Influenster Love!

Being a blogger comes with some pretty awesome perks, one of them is being a member of Influenster. Influenster is an online community of educated consumers who test products then write reviews. As a member, I’m sent products to try out and give my honest opinion to my readers and the entire Influenster community.

As a member I’ve received everything from beauty items to fitness wear and have been able to share great reviews for these items (I just happen to love most of what they send me!). I think my favorite would be the Victoria’s Secret box (read the review HERE) with their super fancy sports bra. Normally I wouldn’t spend $50+ on a sports bra but this bra really stood up to the cost and I recommended it to a bunch of friends. You can play around on to read reviews and learn more about how you can get free swag to test out.

If you love free stuff (and let’s be real, who doesn’t?) you can join Influenster. Send me a note on Tumblr or email me at, I’ve got 19 invites I can share!

The next time someone (white people and ignorant black people alike) tell you that the Black Panthers were a terrorist group/hate group, kindly ask them if the KKK ever did any of this. As long as YOU know what the panthers stood for and represented, that’s all that matter
