Bachelorette Bash

This past weekend, I headed out to Long Island for a friend’s bachelorette party! We stayed at a house right on the beach and had the best time visiting the wineries, singing karaoke, and soaking up some sun. After I made it there, that is. I haven’t had the best luck with planes, trains, and automobiles lately!

I woke up 30 minutes before the bus was to leave. (#serialsnoozer) How I made it, I have no idea. Did I mention I hadn’t packed yet? I mean, why would I ever do something ahead of time? In my moments of panicked packing, I grabbed the largest bag I could find (this lobster-printed cutie), tossed in my bathing suit, SPF for face & body, and a cute towel. I grabbed my makeup, curling iron, 2 dresses, a pair of sandals, and I was out the door. I may have forgotten a few essentials (like sunglasses and a cover-up), but thankfully the other girls could help me out.

While I was sitting at the Starbucks in Manorville waiting for my ride after the bus dropped me off, I picked up a few Starbucks Iced Coffees to bring to the house for the girls. They were a big hit, especially after a long night of drinks and dancing! 😉

The new line-up of bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee beverages gives you great-tasting, energizing refreshment with premium Starbucks® coffee from 100 percent arabica beans. Starbucks® Iced Coffee ready-to-drink beverages are perfect on-the-go refreshment to help you through the daily commute, the midday slump, or an exciting road trip adventure with friends. Best enjoyed chilled from the bottle, look for it at major grocery and convenience stores, available nationwide.

    I would actually enjoy reading about your beach weekend but it was disappointing that you turned it into a post about coffee. Seemed really fake.

    Sigh, you and Hallie both hitting up the beach this past weekend makes me wish I had, too! I did spend a good amount of time wandering in Brooklyn, though…sans delish iced coffee!

    I’m obsessed with the cartons of Iced Starbucks coffee you can buy, I’ve been buying them everytime I go to the grocery.

    I am loving the glasses these iced coffees are coming in. I’ve been spray painting them silver and using them as vases.

        I’ve been taping off the bottom and adding glitter. It looks so cute! It’s makes a very pretty centerpiece!

    Lolllll… The Advil is a perfect touch. That flavor is my favorite! I usually cut it with a little water in a glass (I sound like I’m talking about bourbon; not a coincidence) to make it last longer. Tricks ‘o the trade 😉

    For a perfect cup of iced coffee every time, just tear open a packet of Starbucks VIA® Iced Coffee and add 16 fl oz of cold water. Serve in a tall glass filled halfway with ice. Try it with a little milk. Enjoy.

    I have to agree with the other commenters. What could have been a fun post turned into a blatant shill for Starbucks. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first obvious sell-out on your blog. How disappointing.
