Earn Cash Back While You Shop Anywhere!

Don’t throw your receipts away! If you’re going to shop or dine out, you might as well get some of your money back. And I’m all about saving money! I found an app that will pay you CASH just for shopping.

IBOTTA is an app that I use to make real money every time I shop for groceries, online purchases, and more! For example, when you shop at Target, make sure you add the items that qualify for cash back before going to the actual store. Once you purchase the items, Ibotta will credit you the money the item qualified for. For Thanksgiving, I got my turkey ($9.98) and some dinner items for FREE just by using this app. Once you earn $20 or more in cash back, you have an option to CASH OUT! It’s worth it!


FETCH is another app that I use. But instead of cash back, this app rewards you with gift cards. I shop on Amazon A LOT so I use this app to earn credit towards free gift cards. The cards range from $3 and up. To earn a $3 gift card, you just need 3,500 points. I was able to earn point fast because I go grocery shopping and shop online a lot! And when you do this in combo with the IBOTTA app, you’re saving more money!

Tap here to download the FETCH app!

In these trying times, do yourself a big favor and download these apps and earn your money back! Don’t forget to tell your friends about it too! Sharing is caring!

Q&A with SF Bay Area Hyphy Pop Artist @MissVickyMusic

Even in the most difficult times, along with many others that feel the same way, the music should never stop. During quarantine, many artists and DJs have shared their music through Instagram Live Feeds, posting footage from past shows/concerts, and Live Battles. My favorite battles on Instagram thus far was a tie between DJ Premier versus RZA and the Diaz Bros. Doo-Wop versus Tony Touch. It’s just amazing to see all these artists and DJs come together. Plus I’m a sucker for classics. However, I am also a sucker for the newschool and upcoming talent! I was very happy to do a virtual Q&A with solo artist Miss Vicky, during Shelter in Place due to this Covid-19 pandemic. Lets get to know Miss Vicky:

I first met Miss Vicky during one of her interviews with my friend Elijah, who is a host for The MUSIQ BOX Show, which is a dope Reggae Music radio station based out of San Francisco, CA. You gotta peep that station out. Out of my 15+ years working in the independent music industry, this was the first time that I’ve ever heard of “Hyphy Pop” – Hyphy music with a dose of Pop, which perfectly describes Miss Vicky’s energetic personality. Not to mention her stylish sense of fashion that screams, “Be different.”

hy·phy/ˈhīfē/Learn to pronouncenoun

a style of uptempo hip-hop music originating in northern California and associated with a frenetic style of dancing.

Solo Artist: Miss Vicky @gaugr_

Miss Vicky, San Francisco Bay Area Native, began her singing career when she was 7 years old singing at her church. She joined the choir at her Middle School and sang with them for 3 years. This was when Vicky realized that she wanted to pursue singing as a career. In the beginning of her music career, she has performed at various events such as, SXSW in Austin, Carnaval in San Francisco, Fog Fest in Pacifica, and different areas in San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

Miss Vicky has featured in songs with known Bay Area artists such as Rappin’ 4-Tay, Mistah F.A.B., Roach Gigz (rapper/hyphy hip hop artist), HBK Skipper (a member from the Heartbreak Gang, a hip hop record production collective based out of Richmond, CA).

CRYS: What is your singing style and how would you compare yourself to other artists?

MV:  I’d probably say urban pop with a mix of hyphy and rnb lol if Dua Lipa was from the Bay Area that would be me.

CRYS: What kind of music inspires you? And who inspires you?

MV: I would have to say house/pop music. It’s such a vibe and always motivates me to create a new song — My kids, myself, Dua Lipa, Kehlani, The Weeknd, Calvin Harris, Aluna George, Kelly Clarkson the list goes on lol but those would be my top list. 

CRYS: What challenges do you ever come across as an upcoming artist in the Bay Area? 

MV: The hardest challenge would have to be getting people to take the chance to listen to your music. Bay Area has always been known for Hip-hop and R&B and I just wanna show the world that we are universal! It’s all about the risk. 

CRYS: Are you managed by anyone?

MV: I’m managed by the CEO and COO of a music tech company called Gaugr. It’s an app that helps artist get real detailed feedback on their music from people in the music industry such as DJs, producers, A&Rs, managers, etc. I totally recommend the app download! 

Awesome!

CRYS: What else do you do on your spare time?

MV:  I’d probably be working a 9-5 job and getting my kinesiology degree. I’ve been dancing since I was 4 years old so being a physical therapist was in my agenda if I didn’t perform professionally. 

CRYS: (I love asking this question!) What is the best advice you’ve been given? 

MV:  “Stand out and Be Different. But most of all, don’t lose sight of who you are”. 

CRYS: If you would work with any other artist, who would it be? 

MV: Omg Dua Lipa and Kehlani . No doubt!

CRYS: Anything you want your fans to look out for in the future? Any upcoming shows? 

MV: Definitely look out for new music, music videos, merchandise, shows (once things get normal)

CRYS: I know what you mean, I can’t wait until this is over! COVID GO AWAY!

Miss Vicky has an EP coming out this year so be on the look out for that. Her hottest single “WITH ME” featuring Mistah F.A.B. and newest single “Another One”, is currently available for download on all digital platforms.

Announcing the upcoming launch of my designer shoe line —ADKreativ

On Friday, March 27, 2020, I will be launching my first Limited Edition “ADK” shoes from my upcoming All Day Kreative Shoe Collection.

The shoes that I will showcase in my upcoming collection were inspired by East and West coast flavors integrated into one.

ADK

The shoe is 100% handcrafted in Le Marche, Italy, also known as The Shoe Valley. The ADK’s features a classic high top look, pristine quality black leather, a gold sole and comfortable to wear, and eye catching. The insoles are carefully designed and made out of organic cotton and leather. It will also arrive in its own custom box. Shipping is free.

Excerpt from my bio on AliveShoes.com:

As a kid, I wanted to be a fashion designer. I used to take my crayons and draw sketches of different outfits on construction paper. Not sure why I didn’t pursue my dream at the time, I guess you can say, I grew up and lost sight of it. However, my inner love for fashion has never left me. Plus I’ve always been a sneaker junkie. I always tell people that I’ll be wearing sneakers until I’m 80 years old. Moving forward, I travel coast to coast. For me, New York breeds everything fashion. But so does California. My designs are a fusion of two styles into one — it’s like mixing peanut butter and jelly but I also love being experimental like adding cranberry juice to my ginger ale…” – All Day Kreative, Crystal Tolentino
