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. Find out more about each of their programs by clicking here.

Now, to the most important part, the liqueur! I have to tell you this was unbelievable. One of my biggest complaints about liqueurs in general is that they can be too sweet and I have a hard time enjoying it. But this wasn't the case. It had such a light, sweet flavor and yet it was so rich at the same time. It goes down smooth and it's guaranteed to please your family, friends, or guests. It also would make for an excellent gift, or thank you gift of some kind. Over all, this is the best liqueur I've had in a while and I promise this is better than Bailey's ANY DAY. I wish they had this in every store.

The price? I would say it's about the cost I would personally usually purchase for liqueur's. It isn't out of range, in my opinion. I did a little hunt online for you to see where you can buy this and at BevMo.com, you can purchase this for $21.99 but unfortunately it's out of stock right now! I actually signed up to receive notifications for when they get it next. I was actually lucky enough to find this liqueur near ME (I live in Oregon) and so I'm very happy about this. If you want to purchase this amazing liqueur, I highly recommend checking out Wine-Searcher.com. I made it easy for you, too, so just click on this link.

Overall, I was so pleased with this drink. I definitely plan to purchase and enjoy this again. It was gently sweet, rich tasting, and far better than anything I've tasted in a while.

  8. You piqued my interest immediately when you touched upon how they give back. That is of UTMOST importance to me when I consider new brands. I have a BEVMO in walking distance and the hubs and I can use this for my signature "Toasted Almond Martinis." I will be purchasing! Thank you for the review - Heather, Life of a Traveling Navy Wife

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

The Best Gluten-Free Soup I've Had in a Long Time (And Giveaway]

​​​​​​​​ Since I've been gluten-free it isn't always to figure out easy lunch solutions. I'm not a huge fan of frozen options and I really don't think I've found the perfect, consistently amazing lunch time bread. And soups? Well, I haven't found my favorite soups yet either. Until now.
So I had the chance to try out Blount's Soups! I tried two different kinds - 
Tomato Bisque

Broccoli Cheddar



Here's what I thought:
The Good:
Theses soups are non-gmo, organic, and gluten-free. First, the tomato bisque. I found this tasted so good. I like when Tomato Soup is on the creamy side. And this was! I'm never a fan when tomato soup has more of a ketchupy, liquidy tomato flavor. But when it really tastes like a soup? Oh yum! 
For the Broccoli Cheddar, it may not have been as thick and creamy and cheesy as I usually love about Broccoli Cheddar, it was still really tasty. I just needed a bit more salt. 
The Not so Good
You know, not like I'm trying to avoid a…

Why You Should Buy Organic Coffee [and Giveaway]

I'm always on the organic route when I go into a grocery store, but I have only just recently heard that we really should be drinking organic coffee. I never really thought of this before and didn't realize the importance of choosing organic coffee until now.

One major reasons to drink organic coffee?

You avoid a good majority of the pesticides.

This is the main reason I choose organic produce. Did you know that coffee is known to be one of the most heavily sprayed crops? While many argue the roasting process eliminates the pesticide residue, this still doesn't leave warm feelings in my coffee pot about what the coffee bean could entail. (SOURCE)

It's also environmentally beneficial. Many conventional growers will clear out forests to make room for their crops. This eliminates natural pest killers like birds and other creatures and this leads to more pesticide use. Organic coffee is grown more naturally, maintaining the forest life in the surrounding area.
