CELEBRATING MOMENTS WITH Häagen-Dazs® Ice Cream

CELEBRATING MOMENTS WITH Häagen-Dazs® Ice Cream

*Disclaimer: This post is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Häagen-Dazs® Ice Cream and Walgreens. All opinions and stories are mine alone. Thank you for supporting sponsored opportunities on WOS.

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope you all had an amazing week and are enjoying Summer! I’m getting ready to leave to Europe tonight! YAY! I need a vacation! I’m so excited to team up with what is one of my favorite ice cream brands, aka Häagen-Dazs®, to share with you how I celebrate LIFE and embrace the things that come my way.

Häagen-Dazs’ journey to extraordinary began when they decided to pursue their passion, crafting the world’s best ice cream, which has kept them going for 56 years as they stay true to who they are and their core beliefs. I totally relate to these values and I’m really grateful for that.

Being grateful is something we should practice every single day. Multiple times if you ask me. You are alive and reading this post, so that’s already something you should be thankful for. Do you know what that means? You are breathing, you are healthy, you can see, you had an education because you are able to read and understand these words, you have access to the internet and to a computer (or phone), and in a few minutes you’ll be ready to go to Walgreens or Duane Reade and buy some ice cream and create you very own #HDMoment because they are on SALE!

Thank me later for that!

No, but seriously. You are lucky and so am I. If you’d like to dig deeper on this subject make sure to read this post I wrote over a year ago: 30 days of gratitude. But for now, and for today I want to share with you the things that make me happy and the moments I celebrate with Häagen-Dazs:

  • Getting a new gig for the blog! As bloggers we struggle. We get so many no’s that it’s insane, seriously. To be in this business you have to be tough and learn how not to take things personal, which in particular is really hard because when a brand says no to your brand, they are kind of saying no to you as well hahaha. However, most times when someone says; “yes, we want to work with you and pay you what your work is worth”, it somehow erases all those nasty no’s. Ironically enough, I celebrated this collaboration with Häagen-Dazs, eating a Häagen-Dazs. Every campaign brings me closer to my goals, so I am very grateful for each and every one of them.

 

  • I celebrated my dad for Father’s Day. Actually, I celebrate this guy every single day (and my mama too!) but on special occasions I make sure they feel and know how important it is to me to have them in my life. I’m a very lucky girl because I have a beautiful family that loves me and supports me no matter what. They always have my back and viceversa, and I do not take any of that for granted.
  • I celebrate Sundays! Yes, this is my favorite day of the week because I sleep in, I go to Church, I have brunch, I listen to Sunday Morning by Maroon 5 (every Sunday morning, yes!), and I just relax. I always indulge myself by the end of the day. I like to read a book or a magazine in bed while eating ice cream and plan out what the following week is going to look like.

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did. Not only the writing part, but you know, someone had to eat all that ice cream! Share with me in the comments below; what is your Häagen-Dazs moment? Remember to share it on Instagram as well by using #HDMoment and enter their sweepstakes here:

    Ooooo I love Haagen Daaz ice creams! They were my go to when I went through sad times and just wanted to do nothing but binge watch drama serials and eat the ice cream from the tub. It is so true that we have to be grateful for everything we have in our lifes and the people in it too.
    I love the decor in your bedroom which looks so inspiring and filled with positivity!

    Haagen Dazs definitely brings back memories of sitting outdoors sharing ice cream with the people I care about the most. I really like your message about being thankful for what you have because some people take their family for granted or don’t share enough good memories with them. Thank you for sharing! Xo, Jessica

    Well you don’t have to sell it to me anymore than just mentioning the name Haagen Dazs lol. During this pregnancy, ice cream is like my diet, pretty much. I’ve been stacking up on mint chocolate, because I love the sweet chocolate and vanilla and the refreshing mint. I love how you celebrated with your dad, it is so sweet, and Sundays too. Love Maroon 5 “Sunday morning”. You remind me there are so many moments worth celebrating, and celebrating with ice cream!

    So, I’m a little jealous because I LOVE Haagen Dazs! Literally, after my morning coffee, I am going to go up to Walgreens and buy some. Best ice cream, hands down! I love your positive vibes! We should be grateful everyday. As bloggers, we are rejected, a lot! But the ones who do appreciate our value, make it all worth it. Thanks for sharing and have fun in Europe! XO

    I cannot agree more, we have to be thankful for every single moment in our life and enjoy it as much as possible. That’s so nice to hear that you decided to collaborate with Haagen-Dazs, I love their vegan ice-cream and share their philosophy!
    And wow, you both look so happy together with your father. These are the moments we need to cherish. Love the photos! <3

    My goodness! I haven’t had Häagen-Dazs in forever but you surly have me wanting to head to Walgreens to pick some up ASAP! How yummy does that coffee one taste! I love that you really put things into perspective here! It’s so so easy to get consumed with everyday minor struggles that we forget how incredibly blessed we are! I so love reading your blog post because you are so grounded and real! Anyways, I love that song and so excited over this collaboration for you because sometimes the blogging struggle can be all too real! Have fun on vacation beautiful!

    I love that you are so positive and are thankful for everything we have, is a good reminder for all of us. Sometimes being in the blogging business is very hard and it gets discouraging to continue what we love doing but than like you said you get to work with a great company and you get pumped up again. Häagen-Dazs’ ice cream is my fiancees favourite ice cream since they have gluten free option and he is celiac. I am so jealous that you are going to Europe, have a great time !

    Yes I agree so much with you that being thankful / grateful is something we should practice every single day. In fact I’ve written a blog post about the 10 reasons to practice gratitude earlier. And I’m a fan of HÄAGEN-DAZS too! I would be extra grateful if somebody treats me to HÄAGEN-DAZS nowadays LOL!

    Would you believe I’ve never had Häagen-Dazs’ ice cream or their products before? After seeing these pics, you’ve made me want to take a trip to my local Walgreens asap to see if it tastes just as amazing as it looks…omg! So glad you got to spend time with your father for the holiday. If him and your mom support you, they both must be amazing!
