How to Save Money With Groupon Coupons

This post is sponsored by Groupon.  As always, all enthusiasm is my own.  

I love to shop, but I love saving money even more.  I try to never pay full price for clothing or my makeup because I'm usually getting things that I want and not that I need.  I like to shop sales, use coupons, and use sites like Groupon to help save money.  Until recently, I thought Groupon was just to buy things or gift certificates at a reduced rate, but it's so much more!  Groupon Coupons help you save money at many national chains.  Keep reading to see how and where I save.

10 Best Curl Defining Products

Spring in Ohio.  Rain, rain, and more rain.  It's been raining almost every day for a week, so I gave up on straightening my hair.  My hair is naturally curly, but I still struggle with getting my curls to stay in place and not have my hair looking wild.  I like my hair to be styled, yet soft.  I don't want it to be stiff or crunchy to the touch.  These are the best curl defining products that I've found, and all of them will hold your curls for hours without giving you crunchy hair.  Even though I love these curl definers, all hair is different.  I wish I could tell you that they will all work equally as well for you, but it is trial and error, unfortunately.  I really suggest reading the reviews before purchasing and don't be afraid to try new products if you haven't found one that you love.

Mixed Berry, Yogurt, and Granola Pops

Summer is coming, and we go through a lot of frozen treats when the weather gets warmer.  I make my kids pops so we can avoid extra sugar, dyes, and high fructose corn syrup.  One of my sons can't have dyes or HFCS, so we can't have most pops.  I usually make our summer treats from juice or dye-free drink mixes, or yogurt.  I love this recipe because it's a little more filling for a mid-day snack, and it's fairly healthy with yogurt, berries, and granola.  It does have some sugar in it, but you might find that you can use less after you make it and adjust to your taste.

Dry Oil Perfume Spray Recipe

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and The Coca-Cola Company. All opinions are mine alone. #ShareMemories #CollectiveBias

When I saw the new Coca-Cola™ Share a Coke and a Song cans, I had to pick some up because I love music.  I have specific playlists on my computer and on my phone so I can select the right music for my mood and the situation.  I have lists for working out, writing, cleaning, and relaxing.  Music not only sets the mood, but it also triggers powerful memories and emotions.  For me, smells are also powerful in evoking my emotions, so that's why I made this dry oil perfume spray, because it also helps me remember happy memories.

How Dryel Saved Mother's Day

This post is brought to you by Dryel, but as always, all enthusiasm is my own.  

Last weekend was Mother's Day.  I usually just relax on Mother's Day and maybe go out for breakfast and spend the rest of the day enjoying doing nothing.  This year, my daughter and I went to a high pink tea at a historic home with Mrs. Mary Todd Lincoln.  The house is a historic icon in our area, so I was really excited to see it.  My daughter loves historic fiction, so she was also very eager to tour the home and "meet" Mrs. Lincoln.  Neither one of us has ever been to a high tea, so we were also really excited to go to tea.  My daughter had several dresses to choose from, but being a work at home mom, I didn't have anything to wear.  Luckily, Dryel saved the day for both of us!

My daughter's dress is dry clean only.  If you've read more than a few posts here, you know that I live in the middle of nowhere.  Dropping off the dry cleaning is never a quick trip.  It would take me an hour to drop it off and another hour to pick it up a few days later.  I don't have time for that!  Luckily, I have Dryel.  

Dryel gives you the freedom to wear what you want.

Since she wore her dress a few times, I wanted to deep clean it.  With Dryel, that only took 30 minutes in the dryer.  And during that time, I could work on other things and didn't have to wait in the car or kill time at a store.  

Dryel also saved my outfit for Mother's Day.  I am very picky when it comes to my clothes.  I don't have a lot of clothes, but what I do have are pieces that I love and that flatter me.  In the past, I stayed away from dry clean only clothes because I knew I would never make it to the dry cleaners.  When I went shopping last week, it felt so liberating to be able to choose anything I wanted and not be stuck with certain fabrics.  I ended up with a skirt and long shirt, and the shirt has to be dry cleaned.  The shirt looks great on me, and I loved the print, so I was so happy to be able to get exactly what I wanted without worrying about how to find time to clean it.  If you need new clothes too, here are some tips from Dryel to help you update your wardrobe.

And our Mother's Day tea?  It was a lot of fun.  There were 10 other women there, so we got to meet new people.  Mrs. Lincoln was fascinating, and the house was gorgeous.  We enjoyed good food, fine tea, and look great thanks to Dryel.
