There are few things I enjoy more around Independence Day then the glorious smell of BBQ wafting through the air. Since nothing screams 'time to grill' like warm weather and fireworks, making your BBQ stand out above all the others can be tricky. There are so many offerings that can help make your BBQ a raging success: award winning barbecue sauce, to citronella candles, and my personal favorite grilling book. Throw on some red, white, and blue, and get to the grilling!

Platform Collage

Even though I am on the taller side, I can't help but love all the platform sandals I am seeing -- and now you can get cash back when you indulge in a pair (or two) of your own. They can give you several extra inches, yet I have found they are easier to walk in then your standard stilettos. A lot of the platforms I am seeing are significantly more sleek then their counterparts of yesteryear (anyone else thinking of the Spice Girls?). Best of all? They work for daytime and evening.

Hi my name is Laura. I am the newest blogger for Ebates. When I am not scouring the internet for the best deals, I like to spend my time watching movies, going to museums (I can often be found enjoying Blue Bottle Coffee on the SFMOMA's rooftop sculpture garden), playing with puppies, and spending lots of time outdoors. Since I like finding retro-inspired pieces, some of my favorite online shops are Urban Outfitters, ModCloth, and The Gap (I need basics too!), but I also occasionally lose many hours browsing Sephora.com since their online store is always stocked with the lipstick shade I am looking for.
Just the other day I stumbled on this lovely Tinley Road Leather Cuff. The neutral tones will go perfectly with nearly any outfit and you get cash back at Piperlime! I am excited to start posting all of my favorite finds and hottest deals.

GuavacolorSince it's health and beauty week here at Ebates, I thought now would be a great time to share my favorite summer lip color! In seasons past, I was pretty conservative when it came to my make up. You wouldn't have caught me wearing any super bright hues. That changed forever when I discovered Bobbi Brown's Cosmic Raspberry. Cosmic Raspberry is a pink so bright you gotta wear shades! I rocked that color proudly all Spring long, that is until Bobbi Brown's Guava Lip Color came into my life.

I dare you to find a lipstick that's a more perfect combination of coral and pink. Guava instantly brightens my smile and I've seen it work on a variety of skin tones. In my humble opinion, coral and Summer go hand in hand. So, if you're going to purchase one new lip color this summer, I urge you to make it Bobbi Brown's Guava! And if you purchase it through Ebates, you'll earn 4.0% cash back. So, what are you waiting for?


While we're on the subject of beauty, I hope you'll join BonBon Rose Girls for a live health and beauty chat over at the Savvy Living Community on 6/23 from 7-8 PM EST! We'll be chatting about all things health and beauty related and some fabulous prizes will be up for grabs too! Mark your calendars lovelies!

travelsizedToday's guest blogger is Shereen from Shereen Travels Cheap. We've love her no-nonsense advice on traveling smart while on a budget, and we're thrilled to have her dish out advice on another savvy topic: travel and beauty.

Packing light is a must when traveling and those 3-1-1 bags aren't that big, especially when you're flying during the summer and have to squeeze sunscreen in there, too. While you can buy it once you get there, many resorts, theme parks and grocery stores have outrageous prices on these items. I have ways you can find room in your travel bag for sunscreen and still look great in all your pictures.

Tinted Moisturizer - You may be used to taking your foundation wherever you go, but a tinted moisturizer can do double-duty as a foundation and a moisturizer. Most have built-in SPF, so you don't have to bring a second sunscreen specifically for your face.

Powder Foundation - Avoid taking two products and opt for just one with a powder foundation. Not only does it save space, but a good one, like Philosophy Supernatural Airbrushed Canvas, will be long-lasting and give you a flawless finish over your moisturizer. This can be paired with tinted moisturizer to give you more coverage.

Tinted Lip Gloss - Get a fresh summery look by bringing along a tinted lip gloss that also moisturizes. Leave your heavy lipstick at home and you also won't have to tote around a tube of lip balm. Smashbox O-Gloss brings out the natural hue of your lips, plus it gives you a slight shine and locks in moisture.

Trial Sizes - Those fun trial sizes that you get with makeup purchases are your best friend on vacation. Save those tiny tubes of mascara, lip glosses, and eye shadows, and pack them in your travel bag.

Shampoo bars - Shampoo and conditioner can take up a lot of room and also contribute the most to spillage in your bag. There's nothing worse than getting to your destination and having to wash off everything in your 3-1-1 bag because your shampoo or conditioner exploded. Shampoo bars don't ever have to go in your liquids bag, they never spill and are super easy to use. They work just like a bar of soap and have all the benefits of a great shampoo. You can even get solid conditioners which will leave your hair silky and manageable.

Use Ebates to save even more on your beauty purchases, too. With awesome stores like Sephora, Philosophy, Ulta, Drugstore.com and many more, you can find everything you need for your trip, look like a million bucks, and save a few dollars, too!

My love of sale items never ceases to amaze me. In the coldest Winter I can justify breezy tank tops, and in the Summer heat, I can visualize heavy knits. When it comes to sale items there's no better time than Summer. After all, it will get cold again! Here are my favorite June sale picks.

This Confetti Sweater Dress is festive, and can be worn on those cooler evenings. It's also on trend with this season's nautical theme.

Handbags are always a must have, and this Bucket Bag is an inexpensive way to score great style without the cost.

I love a good moccasin, but what I really love is a chic flat that is versatile and laid back. Like this Candela Flat.

Velvet may seem rediculous in Summer, but this Kate Spade Bag is flirty, and makes a great contrast to Summer linens.

Cosmetics are always a "do", and this OPI Nail Polish is so fresh, it's perfect for Summer.

This jacket from ModCloth is super cute for starters, and it's also form fitting which means no added bulk. A great Fall piece!

As women we're constantly evolving, dissecting, and changing our style. One minute boho is the look, the next we're cutting off hemlines to be a Kate Spade shoe in. While change is good, it can also become a costly and chaotic endeavor. To avoid this, one must buy wisely, which I'll be the first to admit, isn't easy for me. In an effort to always feel like I have something to wear, I've purchased a few simple, yet hard working items: The Blouse.

Lapella BlouseThis Lapella Blouse is a no brainer. Not only does it have a minimalist look, but it features a thin collar that's perfect for those days when I'm wanting a tailored look. Aside from black pants or other office appropriate attire, this top also goes well over bohemian dresses, under blazers, and with just about any trend you can think of. For just $88, it's also an affordable addition to my wardrobe. Thanks to 1.5% Cash Back from J.Crew, it's also adding more cash to my wallet.

UrbanDressWe all have our favorite stores; favorite clothing stores, home and garden depots, and beauty warehouses.Sometimes these stores have frequent sales, allowing you to snag those "must haves" without the wait. And others simply keep you on edge, until they make the biggest announcement, since well, the last sale. Urban Outfitters is somewhere in between, although despite my constant scores at this hip and mid-priced retailer, I can always seem to find more than several reasons to over indulge at one of their sales. This time they're offering $20 off purchases of $100 or more with code HELLOSUMMER. Of course, there's also 2.5% Cash Back from Ebates.

By now everyone has done a bit of Summer shopping, and has seen there share of hits vs.misses.The bevy of brightly colored tops I purchased in April seemed like a good idea, until May's humidity reminded me nothing says cool like a cotton dress. Speaking of cotton dresses, this Striped Sweater Dress is just $19.99 and provides plenty of easy breezy comfort. Don't let the name fool you, this dress isn't really heavy like a sweater, it's made from linen and is perfect for hot summer days. At $19, it's also perfect for those weekend getaways that require transitional, do-it-all pieces. You know, the kind we always complain about not owning?
