My Starbucks Addiction

I love Starbucks…maybe a little too much. And to add to my addiction, the building I intern at has a Starbucks in the lobby.

I have a few drinks that I love to order, and they change depending on the season and my mood. I thought it’d be fun to share them with you! They are pretty simple. You won’t hear me saying “three pumps” or “no foam” or anything crazy like that.

  • A pick me up that’s not coffee: chai tea latte with skim milk. Sometimes I like to drink something
warm, but I usually can’t drink coffee after 11 a.m. or I’ll be up all night.
  • A fall beverage with whipped cream: caramel apple spice. It’s so yummy. I’m not a PSL girl.
  • My favorite holiday beverage: caramel brûlée latte with skim milk and no whipped cream. Can it
be November so I can have one of these?
  • Something refreshing: green tea lemonade sweetened. Mmmm.
  • My summer time caffeinated beverage: iced coffee with skim milk, sweetened. I crave these even when it’s
10 degrees outside.
  • Plain old coffee: Blonde roast with room for cream and sugar. I can’t drink black
coffee. Yuck.

What’s your favorite Starbucks drink? I’d love to
know! And if you’re on the hunt for a cute coffee mug, check out my picks
below. Close to my Starbucks addiction is my coffee mug addiction. Target and
Kate Spade are definitely one of the cutest places to get mugs. I use this Kate Spade striped travel mug often.

    We have a lot of the same faves! I love chai and don't go ga-ga for pumpkin spice either. My absolute favorite just came back – the caramel flan latte! I love the caramel brulee too, but I think I'd have to give my seasonal love to the chestnut praline latte they came out with this past year. And although I drink it, I don't blame you with the black coffee thing – it's an acquired taste!

      I commend you for being able to drink black coffee. It wouldn't definitely make my life easier. Thanks for stopping by!

      I personally think coffee tastes better when it comes in a cute mug. Thanks for reading!

    I love iced coffee with skim milk from Starbucks. A bit bitter but super tasty! I also want that "A Yawn Is a Silent Scream for Coffee" mug because it totally describes me 🙂

    I may need to hhuve the green tea lemonade a try! I don't like coffee so my main addiction with starbucks is to the classic hot chocolate and chocolate frapuccino, they are both amazing and obviously sorts me out for th cold and warm seasons! 🙂
