Caffeine Queen, Jimmy Case, and a LINKUP

4:00 AM

Top:  Cocoa + JAM // Belt:  Burberry (Ewa Bazaar) // Skirt:  Sheinside // Birkenstock:  Zappos // Phone:  jimmyCASE

Ok y’all.  If you know me you know that I LOVE my coffee.  I’ve been drinking coffee since forever.  My mom told me a story about where my love for coffee started.  When I was a little itty bitty baby in my diapers just barely being able to walk, my mom would drink coffee throughout the day and leave it on the coffee table.  When she would come back it would be gone.  She thought that maybe either the dog drank it or she did without even knowing it.  That tells you how hectic stay at home mom life is, if you can’t even remember how much coffee you drank!  The only crazy part is it was consistently happening.  Then one day my mom caught me red handed!  It was me the little baby drinking her coffee.  Now, my mom takes her coffee strong with no sugar, so imagine me as a baby actually liking it.  Well my mom learned her lesson to keep her coffee away from me.

Then once I got older I was always drinking coffee.  I think now it’s not even the caffeine anymore, I think it’s more of the routine it’s become.  It could also be because meeting up for coffee has become a thing for me since I don’t go to bars anymore or out to dinner coffee is the next best thing.  Coffee is also something I didn’t have to give up during the 21 Day Fix!  That is the story behind why I’m the caffeine queen.  I probably drink my weight in coffee!

Now, where can you get this awesome shirt?  Cocoa + JAM is the name of the store you want to snatch up this top from!  They just opened their Etsy shop not too long ago and this is just one of many tshirts they have.  They also carry totes that have cute little sayings on them.  One of my other favorites is “idk. Google it.”  Seriously though the sayings on these tops are adorable and they are at an affordable price along with shipping being a great price too.  Even though this shipped from California, it was here in NJ super quick.  I was actually pleasantly surprised at how quick it was delivered.

I also wanted to introduce another brand that I collaborated with on this post.  You see that awesome phone case?  That’s by jimmyCASE.  Now, look closer.  See how there’s a stripe going across?  That’s a piece of stretchy fabric that holds my money ID and a credit card.  If I’m just running into a store I don’t want to lug my purse around so this is the perfect alternative.  Here’s a little story from the creator of this awesome concept:

Before starting jimmyCASE, I worked as a TV executive (American Gladiators, ABC Family). I was always frustrated carrying my wallet in one pocket and iPhone in another -- on the set, going through airport security, or just sitting down with my stuffed pockets. I kept thinking to myself, wouldn't it be great to simplify your life and get rid of your wallet? So I decided to do both: I designed the jimmyCASE in my Southern California garage and gave up my TV career to make jimmyCASES full time.
Our mission is simple: to make a fun, functional and exceptionally well-crafted wallet case that simplifies your life. 
Why buy a jimmyCASE? 
Elastic pocket stretches to carry what you need - Unlike wallet cases made from plastic or leather which have limited stretch, jimmyCASE is designed to be used without stretching out. jimmyCASE's elastic bands are custom-woven just for us, giving our cases the flexibility hold up to six cards or bulky items like a car key without losing elasticity.
Premium construction and materials - Each jimmyCASE is assembled by hand in our East Los Angeles factory. The wood core is made from military-grade mahogany, which is incredibly strong and light. The silicone bumper wraps all the way around the phone and offers full-frame protection and exceptional lay-on-the-table technology. 
No pesky flap - Unlike folio-style wallet cases, there is no flap to get in the way when you are talking on the phone, or block the camera when you are taking a picture.

Just to add I haven’t stopped using my jimmyCASE.  I love this thing.  It’s so convenient!  Not to mention it’s also super cute with the wood look and the different colored elastic bands they have.  Now, moving on to the top 3 from last week and the linkup!
