Groupon Beauty and Spa Deal: Take 20% off with Promo Code (Exp. 4/18)

Groupon Spa

After the last few crazy hectic weeks I’ve had, I am SO tempted to pamper myself and get one of these Groupon Beauty and Spa Deals for myself! Through tomorrow you can get a local Beauty and Spa deal and take 20% OFF when you use code SPA20 at checkout. I am thinking that this would also be a good occasion to get a Beauty or Spa deal for your Mom for Mother’s Day. There are so many options for massages, mani-pedis, haircuts and more! And redeeming these deals is super easy. Just print out your voucher once you purchase, call to make a reservation and present the certificate once you go in for the deal. It’s that simple!

LED Lights for Bicycles only $4.99

LED Lights

If you go out on your bicycle at night or if your kids sometimes stay out after dark and return at dusk, then these LED lights for your bicycle would be something to own. These lights will make your bicycle more visible to everyone and thus help avoid any potential accident on the street. You can get these LED Lights for only $4.99 a pair  ($30 value) when you buy them through this  Groupon deal.

These bright lights for your bicycle come in several colors. They are easy to install, just screw  them into the  tire valves to make wheels glow. Having these LED’s will help improve visibility and safety during dusk or nighttime rides. I know that I have had a few surprises when driving and a bike suddenly appears seemingly out of nowhere. I would love if ALL bikes had these lights since the headlights on some bikes just aren’t visible enough.

Make Bath Time Fun with these Crayola Bath Dropz!

Crayola Bath Dropz

Oh my goodness! I hadn’t even thought of these bath drops until I saw this listing on Groupon. Seeing this item brings back so many great memories  because I used them in my children’s bath when they were toddlers. I haven’t seen them for sale in other stores so I am not sure if they are widely available, but these Crayola Color Bath Dropz and Color Changing Scrubbies are on sale for only $9.99 plus shipping.  I remember my kids looking forward to bath time because they love the excitement of coloring the water. We used them about 1-2 times x week and it was always a highlight of the evening!

  • Fizzing water color tablets
  • 60 tablets
  • Mix and match tints to create vibrant hues
  • Fragrance-free
  • Quick-dissolving
  • Includes two soft mesh Scrubby sponges
  • Use hot water to change sponge color, cold water to change it back



Portable Smartphone Battery only $10 plus Shipping

Cell phone battery pack

Don’t you hate it when your smartphone runs out of battery? And it always seems to happen at the worst time! I always have a car charger in the car, but sometimes my cell phone dies when I’m on a walk, out shopping or somewhere where it’s not practical to charge it. These portable cell phone batteries sound like a great idea for anyone who has ever experienced with this problem. You can buy them from Living Social for only $10 each (plus shipping).

I bought a similar one last year and gave it to my daughter to take with her when she is going to be out of the house all day. It has really helped with the “I would have called you but my cell phone died” excuse! And it has also come in handy for me, especially when I travel. These batteries are small and portable and can really get you out of a pinch!


Memory Foam Bath Mat only $11.99 Shipped

Memory Foam mat

I own a couple of memory foam bath mats and I love them. It feels so wonderful to step out of the shower an on to these plush and comfy mats. But the mats I own are not shaggy, they are made of a microfiber type fabric. I wonder how it would feel to step onto a plush and shaggy mat like this Angola Fleece 17×24 Shag Top Memory Foam Bath Mat from Tanga? It is today’s Deal of the Day and is on sale for only $11.99 which includes FREE shipping! This mat comes in a variety of colors so it seems like it would be easy to match the color scheme of most bathrooms.

It might seem like an unusual gift, but I am thinking Mother’s day perhaps? I personally like practical gifts and would be thrilled with something like this. And maybe a bouquet of flowers or chocolates on the side wouldn’t hurt ;)

Fashion Emergency Solutions! Prices Start at $5.99

Fashion Emergency

If you have ever had a wardrobe malfunction before, you will appreciate this Fashion Emergency sale at Zulily. They have a huge selection of all kinds of neat accessories like bra extenders, pasties, plunge bras and SO much more! I wasn’t even aware that many of these products even existed until today.  Prices are deeply discounted and start at only $5.99. At Zulily you only pay for shipping for the the first item you buy, and all the other items on the same order ship for FREE!

I bet you we all have a blouse we love but don’t wear it because the straps keep falling or the fabric just won’t stay where it’s supposed to! The one solution I have found for this potential mishap is double sided sticky tape for fabrics. If you have ever tried it, you know what a lifesaver it can be. You can get this Fashion sticky tape during this sale for only $8.99 (reg.$24). Another favorite item of mine are the Racerback Bra Clips ($8.99 on sale, reg. $18). I know my teen daughter doesn’t mind having the straps of her bra show (it actually seems to be a fashion statement with the teenagers nowadays!). But I like to have mine nicely concealed, and these clips help convert  my favorite traditional bra into one that can be used with most of my sport tops!

The list of useful items and creative solutions to all your Fashion Emergencies is too long to list here. But I am sure you will find a bunch of neat accessories you have been looking for as well as others you didn’t even know you wanted :)

Apple Accessories Starting at only $4.99

Apple accesories

If your household is anything like mine, you probably own one or more Apple products! And if your household is anything like mine, you are probably needing a new charger or headsets. These items tend to get misplaced  (my son) or left behind in hotels or airplanes (me) all the time. Take a look at this Apple Accessory Sale that is going on at Tanga this weekend. You will find everything from Otterbox phone cases to chargers, screen protectors and even phones! The inventory seems to be going quickly because these items are so deeply discounted. Shipping for most items is only $4.99, and some of them actually ship for free.

Ultimate Date Night ~ 2 movie tickets, $100 Restaurant credit and a 8 x10 Photo Canvas for $32.50

Groupon movie deal

Take a look at this Ultimate Date Night deal from Groupon! For only $32.50 you will be getting e-vouchers for 2 movie tickets, a $100 gift certificate from and an 8×10 Photo Canvas.  When you buy the deal, you will receive three separate PINs: one for the two e-movie cash tickets, one for the dining credit, and one for the photo canvas. PINs will be received within 7 business days of redeeming on, along with further redemption instructions. Please read the fine print to see a list of all the participating movie theaters and restaurants.

I think the movie and food  more than pays for itself with this deal. I’m not sure how the Photo canvas fits in with all this….  Maybe if your night out is memorable and you take a few pictures, you might want to end up putting one on canvas? I don’t know.  Personally  I would probably save the picture deal for a family photo, but that’s just me :)

This hammock available today only from TANGA for $9.99 plus $4.99 shipping.

This Brazilian-style hammock is made from 100% recycled cotton fiber. It can be left outside as it will withstand most type of weather. It is colorful and large enough to accommodate most body types. I think this hammock would make a great and original Mother or Father’s Day present, don’t you think?
