Blogmas day 12, an after church event, a new hair bow, and Trader Joe’s

Hello, my bucket list, friends! Yesterday, I attended a fun event at my church after Sunday service. The event was called Christmas around the world. There was food and activities inspired by different countries. I was helping out with the poinsettia pinwheel craft. I made one, and I also decorated an ornament with stickers! In the afternoon, I went into town to do a few things. There were some highlights from my errands in town. At Walgreens, I got this super cute Christmas themed hair bow along is a bunch of skittles in a plastic candy cane. I also got to go to Trader Joe’s. It had been a while since I had been there. I had seen pictures of some of their seasonal treats, and I really wanted to see what seasonal items were at my local store. I ended up getting two seasonal treats from Trader Joe’s. One was a candy cane, and the other was a container of candy cane chocolate covered almonds. The almonds were so good that I would definitely get them again. I haven’t had the candy cane yet, but I have a feeling it will be good. After all that, I got Starbucks! It was a pretty good day.

Blogmas day 11 a craft faire and a coffee shop

Hello, my bucket list, friends! Yesterday I went to a local craft faire. I haven’t been to this event in a long time, so I was very excited that I got the chance to go yesterday morning. I was glad that the craft faire was inside because it was a rainy day. There were a lot of different vendors at the craft faire. I was excited when I saw a bunch of cute ornaments. I was even more excited when I found out that you could choose one and have it personalized. I chose a cat and had my name and the year put on it. Another thing that really caught my eye was a bunch of beautiful soaps. I was happy that there was soap that had toys inside. I got one soap that had a cat shaped toy inside and another that had a whale inside. I walked around a little more at the craft faire, and t I got one more item before it was time to leave. I this this very cute owl plush ornament. I have it sitting on the dresser next to my bed, and I love it so much. After the craft faire, we went home for a little bit before I had to go into town for work. I had some time before my shift started, so I spent some time at a nearby coffee shop. It was raining most of the day, so the coffee shop was the perfect place to hang out before work. I got a coffee and a reindeer shaped cookie at the coffee shop. After the coffee shop, I walked to work. Work went well, and after my shift, I went back home and had a nice night in.

Thanks for reading about my Saturday fun!

Blogmas day 10 Two trips to Starbucks and fun at the toy store.

Hello,my bucket list, friends! Welcome to the 10th day of blogmas! Yesterday, I went to Starbucks twice, and I also got two fun items at the toy store. I can’t wait to tell you more about it, so let’s get to it. My first trip to Starbucks was before I went to work. I got a sugar cookie almond milk latte. That drink has become one of my go-to Starbucks drinks lately. After that I still had time before work so I decided to go to the toy store. I was planning on getting another play foam pals toy. I didn’t see any at first, but then I saw that they had a few left. I got an orange colored one. I haven’t opened it yet, but I’m excited to see what toy is inside the foam. At the toy store, they were having a sale on advent calendars. They were 40% off. I decided to get this one that had 12 ornaments in it that you color. After the toy store, I went to work. My work day went well, and then I went home. However, when I was close to being home, I realized that I had left my toy store bag at work. I went back to work, and I was happy that I didn’t leave it outside. I had left it on a table inside. After I got my bag. I went to Starbucks again. I want to get my my something to say thank you to my mom for taking me back to work. I also got myself a peppermint mocha and a snowman cookie. It was a good way to end the day.

Just another great weekend in California

Hello, my bucket list friends! In my last post I talked about what I did during my weekdays now it is time to talk about what I did during my weekend. Sometimes I include Friday in these posts but since I already covered Friday in the post I just mentioned ( You can read it HERE) I will only be talking about Saturday and Sunday in this post. Without anymore introduction it is time to get to it!

Saturday – Looking through my pictures of what I did this day I remember that I tried a candy that I got at Whole Foods the day before. I’m going to do a separate post reviewing this item but I will say that it was really good. I’m happy to say that on this day I went to Starbucks and then went for a walk in the park with my coffee, my mom and the neighbor’s dog. It was a very beautiful day and I was  happily surprised to see that the park was not busy. I climbed to the top of the playground and then went down the slide. I posted the video of me going down the slide on my Instagram my user name is summerrockstar if you want to see it. After the park I went to CVS. I love that CVS sells Claire’s products. I got a set of three Claire’s bracelets plus a bunch of other great items including a TY plush toy, a magazine about animals, hair bows, and peppermint candy. After my little shopping spree I waited in the car with the dog while my mom bought birdseed at another store in the shoppingcenter. While I was in the car I posted on BE Real. I took a picture of my new TY plush sitting on the dashboard. I was very happy with my Be Real post for the day. After that it was time to head back home. After relaxing at the house for a while, we went to go visit a family member. On the way there we stopped at a store where I got this super cute gingerbread cookie. It was a pretty great day!

Sunday – This day was pretty relaxed overall however I did do a cute mouse suncatcher craft kit and we also went into town to do some errands. I happy to say that yes these errands included Starbucks. When I went to pick up the drinks that I had ordered at Starbucks, I saw that they had accidently made one of the drinks  I had ordered iced instead of hot. Not only were they super cool about remaking it they let me keep the iced one too.  I’m actually drinking that iced one right now as I write this! Our other errands were Petco, Trader Joes and Safeway. At Trader Joes I got a snack that I had never seen before. I can’t wait to try it and do a review on it and at Safeway I got a cupcake that had three butterfly rings on top! It was a pretty easy going day but I enjoyed it.

Thank you for reading! I hope all of you had great weekends!

Review of Trader Joe’s coffee lovers espresso beans

Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s time for another fun food review. Trader Joe’s is good at providing fun things for me to review. I got this item on Sunday I saw it up at the register and since I’m a coffee lover I knew I had to try this. I liked that beans were different flavors and that they didn’t all look the same. I loved this sweet snack it was the perfect mix of coffee and chocolate. It took me about two days to finish the small bag but it could take longer if you spread it out a bit more than I did. I highly recommend trying this if you are a coffee lover!

Thanks for reading this food review

Starbucks Cherry Mocha review

Hello, my bucket list friends today I tried a drink from Starbucks that I’ve never had before. It’s called a cherry Mocha and I’m excited to share my thoughts about it with all of you. Here we go !


Starbucks Cherry Mocha review

I go to Starbucks quite a lot and I had seen the cherry mocha advertised there and it looked really good. I have been sticking with my regular order lately but today I mixed it up and ordered the cherry mocha. The cherry mocha is topped with whipped cream and sprinkles. I have to say it is a very yummy drink it tastes like you’re drinking chocolate covered cherries. This drink is very sweet and it’s not something that I would order every time but I would for sure order it again. To sum it all up this is a sweet and very yummy drink that is perfect if you are in the mood to satisfy your sweet tooth. If your’re a lover of sweet flavored coffee drinks give this one a try .
