My name is Lulu and I’m the girl behind the camera of Musings over Mochas. I started blogging almost a year ago (hard to believe!) as a way to challenge myself to get out and explore my city. Since then, I’ve taken my love for mochas to Los Angeles, Portland, Atlanta, London, and Paris. When I’m not drinking mochas, you’ll most likely find me cuddled with my cat, drinking a gin + tonic, or watching Grey’s Anatomy. (In a perfect world, all three of these things are happening.)

What is your favorite thing about blogging?
The best part about blogging is having a reason to take pictures of things I would normally deem as not picture-worthy. When I look back on my Instagram and blog, I can pinpoint exactly what was happening in my life at that time– which has been really fun. I also started Musings over Mochas because I was losing my love for my city, Washington, DC. To combat this, I decided that once a week I’d find a new coffee shop to try. In doing that, a whole new world opened up to me as I began to discover new areas, connect with exciting people, and learn a thing or two about coffee. It’s the best thing that could have ever happened to me, as my perspective on life was changed by opening my eyes to savor the small things.

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been “that girl” photographing her food for two minutes before taking a bite, I would be able to buy all the mochas in the world! There’s some outside judgement you have to get over you’re constantly taking photos, but I also have comes to terms with the fact only 60% of the photos I take are usable. This has been tough! But over time, it’s helped me realize how important it is to do things for yourself and realize random people’s opinions of you do not matter.

If you had to eat only one food for an entire year, what would it be?
I recently moved to Paris and I’ve started a morning ritual of enjoying a pain au chocolat and croissant from my local boulangerie. I don’t see myself giving it up any time soon, so if I were forced to only have one thing, it would easily be that.

If you could have any super power, what would it be?
As silly as it sounds, I’m serious about my food. So if I could have any super power, it would be the ability to taste something before buying it to know if it’s worth it or not. Weird, I know. But it would probably save me a lot of money and frustration!
