52 Things I Love About You

I Love You…and Coffee

Nothing says “I love you” like not using a million of those cardboard sleeves for your to-go coffee. Of course, using a travel mug is better for the planet, yet an unexpected stop for coffee can leave you cup-less. An easily-carried and adorable coffee sleeve can at least save you from using a disposable sleeve. Simply, buy a wonderfully hideous sweater at the thrift store and cut off the cuffs. Embellish with buttons, ribbon or charms and you’ve got yourself quite a delightful java accessory. thatswhatchesaid.net
