II knowâŚ Summer has left our doorsteps. Weâve been experiencing rains these past days that I canât help myself feel a little down. I feel a bit sentimental usually when it rains, with no actual reason. (LOL) I need things that can take me back to my summer cheerfulness or just make me reminisce about it. Imagine sipping a drink, and as soon as the sweet colored liquid adjoin your taste buds, it takes you back to that place: the super exciting summer adventure perhaps or maybe at the beach under the shade of a beach umbrella, worrying nothing.
Good thing thereâs Starbucks though! (LOL) The summer-loving coffee shop has an array of treats that will provide just what I need! I assume you too, right? The treats are added with unique twists that define us, the Starbucks customers here in the Philippines. Get acquainted with them below! And remember the food and beverages has a promotion period of June 7 to July 25, 2016 only.
