VALENTINE’S DAY WITH JANE.COM

Last Friday I had the chance to be a part of a Facebook Live event put on by Jane.com and it was so much fun! The event was themed ‘DIY Valentine’s Day’ and I got to show their followers how to make their own Valentine’s Day candy kabobs! I’m not one that loves to be in front of the camera so I wasn’t sure what to expect but it ended up being super fun and their social media coordinator was so cute and easy to talk to. It was also fun to meet two other bloggers that were part of the event – Ashley’s Fresh Fix and Sugar Coated Housewife. Check them out! You can watch the full video below and also head over to the Jane.com blog to read more here! Hope you all have a super sweet Valentine’s Day full of lots of candy and chocolate! xoxo

CANDY COCKTAILS

This week I created the perfect summer treat… Candy cocktails! I didn’t even use alcohol… You can really use whatever drink is your favorite (lemonade, fruit juices, soda, etc). Who wouldn’t love a drink adorned with candy? These are the perfect addition to a summer party and look as good as they taste!

First, I snagged some cocktail glasses from the dollar tree and first dipped them in colored sugar. Then, I added gummy raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries to drink skewers, mini fruit slices on the sides of the glass and gummy twin cherries in the bottom of the drink itself. Let’s talk about these candies for a minute… Why are mini fruit slices so much cuter and taste even better than the normal size?! Also, the gummy strawberries are probably one of my new favorite candies and I’ve always been a fan of gummy raspberries, blackberries and twin cherries! YUM. Finally, for a fun touch I used different colored straws to complete the drink! I found all of my candy for candy cocktails online at Oh! Nuts. They have the biggest variety of just about any candy you could want!

Candy cocktails are so simple to make and make any part that much sweeter! Try making them yourself and let me know how it goes!
