Unicorn Frappuccino at Starbucks !!!

Unicorn Frappucino

In case you have been living under a rock and haven’t heard, Starbucks has a limited edition release of The Unicorn Frappuccino from April 19 to the 23rd.

Of course, I had to try! Wearing my finest Lilly Pulitzers, I went to a nearby Starbucks only to find that they were SOLD OUT! Already?!?! Sold out of ingredients on Day #2??? Wow.

Luckily, the employee directed me to a Starbucks where I could indulge in this rare treat.

The Unicorn drink looks as pretty as all the Instagram and web photos out there, and I looked at it for a while before starting to drink it. I had heard terrible reviews of the taste and expected something disgusting. It was not bad at all, actually. The blue sour streak was a little harsh, but the pink mango flavored part was very pleasant. The whip cream on top is great because whip cream is always great. And yes, when you stir it up, it turns purple.

I’m headed out to run a few miles now. You’ll have to after drinking this. It is very sugary heavy and totally unhealthy. People at Starbucks hate making it too. See this webpage for some runny rants!

Too Cool For School is the brand that brought us Egg Mellow Butter (a DREAM!) and I was curious to try their cosmetics line. What better places to start than with a lip tint! That stained, i-just-drank-a-red-drink lip look is very trendy these days and I am always looking for something to achieve this. So I purchased the Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Tint in #1 Lost in You. It is sooooo cute!

The packaging really caught my eye! Look at how this pencil was wrapped and the artwork inside! LOVE!

I have tried this and actually have used it almost every day going to work this week. Next I want to try another shade and another product of theirs. The Mascara, maybe? Has anyone  tried anything else from Dinoplatz?

 

Starbucks’s Colab with Lilly Pulitzer on S’well Bottles – SCORE!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

What better gift than discovering two of the Lilly Pulitzer on S’well bottles for Starbucks!!!

They are very pretty. In person, I think they look a lot prettier than the photos. S’well bottles are great too – I had one I used for years and it got quite beat up. They really do keep liquids hot or cold for a long period of time and this is great for busy people on the go with no access to a refrigerator, especially.

I am currently searching for the Peach and Mermaid bottles now!!! Has anyone been able to score these prints?!? Who out there has gotten their hands on these amazing bottles???

These are selling out like crazy and not all Starbucks locations have received them. There are plenty of articles out there saying that they will be available online at the end of the month.

Sugarpill’s new limited edition Valentine’s Day palette “Feline Fancy” has arrived and it is just as good – if not better – as I imagined it to be. It is simply amazing!!! The packaging is just so cute with such sweet artwork it makes the whole package a totally awesome experience.

Just look at the inside of the box, under the palette!

It is little details like this that make Sugarpill’s stuff some of my favorite ever.

And the back of the box –

Mmmm! Sooooo nice.

The colors themselves are beautiful and highly pigmented, true to all of Sugarpill’s stuff. I haven’t tried the liquid lipstick yet – dark lips are not really my thing – but from looking at online photos, it can look very pretty on a pale complexion.

This is the palette I will be reaching for this Valentine’s Day – and many other days! It is so much fun. There are some left still online and you can buy one for yourself here.
