Happy Monday! 

Today has definitely been a Monday! We dropped Julian off at school, came back home, I started on laundry, cleaned up the house, got ready for the day, worked on the blog and now I'm about to start on dinner! It feels like I just made breakfast! haha 

Today's blog post is all about my comfy outfits! As much as I love wearing heels & wedges, I also like a little comfy outfit here and there! The leggings that I wore on Monday & Wednesday are my favorite go-to leggings! And obviously Thursday's leggings have recently became a favorite as well! Would you believe me if I told you they were from Wal-Mart (in store)? They were on sale for $9! They're from the brand "Avia" and I'd recommend sizing down! Give them a try! They're great! 

I hope you all have a wonderful week full of positivity & love! 
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog & for continuing to support me!

Happy Monday friends! 
Wow, I feel like January is the LONGEST month ever! But every other month just flies by! I've had the best productive Monday so far. I got so many things done this morning and now I'm making dinner, salmon & brussell sprouts. It's my first time making salmon so wish me luck! 

If you follow me on IG [@coffeewithrosa] or watch my stories [I try post there daily] than you saw my Walmart Try-On that I did! I wanted to shop somewhere super affordable yet trendy! And let me tell y'all Walmart has definitely stepped their game up in the Fashion department! Last Fall or this Fall, Fall of 2018 haha I found THIS gorgeous top! And I wasn't disappointed this time either! 

I am ALWAYS wearing my American Eagle jeans! They are so soft, comfy, high waisted so they hug you in so nicely! I was SO surprised when I tried these jeans from Walmart because Y'ALL! They are super similar! I've had a couple of girls message me letting me know they went out and bought them and they loved them too! They're from the brand "NO BOUNDARIES", I bought mine on sale for $9!! I know insane! I think the original price ranged from $12-15, I can't remember #momlife. 

The only down side is, that they only have them in store! But girl! Go out and get a pair I promise you, you won't be disappointed! 

Okay now that I've talked wonders about these jeans, the Time & Tru collection from Walmart also has some really good pieces! I also found this sweater on sale! I love the confetti pattern that it has and it's perfect to pair with jeans and leggings. I've linked some similar ones (Look under outfit details). 

Last thing-I promise! I mentioned I was going to be working with Rocksbox for the next few months, If you haven't heard of it, it's basically a try before you buy $21/month jewelry subscription! You get 3 pieces every month (free shipping both ways), buy what you love, you can use the $21 as credit towards whatever piece or pieces you want to buy, or just simply return everything. 

I ended up buying these studs because I use them daily! (I'm wearing them now), best $12 I've spent! If you'd like to give it a try, you can use my code "coffeewithrosaxoxo" and get your first month free! After that first month you can either continue with the subscription ($21/month) or cancel! COPY & PASTE THIS

COFFEE TALK: GIVING UP ON BLOGGING?

Monday, January 14, 2019

Happy Monday!

Okay so we haven't had the best Monday, BUT we're making the best out of it! I hope y'all are having a much better day than us. 

We visited San Marcos for the first time on Sunday, and y'all! I loved it! Dallas is still my top favorite but San Marcos is pretty close. I don't know if y'all ever watched the show Ghost Whisperer but it reminded me so much of that little plaza. We might be planning a trip to go back down during the Summer! 


Today I wanted to talk about something pretty amazing that happened on Friday. So last week I was in such a slump, I was feeling so discouraged about my blog and Instagram account. I usually try NOT to let the "numbers" affect me but sometimes they do get to you. You see other people growing their account way faster than you, you see them taking prettier pictures, having a bigger following, just all the things! 

I started to feel like maybe this (blogging) was just a dream and maybe I wouldn't be able to make a career out of it, and I just wasn't feeling good enough. I also thought about just quitting, if you've read THIS POST than you know I've quit this dream a few times already. I was pretty close this time to quitting for the millionth time, and I prayed to God. I prayed that he'd give me a sign on what I should do, if this dream was worth it, if I was going to be able to achieve it. 

Friday came along and I still didn't have a "sign", well I decided to get on IG and chat with y'all on stories about my recent FAVORITE lipstick combo! I heard about the lipstick from Jaclyn Hill & Emily Gemma! So I tagged them in my story. About an hour passed and I got a notification that Emily Gemma REPOSTED my story! If you don't know who she is, you need to check her out! She's the writer of THE SWEETEST THING BLOG  ! I have followed her for SO LONG, she's one of my favorite bloggers, and I get so many outfit inspirations from her! 

She's a pretty big deal in the blogging community! So after she reposted me, I had quite a bit of people reach out to me! It was all positive feedback and they were glad they found my account from Emily's story! They mentioned my blog and I don't know about you but I felt like that was my SIGN from the good Lord! I feel like that was the push that I needed! 

NEVER lose FAITH ladies and gentleman! So after that happened I made a list of all the things I wanted to accomplish with my blog and the things that I had already accomplished, and just seeing it on paper made me realize I've come pretty far, I've worked with a couple of companies that I LOVE! And I have so much to be grateful for! 

So that's my little COFFEE TALK for today! I hope y'all enjoyed this post! Thank you so much for taking the time to read and for continuing to support my blog! 

COFFEE TALK: LOSING FRIENDSHIPS

Monday, January 7, 2019

Happy Monday girlfriends! 

I hope the new year has been good to you so far! For me, so far so good, still working on the waking up at 5am thing though! haha It'll take some time but I'll get there! We did all the things today! I'm feeling so accomplished! Oh and of course I have to brag on myself! I was finally brave enough to go out with my tripod (and toddler) and shoot some pictures! They came out pretty good, I'm so excited to bring some new content to the blog! 


So I've been wanting to write about this topic for quite a while now! I don't know if it's just me or what it is, but I feel like it's so hard to make new friends and friendships! Especially now that I'm a little older, I know what kind of people I want to surround myself with and the harder it gets to find people that support and inspire you. 

I use to have a couple of best friends in high school, we were so close and literally told each other everything and they knew just about every single thing there was to know about me, the good and bad. They were there when I needed them, and honestly I thought we'd be friends forever! Cheesy, I know. I never in a million years, thought  we'd grow apart, and not even speak to each other at this point. 

Fast forward 8+ years later and we have probably only seen each other a handful or less of times. Isn't SO crazy! I read a quote on Pinterest, and I can't remember exactly how it goes, but it basically stated how, maybe you were only friends with people in school because you saw each other 5 days a week, maybe y'all weren't meant to be "best friends". And I truly believe this, now don't get me wrong I know TONS of people who have been best friends since school, I think I just have bad luck making and keeping friends. 

I enjoy my alone time, and y'all should know this by now hahaha but I'd be lying if I tell you that I'm not jealous of friendships that have lasted YEARS! But hey things happen for a reason, am I right? And the older I get the more I learn to value people, I know it sounds kinda, I don't know, harsh? But it's true, I didn't value my parents when I was younger but now, I know all they went through to give us this life, same thing with friends, I now value them so much more, because I know the good ones are hard to find. 



I hope y'all enjoyed this quick rant! A girl's gotta vent to someone! lol

5 BAD HABITS TO BREAK THIS YEAR 













5 BAD HABITS TO BREAK THIS YEAR (2019)

Tuesday, January 1, 2019

Happy Monday! 

I'm currently sitting at Starbucks writing this post and I feel SO motivated! I might have to make this a once a week kinda thing. 

First of all, did 2018 fly by or what? I feel like I just made a list of my 2018 goals, and here I am already starting on 2019's! The older I get the more I realize that time REALLY does fly by! Julian will be FOUR! And although it's six months away, it still makes my heart ache that my little 6 pound baby is growing up way too fast. My nephew is going to be one! My husband and I will reach our mid twenties! I though I'd have my life together by 25! Let's all take a moment to laugh at that! 

If there is one thing I LOVE about New Year's is that it gives you a fresh start! It's a new chapter in your life, and you can either improve or be stuck where you are now, it's your choice! I always like to start the New Year with a clean house! My mom ALWAYS made us clean our rooms and do our laundry on New Years Eve. So today I'm going to be tackling all the things! 

There are so many things I have definitely improved on last year but towards the end I started to slack off a little bit! I started to pick up bad habits and quite honestly I'm ready to break them! So for today's blog post I'm going to be sharing 5 Bad Habits To Break In 2019! 






SLEEPING IN! - I was waking up super early for a few months! I would wake up at about 6am, workout, get ready for my day, drink my coffee, work on my blog, and have some "me" time all before 8am! And then that's usually the time Julian would be waking up. But I have been sleeping in WAY too many times! It feels like my whole day is gone when I wake up any later than 7:30! So this year I am making it a priority to wake up around 5:30 or 6!  If you've ever listened to a motivational speech than you know the number one thing they say is that waking up early helps start your day in a positive way! 

NEGATIVE THINKING! -  I am SO guilty of this! And it's definitely a habit that I need to break! My husband could tell me he'll be home at 6 and if it's 6:30 and he's still not home yet I start to panic and start thinking the worst! Or if I text someone and they text back with an "okay" no emoji or anything, I'll start overthinking their text, assuming they're mad or maybe I did something! And just with about anything my first thought is always negative! So my mind set for this year will be more of a "oh crap I have a flat tire, well good thing I have a spare"! 

PROCRASTINATING -  I think we may all be guilty of this! I know I am for sure! I love putting things off! And quite frankly I use to be so good at getting things done and on time. But now it's totally a different story. Like I have a few things on my to-do list already that NEED to get done, but it involves doctors offices, and insurance calls and I just keep putting it off. This might the number one habit that I really need to break this year. 

SAVING THINGS FOR THE "PERFECT" OCCASION-  This might be something that all women do but I have the bad habit of ALWAYS trying to save a good outfit for the "perfect" occasion. Sometimes I wait for so long that I don't ever end up wearing the outfit. This goes for everything in life, stop waiting for the perfect moment, create it! 

STAYING OFF THE PHONE! -  Another one that we might ALL be guilty of! I have improved so much since last year but I still feel like I'm on my phone WAY too much! I use to wake up and the first thing I would do is spend at least an hour just scrolling through Instagram or Pinterest. I really want to spend just an hour on phone the whole day. My blog and Instagram are my hobbies, hopefully it will become my "job" soon, but I need to find the balance. I don't want to be that parent, that is looking at their phone while their kid is trying to get their attention, I have seen SOOO many!
