The tale of the toffee nut latte…

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 7 - 2011

I know you’re all raring to get back into some beauty-related ponderings (heaven knows, I am!) – but I wanna take a minute to share Leila’s first Toffee Nut Latte with you…

Doesn’t she look bored with her water?  Perhaps she’s ready for the good stuff…

mmmm… did you know that a vente eggnogg latte contains nearly 500 calories? So glad I limited my Starbucks festive drink intake to the double figures this Christmas.

“But what’s this?”

“Mam-meeee?  What’s this?”

tentatively… softly softly catchee monkey…

nom. nom.. NOM…

That’s my girl.

Let’s just say… I didn’t get any cream with my coffee.

Have a glorious Friday people, promise I’ll be back tomorrow with makeup-related frippery – thank you for all your kind comments, you’ve given my New Year a spring to it’s step! x

    I was actually laughing on the huge spoon of cream photo! Please produce another child I can adopt? I’m starting to worry my baby will be nowhere as cute as Leila!!

    Oh, how gorgeous!! Though you’re on a slippery slope there – my five see off all the cream/toppings on my drinks in a flash – and have expensive tastes for frappucinos (with cream) whenever they can get away with it…

    Also: I am so glad that your site is back. I am sure it was an awful feeling to lose all that material but 1. it is not the end of the world, 2. it seems to me you have nothing to worry about with regard to reader loyalty. :-D

    So adorable! You must get her her own baby-ccino next time. They basically froth some milk in an espresso mug and sprinkle it with a little cocoa. My youngest loves it and it makes for a very cute photo (I have one somewhere on my blog), especially if you line the dinky cup next to a tall mug and a grande mug. There is something a little goldilocks and the three bears about it all!

    My youngest child, a daughter is 15 next week, she wants a sister, after seeing Leila she wants a sister more… I’d quite like a Leila too but that is no longer possible sadly. Babies do hats so well. Great set of pics. Jan x

  22. PRECIOUS! No more words, heart is melting due to cuteness overload.

    Also, if you ever want something cold in the summer, ask for a Toffee Nut Frappucino – I used to work there and I KNOW they can make it for you. Or an Iced Toffee Nut Latte, or Iced Coffee with Toffee Nut Syrup. If you want to save on calories, ask for fewer pumps of syrup. Hope this helps you enjoy the TF goodies without so much guilt!

  23. Omg 500 calories are they serious. Damn.

    But OMG she’s adorable. Good taste, too. Toffee is forever amazing despite it’s current calorific incarnation.

    Haha so sweet! This is the exact face I made http://www.lipglossiping.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/IMG_5016.jpg after seeing the photo of your creamy drink.

    Frappachinos are almost 600calories. I used to drink two or three a week when I was 17 with no effect on my waistline (I wish I had my teenage metabolism back). Now I wouldn’t touch one with a bargepole! xx
