Your Perfect Cup™ K-Cup® Ambassador Café Escapes® and BIRCHBOX

Being a Your Perfect Cup™ K-Cup® Ambassador has been one of the most incredible experiences this past year.  It definitely ranks up in my top 3 all-time best campaigns.  Green Mountain Coffee did things right and I got to experience tons of new  K-Cup’s I probably never would have gotten to try. When the campaign ends I am going to tell you what each month’s surprise was and share my top 5 flavors.

Like I said, Green Mountain does things right.  I think are psychic to some degree because since my surgery in late December I have been in need of pampering.  So, imagine my surprise when I got my shipment this month with spa slippers, Milk Chocolate bubble bath, Chai Latte lotion, a huge candle, a bag with some Birchbox goodies, and delicious Cafe Escapes.  Not only did they send us the Cafe Mocha, but they sent us both Dark and Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa, and Chai Latte.  I’ve been in heaven!

  18. Cheryl Lund says:

    Pampered~ I am a mom of two wonderful teenage boys, their father passed away a few years ago. My sons do their best to help me out around the house, as they will try to fix all the handyman things that need TLC, such as a leaky sink, mowing the lawn, painting the house inside and exterior, and other household repairs. I think that my sons need a little pampering as a way that I could show my support back to them, as a big thank you for all they have done to support me.
