So at home parties seem to have hit the ground running.
There are parties for food, make-up, jewelry, adult enjoyment, candles – if you can think of it, there’s a party for it. These are great option for those who love to make a little extra cash and love playing hostess to a variety of social situations.
For me, the frugal shopper (or rather the eternal student budget shopper), I just see them as slightly overpriced pretty things. But I go to support my friends and family. You need numbers; I fill a seat.
It was no different a week and a half ago when I was asked by my future sister in law to attend her South Hill party. I won’t lie; I had no intention of buying anything. I even took Vic along, figuring I’d be in and out in an hour or so. Not so much. I walked in to displays covering the counters and tables. So many pretty pieces to look at. I dove right in.
I should mention the chocolate almonds – she snagged me with placing a bowl just beside my seat which kept getting magically filled by the way.
Before I knew it I had several pieces compiled in front of me. You see South Hill isn’t the costume jewelry I thought I was about to browse. It’s a company that sells customized pieces that you compile yourself. You can start with the basics and build a little or a lot. They allow you to continue adding charms and various accessories whenever you want. The best thing? It’s tailored to my taste. You choose everything. You can choose pieces in memory of a loved one; pieces that represent your tastes, interests and passions; pieces that have a little of both.
It’s a little like the Pandora/Camilia charm bracelets, but not. It’s hard to explain really. Something you really have to take a look at yourself. And please, the pictures do it no justice at all! If you get the chance to attend a South Hill party; go! You’re never made to purchase anything, but if you’re anything like me – you won’t be able to resist!
This is my package that just arrived – I went ahead and placed an order to help Santa Vic so I’m not allowed to share what’s inside yet, but even the packaging is pretty, don’t ya think?
