My New Keurig + Mug Swap

Disclosure: The Coffee Mix sent me some Keurig k-cups in exchange for mention in this post.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I purchased a Keurig brewer last weekend as an early birthday present to myself. I had been researching the different models and k-cup varieties for awhile before I decided to get serious about it. Everyone I talked to on ranted and raved about how much they loved theirs so when I came across this awesome deal at Sam’s Club, I went for it.

Keurig Signature

Let me just tell you that I can’t believe I waited this long to buy one. Yes, I really do love it that much and totally understand how a few of you called it “life changing”. I’ve used my Keurig every morning this week and take my drink with me to campus. I also love that it has the auto-on feature so it warms up as I get ready in the morning and the auto-off is great in case I forget to turn it off on my rush out the door.

As for drinks, I’m totally loving how I can have a chai latte one morning and a caramel cappuccino the next. I purchased an 18 count “You Pick” k-cup variety pack from The Coffee Mix and am SO happy I did. {Check their FB page for deals and coupons!} As a newbie, I was so overwhelmed by all of the flavors and didn’t know which one I would like and which ones I wouldn’t. By building my own variety pack I was able to try a bunch of different varieties and find out the ones I really love.

Speaking of cute mugs…last month I signed up for a #VDAYMUGSWAP hosted by Rags to Stitches and Sew Caroline. This was wayyyyy before I did my DIY polka dot coffee mug {seen above} but I’ve always wanted to do a mug swap. I love coffee and I love mugs, so why wouldn’t I love a mug swap?

I was paired up with Melis from Mila Rose Designs and was so thrilled to make a new friend in the blogging community. Not to mention a gal who loves caramel and Reese’s as much as I do. After stalking her blog for a few weeks, I finally set out to find her the perfect mug and include some edible goodies too. Be sure to pop over to her blog to see what I sent her!

As for what Melis sent me, she did such an amazing job! Wait a minute, Hot Tamales, Reese’s, AND Blow Pops all in one package…day made. She also picked up a gorgeous polka dot mug from Anthropologie that I haven’t stopped using. Isn’t it adorable? I am in love with the bright yellow color and I own absolutely nothing like it. She was also so sweet to include a headband from her handmade shop!

    What model did you end up getting? (I can’t tell or can’t see it on the box). I’ve seriously yearned for one for a long long long time, but am torn as to which one!! Some get great reviews and others not so much…
