Valued Opinions: Easy Site. $20 to cash out (Macy’s and Amazon Gift Cards)

Survey Spot:  Cash out at $10 (via paypal). Make sure you only do the sites the offer rewards.

Do you have any that you love?!

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon

Standard

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” ~ Steve Jobs

shoes

Standard

i love shoes. no matter how you are feeling (fat day, bad hair day, tired and i want to kill everybody day… shoes always look good).

I have an addiction of sorts…

as of right now, mine are all color coded based on type and displayed in my bedroom so I can see them.

my favorite site right now is 6pm.com (and, trust, I am NOT a big enough blogger where 6pm.com paid me to say this).  Their clearance section is out of control  (considering I am on a very limited budget… clearance is my friend).

They also have an amazing clothes section and men’s shoes (which have prices that are ridiculous… ridiculously good!).

Okay. Enough with the yapping. On to pictures! Of shooeees!!!

Below are the ones I.WANT.RIGHT.NOW

 Madden Girl Mimix    $21.98

Gabriella Rocha RB Safari-Z $17.60

Nine West Ambitious $31.03

Miss Me Vanity-2 $23.97

Michael Antonio Mckey $29.40

friday!

Standard

I have to brag a bit… is that okay? (I mean it’s a little self-indulgent, but I suppose the whole blog is self-indulgent, huh?).

Ran my first 5k last night.

Amazing.

36 minutes! I am super proud of myself… especially considering that I barely passed gym through high school! I know many people run 5ks or marathons… but for somebody who is NOT a runner… I am super proud of myself.

(side note: bragging to your cat doesn’t have the same je ne sais as actually running alongside  somebody you love or having somebody you love cheering you on.  However, I’ll take the snuggles where I can get them. Thanks KITTY!!!)

Happy Friday!

Cheers!
