Sometimes its nice to mix things up and take a break from routine, try something new. Starbucks recently asked me to give my day a twist, so thats exactly what I did..
Despite living out of the city, I spend most of my time in London whether its at meetings, events or seeing friends. Throughout these days I sit on multiple tube trains and let the laziness overcome getting off a stop earlier to enjoy a little bit of the fresh air and escape the stuffy, overcrowded atmosphere.
So one day when I headed to the city, rather than sitting on the tube all of the way to St Pauls for a meeting I got off at Bank and walked through the streets so I could look up at the beautiful architecture and take in the sights (while people watching of course). London is such a great city with every tube stop giving you a new atmosphere so its worth having a walk around instead of putting yourself in the over crowded tubes time after time.
To save myself some money I also picked up an iced Starbucks 'caffê americano with milk' coffee instead of buying myself the usual caramel soya latte (yep, I always get the same). I love the creamy flavour of chilled coffee and normally drink the Caffê Americano before a workout, but they are perfect for throwing into my bag for drinking on commute too. If you haven't already seen, Starbucks have a great chilled coffee range that come in easy-drink bottles with a straw for on the go. You can pick them up from Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose and other known retailers for only £1.59 (cheaper than a hot coffee too).
