Free Cash On Cyber Monday??? Yasss

Today is Cyber Monday, so I’ve decided to give everyone a gift of $10 FREE dollars. Yes, you heard that right. All you have to do is join Ebates by clicking this link to receive a $10 cash bonus. And you are probably thinking wow this is a scam just as I did before I joined. But IT IS NOT! I already made over $80 on my Christmas purchases by shopping on my favorite sites such as Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Tarte Cosmetics, Macy’s, Urban Outfitters and more due to cash-back opportunities. Plus, Ebates allows in-store cash back rates as well. To shop, simply click on a link to the store through Ebates website. This is then counted as a shopping trip. Once your order is processed, your shopping trip gains a percentage of cash back on your purchase. Comment below on what you are purchasing on Cyber Monday! xo, Nicole Advertisements

Foodie Faves: Chic At Catch

Hey loves! I would like to welcome Alexandria Brooks, a new contributor to The City & Thrift.  She is currently a Journalism undergrad living in New Jersey, and was featured as a contestant on Food Network’s Chopped a couple years ago (so cool right?).  Here’s Alexandria review of Catch, located in the Meatpacking District of NYC.  One of my favorite things about NYC is the food! The city is full of chefs ready to bring something new and exciting to the restaurant scene. Catch serves a variety of different seafood dishes from sushi to lobster mac and cheese. I recently went there for lunch with my mom for the first time. Upon entering the restaurant, we were led down a dark hallway to a backdrop of subtle music with lit candles providing a hint of light. We encountered an elevator that takes you to either the indoor restaurant on the second floor, which is under renovation or the rooftop on the fourth floor, our only option. The dark, mysterious vibe of the hallway and the …
