Wondering about how I get all of these products? You can do it too!

I honestly can't believe how much my blog has grown since the day I started, a few years ago. I have received more free products than I could have ever imagined possible. Before, I was lucky if I received 1-3 samples every 6 months or so. This week alone, I have about 8 that are on their way...
My mail man stopped me the other day and asked, "Wow, you sure love online shopping, huh?" I just laughed and told him, "I do, but all those boxes you bring are things that companies actually send me for free. I don't pay a cent." He said, "That's pretty cool! I've never seen anyone get so many free packages every week!"

I have reviewed hundreds of products, now, to this day, on my blog, my social networks, and review sites. I am also very happy to be able to now be doing giveaways too. It's a lot of fun, but it's also a lot of work.

I don't just receive free products.

I have to set aside time every few days to try EVERY product out for a certain amount of time, take pictures of each of them, and write about how I honestly feel about them all. Some of the products are books that I have to read from beginning to end. I don't love every single product that I get, and I will always explain why I do or don't. However, even if I don't love something, other people might. Also, there might be things that I really love that other people might hate.

For those of you who are wondering how  I get all of these products:

Most of the products that I receive are things that I have applied to review.  And guess what?  I don't get approved to review everything that I do apply for. But, I just keep applying for more products that I would like to review. Sometimes, I get a request/email  to review a product that I didn't originally apply for or might not have ever heard of.
I get a free product(s) as long as I agree to post an HONEST review about what I think, good or bad. I have not received monetary compensation for any of my posts, but this is not to say that I never will. I may be willing to do so in the near future, but I still plan on sharing how I really feel about whatever I am given. Also, if I am getting paid to review a product, I will make sure to let my readers know.

Some of my favorite sites that I am a member of that send me products to review are:

If you are interested in reviewing products, then feel free to apply to any of those. Yes, they are all FREE to join. You might get products, you might get coupons, or you might get both.

Like I said earlier, I did not have a ton of products being sent to me right away. It took a few months but I currently receive several a month. Don't give up if you don't get anything right away. Be patient and make sure to update all of your profile info on each site. Some may require you to complete surveys. This will help ensure that you will have a chance to review products that are more suited for you from those sites. Some of them will let you just apply for items that you want to try.

You can also review products that you buy or already have around the house. Maybe there is something in your home that you absolutely love/hate using. Take some pics of the product in action, tell everyone what you use it for, link back to the company that you bought the product from, etc. Just some ideas...

Share your reviews on your twitter, your pinterest, your facebook, your youtube, and any other social networks.

When it comes to reviewing products, I have deadlines to meet too. Sometimes it does get slightly overwhelming. It is not something for everyone. I personally enjoy doing it and plan on continuing to do this for years to come.

thanks for reading,

Choose the right CBD for your daily routine

Can I ask you a question? Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system? If you thought “no” — You are not alone.

Appetite, sleep, immune response, mood and pain are all regulated by your ECS and can become imbalanced.

And to put your ECS system back in balance, it is time for you to discover the power of cannabinoids. Today, I hope to make this easier for you… My friends over at Elixinol have an amazing product called 300 mg Cinnamint Hemp Oil Drops Tincture   and  900 mg CBD capsules  that contains full-spectrum, 100% organic hemp cannabinoid extract.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new. Now, to get to the new, and past the terrible process of moving, here are my packing hacks. Label everything! Unless you’
