*  With ShopKick  I do get a tiny something for referrals. I would not promote something I didn’t think was absolutely awesome.


Lets just jump right into it. I am such a fan of ShopKick! It’s a mobile that allows you to earn points towards various types of rewards.


The way it ShopKick works


  • You earn kicks by walking in to select stores with app running
  • Scan select items for different amounts of kicks
  • Buying advertised products followed by picture of your receipt
  • Kicks for dollars spent at select stores
  • Sometimes there’s bonus kicks for scanning items of a certain brand
  • Watching commercials in app for products earns kicks


Walk-in kicks are the easiest to obtain. You have to have the app open while walking into stores. Some of these stores include Target, Wal-Mart, and Best Buy just to name a few. Not all stores have walk-in kicks. If you’re feeling lazy have someone with you so they can get out of the car. Please don’t abandon your car for kicks!!!


Scanning for kicks is available in most of the stores advertised in the app. My husband and I have tons of fun going around the store trying to find all the items to scan. It’s kind of like a scavenger hunt. Sometimes you can find everything but there are times where you can only get a few items.


Several stores give you kicks that depend on how much you spend. They don’t have to necessarily be the items that you scanned for. It can be anything.

Potentially, you can get 1-5 kicks per dollar spent. This is an easy way to rack up kicks. For example, my husband bought a new desktop from BestBuy and it was 5 kicks per dollar that day, the total was about $600. That was an easy 3000 points!


Receipt purchases are called KickBate. Scan your receipt that have certain items listed in the app. It will take a few days for processing. Please make sure your receipt can be read clearly, otherwise there is no point.

Redeeming kicks


Lastly, after you have met your goal, which you can see by your tracker, you can get your ideal reward. I had just redeemed my reward of 25 dollars (6,250 kicks) at Best Buy.

  • Most of these items are redeemed through your app. A few items would be sent to you. Such items include like a Gas card or a Tiffany’s gift card (yes, that Tiffany’s)


I still can’t enough about how much I love this app. It is so fun!Download the app today and get $2 to get started.



Don’t Forget to Love Yourself Too

Love Yourselflove picture quote

It’s Valentines Day.  Whether or not you have that one specific person to celebrate with, you should remember to Love Yourself too.

 Your perspective on yourself can effect your perspective on everything around you. You can’t achieve your goals or even set them if you don’t feel it for yourself.

It truly starts with you. How can you be all the things you would want for someone else if you yourself don’t have them. Loving yourself gives you the building blocks of loving others.

Be the support you need. Be the person who cheers you on. Be the person that loves to look in the mirror. Your opinion matters most and everyone else is secondary. Whether or not you are in that perfect relationship with someone else. make sure that you’re in that perfect relationship with yourself too. If, right now you’re not feeling 100% about yourself, think you’re feeling that way. See what you can change. You would be surprised at what happens next.

That person the mirror is amazing. That person can handle anything. You can do anything. You are important. You deserve love.  You matter. You are strong. You are worth it.

If you aren’t saying any of these things on a regular then change that. Start saying these things. Believe these words.

It’s not wrong to feel good about yourself. People like people who have a positive outlook on themselves.

When was the last time you were with one who you could just tell hated themselves? was it a fun time? was there lots on sighs or just overall bad comments?  Who wants to be that person? Be the person people want to spend time with.  We all have those days that suck and sometimes it will be hard. Just remember everything that we talked about.

How do you show yourself you love you? list some tips; make a suggestion in the comments.

Words of Praise

I have had a wonderful first week. I have the opportunity to be a program called “ Parent Mentors” at my Daughters school. What is this program?

We, the parents, have the ability to be part of one classroom for a few hours a week and help the children learn a little more efficiently. Something we had learned during this first week of training is, ways to praise. Saying “Good Job” all of the time can be boring and almost fake. Here is the list that I was given:

  1. Well done
  2. Excellent
  3. I like the effort you put in
  4. Magnificent
  5. Good Concentration
  6. Marvelous
  7. You’re doing this well
  8. You’re improving greatly
  9. I knew you could do it
  10. I am proud of the way you are working
  11. I knew you could do it!
  12. You are learning quickly
  13. I like the way you tried multiple strategies on this problem
  14. You did a lot of work today
  15. You are really trying
  16. That is much better
  17. Please, continue you’re doing a great job
  18. Congratulations
  19. That’s correct
  20. Sensational
  21. You’re making great progress
  22. That’s the way you do it

At first, after reading all of the words, it seems sort of fake. I had actually had the opportunity to actually apply some new praise in my own situations and there was a difference. Even though some of these words seem obvious, we sometimes forget that there are other words we can use. It can also make someone’s day feel a whole lot better.
