Tall & Skinny? Hot & Sweet? 50 Shades – Pick Yours….

Ok ladies, I’m guessing that all of you have by now heard of the guilty pleasure on women’s night stands across the country – Fifty Shades of Grey. Just in case you’ve been hiding out in a mountain cave for the past few months, and haven’t heard of it – it’s a trilogy of books, featuring some rather racy content that women have made into a crazy-popular brand. Well, there’s also another set of “shades” to take a look at, that are just as hot and steamy as your favorite books….

50 shades of I.D. - What's Yours?Yes, that’s right ladies – hold onto your skirts – it’s time to talk about “your shade” – when it comes to the 50 shades of I.D, which one is yours? International Delight, those amazingly talented peeps that make my favorite iced coffees and creamers, want to know how YOU drink your drink? Do you like it tall, dark, and hot? Maybe you’re more of a skinny? Do you like a lot, or just a little? {I’m talking creamer, silly.} As for me, my choice changes depending on the time of day…

  • Morning: I usually start the day with something like I.D. Coffee Shade #4 – “Sip Tease.” Strong, hot, with just  hint of sweetness. Without coffee I can’t function or act like an adult, so I have to start things off with a mug that packs a kick.
  • Early Afternoon: Then, mid-morning-ish, after I’ve had a late light breakfast, I usually am in the mood for something a little softer, sweeter, more mellow. Like I.D. Coffee Shade #15 – “Be still, my caffeinated heart.” I brew hot coffee, and add more of my fave creamer – this time of year, it’s totally, hands-down, Pumpkin Pie Spice. {Did you know you can BAKE with I.D. creamers too? See my Chocolate & Pumpkin Spice Swirl.}
  • Later on: This is the time of day that I’m usually running on adrenaline. I’m writing, posting, emailing, and working #LikeaBoss. I’m on a high from the coffee, but need to keep it all going. But I usually switch from my brewed hot coffee of the early day to a glass {or seventeen} of the I.D Iced Coffee, mixed with one of their awesome creamers. Soooo good. So that puts my late afternoon I.D. Coffee Shade at more of a #36 – Buxom-Bodied Blonde. Dare I say, the Vanilla flavored iced coffee swirled with a bit of White Chocolate Mocha creamer, is pretty darn luscious??

And yes, I do sometimes drink coffee into the night time. Just because the sun goes down doesn’t mean I get to start winding down – this momma has to WORK. From attempting to keep the house clean while wrangling a busy toddler, running this site, my Frugal Living column on Examiner {have you subscribed to that? You’ll love it.} – plus other freelance work and consulting, I am going, going, going Coffee is the only thing that keeps me able to keep it up!
