50+ Birthday Discounts & Freebies

Hey Butterflies! It's Cancer Season and guess what? That's right, it's my BIRTHDAY or as Tom from Parks & Recreations would say, it's my "treat yo-self day". If you've had the pleasure of knowing a Cancerian then you probably already know that we enjoy our space and can be very introverted and emotional at times but are usually the most thoughtful and caring people you'll probably ever meet. We are water signs and are typically ruled by sensation and feelings. Anyway, I haven’t really celebrated my birthday since my 30th birthday but in honor of my birthday and cancer season in general I'm sharing with you some of my favorite birthday discounts and freebies. I prefer some birthday perks over others like the "free beauty product" at Ulta or the "free drink or meal item" at Starbucks because these are places I frequent and that are near my home/work. If you have the time (I don't lol), you could basically celebrate your birthday for a month straight using these birthday offers, all while saving a few bucks in the process. To redeem these offers be sure to signup with each company first (at least a month in advance), some of these offers might be exclusive to the Houston, TX area but it won't hurt to check it out.

Whitening Teeth at Home With Smile Brilliant

This is a sponsored post.

Hey Beautiful Butterflies. Prior to trying out Smile Brilliant the only whitening product I used as part of my daily routine was whitening toothpaste. However, in the past I’ve tried whitening strips and a whitening rinse but saw very little results. I’m not really a coffee drinker but I do drink a lot of tea and enjoy an occasional glass of wine and eat berries almost daily. Since most of what we eat and drink has the potential to stain our teeth over time, using a whitening product is a must if you want to look and feel your best when you smile. Currently the #1 dentist recommended teeth whitening method is using custom-fitted whitening trays. Using whitening trays ensure that every angle of every tooth (regardless of whether your teeth are straight or not) receives even and consistent coverage of our professional strength whitening gel. Smile Brilliant offers custom-fitted whitening trays for 70% less and up to 5x faster. The average U.S. dentist charges $500+ for the exact same service.

Celebrate National Masturbation Month with Sweet Vibrations

This post contains adult content and is intended for readers 18 years of age or older. This is a sponsored post that contains affiliate links.

Hi Butterflies. In case you didn’t know, it’s National Wankers Month (lol)! I feel like this is another topic that society has made so taboo that no one wants to talk about it although it’s a natural part of life and when it’s done in moderation (like most things), it can be a healthy alternative to self medicating for stress/anxiety issues and a healthy alternative to sex it self because let’s face it, making the decision to have sex comes with risks. Not too long ago I shared with you guys a few ways you could show yourself some love and enjoying some alone time with your body made the list. I like to think of masturbation as an important (not vital) part of my self care routine and if you really think about it, our sexual health is a part of our self care.
