Stay Cozy and Arm Knit this Polar Fleece Scarf

Oh boy, it’s cold outside! There have been subzero temperatures and snowstorms here in Minnesota. I’m constantly having to bundle up to venture out to get necessities like milk and coffee. I would rather stay inside and make things: particularly on those blizzardy days. For the DIY this week, I decided to make something soft that’s also great for braving the chilly outdoors. This polar fleece scarf is arm knit to create big, fluffy loops of coziness.

Warm and Cozy Products for the Coming Winter Chill

October just flew past, and it’s nearly November. It has officially turned chilly out. Perhaps more than chilly as the weather heads toward the frigid cold of Minnesota winter. Frankly it’s more frightening that winter is nearly here than the fact that Halloween is just a few days away. While I’m prepared for Halloween, I’m not as prepared for winter. Here in Minnesota you do have to actually prepare for winter. Blizzards are not uncommon on Halloween, so I checked out Heartland America to put together a great assortment of products to keep you warm and cozy this winter.

A winter coat is an essential in style and warmth when the cold weather hits.

Coats and Jackets to Keep You Nice and Warm
Womens Leather Coat, Men’s Remington Peacoat, Hawke & CO Black Down Puffer Jacket, Hawke & CO Navy Blue Down Puffer Jacket, Hawke & CO Loden Green Down Puffer Jacket, Womens Genuine Tan Suede Leather Coat, Men’s Sherpa Lined Denim Jacket

There is nothing more classic than leather coat. This Black Leather Coat by Vintage Leather is tailored from fine napa leather. It also has diamond quilted lining for warmth and comfort. You should have at least one leather coat, and this one is stylish and cozy.

Repurpose DIY: T-Shirt Pillow

Are you ready for fall yet? I can’t wait! I’m kinda over summer. If you have a student going into college, they are experiencing a mixture of excitement and nerves. The thought of living in the dorms is especially fun and a bit scary. When I was in college, my roommate and I made our room one of the cutest on that floor. Making the dorm room a comfy oasis is a must for students that are away from home. But that can get expensive, so this week I decided to do a budget decor DIY for any dorm room or bedroom.

T-Shirt Pillow DIY

These pillows can be made very cheaply or even free. You can customize these t-shirt pillows for anyone with the right shirt. I am currently on a t-shirt pillow making spree, as you can see. They are fun to make, and you can make your own in less than an hour.

A New Year: the Perfect Time to Start a New You

It’s a brand new year! Although resolutions are all well and good, I am striving for more permanent changes in my life. There are many things that I want to get started now and continue through the entire year. Things like getting organized, cooking new things, and being the best version of myself.

One of the things that I know I need to work on to become the best version of myself is exercising…regularly. Not just the maybe once a week when I feel like it. Because let’s face it, I rarely feel like it.

I’m not a fitness expert, but Heartland America offers a variety of exercise equipment so that anyone can workout from the comfort of their own home.

I have compiled a variety of ideas for you, for your man, and for both of you. There’s no time like the present to get started on a healthier, happier you.

Women's Fitness Equipment
Sony Portable CD/Cassette Boombox, Ab Circle Pro, Women’s Hi-Tec Darwen Running Shoes, Step 360 Exercise with Cords.

Music always helps me get charged up for my workout. If you exercise at home, you can crank it up with the Sony Portable Boombox and never have to deal with headphones.

The Ab Circle Pro is a great way to get your upper, middle, and lower abs in shape and give you that lovely small waist you’ve always wanted. It’s simple and offers three levels of resistance so you can train at your own level of fitness.

Walking or running improves your whole body strength and endurance. Hi-Tec Darwen Running Shoes bring together quality and comfort to propel you further in your fitness goals with shock-absorbing soles and traction to keep you on the right path.

With the Step 360 Exercise Board you can get a full body workout. The adjustable air-filled chambers offer progressive resistance as your fitness level improves. The step board also interlocks with resistance cords to tone your arms, back and chest, and flip it over for a stable place to attain deep stretches.

 

If you or your man are into building muscle tone the next products will help you get there. Read more

Gift Ideas for Every Guy on Your List

Christmas time is upon us! I don’t know about you but it is my favorite time of year. Everything seems brighter and warmer and that’s not just because of the snow outside forcing me to snuggle up inside.

Giving people gifts that they love is one of my favorite parts of the season. I have lots of ideas for all the ladies on my list, but ideas for the guy’s gifts are not coming to me as easily.

So I decided to start at Heartland America and make some inspiration boards on the types of guys I need to buy for. I hope these boards help you out as well!

First, no doubt there’s an avid golfer guy somewhere on your gift list:

 

Collapsible Chipping Basket, 50 pack of Titleist Pro Golf Balls, Golf Organizer Trunk Locker, Deluxe Ball Shag Bag, PowerBilt Deluxe Golf Cart in Black, and Indoor / Outdoor Swing Groover

With winter in full swing, golfers need to practice somewhere to keep their game sharp. The Collapsible Chipping Basket allows the golfer in your life to keep practicing their shots indoors and folds up for easy storage.

Even if they are a seasoned pro, there will still be some golf balls lost along the way. Help them stock up before hitting the course this spring with a 50 pack of Titleist Pro Golf Balls.

The Golf Organizer Trunk Locker will help keep things neatly organized and ready to hit the course at a moment’s notice.

Help your golf guy out by getting him the Deluxe Ball Shag Bag. Then he won’t have to continually bend down to retrieve his golf balls. You simply place the tube over the golf ball and press down firmly, the golf balls are then deposited into the attached bag.

He will love not having to carry his golf bag around when you get him the PowerBilt Deluxe Golf Cart. That way he can spend his energy on getting that hole in one and not on lugging his bag all over the course.

Right or left handed golfers will keep in excellent form over the cold winter months with the Indoor/Outdoor Swing Groover.

 

For guys who can’t get enough of the great outdoors, here are some ideas that they’ll love:
