CrowdKit Box of Unilever Goodies

Love free stuff? Love Amazon gift cards? Love trying new things before others? Read on ❤

So you guys know recently I have been doing more sampling for various companies as well as brand ambassador programs. An amazing site that I recommend to everyone is Crowdtap. I came across it while googling for sample sites and I check it several times a day, except on the weekends when there isn't a lot of activity.

The great thing about this site is you get rewarded and get to participate in several ways. You fill out your general information. Age, sex, address, social media info. Then it acts as a sort of testing group for various brands. You may get shown images and asked to pick your favorite label or describe how an image makes you think. Sometimes they'll have more focused information and discussions, and on occasion you'll get invited to sample a product. It could be a new candy bar, cold medicine, makeup, and on occasion a brand will send you a box full of toiletry items! My bathroom has about 3 months worth of products right now.

When sampling they will have several tasks, that you know about in advance of accepting to sample, like writing an honest review of your product to taking a picture of the product in various settings. With social media as prevalent as it is I am sure these companies can use the images for the pages and it make for a cheap way to get real images of real people testing their products. For every task you complete you get awarded points starting at two points and going up from there; these points accumulate and you get sent a $ Amazon gift card for every 1,000 points you get.

Recently there were about 14 different missions from Unilever with multiple products in each box. Most were filled with Dove and Suave products but I occasionally got something from Ponds or Nexxus. Each box would have several different products like shampoo and conditioner, deodorants, body wash and makeup removing wipes. All of the products are full size, not some little sample bottle, and were new scents and versions of existing products they have on the market. The most recent one came with two Dove deodorants, Pond's Original Fresh MoistureClean™ Towelettes, Nexxus Therappe Ultimate Moisture Shampoo and Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisture Conditioner.



I enjoyed everything in this box but the Nexxus set was by far my favorite. From the sleek design of the bottle to the way it made my hair feel I absolutely loved it as soon as I tried it. My hair tends to get oily but my scalp gets dry and my hair that used to be straight as a board now has a slight wave to it. Not only was it great for my hair but it did really well for my daughters as well. They have very curly hair that can get dry and it gave their curls the perfect moisture they need. This is a set we plan to keep using!

I recommend you check out the Crowdtap site and maybe you'll get a chance to sample some neat products too. Watch my instagram for pics often of different samples I try as well as my tweets and @ me on your social pages when you get new products to try!

Much Love,

My Mother's Day Nightmare

May 13, 2018.. Mother's Day.

I worked an event.. I am always working.. helping coordinate a yearly brunch for my friend Chef X I was gone from about 8am until we got home about 6pm. I had been in communication with the two kids still at home throughout the day. They are 14 and 15.. generally mature and great at keeping in touch with me. Until 7pm that evening. Then 2 and a half hours went by where we had absolutely no idea where my daughter was. 14 years old and it was all silence. More than a few minutes is already scary, this was unlike ever before.

I am a mother to five, yes five, amazing kids. They are far from perfect, but I was far from a perfect parent, we managed. Being in the arts and entertainment industry there is sometimes a fine line between what is private and what I talk about. Most of the time though I know I am not alone. I know there are other moms, parents, loved ones who are experiencing some of the things I go through and talking about it helps. It helps me ge…

Turning 21, Disney and a Girls Trip We Won't Forget

I just got back from a five day vacation to Orlando... While there is so much about this trip we will keep to ourselves because it was all so special I did want to briefly talk about it as a whole.

About six months ago my best friend in Virginia hit me up. Her oldest daughter was turning 21 in July and she really wanted to do something special for her. My oldest had just turned 21, who also happens to be her Goddaughter, and our girls had known each other since birth as we were there for the birth of each other's firstborns. Her idea was to come down to Orlando, stay at a nice resort or hotel and have the four of us hang out a few days at the pool, maybe a bar or two and hit up an amusement park.

This sounded amazing and it was before the car accident my youngest was in, as well as a few other things to recently hit our family. When the accident happened she asked me if we should cancel. I asked her please not to, I knew by the time it came around I was really going to need a few …

Hello March...

Just thought I should jump on and write an update blog..



We moved into a new apartment in December and things have been a little hectic since. We absolutely LOVE the community and we know the new company is doing amazing things to improve the property but due to our apartment being an older one and on the bottom floor, there have been some issues.. I won't get into things in depth but we're looking for them to relocate our apartment as I write this so hopefully it all improves soon. That being said we have been crazy busy and dealing with a lot as a result, including having to stay in a hotel briefly.

The best news from the last few months- Kaliyah is done with physical therapy! She broke her neck in May 2018 and finished up with her PT in February 2019. She pushes herself so hard, goes to the gym on her own and has really shown some amazing growth, even starting her own YouTube channel! It's so funny to watch your kids do things and see little pieces of yourself in it. Pl…
