I tried the new Starbucks Pineapple Refresher

  I had stars that were going to expire so I decided to try the new refresher. I have seen some reviews of people that love it and others of people that hate it. It’s often sold out but I was in a location where they had it.  I am not really a fan of pineapple flavours. I like other refreshers from Starbucks and I love passion fruit so thought it might be good. There are options to add coconut milk or lemonade. I always get coconut milk in my coffee but I don’t like it in refreshers and I always like lemonade. The drink at first seemed okay but it had a strange bitter aftertaste after each sip. I am not sure the addition of the lemonade made it like that but my mom and I both didn’t like it. It was drinkable but not something I would order again. I will stick to the the Mango Dragon Fruit refresher as my go to refresher from Starbucks.  Let me know if you have tried it in the comments or on Instagram @livingottawalocal.

My first time ordering a pizza without cheese




I have been a vegetarian for over thirty years. Over the last year I have been transitioning to a vegan diet. 

I used to think there is no way I could give up dairy but with all the vegan products on the market now it’s been easy. If I do eat dairy I can feel the effects on my body. My stomach bloats, my face breakouts, and I get tired. 

There are many pizza places in my area that have vegan pizza’s with vegan cheese which I have had. I haven’t had anything amazing that I crave. I find that you often have to buy a large pizza to get the vegan option so I prefer to only get pizza from a restaurant when I am really craving it. I have satisfied my cravings with homemade pizza, vegan frozen pizza, and vegan pizza from cobbs bakery.

When I was vegetarian hearthstone pizza was a favourite place. It’s one price for whatever toppings you want. I haven’t been there since changing to a vegan diet because I wasn’t sure about ordering pizza with no cheese. I ordered tomato sauce and all the vegetables. It’s great I really enjoyed this pizza. 

I had some vegan Parmesan at home so I added to a slice to see if I would like it better. I do like it better with the vegan cheese but it’s still good without anything. I will definitely be ordering pizza with no cheese again in the future.
