We've officially been in our new house for a whopping two weeks. In the beginning, I always wanted to have a few friends over to see the house in it's "before" stage because we haven't really done anything to it yet.
The blog gods somehow heard me and I was offered a red carpet party courtesy of Dove. Yes, the same Dove is the deodorant and does the amazing real beauty campaign.
(It's about time someone did that.)
To me, it was a no brainer.
As I was contacting friends to come over, I quickly found selecting a date became an issue. People couldn't commit to this day, then I was out of town, blah blah, you get where I'm going.
When we finally could pick a date, my friends all eagerly committed once they heard it was Dove.
Sample conversation with just about everyone:
Me: "Hi, so I've decided on this day to have you guys over to see my new house. I'll have appetizers and wine. What do you think?"
Friend: "Sure, I guess I'll come but I might be late."
Me: "OK, well as a part of the party, you will get a free stick of Dove deodorant and a bead necklace."
Friend: Now very interested, "Wait, did you say Dove?"
Me: Not thinking THAT would coerce my friends to come over, "Yes, I have a stick for everyone and a necklace."
Friend: "I use Dove, what scent is it? Is it cucumber & green tea? That's my favorite. I only use Dove."
Me: "Ummm. I don't know. I don't remember."
Friend: "Well, can you find out, that kind of determines if I come."

Well, someone had to apply it.
Now, it's your turn. I have five sticks of Ultimate Visibly Smooth deodorant in Nature Fresh to giveaway to you. Just leave a comment by April 2, but, you could always share an embarrassing sweating moment as well.
Disclosure: Dove provided all necessities for this party including product and necklaces as gifts to my guests.
