Me: Daddy can I have some of your coffee?
Him: You don’t want coffee
Me: Why not?
Him: Because coffee makes your head hard…
I should’ve listened, I should’ve taken heed…18 years later and I’m a cup a daykind of gal…minimum. I used to be fancy with it too – “Yeah I’ll have an upsidedowncaramelmacchiatowithsoyandanextrashot. mmmkay thanks!”
Now – I keep it simple…couple of packets of splenda here, a little soy there and bam! I’m caffeine’d up for the
day hour. Iced or hot I’m all about it.
Recently, coffee has become quite the accessory…you can’t look through a tabloid without seeing a celeb looking glamorous with their big shades and cup of starbucks. Let’s be honest – for the average person this ‘accessory’ can get a little pricey by the end of the month. So here’s a hint, for the best dose of caffeine get the regular cup of joe. Yup you heard it – ixnay on the $5.00 ‘double shot of this’ drink and load up on that bold roast.
So for $1.50-$2.00 you can still have your uber chic cup of iced or hot coffee – annnnnd at Starbucks you can stay fabulous/awake throughout the day for .50c a refill when you reuse your cup!
