making money doing surveys

First I want to tell you that I personally do not work for any company and results on these sites may vary. Not everybody will have success doing surveys! I have been doing them for a few months now to earn extra cash as a SAHM. 
I have seen many people get mad and call survey sites bogus or a waste of time. OK well lets discuss this... Will surveys get you rich? NO Lets be real this is not a get rich fast type of deal here... Do they work? In my opinion YES they do however you need to remember you don't get nothing for nothing in this life. If you want to make money doing surveys then you have to put in the hours! That's just how it is their is no way around it.

I put in around 3 hours each day and can make sometimes $90 a week.. To me 3hrs isn't a big deal when I would be normally watching TV of a night. Like I said its not a get rich scheme but its an awesome way to pay for Christmas without it hurting your pocket!

It's hard to be successful using just one site, You can make money sure but at a slower rate so in my opinion search for your favorite companies out there. 


SwagBucks HERE! the trick to this site is to do gold surveys and partner surveys to rack up points. You can also watch video's, read content etc to earn points.

Testicular Cancer awareness and Tommy John

Hello readers,

Did you know November is Men's Health month (including testicular cancer awareness)? I will be honest, I did not, until I heard about theTesticular Cancer Foundation through Tommy John! 100% of all donations made to the Testicular Cancer Foundation go to the cause, because angel investors cover their overhead.  This is simply amazing for the men we know and love. Ladies give your men a little kick in the pants and make them aware of TC!

TommyJohn and the Testicular Cancer Foundation are trying to raise awareness of this disease, which is the most common and curable form of cancer in men ages 15-35. One male is diagnosed with this disease every hour, so it is super important to share this message.

How is Tommy John helping?

  • They are giving 5% of all sales coming from our limited edition “Mustache and Ball” collection
  • They are contributing $10 for each purchase made by new customers who were referred by someone else
  • They are donating $1 for each entry in our Instagram contest up to $1,000 (more on that below)

What’s in it for your readers?

  • Instagram contest: they are running a “Share a pair win a pair” contest on Instagram. To enter, simply take a picture of any pair of round objects, and tag them on instagram @TommyJohnWear, @TesticularCancerFoundation & #SupportYourBalls for a chance to win a pair of men’s underwear from Tommy John.

Smiley360 - Freschetta Pizza

Freschetta® Pizza
Frozen pizza shouldn't simply taste better. It should be better.
That’s why Freschetta® frozen pizzas are made with 100% real cheeses, premium meats and crunchy vegetables, all on flavorful sauces. Whether you love your crust soft and thick like our Naturally Rising pizza, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside like our BRICK OVEN™ pizza, or even light and crunchy like our Thin Crispy pizza, there's a crust made just for you.
No other pizza tastes like a Freschetta® pizza because no other pizza is made like Freschetta® pizzas. - Smiley360

Smiley360 sent me a coupon for a FREE pizza to try, I went to my local Walmart store and got my Freschetta Pizza. Honestly I didn't know what to expect from a home cooked frozen pizza as many claim to be just as good as the next.
I was excited to see that Freschetta offered a variety of styles and toppings! It was easy to prepare in the oven and this pizza really did rise!
The taste was rich and delicious giving us that pizzeria taste right out of our own oven..

I also noticed that Freschetta now offer a Gluten Free pizza option! find out more HERE!

This pizza was a total hit in my house, my kids went as far as to say they wanted to turn Fridays into PIZZA FRIDAYS

OB Tampons #free #sample #Smiley360

o.b.® comfort and protection that’s discreet.
The only one with SilkTouch® cover for ultimate comfort and protection.
- Personal placement provides optimal comfort and protection
- Expands to fit your unique body
- Fluid-Lock® grooves for locked-in leak protection that last for up to 8 hours
- No applicator
- Regular and super absorbencies

My Thoughts:

So when Smiley360 sent me a free sample of OB tampons to try I was skeptical to say the least. While OB brand has been around forever and has a great reputation I was intimidated to try out this tampon. I'm a girl who has always needed an applicator with my tampon! What if my finger gets messy? What if I can't get it in in the right place? What if I leak while trying to get it into position?

OMG how wrong was I... REALLY ladies I was so wrong. OB tampons are so much smaller to fit into your bag without an applicator. They also have a "finger pocket" design groove so it lets you know exactly where to place your finger while inserting the tampon... no messy fingers! 
It is also has a "silk" touch so its very comfortable to wear with a fluid lock protect you from leaking. 
Inserting: was easier then I thought, because their was no applicator the tampon follows the natural line of your body.

Needless to say my experience was so positive I wish I would of tried OB sooner! 

Thanks! Smiley360 and OB my monthly visits have become much more bearable.

For his Pleasure (playboys of Boston)

For His Pleasure (Playboys of Boston)For His Pleasure by Suzanne Rock
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was so excited to continue this series, For his pleasure continues on after'At his service' with Ari running away from an arranged marriage to help her families business, straight into the arms of her brothers enemy Jason Stone.

Jason I was super intrigued by and wanted to learn more about him. In our previous encounters with Jason he has always come across as a ruthless business man. I wanted to peel back the layers and find out what was underneath!
Ari does a spectacular job at shaking this play boy to the core... And when danger threatens Jason and Ari, he must do all he can to protect her, himself and the business he as worked so hard to build.. Even if that means turning to his business Rival Leo for help!

I loved this book it made for a great reading edition to the playboys of Boston. Ari was a strong vibrant character who just needed to spread her wings and Jason was a man in need of somebody to fight for, his history was shocking but made for an explosive storyline... I can't wait to meet these characters once again.
