hi! let's have a giveaway!

If you've been around here for long, you know that I am always doing giveaways at other blogs {and I do have a giveaway at a super fabulous blog coming up later this week, so stay tuned!}.  But, I've never hosted one here.  Sort of by accident actually.  So, what better time than right now?!

The winner will get to choose any necklace from the shop.  I want to make it super fun, so I thought I would combine two of the things I am most passionate about: coffee and jewelry. 


{the Madison}

Lately I have been seriously addicted to Peet's Coffee Large Caramel Freddo.  Yum.  Honestly, I could have three a day, because they are that good.  Before that it was Starbucks Venti Caramel Frappuccino with an add shot affogato. {that means they throw a hot shot of espresso on top of the Frappuccino to make it extra strong...right up my alley}.

So, what is your drink?  I think it's fun to hear what other people drink at Starbucks or Peet's or Coffee Bean or wherever...so tell me yours in the comments below and you are entered to win!  I will add a $5 Starbucks card with your necklace when it ships!

Caramel Frappuccino®  Blended Beverage

If you don't drink coffee {what?  you don't drink coffee??}  tell me your favorite morning ritual.  Mine is, well...coffee.

I'll announce the winner here on Thursday night.

  1. I'm one of those who doesn't drink coffee!! I go so far as to not even enjoy the smell! That's usually what really gets people! ;D
    I don't know if I really have a morning ritual. One thing I do catch myself doing every morning it looking out the window. I like to see if it's sunny, rainy, gloomy, or glorious!

    Thank you for such a fantastic giveaway!!

    -Many Smiles!!

  3. I have been obsessed with Starbucks Venti Java Chip Frappuccino. Only downfall? They little chips gets stuck in my teeth. But I am MORE than willing to put up with that. :)

  5. I love the smell of coffee, I enjoy it occasionally (sometimes iced) but it does NOT like me.
    So I will drink tea, or more honestly...diet coke.
    It's "my" coffee.
    I tell that to those who judge me at 8am with a bottle of the liquid gold.

  6. Right now I'm living in a place with no coffee shop :(, but we love to make coffee at home. I particularly enjoy making iced coffee and adding a little Baileys! When I am around a Starbucks the Java Chip Frappuccino is always a fave.

  7. I am a follower and coffee lover.. around here Dunkin Donuts is our place to go. I love the french vanilla coffee. Yum!

  8. Love the necklace! I'm a high-maintenance coffee drinker {what more would you expect from a born and raised Seattle-ite?}. I order a tall, decaf, nonfat, extra-hot vanilla latte. Yum ... I could use one right about now.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I start out my mornings with coffee (heavy on the cream & splenda), made by my DH and put into a thermos for me. As soon as I power up my work computer, I pour my first cup. YUM!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm a Starbucks grande half-caff no whip iced mocha kind of girl. Mmmm just thinking about it makes me want one!

  15. I don't really drink coffee that often. Most of the time I only drink it if I'm in serious need of a perk-me-up or if I've had a bad day. Since the nearest Starbucks is about 25 miles from where I live and I very rarely get to stop by, I stick to a good ol' Caramel Frappe from McDonald's. It tastes just as good as anything else when I'm griping about my day.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I don't drink coffee, but LOVE the smell of it in the mornings. My husband drinks his coffee and I drink water, then Diet Coke. :)

  24. I must have Maxwell House International Cafe Vienna each morning! I know what your thinking...instant coffee...BLAH! Don't knock it till you try it. I am currently a single girl and do not feel the need to make a coffee pot full of coffee just for myself. On weekends...I often drive thru Starbucks for some white choc mocha and also recently tried a hot skinny caramel mocchioto and it was yummy too!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Caramel Frappaccino from Starbucks with extra caramel drizzled in the cup. I am a follower.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm not a coffee drinker but I do splurge around the holidays... I love Starbucks Eggnog Latte (decaf)!! Most mornings I drink OJ and water. Awesome giveaway! Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm a Starbucks addict. It's so bad that when my son was little his Thomas the train would stop at Starbucks. And my baby girl at 1 year old knew our morning ritual of walking to Starbucks and she would just start walking that direction automatically! It's a sickness I tell ya! I typically order a Vanilla Latte, hot if it's cool out or iced when it's hot out.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Not a coffee drinker. My morning ritual is pretty much just getting my daughter up and ready and then checking email.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm heading to Starbucks tonight with a friend and am looking forward to a carmel latte, but if they have a yummy seasonal flavor I might be persuaded :). Thanks for the giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. oh how cool! i LOVE me some coffee- sometimes i think i drink it allll day! :)) my fav is cinnamon dulce latte non fat of course, but still need to add that whip on top!! so backwards LOL! LOVE your jewelry! so unique and different and gorgeous! GORGEOUS!

    ReplyDelete
  31. mmmm.... I love all things coffee. I get excited when I go past a Starbucks. I love me a good latte :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Coffee is listed as one of my hobbies in my about me section. Oh I do love me some coffee. I typically get a grande non-fat (I don't like the thickness of milk) white mocha with whip. Sometimes decaf because I drink coffee for flavor. I love that at Coffee Bean I don't need to ask for non-fat because it automatically comes that way. I wish there was a Coffee Bean near by.

    Thanks for the giveaway. I am SUPER excited.

  33. I am all about White Chocolate Mocha's from starbucks, but when I am pressed for $ its all about my keurig!! Thank for the chance to win jewelry!

    ReplyDelete
  34. COFFEE ADDICTED here! I drink 12-18 cups a day! I drink it from the moment I wake until its time for bed. I don't do starbucks or any other coffee shop. HEB has a very good "home" coffee and I adore it! Over Folgers or anyone else. Some creamer (well, a lot of creamer, ha) and a little sugar. I'm such a coffee freak that I will drink cold, hot, warm, reheated.

    ReplyDelete
  35. My favorites are Caramel Macchiato & White Chocolate Mocha - just wish I got them more often - yum! :)

  37. I love to buy beans from our local roaster and brew them at home. If I buy it from a coffee ship I go for something with Carmel or mocha. In the fall I especially love Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Cute idea for a give away... I'm a follower and also catch your updates on Facebook...
    My morning cup o' joe has to be from Starbucks:
    Venti, NON fat, White Chocolate Mocha... hold the foam, yes I want WHIP and for the love of ALL things good in this world, PLEASE FILL IT TO THE TOP!! Nothing upsets this girl more than getting to the point to drink your coffee and finding out that you might as well have bought a grande. Hope I win!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm not a coffee drinker but I do love their Strawberries & Crème Frappuccino although I just recently realized how fattening it is. Bummer! So since I don't have a coffee ritual in the morning, I'd have to say my ritual is a nice bowl of Cheerios! Yummy! Thanks for the opportunity to win. I just love your jewelry but haven't been able to spend the extra dollars to own one.

  40. I am a brand new coffee drinker (I started a few months ago after moving to chilly MI from FL) and I am now addicted :) I love Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Latte, but I still need to be adventurous and try some others!!!

  44. Hi! I'm a new follower, thanks to my friend Janette @ The Johanson Journey. She should get bonus points for referring a friend. :)

    I'm not a coffee drinker. My go to drink is sweet tea. I drink it morning, noon, and night. If I really need a heavy dose of caffeine I'll drink a coke but not often. I do love the smell of coffee though. Wakes me up more just by smelling it! I would love to win something from your store and know someone that would love the Starbucks giftcard!

I love their warm Vanilla Steamer and their Chai Late. I love vanilla so the steemer is so good and toasts up my insides. And well chai, chai is like pumpkin pie in a cup.... what more could you ask for?!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I'm not a coffee drinker but I do have a favorite drink from Starbucks! I believe its a seasonal drink for winter! Its called Carmel Apple Spice! My friend Renee introduced me to the drink, She says it tastes like "Christmas in your mouth" LOL! I shudder to think of the calories in this drink cause it's so sweet it takes me until its cold to drink the whole thing! :P

    This is an awesome giveaway! I love your shop! Your jewelry is so cute and I love that it is personalized! :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. My favorite is a Starbucks Latte. Since I have a baby at home nursing, it's decaf currently. I so miss my caffeine. So most mornings I make a decaf with milk in our Keurig at home. On a warm day we walk to the local *Bucks for a Passion Tea Lemonade (unsweetened), it is so delicious. Have you tried it? Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  77. i always say that i'm going to try something different, but i almost always end up with a decaf white mocha...hot in the winter, iced in the summer. i'm pretty sure it has the most calories of anything on their menu. well done.

    yay for a giveaway! i hope i win!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Haha! I'm lds so I don't drink
    Coffee... Morning ritual is getting ready for the day/ work and then eating cereal while watching Access Hollywood. Haha... Kinda boring.

  80. I'm not a coffee drinker but every year I get so tempted by Starbucks' Gingerbread Latte and Peppermint Mocha that I have to have them at least once. There's just something about that time of year and those flavors that I can't resist. Thanks for the giveaway!

It is half dark chocolate and half white chocolate (get it??) mixed with caramel! So yummy!! I wish I could grab one and ship it off to you! You would want to find a way to incorporate the MJ into your daily coffee routine! DELISH!! Thanks for such a FUN giveaway! Who wouldn't want to own a Starfish Original??! =)
