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.

Why I Blog

Years before I had an instagram account I had a Yelp account and I must admit that my very first review was a terrible 1 star review. While I think honest good and bad experiences are valuable on review sites I realized that's not the person I wanted to be. Instead of only putting negative thoughts into the world I challenged myself that for every negative review to take the time to write five positive reviews. Soon I found myself gushing over businesses I love and writing reviews of businesses I was trying for the first time. Within a few months I was invited to join the Elite squad - now I  have over 250 reviews and have reached gold elite status - this means I've been on the squad for five years. As much as I enjoy sharing reviews I enjoy reading them. I'm a planner and researcher by nature so before I go anywhere I want to know as much as possible. For example, when we go out to California we're going to have tea at the Hello Kitty Grand Café - I have read every …

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…

Essential Oil Make and Take

This year I've been doing a lot of homemade products and while it started off as being tired of running to the store for laundry detergent and face wash every few weeks its turned into more than that. As I researched and lookedup recipes   I started to discover that I could use homemade products for my health! I get migraines y'all and I will do ANYTHING to treat them. I've unsuccessful taken preventative medicine, destroyed my liver and stomach lining with OTC treatments for years, drained my bank account on prescription drugs, gone to the chiropractor, severally limited my alcohol and I still get them. My remaining options were: Botox, acupuncture, and moving to Colorado. But now I have hope. So where am I finding this hope? In essential oils. 
I've spent the past month really looking into it and decided I have nothing to lose. So as I was looking into different brands a FB friend posted that she was having an Essential Oils 101 class and Make and Take - perfect timin…

Holiday Mail

I love sending Christmas cards, I also love getting Christmas / holiday cards. Growing up Christmas cards were serious business. My Mom kept a book of who she sent them to and who sent one to us, three years and no card you were off the list. It's something my friends and I discuss today, seems like lots of moms ran their card list that way and now I find myself being a little less strict but keeping up with my list the same way. You would think that by 29 I'd have a pretty firm list of people I send Christmas cards to, but nope, it continues to change every year. Of course, the fact that I lost the disk with all the addresses from the prior year hurt a lot, that address list had every single person who attended my mom's memorial service or sent a card, it was a very handy but sad way to keep up with my non immediate family. A few years ago I use to think that I'd send a card to anyone that if I was to become engaged would make it onto my wedding guest list. Now that…

Lane Bryant x Girl With Curves Try On

If you wear a size 12+ unless you aren't on social media you've probably heard that Lane Bryant has launched a 20 piece collaboration with blogger Girl With Curves. With items selling out online on the launch day I knew I had to hurry up if I wanted to see things in store and try them on. 
The in-store display at the Southaven, MS location
The fitting room lighting was not great and while I'm not a fan of the mirror selfies sometimes you've got to work with what you have and I do want to be able to show you how these items fit. But, please don't judge my poor photo quality too much.
The item I wanted the most - like every other curvy girl apparently was the navy blue trench dress and this sold out online and was not in my local store. But, I was able to try on the other items I was most interested in.

The pleated lace black dress had a nice fit and I like how instead of a plain elastic waist it had a faux belt look. I think this dress would look waaaaay better …
