#YourPerfectCup: Escape To An Oasis with Café Escapes K-Cup® Portion Packs | Birchbox #Giveaway!

It doesn’t take much for me to relax.  All I need is the beach, white sand and a good book. Oh and a nice drink — hot or cold, would be nice too.  Now that’s an oasis I’m talking about!

For this New York mom of 3, having a beach with white sand nearby is a dream.  So why not day-dream about escaping to the tropics with a nice mug of hot chocolate, chai latte or mocha.

Sounds good, right?

cafe escapesWith Green Mountain Coffee, Café Escapes, I can escape anytime with their line of rich, creamy and satisfying drinks.  You have a choice of four delicious flavors: Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa, Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa, Chai Latte and Mocha.

As a PROUD Keurig Ambassador, I had the pleasure of trying all of them and although I like them all, there’s one that stands out — my favorite one……


What’s not to love when you have hot cocoa and coffee combined!

Did you know Green Mountain Coffee spent years perfecting the taste and aroma to make the Mocha taste more like coffee? Too many times you’ll find Mocha tasting more like hot chocolate and never tasting the coffee.  I’m so happy they did being that I’m a coffee addict!  It’s my morning “drug!”

And now for a little explanation of BirchBox.


What is Birchbox?

Birchbox delivers the best products and the best insider secrets, without any fuss. Every month Birchbox members will receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver exciting products that fit into both your day-to-day routine, and into those days when you want to turn up the drama a notch.

Each month, you’ll receive a  selection of 4-5 samples that we’ve tried (and retried) ourselves.  You’ll receive anything from skincare to makeup to cult beauty tools, from well-known brands as well as emerging gems.

Monthly deliveries of high-end beauty samples from the newest and best brands, plus plenty of expert tips and tricks.

Earn dollars to spend in the Birchbox Shop with our generous Birchbox Points program. Shop, review products, or refer friends to rack up points.

In my opinion, BirchBox is one of the coolest inventions ever!  You get to try out samples from the best brands available each month for a year, with a paid membership of $10 a month.  If there’s something that you received and you don’t care for it too much, give it away! And for those samples you truly do love, order a larger size and earn points towards free stuff! I’m telling you, you can’t go wrong with BirchBox.


One very LUCKY New York Chica reader will receive a FULL YEAR membership to BirchBox! A $110 value!
