What is an Arm Party?

According to Amy Evans, proprietress at Bon Lemon, “An Arm Party is an excuse to wear all of your bracelets at once!” Amy is the creative genius behind the Arm Party Challenge, a fun Facebook contest I’m participating in. (And I am planning to win!)

Amy’s advice for designing your Arm Party: “Let your personality shine through. Sparkly, fierce, delicate, or colorful.  Pile on the bracelets (you can never have too many) and go.”

It’s easy: click on this link and “like” the photo of my Tangerine Tango and Turquoise ensemble. Please vote by this Wednesday, March 28.

I’m not usually this focused on winning and promoting myself but I love creating beautiful, colorful, stylish things and sharing them with others. Plus I’m doing a bit of informal research to see just how powerful social media can be. And the $200 in Bon Lemon merchandise is also a huge motivator! Thanks in advance for your “like.” I think it would be fun to get 200 “likes,” so please spread the word!

I am having so much fun with this that I created an Arm Party board on Pinterest.

Bonne Chance!

Amy (the other one, not me!) wanted me to encourage everyone to enter the Arm Party Challenge…. Even though I am going to WIN, I’d love some good competition and mostly I’d like this promotion be a big success for Bon Lemon. You can find everything you need to know about the contest, including tips for creating your Arm Party, on Bon Lemon’s blog.  

A Bit About Bon Lemon

Amy Evans is crazy about sparkles like I am crazy about color! Her Bon Lemon online boutique and tiny shop on the West Side of Olympia (where I grew up) are filled with sparkling and colorful bobbles, jewels, handbags and scarves… and lots of cheery yellow!  Her blog is a great place to read about her POV on life, style, community, business, family, and of course sparkles, sparkles and more sparkles, including her latest post about a sparkly manicure.  I think I need to run out and get one today! I know most of you won’t make it to good old Oly for a visit, but a trip to Bon Lemon’s website is definitely worth your time. Enjoy!

So here’s to Arm Parties, sparkles and color! May the best Arm Party (mine!) win! Don’t forget to cast your vote by this Wednesday, March 28.
