Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  

 
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the beginning of their birthday month and there is no purchase minimum. Charming Charlie is a great place to pick up trendy jewelry for a great price and right now I'm really into statement earrings - check out my recent post for my favorite selections - so I'll probably stop by and grab a new pair.
 
Vera Bradley sends postcards to shoppers (you need to provide your mailing address when you make an in-store purchase) for 25% off plus a birthday treat if visiting in store. This discount can be used in store, at a Vera Bradley outlet or online.
\
Rent the Runway sends a $25 credit towards a dress rental during your birthday month - sign up for emails and provide your information to receive this discount. This is a really fun idea if you're doing something special and want a special dress to celebrate in.
 
Plus size fashion brand Torrid emails a $10 off your next purchase discount during your birthday months to members of their rewards program. I'm not usually one for shorts but this lace pair is really speaking to me.
 
 
Sephora partners with some of the brands carried in-store to offer deluxe samples during your birthday month to beauty insiders, you can sign up in store or online and redeem both ways as well. Last year I received a mini Marc Jacobs lipstick and eyeliner set. This year beauty insiders can choose between Tarte lip and check set (my pick) or Claudalie Moisturizer and serum set - higher level members have exclusive VIB and VIB Rouge options as well.  
 
Most chain restaurants will send an email for a free dessert to members of their rewards program to be used during the birthday month. I shared the molten chocolate cake with Shaun recently at Longhorn - yum! This deal is extended to all the restaurants under the same ownership umbrella - Olive Garden, Capitol Grill, Seasons 52 and a few others we don't have in the Memphis area.
 
 
Some restaurants offer different deals. Red Robin will give you a free burger, Firebirds a $10 discount and The Melting Pot a box of chocolate covered strawberries - which are delicious btw.
 
Most of these discounts do require some kind of purchase to receive but if its brands you are spending money with anyway it's certainly worth the effort to join their loyalty programs and receive some extra perks once a year.

Shelby Jewel

I really wanted to have this post up yesterday but if you've been following my instagram stories at all you will have seen that I remembered this weekend that I still needed to refinish my dining room table if I had any hopes of using it for Thanksgiving (and yes, I am on track to finish it tonight, Woohoo!) So here I am a day late but not a dollar short with a post on some fun fashion finds. Last week I attended the preview party for a new online boutique started by Memphis Blogger Shelby Jewel. Shelby has beautiful taste so I knew I was interested in checking out her boutique. Nothing says welcome like a glass of Champagne! Racks of beautiful tops Swoon worthy Jackets Pretty Tassel Earrings So, I'll admit I was very nervous about this event, Shelby is very small and most boutique sizes are small as well - I am not. But, I really wanted to see the pretty things and thought hey, you never know. As I predicted clothing is available in S - L but I have found that with some bou…

Thanksgiving Essentials

 Next week is Thanksgiving and I am soooo excited! Thanksgiving is basically all of my favorite things in one day - chilling in pjs watching the parade, delicious food, family time, and shopping! For the past few years we have gone our for Thanksgiving because the condo was not wheelchair friendly for my grandmother and my dad moved out of town but this year we're going back to having Thanksgiving at home and while I'm sad we won't have my grandma this year I am excited to be cooking the Thanksgiving meal again. In my humble opinion Thanksgiving is no time for healthy eating and since everyone has their own favorites I say bring on the carbs - this is what my menu this year will be: 1. Champagne Turkey 2. Stuffing 3. Green Bean Casserole 4. Sweet Potato Casserole 5. Mashed Potatoes 6. Peas 7. Corn Soufflé 8. Broccoli 9. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls 10. Cranberry sauce (from the can of course, I hate it but my family tells me this is the only way to have it) 11. Pie 12. Ma…

Target Beauty Box

Since I no longer get Ipsy I thought it would be fun to try the Target beauty box this month. The cost is only $7 and includes a $3 coupon towards my next beauty purchase. Here's what's inside:


Super Aqua Snail Mask $6
Snail mucin beauty products are all the rage right now. Basically women are like seaweed doesn't gross us out anymore, what's something even more nasty we can put on our faces? This was my first time trying a snail product and I'll admit I didn't dislike it . This mask has a jell layer instead of being a paper mask but it's just as easy to use as a paper mask. Allegedly this mask hydrates and heals skin while preventing aging - I don't know about all of that but it did feel nice and I'[m not wearing makeup today and not offended by the way my face looks so I guess that's a good thing.

Tom's Coconut Oil Soap $4
I had high hopes for this - if felt nice going on, I like the scent and it left my bathwater all milky. However, it…

Prep Obsessed Mystery Mailers - 2017 Holiday Season

I might have a slight addiction to Prep Obsessed mystery mailers. The are a great value, the products are always really cute, the t-shirts are so comfortable and flattering, and they get me to try items I might not have purchased on their own, so what's not to love? The latest round of mystery mailers are all about celebrating the holiday season. I have received the Thanksgiving , Black Friday and Thanksgiving Hostess and will be purchasing the Christmas and New Year mailers - they also currently have a Christmas Hostess and several fashion mystery mailers available. I have been purchasing mystery mailers from Prep Obsessed pretty much ever since they started offering them and I have never been disappointed in what I received. For Thanksgiving and Black Friday I purchased a combo mailer which means I got free shipping and a bonus item - they are also doing a Christmas / New Year combo that gives a discount. Here's the bonus item, a super cute Prep Obsessed exclusive tumble…

Gratitude Challenge

So this month I was all set to do the whole gratitude challenge thing  but as I started to think of what things I might post about I started to think maybe this isn't the best idea. Is it possible to do a gratitude challenge and come up with 30 unique expressions of gratitude without humble bragging? My day to day life is pretty boring and we don't have cute kids that provide a constant supply of little daily antidotes to be grateful about and I know that this isn't about picking up 30 material possessions  in my life and posting about them. But even when I look past the "stuff" in my life and more behind emotional and non tangible things it still just doesn't feel right - does the friend with the sick kid really need my post about how #blessed I am with good health popping up in her feed? I think not. 
Maybe I'm being Debbie downer on what's supposed to be a lighthearted and fun social media engagement but I just can't get my heart into it becau…
