Enjoy Some Well-Deserved Relaxation! #SangriaSunday @yellowtail_usa #Ad

*This post was written by me on behalf of Yellow Tail USA. I received complimentary product samples to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% mine.   

    This past Thursday was the last day of school for New York City public school students.  As a middle school teacher, I can tell you that being an educator is a heck of a lot of work and, by the time the end of the year rolls around, most of us are in sore need of some rest and relaxation.

    Being from Europe, I have always enjoyed a delicious glass of Sangria during those times when I am looking to enjoy some down time.  In Spain and Portugal, it is typically served during the summer and is a popular drink among tourists and locals alike.  There is just something about having the wind blowing through your hair and enjoying some fresh air outdoors while you sip on some delicious wine.

    I’m looking forward to enjoying having the summer off and to relaxing a little too.  Here are some of the ways that you too can relax and enjoy some pampering as well:

  • Enjoy some fun along with your favorite beverage by the pool.  This is a great way to relax and to enjoy some water fun which is the highlight of the summer.
  • Put a hammock up in your backyard under a shady tree and curl up reading your favorite book.
  • Invite some friends over for an intimate gathering where you give each other manicures and pedicures.
  • Create a soothing ambiance in your bathroom with some candles and aromatherapy and enjoy a bubble bath with a glass of Yellow Tail Sangria.
  • Sit out on your patio with a pitcher of Yellow Tail Sangria and listen to some of your favorite tunes on your playlist while you enjoy the warm weather.
  • Spend some romantic time with your sweetheart enjoying some candlelight and some Yellow Tail Sangria.

    There are many ways that you can steal a few moments and have some time to relax.  Make sure you add some Yellow Tail Sangria to these relaxing moments because its delicious mix of citrus and red wine will splash your palate and soothe your soul!

Let’s Discuss:  What are some of your favorite ways to relax after a long week?

  1. I’m so excited that school is finally out! I have most of my summer off and w my girls home… after a long day… not week… I have been popping open my favorite adult beverage! Much needed. I think I have this brand of drink in my cabinet.. May need to dig it out now.

  2. Great ideas for relaxing! I love having a little more time in the summer to sit back and enjoy the moment. Sangria is a summer favorite!

  3. I got to try a sample of this Sangria, and it is really good! I think I am going to have some today as well.

  4. I’ve just recently discovered Sangria and can see why it is a summer favorite. I try to spend quality time with family and friends offline on the weekends.

    Looks like a great Sangria, though I’m not much of a drinker.

  6. Amber Nelson says

    I will take some of this. Yes, please!

  7. We love Yellow Tail. Their Sangria is amazing. We just had a bottle last Sunday and enjoyed it.

  8. Now that sounds like a nice Sangria – wonder if my parents would like one for a present. x

  9. I’ve tried Yellow Tail but not their sangria. I must address that.

  10. I would love to try sangria. I like only sweet wine.

  11. Yellowtail is one of my favorites! It’s a good price for the taste. Sangria is also kind of my favorite so I will be giving this one a try!

  12. After a long week, I usually just like to take a few hours to nap. It really helps me recharge and get ready for the week to come.

  13. I’ve never had Sangria, but on the weekends I’m usually on the back 40 or poolside with a cold one!!!

    It’s good to take some time to relax. Adding wine just makes it better. It’s been a while since I had friends over to enjoy a moment like this. Need to plan something soon.

  15. mail4rosey says

    My husband likes to try new ones. I remember seeing this bottle in his collection, so I’m certain he’s had it before!

  16. Anne Newsome says

    We love eating out as a family but it really cuts into the budget! I also love having some time to read or soak in a bath.

  17. Tracy Iglesias says

    Good Wine or prosecco and a very long bath (already have a wireless speaker set up in the bathroom!) is my favorite way to un-wind after a very long week! (Thanks for the reminder I need to post about this also! LOL) 🙂
