Groupon Goods Campaign Money Saving on Portraits with Groupon



This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine


Have you ever heard of Groupon before?? I have to tell you some amazing things about Groupon Goods  there are so many things out there you can get with Groupon it is wonderful. But something that pops up in my mind this specific time of year is Groupon's awesome deals on Portraits they have so many amazing deals it's great. It is always nice to stay signed in because then you are getting deals around your local area to check out and it narrows it down that way.



And of course with this time of year around you can find amazing deals all around the Groupon Goods area I know with my photos are a big thing around the holiday's as I know this is right with a lot of parents whether you're taking Christmas photos or just ones of sisters together you can find your deals on Groupon. 


Seriously when looking up photography on Groupon the options are endless and for me, it's good to always have options. These are really great gifts to give also. Who wouldn't love a gift for photography I know I would any chance I have to get my family together to snap some photos and cherish memories.

I have to tell you about Basic Invite they have so many items on their site whether you're planning a wedding, baby shower. graduation, holiday cards, you name it they have it all. I had the pleasure of going to their site and ordering a few samples to try out and I have to tell you their service is pretty amazing and the navigation is really smooth.



I ordered about 6 samples of thank you cards and I was pretty excited. I am really into the whole planner thing and thank you cards so that was right up my alley. I was able to go to the site and go through a lot of styles they had and customize them the way I wanted too. I like the whole mint, gray, and white colors so this is the color scheme I stuck with. Now that the holiday is coming up I would really recommend checking out this site for all your Christmas Card needs. It's so easy to customize and make your own designs to personalize them the way you like them. They have something for everyone.



They have so many colors you can change your fonts too they are endless. I was thinking about doing a pink scheme but stuck with the mint green color instead. 


I am loving everything from the colors you can change all the text to the colors you want I am really loving how customizable it is. And you can change the font of the text to on the cards.



The chevron print is pretty amazing again you can customize everything on this card too.



They have different designs to choose from you can even upload a photo if you're doing maybe wedding thank you cards which I think is really nice because it's more personalized. 



It's really amazing they give you the option to order samples on their site so you can actually see what the invite or thank you cards look like ahead of time. They also have different color envelopes to customize with your invites or thank you cards or whatever you get.

Keep Track of your Loved Ones with Xnspy

Being a mother, it feels like those times where everything is little too agglomerated and out of control. When it comes to our kids, they are so closely connected to the world of internet and social media that their alienation from digital devices seems like a rarity. As a parent, I the excessive screen time of my children always worries me, and I know that I am not the only one who is going through this enigma, i.e. how to limit our kids’ access to their personal devices? Just recently, I got my hands onto a mobile monitoring application, and after having some serious success with controlling screen time on my daughter’s iPad, I have finally decided to give it a detailed review for my readers.

Color Me Mine Tampa Review


Disclaimer: I was sent products for free or highly discounted to review for my honest opinion. These products are from a PR agency or a company. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. Your opinions may vary from my opinions. Please allow 8 weeks to receive product. For Giveaway items.




We had so much fun at Color Me Mine Tampa what is color me mine you ask?? It is a pottery place where you pick out a piece of pottery that you like and then you paint away. Paint this piece of pottery and you do about 3 coats of each color on whatever you picked out because doing the 3 coats it will make the object nice and bright. The kid's really enjoyed painting and creating their own project.



So my kid's really enjoyed picking out their pieces of pottery my daughter picked a cupcake piece that you can put stuff inside and she puts her jewelry in it and she loves it. With the pieces, she picked a pink color, and mint, and a pretty blue color. And for my son he picked out a cowboy boot and choose the colors red, green, and like a burnt orange color. I love the fact that the employees are there to help you pick your colors and always have a helping hand whenever you need it.





So basically after we picked out our colors and we set at a table. At the table, there are the newspapers down to make sure you don't get anything all over the place there are also cups of water in the middle that are always being changed out. So to get started all we did was pick our colors they placed them on a tile you take the tile to your table and brushes and get started we grabbed about three brushes each and started to paint.





It didn't take much at all to get these finished. We were in there about 45 minutes with both children.  I think this is a perfect thing to do during the summer and holidays to get out of the house and enjoy family time. So when we were done we paid for our pieces they label them and took them in the back it basically takes about a week to receive your item. And that's about how long it took exactly. 


We had so much fun and would definitely like to visit in the future.
