This is a sponsored post from One2One Network and Yappem. All opinions stated are my own. As a mom, I am approached constantly by my family for various reasons. The kids will come to me for help with schoolwork, to ask if I can make something for the bake sale or advice on handling a problem at school. My husband will come to me for my opinion on a situation at work, to ask me to make his favorite meal AGAIN, or to ask me to help choose the right shirt for his company dinner. When I need advice on something, it is usually on making a purchase or trying to find information on a particular company or brand. When I need advice, I usually turn to my friends, most of whom are also moms, to see what they suggest. Although I appreciate their input, they do not always have knowledge or information on the company or brand I am researching.

Foodie

However you can find such info from the Yappem community, where you can interact with others about companies, brands, and products. You can also give your own opinion and get rewarded. If you have not heard about Yappem, it is a clever, fun, active and informational social platform which is more like a group of friends sharing thoughts and opinions. With Yappem, you can join communities and go on missions to earn Yappem coins. These coins can be traded in for gift cards to some of your favorite stores like Amazon, Target and Walmart. Two missions I recently completed was to comment on a recent dining experience I had as well as a video game I recently purchased. Both of the missions earned me 100 coins each and I am working on earning enough coins for a Target and Amazon gift card to use as stocking stuffers for Christmas.

Water Fountains

Recently I attending a conference in Chicago and was invited to attend The Awesome Party hosted by Yappem. The party was held at the gorgeous Crystal Gardens at the Navy Pier. From the moment we were greeted by the super friendly representatives at the front table, to the huge drawing at the end of the evening, it was non stop fun.

Candy

There was a gourmet cotton candy area, a candy table where you could make your own treat bags, or a table with delicious and refreshing drinks. The highlight of the evening was the drawing of the raffle tickets where such items as a pair of Manolo Blahnik pumps, a Kate Spade Bag and a gorgeous Michael Kors bag.

Grand Prize Winner

The 2 Grand Prizes of a $12,000 shopping spree were awarded at the very end and boy was that exciting!  The party was exactly what I would envision the online community to look like if it were real! What a great night by a great company who has offered a service that has been needed for a long time. Thank you Yappem and The Awesome Party!
