My favorite SheSpeaks blog this year was in early Octobor, and was about American Apparel's rejection of Nancy Upton (who received the most web votes) as the winner of their Plus Sized model contest. Great comments.

In 2011 I started my own small ebay "business" which is starting to take off which will be a more positive outlook for 2012. I will be elligible to retire this year, but being single, kids grown, grandkids on their way to being grown, I'll keep working. I'm going to start saving money toward retirement. Due to age, my health has started showing the signs so I'll start doing better, like eating more whole wheats, veggies and fruits.

Roc was my favorite program last year and I am now a regular user of all their products. Cravebox will hopefully become another favorite even though I missed out on December's box. I am patiently waiting for my chance at this month's cravebox and looking forward to my next SheSpeaks product trial. Thanks for all you do.

I enjoyed taking part in the Johnsonville sausage program. I think they make your food taste great when adding it to a dish. I had a chance to try ones that I usually did not get before. My favorite one to add to a dish is the sweet sausage. Yum, it is delicious.

I love to read the articles (blogs) on SheSpeaks. Many are entertaining and some are quite informative. One of my favorites was " Early Twenties Too Young To Say 'I Do?" In this day and age early 20s is way too young to say "I do". So much maturing goes on from the early twenties up to the early thirties. Our whole thought patterns change. My generation generally married young and my mother's generation even younger. Today, thirty is the new twenty!

I didn't do any of those programs but my favorite blog was about marriage in your early twenties. I found it interesting how times have changed. Getting married before 25 was more common in my mothers generation. Me getting married at the ripe old age of 30 would have been odd back then.

My favorite SheSpeaks program of the year was RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Cream Challenge. I think it is a really good product and my skin was a little sensitive to the product and they actually followed through and sent me the product for sensitive skin which I was really not expecting at all. I love SheSpeaks and learn a lot from all the reviews.

I have had a lot of fun this year with SheSpeaks! If I had to say which program I had the most fun with this year, it would be the Torani's Authentic Coffee House Flavor Program. I had a great time trying the flavors and writing a blog on the creative recipes these syrups can be used for. Thank you for a great 2011!

in 2011 I have saved money which is good. I lost my job so that resulted in me filling out samples and joining a ton of sites where you can get free products! I joined She speaks and was accepted for the Care Free panty liners package! Recently I joined Curves to lose weight and to have something to do other than sitting at home all the time. When I joined Curves I was only walking and eating right. I found out though since I graduated high school in 2003 I have lost 70 pounds just by cutting a lot of fat out in my diet and been drinking mostly water and walking. Now that I joined Curves I love it! It's going to take time but I believe I can do it and I know I can! This is my year to lose weight and find a job as well!
