I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I spaced out and forgot to post this yesterday, so I suppose this is technically a “Saturday Favorites” post. That really doesn’t have the same ring to it, though, does it? Without further ado, here are a few things that have made the list this week.
Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe
Y’all these things are really good. The combo of hazelnut, crisps, and milk chocolate is on point. They also look ridiculously fancy in their little gold wrappers and box, which makes them the perfect gift for the chocolate lover in your life. Basically, the KISSES Deluxe Chocolates are a delicious and thoughtful way to show your loved ones you care. This holiday season, KISSES Deluxe will allow people to “Say More”, stressing the importance of taking the time to talk with friends and family in more meaningful ways. It’s easy to get wrapped up in your day to day life and forget to make time for the people who mean the most to you. That’s where Hershey’s is stepping in to remind us all to express ourselves a little more often. Heartfelt stories will be shared through videos (like this one) and on Hershey’s social channels, along with information on how to #SayMore to the ones you love.
I know that this is a huge area I could stand to work on. I’m not the most affectionate person in the world and it’s easy for me to forget to tell people how I feel. I think if I were to sit my friends and family down and truly explain how much I care about them, they would keel over and die from the shock alone. The first person I need to put on that list? My husband, Ryne. Yep. He deserves the first emotional chat. Without him, I’d be lost, y’all. So that’s the plan. This season, I’m going to focus on saying “I love you”, “you mean the world to me”, and “thank you for all that you do” way, way more often. Who’s with me? There may or may not be a giveaway at the end of this post. 😉
Hilarious Family Portraits
My favorite photographer (and former coworker) took some amazing maternity/family portraits for us, but I couldn’t help but crack up at this one. It is so incredibly accurate. Maddux was absolutely wild that day and I was finding it less and less humorous as the shoot went on. He probably just told some kind of potty joke. We’re super into that right now. Embarrassing.
Pretending I Can Drink
Bring on the bubbles, y’all. I’m digging anything remotely sweet and sparkling right now. Am I counting down the days until I can have a mimosa? Of course. But I’m also really glad there are fruity, bubbly drinks I can have. Shout out to anything raspberry flavored. Mmm.
White Elephant Parties
I don’t care what anyone says. Forcing people to buy and receive horrible and/or awkward presents is the best thing on the planet. Ryne and I went to my work’s holiday party last night and we left with what is undoubtably the best white elephant gift I’ve ever seen. I’ll take some pictures and share soon!
An Excuse to use the Fireplace
The temps finally dropped below 60 degrees, so we’ve been turning the fireplace on in the morning. I swear it makes the entire house more cozy. I used to hate the idea of gas fireplaces, but I’ve realized that I’m not the “cut down a tree and light my own” kind of gal anyway. Flipping a switch? I can handle that.
I’m hoping we all agreed to work a little harder to make our loved ones feel appreciated this year. In addition to working on your relationships, you can win some chocolate for someone you love (or yourself – I won’t tell). You can enter to win one of 50 Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe 75- piece gift boxes! The contest closes on December 14, 2015. (I-C will randomly select fifty winners from all program entries and will handle fulfillment of the winning prizes.)
Good luck! Now it’s your turn: what is something you’ve been loving lately?
