Recently someone recommended that I create a post about my favorite things and I figured, hey, I like stuff, I like to write, particularly about myself, so sure, I will give this a try!
That being said, I bring to you…drumroll please…or not…just escalated excitement…and…
THE CURVY MILLENNIAL’S 3 FAVE THINGS OF NOVEMBER!
I am sure you have seen the commercials or the online ads and ignored them, as I have in the past, but stop ignoring these…seriously! Ebates is absolutely one of my favorite things that I have discovered this month. I have made close to $40 just from my normal shopping and the start to my holiday shopping!
So what is Ebates? Essentially, Ebates gets paid a commission when they send their members to certain websites (like most of the major stores you already shop at!) and when you make a purchase, Ebates shares their commission with you through either a mailed check or Paypal account.
You can go to the Ebates app and head to the stores from there or, if you are shopping from your computer, you can add the Ebates plugin to your browser. When you visit a site that Ebates is affiliated with, an alert pops up letting you know how much cash you can earn back from a purchase. Aside from having to go through Ebates to the stores, you’re essentially getting paid to shop. It’s one of the new highlights of my life.

#2 HOMEDICS BUBBLE BLISS DELUXE FOOT SPA
Feet getting tired from all of that holiday shopping? Or from not getting enough exercise? Or just from an issue that has yet to be diagnosed?
ME TOO! But luckily, a thoughtful companion, who will be discussed at a later date, bought me this little number when I was complaining about my feet hurting in the recent past.
What do you think of when you read “Bubble Bliss Deluxe Foot Spa”? I think of sitting in the pedicure chair at the nail salon, feet soaking in very warm, almost hot, water, bubbles parading around my toes. Ah…Bliss.
Get it?! They are not bluffing when they say “Bubble Bliss”. This is an affordable relief for your feet that comes with different attachments, massages and cleans up easily. For a little extra fun and relief, try adding some bath salts or Epsom Salt. The link* is above if you want to check out, gift yourself or someone else!
# 3 OXO Silicone Spatula
If you bake, or try to bake, I want you to get ready because if you get your hands on one of these spatulas, your baking life is going to change for the better.
I am a dollar store spatula girl. While I consider myself an avid baker (avid may be a strong word), I don’t necessarily believe that you need to spend more than a couple of bucks on certain necessities to create an outstanding finished product. Then someone gifted me this spatula and my whole thought process semi-changed.
You know how when you are using a spatula to, lets say, scrape all of the cookie dough from the sides of the bowl (partially to eat yourself, partially to bake) and the dough gets stuck around that groove that connects the handle to the spatula head on the majority of spatulas? If you don’t know what I talking about, please go bake pretty much anything, use a typical spatula and you will totally see what I mean.
And when you do see what I mean– go buy one of these. It easily scrapes dough and mix from the sides of bowls, pans, etc. AND can wash clean easily. They are also heat proof up to 600 degrees and dishwasher safe. Just trust me on this one; the link* is above for yourself or for the baker in your life!
Bonus Fave Thing from Addy!
Addy’s fave thing of November is: RACHAEL RAY DOG TREATS
Recently, I wanted to change Addy’s dog food and her dog walker recommended Rachael Ray’s line of food as the ingredients tend to be much better than many of the other dog foods on the market. Since switching over to this food, I noticed that there are also treats.
Treats with real food names and then there was one that caught my eye. Get ready for it…
Rachael Ray Nutrish PAWSTA –
and the treats look like pasta!
The treats are beef filled but look like rigatoni. Addy is not a food motivated dog, or should I say, not a dog food motivated dog. She is motivated by chicken, turkey, bacon or anything of the like any day of the week but if it is specifically made for a dog, eh, she rather not.
However, she will literally take these treats out of my hand and gobble them down.
Addy highly recommends them and recommends them to all of her pup pals! Use the link* above to spoil your furry friends.
Happy End of November – I look forward to sharing more of my fave things with you as they come along (and I am sure Addy does too…)
