Why pay full price to dine in Northwest Arkansas? Get restaurant discounts here!

Recently, a whole bunch of northwest Arkansas restaurants were added to the Restaurant.com catalog. That means you can go online and buy dining vouchers that will knock your bill down to around 50 percent.

Vouchers are available for most restaurants in $10, $25, $50, $75 and $100 denominations. You HAVE to spend double the amount on your voucher to get the discount.

Here are some rules to remember if you want to get the most bang for your buck: You HAVE to have a discount code. This page will always have a linked image with whatever promotion is currently going on, so always use the code. There is no need to spend $20 for a $25 off certificate when you can always get it with a discount code for a LOT cheaper. So write down the code, click through and get your cheap eats on!

I will only announce when gift certificates are at their cheapest. Here’s an offer that ends March 7:

3/6 – 3/7: $25 Restaurant.com Gift Certificates for $4!

Also, these are for dine-in only, and please, for the love of all service-industry workers, tip your wait staff as if you were paying full price. You are getting a discount on the food, not on the friendly service.

Also, you CAN stock up and you do NOT have to use the voucher the day you purchase it. I like to wait until I can get a really good deal, stock up on vouchers and just print them out as I need them. Sometimes these vouchers do go out of stock, as restaurants can determine how many of these they want to offer.

Here is a list of all restaurants in the Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers area that are currently in the Restaurant.com catalog. I’ve sorted them by city and then alphabetically. I hope you find this a useful tool worth bookmarking and sharing, and if there are any changes I don’t catch, please let me know!

Get a year’s subscription to All You for five bucks!

All You 6 issues for $1.66/issue

I’m typically not a fan of women’s magazines, but the best thing about All You is that the magazine pays for itself in SO many ways. It’s filled with coupons for stuff you use EVERY DAY, it has great and CHEAP recipes that you can make for the family, and much of its content and tips on saving money and living an easier life is contributed by its readers. I’ve seen a friend or two make it in All You and it’s so exciting to squeal and see someone you know getting a page because they’re awesome at saving money.

I also love that in every issue, there is a special page on how to wear a certain item of clothing no matter WHAT your body shape is. Whether you have broad shoulders, a bit more tummy than you want to show, or areas you want to take away from, they have great ideas on what types of cuts and styles to look for.

If you’ve never subscribed to All You before, they have an amazing introductory offer that they’ve extended into March 31, 2014: Get 1 year of ALL You for just $5! Their lowest price ever!I’m tellin’ you, that’s dirt cheap.

Easily drop 5, 10, 15 pounds... right after you eat this cake.

Easily drop 5, 10, 15 pounds… right after you eat this cake.

One slight problem I do have with All You is that it does have the awful guilt-complex cover that so many women’s magazines have. Usually there will be this GINORMOUS photo of a dessert that looks so incredibly awesome, right next to something that talks about how to get rid of those pounds. All I’m thinking of is how much walking or Wii Fit I’m going to have to do to burn off those cupcakes. But usually I don’t eat those cupcakes; I just look and drool just like I do on Pinterest!

So, hey – five bucks – why not? Check out this All You offer here.

Have a great day!

Northwest Arkansas Dining: Rolando’s Nuevo Latino, Rogers, Arkansas

Last weekend a friend and I went to one of our favorite northwest Arkansas restaurants, Rolando’s Nuevo Latino in Rogers, Arkansas. Using a $25 gift card I purchased for less than $10 from Restaurant.com, We managed to get a three-course meal for only $30!!!! Here’s what we got:

A lovely appetizer of chips and fresh, flavorful guacamole:



I had these beautiful and flavorful chicken quesadillas:



Rob had an awesome chicken dish called Pollo Bohemios:


And we finished with a dessert called Rolando’s bananas, similar to bananas foster and served with ice cream:


After using the $25 gift certificate, the entire bill for this amazing dinner was just over $30, gratuity not included. Not bad for a Saturday night meal!

What amazing restaurants can you save on in your area? Restaurant.com sells voucher-style restaurant gift
certificates, always at discount prices. For example, most $25 gift certificates always $10 or less, so already you can save $15 on a $50 meal! At this particular time, I caught a $4 for $25 gift certificates sale – so keep this site bookmarked for any future sales. (I typically wait until the sales to buy my certificates, but sometimes your favorite restaurants can sell out.)

I’m so glad to have a place like Rolando’s right in my community, and to have Restaurant.com to help make it easy for me to save money on fine dining.

Tutorial: Fun with Sally Hansen’s new Fuzzy Coat and Sugar Coat polish #iheartmynailart #cbias #shop



If you’ve wandered into the nail section of your nearest Walgreens recently, you’ve probably noticed Sally Hansen’s newest polishes: Fuzzy Coat and Sugar Coat. The Fuzzy Coat gives your nails a fuzzy appearance – much like yarn – and the Sugar Coat makes your nails look like their topped with a crunchy, candy coating. Think of your grandmother’s Divinity recipe or an iced cookie from the bakery.

I had the opportunity to try these out with my neighbor/nail gal/bff, Nails by Tammi, as well as her adorable daughter Katie. Tammi is a great mom and an amazing northwest Arkansas manicurist. Here’s Katie pictured with her Sugar Coat nails and her favorite shirt of the summer: Her Reptar tee.


I drew my summer inspiration from various Pinterest images and renderings of Sunshine. I’m not big on orange nails, so this would be a new and exciting experience for me!

So let’s begin Katie’s nails. Tammi decided to do some green polka dots on top of the Sugar Coat in Sugar Fix.

Using no bottom coat, put two coats of the Sugar Fix onto the nails. If this is your first time using textured polish, it’s gonna be weird!



Notice below how that second coat really makes a difference:



After your polish is dry, use a dotting tool, a toothpick or a Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen to add your polka dots. Using one of these instead of the brush will give the dots more precision.


Now check out Katie’s nails! White with green dots, they look like dinosaur eggs to me. What do you think? RAWWWR!



Now, let’s go to my Sunshine-inspired nail look, which I achieved with the help of the Fuzzy Coat polish in Peach Fuzz.


Since the Peach Fuzz is colored sort of, well, peach – we needed to make it have a “sunnier color.” so we did two coats of yellow nail polish on the nails first.


Then we topped it with two coats of the Peach Fuzz Fuzzy Coat.


Then, take your dotting tool/pen out and put orange dots on the very tip of the nail.


Then, take a white polish and make small white polka dots right underneath the orange ones. this will really give your nails a “sunburst” look.


You can leave the Fuzzy Coat as-is or put a top coat on it for th efuzzy look, but not the texture. I loved the look of the polish but not the texture, so I opted for the top coat.


And this is how your nails will look at the end: Like a bunch of little rays of sunshine on your hands!



Might I add that the shine from the top coat really added to the “sunny” theme. photo (16) These nails have been a lot of fun; I’ve been wearing them for a few days and the polish has stayed on extremely well! They’re also like nothing I’ve ever seen before on nails.

To see what others have done with the textured and other Sally Hansen polishes, check out the I Heart Nail Art app on Facebook.

Also, check out these great deals on other Sally Hansen products at Walgreens:

  • TLC: Xtreme 2/$4 (month of July)

  • BOGO 50% on Magnetic, Nail Miracle Growth, and Crackle (month of July)
