Getting Ready for a Great Year!

Avery and Katherine headed over to Columbus, Ohio, July 31- August 2, for Brand Training where the Home Office of Victoria’s Secret PINK is located. They had a great time learning the ins and outs of being Campus Reps and can’t wait to put on events for FSU this year. They enjoyed all the activities planned and meeting Campus Reps from 74 other schools around the country.

July 31-

Avery and Katherine arrived at Renaissance Hotel in Downtown Columbus. There they met the other Campus Reps and learned about the brand.

After settling in, PINK threw a great party on the rooftop for the Campus Reps. There were vending machines and claw machines filled with goodies, a DJ, bra and panty cookies, and blowup PINK letters!

Avery and Katherine had a really early morning. They woke up and did sunrise yoga on the rooftop of the hotel. Unfortunately they got rained on and had to move to a room inside. Yoga was the perfect start to a really great day!

After a day of meetings, all of the Campus Reps went to Easton for a Shopping Night. First stop was Cooper’s Hawk for a delicious dinner.

Let the 2013 Collegiate Showdown Begin!

cs dates

So… what can I win?

Your campus could win the right to host PINK’s most popular party of the year, and of course obvious bragging rights.

Let’s talk strategy.

The Showdown starts with the 56 PINK Collegiate schools, then it’s up to you to vote, rally and campaign to make sure your college gets into the number one spot!

GO NOLES!

Gimme specifics – I can handle it.

You can vote once per day, per round. The rounds change over at 12 noon EST – yes, technically you could vote once before noon and once after noon that day. To really put the pressure on, the rounds are shorter than last year, so you’ll need to pay more attention than ever before.

Breaking a sweat yet?

Get this: this year, we’re introducing epic new social challenges for the Fab Four. What are they? You’ll just have to wait and see. But we will say: be on your game.

V-Day with PINK!

There’s nothing more similar to PINK than Valentine’s Day! With this holiday quickly approaching there’s no present better than something PINK for your sister, mom, friends or YOURSELF!

A BRALETTE or MINI CHEEKSTER is the perfect gift. Check out these easy PINK inspired DIY presents to go along with your PINK Valentine’s Day presents.

PINK-tine Card

What you need:

  • Construction paper
  • Sponge
  • Gel Pen or Marker (I used a white gel pen found at Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, etc)
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Scissors

How to make:

  1. Fold your piece of construction paper in half and cut it to the length you want it.
  2. Take a new sponge and outline a pattern. I made an outline of a bralette. Cut out the pattern.
  3. Figure out what you want your card to say. Idea: Bralettes be Valentines! OR Will you be my PINK valentine? Write your message on the folded construction paper. Make sure to leave room for the sponge stamp!
  4. Dip your stamp into the acrylic paint and carefully stamp it where you want on your card.
  5. Add any other decorations to your card and sign a cute message on the inside!

PINK V-day Glass

What you need

  • One or more glass cups (depending how many you want to make)
  • Glass paint marker (Craft stores have them $2)
  • Oven 375 degrees

How to make:

  1. Grab your cup and markers. The marker will need to be shaken and press the tip to make the ink come out
  2. When the ink is ready, begin decorating your glass with your markers.
  3. When your masterpiece is done, let dry for four hours.
  4. After ink has dried, heat oven to 375 and put your glasses in BEFORE oven is preheated. Glasses need to be in oven for 40 minutes.
  5. When the timer is done…WAH LAH your glasses are ready to come out! Be careful glasses will be hot!

  • Sugar cookie dough (premade or homemade)
  • Food coloring
  • HEART cookie cutter
  • Icing to write on cookies
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Flour
  • Oven
  • Rolling pin

How to make:

  1. Preheat oven to 350. On a clean surface, sprinkle flour on surface so cookie dough will not stick. Drip a few drops of food coloring on the dough and begin kneading to mix the color into the dough
  2. When your dough is color you want it to be, take your rolling pin and roll dough flat. Grab your heart cookie cutter and cut out your cookies. Place them on your cookie sheet.
  3. After your hearts are all cut out and oven is preheated, cook cookies for 10-12 minutes.
  4. Let Cool.
