As part of the Mom it Forward Blogger Network, I was compensated for this post.
Remember last year when I invited you to Fight the Frump? We took a week and I challenged you to first get dressed (no yoga pants and baggy T-shirts!). Then I encouraged you to find clothes that fit and flatter, to buy great undergarments, and to find some accessories.
Honestly, we women spend so much time hating our bodies, and yet spending just a few minutes putting on things that make us feel put together can give us a blast of confidence, which has repercussions even in our marriages. When we feel better about ourselves, we’re more energetic. We’re more motivated. And we’re often friskier!
So when Mom it Forward asked if I’d like to review some products from andRuby, an awesome new deal site I found, and give you all a chance to win a $75 gift certificate, I said yes because I think we all need a little push to fight that frump once again.
Oh, and I also really liked the necklace they were offering! It’s normally $50, on for just $7.99. Here I’m wearing it:
And here it is on my oldest daughter (who is hanging out with me in Kansas City while I’m getting ready to speak at the MOPS conference tomorrow!)
At andRuby their product is always changing. You get awesome deals–as much as 80 or 90% off in some cases–but it’s always unique stuff. When you sign up for their newsletter, you’ll get the inside scoop when they have new items being added.
I’ve been browsing through their site, and here are some other lovely things I found:
I know many of my readers LOVE maxi-skirts, and here’s one that’s available in black and teal. Normally $47, on for $16.99
You get three curling wands in one! You get a flatiron, but then also a curling set with three different sizes. Normally $250, on for $89.
This is gorgeous! And it’s 88% off. Normally $39, on for just $5!
Teach your kids they are beautiful–just the way they’re made! Normally $20, on for $8.99.
This sits at just the right length, and brights up any top! Normally $40, now $15.
This baby headband flower is adorable! Normally $7, on for $3.
Their items are made by individual merchants, and I received my necklace in a lovely box, all done up with black ribbon. It was quite spectacular for a necklace that is on such major sale (from $50 to $7.99). The site offers a chance for merchants to connect with new customers, so each deal is very time limited. The benefit, though, is that from home decor to jewelry to clothing to kids’ items, there’s always something new and fun to find–at a price that won’t kill your pocketbook.
I’m a big fan of jewelry, because a beautiful necklace can dress up a T-shirt and help you feel so much more “put together”. If you want to fight the frump, sometimes all it takes is a necklace to make you go “pop”!
And they’ve given us all a coupon code you can use to get 10% off–good until November 30. Just use the code love at andRuby.
