ResourcesHere are my favorite resources and recommendations for work and leisure!
Here is a list of some things I currently use, or previously used in order to provide great content for Quotation Re:Marks (the services or workshops I used to create the website, the website I use when buying books or movies online, etc.) along with other various tools and products that enable me to save time and money. There are some affiliate links below and these are all products I highly recommend. I won’t put anything on this page that I haven’t personally verified and/or used.

Everyday Life Products and Services
I recently discovered Younique makeup! While I’m not a big makeup wearer in general (just a few things everyday and then a few extra things when I’m going out) I like to try new eye shadows, liners, and cleansers every now and them. My friend Becca became a presenter for this company and she is killing it! It has been awesome to be a part of her life and see her grow with this neat company. And I have absolutely loved the products I’ve gotten from her, SO… I decided to hop on board! I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a new makeup brand, or wanting to try a few fun products OR if you’re looking to get involved with the company, Becca and I can show you the ropes! Check it out here.
I recently took the plunge and became an Amazon Prime member and oh my gosh! It has made my life so much easier! I was already shopping on Amazon a lot, but now I get faster, free shipping! Who doesn’t love that? I recently needed a last minute baby shower gift and bam! Prime helped me get my gifts within 2 days. It’s awesome and I absolutely love it.
Books – Shopping, Discounts, and Subscriptions
Barnes & Noble
I think we can all agree that walking around a book store is one of the best things in the world. I love it. But… there’s only one book store in my town and awesome as it is, sometimes I want to shop for books from my house and have them delivered to me. Or shop for digital books to download to my tablet. So then I use online services such as Barnes & Noble.
This is a new website for me, but I’m figuring out that there are a lot of great deals to be found on Books-A-Million! Especially if you’re looking for mass market paperbacks (like crime novels or James Patterson). If you’re looking for a new place to buy books, definitely try Books-A-Million.
Book of the Month
Ok, I’ve only just recently signed up with Book of the Month but so far it seems AWESOME! A new book sent to your house every month! Plus get an extra book or two for just a little extra. They send you an email at the first of the month to let you know your options – you pick one (or more!) and then they send it to you. If you don’t like any of your choices, you can skip that month, no biggie. I know a lot of people who ask me what to read next and this seems like an awesome way to have that question answered for you!
I recently started using Tailwind to schedule and create my pins for Pinterest and I love it! I’ve seen my followers grow and I’m finally seeing traffic that’s coming directly from Pinterest! Seriously, if you’re a blogger or someone trying to get more readers and interaction on Pinterest, check out Tailwind.
PicMonkey has been the most incredibly useful tool I have found for making ALL of the graphics that you see on this blog and on our social media. I use it to ass words to pictures, to edit pictures, to creat logos, and so much more! it’s wonderful and I can’t recommend it enough! I love it.
I chose SiteGroud for my web-hosting because I felt it was a user-friendly and affordable option for Quotation Re:Marks. I considered other options but ultimately chose Siteground because they offered free website transfer (which I needed because I was previously set up on a free WordPress blog) and a low monthly fee. I’ve been super pleased with their costumer service and how easy to it is to use and I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a web-hosting platform.
