My Third Klout perk: Real Techniques makeup brushes

     I just got in the mail my newest Klout perk. Its a set of makeup brushes from Real Techniques. The kit contained a large blush brush, three facial brushes and four eye brushes. For those who don't know I'm a makeup addict. I love the stuff... I will be trying the brushes this weekend on myself and will let you know what I think. So far they are very soft and the handles are rubberized and strong.
   Also in the coming weeks I will let my girlfriends try them and have a #RTGirlsnightin. I just have to set a date:) I will also tell you my initial take on them this week.After I try then with my Makeup. Thanks for stopping by to listen to my Babble. ~D

Getting samples and other free stuff: Part 1

     Ok who doesn't love free stuff? No matter a full size or a sample size. Its always great to get free things...Well since I'm out of work and have a lot of time on my hands. I signed up with quite a few companies to do surveys and test products. Some places want reviews for their products. I am willing to do that. I'm the kind of person if I love something the whole world should know. If I dislike it then the same goes.
     So far I've signed up with a few product testing and consumer panels.  Also with some survey companies. I did a few Twitter parties too. I haven't earned anything for my time but it takes a while. Its only been 2 weeks. When I start to see what works and what doesn't I will blog and give tips so you will have an easier time in search of free stuff;)

Twitter Parties: My initial take on them

     As some of you know I'm a Twitter addict. Yes, I'll admit it! I feel free to say what I want there...In 140 characters or less. Lol! That's an amazing feat for me. As you may know I tend to talk a lot. Or as I call it Beba babble (Beba is my nickname fyi)
     So this week I decided to try my hand at Twitter parties. Sounds like a great idea. I interact and answer questions for major companies and earn prizes. I was so excited. My goal was 2 parties. I liles them so much I did 5. I am out of work and have the time.I won't mention the companies I did them for. But they were of a varied subject matter. I did technology, skin care, family, and household products.  However, I didn't win a prize. Maybe I went into it thinking I'm for sure to win a prize. Which was a bad idea! I'm there for the interaction, fun, helpful tips and meeting new Tweeps. Yes I call my twitter friends I'm gonna continue to try these Twitter parties and hopefully do a little better in the prize category. If I find any ideas or tips I will share them with you.
     However, if your asking about how I was invited or became aware of these parties. Some I was invited via websites like Influencer or Vocal point (I am a fairly new member of both) Others where posted on the companies Twitter page or Facebook pages. And lastly you can always just use your old friend Google to find out where all us cool kids are hanging out. I did.Good luck everyone with Twitter parties. And if any one has any tips I'd love to hear and share them.

My Second Klout Perk: Blowfish for hangovers

I just received my second Klout perk. This time its Blowfish for hangovers.  Kinda ironic when my first was cocktails. Lol! Well this is 2 samples of effervescent tablets to be taken in the morning after a night of drinking. A set of two? Hmmm his and hers ;)
They must know I've been know to have a few bad hangovers. Well I haven't tried these yet but I will after my next night out. I will post a review of them then.

Getting the most out of Social Media

     First if I didn't say it before get yourself a Klout account. You link all of your social media accounts to it. Personally my Klout score is pretty good. I do tweet a lot. I have about 1000 followers and do try and interact with people and companies...
     Klout also issues "perks" to people depending on their score. I think over 55 and your in perkable territory. Is perkable a word? I'm not sure but it works for me. Anyway, this is where you wanna be gaining perks. So far I've gained 2 bottles of Veev Vita Frute, cocktails. Samples of Blowfish for hangovers. Hmmm maybe they were afraid id over do it on the free cocktails? Also I'm waiting on a makeup brush set from Real Techniques to host a mini girls night in and try. So when I say try klout I mean it. And no I don't work for them. I'm just excited about the free stuff and wanna share the wealth.
     Lastly when you see those send a tweet and you'll win a prize if you use this hashtag #____. Don't dismiss them. I know I use to. But how long does it take to type 140 characters? I just did one and won a $150 gift card from Mastercard. So it doesn't hurt to try. You never know what you can win. I will post a little more information of sites and what works soon:)

Getting free stuff via the internet

Ok so we all want free stuff! I mean if you don't, that's cool...More free for me. Yay!  *happy dance* I am currently out of work and can't do much as far as sitting at a computer. So in my spare time, I've been searching for things to do via my smartphone. I have a Samsung s3 at the moment. Anywho I've found a ton of sites that I've signed up for samples and to be a product tester...As soon as I get a few in the mail I will post a new blog with links to sites that have worked for me...So far the best thing I've done, is get an account with Klout. There you link all your social media accounts to and can earn perks. Just this week I've earned 2 bottles of cocktail from Veev called Vita Frute.
Hopefully my other ventures will be just as fruitful.
