Keurig Cafe Escapes

*Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post, to see how you can win a Birchbox subscription!

Ah, indulgences. It seems so rare these days that we can step back, take a deep breath, and truly enjoy ourselves. In an ideal world, we would all carry around our own little bubbles, to escape into when stress and the weight of the world becomes too great.

While reality is a bit harsher, I am certainly not giving up on my ability to both relax and indulge. It is possible, you know, to escape your environment with minimum effort. My new escape comes to me in the form of Keurig’s Café Escapes, a line of K Cup portion packs brimming full of decadent, chocolaty treats.

Anytime I find myself in need of some serious de-stressing, I shut the door to my room and pop one of those portion packs into my Keurig brewer. One dark hot chocolate later, I feel like a brand new woman.

I want you all to indulge too. Since sharing is caring, here is a code for 15% off any purchase at www.GreenMountainCoffee.com, with free shipping to boot. To take advantage, enter code AM0016-3599 at checkout. This code is valid through February 29th. Feel free to try one of the three Café Escapes flavors, or enjoy your own favorite blends.

And to further the spirit of indulgence, I’d like to offer one of you a subscription to Birchbox! Birchbox is an innovative, new way to try beauty products before you buy them, providing subscribers (that will be one of you with this giveaway) with monthly deliveries of samples from well-known beauty brands. Birchbox is an indulgence worth giving in to, so please allow me to be your delivery woman.

To enter the giveaway, tell me how you indulge. I will pick one answer at random to win in one week’s time. so March 6th. Good luck, and happy indulging!

    I indulge by doing my manicure and pedicure with fun new nail polish colors. 🙂 Sometimes while enjoying a good beer, too!

    My favorite indulgence is a huge glass of iced tea (with tons of ice), some amazing cheese and a baguette.

    My current indulgence is Girl Scout cookies. Thin mints, trefoils and do-si-dos. It’s a good reason to indulge, it supports a great organization and you can only get them for a short time.

    So many indulgences… but my favorite is a bubble bath. It is an indulgence that leaves me refreshed, relaxed & also energized… too bad my cookie indulgence does not have the same result 🙂

    I indulge doing what every beauty junkie does and that’s going from Sephora to Sephora, hitting up at least 5 stores in the Manhattan area in the course of a day. I spend hours applying and reapplying the newly released products from all the different brands and by the end of the day, as I’m on my way home, I get all these weird stares from people because as hard as I try, many of the waterproof eyeliners are very difficult to remove and my face looks like a rainbow of colors in all the wrong places. However, this really relaxes me so I don’t really care if they think I’m a nut. It’s also a great way to keep people away from you, which is something I appreciate when I’m in a stressed mood. Also, both hands have lines of colors from eyeliners that I’ve tested on them and being waterproof, most of the liners don’t come off my hands for days even with heavy washing. So I have striped hands, which always raises a few eyebrows, for a few days. At least I always get my own seat on the subway and bus because nobody wants to sit near me for fear of catching some sort of “tropical” disease! I also have to say that although I’m not a coffee drinker anymore because it makes me bounce off the walls, my friend has this exact Keurig coffee maker and when I had a cup of decaf, it was THE best coffee I have ever had. It was delicious, no clean up and there are so many choices of flavors that are all equally delicious. I wish I had noticed the code before the deadline ran out because I would have purchased, for sure, one of these babies. Drinking a cup of java from this machine is like nothing you’ve ever had before. I don’t know how they make it so delicious, but it must be the little lepruchun in the machine who blesses each cup (that was a joke). Everyone should get this coffee machine. You will NOT regret it. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway of a year’s subscription to Birchbox. What beauty junkie doesn’t love getting a beauty box every month in the mail? Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to possibly win this fabulous prize. Good luck to all.

    My mom loves her Keurig! I liked the hot chocolate cups as well, not really a coffee drinker. When it’s cold out I really enjoy a yummy hot chocolate with real whip cream. And I’m a big ice cream lover. Love sundaes or a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. Yum!

    I like to indulge by going out to eat breakfast on the weekend. A special splurge might be French toast with fruit & whipped cream and a side of bacon, or a waffle…. And pouring from an endless pot of coffee – with cream. Yum!

    Doing my nails is a huge indulgence for me. I have two small kids, so getting time to do my nails properly is almost non-existent. It’s a big stress reliever when I can actually find time to do them.

    I indulge with bi-weekly manicures. I will be a cheapskate on everything else, stretch out my hair trims, do my pedicures at home, skip out buying products until they’re on sale but I don’t skip the manicures!

    Dark chocolate in general, and chocolate drizzled caramel corn when I need some hardcore indulging!

    My indulgence is painting my nails- quite time by myself and I get to let my creative juices flow. It never fails to calm me down.

    My current indulgence is any type of “Peel Off Mask”. The winter in New England is harsh on my skin and its the perfect way to peel away the dry and dead skin allowing me to moisturize the healthy skin below.

    My favorite indulgence is chocolate– any kind, no preference! Being pregnant, I should really “limit” these indulgences!! 🙂

    Getting to do my nails while watching my “guilty pleasure” shows (Toddlers & Tiaras, Real Housewives of anywhere) & sipping some french press coffee or a glass of wine. Either before a long day or at the end of one, taking an hour to do those things almost always ensures I won’t unnecessarily snap someone’s head off

    Once in a while after the kids go to bed and before hubby gets home from work, I like to pour myself a glass of wine and make myself up a plate of cheese, and fruits and french bread then either watch something on tv “I” wanna watch or mess around on my computer in silence and interruption free

    Painting my nails while watching RuPaul’s Drag Race! It’s like Project Runway with drag queens – my ultimate guilty pleasure.

    My favorite indulgence is a bit of good dark chocolate or going for a pedicure. If time is short, I do my own pedicure at home but take the time to soak my feet, exfoliate, moisturize & then paint! Another favorite indulgence it to browse the beauty counters at Nordstrom or Sephora! A beauty treat usually comes home with me!
    Lovely giveaway! Thanks to you, Green Mountain & Birchbox for offering this!

    and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not
    sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.
