Review The Nespresso Maker

Coffee is a drink prepared from roasted coffee beans. Darkly coloured, bitter, and slightly acidic. Coffee has a stimulating effect on humans, primarily due to its caffeine content. It is the most popular drink in the world.

Seeds of the Coffea plant’s fruits are separated to produce unroasted green coffee beans. The beans are roasted and then ground into fine particles that are typically steeped in hot water before being filtered out, producing a cup of coffee. It is usually served hot, although chilled or ice coffee is common. I personally, prefer my beverages hot. And the only cold drink I enjoy is either a cocktail or bottle of water.

Coffee itself can be prepared and presented in a variety of ways. What is most impressive is when artisan comes to mind. And coffee art has become a huge deal. I love the designer themed ones. They just make your cup of coffee that chicer.

Expresso (my personal favourite), French press, caffe latte, or already brewed coffee. Sugar substitutes or none, cream, are all often used to mask the bitter taste or enhance the flavour. Which works out perfectly since a touch of something special can add to your coffee brewing experience. 

Though coffee is now a global commodity, it has a long history tied closely to food traditions around the Red Sea. The earliest credible evidence of coffee drinking in the form of the modern beverage appears in modern-day Yemen from the mid-15th century in Sufi shrines, where coffee seeds were first roasted and brewed in a manner similar to current methods. The Yemenis procured the coffee beans from the Ethiopian Highlands via coastal Somali intermediaries and began cultivation. By the 16th century, the drink had reached the rest of the Middle East and North Africa, later spreading to Europe. In the 20th century, coffee became a global commodity, creating different coffee cultures around the world.

Everyone loves heading over to your best cafĂ© for a cup of fun in your mouth. But when it comes to being at home, why can’t you have that taste even in your own kitchen? I have searched many products to see what can give you the taste of lattes and expresso at home. And I came up with The Nespresso Maker. Not only is this a genius in one machine. It can curb the coffee gurus in all of us and satisfy even the toughest caffeine critic. You can order the pods of any flavour and be your own barista in a flash without knowing how to make a speciality coffee drink. The machine basically does it for you and the results are worthy of a close-up.

I am not easily impressed, so it takes a lot to impress me. This comes from many things. But when it comes to this machine it has its pros and cons which I will list below if you are considering buying this as a gift for someone out there, or maybe pick it up for yourself (no judging here). I think making everyone’s life easier is a must have so keep reading with my pros and cons list on The Nespresso Maker

VertuoPlus Grey & Aeroccino3 Milk Frother

PRO

It offers the perfect combination of style and convince for a unique coffee experience at home. It isn’t bulky and looks just so sleek in your kitchen. You will literally be admiring the entire time you stand in your kitchen.

PRO

It comes with a milk frother, for easy preparation to make your Cappuccinos and Lattes.

CON

It might be confusing if you are not used to using something like this. But there is an instructional manual for easy step by step instructions and believe me it isn’t as hard as it may appear.

CON

The pods might seem like an inconvenience to order but they offer free samples with purchase to try flavours out and see which ones you want to have on hand for yourself.

PRO

Available in a variety of colours and finishes. 13 colours to be exact. So, you will find something that fits your personal style at an ease with a convenient photos online.

CON

This is a general thing, but the price is a big thing. It isn’t exactly cheap but for what you get it is so worth the price. Right now, it is on sale so make sure to take advantage of sales any chance you get.

FINAL SAY

I defiantly think the pros outweigh the cons from personal experience as I tested this myself and I can tell you it has changed my coffee drinking game. I feel like my own personal coffee barista when I wake up in the morning to early weekend days after brunch. I can make myself and enjoy a lovely cup of caramel expresso since I love my hot coffee strong. Lattes are fabulous but expresso gets the job done.

I highly recommend this product and hope can get a chance to try it out for yourself.

Stylish Anti It Bag Trend

A few weeks ago, I found myself browsing through a very chic antique shop when I saw this elegant older woman walk in-a typical off-duty casual look, she embodied a confident city lady. She dawned a Moncler puffer coat, sensible light-wash jeans, and simple Stan Smith trainers. Her bag was fantastic, though unrecognisable it stole the show. It wasn’t covered in a monogram not a tiny logo (as far as I could see). It was brown, square, and discreet. But this intriguing anonymous medium-size piece was of obvious stellar quality: thick leather, a sturdy shape, and over-the-shoulder practical. Upon a second glance, I realized it was a Tod’s bag with a vintage veneer. It was almost nondescript, yet it was the most impactful purse I’ve seen in quite some time.

A bag as one of the most important accessories, has the power to uplift, elevate, and pull together an outfit. It’s a timeless symbol, whether you are an exec hauling a Saint Laurent Sac De Jour, a stylish fashion girl parading a Celine Satchel Tote, or a vintage lover clutching a classic Prada Tote. The visible everyday use combined with the knowledge of how much that bag must cost speaks volumes about how a minimalist investment conscious person approaches fashion. 

More powerful than the purses I mentioned above are the anonymous and well-made ones. When you look at a casual looking designer bag, some people turn to the Louis Vuitton Neverful which comes in a variety of sizes. The monogram is recognizable and defiantly lacks anonymity. This could be the same for the classic Chanel Flap bag which comes in many leathers, colours, and designs. As classic as this piece is known to the fashion world, it still has a logo. Maybe not as massive, but it is still present.

When it comes to describing the anti-it bags, it goes without saying. A bag that has quality craftsmanship, sustainable hardware, or strap, and well-crafted in beauty is the unexpected. 

One may wish for the perfect shoulder bag, great drop, excellent shape, and the perfect depth so you don’t have to limit what you can fit inside and be able to be dressed up and down for all occasions. This may seem like a tall order, but you can find this exact design by looking on the vintage market. 

I have a few lovely examples of anonymous anti-it bags to wear this season and always look put together.

The best thing about autumn, is the feel of the crisp air that seems to kiss your face as you seamlessly walk out the door. I live for the roasted creamy warm inviting lattes and soft rich desserts that just make me so excited that fall is here. It may seem like summer came and went, but this year the autumn styles are flooding the store window displays in such an energetic way. I love nothing better than seeing the new styles not just in the stores but overlapped on some chic people. I don’t know about you, but I love nothing than to style watch. It gives you a much-needed sense of what someone’s personality is like, and you get to see some trendy impressive outfits.

Controversy Over The Chanel 22 Bag

What is it about a brand-new bag? We get so excited that the idea of a complementing accessory for our wardrobes just seems ideal. Well, you would think this would be the case for a new bag from Chanel. But it seems rather this bag is getting more controversial recently.

Designers come out with new styles all the time; I mean that is what fashion is all about being forward thinking. Maybe even nostalgic, but it seems when it comes to the Chanel 22 bag it is anything but. So, what exactly is the hype about this bag? I will tell you in this mini list below.

This might sound a bit harsh, but according to online comments a lot of people have been stressing this statement. Personally, I think it just has a casual dressy feel, without causing any fuss and is ideal for any occasion.

         If it is the new "IT BAG" count me out

Apparently, a bag highlighted across social media made a lot of people angry. I personally can’t understand why? I mean it’s a bag not something scary. Even when a bag becomes popular, it doesn’t mean you should disown it for life. 
        
         It looks cheap

I can understand the thought behind that. If you compare the quality of designer bags in general, you will see they have significantly gotten worse in quality. It is another reason why vintage seems to be the golden standard. Normally, people will notice the leather being much thinner, the hardware seeming more flimsy.    

 

        Mixing retro and modern looks basic

They can’t be more wrong in their thoughts here. So apparently people were frowning on the idea that this bag looks retro and modern, but mixing this style just isn’t for them. I personally, love the idea of rocking vintage and modern elements together. It gives a fresh perspective to a classic design.


The Outrageous Price
 


Chanel as a fashion house is known for raising their prices, and when it comes to the Chanel 22 bag it isn’t immune. The best way around this is to try the preloved market. They have in-house authenticators, and you can trust that everything on their site is authentic.

I have sold and shopped with them myself and I can honestly say they are worth it to consider. When you shop with them, you can get your hands on bags that are in such incredible shape that they don’t even look used. The two on the market that I completely trust are, The Real Real & Fashionphile and they ship internationally.
