Juicy Wednesday: Carrot Cake in a Glass

Happy Wednesday! Is it just me or is this week flying? Maybe I’m just excited for my Friday departure, but I’m glad that it’s already Wednesday 🙂

We’re off in two days and the mania of packing and tying up loose ends before we go, has begun. Amidst the chaos there is order, and while I joke that I might mysteriously miss my flight back to South Africa… I really think I will miss the old girl. It might have something to do with biltong

I like trying to keep it clean when I’m on vacation, but I definitely don’t deprive myself of the delicacies only available when one is on holiday. For example, I’m very excited to try BabycakesNYC (is there a cuter name for a bakery? no.) and get my Starbucks fix of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Until then, my mind is already in treat-mode and this Carrot Cake inspired juice is a good way quell an inner treat beast.
