For the most part, New Year’s resolutions are a joke and almost everyone will have given up by mid-February at which time, we can finally use the ellipticals at the gym again. One Seattle woman, however, is living every girl’s fantasy. She just fulfilled her 2013 resolution to eat and drink nothing but Starbucks for an entire year. You read that right: an entire year. This included all major holidays and her birthday. She even went as far to dress as the Starbucks mermaid for Halloween and you’re all welcome for that brilliant costume idea.
The woman, who goes by the name “Beautiful Existence” (obviously), set her sights high when she planned to devote a year of her life to only Starbucks and other brands, such as Tazo and Teavana, that are owned by the company. The guy from ‘Super Size Me’ only lasted 30 days and he spent the majority of that time ralphing, so Beautiful knows what she’s doing in the world. She broke up the year by giving herself monthly themes such as weight loss or low-cost budgeting. If she were smart, she would have dedicated the entire fall season to PSLs and nothing else.
If you plan to take note and use this resolution in 2014, Beautiful has provided a daily breakdown of the entire journey which includes photos, blog posts, and a year-long recap video on her website, for1yearofmylife.com. She may also have the most delicious-looking Instagram recorded to date. She even went as far as to gave a financial breakdown of her venture if you care to follow in caffeine-induced footsteps. It’ll cost you a hefty $600 per month. A small price to pay though to be living in pure bliss for 365 days straight.
This wasn’t Beautiful’s first year-long challenge. Other year-long resolutions include shopping exclusively at Goodwill, or using every tip from the magazine Parents. The blogger has actually mapped out her next twenty year-long challenges, all centering around different businesses or causes in the Pacific Northwest. This year’s goal is to “learn everything recreational sport,” which will prove itself useful after a year’s worth of skinny vanilla lattes.
