If you are saying “Huh?”, you are at the same point I was just last week. You see, I got invited to a “My Favorite Things” party & I was very confused. I’d never heard of such a thing. Soon the confusion wore off and I made the jump to intrigued.
My friend, Brooke, hosted. She quickly explained that everyone who attended picked a “favorite thing” valued between $7 and $10. Everyone was to bring 5 of their favorite things. When we got to the party, each person wrote their name on 5 little slips of paper and put them in a bowl. After everyone arrived, we picked 5 slips from the bowl ensuring that we didn’t get our own name or any duplicates. Then we went around the room and each person stood up, showed the “favorite thing” that they brought, explained why they picked it and gave one to each of the people whose names were on the slips of paper they drew. Cool, huh? You continue around the room until everyone has 5 new favorite things to take home and try. I think there is also an option for trading but we didn’t really do that at the party I attended.
Now that I’ve explained the concept (which I think is awesome-sauce)….on to the cool stuff! For my favorite thing, I picked Lash Blast mascara. It works really well and I got a great deal on a double pack for $8.99 (regularly $16.99). Great mascara and 2 tubes for the price of one….sweet!
In exchange, I recieved:
I got at least 2 things that I had never seen before/never tried. For me, that is a win. In fact, I love the Thieves Cleaner so much that I think I’m going to order some for myself (it smells so good, cleans well & it’s natural).
Oh and I almost forgot to mention…there were prizes. I won this beautiful flower bracelet from Coco Rose Couture. Isn’t it pretty?!?!
Now that I know a great new party to host, I just have to figure which of my friends to spring it on first. *rubs hands together in delight*
