She did it.
Beautiful Existence (yes, that's her actual name), a mother of two from Seattle, accomplished her goal of consuming nothing but Starbucks products for a year. Though the 40-year-old clearly has a will of iron, she admitted to the New York Daily News that the last month or so was the ultimate struggle. "In the last month, in the last couple weeks, it's been really difficult. People had pizza at the office last week and I was dying," she said.
Existence, who said her first semi-normal meal was fish and chips, basically described her re-introduction to regular food as a party in her mouth (insert perverted joke here). The type of party you can only stomach so much of. "My taste buds have been freaking out for the last 24 hours," she explained, adding that "you can only eat so much [fried food] after you haven't had stuff like that for a year."
The upside of her accomplishment? She proved that she's down for the cause, whatever the cause may be. The downside? She spent about $4,000 above what the typical adult female spends on groceries in a year. That's literally the price of eccentricity.
