Now, onto the GIVEAWAY!
I am so excited to share this with you all! Recently I was chosen by to be a hostess for their Redbook Happy Hour House Party. If you aren't familiar with House Party, I urge you to head over to their website and check them out! It is such an awesome program! Here's a little bit about House Party from their website:
"House Party makes it easy to have a party in your own home and get exclusive access to awesome products for you and your friends. We provide the fun, you provide food, your friends and feedback and promise to have an amazing time.
Our parties are sponsored by the brands you love. By hosting, you and your guests get to try their products and receive an incredible Party Pack chock full of goodies! You don’t pay anything or sell anything. It’s a no-pressure party. Just tell us what you and your guests think.
But it’s more than just you and your friends who are having a blast. Thousands of other hosts and guests from across the US are also having an amazing time, on the same day. Your party just went from event to epic!"

So does that sound like fun, or what? Between myself and my mother, we have been fortunate enough to host some fabulous parties, and to get some super fun loot in the process! If you haven't already, you should absolutely get in on the fun and sign up with House Party!
