Yesterday we went to a Blogger event that I was invited to at Kittery Premium Outlets in Kittery, Maine. We met up with a lady named Kathy, who is the Director of Marketing for the Kittery outlets. She was so nice & friendly. There were 4 of us bloggers, plus my hubby & my daughter & another blogger brought her hubby. Justine from Sobeanie, Leslie from OneBrassFox & Emily from UNH Her Campus.
First we went to Starbucks & tried some samples. We got to try a seasonal drink & treat.
Then we went on to Yankee Candle & got gift bags with a Mini jar candle, Balsam & Cedar & a Car Jar air freshener in the same scent.
Next was J Crew, it's all set up & looking all cozy for Christmas. I've never been in that store before.
Then Banana Republic. The girl that was hosting in that store was so nice & bubbly. She made us all smile. I loved this poncho that they had there.
We went to Lindt chocolates.
They have a hot chocolate/drink bar. You can add different candies on top. They change it up for the seasons. We tried a yummy caramel truffle hot chocolate. They give out samples as you walk in.
We went to Sunglass hut & they did a product demo on "How to pick out a pair of sunglasses for someone as a gift".
Tara loved these purple sunnies.
Then to Hannah Andersson to get International sizing information. They measure in centimeters. They have organic comfy clothing for children. Babies to teens.
They provided us with a $100 Simon gift card & a $50 Columbia sports gift card. We got a bunch of things with the gift cards. Anthony picked out some Christmas gifts for himself. He got some really nice gloves at Columbia for when he's outside snow blowing our driveway. He also got a shirt for work at J Crew.
I got a vest from Banana Republic & a shirt from American Eagle.
Tara got an awesome cozy blanket from Columbia & a few bouncy balls from Old Navy.
These are all the freebies that we got below.
We had such a great time shopping & spending time together as a family.
