Fave Festive Holiday Coffee Drink

I absolutely love Seasonal Coffee drinks! My favorite one is the Winter Berry Latte from Caffe Nero – This drink is pure heaven in a cup! If you love the combination of whipped cream & espresso or even the taste of affogato, then you will absolutely love this! The taste of thick fluffy and rich layer of whipped cream on top of the hot espresso from the latte is phenomenal! And that’s not all, the strawberry syrup on top is like a cherry on the cake – it really completes the drink. I finished this in about 5 seconds & I ordered the grande size. I sort of had a good feeling about this one. I highly recommend the Winter Berry Latte to everyone and anyone that has Caffe Nero in their city, or even to those who are travelling to the following Caffe Nero locations: UK Ireland Poland Turkey United Arab Emirates USA Cyprus   In US the Caffe Nero locations that I found are located in Boston and I’m adding the coffee shop address locations below for anyone interested to check …

Why I removed myself from the NaBloPoMo Challenge

Hello Sunshine lovers! 🙂 I hope you are having an awesome weekend across the World wherever you may be. Last month I sort of wanted to get on the NaBloPoMo Challenge again but when the time actually came for NaBloPoMo to begin, I wasn’t as interested in it as I had been before, but I still went with it. At some point, I made a decision, to just stop. The truth is, life has thrown other challenges my way. I don’t usually like to talk about negative things, but I’ve been sick for the past 6 weeks & it’s been a crazy rollercoaster ride. My brain & body were filled with all sorts of meds which were supposed to make me feel better & they actually made me feel a lot worse. The meds that were supposed to cure my allergies gave me crazy allergic reactions. Crazy right? Today is actually Day 1 w/out meds & I’m finally starting to feel like myself again. Now I just gotta catch up on a lot of lost …

Wine lessons

Originally posted on Salt of Portugal:
If you’d like to learn more about wine, we have the perfect plan. Adega Mãe, a new winery in the Lisbon region, organizes one-day courses on wine appreciation that are seriously fun. The morning is devoted to the theoretical aspects of wine making and wine tasting. After a coffee break, the practice begins. Guided by an experienced enologist, you taste Portuguese wines made with different varietals and compare them with foreign wines. Once your palate is trained, lunch is served in the beautiful dining room that overlooks the vineyards. Wines produced with grapes from these vineyards are carefully matched with each different dish. After lunch, there is opportunity to ask more questions and taste more wine. Don’t leave before trying Adega Mãe’s elegant Alvarinho white wine! Adega Mãe is located near the town of Torres Vedras.
