Bubblews Is A Scam--Super Pissed Off!

For all those out there who still think Bubblews is okay; beware. I was one of you up until just recently in the last month or so.

Let's start with the fact that they have THE World's WORST customer service. They don't answer anybody and they don't give a crap whether or not you get paid. They tell you that they're a FREE site and they're doing YOU a favor. Are you serious? So is every other revenue sharing site. You're not doing us a favor; you're not handing out money to us. You're reaping the rewards of what WE do. WE are doing YOU a favor by actually using your site. So don't give me that bull when people are asking questions about where their redemptions are.

I redeemed three times. Then, I made a recipe post (like almost every other person on here has done). I changed the wording on all of the recipe and even linked back to the original, NEVER taking credit for it. I had no idea anything was wrong; I redeemed and my redemption never came. I contacted Bubblews, no response. I wrote a post about being annoyed and finally they responded. Then, Bubblewssupport went on to ask me if the blog that I had linked to for the recipe was mine; I said no. I hadn't copied the recipe; I had referenced it just as you would a research paper by giving credit where it's due. After that, I never heard a single thing. EVER. AGAIN.

I posted once every so often on their account trying to figure out what the status was as to my account and my now TWO redemptions that had not been paid out to me. They had this stupid post on their account saying how people needed to stop "spamming" the profile. Well, excuse us for wanting the money that we deserve. Maybe if you guys actually responded to anything we wouldn't have to "spam" or "post" on your wall to begin with.

Apparently posting once every two weeks is considered spam? Cool. Bubblews you're just SOOO awesome in my eyes now.

I went to login to my old account on here, and it wouldn't login. It wouldn't show up that I existed. Looks like they deleted my account. And for no reason.

So, I'm just trying to warn everyone that I was in the same exact position as many of you are now; money was coming in and everything was fine. Until Bubblews screwed up. Once again, beware. It may seem great right now, but sooner or later they're going to rip you off. They stil owe me $50. Guess as soon as somebody is a liability here they delete their accounts.

If Bubblews doesn't have the money to do this little "experiment" of trying to be better than all the other revenue sharing sites, they need to come back to reality and stop lying to everyone saying they're doing fine.

Right now I have two words for Bubblews; it's not a very nice combination of words so I'll refrain from posting it on here, but I think you know what they are.

Thanks a lot Bubblews for lying to me! And stealing my time and money you still owe me! I will be sure to tell every person I know now that you are the worst website ever. I'll also start telling people that they need to start actually putting work into online writing; it's not "easy" like this site. This site will eventually go down the tubes because making money with adsense takes more time and patience. This is just a "quickie" to get money fast that will not be able to sustain itself for very long.. unless they keep scamming people of course.

I'm taking my writing elsewhere Bubblews.

An Old Public Service Announcement I Made

I just stumbled upon an old Public Service Announcement (PSA) I had made a long time ago and placed on Youtube. It's below....

Let me know what you guys think of it! It's pretty old now I'd say, but there are still people who view it.

Cheap New Years Party Dresses

It's that special time of year again.. after the holidays (and not to mention the enormous amoungs of food you ate and need to exercise off) and everybody is getting ready for a New Year's Even party! Perhaps you're wondering what you should wear. I'll fill you in on a few things I'd recommend getting...

It's not New Year's Eve without the perfect sparkly or plain old black dress. Here's a few to give you some ideas:

1. Metallic Bodycon Bandage Dress from Forever21 $32.80
Can you say SEXY? I know I can! There is nothing plain or simple about a one-shouldered dress, ever. It automatically gives you that extra edge above anybody else at the same party. Top it off with the right colored clutch (not a black one as shown in the picture) and you're good to go.

2.Sequined Sweetheart Mesh Dress Forever 21 $27.80
Once again, I have a pick from Forever21 because they have some of the cutest dresses for a decent price. Let's be honest, most of us don't have the budget to spend more than $50 on a New Year's Eve Party dress, even though we'd love to. This dress, black and sparkly again, screams "Take me out and party in me!" Seriously though. That mesh above the chest and over the shoulders: PERFECTION. Spice this up with some seriously sexy heels and you're good to go. Maybe even throw in some cute earrings.

3. Gold Metallic (GLMT) Sequin Dress With Cut Outs Venus $29
Ooo La La. Tell me there's anything better than a gold sequin dress. I can assure you that nothing is quite so sexy. This might be one of the only times a year that you can get away with wearing gold and sequins, so I say GO FOR IT. Don't hold back. I'm not a fan of the hoop earrings in this picture, but I'd definitely say some sort of gold earrings are also required if wearing this dress. Not only that, but I personally would pair it with some gorgeous black pumps. Curly hair? Yes please!

 An added bonus.. 

Here are a few sites that have some cute wedges/pumps to wear as well...


Let me know if you need any help navigating around those websites for the shoes. There are a lot of cute and cheap options for sparkly pumps and regular colored as well. And nothing says New Years Eve like a good set of heels.

Hope you enjoyed this post, and look forward to more in the future.

Colorado Colorado Colorado!

Oh beautiful Colorado.

My parents moved here this past summer, and I've been lucky enough to explore a lot of the area over various breaks from school.

One of the places we visited was Estes Park, or part of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Just wanted to drop in a few pictures of what we were able to see....

Pretty cool huh? That last picture is a picture of an elk by the way if you weren't sure!
(P.S. All of these are my pictures that I took with my own Nikon DSLR camera. I reserve the rights to these images. That means they are mine and you can't use them anywhere... )

I'd encourage you to visit Colorado and Estes Park if you can! Estes Park is also where one of the scenes in the movie "The Shining" was filmed at a local hotel. Pretty cool tidbit if you ask me.

I also found a pretty cool video about this spot on Youtube. Check it out...

Let me know if you enjoyed any of these pictures, and please feel free to share any of your own experiences with the beautiful state of Colorado.


Les Miserables the Movie -- My First Post Of Course

Perhaps it is only likely that my first post would be about Les Miserables. This new remake of the original Broadway musical is beyond incredible. I know this may in fact sound cliche, however, the film left me speechless. Everything about it was utterly amazing.

First, let us talk about the acting. This is, for me, the first and foremost topic to cover in reviewing any sort of film. And, to be dead honest, I'm not even sure where to begin!

I'll start with Anne Hathaway. Who knew that she had it in her? She went from being a teen princess way back in the day to her current role as Fantine. For a woman who is desperate to get money to take care of her young child, Cozette, and ending up as a prostitute, Hathaway did a marvelous job. Perhaps it is this movie's attention to detail; as a viewer, you miss absolutely nothing about the way the characters look, the objects and landscapes around them, etc. Her scene where she sings the infamous song "I Dreamed A Dream" was possibly one of the best in the movie. It was so touching; you almost were able to step into her shoes and feel the things she happened to be feeling. I cannot rave enough here.

Next, we'll move on to Hugh Jackman who plays Jean Valjean. Wow, just wow. From the very beginning where we find him serving out the very end of his prison sentence, he astounded me. He is able to play a selfish and "I-hate-the-world" type character at the very beginning, however, he changes into the "I-think-of-everybody-but-myself" type later on. When he is invited in by the priest at the beginning of the film and is eventually told that his soul has been spared, we see him wrestle with his emotions by himself. He wonders if he will be able to live a good life and show the priest that he was right; this was one of my all-time favorite scenes here! This wrestling match with the self was greatly acted and, once again, highly believable.

On another note, I'd love to mention the two funny characters Thénardier and Madame Thénardier. Many of you know Madame Thénardier as Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter, and here she once again plays a conniving, bad character quite well. Her and her husband were hilarious to watch as they make an appearance throughout the film.

Since I can't name every single actor, I'd love to make special mention of a few that were also incredible. Eddie Redmayne, who plays Marius, had quite the vocal chords. On top of that, he wasn't too bad of a looker either. We'll definitely be seeing more of him in the future. Samantha Barks, who plays Éponine, should also be mentioned here. Her voice is incredible! I look forward to seeing her as well in upcoming films or productions. Russell Crowe amazed me because I simply did not know that he could sing at all; he was very decent at his role as Javert. I also would love to mention the little kids in this movie; wonderful acting and they are incredibly adorable!

On another note, the singing was also astounding. Everyone in this movie was placed in it for a reason. Amanda Seyfried sure knows how to hit the high notes doesn't she? Samantha Barks has an incredible voice that I'd love to hear on an album at some point. Eddie Redmayne is someone that you can tell has some sort of a history in the music world... he has to!

Perhaps my the ultimate reason for me liking this movie so much was all of the emotion and story conveyed behind it. Every actor had a monologue that showed the way they felt inside, and they transferred that to the audience. There are also many themes of "opposites" in this movie, such as the Thénardiers and Valjean himself.

If you haven't before, or you didn't even know a book existed, I would HIGHLY recommend picking up the novel Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. If you are able to get through the entire book, I promise that it will change your life. Click below if you'd like to order it off of Amazon!

 On top of the book itself, I'd also highly recommend buying the soundtrack to this Les Miserables. Click here for that: Les Misérables: Highlights from the Motion Picture Soundtrack 2012.

This film was very powerful! I'd even go so far as to say it's been the best film that I've had the pleasure to see in a very long period of time. That is not an exaggeration. Go see it if you haven't already, or pick up the soundtrack or the book if you're into that sort of thing. Let me know what you thought about the movie by leaving a comment below!
