Money saving tip: Use Ebates

Have you heard of Ebates? It's a website that lets you earn cash back from your online purchases for FREE. If you're someone who shops online a lot, you need to sign up for this.

How does it work?
First you need to sign up for an Ebates account. After that, once you are all set up the next time you make an online purchase go to Ebates FIRST, then type the name of the store you want to shop at (e.g. Target, forever 21, bath and body works). Then you will be able to click on the store and it will create a tracker to see if you made a purchase. Then go ahead and make your purchases. Shortly after you should get an email from Ebates saying how much cash back you received.

Why I love it:
Not only does this give you cash back for your purchases but when you search for a store, it shows you all the available promo codes so you save even more money.

Review: Chagrin Valley's Honey Butter Soap

I recently purchased a lot of soaps from Chagrin Valley because I've heard great things about them and I've been wanting to try shampoo bars. When I was on the website I noticed that also had bars for the body (they have a lot of other things too-hair teas, lotion bars, facial scrubs) and I was in serious need of soap that didn't irritate my skin. So I decided to buy this and see how it worked.  The reason I am doing the soap bar first is because I recently flat ironed my hair (you can see the results on the facebook page here), so I will not be using the shampoo bar for at least a week.
Keep reading for my experience with this soap.

Motivation Monday Week 4: Vision Board

!!!!! I completely forgot to post this yesterday! I guess spring break is getting to my lol
But this is the last week of our motivation Monday challenge!! I hope this has been helpful for you, because I know it helped me.
Ok, so this week will be about summing up what we have learned so far by creating a vision board.
What is a vision board?
A vision board is a place that you put your goals in a way that you can see them so that you will remember to keep working towards your goal. For example, your board could have a theme like work. You could post pictures of the position you wish to have, some cute office outfits, some of the work you'd be doing, etc.

How to get the best deal on your summer vacation

"Summer vacation? I just started my spring break," I know, I know summer seems so far away (especially here where its about to Snow), but this is the second best time to start planning your summer vacation. The best time to plan your vacation is in the winter, because you will be one of the only people buying a plane ticket for July. Think about it this way, the further ahead you purchase your ticket, the less the price will be. This is because of price discrimination; airlines charge you based on your willingness to go. Let's say you purchased an airline ticket a week before, this price will be higher because they know you really have to get to that place the next week.
With that said, keep reading for some tips on scoring deals on your summer vacation.

Reviewing: Oyin Handmade Honey Hemp Conditioner

Hey everyone,
Yes I know I haven't been updating my blog as much as I'd like but I've been so busy lately. But I am back and this time with a product review yay!!
So I've been wanting to try these products for a while, because so many people give rave reviews about it. For those of you who don't know, Oyin is a natural hair line based in Baltimore that offers handmade hair and body products made from honey. And if you were curious Oyin means Honey, which is why most of their products have honey in it. As you can see from the picture above, I purchased the Honey Hemp, Honey Wash, Whipped Butter, and Fizzy Milk Bath. For this review, I will just focus on the Honey Hemp, because I am still figuring out how I like the other products.
