Cinco de Mayo, Margaritas, and Sauza® Tequila Oh My

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Sauza® Tequila thank you for allowing me to share my favorite brands with you. Entertaining and celebrating are two of my favorite things to do. I was so excited to be able to combine them by celebrating the fact that I successfully defended my Ph.D. Dissertation (finally) and thanks to Sauza® Tequila, pull together a “fiesta-worthy” celebration complete with luxury Mexican-inspired serving pieces, Tacos, Nachos, and of course, some smooth tasting tequila! When I entertain, I go all out because for me it’s all about making memories that you can look…
