How I’ve Earned Money Through Ebates

Posted in Random

Before I dive into this post I want to start off by saying this is NOT sponsored, everything mentioned here is from my own experience. So far I’ve made quite a bit of money just from shopping online (which I do anyways!), and I wanted to share it with others.

I signed up for Ebates back in 2011, but I hardly used it. Over the last few months I’ve been using it non stop! I installed their extension for Google Chrome, so anytime I’m shopping online it reminds me to activate it to earn cash back. This was a huge issue for me and why I never used it, I always forgot about it, but since I’ve been so active with using it, I’m up $41.65 lifetime cash back! Since this was only something I had been doing recently I’ll get all of that sent to my PayPal account this month, and they send out payments every couple of months and even if you’re only spending $20 or so it quickly can add up.

Since I am huge into planning and buying things at places like eBay, Amazon, and Etsy, earning money for doing what I’m already doing (spending money) is wonderful! It’s seriously amazing. You can even install an app on your phone, which I’ve used here and there as well.

I’m excited to see how much I can earn for the entire year! After the year is up, I will definitely make another post sharing how much I’ve earned. This website has seriously been my go-to for a while when it comes to online shopping, and I hope it becomes yours too!

I Tried the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino

Posted in Photos, Random

If you haven’t already heard, today Starbucks released a new drink called the Unicorn Frappuccino. The drink is available from April 19th to April 23rd.On their website it’s described as “magical flavors start off sweet and fruity transforming to pleasantly sour. Swirl it to reveal a color-changing spectacle of purple and pink. It’s finished with whipped cream-sprinkled pink and blue fairy powders.” Saying this drink is magical is a huge understatement.

The base of the drink is a fruity mango blend that is SO good, and is swirled with a sour blue magical drizzle. You get a very nice mix of sweet and sour. If you’re not a huge fan of sour, you may not be a big fan of this drink but I promise you the sour drizzle isn’t super over powering. Seriously, I can’t recommend this drink enough.

I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious this drink actually was. There’s enough sour drizzle in it that you get the taste of it, but it doesn’t overpower the mango blended into the drink (I actually would have loved more of the drizzle, but I also really enjoy sour things). I think my only real complaint is the whipped topping.

Although the whipped topping with the sour dusting is delicious, I found it didn’t really match the overall flavors of the drink. The whipped cream tasted a bit weird when mixed with the blue sour drizzle, but just for the looks I’d probably still order the drink again with the topping. If you plan on going non-dairy with this drink,  you won’t miss too much without the whipped cream (besides the pretty dusting).

Overall I really enjoyed the drink, and my only regret is not getting a bigger size than grande! Depending on where you live and the size you get, the drink is about $5 (mine was around $5.60 for grande) and it’s oh so worth it! I’m only saddened that this drink is only out for a limited time, but I do hope Starbucks brings it back in the future because I totally believe! If you’ve tried the drink, please let me know your thoughts on it in the comment section.

My Stationary Obsession

Posted in Photos, Random

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a weird (or awesome?) obsession with stationary and all things office supplies. You’d think because of this I’d work in a office, but I don’t (which I am fine with). I’m constantly buying new notebooks, journals, sticky notes, pens, and more. I love it, and I can never have enough. So I thought I’d show some of my recent purchases that I am loving!

First up is a set of 3 journals I picked up at Target. They were on clearance for $8 for the whole set, and I couldn’t resist. They read: Be silly, be honest, be kind. Write without fear, edit without mercy. Think less, do more. I’m not exactly sure what I’ll write in them, but I thought they’d come in handy … if anything, the covers are nice!

Next is some diamond pens! I picked these up on eBay for $1.64 each, and they were so well worth the shipping (ship overseas) and the price. They’re not only super cute, but they actually write pretty well. You can pretty much find them anywhere online.

Probably my favorite recent stationary purchase is a set of 4 planet sticky notes. They are even more gorgeous in person! I love to use sticky notes to jot down random things I want to remember, and what better to write on than the moon? I picked these up from Wish for $5 with shipping.

Here’s a close up of the moon, one of my favorites in the set!

Overall I am very happy with my purchases and I can’t wait to buy more haha.

My Office/Desk Setup

Posted in Gaming, Personal, Tech

On January 31st I packed up my car and made the drive from Ohio back to Florida. I decided to move back for a variety of reasons, but moving back meant I had a new office to decorate. I’m still working on adding things and organizing it but here’s what I have so far with my desk setup.

To the side of my desk I have this 3 shelf organizer thingy I got from Michael’s. It mostly contains my xbox one games, pens, pencils, and other extras.

To the left of where I sit I have a Zelda cup, my iPhone 6 (complete with a D. Va Overwatch case), Razer Blackwidow Chroma keyboard, Overwatch mousemat, my mic and mic stand, and my Astro headset with mixamp.
