Woman's Starbucks' feasts lasted all of 2013, Seattle resident ate nothing else

A woman vowed to eat only Starbucks' meals for an entire year starting at the beginning of last year. Now, with 2013 over and 2014 just begun, the challenge has been met and the female who accomplished this feat has been overrun by compliments and queries on social media, including on her Twitter account on Jan. 2.

One follower called De Ache Paola celebrated her staying power but then wondered why she made this particular resolution in the first place.

The woman, who hails from Seattle, answered that question in detail via Yahoo! on its Twitter feed called Yahoo Trending. She said that she was into "brand awareness, partner treatment, [and] personal dedication."

Now that Beautiful Existence (that's her actual name) has finally done her Starbucks bidding for 365 days in a row she has dined on something other than what this distinctive brand has to offer.

So what was that?

According to the subject herself on her own special blog, Ms. Existence said she ate fish and chips from a local Seattle establishment called Ivars.

And so, as a woman armed with the unusual moniker of Beautiful Existence celebrates the strange fact that she dined on Starbucks' feasts for an entire year's worth of eating, now she's done and moving on to a wider variety of cuisines. Bon appetit!
