Beautiful Kalaty Rugs

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kalaty Rug Corp for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love rugs.

I love rugs, pillows, and lamps. I’m pretty sure I can over-do it on any of these when decorating. They add such warmth to a space. They make it feel cozy and lived in.

Rugs particularly can set the color, style and vibe for a room. They can make it feel classic or modern.

I personally like neutral rugs so I can change patterns and colors through the seasons, but a statement rug is also very fun to use space.

Get away from it all…at Gulf County, Florida.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gulf County, Florida for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s about this time of year that I want to disappear at times. I want to leave the hustle and bustle, the million 1/2 finished projects, the mired of activities, and just get away…..

Get away with just my family. Leave our cell phones behind, and hit the beach with bikes, campfire smores, and comfortable walking shoes.

I dream about ice cream cones, smiles, and times spent together making memories.

Gulf County Florida is one of those picturesque locations for the perfect family getaway.

Needing to Take Control of Your Finances?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kmart Share the Word for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hi everyone,

I haven’t done a non-DIY paid post in awhile, but I thought this was a worthwhile one. I am passionate about people feeling in control of their finances, and I think that learning how to simply budget is one of the best things a person can do. 

In celebration of Black History Month, Kmart has teamed up with Glinda Bridgforth, author of Girl, Get Your Money Straight!, to create a free downloadable finance e-guide. 

The guide includes family budget and saving advice, useful templates and helpful money saving tips. 

Kmart is promoting Share the Word, which is a program that helps people take control of their finance.

Love Asian Food? Try the New Pei Wei Diner!

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

It’s getting cold around here, and nothing sounds better than something warm to eat.

I love Asian food, but it takes quite a bit of time to cook it from scratch, that’s why I’m excited to try Pei Wei Asian Diner.

Pei Wei Asian Diner is owned and operated by P.F. Chang’s (which I love!)

So I’m excited to Explore the full Pei Wei Asian Diner menu.

Pei Wei Diner is a fast and casual dine-in experience. They also have speedy and convenient to-go service!

I LOVE the P.F. Chang’s lettuce wraps, so I’m excited to try Pei Wei’s latest item, the Sriracha Pineapple Pork Lettuce Wrap

The Gro Project…making gardening fun for all of us!

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

Do you love to garden, or is your green thumb….um, not so green?

I love a beautiful garden or yard at the end of the day, but getting myself out there to work on it is another story!

I’m an “inside beautifier”.  After I paint a wall….it stays painted! After I trim hedges, mow a yard and pull weeds, my work seems to be “undone” in 1-5 weeks!

That’s why I’m happy that Miracle-Gro is coming out with things like The Gro Project and fun garden projects. These are fun, “do-able” plant-based projects, and don’t take an entire day, but add some fun plant-life, to your life!

Aruba…a vacation destination!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Aruba Tourism Authority for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Where would your dream vacation destination be?

Are you a beach lounger, where white sandy beaches, sun and a good book would fill your day?  Or are you an adventurer, where scuba diving, hiking or a jeep safari would be how you would spend your time?

Either way, I think natural beauty and sunny weather are on everyone’s list of “vacation musts!”

Well today I’m writing a post for Social Spark on Aruba. Keep in mind, I’m in the middle of a move. There are boxes everywhere, cranky kids who are not even close to a normal sleeping schedule, and to just find swimming suits today took 30 minutes as I dug them out of packed boxes (never thought we would need swimsuits in May)!  All this to say Aruba travel sounds pretty darn incredible right now!

I watched this video about the Everly family and was ready to start planning my own Aruba trip! Yup!…sign me up!
