Greenville’s Best Coffee Shops

I don’t think it’s a secret that i love coffee. In college, a coffee shop was my choice study spot. What’s even better is hanging out at a coffee shop when you don’t have to study! I love to go and read, catch up with a friend, or do some journaling. So, if you’re ever in the Greenville area, below is my list of top Greenville coffee shops!
 #1 – Due South is definitely a top choice. it’s in a wonderful old mill, so you better believe it is full of character. It reminds me a little of Barista Parlor in Nashville, which of course makes me think of that wonderful trip to Nashville we took last year, which makes me associate Due South with total happiness. Girls, right? … the way we connect things ;)
#2 – Tandem Creperie and Coffeehouse is located right outside of Greenville in Traveler’s Rest. Traveler’s Rest has the cutest little downtown, with a beautiful view of the mountains just in the distance. Tandem serves the best crepes I’ve ever eaten, and lattes that are out of this world.

#3 – Methodical Coffee recently opened in downtown Greenville, and now has to be my favorite coffee shop in town. Not only do they have the most darling atmosphere (i’m crazy over white tile!) , but their coffee is out of this world.

the village grind bar# 4 – The Village Grind is located in the up and coming Village of West Greenville. It’s the cutest little pocket of town with fabulous art galleries and shops. I am obsessed with every little detail inside The Village Grind. I’m thinking about hiring their owner to come decorate my house ;).

coffee-2Bundergroud-2Bdowntown-2Bgreenville1#4 – Coffee Underground is a long-time favorite coffee shop. In high school, my friends and I use to come here on weekends or on Friday nights and get lattes, study, or just hang out and chat. This place holds so many nostalgic memories for me, and to this day it’s one of my favorite spots to really focus and get work done. Not to mention, their brunch and desserts are out of this world.

coffee-2Band-2Bcrema-2Blove-2Blola-2Bblog#5 – Coffee and Crema is a lovely “walk-thru” in downtown Greenville. You know, like a drive-thru except without a car … Is that like not the cutest thing ever!? Maybe I’ve been under a rock all my life, but I’ve never seen a little coffee window like this. It’s perfect for if you’re strolling downtown and just want to grab a drink and get on your way.

So there you have it, my favorite spots in Greenville to sit down and grab a cup o’ joe! If you live in the area, or ever visit, you’ll have to try them out – you won’t be sorry! :)

I was once told that writing down five things you’re grateful for each day can really shift your perspective and give you a more positive outlook on life. I’ve found this to be true in my own life, and should really be practicing it more! But for now, here are my five things…

1. Longer days! And sunshine on my face! – I am prone to some winter blues, and when I get home from work and the sun is already down, I don’t feel like doing anything but going to bed. Now, that the sun is out longer, I have felt re-energized and have gotten so much more done with my days!

2. Cuddles with Sage – This pup is a snuggle bug. And there’s nothing like when he’s sleepy and just wants to be close. It’s my favorite.

3. Make-up shopping – I love browsing Ulta and checking out new products. It’s become very therapeutic for me.

4. Journaling – This doesn’t happen as much these days, but when it does, it’s the best! I just got this new journal from Rifle Paper Co. and I can’t wait to fill up the pages.

5. Baking – Also therapeutic, and I’ve been trying to do it more. I’ve been searching for some healthier baked goods – like muffins and quick breads for breakfast. If you have any favorites, leave them in the comments below!

I hope you’re having a lovely week, full of surprisingly wonderful moments!

shoe crush

 

Here are  few of my favorite shoe picks for spring! I certainly fit the stereotype for girls that we are ‘shoe crazy.’ I go mad over shoes. I think the number of shoes in my closet are starting to out number my number of clothes. kiiiiding. But seriously, sometimes when i’m getting dressed I think to myself “Maybe I should start investing in more clothes because I have nothing to wear these shoes with!” Whoops.

Also, birkenstock’s are back. I am so sad I didn’t save my pair from middle school – I’m pretty sure I’m still the same shoe size.

transitioning to spring

stylestyle love lolastyle love lola blog greenvilleprofile 2South Carolina weather can be so indecisive … especially this time of year. One day it’s 80 degrees out, and another day it’s cold and rainy and i’m back in my sweaters and boots. During that seasonal “in-between” time I always opt for scarves and peep-toe booties. If it warms up, I can always take my scarf off, and peep-toe booties are the perfect cross between winter booties and spring sandals.

Wishing you a fabulous week!
