Resources – Products I use and love

Welcome to my resources page! Here you can find all of the products, services, and companies that I love. I’ve broken down the items in a couple of different categories to help you figure out what resources you are looking for. Some of these products have already been discussed on my blog, and some will be featured in the future! Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, or sign up for whatever program suits your needs.

Apps to Make Money

Stash – I’ve always found the stock market to be confusing. Stash is a fun and easy way to start investing in your future. When I first started off with Stash, it felt like I was playing a game with the Stock Market. I am currently getting a great return on my investments with Social Media Mania and American Innovators. By clicking my referral link you can receive $5 for free to start investing!

Mr. Rebates – Mr. Rebates is a fun easy way to earn cashback from your favorite online retailers. Anytime I shop online, I make sure to check the percentage of cash back I can earn.  Use my referral link to start saving earning money now.

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

Ebates – Ebates is a more popular version of Mr. Rebates, but usually has lower cash back opportunities. Use my referral link to start saving earning money now.

Travel Resources

Priority Pass – I cannot go anywhere without my Priority Pass, there is just something about visiting a lounge and being able to relax instead of stress out that makes this resource so great. Right now ou can Save up to 25% on Priority Pass airport lounge access. Feel free to check out my blog post review on Vancouver’s Plaza Premium Lounge.

Lonely Planet – I love using Lonely Planet’s website, ebooks, and books as research for finding out what to do at my next vacation destination. I am a part of the Lonely Planet Pathfinders group which means I reach out and assist other travelers on the message boards to assist with their planning and answering questions. I also promote my blog on the message board to help drive traffic. Click here to learn more about their products.


IHG – I’ve always traveled with IHG. Back in the day, my paw-paw would tell me that he loved to stay at the Holiday Inn and that love for the hotel group is something that I still carry. I adore this hotel group so much that I even have the IHG Credit card and use it to get my free night each year! Click here to learn more about booking.

Planning ahead has it's perks. Book early and members save 15% or more!

Radisson Blu – Even though I’ve only stayed at the Radisson Blu connected to the Mall of America (click here to read!) I fell in love with this brand. With airport to hotel pick up, nice staff, a great rewards program. What is not to like?

Blogging Apps

BlueHost – Plaid Shirt Yoga Pants is hosted on Bluehost. Why? Because they make it incredibly easy to get a new site up and running with their one-click automatic WordPress Blog installation (which is what I also used!). At $3.49 per month, this is a steal because Bluehost has excellent customer service and I haven’t had an issue since my first blog post.

Tailwind– Tailwind is a great app to help boost your Pinterest presence. It allows you to schedule your Pinterest pins days, weeks, even months ahead of time! I love looking at the analytics via Tailwind to see what is working and what isn’t. Sign up through this link and get a month free of using Tailwind!

Tailwind Visual Marketing Suite

Creative Market – Like my Theme? I currently use the Natalie Blog and Shop Theme. Maybe one day I will open up a shop 🙂 but I really like the layout and the widgets that come already plugged in with this theme. There are other exciting products like Graphics, Templates, Fonts, and Add-Ons that I haven’t explored using yet.

Grammarly – I used the premium version of Grammarly on all of my blog posts, social media posts, and even emails! I signed up for the one year plan which comes to $11.66 a month but is billed as one payment of $139.95. There are other options to sign up which are the monthly $29.95 and quarterly $19.98 plans. This app comes in handy in my blogging life and everyday life – click here to sign up for Grammarly.

Blog Courses

I am currently enrolled in the Profit From Your Passion course but the Blogger (Krista Dickson) who teaches that course also has two more courses!  Pageviews From Pinterest and Blogging Babe’s Handbook. If these two courses are anything like Profit From Your Passion you are in for a real treat! I plan on taking these courses once I’m done with Profit From Your Passion.

Affiliate Marketing

Awin – is one of my favorite affiliate programs. Their interface is very easy to use, and they work with a variety of brands worldwide including Awin asks for a $5 deposit to sign up, but you receive that back in its entirety with your first payment!

Share a Sale – is another of my favorite affiliate programs. They’ve connected me to brands like GrammarlyTailwind, and Spanx!
