Starbucks drink review…

Today I tried the “Peppermint Mocha”. My daughter had me take her to Starbucks, and I like the idea of having more coffee, and more caffeine.

At first I could taste the Peppermint, and as I drank the coffee, I thought it was gross. Too sweet, it was making me feel sick. Maybe because I had too much candy the night before. I drank the whole thing anyway, I wanted a caffeine fix! A lot of people love this drink, I do not, I’m not purchasing it again.


Starbucks drink reviews:

Today my daughter was begging me for Starbucks. I gave into her, and I was glad I did! I was exhausted, I needed some caffeine in my life, and a lot of it. I went hiking earlier, you can read about that here, and I was worn out and still needed to cook dinner.

I saw the Pumpkin spice latte, and I thought to myself that I had to try it. My daughter got a strawberry Açaí, talk about delicious.

The Pumpkin Spice latte was good. I could taste the pumpkin at first. I think it was good because they put cream in it lol! I think it is alright, but over priced. It’s not that good to spend that much money. I’ll take any coffee to be honest. I just drink coffee plain with milk and I’m happy.

My daughters strawberry Acai was delicious. I love strawberries. I let them soak in the drink, and I ate the strawberries afterwards. I thought I tasted lemon in this drink. This drink is worth the money.


My review for Echo Dot by Amazon.

So basically I have 5 Echo Dot’s in my house. I have Echo Dot in the living room, bathroom, kids rooms, and my room.

What is Echo Dot by Amazon? It’s a hands free smart speaker, that listens to voice commands.

This is how I use it:

In the morning my alarm goes off. I told echo the night before “Echo, set an alarm for 6 AM tomorrow”, I get up and I say “Echo, turn on bedroom lights”, Then when I ask echo “Echo, what is the weather going to be like today”. I pick my outfit and I get in the shower. I tell Echo to “play Fletwood Mac radio”, via Amazon Music. You can also connect your phone to echo and play music.

My favorite is to tell Echo to bark like a dog, or oink like a pig and get my cats and dogs riled up. It’s funny.

Here’s a list of things that you can do with Echo Dot:

  • Turn the lights in your home on or off
  • Get the weather report for the day
  • Get weather alerts like thunderstorm warning or tornado warning.
  • Track your Amazon package
  • Set an alarm
  • Set a timer for cooking
  • Make phone calls
  • Ask for recipes
  • Get the news report
  • Control the TV
  • My favorite, play music!
  • Set a reminder
  • Find your phone
  • Read you emails.
  • Get Nutrition tips
  • Talk to Echo in a different language.
  • Make a donation
  • Get advice or help for your pet
  • Listen to audio books
  • Call someone in another room
  • Check your credit card balance
  • Find a restaurant or any venue that you want to find.
  • Control your thermostat
  • You can ask Echo a score of a game. You can ask Echo anything that you would google on the Internet.

I’m sure there is tons more things that you can do with Echo.

Echo Dot is very convenient and time saving. I like having music in many rooms of the house.

There is not a monthly fee for Echo.

My Review for the Apple Watch Series 6.

My husband got me a fancy Apple watch. I love it. It is really useful. You can customize the face on your watch. I got the cute Minnie Mouse face on my watch.

Here are some of the features the Apple watch has on it:

  • There are various faces you can choose from for the home screen for your watch. Your home screen tells you:
  • the time, the temperature, and the date.
  • You can check your email, and your messages on you Apple watch.
  • You get an alerted when you have a call or message, which is very helpful for me when I am at work, or just because I am a busy person in general.
  • You can reply to messages, and you just easily tell the watch your message and send it, so convenient!
  • You can easily just say “Hey siri, send a message to so and so”, and click the speaker, and say your message and send! That simple.
  • There is a compass on the watch! This is great for me. I get lost hiking!!!
  • The Apple watch is great for active people. You can record your workouts. The Apple watch records your activity. How much you move, exercise, stand, and how many steps you take, and flights climbed. You can set your own goals on how many steps you want to take, how many calories you want to burn, how many minuets you want to exercise! It is great for losing weight! I can’t believe I walk 8 miles at work on average.
  • Some of the apps from your phone are on your Apple watch.
  • The Apple Watch has a feature where you select the water droplet in the settings to expel the water.
  • Apple says this watch is waterproof, which is great because I help the elderly shower at work. I don’t trust this. I think it’s crazy, but so far so good.
  • It tells you your vitals as in your heart rate, oxygen saturation, and does an EKG. As a health care provider, I don’t think this is very acurate. Makes me laugh. But when you work out it tells you how long it takes for your heart to recover which is pretty cool.
  • Pin on Pinterest for later!
