Mail Call! October 1st, 2010

This is what my bed looked like when I got home from 2 weeks at school.
SO exciting!

 This is what came in the Rica Vida box: Bisquick pancake mix, a Nature Valley Granola Bar, a single serving of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, and a coupon for yogurt.

I got a book called Perfection from the SheSpeaks Book Club to review.
 This is a little notepad that I actually got to design online!
Here is a sample of Nivea lotion and a coupon. 

This was a package from Organic Valley.  It came with a large newsletter type booklet with coupons inside. Also, 2 kids coloring books, a letter from the company, and a coupon book.

This was a really cool sample package from VocalPoint. They always have the neatest packaging! It opened to have a sample of Downy pop up, and a bunch of coupons tucked into the bottom for me and friends.

Not pictured above are the 2 magazines that I have free subscriptions for, as well as some Birthday coupons from DSW for $5 off an a free drink from Starbucks.

Overall, I'd say it was some awesome mail! I love freebies!

Free Book, Gum, Shampoo, Magazine and more!

I had a great past few days of mail!

Last week, I got a book called The King's Mistress by Emma Campion. It't the unedited proof, advanced readers copy. I won it from the "Read It Forward!" website, I won one last month too.

I also got my BzzKit for the Orbit Gum campaign. It came with 5 packs of gum, all different flavors. Also, couponsfor B1G1 free, and the BzzGuide.

I got an issue of Town & Country magazine too, from a free subscription.

Today, I got a Yankee Candle catalog, and the P&G brandsaver package.
That came with samples for Prilosec OTC and Head and Shoulders shampoo for men. Also, 6 coupons.

How have you been doing at the mailbox?

BzzKit is Here!

I got my BzzKit for the Sebastian Professional Volume Collection!

(I'm a BzzAgent on, and I receive free products to try out and give my opinion about.)

This is what I saw when I opened the box.

And this is everything that was in there!

Here's some better photos.

This is the Nioxin 3-Part System.
Total Value: $40.00

This is the Sebastian Professional Volupt System.

It came with VOLUPT Shampoo, Conditioner, and Gel Spray.
Valued at: $13.95, $14.95, and $19.95.

There were also a bunch of coupons for free Gel Spray when you purchase the shampoo and conditioner at the salon.
Total Value of the BzzKit: $88.85! (plus coupons)

So far I've used the Gel Spray twice and both times I really liked the effect it had, but you HAVE to wash your hair after using it. If you don't you hair will look really dirty even if it's not.

Tuesday's Mail Is Here!

Today I got 3 things in the mail, all 3 of which I had forgotten I was getting!

I got an issue of Women's Day magazine that I must have a free subscription for.

I also got a sample of Secret Clinical Deoderant, which I just found I already have a sample of this, so I'm not sure how I got a second, but I'm happy I did!

Also I got a sample of the Dr. Schools for Her insole, yes you read that right, they only send you ONE insole to try! How are you supposed to do that? Only have one comfortable shoe?

Oh well, It came with a $2 off coupon, and it feels really comfortable, so I might go but a pair.

Did you get anything good in the mail today?!

got2be Smooth Operator BzzKit is here!!!

I'm so excited I got my BzzKit for the got2be Smooth Operator Bzz Campaign!

I'm a BzzAgent and therefore am asked to try out products and give my opinion of them to BzzAgent, I am not paid to do this. 

 I am so glad I get to participate in this campaign because my hair need all the help it can get in the defrizzing department. This campaign also happened last year, but now they have reformulated the products to include a cashmere infusion.

The lustre lotion samples that came in the package "shapes, smoothes, controls fly-aways and gives you hair an amazing weightless lustre that's touchably soft."

Attached to each set of samples is a coupon for $1.00 off any full size got2be product,
it doesn't expire until 5/1/11!

Also included in my BzzKit was the letter telling me about the campaign,

The Official BzzGuide, shown in the next 2 pics.

And a coupon booklet.  

It has a coupon for me for a free product,

 and 4 coupons for $2.50 off a smoothing lustre lotion or a smoothing hairspray.

I am so excited to start using a sample and to share them with my friends!

Mail Call on May 24th

Today I only got one thing in the mail, but it's a good one!

It's a Vegetable Planting Guide from Burpee that I got for FREE!

(If you click here this where you can order it.)

I'm not really sure where I saw the link for this originally, but I know that there's a post about it on this awesome blog, Balancing Beauty and Bedlam!

I'm really excited about getting this today because I want to start growing my own food asap! I love to garden, and my family is pretty low on cash these days, so being able to pick some food from the garden and serve it that night is a great option!

This guide has information about:


  • What Makes A Great Garden?

  • Planning Your Vegetable Garden.

  • What In the World to Grow?

  • Building Your Garden.

  • Watering and Fertilizing.

  • Protecting the Garden.

  • Trellises, Stakes & Cages.

  • Tips & Tricks.

  • Tomatoes

  • Peppers (Hot & Sweet)

  • Summer & Winter Squash

  • Eggplant

  • Lettuce

  • Cucumbers

  • Beans

  • Basil & Cilantro

  • and then a "More To Try" page.
It really is a great guide and I can't wait to read it!

Today I walked to get the mail, and I got a little SURPRISE along the way, a turtle crossing the road!
He was so cute, I love turtles.
