Starbucks; who doesn't love sipping on a cup of coffee? Especially one with cream, and lots of flavors. If your anything like me, then you probably enjoy all the creative creamy, sugary drinks Starbucks has to offer. However, many of these drinks tend to range in the 400-500 calorie range. If you want the tastiness of Starbucks, but without all the calories, here are a few drink ideas that will decrease that caloric amount while you still enjoy the taste of Starbucks.

1. Skinny Cinnamon Dolce 

If you are a cinnamon lover like me then you would enjoy the Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte. This has a creamy texture and is sweet while light on calories ranging around 120 for a grande.

RECIPE

Grande Coffee

Sugar-Free Dolce Syrup

Almond Milk

TOTAL CALORIES = 100

2. Skinny Peppermint Mocha

If you are a lover of Christmas drinks and all things holidays but don't want the extra jolly of calories, then the Skinny Peppermint Mocha is for you.

RECIPE

Tall cafe americano

Sugar-free peppermint flavoring

Non-fat milk

Skinny Peppermint Mocha = 60 calories

3.The Refresher with Coconut Milk

Ever crave a smoothie, but don't want to be overwhelmed with the calories from greek yogurt? Then ordering a Starbucks Refresher with Coconut Milk is the way to go.

RECIPE

Strawberry Acai

Mango Dragonfruit

Very Berry Hibiscus

Grande Ordered with Coconut Milk = 140 Calories

4. Iced Coffee.

Who doesn't love an iced coffee? While these tend to be a healthier option on the menu, a Grande Iced Carmel Macchiato is in the 250 calorie range. There are healthier options with the same sweet savory taste, but with half the calories.

RECIPE

Venti Iced Coffe

Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup/& or another syrup of your own choice

Add in your own milk+Sweetner to cut down on calories and reduce the cost!

5. Caramel Light Frappuccino.

For all you frappuccino lovers, my self-included, I have to sadly announce that Starbucks frappucinos are one of the highest calorie choices on the menu. A healthy alternative to the drink is ordering the light version.

All you have to do is order the regular drink with nonfat milk and no whip cream, leaving a tall at around 100 calories!

Starbucks offers a fantastic variety of drinks, however, the calories can add up, especially if you are a regular customer. Overall, these healthier drink alternatives will reduce the number of calories consumed while you can continue to enjoy your favorite flavors.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
