Celestial Seasonings Holiday Collection









Good afternoon everyone. It's a cold Thursday here in N.Y.C. I have been working non-stop but I will try to stay up to date as much as I can. I stumbled upon Celestial Seasonings holiday line up of teas. Check them out here. They look delicious :)


Do you guys buy "holiday teas" around this time of year? Or just serve your year round regular favorites. Me myself I just drink regular during the holiday season. But these do look yummy. I'd be willing to make a switch.

Own a Keurig Brewer?? Here are some great Pumpkin K-Cups From Greenmountain


Own a traditional coffee maker? Love to recreate your own recipes? Well here is a great Pumpkin Pie Spice Latte Recipe from McCormick Spices.

Gevalia House Party Applications Open







A beautiful happy Saturday to all. I just came back from a nice treat. I went to get a pedicure with my sister at the nail salon. It felt great. After such a stressful week and month. I needed that. I haven't slept in days so I was practically asleep in the chair lol. I am enjoying a nice cup of Jamaica Me Crazy. It is the last K-Cup I had from that blend. Now I am ready to stock up on fall/winter flavors. But it was okay since it is warm here in N.Y.C.

I am a member of houseparty.com. I have gotten one party in the two years or so I have been applying. It is very competitive and at times I get frustrated for never getting picked. None the less I still apply. You never know right? Well the newest party they have is " Gevalia For The Love Of Foam". It looks awesome! I applied and I hope I win. Here is the link so you can apply. It is very easy.

Lipton Has K- Cups !




Good Afternoon Thursday readers. It is a very sticky,humid, and rainy August day here in N.Y.C. Yuck. It makes me feel sleepy. I have been home today because a piece in my shower is broken so I had to wait for the super to finally make his way up to my apartment and fix it. I was reduced to taking a bath a few days and washing my head in the sink. That was fun(not really). Well what can you do? These are the exciting activities that grown ups have to deal with on a daily basis. I am glad to be in an apartment when things like this happen so I never have to fix anything lol.


Today on my Facebook page I saw Lipton Tea now has Tea K-Cups!! Love this idea. I drink Lipton Tea all the time. They are available to purchase on Amazon.com. $12.39 for a 24 count pack. I think that's reasonable for K-Cups. Lipton has three flavors so far. Black Tea,Green Tea, and Iced Tea. I would love to try the black Tea K-Cups.

Have you guys purchased any Tea in K-Cup form? Do you find they taste great or better made the old fashioned way??

I tried a Green Tea K-Cup sample when I first received my mini Keurig. I thought it was good. I haven't bought any since then because of the price. It's way cheaper to buy a box at your supermarket for $3.99 and get a ton of bags as supposed to $14 just for a few K-Cups. Especially the way I drink tea. They would go so quick. That being said, again as always what wins out for Keurig is convenience. So I would like to have some on hand if I am entertaining. Why make a whole pot for one person who wants tea when you can just brew one!

Friday Run Down 8/16/13










I started out this week with a bang. I felt renewed with the cooler fresh air. I had tons of energy. Somewhere down the week from yesterday on I lost my spark. This happens a lot to me. As I got older and my lifestyle changed from going to clubs every night to being a housewife. I always have these spurts of energy. But then it dies out after a while. I could just be relaxing and then boom! I have to get up and go do something. I am not satisfied unless I am constantly doing stuff. Which stinks, because there are days that we should be able to just relax. And go with the flow. But I am trying. My husband hates when I am like this. He feels I work very hard and I should enjoy myself whenever I have the free time(One of the many reasons why I love him so much). If anything it is a compliment to myself if I do have some free time at the end of the night. That means my house is spotless. Work is done. My husband is taken care of. And now it's time for me :) How do you guys unwind?


Here is the Friday Run Down :

So we all know that everything in "moderation" is key. You can have that brownie or cookie. Just not twenty of them. Of course coffee being the same idea. Two cups of coffee a day have proved to have many health benefits. From diminishing dementia to preventing type 2 diabetes. But now there is a study that came out saying that people who drink more than 4 cups of coffee a day could have a higher mortality rate. This doesn't surprise me. As the woman says in the video it's not just 4 average 6 to 8 oz of coffee. Now people that frequent Starbucks, they come home with a jumbo size cup of coffee that is considered "normal". Plus factor in if the people are using sugar and other sweet treats in their coffee. And that is a recipe for disaster! I never use sugar in my coffee. I only use a little half/half or flavored sweetener once in a blue moon. I don't even use splenda either because of the claims to how unhealthy artificial sweeteners are. Anyways, here is the link to the video. How many cups a day to you guys drink ?


Brew Over Ice, Keurig's company for all things Iced is having their Instant win game on Facebook again. You have a chance to win a free tumbler and you are entered into their sweepstakes. Enter here . Good luck!

Afternoon Tea









What a beautiful day it is here in N.Y.C. The humidity dropped and cool air took over. Finally good weather to do my Zumba in! I don't know about you guys, but when it is very hot and humid out I just can't be doing Zumba or cardio like that. Makes me feel like I'm going to pass out. I usually just do sit ups, push ups, & yoga in the summer. I do the same in winter but with my Zumba when I first get up. I was so happy I did an hour advanced session and it felt great. I always feel good when I am eating healthy and working out.
Speaking of being healthy, another thing I try to do every day if I am home is have afternoon tea. I usually stop drinking coffee after the morning time and I love the soothing feeling of stoping for a little bit mid-day and just relaxing. Savoring the moment. I usually go on my porch. Or read a little bit. I have so many different varieties of tea that I drink. Black, green, white, etc. Most are caffeine free which is another reason I switch to tea in the afternoon. So it won't effect me at night. I stumbled upon a great article from Huffington Post on " The History and Etiquette of Afternoon Tea" by Lisa Mirza Grotts. Read the article here.




Do you guys drink tea? Morning ? Afternoon? Any time ??? Love to hear your thoughts. And if you do what are your favorite blends ??

Sunday In Review: Wolfgang Puck "Breakfast In Bed" K-Cups











Good afternoon my readers. This week has just flown by. Today is my Friday. I can't wait to have two days off. I just want to spend quality time with my husband. Have a nice cold drink on our porch. Watch life slow down a bit. It has been a busy week. I am trying to incorporate a lot of new things on my blog. I do the Friday run down, and now I will be adding Sunday Reviews. I am also thinking about doing a little Book Corner Cafe' area where we could discuss or recommend our favorite books. I have been reading so much more the past year or so ever since my dad bought me a Kindle Fire HD for Christmas. It was one of the best gifts I ever received. I just finished reading Angels & Demons by Dan Brown. I read the Da Vinci Code first. I know he has a few other books but I got a bit bored after a while of reading two books about Church and conspiracy theories lol. I am on to "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo". I loved the movie and my sister said the book was great (as usual the book almost always is). But I would love to hear from everyone their top picks. Anyways here is the Sunday In Review:



I had tried Wolfgang Puck a while ago. Each K-Cup I tried from him I really loved. Breakfast In Bed is a great Medium Roast Coffee for everyday. It is smooth. No bitterness. It has a nice aroma when you brew it in your Keurig. My husband loves this. He asks for it everyday. He's more of a plain coffee drinker. So this one is his favorite. I just recently bought a box again at Bed Bath and Beyond. It is almost gone! I would highly recommend purchasing if you love a medium roast coffee. Or if you are not into the flavor movement. This will be perfect for you :) I think it would pair nice with any dessert since it doesn't have any sweet undertones.






I hope you all enjoy tasting this coffee in good health :)

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Is Back










It's that time of year again. Where the summer nights start getting a bit shorter. We go back to work. Back to school. Back to reality. The summer is slowly ending. With that there is the promise of cooler nights. Warmer drinks. The best time of year, the holidays. Accompanying those beautiful memories are a seasonal favorite. Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice coffee! I love this blend in the fall/winter holidays. It's a tradition now to have it in my household starting from October through winter. It gives me just one more reason to love fall :) You can shop here and get Pumpkin Spice in any way shape or form. Ground bag, K-Cups, or Vue Packs.



Do you guys have seasonal favorites? Have you ever tried Pumpkin Spice before ? Well read my review on the coffee here.








My thoughts for the day:
I am back from my week vacation. I am so happy to be with my hubby but it sucks working again.
I hate humidity. August can rain and be humid almost everyday. I love the rain but leave that humidity at home.
I received an amazing gift yesterday from Tassimo. A brand new T55 machine. It is amazing!!!!!! I will be doing a big review in the weeks to come.
I think I sneezed 100 times from my allergies today even though I take Zyrtec once a day lol
I received the 2014 Ikea catalog as further discussed in previous posts. All I can say is can't wait to plan a trip to go in about a month or two !!!





Enjoy your day everyone...

Smaller Companies To Get Into The Single Serve Industry








Life can seem overwhelming. Maybe not every day or month. Or it could be all day long. You never know. Life is very unpredictable. I find myself having a day that I will feel down out of no where. Not quite knowing why. I think it is because I have become so tuff living on my own ( and in NYC) that I often get through the day to day obstacles without an after thought. You get stressed. You get burned but you are almost used to it. I've been through so many hardships ever since I was young. They have made me stronger. But Every once in a while my heart will catch up with my head and say "hey slow down". Process what you've been through and what you are going through. It's good to let yourself feel your emotions to move on and truly experience life on every level you possibly can. Usually by the morning I am back to my routine. Which brings me to the best advice if you guys ever feel that way. Even right now reading this: Just make coffee! When life sucks, and life is hard, or you are just tired from fighting all the time. And the struggle also known as life. Just get up and make that coffee. Worry about the rest later on. It will still be there by the time the pot is empty. At least for those 5 or 10 minutes you are transcended to a moment of peace.



Single serve coffee has pretty much taken over the world. Any company who is any body has their own single serve version of coffee. Green Mountain & Nespresso being the top contenders, but not to be swept up and left in the dust. Smaller companies are starting to produce their coffee in Single Serve form. Read this article from daily coffee news about A Tennessee Roaster who is going single serve .









What do you guys think about this? Do you think smaller home town coffee shops should make their coffee in single serve form so they will generate more business and everyone can enjoy their coffee no matter where in the world they are? Or do you think they should stick to what they do best. Local small shop coffee roasting ? Me personally I think they should. There is no downside I can think of. More sales, more exposure, and great for the customers that might not live where the coffee shop is.

Gevalia Dark Roast K-Cup Review




Today I am in a Pinterest kind of mood. Getting close to fall before we know it, I am getting that itch to buy new linens, blankets, and maybe a cozy chair. I love Pinterest. I have gotten such good design ideas from there. I love to look up apartments. Seeing people's bold designs inspires me to push my limits. I want to become a better decorator.














So I have a good review for you today. I have really loved all of the Gevalia K-Cups I have tried so far. This is another one: Gevalia Dark Roast is the newest one I have tried. It is " an intense complex blend". Full Bodied. 100% Arabica Beans. It smells great. Has a strong aroma reminiscent of when you walk into your favorite coffee house shop. Dark color. Rich and bold but not bitter at all. Nice and smooth. Me and my husband both loved it. I think it is good for every day use if you like a medium-bold coffee. I would give it Four coffee cups out of 5.









P.S. As I am writing, I am listening to the Coffee House station on slacker radio :)

The Heat & Ikea ....






We have been having a bit of a heat wave here in NYC. Everyone seems to be cranky, hot, and lazy. Oh wait is that just me ? Minus the cranky lol. What is it about the heat that makes you feel so lazy! It took me forever to get out of bed today. I probably hit the snooze button a million times. I was supposed to go to my local Rite Aid and pick up a few things, but knowing that heat was out there. I just laid in bed until the last minute possible. Then of course the laundry has piled up. I told my husband I'd do it last week but that never happened. He kept forgetting to give me the laundry card. So finally today he remembered. He has run out of clothes so I HAVE to do all this laundry on the hottest day of the year! I don't mind doing the laundry regularly because I take care of everything in our apartment. That is my job. But I am dreading doing this "job" later. Luckily I have some time to drag it out and sit here in front of the fan with the shades drawn because I am expecting a UPS package. I can't leave now anyway (yay).
I love the spring and beginning of summer when that possibility is fresh of grilling outdoors. Having the windows open. And the positivity of seeing the sun shine. But.... me personally. I'm a winter girl all the way. I adore the holidays. I love the cold fresh air. I love cold/chilly rainy days. It's me and my husbands favorite. Fireplaces. Snow. Snuggling up. I go out all the time in the winter. Some times more than even in the summer. I have my own porch so I go out every morning with my coat on and enjoy that glorious gift we all love other wise known as coffee :)
I will try to endure this heat wave. If you don't hear from me in a while I might have fallen asleep from the heat or passed out doing laundry lol What are your ways to beat the heat? Where you guys live is it very hot? Cold? Or both?









P.S. I'm totally awaiting the 2014 Ikea Catalog. That is like Christmas morning in my home. I haven't been to Ikea since about December. So I am due for a haul. I can't wait to see the new designs !!!!
This photo is of a new chair I am crushing on at Ikea. Looks very modern to me. Love the color. Isn't she a beauty ??

Coffee And A Bit More..




Caio coffee readers :) I have been thinking a lot about expanding my blog. At first it started as a coffee/tea blog. All things in between. But I have so many other projects and talents I do every day that I think I should incorporate into the blog. Hopefully I will get more readers to sign up, and enjoy. As well as them sharing with me their own projects and opinions. I am really big into taking pictures, DIY projects,designing my apartment, fashion, etc. I know there are millions of apartment dwellers out their in cities all over the world. I would like to expand to those readers. I feel we share that bond together. Decorating a small space. Living in the city. All the pros and cons that come with that. Over the next few months I will still be blogging about my love that is coffee. But if you see a home project design picture or a stylish outfit I just purchased and was excited to talk about. Yes it is still the coffeediva :) It's just the other things I am in love with too....

Coffee & Good Health




I have read numerous articles on the health benefits of coffee consumption. This article definitely will blow you away on the benefits of coffee drinking. I think it is safe to note ( even though I am not a doctor). The amount you drink, should still be within moderation. Two cups a day the most. Not being used with sugar as well to see the full benefits. Otherwise you are defeating the purpose of drinking coffee for health!

New From Tassimo: Tassimo Tea Bar








Hello my friends. Today is a hot and humid day here in N.Y.C. It looks like it is going to be that way all week :( Hate that. I can never work out when it is this humid out. Except for yoga maybe. Well I have been so busy lately I missed you guys. I just did a big renovation to my hallway. I painted it a beautiful bold dark teal color with white trim. I have been finishing little by little. Adding new pictures, accessories as well as light switches and such. What a project !! What have you all been keeping busy with ?

I was contacted by a very sweet lady from Tassimo. They are a huge company that sells single serve machines like the Keurig world wide. She told me that they have a brand new product out called Tea Bar (And provided me with Free Samples. How amazing was that). The Tea Bar has three flavors so far. Sweet Black Tea, Peach, and Raspberry. These are meant to be served iced. Just in time for Summer ! They are $9.99 for a pack of 16. They can be bought through Tassimo's website online. As well as Bedbathandbeyond and many more. They are a limited edition so stock up now while they are available. I have not had a chance to try because I don't own a Tassimo brewer but they might be sending me one in the future so I will definitely be reviewing the Tea Bar discs as well as the machine when/if that happens. What makes them different is the machine scans a bar code that helps brew the right amount of coffee or tea per beverage. Giving you the best coffee, tea, espresso, etc. How genius.



Do you guys own a Tassimo brewer ? It looks really amazing I am very curious how it stands up to the competition.

Coffitivity: The New Sound Of Creativity !




The newest thing to hit the coffee scene is not a new coffee as you'd think. It's Coffitivity. It's basically the hum of a coffee shop in the background of people talking, drinking, eating. Playing in the background of your computer to boost your creativity. I like the idea because I myself have always been a "background music" type of creative person. In fact when I put music on while I'm working or even just doing my make up, I feel everything always comes out better. The music keeps me focused. As well as motivated. I think that is the most important thing when you are working. Especially if you work from home as I do. You need that stamina to finish whatever job you are doing. I am listening to Coffitivity as I type right now ! Also if you are a person who is alone a lot ( again me ) this might be perfect for you as well. If you are at the computer and you are just looking for a little white noise. Check out this article from The New York Times on Coffitivity. Log on. Listen. Be creative. And let me know if you think it helps or it's just a waste of noise !

Eight O'Clock Original Medium Roast K-Cup Review












Hello all. I know it is nothing but rain lately here in N.Y.C. I am trying to plan a mini vacation for me and my husband for next month. It has been such a trying year for us and we deserve a get a way. How is the weather around your neck of the woods. I hope you all are safe and warm. Here is a new review to keep you guys thinking positive.
So over the past few months I have tried a lot of the new K-Cups that are now available. Eight O'Clock Coffee being one of them. I have been so delighted to find that most of the brands that I'm not familiar with or crazy about taste great in K-Cup form. Eight O'Clock coffee has been around for a long time and I have tried their bag coffee here and there but was never much of a "fan". But now I am hooked. I tried the medium blend first. It is a great medium roast. Perfect for everyday drinking. No after taste. It has 100% Arabica coffee in their K-Cups. Which is probably why they taste so good ! I have even tried the Hazelnut blend and it is great. My husband is a huge Hazelnut fan and he loves it. It's a perfect consistency. Not watery or too sweet . I think you should try both !Now I want to try all of the Eight O'Clock varieties. You can get in the grocery store for about &7.99 give or take depending on where your store is. I am very happy my local grocery store has been stocking all of the new brands including Gevalia, Maxwell House, and Eight O'Clock Coffee.




Have you guys tried any of the new coffee's in K-Cup form? What did you think of them ??

Top Five Summer K-Cups



Well just as fast as Christmas ends every year summer arrives out of the woods. These past few days here in N.Y.C have reached temps in the mid to high 80's. None the less it's been hot ! But I have welcomed the heat with open arms and windows. I thought a great post would be to do my top five k-cups to enjoy in the summer. A lot of people ( me included) still drink hot coffee even in the summer. But I do like to switch it up with a seasonal flavor. So here is my list of favorites. I hope you will try and enjoy in the sun with good health.



1. Green Mountain's Island Coconut. Has a great flavoring. Obviously coconut. It's a light roast. Best way to describe is it tastes like a mounds bar ! Yumm.



2. Wolfgang Puck's Jamaica Me Crazy. This is very similar to Island Coconut but with a slight variation. It tastes like caramel meets coconut and has a Jamaican love child ! The other difference is Jamaica Me crazy is a medium roast. So it feels more hearty than say the Island Coconut that is so light.




3. Green Mountain's Wild Mountain Blueberry. I can't say enough about this K-Cup. I have done a review on it. The flavor is out of this world. It is a light roast that tastes exactly like an amazing blueberry muffin you would get at your local diner. I love it and have used it since last summer. I URGE you to taste it and be in heaven for a few moments. P.S It smells great too !!



4. Green Mountain's Nantucket Blend. I chose this coffee because I think it is such a great regular medium bodied coffee. I always recommend to anyone who wants a good plain coffee. Or anyone who is just starting out with their Keurig. Plus Nantucket sounds like a great place to go sailing.(It even has a light house and the ocean on the box) So to me that's a great summer k-cup :) P.S. This K-Cup comes in an iced version and it tastes just as good cold as it does hot. This is my go to in the summer iced.


5. Green Mountain's Caramel Vanilla Cream. I just recently tasted this one and it is very tasty. If you love a French Vanilla coffee or flavored light blends you will love this one. It's just like going to the ice cream man on a hot summer day, but without the calories and the guilt. Would be great iced too, I think .



So have any of you tried these flavors ? I would love to try some other seasonal K-Cups I've seen before such as: Timothy's sweet summer raspberry. Or Green Mountain's summer Safari Blend. We shall see. I will post any I try and let me know if you guys enjoy these as well in the summer time. I put some links in the blog as well for reviews I've done. If I left any out just use my search bar to check them out. Thanks.

Blackberry Z10 Review For Crowdtap & Verizon








Happy Saturday lovers. How has your week been? I hope good. Well if you are like me and you hate the Iphone at this point and the followers that shell out hundreds of dollars every month for essentially the same type of phone, then I have a great new one for you.
I was very lucky to be chosen to try the new Blackberry Z10 phone from Crowdtap & Verizon. I can't say enough about this phone. I love it. It has a nice screen that is not really huge ( like the Samsung Galaxy models) or too small like some cheaper Android models. It is right in the middle. It is pretty user friendly. I didn't even read the guide before using. You take nice pictures. You can make videos. You can video chat or take pictures either front or back which is very cool. It is fast. No lagging or freezing in the screen. The biggest seller of them all is that the Blackberry has a great battery life. I gave it to my husband as an early birthday present and he has been using it every day and loves it. All of his co-workers were converts as well.
The price at the moment is kind of high I think the phone goes for about $500. But with a contract at Verizon might be less.

So try the phone out. Take a look do some research it is great :)

Friday Run Down 5/3/13



Hi guys!! I have been away on vacation this past week with my husband. Today was our first day back at work. The bad part was going back to work. The good part is it's only a three day week so we will be off again on Monday. It was so nice to spend quality time with my husband. We did a million things in one week. Saw family. Went shopping. Purchased some new well deserved ( and needed ) furniture. I even did an hour Zumba Core workout today. Which may I just add was so intense. It said I burned 600 calories. It was fun. I just love it! I use it on my Wii machine. Anywhoo enough about me. How was your week without me ???
It is Friday so you know what that means. The Friday Run Down!! Here goes...

Espro Press Review








Earlier I had did a thorough post on the Espro Press and all it's great qualities and where to purchase. Everything you needed to know about what the Espro Press is. They were nice enough to send me the small version of the Espro Press and I just love it. It eliminates the need of using a french press but has the same type of idea in mind. Just a highly updated and technologically advanced version. The Espro Press has two filters to make sure that there are no ground bits in your coffee. It keeps the coffee warm in the double insulated stainless steel wall. A minimum of two hours. ( I tested this I think mine was for about an hour. Give or take). It's beautiful. Let's you use whatever coffee you like. And it gives you the option to really customize your own brew. I like to keep it and use it for when I run out of K-Cups. Or when I have a special blend to taste and review. I don't want to use an old drop coffee maker. Yuck. Espro Press is the new wave of the future and if you are a coffee lover I would recommend buying. You can purchase in a small, medium, or large size. I have the small which is great for one or two people the most. Order here if interested.

Maxwell House "House Blend" K-Cup Review






Good afternoon. It is finally a warm sunny day here in N.Y.C. I have so many reviews and posts to catch up on since I have been so busy working. But I have a great review for you today. It is Maxwell House's House blend kcup. Now I will be honest since we are all such good friends. I really did not expect Maxwell House K-Cups to be good. Their regular ground coffee in the can is mediocre at best. So I was expecting the K-Cup to be watered down or taste weird. But I was wrong. Which I am so many times in life ;) The coffee was a very nice medium blend. It tastes strong in the sense that there is no watering down of this K-Cup. The coffee is fresh. 100% Arabica. No after taste. No gritty taste. No flavor. Just plain old good drink till the last drop coffee.
I had one cup yesterday and was so excited to have another today. I even told my mom about them. What made me even more happy was that my local Key Food grocery store had them in stock. A few years back when I first got my Keurig, I could only find K-Cups at Bed Bath and Beyond or my local Kmart actually. But then little by little ( I guess since Keurig is so damn popular and it's literally taking over the world) my grocery store starting adding a whole line. When I went in the other day I saw Gevalia and Maxwell House. My husband being the sweetheart that he is, saw my emotion and right away dropped them in our cart and got them for me:) ( love you babe). And the rest is history.

I really would urge you to try the Maxwell House House blend. Even if you didn't like their coffee in the tub or can, I think this will convert you to the brand. This is the same thing that happened to me with the Folger's K-Cups. I always hated Folgers regular coffee. But the gourmet line and the K-Cups I LOVE. So I'd give it 4 coffee cups out of 5. The box sells for $7.99 for only 12. That's the only downside. But once in a while I will pick one up at the grocery store on impulse. Usually I buy on Bed Bath and Beyond because they have coupons and free shipping.






Has anyone ever tried these yet ? Do you agree with me or think they stink ???

Friday Run Down 4/19/13




Hello everyone. I hope you are all having a beautiful Friday. I just wanted to take the time to say that I am so sorry to anyone who was effected by the horrible events that took place in Boston this week, and that are still conspiring today. It is so sad to turn on the T.V and see all that is wrong in this world everyday. No place is safe anymore. I think that's why I really enjoy the smallest things in life like coffee or this blog. Life is short as we all see and we have to be thankful for everything we have. Stop with the money and what car do you drive. It's so unimportant in the comparison of life itself. Let's all us good people still believe in love and life and pass it on to another.

Here's the Friday Run Down. I hope it cheers anyone up in some small way :) My loving positive thoughts are out there in this universe ..


Stop in today at your local Dunkin Donuts to get your choice of a fresh brewed Iced Tea for only $.99. In your choice of classic, peach, or raspberry.

Try The Cottonelle Clean Care Routine



Hello readers. As per my last post about crowdtap.com, here is another great item to review and use. Cottonelle Clean Care Routine. I was very lucky enough to be a crowdtap.com member. I received a very generous box of over 36 rolls of Cottonelle toilet paper and three tubs of wipes. I have been using every day and it really does make you feel nice and clean every time after using the bathroom. You can tell the difference from the cheap stuff I usually use and Cottonelle. A lot of times when you use cheap toilet paper it leaves behind some. Or on a hot day you just don't feel all that " fresh " . Try Clean Care Routine. You have nothing to loose but that "dirty feeling" .

Espro Medium Pre-Review



Back in 2002 two innovative mechanical engineers sat down for coffee and sketched their first of many designs to come into the company we know today as Espro. Their names were Bruce Costantine and Chris McLean. By 2004 Espro was born. They had found a way to take out the biggest problems that are faced by the French Press. Coffee grinds everywhere. Breaking models. Staying warm for five minutes.
Espro has made a beautifully stunning work of art. Their Press is stainless steel. Vacuum sealed. Double walled to keep the coffee hot for a minimum of two hours. It has a unique two filter system that filters the coffee in two stages that enables the coffee to be pressed 9-12 times finer in comparison to an average French Press. In doing this they have removed 10-20% of leftover waste. They came out with their large model first, and now they have a medium one.It will be 12-18 oz. This Press will save 20 to 30% of waste! The new Medium Press is available for a discounted rate on Espro's Kickstarter page.Visit and order yours today. I will be reviewing it next week. I was contacted to try out the newest design. I can't wait I am very excited to share how good it is with all of my coffee lovers :)(And from all of my research so far online it has been getting rave reviews! ).
Below is a video and more information on their company, product, and how you can help. As well as some links to great reviews.

Another Sugary Ban On Drinks, Now Coffee.








Afternoon . It is a snowy/rainy cloudy dreary day here in N.Y.C. What else is new lol ? I just read an article from the New York Times that explains all about Mayor Bloomberg's new "rules" on buying coffee and what we could put in it . Read on.

Does this bother you guys to put in your own sugar ? Is it a problem ? Do you think it will stop people from buying " big sugary coffee drinks " ? For me not so much. We all know no matter what you tell people they will do as they please. Case in point people still smoke even though we know the horrible health risks. I don't even use sugar in my coffee so another reason this won't effect me. I never order large coffee drinks either. I once in a blue moon will order a small or Medium French Vanilla Skim Latte at Dunkin Donuts. But 7 days out of the week I make my own coffee at home. It's cheaper and most of the coffee I try out I think stinks. Yes even Starbucks, and definitely Dunkin Donuts. The hot latte is the only decent coffee I've ever even tried from them!

Friday Run Down 3/1/2013




Well here we are yet again. Another Friday. The weeks just seem to fly by. In a couple of weeks I myself will be 27. I really can't imagine where the years have gone. I feel like it was just yesterday I graduated high school. Then before I knew it I was moving out, getting engaged, married, and a million things in between from the time I was 20 until now. I met my husband when I was 20 and haven't looked a day back since. I am an old school romantic. I believe in lasting love. Growing old together. And of course soul mates. Well if any of you can relate to me in the years flying by, how have you dealt with them ? Do you find yourself savoring that cup of coffee just a little bit longer to try and soak up the precious minutes each day has ? Do you sit outside and star at the clouds? Do you hug your loved ones a little tighter everyday? I do :)
OK well your favorite part of the week ( I just know it !!) The Friday run down of all the gossip and facts regarding the coffee/tea world !!
