Surprise and Delight with a Gift Basket from Sprouts #PassTheJoy #Giveaway

#PasstheJoy with Sprouts Farmers Market

Sprouts Farmers Market helps you #PassTheJoy to surprise and delight your loved ones!

(Disclosure: I have been compensated for this post by Sprouts, but all opinions and selections are my own.)

I was so happy when Sprouts opened closer to my home. My sister has bragged about her Sprouts store for years and I was always jealous. I wanted to buy fresh, beautiful produce, products and goodies at a good price, too. Right now, for example, they have 14 varieties of apples…14! Any one you want is less than $1/pound. And I don’t know if you’re a fan of Honeycomb Candy, but I am, and that stuff is hard to find. But there it is at Sprouts, waiting for me every time I visit.

I am very happy to be an Ambassador for Sprouts Farmers Market and I was given a wonderful opportunity to really dive into the store and see what it has to offer. I’m going to create some gift baskets to surprise and delight three very special people in my life using Sprouts great variety of quality products.


The College Student Basket

The first basket I’m creating will be for Olivia. She is the typical “starving college student” and is always looking for healthy ways to snack and cook for herself. She also likes good cup of tea and loves amazing nail color! Sprouts has so many things from which to select, I had some trouble choosing what to include.

#PassTheJoy with Sprouts Farmers Market

Surprise and delight a college student with a gift basket created at Sprouts Farmers Market. #PassTheJoy

I picked out a bunch of treats for her to have by her side while studying for finals and working on her thesis. Olivia likes gummy bears (no artificial colors here!) and enjoys things like sunbutter with crackers, and oatmeal any time of day. I also tossed in a few goodies that will help her stay healthy during the semester, like vitamins and hand soap. Finally, a little pampering for a job well done with a pretty candle and some cool blue shades of nail polish.  Oh, and tea. There has to be tea!

Sprouts Surprise and Delight Gift Basket - College Student

 


The Dog Lover Basket

The next gift basket is for Bill, the Dog Lover. This is the friend who’s dog is his child, right? It was so easy to pull together this basket of treats because you just can’t go wrong with the products carried by Sprouts Farmers Market. Everything there is good for your dog (or cat!) and all-natural.

#PassTheJoy with Sprouts Farmers Market

It’s easy to surprise and delight a pet owner with products from Sprouts. #PassTheJoy

I was able to grab some fun things for this one. A nice bag and a few cans of good quality food, some vitamins, rawhide of course, and a couple of different treats that would sound good to me if I were a dog!

A nice strong basket that he can use for dog toys later, some burlap and ribbon helped pull this one together, along with a little recycled basket filler!

#PassTheJoy with Sprouts Farmers Market

 


The Pamper-A-Teacher Basket

Finally, my friend Katie is a teacher. She’s one of the most selfless people I know and spends every extra penny on her students. She could use a little special pampering and pretty things for herself.

#PassTheJoy with Sprouts Farmers Market

Everyone knows a teacher who needs some TLC! A quick run by Sprouts Farmers Market and you’re all set to surprise and delight! #PassTheJoy

It all starts with a bath. I found a nice variety of scented bath salts, but you could even purchase the ingredients at Sprouts to make your own soothing bath salts. (Check out the instructions to make bath salts here – it’s really easy!) I found a candle that smelled amazing, some pretty soaps and a yoga magazine to relax with. I picked out some great treats to top it off – tea, chocolates, nuts and cookies. I also included a delicious bottle of Prosecco and some apricot nectar to add to it – a fabulous drink I learned from Sprouts!

#PassTheJoy with Sprouts Farmer's Market

Time to create a spa day for your kids’ favorite teacher at Sprouts.


My shopping trip to Sprouts Farmers Market was one of the easiest ways to shop for gifts I’ve ever tried and one of the most fun, too. The employees at my local store are pretty remarkable. They were very familiar with their products and had some super fun ideas for my baskets! One bit of advice was to try to use a color scheme, so I went with orange on my teacher basket.

Another shared a neat tip for helping the items stand up in your basket using skewers like this:

Gift Basket Tip #PassTheJoy

Use skewers taped to the back of small gift basket items to help them stand up and keep them from getting lost among the other things.

Finally, here’s how this basket and the others came together.

#PassThe Joy with Sprouts Farmers Market

It’s easy to create your own gift baskets. Remember to fill the bottom of deeper containers with tissue paper or even crumpled newspaper to raise the gifts up where they’ll be clearly displayed. I used a few layers of bubble wrap in this one! #PassTheyJoy

Win The Pioneer Woman Cookbook Autographed by Ree Drummond

I can’t tell you how many times my husband has talked about how much he likes the food Ree makes. The Pioneer Woman has a knack for sharing delicious favorites that are made from regular ingredients that folks like you and me can find at our local grocery stores. They’re simple, yet special. They’re recipes for the way we all cook. We just need one more great idea for tonight’s dinner…one more side dish that will go with last night’s leftovers…one more quick dessert to eat while doing homework after dinner. And, did I mention that she’s a fan of breakfast for dinner?

The latest cookbook offering from Ree Drummond is called “Dinnertime“. It’s a colorful and well-organized collection of perfectly thoughtful recipes for everyone’s dinnertime.

Ree Drummond - Dinnertime Cookbook

Know what else is fabulous about “Dinnertime”? The photographs!  Not only are the steps to each recipe accompanied by amazing pictures, but Ree also shares bunches of gorgeous pics of her family, her pets, the horses, the ranch, the cows…and plenty of Pioneer Woman commentary along the way.

As many of you know, I was able to meet The Pioneer Woman at the Country Living Fair a couple of weeks ago and Ree very kindly signed one of her “Dinnertime” cookbooks for a lucky Nest Full of New reader.

Country Living Fair - Tracy and Ree Drummond

Now, it’s finally time to give one of you this amazing cookbook.  Yes, this one! The one right there in the picture! So cool!

(ENDED) Verilux HappyLight Energy Lamp – #Giveaway

VT20_Aspire_standard

I’ve recently injured my Achilles heel.  You know what they say…it’s all fun and games until someone winds up in a walking cast.  After six weeks of that mess, I had to move into the super fun physical therapy phase. Yikes. I was surprised at how weak my ankle had become in such a short time and my stamina had decreased after not being able to walk as much as I had been.  Angie and Colleen, my physical therapists, worked with me and showed me how to strengthen and tighten everything back up.They were amazing (hey y’all!) but it was exhausting. As I continue to do the therapy at home, I’m also increasing my walking again. Between that and working in an office, sitting at a desk all day, I’m found that was so tired and didn’t have the same energy I used to.

Hold up!  I don’t have time for this right now and really need to focus on stamina.  I have a big trip coming up in May (more on that soon!) and need to be ready.  Verilux was kind enough to send me this energy lamp to try out (opinions expressed are my own) and they want to give you one, too!

 

The Verilux HappyLight Liberty 10,000 LUX Natural Spectrum Energy Lamp provides up to 10,000 LUX of full spectrum light (scotopic light measured at 10 inches), the highest recommended output for addressing seasonal change, the “Winter Blues” (a subclinical form of Seasonal Affective Disorder [SAD]) or the effects of shift work, jet lag, malaise or fatigue. Balanced Natural Spectrum Daylight taps the potency of light to gently cue your body to recalibrate and stabilize, naturally reducing fatigue and lethargy while improving focus. No two people view and react to light in the same way, so this energy lamp provides the flexibility to customize the light to meet your needs. High-Low intensity controls, interchangeable lenses and a tilt feature give you the maximum flexibility to design the program that works best for you. A broad field of up to 10,000 LUX* of light provides a more flexible program, allowing you to be farther from the lamp and to move around more freely during use.

Improve Your Mood and Energy. . .Naturally
  • Beat the winter blues and the effects of seasonal change
  • Fight fatigue and increase alertness
  • Regain focus and concentration
Why it Works
The broader-spectrum light from Verilux energy lamps stimulates all of the eye’s photoreceptors. One photoreceptor, melanopsin, helps set the body’s daily cycles and is triggered by a specific narrow spectrum of natural light. Most artificial light sources do not provide light in the range to most efficiently stimulate melanopsin. Verilux energy lamps emulate key spectrums of natural light to effectively set the body’s internal clock to improve mood, energy, and well-being.

Key Features

  • 10,000 LUX* at 10″
  • Optiflex light customization: Interchangeable high-energy comfort Optix glare-control lenses
  • High-Low intensity control
  • Natural spectrum light
  • Tilts to direct light where it’s needed
  • Wall-mountable
  • Discreet, compact design – 13.5”(H) x 6.25”(W) x 2.12”(D)

The Results

I started using this for a few minutes a day at my desk at the office.  (My co-workers were pretty intrigued!) After I got used to it, I started using it at home while continuing my exercises from physical therapy and during some bits of yoga and “walking away the pounds.”  I could really tell a difference in the amount of energy I had – even after just a few days. I had no idea that this kind of light had that much effect on my mood, my sleep…everything. I typically shun going out in the sun – I’m a melanoma survivor – but I feel perfectly safe with this light source and will definitely be incorporating it into my indoor activities and exercising.

Want to win one of your own?

I appreciate Verilux sharing one of these lamps with a lucky Nest Full of New reader!  (If you want additional information about this lamp, this is their webpage.)  Head to the entry form below and get entered today!  A winner will be selected on May 4!

Breville Bread Maker #Giveaway

Breadmaker Giveaway

I love bread and I don’t mind admitting that. Who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked bread?  It’s one of the best smells (and tastes) in the whole world! My daughter made a loaf of homemade bread on her last visit and I think we ate the whole thing in about 10 minutes.  I’d truly rather have bread than sweets most of the time.  Wave a warm bagel and a chocolate chip cookie in front of me and I’ll pick the bagel every single time…no question.  I might need an intervention.

If you’re a bread lover, too, or just a family trying to stay away from preservatives and chemicals, a bread machine is an essential kitchen tool. Makes it so simple to have fresh baked bread, rolls, pizza crust, and yes, even bagels every single day.

Do you “knead” a bread maker?

This incredible bread maker lets you program your own recipes and adds ingredients for you. It features an automatic Fruit & Nut Dispenser, collapsible kneading paddle and progress indicator so the user can see what is happening at each stage. It can even make gluten-free breads.

Top View - Bread Maker

A very clever interface computes temperature and baking time when you make a selection, while a super easy Turn and Confirm dial gets you started on any recipe in seconds. It even lets you select what time you want the bread to be ready, adds fruits and nuts at the appropriate time, and lets you create your own recipes. It’s the greatest thing since, well you know.”

One lucky person will win a KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer, valued at $350! You pick your favorite color, too!

With the holidays rapidly approaching, I get excited when I think about all the baking that will happen in my kitchen! I also think about how I’d never survive without my good old KitchenAid mixer that my sweet daughter gave me several years ago. I’ve started making big batches of these amazing sugar cookies that then get decorated with royal icing. I would be very surprised if those ever got made without a stand mixer. Both the dough and the icing are a breeze – and the dough is pretty heavy duty. Not a grumble from my KitchenAid…which is more than I can say for my hubby if I asked him to mix the dough for me!

Want to win one for yourself?  Follow the instructions on the entry form below, then start gathering your cookie recipes!

(ENDED) NeoCell Joint Health Trio #Giveaway

NeoCell Joint Health

 

(NeoCell provided the products for review and the opinions here are my own. As with any dietary supplement, I recommend consulting your doctor before beginning a new regimen. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.)


Have you ever had a shot in your knee?  I have. Both knees and several times. I injured my knee and had surgery in 2001 and it’s been icky ever since. My doctor and I go way back and it usually goes something like this:

Me (in the exam room with the doctor and my husband): Are you sure I have to do this?

Doctor: No, you can just live with the pain if you want.

Husband: Oh no! You’re getting the shot. Give me your hand.

Doctor: OK, ready?

Me: No.

Doctor: OK. (as he proceeds to jab a needle the size of a giant nail into my knee.)

Me: (sounds and squeals that I can’t spell)

Husband: (same sounds resulting from me breaking all the bones in his hand – luckily we’re at the orthopedist.)

Doctor: (to husband because he “can’t talk to me when I get like this”): You know the drill…and call me if you need anything for that hand.

Me: Neither one of you love me. (more whining and dramatic hobbling out of the office.)

I would like to do something to avoid having to do that again and I know my husband (and doctor) would appreciate it. Oh top of all that, I’m not getting any younger.  I’m starting to set lines, things are sagging and other stuff just doesn’t feel as strong as it used to be. (I can see a lot of you nodding your heads!) Enter NeoCell Joint Health. They’ve recommended three of their popular products – Super Collagen +C, Collagen Type 2 and Hyaluronic Acid Capsules – a powerful combination of support for your joints and health.

Collagen 1 & 3

Collagen Type 1&3 provides specific amino acids necessary to replenishing the body’s collagen supply helps minimize fine lines & wrinkles, and improves elasticity in the skin builds and supports bone matrix, corrects weak, broken, split and damaged nail beds, thickens fine hair, adds body and slows down hair loss, repairs connective tissues for improved elasticity; improves circulation; promotes wound healing glycine builds lean muscle to help burn fat while you sleep.  Collagen Types 1&3 is 90% of the body’s total collagen supply and the main collagen constituents in the skin, hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, bones and muscles.

Collagen Type 2

Joint Relief Benefits that NeoCell’s Collagen Type 2 provides essential nutrients for complete joint support. As we age, the body’s ability to make the structural protein in cartilage tissue, Collagen Type 2, slows down. This is the protein needed to maintain and rebuild cartilage tissue. NeoCell’s Collagen Type 2 is a naturally complete joint supplement that contains glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid which are key components of supporting and maintaining healthy joint function. Collagen Type 2 supports joint comfort and mobility, and may help with joint swelling and synovial fluid for joint cushioning

NOTE: Collagen Type 1&3 and Collagen Type 2 should not be combined due the types having different amino acid profiles. If taken together, the two proteins will bind and form a complete protein and the body will not recognize it as collagen. The NeoCell folks recommend taking one on the morning and the other at night – or at least an hour apart.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) capsules give your skin and joints the quenching hydration that they crave. Collagen and HA are almost always found together. Collagen provides the mechanical strength of connective tissues and HA, with its ability to bind enormous amounts of water, serves to lubricate these same tissues providing needed hydration. By supplementing with Collagen and HA, you give your body a powerful synergistic team for beautiful skin and healthy connective tissues. 

Get Walking!

After a brief chat with my doctor, I began taking the NeoCell joint health products. The Super Collagen + C (Type 1& 3) suggests three tablets twice per day and I used three each morning before eating anything. I also took one HA capsule each morning.  In the evenings, I had 4 of the Collagen Joint Complex (Type 2) with some orange juice, before dinner. It took a few days to get in the routine and I missed some doses along the way, but I really got in the swing of things after the first week or so.

Around the same time, I invested in a Fitbit to track how much I was walking each day. I thought hitting the recommended 10,000 steps per day would be a piece of cake, but oh man, I was completely wrong! For someone who works at a desk all day then at a computer all evening, I was lucky to hit 3,000 steps. I read that I had to get over 3,000 just to get out of the “sedentary lifestyle” category.  So, long story short, the main thing holding me back was my knee pain.  While taking the NeoCell supplements, I gradually began noticing less pain in my knee and in my back. It was probably three weeks before this happened, but it happened! I was also able to get my average steps per day up over 6,000.

I’m super proud of myself and really grateful to have been able to try NeoCell. It’s truly made a difference.

Petbrosia

 

Don’t miss the giveaway at the end for a chance to win Petbrosia for your pet, too!

petbrosialogo

Flashington Oscar – also know as Flash, Pooka-doo, Boogie Boy, Punky, Dumb Dog, Stretchy McGillicuddy and many variations thereof. Whatever you call him, we love our goofy dachshund, but he’s a little chunky. Because that breed is susceptible to back and joint problems, we’ve been working with out vet to help him drop a few pounds.  When Petbrosia asked if we’d like to try their pet food, I though this was a great opportunity to help Flash get back to his former svelte self!

Feeding pets based on their ideal body condition will lead to a longer and higher quality of life. Petbrosia is a new-to-the-world technology and service that allows pet diets to be custom designed for individual pets, to meet their unique nutritional needs. When I visited Petbrosia.com, the simple ordering process asked for specific information about Flash such as his breed, age, weight and activity level. Using some fancy algorithms, a custom blend was delivered directly to our house in a few days, eliminating the need to go to a store. The automatic replenishment program then automatically adjusts the nutritional profile of the maturing pet…this is the first food that actually grows with your pet. The formulation is a “super premium” natural formula.

They determine the right Petbrosia diet for your pet based on their breed, age, weight, food allergies, activity level, and other needs you feel should be brought to their attention (I mentioned the need to protect his joints, for example, and they fact that he loves fruits and veggies.) Petbrosia then automatically adjusted his energy requirements and ensured appropriate nutrition for him. The main ingredients in all Petbrosia formulas are all-natural meats, fruits, and vegetables grown and raised in America. No unnecessary fillers or artificial additives. The different blends address 7 key areas of your pet’s health ranging from maintaining a healthy coat and skin to supporting a strong immune system. (See: 5 steps to a healthier dog)

When Flash’s bag of food arrived, it contained a description of the food and a customized feed plan specifically for him and his nutritional and health needs.

Flash has never really turned up his nose to any kind of food – the main reason we’re where we are now. However, he seemed to enjoy the Petbrosia food more than his normal food. He also didn’t have a problem transitioning to the new food, but if you’d like more info on that you can find it here.

After a month of Petbrosia food, I’m happy to report that Flash has lost almost a half pound! The vet is pleased and he passed her examination just this week. I’m a Petbrosia fan and it seems that Flash is, too. he’ll staying on this healthier diet!
