Maybe it comes from spending too much time in 20-something's apartments full of Ikea furniture, but I always get excited to see vintage looking decor choices. There are so many ways to earn cash back while getting that antique look!

It has been months, maybe even years since I picked up a new handbag. I think I have come to rely too heavily on my favorite satchel (bought at a vintage shop in Milan), so I have been paying close attention to all my options. There are so many great bags (and Cash Back for the taking) out there right now.

I concede that I am a bit of a magpie and I just love gold toned jewelry in the summer. It catches light beautifully. There are so many reasonable options (and Cash Back), some more classic and some more costume-y.

Whether it's from the extra rest and relaxation, time in the sun, or even being a bride - summer is when you radiate a natural glow. We've pulled together a few simple beauty tips that can help you maintain your radiance all season long. 

Plus we want to hear from you: How do you stay Summer Beautiful? We'll select an answer to win a gift basket of Elizabeth Arden products worth over $350.

One of our favorite things about summer is spending time outside, soaking up the sun...but not too much of it. Love the sun, but protect yourself from its negative effects. Using a facial moisturizer with sunscreens is your first line of defense against skin damaging UV rays. Environmental factors, such as pollution and cigarette smoke can also be harmful to your skin. Idebenone, the powerful antioxidant found in PREVAGEĀ® Day Ultra Protection Anti-aging Moisturizer SPF 30, helps to guard your skin against all of these skin stressors while also supporting its natural repair process to address  any existing damage.

Playing up your pout is a great way to feel dressed up on days when it's too hot to wear much makeup. To get lovely lips that last, apply a lip primer with SPF protection like our Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick SPF 15. Then layer on a lipstick in one of this season's on-trend bright shades, like coral or pink.

You can accentuate your glow by adding a touch of blush to the apples of your cheeks. A peachy shade, like our Pure Finish Mineral Powder Cheekcolor in Sunkissed Coral, will give you a soft, natural flush. 


Today only, you'll get Double Cash Back when you shop at ElizabethArden.com through Ebates, so "get glowing!" To enter to win the Elizabeth Arden Summer Glow Giveaway, submit your answer to "How do you stay Summer beautiful?" in the comments of this post or on the Ebates Facebook wall before Friday July 29 at 11:59 PM PST. Check back here on Monday when we'll post the "glowing" winner!

Even though the sun is still shining bright and warm, the school year is *just* around the corner. Although the summer was over I always loved getting a new backpack for school.

With an exciting vacation just around the corner, I must admit I have caught a case of the travel bug. When I go abroad I must admit that I value form just as much as function - I am lucky that there is an abundance of beautiful functional travel accessories available AND I am getting cash back, which is always wonderful since vacations rarely come cheap. From adorable luggage to worldwide adapters, you can get cash back on everything you need for your trip.
