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,

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…

Gluten & Allergen Free Wellness Event

My whole life changed (for maybe the billionth time) on November 3, 2017.

I had watched my son graduate from his Army AIT training the day before and traveled back from SC only to wake up with my entire face so swollen it looked as though I could burst at any moment.. the pain was real. I had done some blood work at the docs a few weeks earlier and we had not gotten the results so my husband drove me straight to the doc that day to demand some answers. I was told a few tests needed to be redone but the one thing she knew for sure is no more gluten... I blogged about it here. Before you ask, no I have not found out if it's Celiac, Lupus or anything else, even though the doctor seemed concerned about Celiac. Insurance issues. Yay life...
The last year has been a huge journey. Figuring out that EVERY little thing matters. Cross-contamination is real (if you don't change your gloves I will have a reaction), almost everything has gluten in it from shampoo to sausage and you often f…

Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Coverage #VoxBox

*This is a sponsored blog from Garnier Nutrisse and Influenster as I received this product to test for free

So recently I was selected to receive a new #VoxBox from Influenster of a beautiful light brown (#630 Toffee Nut) hair dye from Garnier Nutrisse. I have used this brand a few times in the past so I really had no worries with trying out this new one. I set up my phone and did my first "unboxing" video which was kinda fun and something I think I may do more of.



Inside were:



After mixing them as instructed I kept the dye on for the recommended time of 30 minutes in going from a dark blonde color to this light brown. I must admit I was a little worried the color would properly cover my head as I was applying; the bottle felt so light but I ended up with just a little more than enough and I still applied that to be sure. My hair as you can see is just at my neck length so I imagine if it was longer than shoulder length you'd be better off grabbing two boxes to be sure. …
