Winc-- Not Your Traditional Monthly Wine Club!


Winc is not your traditional wine club: they are a direct-distribution global wine company that personalizes the entire wine experience - They are perfecting how wine is made, distributed, perceived and purchased via their Palate Profile quiz that recommends wine based on your unique tastes. It takes the hassle and guesswork out of picking a bottle from your local liquor store and delivers the perfect bottle directly to your doorstep. They do all this as part of our quest to improve the experience for consumers, create a platform for artisanal winemaking, and build a grape-to-glass supply chain that's sustainable for the planet. No more intimidating language and steep price points, and more joy in the act of sharing a bottle!


My readers recieve $22 Off their first month of Winc Wine!! Winc offers 4 personalized wines each month. Bottles start at $13 each. www.trywinc.com/usfamilyguide

Personalize Your Halloween With Colortime!

Happy October, y'all! Z and I celebrated the start of the season by getting our house ready for Halloween! Coincidentally, the day we were decorating, we received the best themed package we could! We were sent a really cute Halloween Glow-in-the-Dark Tote Bag and 3 Fabric Markers from Colortime Crafts! My little artist was so excited when this arrived in the mail! She ripped open the package right by the front door and made me take pictures right then and there so she could get to work on her new trick-or-treat bag asap! 




I was really impressed with the quality of the bag and especially the markers! The markers are perfect for little kids-- large and easy to hold, and the coloring point is small enough for the smaller coloring areas but large enough to color a big area quickly. It was easy to use and fun to decorate according to Z! By far, her favorite part of the bag is that it glows-in-the-dark! She's been talking non-stop about how everyone will be able to see it when it gets darks on Halloween! I was pleasantly surprised by size of the bag-- it's the perfect size for trick-or-treating and I have no doubt that she will be able to get quite a few year's worth of use out of it!


A little bit about this company: Colortime is based in Merrick, NY and has provided products to more than 2 million children and adults throughout the country! Colortime also sells pillowcases, shirts, backpacks, and more! All of their products can be colored by your little artists.!They have such a huge selection and would be perfect for a birthday party, scout group, or school activity!

Recipe: Healthy Ginger-Cantaloupe Popsicles!


It's been a hot and muggy couple of weeks here in Columbus so any recipe that can help keep us cool is a win in my book! This DIY ginger cantaloupe popsicle recipe from Terra's Kitchen is the delicious, refreshing treat that we all need in our lives. It's a healthy, fruit-filled snack that is a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth – and the best part is they are completely guilt-free!  

Ingredients:

3 slices of fresh ginger
1/4 cup sugar
1 ripe cantaloupe
Sliced strawberries (optional)
Popsicle forms and popsicle sticks

Directions:

1. In a small sauce pan, add the sugar and 1/2 cup water over medium heat. Cook just until the sugar has melted. Remove from heat and drop in ginger. Set aside until cooled. (Remove ginger when ready to use!)
2. Slice cantaloupe in half and scoop out seeds. Spoon cantaloupe flesh into a blender. Blend until smooth.
3. Add just enough of the cooled ginger syrup to sweeten as desired. Save the remaining syrup for another use.
4. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight. For a variation, push a few sliced strawberries down into the popsicle molds before freezing.

Frugal Friday: Save Money with Groupon Coupons!


I start my Christmas shopping in July so that I can keep an eye out for the best sales and deals throughout the remainder of the year. I do the majority of my shopping online and not only do I keep an eye on sales but coupons too. In fact, one of my biggest money saving tips for online shopping is to ALWAYS looks for a coupon code and deals when shopping online. 

Groupon Coupons is the first place I check for coupons and promo codes. Groupon is known for being the place to save money on local activities, services, and goods, but did you know that they have over 80,000 FREE coupons from more than 12,000 stores? Some of my favorite stores they have coupons and deals for are Amazon, Target, Walmart, Macy'sHome Depot, and more! 

Target is one of my favorite stores to shop at and right now, Groupon Coupons has 71 coupons available to use at Target.com! Target always has great sales going on and their clearance section is hard to beat but Groupon Coupons is my trick to saving even more money there!

Groupon Coupons has coupons for seriously every store you can imagine and with the amount of coupons they have, make sure you check the site before purchasing anything online!

Heath Bar Cake Recipe

This is a family favorite of ours and probably one of the best (and easiest) cake recipes of all time. I mean it, this is the most amazing and rich cake I know how to make. This past weekend I made it for my mother-in-law's birthday (she requests this specific cake every year) so I thought I would take some pictures and share the recipe with all of you! Enjoy! :)



Ingredients:

  • 1 (18 ounce) box German chocolate cake mix (really any chocolate cake recipe will work)
  • 1 cup caramel ice cream topping (I dont really measure this, the more the better in my opinion!)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (12 ounce) container whipped topping
  • 3-4 Heath candy bars, chopped

Directions:

  • Bake cake mix according to package directions, using a 9 x 13 x 2-inch pan.
  • While still hot, punch holes in top of cake with a fork.
  • Pour sweetened condensed milk and caramel topping over hot cake.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve
  • When ready to serve (make sure cake is completely cool)  and spread whipped topping on top.
  • Finish up by sprinkling chopped Heath bars over all the top.
