Get Paid To Categorize Phone Calls

Sounds easy enough, right? It is, actually. 

So this website called Humanatic allows you to categorize a call (did a qualified employee answer/help the customer, no answer, etc). It's really easy, and I'm glad I found it. 

This in no way should be a full-time job or your only source of income, but I've read on the forums that people can make up to $150 a week (or even up to $50 a day). Though, you won't start off making that. You'll start off making about 1-2 cents per call, and as you prove your worth you'll unlock more categories which pay more and more, up to about 25 cents per call. 

They also offer bonuses for those on the leaderboard (those people are probably the ones who can take the higher paid calls). All  you need is a decent computer/laptop and headphones. You're listening to recorded calls, not making any. They aren't live at all. 

Super simple sign up - you need a verified Paypal account to sign up. They will ask you to sign in with your Paypal email - but the pop up from Paypal tells you they ONLY share your email with Humanatics, nothing else. 

A verified paypal account is one that has a bank account attached to it (routing and account number). Again, the company will not see any of your information at all, ever. 

Payments can be requested once you reach $10. Pay goes out once a week between Monday and Tuesday. You can only request one payment per pay week - so for good measure, request it on a Sunday.

I've only taken a handful of calls today (they're running low right now) and I'm over $1. 

So sure, its "chump change", but I look forward to working my way up to making $50 a day. For simply selecting the correct option, its easy money. 

If you want to sign up, go to the website and sign up. It is FREE to sign up and work. Please use my email ( as the person who referred you! Once you make $30, I'll get a bonus :)

Review: Select Specs

*I was sent a pair of glasses for free in exchange for my honest opinion. All expressed opinions are my own*

If you've followed me for a while then you know I love buying glasses. Just as much as I love buying shoes or makeup probably. It never hurts to buy another pair, and it's always nice to match your glasses to your outfit ;)

Select Specs has recently sent me a pair of fun glasses, and I'm totally going to go buy another pair and get them made as sunglasses because they are just awesome. They are plastic, so they're really durable. I've had them a while now and I've sat on them once or twice (oops!) and my toddler has even grabbed hold of them. They're not loose and they haven't broken at all.

These are #8122 Savannah in green

My glasses originally got lost in the mail. Shipping from overseas sometimes is tricky like that. But they were quick to help me out and send me another pair - hassle free! 

Select Specs has a wide variety of glasses, so something the whole family can enjoy. No matter what style of frame you're looking for, you'll find it here. Aviator, oval, cat-eye, rectangle and other popular frame styles. They offer brands you'll recognize, such as Gucci, Tom Ford, Mont Blanc, Dior, Jimmy Choo, Nike and more.  You'll also find a large collection of very affordable frames/glasses.

They have some really awesome styles right now, and they add new styles often, so you can come back often and find something you love.

Can You Spot a Phishing Email Scam?

These days email scams are all over the place. For many, it can be hard to spot which one is a scam or which are legit. Well, the folks over at Intel Security has made a 10 question quiz to see if you can really spot a phishing scam.

Click this link to check out this quiz and see how well you stack up.
Phishing Quiz

I took it and got 9/10 right. The last one caught me off guard! But it's from a bank that I've never heard of, and if I found it in my email, I'd ignore it anyways. According to the map below, Americans apparently can't tell a scam from a real email  -  not good for us, but great for those trying to scam you or put harmful software on your computer!

So, what'd you get? Take the test and come back and let me know!

IMUCA Ultra Slim iPhone 6 Case

Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above in exchange for review from Giveaway Service website. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. Reference ID: pm2927189f575caa14640d46a82f7c30d3

By now you should be able to tell how much I love my phone cases. I'm always finding new ones and forever trying to find the next favorite. Well, I've found it. Just last month I told you about a thin clear one, now I've found its match! 

The Ultra Slim iPhone 6 case from IMUCA is amazing. I received the black one (though I'm going to go back and order it in pink, too). It's slim as it says in the name, and there is easy access to all the buttons, charging port and headphone jack.

This case comes with other features such as the stylus that can be plugged into the headphone jack for easy travelling, a cleaning cloth and a screen protector. The packaging alone is more than anything I expected. Typically these cases come in a simple plastic pouch, the casing is pretty amazing (I'll be honest, I've not quite thrown it out.... it's sitting in a drawer for whenever I decide to change the case LOL). 

I've had this case on for about 3 or 4 weeks and I've got no complaints. It hasn't loosened with wear, I've taken it off a few times and the case hasn't stretched at all.  Unlike other cases made from TPU, this case did not have a funky plastic smell when I opened it. 

Here are a few pics I took of the case. 

 You can check out the case and get one for yourself by clicking the image below from Amazon. They have black, pink, blue, red, green and clear.

BakeItFun Silicone Baking Mat

I had a silicone baking mat before it was "cool" to have one. I received it with my kit at culinary school, and I loved using it. I honestly have NO idea what happened to it over the past decade (almost). It was the most amazing thing to have on a cookie sheet. Nothing stuck to it! I used it while making sugar bowls with hot sugar, used it while making chocolate cigarettes (something we did in baking class just for fun) and used it to bake on obviously.
