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.
 
Draper James emailed an offer for 30% one full priced item in store. I also got an ad on instragram recognizing it's my birthday and provided a code for 20% off online - isn't the internet wonderful y'all?
 
Prep Obsessed gives 500 rewards points, Lauren James give 500 points and Mommy Lhey give 200 - both of these companies have customer loyalty program where points can be redeemed for a small gift or store credit - 100 points is worth $1.
 
Brahmin sends an email offering 10% your next purchase and Aldo offers 20% off anything online or in store both via a unique code sent out via email.
 
Michaels send a coupon for 50% off any regular priced item.
 
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.

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Medical Facial at Ashtoria

Y'all, it has been soooooo long since I've tried a new beauty treatment to share with y'all. Partially because I've fallen into a skin care routine but also partially because it hasn't been an areas of focus, which is terrible because taking care of your skin should always be an area of focus. Lucky for me the ladies as Ashtoria were able to get me back on track.  

I recently found out about Ashtoria while attending an event at The Shops of Carriage Crossing and was excited to learn about the medical aesthetics offerings. Although I put a hold on getting Botox a few years ago I'm always down to check out the latest in anti aging. I'd love to one day get laser treatments but I don'[t feel like I'm there yet so for an entry level introduction into the Ashtoria offerings I decided to book a medical grade facial. One thing that I typically find overwhelming when thinking about getting a facial is there can be so many types to choose from and I'm u…

Plum Paper Designs - Fitness Insert

I know I say this every year but this year I also want to make wellness / fitness a priority. It's hard for me to get in the mindset of making it important because quite frankly it's not something my doctor gets onto me about. But during 2015 I've been making a switch to a more natural lifestyle and that has put fitness back at my top of mind. So, for $4.50 I got the fitness section added onto my Plum Paper Designs Planner 
Here's what's inside: 

A summary sheet at the front: 

A monthly layout for 12 months
Weight Loss Tracker at the Back 

I LOVE the monthly layout! First off, having a hydration tracker for each day is going to be so nice. I also love the idea of holding myself accountable to writing down an activity (or excuse) each day. Most of all I love the recognition that each month will have different goals and includes some note sections ; one thing I hear a lot form people who successfully got fit was that they had some kind of tracking and were able to go back…

Motherless and Childless on Mother's Day

So, yesterday was Mother's Day here in the US, if you forgot you might want to stop what you're doing and give your Mom a phone call - if she's still around that is. Mine isn't and so I find myself in an odd phase of life I never thought I'd be in - motherless and childless. It makes the day . . . interesting. A friend of mine posted on facebook how the tradition of Mother's Day was started by a woman who had recently lost her own mother, I never knew that and it did change my perspective to make the day a little better. Of course I do have a mother, everyone does, so when I say "motherless" I mean the lack of earthly presence - she wanted it this way but It's not even like I have a grave to visit and put flowers on. My grandmother is alive though so I spent the day with the family starting off by going to church, the priest was actually very personal about his own mother during the homily and it surprisingly made the day more easy to bear as wel…
