Spread the Holiday Cheer When You Shop Sears!

I couldn't wait to do this blog post for Sears and Smiley360! I am certainly a Christmas decor nut so this opportunity gave me the perfect chance to get out to Sears and shop for more holiday items. I actually found some inspiration for my Sears project on pinterest (of course) so when I went to Sears to shop, I already had an idea in my head of what I was looking for. 
I asked my parents to come along because they love shopping as much as I do and they both love Sears. I immediately went to the holiday section with my step-mom to look for bows for my project but we both got sidetracked by this amazing smell! We seriously searched all over the holiday section until we found what the smell was coming from. It from was an end cap with paper bags of the best smelling potpourri I've ever smelled! 

Next we headed on over to the section with the holiday bows and found the perfect bows for my Sears project (seen below). Both the bows are the same red glittery bows but they are splendid additions to this project! I had a fun time going through the Sears holiday section and found some pretty neat Christmas collectibles that I will be going back for. My parent's had a fun time shopping as well and we all racked up some nice rewards from the Shop Your Way Rewards program for our purchases.
If you'd like to try this project at home, listen up! It's extremely simple and my family and I had a blast doing it together. All you need is a tension bar or cheap curtain rod, some garland, fabric ribbon, a big bow, and bulb ornaments (and obviously scissors and glue or tape). All we did was measure out the windows so we knew what size bar we needed and taped the center of the bar so it wouldn't slide when we were working on it. We next wrapped the bar with garland and super glued it to both ends leaving about 4 inches bare on each end. Then we tied different lengths of the fabric ribbon to the bar about 4-5 inches apart. Next we slid the little bulbs towards the top of the ribbon, tied them on, then tied the bigger bulbs to the ends. We finished this project off by twisting the big bow on at the center of the bar and voila! The bow I bought from Sears really makes this project an eye-catcher! 
Going to Sears has always been an adventure for me and Sears has honestly given me some great memories. When I was younger, my grandfather used to drag me to Sears every Sunday morning so he could shop for tools. Boring for a child like me but I still enjoyed spending time with my grandfather, although, occasionally I snuck off to play on the escalators. I remember one time, when I was about 4 or 5 years old, my grandparents were doing some holiday shopping and apparently I got bored so I snuck off to the escalators as usual. Only this time, I got stuck. I decided to climb the escalators up the wrong way but couldn't figure out how to get back down so I freaked. My grandfather came to my rescue quickly and we then proceeded to shop some more. Point being, I think there are loads of people out there that have some sort of memory from shopping at Sears when they were children. Sears has been around for a very long time and they will continue to be around so why not start some new memories with your children this Holiday season? Before you head out shopping at Sears this year, sign up for the Shop Your Way Rewards program so you can earn money off towards future purchases.

Check out the Sears Cheer Headquarters for Holiday decorating tips, inspiration, and great deals. When your done there you can head on over the the Sears Holiday Shop to shop for the perfect additions to your Holiday themes (I spent hours here before I went out shopping and found some great ideas for next year)! Enter the Holiday Home Makeover with Ty Pennington Sweepstakes, as well!

#HintingSeason with LG OLED at Best Buy

#HintingSeason is upon us and if you're anything like me, only top-of-the-line electronics will do! The LG OLED TV at Best Buy is on the top of my wish list this year, but, LG's latest display technology is something you must see and experience to fathom the perfection of it's picture quality.

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…

Rent College Textbooks and Save Up to 80%!

This is a "sponsored post." The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value. 

I recently went back to college to work on my Bachelor of Science degree for Nutrition. It's been about 7 years since I've had to purchase college textbooks and let me tell you, the prices have gone up dramatically! I registered for a Sociology class but had to drop it because I couldn't afford the book which was $239! That's outrageous!  I understand that I could always sell the book back to the school at the end of the semester, but, you and I both know that the colleges only offer you a fraction of what you paid. Plus, there was no way I could afford that book on top of my $200 Statistics book, graphing calculator, and two other textbooks needed for classes.  I like to save as much money as possible, especially on things I'll only be using for a short time. This is exactly why I'm using Campusbookrentals.com for the other two …
