Back to School Shopping Means Shoes for Mom!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

It is no secret that I am a fan of Shoes and Handbags.....But it is also not a secret that I am averse to overspending. I love Famous Footwear Online fo so many reasons! I find that I am always able to save more by shopping online, simply because of all of the offers available! 


The site is set up to be incredibly easy to use. I was instantly able to narrow the selection, (which is HUGE and requires narrowing) to my colors, sizes and styles and this saved me a TON of time! 




Best of all, because while I do LOVE my shoes, I still have 4 children to deal with, Famous Footwear is offering not only Buy One Get One Free, but ALSO 15% off that! I need to save as much as I can on my kids shoes because as you know, this is the most expensive Back to School Item! Those feet will continue growing, so make sure you grab your coupon! (Hurry! Redeems online and in stores until 8/18)


BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon


If you have a lot of feet to cover like me, (12 feet with 8 growing!!) you will appreciate the Rewards program too! For every dollar spent you will earn a point that can be redeemed for gift cards throughout the year, and if you sign up now? That 15% off turns into 20% off!



Think of it this way- I have 4 pair of sneakers to buy. These are on average $50 each. I could go to Footlocker and spend $200, or I could sign up for the Famous Footwear Rewards Program and spend $120. Do the math, it is true!

#EclosBeauty Skin Care #Review

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ├ęclos Skin Care for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


I was recently lucky enough to receive the Eclos Skin Care line for review, and I LOVE it! ├ęclos Skin Care features Apple Stem Cells extracted from a rare Swiss apple which have shown tremendous ability to stimulate skin stem cells, encouraging aging skin to behave like younger skin. Plant extracts, vitamins and anti-oxidants combine with the Apple Stem Cell technology to help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and tired skin. Brilliant!


What I first loved about this product, was the strong, fresh fragrance. It is similar to lemongrass, and to be perfectly honest, the smell and fresh feeling is what kept me using the product. My skin immediately felt tingly and tight. The problem I usually have with skin care lines, is that I start off strong and use them religiously, until I slack and eventually find a half full tub of cleanser under the sink 4 months later...This time I finished the bottle and I'm sad to see it gone =(


Although I am not by any means a wrinkly old lady, I am beginning to see the meaning of "loose skin" on my face, and I find a new crows foot with every check. Although I only used this product for a couple of weeks, I think you will agree that the difference is noticeable! I look forward to seeing the effects of continued use!


(A new hair cut and color too...what do you think!?)



The entire skin care system includes.....

  • Facial Cleanser Skin Prep (Extends Skin Cell Longevity, Gently Purifies Pores, Primes For Treatment) 
  • Cellular Activator Face Serum (Regenerates Skin Cells, Rehabilitates Aging Skin, Resists Further Damage) 
  • Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream (Awakens Cell Renewal, Brightens Dull Skin, Reduces Line And Wrinkles) 
  • Restorative Eye Cream (Slow Signs of Aging, Firms Delicate Skin, Reduces Fine Lines) 
  • Instant Radiance Facial Scrub (Activates Cell Renewal, Removes Dull, Dry Skin Cells, Improves Texture and Tones) 
  • Skin Renewal Clay Mask (Restores Youthful Texture, Absorbs Dirt and Impurities, Tightens and Reduces Pores) 
  • Eclos Terry Cloth Headband


Buy It- You can purchase the entire eclos skin care line mentioned above for $19.99 at popular retailers such as Ulta, Rite Aid and Walgreens!!


Win It- I've made it as simple as possible to enter- just leave a comment on this blog post stating which product in the kit you are most excited to try.

April Showers Bring- #Gardening!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Whitney Farms for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

AdvertisementWe grow our own veggies every year, and I love the beauty of a diapered child picking a fresh greeb bean and crunching on it in the yard. It is important to me to have safe options for my plant food and Whitney Farms® allows me to do that!

The difference in or outcome with plant food is amazing, and since we feed out family throughout the summer with out own produce, that is very important to me! Our soil is primarily clay, so organic soil makes an instant difference, but organic plant food is the real deal maker. Whitney Farms® is offering a $3 off coupon for their foods and soils, and the use of a nutritional food will change the look of your garden completely! Enjoy greater output and sized fruits and vegetables!

I especially look forward to canning fresh tomato sauce and the big beautiful floral blooms that make this time of year so sweet. The natural beauty of kids playing outside...grabbing a basket and running barefoot outside to grab berries for dessert or cereal. Feeling the same amazement they do every year when that tiny seed quickly sprouts up, seemingly before your eyes. I love that my kids get to see and experience that, and I hoe it is something they will carry onto their children as well :)

3 Pairs of glasses for under FIFTEEN DOLLARS!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zenni Optical. All opinions are 100% mine.

This is an AMAZING deal...A-MAZING! If you have glasses in your family now is the time to strike!! Zenni Optical is holding a Buy 2 Get 1 Free event, and while that usually sound interesting but does NOT make me jump up and down because prices are often too high that I wouldn't want to buy 2, Zenni has prescription glasses for under $7??? Really?

So I had to go look and see if this was true, and sure enough it is! Although there are SOME glasses that are more, (topping out at only $46 anyway) there are TONS and TONS of $6.95 prescription eyeglasses to choose from! I am not even kidding, and I usually don't get so excited about an offer, but today this offer is NUTS!!!

These do include the prescription lenses, so there is no hidden trick there. The styles that are priced this way are not the ugly non selling glasses, they are so cute!!! I have needed glasses for a long time, and frankly hadn't found it to be enough of a problem to put the effort into fixing the problem. Now I ust have no excuses!

I am so looking forward to my new looks, and with this sale I will have THREE new looks!
