My Beauty Bash Party

Happy Friday again!! If most of you follow me on social media or read about it in previous posts, I recently hosted my Beauty Bash party!! Thanks to Birchbox and Benefit Cosmetics for teaming up and doing this awesome thing!!


Birchbox sent out this email and promoted this giveaway to win a box full of beauty products from Benefit Cosmetics to host a Beauty Bash for you and five of your friends. Of course I entered and was so surprised when I got the email that I will be receiving one of those boxes! I immediately contacted five of my best friends to join in on the fun! It was a great way to have a girls night because some of us are moms, have crazy work schedules and its hard trying to get everyone together. I was just super excited! So you had to pick a date during the weekend of September 26-28 which was National Wing Women weekend and that Friday was the best time to host.


I was so happy when my package arrived with all my goodies for me and my girls!! I couldn't believe what was in my box!! Being the host of the party, I received the full size They're Real Mascara and  They're Real Push Up Liner and my Wing Women received the sample size along with Lolli Tint, The Porefessional and we had 1 full size Hoola Bronzer and two shades of the Gimme Brow to share. Birchbox and Benefit Cosmetics also supplied the bags to put goodies in, balloons, coasters and cards with a special Birchbox offer. I added mirrors for everyone and small Bath and Body Works candles. I just couldn't wait to have my party. There was also a website where it gave tips on how to host your Beauty Bash. It had drink and food recipes, games to play, a Pandora station to listen to and decorations.

When it was the day of my Beauty Bash, I was just too excited for the day to go by so I could see my friends!! I packed all the bags the night before and labeled each bag with everyone's name.



For decorations, I purchased pink streamers and hung them on the ceiling in my living room and created a Selfie Station for everyone to take pictures during the night.




I wanted to try some of the recipes that were provided on the website but I had to work before hand so I made pasta, Garlic Bread and Strawberry Cupcakes when I got home. I asked my Wing Women to bring something to eat or drink and we had plenty of wine lol, someone brought Garlic Wings, chips and bruschetta and other snacks.

And you see the corner of my son's fish bowl and Happy is still alive!! Yay!!


So when everyone was arriving, we were talking and catching up and someone suggested we watch How To Get Away With Murder since it premiered the night before. Everyone was hooked on that show including myself. After watching, we played the games that I printed from the website. The first one was Wingo, it was like Bingo but beauty related. As the night went on, we had to mark off if you saw anything like someone taking a selfie, someone with bling on, twerking(I'm was surprised that was on there lol) and just like Bingo, you had to get five in a row. The next game was called Flattergories. There were 15 categories such as Color, Drink and Dance Move and the host had to come up with a letter and everyone had 3 minutes to fill in each category with something that started with that letter. For example, I picked the letter S and a color you could fill in for that category would be Silver. This game was so much fun, we were too busy laughing at everyone's answers. The person who had the most points won the game. I had two prize bags for each game. 

Honestly, we really didn't get into the makeup because we were having too much fun laughing, eating, drinking wine and just catching up. I will be doing reviews on the products I received soon! I'm so glad I was able to host this party and we were all talking about planning more Girls Night and a Girls Trip somewhere. Thanks again to Birchbox and Benefit Cosmetics for this amazing giveaway!!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!



I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
