This past week I was one of the few lucky bloggers/ladies invited over to Michelle's (aka All Lacquered Up) house for The Annual ALU Cleveland Blogger Charity Sale. A great group of ladies were in the house. There was was wine. There was beer. There were munchies. There were BEAUTY PRODUCTS!!! (Also there was a little peak in to where the magic happens otherwise know as ALU's headquarters--I am so mad I forgot to check in on FourSquare. And by sneak peak, I mean standing at the doorway to her office and drooling.)
After some chatting (which included me talking about swamp ass. Yep, I am classy!) and some serious snacking and some drinking, we all headed downstairs to shop, shop, shop. You can check out a few of the other ladies' loot on their blogs----Alana at The Dawg's Dish, Alexa at Cleveland's A Plum, Allison at Green Dog Wine, Heather at Mile 26 and More. The other fabulous ladies in attendance were: Allison at Confessions of a Cohabitant, Charity at i heart CLEVELAND, Kelly at Sensory Overload, Michelle at Cleveland Foodie, Molly at Food N Such, Joceyln from twitter (@Legalesque) and a few more of Michelle's friends.
All together the sale raised $1085. And everything was a steal, so that proves we all bought a lot of stuff! I couldn't believe how much product there was-I still can't. And I heard a few "want to trade blogs" comments (OK, one of those comments might have come out of my mouth but I wasn't the only one). Because really, who doesn't want makeup/skincare/haircare/nail polish/fragrance mailed to them on a regular basis?
It was a really great night for a great cause that I was excited to be a part of. And, I am ready for next year!
Speaking of snacking---Heather seriously needs to post her recipe for her pumpkin butterscotch cookies. They were fluffy and delicious!
