Legalese Nonsense: I love doing fun things with the kids so when I was given the chance to go to a festival in exchange for sharing discounts with you it was a no-brainer!

It’s almost Fall! Here in Texas that’s hard to believe with the temperatures still reaching into the 90s, but as I see the leaves just beginning to change I’m excited to know that cooler weather and everything fun that Fall brings is just around the corner!

One thing that I’ve been wanting to do is bring Amber and Tyler to a fun fall festival this year–so when I was sent this list of great festivals and discounts I knew I had to share them with you! Download valuable coupons for Corn Mazes, Pumpkin Patches and Fall Family Activities all across the USA!

Burts Bees Sensitive Skin Line *Review & Coupons*

This might come as a little shocking but for someone who cares a lot about their makeup routine I usually use nothing but water and a wash rag to clean my face at night–yepp, you heard me right!

The reason for this is that it seems like once I got out of my teen years the stuff for oily skin made my cheeks all dry and patchy, while most “combination skin” products left me with teenage zits all around my nose–yuck. So it was just good old water for me.

The Burts Bees Sensitive Skin Facial Cleaner and Moisturizer didn’t leave me with either of the above problems-I was so impressed! My skin just feels soft and clean. An extra bonus is that it did a great job of removing the heavy duty new mascara I just bought! The fact that it is 99% natural is great too, I don’t have sensitive skin myself, but the fact that both of my kids have eczema has really opened my eyes to being careful about what I’m putting on my and their skin!

Thanks to BzzAgent I have several $1 off coupons as well as samples for the Burts Bees Natural Skin Care Line, they also offer Night Cream and Eye Cream in the line as well! Just leave a comment if you’d like me to mail you a coupon or sample!

What do you normally use to wash your face with? Have you ever tried Burts Bees? Do you like them or not?

Totsy: Holiday Dollie and Me Gorgeous Outfits

Ok first off I have to apologize for the major influx of posts today! I thought I was done but I seriously had to share this one with you! I’d heard of Totsy before but never take the plunge and purchased anything. When I say this priced at $20.75 for BOTH dresses (they were $58) I quicked boogied over to check it out! Awesomely the biggest size they carried 6X is exactly what Amber wears and I used the code BACK2SCHOOL which gave me an additional 10% off and since it was my very first order it shipped for free meaning I only ended up paying $18.68 for them! Plus I can choose to either get the FREE subscription to Family Fun magazine OR a $10 rebate! This means that I can have paid as little as $8.68 for these dresses–and if you’ve bought little girls Christmas dresses before you know that you can hardly get a Wal*Mart dress on clearance for that price!!! They have a ton of other dresses too–I had the worst time deciding between this one and the gorgeous purple dress, but since we’ve done purple the last 2 Christmases and I’m on a b&w kick this one won out 🙂

I’d highly encourage you to head on over to Totsy and check out this and the other great sales they have! I know I’m sold!

A great big thank you to My Litter who gave me the heads up on this deal!

Dr. Scholl’s High Heel Inserts *Review & Coupons*

 Although I *love* high heels I don’t love the aching feet they often bring! I have always thought about trying out inserts to help with this problem but never had until Bzz Agent gave me the chance to try out the Dr. Scholl’s® For Her High Heel Insoles.  They were perfect to provide extra comfort in my wedges and were invisible.  (as you can see above–the only thing you can see is my uber cute shoes and toes!) Though I don’t think they’d allow me to be on my feet in high heels all day they were perfect for a day mixed with sitting and standing. I tested them out for Sunday’s–a day mixed with hauling kids in and out of church and back and forth to houses.

These are great and I will be buying additonal pairs to put in my other high heels as well!

I was provided with several $4 off coupons! (I priced these at Wal*Mart yesterday and they were right around $7 so that means you can get them for the super low price of 3 bucks!)

If you’d like one of these coupons just leave a comment bellow and I’ll get in touch with you for your mailing address!

Because everyone wants to look fabulous *and* be comfortable!

MyMemories Suite Digital Scrabooking Software *Review & Giveaway*

As many of you know by now, I’m some what of a digi-scrapping addict! In case you missed it I talk about how I came to begin digitally scrapping here. The bug that bit so hard has never gone away! I still also do pages for my scrap-for-hire site, Artistic Albums by Nicole. Although I’m not actively promoting it I just got 2 big orders from loyal customers and have been staying up late scrapping!

If you have followed me along my scrapping journey you know that up until this point the only software I’d ever used was Photoshop Elements. While it is true that PSE is wonderful for scrapping it is also far from user friendly! I actually ended up crying (literally) when I first was using it because I had spent an hour trying to figure a certain thing out and even with online tutorials I just couldn’t get it to work! I don’t get easily flustered or frustrated but I was pulling my hair out! Also PSE running price is right around $100-for you frugal (total side note, isn’t that a lovely word–we no longer have to be called “cheap” or “tightwads” -no we’re frugal!!! but I digress) if you are *frugal* like me that price is enough to make you drop the digi dream right there.

The wonderful aspect of MyMemories Suite is that it is extremely user friendly and also affordable! I put the above layout together in about 15 minutes and that was with never using the software before at all! (even with knowing PSE it still takes me a good 30 min to an hour to complete a layout start to finish) This layout is extremely simple but as I said, it was my very first try with using the software. They have a great feature in that it can be as easy as them building the pages for you, or you can build it all yourself, as I did above. You can still use their templates but I was pleased that I could move the photo slots around, delete them, or adjust their size-so even when using templates you can truly make the page your own. I took a picture so you can get a feel of what it looks like when you first open a template:

 Another thing that I loved about this is that although it does come with a bunch of pre-built papers and embellishments already in the program, if you have digital scrapping kits on your computer you can actually go ahead and use them as well. I had actually fallen in love with MyMemories digital kits before I’d ever used the software or was approached by the company. I used the Coming Home kit that I had previously gotten from them to do the layout above, since I felt that it was only fitting! Their digital kits are extremely high quality, I love them! The ones I got are also scrap-for-hire friendly–which instantly endears them to my heart as well 😉

Just in case you’d like a little more in-depth look so you can see all of the great things that you can do with this software (you can create things like calendars, photo books, cards, videos and lots more!) here is a video:

I saved the best for last! If you use Coupon Code: STMMMS65515  You can get the great deal of getting $10 off the software and $10 in free merchandise from MyMemories.com!! Since the software is only $39.97 you will be getting a great bargin!

Pampers Gifts To Grow Point Codes

I first heard about Gifts to Grow from my lovely and wonderful friend Jaimin (who blogs on over at Crazy Love) when she posted about it on Facebook. Since my little man does best in Pampers I’ve been buying them by the bucketloads since he was born.

It totally made my morning when one of my fav bloggers My Litter posted these Point Codes! 😀 😀 😀 So I thought I’d pass them along to you as well! 🙂 There are a few that are expired, but it’s worth taking the 4 minutes to put them all in 🙂
