As a blogger I occasionally have opportunities to receive products and review them. This was one of my main reasons for becoming self hosted. Anytime I am given an opportunity to review a product I promise to be truthful about my thoughts. Last weekend I shared two such opportunities on Instagram!
The first thing I received was two tins of Blue Diamond Almonds! I’ve talked about my love of these tasty almonds before, but in case you weren’t aware, you can also sign up for the Tastemakers program! When there are new opportunities, you apply to be selected, and then if selected you receive free product. Of course when you are showcasing the products on social media, you need to include the #ad to be FTC compliant. (if you’re not sure about that, read here.)
These almonds I gifted to my friend Emily as she is busy starting her first big girl job and deserved a good snack. Although I did make her open them so I could taste them, and both Honey flavors were amazing! Now I need to find the Honey Mustard Nut Thins.
The second package I received was from Influenster. This is the 3rd time I’ve received something from them, and this is the best box yet! I immediately started using the softlips cube, and think it is awesome, I received the mint flavor, but would also love the Vanilla.
Influenster has the option to do extra work for extra points, which would then possibly allow you to get extra stuff. They also are more specific about what they want tagged and submitted on social media. Also, the require the below discloser.

Remember I also received the Blue Diamond Honey Almonds for free, but all reviews of any products are my own thoughts.
