Because I’m nearly-constantly reporting stories for women’s magazines, and frequently receive swag–either from VIP lounges from events like The Sundance Film Festival, or from companies seeking coverage, I’ve got the inside track on a wide variety of products—everything from anti-wrinkle creams to ski gear. And I love nothing more than sharing what I know—especially when I can’t find a way to cover these things for a story. I’ll always tell you why I decided to include the product, and whether it was given to me for free or not. Also, I’m going to write about my consumerist tendencies, and publicly lust after certain products and experiences. Why? Because I want to get the discussion going about whether you’ve ever tried it, and what you thought.
