Discover Great Deals and Save Money with Groupon

**This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.**

It was way back 2013 when I had my very computer and internet connection at home. Since then I discovered many things about the web. I started joining online promo/contest and availing free items. But other than that I also found websites that sell items at a low price and discount coupons too. I never had any ideas that there was such kind of website. I never imagined that I could save a lot while shopping for good quality items plus the hassle-free shipping of the items at my doorstep. 

Groupon is only one of those sites which offer tons of discount coupons for different kind of merchants. But I am sticking to this site because I could save money in many ways and enjoy shopping at the same time.

Essential Home Design Tips For The Work At Home Mom


Working at home is a practical option for parents. It allows you to keep an eye on your kids and earn at the same time. Obviously, some boundaries have to be established, and it takes a little planning. However, flexible working contracts make this easier than ever before to set up.

When you’re earning around the kids, it is still important to maintain a split between work and home life. To do this, creating a practical work environment is necessary.

How To Make Your Home The Most Attractive House On The Block

When it comes to selling your home, curb appeal is vital. Even if you’re not selling, itis good to return to a beautiful looking home at the end of a busy day. Is the exterior of your home looking a little tired or uninspiring? If so, here are some handy hints to make your home the most attractive house on the block.

Get your gardening gloves on
If you’re lucky enough to have a front garden, get the most out of it. Get those gardening gloves on and do some weeding and planting. Mow the lawn and add some color and interest. Scatter planters around, and give the fence a coat of paint. Let the garden set the tone for the rest of the house. If you’ve gone for shabby chic or country style interiors, why not fill flower beds with wildflowers? If you’ve got a modern minimalist home, make gravel areas more exciting with a water feature or potted olive trees.

10 Appliances That Can Make All The Difference To Your Kitchen

Surprise Eggs is now available to IOS and ANDROID devices!

I grew up watching Anime and cartoons on TV.  But now that I am a parent, there's already smartphone or smart tv where you could connect to wifi and watch different kinds of videos, especially on Youtube. My daughter who is currently four years old loves to look at the unboxing videos of surprise eggs on youtube. It is one of the most popular videos among kids, and I am telling you she could watch it all day!  But did you know that they can now unbox surprise eggs through an Android/IOS app? Yes, you are reading it right! The game is called SURPRISE EGGS WORLD created by Biscuit Moon. It has four types of animals (farm, wild, pets, and dinosaurs) with seven kinds of animals in each category. There's a total of 35 kinds of animals to play with. 





PROS:
*CLEAR SOUND: clear and soothing voice-overs
*NO ADS: no pop-up ads, No third-party advertising
*High GRAPHICS: cute and colorful hand drawn graphics
*KID-FRIENDLY NAVIGATION
*EDUCATIONAL: kids can learn English language basics about animals (names and description of each animal)

CONS:
*a bit pricey. You'll need to pay 2.99$ or 140Php to open the rest of the eggs
*too easy. No high scores, time-based puzzles, rules, or stress

VERDICT:
I would rate it 4/5 because I feel that there's still more that needs to be added. More features mean more fun for the kids. The developer could also make it challenging to the children so that it won't be boring. I think children fell in love with unboxing videos of surprise eggs is because they get to see different kinds of toys in every egg, so maybe the developer/s could also add other characters aside from animals. Overall, I can say that this could be a "new thing" for kids age 2 to 4.  It can distract your child, so you could leave them while you take a nap. You don't have to worry because the content is suitable for the young ones. They could explore, play and have fun without your assistance. 

Check out the video below and see how it works:

Let your child experience the fun. Surprise Eggs World is now available on iOS and Android, so download it now and try it for free!

========================================================================
About Biscuit Moon
Biscuit Moon is a group of game developers, long-time friends, but most of all fathers. As such, we wanted to use our experience to create a game where our children are able to play with what they love most (surprise eggs!) without the risk of encountering aggressive ads, deceptive in-app purchases, or content that’s not appropriate for them. We also wanted to create an app that our children can enjoy without our assistance so we have a few free minutes to take care of some everyday tasks: the ones that need to be done but that we can’t get to while we’re absorbed in the care of our kids. Every parent knows them all too well. And that’s how Surprise Eggs World came to life.

Top Tips To Add Style To Your Home


We all see the homes in glossy magazines and on tv programmes that seem to exude style and class. They look so beautiful and full of personality, and it's something we often try to replicate in our homes. Here are some top tips for making your home a bit more stylish and photo shoot ready!

Feature Point
Every room should have a feature as a focal point. In the living room, dress your fireplace or mantelpiece to give a main feature in the room. Coffee tables, rugs, and feature lights also work well in dining rooms and kitchens. Having a dramatic piece gives the room a bit of character and sets the theme.

How A Change Of Scenery After a Difficult Period Can Turn Things Around

It is sad but true that bad things happen in our lives that we cannot control. These things can cause us to have difficult periods in our lives. In order to get through the periods, we often need help and support from professionals and loved ones. We also need our own sense of motivation and determination.

But what about afterward? Once you are through the worst of it, support may dry up slowly. The people who were previously helping you will move on to other issues, even if you’re not quite ready for that.

However, even when the support lessens, there are still others way you can help yourself. One of these is a change of scenery. This is a broad term, but can be put into practice in a number of ways. It could be something as simple as moving your furniture around in your bedroom. It could be checking into a form of rehab, for some 24-hour support. It could even be going on a short holiday, either alone or with friends, to get some new perspective.
Let’s look in closer detail at all three of these options.
