boost your wellness with Nature Made + a giveaway

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as a part of a Blog Blast for Influence Central


We’re halfway through February (already?!), so that means that for most of us, our New Year’s resolutions are (hopefully) in full swing. For me, I wanted to make simple changes to eat better, create something everyday and spend time outdoors each day, as well. For me, big, sweeping changes aren’t realistic; I’m more apt to lean towards small changes that will, over time, make a big impact.

Nature Made gets this, and has created a site called Daily Boost, whose goal is to inspire us all to do right by our bodies through small, simple steps that don’t take up a lot of time. Nature Made, as you may be aware, is the nation’s #1 best-selling brand for quality vitamins and supplementsm* to help support nutritional gaps*, and is also the #1 recommended supplement brand in 9 categories.**

Always on the lookout for easy ways to inspire my own health and wellness, I signed up for Daily Boost, and encourage you to give it a try, too!

You can purchase your Nature Made vitamins and supplements at Walmart, and, as an incentive, you can enter here through February 25th to win one of 20 $50 Walmart gift cards!

scalloped mirrors {on-trend}


Let’s talk mirrors! Like any good home decor blogger, I love a stylish mirror. Mirrors are great for adding interest, making a space look larger, and opening up a room. They make a great focal point, and are the perfect addition to a gallery wall, mantle, or anywhere you’d like to add a bit of style. More specifically, though, I am currently crushing on scalloped mirrors…the fun scalloped frames are chic, feminine, and very definitely on-trend! Here are my favorite scalloped mirror finds…

easy valentine’s day snack mix {a recipe}

valentines snack mix

One simple, creative way that I use to celebrate different holiday with my kids is to create easy, themed snack mixes. My kids LOVE them, they take almost no time to put together, and they’re a fun way to mark holidays and special occasions. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I wanted to create a themed snack mix that my kids would enjoy over the next week or so as we celebrate the day of love!

First, I wanted to create covered pretzels to add to the mix. I melted a handful of white melting wafers, added a couple of drops of food coloring, dipped my pretzels, and covered them with sprinkles.


Place on a sheet of parchment paper, put in the refrigerator to quicken hardening process, and that’s it!

Add to the rest of your ingredients. I used rice cereal, oyster crackers, mini marshmallows, yogurt raisins, and a few conversation hearts to create my snack mix. Toss together.
