Container Gardening with Miracle Gro

This post brought to you by Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.

I live in an apartment and don’t have much space for a garden, but I love to have green plants growing around me.  One of these days, I will have a yard and a place to plant in the ground but for now, container gardening fills the gap.
 
I was looking at the videos on the Gardenieres site, and found one about growing plants in containers.  When I found it, my first thought was, literally, ‘that is right up my alley!’ I have a couple of plants on my patio that I want to try to keep over the winter, and would like to start a little herb garden.  The video was full of information and gave me the knowledge to try my green thumb.
 
 

 
The video pointed out the importance of having the right sized pots, as well as making sure you use the correct potting mix and fertilizer.  Miracle Gro makes a couple of great Potting Mixes, the Standard Miracle Gro Potting Mix, which contains a slow release plant fertilizer that will feed your plants for up to six months; or the new Expand n Gro Potting Soil, which expands to three times its original size when water is added.  This means that it has superior water and nutrient retention.

They also make a couple of fertilizers that are ideal for container gardening; Miracle Gro LiquaFeed that is mixed with water, or “the lazy man’s fertilizer” Shake n Feed fertilizer that is sprinkled on the soil once or twice per year.  This definitely sounds like my kind of gardening!
 
Between the video guidance and Miracle Gro’s products, I know that container gardening is going to be a win-win situation.  With the weather getting colder outside, it’s really time to move those plants indoors; and maybe even get some new plants for the holidays!

I like quirky, fun cars.  I always have.  My friend had a late 1950’s Volvo when we were just beginning to drive, and I still want one to this day.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, if not my very favorite.  I love seeing all the kids dressed up in their adorable costumes.  They’re so thrilled to be all dressed up.  The local stores are filled with candy.   Mmmm….candy. And have you seen   all the decorations that people put up?  I mean, it’s almost as good as Christmas! 

Have you seen the Hallmark Halloween decorations this year?  Hallmark has really come through!  Granted, they always seem to have awesomely fun items for every season, but these Hallmark Halloween decorations really take the cake.

Sibu Beauty and a Skin Care Regimen

sibu spa Sibu Beauty and a Skin Care Regimen

 

For the past couple of months, I’ve been trying out the Sibu Beauty skin care regimen.  I’ve posted a time or two about my prior lack of a skincare routine. When I say lack of a skincare routine, I mean it.  I would wash my face when I was in the shower.  I might or (usually) not use moisturizer. I rarely removed my makeup before bedtime.  And preventative or anti-aging treatments?  Uhhh…can I plead the fifth on that? 

Well, I mean, you can probably figure that out for yourself.  If I’m not moisturizing, I’m definitely not using serums, eye creams, and stuff like that.  In the past couple of years, though, my life has changed drastically.  I had a birthday.  And then another one that put my perilously close to that landmark 3-0.

Cleava Snap to Bra Mock Camisole Review

Cleava2 Cleava Snap to Bra Mock Camisole Review

 

Have you seen Cleava?  If you watch just about any amount of TV, I’m sure you have.  Cleava are the product that gives the illusion of a camisole, but it snaps to your bra.  It’s great for low cut tops, or to change the look of your clothes up a little.  We all have tops that are a little too low cut, or give a peep-show when we bend over.  I thought that Cleava mock camisole would be the perfect accessory to help with that problem.
