I am so excited!! I got picked for a Holiday VoxBox. You're probably thinking what the heck is that? A VoxBox comes from Influenster and has wonderful things inside. It includes full sized product to try and then give your honest opinions about.
The reason I'm excited...(besides that I get to try brand new beauty products) is this is my very first VoxBox. I learned about Influenster in mid October. I signed up...not really know what it was. Since then I've watched a lot of YouTube videos to find out what a VoxBox is. Once I get mine you'll get to see exactly what it is in a few days. So if you like getting new products...and don't mind being vocal in your opinion about them...you should definitely check out Influenster. :)
So remember that giveaway I held a couple of months ago? Frito-Lay sponsored it. And as a blogger I had to submit a recipe. While I didn't win....they just published an e-cookbook of the recipes.
And guess who's recipe is the very first one listed? That would be mine. :)

So I was lucky enough to be sent some bottles of Torani syrup for the holidays. And since coffee is a staple in this household, it was the perfect thing. :) As you can see they sent 2 huge bottles of hazelnut and gingerbread. Everyone here is in drink heaven. They also sent me a cute little recipe book and some free product coupons. Torani syrups are a great way to add more flavor to your favorite drinks.
We actually love coffee, tea and all things like that at my house so much that we have a Bodum hot water kettle. It boils water in no time flat. Which sure comes in handy. And we always make coffee using a Bodum french press. This allows us to get all the great tasting oils in the coffee into our cups instead of being stuck in a silly paper filter. This is actually going to be a pot of Choffy. Choffy is organic roasted cocoa beans that you brew like coffee. It has none of the side effects of coffee and has a fantastic chocolate taste.
There truly isn't anything better than a hot cup of Choffy with some hazelnut syrup. Torani flavored syrups are available in over 122 flavors, which include regular and sugar free varieties. Please go to www.Torani.com to see all the flavors. As a special offer you can use the code "shespeaks" to get 10% off your order.

Vitacost has this great offer going right now, that if you sign up through my referral link here you'll get a $10 credit to spend on all kinds of great organic things. You'll end up paying $4.95 on shipping when you order less than $49. But it's still a great deal.
I just signed up and I'm planning on using mine to get some Bob's Red Mill products for a fraction of what it would cost me in the store. :)

Recently I got the opportunity to host a party to see if friends could tell the difference between Black Box wines and wine out of a bottle. I'm happy to say that no one could tell a difference. And they actually preferred the Black box wines to others. I used Rieslings as those are my favorite type of wines and go best with spicy foods. You should definitely try these out.
They're also a great deal price wise. When I bought mine it was $16.99 for a Black Box wine (which has 4 bottles of wine inside). Even being a devoted coupon user I can't find a better deal than that on a good wine.
*Bzzagent sent me the samples for this review (rebates). All opinions are my own.
