Groupon Coupons

Readers, you may not know this about me, but I consider myself a coupon queen.

You won’t fine me on an episode of “Extreme Couponing” anytime soon, but I do pride myself on being able to save big using coupons – especially in my weekly food shopping. (Hilariously, the coupons I have the most trouble with being scanned are usually from the supermarket itself, scanning issues caused by low ink in the machines that print them at the register.)

I always check for coupon codes before buying anything online, and see if I can find coupons to print or show on my phone before shopping at a retail location or heading to a chain restaurant.

I recently found out Groupon Coupons. You already know Groupon can save you money on experiences. (The Groupon Health & Fitness section is my favorite.)

Now, they can save you money with coupons too – often with exclusive coupons!

I can see myself using the Groupon Coupons section for Fitness & Diet and Clothing quite often. You can also search Groupon Coupons by store, like Lane Bryant, for example.

Who doesn’t like a great deal? Groupon Coupons will definitely be added to my list of must search sites before shopping.

All the Groupon Coupons are free to use and you don’t have to be a Groupon member to view them. Best part is, most coupons can be scanned straight from your phone, eliminating scanning issues at the register and saving your printer ink!

Ladies Night Out at University Station

Print

Last week, I attended a fun women bloggers night out at University Station in Westwood.

US

First, we got manicures at Miniluxe.

I’m a huge fan of Miniluxe and when I lived in Boston I had my nails done at their Newbury Street location nearly weekly. It’s great to see them have a location closer to me on the South Shore.

Next we visited Nordstrom Rack, where the manager pulled some clothes to show us examples of the brand names at discounted prices available at their store. I bought myself a new pair of flats.

Finally, we headed over to Not Your Average Joe’s for some appetizers and met with their executive chef for the whole chain. It’s a different space for Not Your Average Joe’s – but in a good way. The restaurant was packed even though it was a Wednesday night.

I’m a Not Your Average Joe’s fan – since I love that their cooking is from scratch with locally sourced ingredients. You can usually find me at the Randolph location though – so this was a nice change of pace.

Thanks to Miniluxe, Nordstrom Rack, Not Your Average Joe’s, and University Station for hosting us!

Holiday Glamour Swap at Cambridgeside Galleria

One of the things I love about the blogger community in MA is how many in person events there are where I can meet fellow bloggers. It really adds to feeling that we are a community!

Last week, Cambridgeside Galleria hosted a Glamour Swap event for bloggers. It was great to see some new faces, and spend time with bloggers who’ve become my friends.

Here are some photos from the night.

A Yankee Swap was held & I ended up with a snazy new wallet thanks to New York & Company

Jodi, Erica, & I enjoyed the photo props

A huge thank you to Cambridgeside Galleria for hosting us and the stores for donating prizes for the Yankee Swap.

I’ll be back soon to finish up some holiday gift shopping (and probably buy some clothes for myself as well).

Gwynnie Bee – Still Loving the Clothes

Gwynnie Bee: Clothing Rental Subscription Box. Sizes 10-32. 30 Day free Trial.

It’s been a few months since I posted about Gwynnie Bee and I am still loving the clothes I get sent each week!

You may remember from a previous post, I am an affiliate for the awesome clothing rental company Gwynnie Bee.

They fit sizes 10-32.

For a flat fee, they send you plus size clothing to rent. If you love it, you can keep it, for a low additional charge.

You pick every item that’s added to your virtual closet, and the size for each item. (Which is great! Ladies know there’s no such thing as universal sizing in women’s clothes.) There are size charts for each item recommending which size to choose based on body measurements.

For me, this nearly guarantees that I’ll like the dresses & tops I’m mailed. (I’ve only had 1 item that the fit was off for.)

Let me know if you have any questions about Gwynnie Bee. I love them and would be happy to talk through their process for you.

Use my affiliate links above for a 30 day free trial.

Here are some of the items I’ve been sent recently:

Triste Radiant Juniper Fit & Flare Dress

GB1

Isabel + Alice Marbled Magenta Hi-lo top

GB2

 Spruce & Sage Baroque Print Ruched dress

I love the Jessica Howard Fit & Flare Dress in Tile Check Print so much I’m thinking of buying it to keep. It has pockets!

I’ve worn it 3 times to networking/work events and it’s been a huge hit.

GB13

London Times Sheath Dress in Abstract Floral Print

GB14

Right: Jete Abstract Printed Faux Wrap dress

The above are only a small selection of the 50 clothing items I’ve been sent so far in my 3 months of Gwynnie Bee membership. I started my 1st month on the 3 items per box plan, but have upped it to a 5 items per box plan for the last 2 months.

Once you’re done with an item, you mail it back in a postage paid bag provided by Gwynnie Bee. You’ll get a new item within about 4 days of mailing an item back.

I feel fashionable every day I’m wearing a Gwynnie Bee item & it’s made my work wardrobe pretty much hassle free!

I pair the tops with jeans on weekends.

As a plus sized woman, I’m used to wearing items that fit but aren’t my style. To be able to stay stylish and professional with Gwynnie Bee is a world altering shift for the better for me! I would sing their praises as a happy customer, even if I wasn’t an affiliate.

And I do often! Even in supposedly unfriendly Boston, I get stopped by other women on the subway to ask about my beautiful Gwynnie Bee dresses. I tell them the website without getting any affiliate credit.

I also love that I pick out the clothes and get multiple items throughout the month, as opposed to 1 box of items curated by someone else like other boxed clothing services.

The clothing rental aspect of Gwynnie Bee works for me! It makes me look like I have enough clothes in my closet to be a model and I can send the items back when I want something new.
