Who doesn't go gaga over the cute little blue Smurfs?! We were thrilled to have The Smurfs 2 part of our party, along with Ubisoft. If you hit up the party last week, you were able to demo the game, and may have even gone home with something fun in your gift bags.
Lots of fun happening at the party. Big thanks to Ubisoft for sponsoring the party! Here's a little more about the game and a trailer to see what the fun is all about!
Ubisoft® has announced The Smurfs™ 2, the video game based on the Columbia Pictures’ and Sony Pictures Animation’s film, is now available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3, computer entertainment system, Wii™ and Wii U™. A version developed specifically for the Nintendo DSTM, consisting in an interactive storytelling book and collection of mini-games, is now available.
The Smurfs 2 video game is a combination of action-adventure and platform gaming across over 30 levels in 6 environments. The player embodies one of the nine Smurfs featured in the movie including Jokey Smurf, Hefty or Brainy Smurf in an adventure that will transport them first to the main locations visible in the film such as Paris and the Enchanted Forest. The players will then continue their journey through the discovery of environments exclusive to the video game such as the Spooky Woods, Arctic Tundra and the Lava Jungle. The full adventure is playable cooperatively with up to 4 players (5 players on Wii U operating as Clockwork Smurf).
Players will meet and collect another 20 different Smurfs friends through the game and use them to populate the Smurfs Village and also to defeat foes, facing against 12 different types of enemies and 6 bosses during the campaign including the notorious Azrael and Gargamel, and newcomers such as the Naughties.
Our family has already been playing and it's a household hit! We know it will be at your home too. I promise, you won't be "grumpy" about it!!
You guys. YOU GUYS! We have some seriously exciting SocialLuxe Lounge news! In case you missed the giveaway announcement at the big party last week in Chicago, or maybe you haven't had a chance to peek at your swag bag yet, but one of our sponsors from SocialLuxe is giving away veneers to one of our attendees.
That's only a TWELVE THOUSAND DOLLAR value. Not such a biggie, right? Especially if you've been wishing, and hoping, and praying for some new teeth in your life. BIGGIE. Total biggie!
Denmat the company that makes Lumineers thin tooth veneers wants to give one of you a new smile. DUDE.
Basically, Lumineers are super thin transparent veneers that reshape and whiten teeth in just two office visits that are an hour or less. So if you've been looking into regular veneers you know the dentist basically drills your teeth to bits before capping what's left with a veneer. Lumineers keeps your teeth intact (hooray!) so you end up looking like a more natural, amazing version of yourself with amazing looking teeth.
ONLY for SocialLuxe Lounge attendees, Lumineers s giving away one Smile Makeover (up to $12,000)!
Write a blog post on how you'd benefit from a new smile transformation
Submit the link to the email address provided on the pamphlet in your SocialLuxe Lounge swag bag where you can see cool before/after photos of a Lumineers smile makeover, see more details about the contest.
Deadline to Submit entry post is Monday August 12th, so get cracking!
Each year we rely on the help of our volunteers! We can't say enough to how amazing our group of helpers was this year, lead by the ever amazing Rachel! Here are a few pics and links to showcase their fabulousness!
We are thrilled to be partnered up with the ever amazing Cottonelle for this year's Socialluxe Lounge! Wahoo!
Not only will they be helping primp and pamper us at the party, yes- we have nails, henna, make up, etc., they will also be keeping us clean and fresh in the bathroom too!
I know, I know, talking about bathroom habits can be embarrassing. But we all go through the motions, so let's get real for a minute.
Cottonelle is helping us think about a few things:
You may be missing out on a better way to get clean than simply using dry toilet paper alone.
Cottonelle Toilet Paper and Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths are designed to work together for a clean, fresh feeling throughout the day.
Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths are now available in a sleek, new dispenser - making it easier to have wipes within reach and for everyone to enjoy the clean and fresh feeling of the Cottonelle Care routine.
What is not to love about all of the above?! I like a clean and fresh feeling! Don't you?
As we've partnered with Cottonelle, bloggers and party goers of the SocialLuxe Lounge will be receiving their own package of amazing clean and fresh to their home before the party. Test it, try it, and come to the party to shout all about it. We know you're going to love it. Cottonelle, our tushies thank you!
What do you think? Are you all about clean and fresh too?
Can you say- fabulous bloggers?! Yes, we have our VIP academy ready to roll for this year's Clean and Fresh SocialLuxe Lounge!
Just like years past, we've got some amazing bloggers ready to help us out again with this year's BlogLuxe awards. You'll be seeing them all on stage announcing our winners at the party on July 25th. We love to celebrate our blogging community!
