Old Navy Bundle-Up In-Store Party

As a member of Crowdtap, I am able to apply for sample & shares and parties...well at the end of November, I was informed that I got a spot in this Old Navy Bundle-Up In-Store Party! I was ecstatic...this meant I was able to select 3 gals to join me...and we'd all get a free outfit from Old Navy! I planned my party for Dec. 3rd, but unfortunately, the party pack with the ever important coupons did not arrive until Dec. 8th. So, the party had to be moved to after my Orlando trip. After talking to the three gals - Elizabeth, Rebekah, and Nicole - we settled on Dec. 14th after work.

Upon opening the packet, I was able to find out that we were getting one women's sweater, one pair of pants, and one winter accessory (scarf, hat, or gloves) for free! Pretty awesome! Night of Dec. 14th, 3 of us headed over to meet up with the other at Old Navy in Harbison.

We found a manager and informed them that we would be trying on stuff and taking pictures all around the store. She was nice and asked if we needed anything to find her. So, off we went. Here, there everywhere in the store...finding items to try on...we tossed items in our bags until they were full...and even carried more!

 After goofing around trying on the winter accessories, we headed to the dressing rooms with all our stuff to try on...had a mini fashion show..we'd all come out with an outfit on and take pics...and laugh or compliment...twirl and share. Until we picked out an outfit that we wanted to own!



With our selected outfit we went to pose with the mannequins before purchasing.

So, we had a lot of fun..and found plenty. At first we had felt there wasn't as much selection of items that we'd like or that some of us saw online, but in the end we definitely found outfits that we would wear. One thing, is that the Incrediboots were not all that to me. I was so excited to try them on, but when I did not one of the three pairs fit and they were all me I'll stick to Old Navy clothes, not their shoes.

All of the thoughts and pictures in this post are my own. The only things we received were the free items mentioned...otherwise I purchased items (a scarf, a sweater, and a pair of pants). Thank you Old Navy and Crowdtap!

ABBA Wacky Dance Party (12/4/11)

Thanks to Crowdtap and Ubisoft I was able to have an ABBA Wacky Dance Party on 12/4/11. The party pack included:
  • Seven Steps to a Super 70s Party pamphlet
  • ABBA You Can Dance Wii Game
  • ABBA You Can Dance T-shirt
  • ABBA's Gold Album
The ABBA You Can Dance Party Pack.
We started out the party with appetizers and chatting it up in the kitchen. Appetizers included cheese & crackers, Swedish meatballs, peppermint cookies, vodka gummies, jell-o shots, and daiquiris.  Most had dinner before they came over, so the alcohol was there to encourage dancing! LOL.
Peppermint Cookies
Tie-dyed Jell-o Shots
Swedish Fish
70s Paperware

Vodka soaked Gummies
Swedish Meatballs
After the appetizers, we moved into the living room...where my boyfriend had set up lights on the floor to outline like a dance floor! And we had some 70's decorations (along with Christmas decorations) out. I think it looked great! I even got colored covers for the Wii controllers.
The decorations...woo!

Crash course into how the game works...and we were all set to become Dancing Queens! Just about everyone got up and danced at least once...while some danced over and over again! Everyone definitely had fun!

This game is a lot of fun and its nice that it has the musical mode! It was too hilarious sometimes...watching the screen and the dancers! One thing I do not like about the game, is that to win, you really only need to move the one hand holding the Wii controller. I think it'd be better if had to move both, and used gloves or something like in the game. It did seems girls were more inclined to do the arm and foot movements more than the guys. It has a huge variety of ABBA songs, but after so might long for variety...I guess that's why one would buy more than one of these You Can Dance games.

All images and opinions of the game are my own! I only received the party pack from Crowdtap and no compensation for my opinions.
Pete (my bf) and I.
