Going to get fat and go broke! :)

I'm turning 29 again Smiley Wink on the 11th and since it's my birthday month my inbox is getting swamped with offers!  Get 20% off your order, free dessert, free burger, free lip gloss... just to name a few.  I've taken advantage of free mascara from Smashbox and the Sugar Lip duo from Sephora but that's all. 

 

I always have the sense of "throwing away money" when I don't take advantage of "free" offers even though a purchase is required.  It makes me feel twitchy.  Help me stay strong!

Happy Birthday Kalex!  I hope you had a great day and I wish you a year filled with all the very best!

As far as those "free" offers are concerned-it's only a deal if it's something you really want.  Otherwise, it's just a way to separate you from your money.  I do love the birthday gift from Sephora and always make sure I go pick mine up or get it included in an order.  Smiley Happy

You're welcome!  I went to Google Images and type in "makeup cakes" or "sephora cakes."  There are a lot of MAC ones, too.

Re: Going to get fat and go broke! :)

Happy Birthday, Kalex!!  I hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends.  Like I said earlier, at least have some birthday cake!

RE: Benefit Brow Bar -  They already discontinued it at locations inside Ulta.  Smiley Sad  I wonder why they're cancelling it completely.  The free bday brow wax is what drew me in to try them in first place.  I've been a loyal customer since.

to my knowledge, Benefit Brow Bar is actually only good the day of your birthday, not the week of.  That was literally the only thing I left the house for after I had Ashley last October.  C sections don't like you moving around too much right after.  Dan ended up driving me to it. Smiley Wink  Such a good husband.

True: It is only good the day of your birthday (unless you are a really loyal Brow Bar client, they won't make an exception)

 

Also, I am a loyal Brow Bar client (love my girl Paula!) and my birthday was just this past month so when I went in to take advantage of the free birthday wax, Paula told me that this is the last year that they will be offering this birthday promotion. Smiley Sad So take advantage of it this year ladies!!

Re: Going to get fat and go broke! :)

Ooh that cake does look good! Kalex be strong you can use discipline around food but if your going to get some cake I want a piece too!Smiley Tongue

Re: Going to get fat and go broke! :)

@kimmi - I love that cake!  Too bad we can't actually book birthday parties at Sephora complete with a cake like that one.  To heck with all the parties just for kids at places like Build A Bear.  Maybe this is something to consider Sephora!

Re: Going to get fat and go broke! :)

OMG that would be so much fun!! They use to do that with BE, you can sign up for a party and they would do makeovers but i never really used all their products at the time. 

Re: Going to get fat and go broke! :)

It is your birthday, so you deserve to treat yourself, but no one wants to go overboard.  Instead of going for the free food offers, you can always stick with the classic birthday cake.  No one is ever too old for birthday cake lol.  Although it is still not healthy (but it's good for the soul!), it is probably better than various food offers and whatnot at restaurants.  You can also share cake with family and friends.  No one turns down a slice of cake! lol.

Get % off and get X with $Y purchase are not free, and they are offered many times through out the year so rest assured you are not missing out. If they are truly free, well, no harm in getting them. =P

 

LOL, I've always wondered about the empty spoiler tags. Pffft, the smiley always look like pancake with a dollop of whipped cream to me. Hmmmm....maybe I'm gonna go get a dessert...

Re: Going to get fat and go broke! :)

I am so glad I am not the only one who though the spoiler tag looked like a pancake!  That button bugs the heck out of me! lol.
