Triple Your Cash Back This Holiday Season with Swagbucks

I am sharing the following information c/o Swagbucks, where I am a long-time member. This post contains my referral link and I may earn a SB bonus for sharing this post. Any opinions expressed are my own.


Most of us have some sort of cash back rewards on our credit or debit cards. Every time we use them, we get a percentage back in the form of cash or redeemable points that we can save in our rainy day fund, or use to splurge guilt-free, depending on your personality. But you may not know that, with Swagbucks, you could be multiplying those cash back rewards without changing anything about your credit card or spending habits. As you finalize your holiday shopping plans, don't miss out on this chance to double, triple or even quadruple your cash back from online shopping!

Here's how it works - Swagbucks, which always offers great cash back on major online retail sites throughout the year, is doubling their rewards for the entire holiday season. But wait - On Black Friday (Starting 8pm ET on November 26) and Cyber Monday (November 30) they are offering Triple Cash Back at a huge range of featured online stores, think Walmart, Target, Barnes & Noble, etc. - plus a wide range of specialty businesses to choose from in order to find the perfect gifts. All you have to do is click on the retailer's link from Swagbucks and shop from there - that's it! Keep using your usual card to get your usual cash back rewards, and rack up triple rewards at Swagbucks on the side. The rewards Swagbucks offer differ across retailers, so expect anything from 3% to 24% Cash Back, on top of whatever your card offers not to mention the retailers' massive sales. As always, with the SB you earn on Swagbucks you can get Visa cash cards or Pay Pal deposits or pick from a huge range of gift cards, some at discounted prices.

What's that? you prefer waiting in the freezing cold lines to shopping at home in your jammies on Black Friday? Well ok, it's a tradition of sorts, I guess. But make sure you put your time in line to good use - with Swagbucks Mobile Apps, you can put cash back in your wallet just by shivering with your smartphone in hand! Plus, when members use the new Swagbucks Mobile App on Black Friday they will be entered into a $500 Christmas Giveaway! For every 25 SB you earn through the Mobile App, you'll get an entry into a drawing for $500 or 1 of 20 prizes for $100.

With all these deals you can't lose, and hopefully you can save that little extra to stretch your holiday budget as far as it needs to go this year. First time hearing about Swagbucks? Well you're missing out! Sign up for free here

Gift Idea That The Entire Family Will Enjoy

This is NOT a compensated post. I'm sharing a product that I have personally purchased and love. These opinions are my own. 

Holiday shopping season is upon us and I always love to find fun, unique gifts to give to my family and friends. A couple years ago, I happened to catch a showing of an electronic game that was being sold on QVC. I immediately decided to purchase it for my mom - she is in her 70's and likes activities that help keep her mind sharp and that she can do while sitting at home.

(The item pictured here is a newer version than the one I purchased) 

The FlashPad Infinite is a hand-held, touchscreen device with voice command and LED lights. It features 16 different games, including Catch Me, Remember Me, Chase Me, Find Me, Seize Me, Tic Tac Toe, Trace Me, Twist Me, Color Me, Follow Me, Do Re Me, Music Me, and more. They are challenging and a lot of fun. The best part is that practically anyone can play. The item description states it's for ages 3 and up. I know at my mom's house, this game is always pulled out when we have get-togethers and everyone wants in on the action - it's quite addictive!

This really is a great gift that the entire family will enjoy. It requires 3 AAA batteries and right now it is available on QVC for only $23.86 plus shipping. If you are looking for something that will give you a lot of bang for your buck and that will appeal to all ages, you should check this out.

Christmas Wish List 2015

Can you believe it's already the middle of November? I love this time of year but it always seems to sneak up on me and get here so suddenly.

I have done a little bit of Christmas shopping so far and I'm definitely on the lookout for gift ideas for everyone on my list. Just for fun, I put together a Christmas Wish List of my own - these are some things I would be thrilled to find under my tree!

Check it out and then tell me something that's on your wish list...

1. Kluster Petite Starry Night Necklace in Navy Lapis Lazuli
2. Sephora Collection Vessel Canister Brush Set
3. Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+
4. iRobot Roomba Vacuum 
5. Fossil Chelsey Multifunction Black Stainless Steel Watch
6. Wildflower book by Drew Barrymore
7. Sperry Top-Sider Saltwater Boots

Coming to theaters January 29, 2016

I wanted to give you a peek at the new trailer and poster that's out for Disney's THE FINEST HOURS.

THE FINEST HOURS tells the true story of the most daring rescue mission in the history of the U.S. Coast Guard when on February 18, 1952, a massive nor’easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path.

The film stars Chris Pine, Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Holliday Grainger, John Ortiz and Eric Bana. It will be presented in Digital 3D™, Real D 3D and IMAX® 3D - sure to be an awesome cinematic experience!

The trailer is intense and it definitely looks like a keep you on the edge-of-your-seat kind of movie. I can't wait to go see this with my husband. I think it's going to be an incredible story!

Vitabath Sweet Pink Peppermint Set #Giveaway

~Giveaway is now closed~

The following post is shared c/o Vitabath. As a member of the Vitabath Insider Program, I have received free products for review. As always, all opinions expressed are my own.

You already know I'm a big fan of Vitabath. Their products are made with good stuff - vitamins and natural botanicals - and they are paraben free. So, not only do you get a healthy formula for your skin, but you also have so many lovely scents from which to choose.

I've recently been trying out some body wash and lotion in one of the holiday scents called Sweet Pink Peppermint. This special blend combines pink candy cane, cheery vanilla and sugary musk. It has an antioxidant rich superfruit blend including Acai, Goji, Coffee, Noni, Pomegranate, Green Tea, and Mangosteen, as well as Vitamins A, B3, C, E, and Pro-Vitamin B5. Sweet Pink Peppermint is free of Parabens, Sulfates, Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, and Synthetic Color. What does all that mean? means that its super luxurious and good for you, too!

Sweet Pink Peppermint smells so good and leaves my skin with a lasting fragrance as well as lasting softness. The scent is just right and not too sweet. I jokingly said that I can't stop smelling myself when I'm wearing it. It's available in a fun carrier pack that is perfect for holiday gift-giving (or as a treat for yourself).

Vitabath has generously offered one set of Sweet Pink Peppermint Body Wash and Lotion for giveaway to my readers.

Don't Go To Bed With Your Dishwasher Running!

Here's what's been going on at our house!...

Last month we had somewhat of a home disaster. It was a Saturday night. My youngest son and I were the only ones at home -- my older kids were spending the night with friends and my husband was at what was supposed to be an overnight trip to a high school reunion.

Around 11:30, I made the rounds around the house, turning off lights, locking doors, etc. Then I turned on my dishwasher and told my son goodnight and we both went to bed.

I'm an extremely sound sleeper - fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow and stay asleep until I hear the alarm clock. I also sleep with two fans going in my room so I don't always hear something that may be going on elsewhere in the house. For some reason I woke up and looked at the clock and it was 3:30 a.m. I could see that the kitchen light was on and hear someone walking around.

I got out of bed to investigate and ran into my husband in the living room. He had decided to come home instead of spending the night at his reunion. He quickly said to me, "we have a major catastrophe!" Well, as you can imagine that scared the you-know-what out of me. I thought he meant something bad happened at his reunion. 

But, no. He meant something bad happened in our house!

A flood!

The water line that runs to the dishwasher had busted and water was spewing heavily and loudly. He said it sounded like a train when he opened the door to come in the house. We don't really know how long it had been going but there was a four hour window between when I started the dishwasher and went to bed until my husband came home. It could've been flooding for hours!

He immediately shut off the water and we moved our BRAND NEW DINING ROOM FURNITURE that was partially sitting in water. Then, we just stared at the mess. Parts of our kitchen, dining room, living room, foyer, master bedroom and basement were affected. Honestly, it was almost 4 a.m. and we were so overwhelmed that we just went to bed and decided to tackle the mess in the morning. 

These pictures don't really do justice to show how much of a mess it was but you can see that we had to rip out carpet and baseboards. The living room had carpet but the other affected rooms had hardwood floors. That all has to be replaced. A couple pieces of furniture were damaged (my new dining room furniture was ok!). We are just thankful that our home owner's insurance is covering everything (but now I'm afraid our insurance rates are going to go sky-high after such an expensive claim).

There's our dog, Piper. She proved to be a useless guard dog, never once waking me up to alert me to the loud flood that was in progress in the house. HA! She probably saw what was going on and ran to hide.

After contacting our insurance company, they sent a restoration service to our house. They set up fans and dehumidifiers all over the house that ended up having to run for over 3 days. All that equipment was so loud - it felt like you were in an airplane hangar! You literally could hardly hear each other speak if you were in these rooms. 

Since we are going to have all this work going on, we have decided to also do some kitchen renovations at the same time. We'll be painting our kitchen cabinets and replacing our Formica counter with granite. My husband is a builder/contractor so he will be doing most of the work himself. It's great that he can do it but he is so busy with his jobs that he just won't have alot of free time so it will probably take awhile. We were supposed to host a Thanksgiving dinner but had to cancel that. I'm just keeping fingers crossed that it will all be done before Christmas.  It will definitely give me a very late start on any holiday decorating.

This happened in early October. Between the restoration service and the insurance claim process, we haven't even begun any work. Hopefully this weekend we will be ordering the hardwood floor. I'm so ready to start seeing some progress. 

So, the moral to this long story is...don't go to bed with your dishwasher running!

My dad used to always tell me that. From the time that I had my own home, he would always say, "never go to bed or leave the house with any appliances running." I cannot even tell you how many times he used to say that!

Man, I should've listened to my Dad!

TIMESURFERS Book Blast and $50 Giveaway

Welcome to the Book Blast and $50 Amazon Gift Card or Paypal Cash Giveaway


Timesurfers by Rhonda Sermon 
"It’s not a choice. It’s a destiny." Fifteen-year-old Cate takes weird, unusual and plain terrifying in her stride. Five years in witness protection will do that. It didn’t however prepare her for when everything and everyone surrounding her suddenly froze at the bus stop. All still like statues. Only she sees the teens appear out of thin air. One boy hoists the bus she’s waiting to board over his head, while the others disarm a bomb placed underneath it. When she confronts them the teens vanish. Literally vanish. Intrigued why Cate wasn't frozen at the bus stop, the teens pursue her relentlessly. They arrive at Socrates Private School and all the teachers and the other students act like they've known them all forever– like they’ve always attended the school. Cate sees something different. She is adamant they are totally new to Socrates and have never set foot in the school before today. What's with that? When Cate accidentally brings a dead cheerleader back to life, her connection to the secretive teens is revealed. They are Timesurfers who travel through time and battle the powerful dark forces intent on manipulating history. A reluctant Cate is forced into their brutal world. She must discover her magical powers, choose a side, and end an ancient war. That’s if, and it’s a pretty big if, she can survive the initiation trials. No pressure though.

Praise for the book: 
With this being more urban fantasy than sci-fi, the author was able to create her own rules that created a unique and fun storyline! I really enjoyed the characters and their interactions kept me on my toes, especially when it came to the romance aspects. I'm eager to read the next installment of the series--- DelSheree D. Gladden USA Today Bestselling Author Amazing Debut for Young Adults.

Sermon does a wonderful job of exploring the complexities of time travel and how along with some magic it can alter reality. Cate is a spunky character, and I love that she's strong enough, physically and emotionally, to take care of herself.--- Angela Fristoe USA Today Bestselling Author

This was an amazing book! Well written, plot was excellent and not predictable. Recommended for all! --- From Amazon

“I brought a dead cheerleader back to life,” she blurted. Naitanui’s luminous yellow eyes widened. “I probably would have gone with ‘hello’ to break the ice. But that was definitely another option,” Austin said. “Where am I?” She demanded. “You’re outside the Break,” Austin said. “You could have killed her.” Naitanui gave Austin a look Cate was all too familiar look. Her mother used it often. It came with an “I’ll deal with you later” clause. “But I didn’t. We found her. I couldn’t risk her vanishing.” “Inside.” Naitanui stepped backward through the cascading water. “Huh?” Cate muttered. The water didn’t splash on Naitanui’s head. He passed through, leaving the water undisturbed. She pulled back, digging her heels into the ground and crossing her arms. Until Austin did some explaining, she wasn’t going a step further. “Have it your way.” Austin bent and grabbed her behind the knees, then slung her over his shoulder. “Put me down.” She pounded on his back with her fists. Unperturbed, he strode toward where Naitanui had disappeared. A shudder ran through her body, and the waterfall was behind them. They had walked straight through and arrived dry on the other side. She stretched to touch the water, and her fingers glided through nothing. Another shudder ran up her arm yet it remained dry. “It’s a glamour.” Austin set her down. “More magic.” He strolled further into the cave, heading for an opening in the rock wall. The slightest hint of light filtered through the gap. She looked from Austin to the waterfall, deliberating whether to run or follow. “You can’t go back to 2014 without me. Come and learn about time travel.” Austin ducked through the archway. “You demanded I bring you here for answers, so man up and come and get them.” Little puffs of red dirt rose as she marched after him. Time travel. What the hell? This wasn’t going at all how she expected.
