Have you ever been invited to a party where the entire purpose of the event was for the host to sell you something you didn't want? I don't know if this trend is sweeping the country or only popular with the suburban crowd of Southern Cal. In the last year, I've been invited to at least twenty little get togethers (disguised as parties) that include vendors. I've been pitched everything from lipstick that lasts all day (but burns the heck out of your lips!) to housewares (I'll never use) & clothing (that's not my style). This may be the modern version of a Tupperware party, but I'M GOING ON STRIKE. I love my friends and I'm a big fan of girls night out. I'd love to go out for dinner and a movie or come over and hang out (I'll even bring the wine), but please don't try to sell me anything!
P.S. Girl Scouts are still welcome. We'll take 10 boxes of Thin Mints.
