Ok, so some of you might not like spiders but this is just fascinating.
Oh and that Net Casting spider needs to be in a horror movie, seriously. Just look at that face!

Freebie Friday!





Welcome to another edition of Freebie Friday, where I tell you what free samples and full sized products I received in the mail and how you can get them too. Someone asked me why I do a 'Freebie Friday" each week, so I'll tell you.

A while back I listed all the free samples and wins that I had received that previous year and so many people didn't believe that I could have gotten so many free things. So I decided to prove it by taking a picture every week and sharing the sites that I found the links to the freebies at. So now you too can get great free samples coming to your mailbox each week.

  You can find links to great samples at Hey It's Free and Freebie Shark.

This week I received:

From Generation Good... Wipes and Lotion.
From PinchMe...Olay body Wash, Hunts Tomato Paste, Bella Dog Food, Coupon for a free Barilla Pesto Sauce and Buy one Get one free dog food.
From ChatterBox...a full size Dove Deodorant.
On InboxDollars I won $16.10 for getting the highest score in a game.

Did you get any freebies this week?

Review: Target Beauty Box- February

I ordered another Target Beauty Box this month. It was $10 and to me well worth it because I was able to try a few products that I'd not tried before. 


Here's a list of what was in my box: 

Masque Bar Hydrating Peel Off Mask
Raw Sugar Raw Coconut and Mango Body Wash
Soap and Glory Face Soap and Clarity Face Wash
Gliss Ultimate Repair Shampoo
Gliss Ultimate Repair Conditioner
Sun Bum Sunless Self-Tanning Towelette
W3LL PEOPLE Expressionist Pro Mascara
3 samples of L’OrĂ©al Paris Pure-Clay Mask

Everything in this box was new to me, while I might have tried some of the Brands, I haven't tried any of these actual products. Anything that I don't want, I give to my daughter so she loves that. For just $10 there were quite a few products and samples in this box. 

Have you tried the Target Beauty Boxes yet? They come out each month but they only have so many boxes and when they're gone they're gone. They usually go pretty fast to so I try to post a link to them on my fb wall.

Favorite Picture of the Week


One of my older brother's who's mother is the bride in this picture of my dad's first wedding sent this picture over when he visited my younger brother. I'd never seen this picture before but loved it because not only did it have a picture of my dad where he's really young but on the left side are my grandfather, grandmother, aunt and uncle. The people on the right are family of my dad's first wife. I don't have many pictures of my aunt and uncle since my aunt passed away from cancer before I was born and my uncle also passed away from cancer while I was very young.

Review: Daily Goodie Box


What was in this months Daily Goodie Box: 

Nellie's All-Natural - Laundry Soda Packs - I'm always up to try a new laundry detergent and this worked as well as any other I've tried. 

JustChill - Stress Relief Drinks - Not a bad flavor and I even got Ken to try it and he said it was fine. Not a great flavor and unless it has cups of sugar and artificial flavors in it they hardly ever are, but it was definitely drinkable. 

Vermont Smoke Cure  - Cracked Pepper Beef & Pork Sticks - This was one of my favorite things in this box. I've made a note of the website because I will definitely be ordering more of this. 

Nature's Bakery - Raspberry Fig Bars - I wasn't sure about this but dang it was good. I sliced off a piece to let Ken try and and he liked it too. 

Jack N' Jill -  Natural Toothpaste - I'm always up for trying something new and since I'd never tried this before I was happy that it didn't have a bad taste to it. It works and tasted slightly like Raspberries. I think kids would really like this. Win win. 

Dream Water - Sleep Powder - I've tried this before and while it doesn't help me sleep *I blame menopause* it might help others sleep. 

Coffee Blocks - Butter Coffee - this is the last thing I tried because I was really not sure about this at all. You squeeze the packet a few times, squeeze it into your cup and add hot water. It is instant coffee with butter, egg yolk, vanilla and coconut oil. I don't drink much coffee but I did make it and try it and then Ken drank the rest of the cup. Both of us were surprised that it was quite tasty. 

Aloha - Daily Good Greens - I have to say that I'm not a fan. I mixed some in a cup of yogurt and wasn't a fan. Maybe if they were mixed in a drink they would be better but I didn't care for it.

XyliChew - Spearmint - I'm already a fan of spearmint so this was a nice flavored gum to chew. They have other flavors and I'm going to try some of them as well. 

Gorilly Goods - Organic Snacks - This is the product I was most looking forward to when I saw the picture of it. It was nuts and fruit but had a sweet curry flavoring on it and I didn't care for the flavorng. I love this type of snack and nuts and fruit like this are good for people like myself with diabetes.



This is my second Daily Goodie Box and more and more people seem to be getting these. I've now seen several of my FB friends get them and love them. They are completely free even the shipping is free and all you have to do is sign up and log in to the site each day to see if you've been given one. It's a nice box of freebies to try for a free box. Then just review the products in the box to be eligible for another one. Oh and one more thing, if you visit their FB Page, they give away Goodie Boxes to people who interact with their posts. So if you've tried before and weren't able to get a Goodie Box, there's even more ways to get one now. 

I'm a fan of subscription boxes and love trying new products for free so this was a huge hit with me. New products+free box = Fabulous!

Have you signed up? Have you received one of these boxes?

Disclosure: I received this box in exchange for an honest review.

My Grandson came over and spent the day with us right before Christmas. He fell asleep while watching cartoons. He turned 4 on January 31st.
