Forecast This; Anorexic Starbucks Drinks That Will Change Your Life.

Carolina Herrera, Fall 2014 RTW

Have you checked the forecast? Four days of rain coming up here in Southern California. That is basically our equivalent of the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004, same year Carolina Herrera debuted her Fall RTW collection, inspired by the old school luxury of some of the grandest European ski resorts, that rocked the runway like the 9.0 magnitude quake.

Obviously, the sudden puddles - and a late night prior - called for a mandatory Starbucks run this morning. I decided to get a little creative (as always) with my barista...and ended up walking out with a $6.05 latte.

WTF. Somebody take away my gold card now.

How did I do this, you might ask? Venti, plus the espresso shots, minus the syrup shots, soy. Cha-ching, cha-ching. Instead of starting with the expensive $4 plus latte and removing all of the sugar and fat, start with the skinny and add in the flavors. It was time to revert back to my anorexic latte ways...both for my body and for my wallet.

"Skinny lattes are for fat people. 
You heard it here first." 
- says C.M., 
my brilliant soul sista and diva extraordinaire.


That being said...here are 5 Anorexic Starbucks Drinks that will change your life, your bod, and your wallet. Order up, darling...

2. Anorexic Actress Vanilla Hammer Head.

*Note: you can make an anorexic latte any flavor by using any sugar free syrups in substitute for the hazelnut. During the holidays I love to make an anorexic peppermint latte by using the SF peppermint syrup. 'Tis the season for skinny.
