Amarula Cream Liqueur - Perfect Celebration Drink!

I had the wonderful opportunity to try the Amarula Cream Liqueur and I couldn't wait to share my experience with you. One thing I learned from drinking this liqueur is that Amarula is made from a fruit called "marula" found in Africa. Found in South Africa (as well as Botswana, Swaziland, Namibia, and Zimbabwe) marula trees grown in abundance. They are beautiful trees and drought-resistant. The fruit from the tree (the marula fruit) is a sweet, tropical fruit. It has a citrus tang and a creamy taste. Actually it makes for a perfect liqueur in my opinion. Amarula isn't just for their incredible liqueur. They also do amazing things for the region. From the women's job creation project in Western Cape communities, Amarula Elephant Research program, and so much more, there is an even bigger reason to purchase this Amarula liqueur than just it's amazing taste.

Canyon Bakehouse Gluten Free Bread Review [And Giveaway] [Ends 12/21]

It's really hard for me to find gluten free bread that tastes good. A lot of the bread out there these days just doesn't work as toast or has an awful texture. That's why I was so excited to try the Canyon Gluten Free bread! I have to say this is by far the best I've tasted so far. In fact, I've even ordered from them on my own off their website (yup, it's that good). What I love about Canyon Gluten Free is that it is owned by people who know what it's like to have to deal with being gluten-free! Christi Skow, the co-owner , was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2007 and she appreciates gluten free foods that "are delicious and healthy." I had a few of their products sent to me - 7 Grain Bread Cinnamon Raisin Mountain White Rosemary & Thyme Focaccia Personally, of the four products, I loved LOVED LOVED their focaccia bread. I had this with scrambled eggs in the morning and dipped the bread in olive oil and it was A-MAZ

This movie has taken OVER the holiday season and if you've run out of options for a Frozen gift, here's one to add to your shopping list, especially for this last minute holiday shopping weekend.

It comes with a poster, a sticker, an ornament, a CD, and an 64-page magazine filled with behind the scenes info, games, quizzes, and so much more. Personally I haven't had the opportunity to watch the movie yet, but I've heard the music and it's SO adorable. I looked through this ZinePak and it's so much fun. I love the behind the scenes information and the actors who get to talk about their character and who they play.

Old Factory Candle Gift Set - Best Smelling Candles. Ever. [Giveaway Ends 12/12]

My mom and I absolutely LOVE candles. I love the ambiance they put across. I love how they smell. It just sends off a serene relaxing vibe that I really enjoy. There are only a few candles out there that we have bought though that I've ever had the opportunity to compliment the smell. I mean candles smell good and all but I've never thought...WOW. Until now. I received three an Old Factory Candle Gift Set to try and ladies and gentleman these were AMAZING. These smelled like - WOW. I tried the holiday scents (I almost wanted to say FLAVORS because they smell so good I fought the urge to lick the candle). The Winter Wonderland gift set included the scents Hot Cocoa, Roasted Chestnut, and First Snow. The Hot Cocoa actually made the apartment smell like chocolate cake. I kid you not. The Roasted Chestnut had a sweet, spicy vibe to it as well. The First Snow smelled clean and very nice. Also, the best thing of all is that these burn for quite some time. My bigg

Mrs. Cavanaugh's Chocolates - Review - Buy One Get One Free Deal Inside!

A couple of weeks ago, I introduced you to Mrs. Cavanaugh's Chocolates, a chocolate company started 1972 by Mrs. Cavanaugh herself.  I love the history by how this company started. Make sure you visit their website and read more about their history . I tried these chocolates over the Thanksgiving break. It was the perfect chocolates to share with my family and serve as a evening treat following all the goodies we already enjoyed that day. We sampled the four different chocolate bars and the box of chocolates that I received. Let me say...Oh. My. Gosh. This was incredible chocolate. Now, I heard some other people who reviewed this chocolate say this was too sweet. For me, I don't think I've ever said anything was too sweet, so take that into consideration. I tried the Caramel Candy Bar, White Chocolate Almond Coconut Candy Bar, Mindy Mint Candy Bar, and the Dark Chocolate Almond Candy Bar . Of the four, I personally enjoyed the Caramel Candy Bar. This had amazing go

Perfect White Elephant Gift - Holiday Tumblers Review and Giveaway

One of the things on my must-have holiday list are holiday tumblers! I LOVE having them on hand and something about being able to take my coffee with me on the go is so appealing (my late night shopping trips TOTALLY got an upgrade). Anyways, I had the chance to try out the Holiday Tumblers made by Reduce Base Brands,  a company started in 2006 that make attractive eco-friendly products designed to help consumers "turn over a green leaf." I don't know about you but one of my main goals this next year is to get much more eco-friendly and this is one step in the right direction. The holiday tumblers come in a variety of colors - perfect for this season! They are 16 ounces, double walled insulation to keep your drink warm, and BPA free inside and out. Also, they fit into most car cup holders and their open close lid limits spills! (It really does, I am well known for sloshing my mug of coffee a lot). I absolutely loved this. The most important thing about tum
