It's That Time of Year...

...The reemergence of red cups at Starbucks! You know what this means, Christmas is just around the corner, and less than 2 months away! I can hardly believe it! Where does the time go? I feel like we just started school, and the next thing, everything is bedazzled in orange and black for Halloween, the next I'm hearing Christmas music in line at Starbucks.

But, not going to lie, while I love to support the little guy (the non-chain coffee shop), I do enjoy me a gingerbread latte. Mmm...

What holiday recurrences do you look forward to?

Oh I miss the Gingerbread Latte!!!

In Japan the special Christmas drink is the Caramel Eclair Latte. It tastes good, but it's no gingerbread.... I wonder why they decided to not release Gingerbread... I guess Japanese people wouldn't like the taste, as they're not acquainted with it.

Kisses my dear

Ps: I am hosting a sweet GIVEAWAY today! Please, join in!

Gingerbread lattes for sure! But also claymation and the Thanksgiving Day parade! And holiday music. Can't wait!

I get excited about the red cups too... I love the peppermint white mocha!

I love that it is party season for me and my friends. We switch off holidays starting at Halloween and while we all get partied out by the end of it it is a magical time. :)

It is moments like these I actually regret that we don't have Starbucks in Sweden. Why is that?? The swedes drink more coffee than any other country in the world...
All these holiday flavors sounds delicious! I really need to get my hands on something like it. I'll have to investigate the domestic coffee shop chains to see if any have picked up on the gingerbread latte yet...

Xmas is back at Starbucks in Madrid too!

Today I have tried hot chocolate (so wonderful), which I had never done, cause I always order White Mocca...

Good to see those red cups again!
