DIY Iced Coffee

I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like I need a coffee IV in my body for 24/7 caffeine absorption. <- not at all dramatic.

One of my favorite things about the summer is iced coffee. To be honest, I live in Southern California sooooo iced coffee is almost a year-round necessity.

I can’t even tell you how much $$ I have spent at Starbucks over the years. I’d tried to make my own iced coffee the classic newbie way- making a cup of hot coffee and adding creamer and ice cubes in it. I’m sure you can guess how well that turned out- watery, bland and undrinkable.

So today I’m sharing my go-to easy iced coffee recipe!

Once you prep, it’s the easiest, quickest drink to make before you run out the door. And even the prep is simple, honestly. So let’s get  into it!

These last few weeks have literally flown by and I cannot believe we are already almost through June. It feels like it’s been such a blur, but not in the wow-where-did-the-time-go kind of way. More like a holy-crap-what’s-happening-ahhhhhhhhh kind of way.

 Driving into to work that morning, I thought about what my life had been like lately- busy. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I thrive off having things to do and trying to utilize all the hours of my day to be productive. But that kind of drive comes with a downside too. How many of those hours did I devote to taking care of me? Not a whole lot, to be honest.

3 Tips for a Better Night’s Sleep

Cute robe is a must/ Essential Oils/ the best sleepy tea

Getting a full, good night’s sleep feels like it’s hard to come by these days. More often than not, I find myself waking up and feeling exhausted throughout the day- and I’m definitely not the only one. And unfortunately, I’m guilty of medicating that exhaustion with extra-large iced coffees. Oops ;)
So I’ve been trying to change my routine at night. One of the main reasons we struggle with sleeping well is that we  don’t set ourselves up for success pre-pillow time.

Welcome to the re-launch of The Bloom Style blog!

This blog has been something I’ve worked on kind of on and off for a few years and I recently decided I wanted to stop half-assing it and really put in the effort to create strong, consistent content that would be valuable to you guys.

I’ve spent the last month or so re-designing the site, creating a lot of content and just overall honing the purpose of the blog and being able to get my voice across in an authentic way.

Look forward to some great content here – beauty, style, health/wellness, travel, recipes, etc! I’m really excited to see what this new chapter will bring and for you all to be a part of the adventure.

I love interacting with all you fabulous babes, so please always comment on blog or social posts or send me emails if you have any thoughts, questions, fun facts- whatever!

Let me know your thoughts on the re-design and maybe a few things you’d love to see on the blog!

Happy Friday!

xo.
