Photo Diary: 2011 Home+Housewares Show

Last month I had the opportunity to attend the 2011 Home+Housewares Show at McCormick Place here in Chicago!

Last month I had the opportunity to attend the 2011 Home+Housewares Show at McCormick Place here in Chicago! I got a chance to check out some of the latest and greatest gadgets that are about to hit the shelves. The event was huge and very well executed and organized..

Check out some of my findings below…

I’m not really a coffee drinker but I’m so in love with Keurig! I think this machine is awesome, it makes coffee, hot chocolate, ice tea and more!!

I’m soo in love with this machine, I’ve been trying to get people to buy it for me but no luck ;(

I also got a chance too try out the Nespresso machine, which actually put me in the mindset of the Keurig machine except it doesn’t do everything the Keurig machine does…

I also got a chance to try the Sodastream Soda that you always see on the infomercials!


Sodastream Soda~It actually made pretty tasty soda!

Since I can be extremely lazy at times, I really liked the idea of the Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner!

I’ve always been a fan of De’Longhi appliances and now they are back with an all new colorful collection that I love!



I also came across the Nostalgia Electrics company, they sell some of the best old school machines!

I must get my hands on several of Nostalgia Electrics products... I loved the Cotton Candy machine!

For all my wine drinkers, you would love the Cooper Cooler

It's a rapid beverage chiller for when you need your drinks chilled fast!

Lastly, if you hate your Ex as much as the next girl, why not buy The Ex???
