I’m so excited right now but unable to actually get my head around the idea of waiting for commissions to actually be done. There’s a guy drawing me art for a character I’ve had him draw before. I just want to show this off even more than before, so hence the blog post.
Obviously, you can click for a full image. I’m absolutely blown away by his ability to draw and the prices he offers his pictures for.
With Halloween just around the corner, it’s probably a good idea to get your head around what costume you might want to wear– or perhaps even get a costume or that upcoming back to school costume party you have going– and there’s really no better places to go to get ideas than a Costume Store , either online or in reality.
The climate around Yuma isn’t exactly helpful to the idea of actually going out and trick or treating, and my age kind of tends to get in the way of that, considering I’m pushing 30, but somehow the idea of finally dressing up again and having some fun handing out the candy to the kids who do show up seems like a better idea than just sitting home and wishing I were 12 again.
While finding a costume for me is a bit harder than one would like, considering I’m plus-sized, I find it easier to find those kinds of costumes online than I would in upscale stores. I’ve already found a few ideas just poking around halloweenadventure.com as well as a few other places– the prices seem reasonable enough at the former, though, and I might end up getting a costume. Perhaps something a little playful, to finally have fun with my size rather than downplaying it behind some overworked costume.
It’s easier to plan out a costume early than to wait until the last moment, and honestly I invite you to check out some Halloween Costumes | Plus Size Costumes | Childrens Costumes at the amazingly simple to navigate and unique costume store.
This post brought to you by Zenni Optical though all opinions written are mine.
Having written about Zenni Optical before, it’s hard to imagine that I still haven’t been able to take advantage of their amazing deals, as the inability to actually afford the appointment to get a prescription for prescription sunglasses or even regular glasses is beyond my reach, but still it’s hard to fathom how anyone could pass up deals such as that on beautiful and chic frames.
It’s becoming even more popular now that Clark Howard, author of the popular book “Clark Howard’s Living Large in Lean Times,” has gone on to say that buying your glasses from Zenni Optical can end up saving you thousands of dollars, and change your entire budget– it’s hard not to agree when you realise that the average pair of glasses for just basic frames will cost anywhere from 70-100 dollars, and that’s what’s considered cheap! Whereas on Zenni Optical.com you can get a pair of glasses for as low as 7$ a pair, which is a fraction of the cost you’d pay at any high end boutique, or even most discount eyewear providers. We’re talking prescription glasses for a fraction of their retail price. They’re not cheap knock-offs or poorly made frames, they’re high quality and durable prescription glasses guaranteed to be as good as any pair you’d get at full price elsewhere. That’s amazing, and I still wish I could take advantage.
Through the struggling economy, it feels like more and more people are trying make ends meet through cutting coupons and looking for special deals.
Couponing has become a major phenomenon and people all over the world are making a killing through clipping, printing, and amassing coupons for everything from food products to household items bought in bulk. There’s even a show following on TLC called Extreme Couponing where you get to see these fanatically families and the way they coupon– some of it is as simple as cutting a few corners and collecting coupons, to spending months at a time planning out your budget and shopping trips to maximise your profits through spreadsheets and detailed shopping maps.
One way to find yourself saving a bit easier is through online Savings sites, finding coupons and managing your monthly budget through the deals offered there; anything from electronics to clothing or food, and everything in between. You can find discounts ranging from a few dollars off, to over 60% off brand name items and products that you might have been resisting given the economic climate. It’s separated into an easy to use interface as well! As if they want you to find these ridiculous deals without much hassle– long gone are the days of scouring an entire paper for a single coupon you heard might be advertised.
It’s no longer something that just frazzled women living in the past are doing– couponing has become something of the future, and more families are moving into the age of technology and taking their savings with them in such a way that they find themselves comfortable.
Even if your mind is still stuck on the idea of your mom cutting coupons out of the valupak and sticking them in the gaudy coupon holder with the many pockets, you’ll find yourself wanting to dive right back in with the new practice of couponing, to save those valuable pennies and dollars.
