Furnish Your Home With Groupon Goods

Groupon Goods

(*This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.*)

When my husband and I first moved into our apartment we had no children at the time. My parents helped furnish our place. My dad had found a few items at yard sales, built us a book shelf and refinished a coffee table. We still have these pieces to this day. 

As I get older, I want new furniture for our place. We are also hoping to be first time home buyers soon. In that case, you need to furnish your new home. Whether you are in an apartment or house, new furniture can get expensive. Buying a home is already a lot of money. Anytime we can save is helpful.

With Groupon Goods you can save a lot of money and find nice items at the same time. I found this deal here on an entertainment center. Many of the deals are over 50% off. There is even a place on the side where you can say minimum and maximum price on what you want to spend. This will save time of you scrolling through every single item. 

Some of the products qualify for free shipping if you spend $35 or more. Some restrictions apply.

Groupon Goods

I'm going to be checking out the baby and kids furniture section soon. We are due to have baby number 3 in late September. In our apartment we are always trying to find new ways of making the space work better for us. 

There is a furniture category for every room in your home. Find great deals now for your kitchen and bathroom too.

Make Your Own Shopkins Charm Bracelet

Shopkins Charms

In season 5 of Shopkins there are cute, little charms that come in the 5 and 12 packs. My daughter loves Shopkins and has quite a collection now. We made her a little bracelet before she got the actual rubber one that comes with the 5 packs. 

You can use any beads and string you want. We had these wood beads laying around. We also used a elastic black cord. 

Shopkins Charm Bracelet

This is the actual bracelet that comes with the Shopkins. I think its fun to make the bracelets using beads that the kids will like. They can make it themselves too. Go to the craft store and let them pick out some colorful ones to match the Shopkins.
Do you have a Shopkins fan at home? New dolls and play sets keep coming out.

Stylish Sunglasses


I recently got a pair of sunglasses on Amazon sold by LotFancy. I haven't worn sunglasses in a really long time and needed a pair. I'm not sure why I haven't bought a pair up until now. You'll see me stepping outside without squinting from now on.

This is a nice, sturdy pair of glasses. The white rims are fun and stylish. It even comes with a protective case. This is great for me because my kids tend to destroy my stuff. 

Sunglasses sold by Lotfancy

They do look large on my face but I like that kind of look. As a teenager, I owned a pair of white sunglasses that were a little more cat like.

If you are in need of a pair of sunglasses check out Lotfancy on Amazon. They have different styles to choose from. I liked the polarized tint to the glasses. When I wore them, it didn't make things around me too dark looking.

Discount Code for my readers. This code is good before July 31st for 15% off.


I think the prices are great too. I don't spend a lot of money on myself these days. Anything under $20 is a good price to me.

(*I received these glasses at a discount to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.*)

My Mini Mixie Q's Blind Box

My Mini Mixie Q

My Mini Mixie Q's are super tiny but super cute. They are the newest blind boxes on the market. Brought to you by Mattel. You get 2 per box. My daughter is already loving these. 

My Mini Mixie Q's

Each Mini Mixie Q comes with a hair style and an outfit that you can take off. You can switch them around and create different looks. In our place, they are easily lost. We have a ton of tiny toys.

This little one is Gamer Girl. We also have Roller Derby. They are fun to collect. 

We got our blind boxes at Target. 

Have you seen these yet? Which figures do you have?

Fresh Wave Natural Odor Removal

Fresh Wave 

I am very excited to be a Fresh Wave Brand Ambassador. They sent me a box of products to try out. We have used everything so far and love their products. Each item was used in different areas of the home. What I really like about this brand is that they use natural ingredients. No harsh chemicals are needed in the home.

We have 2 children and 1 more on the way, there are many odors that I'd like to get rid of. The garbage pail, the bathroom, and the stairway. We live in an apartment complex, so we smell other people's cooking. It is not always pleasant smelling. 

Dirty diapers in a garbage can is another gross smell we want to avoid. 

If you have pets these products would be perfect. 

Fresh Wave Candle

We placed this Odor removing candle in the bathroom. My husband was using incense in the bathroom and it was bothering my eyes. We started using this candle instead. It works well. I'd much rather use the candle. The smell is gentle on my nose too.

Fresh Wave Odor Removing Gel

We placed the Fresh Wave Odor Removing Gel in the corner of the bathroom. With 4 people using 1 bathroom, we need all the help we can get.

The gel is non-toxic. Open the lid and remove the seal. The gel will disappear after time. 

Fresh Wave Odor Removing Spray
The Fresh Wave odor removing spray is great!  We use this as our air freshener spray for almost every room. We spray it down the stair well. We spray it by the garbage pail and in the living room. 
I feel safe knowing it is made with natural ingredients. I also prefer this smell over any chemical spray. 

They also have vacuum beads, which we did not try. We do not have any carpet and mostly use a broom on the floors. 

The odor removing travel spray is perfect for you to throw in your car. When you have kids in the back seat and you allow them to eat food, there will be a surprise smell for you one day. Believe me, it has happened. 

Ingredients being used:

-natural extracts of lime, pine needle, aniseed, clove, and cedar wood

These products do not mask the smell. The odor molecules actually disappear. 

Do you have trouble with a particular smell in the home? I suggest you try some of these helpful odor removing products.

For The Love Of Warcraft

World of Warcraft

Before Warcraft the movie, I played World of Warcraft. My hubby and I played pre-kid days when it first came out. Now I don't have as much time to play but still have much love for the game. I'm a Blizzard Entertainment fan. We also have played Diablo III. I attempted Hearthstone but I'm not that good at it.

We saw the Warcraft movie and enjoyed it. It was really cool to see something you've been playing come to life. I thought the Orcs were well done. Durotan was my favorite character in the movie. 

Recently I won Warcraft toys from a Twitter Party. Jakks Pacific make a great line of Warcraft toys. They also have a ton of other toys for boys and girls. 

Jakks Pacific Warcraft Toys

The Axe of Durotan is solid and well made. I even get a little scared when my daughter starts swinging it around. She is pretty strong for a 4 year old. 

I was impressed with the action figures. They are good quality and have great detail. I think these toys are perfect for playing and collecting.

Have you ever played World of Warcraft? Have you seen the movie yet? Let me know what you thought in the comments below.

Shopkins Shoppies Sara Sushi

Sara Sushi

Moose Toys are the makers of Shopkins. My daughter absolutely adores these collectible toys. They are tiny and come in blind packs, regular sets of 5 and 12. The sets always come with a surprise Shopkin. 

Shopkin Shoppies are these cute dolls that come with Shopkins and accessories. This is our first Shoppie ever. Sara Sushi is super cute. Better yet, these toys are kawaii. Her little shoes are sushi too. 

Sara Sushi

Her hair is in cute buns. She comes with a sushi head band too. Shopkins are fun to collect for kids but I even find myself wanting to get more of them.

Her Kimono bow comes off. The shoes can come off too. She comes with a purse and small brush.
 We found Sara Sushi at Target. 

Overall, we were pleased with this doll addition to our Shopkins collection. I have a feeling we will be buying more of them.

Do your kids collect Shopkins? What are their favorites?

People's Choice Beef Jerky Review

People's Choice Beef Jerky

People's Choice Beef Jerky is a family run business in the United States making hand made jerky. I believe it is important to support family businesses and local businesses. My husband and I both enjoy beef jerky. He was excited about this box of jerky and likes to try these with a little bit of heat.

You can buy Jerky Boxes for yourself or as a gift. You can also buy the box as a subscription. The boxes come in different varieties too. If you like spicy, try the Some Like It Hot box.

We also got to try something called Machaca. Machaca is traditional shredded jerky. You can eat it on your own or put it in eggs. We decided to put it in our eggs. It gave the eggs a richer flavor and tasted good.

Original Beef Jerky

My husband took some to work with him to share with co workers. He said one of them enjoyed the Sweet Chili Habanero. I think jerky is great item to have at your desk. You can sit and snack through out the day, especially if you are too busy to grab lunch.

These would also be great to take with you if you go camping or hiking. Throw them in your back pack and you are ready to go with a flavorful treat.

You can listen to the story of People's Choice Beef Jerky.
Check out their YouTube video below.

Do you know a jerky lover? I suggest you get a box for them. Christmas will be here before we know it and the individual bags would be great as a stocking stuffer.
