Starbucks Red Holiday Cups: Designed By YOU!

Starbucks Red Holiday Cups: Designed By YOU!

Last December Starbucks encouraged customers to share their own creative designs on their red cups on Instagram.

Starbucks Red Cups have been a staple indicator of the holiday season since 1977.

This year, on November 10th, Starbucks released their 13 Red Holiday Cups designed by you, the customer!

Starbucks global chief marketing officer, Sharon Rothstein, said, "We hope that this year’s red holiday cup designs express the shared spirit of the holidays as told by our customers."

Last December Starbucks encouraged customers to share their own creative designs on their red cups on Instagram.

In just 8-days, customers from 13 countries sent in over 1,200 cup designs they created themselves. Starbucks then asked a small group of customers to send in their red cup design so they could evaluate it for production potential, keeping the designs as authentic to the creator as possible.

In the end, Starbucks selected 13 unique Red Cup designs that came from 6 different countries, each is a part of this year's holiday cup collection. All 25,000 Starbucks will be featuring these cups in 75 countries, celebrating the unique cultures and creativity of people from around the world.

Art is an unspoken language, it defies all barriers and speaks to each and every one of us in an impactful way.

Thank you Starbucks, for encouraging acceptance, love and appreciation of people all of the world this Holiday Season. Together we can enjoy hot cocoa, while admiring the beautiful, creative minds of our Brothers & Sisters around the globe!

My Top 6 Toppings on Pizza

Yes, I wrote this while hungry.

Pizza is, in my opinion, God's gift to humans. There's not a lot to dislike about it and is always a staple to have when there's a party or it's a date night with Netflix. In honor of pizza being the best, I've decided to make a list of my top six toppings.

1. Meat Lover's

Any kind of pizza with lots of meat on it so probably going to be my favorite.

2. Ham and mushroom

It's simple but not too simple.

3. Pepperoni

Pepperoni is a classic which is why I like it so much.

4. Cheese

I like my cheese pizza hot with extra cheese.

5. Margherita

I don't have this kind of pizza often just because it's usually not a favorite but when I do have it, it's heaven.

6. Chicken and bacon

I've only had chicken and bacon pizza once but the one time I had it, I fell in love.

PSA I wrote this while starving which gave me the idea to write about my favorite food.

5 Perfect Home-Cooked Meals That All College Students Miss

The lingering smell of the kitchen.

The dining hall is great when it is 2 a.m. and you really want some fries, but other than that it's a dreaded trip you're forced to make three times a day. Here are some of the most missed home-cooked meals from the typical college student.

1. Homemade lasagna

The taste of a perfectly crisp layer of cheese over tomato sauce and noodles.

2. Tacos

Everyone misses a good taco topping buffet.

3. Grilled vegetables

If you experience the rare occasion of having grilled vegetables at college it is not the same. There is nothing better than grilled vegetables on your home barbeque.

4. Steak

The only meat most people will even go near in the dining hall is chicken (if even). Coming home to a grilled steak after months at college is an amazing feeling - your taste buds will want to explode!

5. Fresh muffins

You never appreciate fresh muffins until you don't have them. The taste and sensation of biting into a warm muffin is one quite indescribable.
