How to Starbucks

I know what you're probably thinking. 
How to Starbucks? What does she even mean?
or something more along the lines of 
HA please. I am the Starbucks queen. Hima is a mere peasant
I've come to tell you a secret that will change your life. 
We all know that Starbucks between the beginning of November and the end of January is the best time ever. I mean, it's the return of the red cups!

pair it with a good book like Divergent, and you're golden!

Also, we all know that Skinny Peppermint Mochas are where it's at, right? More of a Gingerbread Latte person? Or the straight "I need my coffee just give it to me?"
Me? SPM. (I don't know if that's a thing, but PSL is, so SPM is now too!)

Red cups are great, but I've just discovered the secret to an amazing Starbucks experience. Ask for your drink "for here." 
Happiness will ensue. 

(Yes I know it's a terrible photo, but it's the best I've got. Thanks Sneha!)

Good god, that looks amazing. 

Moral of the story: Always ask for your drink "for here." Let me know how that works out for you!

  1. Divergent. Really, really want to hear what you think of that book. My cousins were talking about how wonderful it was. This girl, is seriously contemplating adding it to my read list. xoxo

  2. I love coffee shops that have actual mugs... makes it so much better!

  3. that does look really good! ya know, i've never been that into starbucks, but lately i can't get enough of it!!
    stopping by from meet & greet hop! new follower on GFC & bloglovin!

  4. Welcome to the swap! We're glad you joined up! And great tip about asking for drinks "for here". A steaming hot mug and a great book is the BEST combo. :)

  5. I definitely admit that I am no Starbucks expert. I go to Biggby...I don't even know if that's a widespread chain but it's all over michigan, their hot chocolate is superior to Starbucks. :P


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! You probably just made my day :) I do my best to reply to every single one, even if it takes a little while. Make sure you're not a no-reply blogger so we don't get deprived of a wonderful conversation!
