I'm A Santarina!

This year, The Body Shop theme is Joy to the World.The Body Shop products are ethical and contribute to Community Fair Trade projects. So when you think of Body Shop, you know that not only does using their indulgent and luxurious products bring joy to the user, but because of Fair Trade and other community conscious steps which the Body Shop undertakes in producing their products, the farmers who produce the materials to make these wonderful products are not exploited.

Last Saturday, I was a Santarina for The Body Shop's Give The Gift Of Joy campaign. That's me, Danielle and Shay in our costumes, with baskets of lovely product samples from the Body Shop. We did product demontrations of the Cranberry Body Butter, Cranberry Shimmer Lotion and Cranberry Handcream. We gave out thousands of vials of Dreams Unlimited Perfume as well as the Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter sachets.
In Bugis at about 5pm, passerbys were surprised with a flash mob that sang Joy to the World. Well done on the element of surprise. IT certainly did bring a smile to many faces, enhancing the spirit of Christmas in all of us… :)
At the end of the night, exhausted but still joyful... here's the whole gang... Santarinas, Bianca, and the walking ads crew.
Catch Jamie, Danielle and myself on the - 18th, 19th, 22nd and 23rd December, from 5pm - 8pm along Orchard Road. Loads more goodies in store for you!

    U might want to consider letting your hair down instead of braiding your hair. When you got thin/fine hair, braiding looks like 2 long thin strips.

    Just an honest comment from your reader. No offence.

    You are already 30 years old, why do you accept those event jobs as "event gals" that those teenagers and school gals are doing? I mean, they are doing for extra pocket money, but why would you want to when you are 30 years old? just asking, hope you dont mind.

  8. mmm.. a number of reasons...

    - it's fun
    - it's temporary ( I hate doing the same thing day in day out)
    - i don't get paid the same as those teenage 'event gals' you're talking about.

    That said, I'm still worth their every penny (!!!), as the teenage event girls won't give it exposure, might not know enough when it comes down to explaining stuff abt the body shop, it's concept, fair trade programmes, the products, etc.
