It’s my birthday month! And the 1st of August is one of the best days leading up to my birthday, because my inbox starts to get flooded with birthday freebies and coupons from my favorite stores! I try to use every coupon that comes my way, because money. And there are 15 birthday freebies that I always look for every year.
Some of my favorite birthday freebies are Sephora, Ulta (Honestly, free makeup might just be my muse) and World Market. This year (2017) Sephora is letting you choose between a Tarte blush and lip paint package or a Caudalie face moisturizer and serum combo. I went with Tarte, simply because I love their products, their lack of parabens, use of natural ingredients and that they are cruelty free. That’s what I’ve been reaching for these days in my makeup bag, so why not keep that up?
Ulta apparently does quarterly gift changes, so for any July, August or September birthdays they are giving a NYX Birthday Palette. Last year I think I got the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara which is a $23 value so I was happy! I’m hoping this year’s NYX palette will be worthwhile. Regardless, it’s free, so I’m not complaining. 🙂
World Market is honestly one of my favorite stores for birthday gifts, christmas stocking stuffers and any deco for my house and kitchen! So $10 to World Market is GOLD. This year I’m thinking about using it for some of their new fall decor (like this!).
Birthday date night!
Benihana is one of my favorite restaurants. It’s pretty pricey so we usually only go twice a year (for each of our birthday’s) and the $30 gift certificate cuts our bill in half which makes it a more affordable date night. 🙂 The only catch is you have to use it Monday through Thursday and you have to purchase another entrée. Trust me, we tried splitting one meal to make our bill free, because there is clearly enough food for two, but they wouldn’t accept our certificate. Learn from our mistake!
Have some cake…
One more favorite that is truly a must for anyone’s birthday in my family… Nothing Bundt Cakes. If you don’t have one near you… I am so sorry. Their Bundt cakes are the most decadent thing you will ever eat. And if you don’t believe me, I have watched the faces of many people as they ate their first bite of an NBC, and their life was forever changed. So with that being said… This is one of my favorite birthday freebies because they give you a FREE BUNDTLET! It’s about the size of cup saucer which can still be easily shared between two people (or just yourself. I’m debating whether or not I should tell Doug about mine that’s sitting in the back of our fridge under a bag of grapes). And if you try a Nothing Bundt Cake for the first time… make sure you get the Chocolate Chocolate Chip, or the Lemon cake. To die for!
