Lighten Up!

I woke up on Thursday morning to a strange email, telling me that my order from a company I’d never heard of would be arriving at my old work address between 10.56 and 11.56. Oddly specific, and a bit odd that something would be going to somewhere I haven’t been in 3 months. I contacted the company to arrange redelivery to my home, and waited, not so patiently, as my fellow Angels all tweeted and blogged about the surprise box that had appeared. (Thankfully I managed to get it sorted out quickly, and the box arrived a few hours ago. The delivery driver told me the box was a lot lighter than it looked!)

I opened the box and a balloon floated out, attached to a bottle of the new Lusciously Light Frizz Miracle conditioner.

So if you’ve been a regular reader, you’ll probably know that I’ve been doing this stuff with Aussie for a while now (about 18 months? Whoa!), and if you look at the Aussie Angel category on my blog, you’ll be able to see the brilliant events I’ve been do and fun tasks that we’ve been set to do with the brand. This is the start of a new “season” of fun with Aussie, and you now have a chance to join in!

You’ll need to answer the following question on your own blog, then tweet the link to @yummyhair (who you’re probably following anyway, right? If you’re a blogger not already on Twitter, where have you been?)

“Put a spring in your spring! Tell us, how would you lighten up your life? #AussieLight”

10 people will be chosen to join the rest of us Angels by the Uncover Aussie team, based on the most creative responses that reflects the Aussie spirit – you can write, take photos, make a vlog, paint your face – whatever you think fits! You’ve got until midnight on Sunday 20th March 2011 to get your link over to @yummyhair.

For full T’s & C’s and more info on whats needed in your post, hop (sorry, kangaroo pun necessary) over to UncoverAussie. Good luck!

(Oh, and just because I had a giant purple bow in my hands…

…no dogs were harmed in the taking of this photo, just slightly annoyed. Oh dear, I really am becoming a crazy dog lady.)

    Oh, glad you eventually got the package! Cute dog! I did exactly the same with the cat and the bow – she certainly wasn’t impressed. Haha!

    Awww your dog looks so cute under that big purple ribbon. I must confess mine kinda went in the bin but of course the balloon is still floating happily in my room! I loved this surprise, though my mum isn’t that happy about the silver stars that are still on the carpet!

    Just the idea of a balloon floating up from a box fills me with happy thoughts – makes me think of the part in Up when all the balloons burst from the roof of his house and take him up into the sky… Joy!

    Thanks for following me, and I look forward to reading more of your posts ^-^
