Birthday Rewards, Coupons & Freebies

For anyone who was, I'm not dead. I just fell off the face of the digital earth.

My birthday was this week and who doesn't love celebrating with friends and family and getting a few gifts?! The best part is when those gifts are totally free and start rolling into your email account early. For anyone who knows me well, you know that I can't turn down a freebie! Check out this list below to see some of the best deals for birthday rewards, coupons and freebies to kick off your celebrations without breaking the bank. For some of my favorites (best deals and fave shops), check out the items in bold! Am I missing something?! Leave me some suggestions for next year in the comments!

 Olay Ultra Moisture Shea Butter Body Wash, Now at Walmart

Olay at Walmart Virtual VoxBox

As part of a contest for Influester, I tried Olay Ultra Moisture Shea Butter Body Wash. I loved it. It's super convenient because you end up moisturizing your skin while you are washing, saving yourself the time and effort after your shower to slather on lotion. For someone like me who is always on the go (and always running late) and loves spending time outdoors, in the water and in the sun, this is perfect for me. I hate wasting time to apply my body body butter after my shower and pay the price with dry skin later. Olay Ultra Moisture Shea Butter Body Wash helps to cut down on the lotion that I need, the time spent applying it, and eliminates that slimy feeling from getting in the water after lathering up.  Plus, it smells great, washes well, leaves no residue and lathers up like a dream.

Since When is it August?!

To be a total smartass about it...since Tuesday. It has been August since Tuesday.

August is busy, busy, busy for the Benjamins. 2 days later Ross and I celebrate our ultimate date night, which is the 6th anniversary of when we started dating on August 25th. 5 days after that we celebrate our second wedding anniversary on August 30th...cotton anniversary gifts anyone?! (This also means the bank should prep Ross' loan application papers now...that's a lot of gift giving in one month, let alone one week). Work is also busy, with the push to hit annual goals before the close of fiscal 2017 in September (6 deadlines in 3 weeks and counting). Luckily we have our anniversary trip to Hawaii in early September to look forward to, but that means putting our noses down and getting it done until then.
