Groupon BeautyNow: A Busy Mama’s Best Friend (+ A Giveaway!!)

This post has been sponsored by Groupon; as always, all opinions are entirely my own.

Well, you guys. I did it. I finally got my eyebrows done. 

I’ll let you in on a little secret. I haven’t had them done in…oh, about 3 years.

Yikes. Why so long? 

You know those two pretty adorable little people who sometimes make an appearance on the blog? Well, they require kind of a whole lot. Like, all the time. I mean, they want to be fed.  Multiple times a day. And they need baths. Often. They’re my full time job and are surprisingly demanding little bosses. (Not to mention all of the time it takes to make sure they grow up to be kind humans.) 

All of that momming leaves very little time for me. And before now, what free time I could carve out, I’ve always reserved for my hair appointments. Because priorities. 

Plus, the whole idea of trying to figure out where to go to get my brows done, and then PICKING UP THE PHONE to make an appointment. Is there anything worse as a stay at home mom than to try to make a phone call? (NOPE.)

Enter: Groupon BeautyNow. 

You’ve all heard of Groupon, right? They’ve recently launched Groupon BeautyNow, a service that allows easy salon appointment booking, all through their app. (NO phone calls. WHAT.)  If you’re based in Chicago, just download the Groupon app and select ‘Salon & Spa Booking’ at the top to start booking.

It’s SO simple to use. First, search for the type of appointment you need and it will show a list of salons and spas in your area. Then, choose the date and time that works best for you. (There might even be a discounted rate available. Yay.)

If you’ve already installed the Groupon app on your phone, click here to go straight to the experience + book your appointment using the code SWEET10 to receive $10 your first booked service! 

As soon as you book, you’ll get confirmation of your appointment. 

Oh, and did I mention you pay through the app and they won’t charge you until after your appointment? So that means no weird tip exchange and trying to figure out who to give it to, when to give it, etc. (Is it just me or does that stress anyone else out, too?)

It’s currently available in the Chicago metro area, so my local girls – take advantage and schedule something for yourself. (And if you need your brows done, I highly recommend Anna at Red Door in Deerfield!)

Don’t forget! You will receive $10 off your first booked service with code SWEET10. 

AND…be sure to head to the bottom of the post to enter to win a chance to win FREE salon + spa services for a YEAR!

Happy Wednesday, sweet friends.

Now…go pamper yourself! 


Coffee in peace.

Anna working her magic.

The finished product. Ahhhhh.
