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!!

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh! 

You guys may see another appearance from my son, he is so silly and full of energy lol! I think I forgot to mention some favorites but you'll see them next month. What products have you tried? What were your thoughts? See you guys Thursday!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
