Starbucks is almost every girl’s go-to happy place.  Whether you’re a coffee drinker or just like a good atmosphere to work on homework, most of us can find ourselves going to Starbucks on a regular basis!  If you’ve heard of the Starbucks secret menu, then you know their drinks can get even better than what’s offered on the actual menu.  Here are some new, fun additions you should know about!

  • Strawberry Acai Refresher with Coconut Milk. Chelsea Crockett - Starbucks Drink These are so yummy and they make for a great Instagram, too!  They taste kind of like a smoothie and are perfect for a warm day outside.  Starbucks even adds some strawberries to your drink!
  • Dragon Frappuccino.  Similar to the new Unicorn Frappuccino, this drink is said to be created through a mixture of a green tea Frappuccino, vanilla bean powder, and a berry swirl.  It looks and tastes great!
  • Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher with Soy Milk.  This is along the same lines as the first drink I mentioned, but it’s purple instead like the picture on the right.  It’s refreshing and delicious!
  • Butter Beer Frappuccino.  If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’re probably thinking, “WHAAAT!?”  This actually exists!  All you have to ask for is a Crème Frappuccino with three pumps of caramel syrup, three pumps of toffee nut syrup, and some caramel drizzle on top to finish it off.

Do you know any secret drinks I’m missing out on?  Let me know and I’ll try them out for myself!

Along with the leaves changing and bonfire weather slowly approaching, there’s nothing I love more about this season than all of the pumpkin spice food and products.  Besides Starbuck’s famous pumpkin spice latte, there is so much more to the pumpkin spice world that people don’t even know about!

  • Pumpkin spice gum.  Trident Layers and Extra both offer the pumpkin spice flavor!  You can get it at Target, Walgreens, or basically anywhere once fall is in full swing.Chelsea Crockett - Pumpkin Spice Bath Bomb
  • Pumpkin spice bath bombs.  Yes, these exist!  There are so many DIY recipes that teach you how to make them yourself like the picture on the right.  Nothing like pouring a hot bath and being surrounded with the pumpkin spice scent!
  • Burt’s Bees pumpkin spice chapstick.  I love Burt’s Bees products.  I always feel like I’m getting my money’s worth because their products work so well.  And now that they sell pumpkin spice chapstick, I love them even more!
  • Pumpkin spice candles.  I love lighting candles in my room when I’m doing homework or editing videos.  So during fall, I love filling my room with the smell of pumpkin spice.
  • Pumpkin spice coffee creamer.  Instead of going to Starbucks every day, purchase some flavored coffee creamer to make your own pumpkin spice latte!

If you love pumpkin spice as much as I do, I hope you love these products, as well!

Love, Chelsea

Easiest Starbucks Drinks to Make at Home

Mmmmmm, Starbucks. Who doesn’t love picking up an iced coffee or a cool lime refresher during the hot summer days? Unfortunately, sometimes we don’t have the time, or the money, to go to an actual Starbucks… but a few of the drinks you can simply make right in your kitchen!

  • Green Tea Lemonade. This drink is simply what it says it is. I like my drinks sweet so, I sweeten my green tea instead of leaving it unsweetened. You can use any green tea and your favorite lemonade and mix it together! SO easy, right?Chelsea Crockett - Green Tea Lemonade
  • Cool Lime Refresher. I LOVE Starbucks’ refreshers. They’re absolutely delicious… and obviously refreshing! The cool lime drink is the easiest one to make, you only need mint leaves, chopped cucumber, water, and sugar. You may need a few other ingredients depending on which recipe you use online, but most are pretty much as simple as that!
  • Frappuccino. Depending on which flavor of coffee you want, you’ll have to look up the recipe. But most of the Frappuccino recipes call for strong coffee, sweetener, milk, ice cubes, and whipped cream! You can add chocolate or caramel syrup, or whatever else you prefer.

What’s your favorite Starbucks drink? Let me know in the comments below, and if you can make it at home, include the recipe :)!

Love, Chelsea

I know plenty of coffee-lovers that look forward to waking up just to get their hands on a good cup!  If you put yourself in this category, this article is for you!  At our house, we buy all kinds of coffees and creamers and experiment with each and every one of them. They’re so good that I thought I’d share with you a few of our faves!Chelsea Crockett - Girl Scout Creamers

Maybe you’d rather grab a Starbucks then make it at home, but it doesn’t have to be that way! Recently, I’ve tried out blueberry flavored coffee. The taste isn’t overbearing but leaves you with a berry aftertaste. Yum! On the other hand, I also like a Nantucket blend with Hershey’s chocolate and caramel creamer.  The choices are endless when buying coffee.  After you pick a couple of flavored coffees, then you’ve got to check out all of the creamers… vanilla/cinnamon, hazelnut, Girl Scout thin mint, Almond Joy…  Whatever flavor you decide upon, you can make it hot or let it cool and add ice.  Either way, it’s fun to explore the world of coffee!

Oh, and the coffee flavor doesn’t end there, it also comes in the form of ice cream, yogurt, and cake!  You can go to the grocery store and bring home some coffee flavored ice cream to try out for yourself. Plus, apart from the amazing taste, coffee can give you a little extra boost to make it through the day.  Tell me about your favorite mix, maybe I’ll give it a try!

Love, Chelsea

Starbucks.

Do I have your attention? I thought I might 😉 Starbucks is one of my passions. The only problem with this is that my wallet does not appreciate my love for this costly coffee. Here is a DIY recipe for the Starbucks Iced Caramel Latte!

Ingredients:

6a011570d5e4a9970c0134898c29db970c

½ cup strongly brewed coffee

1 cup milk

3-4 teaspoons caramel sauce, depending on sweetness preference

6 large ice cubes

 

1. Chill the coffee in your fridge or freezer until it is room temperature. If you want to drink your coffee asap, leave it in the freezer for 15 minutes.

2. Stir the caramel sauce into the milk. Use a whisk to beat the caramel and milk together rapidly until foamy.

3. Pour the caramel milk into the chilled coffee right after you beat it. Add your ice and enjoy!

 

If you speak Starbucks language, this recipe will make you a venti size cup of coffee. Not only is this recipe super easy to do, it is also easy on your wallet. America pretty much runs on coffee, and I am no exception! Whenever I need a little pep in my step, this recipe comes in handy.

 

Enjoy lovely ladies!

XOXO, Chels

Starbucks is one of my favorite things in the entire world.  I’m sure you’ve seen my love for Frappuccinos on my Instagram.  They are my guilty pleasure!  They come in so many tasty flavors, but did you know Starbucks actually has a secret menu?!  It was created by Starbucks fans all around the world and while an employee may not know the exact menu, I will show you how to order off the super-secret Starbucks menu.  Below are some of my favorites, hope you enjoy!Chelsea Crockett- starbucks frappuccinos

If you like candy:

Snickers Frappuccino:  Order the Java Chips Frappuccino with 2 pumps of toffee nut syrup and finish off with caramel drizzle.

Red Starbursts Frappuccino:  Order a blended strawberry lemonade with a scoop of vanilla bean powder and a pump of raspberry syrup.  So yummy!

If you love desserts:

S’mores Frappuccino:  Order a Java Chip or Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino (whatever you prefer), add 1 pump of cinnamon dolce syrup and 1 pump of toffee nut syrup, ask for the whip cream to be blended in, and top with cinnamon dolce sprinkles.  You’ll think you’re eating the real thing!

Nutella Frappuccino:  Order a regular Coffee Frappuccino with 2 pumps of mocha syrup and 1 pump of hazelnut syrup.  Ask for the whip cream to be blended in and top with even more whipped cream.  Delicious!!

Cake Batter Frappuccino:  Order a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino and ask for almond flavoring.  It’s as easy as that!

Now, for my all-time favorite Frappuccino:

Cotton Candy Frappuccino:  Order a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with a pump of raspberry syrup.  I promise, it’s the best ever!

EnjoySmile,

I am a huge Starbucks fan, if you didn’t already know. The only problem with my addiction is that is a costly one! A Passion Tea Lemonade at Starbucks can run you about 4$, which definitely adds up! I found a way to replicate the recipe so that I can save myself some moolah! Here it is:

-Tazo Passion Teashaken-tea

-Lemonade

-Simple Syrup

Boil 13 cups of water. Open your tea box, cut the strings off of the bags, and  plop the bags into your container. When your water comes to a boil, pour it over the tea bags and let it steep 7-10 minutes. Set the pitcher in the fridge and let it cool and leave it overnight. After that long, the tea should be cool enough to start mixing! Grab your cup and fill it ½ way with the tea, and then add lemonade until the cup is ¾ full. Add about 2 tablespoons of simple syrup and give it a good mix. Throw in your ice and you are good to go!

Enjoy, ladies!

XOXO, Chels

Three words: Pumpkin. Spiced. Latte. If these three words are not the definition of fall then I don’t know what is! The only problem with constantly indulging in Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Lattes is that they are a bit on the pricey side, and if you buy them often you will soon find that your wallet is totally and completely empty! I am here to help you save some of that cash! Here is a recipe for a DIY Pumpkin Spiced Latte:

-3/4 cup of milk

Chelsea Croclett

-2-3 tablespoons pumpkin spice syrup

-3/4 cup of coffee

– Whipped cream for topping (optional)

– Pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon for topping (optional)

Combine and enjoy! You can make this in the comfort of your home for super cheap! It is also crazy easy because it only has three ingredients. On the next chilly day, whip one of these up and enjoy! If you want to make a low-fat version of this drink, use skim milk in place of regular milk and skip the whipped cream.

XOXO, Chels
