I was very happy to come across a few holiday ornaments at Starbucks recently - they are always so cute and I love seeing what the designs are each year! I really like the holiday cup design this year, and the mini ornament version is super cute. The "local" Starbucks theme is also one of the holiday designs again this year, and I love how the Maryland one has Maryland blue crabs and the preppy monogram design! I look forward to seeing what other designs are available this year as they continue to roll out their holiday items!

In the US Thanksgiving is coming up in one week, but I started celebrating a little early with these November cupcake flavors at Georgetown Cupcake :o)
The Chocolate Caramel Swirl cupcake is a new flavor for this year - Valrhona chocolate and dulce de leche caramel marbled cupcake topped with a whipped Callebaut chocolate ganache and salted caramel “twist” frosting. It's a great combination of chocolate and caramel in both the frosting and the cake, and looks very pretty with the swirls throughout. The Thanksgiving Chocolate cupcake is the Chocolate & Vanilla cupcake from the daily menu with a fondant Turkey decoration on top. It's a nice subtle way to get excited for Thanksgiving, haha. Both flavors would be lovely additions to your Thanksgiving dessert table!

The Hot Chick'n sandwich at Shake Shack isn't new by this point, but I hadn't been able to get around to trying it until recently. I'm so glad that I did eventually, because this was AWESOME! The regular Chick'n Shack sandwich is great already, and with the added spices and hot sauce slaw, this is a delicious stack of flavors for anyone that likes spicy food. It's probably better that I don't have immediate access to a Shake Shack from home, because I'd get this way too often haha. That being said, I hope they keep it on the menu at least a little bit longer so I can have it again before it's off the menu!
