Everyone loves Starbucks holiday drinks. We wait for the first sign of fall for our favorite pumpkin spice flavored drinks to come rolling in. The same warm feeling we get drinking a pumpkin spice latte can be considered equal to the feeling of excitement we get when a rerun of "Suite Life of Zack and Cody" or "That's So Raven" pops up on Disney Channel. Here are six of your favorite holiday Starbucks drinks as those beloved 2000s Disney Channel TV hits!

1. Pumpkin spice latte as "Kim Possible"

The OG of lattes, you can't deny a pumpkin spiced latte even when you hate pumpkin. "Kim Possible" is undeniably one of the best Disney shows, still, in 2017 we dress up as the icon for Halloween and sing her theme song. Kim Possible is a character you can't forget or would even try to. "Doesn't matter where, doesn't matter when I will be there to the very end" just like the theme song says pumpkin spice lattes will always be there to pick you up during those fall days.

2. Eggnog latte as "Hannah Montana"

Everyone loved Hannah Montana although she showcased lying to your friends all while being a huge pop star was possible. I still don't understand how no one made the connection it was just a wig? Anyways...without a doubt, it was still one of the best shows of its times but just like Miley Stewarts' deceiving closet, she is an eggnog latte...people will say it's amazing, but we all know eggnog is disgusting. It's only better when its altered with liquor (BAM WIG CONNECTION).

3. Salted caramel mocha as "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody"

Zack and Cody although were sweethearts most of the time these boys knew how to get into some trouble. All making us feel bad for their poor mother....Like a salted caramel mocha the boys were a perfect mix of salty and sweet. There was nothing better than the comedic relief we got from Mr. Mosby and his constant worry about the hotel lobby, but like this latte, Zack's plots are a classic.

4. Gingerbread latte as "That's So Raven"

Just like Raven in "That's So Raven", this unique drink reminds us of the good times we spend with our families during the holiday season. Cory and Raven had the best television sibling rivalry written to date. Although views weren't so strong once Cory got his own show on Disney, "That's so Raven" is undeniably one of the most memorable shows Disney has ever produced. It was the only "live action" show on the channel that featured lead African American characters and it often pushed the limits showcasing strong feminist views and even challenging political topics. Hand downs "That's So Raven" is one of the best Disney channel show to date just as sweet and spicy as a gingerbread latte.

5. Caramel brulee latte as "Life with Derek"

A Disney channel classic that is often forgotten, but by far one of the better shows during the time. Showcasing an almost Brady bunch dynamic showcasing a family mixed by the kids' parents marrying each other, the sibling rivalry was strong in this show. Showcasing some of the sweetest moments between two early teens learning to be siblings and always being there to back each other up when needed. The carmel brulee latte is all tied together with the delicious brulee syrup that is to die for, just like Casey and Derek's relationship it adds the needed spice to create a dynamic pairing.

6. Peppermint Mocha as "Lizzie McGuire"

Now, this may just be my bias opinion pairing my favorite holiday drink with my favorite Disney channel show of the time, "Lizzie McGuire", but it's also the perfect pairing. The addition of peppermint is just like Lizzie's cartoon alter ego, adding her sarcastic comments to everyday happenings was the perfect addition to the already comical tv show. Mixing the real struggles of middle school life with the sarcastic commentary brought the best addition to your after school tv binge. Watching Lizzie McQuire was the best ending to a long day in elementary school just like peppermint mochas are to the long year.

Be kind to your baristas, they can make you some pretty great drinks. With the temperature rising and the days getting longer, it's approaching the time to find your summer staple to keep you cool (and caffeinated) over the next few months.

Starbucks offers a wide variety of cold beverages that really hit the spot during the summer months, from espresso drinks to fraps, smoothies, teas and refreshers. As a Starbucks barista, I've had the opportunity to taste most drinks on the menu and receive feedback from customers on the do's and don'ts of cold beverages.

While this is not an exhaustive list, I pulled together some of my favorites to give you, the "Ultimate Starbucks Iced Beverage Bucket List for 2017" that you MUST try this season:

1. Pink Drink

Three words: Basic white girl. If you want a photogenic drink that tastes like a Starburst and makes baristas happy, the Pink Drink is for you. It's a pretty simple beverage... this Strawberry Acai Refresher combined with Coconutmilk is sure to satisfy your hipster needs.

2. Iced White Mocha

This sinfully sweet iced espresso drink is not only one of the most popular beverages on the menu, but sure to wake you up at any time of day. Jazz it up by asking for half white chocolate, half mocha sauce, topped with a mocha drizzle, and you've got yourself an Iced Tuxedo Mocha!

3. Doubleshot on Ice

If nothing else, this quick pick-me-up looks classy while giving you the energy boost you need to get through the day. With two shots of espresso, a bit of milk and classic syrup, this drink is easy to enjoy in little time... it's like a caffeine I.V.!

4. Iced Caramel Machiatto

Surprise, surprise... Caramel Machiattos are actually made with vanilla syrup. Nonetheless, these espresso-topped beverages are absolutely delicious at any time of year, but summer calls for ice! Want to change things up? Ask your barista to make it with half vanilla syrup, half toffee nut syrup to make an Iced Salted Caramel Machiatto!

5. Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher

A sister to the Pink Drink, the Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher is a fruit juice-blackberry combo that makes for a pretty chilled beverage to enjoy on the go. The caffeine content is minimal, making it a great option for any time of day.


6. Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew

Cold Brew is basically Starbucks' version of a smoother-tasting iced coffee with more caffeine. The Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew is a standard drink topped with vanilla-flavored heavy cream to create a sweet taste and a marbled appearance in the beverage. Want something with flavor, but not in the mood for vanilla? Try the Toasted Coconut Cold Brew!


7. Mango Black Tea Lemonade

The Mango Black Tea Lemonade is one of the most popular drinks on the menu. Iced Teavana tea mixed with mango syrup and lemonade makes for the perfect combination

8. Iced Chai Tea Latte

Iced Chais - sound so sophisticated, yet so simple to make. If you order this drink, there is a 10/10 chance that your barista will love you for it. Milk mixed with a sweet and spicy chai syrup makes for a classy drink that can be enjoyed at any time of day.


9. Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Machiatto

The identifying characteristic that makes a macchiato, well, a macchiato is that the espresso shots are poured on top of the milk and flavoring. Starbucks' Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Machiatto is a combination of cinnamon dolce syrup and almondmilk topped with espresso shots, a caramel drizzle and a cinnamon dolce topping to create a delicious dairy-free option in the macchiato family.

10. Sunset Refresher

This secret menu drink is fairly simple to make with a cool lime base, lemonade, lime slices, and ice topped with black tea. When finished, the drink will have an ombré appearance that makes it totally picture-worthy!

11. Iced Caffè Americano

Calling all espresso lovers: Americanos are a Starbucks signature. The drink itself is pretty simple - espresso and water topped with ice, but if you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can mix things up with a flavored syrup. This drink is sure to wake you right up, no matter the time of day.

12. Strawberry Lemonade

Want something cold but not feeling coffee or a frap? Frozen Strawberry Lemonade is definitely worth a try! While this drink is not on the menu, most baristas are happy to make it upon request. Just ask for a combination of strawberry flavoring, lemonade, and ice blended together for a slushie-like beverage!

5 Things You Need To Know About Thinx Underwear

Those of you with a uterus, listen up.

I first heard about Thinx underwear two years ago while on a subway in Washington DC. I thought the whole idea of leakproof underwear sounded a bit too much like diapers and brushed the product aside. Fast forward two years, my mom states that she is going to buy a pair to try and offered to get me one too. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, I decided to give it a try. I'm sure glad I did!

If you're not familiar with Thinx allow me to explain. It's a company that prides themselves on creating underwear specifically designed for individuals to wear during their periods. Looking at the reviews, everyone seemed to love them, and after trying them out for myself, I must say I like them quite a lot. Here are a few important things to know about Thinx underwear.

1. It doesn’t always replace your pads/tampons

Thinx may not replace tampons, but it can help cut back the amount you use.

https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/scotland-free-tampons-shutterstock.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=618&h=410&crop=1

I learned this the hard way that if you have a heavy flow, you can't wear Thinx on its own. If you have a light flow, you could get away with only wearing these, but for us poor souls with heavy flows, I recommend making these your new period underwear. You never have to worry about any leaks, even at night!

2. They don't stain

Behold! No bloodstains!

If you leak onto this underwear, fear not. Merely rinse them in the sink and then throw them in the wash like normal and boom! Clean underwear. No more ugly stained underwear to keep in the corner of your drawer.

3. There’s a bunch of cute designs/colors

There's something for everyone!

One thing I must say about Thinx is that they have a wide variety of options. There are several different cuts, and almost all of them come in different colors options as well. They seem to be introducing new colors all the time, so keep an eye out for one you like.

4. They are super comfy!

These feel just like normal underwear.

When I got my pair, I was worried that this underwear would feel like wearing a diaper or something else uncomfortable, but that was not the case at all! This underwear when you're wearing it feels like normal underwear, and while you're washing it, it feels like a swimsuit.

5. They donate to a good cause

Everyone should have access to period products. Period.

https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0795/1599/t/248/assets/menstrual-equity-slider-1.jpg?226286

For every pair of underwear that you buy, the company donates a pair to someone in need. It seems like most are sent to developing countries where women do not have access to proper menstruation hygiene products. In addition to this, Thinx was designed to help cut back the number of disposable pads entering landfills. They designed this underwear to be a more sustainable alternative for people with periods!
