Darling Deals 8/13

  It's been quite some time since the last darling deals-what a slacker I've been. So I cooked up an extra big medium really yummy one this time!
It just doesn't get any better than fresh produce from the Farmers Market! Chipotle (Makers of the freshest,bestest most awesomest burritos.....ever) are hosting a farmers market tour and giving away a limited number of $10 in Farmers Market Tokens and tote bags at Farmers Markets all around the country! Go here for a schedule to see if there is one near you! 

Before you throw out that Sunday paper, be sure and check the coupon inserts for a coupon for a free Good n' Natural bar! That's right- totally free! I love these. Super clean, and super yummy. On a similar note, If you have a GNC nearby, go here for a coupon for a free Eat Smart bar. I've never tried these, but I'm always looking for a new healthy, yummy bar to try! All stores may not have these, so know that before you make a special trip.

     Headed to the movies this week? If you're like me you hate paying for that over-priced-really-bad-for-you-but-really-good-tasting popcorn and soda. So here's a nice little coupon that will lower the cost(if not the calories), so you can maybe forgo smuggling in your own(other people have done this too,right?).  Go here to print! Offer expires August 16th!
                If you're looking for a sweet movie that the family can enjoy, I recommend the Odd Life of Timothy Green! Got to see a special preview showing of it a few weeks ago and it was so sweet and beautifully filmed! Took me back to the days of simple movies that don't need special effects.It comes out Augus 15th! And no, I didn't get paid to say that:)

                Have any food deals we need to know about? What do you like to smuggle into the movies?

Pinspired....Nails! + a sweet deal on my favorite polish!

Before Pinterest, I wasn't even aware of all the creative things you could do with nails! I thought I was advanced because I did my own French Manicure- then I realised people were recreating Van Gogh's Starry Night on their fingertips(okay, I've yet to see this, but I wouldn't be surprised).    
       I spied this sweet idea whilst lost in pinterestland and it seemed doable for a nail novice like myself. My version is on the right(if you didn't guess) I forgot to look before I did it and later realised my heart was in a different place. I was very proud of it- until my mom asked "what happened to that nail with the white
splotch?" Ah, it's a work in progress.
                            Have you heard of Zoya polish? It's one of my favorites- they have just about every color you could want in varying levels of shimmer, pigment and shade!  They have a fun referral program called "Share The Love".  All you'll need to do is sign up for an account here. Once you do, you'll get a coupon code for a FREE bottle of polish! You'll still need to pay shipping, unless you add 2 more to your cart in which case shipping will be free! This makes for a great deal on high quality polish. Also if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you can find a button that says "create a share the love link". You can then share that link with friends, they'll also get a free bottle of polish, and you'll get points towards even better coupons like $10 or $15 off your order!!

Whats you're favorite polish brand and how do you save money on it?

Green Again...

Denim Button up ($4)-Plato's Closet, Dress ($1)-Plato's Closet,Skirt (layered underneath) $2-thrifted, Shoes($7)-Target     

                                   I really need to find a different background, all these green plants are getting real boring. My dress is from the Plato's Bag Sale I mentioned awhile ago. It was a little short so I layered another skirt underneath-my favorite trick!
                                Notice those little do-dads lost in the hair there? Yup, those are from my tutorial. I basically follow this formula about 90% of the time: bobby pins + day-old-messy-hair = sort of not so messy hair.
                             I thought I'd try the layered bracelet thing,so i put on every bracelet i have. All four of them! It looked pretty cool but I felt 5 pounds heavier and jingled all day.

                                Have any recent thriftiness (or nonthrifty indulgence??) to share? I want to know!
