Relaxing Inspiration

After Turkey Day, I'm ready to relax....not shop! and i know i'm not the only one! This past weekend, I took a mini to Florida and although it was a rather quick trip {driving 20 hours straight down from NY and back a couple days later}, I enjoyed every moment and would do a traveling job if I could. i'm usually really hard on myself and i had to keep saying this because life is sooooo worth seeing. most people only exist, to live is the difficult part-doesn't have to be if you just let it glide. enjoy every moment and sink in the ocean. when my baby sis and i sat down on the edge to gaze at this view in Clearwater, FL.....we were sitting there but only a few moments when we thought we saw a huge gator at our feet hanging in the water. she rushed up but i [ being the adventurous one ] sat there [ pulled my legs into an indian style ] and wanted to capture the creature. i took so many photos and then realized it was a manatee playing peek a boo. i guess when they sl

Thanksgiving Dinner Ideas

Hello Bloggers! My little family is spending Thanksgiving in PA with the girls grandparents. Tomorrow, Nana and Uncle J are coming in and it's going to be a rather small, relaxing dinner this year! Oh, we have 3 dogs here keeping us company too! The above pic is a featured dinner from Blair Blogs . She breaks her dinner for 2 right down to the T! Check it out . I'm a traditionalist when it comes to basic cooking. Turkey, cranberry, stuffing, potatoes and gravy, corn, buns and pumpkin pie for me, please!! And I think most everyone craves left-overs, so that's important. But this year, My Teen Daughter is Cooking it up with Her Gram! Apple Pie is one of my faves too! Prepping for Thanksgiving is one of the most relaxing, stress free things in the world. If you're anxious about making everything perfect, especially if you're cooking; relax, take it easy, not supposed to be tense! Take your time. Be prepared. And enjoy. Most importantly, take the time to embra

How to Get Sponsors on Your Blog

Earlier this week we shared a feature post about how to make money on your blogs, today we're sharing how to get sponsors. First things first, clean your blog. If you don't have a clean layout, get one. No clutter, not a lot of commotion. Figure out where you want them to be. Sponsors come in all different sizes, shapes and forms. Typically, have a variety of options that suit your blog needs; such as: Small, Medium, Large Ads, Sponsored Blog Posts, Sidebar Ads, Below the Blog Post Ads and Above the Header Ads. If you don't have any current sponsors, grab some for examples. Brands looking to sponsor your blog want to see what an ad will look like on your site, so create some to give them an idea. Ideally give them the best, the most exposure placing them where they will be seen first as soon as someone clicks on your blog. Sponsors deserve the recognition, after all; they are paying for exposure. Advertise your package deals on Twitter | Facebook | Instagram an

Vanilla Caramel Tea

i specifically love tea this time of year, so i had to run out and stock up on a variety! having tried a few different flavors already, the vanilla caramel is my fave thus far. i'm usually a picky drinker and yes, tea is only good if you have a craving for it! i enjoy lemon in my ice water but i do not care for the black lemon tea. it's too much perhaps and not good hot! and i totally thought that i would like the vanilla chai tea bags but they don't compare to DD. and so, i really love vanilla and caramel flavors thinking this would be alright and sure enough it was!!! something different anyways! what is your favorite tea flavor if you enjoy a hot cup on a cold day!? check out these tea posts today: afternoon tea banana nut bread tea sandwiches pink bliss sunday tea

Christmas Cactus | How to Rescue Your Plants

I've become very interested this past year in taking care of plants and to be honest, I have rescued a ton with little to no experience. It's really simple and not to be thought of too deeply. My daughters great grandmother gave me two of her dried out Christmas Cactus'. I had never heard of them before nor knew anything about them. They looked neat without the buds and flowers, so I carefully took them out of the small pots they were in and you could tell they hadn't been watered in a very long time. Now that doesn't mean you cannot bring them back to life, so NEVER throw a plant away thinking it's dead. Save that beauty!!! 1.) The first thing you want to do is give it a new home, A simple transfer of pots will make the plant feel lively already! The proper size for growth is important, so pick a pot that isn't too small or too big. 2.) Feel the roots. If it's dry, water time. Plants don't need a ton of water. Just a little moisture and by li

Going Back in Time | And a Little Blog Encouragement

Once again we wanted to wish you all a warm welcome back to for the love of blogs. It's been a wonderful experience meeting so many bloggers from all over the place and from all different aspects.  Today, since it's the start of a long weekend, we wanted to bring you back to some posts from back in the day. It's fun to look back on where someone started as a blogger and to see how much they've grown over time. Many are taking breaks from blogging but I have a little trick up my sleeve to get them back: -Comment on their most recent post and invite them back to do new, fresh posts! Sometimes all a blogger needs is support and encouragement to get motivated to post again and when you leave a new comment on their post it most likely goes to their email, so they will possibly see, read and be inspired once again. Check Out This Featured Blog  and Take a Look at Where she is today! Invite her back since it's been a few months since we last saw a post! This
