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...

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: 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.

More Seasonal Cheer: Starbucks Is Raising Prices (Again!)

More Seasonal Cheer: Starbucks Is Raising Prices (Again!)

Y’all, I’ve been trying to keep a positive attitude about – you know, everything sucking to biblical proportions – but THIS — THIS – is my breaking point. Starbucks is raising prices for coffee by 1% in some regions of the country in response to rising commodities costs. Really?! REALLY, STARBUCKS? I love you. I love you like I’ve never loved another. But…really?! The Wall Street Journal reports that the 1% hike will hit the Northeast and Sunbelt regions – i.e. – me. Again. Thanks. The company did not give specific details of which states will see a hike, but said that most southern states will see higher prices. Dallas, Washington, Boston and Atlanta are all getting the price hike. Florida and...
