Working the SparkleSkirt! booth and the Disneyland Half Expo

A few months ago, Miss Leah, the Queen Mum of SparkleSkirts! asked me to work with her at the SparkleSkirts! booth at the Disneyland Half Marathon Expo.  I was thrilled!  You know how much I love SparkleSkirts! and really admire Miss Leah and her company.  There are not many athletic wear companies who make sure us bigger bottomed girls have just as many choices in running wear as the skinny girls.  Miss Leah makes all of her skirts to fit all body types.  Not only do they fit every body type, they flatter every body type!  That is a big deal in my book.

I took the early shift, from 9am to 1pm.  It really did not feel that early to me though--I had already run the Car Land 5k, went back to my room and changed, and went to a character breakfast with my girlfriends.  I got to the expo about 10 minutes early, like an good and eager worker should.  The nice women guarding the door would not let me in because I did not have an exhibitor pass.  I had to call Miss Leah to meet me at the door.  Once I got there, she gave me a quick lay of the land.  By then, the expo was open and I was helping ladies find their perfect running skirts.

It was so much fun working the SparkleSkirts! booth.  We had women of all shapes and sizes stop by and try on skirts.  We had so much good stuff at the booth--my favorites were the SparkleLight skirts that you wear over shorts or capris and the SparkleTech that has build in shorts.  I loved showing off all of the SparkleTech features, like big and roomy leg pockets, no slip/anti chafe legs and the zippered waist band pocket. The time went by so quickly.  Before I know it, my 4 hours was up.

I had the best time working the SparkleSkirts! booth at the Disneyland Half Marathon.  It was so much fun representing a product that I believe in.  I hope Miss Leah asks me to work for her again really soon.

A dream is a wish...

  1. You are definitely a "Sparkle Girl" and your little job at the Expo must have been a blast. By the way, I got my first Sparkle Skirt last month and my DD and I wore our matching pink Minnie skirts at the Rock and Roll Virginia Beach!
