A Website that Literally Shrinks Your Bills!

Every now and then comes along a little gem of technology that makes life just a little bit easier. Paying bills ranks at the top of our "No Fun" list... luckily we have found a website that makes the monthly chore a little less painful on your pockets!

Billshrink is a FREE website service that will literally analyzes your current bills and tells you how to save money!

According to the website, 8 out of 10 people overpay for cell phone service and minutes they don't use. Want to find out if you're paying too much? Billshrink will measure your usage, your calls, and find a more suitable plan... even amongst your current provider!

Other ways the website can save you money include finding the cheapest gas near your house on your commute, telling you the best television service deal for your area, and finding you credit cards that actually suit your needs and spending habits.

We put the website to the test to analyze my own cell phone bill. Currently, I pay $130 a month for unlimited voice, text and data with Verizon Wireless. After logging in through my Verizon Account, Billshrink checked out my minute usage, who I call most, etc and gave me some great data:

By changing my plan to 900 anytime minutes plus one add on, Billshrink informed me that I would be able to save $648 over a two year period! That's for doing absolutely nothing... except changing my plan with Verizon:

Billshrink is certainly something to call home about!

Wanna Stand Out? Add Statement Pieces to Your Outfit

A statement piece can totally revamp a look. GRACESHIP bags are definitley one of those pieces, and here's a peek at a few other bold accessories to try out!

Hats

Floppy hats aren't just for a day at the beach anymore. Throw one of these on with a simple jumpsuit or jeans and a tank and you'll be making a statement without even saying a word.

   Fedoras are great for adding a little fun and style to another simple look. Casual meets funky.

Jewelry

Bib necklaces come in many different forms; fabric, jewels, sequins, metal. Whatever style you choose, you are sure to wow your friends. Bib necklaces are perfect for high collar shirts adding a little pizazz to a simple neckline.

Throwing a ton of bracelets may take you back to memories of childhood but we are loving multiple bracelets, the more the merrier! Putting similar hued bangles even matching your watch, with a simple outfit is sophisticated and fun all at the same time. Bangles are the new arm candy.

Scarves

Scarves are so versatile and add a certain wow factor to any outfit. Check out a few ways to wear them!

The traditional way to wear a scarf, around your neck, is a fool proof way to add a statement piece to your outfit.

Tying a scarf on your head is a little more daring than putting it around your neck, but it's a very chic and quick way to add some uniqueness to a simple outfit.

GRACESHIPS chic, traditional bag London has been completely transformed by simply tying a scarf around the handle. Add a new scarf to match your mood, and your GRACESHIP bag!

Kiss Tired Eyes Goodbye

Here at GRACESHIP we love simplicity. Who wants or has the time to spend hours trying to cover up dark circles? No one! It's 3 AM and you're finishing up that business report, or just getting in from a girls night out; we've all been there. Waking up the next morning is a task in itself, getting ready shouldn't have to be. Here are a few go to products for covering up tired, dark eyes and making you look as fresh as you did the night before.

Benfit's Erase Paste is a lifesaver. The creamy blendable formula comes in three different shades to perfectly conceal and camouflage dark circles. The melon undertones cancel out dark circles, giving you the perfect bright eyes.

Bobbi Brown's newly reformulated Creamy Concealer is foolproof. The yellow based concealer instantly camouflages dark circles. The new formula gives you the perfect amount of coverage with one swipe to last you all day. This concealer is also infused with skin conditioners designed to protect the delicate skin under your eye.

Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage isn't a secret anymore! The two shade system is perfect for camouflaging dark circles and minor imperfections on the skin. One shade matches your skin's depth of color, and the other matches the undertone. Every woman can custom blend her shade, making for a flawless face without dark circles.

Buh bye dark circles; hello bright eyes!
