Starbucks Cloud Macchiato Review

Hi Everyone!

I thought I’d start this week off by giving you a review on the new Starbucks drink!

Starbucks just released a new Cloud Macchiato not too long ago.

It comes in the Carmel Cloud Macchiato and Cinnamon Cloud Macchiato. You can also get it either hot or cold!

What is it?

The Carmel Cloud Macchiato: 

  • Vanilla Syrup
  • Espresso Shots
  • Cold Foam (made out of their new cloud powder (which contains eggs) , 2%, & vanilla whipped together in a special blender)
  • Topped with carmel drizzle

Here are the nutrotional facts!

The Cinnamon Cloud Macchiato: 

  • Cinnamon Dolce Syrup
  • Cold Foam (made out of their new cloud powder (which contains eggs) 2%, & vanilla whipped together in a special blender)
  • Espresso Shots
  • Topped with cinammon dolce powder & carmel drizzle

Here are the nutritional facts!

What I got

I got the standard Iced Carmel Cloud Macchiato. It cames with one of those sippy lids which I love!

Disclaimer** I hate foam, so I was very hesitant to even try this since I wanted to give an unbiased review, so I figured you should know that.

It comes with the shots on the bottom and a whole lot of the cold foam on top.

When you take the first sip, chances are you’re going to get a sip of the cold foam. It is a thicker foam and it’ very sweet. I didn’t mind it, but it wasn’t my favorite either.

I really started liking it once the espresso mixed with the cold foam.

It actually kinda tastes like a carmel coffee milkshake!

You have to get through some of the cold foam first, but then once it mixes, it started tasting really thick, sweet, and super cold.

I probably would get it again and immediatly mix it instead of waiting and drinking just the cold foam.

Overall Rating: 6/10

Have a good week everyone! If you try it, let me know what you think of it!

Stay curious & kind,

What I Didn’t Give Up

Hi Everyone! Happy Friday and Happy International Women’s Day to all of my beautiful and powerful ladies out there!

For this #feelgoodfriday I decided to talk about what I am doing for Lent this year. I don’t really talk about my religion on my social platforms, and this really isn’t completely about religion either, but I am using Lent and my beliefs to instill something more in my life!

So for Lent you are usually expected to give something up to reflect on what the Lord gave up for us and sacrificed for us during this time. While I was sitting in the pew on Ash Wednesday, still not sure what I was going to give up, I realized something:

Lent is a time for gratitude, reflection, and appreciation. 

So instead of giving up a material item this year, I have decided to instill something instead.

I have decided to instill those things that the church tries to teach us every year during lent: gratitude, reflection, and appreciation.

I have always been a huge fan of self-reflection. Throughout my college years I really started diving into it, but lately it has not been something I have practiced frequently. So for lent, I have decided to start practicing it everyday along with prayer.

Whether you are a believer or not, I feel like self-reflection is so important for growth and learning about the world around you and yourself.

Don’t know where to start? I’ve got you!

Like I have said before, this might not be your thing and I am seriously not all-knowing, this is just what I am doing and I thought maybe this could help you on your journey too!

These are the questions I ask myself everyday now:

  • What am I doing to learn?
  • What am I doing to grow?
  • What am I grateful for?
  • What am I doing for others?
  • What am I doing for myself?

I personally either write in my journal the answers to these questions or I just think about them when I have 5 minutes of free time!

I also made a template for you to keep or share with others as well!

Daily Reflection

 

I hope you have an amazing weekend! Let me know what you think of today’s post! Let’s talk about it!

Stay curious and kind,
