I've changed the sender's name slightly to protect her identity, as well as her company name. And I am so excited to partake in this golden opportunity, I will put my thoughts in red throughout. Because my thoughts are RED as in HIGH-ALERT WITH EXCITEMENT RED.
Here's the email:
My name is Polly and I’m the Community Manager at Chairy-Chair-Chair. Here at Chairy-Chair-Chair we believe mixing vintage furnishings and accessories into your home decor can add splash of pizzazz ["add splash of pizzazz?" Tell me more!] to any room and allows you to define your own unique design personality. [My unique design personality consists of sale furniture and my parents' leftover tables and chairs, which I sometimes cover with a cloth.] I love your individual sense of style, [Why, thank you!] and would like to invite you to participate in our Style Challenge! [Oh my God—a Style Challenge!]
We’ll provide you and an elite group of other bloggers ["an elite group of other bloggers"—pinch me, I'm dreaming!] with images of a variety of vintage items from our from ["from our from" hey-ho, what's going on here? I'm going to keep reading because after all, I am now part of this elite group of other bloggers.] collections for inspiration--declare your favorite pieces to mix together, then create a styleboard featuring your favorite pick! [I don't know what a styleboard is—it sounds like something they might use at the Pratt Institute School of Design. This is intimidating, this Style Challenge.]
From there, simply share your creative look and insights on your blog! [That's it?! I simply share my creative look and insights, consisting of your products, on my blog?! Then what happens? What do I win? Fabulous Prizes?!?!] You can talk about any design elements (history, texture, color, etc) and how they all complement the flow of your design. We look forward to sharing some our of favorites of on social. [Wait, now, wut? "sharing some our of favorites of on social" ? You lost me, but I want those fabulous prizes. *continues reading*]
Interested? [HELL YEAH YOU KNOW I AM]
Then, just email me back ASAP, and I'll supply you with the images you’ll need to get started. If you have any questions, feel free to give me a shout! [Um, well, okay then.]
XOXO, [Are you giving me multiple hugs and kisses? That's so friendly!]Polly

I'll give you a shout, "Polly," here it is: WHAT ARE MY FABULOUS PRIZES FOR SHARING YOUR PRODUCTS ON MY ELITE BLOG? I'm sure they're extremely wonderful and will help me move forward with my elite-blog activities. My unique design personality needs to eat and pay rent and turn on the furnace once in a while, I'm sure you know how that is. So just clue me in on the wonderful payoff I'll receive once I feature your products here, free of charge, for all the Internet to see.
As a Community Manager, I'm sure you know the ins and outs of group dynamics, especially amongst those of us with unique design personalities. As soon as you and your Chairy-Chair-Chair community come to fair-compensation consensus, you give me a shout. This is what I call my "Class-act Challenge," should you care to participate.
Yours in pizzazz,
