Essential Oil Make & Take Spa Party!

Saturday night I threw a fun Essential Oil Make & Take Spa Party!  8 of my friends came over to make bath and body products and learn about essential oils from my sister Sara.  I put out some food.  And some kick ass punch.  I’m so mad I didn’t get a picture of it.  But trust, it was awesome.  Recipe: 2 bottles moscato wine, 2 bottles Sprite, 2 cans/tubes of frozen pink lemonade.  Mix together, slice up a lemon or lime to float in the punch and serve.  SO good.  Everyone loved it.  Thanks for the recipe Bonnie!

Sara arrived a half hour before everyone else to set up.  She set up the table in such a cute way with trays with all our supplies we’d need.    Here’s a close up of each place setting.   We were able to take notes in the inside of each flier that she made.  So cute!  First Sara told us all about essential oils and what they are, how to use them etc.  Then she passed around each of the eleven oils that come in the Premier Starter Kit from Young Living.   We all smelled the oils and picked out our favorites (Stress Away!!!)  Then we got to work.  We made body wash, linen/room spray, and sugar scrub.  Sara had made lip balms for all of us ahead of time.  And at the party she made us whipped body butter.  It was all so easy!  And by the end of it we all smelled amazing! Check out the finished products!   If you’d like to smell amazing like us and be able to make all your own bath and body products, you can sign up for the premier starter kit here.

July Ipsy Glam Bag!

My July Ipsy Glam Bag came today!  Super cute bag filled with all new to me products!

IMG_5592

The breakdown:

  • Pur-lisse SPF 30 Sunscreen.  Perfect for travel and it’s supposedly good for sensitive skin.  Yay!IMG_5593
  • Bare Minerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow.  The color is a dark taupeish color.  It doesn’t say which shade it is on the teeny tiny bottle.  A little dark for me for Summer but I’ll use it for sure in the Fall. IMG_5597
  • Clear Clinic Vanished Clear Spot Treatment.  It’s a tiny bottle of pimple treatment. Good for travel when my skin almost always acts up!IMG_5596
  • Tints & Sass Fabulous Lip & Cheek Stain by Elizabeth Mott in Cherry.  I’m a wee bit afraid of this as I have such fair skin. I don’t want to look like Raggedy Ann with big red cheeks.  But I’ll try it! IMG_5594
  • Models Own nail polish in Red Sea. It’s a reddish orangeish coral with holographic glitter floating around in there!  Can’t wait to try it! IMG_5595

Ipsy Oopsie!

When my June Ipsy Glam Bag came I had a problem with 2 of the items.  The Be A Bombshell mascara smelled SO bad and chemically that it was unusable.  And the Jessie’s Girl liquid eye liner exploded all over me and my eye.  So I sent Ipsy an email and got one back that they’d send me some replacement items.  My replacement package came today!

IMG_5550

Ipsy sent me 3 things to replace the 2!  Nice!  I got:

  • Starlooks Kohl Eye Pencil in Obsidian (black)
  • Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss in Last Call Girl (hot pink)
  • and Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Plum

I’m super excited about these products and I’m very impressed with Ipsy’s customer service!
