Update, Ebates, and Earrings

Turns out I spoke too soon.  I'm not really completely back... my husband's injuries turned out to be a little more serious than we initially thought and he's ended up with surgery and a hospital stay.  We expect him to be just fine after a bit longer recovery, and is home now -- but that means I'm a little busier and distracted than I had been.

I did notice an ebates email today, though, that I wanted to share... I've used ebates since 2006 (my latest rebate check actually arrived today) and it's amazing how it can add up.  Right now in celebration of the company's 13th birthday, many stores are offering 13% cash back... Nordstrom and Banana Republic included.  Those special percentages are good through 11:59 pm PT today only.

I was surprised recently that I could even go through ebates when ordering from Links of London.  I've been thinking about the Effervescence Bubble Stiletto Earrings for a while now and finally put in my order.  They're one of the pairs of earrings that have been seen more than once on the Duchess of Cambridge.  I don't have anything like them and I envision getting quite a bit of wear out of them.  I'll do a review when they arrive:

I've added a button over on my sidebar, so I can refer you if you aren't already a member and would like to try it out.  Ebates did not ask me to write this post... I have never written a sponsored post and have never been sent any fabulous shoes/scarves/jewels to review -- but I will definitely let you know if that happens. :-)



  1. I love your earings and shall look forward to haring more about them, once they arrive.

    1. Thank you, Helen. I can't wait to get them.

  2. Links of London has a lovely line. Holt Renfrew carry some of their things and I have been quite impressed with their designs. Your earrings look sparkly and feminine.
    Sorry to hear that your husband's injuries required surgery. Hope that he will heal swiftly.
    Take care,

    1. Thank you Hostess! And that is good to hear on the earrings. I had only seen online.
