Well this is super cool. I get a lot of emails from folks trying to get me to promote their products. So I was a little suspicious about this email from Then I went to their site and was blown away. They’ve got an awesome selection of modern furniture, home accessories and lighting from pretty solid brands like Knoll, Blu Dot, Alessi, Blomus. Well, they were gracious enough to let me select a product to give away for one of my contests. As a self admitted lover of coffee and coffee spots I thought I’d give away this dope Alfi thermal carafe (obviously I had a price limit). I stupidly didn’t think to ask for something for myself so I may have to enter the contest as well…

Anyway, the contest will be open for two weeks. Take a photo of your favorite spot in DC for a morning cup of coffee. It can be a balcony, like I often feature, or a spot in your house, in a park, anywhere in DC. Send a couple of lines of text along with the photo to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com explaining why it’s your favorite. I’ll select three finalists and we’ll vote on a final winner.

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
