15% Off Feral Watches + Review (Love These!)

feralwatches49smaller

I was sent a link to these unique, expensive looking watches a while back and instantly fell in love with the style. Each watch is inspired by “sandy toes, salty hair, and sun kissed face” – you can feel this inspiration in their style and I LOVE it! Totally me. I quickly asked the company if  I could review “The Jane” watch. A few emails and months later, two gorgeous watches (one black and one brown) arrived in my mailbox. It felt like Christmas! I was so excited!  I knew I would like the style but was nervous the leather quality wouldn’t live up to the design.

Well, needless to say, the watches lived up to my every expectation and my favorite brown “Jane” (which is more camel-ish) has not left my wrist since ( a full week)! I wanted to wear it for a few days so I could give an honest review. I love love love it and I’m not just saying that because the nice people at Feral allowed me to review their product. The leather is great (I’m a leather snob), the watch works, it’s water resistant, and more importantly, it looks good after wear.

I don’t wear a ton of jewelry (non really) but I love a good watch, and this is a good one. I get a compliments almost everywhere I go. It’s different, a little eclectic, but classy at the same time. I’ve worn it with everything from jeans to a maxi dress, and I think it worked.feral

Thank you Feral!! And just because they wanted to share some of the love, Feral is offering 12% off your next order with coupon code dq15. Prices start at just $35, so you can grab one for as low as $29.75. They would make a great birthday or Mothers day gift

Why This Grill Rocks

The Obvious

  • This grill is obviously one of the “hottest” grills on the block. It’s sleek, and includes a gorgeous granite counter. Hey pretty baby…
  • A built in trash? Heck yes! I love that you can throw a little trash bag in the trash container hidden under the grill. No more back and forth inside the house to throw away hot dog wrappers, broken skewers etc.
  • 5 Burners-5 Burn-ers. Did you catch that? That means a whole lot more grilling in a lot less time. Woohoo!!
  • Electric Ignitor

Getting All James Bond

What you may not know, but what I consider to be my favorite parts about this grill…

  • Infrared Rotisserie Burner-You heard right, this grill is about to change your life forever. You have a build in infrared rotisserie located at the back of the grill. Oh my gosh, I’m starving already.
  • Built-in halogen lights and LED control panel lights
  • A warming rack so you can constantly be adding more to the grill
  • Natural Gas Conversion!!

 

This grill is seriously crazy amazing. It’s our favorite one to use because it’s easy (NBD if you don’t have matches, the thing starts itself), it looks amazing, and it works like a gem. Seriously, we have not had a single problem. I cannot tell you how much Mr. Handsome loves it. I mean, the guy calls it his, “Baby”. It’s unreal. And yet, I totally get it.

Tips & Tricks: Avoiding Email and Facebook Spam

spam image

We recently received an email from a reader concerned about Facebook coupons and spam email. Her letter was much like a number of other we have received in the past. So, we thought we would address this topic and share with all of you how we deal with some of the spam and junk mail that seems to part of the coupon-printing experience.

The only real way to avoid companies and manufacturers from bombarding your inbox with advertising is to simply not release you email. This means you wouldn’t be able to receive newsletters (legit ones with coupon savings) and you also wouldn’t be able to sign up for many of the Facebook offers or contests. This is a total bummer for a serious couponer! So, we’ve come up with a few ideas on how to help ease the frustrations while still getting you hands (aka printers) on the goods.

  • Use a different email address for coupon offers, sweepstakes, brand newsletters, etc… This is a very easy and simple fix that should eliminate a ton of stress. Email addresses are free and easy to acquire. Save your main email for family and friends (and work if needed), and use a second email for all coupon related subscriptions.
  • Use a separate Facebook account for “liking” companies and brands. Same concept as above, just substitute “Facebook account” with “email address”. This will save you from feeling like your personal life is being invaded or bombarded with offers and advertisements.
  • “Unsubscribe.” So smart, I know :). If you really want to participate in an email offer, but the company forces you to subscribe to a newsletter, it’s not that big of a deal. If it’s a legit business (you want to be sure it is), you’ll find a link at the bottom of the newsletter that says “unsubscribe.” Legally they are obligated to provide this option. Just click it.
  • Verify the business before you sign up! If it’s a brand, company or web site that you are unfamiliar with, you can verify it’s legitimacy in a few ways. Type the business name into the Better Business Bureau. Not all legitimate business are registered with the BBB, but it’s a good start.  You can also check out web-based business by searching the domain name registry using WHOIS. Also, look around the website for contact numbers, this can be an indicator that the business is customer service oriented (though not always).

*Side Note*
Second emails or Facebook accounts don’t have o be “fake” or fradulant. They are still owned and operated by you and can still be a reflection of you as a consumer. I actually love checking my “junk mail”. It’s one of the main ways I find great deals and sales!

Do have any other tips to share? Please let us know how you avoid the spam and scams, just leave a comment below!
