Yes, this actually is my job! =)

Other than running my Etsy shop, I do promotional work for 3 other companies. I really love it because it never feels like work, it's always something new (perfect for my ADD haha) and I can pick and choose what I want to work. Plus I meet a lot of really cool and interesting people along the way. My most recent promo gig was working the LRA (Louisiana Restaurant Association) convention in New Orleans this past weekend. 

I was working for Tony Chachare's for the promo which is a very popular if not the most popular seasoning in Louisiana. They put out a bloody mary mix recently so I was sampling it out.

The convention had a parade to start the show...only in New Orleans lol. There's seriously a parade every other weekend down here. 

This is what I was talking about when I said interesting people.  This guy had a tattoo of Godzilla on his back, holding shrimp baskets and shooting fire at the other shrimp boats lol! I think it's safe to assume that no one else has that tattoo!
This is who I was working work, we hit it as soon as we met and had way too much fun taking these pics. I think we had the giggles due to all the, "sampling" we were doing. We would have to make new batches of mix every so often (with vodka) and we would sample it each time, probably sampled more than we needed to, but hey, it was for quality control purposes! 
The convention was 3 days long and I only found out on day 2 that she's the heiress to Tony Chachere's (great granddaughter). I never would have guessed since she was so sweet and down to earth. So yeah, it's kinda like I met someone famous! =D

All in all, the convention was so much fun! There's always perks that go along with promotional work. Besides meeting a bunch of awesome people, I was able to take home 5 bottles of alcohol ( I could have taken more more, but that's all I could hold) and I made tips (yay!!)
