 Affiliate Link Press Samples


With a little girl with long hair, I am always looking for ways to make hair time fun! Well, I sure found it with these adorable hair accessories and detangling brushes from Milk & Sass! Not only does my daughter love these items, but I love using them on myself, too! 

Introducing Milk & Sass:
This is such a fun line of candy-inspired products to make hair care easier! 

From Milk & Sass:
Milk+Sass® is on a mission to wrangle tangles, eliminate breakage, and maximize shine. A leading innovator in premium hair products, our candy-inspired detangling brushes and accessories are made for men, women, and children of all hair types and textures--from the curly-headed beauties to the straight-haired stunners. 

Our Hair:
I have shoulder length hair that is super prone to tangles. It is dry and damaged from highlighting. I am always looking for solutions for detangling and I also want hair tools that are super gentle on my hair. My daughter's hair is very long and fine. It is in awesome condition, but it is prone to tangles. My son's hair has a mind of its own (like him!). His hair is super thick and straight and his is cut in a longer toddler "surfer dude" style. 

I have really enjoyed exploring a few items from the Milk & Sass line! These items have not only made getting my kids' hair done easier, but I love using the Milk & Sass hair items on my self, too!

Top 10 Must-Follow Extreme Couponers on Pinterest

 Sponsored Post Affiliate Link Blogger Ambassador



If you're interested in couponing, there are a few places on the internet you probably frequent: Facebook, your email inbox, deal sites (which hopefully includes a visit to Dealspotr), and the blogs of extreme couponers. One of the most popular sites for finding extreme couponers is Pinterest.
In this visually-stimulating social network, extreme couponers are abundant. But only the great ones can post not only deals, but also ways to help others become more savings savvy. And it doesn't stop there. Life hacks, recipes, and more timely pins are shared as well, rounding out each influential Pinner's page into something that's truly helpful for the everyday person looking to get into couponing.

Now, we're bringing these must-follow extreme Pinterest couponers to you. We've polled our Dealspotr influencer network, and have come up with 10 of the most helpful and interesting Pinners to follow if you're interested in couponing.

The Krazy Koupon Lady

Followers: 286, 374
Pins: 13,368


The first must-follow Pinterest extreme couponer on our list is the Krazy Koupon Lady. With over 13,000 pins on boards ranging from frugal pet care, to DIY projects under $10, to her "10 Days to Become a Krazy Koupon Lady," she really runs the gamut from coupons to everyday living. She is a frequent poster, and knows her audience well. There's even a "Dream Checkout Boy" board for the ladies to admire! It's this combo of money saving expertise and fun personality that makes the Krazy Koupon Lady so well-liked as a Pinterest couponer.

Krazy Koupon Lady was nominated twice! Once by Catherine Brock of Budget Fashionista, who says that "Krazy Coupon Lady is the Internet expert on couponing. Her Pinterest board is extensive and well organized into savings categories." The other time was by Jenilee Dunson of Geeky Sweetie, who says "My favorite thing is the way her boards are arranged, with the coupon boards near the top of the page, and other things, like parenting and cooking and such further down the page."

SavingsMania - Diane Schmidt

Followers: 87,014
Pins: 47,701


Next up is Diane Schmidt of SavingsMania, who is dedicated "to sharing the best, most helpful money-saving pins" An extension of her deal website, her couponing Pinterest page offers timely boards - at this time she's showcasing "Mother's Day" and "Summer Fun" boards - along with deals, of course. She even has a page of things she's "tried" already, so you know what's worth making/doing. And for her followers that also have a web presence, she has a board with hacks for bloggers to monetize and optimize their blog.

Southern Savers - Jenny

Followers: 19,313
Pins: 3,353


Jenny, who runs the blog Southern Savers, is a Pinterest couponer focused on frugal living and DIY items. She pins not only coupon savings, but ways to save throughout your regular life, and adds her own personal comments to each thing she pins. The most unique feature of Southern Savers is her board of free things to do in specific cities - and not even just in the South!
Southern Savers was nominated by Kecia of From Mom's Desk. Her reasons? "She has a board dedicated to couponing tutorials. She pins lots of "free things to do in various cities" posts. She shares a lot of frugal content."

Couponing to be Debt Free

Followers: 8,640
Pins: 5,924


The Pinterest page of Couponing to be Debt Free can be described best through owner Julia's bio: "I teach you how to live a caviar lifestyle on a shoestring budget and get debt free once and for all!" Fully embracing the coupon lifestyle, this must-follow Pinterest extreme couponer heads up her page with solely savings-related boards. She then expands to the usual - DIY projects and recipes. But the savings wisdom that she translates from her blog to her Pinterest page is what keeps her followers coming back.

Chrysa Duran

Followers: 26,519
Pins: 42,449
Chrysa Duran, who is commonly known for her website Thrifty Jinxy, brings her frugal living expertise to Pinterest on her self-titled page. She's also a helping hand to other bloggers, featuring them in specific boards and promoting their posts to her followers. Aside from the deals, if you're hungry, she's got recipes, too. And a board simply titled "Avocado," with almost 3,500 pins. But it's her thrifty mindset that keeps Chrysa one of the most must-follow Pinterest extreme couponers. 

Chrysa Duran was nominated by Ellen LaFleche-Christian of Confessions of an Over-worked Mom, who says that Chrysa "shares lots of ways to save money - not only coupons." She also "writes well and is easy to relate to."

Couponaholic.net

Followers: 6,715
Pins: 36,341


Couponaholic.net is the next place to find deals on Pinterest. Their first board is "Shopping Trips," where they list each one of their shopping trips with images and a link back to the original article at Couponaholic.net. These feature major savings, and sometimes they'll even be making a profit by shopping and using coupons at places like Target and Walgreens. Couponaholic has less boards, and in turn is a more curated stop for coupons on Pinterest.
Couponaholic was nominated by Laura DeLuca of New Age Mama because "they post a lot of coupons, they have an active following, & their posts span several states."

Sarah Bowman

Followers: 6,805
Pins: 4,869


For Sarah Bowman, it's more about the quality of the things she pins, not the quantity. In her own words:
I highlight frugal tips, DIY projects that actually save people money as well as inexpensive yet amazing recipes focusing on the gluten free and healthy community. I do not believe in using coupons for unhealthy foods.
Pulling from the multiple blogs she owns, including Money Saving Queen, Sarah helps anyone looking for deals on Pinterest to not only save money, but live in a way that makes being frugal come second nature. Make sure to check out her "Saving Dollars" board for all the latest hacks.

Luv Saving Money

Followers: 6,089
Pins: 2,387
Luv Saving Money Pinner Angie is a good resource for more than just coupons. She also pins contests, giveaways, and sweepstakes, along with deals and freebies. She publishes a new holiday guide every year, with articles taken directly from her blog. Another thing that makes Angie a must-follow Pinterest couponer is her board full of product reviews, to help you know what to purchase and what to skip over in the store.

Kim Rowley @ ShoppingKim.com

Followers: 5,232
Pins: 3,387


Next up is Kim Rowley. She has a user-friendly Pinterest - and it's not just because all of her boards are labeled with the smiley face that is her blog's logo. There are deals, freebies, DIY projects, and other general interest categories all neatly organized into boards. She posts giveaways, which she says "couponers like to enter to win!" For all you beauty lovers, she also has a whole board dedicated to beauty on a budget.

Cuckoo For Coupons 

Followers: 14,753
Pins: 3,387


Last up on our list of must-follow extreme couponers on Pinterest is Deirdre from Cuckoo for Coupons. She offers guides to shopping at specific stores, as well as general guides to saving money everyday. Cuckoo for Coupon's other specialties include many food boards, and a whole "FREE" board for (you guessed it) freebies, such as the free eBooks with 5-star ratings available on Amazon. This is also where she'll post giveaways that coincide with her blog.

Cuckoo for Coupons was nominated by Erin Huffstetler of My Frugal Home. She says that "Deidre's deal info is up-to-the-minute; she knows all the tricks for saving at various stores, and she offers lots of great giveaways."

Live a Sun Safe Life: CVS Long Live Skin Campaign with Neutrogena and The American Cancer Society

 Sponsored Post Affiliate Link Press Sample
This post is sponsored by Neutrogena
#Sponsored #advicetomyyoungerself @Neutrogena


Live a Sun Safe Life! 
I am so excited to announce the 2017 CVS Long Live Skin Campaign with The American Cancer Society, Neutrogena, and Aveeno.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer type in the US. Yes, that is a scary statistic…but you can help change that! We can protect ourselves from skin cancer by using sun protection. Daily use of high SPF sunscreen can literally save your life! Neutrogena, a leading sun care brand and a leader amongst drugstore skincare, wants you to live a sun safe life! Being sun safe can start at a young age and can continue for a lifetime.

Sun safety and skin cancer prevention are of the utmost importance to me on a very personal level. Skin cancer runs in our family and my Dad has had countless basal cell carcinomas removed. I inherited his fair skin. So, I know that I am at risk. Also, I lost a dear friend to Melanoma. She was only 30 and spent her sunny summers at the lake. Because of my Dad and my friend, I get annual skin cancer screenings and I am religious about sunscreen application. Skin Cancer is preventable. We must protect ourselves with high SPF and practice overall sun safety by seeking shade, avoiding peak times in the sun, and wearing hats. The great news is that there are fantastic sunscreen options available right at your local CVS from Neutrogena and Aveeno. 

If I could give advice to my younger self, I would encourage myself to start serious sun protection at an early age! I cringe when I think back at some of my younger days laying out in the sun before I knew better. While I can't go back and actually talk to my younger self, I can take action now. I can protect myself and my family with high SPF sunscreens. My children have my fair skin. So, I am vigilant with sunscreen application for them at all times. I am building sun safety habits with them every day! Sunscreen application is simply part of our daily routine before going outside. You can take action, too! You can start with good sun safe habits at a young age and you can continue them for a lifetime! 

CVS Long Live Skin Campaign:
So, let me give you the details about the 2017 CVS Long Live Skin Campaign. I am so excited about this event!

CVS in partnership with Johnson & Johnson's Neutrogena and the American Cancer Society is working hard to educate consumers on sun safety and sun care. CVS’s “Long Live Skin” campaign is an initiative meant to increase awareness around skin health.

As part of the Long Live Skin Campaign, CVS is removing all sun care products with SPF lower than 15 from its shelves, and replacing them with 30 new SPF+/broad spectrum products that either meet or exceed FDA standards. This way, all of the SPF skincare available at CVS will provide customers with optimum sun protection!

Your Purchase of Neutrogena or Aveeno can benefit the American Cancer Society!
For the dates 6/18-6/24, your Purchase of Neutrogena or Aveeno from CVS can benefit the American Cancer Society! Please purchase any Neutrogena or Aveeno product with SPF and $1 will be donated to the American Cancer Society to help prevent skin cancer up to $100,000.

My Newest Neutrogena SPFs:
Need some inspiration for your Neutrogena CVS purchases? I would love to share some of my newest additions to my SPF arsenal from Neutrogena! Neutrogena has so many options available for the whole family. We all have different skin types and skincare needs in my family. It is nice to have so many options available that work for us all.


Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 60+:
This sunscreen is a fantastic option for people with sensitive skin or eczema! While I do not have eczema, my skin does lean towards sensitive and there are certainly times when I want to use the most gentle sunscreen possible. This sunscreen is formulated with naturally-sourced physical sunscreens: titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. These two sunscreen ingredients always work well with my skin and I can trust the high physical protection that they provide without irritation.


Neutrogena Pure & Free®:
I have a toddler with Eczema. So, I am super excited about my recent discovery of the Neutrogena Pure & Free® line of SPF products. I recently added Pure & Free® Baby Faces Ultra Gentle Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45+, Pure & Free® Baby Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 50, and Pure & Free® Baby Sunscreen Stick Broad Spectrum SPF 60 to my toddler's skincare protection routine. His skin is so sensitive and chemical sunscreens and sunscreens that are not formulated for a toddler's sensitive baby skin can cause terrible eczema flare ups. I love that I can apply these Pure & Free® products to his skin without fearing flare ups and discomfort for him!


Neutrogena Sheer Zinc™:
As much as I love the awesome sun protection of Zinc, I don't always love the white cast and heavier feel of products containing zinc. That is why I love this line from Neutrogena! It contains Zinc but has a lightweight feel and goes on sheer without that white cast. Neutrogena Sheer Zinc™ sunscreens contain mineral sunscreen with Purescreen®  Neutrogena's naturally-sourced 100% zinc oxide technology. Right now I am loving both the Sheer Zinc™ Face Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 50 and the Sheer Zinc™ Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30.


Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30:
Did you know that you can get SPF protection in your anti-aging products! Yes, you can do both at the same time: protect and prevent while also fighting the signs of aging. I am a huge fan of the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair® line and love that I can get a daily dose of Retinol while also getting some facial sun protection with this product.

Be sure to stop by CVS to participate in their Long Live Skin event and to browse the awesome selection of SPFs. Your Neutrogena or Aveeno purchase can help the American Cancer Society.

Thanks so much for reading and remember to please be sun safe! You can start now and start a habit that will last a lifetime. :)

Natural Bath and Body Products from Nubian Heritage

Affiliate Link Press Sample


Are you into natural products? I personally love exploring natural product lines...especially when it comes to bath and body care products. Your skin is your body's largest organ. With so much surface area to absorb product, it makes sense treat your skin right, when you can, with natural products. No, I do not use 100% natural products across the board all the time. However, if I had two similar products side-by-side that worked similarly and one was natural and one was not, there is no question I would choose to use the natural product over one with chemicals and preservatives. I am all about adding natural when you can. Even just a little bit helps to decrease your overall chemical exposure. 

I am super excited about a natural products line that I have been exploring lately: Nubian Heritage. I am in the process of trying out both bath and body items from this line as well as facial skincare products (that review coming soon, too!). So, lets start off by talking a little bit about this interesting brand and then I will dive into my review!

About Nubian Heritage (from Nubian Heritage):
Nubian Heritage got its start 25 years ago on the streets of Harlem. Just out of college, former roommates, Richelieu Dennis and Nyema Tubman set out to produce luxurious natural products from traditional African recipes with fair trade and organic ingredients and bring them to the community. They were inspired by the legacy of ancient Nubia, which was once a center of cultural trade – a place where goods, ideas, and customs from across Africa, Asia, the Mediterranean and the Middle East were exchanged and spread across the world. The street vendors brought together global healing practices, cultural wisdom and indigenous ingredients to create modern wellness solutions that were highly sought after.

Today, the brand offers hundreds of culturally authentic natural products that are free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, paraffin, gluten, propylene glycol, DEA, silicones, mineral oil, petroleum, synthetic fragrance and artificial color, and never tested on animals.

So, now that you know a little bit more about Nubian Heritage, lets talk about the awesome product that I tried out! To hear about a variety of bath and body products from Nubian Heritage, please click "read more" below!
