Holiday Giveaway 2012

I finally got around to putting up my Christmas decorations yesterday and now it is really starting to feel like the holiday season has arrived! In spirit of the holidays, I partnered up with Nespresso® to give one of my readers a fabulous Christmas gift: the newest espresso machine from Nespresso®, the Nespresso U in Pure Black ($199 value). This giveaway is near and dear to my heart because, as you probably already know, I am a major coffee addict! I love love love coffee. I actually wish I could have one of these for myself, but it makes me happy that one of you will enjoy it just as much as I would! Here is a description of the Nespresso U features:

The Nespresso U is the ultimate machine in modularity, simplicity and purity. It combines personalization with an ultra-chic aesthetic. It has:

  • automatic memorization of one of three preferred cup sizes
  • a moveable water tank that rotates 180º around the machine to adapt its shape to any living space (perfect for a small kitchen!)
  • automatic brewing unit that pierces, brews and automatically ejects used capsules with a retracting coffee outlet to stop dripping after coffee is brewed

The Nespresso U can be paired with the Aerocinno Plus, which creates fresh hot or cold milk froth in seconds for lattes and cappuccinos (not included). Check out their website for more information on this machine and the different flavors offered.

    I love Pumpkin Spiced Lattes! Being able to make them at home would be amazing, although it may leave me housebound many days as I would not have to run out to get coffee! 🙂

    I am hoping to get the Christmas tree and decorations up next weekend. I am looking for a smaller tree to put up for the kids. We currently live in an old farmhouse with tall ceiling, so we have put up a 10 foot tree in years past. I really don’t want to deal with it this year. I hope to keep it simple.

    Thank you for an awesome giveaway. This would definately help simplify my days.
