G+ Hangout and Bath Bomb Swap

Do you remember our blog post from last week announcing our first ever G+ Hangout? It happened and it was a blast! We were able to LIVE stream for the very first time in Bramble Berry history. As with all technology, nothing ever seems to go perfectly the first time around. We had some technical difficulties that forced us to start a little late (eeps). Our sound system decided to crash right before we went live (literally, 3 minutes before show time). Happily, the team bounced back and made a quick recovery using two step stools and our company Chromebooks to make the hangout happen (go Brambleberrians and three cheers for Google Chromebooks)!

Here I am “hanging out” and sniffing yummy bath bombs from the swap. Ahem…live!

I had the best time chatting with Bramble Berry customers (don’t worry, I’ll be able to read your questions at the next G+ hangout) and checking out the drool-worthy bath bombs from the Bath Bomb Swap. We even had a baby chatting with us! Dana, from Dana Handmade LLC, had her sweet baby girl who couldn’t take her eyes off the screen (pssst: I was pretty mesmerized by the sweet baby too – right back atcha’ little one).

And a special thanks to all that joined the Bramble Berry’s first bath bomb swap. It went well for our first time and I hope we’re able to do another one in the future – with zero technical difficulties this time. We shipped all swap boxes last Friday so many of you should be receiving your goodies this week. Yippy!

PS: I loved the Tropical Punch FizzyCupcake (not pictured) from Bubbles Bath Boutique too. Whoever gets that one in their package is super lucky.
