Keurig & NEW Lipton K-Cups – Perfect for the Holidays (Giveaway)

November 24, 2013 by  
Filed under food, giveaways, household

I’ve always been more of a coffee drinker but thanks to the new Lipton Tea K-Cups I’ve found myself enjoying hot and iced teas more and more these days.

We all know Lipton as America’s iconic tea brand and thanks to a partnership with Green Mountain Roasters we can now brew a fresh cup of tea in no time! There are 3 different varieties for you to enjoy . . .

  • Refresh: This crisp and refreshing iced sweet tea is made of fresh pressed tea leaves and sweetened with cane sugar. Fresh brew over ice for an easy and refreshing mid-day uplift.
  • Indulge: Tea drinkers can savor the taste of rich black tea from fresh-pressed tea leaves, blended with delicious natural flavors for an indulgent aroma and taste.
  • Soothe: The smooth green tea is made from tender green tea leaves, herbs and other natural flavors. The delicate taste of Soothe green tea is an invitation to relax.

Now, I had the opportunity to try all three varieties and  have to say that my favorite was the Lipton Refresh. It’s the perfect afternoon pick-me-up before I have to get the kids from school. I like that it’s already sweetened but not overly so since I like to be able to taste the tea and not the sugar. Of course, the Lipton Indulge was great, too, with a hint of vanilla. The Lipton Soothe had an interesting mix of citrus and mint.

However, the best part of these new Lipton Teas is that they’re available in K-Cups! Talk about quick and convenient! Just a push of a button and I can get a perfect cup of ice tea in seconds. You can drink them hot or over ice. Pour it into a travel mug and you’re all set for the day. I can’t even imagine using a traditional coffee/tea maker anymore.

Lipton K-Cups are available in 10-count, 16-count, and 22-count boxes at your local grocery store.

So with the busy holiday season coming up, why not stock up on your favorite Lipton Tea to help you get through your hectic day!

TERRO Home Insect Killer (Giveaway)

July 7, 2012 by  
Filed under giveaways, household

When it comes to insects, I’m pretty much a wimp. I still remember once when Kacie was a baby and I saw a huge roach crawling on the kitchen floor. I was so freaked out that I threw a bowl over it and stayed in the bedroom (with Kacie) for the rest of the day until DH came home to get rid of it. Even then, he had to show me that he actually killed it before I agreed to go into the kitchen again.

Well, with TERRO Home Insect Killer I now have peace of mind knowing that I won’t be finding any creepy crawly creatures in my house.

TERRO, a leader in DIY pest control products, has added Home Insect Killer to their extensive line of pest control products.   For outdoor and indoor use, the product’s long-lasting action kills cockroaches for up to 12 months and flies for up to 150 days after spraying.  The non-staining, odorless insect killer is also effective against more than 65 different types of insects including roaches, ants, ticks, spiders, pantry pests and bedbugs.

Using TERRO Home Insect Killer is so easy to use. Just remove the attached nozzle from under the handle, stretch out the tubing, and stick the end into the top opening of the gallon container until you hear a click.

Then just press the trigger and dispense wherever you feel it’s needed . . . between the cabinets, under the stove, doorways, cracks, etc. Then go outdoors and treat areas that you know insects hide and breed. For me, I also sprayed around the perimeter of the house and outside the doorways.

I also looked for any ant hills since Summer seems to bring them out in full force. In the past, I’ve tried other bug killers, ant chalk, and those baits that they’re suppose to take back to the nest with them but nothing completely eliminated the little buggers like TERRO did.

It’s been about a week since I first treated our home with TERRO and I have to say that I’ve noticed a difference. When I turn on the lights in the morning I no longer see those tiny roaches on the counter and best of all . . . no ants! TERRO is great to use indoors since there’s no staining, no odors. Plus, the label says that it’s supposed to work up to 12 months which means I can treat once and then forget about it for year. Gotta love that!

TERRO is the only insect killer that I use and trust.
