Celebrate Valentine’s Day With Dunkin’ Donuts! #DunkinDate

(I received a gift card to facilitate my review for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

Can you believe that Valentine’s Day is tomorrow? I feel like it crept upon us so quickly this year! Whatever your Valentine’s Day plans may be, you will definitely want to include Dunkin’ Donuts in the special day! They are celebrating by offering adorable heart shaped donuts and donuts with sprinkles and delicious fillings!

Choose from donuts like Brownie Batter filled, Pillow Talk, Vanilla Truffle filled, Pretty in Pink and so much more. Varieties may vary by location. You will also be excited to know that Dunkin’ removed all artificial dyes from donuts last month! 

I picked up some of the heart shaped donuts this morning for my boys as a special after-school treat this afternoon. They are going to be so happy! Of course, I had to grab an iced coffee while I was there! Whatever your day brings tomorrow, be sure to stop by your local Dunkin’ for a coffee or donut and celebrate with your special someone.

Tampa Bay area readers, be sure to tag your Dunkin’ date photos on Facebook and on Twitter with the hashtag #DunkinDate! You can go directly HERE to the DDTampa Twitter page and tell them who your favorite #DunkinDate is!

Stay tuned for more fun offerings from Dunkin’ in the very near future! In the meantime, stay up-to-date on all of the latest Dunkin’ events and offers by following them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone and be to sure to Share the Dunkin’ Love!  💕❤️

I’m Running on Dunkin’ Donuts This Holiday Season!

(I received a gift card to faciliate my review for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

I don’t know about you, but I am officially in holiday mode right now! It has been a busy few weeks planning and preparing for Christmas and finishing up some last-minute work projects for 2017. I think that it is safe to say I am running on Dunkin’ Donuts! I have stopped by Dunkin’ Donuts several times these last few weeks to fuel up on my favorite holiday-flavored coffees and lattes!

I love the new holiday-themed flavors this year! Peppermint Mocha, my personal fave, combines cool peppermint and rich chocolate flavors. The Brown Sugar Cinnamon, brings together the sweet taste of brown sugar and the flavor of cinnamon. Both flavors are available in Dunkin’ Donuts’ hot or iced coffees, lattes, macchiatos and Frozen Dunkin’ Coffee. In addition, Dunkin’ has brought back their festive holiday cups. This year, they feature a festive design and the simple word, “Joy” to convey the happiness and spirit of the season. This year’s design incorporates seasonal graphic icons like snowflakes, peppermints, holly leaves and holiday trees to stir up the warm, nostalgic feelings associated with this special time of year.

If you are a Dunkin’ Donuts doughnut lover, they have something for you as well! A holiday trio of seasonal donuts, highlights Dunkin’s merry menu. The new Frosted Sugar Cookie Donut is a frosted donut with cookie dough flavored filling and topped with crumbled frosted sugar cookies, while the new Gingerbread Cookie Donut features a caramel frosted donut sprinkled with ginger snap cookie topping. Dunkin’ Donuts also has the Snowflake Sprinkle Donut, a frosted donut with red icing and special snowflake sprinkles, and Snowflake Sprinkle MUNCHKINS, featuring the brand’s chocolate glazed MUNCHKINS donut hole treats rolled in snowflake sprinkles.

Be sure to stop by your local Dunkin’ Donuts while you are out with friends and family this holiday season and fuel up on these delicious treats!

Have you heard of Travel Bingo before? What are you thoughts on this fun game?

Review of Christmas Forest Alpine Christmas Wreath + Giveaway!

Disclosure: I was provided a wreath from Christmas Forest in exchange for my honest opinion. All thoughts are my own. (Please see my disclosure policy) 

One of the things that I love most about the holiday season is the smell of a fresh cut Christmas tree. The smell of evergreen lingers in the air and it cannot help to put a smile on my face! While I may not always be able to have a fresh cut Christmas tree here in Florida, I can have the smell of Christmas thanks to the beautiful wreaths from Christmas Forest!

What is Christmas Forest? “It is a place where magic happens every day, and the sights and scents of the holidays are alive year-round. From their very first handmade Christmas wreath sold back in 1976 at Pike Place Farmer’s Market until now, they have made it their mission to bring the very essence of Christmas into every wreath that we create. Alive with the fresh evergreen scent of the Cascade Mountains, each of their handcrafted wreaths is a one-of-a-kind creation, and a unique representation of who they are.” 

I was given the amazing opportunity to feature Christmas Forest in my Holiday Gift Guide this year and they were so generous to send a wreath to review. Christmas Forest sent me their Alpine Wreath and it is absolutely stunning! The pictures do not do it justice. In addition, the smell of Christmas is now in the air throughout my house! It definitely puts me in the Christmas spirit! The front of the box that the wreath was shipped in was too cute and has the fun message pictured below. My 6 year old really thought that the wreath came from Santa and his elves! How cute is this?

 

The Alpine Christmas Wreath looks a lot like the signature Cascade Wreath, but the elves added red berries for an extra Christmas color. Enjoy the aroma of the alpine fresh Christmas wreath from the forests of the Pacific Northwest. Everyone who sees this wreath on your door will love the pastel blue juniper berries and pale yellow incense buds from the Oregon desert. It’s very special and oh-so-stunning!

Thanks to generous folks at Christmas Forest, one My Sweet Savings reader will have the opportunity to win an Alpine Christmas Wreath for themselves! To enter the giveaway, please follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter below. The first entry is mandatory while you may gain additional entries with the other options.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

Review of Younique Moodstruck Epic Mascara

I was provided with product to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. (Please see my disclosure policy)

Many of you will remember that I have posted about Younique products here on the blog before. I absolutely love Younique’s Moodstruck 3D+ Fiber Lashes, so I was excited to be given the opportunity to review the Moodstruck Epic Mascara. In addition, I have included the Younique Epic Mascara in my Holiday Gift Guide this year!

Moodstruck Epic Mascara is a multi-effect wonder, adding proven volume, length, and clump-free curl. The brush features intermingling high and low density bristles that grip lashes at their root, maximizing definition and volume, and the tapered tip allows for defining and thickening even your tiniest, hard-to-reach lashes with precision and control.  

I personally love that that Epic Mascara is an easily buildable formula that also acts as the perfect first step of the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ for the most extreme eyelashes ever. I took a photo of myself with one eye done of the Moodstruck Epic Mascara and one eye without. You can really see the difference! Can you say length and volume? I highly recommend this product if you are searching for a new mascara. At only $24 it really is a great value. Do you use Younique products? What are your thoughts on the Epic Mascara?

Younique is not only all about the lashes. They feature other amazing products like the Lip Stain that I am wearing in the picture above. The Moodstruck Minerals Stiff Upper Lip Lip Stain is amazing and lasts all day! I am wearing the Sleek shade. You can see this product HERE.

Review of Original PlasmaCar + Giveaway!

Disclosure: I was provided with product to faciliate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

My boys were so excited when they found out that the Original PlasmaCar was going to be featured in my Holiday Gift Guide this year. They have seen them before, and my son Brady, who is almost 6, was so excited when the PlasmaCar arrived in the mail. He could not wait for his daddy to assemble it so that he could get on and give it a spin!

The Original PlasmaCar is an innovative, ride-on toy that harnesses the natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force, friction, and kid power. No batteries, gears, or pedals. Patented safety seat design places rider in a safe, comfortable position and minimizes tipping. Supports up to 220 lbs. In addition, the PlasmaCar also comes in many different color options for everyone on your gift list! The PlasmaCar would make the best gift this holiday season!

As you can see from the pictures, Brady had a blast on the PlasmaCar! Once he got on, it did not take him long at all to get the hang of it and to maneuver it. He is quite the PlasmaCar pro now and wants to ride on it every time that he has the opportunity to do so. I love that the PlasmaCar gets the kids up and moving. This is definitely a great gift idea that any child is sure to love! The Original PlasmaCar supports up to 220lbs., so even the parents can join in on the fun!

Thanks to the Original PlasmaCar, one My Sweet Savings reader is going to win a PlasmaCar for themselves! Please follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter below. The first entry is mandatory while you may gain additional options with the other entries.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Finish®. The opinions and text are all mine.

The holidays are quickly approaching and you know what that means! It will be time for family gatherings and parties. If you are like me, and love to entertain, there will be many guests in our homes within the next couple of months. This means that my glasses and dishes need to look their best. I don’t know what it is about the holidays, but they also put me in cleaning mode! When it comes to the dishes, I always start with the drinking glasses, as they seem to be the most challenging item in the cabinet to clean. In fact, I noticed that my drinking glasses have a white film and spots all over them. While I do use my dishwasher on a daily basis, it seems that glasses are one of those items that need special attention several times a year. Thankfully, Finish has a product that offers a solution! Finish Jet-Dry Rinse Aid 16 oz. purchased at my local Target is a problem-solver! Finish Jet-Dry Rinse Aid speeds up drying, removes spots and residue, provides glass protection and delivers a brilliant shine. In addition, it has 5x power actions and a glass protection ingredient for drier and shinier dishes. It is also safe for septic tanks, so no worries there! 

While getting your dishes clean in preparation for the upcoming holiday season, you can also take advantage of a sweet deal when you purchase Finish products at your local Target.

HelloFresh Review: Fresh Healthy Meals Delivered Right to Your Door

Disclosure: I was provided with a Hello Fresh Family box in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

I recently had the opportunity to review HelloFresh. Out of all of the meal delivery services that I have tried, this has been a family favorite. We opted for the Family Plan which provides quick, healthy and easy meals that the entire family is sure to love! With the Family Plan, you can choose either 2 or 3 recipes to be delivered. I was sent the 3 recipe box which included crave-worthy cranberry pork with pecan couscous and zucchini, chicken sausage pizzas and balsamic meatloaf with sweet potato mash & green beans. All 3 of these dishes were winners with my family but we especially loved the chicken sausage pizzas!

Why Choose HelloFresh?

To begin with, everything is very fresh when it arrives. Even the herbs which are in their own little containers look like you just purchased them at the grocery store. Not only was I impressed with the freshness of the ingredients, but with the quality as well. Hello Fresh uses only the best! Every meal is prepped in its own brown paper bag that has all of the ingredients for your meals inside. In addition, each meal has its own meal prep card that includes step-by-step instructions for each meal.

You will first need to decide which HelloFresh meal plan is best for you and your family. Choose from Classic, Veggie or the Family plan.

The Classic Plan offers the widest variety of meat, fish, and seasonal produce. You can choose between 2 and 4 people and receive 3 meals. How many meals that you choose will determine the price of your plan. 

The Veggie Plan is a great option for vegetarians. This plan offers Vegetarian recipes with plant-based proteins, grains, and seasonal produce. Choose between 2-4 people and receive 3 meals. Once again, how many meals that you choose will determine the price of your plan. 

Lastly, the Family Plan, which I chose, provides quick and easy meals with all the YUM-worthy flavor the whole family loves. This plan serves 4 people and you can decide between 2-3 recipes. 

One of the things that I love most about Hello Fresh is the wide variety of menu options. Hello Fresh has a dedicated team of chefs who work alongside dietitians to create 15 new recipes each week. They select your meals based on your preferences but also give you the flexibility to select meals from your weekly menu. How awesome is that? I just love the flexibility that this service provides!

How would you like to try HelloFresh for yourself? GO HERE and use my code HEATHERB30 to save $30 off your first box! That is a huge discount! Please let me know what plan you try and how you like it. I honestly believe that you will love this option to get quick and healthy meals on the table as much as I do!

Stay tuned as HelloFresh will be featured in my 2017 Holiday Gift Guide!

ADVENTURE AWAITS!

From the beach to the mountains and everything in-between, the ICEMULE Cooler is going to be your new favorite cooler! It’s a cooler like no other, and it’s designed for anything life throws at you.
There’s an ICEMULE for any occasion, from tailgating and camping trips, to floating down the river or sitting on the beach. The ICEMULE is the world’s coldest hands-free cooler!

I was sent the large ICEMULE Classic in blue to review and I am so amazed at the quality and functionality that this cooler provides. The ICEMULE Classic is the cooler that started it all! Let the exploration begin, leaving your hands free to enjoy colder beverages than ever before. The ICEMULE keeps your drinks ice-cold for up to 24 hours. It is completely waterproof with welded seams and no zippers, which means it even floats. You can also roll it up for easy storage while you contemplate the next excursion. I love how this keeps your drinks colder for longer. So many traditional coolers have your drinks getting warm within hours. Now, we can travel for long periods of time and have cold drinks on the way!

In addition to the ICEMULE Classic, you can also find the ICEMULE Pro, the ICEMULE Boss, the ICEMULE Tote + Mini Classic and the ICEMULE Pro Classic. In addition to these awesome coolers, you can also find ICEMULE accessories so that you can represent ICEMULE wherever you go!

Want to purchase these awesome products for yourself? GO HERE to check out the entire product lineup that ICEMULE offers. Be sure to follow them on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for the latest product offerings and promotional opportunities!
