The Starbucks Holiday Cups Are Back This Week, And They're Way More Christmassy Than Last Year

And there's a reusable one that won't make you feel like you're singlehandedly ruining the environment.

Wave goodbye to your PSL, because Starbucks just announced the release of their much-awaited and debated holiday cups, which are set to debut in stores across the United States and Canada on Thursday, November 7 (A.K.A. tomorrow!!!).

Christmas fanatics mustn't worry though, because this year's holiday cups will be a far cry from the disaster that was 2015. No, the Starbucks mermaid won't be chilling on solid red cups this year, prompting customers to claim Starbucks is "waging a war on Christmas."

This year, the coffee shop is rolling out four different versions of the holiday cup, all four of which are equally adorable and will make you want to jam out to Christmas music, even if you're basically the Grinch. All four cups feature festive decorations and are way less basic than some we've seen in previous years. Here's a breakdown of each design.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have the "Polka Dots" cup, which is an adorable red cup adorned with festive green polka dots, reminiscent of those ornaments you've already bought for this year's Christmas tree. There's the "Merry Dance" cup which is white and covered with the words "Merry" and "Coffee" (this one's probably my favorite out of the four). Then there's the "Merry Stripes" cup, which is a green cup covered in white, vertical text and meant to look like "vintage wrapping paper," according to Starbucks. Last but not least, we have the "Candy Cane Stripe" which looks like a candy cane topped with the Starbucks logo and "watermark."

According to Starbucks, this year's cups are meant to give us the feeling of "unwrapping a Christmas present," which we appreciate, given that we'll have to wait for another 48 days before we can unwrap actual Christmas gifts...*sigh*

But the best part of this whole ordeal is that the Starbucks' reusable holiday cup is also making a comeback this season for a limited time only, so eco-conscious coffee addicts can also show off their holiday pride. The reusable holiday cup will be available at participating Starbucks' in the U.S. and Canda on November 7, while supplies last. However, you'll only be able to get one if you order a Starbucks holiday beverage to go along with it. But given the yummy selection of this year's holiday beverages, which include the chestnut praline latte and eggnog latte, we don't mind!

If you are one the lucky customers who gets their hands on this cheery reusable cup before it goes out of stock, make sure you bring it back to Starbs before January 6 to get 50 cents off a grande (16-ounce) holiday beverage.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
