Share, Love, Celebrate the Best of @PGeveryday with @SheSpeaksUp @TerrenceJ and @Ascending1 #PGmostloved #spon



On March 26th I shared a winner announcement and RSVP information for a special twitter party, in case you missed the original post you can just click here and check it out! I was so happy to see that so many of my butterflies participated in the party! I was live tweeting from New York City with the @SheSpeaksUp team with a special celebrity guest who was also the 'Master of Ceremonies' for the fun that was happening at the live event as well as during the Twitter Party itself, Terrence Jenkins from E! News (who goes by @TerrenceJ on twitter!). Terrence shared his enthusiasm for P&G as well as personal stories and jokes, as well photo-bombing a few attendees and taking pictures with everyone.

Household name Procter & Gamble (P&G) is celebrating the hundreds of awards that their brands have received from leading magazines, some of the brands being celebrated include: CoverGirl®, Olay®, Pantene®, Venus®, Gillette® Bounty®, Cascade®, Charmin®, Dawn®, Febreze®, Swiffer® and Tide®.

I thought I'd share a behind the scenes in pictures of what the event was like:

We started out by grabbing a signature mocktail called the 'Best-ini' which consisted of pineapple, sparkling white grape juice and garnished with 24K Gold!

And there was also some eats to go along with the Mocktails!

After grabbing a quick bite it was time to check out the different stations, this was the first one:

Bun Updo Instructions
Instructions on how to make bun updo using a donut hole (hair tool, not a real donut!)


How to make an updo with a donut hole instructions:

(1) Make a ponytail as high or low as desired

(2) Pull pony tail through the donut hole

(3) Wrap excess hair around the donut making sure the donut is fully covered

(4) Secure with Bobby Pins

Tips: Better with day old hair. For Fullness and texture, tease hair before wrapping around the donut. Here are the tools use:

Mirror, Brush, comb, Donut Holes for hair, ponytail holders, bobby pins

Part of great skincare is keeping certain parts smooth and hairfree, and keeping armpits and legs soft and smooth with Gillette Venus razors for women makes it easy!

This of course was my favorite display station, "Let Your Heart Flutter' was such a cheery and creative display using CoverGirl®mascaras as the sunflower on the lower left and those butterflies were actually eyeliners from CoverGirl®

After checking out all the stations there was time to grab another signature mocktail and some eats and mix and mingle, and then there was a raffle, Master of Ceremonies, Terrence Jenkins from E! Online got ready to announce the winner:

When he went to draw the winner's name, this little cutie stepped up to help draw the winner:

She's definitely a little emcee in the making, everyone just couldn't help but smile! Lastly the winner claims his prize:

The raffle winner was totally surprised! I got this shot in action so my apologies for the slight blur, but I will admit the three above shots came out pretty good for it being with the iPod instead of a real camera!

This was the most unique 'Make Your Own Swag Bag' event that I have ever attended! We got to visit with each station and learn what was new, and take the products that we liked best! Pretty Cool! Here is a picture of me and mama butterfly holding up our P&G Treasures:

We participated in the #PGmostloved twitter party with a ton of great bloggers, the team at She Speaks and Special Guest Terrence 'J' Jenkins of E! News.

My Take:

The Team at She Speaks really knows how to treat their bloggers! They provided us with roundtrip carservice to and from the Tweet Up which was such a thoughtful touch, and I thought the stations were very creative and allowing us to custom design our own swag bags was also a very neat touch! If only all Twitter Parties were this carefully crafted! I normally host twitter parties from my own computer by myself so participating in an actual live 'tweet up' twitter party was super fun and WAY more interactive!
