Say hello to Sipping Coffee.

Say hello to Sipping Coffee
Hello and a great big massive welcome to you, who have stumbled upon my humble abode.

Sipping-Coffee, what a bloody struggle it was to get here, but we're here. 

So I should probably introduce myself, I'm Angelika (yes, it is pronounced like the one from the Rugrats, minus her tyrannical nature, though mother may disagree). You might also know me as angelikablogs, but that's the book I've decided to re-write. And this is the new book. 


For years I have struggled with my blog. It was me all the time, I was honest, but it never felt quite right (if you stick around, in the next couple of weeks I will publishing a post on 5 tips to overcome blogger identity crisis, and you can stay updated on the twitter). I couldn't figure out what was wrong, until I realised that the space doesn't reflect me in the slightest. Overtime I tried to put it back on track and I failed, miserably. It's like playing a game of snakes and ladders, but landing on the head of the snake every.damn.time. 

But tell me this, for someone who has never been in love, is it the excitement, the racing of the heart, or the lust to caress her body first thing in the morning? Could it be the feeling of the blood rushing through your flesh at the thought of her, and the smile on your face at the sight of her? You miss her when she's out of reach, and though she's not around, she never quite leaves your mind. Am I close? Because by her I mean this blog. And by body I mean my Canon 600D. I'm excited! 

Now let me tell you why we're here and not over at angelikablogs. Ew, I literally cringe every time I say that, you know that e-mail you've created when you were 10? That's what it makes me feel like. It just feels timid, shy, cute and nothing like me, despite it literally having my name on it.

All the while angelikablogs was alive, I felt like a yoyo. Back and forth, frantically trying to figure out what was wrong. I made excuses, I had a shitty year last year, I didn't have lighting or time. But no reason was quite 'reason' enough because upon acquiring and fixing all possible excuses there was no progress. Angelikablogs was a dead end. I had content lined up to be published that I could never actually publish, as if I was saving it for something. And then I realised that no amount of motivation, photos, content or love will make that space quite my own. I wasn't loving it. I always had the ick (this one was for all my fellow love to hate, hate to love, love islanders).

Now that I have created sipping-coffee (or sippingcoffee_ on social media), I feel like I fell in love with my space. I feel like I can be honest, real but most importantly unfiltered. Because hey, your girl over here swears, she's not cutesy and sort of an organised chaos majority of the time. Heres to the girls who just can't get their shit together.

p.s nothing wrong with shy and timid, but it's just not me. 

Lots of love
a. xoxo
