Perfect Host and Hostess Gifts for New Year's Eve

I have worked in collaboration with one of our partners to provide you with the below post.

It’s almost time to say goodbye to 2017, and if you’re headed to a party dedicated to end-of-year revelry, make sure you don’t show up empty-handed. You’ve got the dress, you’ve got the makeup look down, but do you have a host or hostess gift ready to go as well? Your host is working hard to decorate their home, cook, and show you and the rest of their party guests a good time, so show your appreciation for their hospitality with one of these fantastic gift ideas – and ring in the New Year the right way.


OMG! An Emoji-Themed Kid's Birthday Party

My oldest just turned 8!  I can't believe this is the 8th birthday party we've done for him, and am acutely aware that he may not want me to throw him a themed birthday party much longer.  But for now, while he still embraces it, I'm going to continue embracing it in all the Pinterest-scouring glory.  The theme G chose this year was especially fun: emoji!  Save yourself the Pinterest scouring, and get all my recommendations for throwing a fab kid's emoji-themed birthday party.

Dark Chocolate Caramel Corn Fudge Recipe - A 3-Ingredient Alternative to Christmas Cookies

Disclosure: I received Eagle Brand products for review purposes.  The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I don't know about you, but I am getting a little cookied-out.  This time of year is all about cookies - cookie exchanges, cookies for Santa, baking mass amounts of cookies for friends and neighbors; you get me.  Now, I love cookies, but we need to mix it up once in a while. 

If you still have holiday desserts to make or exchange, let me offer you an easy and amazing way to mix it up with this three-ingredient fudge recipe!  Yes, you heard that right.  Three ingredients!


Quick and delicious? Yes, please! My review of Sandwich Bros. Sandwiches

This is a sponsored post with Sandwich Bros. and BraVoMark.  All opinions are mine.

I have found a new snack that my whole family loves: Sandwich Bros. Sandwiches.   These frozen flatbread pocket sandwiches are really tasty.  Deceptively tasty, in fact, given that they are frozen, but it wasn’t much of a surprise after all when I learned that they are made with real meat and Wisconsin cheese.  We tried the Chicken Melts, though they also carry Angus beef cheeseburgers, gyro sliders, breakfast sandwiches, and more.  I found them in the freezer section of my local Walgreens, but you can also find them at Kroger, Costco, and other retailers nationwide (click here to locate where Sandwich Bros. is sold near you).  Read on for my full review, then click here for a printable coupon when you are ready to try them for yourself!  I am also giving away coupons for two free 4-packs of Sandwich Bros. Sandwiches this week!  See details on the giveaway at the end of this post.


Family Recipe: Coquito (Puerto Rican Eggnog)

As a Puerto Rican, it officially feels like the holiday season when you make your first batch of coquito.  Coquito is Puerto Rico's version of eggnog, using rum (Puerto Rican rum, naturally) and coconut milk.  Today I am sharing my family's recipe for coquito (Puerto Rican eggnog), as taught to me by my father.    

Coquito is a delicious blend of the spices you love and savor this time of year (cinnamon and nutmeg) with a Caribbean spin.


Fab Everyday 2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Disclosure: I received some of these items as free samples for review purposes.  The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.  I was not financially compensated for this post.

There are people on my list that I struggle with gift ideas for each year.  I like to find things that are useful (but still fun - something they might not get for themselves), cost-effective, and unique (not the same old sale item that everyone else found on Black Friday or Cyber Monday).  For those of you who go through the same struggles, I have rounded up some unique and cost-effective gift ideas for a variety of your friends and loved ones.  I hope you enjoy the Fab Everyday gift guide!
