#CoffeeAndPins, Vol. 1

It’s no secret that I love coffee, more specifically a vanilla latte from Starbucks. Pretty basic, I know, but that’s my morning pick-me-up.

At the end of September, Lantern Pins shared an absolutely adorable picture of a coffee cup, transformed into mega cuteness by the addition of one of their pins. It made me think, why am I not sporting my favorite flair on my daily latte splurge? And voilà! #CoffeeAndPins began!

My go-to pin is my Jurassic Park Clever Girl pin! So obviously it was my first choice. And come on, who wouldn’t want to buy a coffee if this was the cup?!


I challenged some of my favorite geeky ladies to the challenge, and man did their #CoffeeAndPins photos impress.

@gmscho showed off her love of all things Disney with her animated Cinderella pin. (Visit her Instagram post to see it in action!)

@OneTinyDinosaur shared some moody Death Eater and Bride of Frankenstein cups. (Check out more of her visual diary on her blog, One Tiny Dinosaur.)

@JustLikeGilmoreGirls shared a kitty-licious cup, and her cat literally couldn’t keep her paws off of it!

@GirlietoNerdy got me extra excited for The Last Jedi with her adorable Porg pin and cup! (Find more of her awesome content on her blog, From Girlie to Nerdy.)

      It’s so good, and I’m not adventurous enough to try new flavors when I know I love it!

    This is a super cool idea!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I haven’t been in a Starbucks in a while since there’re tons of cute coffee shops in Brighton, but I can make an exception :p This is way too cool.

      Feel free to use any coffee cup! It doesn’t have to be from Starbucks. πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to see yours!!
