Last week was a great mail week. The bills still arrived, but along with them came lots of free goodies!
If you are on twitter, you might have heard some buzz around Klout scores. Unless you opt out of it, if you have twitter you have Klout. You can connect your social media accounts together and it gives you a score based on your influence and topics you talk about. Some people are against it, as there are cheesy ways of raising your score, and it can be viewed as just a popularity thing.

My first item to review was a little snacker cup:

Free stuff all around! Also, this week the P&G Brand Sampler went live again! Looks like I’ll be getting a Gillette razor and some Olay Total Effects in the mail soon :)
