Top 25/Bottom 25 Companies of 2010

I have decided since this has been a great year that I would make a top 25 and a bottom 25 list of all the companies I have worked with through 2010. Just because not all the companies that were good made it to the top doesn't mean their not good companies and same with the ones that don't make it to bad doesn't mean their the best this is just my opinion. I'm holding into consideration several things from shipping time, customer care, product quality, PR, & sending out the winners products but most of all the companies that I have listed its about communication to me. I hope everyone enjoys my list and thanks so much to all the companies I worked with this year and if the company went above and beyond in customer service will really make them be part of top 25.


This does not include any companies that were sponsored posts, etsy shops, or just giveaways it has to be review companies or review/giveaways, also although all the adult companies I work with are all great they won't be included due to this not being an adult post but all the adult companies have their own post.


Upfront just because a company didn't make it to my list doesn't mean their not a good company to me or that I wouldn't recommend them. I had a hard time making this list cause their were so many good companies this year. I narrowed these down by the ones that talked to me, that made me feel like they we're real and not too business like now don't get me wrong that's good in some cases but after always seeing the same messages over and over again you start feeling like you don't matter much to them. So when a company goes out of their way to crack a joke, make you smile, send you a Christmas card or just be your friend in general or comes back cause they enjoy working with you makes them real special to me.


Thank You PR's, Marketing, & Owners Of These Companies!

Beautiful Unique Vanities

I love to have beautiful things in my house especially unique items so I was so happy when I came across this site with such beautiful and unique vanities. Whether your looking for a very beautiful and unique bathroom vanity or mirrors and even faucets then this is the place for you. I have been trying to figure out things for a house to be built in the future for us we haven't exactly figured everything out yet plus we need the money. Anyways I loved looking at the site they have several bath vanities that I'm trying to narrow down to getting. All the stuff is just so beautiful it is so hard to choose. One look at their site and you will see what I mean. I also love some of the mirrors they have absolutely exquisite. I love some of the faucets they have as well that we may get while we live where we do still talking that over with the husband. They also have more modern looking bathroom vanities they have something for everyone's taste that is what I love. I want to share with some of the items I found on their site that I love so much. Check out Unique Bathroom Vanities.












I am compensated with money for this sponsored post. This is 100% my life experience though.

Pepto Party Packs Review & Giveaway(Closed)



I received the Pepto Party Pack to review. I have had acid reflux disease since I was 16 and the brand Pepto Bismol has been a household name in my household due to that for years. It is a very trusted brand that I will stand behind for a long time. I think now days everyone has heard of them so I was excited to work with them again and get a chance to try out what they were offering and offer some stuff to ya'll as well. I have been wantin to get my niece a mp3 forever now she is 11 and she loves her music. My nephew has a cell phone with mp3 player built in so this was great for Amber. So I figured this couldn't have came at a better time so I gave her the ipod shuffle for Christmas to enjoy she was so happy she loves pink anyways. As far as the rest of the gift pack we kept for ourselves we're always needing plastic plates anyways when the kids come over and now my niece was even happier to use them. We used some of ours for Christmas so we didn't have to wash any dishes and the plates were actually stronger than I would've thought which was great I hate flimsy plates. The lights and such ma has planned to put up around the house for Valentine's day ha ha I know no one really decorates for it but my mom wants to so I'm cool with that. So thanks to Pepto Bismol for coming in handy for the holidays and even after eating Christmas dinner I was even happier to have the bottle of Pepto Bismol here to take for my acid reflux needs.

Mr Beams Anywhere Ceiling Light Review & Giveaway (Closed)





I received the Anywhere Ceiling Light from Mr Beams to review. We have been needin a outside light for awhile actually since we have lived here. We have a motion sensor light on the front porch but where we pull into the driveway with our truck its pitch black on the side of the house so I was so happy to get this. Joe has been atonement about me getting something like that but we were excited it was battery operated and we didn't have to have any light fixtures like we did on the front porch. I got this pretty fast and I put the batteries in it first thing and wow it blew me away at how bright it really was because the little light I would have never imagined would have been so bright. Anyways on a nice day we took it outside since it says its waterproof, and Joe put it up on the side of the house didn't take him long at all and it was in place and ready to go. Later on that day we went out and loved that when we came home it was dark so we got to try the light out. We set it up so when we pulled in its line of sensoring it turned on and lit up the yard pretty bright so we were able to get out of the vehicle and not worry about tripping or stepping in a hole or anything. This was a life savor and I recommend to anyone cause so far it works great and we have had rain and snow since having it out and it still works just fine. Mr Beams has one of the best lights I have found like this.
