Can I take us back to the Nespresso CitiZ & Milk frother? K, thanks. I’m going to be super honest with you for a sec. I was super intimidated to use it. I’ve only ever used a French Press for coffee, and ever since I started limiting my caffeine intake due to a sensitivity I had, I usually stick with decaf. At first, I thought this would take all the fun out of drinking coffee but I actually love it more now because I can drink coffee without feeling like crap at the end of the day.
This particular model is a DREAM to use and it feels like such a wonderful indulgence on weekend mornings and afternoons. The coffee tastes delicious and there are so many different flavors to try! Even though I love the coffee aspect, I am fully addicted to the milk frother that comes with this machine. This is what this makes this entire process feeling like a major coffee upgrade for me. Plus, just like the coffee part, it’s SO easy to use. Just simply pour milk of your choice (I used almond milk from Trader Joe’s) and push the button at the bottom. You can even froth cold milk on those hot summer days when you want iced coffee. Oh, oh, oh! You can also simultaneously froth milk and make your coffee at the same time (say whaaaat?!). Yep, I’m addicted.
Well, friends, I have to say, I’m feeling like just adding a few fabulous pieces to my everyday has definitely upgraded how I feel about my special space that I call home.
