How I MAKE money while shopping!

Hey guys!
So I'm sure we have all been watching TV and on comes an Ebates commercial.  I've seen them hundreds of times and always had the same thought in my head....what's the catch?!?! and never really looked into it.

So last year around November my mom calls me and says "Jackie, have you ever used Ebates"
Long story short...Ebates is my new BFF. It's the ONLY way I shop now. I wish I was doing this a lonnng time ago!  So thanks Mom! 
And no, Ebates is not sponsoring this post haha!   I truly love this program and feel like everyone should be using it!  I mean, who doesn't love getting cash back to shop!  

You can join Ebates here.  And don't worry, you don't have to pay a PENNY to use their services.

And Just FYI, I have the Mobile App on my phone and the Ebates Button on my computer so you can use it either way!  

99% of the stores I shop at are included.  We are talking: Nordstrom, Macy's, Sephora, Old Navy, BaubleBar, Tory Burch, JCrew (just to name a few)
They have over 2,000 stores that can earn you cash back! 

How it Works


Okay so back to how it works.  Let's talk mobile first!
First, make sure you download the  Mobile App

If on our phone, just click the Ebates App and search the store you are wanting to shop at.  Once you find your store, click "Shop Now" to activate your cash back percentage and you will be sent to that store's website and shop like normal.  There's nothing more to do. 

This is how the app looks on your cell phone!

Seeeeee, I already have $192 cash back! 


On your computer, first make sure you download the   Ebates Button
 Once you go to a store's website, the Ebates button will pop up allowing you to activate your cash back.  Once you activate your cash back, just shop like normal! 

Here is how it should look on your computer.


Getting Paid

Now for the good stuff!  Every quarter, you receive a "Big Fat Check"  in the mail / Paypal with your total cash back amount for that period.  It's serious THAT easy!  No gimmicks!

You can track your cash back under your "Accounts" page and you also get an email with your cash back amount from your purchase. (sometimes, it takes a few just depends on the store)

They even have a new option where you can earn cash back in-stores.  I have yet to do this but you can read more about that here

Around Black Friday and Christmas, most stores even offer double cash back.  I did ALL my Christmas Shopping last year on Ebates and earned money back on items I was going to purchase regardless.

I'm telling you, I was skeptical at first, but my only regret is that I didn't sign up earlier. Now I can justify to my husband why the UPS truck makes frequent deliveries to our house. haha!

If you have any questions at all about it, just leave them below and I'll be happy to answer them!  Happy Shopping!

My Go To, Most Worn Tank


Hey guys!  HAPPY FRIDAY!  Today I wanted to share one of my favorite tanks for a few reasons.
1) because I  wear them allllll the time
2) SUPER affordable 
3) perfect transition piece for fall

I LOVE how this tank has a rounded hem and it covers the bootay in the back making it perfect to wear with leggings.  I can't wait to wear them with a cute cardigan or denim/moto jacket in the fall.     I have them in several colors: this pretty olive green, white and this peachy color!  Right now - Sunday Old Navy has 40% off their site so you can literally get these for under $8 bucks!  I ordered them in a tall XS.  They are a relaxed fit so if you want more of a fitted fit, you can definitely size down. I LOVE shopping at Old Navy for all my basics and pretty much Londyn's entire wardrobe.  Plus they ALWAYS have a major sale going on!  

This weekend, I'm hoping for a pretty quiet weekend.  My husband has been working long hours and had to work all last weekend SO we are hoping to sneak away for a relaxing date night. What are your plans for the weekend?

Instagram Round Up

Happy Tuesday!!!
It's time again for another instagram round up! I'm going to be posting some of my recent photos and linking everything below each picture.

On a side note, I don't know about y'all but I am DONE with this HOT weather and soooo looking forward to some cooler temps.   I'm not big on freezing weather (really don't have to worry about that too much in Texas) but there is something about fall weather that gets me so excited.  I went a little bootie crazy this year and I'm ready to bust them out and put them to good use!  I already hit up Bath and Body Works and stocked up on all my favorite fall candles during their recent sale.  Ahhhh, those are my FAVORITE candles ever!  If you follow me on snapchat (jacaniece) you saw a little preview of everything I got.  I'll do a post this week of all my favorites!

With all that being said....let's jump right on in and as always, thank you so much for stopping by!

a few favorites from the #nsale (still in stock)

Lush Blouse (under $30) // AG Jeans // Wedges // Watch // Purse // Earrings // Ring // Necklace 

Hey everyone!  Happy Friday!  Today I wanted to share a few #nsale items I got that are currently still in stock!  There are just a few days left to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale...3 to be exact! EEEEK!!!

1)  I've been loving this top sooo much that I even got it in a second color (grape leaf).  It's available in 7 colors and so pretty on.  I love how it's longer in the back! 
 Fist TTS... wearing a small.

2)  I absolutely LOVE these jeans!  They were definitely a splurge BUT the quality of these jeans are top notch!  They don't stretch out while wearing them and they are super comfortable and flattering!  It's definitely worth investing in a pair of great jeans that will last years and years to come and these will not disappoint! 
Fits TTS..wearing 26

3)  I've been wanting a leather strap watch for the longest and fell in love with this Nixon watch.  I love the unique square face and the fact that it has the date on it because I NEVER know what day it is. 

4)  THESE BOOTIES!!!  OMG I LOVE These booties!  I love how they have a wedge heel and they are no joke, soooooo comfortable!  The website says they run small but I ordered my normal size (7.5) and they fit perfect!  I like my booties to fit a little more snug though.  They also have them in an open toe here.

Not part of the Nordstrom Sale but wanted to mention this bag.  I've really been into small-medium sized cross body bags, so I originally bought this one to have a large purse to take on the plane with me on our recent trip.  Well, I quickly realized how much I've missed my large purses because I've been using it CONSTANTLY!  I love that it's reversible and I can  throw  Londyn's items in it too eliminating the need for me to carry an extra bag for her.  Even though it's reversible, I've mainly been using the side pictured and have been thinking about having my mom monogram my initials on it....thoughts???
Anyways, it's super affordable from Taget and comes in a few colors as well! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope y'all have a great weekend!  Anyone else craving some fall weather????
