This Thursday, at 2 pm EST, join us to talk all to about…
Vacationing with Kids!

Since summer is ending and “Back to School” is upon us… we thought it would be fun to look back over our summer vacations and talk about what worked and what didn’t. Share your tips and tricks for traveling with kids. And let’s have fun looking at photos and watching videos from all of our summer vacations with our kids.

You can also share stories and photos from your family vacations when you were a kid.

Let’s have fun partying and gabbing about the good, the bad and the funny of vacationing with kids.

The SnazL for the party is below… you can embed this SnazL on your own site or come back and join the fun here. We’ll be adding content to this SnazL and you can add your own photos and videos before the party starts or during the party.

Remember… You can watch and interact with the SnazL here or co-host on your own site.

If you want to co-host the event, you can simply copy the SnazL embed code into a post on your own site so that people can watch and interact on your site.

Snazl Stories Contests!

BE CROWNED A ROCKSTAR SNAZLER! Win love (on 10 different top sites), an iPod Touch, and more…

Each SnazL Stories week runs from Saturday to Friday, and during that time the 8 featured bloggers, e.l.f. Cosmetics, SnazL and Skimbaco will be keeping an eye for the Rockstar SnazLers and their best SnazL Stories.

Each week three SnazLers from the community will be chosen as the weekly Rockstar SnazLers for having the best SnazL Story, and one will be picked as a Weekly Winner, and win an iPod Touch. All three Rockstar SnazLers will be featured on 10 different top sites- the 8 featured bloggers, e.l.f. Cosmetics, SnazL AND Skimbaco Lifestyle sites!

Three Rockstar SnazLers will be picked each week until September 27th until will have 21 finalists. We will pick the winner from the 21 and announce who it is on September 30th during our live show. The winner will be flown to New York City and will get many surprises during their trip and co-host an e.l.f. Cosmetic party with Katja Presnal at Affinia Hotel on October 6th.

How will we determine the “best”? The combination of these characteristics:
1. Your community’s involvement – how many people are attending your party and the conversation.
2. Your content – how good of a collection of videos, pictures, and audio you have and how they reflect your party theme.
3. Fun factor – forget about six flags – let’s make these parties worth at least.. seven flags!
