Hey guys! Are you as sad as I am that the weekend is over already?! I was definitely looking for that extra day to just relax since that didn't happen much this weekend.
On Friday, my sister and I went to the Nordstrom Spring Beauty Trend Cocktail Party. It was a fun experience, but kind of a cluster. There was hardly any structure and things were just placed all over. Plus the appetizers were tiny and the drinks were probably the only saving grace.
I went into the night excited to get all prettied up and just hang with my sister, but we were mostly separated throughout the night. I got my hair curled by T3 and I was loving how smooth and perfectly curled my hair looked. I know how to work my way around a wand and was not in the market for one, but learned some great tips. I kind of felt like the pressure was on to buy buy buy at all the different stations, I definitely didn't want or need to spend over $200 on a curling wand when I have a perfectly working one. I said I would think about it and walked away...oh well.
Next up I went for my facial with Erno Laszlo. The esthetician was very nice and personable, but I also felt slightly pressured to walk away with purchases. These skincare products are by far way out of my price range especially with a wedding up and coming. I did like some of the products used and my think about it in the future, but right now it was just too much out of my price range. I again politely said I would think about a few products and walked away.
Finally, I grabbed my last glass of wine before heading over to Nars to get my makeup done. Honestly this was my far my favorite part of the night. I had such a great makeup girl and she was giving me awesome tips and tricks on how to apply my makeup. Of course she was talking up some products, but I never felt pressure to buy anything. Turns out I ended up buying the most from Nars because I was loving some of their products.
I am going to end up returning the foundation because I didn't love the holding power compared to my UD Naked Skin Foundation. The lip colors and the setting powder are amazing and the 3 goodies on the left are free gift with purchases I got!
I'm sorry, but constantly selling me on something is not the way to go...talk to me about the product normally and maybe I will decide on my own that I need the product.
Overall I was loving my makeup and hair by the time I had gotten home that I was sad that it all had to just be washed away. I kept my glam look going while eating dinner just to prolong taking it off.
On Saturday, I was so so excited that I finally got my first FabFitFun box in. I had seen a few celebs posting about this on Instagram and felt like I wanted to be a part of the goodness of it. I was thrilled to open up my box and love my goodies that I got. I'll do a full post on what exactly I got later this week. I highly recommend if you love subscription boxes and love getting full size products that are high quality and specially curated, sign up for this box! It works on a seasonal basis and you get over $200 worth of products for only $49.99, use this link to get $10 off your first box!
I didn't get sponsored to talk about this box, I just am really excited about the products I received and love how expensive everything feels inside.
Later on Saturday, my cousin came over and we did stuff for the bridal shower and practiced for a special dance that's being done at the wedding reception.
On Sunday, after brunch plans were canceled with friends, I decided to make waffles to enjoy!
It was also National Siblings Day and of course I celebrated by posting this pic collage of my sissy and I. It makes me so sad that this time next year we won't be living together. She's seriously my best friend and when I think about how in 3 short months, we're going to be forever separated, it breaks my heart. I'm hoping lots and lots of visits are in our future or that she can just move down south with me :)!
Finally we ended the night by grabbing pizza at a new place that opened up with my cousin. Food, family and laughs are all that's needed to close out a great weekend!
Linking up with Biana for some Weekending!
