There is no doubt that coffee is a major part in most of our everyday lives. On average, coffee drinkers have 3.1 cups a day, and have countless different preferences for their cups o' joe. (I'll be honest: I basically enjoy drinking milk and caramel syrup with a hint of that bitter coffee flavor.)

Whether you rely on this liquid gold to get you through the day or you just enjoy the earthy smell and barista calling out orders in the background, coffee affects us every day, so let's get into the science!

How Coffee Works

Caffeine, a bitter, crystalline alkaloid, holds the title of the major active compound in coffee. Its structure is similar to adenosine, which is a molecule that builds up throughout the day to make you feel sleepy. The caffeine in your coffee binds to adenosine receptors in the brain and blocks the adenosine from binding so you don't get that sleepy feeling. 

Basically, adenosine is the angel on your shoulder saying "let's go to sleep so tomorrow we'll wake up with glowing skin and increased alertness during our 6 am workout!" On the other hand, caffeine is the evil twin saying "SLEEP IS FOR THE WEAK! You've been writing this essay for the past 15 hours but you feel fine! You definitely have enough energy to look up videos of sea bunniesand the heights of your favorite celebrities." 

The temporary effects of coffee include improved memory, sharper vision from dilated pupils, increased digestion due to increased acid levels in the stomach, and of course, a good mood from the release of dopamine in the brain.

"Nitro coffee" is becoming a big trend for those of you coffee experimenters. Some brewers infuse nitrogen into coffee to create a richer and creamier flavor from the sharp tasting bubbles. It's truly a new experience for both taste and texture, and it may even allow you to in take more coffee in a cup because it allows higher coffee-to-water ratios. Plus, it has a pretty ombré effect that will inspire hair colorists everywhere.

So now that you are more informed about one of the world's favorite drinks, let's get into the outfits to wear while sipping your favorite brew!

This outfit is for the no-fuss girl grabbing an iced coffee before running errands on the weekend. It features a loose, striped button-up paired with some ripped white jeans for a laid-back yet put-together look. 

Accessorize with a statement necklace to dress up the look slightly, and sling a leather bucket bag over your shoulder to carry what you need for the day. Finally, slip on comfy canvas shoes, and tie your hair back in a messy bun to keep your hair out of your face while you are running around town!

The Best Bags of Milan Fashion Week Spring 2014


MaxMara Spring 2014 Handbag

Usually, I can count on Italy to give me at least one collection of Fashion handbags per season that hits me right in the heart. The Italians know their leather, and their Fashion Week is stocked with brands as well known for their Fashion bags as they are for anything. This time around, though, Milan Fashion Week Spring 2014 felt at times more like it was revisiting its greatest hits than charting new territory. I saw some new versions of existing bags that I loved, but I never got that new thing that flooded my brain with serotonin.

That’s not to say that there weren’t some accessories highlights – in fact, they were abundant. The new versions of the Fendi 2Jours were excellent, and the Prada face-painted bags are sure to become collectors’ items. Beyond that, there were lovely exotics in light colors galore, from Ferragamo to Versace. Even if the season wasn’t fully satisfying, there was plenty to love. Check out our picks for the best of the season below.
