Thank you to Keurig and HGTV for sponsoring this post
Let’s talk about home gadgets shall we? Did any of you ever watch the Nickelodeon movie growing up called Smart House? The plot is based on a home that is outfitted head to toe with tech capabilities that seem like something from the Jetsons. Well, I cant believe how far we have come toward making a futuristic movie like that a reality. Today, there are so many amazing home tech products on the market to make life simpler and easier and I wanted to share a few of my favorite picks with you!
If you know me personally, then you know that I am a coffee girl through and through. I have tried all sorts of coffee brewing techniques over the years from french press to pour over and of course Keurig! So when Keurig asked me to partner with them for the launch of their newest K-Café® Single Serve Coffee, Latte & Cappuccino Maker (here) I was thrilled to try it out! I mean… you are telling me that I can make lattes and cappuccinos at home from now on? Game changer.
This coffee system couldn’t be easier or more delicious! It uses the same Keurig technology that we all already love…. you pop in your favorite pod and the flashing buttons prompt you to click on the selections you want to brew your favorite coffee or strong shot in minutes. Next, if it is a latte or cappuccino that you are craving, you simply pour your milk of choice (nut and soy milk are just fine!) to the fill line in the frother… follow the flashing button prompts and viola!! You are officially your family’s favorite barista! It really is so simple, plus you have free range to choose the coffee (even decaf), milk and add-ins of your choice from the comfort of your own kitchen! It even has the ability to make cold ices lattes and cappuccinos - I’m a fan!
Another favorite gadget of mine is the google home. I love having the capability to simply ask a question like “hey google, what is the temperature outside?” without having to search for my phone. You can also set google to turn on and off devices in your home like your lamps or a fan simply by plugging those items into a smart plug and you are all set! No more fumbling with the lamp switch in the dark!
A few other favorite home tech devises are Furbo Dog Camera - remotely check on your pup, talk to them and even send them a treat no matter where you are! No more mom-dog guilt when you are at the office. Ring doorbell is another good one… it is an app enabled doorbell so you can see who is at the door from your phone, even if you aren’t home. Nest thermostat is another favorite… with Nest you can remotely change the temp in your home from your phone. So no more worries if you forgot to turn the air down before leaving town…. OR have you ever been in bed, freezing, wishing that you could turn the heat up a bit, but also dreading venturing out into the cold? Well, Nest is for you then.
Another thing you may or may not know about me is that I am not know for my tech-savvy abilities haha. I am typically the last person to upgrade my phone and the last person to know about the latest and greatest gadgets. BUT when it comes to helping myself (and my clients) find ways to make they home life easier and more efficient I am all ears. Which is why I am really looking forward to the upcoming Smart Home Special on HGTV on April 26th at 6pm! Did you know that starting today you can enter their sweepstakes to WIN a smart home of your very own?! (Enter Here) How cool is that?
Even cooler is the fact that Keurig has offered to do a giveaway with me!

I have been loving mine and I am so excited to offer one to one of you! To Enter, simply leave a comment on my Instagram post (here) and tag 5 friends who are coffee lovers. Good Luck!
