Welcome to coffee spoons, a place where I like to share my life. I am an American ex-pat working in rural Scotland, where I live with my husband. I was raised in the city but I'm a country girl at heart.

This blog is a place for girls who love looking natural but aren't afraid of a bold lip; for women who believe that intelligence isn't compromised by femininity; for lovers of literature and countryside and coffee and cozy sweaters.

You'll find totally honest posts about makeup, style (style-wise, I am a cross between a wanna-be Audrey Hepburn and the Little House on the Prairie), skincare, and our life here in Scotland. The title of this blog comes from my favorite poem, T.S. Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock":

"For I have known them all already, known them all:
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons"
