Box Swap with Victoria of That Cold September Night and The Gluten Free Girl

I recently participated in a swap organized by Martyna of Spoolish and Miche of Buttons and Birdcages. This was supposed to be a February swap, but due to some mishaps on my part, my assigned partner and I werent able to post last month.

Through this swap, I was introduced to Victoria. She runs two blogs: That Cold September Night and The Gluten Free Girl. She is such a sweetheart. The box that she sent me was awesome!

Sponsored: Try the Latest Products for Free with PINCHme

This post is sponsored by PINCHme via HerCampus; however, all opinions are 100% mine and 100% true.

One of my pet peeves, which is one that bothers many other people as well, is to buy a new product and end up not liking it. The product then goes to waste. If youre lucky, someone will buy it off of you. Otherwise, it goes in the trash.

Therefore, one of my favorite things to do is to sample products before buying them. With PINCHme, this has become super easy to do!

PINCHme is a website that allows you to try up to three samples for free. Yes, you read that right; you pick three samples out of the ones that they have, and theyll ship it to you; all of this at no cost to you whatsoever!

Whats the catch, you must be wondering. There is none! In exchange for your free samples, all you have to do is provide feedback for the product. So, basically, PINCHme ships up to three samples to you for free, you try it, then you rate the product on different aspects. Its super easy!

I would like to mention at this point that Ive used PINCHme in the past, and when I was approached to write a post about it, I wasnt going to say no. I love it! To facilitate this review, I was sent three samples.

Sponsored: Spring Cleaning with Modere

I participated in a blogger activation on behalf of Millennial Central for Modere. I received a promotional item to facilitate my review and to thank me for my participation.

It has been above freezing point in Iowa lately, so I guess that I can say with more conviction that it is finally Spring. Naturally, the thought of Spring brings to mind Spring cleaning. As a beauty and style blogger, unfortunately, Spring brings to my mind new trends. The upside to this is that Modere gives me the best of both worlds: I can Spring clean with the latest trends.

Modere is an online retailer of personal care, health and wellness, and household care products. It operates under two simple philosophies: safety and accessibility. Safety has been a huge issue lately; innovation has brought upon us products that do more harm than good. In the words of one of my friends, "We are taking medication to fight the side effects from other medication that we are taking." Modere is against this; it strongly believes in crafting the safest products on the market, products that are "inspired by nature" and "delivered by science."

It also makes sophistication accessible. Products nowadays only focus on one of two things; if the product works, the packaging is usually unattractive, and vice versa. Modere believes that when you buy a product, you should love everything about it, which is why its products are "equal parts style, sophistication, and functionality."

Before you brush this off as promotional pizzazz, you should know that I was fortunate enough to get a chance to review a few products to see if Modere can walk the talk.

Review: Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads

I received this complimentary product for review purposes with no compensation. All opinions are 100% mine and 100% true.

People view anti-aging skincare products as belonging on the vanities of women who are in their 40s because that is apparently the range when age starts to show in your features. I wont deny it; your 40s is the time when wrinkles and dark spots start appearing. Well, today Im going to tell you that although it is highly unlikely for someone in their early 20s like myself to get crows feet, the early 20s is actually the age range to start preventing them from forming. With anti-aging products, prevention is better than cure. That is why I decided to review the Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads.
