Luvs Diapers are Now Available at Even Lower Prices #MoretoLuv

This review was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management, Luvs. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

 

When the first child arrivluvspostes, of course you want the very best of everything – the finest nursery, the latest stroller, the best clothes, the best toys, the best activity mat.

You make homemade food in the special baby food processor and even the first birthday party is a big production.

 

When the first child arrives, things can get expensive really fast. Nothing wrong with that, but, things change.

When you’re a second time parent, you don’t trust something just because it costs more, you trust that it works. You relax and realize that a lot of parenting is intuitive and you aren’t going to screw things up!

About The Luvs Mom:
She is confident. She trusts her instincts and doesn’t sway in the face of external pressures to be a perfect mom. She makes no apologies.
She’s the wing mom, savvy and unfiltered.
She has a great sense of humor and isn’t afraid to laugh at herself. She knows she’ll make mistakes and is now more apt to laugh than cry.
She’s always honest and authentic. She’s not ashamed to admit that sometimes it’s not always pretty, but she’s figured out what works for her and her baby – and she’s not afraid to admit it.
She exists in a no judgement zone. With time and experience, she’s figured out that there’s no such thing as perfect parenting. Loving her kids and getting by in a way that works for her is all that matters.
And remember…

9 times out of 10 kids get their awesomeness from their mother.

BOOK TWO IN THE SOUND OF SILENCE SERIES IS NOW AVAILABLE!!!

 

JAILBIRD

by

TAYLOR DEAN

 

 

I’m really enjoying Jailbird which is Book 2 in the Sound of Silence Series and you can read it free with Kindle Unlimited. How cool is that?

Check it out:

My hometown decided to rename me Jailbird.

Every day I silently scream out, “My name is Mia Faraday!” My time in jail does not define me. I am so much more than one heated mistake.

And yet, my slip-up weighs on me. There’s so much more to the story than anyone realizes. I must face Stony, my ex, and confess everything.

I don’t want to. I’d rather have five teeth pulled. While I’m awake. Without anesthesia.

But this is something I have to do, something I need to do. Not just for Stony. I need to do it for me. Especially for me. I can’t move forward with my life until I gain closure from the past.

When I meet Grayson Elliott, I am easily pulled into his orbit and it’s exactly where I’d love to stay. He makes me laugh and not take life so seriously. He makes me want to live again.

But I don’t love me right now, and that healing needs to come first. I’m not relationship-ready or marriage material. My mind is focused on redemption. I want it. I need it.

Besides, when Grayson hears about my colorful past, I’m sure he’ll be gone before I have time to utter the word goodbye.

After all, who could ever love a jailbird?

 

 

The Sound of Silence Series is a three book series.

Book One: Stone Silence, Spencer’s Story

Book Two: Jailbird, Mia’s Story

Book Three: Hothouse Flower, Shay’s Story

 

Each book has a happy ending and there are no cliffhangers.

They are not standalones and should be read in order.

 

Did you miss Book One, STONE SILENCE?

Grab it on AMAZON

Great big beautiful love.

Does it really exist?

Everyone tells me it does. They say, “Spencer Elliott, don’t worry, you’ll find it one day. You just have to find the right man and when you do, it will surprise the heck out of you.”

I’m still waiting for that heck of a surprise to hit. It has proven to be elusive thus far. I’m pretty sure the entire world is lying about love and the joke is on me.

I know I want a man in my heart and in my life. Unfortunately, most men immediately push my OFF button and I lose interest quickly.

Feeling pressure to prove I’m trying to find my soulmate, I finally give in and agree to a date. Huge mistake. Afterward I find myself abandoned in the middle of nowhere, in desperate need of help.

That’s when I meet Stony by chance.

He’s a silent and unsmiling man who intrigues me with his ability to keep going after life has knocked him down. Suddenly the abstract notion of love becomes tangible and within my reach. Once I experience it, I wonder how I ever lived without it.

That’s when I stay with Stony by choice.

But when Stony’s hidden past and present-day reality collide, his silence is broken. And the truth about his life nearly brings me to my knees. I can’t compete with ghosts from the past.

I refuse to fight for a man’s love. He either loves me or he doesn’t. It’s as simple and as complicated as that.

My only hope is . . . he does.

 

Praise for STONE SILENCE:

Oh. My. Gosh! I absolutely LOVE Stone Silence! Talk about swoony! This book is AMAZING! I was sucked in from the very beginning and found myself lost in the journey of Spencer and Stony. I laughed out loud, got teary eyed, let out little dreamy sighs and refused to put this book down until I finished it! I devoured it! -KJ’s Book Nook

Oh man. I will always read everything Taylor Dean writes with no hesitation. I LOVE Taylor Dean books. If you have never read anything by her, you really must. -Aimee, Getting Your Read On

 

Hothouse Flower, Book Three will be released on January 1st, 2018

 

 

 

Read an excerpt from Jailbird:

Excerpt #1:

Stony and Spencer’s Place.

Ugh. It’s magical inside the fenced-in property, as if I just walked into a secret garden. Stony always said he was going to build himself an oasis in the middle of the prairie land, and he did it. I didn’t expect it to be quite this beautiful. Green grass covers small rolling hills. Sidewalks meander the property. Flower beds bloom madly with all the colors of the rainbow. It’s almost like being inside of a Thomas Kinkade painting.

I want to run. I want to turn around and erase this serene picture from my mind. I’m not sure I want to witness Stony’s happily-ever-after. The consolation is that now I know I didn’t ruin his life. I should feel grateful for that knowledge. I kind of do and I kind of don’t. My emotions are a tangled mess when it comes to Stony. I’ve had two years in jail and a little over a year in Galveston to think about this moment, to anticipate exactly what I want to say to him. Now that it’s upon me, I can feel my mind going blank.

But I’m doing it anyway.

I march forward with determination in every step and I push on the doorbell before I can change my mind. I hear a Windsor chime echo through the house in a majestic sort of way. A little more cringing goes on inside of me at the perfection of it all.

The seconds before the door is answered seem interminable. I’m a hot mess.

Lock me in a tank with hungry—no—starving sharks. Put me in a lion’s den and let them have me for dinner. Make me appear on that dumb TV show, Naked and Afraid.

Anything but this. I don’t want to face Stony. I don’t, I don’t.

Stone Silence by Taylor Dean

There is something I have been wondering about. Maybe you know.

Great big beautiful love.

Does it really exist?

Everyone tells me it does. They say, “Spencer Elliott, don’t worry, you’ll find it one day. You just have to find the right man and when you do, it will surprise the heck out of you.”

What readers are saying about STONE SILENCE:

This story just wrapped me in its arms and held me tight. I adored the characters and never wanted the book to end. Dean weaves a heart-tugging romance like nobody else’s business. Her books are always a feast to my literary mind and always go on my To-Read-Again pile once I finish.

-Charissa Stastny, Author
Once again Dean takes the raw pain and hurt many of us can relate to, and creates a perfectly romantic tale for readers to escape into, giving us hope, love, second chances and ultimately that believable happily ever after we all seek for as true romance lovers.
-Mylissa’s Reviews and Book Thoughts

READ AN EXCERPT FROM STONE SILENCE:

“He kicked me out of the car. I’ve been walking for hours. Please,
if you could just . . .”
“No,” he says emphatically with a raised voice. Then again it’s as
if he’s quietly speaking to himself. “I can’t do this. I’m not ready.”
“No?” I ask, feeling unbelief. If he’ll just let me finish a
sentence, I’ll ask him for water and be on my way. “I just want a . . .”
“Roby’s just up the road,” he interrupts.
“Please, just a . . .”
“Someone will help you there,” he says with finality.
There’s a reason this guy lives all by himself in the boondocks.
He’s about as friendly as a rabid dog. I doubt there’s a prince hiding
underneath his stern demeanor. Only a beast.
Our eyes lock for a few moments. I implore him for help and I’m
met with an unyielding gaze. I feel like I just ran into a rock wall. Hard.
Help is not here. Help is not anywhere. Despair engulfs me and I
feel utterly defeated. I war between begging and my pride. My pride wins and
that’s my downfall. “Never mind,” I whisper as my voice cracks. The impending
rain will save me. I’ll cup my hands and drink to my heart’s content. I’ll find
someone else to help me. Surely there’s another house down the road.
If there isn’t, it doesn’t matter. If I’m going to survive, I have
to save myself.
Go me.
There’s no sign of compassion in this man. I cast a longing-filled
glance at his motorhome and wonder if I can make a run for it and attack his
faucet before Mr. Unfriendly even has the chance to get down from his ladder.
I know I don’t have the strength, so I turn to leave.
My gait is wobbly and I falter. The buzzing in my head increases
in volume. My head feels as though it has turned into one huge pulsing
heartbeat. I don’t want to die out here. It strikes me as odd that I might die
in the middle of the heartland because I couldn’t find anyone to help me. So
much for friendship being the Texas state motto. Maybe they
should remind their residents to act accordingly.
I hear a deep sigh from behind me. I don’t know how I hear it above
the roar in my head. It sounds as though it’s miles away and yet whispered in
my ear. Then the man says something unintelligible under his breath as his
conscience gets the best of him. I hear that loud and clear.
“Wait,” he says. “I’m sorry. Of course I’ll help you. Please come
back.”
Slowly, I turn to face him, ready to express my gratitude. The
clouds roll in at that very moment and the sky darkens. A few raindrops land on
my face and I instinctively turn my head toward the heavens, hoping moisture
will inadvertently land in my waiting mouth.
Instead, the simple act of
moving my head leaves me reeling and the lights go out as I fall to the ground
in a crumpled heap.

Best Ways to Find Kate Spade Promo Codes

I’m a self-confessed Kate Spade fanatic. Yes, I get giddy when I browse online and see all the new goodies! I love the dresses, the boots, the sunglasses, the poppy and leopard prints, the pjs and sleepwear. I swoon over the purses and wallets. I drool over their journals.

lottiebagkatekatespadewallet

katespadepurses

 

 

 

Lately I’ve been looking for a new purse and, shopping online, of course, I’m going to try to find the best coupons! It is possible to find good working Kate Spade promo codes, you just have to know where to start.

 

As many retailers do, Kate Spade offers a promo code when you sign up to receive their email newsletters. When you go to their homepage, you will see a pop-up to fill out.

katespade

 

Immediately, this popped up at the top of my screen, 15% OFF + FREE SHIPPING ACTIVATED (along with a code to enter).

But, what happens when I want to shop at Kate Spade again and have already used up my newsletter signup reward? That’s when I turn to coupon sites. Often you can find other shoppers willing to share their codes. You just have to find a site where the chances the codes work are pretty high.

In my pursuit of the best deal on my new favorite, this run wild leopard-print mini janine inspired by Josephine Baker’s pet cheetah Chiquita. minijaninekate

It’s has a crossbody strap, and just look at the adorable nose and whiskers. Too cute!

For some, it may seem logical to start with Google, which gives me a lot of different coupon sites.

google

However, as I have learned the hard way, all coupon sites are not the same. Some have coupons that don’t work, are used up or expired. So, where do I go from here? Since my favorite tool is now Dealspotr, I decided to compare it with a few other sites to see the results. Starting with RetailMeNot, I do a search for Kate Spade.

Capturermn
Not very exciting.

On to Slickdeals:

Capturesd
More interesting! But, out of date and expired! Frustrating.

Now, I’ll try Kate Spade at Dealspotr. I’ve had such good luck with them lately, that they are usually my first choice:

dealspotr1dealspotr2Already more interesting! And, right on the same page, even more ways to save at Kate Spade. Dealspotr is very user-friendly.

katespade3As you can see, Dealspotr has meters below the deal that will tell you whether it is active, expired or when it expires as well as the likelihood of the coupon code working.

Here’s a site-wide code for free shipping (always a great deal). When, I pull it up, I can see that a Dealspotr user has “validated” the deal, which means they’ve tested the code on the Kate Spade site to make sure it works. Dealspotr users do this for every deal on the site, creating a very accurate database of codes for each store.

I also love that Dealspotr tells me that Groupon has a sale of 75% off selected Kate Spade Products. I just click and I’m there. I love that I was able to find a Christmas present for my sister, a beautiful iPad case which is what she has been wanting. She also loves Kate Spade.Captureks

Dealspotr has so many single-use codes and all manner of promo codes available for Kate Spade, that you are bound to find a deal!

So, as you can see, you should never check out without using a promo code when shopping at Kate Spade or other stores! Don’t forget to bookmark Dealspotr, because with 5 million coupons and advanced code-finding tools, they are the site more pros use to find coupons.

Bonus – get 2,000 points if you sign up as a member. Members can subscribe to Kate Spade for deal updates as they arrive, and can earn points for sharing deals with others!

Extra Tip – Follow your favorite brands on Social Media. They will often alert you to sales, special discounts and coupon codes!

This is a sponsored post with Dealspotr but the opinions and love of Kate Spade are all mine.
