Best Birthday Freebies

fashion birthday freebies, beauty birthday freebies, free birthday perks

Happy birthday to…me! I wanted to share with you the best birthday freebies and promos that I totally plan to take advantage on this month! I usually do a google search around this time of year to find any new birthday freebies, but the lists I find always include a ton of food deals and not enough fashion and beauty perks that I take advantage of every year.  The perks of having an inbox full of company emails throughout the year is that during your birthday month you usually get a bonus email to include additional coupon codes or better yet a freebie. If you’re really committed, you could create a junk gmail account to sign up for as much as possible and check it during your birthday month or for when you want coupons 😜

These are my favorite birthday freebies I take advantage of every year:

Tory Burch:  Every year I receive a $50 credit towards anything in the Tory Store (no exclusions as far as I know and NO MINIMUM!). A few things I’ve used it on in the past include this cedar wood candle that I ended up spending under $20 and still keep it as decor in my home. Two years ago I bought these Miller flats that I wear all spring and summer long. A few years back I used it on these stud earrings (again, under $20 on my dime) for these earrings that I still wear on regular rotation in my wardrobe today. This year, I’m looking at these Minnie flats for work, but I’ll let y’all know what I decide. The good and bad about a post holiday birthday is the holiday sales (right now it’s an additional 30% off), however the inventory is also much lower until they stock up for spring. Please note, I read you have to be signed up for a month prior to your birthday to receive the promotion.

** UPDATE: I received my promotion from TB late, and they’ve changed it to a $100 minimum purchase and there are a few exclusions to look at. The cute Minnie flats are unfortunately excluded!

Kendra Scott: 50% off one item (no exclusions as far as I know) when you show them your valid drivers lisence during the month of your birthday. Last year, I purchased a bracelet that was on sale and I think it cost me $10. It would also be a great time to purchase your bridal jewelry if you’ve dreamed of wearing her pieces on your big day! I obsessed with any piece with her iridescent druzy stone. Her Elle earrings are a staple in my wardrobe and I’ve had them for over three years now. This year, I’m thinking about getting these earrnings that I’ve been eyeing for a few months!

Sephora: Signing up to be a Sephora Beauty Insider lets you track points towards samples and you get a free sample set during your birth month. Also, you typically get emails including a coupon usually in April and November which increases based on how much you spend in a calendar year.  I always get the first look at the new Sephora freebie gift. In comparison to years past, they now give you a two options to choose from. This year you can choose between a Tarte blush and lip mini or a Caudalie moisturizer and serum set. I choose the skincare set because I don’t need another Tarte blush and the lip color was too dark for me.


Starbucks: Free drink when you have the Starbucks app on your birthday (I believe it’s a three day window), so why not make it a venti 🙂 You also get 15% off your purchase in their store. Hello cute new coffee mug!

Sugarfina: You’ll get a coupon for a free cube by signing up for their emails! I recently purchased this cute box in honor of NYE and my birthday because #treatyoself

  • Strutting in this @joulesclothing dress (c/o) with one of my new #bloggerbesties @pardonmuahinsta in our matching flower crowns at #tbscon | As soon as we both introduced ourselves as Amanda we had an instant connection and felt like we had already met before! Connecting with likeminded girls is at the top of my priorities list throughout 2018. I’ve been such a homebody and stuck in my own comfort zone and it’s time to change it up!
I created a girls only private Facebook group to connect this amazing community of women here. Yes, Y O U reading this! I want you to join and hope it can become your go to place to seek advice, share your success, and feel like you’re talking to your best friends. As I slowly start to put my true self out there on social media, I’ve realized that I’m not alone in this world. We all have insecurities, weird habits, and moments to celebrate 💕 I added the new group to the link in my bio for a short period of time, but I want to keep it relatively on the DL to connect with my real squad out there 🍓.

  • I haven’t stopped listening to Taylor Swift since the concert on Friday. It was seriously the best concert I’ve ever been to! Sorry BSB and Britney 🤷🏼‍♀️ If she’s coming to your city I can’t recommend #reputationtour enough! Have you been yet??
Wearing my go to basic tee and these stretchy and comfy pink shorts from Zara! They’re not on so I can’t link the shorts but DM me if you want the link! My earrings were from a #fabfitfun box. Linking a similar look and my favorite basic tee at the link in my bio or swipe up in stories 💕.

  • My heart is so full and inspired after #TBScon and a weekend with new friends! So glad I got to meet this pretty lady  @lauren_holifield - don’t miss her stories while she’s renovating her parents house. It’s going to be farmhouse goals!
A big thank you to @joulesclothing for gifting me this gorgeous dress. I’m so glad I was introduced to their bright and colorful pieces and I’m officially obsessed💕 And thank you @ballcanning and @lacroixwater for the cutest #bloggerbrunch at @hotelatavalon | #tbscon #atlantablogger #theblogsocieties #cultivatingcommunity #hotelatavalon #lacroix #ballcanning #joulesclothing
  • Its worth getting up at 4:45 this morning when you get to eat breakfast twice 🙌🏼 It’s been a whirlwind Friday between #tbscon and #taylorswiftreputation tonight and I am loving every second 💕 Anyone else going to the Reputation tour?? I can’t wait to see me some T A Y L O R.
Click the link in my bio to shop this look. My top is only $16 and I’m wearing Valentino dupes🍓Happy Friday friends!  #liketkit
  • I challenge you to buy something way out of your comfort zone every now and then because you never know what may surprise you! This olive cropped jumpsuit was my surprise this week. Tim was even a fan and I thought he would hate it! He described it as “elegant but bossy” 🤣 Like this photo if you think he should narrate my next try on haul. Also, I have a lot of new faces around here so I just wanted to say a quick hello to my new friends👋🏼💕.
Coming to my YouTube channel this Sunday is an @oldnavy try on haul. I found so many cute basics for fall that are a heck of a lot better deal than the nsale 😜. I normally size down in Old Navy but I wanted the top to fold over the not so cute waistband.  I’m wearing a small for size reference.
My heels are a Valentino dupe from @amazonfashion and look just like the real deal! I linked the exact outfit on the shop page of my blog.
