Treatsie Review March 2015 and Free Box Coupon Code!

Treatsie is a monthly subscription site costing $19.95 after shipping costs, they sent artisan and unique treats from independent U.S. retailers.

This is my first Treatsie box and i'm happy to say it was well worth the money! I must note that I DID use the promo code for double sweets in my first box, so this box has more items than normal subscriptions. But fear not, if you use the code FRBUCO01 then you can also get double the items (for first time subscriptions only). Or you can get your first box free with the code FIRSTBOX22 (i'm not sure when this one expires though).

On to the snacks!

Quin Fruit Lillipops in 4 different flavors $4. I haven't tried these yet, I don't really like hard candy/lollipops so I will be gifting them.

Avenue Sweets Gourmet Caramels (i'd say this about a $5 value at least). These are amazing, there was a salted caramel flavor, and a cappuccino and dark chocolate.

Emoticandy (fruit flavors) $7. I haven't tried these yet, I'm not a fan of hard candy so I'll be gifting these.

Lambrecht Southern Pecan Toffee - This is DELICIOUS! $6.50

Stick Toffee Pudding Co. Millionaire Shortbread $3.50 - This was really good, but the Texas heat made it a little messy to consume.

J&M Foods Triple Chocolate Cookies $8 - loved the texture of these, perfect with my morning coffee.

Zingerman's Candy "What the fudge" bar $6. This is HEAVY stuff, I can only eat a little piece at a time, so it's well worth the price.

Overall i'm happy with the selection I got and the value is superb, but i'm expecting to only get 4 snacks in my next box since I had used the "double" treats promo code on this one.

Stitch Fix Coupon/Promo Code!

I haven't posted in awhile but I've been having great experiences with Stitch Fix! This is a subscription service (you can skip months, or decide how frequent you want to receive your fixes) that sends you clothes and accessories according to your preferences, and you keep what you want and return the rest. You will be charged for what you keep with the $20 styling free subtracted from your price.

I've gotten all of my favorite basics and statement pieces from StitchFix and now my closet is slowly starting to become what I've been wanting for years!

If you want your first styling free waived, here is the coupon code/link riskfreemarch Let me know what you think!

This is a skirt I got last month from them :)  Make sure to be specific with you're preferences, and even make a pinterest board of the styles you like, this will help your stylist choose the best pieces for you.

Mint Jeans!

I recently found a pair of mint skinny jeans from Urban Outfitters for $20, I wasn't sure how to style them so I haven't worn for awhile. Here is what I decided to do to make my mint jeans perfect for Summer while not being overly dramatic or hipster!

Tie top - Marshalls ($10)

White Button Up - Marshalls ($12), Boden sweater vest from Savers ($2.99), Polka dot wedges from Shoe Central ($5)

What do YOU wear with mint jeans? Do you have any other colored jeans you wear in the Summer?

Retro Refashion!

A couple of weeks ago I won a vintage dress from ebay for $6 (with $6 shipping), so a total of $12. I knew I'd have to alter the sleeves since I don't like long sleeved dresses. However I didn't know I'd have to alter it THIS much!! It was HUGE on me! But anyway, I wanted to share my before and after product:

I altered the sleeves, took in the sides, and then put a couple of pleats in the back to tighten the back area. I was feeling guilty for buying a vintage/thrift store item for $12, when I know I could get it for much cheaper elsewhere. But now i'm excited I got a project out of it as well!

Giveaway! $10 JewelMint giftcard

I recently used JewelMint's 2 for the price of one code ($29.99) and got some of the best pieces i've ever owned. I love these two items and I wear them almost daily even though they are statement pieces (there are also more simple things on the site for those of you that prefer that.)

While this is a monthly subscription service, you can skip each month (or cancel if you would like!) before the 5th of each month. Otherwise you will get charged a credit in your account for $29.99 to spend on the site in whichever way you which. This is expensive for one piece of jewelry, but luckily there are always codes and coupons going around! So here is a $10 gift card for one of my lucky readers to try out this service :)

US citizens only.
