Mystery Shopping Companies

I have done mystery shopping for over 5 years so I am going to compile a list of companies I have worked with. These are verified and I have been paid by these. I will make a list since these days there are so many scams it's hard to know which companies are legit. I will make a page with all of them so keep checking it will take a little bit of time. Some companies go by referrals so if you want me to send one please send me a message with your email and location and I can send a referral.

Plum District Yes To Carrots Deal Review

 
  

Plum District has some really great deals. I just recently scooped up this deal. I was able to buy $40 worth of yes to carrots products for ONLY $12!!!! Shipping was a flat rate $5 so I feel I got a great deal. I usually use the yes to cucumber facial wipes and body wash but this time I am trying the yes to grapefruit!!! I am very excited. I am a huge fan of the baby line so I got bubble bath, baby facial wipes and TWO bottles of the baby shampoo/body wash. I love how gentle their baby products are. I am soooo happy with the value of the box! It was such a great deal! Make sure to check out plum district to catch deals like this.

Influenster Mary Kay Make Up Vox Box Review

I love being a part of Influenster. They send some really great boxes to try out and share reviews on. I was so exited when I got picked to do the Mary Kay box. I LOVE make-up so this was such a great box to get. I am already a huge Mary Kay fan as they have such great quality items. My box came with 5 FULL SIZED Mary Kay items. You can get all of the items that came in the box online at Mary Kay website Here is the link. http://www.marykay.com/
 Here is a look at my box.
Great box right??? I love it!!! So here is the first item in the box.
This is the Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara. The color is called I love black. This mascara is amazing. Mascara is my number one go to must have beauty item. No matter what I have to wear mascara everyday or I just don't feel right! I love how well this separates my lashes and does not clump. It also adds great length to your lashes so your eyes really stand out when using it. The retail value is $15.

The second item is the Mary Kay Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush
I love that this brush is made for cream products, and it works with any cream make up product you have. I don't like to use my hands when apply product since it adds oil to your face so this is such a great tool everyone should have.The bristles are very soft and it works really well.The retail value is $10

The third item is Mary Kay Lash Primer
This was my first time ever using lash primer so I was super excited to try it out. Since I am so in love with mascara I am shocked I had never used primer before. This is put on before you apply your mascara. I tired the mascara with the primer and without and I could tell the primer really helped with definition. I am now hooked on primer and added it to my routine. The retail value is $15.

The fourth item is Mary Kay cream eye color
I got the color violet storm. I love this color and think it is great for the summer. I have blue eyes so the violet looks great on me.I like that it is long lasting unlike some eye color. I didn't have to reapply any throughout the day which is a plus.They have the cream eye color in a lot of colors so if violet isn't for you they have others to try out. The retail value is $22

The fifth item is Mary Kay True Dimensions Lip Stick
The color I got was Pink Cherie. This is a great fun girly color. I love it and in the summer with my tan it looks fabulous. This lipstick is very moisturizing and my lips felt great when wearing it. It is also long lasting which is a plus! The retail value is $18

FINAL THOUGHTS: This was a great box and perfect for the summer time. I love that I got to try out five full size quality Mary Kay items. They have quality products that last and wear well. Once again all the items are available at Mary Kay website. Here is the link. http://www.marykay.com/

I received this box for free from influenster and Mary Kay to provide an honest review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own.

July 2013 Citrus Lane Subscription Box Review 13 month old Boy

Well I got my first Citrus Lane box. I got it for my son who is 13 months old. This came at a great time because it came right after his birthday so it was like a bonus birthday gift! I love the thought of getting something in the mail every month! I am a stay at home mom of four young boys so I look forward to the mail! I want to share with everyone what came in my box.This is a picture of everything I got in my first box. I got five items total.
The first item was a Melissa and Doug peek-a-boo toy. This was a really fun neat gift. All my kids have been playing with it. They are 6,5,3,and 13 months. It is wooden which I love and very good quality. I love the Melissa and Doug brand toys so this is a great item to get. The retail value according to Amazon is $8.25
The next item is Ella's Kitchen mangoes and carrots nibbly fingers. At first i wasn't sure if my son would like these since carrots and mangoes together sounded a little strange to me. Well he loved them!!! I tried them and actually they are not bad at all. He already ate the whole box and we picked up another one at Target today. The retail value of the box I got at Target today was $3.29.

The third item was a Zo-li sumo snack stacker. I have already used this twice since just getting it. It is so great for the diaper bag. It has three compartments for snacks and a neat handle. I love that it is BPA free as well. It is very well quality and such a hit for me. The Amazon retail is $14.72


The fourth item is Cool It buddy instant cold packs. I have all boys so these will come in handy! These are always great to have on hand. The pack come with two. The amazon retail price is $4.99.

The fifth item is free 10 postgrams gift code. I haven't used these yet but you can send postgrams to people right from your phone pictures. The retail value is $10.
FINAL THOUGHTS:
I really loved this box and so did my family. I got a lot of useful items and the overall value of the box is $41.25 I am already using the stuff I got and can't wait for August box. The boxes are $25 a month or if you choose a subscription you get a price break.  It's worth it to try it out. You can order your first box and their is no obligation to keep getting boxes you can cancel at anytime.

Filippo Berio Olive Oil Dinner Recipes


These are two great recipes I made with my Free bottle from BzzAgent of Filippo Berio. The top photo is a great summer grill idea. Cut up some veggies of your choice and sausage. Then wrap in tin foil and toss on the grill for 10-15 minutes. When it comes out add some Filippo Berio and your set for a great meal. The second is simply pasta with fresh tomatoes some herbs and a splash of Filippo Berio. These are easy and great tasting meals. Thank you Buzz Agent for the chance to try out Filippo Berio and share it with others.
