Ye Olde Toffee Nut Frappuccino

Every December, I see to it that I visit a Starbucks store to order my favorite Toffee Nut Frappuccino. Last year while I was having a cup, I told myself that I would dedicate a post to it once a year. It is my favorite beverage of all. I crave for it the whole year ‘round. 

This 2013, I went to Starbucks Glorietta. And yes, being in Makati, they didn't use plastic cups as it was prohibited. So no snowflake printed plastic cups this time. 

As usual, I had my customized Toffee Nut Frappuccino with Java Chips and extra Chocolate Drizzle. Yum! I usually order it Grande size but this year, I only got the Tall size. Woah! Talk about price inflation. The whole thing costs PhP200 now. When before, it was PhP170 for the Grande. Woosh!


My Toffee Nut is different from the normal Toffee Nut.  The java chips give the beverage that extra caffeine buzz. The chocolate drizzle gives it that slightly bitter aftertaste which complements the sweetness of the toffee nut syrup. When mixed together with the whipped cream everything comes together in a delightful blend of caffeine, sugar, and cream. Finally, you gotta love the nut sprinkles. They’re small, yet they stand out in the drink.

I really like the Christmas theme this year: Artistry meets Merriment. Wow! Very creative! 


Artistry Meets Merriment. Wonderful.
There is one thing I know for sure: each Starbucks cup is a work of art, very unique, and handcrafted. By they way, I have tried out the Gingerbread Latte yet. Oh this means, going back for more! Hehehee~

Hi Jillian :) yep, Orange Mocha was available for a limited time here in my country at some point. I liked it hot because the orange flavor came out strong. I do hope it will be available again. I really miss it

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain
