FFF – Sephora and Anthropologie discounts and Baby Outings

Happy Fun, Free Friday lovelies!

Online Discount

Ebates has a great 1 day double or triple cash back offer on Friday, August 29th; log in to see the participating retailers.  A highlight is 10% back at Sephora which is great since many Sephora items don’t go on sale (but do check the sale section).  Just log onto Ebates first and then click through to the Sephora site to get your cash back.  Here is my invite if you’d like to join.

One item I’d get over and over again is Fresh Sugar lip treatment.  It’s the best lip balm ever!

Anthropologie’s sale section is on sale!   Everything is an extra 20% off for a limited time so it’s a great time to browse through the boho chic clothing and fun home decor.  I’m loving unexpected touches of lace, like the lace in this casual chic maxi skirt.

Otherwise this weekend I am…

…venturing out with the family in tow for our first outing.  We’ve been out before with the little lady, but this will be the first time it will be just the 3 of us.  My husband and I have been talking it over and we don’t want to be afraid to go out with the baby.  It is a lot harder because we have to tiptoe between her feeding and sleep schedules, but we don’t want to stay cooped up forever!  So we’re off to dim sum and I’ll report back on this Michelin starred restaurant!

What are you doing this weekend?

Have a fabulous weekend!


Target Giveaway winner and In the Kitchen: Marscapone filled cake with wine infused berries

First, a belated congratulations to…

…Debbie Roberts Clark!

You are the winner of the Target e-gift card.  Thank you for being a Twitter follower!  Please email me at cncliving{@}gmail.com with the email address where you wish to receive the gift card.  Thanks everyone for entering!


Every birthday deserves a cake.

I was researching cakes for my little one’s 100 day party and came across the “Best cakes” section on epicurious.com.  I always have to check a “Best..” section and was intrigued by this marscapone filled cake…it had me at marscapone.  I loved the color and boozy kick from the berries and this cake seemed like a great celebration of summer.  This great has a great drama and DIY element.  While I put the berries on top for the pictures, I set aside the berries and cream so our friends could make their own cake toppings.  I also didn’t whip the cream that much so it was much more of a liquid than a cream.  But trust me, your friends won’t mind and will simply put another berry on top.
