Sipping Saturday - Starbucks Cold Buster

It's cold season - ew. A couple of week ago I caught a cold and, curious, googled around to see if there was a drink perfect for this situation. Turns out there is. On Starbuck's hidden menu is something called the "cold buster". According to starbuckssecretmenu.net, this drink is made with steamed lemonade, jade citrus mint tea, peach tranquility tea, honey, and peppermint.

Pros: This definitely works to clear your sinuses. The mint especially helps clear thing up, and the tea is soothing for a sore throat.

Con: The steamed lemonade made this drink a bit sour, so I couldn't finish it. Mint and lemon are also a weird combination. Perhaps just getting the teas would be better next time.
From the outside, it looks pretty much like any other Starbucks drink.

But look how pretty the tea bags are!

Have you ever tried something off of the Starbucks secret menu? Or, do you have a better Starbucks drink to bust a cold? I'd love to hear about it!

Funky Friday - Easy Jewelry Organizer

I don't know about you, but if I don't have my jewelry out in plain view, I forget to wear it. However, keeping it piled on the bathroom counter isn't an ideal way to do this. So I made a super cheap and super easy jewelry organizer! Yes, there are much prettier versions out there, but my time (and money!) were more valuable to me when thinking of a way to do this.

Supplies Needed
1. Clear thumbtacks
2. Lace ribbon

Steps
1. Use the thumbtacks to pin the lace ribbon in a zig-zag pattern. I got my ribbon for super cheap (less than $1 including shipping) via eBay.
2. Pin a row of tacks below the lace ribbon, about 1 1/2 inches apart.
3. If desired, pin a second row of tacks below the first, staggered to be in between the first row.
4. Hang up your jewelry! Earrings get pinned through the lace ribbon and necklaces (and bracelets if desired) get hung from the thumbtacks.

Miscellaneous Monday - Monster's Inc Tsum Tsum Photo Shoot

So I have a bunch of Tsum Tsums (because, um, they're adorable), but they don't do much other than sit on my shelf. So... I held a photo shoot! For two of them, at least. Mike and Sulley got to once again join the scare floor. So without further ado...
