SheSpeaks Ghiradelli Chocolate Squares Review

Good Evening, I hope you enjoyed the teaser I posted earlier this month, If you happen to miss it, no worries simply CLICK HERE .But before we begin, let's talk a bit about Here is what they had to say on their site, "SheSpeaks is an online community where smart and insightful women come together to share their opinions and see the power of their collective voices in action."

Which is one of the main reasons why I joined, for there was a time where I did not have my very own blog. I was seeking to speak my mind, as well as read what other women thought. Long story short, SheSpeaks was and is the thing for me. For I'm able to read, share and experience different products. Now this is my very 1st SheSpeaks review, so please be kind.

Around late January I was contacted by Shespeaks for the Ghiradelli Milk Chocolate Squares Program, and of course jumped at this opportunity. I simply love chocolate! It's my absolute weakness :) But Ghiradelli is a knotch above the rest! Don't get me wrong, I will always favor Hersey's and Ferrero Roche but Ghiradelli is one of those little delights that is best saved or a special occassion or ant occassion.If you're looking for a great gift for someone special in your life, look no further Ghiradelli is the way to go! By itself or paired with another snack, Ghiradelli will be sure to make your love stand out. Believe me, I know. Upon receiving these delicious treats, I simply couldn't help myself. I wound up eating half the bag in one sitting! They're simply delicious, the best way to describe them is they melt in your mouth NOT in your hand. Please visit your local Walgreens and/or Target to purchase your own :)

Special Thanks to SheSpeaks for this great sample.

Mail Haul: Freebies for the Week of February 20th

Good Morning! I hope you all are enjoying your Monday Morning. I know, I am. There's nothing better than waking up early, and searching for some great freebies. Speaking of which, I know I haven't tweeted or posted any freebies for today due to the fact there are SCAMS out there. Just listen to this, during the weekend there were 3 Free Samples Scams, so please beware. I am taking extra procautions to ensure i bring only LEGIT freebies to you. I hope you will be kind, and give me a few hours to draw up a list of all the REAL freebies. Thanks, Now onto Mail Haul

Here is a full of list of all My freebies:) (Heads up, it was an Amazing Week)
1) Barbie Collector's Catalog - This is a great freebie, I got a few laughs out of this.

2) Escada Taj Sunset Sample - This is purely a strip sample, nothing special but still great to have.

3) Samsung Note Postcard - i ordered this for my friend but it unfortunately did NOT come with the message I requested.

4) AcneFree Therapedic Sulfur Mask - Ialways look for new masks to try, and AcneFree has this great freebie on their facebook Page, which is the 99 Cent Trial Size. I have yet to try it, but Spa Day is around the corner (Tomorrow) and I'm looking forward to seeing how it works. But best of all it comes with a dollar off coupon.

5) Gillette Venus Proskin Razor - Venus' Facebook Page is always having giveaways, but I rarely ever score a freebie. Lucky for me, I finally did. But best of all, it came fairly quick:)

6) 2 Tempur-pedic Information Kits which included DVD, Booklet and Pillow Sample - I don't remember requesting a Tempur Pedic Information Kit, let alone 2 of them. So when these came in the mail, I was a bit more than surprised, more like is this a joke. Either way this is always a nice little freebie to receive.

7) 2 NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30 - I clearly remember ordering this on the 1st and seeing it not go through. So I did what we all do, resumbit the information. Well I guess their form was a bit off because I receive 2 Free samples of NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Misturizer. Although these are mere sample sizes, I don't mind. For these are my very 1st NARS products:)

8) Nuby Medical Kit - This is a prize I won from Nuby's Facebook page. If you are interested in winning some great Free Baby Products, head on over to facebook and like their page. They have giveaways/contests almost everyday.

Thanks for stopping by, MAKEmeUPLamour

(Sorry for the blurry Photo, Camera is still out of wack. Hoping to fix this situation soon.)
