Welcome to the second event in the Spring+Summer=Sprummer giveaway event! This part of the event is sponsored by eshakti.com. Eshakti.com features women’s clothing in sizes 0-36W. They will completely customize your clothing so everything you get from them fits just right.

I got the chance to review a dress from Eshakti.com. You can see it in the picture above. I absolutely LOVE it. I receive compliments every time I wear this dress. I’ve worn it probably five times since I got it and it never fails to get a response. The thing I love about this dress is that it fits me just right. It’s so hard to find clothes that fit me in the chest area, but the customization really makes a difference. It’s really flattering on my body and it has pockets. POCKETS! You can’t tell just from looking at it that the pockets are there, but all of the dresses I got have pockets. You can opt to have the dress made without them, but why would you? If you are the type of person who does not like pockets on their dress…well I don’t know if we can be friends. No, I’m totally kidding, but pockets make an awesome addition in my opinion.

I got four dresses from Eshakti.com. They often run a buy 2 get one free event, which is what I did, and then I got to order the one you see in the picture to review so I have four dresses total. I plan on doing my school clothes shopping through Eshakti next year because I just love the way you can have everything customized to fit. The clothes are high quality fabric too so I’m not worried about them falling apart the way I have to with some other brands that I’ve shopped at(not calling any names but it rhymes with Payne Cry-ent. I mean, I have a credit card with them so it’s not like I don’t shop them at all I just know I have to be extra careful cause some of their stuff is CHEAP).

Whether you are plus size or not, you might benefit from having  clothes custom made to fit your body. Have you ever seen a dress that you liked but wished you could change something about it? With eshakti.com, you can. You can change the length, the arms, and even the type of collar.

The way it works is that you shop like you would normally do. You can select a size from 0-36W and go with it the way it is made, or you can customize it to fit your body specifically. You simply enter your measurements, and the dress you order will come in the measurements you specify. Once you enter your measurements one time, they are saved for you. It can’t really get any easier to get custom made clothing in your size.

And it’s not just dresses either. You can shop for skirts, tops, shorts, pants, and jeans- EVERYTHING a gal could need.

Thanks to eshakti.com, we have 2 $25 gift certificates to give away so there are two winners for this giveaway. There’s only one catch- you have to register here to enter. Why? Well, you can only spend the gift certificate on Eshakti, so you have to be registered to spend it! And when you register through this link, you will get $40 off your first order!

The gift certificates work like cash. You can use them on top of any other discounts you can get on eshakti.com. They often do buy 2 get 1 free or buy 3 get 2 free. I would wait for that to use the certificate!

So to win, register here, and then use the rafflecopter widget below. There are a lot of great ways to get entries in so check back daily to see if any new entries are added to the form and to complete your daily entries to win! Also, make sure you entered to win $100 to Ebates here. May the odds be ever in your favor :).

How to get summer ready heels

 photo summer ready heels_zpsmgwhc9kf.png

Do you have summer ready heels? Are they smooth and soft? Or are they dry and parched? I know what it is like to have gross, dry heels. I too used to suffer from this condition, and here is the embarrassing proof. These are my heels before reviewing a Naturalico Rechargeable Electronic Pedicure Foot File and Callus Remover.

dry, unhappy feet

eek. I would normally not show these woofers in this condition but I am doing this for you all.

This is my heels right after moisturizing with lotion. But as you know, no amount of lotion is going to moisturize your heels when they are in this condition. Ugh!

What’s a girl to do? Well, one thing you can do is use a pedicure foot file. You’ve probably seen something like this on television.

A pedicure file is a thing of beauty. We’ve probably all done the whole foot file thing where your file the thick skin on your foot down to a more presentable level. If you’re like me, though, you don’t want to spend time doing that. I mean, it totally works, but who wants to spend time having to file manually? That’s one reason while we go to get pedicures, right? Well, if you want to spend less money getting pedicures, buy this foot file. The difference between this type of foot file and the one you’ve probably used is it’s electric. Boogy woogy woogy. You can charge the battery and use it cordlessly. The file has a rotating head that you simply hold against your foot to file it for you. It requires, like, no effort.

You saw my before picture. Well, here’s the during picture so you can see the skin that comes off. Kinda gross, I know, but I wanted you too see what this baby is capable of.

Okay, so are you ready for the after? Here goes:

2015-06-05 12.45.46

They are soooo much better. After filing my feet down I can actually feel someone touching them again hahaha. You know what I mean though, right? They can get so dry that you can barely feel someone touching them. Poor feet! So you tell me, do you think this really works? You betcha. Get one for yourself here. You’ll thank me later.

The first giveaway is sponsored by Ebates. You’ve heard of Ebates, right? It’s only the best place to get cash back shopping online! Read on to find out how you can score big with Ebates this Sprummer.

All you have to do is sign up for an account with Ebates, choose the store you want to receive cash back from, and choose one of the store’s current Ebates promotions.

I am a blogger. Yeah, you’re shocked, right? I am NOT an SEO expert. I have some plugins that are supposed to help with SEO, but I don’t really know all of the ins and outs of SEO. For those of you who have no clue what I’m talking about, SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. SEO is used to make a website more visible to a search engine so that it is able to get high ranking and the most traffic possible. Who wouldn’t want that?!?

Well, here’s the thing. As a blogger, oftentimes we just write blog posts and hope that someone will stop by and read them. We can promote them through social media as much as we can but if we can get help from Google, Bing, and Yahoo, it’s much easier to get readers to see your content.

I’ve always wanted to take an SEO course to help with my blogging efforts. I am reviewing a course called “How I Hit #1 on Google: The 2015 Complete SEO Course” and it’s by Matt Jensen. Wow am I glad I did! I am not all the way through with the course yet, but with just the little bit I’ve done so far I have seen improvements in my ratings from Google. There is this page you can go to on Google, Google Developers, that you can use to get some insights on your webpages. I recommend you do that if you haven’t before. Here’s the link. Anyway, I am going through the course and I get to this page to check my website and find out that there are some things I can be doing to make my page more favorable in the eyes of Google. If I were by myself I would have NO CLUE what I could do to improve. However, with Matt’s course, I was able to improve in both mobile and desktop. I wish I had taken a screen shot of what my score was before, but it was 55 for mobile and I think it was like 60 for desktop, but I can’t remember exactly what it was for the desktop. Now, both of my scores are 74. I can still improve! I haven’t even been all the way through the course yet!

What I like about this course is that Matt doesn’t assume you know anything! He takes you step by step and you can see exactly what he is doing so you can follow along. What I would do is pull up my blog in one tab and his course in the other. I would pause it when I needed to so I could follow along with the suggestions.

If you are not really knowledgeable about SEO and you have a blog or website, I think you should try this course. Here are some of the things this course covers:

Improve conversions 100% by increasing the speed of your site

Make your site mobile-friendly (more people using smartphones than desktop)

Optimize every post/page of your site so that Google see your content as high-quality, authoritative and informative

Increase the amount of time people spend on your site

Massively boost click-through rate with a rarely used technique

Build links from high-SEO visibility sites

Put your links and site on the 1st page of Google every time

Lead your visitors from informational posts to purchase pages

Create 240+ backlinks for your local business today

Get your website mentioned on high traffic news domains (CNN, NY Times)

Go viral with 2 amazing plugins and one proven strategy

Do any of these things sound like things that could help you on your blog or website? If so, I have some awesome savings for you. You can get this course which normally sells for $399 for just $19! Use this code: https://www.udemy.com/seo-ultimate-guide/?couponCode=FORYOU.

For under $20 you can get some improvements on your blog or website that can help with sales and conversions all without hiring an SEO expert. Here is the code again: https://www.udemy.com/seo-ultimate-guide/?couponCode=FORYOU
