What I Am Feeling This March
Mood:  not sure
Now Playing: What I Am Feeling This Month

With the remake of The Clash of the Titans (opening on April 2), one of my childhood favorite movies, I’m knee deep in Greek mythology. I’m thoroughly enjoying Mythology: Timeless Tales of Gods and Heros by Edith Hamilton. I’m wishing I could find my A-paper from college comparing Dinoysis’ followers’ cannibalistic sacrifices with Catholicism’s communion ceremony. (Don’t ask. I was a bit of a freak in college.)



For the last two or three years, I’ve whipped myself into a virtual survey & review frenzy. Through these various programs, I earn points, cash, products, and gift cards. These things come in hand for the cheapskate in me, but it is starting to wear me out. I’m involved in so many that I don’t know how to prioritize. The one I’m feeling the most this month, however, is I-Say because they pay cash once you reach a certain point.  Below is a list of some of the programs I belong to that you should try.


Ipsos I-Say:

Daily Makeover Surveys:

InStyle Magazine Trendsetters:

Allure magazine:

Glamour magazine:

My Points:




I am also big on entering contests. If I didn’t win anything, I’d probably stop. My favorite blog right now is “Free! Grechen,” which lists beauty and fashion giveaways from around the net (and sometimes from around the world).


Polyvore is a fashion lover's virtual idea board. You can make up an array of outfits complete with accessories, background pictures, text, and music. It is definitely a grown-up fashionista's best friend. I can spend hours on this site, which has resulted in many a sleepless night.


What I'm Listening To: Body & Soul Compilation, Vol. 1

What I'm Reading: The Next Big Thing by Johanna Edwards

What I'm Watching: Gossip Girls

What I'm Wearing: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Primer Skin Transformer (good for dry skin, leaves me a bit oily)
