List of things I got free this morning at Bay State Bike Week's Bike Breakfast:
- 2 bakery-fresh whole wheat rolls
- 1 bakery-fresh everything bagel
- 2 bakery-fresh corn muffins
- 1 bottle of purple PowerAde
- 2 huge oranges
- some sample Clif bars that I will pass on to MDT since they're banana bread flavored. Yuck.
- a bag of surprisingly good caramel corn
- a vegetarian breakfast burrito
- a yogurt and granola fruit parfait made with Bare Naked granola and Stonyfield Farms yogurt. Awesome.
- randomly, 2 brand spanking new copies of FridayBeth Kobliner's new book (NY Times Bestseller) Get a Financial Life: Personal Finance in Your Twenties and Thirties--which I will selflessly pass on to our beloved readers--look out for a giveaway in the next day or two.
- a new water bottle
- 2 reflectors
- 1 blinky safety light
- 1 tire gauge
- 1 mini-tire gauge on a keychain
So Thursday night, Jane and I had a fabulous time being fabulous lushes at StyleFixx Boston's Girls' Night Out. For obvious reasons (cough-we're broke-cough), we usually don't attend these sort of soirees, but we got a mad deal from Groupon--$10 for a ticket that includes 5 free drinks. Now that's about a third of what you'd normally spend for 5 drinks at a Boston bar (not including tips!), and even if we didn't get 5 drinks, we usually spend way more than $10 on a night out. Why not, right? Besides, we were looking for an excuse to get dolled up.
List of free schwag from StyleFixx:
- Red vinyl tote bag from Lola.
- sparkly pink lip gloss
- purple liquid eyeliner
- 4 cans of Bustelo Cool (delicious espresso beverage)
- a bunch of Lindt chocolates
- a huge can of salon moisturizing hairspray
- a big tub of vitamin C hair and scalp mud mask
- some high-heel scuff protectors
- weird stick-on nightime wrinkle remover patches
- various coffee, cake, and brownie samples from Finale (the highlight of the evening, as far as I'm concerned)
- a dumb magazine and a bunch of coupons for high-end salons that are still too expensive for me to ever visit
Take notes, kids.
