Ebates, anyone?

If you purchase any items online, I hope you are using Ebates! If you are not, you need to sign up here.
Here's how it works- go to Ebates, click on type of product you are buying or search for a store. Let's say you want to purchase something from Target. Go to search and type in Target. Ebates will bring up all of Target's special coupons and when you purchase items you get a certain percentage of cash back! WHO DOESN'T WANT CASH BACK? The rebate will go to your ebates account and then Ebates will deposit the cash into your paypal account on a certain day. That is it! It is too easy! I purchased a flight by going to ebates and then clicking on orbitz and purchasing a ticket. Ebates has tons of websites that offer cash back and some free shipping. Check it out!

Have you tried a Shellac manicure?

I just went to The Nail and Skin Bar in Memphis on Cooper and Peabody to try out my first shellac manicure. Joslyn used CND's Shellac polish on my nails. What is shellac? How does it work? Check out CND's fact sheet here.

Usually when I get my nails done they chip very quickly (maybe after a couple of days), so I was very interested when Joslyn told me about shellac. It is supposed to last 14 days! I definitely had to try this out. I got a base coat, 2 coats of polish , and a top coat. After each coat, your hand is cured by a UV light. My nails were completely dry by the time she was finished and they are so shiny!

I love the color too!

My favorite baby gift to give...

Anytime I need a baby gift, I call on my mom. She makes the cutest stork basket and I add in things to put in it. I finally learned how to make one! Here is a close up of the basket.

I added some baby bath gel, baby wipes, baby powder,a onesie, a rattle, and a couple of toys for the bath. Here is the finished product all wrapped up.

Isn't it darling? If you are interested in purchasing a stork basket, please send me a message at and I will get back to you about a price. You can pick an empty basket or I can do some shopping for you and fill it like I did here.
