Yes folks, we have some more swag!
I have some other stuff to talk about, but I’ll try and keep this post strictly on topic.
This was a relatively good week for free stuff! Perhaps I should list it by day?
A health & lifestyle magazine had a martinis and manicures party at Lux Spa in Yorkville. Oooh, swanky! I went and ate some really good appetizers, drank a gross bluish martini and had a pretty good dry manicure. Tis the season, so I got OPI’s Black Onyx colour. It looks fab! The lady did a really good job on my nails, and they stayed perfect until I knicked some colour off while cutting leeks today.
Another magazine came in an did a lunch presentation. It was awesomely catered. Normally food at lunch meetings sucks. This time they went all out and brought in steak and chicken, wine, beer and some fantastic salads and desserts. It was heaven. After the meeting there was a little “quiz” and we all walked away with Starbucks gift cards for our efforts.
A publishing company had a big shin-dig at the mammoth club CiRCA. Massive place, that. It was just the usual drink and schmooze, then there was a presentation by the creator of the CSI tv show, Anthony Zuiker. He didn’t look anything like I thought he would! Big nerdy guy, but nice! I schmoozed with him at the after party. Walked out with a modest goody bag which included a fancy cookie and a USB key.
Today I went to the LOULOU shopping party at some place in Yorkville called RK. If it’s in Yorkville, you know it’s going to be great! Now, if you’ve never been to a LOULOU shopping party, you really should go. Everyone gets a goody bag and they’re usually pretty great!
So, what did I get?
- A copy of LOULOU magazine
- A beautiful pashmina from RK. I almost bought one just like this, and I’m glad I didn’t since I got it for free!
- Redken hair care samples & haircut discount at some fancy salon
- 2 condoms! woohoo!
- Frizz-ease sample
- Biore face wash sample
- LOULOU mini nail file
- Bubble bath that smells delish
- Jergens lotion sample
- ANOTHER razor (I have like 18 of them now!)
- A pack of 5 gum
- mmmm delicious purse pack of Dove chocolates
- iPod Touch bungee case (now I only need an iPod Touch!)
- Full size lipstick
- Full size lip liner
- Full size Victoria’s Secret lip gloss (Why did we get this? Did Vicky come up to Canada??)
I also got to drink some really nice champagne/wine type stuff (strawberry!) and eat some hors d’oeuvres. Not bad, just for showing up! I was only there for 10 minutes, tops. No way I could afford anything in that store, even with a 30% discount. But they had nice jackets.
Well, that’s all for now. I don’t anticipate anything remarkable will happen on Friday, but you never know, right?
