Some people really don't like drinking water. If you fall into this category and live in a constant state of dehydration, you already know you need to try something else as a New Years resolution.

Nespresso Lattissima Espresso Machine with Milk Frother

While getting your morning coffee, it's pretty tempting to not jazz up your order with a shot of pumpkin spice or lavender syrup each time. But, as it probably comes as no surprise those syrups have an insane amount of sugar in them. Instead, put on your list this year a Nespresso, and you'll be making perfect lattes and cappuccinos from home in a jiff. We're all goo goo eyes over the fact that it has a milk frother. In the long run, you'll be saving loads of dough too once you become your own barista.
