Happy 4th of July Freebie!

I know today’s not technically Friday, but it sort of is since we have tomorrow off. As with all holidays, I’m excited for the 4th of July and wanted to share an early Friday Freebie with you (along with some style inspiration)!

You’ve probably heard me talk about Zoya nail polish and checked out my easy nail art tutorials, so you know I am a big advocate of Zoya. I love that they are toxin free nail polishes with over 300 color choices, plus they run great promotions like this one!

To get your 3 free nail polishes, you have from now until 7/6/14 (11:59 pm EST) to add at least 3 polishes to your cart at Zoya.com. Then use promo code: THREEDOM in the coupon field at checkout, and click “apply.”

The only con is you still have to pay $12 for S&H, but you could technically look at it as $4/bottle with free shipping. Math genius here, lol. However, these polishes normally run $9 a bottle and you’d still have to pay shipping, so it’s a great deal! You can read more details about the promotion here on the Zoya blog.

While you’re at it, make sure to checkout my past 4th of July posts for some style inspiration here and here.

I’ll be taking a 7 hour trek to Pensacola, FL with my Hubby to celebrate, and I’m excited to see family and some killer beach fireworks. I’m especially excited because we plan to spend a day in Destin and Seaside, where they filmed The Truman Show. I’ve never been and have always wanted to!

How will you be spending the 4th?


Start Your Online Shopping at Ebates for Cashback!

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

This holiday season I’ve done A LOT of online shopping. As in, that’s pretty much it. The thought of braving the crowded mall terrifies me, and it’s so fun getting packages in the mail. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you’ve probably seen a few quick tips about starting all your online shopping at Ebates. I wanted to explain a little more, because if you don’t, you’re literally leaving free money on the table. Annnnd……

That Makes Me A Sad Panda

For me, shopping and getting a deal go hand-in-hand, and I love earning cashback for things I was going to buy anyways! All you have to do is signup for Ebates here (it’s free), search for the retailer you’re wanting to purchase from, click it, and a new window opens up taking you directly to that retailer’s website. Then just make your purchase as normal, and you’ll earn a percentage of cashback! It’s that easy!

To get paid, you simply link your Paypal account to Ebates, and they will automatically put the money in your account every quarter. I’ve already earned over $150 cashback for shopping, so I’m a HUGE advocate.

The other great part is when you search for a retailer, all of the current promotions, coupons, or deals for that retailer will show up. You still get those deals, plus you double-dip by earning cashback when you start at Ebates. Let’s do an example.

Right now, Express is having 40% off their entire store sitewide. I found it on Ebates below, and if I start there I will still earn the 40% off, PLUS I’ll earn 2.5% cashback! I’ve seen certain retailers as high as 10% cashback, and it all really adds up!

Ebates also has many retailers running double cashback right now. It ranges from Macy’s at 6% cashback, to Sephora at 8%, and even retailers like LivingSocial, Amazon, and Walmart! Yep, they’re on there too.

So seriously, don’t forget to signup for Ebates and start your online shopping there. Once you get the hang of it, I promise you’ll be thinking “Why didn’t I do this earlier?”

Happy shopping!


Review and Freebie: Coastal.com and Derek Cardigan Eyeglasses!

This post brought to you by Coastal.com. All opinions are 100% mine.

Eyeglasses used to be the bane of fashion, but now it’s become a trendy accessory. So much so that you see celebrities sporting glasses even if they don’t need them, or people buying multiple pairs to wear different styles with different outfits. If you’ve been following me for awhile, then you read about my quest for the perfect pair of nerdy chic, hipster eyeglasses. Then I recently got LASIK, and didn’t necessarily need those glasses anymore. I was sad because I still thought they were cute and wanted to wear them on occasion, but adding non-prescription lenses to those Raybans would be more than $100….crazy! That’s why I was so excited to have this opportunity to pick a different pair of glasses for free from Coastal.com. I have to tell you about this awesome experience, and how YOU too can get a free pair of Designer Eyeglasses!

Listen up people! 🙂

I’ve never tried purchasing eyeglass or sunglasses online before (it kind of intimidated me), but this was a really easy buying experience. Coastal.com has become the largest online retailer of eyeglasses and contact lenses in North America, and I could definitely see why! They have all of the big designer brands/products offered in stores, but for half the price. They also deliver directly to your home, and offer prescription glasses, non-prescription glasses, and even sunglasses. I specifically LOVE their line of Derek Cardigan Eyeglasses for men and women, which are classically vintage inspired, yet trendy. They have a ton of different styles and color options, like this!

Since I already had a pair of eyeglasses with a square frame, I wanted something completely different. I was thinking maybe a color like fuschia, or just a different shape. I was really gravitating towards the cateye glasses, and they had a few different Derek Cardigan cateye options. I uploaded a photo of myself and used their virtual tool online to “try on” a few pairs.

I decided this cateye style 7019 in Dark Timber was the winner. Just cateye enough, but not too over-the-top so I could still wear them to work.

Derek Cardigan 7019 Black | Derek Cardigan Glasses - Coastal.com®-1When ordering, you fill out your prescription per eye, and pick the type of lense you want (sunglass, regular, bifocal, extra thin, etc). All lenses come with anti-scratch and anti-glare. I ended up having a quick question since I was ordering non-prescription glasses, and I simply used their live chat. Super easy!

Live Assistance

My glasses arrived in the mail about 2 weeks later. They came in a nice case with a cleaner and eyeglass tool kit.

I love how Derek Cardigan puts different math symbols on his frames. This style has a colon and a semi-colon…I’m so easily amused! Now prepare for a selfie photo shoot.

I’m going to leave you with some fun facts:
Derek Cardigan Eyeglasses were featured in Flo Rida’s “I Cry” music video and Alicia Key’s “Brand New Me” music video.
-For every pair of glasses purchased, Coastal donates another pair to someone in need! Look good, while doing good!
