Deck the Halls Coffee Shop

HIII BABES!!!

It has been a hot minute hasn’t it!? I have been taking a lot of down time during December to just relax with friends and family and to also get ready for the New Year. I have a lot of fun stuff coming to Basic Blogger B*tch and I can’t wait to share it with you all. Even though I am in holiday relaxation mode I didn’t forget about you all, in fact I am going to be sharing one of my favourite holiday coffee shops with you guys today!

Deck the Halls Coffee Shop also known as Fiction Coffee the rest of the year, is literally one of my favourite places to chill at during December. They completely change their regular decor to look like a magical Christmas cottage and it gives you all the Christmas-y feels.

Lets start with the wall outside. This is literally any influencer/blogger’s dream, to be honest it’s anyone with a cameras dream. You can’t not want a picture with it!

Can we also just take a minute to admire this decor inside? I feel like I am in Mrs. Clause’s house every time I walk in. I would honestly be there everyday if I could!!

Take a look at this holiday menu you guys. Those names are E V E R Y T H I N G am I right?! My personal fave is the Falala-Latte(The second picture) it tastes like Christmas in a cup.

If you live in Dallas I 1000% recommend stopping in because you will never want to leave once you do ;) It will definitely get you in the Christmas spirit. DTHCS is open everyday leading up to Christmas Day and their last day is the 31st, so you can go anytime between now and then.

As always if you have any questions or comments leave them down below or hit me up on any of my socials, I love talking to you guys so don’t be shy ;)

I hope you are all having a wonderful December so far!

Coffee With A Cause

Happy Monday Babes!!!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and are ready to kill this weeks goals, whatever they may be for you. If you need a little inspo to help you get driven, this post is definitely for you! I am going to be sharing my FAVE coffee shop in Houston A2ndCup and their amazing mission.

A2ndCup is a coffee shop that is making major moves against human trafficking in Houston. They are completely non-profit, using the sales from the shop to help end human trafficking. They are also channeling their profits into aftercare solutions for human trafficking survivors such as education, counselling, work experience, etc. As their profits grow they are also hoping to start donating to other partner organizations that are fighting to end human trafficking as well.

I was so ecstatic when they asked me to come in to do a write up for them. I am always looking for ways to use my platform to enact change and make a impact in the world, if I can help spread the word on the amazing things A2ndCup is doing and help educate people on human trafficking how could I pass that up?

While I was there I had a chance to try out some of their coffees and seriously guys they were all phenomenal! I tried the Sweet Toff Iced, Latte, Cortado, and the Horchata Sidekick. My favourites out of them all were definitely the Latte and Sweet Toff but they were all amazing!

If you are ever in Houston I can't recommend stopping in A2ndCup enough. They are doing such amazing work and nothing tastes better than coffee with a cause, plus their coffee makes a great Instagram shot ;)

Cultivar Coffee and Hypnotic Donuts

Hey Babes!!

How's everyones Sunday Funday going? My SF plans literally consist of brunching and Netflixing because this weekend and past week have been insane!

Speaking of last week though, I finally had a chance to roam Denton and hit up Cultivar Coffee and Hypnotic Donuts! First of all I had no idea they were in the same building together! That was crazy convenient because I was fully prepared to drive to both but didn't have to. It also made grouping them into one giant post sound even better.

Lets start with Cultivar! For starters their latte is literally one of the best iced lattes I have EVER had. I know that definitely sounds like and exaggeration but I kid you not it was freaking amazing.

I tried the plain and the vanilla and both were out of this world perfection. I could've gone through at least 2-3 more if I'm being honest, I might have a small problem!

After ordering my coffee I crossed the room to Hypnotic Donuts, SO CONVENIENT! Seriously everything they are making looks delicious AF and I had the hardest time choosing.

I decided to go with these 6 amazing looking donuts you see before you. Starting from the upper left this what they all are Orange Cake, Strawberry Cake, Holy Canoli, Blueberry Cake, Espresso Yo Self, and the Homer.

I definitely ODed on sugar but it was 1000% worth it because y'all these donuts are everything! I mean they're adorable and taste great, what else could you ask for!?

Because I'm extra I created my own aesthetic drink using donuts from Hypnotic and the latte from Cultivar. It's Instagramable AF and should definitely become a thing. It needs a name so if you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments or on my socials!!

I definitely recommend that you all hit up Cultivar Coffee and Hypnotic Donuts as soon as you get the chance. The coffee is amazing and so are the donuts. Plus coffee and donuts are a winning duo ;)
