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

    SO CUTE!
    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!!

  2. Amy says:

    Is that the elusive Mr Lippie I spy! She is very very very adorable. Looks like Stabucks have got another future addict!


  3. HeidiB says:

    OMG! She is so adorable! The pictures made me smile for the firts time today, thank you for that!

  4. Helen says:

    LOL – think you may have started something there…! She’s gorgeous xx

  5. PeachBellini says:

    So adorable! This really made me smile and happily, even tho smiling currently hurts (darn flu, driving me nuts).

  6. Viv in the UK says:

    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…

  7. Debbie says:

    God love her she is a totally honey and that big wide “feeeed me now” mouth is too too cute! Happy Friday

  8. Arrow says:

    So adorable!! Love those amazing eyelashes. Total cutie.
    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. 😀
    Happy New Year to everyone here!

  9. She’s GORGEOUS! I laughed at the big NOM photo as well lol x

  10. Jeneille says:

    :( man I miss Starbucks

  11. Louise says:

    Awrrr! This is the cutest thing EVER! x

  12. Loveaudrey says:

    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!


  13. Gemx says:

    Aww so cute! 😀

  14. redtiger21 says:

    Haha that’s so cute!!!

  15. Jan says:

    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

  16. Shortiee31 says:

  17. gio says:

  18. SaBRINA KHAN says:

  19. SaBaH says:

    Aww a yummy latte with a cutie pie! Both are so sweet!

  20. jayashri says:

    the pics are lovely :)
    i so missed ur blog.. so happy its back up an runnin now :)


  21. 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!

  22. 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.

  23. Geek Faerie says:

    I adore the second to last picture. She leanin in mouth opened wide to devour every sweet delicious morsel! Yous have a beautiful beautiful daughter!! I adore the pictures you share as much as I love reading about the make-up. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely family and your passion for photography with us! *hugs and kisses all around*

  24. Sarah says:

    she is so freaking cute, NOM NOM NOM she is a gal after my own heart, so glad to you back :) xxxxxx

  25. Tracy S says:

    Hahahaha-so cute! Totally reminds me of when I gave my baby her first taste of chocolate ice cream-exact same faces!

  30. Jean says:

    It’s Mr. L who does have a name!! 😀 She is soooo cute…

  31. Div says:

    SO CUTE!
    Toffeenut is the best Starbucks flavour ever! I’m always so upset when they run out of syrup in Feb & have to wait for it to be released again in November!

  32. lulu says:

    awww what a cutie pie!! she’s adorable! And I agree with her, toffeenut latte’s are tasty!

  33. Jools says:

    She is a quick learner :0)

  34. tass says:

    Haha so sweet! This is the exact face I made 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

  35. Jessica W. says:

    And that melts the heart lol. So adorable

  36. dohh so cute!~ That drink looks very yummy, even though I prefer my coffee black.

  37. sherrie says:

    Gorgeous!! I must try that sounds delish!! x

  38. Daisy says:

    Haha, I love these photos! She’s so adorable.x
