Giveaway: Starbucks Refreshers Good Energy On-The-Go Gift Pack - CLOSED

GOOD ENERGY. Ohhh, how I needed GOOD ENERGY last weekend. A lot of it too. Why? 'Cause of this little cutie! I attended Woofstock at Woodbine park last weekend with Winter, a fluffy "polar-dog" Samoyed :)

Because Winter is only 3 years old she's very hyper all the time...literally all.the.time. This video should give you an idea what I mean (she was given a doggie bone in the backyard).

So imagine her excitement at Woofstock. If Winter could talk she'd probably be freaking out like this: 


So yeah. That. For 3 hours straight. Three hours of Winter dragging me around Woodbine Park (but hey that's what leashes are for right? To drag humans around?) Winter does not get tired. No sirrrreeeeee!

Normally, a good 8-hour sleep gives me enough GOOD ENERGY to last the entire day but there'll still be times when I feel sluggish in the mornings so that's when I go for my White Mocha Americano at Starbucks (been drinking WMA ever since I started working). Power naps also work wonders in bringing GOOD ENERGY but the only downfall is that I sometimes wake up with a headache :( 

Anyway, I'm getting off tangent. What I'm trying to say is that even though I felt well rested that morning I was still beyond exhausted after Woofstock. I was hot, tired and thirsty, and just when I was about to head home I passed by a Starbucks booth at the park. They were handing out free samples of their ready-to-drink Refreshers. Perfect timing for a delicious pick-me-up! I've never had Starbucks Refreshers before that day so I tried all three flavours: Raspberry Pomegranate, Strawberry Lemonade and Blueberry Açai. All three were pretty tasty but my favourite is the Blueberry Açai (I fell in love with acai ever since I got introduced to it five years ago). These lightly sparkling Starbucks Refreshers are made with real fruit juice, B vitamins and naturally occurring caffeine from green coffee extract (which comes from unroasted 100 per cent Arabica coffee beans). Best thing: it's guilt free because there's only 90 calories per can!

To help spread GOOD ENERGY, I'm giving away a “Starbucks Refreshers Good Energy On-The-Go Gift Pack” with an approximate value $150! The gift pack includes a variety of must-haves for a daily dose of inspiration and good energy on-the-go:
