The Drink We Are OBSESSED With All Year Long!

Admittedly, I was a little late to jump on this train. Okay, really late but I can be a creature of habit and some leopards do not change their spots, especially when it comes to my coffee obsession. The most I will do is try a new syrup combination but I am pretty set on what I like and what I do not, having been a barista for three years in college. But, when Dunkin' had the $2 Cold Brew special, the budget conscious coupon clipper inside had to give it a shot. What was the worst that could go wrong? I would be out two bucks and be forced to add extra fat free french vanilla creamer from home? It was a risk I was willing to take. I ordered my medium cold brew with my regular 4 Sweet and Low/ cream combo, no syrup and handed over my two dollars and change. I waited for my beverage. Now, keep in mind, my local D and D, where I am a regular and have been for years, is not always super reliable, even when it comes to the same iced coffee I order on a daily basis. It is like I leave and they all get amnesia, cream becomes milk, Sweet and Low becomes Equal, and it's just a mess. 

Finally, my drink was ready and as I took that first sip, I was nervous but it all turned to relief and excitement when I realized this was a coffee religious experience. It was so good. I mean, beyond good. Incredible. I soon had to introduce others to it who were interested but scared to take the leap. They had the same reaction and wished they had tried it sooner. We tried cold brews elsewhere and while they were pretty good, Dunkin' definitely has the best. And it does not need any syrups, for the weight conscious. But, I will add a pump of caramel swirl syrup if I am in the mood. But, I will say this: the right person has to make it. I have have cold brews made by the wrong coffee maker and you can tell they just do not take pride in beverage making. They do not want me to have that first sip moment. 

Now that the $2 deal is over, the price is back up to $3+ but trust me, it is totally worth it. They have an energy cold brew that I am a little nervous to try but this is next on my list. Try it and let me know!!

*And yes, I drink iced year-round!

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of imdb.com When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of amazon.com With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
