Bespoke Post - Seared Review + 30% off COUPON!!

Bespoke Post - "Seared" Review
EDITED on June 1, 2016 -- Bespoke Post Coupon Code!!

Hi! It has been a SUPER long time since I have posted! This past semester of nursing school was a killer!! I was at school literally 6 days/wk, clinicals on weekends as well. Ugh... One more semester left though! :D

Anyway, I just thought I would post about the Bespoke Post "Seared" box. We got one each for my Dad and my bf's Mom for Christmas. They both loved it and are super excited to use it. Sorry, I had to use the Bespoke Post picture because I forgot to take pics of the items that came. I got to see the contents of my Dad's box and it was exactly as pictured and super nice quality. Bespoke Post never fails in that regard! 

Bespoke and Birchbox are my favorites (and regulars) in terms of subscription boxes. I don't get Bespoke Post as often as Birchbox because of cost, but once I'm working full-time, that may change! ;) Seriously though, if you're new to subscription boxes, I would def try Bespoke and Birchbox first. (Get 30% off your 1st Bespoke Post Box with code "RESCUE" and get 50% off your 1st Birchbox with my link!)

Happy New Year!! Hope you enjoyed the holidays! :)

July 2015 Birchbox Review + Coupon Code!!

July 2015 Birchbox Review

Here's your coupon! :)

I've tried their dry shampoo, love it! I hope I'll like this texture spray as much...

I'm sick of getting so many sunscreens in my boxes. Every time! Boring!

I use Muji cleansing oil, so this will be fun to try. 

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer (30mL) - $3.79
I tried this last night, it was nice but seems a little silly. Maybe it's better for people will constantly dry skin.

I tried this as well and not sure if I like it. It was thick and covered well, but it was hard to apply with the spongy little applicator. Very easy to look like a clown.


Nice! What was in your Birchbox??

Save $ with Giftcards!

I've been MIA because of nursing school, but it's over for the summer so I'm back!

Here's a quick money saving tip!

If you plan on making a purchase at a specific store, buy discounted gift cards to use as your payment. You can save a ton! Look at what I recently saved by doing this and taking advantage of a big sale...

I went on a bit of a shopping spree for my birthday and for interviewing clothes at Forever 21.

Original Total = $376.70 (not including tax, which was around $22)
20% Sale off everything (promo) = -$75.34
New Total minus F21 Sale Discount = $301.36
Giftcards Bought = $314.01 value (PAID = $281.71 -- Savings = $32.30)

Total Savings = $107.64 (before tax)

My math may be a little off, but regardless, it's a HUGE discount!

Just thought I'd share :)

I'll have some Birchbox and Bespoke reviews up soon!

November 2014 Bespoke Post: "Slate" Review

I looove Bespoke Post. The contents are always high quality and so well curated.
This collection is filled with the perfect pairings for a bourbon tasting! Yummy

*I'm using item descriptions straight from Bespoke Post, they'll be in quotes.

Sopressata Salami, 5.5 oz Creminelli = $9.63 value

"All of Creminelli's award-winning artisan charcuterie is delicious, but this sopressata — hand-tied and slowly cured in a natural casing — is our very favorite. Garlic and red wine notes give it a robust flavor that's dangerously good."

Bourbon Brittle, Buffalo Trace = $5 value

"A smoky and sweet take on peanut brittle made with booze from Buffalo Trace, the oldest continuously operating bourbon distillery in the states. That's because they kept on distilling though prohibition in order to make whiskey for "medicinal purposes"."

Signature Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 5 oz, Old Town Oil = $6.68 value

"Classic olive flavors form a mild yet complex base with refined flavor reminiscent of almonds, tomatoes, and fresh herbs. Simply put, it's miles above your normal supermarket fare. Pick up a fresh baguette, tear off a piece, and get to dipping."

Barrel-Aged 18-yr Style Balsamic Vinegar, 5 oz, Old Town Oil = $7.08 value

"This barrel-aged reserve has got the texture of honey, the complexity of a top shelf single malt, and an unreal sweetness and tang. Toss some on salads, meat, or even fruit."

Garlic Dill Mustard, Mustard and Co. = $7 value

"A minimally processed mustard that's made the old school way. The time honored technique keeps the mustard seed intact to preserve the sharp flavor, then uses quality local ingredients like organic olive oil, fresh dill, and lots of garlic. It makes for a rounded flavor that'll punch up any spread."

#22 Bourbon Toothpicks, Daneson = $9 value

"You weren't going to eat everything with your fingers, were you? These sleek toothpicks are made from A-grade American white birch and then soaked in six year Kentucky bourbon, so that your cheese and charcuterie gets a boozy nuance."

Geez, pricey toothpicks! I love the little bottle they came in. I love tiny things.

Natural Slate Serving Board, 10"x14", Brooklyn Slate = $33 value

"These hand-cut, rough-edged slate slabs are sourced from a family-run quarry in upstate New York. Each one has its own slight surface imperfections, adding to the tough vibe and making every board unique. Top it with your favorite cheese and charcuterie for a distinctive, rustic display. You can even clue your guests into what's what with the included soapstone chalk."

Super nice large piece of slate. It came with a packet of chalk, so cute! And it's from Brooklyn, my old home that I'll always love :D

Nice!! Totally worth $45 since I love everything! 

T Eyeglasses Review + Coupon Codes GALORE!!

I bought a pair of eyeglasses from a few months ago. I'm hooked! The prices are low, they have SO many different styles and options, and the customer service is great!

Like most eyeglasses websites, you can upload a photo of yourself to "try on" virtual glasses. I felt that the virtual try-on was fairly close to what they actually looked like on. Thankfully!

I paid ~$58 for the eyeglasses (came with a hard case, cleaning cloth, and little eyeglass repair kit (mini screwdriver, cleaning solution, cleaning cloth).

The lenses seemed a little warped so they rushed out a new pair for me and emailed me a pre-paid return shipping label for the old paid for FREE! I will definitely buy from Coastal again!

(note: I use all 3 cashback sites and have been paid back a total of ~$100 cashback in the past year and I RARELY shop since I'm usually broke nowadays... I'm in nursing school ;)! The holidays are a PERFECT time to rack up your cashback bc of all the christmas shopping and what not)

*"NEWCOASTAL" = 10% off 1st order! (new customers only)
*"15OFFCL" = 15% off 4 boxes of contacts
*"CYBERCL" = $10 off $99+ contact lens order
*"25EXTRA" = 25% off eyeglasses & Lens Upgrades
*"2FOR99" = 2 pairs eyeglasses for $99
