Blog Spotlight | Steals, Deals & Heels

I am running a feature spotlighting other Review & Giveaway Blogs. If you have one and would like to be featured, please email me at simplystacieblog@gmail.com


Today I would like to welcome Tiffany from Steals, Deals and Heels. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

I am a stay at home mom but a VERY busy mom! My one and only kiddo goes to physical therapy 3 days a week PLUS I am VERY involved in my church and a few charities….especially the March of Dimes! Go Fight Club!!

Please tell me about your blog.

It started as a way to tell everyone about these CRAZY deals my mom (The Wizard) and I would find. But as we all know the way to gain followers is to do a little bit of bribery so I contacted some etsy shops and before I knew it Tuesday Giveaways was born. The etsy shops have been so awesome! I am “booked” months in advanced on the giveaways!!

How long have you been blogging?

A little over a year….but that is with my “personal” blog…Steals, Deals and Heels will be a year this August or is it September??

How did you get started?

I created a blog originally for my daughter as a way to keep our family up-to-date on her tidings (Tessa’s Tidings). She is my little miracle…born 15 weeks premature! There were thousands of people praying for her so I figured it was the least I could do for everyone!!

As for Steals, Deals and Heels…..Well…I LOVE to shop. Actually…CORRECTION….I LOVE to bargain shop! I ONLY buy stuff on clearance of course unless it is a necessity but I have been known to wait until that necessity was on sale! One day a friend suggested I post an awesome DEAL I got on facebook and when I got a pretty decent response I figured people might want to read about my finds! So I started the blog!

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

ANY deal from ANY store! I like to feature DEALS you will find IN stores…not stuff anyone can find online but stuff you’ve got to find on the shelves….’cause we know it is ALWAYS cheaper there!! I frequent Target so most of the deals are from there. I also post things you’ll find on the net, FREEBIES, LOVE Walgreen’s Clearance and of course Tuesday Giveaways!

What was your favourite giveaway?

We didn’t have very many follower just yet but to kick of 2010 we did a BIG Party Giveaway! We had like 6 etsy shops giving items to create a SUPER FABULOUS kids party!! Oh…and I always LOVE the jewelry ones!!! Too bad I can never enter them! 🙁

Who does your blog appeal to?

woman….woman…..woman! Yeah..I’d say the ladies…though I don’t discriminate. The giveaways have always been kid or woman friendly.

What direction do you see your blog going in the future?

Um…never thought of this one?? Straight? I like where I am at now! I like the steady pace of growth I’ve had. I LOVE the followers and they seem to like me…they keep coming back!

What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?

Getting out to find deals! Like I mentioned I have a small child…anyone with kiddos knows it’s not as easy as we’d like to load up and head to the store! I’d like it if more follower sent in their finds to be featured…that would be awesome!!

What do you love about blogging?

Connecting! I have met some really amazing people! Some in real life…some in this crazy online world! One has become my best friend…the one that actually convinced me to make the move and finally start sharing my bargain highs!

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

Not really…well maybe….people that follow soooooo many giveaway blogs that they can’t keep track! That’s why I have the winners contact me! If you’re gunna win…I’d at least like to know you appreciate it enough to check in every now and then!

Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway? newbie review bloggers?

Um….to read my last answer?! KIDDING! sort of!

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

I am really into home decor right now and planning my daughter’s 2nd birthday so those are the type of blogs I follow. Some of my favs are…..Kara’s Party Ideas, Buggie and Jellybean, Better After, Drab to Fab, Thrifty and Chic…can you see a pattern? I like style….for CHEAP!!! Oh and can’t forget my best bud who got me to start up S&H….The Nuggets

How can people find you?
