When’s the last time you took some time for you and got a massage, facial, or even a pedicure?  I’m guessing you just muttered something under your breath about not having time because that’s pretty much my answer for everything these days! If it’s not the lack of time for “me”, it’s the fact that I really shouldn’t be spending that kind of money on myself, since I have a daughter who’s always in need of something! I sometimes come across coupons for services but honestly, who wants to actually cut out a coupon, bring it with you, and remember to use the coupon?

Enter UnBOOKed Appointments….

unBOOKed-newI had never heard of UnBOOKed Appointments until recently! It’s so convenient for a busy, working mom like me. Basically, it’s an online community that partners with local businesses to to create a marketplace for you to FIND and BOOK confirmed appointments for beauty, health and home services. If you have the flexibility to come in during their slow times, then they’ll offer their services at a great price without the hassle of redeemable coupons. offer services at discounted prices. It’s like an online happy hour!

servicesUnBOOKed currently offers services from providers in Orange County, LA, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego. There are also some offered in Knoxville, Tennessee and Miami, Florida. Their goal is to grow nationally though.

You can choose from services in the following categories:

  • Beauty and Spas

When you visit the unBOOKed site, you can choose from a pull-down menu of categories to browse or put in a desired area. Then browse to find amazing deals at these local businesses.

(Gratuity is not included in the price and of course, always appreciated at the time of service).

bookedSo I did it! I booked myself an appointment and had some “me time“!  I picked a location right by the beach, too! I had the most positive experience with unBOOKed and was so happy with my services too! I thought it was pretty useful to not only receive an email after I paid for my appointment on the site, but also to receive a reminder email and text on the day of my actual appointment! That’s especially helpful for times when I get “mommy brain”..you know, when you can’t remember what you even ate for breakfast? Reminders are good!

text-reminderHere’s the good news…UnBOOKed has given me a few special codes to give away to five of my readers! Each is good for $20 towards your first appointment. How awesome is that? If you’d like one of these codes, just comment on this post about what your favorite way to pamper yourself is! Then, leave your email address so I can email you your code. Once you have your code, just create your account on UnBOOKed, book an appointment, and when it asks for your code, enter the one I send you! If you go, you’ll have to come back here and tell me how it was!
