Friday Show and Tell: SocialLuxe Lounge!

This week’s Show and Tell is all about the 2013 Clean & Fresh SocialLuxe Lounge for two reasons:

  1. It took over my life the last few weeks, so there is little else to share!
  2. The party was WONDERFUL and I want to show it off!

First off, since I like to share music with you in these weekly posts, be sure to check out the SocialLuxe party playlist for this year. It’s pretty darn good, if I do say so myself.

This is the fourth SocialLuxe Lounge party that Marie, Allison and I have thrown together. I have to say, we’re getting pretty good at this. Every year we say it’s the last one because it just about kills us, and ever year we do it again. And ever year when I look around the room and see what we’ve pulled together, I have to admit it is pretty awesome and it was {maybe} worth all the work!

This year Cottonelle was our title sponsor and they were wonderful! You can read more about their awesomeness here.

Ubisoft was also a sponsor and provided gaming fun for the party! They were also wonderful to work with and I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Just Dance Kids game this fall!


ProFlowers once again provided the flowers for our party and the flowers were, once again, BEAUTIFUL. This year I had a host of volunteers there to help me assemble the bouquets and we had a great time!

 ONE was also at the party to meet with party attendees. I love doing anything I can to support them, so I’m glad we could get them involved with the party! If you want even more music to listen to, be sure to check out ONE’s agit8 campaign. Cool stuff!

As always, we had massage, henna, nails, hair and makeup for everyone at the party to partake of. I told the massage therapist that I was going to take her home in my pocket. For some reason she is still in Chicago.




Sonnet James provided me with my dress for the party (see photo below!). It was super cute and I got tons of compliments. They funded a Kickstarter campaign that completed yesterday, so right now you can pre-order dresses. Check them out here!

Our gift bags were filled to the brim with goodies. I’m sure I’ll be sharing some of those goodies with you over the coming weeks and months!

And, as usual, the best part for me was working with Allison and Marie. The friendships I’ve forged with these two women organizing this party year after year are priceless.

Yay, SocialLuxe! You were great and I’m glad you’re over! Time to enjoy the rest of summer! PHEW.

    Janey May! I loved planning and partying with you for SLL!! Great wrap up. #jazzhands

  2. I had such a great time at the party – you all did an amazing job organizing and pulling it all off. This was my first trip to a conference like this and I went alone, which is how I arrived at the party. Found most everyone was super-nice and quickly found people to chat, relax, and eat delicious macaroons with! I greatly appreciate the invitation and hope to see you all again next year 🙂
