10 Reasons Why Basic Bitches Love: Starbucks

We know everyone loves a delicious, frothy, flavourful pick me up on a cold day, and who could say no to a refreshing Iced Passion Tea Lemonade in the summer heat?  Anyone can appreciate a beverage of some sort during any season of the year, but basic bitches just can’t seem to keep their Starbucks off the internet.

10 Reasons Why Basic Bitches Love: Starbucks

1. But first, coffee.

Before we can even get into this list, all basic bitches must ensure that coffee has been consumed prior to any kind of brain activity can ensue. The only reason she knew what coffee to order this morning was because she does it every morning. She’s actually friends with the baristas now, so really, placing an order isn’t even necessary.

2. As much as routines are comforting, Starbucks likes to surprise basic bitches every once in a while with seasonal excitement.

It’s not everyday you get the pleasant surprise of a colourful Starbucks cup to brighten your day. Starbucks lovers everywhere get over the top excited about the seasonal cups every time they come out, no matter what they look like. There’s probably a 1:350 ratio of Tim Hortons seasonal cup posts vs. Starbucks seasonal cup posts on Instagram.

3. Even if the cup is white, it’s share-worthy whether your name was spelt right or wrong.

Starbucks is known for spelling it’s guests names wrong, and it’s pretty much just become a running joke. People are much less offended than they are amused, and Starbucks is seriously #winning with this. Who really doesn’t know how to spell Jessica? The barista that chose to write “Jhesika” on your cup. Yeah. It’s a thing. #classic. But if they did spell it right, it’s like, the biggest deal. #firsttimeforeverything

Haven’t Instagrammed in a while? Need to update your Facebook page to get someone’s attention? Tumblr lacking personal posts? Good thing you stopped at Starbucks this morning, because your drink is beautiful as ever and your iPhone camera also happens to work. And hey, if you delete the few awkward selfies from this morning, there’s space for a quick bevvy pic.

5. Sometimes the baristas write you nice messages, and it seriously impacts your day.

It’s kind of cool how a stranger saying the simplest thing, whether it’s actually personal or not, can have you holding back a grin all day long. “Keep smiling, you’re beautiful,” or any few, simple words can really set a positive tone for the rest of your day. Occasionally, a barista will leave a cute message on your cup. And even more occasionally, the barista will be cute. Hope you winged your eyeliner today, miss.

6. It’s the perfect accessory.

Winter, spring, summer, fall- it doesn’t matter what season we’re in or what you’re wearing, Starbucks looks good on everything. Having a kick-ass morning and feeling like you’re going to get shit done? Good for you, that coffee is accenting that vibe. Stayed up all night, and had to opt for a comfy-cool-hair up look? No problem, Starbucks is showing that you’re still working and can’t stop just yet.

To a certain degree, being a Starbucks gold member is pretty cool. It shows you aren’t just grabbing a drink because the people you’re with suggested stopping at Starbucks. You go there, you know what you want, you have privileges… You’re one of them. Walking into a Starbucks for the first time can be daunting. Remember when you were 11, and you and your friends walked to Starbucks after school? You probably ordered a medium strawberry something, and got corrected and felt intimidated. Well, no longer are you the amateur my friend. You are a member.

8. Beverages are the perfect selfie companion.

Trying to pull off a kissy face? Kiss your drink. Trying to do a bit of a pout, but it’s getting ridiculous? Throw your drink under your chin. Want to smile, but all your other selfies have the same face? Smile about your coffee. Who’s going to question that? An insane person. Because everyone knows you don’t mess with a basic bitch and her PSL.

9. The same goes for photos of anything, really.

That brand new notebook you bought? The novel you’re reading and want to tell everyone about, but in a subtle way? The magazine that just came in, and you’re sitting in a coffee shop reading it like a diva with all the time in the world? Throw in your Starbucks cup, and it’s an instant casual-cool-I’m just on a coffee break-doing my own thing-there are five subjects in this photo so you can’t single out just one- kinda deal.

Sure, those few girls on your feed that have cute glass mugs and are sitting in hipster coffee shops with no wifi reading books that are about some deep philosophical theories are cool, but who has the time to travel to some random place on Queen West that may or may not serve drinks up to par with a tasty Starbucks frap? Having three Starbucks within a three minute radius of almost everywhere a basic bitch could be at any given time is definitely working out for them.
