Here's to Summer, y'all!
Everyone wants fun and tasty treats for summer, and I would like to help. One of my key apps for grocery shopping, ESPECIALLY in the summer months when kids are hot and hands are grabby, is Ibotta. Y'all have probably seen the button the sidebar for a while, and I've been given the BEST opportunity to work with them to bring YOU more deals, sooner.
For anyone not signed up already, I'll help you answer any questions you have!
No two people are alike, and Ibotta can work for anyone. The casual spender, the hardcore couponer, absolutely anyone. Just take your phone with you, and you can scan IN STORE to see if a product fits a rebate, before you buy it!
I like to look at Ibotta before leaving home, to get an idea of what I want. Then I get there, and check out the prices for all the rebates available. If I can add up the rebates I know I'll get, I can often add more to my cart that will ultimately be paid for by rebates!
Yes, but what's the Summer Bonus?
Summer is finally here and that's a reason to celebrate! Redeem $3.00 in rebates and earn an extra $1.00 from(6/23) through (6/26)
If you're not already, sign up for Ibotta by clicking the image below! And, if you EVER have any questions about how to use Ibotta, or are just looking for tips on how I personally use the app to maximize my household savings, feel free to contact me anytime! I'd love to answer questions, or help you out as part of my awesome team!

June Friends and Family Surprise #1
June Friends and Family Surprise #2
June Friends and Family Surprise #3
I'd like to take this chance to offer up a moment of silence before we all head off to our Memorial Day festivities, and remember the fallen and fighting that have done so for our freedom and safety of mind on weekends just like this one. This is one of those days I will always treasure, with a family and life blessedly full of servicemen and women. Always in our hearts, and minds. Thank you. <3
And, in honor of this holiday weekend, Julep has again put forth a fantastic deal for us all to take advantage of! Mystery boxes: With hints! There are 10 available total, as follows. There is a guarantee of NO polish or product overlap, so if you're brave enough to spring for all 10 semi-mysteries, you won't be stuck with 10 of the same thing. Yay!!
Comment below if you go for any of these beauties! I'm still trying to figure out which one I want myself. xD
Mystery #1 Clue: Tips in top shape
To kick start the group is a beautiful big box, that includes the glitter topper pictured at left, 'Taryn' and the mint clutch pictured above, amongst many other products valued in total at $143!!!
Mystery #2 Clue: This one is clutch
Continuing in the large-box section of mystery boxes available, this one features the immensely popular Blush in 'Peach Bellini' AND corresponding weighted handle blush brush with the cute glam clutch bag! Including the mystery products, this one is valued at $144!
Mystery #3 Clue: Life's a beach
If big fancy boxes and bags aren't your style but you still want quality in quantity, this box features the just-in-time-for-summer must have product, 'Beach Tonic Dry Body Oil'. This oil and its mystery friends are valued at $101!!
Mystery #4 Clue: A healthy hi-five
This one is personally tempting me, as it is a box valued at $102, and includes BOTH the 'Vanish cuticle softener & remover', AND the actual 'Cuticle pusher' tool! Very good deal, if I do say so myself! [Spoiler alert: I do ;D]
Mystery #5 Clue: So fresh & clean
A highly rated favourite by Mavens, featured in this box is the 'Bare Face Cleansing Oil' And the award winning 'Konjac Sponge'! This box's value is at $102 as well, but it certainly won't cost that much!
Mystery #6 Clue: This box was made for walkin'
Another personally tempting box, this one features Julep's foam toe separators, and the 'Mint Condition Pedi Creme', that many have raved and rated as a 'must have' for their pedi regime! This box has a value of $42!!
Mystery #7 Clue: Sparkle & Shine
This cute box features two hot metallic shades, including the chrome-like titanium shine of 'Missy' [left]!!
This box's contents are valued at $42 as well!!
Mystery #8 Clue: Breathe easy
If you missed out on June's hot new Oxygen base and top coats, you might want to consider this one! Not only do you get the HOT cherry pie red 'Sheila' [left], but you get Julep's 'Oxygen Nail Treatment'! [And more? ;D] Valued at $46, this box is as hot as this red!
Mystery #9 Clue: Splatter & Smooth
If you're into hard-to-nail colours, the cool periwinkle blue of 'Talor' might just right up your alley, along with the rest of this $30 value box! Bonus: You get a cute gift bag with it!
Mystery #10 Clue: File under guava-licious
And last but certainly not least, this final box is valued at $33 and contains the hot new spicy-coral 'Harriet', among others, and you also get to keep this cute gift bag! These are GREAT for re-gifting, or using later as party favors!
If you're interested in any of these hot mysteries, get in there quick! Not only will they sell out before too long, you have less than 48 hours to get them while they ARE stocked!!
And, as usual, I will have the awesome Secret Store for June up for you next week!

Julep has outdone themselves again. From now until the 12th, you can purchase any one [or more! ;D] of three Mystery Box styles. One lucky winner of each style will have a polish named AFTER THEM! Or, you know, someone near and dear to your heart. *cough cough*
For only $24.99 each, these are guaranteed not to have any overlap with the other two styles, AND the polishes and products inside them have never been in a mystery box so far this year!!!
Get them while you can, because these are selling faster than a Wonka bar!
IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN!
I'm so so SO excited for this month's Secret Store. It's by FAR the best in a very long time!!!
***Update: Full list updated, links and all! Emma is not showing as valid, so I have removed it at this time.
Excited? Yes! Tomorrow the Secret Store opens for EVERYONE. Get in and get yours now; Strawberry Shake is already SOLD OUT. That means any of your favourites could be gone by waiting until tomorrow!!
If you know me, you know I LOVE and LIVE for two things. Nail polish, and Coffee. LOVE YUM.
So, it should be no surprise I felt like doing a coffee-inspired mani today! I went for a french-tip based mani, using Julep's Cynthia for the fancy Cafe, and Julep's Fiore for the DELICIOUS looking chocolate drizzle. Best part? BOTH are available for YOU to buy! Get crackin', I want to see more of these gorgeous manis out there! ;D
And don't forget! If you're not already a Maven, now is THE TIME to do so!! Slashed shipping costs on the FREE Welcome boxes, and a new and improved Maven Subscription program!!!
With this blog, you can expect to see reviews, impressions, tips, inspirations, deals, and more. If there is something specific you would like to see, don't hesitate to let me know!
