How I Can Help Your Brand!

Are you a budding new business that is struggling to increase exposure and sales? You came to the right place! Let me tell you a little bit about me and how I can help your brand.

Who Am I?

My name is Melanie and I am a spunky Generation X career mom.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, then moved to Vegas for a few years before ultimately settling down with my family in Phoenix, AZ. I work full time at my day job and then come home to my 3 boys – my son Jaxon, my husband Brian, and our dog Archibald Nibbler (Archie for short).

I take pride in being low-maintenance and frugal. I love finding creative ways to save and make extra income with very little effort.

While I am a very hard worker when it comes to my job, I am fairly undomesticated. I don’t enjoy cooking or cleaning, so I am always looking for products and hacks to make mundane tasks easier and fun.

The slogan “Work smarter, not harder” could be my personal motto.

Being an old-school goth, I’m intrigued by all things dark, mysterious, and maybe even a little macabre.  I love alternative fashion, industrial music, and twisted TV shows.

What is Cheap & Cheeky All About?

Cheap & Cheeky originally started off in 2014 as a tiny review blog called Enjoy Freebies.

After some fresh re-branding, Cheap & Cheeky is not only a trusted name for product reviews, but also focuses on innovative ways to get more out of life on a budget.

I speak to my readers like I speak to my friends – with a hint of wit and a dash of sarcasm.

I only post reviews on products that I have personally tried and tested. And I’ve reviewed everything from makeup to skin care, to gadgets, to food, to toys…you name it.

In addition to talking about the product, I also show how to use it. This really helps a potential buyer make a decision.

I often get my family to help test out products with me and feature them frequently in my reviews. My son loves trying out new toys and games, and my dog loves to try out treats. No surprise there!

My favorite topics are skin care and makeup, health and wellness, unique products for the home, and ways to save money.

I also enjoy throwing in a cheeky rant & ramble – just to spice things up.

What Makes Cheap & Cheeky Different?

In addition to my blog, I also have a blossoming YouTube channel, that currently has over 2000 subscribers and is steadily growing.

I love to incorporate my videos into my blog posts for double the exposure. And one of the great things about YouTube is that it continually generates views over time. It’s permanent!

This means double the exposure for your brand!

In addition to blog reviews, and YouTube videos, I can advertise your brand to my followers on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.  I do giveaways too!
