Glade Expressions Bzz Agent Campaign!

DISCLAIMER: I received 2 coupons to get both products in the campaign for free from Bzz Agent.

One day, I checked my email to find this:

I was getting to test an oil diffuser and room spray! 

So once I got my coupons in the mail, my family and I headed to the grocery store. While the store carried both products, one was priced over the value of my coupon. I only got the spray that night. This is my only gripe with the campaign. 

A few nights later, I picked up the diffuser at Wal Mart. It was priced LOWER than the value of the coupon!! 

The spray worked really well, and may run out soon since my whole family loves it!

I'm a total weakling, so snapping the sheet into the oil container was challenging when it came to the diffuser.

What's The Best Kind of Nail Mail??

 THE FREE KIND!  I got a VERY generous gift from a woman we can describe as my polish fairy godmother. :) I also won a prize from Creative Nail Fun.

First, the prize from Creative Nail Fun!

The whole package (minus candy)

Revlon Girly

Glimmer by Erica Snow Day

Burt's Bees Cuticle Balm and Lip Balm

The gift from my polish fairy godmother is AMAZING.

Color Clubs Angel Kiss and Blue Heaven, Kelara Blue Steel, Julep Joan and Mavala Sparkling Violet

Update Post Since I Haven't Blogged in a Week

College... the classic way to ruin blogging. Seriously. I've been up to my ears in homework and keeping my perfect attendance record. Yes, that means I have never skipped a class. Impressive right? :)

I've won some polish, which is fantastic. I'll blog it all once I take pictures. (Ditto the second sentence for all!)

I've also ordered some indies, one a beloved favorite and 2 others new to me (so far...).

I've also swapped quite a few polishes, and received my end for most of the swaps. 

I also ordered 2 from Amazon that the USPS is failing to track.

So, that is my update :)
