The New Drink that Has Me Excited to Go to Starbucks

Hello Lovely,

I don't know if you've noticed, but internationally, Starbucks has a line of new drinks that's practically breaking the internet. (I"m still waiting to be able to order The Unicorn Frappuccino.) But there's a new drink that has me really excited to go to Starbucks.

The new Horchata Almondmilk Frappuccino® Blended Beverage is every lactose intolerant person's dream! Hands up everyone who hates being charged extra just for soy or almond milk? Starbucks' Horchata Frappuccino this is the first Frappuccino recipe that uses almond milk as the original "milk" ingredient. The best part? While the inspiration for the drink stems from a summer favourite, Starbucks' new Horchata Frappuccino is a permanent menu item.

The coffee giant's newest blended drink, the Horchata Frappuccino, is made with almond milk, cinnamon dolce syrup, coffee and ice. The treat is topped with whipped cream, caramel, and cinnamon and sugar sprinkles

So I'm not sure when this drink will hit us here in The Bahamas, but if it never comes, now that we know what the ingredients are we can just customise our order and have people think we're ordering something from the secret menu.

Pumpkin Frappucino

Happy Monday!

It has finally occurred to me and my wardrobe that we are officially in Fall!

I am so  sorry that I have not been keeping you all up to date with my Outfits of the Day via Instagram.

Besides having spotty WiFi at work (totally fixed now I hope) , I have been seriously spazzing out lately!

My weekends are just so packed I barely have time to actually relax.

One of my closest friends is getting married in two weeks and just had a bridal shower this past, weekend. OMG, don't I feel old! I am now at the appropriate societal age where you're expected to get married or at least have married friends.

Childhood where are you?!

I also went fabric shopping and spent all of yesterday cutting out patterns.

Fash l Art is less than a month away and I still have so much to do!

Speaking of which, I promised I would share the official cast photo with you, so here it is:

 

That's me, bottom left, green dress, sitting down!

(Now before you ask, no I did not make that, and it's actually a lighter green in person. My friendRia Georgina Additionally, my eyebrows aren't that thick at all)

 

I'm learning so much already in this experience and will try my best to document my journey for you all without giving away too much!

So far, it's been pretty stressful (but not in a bad way).

 

So to de-stress, I concocted this delightful little smoothie!

 

Here's how I got to make this.

Every Sunday morning, I make myself a bowl of cereal.

It's a tradition I had with my dad and I still continue it on my own.

I walked into the kitchen and what did I see?

A pot filled with cubed pumpkin, already boiled!

I knew it was meant for Sunday dinner, but I instantly started plotting.

 

I was originally going to make pancakes, but when the laziness kicked in, I decided on a beverage instead. And let me just say, this drink powered me throughout the day!

So much so, I didn't really leave much for my family.

It's just THAT GOOD!!!!!
