I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purpose.

Besides getting books to review occasionally I received other free samples so that I can share my option on them too. I recently I received a #HarvestVoxBox of samples and coupons from Influenster.

Inside the box:

  • Tree Hut Shea Body Butter – Product I already use and love!
  • Gain Botanicals – We normally use unscented laundry soap but these were not bad.
  • Vera Wang Embrace – I don’t wear a lot of perfume these days, but I did enjoy the soft and subtle scent of Embrace.
  • Coupon for free Country Crock – Again we already enjoy this product, so “Score!” on the freebie.
  • Two Coupons for Middles – Which I cannot find at any of our grocery stores and therefore can’t redeem.
  • Eva NYC – I don’t like such heavily scented things in my hair, but it did untangle and make my hair soft like it promised.

Thanks for the goodies Influenster! Looking forward to reviewing more Vox Boxes in the future.

Follow Friday: Book Bloggers I Enjoy (And Think You Will Too)

This is not the same as the feature and follow Friday meme, I don’t think I’m ready for another weekly meme on my blog. This is the old fashioned Follow Friday, where I say, “Hey I like these blogs and think you will too!” These are four bloggers who I have bookmarked and check every week. I hope you enjoy the list.

Always Me

Lauren at Always Me is a fellow participant in Top Ten Tues which is how I discovered her blog. This is what she says about herself, “My name is Lauren and I’m a 27 year old Ohioan.  If it isn’t already obvious, I am completely addicted to reading and I particularly enjoy fantasy, sci-fi, horror, and YA.  I’m a librarian by day and I mix paint by night.”

Mom’s Radius

I found Mom’s Radius through the monthly pick-ups link up at The Deliberate Reader. This is what she say’s about herself, “My name is Kate Unger. I am a reader, an introvert, a lover of deep friendships, a wife, and a mother of one who works full time.”

Reading Is My Super Power

Carrie is the kind of blogger I aspire to be. She posts often (like several times a day) and has lots of great content on her blog. This is what she says about herself, “I live in Kentucky with my hubby of 15 years and our quirky dog Zuzu (who also happens to be my unofficial official blog mascot).  I’m the long-distance cool aunt to NINE nieces and nephews, and I teach English as a Second/Other Language to International Adults.”

Book Haven

Another blog I found through Top Ten Tues. His blog is very visual with lots and lots of beautiful book covers. This is what he says about himself, “My name is Greg and this is where I talk about books, films and anything else that comes to mind. I’ve always been an avid reader and I enjoy promoting authors and discussing my favorite books with others.”
