Just Some Minor Annoyances..

So, many of you know I have been running this blog for about a month now. I think it has really blossomed since then, and I have been having a lot of fun. I did not expect this blog to take over the majority of my days, but it has been worth it. I love trying new things, and I get to almost daily!

So what am I annoyed about you ask?

Well.. I have been hosting a lot of giveaways. That part is great, the not so great part is that some companies send me something in a sample size only to want me to offer a reader the full size if not better. To me, that doesn't seem fair. I admit that I am being a bit of a brat about it, but hey.. If I am the one who found the company, took the time to email them, test their product for several weeks, then give an honest review (which takes AT LEAST an hour or two to write up) why do I get gypped?

Don't get me wrong, I am thrilled that you guys get to enjoy something awesome. But to be fair, I feel like most of my followers are here for one thing only: free stuff. And hey, winning giveaways is what drove me to blogging in the first place! But now that I have been blogging a bit more, I am hoping that more people want to read about other topics and that my honest reviews help people find new products to try. I am not just a giveaway blog, though it may seem like such. I have just been working my butt off to offer giveaways to draw more people in. Yes it has worked, and yes many of you are actually engaged in conversations with me. BUT I want you guys to learn about green living and be able to grow with me and my family. That means a lot to me! I want all of you to be happy and healthy for many years to come.

Thank you guys SO much for reading this, and being a part of my blog. I hope to see you all stick around! I have a lot of great things in store for everyone.

Rant complete.


  1. I agree that the company's should at least give you a full size product to use. They should be thrilled that you are promoting their product and giving all of us readers a chance to find out about new products. I am happy that I am finding about terrific products from your super reviews. Thanks!

  2. i honestly think on some things its not really possible to get an accurate opinion on a sample size product. like shampoo in the tiny pouches that have maybe a days worth in it.. if i'm going to decide if i like something i have to use it at least a week.

  3. i think it's good that companies engage in this type of advertising, it allows CONSUMERS to make the decisions and let them know what... pardon my language.. sucks and what doesn't suck!

    but i also think that the bloggers should get a decent-sized product to review, so they can make an honest review!
