Unicorn Frappuccino: A Day At Macy’s Herald Square

Unicorn Frappuccino: A Day At Macy’s Herald Square

Unicorn Frappuccino

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog.  For this post, I will be talking about the infamous Unicorn Frappuccino sold by Starbucks.   So after so much talk and hype about the drink, I finally got the chance to taste if for myself.

Today during my adventure in New York City, I decided to check out Macy’s Herald Square.

 

Located on 151 W 34th street, the store is humongous.  The store has about 8 floors, 5 or more retaurants, and about 4 Starbucks locations spread throughout different levels of the store.   So after going inside the store and browsing around for about 20 minutes,  I came across Starbucks.


I guess if you guys may not have guessed it by now, I love Starbucks.  Especially their frappuccinos which I always get everytime I go.   So when i walked up to the register and ordered the drink, I was kind of suprised that they had it available.  Mainly because the last time that I ordered the drink back home in Philly, they did not have the ingredients to make the drink.  So as you guys can imagine, I was not a happy camper at that time.

So after getting my drink and finding a seat to sit down in, it was time for the “taste”.

 

I will say that even though the drink did look pretty, it tasted okay.  The flavor reminded me of cotton candy which made it taste sweet.  At the same time, I did taste some hint of  sourness too. Don’t get me wrong, I could definitely see myself getting this drink again.  Yet on the other hand, I felt like it was not nothing special.  Just an ordinary frappuccino with cotton candy flavoring.


Though if I had to compare this frappuccino to my other 2 favorites by Starbucks which are the Vanilla Bean Creme and Strawberries & Creme, I would still go with my top two favorites.  So what do you guys think?! Have you had the chance to try out this magical drink or are you still on the waiting list to get one lol?. If so definitely try to get your hands on this drink.  Just know that what ever i say in this post is my own personal opinion so don’t let that stop you from giving this drink a try. So I hope you all enjoyed this post and talk to you all in another one!

A Letter To My College Self: Finding Myself

A Letter To My College Self: Finding Myself

Hey everyone and welcome back to another cool post.  As you guys can see from the title, I am writing a letter to my college self.  I know that college is different for everyone, and things are not always easy. Some might leave with a student loan debt (here is a cool refinancing option ) or some might leave wtih life-long friendships.  So whether you are in college or not, you are never too old to reflect and learn something new. College is a journey that may have many ups and downs, but throught it all you have to remain positive  and not let things get out of control lol.

MY LETTER TO MY COLLEGE SELF


Dear Brooke,

How are things going for you so far.?  Hopefully you are taking college serious and making smart choices. By the way I know that the cafeteria food is not the best, but I guess this is what you get for going to a community college.  On the bright side, at least you have some delicious food trucks near the school. Especially the one that makes those amazing breakfast sandwiches which are yum yum yum!

Besides eating delicious food from the trucks, make sure you are getting some help for your math class. I know that math is not your favorite subject, but don’t worry you are not alone.  Their are millions of people who feel the same way too so don’t feel stressed out girl.   Just make sure you get yourself a tutor and stop playing games little missy.  You don’t want to repeat that same math class for another semester or do you.?


I know that making the decision to go to college was never easy for you.  Debating back and forth in your mind did you make the right choice for yourself can definitely be overwhelming.  You start to think  “Did I make the right decision for myself or am I only doing this to make my mother happy?.”   Look girl, I know you don’t want to disappoint your’e mother and it’s okay.  We all go through phases in our life in which we struggle to find ourselves in this crazy world.   So even if you came into this semester with a mindset of uncertainity, just try to stay positive and put your best foot forward.

So even if you feel after a semester or two that you are still confused about your life, you can always take a break.  Or to get your mind off of things, try something different. Get involved with some extracurricular activities at the school like cheerleading or become part of a writing workshop since you enjoy writitng poetry so much. Meet new people and possibly gain new friendships.  Most of all, don’t forget the importance of your education while you are busy being a social butterfly.


Well with that being said, I hope you enjoy your time at college and take the time to learn more about yourself.   Embrace every exprience whether good or bad because life is not perfect. Remember to live life, be yourself, and always look forward to the future. Talk to you later and have an amazing semester girl. Rock on!!!

 

Sincerely,

Brooke
