Gardening with Confidence: SproutRobot

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Plants want to grow; it’s how they’re engineered. I don’t have a degree in Biology, but I did take a Horticulture class that year I was on scholastic probation. So, I feel credible in giving that first statement. We’ve been consistent gardeners for several years now, from small containers to raised beds. Typically I plant […]

Dollars: Mobile applications and coupons

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

It’s no secret we’re into getting a good deal at More Than Heels.  I’ve been spending a lot of my time looking at daily deals since the savings tend to be deeper (at least 50%) compared to coupons which typically range between 10-40%. But that’s not to say that I’d turn down a good coupon. […]

For a long time I’ve been really self-conscience about my hair. I got my first gray hair in high school and I’m pretty sure I haven’t seen my natural hair color since then. I’m afraid to think what’s under the years of color. In my early twenties I used the good store brand hair color, […]

Dollars: Birthday brought to you by a Daily Deals website

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

I’ve started what could easily turn into a bad habit; Justifying the rapid purchase of daily deals. For example, it’s my little sister’s birthday and I’ve been buying a few deals over the past month and every time I say, “oh, this would be great for Lizzy’s birthday.” I do truly think I was able […]
