my weekend highlights Hot Wheels color reveal , a Starbucks food review, voting,and a vegan burrito

Hello, my bucket list friends! It is time for another blog post where I talk about my weekend. This post does include a food review and a toy review. However overall it was a pretty normal weekend. I did work both weekend days but I like my new job so it’s all good. without anymore introduction let’s get to it.

Friday – After work on Friday night, I went to Safeway because I was low on food at home. While I was there I was happily surprised. I saw that they had Hot Wheels color reveal on sale for a really good price. I had only gotten Barbie color reveal before so I thought that this would be fun to try. The rest of the night I just relaxed at home I didn’t stay up very late becuse I had work the next day.

Saturday – I had to be into work at noon but before that I had some things I wanted to do. The first thing was going to Starbucks. I’m so happy that peppermint mochas are back for the season! I also thought it would be fun to do a food review on one of their seasonal items. I had ordered the item I wanted to review the first day it was available but they had already sold out for the day by the time I ordered it. The item I’m talking about is the new chocolate pistachio swirl. After trying it on Saturday, I can see why it sold out quickly. It was so good. It was warm, comforting and flavorful. Definitely a must try if you are a fan of chocolate and nuts together. I highly recommend giving this new item a try. After a wonderful trip to Starbucks, my mom and I went to vote. I like that we have a location near by that let’s us vote early so we can avoid the election day crowds. We walked right in with no wait, voted , and went on our way after getting I voted stickers of course. I put my sticker on top of my Starbucks cup. When all that was finished we still had some time before I had to be at work. We went on a walk around the area where my work is. We stopped at a near by toy store where I got a cute duck toy. I don’t think I had ever seen a duck toy that looked like this one. It was super cute and unique so I was excited to buy it, As I write this my duck toy is still in my purse. I don’t know how long I’ll keep it in there for but I do like having it with me. I enjoyed my day at work it was slow sometimes but overall it was a good day. That evening we went to dinner at a neighbor’s house. it was nice to relax,eat, and talk with some great people.

Sunday- I’m going to be honest Sunday started out a little on the stressful side. My phone was not working for some reason and it was not receiving the messages that my work was sending me. Also my coffee order did not go through even though my phone said it did, I had to have my mom drop me off at work before I could get the coffee and of course there was a lot off traffic. I replaced the order for the coffee and then my mom dropped it off to me at work. I got the same thing I did the day before a peppermint mocha and a chocolate pistachio swirl. Yes, I liked Starbucks’s new seasonal baked good so munch that I got it two days in a row. For my lunch I ordered a Vegan burrito from Uber Eats and had it delivered. I don’t get food delivered that often but after looking at all the choices on Uber Eats I may just have to order from them again. After work I went to Safeway again I got a cute scratch off lottery ticket, some yummy food and I also got another color reveal toy but this time I got a Barbie color reveal doll. I had only bought two dolls from the series that this doll was in but they turned out to both be the same one so I thought I would try again by buying a third doll. That night I decided to see not only what doll I got but I also decided to open my first Hot Wheels color reveal toys. One thing I really like about Hot Wheels color reveal is that there are two cars in each container. It was very easy to see what cars I got. I simply took them out of their bags and put them both into the container. Then I put them in the sink and turned the water on. I was happy with the cars I got. However, I did get the same doll three times so I did bother to put my 3rd of the same doll in water. I don’t think I’ll take another chance with this series unless I find it on sale for a really good price.

Thanks for reading about my adventures this weekend!

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!

It was a fun trip to Target and an overall good day. Sunday was mother’s day! We started off the day by going to church and ended the day by going to a fancy dinner. In between church and dinner I went to Starbucks ,went on a walk and took a bath with two very cute bath bombs. Dinner was amazing the picture I took of my dinner turned out amazing.

Strawberry funnel cake Frappuccino review

Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s time for food review! When I heard about the new Strawberry funnel cake Frappuccino at Starbucks I new I just had to try it! I’m a huge strawberry fan so I was excited to try this strawberry treat. Before I get into my review I want to say that I did order this drink with almond milk instead of the default whole milk. When I first took a sip of this drink it tasted like a maple flavor. It took me a second to realize that flavor was funnel cake part of the drink. There was strawberry flavor through out the drink but the maple flavor was the strongest flavor that I tasted. I did enjoy this drink and I finished all of it. It was definitely worth trying but the Carmel Frappuccino is still my favorite!

Hello, my bucket list friends! One thing I love about summer is that it tends to be a busy time of year. This year has followed that rule. Things have been busy for me lately. Most of it has been a good busy but as us you will read below not all of it has been the good kind of busy. Anyways I need to catch up on blog posts so for this blog post I’ll be covering three different topics. Without anymore delay let’s dive in!

Impossible breakfast sandwich review

I was excited when I saw that Starbucks had a new vegetarian breakfast sandwich! When I tried it I was happy that I did! It had such a great flavor. Even if you’re not a vegetarian I recommend trying out this very yummy breakfast sandwich!

My trip to the ER

Here comes the not so fun part of this post. On July 14 I got a bad pain on my left side the pain was located right below my ribcage. At first I thought that the pain probably wouldn’t last long and that I would be able to stay at home with no problem. Well, I was wrong! The pain continued on and got worse to the point where I could hardly walk! It was becoming clear that I needed to get this checked out. My amazing friend came and drove me to the ER. To make a long story short after a whole bunch of tests and waiting for results. It turned out to be a muscle spasm. Unfortunately my trip to the ER took about 7 hours and my friend was waiting for me the whole time! I was so happy when it came time to leave especially since my pain was pretty much gone. I was also very thankful for my friend. I was given medicine and the instructions they gave me said to stay away from activities that would put a strain on my muscles. I’m glad it turned out to be nothing serious!

I love short hair!

Fun fact about me, I have very thick hair that grows fast! I know some people enjoy spending time brushing and styling their hair but I’m not one of those people. I love having a short and easy hair cut. I had been meaning to get a haircut for awhile and this month I finally got a chance. I went to great clips and they did a wonderful job! I love my shot summer hair cut!

So there you have it! Three posts in one thanks for reading.

Tie – Dye Frappuccino !!

Hello, my bucket list friends ! A lot of you know that I’m a big fan of Starbucks. when I saw that they had come out with a fun fruit flavored drink, I just had to try it ! I’m excited to tell you all about it so let’s go !

Tie – Dye Frappuccino !!

This story starts last week , when I was just scrolling through Instagram. I came across a post from Starbucks announcing their new limited time drink called the Tie РDye Frappuccino. I got excited and I knew I just had to try it before it ran out. I had work later that afternoon, I figured that I would just leave early for work and go to the Starbucks near by. My friend wanted to join me on this Tie РDye Frappuccino quest so she came and picked me up. Then we headed off to Starbucks! I was a little worried that they may have sold out already because this new colorful drink was being written about on news websites! It turned out that there was no need to worry because there was no line and plenty of Tie РDye Frappuccinos left to go around. When our drinks were ready I was not disappointed ! They looked very beautiful. The only down side is that they turned to all yellow pretty quickly but hey yellow is a happy color!Now, on to the taste . The Tie РDye Frappuccino  had a bold fruity flavor. It tasted like a shake plus it was topped with whipped cream! I really enjoyed it but if your more of a coffee or chocolate fan I would skip this one.

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 .
