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,

Lost Dreams

It's 2011, times are tough and everyone is out here grinding to get to the top... So many have lost their jobs due to the recession and have to take jobs doing whatever comes their way just to have food on the table and a roof over their head. Not many really want to flip burgers or work the local department store register but if you want to survive we do what we have to do. It's how the country works... if there was noone flipping burgers, where would we get our food? What does this have to do with dreams? well a lot.... As a child one of the questions we are asked most often is what do you want to be when you grow up? Some ponder this and reply with whatever their mommy or daddy does, others reply doctor or fireman, some just don't know. We are told we can do anything! We can concure the world if we work hard, pay attention and try.. then real world hits... you gradute school and have more bills than zeros on your check, you get pregnant, or hurt yourself and lose a s

Rebirth

Time for me to put up one of the most honest and realest blogs you have ever seen from me. Since my break up at the end of 2011 I really haven't discussed it. I closed the door, shoved it under the rug and just kept my fingers crossed that every time I went out no one would ask me where 'he' was. I am sitting here looking at the last year. The things that have changed and decided it was time to write this... In that relationship we had it all planned out: goals, dreams, cars, kids, marriage and more. I thought I had met the man that I was going to spend the rest of my life with and I started living just that way. As though this was my husband and he was going to be at my side through it all, no matter what... WRONG. Life isn't that easy.. I should have known that but my happiness and desire for a real committed relationship clouded my decisions at the time. I won't discuss the details of  the break up or intimate details of the relationship but I will say it w

Our Mail System

I know there are millions of hard working postal workers making sure people get their letters, bills, parcels and more each day. They venture out into the cold, heat, rain, snow and more to do a job and I appreciate it. That being said isn't it time for a change? It's 2011 and we are still depending on a service that quite honestly is slow, undependable and usually carries more junk to out door than needed materials. We have no way to track most mail which means no way to verify it was sent, it was received or if it was taken somewhere along the way. If you can't tell already I'm waiting on mail, not just any mail either... I'm waiting on money. A check I usually receive every other Friday has not came, and its now the following Tuesday. Of course this check was sent VIA our lovely unites states postal service so where is it now? Noone knows.... I've been told as of today I have to allow 14 days before they will stop payment and send a new one. blah...
