Welcome to the year where I bring back some blog favourites! Like my "coffee" series. Last year I wrote a mixd review about one particular coffee spot that I visited and when I re-read the post...I mentioned that I wasn't going to be visiting this location ever again. Maybe it was fate that told me to step into another Gregorys but here I am again ( I am currently writing this post in Gregorys ) for the 3rd week! I visited their new location on Connecticut Avenue 3 weeks ago because well it was the closest coffee spot to the H&M and I had a really big bag of clothing. I know that I have already written a post about Gregorys but I felt the need to write another one...or rather an updated one.

The first time I visited this location ( they have only been open for a few months now ) I was greeted by Juan ( Won ) and Alex. Now, because I have working in customer service from since I was 15 years old...I can proudly say that I know great customer service when I see it. That is the first thing I look for when I am visiting a new place ( coffee, clothing or a restaurant ). Like I was saying...I was immediately greeted by not one but 2 smiling faces. Alex and Juan. They are the main reason why I keep coming back to Gregorys if I am completely honest...well them and the coffee.

The first coffee I tried was called 'Hall&Oats' which is a Cold Brew with Oat Milk, Cinnamon and Vanilla. It was super delicious. It was the first time that I tried a Cold Brew that I actually liked. Slightly bitter but nothing a little simple syrup cannot fix...& by little I mean a lot. I just love sweet coffee. The second coffee is called 'Honey Badger' and I am currently drinking it right now. It's also a Cold Brew with Almond Milk and Honey. It tastes like heaven in a cup. Seriously..it's sooooooo bloody good! Hence why I am drinking it for a second time back to back. Alex did recommend their 'Nu Brew' which is another Cold Brew but this time it has Nutella and Milk. I have yet to try that one because I am lactose and I didn't want to hurt my stomach....I would try it with a different milk but not sure how any other milk would taste with Nutella...you know?

I feel bad because I haven't been back to Compass Coffee since returning from San Diego but alot of the baristas I loved that worked there currently don't work there anymore and I normally continue visiting the same spot when I vibe with the baristas.

I know that I could always befriend them but it's always good to find new places to call home as well. So, that's kinda what I did & I am glad that I did because I just love the atmosphere that they create in Gregorys. They took the time out to ask my name & remember my name...which makes me feel hella special.

Overall, I am definitely making this Gregorys one of my go to coffee locations for sure!! Let's see what content I can create there!!


I am bringing back "Beauty Tuesdays". I swear every time I sit down and open my laptop...I just seem to always forget to write a blog post for you guys. Can you guys believe that this is my very first "Beauty Tuesdays" post for the year!? How exciting! I do have a lot of blog posts coming your way...if someone wants to come and help me write them then I would love you forever and pay you in coffee!

I had the opportunity to try Revlon's new Photoready Candid Foundation, Concealer and Setting Powder. To be honest, I only use 2 out of the 3 products on a daily so it was a struggle with the Setting Powder if I am completely honest. I normally go for a more natural look..so I don't overdo it with the amount of products that I use!

With that being said...let's just jump right into the review. First up will obviously be the Foundation. The description says that it's a skin enhancing foundation with a natural flawless finish. It has around 31 shade options to choose from which is great because sometimes companies don't cater to darker tones right away so that was a plus in my book. You can purchase the Candid line from Ulta, Target or Amazon and for $10...it's totally a steal! I picked shade Cocoa ( 520 ) and so far I actually like it. I don't want to say love yet because I haven't been using it for that long but so far...I definitely recommend.

Next up is the Antioxidant Concealer. Ultra blendable, buildable and infused with caffeine for a bit of a pick me up. When I read the description..I was kinda like uhhh but then I tried it. I don't think that I was sent the right concealer because I looked like a backwards raccoon. Which didn't sit to well with me so I think that I will refrain from writing a review until I get the proper shade.

Last but not least is the Anti-Pollution Setting Powder. It's a silky smooth, loose setting powder that gives an airbrushed effect. I am a very simple person and with that my makeup tends to be simple as well. I have heard of setting powder but I am way to afraid to try it out. This is definitely where youtube videos come in handy because I am lost. On the bright side...it is very affordable so you wont be breaking the bank which is always a plus.

Overall I would give their new line 8/10. I do love the foundation and I find myself reaching for it now in the winter months than any of my other foundations. As for the concealer...I am going to go to my local Target to purchase the correct shade.
