My First Contest! It's an UPLIFTING one!

My college roommate Olga, yes the one who did not build an ark nor did she leave New Orleans during Katrina, has a new business venture and she needs my bloggy readers help! Here's the kicker, she is going to reward you for your creativity. WOO HOO, my first contest.

First, let me tell you that Olga is the Queen of Lingerie, she has worked for some very well-known lingerie companies and is an expert at the fit and look of your unmentionables.

According to "experts," "industry studies" and "surveys," anywhere between 70% - 85% of women are treating their breasts badly, either shoving them into too-small cups or allowing them to float freely in a draping sling. UGH!

So, there is a big chance that if you have not been fit for a bra, you are wearing the wrong size!!! Olga's mission in life is to change that and I am her willing partner in crime that is going to get the word out.

Olga and a friend are starting a new business and need a name. It is along the same concept as Pampered Chef, Avon, Southern Living at Home, Thirty-One, etc. Someone has a party where a representative of company to be named by you comes in and fits each person with the CORRECT size bra and you will be able to buy high-quality, beautiful bras. So, let's get creative!

Here are some things to think about:
~It is a New Orleans based company
~It needs to be an elegant name, not cheesy like Boobs-R-Us
~It needs to be able to be pronounced by the average person (I know, what's average, if you can say it, then recommend it)
~Think beauty, romance, classy.

The person with the best entry will be rewarded with some beautiful (and expensive) lingerie courtesy of my sweet friend Olga. Please get the word out to all your bloggy friends.

I think this is a fabulous idea and am so very proud of her.

Don't get caught in a booby trap,

GREAT IDEA...however, I am currently drawing a blank on a catchy name. I'll get back to you once my creative juices have started flowing!

Hey Park Wife, you have a cute blog. I enjoyed scrolling down and looking at your posts. I too love Pioneer Women. She's really a fun read.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your sweet comments.

How about "The Corseted Contessa"?
"Take My Breath Away"
"Your Private Beauty"

Maybe silly, but fun to think through.

Hmmmm.....the choices:) Here's what I've come up with so far
"Happy Hooters" (fits the corny category very well...but there are owls on my daughters swing and that was what I was looking at while thinking:)
"The Perfect Fit" is a little less corny. I'll see if I can come up with something else that might be a little better!

Hold me Close
Close to My Heart
Comfort Me

I read this and thought, "oh this will be easy" then I hit the comment button and in the time it took the page to load my mind completely stopped working.

So I thought I would try something French, because of New Orleans and because everything sounds better in French, right? (not that I would know because I don't speak it) so I put "Fit Especially for You" into a translator just knowing that it would be something beautiful and classy and it gave me - "ajustement particulièrement pour vous" So, obviously that won't work.

Trying to capitalize on the part where she comes to your house to do the fittings (which is an ingenious idea by the way, because I know my bra doesn't fit right, but you don't see me at a bra store right now, do you.) That led me to "Lace at Your Place" you know, it kind of rhymes and that is....okay, probably not it either.

How about "Personalized Beauty" or "Personalized Fit"

I don't know....maybe naming companies is not my gift. If I come up with anything better I will let you know!

Leather and Lace (not very original)

Le Bra Shoppe'

Le Bra Specialty

I have not been here in a while.
Just check to in to see how everyone was. I don't have any catchy names, but it sounds like a good idea. Good luck to your friend.

Bellaseno Brazz - Bellaseno is a play on the italian words for beauty and breast.
