Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel insoles

My latest campaign was the Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel insoles. I got a free pair of the insoles to try, and I was actually really pleased with them! The instructions for using them were simple enough to follow. I decided to put them in my gym shoes since I use those whenever I workout or go on long walks (like the zoo or Cantigny....) After a 2+ mile walk/jog, my feet still weren't the least bit achy or tired. That was a HUGE improvement! I was really excited with the results of trying the insoles. If you are on your feet a lot, consider giving them a try.

It's Snack Time!

My next campaign was the Green Giant Veggie Snack Chips! I got to try two flavors for free: Zesty Cheddar and the Multigrain Sweet Potato with Sea Salt. 

My favorite flavor was the Zesty Cheddar. It almost has the feel of the baked potato chips, with lots of crunch and flavor. Each serving has 17g of whole grain, and there is 0g of trans fat. NO MSG!! :) 

The Sweet Potato chips were thinner, but still crunchy, with a subtly sweet flavor enhanced by light sea salt. These would be great with a good salsa or cheese. 

I was definitely happy with these healthier options from Green Giant. I'll be looking for them in the stores!

Smiley Face!

Thanks to my friend, Katie, I was introduced to the amazing site It was here I was invited to this campaign and was able to try this product free!

Anyway, here come the before and after pics:

Icky, I know, but you can see a difference, can't you? I used a product called Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream. I'm pretty pale, so I used the light/medium shade. I LOVED it! Here are my favorite things about the cream:

1) It is very light. I can't even feel it on my face!
2) It doesn't look heavy on my face like other foundations/concealers. 
3) The shade is perfect! It doesn't leave me looking orange. :)
4) It's oil-free! While being free of oil, it doesn't strip the face, but moisturizes it.
5) It's also a sunscreen (SPF 20). 

Lots of things to love about it. Give it a try!
