Great drinks to spice up your normal order.

Starbucks has lots of fun new drinks on the menu this summer like the S'mores Frappuccino and Guava Passionfruit drink. But there's lots more fun drinks you can order that aren't on the menu. Here's some of my creations that are sure to brighten your day! All the recipes below are for grande drinks.

1. Strawberry Shortcake Frappuccino

I created this one a few weeks ago when a coworker said they were craving strawberry shortcake. Man did this hit the spot!

Order a Grande Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino with:

No Classic Syrup

2 Scoops of Vanilla Bean Powder

Graham Cracker Topping

1 Pump of Hazelnut Syrup

2. Leprechaun Frappuccino

This one a coworker of mine brainstormed while craving a Shamrock Shake from McDonald's.

Order a Grande Matcha Frappuccino with:

2 Pumps of Peppermint

3 Scoops of Java Chips

Cookie Crumble Topping

3. Cold Brew with Chocolate Strawberry Cold Foam

My store came up with this drink for Valentine's Day. Order this as a Nitro Cold Brew for an extra caffeine kick.

Order a Grande Cold Brew with:

Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Foam

A Splash of Strawberry Puree and 2 Pumps of Mocha (in the Cold Foam)

4. Iced Hazelnut White Mocha

This drink is one of my personal favorites. It's a great mid-day caffeine pick-me-up.

Order a Grande Blonde Iced White Chocolate Mocha with:

Only 2 Pumps of White Mocha

2 Pumps of Hazelnut

Coconut Milk

Light Ice

5. Peach Pie Frappuccino

I made this drink once when I had a craving for peach pie. Although it's not quite the same as a fresh slice of homemade peach pie, it was delicious!

Order a Grande Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino with:

Peach Infusion to the bottom ridge on the cup

Coconut Milk

Graham Cracker Topping

6. Pokemon Go Frappuccino

So this drink used to be on the menu but there's no longer a button for people to be able to order it. I really enjoyed the drink and Starbucks still carries everything to make it, so here's how you can enjoy it.

Order a Grande Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino with:

3 Pumps of Raspberry Syrup

2 Scoops of Freeze Dried Blackberries

7. Raspberry Mocha

This drink is super simple and delicious hot or iced.

Order a Grande Mocha (Hot or Iced) with:

4 Pumps of Raspberry Syrup

8. Cinnamon Roll Frappuccino

There's many different versions of this one on the internet, but of all the variations of it this is the one I liked the most. Not sure who first came up with this recipe but I am IN LOVE with it.

Order a Grande Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino with:

2 Pumps of Cinnamon Dolce Syrup

2 Pumps of White Mocha Sauce

Extra Caramel Drizzle (inside the cup and on top)

Extra Cinnamon Dolce Topping

9. Fruity Pink Drink

No this isn't the famous Pink Drink made with Strawberry Acai. But this Pink Drink is just as delicious, if not more delicious, as the original

Order a Grande Iced Passion Tea with:

No Liquid Cane Sugar

No Water Sub Coconut Milk

Raspberry Syrup

Freeze Dried Blackberry Pieces

10. Snicker-doodle Latte

Snicker-Doodles are my favorite cookies. This warm latte reminds me of those cookies.

Order a Grande White Chocolate Mocha with:

Only 2 Pumps of White Mocha

Extra Cinnamon Dolce Topping

I hope these drinks help you enjoy something a little extra special this summer.

According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

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)

Paramount Pictures

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.
