Hello, Sunshine! If you’re anything like me, your life is a hectic, super busy, nonstop crazy adventure. My kids are back in school, their activities are in full swing and work is always keeping me on my toes. One thing that hasn’t changed for us is our weather. In fact, it’s still hot and extra humid even though today is the last day of summer.
So I don’t know about you, but my energy levels are pretty much non-existent. I’ve finally completed my 64 hours of continuing education plus three hour exam for my brokers license. Here’s the thing, I couldn’t concentrate for the life of me. Everything was more stimulating than what I was studying. I never had this problem when I was in school – thank goodness! Starbucks has been my saving grace lately. Their grab-and-go drinks are perfect to bring anywhere!
When I was struggling with a mid-afternoon crash while studying I relied on my Starbucks DoubleShot Energy Coffees. I really liked the Spiced Vanilla DoubleShot. It has ginger and chai in it and kind of put me in a pre-fall mood. It picked me up when I needed it the most.
The Mexican Mocha DoubleShot has a sweet chocolate taste that’s kicked up a notch with cinnamon and cayenne. At first I was scared that the cayenne would be too intense, but no! It really excited my taste buds. It definitely gets a thumbs up from me.
So speaking of heat and humidity, it’s almost impossible to cool off. There’s little pockets of cool air in my house that I have to sit in when I get overheated. My cute little desk in our loft is the perfect place for me to sip on a Starbucks Refreshers Revitalizing Energy Drinks and work on my iPad. I LOVE both the Black Cherry Limeade and Peach Passionfruit Refreshers. They’re not overly sweet and offer a unique way to drink coconut water.
When I’m forced to brave the heatwave, I bring my super bright and cute Starbucks Tumbler. Starbucks tumblers are one of my favorite things to collect. The bright yellow, blue and coral colors of my tumbler speak right to me. The brighter, the better in my world. Lulu and I leave at the very last minute before walking to the bus stop to pick up the big kids. Is it iced water in my cold cup tumbler or something else? I’ll never tell. 😉
When I was pregnant with CC, I couldn’t get enough bottled Starbucks Frappuccinos in my life. This may explain why he quickly staked claim on the White Chocolate Mocha Frappucino. All three kids love Frappucinos, so I pre-poured a little bit for each of the girls to enjoy too! You can’t go wrong with a Frappucino.
Cheers to a successful and not so hot fall. Even when the temperatures stop to drop, Starbucks DoubleShot Energy Coffees, Refreshers Revitalizing Energy Drinks, Frappucinos and Tumblers are perfect for any type of season.
And don’t forget, but first, coffee!
Thank you Starbucks for sponsoring todays conversation!
