My Favorite Shops and Coupon Codes!

I wanna introduce you lovelies to some awesome handmade shops that give me "" syndrome.

Of course this is only a handful of the many many many shops that make my heart go all a flutter. (although pretty sure fluttering hearts are dangerous, but let's make pretend for a moment that fluttering hearts are awesome, k?)
I tried to pick my most favorite shops that are also offering either "coupon codes" or "free swag" with every purchase of X amount of dolla dolla bills.

You guys ready to squeal like a 16 year old girl at a Justin Bieber Concert?

Cotton Lane

PERFECT for the young domestic diva! Sadly, I will never ever be a domestic goddess--but it's ok cause at least I can look super cute while burning toast by sporting one of her aprons!

And also? TODAY IS HER GRAND-REOPENING! she has moved from etsy to big cartel AND for TODAY ONLY you can get 10% off her super cute swag be entering code "OPENINGDAY" for 10% off.

You have all heard me gush about Alison in the past. I own about 6 of her purses. The quality is top notch. I've been sporting one of her tote bags for 4 months now and believe me when I tell you I have really tested this thing. It has survived long car rides & stuffing as much candy as I can into it so I don't have to pay $24.00 for jujubees & a small coke at the movie theater (what, you do it too!) 

Best part? Not only is Alison offering a coupon code over here, BUT you can also have a chance to win some FREE SWAG from Her too! (extra bonus: Yours truly is also included in that giveaway ;) )

Jessica N Designs

I have hearted Jessica's shop for some time now. She has the best vintage inspired "True love" swag for any couple whose getting married or celebrating an anniversary.

She is giving away her NEW vintage rose rings (pictured above) to any purchases over $50! (this offer is only good while supplies last, so I give you permission to X outta my blog and head there now)

Hannah seriously you need to follow her blog and stalk her twitter. You are welcome in advanced for the new found bond you will have with her.

Home girl makes super cute purses--and best part? She has some in the shop that are totally customizable! (I know guys I like being in control too) She has even catered to her ladies out there that are huge sport nuts BUT don't wanna look like a tom boy. Enter Hannah--she  makes these super cute "game day" inspired clutches that sport your team's colors while looking super adorbs. It's a win win if you ask me.

(I own this lovely from her, are you surprised it's yellow?)

Now I'm not saying there is or isn't a coupon code on hannah's blog, but if you watch her entire vlog where she shows off her newest game day bags I really don't think you'll be disappointed ;)

Ilene is probably one of the sweetest people I have ever encountered--which is kind of fitting cause her hair swag is pretty sweet (cheesy or awesome thing to say? Going with awesome...)

I own a redic amount from her, and I am never disappointed in the quality or customer service.

(true story: wore the look above to my job one day. One of the ladies I work with said "I am TOTALLY diggin' the bow and bun, which is great because we are always staring at the back of your head all day")

Ilene is currently on vacation, so as a "thank you for being so patient with me till I return" gift Ilene is giving all you lovelies 15% off with code "VACAY15", offer expires when she returns to her shop so GET ON THAT.
