Hooray It's Allergy/Cold Season!

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Kleenex but all my opinions are my own. #KleenexAllergy #pmedia http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO
I hope you can read through the sarcasm in my title because NOPE I'm not too thrilled about it! Don't get me wrong I LOVE Fall! Boots, scarves and pumpkin spiced lattes are my kinda language but along with it comes stuffy noses, sore throats and occasionally fevers. This is what my nightstand mostly looks like around this time of year...
In fact I was sick these last TWO WEEKS and just started feeling better this week. My days were spent sucking on cough drops, drinking chamomile tea and using lots and lots of Kleenex tissues. I actually keep a box in every room of the house. I mean they've got so many cute colors and patterns it's easy to find one that matches your decor...
My daughter Sarah is turning out to be just like me. Right down to the sicky child-ness (made that up). Growing up I would get sick often, I was the "sicky" child. When we moved to Texas from Illinois it seemed to help, I wouldn't get sick as often but then I developed seasonal allergies. 

If you live in the Austin area chances are you suffer from seasonal allergies. If you move here then prepare to suffer... from allergies that is because Austin is AWESOME otherwise! Turns out I'm allergic to Oak which is particularly high around March-April. My daughter doesn't suffer from allergies thankfully but she does get sick pretty often. This little girl likes to keep a box of Kleenex in her room and let me tell ya, she goes through that box fast!  
It's great having tissues at home but what about when you're out and about running errands and your kid has got a runny nose? Have you ever had to use your shirt? Yup, been there! I actually purchased a Kleenex go pack last year because I saw them at the Target check out and they looked so cute! I'm glad I did because they REALLY came in handy... saved a couple of my shirts!
I like to keep a pack or two in my diaper bag. They're cute and convenient! Win-win!
If you haven't stocked up on Kleenex yet then I've got a deal for you! Even if you do have a couple boxes already, it wouldn't hurt to get a couple more right? So head on over to Target and use this Coupon:
 Buy Kleenex 4pack, get free wallet pack (2-pk) or pocket pack (3-pk) FREE: http://goo.gl/186og3
(while supplies last)
Looks like I'm all set for this allergy/cold season! Are you?
Do you suffer from seasonal allergies?


  1. These are the cutest Kleenex packages! I actually bought them in bulk the other day because they're perfect to toss in my purse and even in my scrubs for clinical! I'm totally going to use that coupon you provided though-- thank you for that!

  2. I do have allergies! So does my hubby and you're right Kleenex are a MUST! ox

  3. I have purchased those travel size Kleenex packages and LOVE them! My youngest has terrible winter allergies so I have to carry them with me everywhere starting about this time of the year!

  4. This post is so great. Love your photos. Kleenex Tissues are the best.

  5. I am obsessed with your lamp!!

  6. We have Kleenex ALL over the house (and cars) right now!


I would LOVE to hear from you! :)
