And then she never went to Starbucks again.

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

The Starbucks Challenge for the woman named Beautiful Existence is complete! And I didn’t even know it had started.

She says she did it because, “Where are the WOMEN challenging themselves in the world? Where are the effects being shown on a woman’s culture? A woman’s family & children? … Where is HER VOICE on how an international company is directly or indirectly impacting everything from her waistline to her bottom line and every other woman’s, man’s, child’s, societies and planets world with their presence?” Meaning, that guy that ate McDonald’s every day and Jared from Subway had made their mark on the world with conspicuous fast food consumption, and she was wondering where the ladies were at in these challenges. She maintains that her health is actually better after this year-long experiment.

The cost averaged $500 – $600 a month just for her, not for the rest of her family, which is impressively high (I spend max $200 on food a month for me and my hombre in NYC). Coupled with her ideology and reasoning, I fail to see how this is a successful or groundbreaking stunt. I guess, what I mean to say is… what’s the point? The feminism link is weak and she’s super stoked on a major company that doesn’t need any free help, really. Maybe the happiness factor can be explained by the wicked caffeine fix? Am I the only one missing it here?
