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!! 

So that is it on my Beauty Bash. Were you picked to host one? If not, what do you do for girls night? Comment below and let me know!! See you guys Sunday!!

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
