If We Were Having Coffee.

If we were having coffee, I’d probably order a latte of sorts, whether it be chai, regular or pumpkin spice. And of course a cinnamon bun on the side.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how I’m doing well, life is very much pondering by and isn’t too exciting really. I’ve got some jobs which will help me save for future travels, but haven’t started one even though I got it back in August, they are being kinda lazy with signing me up. Funny part about this is it’s my dad who’s the boss…

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I hate personal statements, and you’d probably agree. So much to confine in 4000 characters, I’m finding it impossible. But on the brighter side I’d tell you I’ve made some choices in schools and finding audition pieces is going really well.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how I’m seeing my bestest friend in the entire world at the end of the month, she had to move away at the end of year 11 and alas meeting up has always been a struggle. But I get to go see her and I’m super excited!

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m desperately looking for something new to read. I finished Girl on the Train ages ago now and just haven’t found anything that catches my eye. I’m very picky with books as it is, it has to really engage me from the word go, I can’t work my way into a story and aimlessly read to the middle.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how I’m so desperate to travel. Researching a trip to Bali is great and I believe I can save up to go early next year, but I just want to hop on a plane and go. C’est la vie.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m loving blogging. I never thought I’d love it this much. I put a face to the name and now attending blogger events. I’ve made so many friends who are all lovely and I just feel like, well, a blogger.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how I’ve been stuck at home as we don’t have one of our cars so we can’t get anywhere. And it has made me realise how ready I am to go to a city, preferably London, but who knows.

Until next time,

Em x

    Absolutely loved reading this! It was so calming and just so real!

    If we were having coffee i’d probably order a chai latte and go on and on about how fallen in love with blogging, but still feel like there’s so much more for me to do than what i’m doing now!

    I’ve never seen a post like this before, it’s so unique! I don’t personally like coffee though, so I’d probably change this to types of tea! Great post lovely, very interesting. X

  14. I absolutely ADORE this post. So creative and unique – I have to step up my blogging game. LOL

    I really love this as a post idea, it’s a really unique spin on the usual “catch up” posts which I really like! I totally think you should turn this into a tag, it’s such a lovely thing to do! I’ll have a hot chocolate though please! hehe!

    Cute post idea! Makes me feel like I’m sitting down to have coffee with you, although we’ve never met. Now I’m craving coffee.

    • 20/10/2016 / 4:21 pm

      Aha I know right! Writing it I felt I was sat having coffee with just, everyone! Don’t worry, same.

  18. 20/10/2016 / 4:14 pm

    Oh love this! I’m picky with books, it takes me a while to get over characters and stuff! xox

    • 20/10/2016 / 4:21 pm

      Thank you! Same here, I can’t let go of this bond I make with it all aha! xox

  19. 20/10/2016 / 4:20 pm

    This is a really original post and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Gave me a sense of serenity! XO

    • 20/10/2016 / 4:22 pm

      Ahh thank you so much!! xo

    Can we please go for pumpkin spice lattes and talk about books? <3 x

    • 20/10/2016 / 4:25 pm

      Yes, yes we most definitely can. <3 x

  21. 20/10/2016 / 4:37 pm

    If we were having coffee…I’d actually be having tea :p Haha lovely post! I really like the idea of updating readers on your life through this medium! I’ve not seen it anywhere before, if someone else hasn’t done it you should start a tag! I’d love to to a post like this but no way do I steal ideas! So if you do a tag just lemme know as I’ll be one of the first to use it 😉

    Good luck with your personal statement and application though! I’m sure you’ll get where you want to be <3 xx


    • 20/10/2016 / 4:40 pm

      Don’t blame you, can’t beat a good cuppa!! Aww thank you!! I haven’t either, and I’ve been told this before but reluctant in case someone has and would anyone do it😂 You’re welcome to use it lovely!! But I may turn it into a tag, just going to do some research first 😉
      Thank you so much!! Lets hope so aha!!❤ xx

    Love this! Love your writing style. I’d be having tea but I’m with you on the cinnamon bun. Also, personal statements are horrible!



    • 20/10/2016 / 5:00 pm

      Thank you so much!! Who doesn’t love a cuppa? They’re so good, right?? I know right they will be the bane of my existence!

      Ahaha who doesn’t love a cuppa! Thank you!

  25. 26/10/2016 / 10:13 am

    This is such a lovely idea for a post. If I were having coffee it’d be a PSL for sure at this time of year. Love how you give a little insight into yourself here – it’s a lovely read.

    Also, my friend went to Bali earlier this year and it just looks like the most beautiful place!

    • 26/10/2016 / 10:17 am

      Thank you so much! It’s pretty much obligatory to have a PSL aha! Ahh thank you, I’m so glad you like it.
      No way that’s amazing, I hope she had the best time! It looks like paradise!
