Stevie Nicks and The Pretenders concert 11/4/16

The Pretenders

On 11/4/16 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida I had the pleasure of seeing one of my idols perform for the second time. I had seen Stevie Nicks when she toured with Fleetwood Mac on May 17, 2003 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ when I lived up there and they were great so I was really looking forward to seeing her solo.  The Pretenders opened for her and I had never seen them live before.  My husband is a huge fan of Chrissy Hynde and had seen The Pretenders in concert many years ago.  He told me she was really good and he was right.  Thoroughly enjoyed her set and didn’t realize how many songs that I knew!  She came out later on when Stevie was on stage and sang Stop Dragging My Heart Around with her.

Stevie has this presence on stage that is like no other and owns the stage as soon as she steps on it.  Her hand jestures, her dancing, her raspy voice, her outfits and her flowing hair mesmerize you. You don’t want to look away because you don’t want to miss anything.  I think my favorite song that she performs live has got to be Gold Dust Woman.  I was never a really big fan of the song on record but when you see her perform it, it’s amazing!  If you haven’t seen it, go on YouTube and find a live performance of it. Unbelievable!  She played most of my favorites and some songs I had never heard before. She also gave a background of when and how some of the songs were written and told some interesting stories.  I highly recommend seeing her while she’s on tour this year. Well worth it!

*Please excuse my crappy pictures.  I didn’t realize how bad they were until I got home.  You get the “picture” though (see what I did there?). Also, my stupid phone kept telling me that my storage was full so I had to delete pictures and probably deleted the good ones.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!*

Making Money During the Holiday Season and ANYTIME! 

Did you know that there are ways to make money through apps and websites for everyday things that you already buy for your household?  No?  Well there is!  I’m going to talk about 3 of them that I use all the time.

  1. Ibotta – When you sign up for Ibotta you get cash back for purchasing everyday things such as groceries, pharmacy, clothing, alcohol, restaurants, online shopping and convenience stores.  All you have to do is download the app on to your smartphone and you’re off to saving!  You can earn MORE money when you add your friends and THEY spend money.  With the teamwork you can earn bonus money and you can also earn money from referrals.  If you haven’t signed up for Ibotta yet and you sign up through me you will receive $10 when you sign up and redeem your first rebate. I will also receive $5 for you signing up through me and $5 more when you redeem your first rebate.
  2. Ebates – When you sign up for Ebates you also earn cash back just as you do for Ibotta. With Ebates though they use a percentage system that can range from 1% to 10% OR MORE of your online order. For example, my IPad battery died on me a few weeks back so I decided to purchase an iPad Pro from Walmart. I went through the Ebates app, I clicked on Walmart, activated the 4% back, ordered the iPad, got free shipping to store and picked up in 3 hours! It’s really a no brainer!  You get paid quarterly and they automatically deposit it into your PayPal account.  If you sign up through me and spend $25 you will get $10 and I will get $25 !  Refer YOUR friends and earn MORE money!
  3. Swagbucks – When you sign up for Swagbucks there are all different types of ways to earn gift cards. You can watch movie trailers, do surveys, answer polls and enter in codes that they post on their FB page or they send notifications to you with codes or special offers.  It’s fun but I have yet to earn a gift card because I really don’t spend as much time as I should to earn them!  I’d rather scroll through things that DONT make me money like drama filled Facebook or other social media platforms! Hahaha!  Time to reevaluate my priorities!

If you haven’t joined any of the apps above, I suggest you do so.  Why not save some more money on top of department sales and on things you already purchase!

Have fun!!!
