Free Stuff

Cosmo Vox Box

I have a confession to make: late last year I got a little obsessed with subscription boxes.  I ordered everything from beauty boxes to pet boxes because I love good deals and getting surprises in the mail.  Over a month or so, I amassed a ton of sample-sized products and spent more money than I should have.

Luckily, one of the boxes I received in the mail was full of normal-sized goodies and it was free thanks to Influenster!  Influenster gives people who love to try new things an opportunity to share their feedback and occasionally get VoxBoxes with products that fit their profile.   My first box from Influenster was the Cosmo VoxBox filled with a Venus Embrace razor and Olay blade refill, Pilot FriXion pens, a Ghiradelli Sea Salt Escape chocolate bar and Forever Red Perfume from Bath & Body Works.

I quickly tried each of the products in the box and genuinely loved each of them.  I also like that the site has reviews on a wide-range of products from books to beauty items.  Influenster knows me well because just as I was about to run out of dish soap, three bottles of Palmolive Fresh Infusion Bottles came in the mail today.  One of my New Year’s goals is to make more meals at home, so I’m grateful to have soap with a fresh scent to make cleaning my dishes more pleasurable.  The Ginger White Tea dish liquid got the gunk off of a dingy pan and left my kitchen smelling spa-like.

Palmolive Fresh Infusions

If you’re interested in becoming an Influenster, check out their website or send me an email for an invite.  I also received several $1.50 off coupons for Palmolive Fresh Infusions and will be happy to share them if you send me an email at andrea(at) with your contact info.

Disclaimer: As I mentioned, Influenster sent me the items mentioned in this post.  They didn’t pay me anything to write about how much I enjoyed using them.


There’s been a lot of talk over the past few days about Klout.  Klout “measures your influence online” and assigns you a Klout score based on that influence.  The mysterious way they develop Klout scores changed this week and a lot of people are mad about their dropping Klout scores.  While I wasn’t thrilled that my score dropped five points overnight, I still like Klout for their Klout Perks program.

With Klout Perks, you can get free stuff based on your influence.  One of my influential topics is Food, so I was eligible to receive the Top Chef Essentials Kit that is pictured above.  It came with the How to Cook Like a Top Chef cookbook, a set of Top Chef Tongs, a coupon for a Healthy Choice Frozen entrée and a 14-day trial to Top Chef University.  All I had to do to get this fun orange box mailed to me was check out the Klout Perks section of the website and press the “Claim This Perk” button.  It took just a few seconds to enter my mailing address and it arrived in a couple of weeks.
