"Spray It Forward" with Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer

This sponsored post was written while participating in my partnership with Vaseline and One2One Network.

I have long suffered from dry skin...and really have done nothing about it.
But I am getting older and I must take action!.
It seems simple enough, right?
You have dry skin you use lotions.
No biggie, right?
Well, I am always in a hurry...always rushed...
due to my time management issues.
So when I saw the Vaseline Spray &Go Moisturizer commercial with the lady
who sprays her self down and gets dressed in like "2 seconds,"
I thought "Hey! This is made for me!"

Let's Make Some Pumpkin Soup!

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community. 
This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client.
I love pumpkin and I regularly shop at Save Mart Supermarket, so this is a perfect match!
I adore pumpkins.
I love their shape - all crazy and round and perfectly imperfect.
I love their color - shades of orange like a magnificent sunset.
I love their flavor, rich and hearty and so perfect for Fall.

I typically use pumpkin in sweeter items,
(cookies, cakes, bread, pancakes, souffles) 
but I was really wanting to try my hand at creating a savory pumpkin dish.

When I head to Save Mart Supermarket (which I do almost daily)
this time of the year, I just love it!
It feels like a field trip to a pumpkin patch.
They have pumpkins everywhere!
Big ones, little ones, and my favorite -  pie pumpkins (sometimes called sugar pumpkins)!


Be Yourself, Together: Unique Gift Giving from #TargetWedding

disclosure: Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target.
My husband and I are getting ready to celebrate a wedding anniversary.
I brought up the subject of our wedding gifts and
we started talking about the truly unique gifts we received.
Of course we were, and are thankful to have received
beautiful china and linens and crystal...
but there were a few friends who really hit the mark with
amazing, unique and unforgettable gifts.
Don't you want to be that wedding guest too?

Target Wedding Registry Ideas by 504 Main

For today's brides and grooms, the wedding celebration is all all about their uniqueness and their personal style, and that should not not be compromised when it comes to the wedding gifts and wedding registry. Meaningful gifts show understanding and appreciation of a couple's individuality, as well as their mutual interests!

That is where Target Wedding Registry comes is!
Not only can a couple select dinnerware and glassware,
but how about some home electronics, outdoor gear, luggage, or bicycles?
 Couples can create a wedding registry that reflects their interests as well as hones in our the necessities of creating a house and new life together.
Whatever your style, with Target you can "Be Yourself Together."

I headed to Target to do some shopping and exploring.
(Lucky me!)
There are so many options, so many ideas!

Now, let's talk about how to create a unique pairing
(or in this case ensemble) for that special couple.
Imagine she loves casually riding her bike around town -
waving "hello" to her friends,
hitting her favorite coffee spot,
and stopping to stock up at the Farmers market.

Now imagine him  - a foodie, an explorer, and adventurer. He is always in search of artisan creations, one-of-a-kind culinary discoveries, and the magic of a unique destination.
How do you marry these two diverse interests? 

Let's start with the Schwinn Legacy Cruiser...
with a pair of these beauties, they can cruise the town side by side,
and enjoy the great outdoors.

Now, create an "on the go gourmet picnic" gift set:
An embark cooler; picnicware, napkins, and glasses; a perfect picnic blanket; special edition travel magazines - packed with local weekend getaways and maps! 
With this handy, this couple is ready for weekend getaways near and far from home!

To finish off this very personal gift, get creative!
Mount a map of the area they live (or want to explore) on a corkboard!
Be sure to include some push pins so the couple can
mark the discoveries they make together!

A couple that receives a personal gift will know that you
truly understand the importance of them as individuals,
but that they are even "Better Together!"

 With a little thought and the amazing resources at Target,
a very cool, totally memorable gift comes together and celebrates how you can
"Be Yourself, Together."

Go on check out the Target Wedding Catalog and see how you would "Be Yourself, Together"

What was your favorite or most memorable wedding gift?

Create Something Beautiful with Scott's Miracle Gro

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I used to have a green thumb...and then it turned brown...and then I realized it was because when I first started gardening, I used the RIGHT products, like those from Miracle-Gro, to nurture and feed my plants. Well, now that I have kids who are interested in growing flowers and vegetables, I want to teach them how to do it right with the proper tools and products so they can enjoy gardening success, as well as be proud of what they create!

Of course being a clever mom, I am not only teaching my kids how to garden, but they are also helping me spruce up the house...because it is for sale...and everyone loves a pretty garden! Products like the Miracle grow LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit help us grow our garden by watering and feeding in one shot!
We have a water shortage in this area, so any product that can help retain moisture and feed my plants intrigues me! The Miracle Gro Moisture Control Products such as Shake’n Feed All Purpose Plant Food and Moisture Control Potting Mix have "patented technology formula enhances water efficiency and improves moisture in the soil, providing a better growing environment for your plants.  Helps save water by allowing moisture to penetrate the soil, reducing run-off." - Miracle Gro website
My kids are I are doing some container gardening to bring the front porch and back deck to life. Our first project is simple...very simple...we love using unusual containers for potting. For this project we used some old bakeware with drainage holes drilled in the bottom, plants, Miracle Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix and I could not resist trying  the Miracle Gro Water Soluble All Purpose Plant Food (my daughter is obsessed with watering cans- and this is perfect for that!)

To promote the love of growing and all things green, Miracle Gro has started The Gro Project. Be sure to visit The Gro Project for  some fun garden projects like a Toyrarium, a Ukulele Gardne or an Origami Garden to squash summer boredom for yourself or the kids! 

We should all create something beautiful everyday!
If you need inspiration on how to create some beauty and magic of your own,
Scott's Pinterest Board can offer you a wealth of inspiration and ideas.
And if you need expert advice and great tips for your indoor or outdoor garden, Miracle-Gro is the place to go!
Happy Planting!

  • Ruler – used for much more than measuring, it can evenly align and apply alphabet stickers when composing a title or message, or to keep handwritten inscriptions perfectly straight.
  • Scissors – essential for hand-cut shapes and get into tight corners
  • Bone Folder – a must-have for making cards and other crafts that call for a sharp crease. This product trims, embosses and pierces beautiful designs into your paper crafts 
  • Glue Stick – a great, all-purpose adhesive for card making, scrapbooking, and all kinds of paper crafting
