Five faves: Drinks


I haven’t posted one of these since August so I figured it was time for another. Let me know in the comments if you’d prefer them more frequently or spread out more- I always appreciate feedback from you guys! I’ve got a ton of photos in the album I’ve put together for this post, so I’m adding subcategories as I go…


I would say tea is my favorite thing to drink. I love them from hot to iced & loose leaf to bottled up! Arizona teas are a staple, so easy to pick up and always affordable. One of my faves from them is half & half with lemonade, but honestly they’re all delicious. Bubble tea is a treat- my favorite is either a classic oolong or honey milk tea with boba. I haven’t had one in a while, but I’ve really been craving a cup! In these winter months, a nice steaming cup is so comforting. I enjoy making my morning mug of bagged black tea + a splash of creamer. I also love the many loose teas I’ve received in my subscription over the months from Simple Loose Leaf…one thing they don’t sell is matcha powder lol I had a slight addiction to Starbuck’s matcha Frappuccinos and iced lattes over the summer, but I think I’m safe from that now. A lot of money spent & sugar consumed! I enjoyed the occasional green tea or bottle out of the fridge case at Sheetz before meeting Justin, but after fully experiencing all that tea can be- he’s opened my eyes to the wider world of tea & how great it is (:


I love a fruity, mixed drink as much as the next young adult, but here are some of my favorite alcoholic beverages…basically nothing with vodka & anything with rum! I’ve found a few restaurants that have awesome berries + rum drinks like Applebee’s, Rock Bottom, and Red Lobster. Justin & I also enjoy mixing our own stuff or finding good brands to bring home. I really like ciders cause I’m not into beers- we’ve found a couple at our local wine store. My mom even had us out to the cidery by her house! Bailey’s & coffee is a nice treat on a cold day, and a mimosa is always a lovely way to start your Sunday! One of my all time faves is something called “The Suffering Bastard” which is a silly name for a drink, but it’s basically just a ginger ale base with gin & rum shots (:

The others

Can’t go wrong with chocolate whether it’s a fancy Starbucks blend or the powder stirred in for a hot mug at home. We recently bought a tin at Wegmans that is one of the best hot chocolates I’ve tried. Sometimes when I think I’m hungry, all I really need is something to drink & smoothies are a welcome answer to that problem! When we go to Tropical Smoothie, I usually get either a peach one or cranberry with a couple add-ins like the matcha or ginger. I love being able to customize them (:

This wasn’t exactly the normal “five” faves like previous posts from this series, but I hope you still enjoyed a look through my older photos. I like these as filler so my blog doesn’t look too rushed if I don’t happen to have anything planned for that day- but it does make me nervous that it looks lower effort than other posts. I would love to hear your thoughts & opinions in the comments if you’d care to leave them! Thanks so much for following, reading, and always supporting me. Enjoy the rest of your week xo

  1. So. Many. Drinks.

    I LOVE tea but um wow sooo many times there. I’m a borong grandma so early grey is all i drink. Ahhh I’m in love with hot choco!! And ahh smoothies!

    I think it’s perfectly fine that you’re using older photos!! I loved this post and seeing the older ones might seem old to you but it’s fresh to us so I don’t mind. 😂 Hopefully that made sense. Kind of like there’s no expiry date when it comes to Shauna’s photography skills. Love this! 👏
