Giveaway: Win a Keurig Special Edition Brewing System

Giveaway: Win a  Keurig Special Edition Brewing System

I’m headed out of town (yes, again) in the wee hours of the morning tomorrow, and just spent the morning walking around my neighborhood, catching up on pre-trip errands. As I did, I found myself gazing wistfully into real estate office windows. I feel like I’m — along with a lot of other people in my world — going through a sort of crossroads. Some are moving, some are getting married, others are having babies — all in all, we’re at various stages of growing pains, looking for the next thing. The big move. Or even just a little one. I love my neighborhood. I even sort of love my apartment. But it’s small. Too small. As in — I am a 30+ year old woman with a twin-sized bed and a junior fridge small. And I want...

Giveaway: AT&T Unite Pro by NETGEAR (with service!)

Giveaway: AT&T Unite Pro by NETGEAR (with service!)

As I mentioned in earlier posts, I’m headed to SXSW next week, and I’m really excited — and anticipating being super busy. In my world, that means being wired (wirelessly!) from anywhere and everywhere I can be. For anyone who is all about being digitally connected, whether for work or play (or a combo of both!) — access to the Internet is the most essential travel item. Maybe even more essential than dry shampoo. (No, really. It probably is.) Whether you’re at an event like SXSW or on a road trip, at a temporary worksite, in a weekend cabin, at the park, or working from the back of a taxi (yes, I’ve done that too! not for the faint of heart) — there are times when Wi-Fi access is essential, and you don’t want to be limited to...

Giveaway: Win a Nescafe Dolce Gusto just in time for your  Ultimate Oscar Viewing Party!

The Oscars are coming very very soon. And whether you are watching the red carpet just to snark at the beauty choices, or you are very invested in who wins or loses, chances are, you are going to need to be fortified. Many of us will be having viewing parties that night, and those include the need for star-quality snacks as well! Nescafe Dolce Gusto recently asked Mario Lopez about his own fancy party beverage ideas, and  he breaks out the Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine to create alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. Mario’s specialty is the Espresso Martini. Combine Bourbon, Amaro and Espresso (made with the Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine) and then add ice. Stir with a long spoon (don’t shake), strain into an up glass and garnish with one Luxardo cherry. SO...

Giveaway: Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE Phone for Virgin Mobile

In my experience, there’s nothing like the season of giving (and spending) to make you want to have a little something special for yourself. So, just in case the new smartphone you really wanted wasn’t in your pile of gifts, I have something pretty exciting for you! I’m giving away the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE for Virgin Mobile! Virgin Mobile’s Beyond Talk Plans are perfect for those of us who are iffy about committing to a relationship — even when it’s a phone contract. They start at $35 for unlimited data and messaging [$30/month for iPhones] – and you don’t pay for the minutes that you don’t need. You’ll never have to worry about unexpected overage charges for too many texts or excessive data use. Speaking as...

I know all of the Starbucks secret recipes! (Also, a big Starbucks GIVEAWAY!)

I know all of the Starbucks secret recipes! (Also, a big Starbucks GIVEAWAY!)

While engaging in my morning procrastination, I came across a really cool run down of all the secret Starbucks recipes. If my season wasn’t already holiday beverage-centric, it certainly went up a notch. Nutella frappuccino? Really?! Actually, one of the most important part of the Christmas season (for me!) is the introduction of the Starbucks red cup, and the yumminess inside is a fabulous bonus. It’s here — but that’s not all. So is Starbucks Christmas Blend. I have always loved it because it’s everything I love — a sweet, spicy blend of the liveliness of superb Latin American coffees with the mellow smoothness of Asia-Pacific coffees as well as aged Sumatra beans. I’m so excited I’m giving away a package of this...

Giveaway: Sexy Holiday Contest from Slimfast

Giveaway: Sexy Holiday Contest from Slimfast

I’m trying to get a hold on my health and fitness again — in fact, I’m proud to share I’ve been to the gym 2 days in a row! Hardly an accomplishment — most of my friends make a habit of such and don’t ask for a pat on the back — but, baby steps, right? We all do what we can, and motivation along the way makes a big difference. For instance, Running through December 13, we can enter on Slimfast’s Facebook to win each day by completing fun challenges. One lucky person will win a holiday bash with holiday-themed mocktails and receive gifts delivered by a Sexy Santa brigade of hot men. That’s *my* idea of a happy holiday. This fun contest is  on Slimfast’s Facebook page, and to get the mood started, I’m...

Attempting to indulge without the guilt this season? Enter my George Foreman Grill giveaway!

Happy Holidays!!! My fusion of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah yesterday was quite intense — it involved a CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN. Holidays are sort of about the indulgence, but the idea is to try to stay on the straight and narrow (no pun intended) on the every day so you can have some fun on the special ones. I’m obsessed with my George Foreman grill, and they recently shared their holiday-geared weight loss program. The George Foreman Grills Weight Loss Challenge, a free 12-week program that offers everyone the tools needed to lose and ward off unwanted weight to “Look like a Knock-Out” this holiday season! The George Foreman Grills Weight loss Challenge is a free weight-loss program developed by the brand with Registered Dietician and Certified Personal...

Giveaway: Clarisonic Mia First Limited Edition

…And just like that, we were thrust into the HEIGHT of holiday shopping. I just discovered tha b-glowing.com, will be the first place to grab the Mia First limited edition Clarisonic Mia. For all of you not embracing the Clarisonic — you need it, desperately — and this one, at $99, is perfectly priced for a gift for yourself in the midst of buying everyone else presents. (Which, I think, is what makes the holidays survivable). We all can use a wee bit of self-indulgence around now, but it’s also great for gifting, especially if you aren’t familiar with how fab sonic cleansing is. It’s available right now, but you may want to wait a few days — b-glowing is going to have 20% from “Cyber Sunday” December 1...

Giveaway: Check out these Black Friday/Cyber Monday Nescafe Dolce Gusto deals (and win a Melody 2!)

This weekend, I was on a press trip, and one night at dinner, a conversation arose about divisive foods. My friends and I were discussing items like cilantro, beets, mushrooms – generally, you either love them or hate them — and there’s very seldom middle ground.

Whether you’re hitting the stores at 4 am on Black Friday (I don’t recommend it) or logging on from your couch – there’s great deals to be had.
