My fall/winter goal is to find and buy every single vintage Kaftan I can in preparation for next summer. I just love them and need more! I predict these will be one of the go to tops/dresses to wear next year for sure!!! Or at least for me, outside in my backyard, every, single, week end!!
Starbucks has unveiled a new drink that is suppose to blow Pumpkin Spice Latte out of it’s container!! :). It’s a called the Chile Mocha, made up of chocolate and spice and everything nice.
It makes me think of, years ago, as a Christmas Promotion at a Spa I was going to offered a spicy hot chocolate as a treat to sip on during your appointment. I thought is was going to be store bought boring hot chocolate with chilli powder added but whatever I tried it. Anyway, when my esthetician brought it to me in an espresso sized cup, I wasn’t sure why they were so cheap, I mean you can buy that stuff by the tub, literally. I looked at it and saw it was thicker than I expected. The more I looked at it the more I could see that it was REAL melted chocolate and I could smell the spicy-ness in it. It was magical velvet going down my thoart. I closed my eyes and savoured every, single sip. Every Christmas since, I still think about it and always say I will try and make it myself but never do.... Maybe this year.........
I am sure the Starbucks version will be comparable, or at least a little bit so I can day dream again about that small ouce of heaven I had many moons ago.
Fall is in the air and you know what that means, stews, I love all different types and can’t wait to try this one soon.
Great Article posted on Mothermag.com (amazing blog/magazine btw) about how telling kids they can do anything isn’t good. Instead, you should teach them the three P’s; Practice, Patience and Perseverance . Here is the link.
Movement makes people happy, I mean if a skeptical professor from the University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute can make a change to exercise to have better mood daily I think I can. Here is the link to the article.
Enjoy your week end everybody!
