Have Last Minute Back to School Shopping to do? Save time and Money with Jet!

Date Wed, August 24 2016

I’m not sure about you guys, but I do have a bad habit of leaving things to the last minute. It’s not on purpose. I’m just not always aware of the date or time. That’s why I am paying my credit card bill with minutes to spare while typing this post. Oops!

If I were a parent, I would probably fall behind when it comes to back-to-school shopping, at least, if I had to do it all in person! That’s why I love using any service that makes it easier and more convenient for me to shop right from home. A while back, I discovered Jet. And I was excited about it because they allowed me to buy something I really wanted at the cheapest price available online. I swear I wrote about them then, but I guess I didn’t.

I wasn’t an affiliate with them then, but I’ve become one since. This means that I will make a small commission should you buy anything after clicking links. But I was already excited to find this retailer, so it’s a really natural fit.

One thing that makes Jet even better than those prices and coupons (right now you can save 15% on your first three orders with coupon TRIPLE15; plus, get free shipping on orders over $35!), might be the 2-day shipping.

So if school starts next week or has even started, and there’s a few things left to check off your to-buy list, you might wanna head over to Jet. In fact, they already have a back-to-school section where you can check out supplies like pens and notebooks, school clothes and even snacks.

A number of these things even come with 2-day delivery, which is awesome if you’re a procrastinator like me.

I thought I might post a list of the few things that would be useful for this time of year, whether you or your little ones are headed back to the halls of school, many of which you can get in just 2 days from Jet!

$150 Target Gift Card Giveaway

Date Wed, August 10 2016


target gift card giveaway

Dropprice is an innovative startup that rewards moms for being social. Essentially, they empower moms to drop prices of kids & baby products with a click. The price continues dropping as more moms click “Drop the price”. Every week new promotions are launched and moms drop prices by sharing them on social media. See the chart below to understand the power moms have and how important it is to share with other moms.

Target Gift Card

In today’s promotion for the Children Inspire Design Cards, it started out at $22.00 and for each mom that clicks, the price drops a bit. The price will continue to drop for each mom that participates.

Target Gift Card

You can choose to share on social media to get more moms to click “Drop the price”, or you can “Buy Now” at the current price. Keep in mind that when the price gets low, they usually sell out and you will no longer have the chance to buy that item. As an added bonus every item on Dropprice ships for free!

Do you want to give it a try? This is such a fun and exciting way for moms to save lots of money by collaborating with each other. If you would like to have a chance to win a $150 Target gift card, you can experience dropping the price by following the instructions below.

Anxiety and Emotions Don’t Have to Rule Your Life

Date Thu, August 4 2016

Although this post isn’t the typical content that I post on Reviews by Cole, it’s something I know well as someone who has suffered from anxiety. I hope this can help someone.

There’s no doubt, at some point, everybody suffers bouts of insecurity, anxiety or even downright depression; however, the world of psychiatry and the various thoughts on these issues has gone through some ups and downs over the years. In fact, even some approaches to these subjects have gone through their own changes in the realm of professional psychiatry; however, one thing that seems to stand firm is that there are many people who are looking for that missing piece. They’re looking for a way to feel better about themselves and their situation in life and sometimes it’s just a matter of understanding why these feelings occur and development new ways of looking at the world that can help us change our mood.

Different Ways of Handling the World Around Us

Some psychiatrists, such as Barbara Deshong at MysteryShrink, provide important information we can use in our everyday lives in order to change the way we feel. For example, when something unexpected happens, you can either act on an emotional level or the “Emotional Guidance System” or you can use the “Thinking Guidance System.” These two systems are available to every person to help guide them in making decisions. The emotional guidance system is the one that kicks in immediately when one is faced with a stressful situation. This might mean lashing out in anger, procrastinating or even overeating. It is the part that takes over before one has an opportunity to think things through.
On the other hand, when the thinking guidance system is engaged, you are able to use a rational thought process to think through the anxiety and find the best course of action, rather than letting your emotions rule your behavior. Of course, in order for one to use the thinking guidance system, it’s necessary to be able to control the emotional guidance system long enough to allow the process of thinking through the situation and evaluating consequences take over. Anxiety is a normal part of life, but being able to think through alternative ways of dealing with stress can help create a more peaceful and pleasant situation.
You have a choice in how you direct your life and in the types of decisions you make regarding your reaction to stressful events. Reacting on an emotional level is often fraught with extra anxiety, but using a thinking guidance system can bring about positive changes. With a little effort, you can make a dramatic difference in your mood and in your life.

Update Your Fall Wardrobe with Stella & Dot

Date Tue, August 2 2016

Although it’s sunny and warm during what seems to be one of the longest summers in recent history, I know the season won’t last forever. It will soon be fall, and that means all sorts of things: back to school, the changing of the leaves and fall fashion lines, to name a few. I’m excited for more moderate temperatures, so I can take long walks without sweating off my makeup.

I’m also waiting patiently to see what colors will be and what new styles will hang from the racks at my favorite stores. I’ve already gotten the heads up on some stores, including Stell & Dot. As an affiliate, I often learn a bit more about upcoming styles before consumers do. Lucky me!

This fall, Stella & Dot is all about the neutrals and whites, hues that are timeless and pair perfectly with whatever outfit you’re wearing no matter the season! You can get an idea of these styles from the image below. I personally love #9, but y’all know me!

If you want to learn more about Stella & Dot’s new products, you can host a Trunk Show. What’s that? It’s like a sales party for jewelry and other accessories available from the company. As a host, you’ll earn some cool swag, and your friends might not know about Stella & Dot yet! This month’s bonus is
