10 Signs You're Dangerously Addicted To Strawberry Acai Refreshers

Let's face it, it's the new "basic" drink.

I have a problem. A serious problem that my parents have even begun to notice. I am addicted to Strawberry Refreshers. Not just Strawberry Refreshers, but Strawberry Refreshers with lemonade and light ice. I added the light ice in hopes of getting more to drink. I'm not completely sure if it's working, but it is still worth the try.

I don't like coffee. I have tried and tried again to like the taste. And without fail, I end up wishing I had never taken a sip. Before the time of SAR (Strawberry Acai Refreshers), I would get frappuccinos or hot chocolate, the non-coffee-drinker's go-to. And then, Starbucks had their best idea yet and presented us with Strawberry Refreshers.

Sure, I am addicted, but I don't regret it. I absolutely love the taste. It is refreshing, cool and gives me all the caffeine I need to get through my day. Maybe you relate to me or maybe you don't, either way here are some occurrences that have happened that have confirmed my addiction.

You get a Strawberry Refresher every day without fail.

I have been in college for three weeks, and out of the three weeks, I have failed twice to get a SAR. But, twice I have gotten it twice in one day, so it basically makes up for it right? Pretty soon here the workers are going to remember my name and order.

You get it in a trenta.

Yes, my friends, trentas do exist. My lovely BFF told me about them, and since then I've said goodbye to venti and hello to trenta. If you are unsure what a trenta is, it is one size larger than a venti. If you have an addiction like me though, I probably should not have told you this information.

You bank account reads: Starbucks, Starbucks, Starbucks. 

It is the only thing that I buy these days.

You walk out of your way just to go to a Starbucks.

I could be all the way across campus, but I will do whatever it takes to get my Strawberry Refresher.

You think of everything in terms of the price of a Strawberry Refresher.

You buy a shirt for $20 and think that you could have bought four Refreshers instead.

When they run out and you say, "I'm going to die!"

This actually happened.

Your parents tell you that you need an intervention.

They said that I am addicted and that there needed to be an intervention. I replied with, "There are worse things I could be addicted to."

It's an accomplishment when you go a day without one. 

I told my friends I went a day without one, and they all cheered.

The thought of having one gets you through the day.

Do I need to say more?

 You get upset on a road trip if you don't stop at Starbucks to get one.

Every trip needs Starbucks!!!

Now, if you need me, I'll be in line at Starbucks getting, you guessed it, another Strawberry Acai Refresher.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.

HBO

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
