I’m excited to team up with HP to share the new HP x360 laptop with you guys. HP is bending the rules with this bad boy and the lightweight laptop can be used four ways – traditional laptop, tablet, tent and stand.  I wanted to share the capabilities of this device with my favorite computer accessory… coffee!

I’m sharing my four favorite coffee recipes (as of late), kicking it off with a traditional latte and the traditional laptop. We’re still working on mastering our latte art, so we’re gonna need some time on that one. Don’t judge, we tried. When I actually get up when my alarm goes off (realistically 1-2x a week), I love to sit on our patio with Bailey and a hot cup of coffee.  I’ll share my blog post of the day on social media and catch up on emails.  I love that quiet morning time so much, you would think this would be more motivation to get out of bed.

I’ve shared a frappuccino recipe here, but this Caramel Frappé is like dessert. When our last apartment didn’t have air conditioning (and I was unemployed for a relaxing two months) icy cold morning frappuccinos were my go-to. My tip: use leftover coffee to make coffee ice cubes rather than using regular ice.

These days, this drink is more of a dessert, which pairs perfectly with the x360 used as a tent to catch up on my favorite shows (usually Girls).

I recently saw this iced Mint Mojito Iced Coffee here, and I was all MUST MAKE IMMEDIATELY.  This refreshing drink does not disappoint and is a great recipe for those weekend mornings when you have a little bit more time on your hands to take your coffee to the next level.

A perfect sip to go along with perusing the web and catch up on all the blogs I follow using my x360 as a tablet.

When I need an extra hitch in my giddy up (yes I just said that, I am from Mississippi y’all), espresso is my caffeine of choice.  I will pour espresso over ice cubes and top it off with some white mocha syrup.  As the ice melts and slightly dilutes the espresso, it’s still delicious to sip on all morning.  A great morning drink on the go!

Sidenote – having dual monitors is my work addiction.  Once you start working on two monitors, you can never go back.  It’s full-on #firstworldproblems.  With the x360, it’s so easy to use the laptop as a stand on my desk for an extra screen.

To add to the fun, HP is going on the road with Meghan Trainor to cover her That Bass tour this month and next month.  Follow along here!

What’s your favorite coffee drink? And I’m not talkin’ a regular cup of jo.  Let’s get creative here!  Thanks so much for reading and sharing – XO –

Thank you to HP for sponsoring this post.  As always, all opinions are my own!
