National Coffee Milkshake Day is today so treat yourself to a grown up milkshake

What's not to like about a milkshake with a dose of caffeine? These days it seems like there is a national food day for everything but since I love food I figure why not celebrate them even if they seem a bit ridiculous! Today is National Coffee Milkshake Day. You can make a delicious, simple coffee milkshake at home, spike it with a little liqueur and make it a grown-up milkshake or go to your local Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks and order one - whatever strikes your fancy!

Bring the beach home with candles and room sprays that smell like sea air, salt water and Original Coppertone sunscreen

No matter the time of year, you can bring the smells of the beach home because perfumers have taken quintessentially summer smells like sea air and salt water and turned them into room scents. An exquisitely conceived little luxury, in evocative scents, each one-wick candle casts its golden glow for at least 35 hours, diffuses the highest quality fragrance and is stunningly encased in a high sheen metallic wood grain patterned gift box.

Burn Voyage is perfect to give, bring along, or simply stay where you are. Close your eyes and let Burn Voyage take you away...

Azure Seas Candle: Turquoise waters surround a tranquil island of smooth white sand and fragrant, lush, tropical flowers. Waves gently lap at the shore. A bird calls out now and then, otherwise silence ... Island Gardenia, Tuberose, Frangipani, Jasmine & Sea Mist ($26 at Beautyhabit)

Beach Glow Candle: Drive to the end of the road. Past the tourist beaches and the lifeguard towers. Hike in to a secret beach where tiare flowers and coconut palms meet the sand. Swing from a rope and plunge into the gentle bay. Feel the glow... Green Coconut, Vanilla & Tiare Flower ($26 at Beautyhabit)

Pink Sunset Candle: The day was good. Now palm trees stand in dark silhouette against a fluorescent sky. Plumeria scents the cooling air. The sun hangs like a giant golden orb blanketed in swirling pink slowly dropping off to sleep... Plumeria and Pikaki Blossoms, Gingerlily & Ocean Breeze  ($26 at Beautyhabit)

Sam's Sundae at Bi-Rite Creamery is one of the best ice cream sundaes around

With its temperate climate and abundance of farm-fresh dairy and produce, it's no surprise that California has the market cornered on some of the best ice creams in the country. Bi-Rite Creamery in San Francisco serves small-batch ice creams that vary according to season. Some of the innovative flavors are chocolate soy, roasted banana, salted caramel and lavender honey lavender that comes from hives less than a mile away from the store. Cones are made with organic ingredients, and seasonal desserts like the springtime sundae, made with crème fraiche ice cream, strawberries and sugar cookies, are impossible to resist. Bi-Rite uses compostable cups and spoons and local organic fruits.

Sam's Sundae is an adventure of sweetness like you've never been on before. It is made of chocolate ice cream with organic bergamot olive oil, maldon sea salt and hand-whipped whipped cream. The Bergamot olive oil is citrus-based so it is sweet and fruity and complements the chocolate really well. The indulgent chocolate ice cream is super intense like a frozen chocolate mousse or ganache and is made on the premises. To make their ice cream, they use Straus Family Creamery organic dairy, German cocoa, salt and vanilla. It is blended and churned well so that it is a true chocolate flavor and the sea salt then accentuates the sweet and chocolate flavors.

Forbes Traveler lists the Bi-Rite Creamery as one of America's Best Ice Creams. On the Food Network show, The Best Thing I Ever Ate - Sugar Rush, Aida Mollenkamp said Sam's Sundae was her favorite sugar rush.  

If you are in the San Francisco area, celebrate National Ice Cream Sundae Day with a Sam's Sundae at Bi-Rite Creamery or support your local ice cream parlor and indulge in a delicious ice cream sundae.
