The little things that make my day…

Here’s to you… December 2, 2010

Today’s Here’s to you… award goes to a company that I probably should have recognized awhile ago: Starbucks. In the past month Starbucks has:

  • Given me a free drink for waiting “too long” for my drink. I actually had not even realized it had been longer than usual, but am thrilled they thought so 🙂
  • Brought my first feelings of holiday cheer when they released their holiday cups (and seasonal cranberry bliss bars! mmmm)

  • Let me play a game online to win a 4 pack of Starbucks Via…which I forgot about until today when it came in the mail!
  • Had an awesome buy one get one free promotion for holiday drinks which I took advantage of…twice.
  • Created a great holiday commercial:

The creativity of their marketing, sensitivity of their customer service, and deliciousness of their drinks keep me coming back probably more often than I should. Here’s to you…Starbucks.

So it’s been a few days since I posted, so I decided to open up my Vanity Fair September issue for some potential inspiration…and I got it.

Every magazine has tons. and tons. of ads. I happen to be someone who doesn’t mind it so much. Why? Probably because I studied marketing, took some advertising classes, and love photography.

So as I flipped through the pages of VF, I tagged the companies who almost always have ads & pictures I like. Some of my favorites are:

Burberry

Especially like their choice of Emma Watson as a model

Michael Kors fall 2010 ads. I love fall, and this ad makes me incredibly excited for the coming months. One of my all time favorite ads.

Tommy Hilfiger. Americana, 'nough said.

Jcrew. Dream job? JCrew catalog photographer.

Ralph Lauren. Always classy/preppy/pretty.

What ads do you like??
