Dove Ice Cream Bars. Yacht. San Diego. Party. Would you go?
I did. I'm so glad I did too. It was a great party, very mellow and low pressure. Sometimes the private parties at BlogHer can get a bit overwhelming with all the sponsors making sure you see their product. The Dove Yacht was the exact opposite, there was food, drinks, 39 other women and the Dove PR team. There was no pressure, no eat our ice cream(dang! actually there was ice cream but no pressure to. eat. the ice. cream.), no review our product(double dang!! I'm AVAILABLE!!) It was just a party with friends on a boat with two hunky man/boys to do our bidding. When it got chilly the two hunky man/boys brought each of us a pashmina to wear, in rich chocolaty brown and brought us ice cream bars to nibble on. Then we sailed for an hour, went (I swear!) right under the bow of an aircraft carrier, tooled around and then stopped to watch a massive fireworks display. Huzzah. Best. PR. Party Ever.
I went to several other low key non pushy parties too, in fact I seemed to specialize in them this year. I love that. So I hit the super quiet, uber mellow Stonyfield party in their hotel room to snack on some delish, new to the market, treats. So nice to just slip in, say hi, enjoy the view and meet the wonderful folks of Stonyfield yogurt. They even said I smelled great, probably my deodorant working over time to mask my fear of strangers, my shyness and the fear of going some place alone.
I also went to an AMAZING rooftop party for Softcup, it's a ladies product you use instead of tampons or pads. The party was awesome, quiet rooftop, nice music, luscious drinks, sun blazing into sunset mode. I'm now a Softcup girl and I'll never go back, funny thing is I never even KNEW about the product before BlogHer 11 and now I'm totally a new woman over here. Seriously if you ever get tired of leaks, worrying and everything else give Softcups a shot. You will not regret it.
and of course sparkle spider was in attendance at all 3 parties
Peace and Love--
