Starbucks sidenote

I am indeed one of the many mothers that go to Starbucks very often! (Like every day) Today I was surprised to find out that they are testing a new size called the Trenta which is much bigger than the Venti! I usually get an iced soy chai or iced coffee and today I got the larger size to last me a couple extra hours. I am not sure they need this option (or that I needed to know about it!) but it was fun to be a part of something new at one of my favorite places.

P.S. These are some of my favorite drinks...have any of you ever tried one of these?

Apple Soy Chai
Soy Chai with caramel drizzle
Snickers Latte
Iced Coffee (add the coconut creme or french vanilla creamer from the grocery store)
Honey Vanilla Latte
Cinnamon Dolce Frappuccino
Chai Creme Frappuccino
The craziest I have ever gotten: Try at your own risk!! Iced Coffee with 4 SHOTS OF ESPRESSO!!

This elegant and industrious space belongs to Fran├žois Muracciole. The layout of this space immediately inspired me to be more eclectic in how I arrange my furniture. You can see the rest of this space here.

Design Relish: Ryan Korban

Ryan Korban does a beautiful job delivering a space that is so sophisticated yet inviting. The visual statement- dramatic, peaceful, luxurious- is conceived with his playfulness between textures and period style/modern pieces.
