Freebies In The Mail!!

So, I've been signing up to receive several different free samples in the mail! I finally got a few of those this week.

I also redeemed a code for a free Julep polish from an older mystery box, won a giveaway prize, AND someone sent me a couple minis that they were never going to use!

Basically, this week's mail has been fun. Especially my little Canadian box :D Who DOESN'T want 4 free indies (1 full size, 3 minis)?

Starting with the mail freebies:

First we have a Viva La Juicy Noir towelette type sample. It smelled great, and this type of sample gives you the chance to experience the scent on  your skin. It also gives you the chance to smell the dry down.

 Next, I received a Schick Hydro Silk razor through a text message. All I had to do was send a text message, click a link that I got in a reply, and fill out the form. Cards with more information and coupons came with the razor. The coupons were for money off shaving cream (the kind I use, SCORE!) and a refill for the razor.

Those were the non nail mail freebies this week! Now for the Julep freebie!
This lovely beauty is Julep Evie! It took long enough to get here. LOL. However, I had issues with my code and had to contact CS. I'm probably actually very lucky to have gotten it at all.

Next is my giveaway win! I won a prize from The Lazy Lacquerista (aka Michelle in Canada). It was from the Carpe Noctem Cosmetics giveaway. I won one full sized indie, and 3 mini indies.

The first polish I won was from Tara's Talons as well as the second one.

Michelle's Polish

Lacquerista Polish

After that was a Pretty & Polished mini
This one is Lollipops and Gumdrops

Finally, the full size indie was from Ruby White Tips
This one is KickAss Topcoat.

That was my awesome giveaway prize. It is always fun to win indies that you may not try otherwise!

I posted my ISO list on Facebook, hoping to swap for some things. I got a message from someone offering to send me a mini of a polish she got in a swap and had not used. SOLD. I got the package today, and she included another mini as well.

First was a Dollish Polish Mini.
Crystal Empire :D

Then, I got a no name Color Club mini
Really pretty red!

That is all my freebie mail since I last posted. I am working on a samples post, and a nail mail post. I want to try more samples, and get more paid for nail mail first :)

That's all for now!

See ya next time!

Reviewing Some Samples and My Goals for the Blog :)

Hi everyone! I used 3 samples this week and I wanted to review them for you!

First is this Too Faced Glamour Gloss. I would have taken a picture of it on my lips, but it smelled AWFUL. It was Play Doh. The brush, color and consistency were all good, but I could NOT get over the smell. This sample will be going in the trash!

 Second was a product I have technically tried before, but got a sample of at Sephora. Philosophy Purity Made Simple. This product is very good for people like me. I'm lazy when it comes to washing my face. I don't want to have to use 3 different products in the morning (soap, liquid that makes my face warm, and lotion). It lathers well, and probably had 2-3 uses in the packet.

Lastly was a sample of Julep's Rock Star Hand Creme. I had heard about the floral scent before I tried it. It was not a totally intolerable, strong floral scent. It was subtle, and went away as it stayed on my skin longer. It did make my hands feel moisturized. It did take some time to soak in, but that is probably because I used too much.

So, those are my sample reviews! Now for the other part of this post! I am going to try my hardest to post every single week. The only way to become a better writer is to write. I will also try my hardest to post on the Facebook page at least once a day. Consistency is my first step on the path of becoming a better blogger :)

Until Next Time,

My Facebook Page!

So, I brought my Facebook page back from the dead.

It's so much easier to post a quick update when I am in school and wanting to rip my hair out.

Plus, if I want to get this blog anywhere, I'm pretty much forced to have one. And gain better fine motor skills. And post on here...

But that's all a different post (or maybe the beginnings of a rant?) My Facebook page is

Notice how there is not a 1 in the URL. That's because there was no blog Facebook from 2011 sitting dormant. LOL

So, if you haven't already, please check it out. You'll get to hear about nail mail, and randomness.

'Til Next Time I Decide To Post,
