Get Ready for Sleep with L'Occitane's NEW for Spring Relaxing Pillow Mist!

Affiliate Link Press Sample

Get Ready for Sleep with L'Occitane Relaxing Pillow Mist:
Sometimes it is just so hard to get a good night's sleep! There are so many reasons: Life stress, general insomnia, too much on my to-do list, and too much to do in the evenings. Sometimes it is just hard to get to bed on time and sometimes when I do, I just can't stop my mind fro over-thinking! 

Over the years of dealing with my boarderline insomnia, I have found a variety of ways to help encourage sleep! From diffusing sleep-inducing essential oils, to limiting screen time before bed, to applying magnesium lotion, listening to white noise, and using pillow mists: these little things really do make a difference and help me to relax before sleep! 

L'Occitane, one of my very favorite luxury skincare and body lines, has a fantastic NEW Pillow Mist! Relax with this 100% natural scent that is made of essential oils of lavender, bergamot, mandarin, sweet orange, and geranium. It is guaranteed to promote wellbeing and a good and relaxing night sleep! 

Made with essential oils, this mist can be sprayed in your bedroom to create a calming atmosphere that promotes relaxation and well-being. The scent is 100% natural.The relaxing pillow mist contains the essential oils of lavender, bergamot, mandarin, sweet orange and geranium. It has been proven to be effective at creating a soothing sensation, conducive to a peaceful, relaxing night's sleep.

I find the scent of this L’OCCITANE Aromachologie Relaxing Pillow Mist to be both fresh and soothing! I love that it is 100% natural, too. If I am going to spray something on my pillow (which my face will be pressed against all night), I certainly want it to be natural! The act of spraying this on my pillow every night is a nice little ritual. It is such a treat to myself to use such a luxurious spray at bedtime. I adore the scent and welcome the relaxation that it brings. The mist is super fine and it does not get my pillow nor sheets overly wet. I find the scent to be so soothing and stress-relieving! 

Retails for $20.00. 

L'Occitane's Aromachologie line consists of three categories of body care products: Relaxing, Revitalizing, and Rebalancing. Whenever possible, the formulas are made with naturally derived ingredients, and combine the benefits of botanical active ingredients with 100% natural aromas that have a revitalizing, soothing or rebalancing effect.

What do you do to relax at bedtime? I am always looking for tips! If you haven't already, you should check out this Aromachologie Relaxing Pillow Mist from L'Occitane

Top 8 Michael's Couponing Hacks

 Sponsored Post Affiliate Link Blogger Ambassador

This post originally appeared on the Dealspotr blog. Dealspotr is the most accurate coupon site that pays you to save. I'm @pammyblogsbeauty on Dealspotr, use my link to join today and earn 5,000 bonus points.

Crafting and DIY projects are fun, and can supposedly save you money compared to purchasing a piece of art or furniture yourself. But shopping at craft stores can add up if you're not using the right coupons - and boy are there a lot of coupons out there!

One of the biggest craft stores is Michael's. Just like its competitors, which include Jo-Ann Fabrics and Hobby Lobby, Michael's offers a plethora of coupons, and they offer them often. It can be confusing at times to sort through all of their deals, and that's why we asked our Dealspotr community - including some pro coupon bloggers - their Michael's savings hacks. Here's what they said:

Sign up for the Michael's rewards program

If you like the usual Michael's coupons, you'll love the coupons offered through their rewards program. It's like the regular coupons, but on steroids - if regular customers are getting 20% off their order, rewards members are getting 25%. Greg Doane of Money Saving Quest says there's more perks, too:
You can get exclusive savings + deals by signing up for their rewards program. For example, they just hosted a "Thank You" event for members with door busters, coupons, free class passes, etc.

Check for special "grab bags"

The next Michael's savings hack comes to us from Kecia of From Mom's Desk. Every so often, they'll offer "grab bags" filled with merchandise. You can end up getting a lot of stuff for under $5.
Always check for grab bags! They are usually located at the front of the store. They put a variety of clearance items in a Michaels bag and sell each bag for $4. I have scored some really nice stuff valued at $30+ in these bags!
Dealspotr user @savethosedollars adds this:
After the holiday look for $2 mystery grab bags. You can't open the bags in the store, but you can peek through the top and look through the plastic to see what's inside. They often contain seasonal stuff like Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter decor. You'll get a ton of crafting supplies for just $2!

Use the competition to your advantage

While there are killer Michael's coupons offered all the time, sometimes there will be a better deal offered at a competing craft store. The good news, according to One Frugal Girl, is that Michael's will accept these coupons - from stores like Jo-Ann Fabrics - with open arms. They'll price match with these stores, too.
Michael's will price match. Simply bring in a competitors ad and show it to the cashier. They can perform price adjustments right at the register. Michael's will also accept competitors coupons. Even if the coupons are from out of state stores!

Pair coupons with clearance merchandise

Both Laura of New Age Mama and Ellen of Confessions of an Over-Worked Mom had the same Michael's savings hack - check the clearance section! You can sometimes find things marked up to 90% off. Ashley, from Closet of Free Samples, adds this couponing hack:
Check your coupons - sometimes you can use them on clearance and sale items. With clearance getting up to 90% off, you can score some real savings by combining the two if you have a coupon available!

Take advantage of their classes for kids

While these Michael's couponing hacks have been helping you save money, this tip from Katy can help you save time as well. Michael's frequently offers classes on baking, painting, knitting, and other crafts. But they also offer low-priced kids classes that can give you a few hours to yourself, or that extra time you need to run errands.
Of course, I love Michael's for their coupons which can get your purchase price way down! But, my favorite "deal" they run is the classes for kids, which equals almost free babysitting while I shop! Some classes do have fees, but there are also classes where you just pay for supplies, or pay as little as $2 for a 2 hour class! Major deal!

Sign up for text alerts

The next Michael's savings hack can be done without even leaving the couch. As a part of the rewards program, you also get the option to receive coupons and deals over text. According to @Gabrielly, you can get offers of up to 70% off!
Sign up for Michael's text alerts and get more coupons. Just text “JOIN” to 273-283. You’ll get up to 8 text messages per month alerting you to special offers and Daily Deals which can save you an instant 70%.

Use the senior/military/teacher discount

If you happen to fall into one of the above categories, Emile says you can get an extra discount. Teachers earn the most, with up to 15% off! But beware - you may not be able to use any other Michael's coupons along with this discount, so check for those first before using this savings hack.
Make sure (if you fall in these categories) to take advantage of the teacher/military/senior discounts. Military/seniors can get up to 10% off and teachers up to 15% off! 

Forgot your coupon? Ask a cashier

So, you've read all of these Michael's couponing hacks. You were so excited that you raced out of the house, forgetting your coupons - and your phone. What now? According to Brittany, you can simply ask the cashier.
If you couldn't find or forgot a current coupon, ask the cashier if they have one. They do check to make sure you're in their rewards program but it can save you up to 40% of your total. (The amount depends on the current coupon.) So far, every time I've asked, they had a coupon available.
You can read more Michael's savings hacks on this forum thread. We'd like to congratulate Katy on winning the $25 Michael's gift card for sharing the most helpful and original savings tip! Check out this week's contest for Bed Bath & Beyond and enter to win a $25 gift card here.

Influenster Poppy VoxBox: Box Opening!

Press Sample Affiliate Link Blogger Ambassador
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
#PoppyyVoxBox #contest @influenster

Influenster Poppy Vox Box: Box Opening!
It is time for another beauty sample box opening! This time my sample box is the Poppy VoxBox from Influenster. I am so excited to share about these fun samples today!!! 

Hey Bloggers, have you heard of Influenster? If you are a blogger and you love trying out new products, then you should certainly scope out Influenster. Influenster is completely free for bloggers!

How it Works: Influenster sends out periodic Vox boxes across a variety of categories or "badges". Each box has a "theme" and they are packed with full-sized samples and some sample size items and coupons, too. You get selected based on your expert badges, lifestage badges, Influenster score, and demographics. These Vox boxes are filled with items and coupons for your particular category. The Vox Boxes are totally free! While Influenster seems to be sending out boxes across the blogosphere all the time, you will only get boxes that you qualify for. If you stay up to date on Influenster and participate, you will eventually get a box!

What do you do when you get a VoxBox? The idea is that each Influenster should qualify for boxes to match their interests. So, basically you just get to have fun and test out the items that you get! Influenster will send you a survey to fill out with your honest opinions. If you go above and beyond by blogging about your box, reviewing products on the Influenster site, and informing your social networks, you are more likely to get selected for future boxes. Plus, you can have the opportunity to qualify for specific brand challenges from your box as well. This has worked out really well for me! Usually the boxes indeed do have items that I have fun trying out (and therefore love to blog and tweet about).

Now lets get back to the Influenster Poppy VoxBox Box Opening! To find out all the details about what is inside this box, please click "read more" below!
