Down a Rabbit-Hole into Starbucks

Down a Rabbit-hole into Starbucks

I absolutely adore the coffeehouses of Central London. I love to watch the hustle and bustle of city life from the comfort of my warm, if slightly worn, armchair inside the relaxed atmosphere of the shop whilst sipping on an iced Mocha Frappe (with cream of course). Alice stumbled upon a tea-party in Wonderland at the end of her rabbit-hole, I discovered the wonders of Starbucks! It is the most obvious hide-away from a busy lifestyle and the cold Autumn/Winter days! Is it weird that I love to drink Frappes even during cold weather?

When the weather gets a little chilly and it starts to get dark early my boyfriend and I like to spend the majority of our time sitting at a Starbucks talking, laughing and relaxing. Give us a cosy little corner near the big glass windows Starbucks is well known for and we’ll be there until closing time!



Though I may be a self-confessed Starbucks addict, I generally cannot stand plain hot coffee beverages. That being said I absolutely adore iced coffee and flavoured coffee drinks. However during times of utter stress I will drink weak coffee (oh who am I kidding? A mug of hot milk with a teaspoon of coffee granules and lots of sugar)  just to keep me going through the day and half the night. So in the spirit of procrastinating I have written a letter to my dear inanimate friend Coffee to relieve the stresses of my mind. Okay, I have procrastinated long enough. Time to get back to this damned dissertation! *Feeling determined*
