Earlier this month Starbucks Canada partnered with the San Francisco based Parisian patisserie – La Boulange, to launch the Starbucks La Boulange menu. Having launched in the U.S. back in 2012, British Columbia and Ontario are two of the first provinces to get to try out the new artisan inspired pastry menu.
According to The Huffington Post: Starbucks Canada reps say the menu items, which they readily identify as “indulgences” at around 350 calories per item, have a new take on some of Starbucks’ original food offerings, like the loaf cakes and cookies. And since they want to focus on real ingredients, most of the new La Boulange pastries from French chef Pascal Rigo will feature only 100 per cent real butter.
My “Starbucks” experience the week of the Starbucks La Boulange launch in Toronto was fantastic! In the four different Starbucks I visited (yes I’m a little coffee obsessed), I was greeted with a smile (and pastry samples) by baristas in cute pink aprons. The coffee houses were decorated with pink accents from balloons, to floral centre pieces in celebration of Starbucks La Boulange coming to Canada.
What caught my eye the most? The new pink cardboard coffee sleeves! They are beyond cute therefore obviously inspired my next nail art project.
Using a few new polishes from the Color Club neon pastel collection (swatches coming soon), I was able to re-create the pink and white doily-effect on my nails. I used a doily type nail decal from Snail Vinyls along with their tetris vinyls to create my ring finger accent.
Aren’t my Starbucks La Boulange inspired nails cute?
Until next time,
