Wow, the holiday season is just around the corner! I will not tell you the exact day count until Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I am sure someone else online will in the next few days! But I am personally pretty excited about the next few months. We have some fun travel planned, my FindingVegan.com iPhone App should be launching, my cookbook 2015 excitement keeps building and of course holidays mean hours of fun kitchen time and cooking, which I obviously adore. Sprinkle in some holiday music, snowflakes (or raindrops) and a crackling fire and I am set. Oh, and hand me a mug.
Among all those festive holiday goodies and activities, one cozy activity to love: holiday hot beverage breaks. Here are my top ten ways to cozy up to a warm mug. Plus watch my Festive Finds video as I sip enjoy brunch at Nespresso’s Beverly Hills Flagship Boutique and then frolic through Sur La Table at the Farmer’s Market in LA.
Giveaway! And enter to win a $300 VertuoLine Nespresso Machine. I own one and adore it!..

About the Prize: VertuoLine Machine.
VertuoLine from Nespresso is an intelligent and innovative single serve system delivering richly aromatic, deeply flavored, crema-topped large cup coffee and espresso. It makes both 8oz. coffee and 1.35oz espresso. You can choose from a wide variety of Nespresso’s capsules, each with unique flavors and distinctions.
I have been a long-time Nespresso fan. My husband and I’s first wedding gift back in 2006 was a Nespresso Romeo machine. We have been hardcore Nespresso fans ever since then! Our Nespresso and our Vitamix machines get priority placement in our kitchen when it comes to counter-top cooking appliances. I adore the VertuoLine machine, you can watch me use it in the video here and read my review here.
So while you guys know I am a daily tea drinker, and treat myself to coffee only a few times a week, mostly on weekends, Nespresso offers an ideal answer for when guests come over who only want one cup, or if my husband wants to whip up a soy cappuccino before work.
disclosure: The prize and my Festive Finds Shopping Day were sponsored by Nespresso, but all opinions are my own. Thank you to sponsors who bring me fun giveaways to share with my readers!
