The reason I choose to ask Zaggora was because, as I'm sure my regular readers will know, I am not the slimmest mummy in the village but I am trying very hard, with the help of Liska's MoMenTum group, to lose weight and tone up. Fellow MoMenTum member, Karen (I would like to be a yummy mummy), put me in touch with this company who are launching these revolutionary exercise shorts, HotPants, which can help you to drop 2 dress sizes in 2 weeks. You wear them when you exercise and they literally sweat the fat out of you. You can wear them as shorts or under your clothes or even to bed. I wrote about my love for them the other day as part of my MoMenTum post. When I was emailing the company about reviewing the HotPants I found that they were very friendly and approachable. So I thought, why the hell not drop them an email and offer them some good blog publicity.
I truly believe that blog advertising works because I often buy products after reading a blog review or reading about a product that is working for someone else. I believed that I could offer Zaggora's HotPants some well deserved publicity for what I hope will be the remedy for my thunderous thighs.
"Why do you need sponsorship and what took you so long to ask for it?" I hear you ask.
Well, my plan was to take the night bus from Glasgow to London, stay the day in London and get the night bus back. However, I really didn't feel like it was a good idea to be alone, in London, in a bus station at midnight. The train would be a better option or staying over on the Saturday night but I couldn't afford it. I'm still not back at work and I'm counting pennies so that the pounds don't bankrupt me. In the end I worked out the best option was the bus after all but I would need to stay in a hotel on the Saturday. I didn't originally ask for sponsorship as my blog was only in it's infancy when I heard about Cybermummy but it's still going strong and gaining in followers every month so I feel I can reach a wider audience now.
Like a knight in shining armour, 5 minutes after sending off the desperate email for help, my prayers were answered. I will be going to the ball but I won't be wearing a ball gown. I will be wearing HotPants!
and I am staying here, courtesy of Zaggora, thanks guys!
Can't wait until June 25th now! I don't even have to think about what to wear because I will be wearing a lovely HotPants t-shirt!
