Enter to Win a Dolce Gusto Piccolo Coffee Machine

Here's to hoping your holidays are a little happier if you win this Dolce Gusto Piccolo

UPDATE: Congratulations to Mojamala2 for winning the Dolce Gusto!

Besides the normal holiday stresses like shopping and decorating, this season has proven a little busier than normal in our house with the addition of a few roadtrips.

From weddings in Philly to our upcoming drive to Austin, Texas — Scott and I are starting to wear a little thin on energy.

To de-stress, I’ve been trying to head to the gym whenever I can to work out. But when I just need to keep moving, I’ve been turning to my favorite dispensers of caffeine. My electric tea kettle (still one of my favorite wedding gifts) and my Dolce Gusto Piccolo are delicious sanity savers.

I got the Piccolo a few months ago after the Dolce Gusto Foodie Feedup at Greenhouse Tavern.  And I’ve thoroughly enjoyed making myself frothy cappuccinos and chai tea lattes without having to run out to Starbucks (here are all of their flavors).

Now, you can win your own Titanium Piccolo to keep you going while you’re out shopping local for your holiday gifts!

  1. I plan on doing a majority of my shopping at Room Service and Salty Not Sweet. I’m also giving gift certificates from local restaurants such as Stino da Napoli. I guess I’d better make plans to do that this weekend!

  2. I spent a lovely afternoon with my mom strolling up and down Larchmere during its Holiday Stroll in combination with Bizarre Bazaar. I have also shopped at the stores on Coventry (just down the street from where I live). City Buddha, Mac’s Backs and Coventry Cats are favorites. I also bought plow service for my parents, which goes in the pockets of a local :-)

    I would love the coffeemaker. I asked for one for Christmas, but it was too expensive (we limit our gift giving to $100 per person in our family). But it’s on my want list for after the holidays.
