Our Brunette Adventure….

Well you know how I said I would be more with it in 2018 over here on my little piece of the inter webs?….it has been 3 months since my last post. About time I showed up and gave an update on our little family.

Beckett is 6 months old. (Almost 7 months) can you believe that!?Time is flying by…… Beckett and Lilly are becoming the best of friends. Beckett wants to know where Lilly is at all times and giggles all thing puppy related.

In other news, Jimmy and I are celebrating 5 years of marriage tomorrow. So many memories we have been created these past five years. We have gone through some major milestones and some major ups/downs. My partner, travel counterpart, shoulder to cry on, always there cheering me on. No one else I’d rather do life with. Cheers to many many more.

Hopefully I don’t wait another 3 months to post again.

How I Made $1000 Online

design

If you are like me you are always up for a little extra cash from things you do everyday. I have made close to $1k by just shopping online.  How? Sure that contradicts itself, I spend money to make money, but what if I said you are already spending money why not get cash back in your wallet? It is easy……use my link to earn FREE $10 (cash not points) just for signing up. Next, log into your Ebates account anytime you are shopping online, search the company/store/online site you want to shop and bam, if you now buy anything during that online visit you will get anywhere from 1-25% cash back! You can even download the Ebates app on your iPhone.  Just open the Ebates app, search the store, it will direct you to that stores website and shop like normal.

Remember in order to get the FREE $10, you need to sign up here!

Just think of all the things we spend money on and how it would be nice to get cash back to spend towards travel and other things we enjoy. No, you don’t just have to shop for clothing online. Think big ticket items you spend hundreds of dollars on? Think Target, Amazon, Walmart, tires, appliances, furniture, etc. For example, when filing our taxes, I got 25% cash back just by clicking Ebates before heading to E-file.com. I was going to have to pay E-file a fee to file my taxes anyways but I got 25% of that fee back just from being apart of Ebates! (I think it was close to $50 cash back) Another example, my husband needed new tires for his car.  Tires are expensive, so after he searched around online for the best deal, we plugged that company into Ebates and sure enough, cash back by using Ebates!! There are so many companies that are on Ebates. All those purchases you make on Amazon, yep cash back! (however, Amazon only gives back for certain categories) We bought our daughters crib online from Target, cash back! Do you see how easy it was for me to make that money from just shopping online on my phone? Ebates also likes to run double cash-back days which is even more money back in your pocket! If the store is usually only 10% cash back on Ebates, it would be 20% cash back on those double days! Again, get that FREE $10 back just by clicking here and start getting even more money back in your pocket!

Ebates also has select stores that will give you cash back from shopping in-stores too!

Remember you have to go to Ebates every time you shop FIRST, then search the store you wish to shop, now you will get cash back. You can’t go straight to the stores website, you need to go to Ebates first. Did I also mention Ebates lists coupons and free shipping deals for companies too? Go sign up so you can start making money online now.

**This is not a sponsored post, these are all my own opinions and experiences.

 

Best of luck also bring in that $$$$ just from shopping online for your everyday purchases!

3 Ways to Wear Denim with a T-shirt

Are you like me and live in denim? Do you sometimes feel like your outfit is just a plain t-shirt and denim look? Today I share my current favorite denim looks with just a bit more to the look.  These looks are easy since it is just denim + a t-shirt, with a few added items to make them look more put together.

The first look is my overalls and navy striped t-shirt with a pair of converse.  It took me sometime to commit to these overalls, but if you follow me on Instagram you know I have been living in these overalls.  I highly recommend everyone to try a pair, these are on sale for $35 right now at the Gap. I thought I would dislike them for my body type but actually love them!  This look is easy to create with any t-shirt you already have and a low sneaker we know you already have in your wardrobe.  Lastly, I paired my look with my current favorite backpack as a final touch.  You could also pair a crossbody bag if you are not a back pack person. And that is look one!

Look Two:

For our second  denim and t-shirt look you might have everything you need in your closet.  These days I need my denim to not be too skinny so I have a pair of girlfriend jeans I got for under $30 recently from Banana Republic Factory.  I just had a baby and needed a more relaxed fit, so these work perfect. Next, I paired a olive t-shirt from last season, tucked it in and topped with a short sleeve oversized sweater. My shoes and necklace were also very old pieces I already owned.  Sometimes, if you dig deep in your closet you can pair ‘old’ pieces that now seem new for a refreshed look.  Kind of makes you feel like you bought a new outfit! This might be my new favorite momiform.

The Third Look:

My third look is basic with a few extra accessories to make it more than just  denim and a t-shirt.  My go to cognac back pack and sandals were just the right accessories with this navy t-shirt.  Navy is becoming a favorite color of mine not only in my wardrobe but also home decor. And before I side track to home decor….. This denim is the same girlfriend denim I wore in look two but with a navy crew neck t-shirt I found at J.Crew recently.  Now that neck scarf? (And yes, I got it for $3 in the dollar spot at Target, winning) And this is why I always check the dollar spot when I am at Target. You never know what hidden gem you will find. 🙂 (I also buy $1 cards for birthdays and such in the dollar spot..but that is for another day, another post) I think this neck scarf look is a your on board with it or your not, and I am for sure. You can tie it tighter around your neck or more loose like I have done so here.  I have this neck scarf and a classic red one that I got last year.  You will be seeing more of this neck scarf look from me for sure.  If you are not wanting it around your neck, you can try adding it to the handle of your handbag or strap of your crossbody bag. They are very light weight but I know some people do not like things up around their necks.

What if I told you this third and final denim and t-shirt look only cost me a total of $65! All items (aside from the back pack) only cost me $65 bucks total.  That is pretty good since the denim, t-shirt and sandals are staples in my wardrobe right now.  These items get a lot of use and can be mixed with so many pieces. I am all about items that can be mixed so many ways and worn with many different looks.

Hope these 3 ways to wear denim and t-shirts give you a few ideas of how to mix items you have in your wardrobe.  What ways do you like to wear your denim and t-shirts to give it a put together look? I would love to see how you style your looks. 🙂

**I will also be doing  a blog post about how you can get $$ just for shopping online! It is easy and I have made over $450! (It is not a gimmick and you will want to catch that post) If you will be shopping online soon, send me an email so you don’t miss out on $$ back in your pocket.            mybrunetteadventure@gmail.com

XOXO,
