Homemade Cranberry Almond Sauce with Planter’s Cocoa Almonds


This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GonutsforNuts #CollectiveBias In my opinion, cranberry sauce is under-rated! I am sure that I am not alone when I say that many of the dishes we create for holidays we are thinking about leftovers. While Cranberry Sauce is great for leftovers don't forget to appreciate it's important during the holiday meal! What really sets my Cranberry Sauce a part is the Planter's Cocoa Almonds that I add in to make it a little Better-for-You found at many retailers including Wal-Mart. What's your favorite holiday dish? Planter's holiday display is hard to miss and so festive at that!    Actually you can take it one step further with the Blippar app to learn about products, recipes, take a selfie with Mr. Peanut, and more while at the display or at home! ~~~~~ Boys doing Selfie w/ Mr. Peanut! #GoNutsForNuts #ad #Cbias A photo posted by Natalie Zanatta (@mrsnzanatta) on … [Read more...]

Bigelow Tea Chai Whipped Cream


Please note: This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser as part of my partnership as #BigelowVIP. All opinions are mine alone. #AmericasTea #CollectiveBias Chai latte has been my drink of choice since I worked in a health food/Coffee Shop in college. The first time someone described it to me they said that it was black tea, milk, and pumpkin pie spices. It was love at first taste! Over the years though, I got use to my style recreated from the coffee shop. I don't always like buying it now because everyone has their own variation of making it. Honestly I think it comes down to the quality of tea too! That's why I love using my favorite brand Bigelow Tea that just so happens to be available at Wal-Mart. Join me in using my favorite (and yours or soon to be!)  tea to flavor whipped cream to add a little pizzazz to pumpkin pie or by the spoonful...  What's awesome about this recipe is that the effort can be as little or as great as you want!?! Not too … [Read more...]

Day in the Life of Great Hair Everyday with Infiniti Pro by Conair® Curl Secret®


This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #HeartMyHair #CollectiveBias Great Hair Everyday does not come naturally to all women. It DEFINITELY does not come naturally for me! I feel like when I was younger that I missed out on hair/makeup lessons. I didn't really put any effort into it in my teens with the exception of when my best friend would do my hair and makeup ;) Now as a 30-something mom, I am finally taking some time for me! Beauty & Fashion are great ways to let us celebrate inside and out healthy living! As someone with wavy hair, the Conair Curl Secret is a great way to define rather than fight my hair. This is me first thing in the morning. The night before I just let it airdry to show the normal beachy waves I generally wear. Changing hair styles is one of my favorite things to do! Normally I go drastic from long-ish hair to pixie. I am really liking the youthful look of longer styles as I get … [Read more...]

Welcome to the 30s with Build up, Breakouts, & Thinning Hair


Please note: This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MoreIsBeautiful #CollectiveBias As I have gotten older, I have really started to feel great about my image, my health, and overall state of being. So I hate the idea that I feel self-conscious at times about my thinning hair. To be honest,  I tend to put on a hat or hair extensions (yes I have on hair extensions in some pictures where I have thicker looking hair) to avoid dealing with the real problem! I am not a complainer. I am a go-getter and I am excited to see what Rogaine for Women can do for my hair! Rogaine for Women is a great addition to your daily hair routine to thicken your hair. I have tried MANY different types of products to help give me thicker-looking hair from volumizing to thickening to less breakage, etc... However that's the problem!!! I wasn't trying to get to the "root" of the problem just looking at a quick fix instead. All those … [Read more...]

Bigelow Tea’s dedication to sustainability is Inspiring


Please note: This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias #AmericasTea #BigelowVIP Bigelow Tea's dedication to sustainability is inspiring! Bigelow Tea has incorporated many efforts to be sustainable from their packaging (excluding the foil) being biodegradable from their efforts in their cafeteria to solar panels. Almost everything in their cafeteria is compostable and compost is sent to gardens. Did you know that their regular trashcans are only used for foil and even the foil is recycled? What do you do in your own household to live a more sustainable lifestyle? The point I am getting at Bigelow Tea has been going beyond what the average household does to live a sustainable life. That is inspiring! Bigelow Tea has made a company-wide commitment to achieve "Zero Waste to Landfill" status. We have been using as our guide the guidelines of the Zero Waste Alliance which state that a company can claim … [Read more...]

All opinions are mine alone. #AmericasTea #CollectiveBias Last year I was able to experience the Bigelow Tea’s Charleston Tea Plantation {America’s largest working tea garden} with the Bigelow family.
