Well, I got lots of goodies in the mail today, but not the one thing that I have been waiting for for 3 weeks now, lol. Maybe that will come sometime before 2013. :-O

The Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream is from BzzAgent – if you haven’t signed up with them yet, do it right now! They send you some really super nice full sized products to review and talk about, and generally create “buzz” about. I have received some free Green Mountain Wellness K Cups, Afrin nasal spray, Lean Cuisine, and more from them, all in the last month or 2. I am trying the hand cream right now, it smells really good, and it made my hands feel tons better after just 1 use. It’s so cold here right now, my hands have been chapped and the skin was kind of flaky. Gross. Now they are soft and smell awesome. 😀

The Olay CC Cream is a Klout Perk – Klout is a site that measures your social media influence and rewards you for being influential. I have received TONS of super nice stuff from them.

The Schiff digestive advantage is from a Dr. Oz giveaway, watch his website for future giveaways.

The other stuff, Chocolate Cream of Wheat, GoodNites bed mat, Tom’s of Maine deodorant, Caress body wash – those are all things that I signed up for, from various giveaways. Check out the Facebook pages of your favorite companies, many of them do samples and giveaways every day!

Look at all those goodies!

Look at all those goodies!

I got my very first VoxBox from – it is the Holiday 2012 VoxBox. It is a box of goodies that they sent me to try out and talk about.

Here’s what’s inside:

  • Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal – I’m not a big oatmeal fan. Honestly I don’t remember ever HAVING oatmeal. This stuff looks delicious though. I can smell the fruit inside through the package! It contains big chunks of real fruit – strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries…um, yes please! Those are all things that I like. I will definitely have to give it a try!
  • NYC New York Color Lipshine – in their Nude York City shade…this is right up my alley because I don’t wear makeup, but I do love me some lip gloss, so this makeup that will make me look like I am not wearing any makeup, and keep my lips moist too!
  • Kiss Nail Dress – Okay, these are really pretty. I got the black ones with the gold scroll-ish designs and red and clear/white jewels on them. They just came along at a really bad time in the life of my nails – I will have to wait a while before I can try them. My nails look awful right now, they are all different lengths because I keep breaking them. 😦
  • EBOOST Natural Energy drink powder in Pink Lemonade flavor – Awesome! This will definitely come in handy! Everything about this sounds good – energy – good, pink lemonade – good, natural – good, fizzy – good! I think it will be yummy, and it says it will “boost my mood, focus, and immunity”. Can’t wait to try this!
  • Goody QuickStyle Paddle Brush – This looks very interesting. It’s a big paddle brush that has absorbent microfiber bristles alongside the regular bristles. Supposedly it will remove up to 30% of water from your hair, so it helps to cut down on blow drying time. This is the one thing that I have tried from this box so far, so my first review is coming up soon. 😀
  • The last item in the box is a coupon for a $25 discount on my first pair of shoes from SoleSociety – and their shoes start at $49.95, so that is an awesome half off discount! Check them out at and if you find something that you love, use the code Influenster25 to get $25 off your first purchase!

I highly recommend joining the online community, it’s a lot of fun.

Thank you, Influenster, for the opportunity to try these new products and share my opinion!

So I got this blog…

I’m not sure what to do with it yet. I love talking about all of the freebies and interesting things that I get in the mail, and we all love getting nice things at a great price. Hopefully someone out there is interested in what I have to share.

Lately I have been receiving a LOT of free products in the mail. I spend hours and hours every day, scouring the internet to find these free items, and searching for awesome deals. And lately a couple of those things that I have received have come with the stipulation that I share my opinion about them on my blog. So I thought dang, I’d better get myself a blog! So here we are. I want to make it clear that I am NOT in any way being influenced or compensated by any of these companies to say positive things about their products. I will be 100% honest, 100% of the time. If I absolutely adore something and want to gush about it, I will do so. If I think something is a piece of junk and a waste of time/money, I will say so.

I will do more than reviews here – I will also post links to free items, both samples and full size, whatever great deals I happen to find, and any sort of instant win games and sweepstakes that I think are legit.

I welcome comments and hearing what you have to say about these products as well. I also encourage you to promote your own blogs or whatever else you want to share, just please no spam! I will not tolerate spam, so please don’t annoy me and everyone else with that mess. And remember to keep it relatively clean! This is a public blog, and while I encourage opinions and debate, remember that profanity and vulgarity are the linguistic crutches of inarticulate twits. 🙂

Have fun, and Happy Holidays!
