Possible pattern for the October MyGlam bag! I think this is my favorite one so far. 

 

 

 

 

And it looks like we have the lovely Amber (Fairest of All) to thank for it.

The rest of the email with that bag picture said this:

 

"INTRODUCING YouMatch PERSONALIZATION

Essentially provide the company with feedback, suggestions and some other stuff that I can't talk about (but what I'm doing will be announced soon). I think Amber already is one. I'm still bound my the NDA I signed however I can say that what's coming up is going to make many people really happy and some might down right hate it. Personally the changes that are coming I think are great and is the result of the blogger meeting in March and follow up emails and phone calls as well as so many wonderful suggestions from various people (Amber's suggestion in the black and white pattern for example). I wish I could say more but again that NDA retricts me from saying too much but there are more changes in the works.

Yep, Amber was the original Ambassador.

...anyways, my question was a rhetorical...

 

If you are an ambassador, Amber, then you'd be an awesome one.

My daughter was just commenting on how striking the black and white and how well it goes with that shade of red!

Right, I remember that from back in January, long before the MG honchos were trying to repair their image from the debacle that was the February bags. Still a shame that she wasn't able to make the flight out for their big pow-wow--who knows what amazing ideas she might have suggested that would've already been implemented by now? Amber seems to be quite good at keeping her finger on the pulse of what is actually happening among MG subscribers as well as "industry insiders", which is a nice way to avoid the "echo chamber" effect that often happens when companies only listen to "insiders", rather than paying attention to what their actual customer base wants.

You ladies are so sweet. I feel fortunate that Myglam asked me to be involved with them shortly after their launch and that my input has in any way been helpful :) From what Myglam explained to me the NDA all the ambassadors signed were identical and basically stated we have to keep information regarding the MG hq trip confidential. In my case because I missed the trip the information, photos, sneak peeks, etc were sent to me via email and phone communication with MG as well as talking to other ambassadors who attended. Almost everything we were bound by that would interest you guys has been made public at this point so I would consider us pretty clear to talk about most things legally. Everything that has been shared with me outside of the specifications of the NDA were asked to remain confidential, but I'm certainly not bound legally. I just don't like ruining surprises ^.^

I forgot to mention it in my above post, but when you were made an Ambassador, I thought to myself, "See, she FITS what they want the public face of that company to be--spunky, involved, and unique." I know a boring, overweight ex-housewife like myself would definitely not be as attractive as a public liaison for a product that so clearly targets the youth market. WTG, girlie!

Yes, yes, and yes! Fully agree!

I'm resubscribing simply because of Amber's great idea for the bag pattern and the interesting YouMatch possibilities.

Very excited! Thanks for your creativity, Amber!

Oh, I wasn't being derogatory towards myself: I just mean that if I WERE sixteen or so, someone like Amber would be much more appealing as a public face to a product than someone old enough to be my mother many times over ;)

 

 

But thank you.
