FabKids November Look Book

FabKids-November-Look-Book

This post is Sponsored by FabKids but my opinions are 100% my own!

I’ve been a fan of FabKids for a long time and I’m really enjoying these monthly look books!  If you’ve never purchased from them before, you can get your first outfit for only $15.00 + FREE Shipping!  They have so many cute clothes and my girls love them all!  If you are a regular reader of my blog, then you’ve probably been enjoying our picks each month from FabKids.  And while I’ve loved them all I will admit, I think these are my favorite ones yet!

FabKids November Look Book

For the November picks I decided to try one of their skirt outfits for my oldest.  She’s really into wearing skirts and now that it’s getting colder, we always pair them with some leggings – such a fun look!

2014-11-23 11.56.01

This skirt is adorable!  I’m not sure you can tell in the picture but it has layers of ruffles and is a great shade of dark blue, which is her favorite color!  The top has cute ruffles on the shoulder which I think adds a bit of extra style to the top.  And the glitter writing is exactly what my girls love!

2014-11-23 11.56.50

This is the Enchanted Skirt Outfit which is the Love Ruffle Tee paired with the Rose Print Tutu.  She’s going to be sad when she is too old for FabKid clothes, and so will I!  The quality of their clothes is amazing and I know I say that every single month, but it’s true.  The leggings are super soft and so are their tops!  The skirts have nice elastic waistbands so they will move along with them.

2014-11-23 12.01.35

This dress is probably one of my favorites yet.  The colors are perfect and the leggings match it so well.  Not to mention are the best color of green/blue ever!  It’s called the Green Loving Life Outfit and it’s the Heart Skater Dress paired with Fab Soft leggins.

2014-11-23 12.02.31

And I haven’t mentioned this before, but I love the length of FabKids dresses  They lay right above the knee which is perfect. Especially because my girls are really loving their tall boots this year so you can still get a peek at the leggings underneath.

2014-11-23 12.02.42

And yes, we did check the “Twirlability” once again of this dress and it also passed with flying colors.

Their sizes run from x-small to x-large and I find them pretty true to size.  The leggings have a nice length to them and since they fit snug,  they don’t look too long.

FabKids also has great options for boys every single month so be sure to check them out!   The holidays are coming, make sure you get the kids something cute to wear!

Holiday Traditions with Hickory Farms and their Signature Chocolate Collection

Holiday Traditions with Hickory Farms and their Signature Chocolate Collection

I love the holidays. It’s a great time to get together with family and friends, especially when we are so busy on a daily basis.  We don’t always take time to visit with loved ones but the holidays gives us a reason to stop and enjoy them.  It’s also the perfect time to set family traditions.  And while a lot of those traditions I grew up with have changed over the years, we still enjoy a few of them and I look forward to them every year!

One tradition we have for Thanksgiving, is my mom’s homemade stuffing!  She makes amazing stuffing that is full of so many yummy things, that it’s pretty much a meal on it’s own! But we still stuff ourselves with everything else on the table.  Even the years my mother doesn’t host Thankgiving, she still makes her delicious stuffing!

Thanksgiving is also the only holiday that my and my husband’s entire family are together.  Because our family has grown so much, we don’t get together for every holiday.  It’s just not possible.  But Thanksgiving is the one that we all eat together and I look forward to it every year!  There are 16 of us counting the kids and a few years ago we had to move it out of my mother’s house as her kitchen was getting to tight!   Now my sister-in-law and I take turns hosting it.

This year it’s my turn!

We base our holiday’s around food and always have the same thing.  I know my family is not alone in doing so – lets face it, the food is an important part of the day!  Oh, and the dessert too!  We always have a lot of that.

Something else that is usually in our holiday is a Hickory Farms basket.  I can remember from when I was a kid, getting one of these.  I think my parents used to receive one as a gift from one of my aunts and uncles growing up.  And we still always have one – we love their cheeses and sausage!!  It’s a taste we don’t find any other time, than during the holidays.  It’s like it’s a ‘taste’ of the holidays.

Chocolate Box Lid_10316

This year. we received a box of Hickory Farms Signature Chocolate Collection and it was the first time I’ve had them!  I seriously never bought a box or received one – it’s always cheese, sausage and crackers!  But not this year.  And boy was I happy to see that box of chocolate when I opened up the box!

Holiday Traditions with Hickory Farms Gifts

For more than 60 years Hickory Farms gifts have been a classic holiday tradition that brings family and friends together.  Many Americans have a distinct memory of Hickory Farms at their holiday gatherings; Hickory Farms is very proud to be a part of those nostalgic moments and continues to focus on and celebrate its long heritage of tradition and authentic holiday memories.  Hickory Farms not only embraces passing down traditions through generations of families, but also creating new traditions and sharing them with loved ones.

We all love chocolate.  But it has to be GOOD chocolate.  I don’t like the imitation stuff.  These chocolates are the real deal – and they were delicious!  The variety in this box is perfect to give you a bit of everything and to tease all your taste buds! While I loved them all, the salted chocolate was by far the best I’ve had yet!

Chocloate Full_10313

Not only where these chocolates delicious, but they were amazingly fresh and all the ingredients were top notch.  Honestly, it’s what I expect from Hickory Farms and they did  not disappoint!  I am trying to think who I could gift a box of these too, that would really appreciate some good chocolate!

Consider picking up a Hickory Farms basket for the hostess this holiday season.  You can purchase the online at HickoryFarms.com and in their nearly 600 Holiday Market stores and kiosks across North America, as well as in select retailers.  Our mall always has one set up.

Peanut Hottie – The First-Ever Hot Peanut Butter Drink {Giveaway}

  Peanut-Hottie

This post is Sponsored by Peanut Hottie but my opinions are 100% my own!

Peanut Hottie – The First-Ever Hot Peanut Butter Drink

An instant hot peanut butter drink may sound a little crazy, but after one sip of Peanut Hottie™, the first instant hot peanut butter drink the world has seen, the only thing that will seem crazy is that no one thought of it sooner. Peanut Hottie™ is the first of its kind – a rich and decadent hot peanut butter drink that has just hit shelves in Wal-Mart stores nationwide. Peanut butter is one of the country’s favorite foods and it will now be possible to enjoy a soothing hot peanut butter drink in an instant.

About Peanut Hottie

Peanut Hottie™ brings something completely unique and exciting as an alternative to hot chocolate, tea or coffee. Like instant hot cocoa, Peanut Hottie™ is a powder that is simply dissolved in hot water, but with a delectable peanut butter flavor and aroma that is totally new. At just 83 calories per cup, Peanut Hottie™ is a perfect low-calorie peanut butter fix, or a tasty treat for anyone looking for a caffeine free alternative to tea or coffee.

Lisa Gawthorne, Joint President, Bravura Foods and Peanut Hottie™ co-creator says “There is nothing else like this out there – I know because the idea came to me when I washed down a spoonful of peanut butter with a sip of hot tea and saw how delicious it was. I tried to find a product to recreate that flavor and nothing existed so we decided to make it ourselves. We didn’t stop until we had the perfect peanut butter flavor.” “Peanut Hottie™ is set to take the country by storm – there is no doubt it will be a very ‘hot’ new product that people will go ‘nuts’ for,” adds Karl Morris, Joint President, Bravura Foods and Peanut HottieTM co-creator

Want to try it?

Peanut Hottie™ is now available in Wal-mart in Peanut Butter flavor and Peanut Butter & Chocolate flavor in 9.15oz jars, which contain approximately 13 servings, for a suggested retail price of $4.78. Peanut Hottie is caffeine free, suitable for vegetarians and contains no artificial additives or colors.

I’ll admit, I was a little skeptic when I first heard about it…. hot peanut butter drink?  We are HUGE peanut butter fans so of course I had to try it.  I was pleasantly surprised.  It’s actually quite good and smooth.  Definitely something we’d buy again.

What do you think about drinkable Peanut Butter?  Would you try Peanut Hottie?
