Happy Friday, my friends! This has been a WEEK. Super buys, full of running around, and crammed to the brim with work. I am so fortunate that I love what I do, and it often doesn’t feel like work, but I for sure am in need of a weekend and a break. Tell me what you are doing this weekend to relax. Especially if you have kids. Tell me what you do to take care of yourself and squeeze in some relaxation so you don’t burn out. It’s okay if that includes one of these Baileys Chocolate Martinis.

The popular Irish cream can add such a rich and creamy texture to even your most boring cup of coffee. Who doesn’t love a little Irish Whiskey in their coffee? Try this Salted Caramel Irish Coffee and you’ll totally see what I mean.
I never met an Baileys recipe I didn’t love, but one of my very favorite Baileys combinations is with chocolate. Serve up a slice of this Baileys Poke Cake at your ladies night. Can’t get enough?
