A little salty sweet caramel in the form of pretty shoes



I heard that Starbucks has a new hot chocolate flavor, Salted Caramel. For some reason this sounds utterly delicious to me and I can't wait to try it. Hey Starbucks, can we have that in a latte? Yum. These lovely caramel brown patent leather sling backs from Nine West remind me of that awesome new flavor, and I found myself salivating all day, thinking about drinking a nice hot cup of caramel delightfulness.

Anyhow, we had another two layoffs today, with one of them still being a mystery. Which means some poor soul who's off on vacation right now will come back to work and be promptly laid off. It makes you sick to live through all this, you know? We all dodged this latest bullet, so onward we go, waiting for the next.

This is why the shoes go on...a little dose of frothy sweetness in the middle of all that sour.

Of course you're kidding, silly! And I'm serious, I don't think I'll run out of shoes for our blog, ha ha!

You had pretty shoes on today, too :)

Salted Caramel at Starbucks? Ooh- sounds awesome and decadent!

And I know what you mean about feeling sick over the way things are right now---there's a tension in the air that is so sobering...I'm so glad to have my favourite blogs to make me smile :)

Cute post! I've had the salty carmel hot chocolate from Starbucks and at first I thought it was weird tasting (as I am a Chai drinker), but it grew on me and I'd order it again.

Sorry about the work stuff, we have that majorly going on at my place to. Hang in there!

The work stuff sounds hectic! In SA we have crazy regulations that prevent layoffs. We have some of the most advanced labour laws in the world! It has its ups and downs. There is no way that someone will come in and just be laid off here.

I love the heels on the caramel shoes the most.

The salted part of the new drink makes me think twice about it... caramel and salt just don't work in my mind.

i stopped by starbucks before class the other night and saw that they offered the caramel and sea salt hot chocolate, and had to try it, very good but sweet. so if you're in the mood for sweet and warm, definitely get one! i'd order it again too. oh and when it comes to chocolate, we've carried a few pieces that had burnt caramel and hawaiin sea salt chocolates and they are totally amazing, one of our biggest sellers by far. you get addicted to the flavor. and i love those shoes!
