Now the new tea is TMZ caught Patti out in public and had the chance to ask her about the pies selling out as a result of James’ viral video. She quickly responded that her pies were already selling out at Walmart before James’ video went viral. Well, Walmart sales records may indicate otherwise, however I don’t believe anyone will make much fuss about the beloved soulful singer. She has called James directly and even posted on her social media sites thanking him for the great  review.

Is The Starbucks Red Cup a Fashion Faux Pas?

Starbucks Red Cups

Here is the latest tea about the country’s beloved coffee maker Starbucks. Apparently some people feel that Starbucks has made a major faux pas with their latest holiday red cup. Some are saying the bright red cups are offensive to Christians because the cups are only red with no actual Christmas symbol on them. The major coffee company has traditionally done some sort of fun marketing for the holiday season.

“This year we wanted to usher in the holidays with a purity of design that welcomes all of our stories,” said Starbucks’ Vice President of Design & Content Jeffrey Fields.

“Starbucks has become a place of sanctuary during the holidays,” Fields added. “We’re embracing the simplicity and the quietness of it. It’s more open way to usher in the holiday.”

I think the cup is fun and festive and there are perhaps more important things that we can concern ourselves with than the traditional color of a holiday cup.

I personally love all the bright and bold red decorations and fashions that we see as the Christmas season comes upon us. The Starbucks red cup simply reminds me of the wonderful holiday cheer we spread at this time of year.

Plaid is Trending for Fall

Plaid girls

Recently while I was doing some promo modeling supporting our Troops at a Nascar event, I happened upon Target’s very cool promotions tent and their theme was everything plaid. They had plaid shirts, tents, sporting goods, and cool plaid glasses as premium give aways for their visitors. I just love the cozy feeling of a warm plaid shirt on a cool, crisp autumn day. It makes me think of a blazing campfire and hot cocoa.

A few months ago a saw cool picture of lady in a men’s plaid shirt and a very feminine ballerina skirt. I thought it was cute and thought not much more of it. But as the weather has turned cooler and the leaves quickly changed I once again was reminded of that cozy yet chic plaid inspired style that seems to be the fall trend for 2015.
