Usually when I do a blogging event, I travel…
I go to New Orleans, Nashville, Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago…
I have never been less than 3 hours from my own front door…
Yesterday, I got to host an event in my own city. I was able to invite my every day friends, the “IRL’s” and I got to bring Princess.
Yesterday I got to share the excitement and fun of blogging and social media events with my ‘everdays’ – my ‘IRL’s’
Y’all know them.. they’re the family and friends whose kids go to school with my kids, the people whom I run into at the grocery store, the ones who see me at the gas station, kickball practice, meet the teacher and the reality of every day… the unpracticed, unscheduled, the un-events.
Yesterday, my worlds collided…
and I loved it.
Yesterday there was a unique alignment of stars and moons and PR companies and phenomenal brands and Garnier’s Greener Tour came to Corpus Christi, TX.
And not just any part of Corpus Christi, but the small-ish random-offshoot of Corpus Christi that we happen to have called home for the last seven years.
Because of this amazing collision of worlds and blessings, I was able to be a part of my friends getting treated to fun hairstyles
Getting some not really typical one on one time with product
I think what I enjoyed the most…
beyond the hairstyles and the giggles
and the getting to watch my friends get their first SWAG
(and it was some amazing SWAG)
beyond all that, it was watching my friends being listened to.
Not only was I watching them learning about a new side of a product that many of them already had in their homes, I got to see them share their thoughts and opinions on the products they currently use and the ones they didn’t know existed.
I got to play a tiny part in some of my favorite young ladies seeing that beauty and some beauty products, are far, far more than just skin deep
They learned about recycling, hydration, health and paying it forward…
They learned that no matter your path, you can make a difference.
You can impact the future.
That feeling, that knowledge, that empowerment… it is priceless.
And I am truly beyond blessed and humbled to be a part of it.
I have been compensated for my participation in Garnier’s Greener Tour. My thoughts, opinions, and photographs are completely my own.
Stay tuned… there is more to come… like a giveaway!
