Hold on to your hats people, I’m about to tell you how to score some duds for free.

Twice sells gently used name brand women’s clothing like J. Crew, Ann Taylor, Anthropologie, Zara, Michael Kors and more.  Right now they have a ton of easy ways to earn store credit.

Click here to sign up using my referral link, that will earn you $10 store credit.

– Download and sign in from their free iPhone app, earning you an additional $10 credit.

– Download and install the free Twice  iPad app, there’s another $10 credit.

At this point you should have $20-$30 credit on your account. If you sell clothing to Twice they’ll give you an additional $10 credit (on top of whatever you earn from your sale). Or go ahead and choose some items and place your order. Using code Survey10, you can get $10 off your purchase, which will stack with your store credit. So with that credit you could get something up to $35 and still have enough left to cover shipping ($5)!

I ordered myself a nice skirt completely for free! Not bad for a few minutes of my time. I’m gathering some things to sell to Twice now. They also have a fantastic referral program. Enjoy!

Snowkissed Cashmere Eyeshadow Palette from Skylark by Elle & Blair – This palette really is beautiful and you can never have too many of them. How about a closer look?


The Snowkiss palette comes with six eyeshadows, a nice big highlighter, and a dual ended brush. The brush is pretty decent compared to what you might find in a lot of palettes. I was a little worried because I’d never heard of the brand but the swatches I did left me feeling pretty confident.


All of the eyeshadows have some shimmer except for Lace, which is matte. Lace is also quite pale, you can see from the photo that it barely show up on me, but would make a fantastic base to build the other colors from. My favorite is Ember, which is a deep red-brown with some coppery flecks. Its really beautiful and what a bummer I couldn’t really get a good photo. Its not a color I would typically pick for myself, same goes for Shiver, but both look quite nice. I’ll have to play around with them a bit.

The Satin Sparks highlighter is very light and not something I could really swatch but it has a nice, soft glowy effect.

theBalm Overshadow mineral eye shadow in “If you’re rich, I’m single” – a nice heavily pigmented mineral shadow in a flattering bronze shade. I used the tiniest amount for my swatch and was really surprised by the coverage.swat

Plus the packaging is super cute.


This one could easily become a go-to several times a week for me. I’d never tried anything from theBalm before but I’ve read lots of good reviews. So thrilled to get this full-size eyeshadow!

Rescue Restorative Shampoo & Conditioner – Havent tried these yet but how nice to get a big set like this. I have long, thick hair so I’ll be curious to see how these do for it. They smell nice!

Hampton Sun Luxe Sport Lip Balm SPF 30 – okay, yeah, its chapstick. But its “luxury” chapstick and it smells pretty good. Plus this is something I will *always* use.

Overall, I’m really pleased with this box! Everything will be used, which is key.

Bonus: My free gift with purchase from was their Dermstore brand Lip Quench, which sells for $12. It really does moisturize and adds a nice clear gloss.


and they also threw in a sample packet of Queen Bee Firming and Restoring serum. I probably will send this to the sample pile to give away later. It has royal jelly and is marketed towards aging skin, which I dont have just yet. Well, I mean, my skin is aging, but I’m still in my early 20’s and I’m not ready to worry about it. The full size bottle sells for $85, so my sample size would be valued at approximately $5.83, bringing the total box value to $118.83. Wee! Thank you!

As of the time of this writing, still has their Mystery Beauty Boxes available for purchase.

PLUS! Mr. Rebates members get 5% cashback on purchases!

Let’s be honest; I chose this one for the name. Arden

I know, I know, I’m a total enabler, but this is way too good of a deal too pass up and you know it too.

March Fancy Box

20 Mar

I couldn’t resist the $25 off coupon that The Fancy put up a few weeks back, so I took the opportunity to snag one of their standard Fancy Boxes. It arrived today and while I have mixed-feelings about some of the items I was overall pleased with the items and received good value for what I paid.

The Box: Fancy Box (regular)

Price: $39/month + shipping

I Paid: $21.95 incl. shipping

Options chosen: Women, Home, Tech

March Fancy Box

Items Included:

  • Pilot & Captain T-shirt ($32)
  • Clocky Rolling Runaway Alarm Clock ($40)
  • Citrus Zinger water bottle ($15)
  • Crumb Casket mini-broom ($15)
  • $10 gift certificate
  • Cute Fancy stickers

Llwynog Says:

– The alarm clock is a pretty cute (and probably obnoxious) idea. I’ll probably give it as a joke gift to someone who has a harder time waking up than I do. Being a morning-person, thats not really an issue for me.

– I really like the design of the Pilot & Captain t-shirt and the faded style. Fancy was nice and sent me the “medium” size I requested but its men’s sizing, so this one’s a bit on the large size for fashion purposes. For lounge purposes, on the other hand, its perfect. The material is super-soft and cozy. LOVE.

– Citrus Zinger water bottle? I was confused by this thing when I first pulled it out of the box. Thankfully, the packaging has pictures of how to use it.


Basically, you put half a fruit (lemon, lime, orange, etc.) in the bottom compartment and water in the top. The idea being that the juicer-thing will infuse your water continuously as you drink.  I’ll give it a shot at work this week. Not sure if it will be useful or just weird. I just started a new job though, so this should be a good conversation starter.

– Crumb Casket. Hmmm. I think I might put this in a baby shower gift basket. Or something like that. Not really useful for me but it is kinda cute and tech-y.

Total retail value: $102 (not including $10 off coupon)

Totally worth the 22 bucks I paid! I did already cancel my subscription because I dont really need another one, but I would perhaps do another Fancy coupon deal. I enjoyed getting some random things that I might not otherwise think to get for myself and the value was well over the promised $80.

I probably won’t use the coupon. If anyone would like the code, please leave me a comment with your email.

DEAL! Fancy’s got another coupon happening now. Use code 25OFF5 to get $25 off anything at Fancy. You can use it on any of the box subs, you can even use it on multiple different items and get $25 off each. I love their coupons!
