Being An Influenster

Back in February of this year (♥ the month of love ♥), I wrote a blog post titled "Today I am thankful for..." and it was all about Influenster. If you haven't had a chance to read it, I highly recommend it. (Shameless Plug Alert!) 

The bottom line is: I ♥ BEING AN INFLUENSTER! I love discovering amazing products to test out & sharing my thoughts about them with you! If you think that's pretty neat, imagine being able to try out those products absolutely FREE! Well, that's exactly what being an Influenster is all about. Products get shipped to you in a cute box called a "VoxBox". My husband thinks I'm a hoarder because I can't seem to throw out these adorable & colorful boxes, but I consider myself a "collector"! 
There are so many awesome products out there, sometimes it seems there's something new to discover every day, right? Well, when you're an Influenster, you get to unlock badges by answering simple, straight-forward, multiple-choice questions about the things you like in your profile. And then, when there's a VoxBox with products that fit your lifestyle available, you get chosen to receive them! After you try out the products and complete the challenges & activities, you have even more chances to win a Mega VoxBox filled with a variety of products and/or a specific brand prize!
But wait, there's more! The fun doesn't end there! You get to write product Reviews from your Influenster profile. And there's even a new Influenster App (Android version coming soon) which I can't wait to try out! You can just scan product bar codes directly from your phone, read reviews, and write them, too! There are also Twitter Parties we're all invited to where we can share our experiences with other Influenster members & the different brands we're testing out! And guess what? They have lots of prizes at those parties, too! What's not to love, right?!

Being a member of the Influenster community has been an amazing experience right from the day I signed up & received my very first VoxBox 2 years ago! I can't wait to continue this fun journey and I hope you join in, too! For more information visit www.influenster.com! And feel free to leave me any questions below!

I invite you to visit my YouTube channel to see all the wonderful VoxBoxes I've received & if you like what you see, feel free to Subscribe! (Yes, it's another "Shameless Plug")



Who Doesn't Like FREE?

I'm pretty sure everyone loves getting free products, right?! But sometimes it's hard to believe that there is such a thing as 100% Free because there's always a "catch". Well, today I'm here to share with you another great company called SampleSource that really sends you free samples in the mail! It's simple and straight forward because everything is 100% FREE!

This is actually the second box of free products I've received from them and I just thought I'd share it with you because...who doesn't like Free products?! I even posted an unboxing video on my YouTube Channel! These are the items I was able to choose:

Here's some additional information from their website:

REVIEW - Smiley360 - TAZO Chai Tea

I'm on a complimentary Smiley360 mission to try out the TAZO chai teas! This has been one of my favorite missions so far because I really love drinking tea. And since it's chai tea, it's extra special! I love chai flavored drinks and these TAZO flavors don't disappoint. 

The free flavor samples I received were Classic, Vanilla Caramel, and Chocolate. My favorite of the three was the Classic because it's just a perfect blend of spices and sweetness. The Vanilla Caramel was very lightly flavored and not too sweet. As you can see in my video, I don't really like chocolate "flavored" drinks except hot chocolate so I prefer the Classic and I highly recommend that one if you've never tried chai flavored tea before.

 As soon as the hot water covered the chai tea, the scent was released and I couldn't wait to taste it! After letting it steep for a few minutes, I poured a tiny bit of flavored liquid creamer inside and enjoyed my cup of TAZO chai! 
Definitely will be repurchasing the TAZO chai Classic tea to enjoy at home and share it with my friends and family! It's the perfect holiday drink: warm and tasty! By the way, I've also enjoyed it cold and it's just as tasty!

If you'd like to find out how you can join Smiley360 absolutely free check out their website! *All products were received complimentary for testing purposes and the opinions shared are my own.


Smiley360 Mission - Scotties Facial Tissues

Well, hello there!

I'm back with another exciting review of a complimentary product I received from Smiley360! First of all, I'll start by letting you know that Smiley360 is an online community of influential consumers who try products, content & other experiences for FREE & share their opinions with others. As a member, I receive offers from the biggest brands and share my experience with that brand, as well as with friends/family, neighbors, other consumers and YOU! Does that sound too good to be true? Well, trust me, it's true! And here's a great example:

I'm on a new mission to test out Scotties Tissues! Not only are they a great value because they are only $1.00 for a box of 70 2-ply tissues, but they come in the cutest boxes with lots of pretty designs. They are also doing something pretty amazing for the environment:

For every 1 tree they use, they are planting 3 more!

I think that is such a spectacular way to give back to our earth! The tissues are strong enough to dry your tears during the saddest scene of your favorite movie or even the toughest cold! They are also #KittenySoft so they won't hurt your nose.

More Exciting News: As part of their environmentally friendly products, they are having a Scotties Trees Rock contest for kids in 3rd - 8th grade! I can't wait to get my son involved in this fun contest! If you'd like to find out how your child can enter be sure to visit: www.scottiestreesrock.com

And before I go, I'd like to invite you to watch my video to see what design I received and learn more about Scotties! #ScottiesTreesRock
