GA-DE Fall 2016 Collection Swatches & Coupon

I received this product as part of a sampling program with Sway Group. All opinions are my own.

Today I have a very exciting collection to share with you guys, I really should've shared this a few weeks ago but we've had an illness that keeps going round and round and I keep getting it so I have fallen behind with everything, unfortunately. Still, this collection is so stunning that it it is definitely better late than never. 

Celebrate the Holidays w/ Pozole Rojo

This post sponsored by Mirum shopper, all opinions are my own.

There's really nothing quite like sitting down to enjoy a homemade meal with those you love around you. The holiday break really allows all of us to catch up and relax after that really hectic fall and back-to-school season. We started the holiday break by taking a week off to visit Las Vegas and now we are home for the next two weeks just relaxing and enjoying this time together. Though Christmas has now passed we are still celebrating the holidays. We celebrate until January 6th, El Dia De Los Reyes, which still gives us plenty of time to enjoy together.

When I look at my life now I am incredibly thankful for everything that I have and for how easy it is compared to when my mom was my age. At the age of 43 my mom came to the United States to work hard and bring my youngest sister for an operation she desperately needed. My youngest sister was born with a cleft palate and already had a hard life at only two years of age. My mom knew that the US was her only chance, and that is why my family is here today. The US, being the land of opportunity, helped my sister. Within a few years she had a new palate and would finally have a better quality of life, something not possible if we'd stayed in Mexico. 

We were pretty young when we came here and watched my mom work so hard for all of those years that we were growing up. My mom was a housekeeper, she was a nanny, at one time she even worked in the fields. My mom taught us that in life you have to work very hard and that even if you are a single woman with 4 kids, you can and will make it.

New Year's Eve is only two weeks away and just like everybody else I am already looking forward to celebrating the night with family and loved ones. New Year's Eve is a night that we all get together to commemorate the passing year and to welcome the new one with all of our loves ones around us. Of course, one of the best ways that we celebrate as a Mexican family is with plenty of food. As with most Mexican families, most of the dishes that we will enjoy on New Year's Eve are our tried and true traditional ones: tamales, champurrado, buñuelos, posole, etc. We will also be having a few new dishes that are in the process of being "tested out" to see if the family likes them so they can become part of our menu in the future. One of those new recipes is the one I will be sharing with you today, a recipe that involves the grape, which is a very popular food to eat on New Year's Eve.
