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:
