Show us your favorite mug of coffee and smile for the chance to win $10,000 Grocery Gift Card and Other Sweet Prizes

Dunkin’ Donuts has announced an exciting new promotion! Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee lovers can “Mug Up” and
share a photo of their smiling face and favorite mug of coffee for the chance to win exciting prizes
including a $10,000 Grocery Gift Card, one-year supply of Dunkin’ Donuts packaged coffee and an
extra-large Dunkin’ Donuts branded mug.

Now through August 26, Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee fans are invited to enter the Dunkin’ Donuts Mug Up
Promotion by uploading a photo of themselves with their mug of coffee to www.dunkinathome.com. All
eligible entries will be entered in six weekly and one Grand Prize drawings. Winners will be randomly
selected on or about each Monday starting on July 22 through August 26, and the Grand Prize winner will
be selected on or about August 29, 2012. Participants are encouraged to check out the gallery of other
Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee drinkers and their mugs. For complete details, Official Rules and the entry form
for this promotion, visit www.dunkinathome.com/mug-up. Open to legal residents of the 50 United States
and D.C., 18 and over. Void where prohibited.

Whether you’re planning to upload a funny, crazy, mysterious or thirsty face to the Dunkin’
Donuts Mug Up Promotion, keep the following tips in mind:

1. Chin Up! Angle your forehead towards the camera to clean up the neck and jaw line. It feels
weird but actually looks good!
2. Master the 2/3 Turn. Instead of facing square to the camera, turn away from it about 45
degrees. It will appear to give you a slimmer profile.
3. Powder On; Powder Off. A matte finish on your face is essential to achieve a great portrait.
Use a powder with a yellow, rather than white tint, to avoid a white cast on your face from the
camera flash. Not using powder? Use a napkin to blot your face.
4. Experiment with Expressions. A smile is great but a compelling portrait doesn’t rely on saying
“cheese” for the camera. Act out different emotions and different moods to create a compelling
shot.
5. Have Fun. You always look your best when you’re enjoying what you’re doing. Let your hair
down, kick off your shoes, smile, and show off your pearly whites. Don’t forget to have a bit of fun.

Good luck!

Progresso Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Janet F. Congrats!

I like soup especially here in Chicago in the winter time. Nothing is better to warm you up from the inside out and if it is low in calories, even better! Did you know that Progresso Soup can help curb your hunger, and it is available in 40 delicious flavors that have 100 calories or less? With hearty ingredients like pasta, beans, corn and rice, and flavor-packed vegetables like tomatoes, carrots, and peppers, Progresso Soup varieties offer a good source of fiber and a full serving of vegetables. I always feel like Progresso Soup is the “adult” soup on the market. It is filling. It is good and very flavorful. It is just an added plus that it is low in calories.

Now, to help kick off a new outlook on the New Year, Progresso is excited to announce the return of the “Souper You™ Debut” contest! From January 3rd through March 16th, you and your readers can visit Progresso on Facebook to enter for the chance to win a full makeover in New York City. Three grand prize winners will be awarded a trip for two to New York City from May 20th-22nd. The prize includes roundtrip airfare, a two-night stay in an NYC hotel, a full makeover, a guided wardrobe shopping spree with a personal consultation at a New York City department store, and $1,000 in spending money. Once the 10 finalists are announced, you can visit Progresso on Facebook from March 30th through April 13th to vote for your favorite.

You can also visit the Facebook page to download a coupon for $1.00 off four (4) cans of Progresso Soup and to check out makeover videos provided by MyStyle.com and the Style Network. Be sure to also “Follow” Progresso on Twitter to keep up with the latest news from Progresso.

Since I have enjoyed the soup so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to get a Progresso “Souper You Debut” gift pack that includes a VIP coupon for a free can of Progresso soup, as well as a yoga mat, water bottle, set of aerobic bands, sport headband and two sport wristbands.
