Happy Labor Day Weekend folks. If you are enjoying a longer weekend – I hope you find something wonderful to do instead of having to work. If you have to work – I hope you have an enjoyable experience. Either way, I hope that this is a great weekend for all of you.

I am lucky enough to have Labor Day off so I will probably be spending time with family and friends – maybe a beach day. There are some hurricane and tropical storm warnings out here in Hawaii so we just have to go where the weather guides us. Wish me luck!

Aside from extra days off one of the other great things about Labor Day is all the great sales and deals available! If you’re like me – you want to avoid the mall if possible so online shopping in your pajamas is the way to go. I went ahead and found some of my favorite deals to share with all of you so take a look below for more information.

Join Ebates for Cash Back

Before you go any further I want to recommend that you sign up for Ebates. Why? Because makes shopping online so much fun because you never know what kind of savings you will get. They offer coupons and cash back at so many different websites that you are bound to find a deal at many of your favorite online stores that you normally wouldn’t even know about.

So before you shop online again – sign up for a FREE Ebates account. A lot of stores are having double cash back offers for Labor Day so make sure you check out that section as well. You can search the website for cash back offers and special coupons. I always find at least 10 different places I planned on shopping at that are offering cash back!

If you are a Chrome user like myself you can also install the Ebates Chrome Browser Extension. I love the extension because once you install it and start shopping online it will alert you if there is a cash back offer or coupon available. Super easy to use and activate during your shopping trip.

So stop what you are doing, open another tab in your browser, create an Ebates account and come back to shopping these deals.

Flashback Friday’s: Mercury Retrograde Edition

Mercury Retrograde is NO JOKE. I know people make fun of it, however, I really feel this is the time when The Universe takes all the things you may be worried about and says “challenge accepted”. Let me just say, this post is going to be more of a complaining rant – but you gonna be alright and you have been warned lol.

Anywho, I hope that you have had a wonderful week and that things haven’t gone too crazy for you. It is Friday – so enjoy this post with a glass of wine and I would highly recommend that you back up your files while you read.

Life, Life

It seems like everything that could go wrong is just like “heyyyyyyyyyyy Rose, we are coming for ya” this week. Like what is really going on? I don’t want to really go into everything at this moment but if you follow me on Twitter or Snapchat I’m sure you have read/heard a bit of my complaining about the more personal issues that have been happening lately.

School & Work Life

With a new semester comes new responsibilities and I promised myself that this semester I would do significantly better than I did last semester. For me this includes getting homework, studying and projects done well ahead of time. Well this past week I was doing well until one evening I went to take my online quiz and the WiFi went out. I took that as a sign to go stretch, drink water, relax and so on.

Well when I came back the WiFi was still going in and out with no reliable connection. My laptop also decided that at this moment it wanted to do an update. No biggie – I like to keep my laptop updated. So I clicked on the “update and restart” button and walked away. It restarted but didn’t update. I tried a couple more times – no update. So I tried the “update and shutdown” option – still wasn’t updating. At this point I was so frustrated.

I tried one more time and it updated. This was apparently a huge update which required my laptop to restart a few times and when it finally updated and the WiFi was back on… it was 3 hours after I had planned on taking my quiz. I was beyond annoyed and once I logged back on to my computer my little sticky note was missing (luckily I was able to find it) and my background image was gone and it was defaulted to the hideous blue windows screen. Needless to say I did not do my quiz that day.

Blog Life

If you follow me on Twitter you will know that last weeks Flashback Friday’s post didn’t post. I was having technical issues and my post literally vanished. I keep searching for it and I’m just really not sure what occurred. I am just going to pout about it for one more day and move on. HA!

Aside from the post not publishing on time because of the WiFi issue I mentioned above (which seems to keep happening off and on this week) it was extremely difficult to work on blog posts the way I normally do but I was able to get enough things done that I feel semi-accomplished. I am hoping next week will be better.

One good thing that happened this week is that I was contacted by someone to collaborate with them which was super exciting for me. I look forward to sharing more about that in the future.

Currently listening to:

The 20/20 Experience – Justin Timberlake

Currently snacking on:

Smartfood Delight White Cheddar Popcorn

Alright, enough of me complaining. Mercury Retrograde isn’t that bad (I guess). And as long as I don’t dwell on the “bad” things it won’t bring about more of the same. It can be a growing and learning time as well. The overall message I have been getting lately is to back up everything and expect delays.

If you don’t really know about Mercury Retrograde or what the “big deal” is, here are some articles to help you out:

Flashback Friday’s: Side Hustle & School Flow

flashback fridays hertaintedlips

Life, Life

Not sure why but I have been listening to Drake nearly every day this week. This particular album gets me pumped.

If I die, I’m a legend.

I haven’t been doing anything overly exciting to report but this weekend is my brother’s birthday so I will be having a lot of family fun time over the weekend. I’m sure it will include movies, music, good food, laughs and more. Nothing wrong with that!

School & Work Life

Now that school officially starts for me next week there are going to be a lot of changes happening in my life including my work schedule. I will be working less days (and hours) which is fine because I will need that time for studying and working on school projects. It also means that I have more time to work on my business and projects. I am actually super excited about that.

One thing I am working on is creating a “work” schedule for my side hustling. I get distracted fairly easily at times so I have to schedule things in smaller blocks. I am still trying to figure out if I should do more days with less blocks or less days with more blocks. I’m going to test out my first “schedule” next week and see how it goes.

One thing that is driving me bonkers is our WiFi. With school and work done primarily online I need to have WiFi that I can rely on. I am thinking about getting a stick so that I always have a backup when needed.

Side Hustler Tips & Resources:

Blog Life

Per usual, a lot of behind the scenes things have been going on with my blogging. I am changing my blog task schedule to fit better with what I am trying to accomplish by 2017. I am excited about what I have been doing and the things that I have planned for the near future.

Things I enjoyed this week:

Flashback Friday’s: August Ramblings

So week 2 of August is in the wind! How has this new month been treating you? For myself things have been going much better than the first 7 months of the year. HA! So I’m happy to say I am in a good place right now. I hope that things continue to go smoothly througout the rest of year.

Anywho, welcome to Flashback Friday’s – my way of sharing what I have been up to during the week with all of my readers. If you are new here – thank you for stopping by. Don’t be afraid to say hello in the comments – I promise I don’t bite… usually 😃 But seriously, thank you for stopping by and make sure you take a look around to see what else has been going on.

Life, Life

Besides trying to survive this humidity, things have been going fairly well lately. I have been planning some self-care into my schedule along with a staycation hopefully in the near future. I have been trying to schedule in more time doing things that bring me joy and it has been working well so far.

Last weekend I went and met up with a friend for lunch and checked out an exhibit at one of the museums – that was a nice way to spend what would have otherwise been just a lazy day at home with the fan blasting on me. I even made a point to stop at one of the beaches on my way home from a family gathering and just walk along the shore enjoying the sunset and cool summer evening. I hope for more days like those.

During the week I also broke my “don’t go anywhere after coming home and taking my bra off during a weeknight” rule and met up with a friend that was in town. So happy that I dragged myself out of the house to meet up for drinks and some good laughs. Maybe I do have a little bit of a social life. lol

For those of you that have known me for awhile know I have had so many different health issues in the past couple of years. Well I am happy to say that aside from the heat I have been feeling really well lately. I have been eating healthier and working out a bit more as well so my body has really been feeling great. Wish me luck with keeping this up as I approach another semester in college.

Work Life

Work almost seems like a stand still while we wait for the department we work with to get their act together. I am still debating on getting a second job to supplement my income but I enjoy the schedule that I have – no nights or weekends – something that I am not sure I am ready to sacrifice (again.) We shall see how things go. Monster.com has been sending me the most random messages for jobs that I am not even qualified for. HA! Maybe they know something that I don’t know?

School Life

So… I cannot believe that the new semester starts in 10 days. The farther away it was the more prepared I felt. Now that it is less than 2 weeks away I am feeling anxious – mainly because last semester was a bit of a roller coaster for me. But I have chosen to stay positive and not freak out over it. Say a little prayer for me please.

I spoke to the Academic Advising office today and found out I actually have 1 less course to take than I initially had. That is such a huge relief. This has been such a long, exhausting and stressful process for me but I won’t go into the crappy details. Just wish me luck!

Blog Life

Due to the crazy weather we had over the weekend my blog time that I had planned out did not go quite the way that I wanted. WiFi outages and a leaky ceiling took me from what was supposed to be a productive day. This weekend I think things will go a little smoother.

One thing that I have been thinking about lately is that I really need to start doing videos/vlogs. I am so nervous about doing videos and feel super uncomfortable on camera most of the time (unless I’m being my goofy self). If you follow me on Snapchat you probably notice what a goof ball I am. But from a blogging and business standpoint I do need to get serious about added videos to my blog posts – especially when I do product reviews.

As a blogger that often gets paid (in money, discounts or products) for reviews I lose out on a lot of potential income because I do not usually do videos. If you a vlogger what are some of your tips to get started? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter.

P.S. What do you think about Instagram‘s video vs Snapchat? Are you loyal to Snapchat? I’m curious to know.
