Summer colds are such a drag. When you just feel all clogged up, it helps to have a warm drink. It warms you up and helps soothe your frazzled nerves.
Though you can’t go to a cafe yourself (please don’t spread the virus!) you can always make great coffee at home. Now is the time to have a little fun to your brew and perk up your spirits. It is really easy! If you’re feeling too lousy to get out of bed, now is the time to ask very sweetly for your other half’s generosity. A good way to enjoy pampering.
