The Calorie Counting Wine Glass *GIVEAWAY*

 Well, look what we have here:

While browsing Etsy (where creative awesomeness originates, proof HERE & HERE), I came across this ingenuity: a wine glass with some portion control. Obviously, this product was born out of necessity: a stay at home mother watching her weight for summer, and a best friend with a glass etching company. The idea was conceptualized and Caloric Cuvee was born.  Brilliant! 


In case you haven't noticed, I really enjoy wine. It is something that I truly began to appreciate when I spend 4 years living smack dab in the middle of South Africa's premier wine region. I've tasted wines from around the globe, visited numerous wine estates, taken wine classes, ran a trail race through wine country,  and even cultivated and harvested a small vineyard. 

our mini vineyard at our home in Constantia
Everyone has their indulgences, and wine is definitely something I will gladly splurge on. I love that the this glass has quick and easy measurement, not only for calories, but also for alcohol consumption.







I've been especially lax with my eating and drinking lately, but I'm planning on getting my act together after this weekend (BIG plans over here). That means that this guy will be getting some use since I have a Spring Break quickly approaching in March. I don't count calories, but this glass serves as powerful reminder of exactly how much I'm consuming.


****GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED*****
Now the fun part! The wonderful ladies at Caloric Cuvee have given me their signature calorie counting wine glass for me to give away to a Posh Meets Pavement reader. Since I can't give away an empty glass, I will pitch in a $20 gift card to Whole Foods* for the winner to get some goodies  .

How To Enter:
1. Leave a comment below telling me something your grateful for this week
2. Become a follower of  Posh Meets Pavement
3. Follow ME on Twitter (@Blazersandbows)
4. "Like" Caloric Cuvee on Facebook
5. On Etsy, add Caloric Cuvee to your favorites! (You will need to have an Etsy account)

You will receive one entry for each of the above entry methods. Please leave a separate comment telling me each of your entry methods. I will pick the winner on Wednesday, February 13th at 10AM Central. Giveaway is open to all US residents, ages 18 and over. *If the winner doesn't give near a Whole Foods, I will issue a $20 gift card to a store that they have easy access to. 




Caloric Cuvee also hooking you up with a discount. I think these glasses make fabulous gifts, so if you head over to Caloric Cuvee  you are going to get 15% off your purchase with the code: POSH15



Cheers!

I'm grateful for my boyfriend and the way he movitates me to stick with my goals, wake up early and get to the gym and because of this I've been able to lose a pesky 8 pounds that weren't budging! This glass would be great because I love wine and love to indulge but it would help remind me what exactly I'm taking in!
