What is your #StarbucksAtHome cup name? (tell us and win)
Each morning, I visit my local Starbucks Cafe around the corner from my house and start my day with a Starbucks. As most people know, I’m a big fan of the brand. A couple of years ago, there was a barista who started writing the wrong name on my cup. When he asked what my name was, he scribbled the name ‘Stever’ on my cup. Now, I don’t think ‘Stever’ is a name but that is what it said. Over the coming weeks, I got ‘Dan’, ‘Dale’, ‘Eric’, among others. I found it so funny that I posted them regularly on social media. It became a running joke as to what my name would be this week.
Here is my cup with ‘Dan’ on it beside a Bobbi Brown doll from a press kit.
Good news! You no longer have to line up at a Starbucks Cafe to get the wrong name on your cup. You can do it yourself at home with this #StarbucksAtHome customizable cup. Brew up a cup of True North, Caffe Verona or Pike Place (from your local grocery store) and write your very own #StarbucksAtHome wrong name. If your name is Jenn, then maybe your #StarbucksAtHome cup name is Taylor. If you are Cindy, then maybe you’re Kaila! And if you happen to have the name Cookie….well…the barista would likely get that one right. Maybe Cookie can be Angelina. Switch it up each day depending on your mood. I was ‘Kyle’ this week. I guarantee it will make you laugh.
Of course, being a Dave Lackie giveaway, you need the perfect Autumn fragrance and makeup. I thought Burberry’s romantic and feminine My Burberry Blush Collection would be the perfect accompaniment. This soft floral was created by Master Perfumer Francis Kurkdjian who blends lemon, pomegranate, rose petals, green apple, geranium, jasmine and wisteria. It is inspired by a British garden at dawn.
This pink taupe Burberry Complete Eye palette is a hidden gem in the collection – very flattering neutrals with just the right amount of pigment. I’ve added a Liquid Lip Velvet in Primrose, a warm pink. And a cute mini size of Cat Lashes mascara.
The Giveaway: I gave away this #StarbucksAtHome + Burberry Beauty set to one lucky reader. To enter, I asked readers to tell me in a blog post comment below what their #StarbucksAtHome cup name would be! The funnier the better!! So many hilarious names. We drew the name Tanae Marie from all entries as the winner. Lots more to come!
