So, after my post about Project Runway a couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by JustFab, the accessoreis sponsor for the show this season. They asked if I’d like to receive a couple of products for review and to giveaway to readers.
And would I like to host a viewing of the episode airing October 1 and JustFab would supply some fun giveaways.
Again … Yes!
Which is how I came to invite 94 of my closest friends and family to my 1200 square foot house this coming Thursday.
Basically, I invited everyone I have an email address for within a fifty mile radius.
Stud Muffin was a little freaked out at first. “You … do you know … where are you going to put everyone?”
Women watching fashion television don’t care about something as silly as having a seat.
My party plan:
Invite a bunch of people. ✔
Tell JustFab how many I expect. ✔
Order a couple of products from JustFab. ✔
Pick up the food JustFab is ordering for us.
Vacuum and dust.
Set out name tags. and a sign asking that gals in their 20s and 30s please sit on the floor. 40s and 50s get the dining room chairs and plastic patio chairs. 60s and 70s get the couch, love seat, and recliner.
Set out napkins, paper plates, plastic cups.
Watch a fun television show and party with all my friends.
There are a few things I love about this opportunity. And it’s not just the prospect of free stuff.
First, there’s going to be a great cross-section of my friends. Church friends, writer friends, family are all coming. Many have never met because my two worlds seldom intersect.
Also, I love that this is about accessories. I love that Ashley is doing such a great job with her designs. She’s proving that women of all sizes can enjoy fashion and looking good.
And of course, friends, food, fashion, all in one place, under one (fairly small) roof.
