Name: Patty J


Hometown: Born and raised on the West Side of Providence, RI

Theme Song: Do I have to choose just one?  How about I'm Still Standing by Sir Elton John, Survivor by Destiny's Child, I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor...And anything by my crush since I was 5 years old, Sir Paul McCartney. (In the not too distant past, I also thought David Letterman was dreamy. Don't judge me.)

Coffee or Tea: Coffee, but it has to be ahhh-mazing!

Favorite Place for Coffee: I usually start the day with a Starbucks' latte (or two), but have also been known to frequent dozens of other bistros, diners, cafes, coffee shops, eateries, and restaurants around Rhode Island in search of that perfect cuppa java. #LifeIsBetterWithLotsOfCoffee

Who or What Are Your Inspirations: It's all here on, a lifestyle blog. For more of my recent favs and finds in Rhode Island and beyond, look for the pages on Facebook and Instagram
