How to Make Money from your Phone

IMG_4692

Did you know you could make money from your phone? As an upcoming college student, I have had to learn how to balance my budget but also find ways to make money as well. I have finally found the best ways I can make easy fast money. Check them out below!!

Money from the grocery store/Walking into a store/Scanning your receipt:

Ibotta-This app is the rebate queen without having to mail in the rebate. The app is super easy to use and is worth it! All you do is find products that you purchased in store, snap a picture of your receipt, and earn. You can find rebates from stores like: Walmart, Target, Macy’s, Old Navy, and even Sephora (for my makeup lovers). YOU EVEN EARN $5 FOR JUST SIGNING UP!!!! Use my code UMHXBHV

Checkout51-Another rebate app! Unlike Ibotta, you don’t have to choose a store. Just find the products and take a picture of your receipt. I love this app, because you get a check instead of a gift card. Real Money!!

Shopkick– If scanning grocery’s and taking pictures of receipts isn’t for you, then just walking into a store and clicking this app is for you! Super Easy! You earn points called “kicks” for walking through the door of select stores. Once you earn enough kicks you cash your credits out for gift cards to places like: Target, Amazon, Apple, Walmart, and Nike. This one can earn you gift cards pretty fast. Click here to sign up

Receipt Hog- This app is by far my favorite app to make quick easy money. All you have to do is take a picture of any receipt. ANY RECEIPT!!! I can’t say enough good things about this app. You can only earn Amazon or Paypal gift cards. I have cashed out many times on this app.

Shopping online & instore

Ebates– This site is the real deal. This site has been featured on news shows, online, and even commercials. I love love love this site. Screen Shot 2015-12-30 at 12.38.27 PMBasically you get paid whenever you shop online. The sites has thousands of brands to choose from: Macys, Victoria’s Secret, Nordstrom, Gap, and much more. All you have to do is search on the website for the store you are shopping at and click the link (which takes you straight to the website) and shop! Literally the easiest way to make money! You can either be paid through a check or gift cards. I have only been paid three times(via check) and am currently about to get another (check).

    Taking Surveys/Watching Videos

    2. Swag bucks– I think this is #1 on everyone’s list. This site is literally amazing. You can do so many things to earn points which later can be redeemed for sweepstakes or gift cards. You however do not receive actual dollar bills or checks. Swagbucks runs off a point system.  I have received around 13 gift cards from Swagbucks. When I got my first gift card I thought it would come in the mail and take forever. However, within a day I received an egift card for the store I seleswagcted. This has been done with all my gift cards. The way I get my points is by doing the daily poll and completing the noso. You can earn up to 3 Swagbucks per day by doing these two. I also search and watch videos for easy Swagbucks. Rarely I will buy or sign up for something where I can earn more Swagbucks for those offers. One thing that I do not do on Swagbucks is the surveys. There is no reason that I do not complete the surveys only that I do so many surveys that I need a break and this site allows me the opportunity to earn rewards without always having to complete a survey.
    • It takes me around 1 month to earn a giftcard. 
    • Rate: 10
    Swagbucks-Sign-Up-Code-and-Bonus
3. Inboxdollars– I love this site because it gives me the opportunity to make real money and not receive sweepstakes or gift cards. The payment is either a check or a card similar to a visa. This site gives countless opportunities to make money without having to do surveys like most sites, and they also give you a $5 bonus just for signing up!. My personal favorite thing to do on this site is to click  on emails and get payed $.02 for each email I click. Although iboxt may take a couple of days to earn a dollar it is so worth it because it is easy money. I also watch videos and earn $.01. Unlike Swagbucks I do the surveys offered on inboxdollars. I don’t qualify for a lot of the surveys but the ones I do I can make $.25-$5 per survey and the surveys are always available. The only bad thing is you have to cash out at $30 which depending on how much you do it can take a while. But after you cash out your first time($30) you can cash out on any amount.
  • Honestly it took me forever to cash out Rate:10

Selling clothes, shoes, or accessories

4. Poshmark & Merci– Are apps that I use to make money by selling my clothes, shoes, and accessories. I like beingFullSizeRender (6) able to control and interact with people with my personal items. I can better explain to them or ask them questions personally. Th evibe on these apps are amazing and everyoIMG_7519ne is so friendly. Each app has an advantage over the other. The only bad thing is that postmark takes 20% of what you make which can be lot for listing priced low. However Mercari takes 10% of your earnings. But when it comes to shipping, Poshmark has a flat rate of $4.99 on every order where as Mercari has different prices for different sized items. But both sites are amazing and I have earned money from both.

Fenty Beauty

I know by this title you are probably thinking, “she is so late on this review.” Trust me I’m not a latecomer on this brand, I just wanted to use the products for a couple of months so I could give a detailed and full review on the products. Most of the time when I get a new product, I am like most people, I post about it right away. I have found that first impressions may not last long in the beauty world. Makeup products can be deceiving at the beginning. Fenty Beauty has been out since September 2017. I have had these products for a couple of months and wanted to share my thoughts on them. Keep reading to find out!

 

Fenty Beauty Primer– I did not originally intend to get this product. I mainly wanted to try the foundation & the lip gloss. When I first tried the Fenty Beauty Foundation, I used my Benefit POREfessional primer. That primer is my everyday primer and I have found it works well with my other foundations. After trying the Benefit POREfessional primer with the Fenty Beauty Foundation, I realized that these two did not pair well with one another. My face was very oily throughout and my pores were very noticeable. Now you would not think that my biggest issue would be about my pores, especially since the primer is dedicated to hide and diminish your pores. I decided that instead of looking at other brands of primers, I would just buy the Fenty Beauty Primer. I can honestly say I am in love with this product. The whole concept of this primer is to be moisturizing while also applying the benefits that a primer should. Although the primer resembles a lotion, it is very smooth on the skin and not too thick. Plus the smell in this product is amazing. It is very simple but noticeable in a good way. Only con I have is that you have to hurry and blend it in. If you are one to put little dots of the product onto your face then blend it in, I would say try to do it fast.

Fenty Beauty Foundation– I am so excited about this product. I normally do not buy into the whole celeibitries in the beauty world. However, it is Rihanna so how I could say no! Plus I truly believe she has good intentions for her brand and is really making a differences among women! Of course I did not buy this product right away, I like to wait and see reviews on the product before I buy. Every review I read or youtube video I saw, loved and raved about the foundation. Only bad thing I heard, was that it may not be for people with oily skin. Now I have really really oily skin so I automatically was skeptical. However, I know this was a product I really wanted to try and that I should see for myself. I decided to go ahead and buy from Sephora.

I originally bought two shades: 360 & 370. These shades are really similar however, 360 has an olive undertone and 370 has more of an orange undertone. Naturally I would go with 370, but after wearing each color for a couple of days, I decided to go with 360. This color matches me perfectly! I have never had a foundation  that matches my exact skin color. Although it is currently winter, I know that when summer comes I’m going to get tan and a bit darker. I may have to change my shade once this happens.

Applying this foundation is easy and lightweight. I use both a brush (Sigma F80) and a beauty blender to apply the foundation. When using the beauty blender wet, I find I have to use more product than if I use it dry. I have no preference between using it dry or wet. However, I like the coverage more with the beauty blender than the brush, although the brush is faster to apply with. I love the finish of this foundation. NATURAL NATURAL NATURAL!! The finish is very nice and has a mixture between a satin & matte finish. The coverage is medium but can be built up to be full coverage. Normally I like my foundations to be very full coverage, however, when I wear this foundation I am satisfied by how I look. A natural looking finish is sometimes more appealing than a cakey face!

Overall I give this foundation a 9/10

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow– I was really hesitant at first to try this lip product. I normally only wear lipsticks and hardly wear lip gloss. I am not a fan of the stickiness that a lip gloss has. However, this lip product is a universal product. Meaning it is for everyone: any skin type or any skin tone. Since this is for everyone, I knew it had to be an overall good product. I decided to try and I love this lip gloss. The lip product is perfect for any occasion and any outfit. I can wear it just to the gym and even wear it to a nice dinner. I would definitely agree that it is very versatile and would look great on anyone!

4 Tips for Eating Healthier

Inform yourself with knowledge: 

This is very important. Ever heard the saying, “You are what you eat.” This is really a true saying. All of the ingredients you put into your body, are what your body is made up of. Do research of the food you intake. An item that you thought was only a few calories could in-fact be equal to your daily intake. It’s great to stay a step ahead of your cravings by researching what you really are intaking. There are many websites & apps that will tell you the calorie intake of an item. I have used the app MyFitnessPal before and I loved  the experience. It was an eye opening experience being able to see what I actually intake and how to track my progress.

Load your pantry with the right stuff:

Buy the right items to stock your pantry. If you want a late night snack, instead of your pantry being filled with junk food, it will contain food items that are filling & healthy at the same time. Make a list before you go to the grocery store instead of just picking up random items while you’re there. Another tip is looking on Pinterest of healthy alternatives to your favorite unhealthy snacks. This also goes with informing yourself and doing research. Load your fridge with 100% fruit popsicles or vegetarian meat. Instead of buying the popsicles, you can make them yourself. Plus they come in handy when you’re craving something sweet. Use alternatives to meat for your meals. Vegan meat, tofu, and fish are great replacements.

Try a food challenge:

Pintrest is definitely my go to for food ideas. Type in “Food Challenge” in the search bar and pick a challenge that you know you can stick to. Start off by doing the challenge for 2 weeks then 1 month and increase it over time. Starting off in small intakes such a 2 weeks or a month helps to progress you and ease your way into an overall healthier lifestyle. I love doing water challenges. My favorite food challenge is the “No Junk Food Challenge” or the “No Diary Challenge.” If doing a food challenge is something you are not interest in, trying eliminating unhealthy food choices. Easy items to eliminate can include: chocolate or candy, soda, fast food, chips, diary, fried food, and alcohol.

Water. Water. Water

Yes, I know. Everyone alway says this. I mean everyone. Guess what? They’re always saying if for a reason. Water is highly important for any reason. Concerning the aspect of eating healthy, water has many benefits. I noticed when I drink a lot of water, I can skip meals. Water itself is very fulfilling. Now I do not recommend doing this for every meal, every day. However, it can be a good alternative. Going alone with trying a challenge, there are water challenges as well. I’ve seen some post & youtube videos where people will drink only water for 2 days straight. I am not at that level yet, however, it could be a goal to accomplish. Here’s a tip: if you have a hard time drinking water, try adding fruits or vegetables to the water. I love adding cucumbers, lemons, and strawberries to my water. Plus each has added benefits.

Sephora Haul

Screen Shot 2018-01-13 at 11.28.55 PM.png

Starting off the New Year, I wanted to get some makeup products that I’ve been wanting to try and to repurchase some of my favorites. This haul includes a lot of goodies that I am so excited to try out. I normally wait to splurge on makeup until the end of the year and the beginning of a new year. Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products or if you want to try them out!!

Fenty Beauty Primer– I original bought the Fenty Beauty Foundation alone. I used my Benefit POREfessional primer (my everyday primer) with the foundation. Instantly I could tell that this combination was not going to work. I really love the foundation and I loved the Benefit POREfessional primer, just not together. Although the Benefit POREfessional primer works well with my other foundations, I decided that I would have to find another primer for the FB foundation. I went to my local Sephora the next day and picked up the FB Primer. I was skeptical of the primer because of the formula. It has a thick consistency and remains me of lotion. However, this primer is a moisturizing primer. My skin has been in need of moisture, especially when I wear makeup. It is a matte primer so hopefully the primer controls my oil & shine while also moisturizing.

Fenty Beauty Foundation– I’m going to do an entire detailed post dedicated to this foundation soon! Be on the look out! I will say that I was surprised by the foundation. The shade I am in is 360. I bought 360 & 370. Both colors were very similar, however, 370 had orange undertones to it. Naturally I love the undertones and would automatically choose 370. I tried both shades and to my surprise, 360 was a better option.

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow– I was really hesitant at first to try this lip product. I normally only wear lipsticks and hardly wear lip gloss. I am not a fan of the stickiness that a lip gloss has. However, this lip product is a universal product. Meaning it is for everyone: any skin type or any skin tone. Since this is for everyone, I knew it had to be a good product. I decided to try and I love this lip gloss. The lip product is perfect for any occasion and any outfit. I can wear it just to the gym and even wear it to a nice dinner. I would definitely agree that it is very versatile and would look great on anyone!

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella– This is my second time repurchasing this lip pencil. I prefer lipsticks as my favorite lip product, however, I am in love with the Nars Lip Pencils. I normally can skip wearing a lip liner with my lip products. This is a product where I am able to do that. The color is a bit more bolder in person, it is the perfect red. The lip pencil glides onto the lips very smoothly & easily. The tip is easy to use to outline the shape of your lip. I can wear this shade for dressing up a simple look or if I am going out.

The Original Beauty Blender-For the longest I could not bring myself to buy this product. The price really got me. I can spend $50+ on an eyeshadow palette, but I just couldn’t bring myself to buy the Original Beauty Blender. I have two beauty blenders, the real techniques one and another drugstore one. I use both of these occasionally and they work fine. However, I actually do not use either one for applying my foundation. I decided that I wanted to try a beauty blender to apply my foundation so I decided to get the OG Beauty Blender!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Eyeshadow Palette– Also be on the look out for a separate post on this palette! I will say this is my first Anastasia Beverly Hills palette and I am super excited to try. From a glance, the colors are beautiful and I can create so many looks!

Screen Shot 2018-01-13 at 11.43.26 PM.png

Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray– I have purchased this setting spray 3 times! Wow that is crazy! The last time I bought this product, I bought the full size. This spray can last me a while so I decide to get the travel size.  Overall I love this product a lot! It is not sticky like other setting sprays and it sets onto my face fast. I find that I do 3 squirts onto my face and sometimes an additional one. My makeup seems to last for the 8 hour period that I wear makeup and it could possibly last longer. If oil control is not what you are looking for, Urban Decay has a large variety of other setting sprays.

Urban Decay Highlight in Sin– When I saw this product online I was super hesitant because it is super light. I like for my highlighters to have a bronze color to them. To my surprise I love love love this highlight! I do not wear highlight on a everyday occasion, however, this will become my everyday highlight. It is a very natural color that can be build up to have that glow effect. This is a universal shade that would look great on any skin tone! Highly recommend!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara-I have repurchased this mascara 3 times!! Woah! I absolutely love this mascara! Honestly, I can not use any other mascara besides this one. The mascara gives me the volume & length I am looking for. Other mascaras do not compare for me.

 

 

Clinique Cherry Pop Lipstick– One day I was thinking that I do not have a color like this, and that I wanted to get soon. I really wasn’t expecting to get it right away. However, as you can see, I got it!! My lip collection includes a bunch of reds & pinks. I do not have a lip color that is a mixture of a red & pink. I have not previously tried any makeup products from Clinique, I have only tried their skincare products. The color is very nice on, however, I did eat with the product on and after I was done you could definitely tell I was eating & drinking. Most of my lip products last while I eat. I would have to reapply the lipstick. Overall, a great color! It looks very red in the picture, however, in person it is more of a red with pink undertones.

Screen Shot 2018-01-13 at 11.48.38 PM.png

Sephora Foot Mask-I have only ever tried a Sephora face mask before. I have never thought of trying a foot, hand, or eye mask before. My feet could use a mask with some benefits. Taking care of the entire body is essential. Since it is the winter months this foot mask will come in handy, especially since I’ve been really dry lately. I like the Sephora face mask so I am excited to try the foot mask!

Sephora 2017 Birthday Gift-I love Sephora’s Birthday Gifts! Since my birthday is in December, I already know what the gift is and how people feel about it. Overall I love Tarte as a brand and have never tried their lipgloss or blush before. I am super excited because I have heard good things about the blush. Although I rarely wear blush, I hope to get some good use from it. I can see myself wearing the lipgloss on an everyday occasion.

MAC Lipstick in Whirl– Although this product is not from Sephora, I wanted to include because I recently got this lip product when I purchased the other products. Another product I have repurchased twice. This is my everyday lip product. It goes great with every outfit and matches well with any skin tone. The formula is very creamy and slides right on. This lipstick is very  buildable and can be formulated to how you like.I have never gotten so many compliments from one product before. Definitely recommend!

Here are pictures of swatches with the products. The first picture is taken with flash and the second is not. The Fenty Beauty Primer & Foundation are a little bit runny, however, they blend nicely. I didn’t realize I have a lot of lip products in this haul. Let me know if you have tried any of these products before, or if you want to try them!!
