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.

20 Rules for Modern Feminine Style

One of the things I love about the digital age is the ability to connect with others! I recently got a great idea from a youtuber I follow to make a list of 20 "rules" that define my lifestyle and I really loved this idea and thought not only would this be a good exercise for myself but a good topic to share with y'all. So, obviously you do you and wear whatever you want but these are my guidelines for my modern feminine without breaking the bank aesthetic.
1. Focus on pieces with wear ability beyond one season, don't get sucked into too many trends. For example, gingham will always be wearable for summer, plaid for fall, sweaters for winter and floral for spring - but get pieces with classic cuts so you can wear them year after year. For example, a gingham shirt dress is classic, a gingham top with bell sleeves will look dated the second that shape is out. 2. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for quality timeless pieces - a cashmere sweater, a great blac…

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 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…

Jessica London Style Swap

One of my favorite things about social media is how it has become this wonderful shared collective space. When it comes to fashion I love styling outfits and mixing up items in my closet but I also love seeing how other people style the pieces I have and I am always getting style inspiration from others.
In that spirit this month I teamed up with Lexi Nimmo to share some of our favorite pieces for fall from Jessica London. Lexi and I recently discovered that we have the same taste in clothing and tend to pick a lot of the same pieces so we thought it would be fun to team up and style some of the same items on purpose for once. We each picked two items so we could have four looks each to share. 
Lexi picked a leather moto jacket and sleeveless mock neck sweater. I decided to get the jacket in blue instead of the traditional black because I wear a lot of blue as is so I knew it would go with a lot of things in my closet. For the mock neck sweater I went with a cream color because I’ve …

How to enjoy your patio in style

I have a confession - I have two tables for dining inside my home and right now neither is suitable for sitting down and having a meal at. Between all the travel and every single weekend for the past few months being filling with either heading out on a trip, coming home from a trip or catching up on laundry and packing for the next trip eating at home and keeping an neat house just hasn't been a priority. So the kitchen table has turned into a grocery staging area and kitchen odds and ends and the dining table has become my package receiving area and suitcase staging. So with the weather suitable for dining al fresco I was thrilled when the folks at Full Beauty Brands reached out about creating an outdoor oasis for our back patio.

My husband Shaun does a pretty good job of mowing the lawn on a regular basis and we have a service to spray to keep the grass green and the weeds at bay but despite our best efforts the grass will not grow right around our patio because the roof sha…

In my Thirtys, Flirty and Thriving

There’s something about birthdays that makes me very reflective. Turning 34 felt like nbd but 35 has me all whoa, wait a minute how did this happen so I’m feeling extra reflective this year and thought this might be a good space to share some of the conclusions I’ve come to over the past year. Plus cake smash pictures, because why not? 
Looking back I think I spent a lot of my 20s caring about the wrong things and taking myself too seriously , at 35 I shrug my shoulders at a lot in life so I thought jumping on this goofy trend of adults  doing birthday photo shoots would be a good way to acknowledge my freedom from seriousness. I’m not saying that there’s never a time and place to be serious but life is short , live a little. 




The older I’ve become the more I’ve adopted an IDGAF mentality and the less of a people pleaser I am. At the end of the day I am my own responsibility, my happiness , my well being , my life is all my responsibility so I’ve found myself putting myself first. I …
