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.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
