The highly debated conversation on whether Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts is a better coffee destination has been going on since as long as I can remember. As a devoted Starbucks customer and lover of Venti Cool Lime Refreshers and Grande Flat Whites with Toffee Nut, I can not begin to fathom how someone would willingly choose to visit Starbucks' competitor. Here are 10 reasons why Starbucks hands down beats Dunkin Donuts:

1. Quality

Let's address the obvious: Dunkin Donuts coffee tastes burnt.

2. Homey atmosphere

Starbucks is THE prime study spot. How could you say no to their comfy couches?

3. Holiday cups

It's the most wonderful time of the year.

4. Free refills

As long as you stay in the store, you get a free refill on any drink.

5. Frappuccinos

Fraps fraps fraps.

6. Better service

The baristas are always super friendly and go above and beyond to please their customers.

7. More extensive menu

Caramel Macchiato, Chai Tea Latte, Hot Chocolate, "Customize Your Own Coffee/Latte/Tea." You name it, Starbucks got it.

8. Alright, business talk: Tighter margins

Starbucks operates its own stores, allowing for tighter margins than Dunkin Donuts (operating margins, profit margins, etc.)

9. Lactose intolerants welcome

Starbucks has dairy-free options.

And last, but not least...

10. Better food options

Does Dunkin Donuts have Cake Pops? I think not.

3 Reasons Why Step Dads Are Super Dads

I often hear a lot of people complaining about their step-parents and wondering why they think that they have any authority over them. Although I know that everyone has different situations, I will be the first to admit that I am beyond blessed to have a step dad. Yep, I said it. My life wouldn't be the same that it is not without him in it. Let me tell you why I think step dads are the greatest things since sliced bread.

1. They will do anything for you, literally.

My stepdad has done any and every thing for me. From when I was little until now. He was and still is my go-to. If I was hungry, he would get me food. If something was broken, he would fix it. If I wanted something, he would normally always find a way to get it. He didn't spoil me (just sometimes), but he would make sure that I was always taken care of.

2. Life lessons.

Yup, the tough one. My stepdad has taught me things that I would have never figured out on my own. He has stood beside me through every mistake. He has been there to pick me up when I am down. My stepdad is like the book of knowledge: crazy hormonal teenage edition. Boy problems? He would probably make me feel better. He just always seemed to know what to say. I think that the most important lesson that I have learned from my stepdad is: to never give up. My stepdad has been through three cycles of leukemia. He is now in remission, yay!! But, I never heard him complain. I never heard him worry and I never saw him feeling sorry for himself. Through you, I found strength.

3. He loved me as his own.

The big one, the one that may seem impossible to some step parents. My stepdad is not actually my stepdad, but rather my dad. I will never have enough words to explain how grateful I am for this man, which is why I am attempting to write this right now. It takes a special kind of human to love another as if they are their own. There had never been times where I didn't think that my dad wouldn't be there for me. It was like I always knew he would be. He introduces me as his daughter, and he is my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were able to show me what family is.

So, dad... thanks. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for being strong. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for loving my mom. Thanks for giving me a wonderful little sister. Thanks for being someone that I can count on. Thanks for being my dad.

I love you!

My Strange Obsession: Bibibop Addition

I am obsessed with Bibibop.

I am obsessed with Bibibop.

Sounds strange, right? But it's true.

For those of you who have never had the opportunity to experience Bibibop, Bibibop is an Asian Grill set up similar to Chipotle. You're able to go down the line of food, choosing a base (always go with the purple rice), hot toppings (they all slap), protein (the tofu is to die for), some cold toppings (a great way to try kale for the first time), and a sauce (if you don't get the Yum Yum sauce, you're weird.)

And, let me tell you, the final product is always delicious.

I hadn't been introduced to Bibibop until this past year, but once I tried it for the first time, I never looked back. Now I am constantly craving the taste of the Yum Yum sauce. I usually hit up Bibibop once every two weeks, but if I was rich, I would probably eat it every other day.

Though, admittedly, the prices are pretty good. And they celebrate meatless Mondays with 20% off to anyone who doesn't get meat in their bowl.

Plus, it's pretty healthy. Unlike most restaurants, like Chipotle, where your somewhat healthy meal can instantly become bad for you with the addition of something on the menu, Bibibop's entire menu provides nutritional value and offers gluten-free and vegan options.

Basically, Bibibop is the most underrated and most delicious restaurant in the world, which is why my obsession with it runs so deep. Although I would usually admit that obsessions are unhealthy, I think this one might be okay.
