Cubed: DIY Coffee Cubes For Instant Iced Coffee

CUBED Miss Kris Iced Coffee DIYNow that Starbucks red cup season is behind us and my pumpkin spice latte is officially off the menu, it’s time to return to my regularly scheduled caffeine programming. Forget what the fashion mags are telling you, in LA fresh brew in a go cup is the number one accessory of the Spring/Summer season. I’m totally guilty! It’s rare that you’ll catch me out and about during the day without an iced coffee in hand. Although, to save me from making multiple daily trips to the brew house (Hi! My name is Kristen and I’m a coffee addict) I’m freezing a few coffee cubes so that I can quickly make iced coffees on the go in the comfort of my own kitchen. Here’s how…

Mugshot: DIY Sharpie Lips Mug

Miss Kris Sharpie Lips Mug Valentines Glitter N GlueI just love those mugs with the mustaches and lips on them. I just think they’re super cute. I often come across them at my dollar store (here), but if you have a sharpie on your desk, a white coffee mug in your cabinet and 6 extra minutes, they’re easy to create. They also make fun gifts! This a little something to keep in mind with Valentine’s Day around the corner.

DIY: Reusable Coffee Cup Sleeve

Glitter 'N Glue DIY Glitter Coffee SleeveHi my name is Kristen and I’m a coffee addict. I started as a social drinker who only drank occasionally but now I can’t seem to function in the morning without a fresh cup of brew.  I frequent my local Starbucks so much that the staff considers me a regular and they’re all familiar with my order. Overtime I’ve seem to have collected an obscene amount of Starbucks cups and sleeves.  I thought it was time that I not only give my cup a new look but create a reusable coffee cup sleeve. Just because I have an addiction does not mean I’m not a socially conscious individual. Save a tree, use a glitter reusable coffee sleeve!
