New Years Resolution: Use Ebates!

Image
Happy Holidays! Hope Santa was good to you all - it was a crazy holiday for us, and now I can't believe it's almost 2015. Wow - where has the year gone? Seems like it was last week when we were all making New Years resolutions for 2014. 

Today, I wanted to talk about Ebates - the world's largest FREE website offering you cash back for online shopping. It's so easy - you sign up free (use my link HERE). Then every time you shop online, start at the Ebates website to link to your favorite retailer website. Often times, there are special or promotional cash back percentages for a limited time. In addition, you will occasionally find very nice coupon codes for your favorite retailer. All this helps to save you money - and that quarterly cash back check is pretty nice. :-) 

Speaking of that cash back check, you can opt for a paper check (this is what I do) or have your rebates sent to your Paypal. As a matter of information, you can see my numbers above. I joined Ebates sever…

Black Friday Beauty Bundle from Younique

Happy Thanksgiving! How are you celebrating the day? We are visiting family in Mobile. My house smells wonderful this morning, as sweet potato souffle and corn casserole are currently in the works. Those two dishes are always my contribution to the family Thanksgiving meal.  

Have you started holiday shopping? I have to admit, I'm a little later than normal getting started this year. Over the past two days, I have picked up a few gifts. It's finally setting in - Christmas will be here very soon! 

Throughout the holiday season, I will be blogging about my favorite things and sharing deals with you all. Hope you enjoy the posts - it's going to be a lot of fun for me. I have missed blogging and am glad to be back. 

Today I start with the Black Friday Beauty Bundle from Younique. Many of you might recall, I am an Independent Presenter with Younique and use all of their products. The 3D Fiber Mascara is the product that started it all for me - I tried it once and was hooked! Now I…

Shopaholic Returns - Anyone Out There?

A big hello to you all! How is everyone doing? It's been so long since my last blog post...

I am planning to return to regular blogging, but I wanted to ask a question first. Do you still read blogs? Has Instagram replaced a traditional blog? I would love to blog again, but I don't want to talk to myself! HA! And I have lots of things I'd like to throw out there for discussion. Comment and let me know! I can't wait to hear what everyone has been doing. 


Sex And The City - 10 Years Ago?

Image
Happy Monday! Just dropping in for a moment to say, I can't believe it's been 10 years ago since the series finale of Sex and The City. Wow - where does the time go?

Of course, we've all seen both of the movies that Carrie Bradshaw and friends have produced since the series ended. I always wanted Carrie and Big to have their happy ending, and was so glad they did. 

Thanks Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha for all the fun memories! And a big thank you for reminding everyone of various fashion crimes - the "scrunchy" was always one of my favorite SATC moments. 

More than anything, thank you for reminding us that relationships with spouses, boyfriends or girlfriends, and significant others may come and go - but our friendships never go out of style. Cheers to having a fantastic group of girlfriends, I'm so thankful to have mine. 

Have a wonderful day.

Hello Everyone! Hope this post finds you doing great and staying warm. Who is else ready for Spring?!? Down here on the Alabama Gulf Coast, we are anxiously awaiting warmer weather. It's been a crazy winter for us all, we were impacted here in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Who'd have thought we'd have an ice storm at the beach? Not me! Never thought I'd see the day.  

You might wonder where I've been, since I haven't updated in forever. Well, you know --- working, working, and working some more. Cleaning out closets, dealing with mortgage loans 10 hours a day, 4 days a week, commuting 10 hours per week, doing Couch-to-5K training, trying to get the house ready for spring and beach visitors, etc, etc. Sounds fun, doesn't it? I am going to be updating more frequently now, as I have really missed blogging. I hope you will still read and haven't totally forgotten that I exist. Blog land can be a strange place sometimes, so please stick with me. 

I'm excited to sh…
