Introducing Tina!

Okay, some of you know her from my comments, so this might not be a brand new introduction, but Tina has started a blog. It is called, Tales Remembered, and her first tale will introduce you to the doctor that first suggested she be aborted, and then insisted she be born early so she didn’t interfere with his vacation.

Tina is my oldest online friend.  we met in a chatroom way back in 1997.  If you would please, hop on over to Tina’s blog and tell her how happy you are that she was born.  Then give her a nice warm welcome to blogland.

iPhone Addicts: Get The App That Pays You to Use It!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

ChopsYep.  You read that headline right.  WeReward is an iPhone App that pays you for doing what you’re already doing — how sweet is that?   Say you want a coffee, just check your iPhone to see which of your local coffee shops is offering check-in rewards, then go get your coffee at that shop and you’ll actually earn cash back on the sale.  Here, check out this video.  It explains things much more clearly than I can.

This is so cool I wish I had an iPhone! Just think, I could put it to work earning money through WeReward.com and it would help pay for itself. That’s what I call a sweet deal.

First you need to visit WeReward, Download the App and link it to your favorite social media app like Twitter, Facebook or Foursquare. Once you’re linked, you’re ready to start earning points. Most of the check-ins are worth five points (equal to five cents) but I’ve seen tasks worth up to ten times that much — and the tasks are fun! They’re kind of like treasure hunts with real treasure.

So, why are you just sitting there?  Start downloading all ready, then the next time you go to the video store or your favorite pizza place you can earn cash back. WeReward is a brand new app.  You can be the first one to introduce it to your friends.

I wish I had known about HireAHelper those 6 weeks I sat in Vegas with my foot elevated in wrapped in frozen peas.  I could have used some housekeeping and laundry help.  I could have used some grocery shopping help, too.  I lived on take-out and believe me it was getting tiresome by the time I could finally put weight on my foot.

Summer Wedding, Here I come!

This is a guest post by Yolanda Reynolds.

My cousin is getting married this summer. It’s a very casual wedding at a local park. I’m sure it will be warm and uncomfortable. I looked though my closet and realized that all my sundresses are too casual. I wasn’t terribly excited over the thoughts of shopping for a new dress and shoes.

I don’t really enjoy the hustle and bustle of mall shopping. Sifting through rack after rack of dresses with my mother wrinkling her nose at every choice isn’t my idea of a fun afternoon. I prefer shopping using wild blue online while relaxing on my comfortable couch with my dog. Being a common size and shape, I don’t have much trouble buying online. Besides, if there is a problem with the fit or the dress doesn’t have that “wow” factor, I can just repackage it and return it. It’s almost too easy!

I visited every website imaginable looking for the right dress. I settled on a really cute Rachel Roy dress from Macy’s. The colors in the dress coordinate with the wedding theme and colors. I was very lucky to have found it! It has spaghetti straps, a blosoun bodice, and hits right above the knee. For shoes, I chose a simple and lightweight pair of Bandolino sandals. They are a sparkly silver with sexy stiletto heels. I almost feel guilty about looking so good for the wedding! Almost!

The buying process was really straightforward and fast – thanks to my satellite internet service. Today I am thankful for two things: internet shopping and my fast service! I’m a happy, happy girl!
