I was asked to participate in the #SayItWithPepsi campaign, sponsored by PepsiCo. at Walgreens. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.
There is something so sweet about the summer months – the sunshine radiating across your face, time spent by the water, getaways with friends. It’s the time of the year that speaks to me the most, combining my love of the outdoors, warm weather and my best friends all in one place.
Which is why I was so thrilled about my long weekend at the lake for July 4th. Although it was a few weeks ago, I like reflecting back on my mini-vacay! Packing my weekender bag had me thinking about all of the fun in the sun that was headed my way… that is until I realized the sheer volume of things that I needed to pack for the trip.
I’m a person that likes to be in control of the party, which means that I often take it upon myself to organize, purchase and pack all of the items that I think we will need – like towels, mixers, drink recipes. A lot of the time it’s so much easier to pick up my shopping list on the way to my destination – swinging through a convenience store like Walgreens to stock up right before I arrive.
This time I was quick to pick up those bottles that I keep seeing around me, the Pepsi bottles with emojis on them. And because these Pepsi emoji bottles are the best summer accessory, Walgreens is offering a promotion! Throughout July and August, you can get 2 for $3 and earn 250 balance reward points!
I am completely addicted to emojis in every aspect of my life (looking at you heart eyes), so it’s only natural that I have a Pepsi emoji in hand throughout the weekend. What’s even cooler about the Pepsi emoji bottles? ,is that they are all proprietary to Pepsi, so you haven’t seen them before on your keyboard – cool, right?
It should also be said that my friends and I all identify with one emoji in particular – for me it’s theheart eyes, for my best friend it’s the rosy cheeks, for another it’s the shades emoji, since they think they’re cool LOL!So with all of our particular emojis in mind we each chose a Pepsi emoji bottles for the weekend and stuck to it.
Not only did it make us all laugh seeing each other with our spirit animal emojis all weekend, but it also made keeping track of what drink was ours much much easier – which we all know can be a struggle during long days near the water.
All in all, our weekend away was a staggering success, full of laughter, sunshine, and fun in the sun with friends – an experience we will be repeating every weekend for the rest of the summer, drinks in hand.
