Interested in earning an extra few bucks without even leaving your house?

Get paid to search the internet, read emails, complete surveys and more at InboxDollars.com. Click the link here to check out the site: http://www.inboxdollars.com/?r=ref17396914 
Do you already check emails?

Do you search the internet?

Do you like giving your opinion?

Do you like extra cash?

Then why not get paid to spend 15-20 minutes out of your day to do the same things you would do anyway?

I recently received my check for $30 bucks and have earned another $16 dollars in just a few days by completing 1-2 surveys every other day and using the Inbox Dollars tool for searching online. Now you do have to earn at least $30 dollars before requesting your check for payout - which is understandable because anything less is probably not worth the processing fees. I typically search for things online and I also do things like paid surveys, downloading apps to my phone and watching short videos. All of those activities pay a few cents and add up up to cash pretty quickly. There are also opport…

3 Music Videos That Positively Highlight Brown-Skinned Women

If you are anything like me, you like to look at models and celebrities sometimes for motivation when working on your weight loss and beauty goals. It really helps me to see women that look similar to me when I am looking for encouragement. 

This can be difficult when I pick up a fitness magazine or look at a music video and see mainly women that look completely different from me in skin tone.  Don't get me wrong, I appreciate all people in their varying sizes, colors, etc., but I do also like to see women with dark skin that looks closer to my own when I am trying to envision myself being at their level of fitness or beauty (i.e. hair, glowing skin, etc.). 

Luckily, there are a couple of videos that I've really enjoyed for what seems to be a celebration of brown skin. Check them out below! 
1. Melanin Brown (Pretty Brown) - Remy Ma, featuring Chris BrownWhat a variety of warm skin tones in this video! There's some chocolate, cinnamon, brown sugar and everything in between. I…

On the road to finding my purpose...

As I explore this idea of finding my passion, I've come across many varied opinions on the subject. I scoured Google, YouTube and other social media channels to gain a consensus around what others have done to find and develop their own passions. I was surprised and comforted by the amount of information available. There are plenty of people in the same boat as me. Adults (young and old alike) that haven't yet discovered their passion or purpose in life.


With so many viewpoints on the subject, I found a Ted Talk that declares that there is no need to find your passion. Passions change. You will find your passion eventually as you live out your life, the speaker encourages. Well, I do agree partially with this. Do I think that a person should not continue looking for their purpose? No, not at all. I think there are people living out their passion every day - doing things that give them pure joy. I think that to the speaker's point, people should not stress or refrain from l…

What is Your Passion?

This past weekend I celebrated my 5-year college reunion. The weekend was filled with various activities and things were kicked off with a networking event. Things were going well, I was able to meet new people and catch up with old acquaintances. While there I spoke with someone who I believe was from my graduating class. He asked me two questions that at first glance would seem simple, "what do you do?"  and "do you like what you do?". Standard things to ask while networking. Typically I give pretty generic responses. "Yeah, I work in HR yadda yadda yadda,.. and yes, I like what I do fine, I do this and that... but this weekend I gave a more honest answer.

After mentioning my career field I said, "I like what I do some days." What made me answer in this way? I don't know. Folks say that alcohol encourages truth-telling, well maybe. I only had a few sips of wine, but maybe it was just enough to open up in a small way to someone I barely knew. Th…

InboxDollars vs. SendEarnings - Which Earns You More Money?

I have been a member of both InboxDollars and SendEarnings since late 2015. After reviewing my previous earnings I noticed that I have made $55.55 more on the InboxDollars platform than the SendEarnings one. This was pretty surprising to me, as both offer similar money earnings tasks - or so I thought! Take a look below to see what InboxDollars offers in comparison to SendEarnings.

TV Earnings
One great addition to the InboxDollars site in the past year has been the TV section. Users are now able to earn cash by simply watching TV. Now I will say that you will not be watching Netflix shows or anything of the like. However, the TV snippets include everything from trending stories to tech, health, or celebrity specific news. Now, one thing that gets a little annoying is the fact that often times some of the same ads play on the screen, but if you can suffer through a few of these ads you'll earn a nice chunk of change by simply watching the news. You'll also get the option to pla…

My Favorite African Models

I like to get motivation from models. Often times I look at their pictures to help me continue my journey to achieve my beauty and fitness goals. Looking at what could potentially be my end result really helps me eat healthier and workout. Of the many models that I aspire to, three happen to be African born. Here is my list of top African models!

1. Fatima Said

Whew! I have loved this lady ever since I first saw her on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 10. I always thought she was one of the prettiest girls on the show of any cycle. She is Somali-American and currently with IMG Models. She is 30 years old now and still extremely gorgeous. Actually she doesn't seem to have changed much since she was on the TV show. Simply FLAWLESS! Keep rocking girl.
