Des Absurdités is written by Aliyah, a 20-something grad student in Pittsburgh.
Hello and thanks for taking the time to read my blog!
I'm a recent transplant to Pittsburgh from New Jersey, where I lived all my life until August 2013. Now I'm a grad student in the School of Medicine at Pitt (PhD, not MD!). My blog is a mix of product reviews, musings, deals, and whatever else I feel like writing about! This blog is an eclectic mix, hence the name Des Absurdités, which loosely translates as randomness from French!
A hobby of mine for a long time has been free sample hunting. It started as a way for me to get more mail, but quickly grew in to a way for me to get as much as possible for free! Now, in addition to simply receiving free things for my own use, I accept items for review. I participate in a number of different websites/organizations to receive products for review. I've also gotten into couponing as a way to make my stipend go further. You really can get anything for free (or really cheap ;-) !
