What is “i heart you coffee”?


If you follow me on my other blog, Dreaming in Blush, then you might be thinking “another blog?!” Well, let me explain…

My first love is beauty. That passion kicked off my YouTube channel, AllThatGlitters21, and has stayed an absolute constant through my 5 years of vlogging and blogging. Dreaming in Blush is all about beauty, with the plans to eventually expand into Fashion too. But you see, I have other obsessions as well. If you follow my second channel then you might know some…

Pinecone and beauty products... two of my favorite things.
Organization. Décor. Books. Pinecone.

I could combine all of this into one blog; in fact, most bloggers only have one blog, one main space for everything that they want to write about. It keeps things consistent for readers as well, since they don’t have to subscribe to bookmark more than one website. I can see the appeal. However, I have decided to make mine separate (obviously). The reason for this is that I follow a bunch of blogs, and I find that some of them are too broad and if I am looking for one type of post, like organization, they are buried under so many other types of posts that I end up getting frustrated and start following other, more curated, blogs instead.

Sometimes I am in the mood to read beauty and fashion blogs. The design of Dreaming in Blush is my idea of the perfect site for this type of mood (keep in mind that everyone is different, this is just my idea of perfect). When I want to learn about new products or get inspired by fashion I want a soft, dreamy, pretty blog to read. On the flip side, when I want to be inspired to clean my apartment, organize something, or to be more productive overall, I like to visit bright and happy blogs.

And so, the time has come to introduce you to i heart you coffee. You guys know of my love for coffee, and this blog is going to be the place I come to inspire and be inspired. It will have organizational tips, home décor, book reviews, healthy lifestyle tips, recipes, and stuff about kitties (like Pinecone). I also hope that it will be a place that I can document the changes happening in my new condo; as I organize and decorate little pieces of it I want to share that on here. Grab a cup of coffee, and I hope you stay awhile!

  7. I'm so happy you're now on the 'blog world' :) I started watching you and Blair on youtube almost since the begging, and keep on watch you guys these days! I created a blog last summer (because I'm too shy for youtube, and I looove photography, so blogger suits me better), and it's so nice to have you using now too :) It makes it more possible to interact! (since you guys have zilions of comments on youtube and tweets to read everyday..!)

    Looking forward to read your posts! I looove home décor, can't wait for you to post about it!

  9. I'm super excited about this one since I like decor and organization (and cats) more than beauty (not that much of a girly girl). Following!

  11. I agree. Subbing to multiple blogs isn't even that much hassle. Especially now everyone is obsessed with feed readers in preparation for google reader closing down.

  15. Can't wait for more posts on your new blog, and on dreaming in blush :) I personally combine beauty, and lifestyle (and now a tiny bit of design) into one blog, although I'm primarily a lifestyle and advice blogger, I have a few beauty posts as well. It's mostly just easier for me to have an all in one blog.

  18. Pinecone is just the most beautiful little thing... I'm so glad you started this blog. I'm not hugely into beauty blogs but have adored your youtube channel for ages. Will be fun to see this other side of you. Have a great weekend x

  19. I really like the idea of separate blogs. (What a surprise, that's what I did myself. :D) I love how this blog looks!

  20. I'm waiting for your book reviews! I miss your Glitteratures :)

  21. I like the idea behind the blog; however the name makes it sound like it's a blog about coffee. You're gonna have to tag it to death to get it to show up in searches. I can't stand the taste or smell of coffee, not to mention the horrific breath coffee drinkers have. Yuck. Unfortunately I am a Coke addict. I've tried many times to quit, to no avail. I applaud your success in breaking your addiction.
