SWAGG VIP Lounge at the Mercedes-Benz Bridgehampton Polo Challenge

Last Saturday, August 28th, I had the opportunity to participate in a fun adventure to the SWAGG VIP Lounge at the Mercedes-Benz Bridgehampton Polo Challenge, with a group of VIP media attendees.

Since it's about a 2-hour drive up to the Hamptons (my first trip there!), we traveled via the #swaggHamptons luxury party bus, where we were privy to mimosas, champagne, wine, beer - you name it, plus muffins, croissants, bagels, sandwiches and chocolate covered pineapples and strawberries. It was so much fun getting to know everyone, as we were busy Twittering and Facebooking the whole way there.

The trip was sponsored by SWAGG and
Sarah Evans, SWAGG correspondent and owner of Sevans Strategy, a public relations and new media consultancy. SWAGG is a mobile app launching this fall, allowing consumers to purchase, personalize and exchange gift cards directly from a mobile device.

At the SWAGG VIP Lounge we enjoyed cocktails and previewed the SWAGG application, while DJ Solange Knowles mixed up the music.

Special guests included Dwayne Wade, Gabrielle Union, Jeff Gordon, Alex McCord, and Wilmer Valderama.

I was having such a good time, that before I knew it, the afternoon was over! The bus ride back took about two and a half hours, but we sure made the best of it with more champagne, wine, beer, shots (not for me!) and more sandwiches, plus cupcakes, cookies and brownies.

I am glad I was able to make it for the closing weekend, and definitely look forward to attending next summer! Thank you to SWAGG and Sarah Evans for having me on this trip! Day getaways are so much fun! I look forward to the SWAGG app launch this fall!
