Etsy Treasury: Margarita Day (Every Day is a Holiday)

(I promise, no Jimmy Buffett tunes.)

Today is Margarita Day! And good thing it’s the weekend, so you can celebrate properly by tossing back a few of these classic Mexican cocktails. Margaritas are the most popular beverage made with tequila. It also has triple sec (an orange liqueur) and lime juice, and often has salt around the rim. It’s a tangy sour drink, and they can go down easily. I guarantee most of you reading this have had at least one (or two or three) of those nights where margaritas were responsible for that hangover you’ll never forget.

This treasury celebrates the Margarita, along with it’s two most famous ingredients. It certainly creates quite the striking color palette too, with all that lime! So take a look at the treasury, share the love, and go out tonight for a few margaritas! (But drink responsibly and have a designated driver!)

Etsy Treasury: Almond Day (Every Day is a Holiday)

There’s something so alluring about the scent of almonds. Sweet but warm, soothing but uplifting. Their aroma and taste blend very well with many other food elements like honey, chocolate, and cherries. This makes the almond quite the beloved nut, and hence why we celebrate it on Almond Day.

Given the world-wide popularity of the almond, it’s no surprise how many almond-centric items are to be found on Etsy. There are edible treats, scented soaps and lip balms, gluten free cookie options, and even some gorgeous pieces carved from the unique wood of the almond tree. Please browse through the collection, and treat yourself today to something made from almonds! Remember to take a look through some of my other Every Day is a Holiday treasuries here!

Etsy Treasury: Madly In Love With Me Day (Every Day is a Holiday)

The days leading up to Valentine’s Day can be stressful for some people. Perhaps their significant other has high expectations for the holiday that must be met in order to avoid sleeping on the couch. Maybe they’re single, and having hearts and lovey-dovey imagery plastered everywhere only reminds them of their own loneliness. Or the scenario is more of a deep desire to show someone how much they really care, but finding that absolutely perfect, beyond-anything-ever-dreamed-of gift is proving difficult. But put all that aside on the day before Valentine’s Day, and turn that focus on you! Today is Madly In Love with Me Day, where we’re reminded of the importance of loving ourselves. After all, you can’t truly love others unless you love yourself, too.

This treasury is dedicated to… well, me! Within it are clues as to a few of the things I’m most passionate about in my life: paisleys, sushi, music, natural sciences (particularly astronomy), and of course, the color purple. So take a look at the collection, and perhaps you’ll learn a little bit about me. Remember to show the shops some V-Day love, and visit my other Every Day is a Holiday Treasuries here!
