Fun Findings Friday #135

Oh hey, Friday. So happy to see you again! This week flew by faster than usual for me – it’s been insanely busy! I have a pretty busy weekend ahead, but am looking forward to some family time on Sunday to celebrate good ol’ dad! Also, I’ve been leaning closer to splurging on that DSLR camera. So that might happen this weekend as an early birthday present to myself!

Let’s get into today’s fun findings.

Starbucks Mobile Order & Pay

Guys, Starbucks’ Mobile Order & Pay feature is now available in beta testing in their app! I was pleasantly surprised to find that Tampa is/was included (maybe it’s just beta everywhere?), but you better believe I was ready to take advantage of it  as soon as I received the push notification alert. Simply tap the “beta order” tab, select your drink (yes you can customize), and choose the location you want to pick up at. I submitted my order when I left my neighborhood yesterday morning, walked right up to the counter, picked up my drink and left… bypassing about 10-12 people waiting in line! I’ve never been so excited about an app feature!

EOS Shaving Cream

While catching up on some blog reading last night, I discovered that one of my favorite beauty brands, EOS (you know, the one with the egg-shaped lip balm), has a shaving cream line! I’m also obsessed with their hand lotion, so I’m very eager to try this out!

First Textual Experience with Aziz Ansari and Jimmy Fallon

Everything about this video – double thumbs up. It’s Jimmy Fallon so you know it’s going to be pretty funny. But add Aziz Ansari (one of my favorite comedians) to the mix, you get hysterical. In this clip, the two read actual text messages sent to/from people in their “first textual experience.” I seriously couldn’t stop laughing!

What’s on your agenda this weekend?

    I love the mobile order and pay, but I always forget it exists! It makes life so much easier and more convenient though, and like you mentioned, it’s great when there’s a long line.

    Ohhhhhh finally Tampa is involved with cool beta apps like that!

    Oh god that app, I wish we had it in Belgium or like, enough starbuckes in order for an app like that to work over here :’)
