So many days I truly wonder “What would I do without my mom!”

And with Mother’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to let her know how special she is.

Shine Bright Gift Idea #BestMomsDayEver #Ad

This year I headed to Walmart to pick up my Mother’s Day cards and I thought it would be fun to put together a gift basket of yellow items with the theme “Shine Bright.”  I want my mom to know just how much she shines to me and our entire family.  She really is the shining star of our family.  And boy was this gift fun to put together.  I walked around and picked up items that were all yellow and that I knew she would like.

Shine Bright Mother's Day Gift Idea

Then I filled a craft paint bucket I had with yellow tissue paper and placed all the items inside.

Shine Bright Mother's Day Gift Idea

I created the gift tag using gold scrapbook paper and gold letters and attached it to the bucket using yellow ribbon.

Super easy gift to put together and it’s such a fun gift to give.

Juicing Into the New Year Giveaway

Let’s start the week off with an AWESOME giveaway!

I’ve teamed up with a great group of blogger friends to bring you this fantastic Juicing into the New Year Giveaway.

Juicing into the New Year Giveaway

Are you wondering what a masticating juicer is?

There are two main types of juicers, centrifugal juicers and slow (or masticating) juicers. Centrifugal juicers work by shredding the fruits and vegetables and spin at high speed to separate the pulp and juice. Slow or masticating juicers crush and grind the fruits and vegetables to extract the juice, then filter out the pulp. They’re called slow juicers because they don’t spin rapidly, but they still only takes minutes to produce juice! Slow juicers produce drier pulp than centrifugal juicers, and extract more juice from leafy greens like kale. A slow juicer tends to be less frothy.

And we are giving away one Breville BJS600XL Fountain Crush Masticating Slow Juicer! You can read more about it HERE.

Juicing into the New Year Giveaway

All the bloggers on the Rafflecopter entry form have pitched in to buy this Breville BJS600XL Fountain Crush Masticating Slow Juicer for one lucky reader to win. We are all wanting to help one lucky reader begin their New Year healthier. We all love knowing that one of our readers has the chance to be the winner!  This Breville Masticating Juicer retails for $599!
