Birthday Freebies!

Happy Monday loves!

Hope you all had a great weekend. Can you believe we’re only one week away from Halloween?! This year has been a blur!

I wanted to change things up a bit and post Birthday Freebies since this week might be a Birthday theme. Yes, you guessed it: It’s my birthday today! 😀

Beauty Freebies:

* Sephora: come in 2 weeks before your birthday and get a free gift, every year it changes!

* Ulta: 2x more points when you shop at Ulta during your birthday month. On the day of your birthday, you’ll get an email about picking up your gift. This year I got an IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara sample.

* Charming Charlie: If you sign up with their emails, you can get a $5 off any purchase. Last year I ordered online and this year I went into the physical store and bought more! A little tip: go towards the back of the store and look at the clearance section along with any product that has a red sticker=more deals!

* Sally Beauty: It’s not technically a freebie, but you can get a coupon for $10 off a purchase of $20. Still a really good deal in my opinion!

* Bath and Body Works: if you download their new app, you can get a free travel size product.

* CVS: During your birthday month, they’ll send you a $3 ExtraCare Reward Bucks to spend on anything your heart desires.

* DSW: Sign up with DSW Rewards and get $5 off any purchase.

*Kohls: Sign up with the Kohls Yes To You Rewards program and get a $5 voucher on anything in the store.

*Godiva: Sign up with their rewards system and get a free piece of chocolate every month and for your birthday month, you’ll get a $10 off any purchase.

*Jamba Juice: Sign up with their rewards and get a free juice or smoothie.

* Nektar Juice Bar: Sign up with their rewards and get a free ginger shot for your birthday. Sounds intense I know, but so so worth it! No one wants to get sick around their birthday.

* Starbucks: A free drink, any size or even a sandwich. The possibilities are endless!

* Rubios: A free meal up to $7.

* Red Robin: A free burger, who can go wrong with that?!

There’s way more freebies for your special day but I posted the ones worth mentioning. hehe

Am I missing anything else that I haven’t mentioned?!

Coffee Code Review

Hi loves!

I hope you all are enjoying November! Is it just me or are the days going by so quickly?

I wanted to start doing reviews on restaurants and places I indeed believe people should know about! I recently went to a coffee shop called Coffee Code located in Buena Park, CA (across from Knotts Berry Farm)  and this definitely is different type of cafe. It’s not what I expected at all. Once I walked in, I was overwhelmed by the scent. It smelled of sweets and coffee. Such a daring mix!

THE INFO:

Name: Coffee Code

Address: 7855 La Palma Ave, Suite 6, Buena Park, CA 90620

Hours: Monday-Saturday 11am-11pm

Sunday-11am-10pm

Yelp: www.yelp.com/biz/coffee-code-buena-park

 

THE DECOR:

From the outside, it doesn’t look like much but when you walk in, the walls are red with quotes and drawings. There’s one awesome quote that says:

Sweet and hot coffee makes me sing,

A piece of cake makes me laugh,

Chocolate covered donuts makes us happy

Come and share with me.

cute quote

There’s also a TV in the corner (which I never noticed playing), you can’t help notice the LOVE shown under it. It’s so romantic! ❤ This is definitely a great place for a first date.

love

 

I do love how in the corner there is a table that has more sugar, creamer and napkins in case you do need it. But when I first noticed the table, I saw the two plaques that had coffee quotes on them! One read: “Coffee made me do it” and the other one read: “Dear Coffee, I love you. That is all.”

Of course the lights!

The COFFEE:

I’ve came here already twice in one week, that’s how much I love the coffee and the art!

First time I came here my friend had ordered the peppermint white mocha and I had ordered the caramel latte. I definitely am in love with the latte art. It’s such a cool creative concept and it is pretty cool to see the baristas doing it. The coffee itself is awesome, a tad bit strong but pretty tasty.

THE MENU:

Just like any other coffee shop, there’s much more than coffee. They have their famous french toast and waffles that can feed 2 or 3 people! They also have iced coffees, frappes, smoothies, and teas.

PRICE RANGE:

Both times I came here, I ordered 2 drinks and paid about $10 total. I hoenstly think this is more of a splurge 🙂 I will have to try the desserts next time though.
