Happy Birthday (to ME) GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!

12 Aug

So maybe you heard, I had a birthday yesterday? No? Well, now you have!  Us Leos aren’t exactly known for being wallflowers….we love the spotlight and we love celebrating with those we are lucky enough to call friends and family.  On that note, I’m super excited to announce that as part of my birthday this year, I’m doing a few giveaways!

First up is a giveaway that starts today and goes till next Friday, being brought to you by a little hometown coffee company you may have heard of, Starbucks. :)

They recently did a complete redesign of their online store (see above), StarbucksStore.com, and to celebrate, they want to give one of my lucky readers $100 gift card (WHAT?!) to go splurge on the site!  I know, I’m very excited. It does kind of suck that I can’t win it for myself, but then again, I love sharing with my fellow coffee lovers, so I’m happy to give this away!

Want to win? Click through to get the dirt on entering…..

To enter this fabulous giveaway, follow these EASY steps:

  1. Head over to StarbucksStore.com and check out all the fun new swag.
  2. Find something you’d like to call your very own, and leave me a comment in this blog post with a link, and tell me what it is!
  3. One lucky winner will be drawn from all entries (one per person) that are submitted between 8.12.11 and 8.19.11.


Curious about the new online store? I was too, so I had them send over a few blurbs about what’s new:

·         Coffee and Tea Tours– Purchase a Coffee Tour or Tea Tour and explore different Starbucks coffees and teas.  Seven available tours allow customers to compare and contrast flavors to discover the nuances within a cup, making them the perfect gift – delivered right to their door!

·         Starbucks Reserve Coffees – StarbucksStore.com offers customers across the U.S. access to Starbucks Reserve™ coffee, otherwise only available in select U.S company-operated Starbucks stores. These exotic, rare, and exquisite coffees are hand-selected for their unique flavors and are available in limited quantities.

·         Coffee and Tea Subscriptions – Looking for convenience?  Customers can enjoy the luxury of setting up scheduled deliveries of coffee, tea and Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew right to their door as often as they like.  Experiment and get recommendations from our knowledgeable coffee masters.

SO, on your mark, get set, WIN!

Thanks for celebrating my birthday with me and I can’t wait to see what you guys come back with!

    Happy birthday, Siiri! Your great-grandma Sofia Keskimaki Sampson would pour you a cuppa for your birthday, from a copper kettle on the back of the wood-burning stove. She would serve you a slice of sweet cardamom bread and butter, and it would be sprinkled with sugar if you are still a kid at heart! SueS

    First, FREE 2 day delivery for Gold Card members? Thanks Starbucks!!

    Second, the boyfriend and his dad are BIG coffee fans. Whenever Dad visits they explore and compare coffee from different regions and with different roasts. We’re headed down there after Christmas and it would be so fun to try one of the Reserve coffees while we catch up.

    I want this awesome grinder so I can change the setting to grind my beans for my Toddy cold brew setup, my reliable MrCoffee or my french press!


    Who knew Starbucks was selling all this other stuff on their website?! Not me!
    (Great giveaway Siiri!)

    I love tea, but hate waiting for the pot to boil. Tadah!:


    And it controls water temperature, so the tea leaves won’t burn – great! Hehe, thanks for post, Siiri. :)

    I like that they sell starbucks cards. I love to have starbucks cards in low denominations ($5 and $10) on hand to give as thank yous. I like to leave them out with my money for my dog walker and I like to put them in thinking of you cards for my friends. So if I won, I would order a stash of starbucks cards to give to people to make them smile.

    Hey Siir, happy late birthday! Thanks for posting this giveaway from Starbucks – awesome! Two things in particular jumped out at me. (You know it’s hard for me to choose just one thing!) First, the oh so cute “classic” mugs:

    Secondly, I’m pretty much in love with the apple green 16oz stainless steel tumbler. I love that it can be used for both hot and cold beverages, that it would fit in my cup holder (why do they even make travel mugs that don’t!?), and that it seals tight and can be thrown into my tote when I’m on the go!

    Thanks again for the giveaway. I’ll be crossing my fingers!
