Haircut Coupon-a-Thon!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Regis Family of Brands for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


Back to school.  Bring on the deals.  The great sales!  With all of that going on these days, it's the perfect time of year to reinvent your style!  Or if you're like me, just to stock up on what helps makes you, you!  New backpacks, new clothes, new shoes, and don't forget about your hair!  I'm growing my hair out.  It's almost to my tailbone, so this isn't really a deal for me, but I've got two kids who this is perfect for!  My oldest has decided to grow her bangs out this Summer, so she could really use a good cut and style.  My youngest got her hair cut short when it but her bangs need a little help right now.  I normally cut  them myself, but every once in awhile I just need a professional to get them straight.

Lucky for my deal-loving self, right now participating salons are teaming up for a Haircut Coupon-a-thon

Simply check out the Widget, select your preferred salon and print your coupon good for a $7.99-$9.99 haircut!  Not just for kids, it's valid for adults too!  Coupons are good until September 30th, 2012 so you have plenty of time to schedule your appointment (or simply walk in if that's more your style!  No appointments needed!) and decide what you want to have done to your hair. 

Participating salons include Best Cuts, BoRics, Cool Cuts 4 Kids (select salons only), Famous Hair Fiesta Salons, First Choice Haircutters (U.S. participating salons only), Head Start Salons, HairMasters, Holiday Hair, Island Haircutting Co, MasterCuts, Saturday's, SmartStyle (located inside Walmart Supercenters), Style America, TGF Hair Salon.  That is fifteen full service salon brands and over 4500 locations throughout the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico that are participating. 
If you're on a mobile device, you can still use the widget coupon!  Simply touch and hold to save the coupon image, and then show the coupon to your stylist.  If you happen to have a problem with printing your coupon, be sure to send an email to with the salon brand you'd like to visit and they will send you a coupon.

Be Prepared for Back to School

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

You know what I loved about school?  Projects.  I love a good project.  The planning.  The creativity.  Probably partly why I love back to school shopping so much.  I get to look at all the fun school supplies.  I stock up on them too, when they're on sale, because I can always think of some crafty use for them here at home. 


AstroBrights Paper is available in 23 brilliant colors, so you're sure to find just the right color for your project.  They are for use at home, school, and at the office...and are a sure fire way to get noticed.  I can think of so many great uses for these brightly colored papers!  Banners, invitations, brochures, art projects.  They're just so fun!   My kids love to make books, and we usually just use basic white printer paper.  I bet they would LOVE to be able to pick the perfect color of AstroBrights paper to use as the cover to their books. 


I love when companies give back to the communities that support them.  This year you can support your local elementary school with the "Give a Brighter Year" sweepstakes, thanks to AstroBrights.  If you enter, you will have the chance to win a cash prize and $30,000 worth of school supplies for the school you choose!


You can also enter the "Make Something AstroBright" challenge!  Show off your creativity and what you can do with the help of AstroBrights for a chance to win some of the brilliantly colored AstroBrights paper they are famous for, as well as other great prizes!  They would love to see your pictures and videos, and love posts on Pinterest and Twitter with the hashtag #goastrobrights. 


If you need some ideas for what to do with AstroBrights paper, you might check out the community of fans of Astrobrights on Facebook.  As I mentioned above, they are also on Twitter (use hashtag #goastrobrights) and Pinterest.  They would LOVE to hear from you!

Did Someone Say Shoes?!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


It is no secret that I love to shop! I'm all for a good deal. I kind of like the "Back to School" shopping time of the year. At this point, I'm done with hot weather, even though we'll have it for awhile yet, but it gives me a glimmer of Fall, and the cooler weather to come. It's a great time to stock up on office supplies and crayons and such for the kids too.

Other than school supplies, I've purchased a few items of clothing already this year for the Back to School seaon. I pick things up on clearance and put them away all the time, but you know part of back to school shopping is the fun of picking up some new outfits. I'm still not done, I need to find a good deal on some jeans for the girls, and some shoes. Is it just me or do they go through shoes quick at this age?! Seriously.

I just found out that Famous Footwear has a new coupon for 15% off (or 20% off if you're a Rewards member, or sign up to be one! Um, yes please!)...and that is not all! They're also having a BOGO (buy one get one half off) sale! Awesome! Maybe I'll even spring for a pair of shoes for myself (at least mine last more than a couple months before I grow out of them, haha!)

Be sure to print the BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon! It's valid in stores only between 8/2 and 8/18!

While you're there, if you're not already part of the Rewards Program, you'll want to sign up to make that coupon worth 20%! The Rewards Program is FREE and as a member you earn 1 point for every $1 you spend. Points accumulate and you can earn certificates of up to $100 per year! As a member you'll recieve offers for special discounts as well, so be sure to ask about it and sign up!
