Black Friday is one day of the year that I refuse to actually step foot in a store.  I have never been a huge fan of crowds but I AM a huge fan of saving money.

Affordable Fashion for Everyone at Modnique

This post about affordable fashion has been sponsored by Modnique and Splash Creative Media but all opinions expressed are my own. Christmas is coming soon and a week after that is my daughter's 12th birthday.  I have discovered that my daughter is a mini fashionista and the only things on her list of 'wants' this year are clothes, shoes, makeup and bling.  I was more into frogs and climbing trees at her age but she has a style all her own and is eager to express herself in a unique way. While I am all for her expressing her uniqueness, I need her to do it on a decent budget!  I have my eye out everywhere I can for affordable fashion ideas that will be a hit with her this year.  When I was asked to check out the Modnique website,  I saw tons of affordable fashion ideas that would make … [Read more...]

Disclaimer: This discussion about teen shopping tips is a sponsored post. I am a Kmart blogger, though all opinions are my own Gone are the days when I could go out to the store and leave my kids home with dad while I shopped for their clothes.  Back to school shopping used to mean that my husband spent a couple hours playing with the kids and I headed to the mall for some peace and quiet.  Yes, when you have small children, malls are considered QUIET places!  If you are blessed with teens and tweens like I am you have probably learned that they are not as easy to shop for as smaller children. So, in an effort to keep the peace in my house I have come up with a few shopping tips for teens. I hope they come in handy during this chaotic back to school season!

Coastal.com can help fit glasses into your busy schedule

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Coastal.com for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Up until a couple of years ago I had absolutely perfect vision.  Then I hit 40 and everything started falling apart on me, including my eyes.  I found myself squinting, holding things farther away or closer to my face, and asking my kids to read things to me. Yup, getting old is no fun!  So, I headed to the eye doctor for an exam.  After she gave me a prescription for some eyeglasses I started looking at the selection and the prices and thought maybe I didn't need glasses quite that badly!  Fast forward 2 years and I find myself really wanting to get a pair but just too busy to drive back over to the eye doctor for a second look at the options. I recently learned about a website … [Read more...]
