Tomorrow: #JustBrewIt Twitter Party With Keurig — Win one of 15 Special Edition Brewers

Tomorrow: #JustBrewIt Twitter Party With Keurig — Win one of 15 Special Edition Brewers

I’ve spent just about every day of Passover hanging with my mom – even coerced her to come over to my mess of an apartment yesterday to help me declutter, and I’ve realized — Mother’s Day should really be every day. Keurig agrees. I’ve teamed with One2One for a “cool beans” (couldn’t resist!) Keurig #JustBrewIt Twitter Party devoted entirely to the awesomeness of our moms and making their day special (and every day special!). The party is going to be tomorrow and I hope all of you will be there! My co-host for the party will be the lovely Angela Sellari of About a Mom  — who may know a thing or two more about being a mom than I do, meaning we’ll have a lot to talk about! There’ll be some...

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: “Get Lucky” This St. Patrick’s Day!

With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, I know you all really want a pot of gold… I’m so I’ve partnered with LifeStyles to give away a pot of gold – in the form of SKYN Condoms. Widely known as “the closest thing to wearing nothing,” SKYN is said by many to provide greater sensation and more comfort than other non-latex and even latex condoms on the market today. Research also shows that 66% of condom users convert to SKYN once they’ve experienced the unique benefits of polyisoprene. I’m giving away a “Get Lucky Prize Pack” which will include LifeStyles SKYN, LifeStyles TURBO (Voted “Best New Condom” by Men’s Health), and LifeStyles a:muse™ His & Hers Pleasure Massagers (which includes a fingertip massager and...

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...

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!

Giveaway: Express Glam Fragrance + $100 Express Gift Card

Giveaway: Express Glam Fragrance + $100 Express Gift Card

When I was in college, Express was one of those places the “cool kids” shopped. Back then, I didn’t really fit into a lot of their clothes, and it was somewhat aspirational for me. As soon as I was able to, I was all about their jeans. It’s new to see Express selling fragrances though, and I’m all about the new Glam. Made with top notes of black currant, mandarin vodka and mid notes of sheer jasmine, while the base notes are sandalwood flower, praline and white woods, it legit FEELS glam — and it’s so slender I can easily fit it in my purse when I’m out and about! For those of you who aren’t into heavy scents, this one is light and airy and starts at just $15.99 for the roller ball size – a great price...

Giveaway: HP Envy x2 Laptop/Tablet Hybrid

Greetings from Nashville! Obviously, this is one of my favorite cities in the country — this is the third time I’ve been here this year! — but this time, I’m here for a very special reason — I’m one of the speakers at the KEEN Digital Summit, a conference of digital tastemakers. My presentation was on using social media for social good and it’s a cause incredibly close to me. I really truly believe all of us have the ability to make a definitive difference in the lives of the people who need us if we just put a little effort into it! While here, I’ve been playing with my new HP ENVY x2, which was sent to me for the purpose of a review and giveaway — and I’m in love with it. I’m staying at the new...

My obsession with Les Miserables (is your reward!) — a giveaway!

My obsession with Les Miserables (is your reward!) — a giveaway!

As I’ve mentioned (a few dozen?) times, I’m immoderately obsessed with all things Les Miserables. I’ve read the book countless times — and it’s a long one! — and saw the play at least six times in high school. And when the movie came out Christmas? I was there opening day. And the next day. And, well, I admit – the day after that. So, obviously I already own the Les Miserables Blu-Ray combo pack – and it’s amazing. And I hope some of you own it soon as well, because I’m giving it away to 5 winners! More info here. Enter...
