Prom-O-Roma sneak peek! 

Hello readers! 
        I’m so proud to say that I’m officially a Wardrobe Boutique ambassador. Wardrobe Boutique is my favorite non-profit organization and I’m excited to embark on this new opportunity to share the latest info about their organization and upcoming events! 

 Wardrobe Boutique is having an event this Saturday, 2/27/16 to kick-off Prom-O-Rama from 11-6pm! 

Sneak peek: 


About the event:
– There are over 150 new and gently used prom dresses

– The first 20 people to purchase will receive a gift bag (jewelry, tuxedo rental coupon, and more)

– Career Wardrobe has opened a Crowdrise page- so for every $1,000 raise, they will give 5 dresses away for free! If they reach $5,000 they will donate 5 Dream packages to which will include, dress, hair, nails, and even transportation. 

Check out the page: http://bit.ly/1TDtfpI

Please share this with anyone you know that would either benefit from the low-cost prom dresses or if you want to donate your dress and/or money for the opportunity to help someone’s prom dream come true! 

Hope to see my local readers at the event! I’ll be there at 11 am to take photos. 


Treat Yo self Galentine’s Day!

I combined two of my favorite events from Parks and Rec:

Galentine’s Day and Treat Yo Self day. 

I figured why not do something that would be fun, relaxing, and serves as a reminder to put yourself first. It’s a Spa Party!

My gal pals and I had brunch, mimosas, lots of chocolate and other treats in addition to a manicure, pedicure, and a facial station.   

 Let’s start with the party favors.

Kate Spade Treat Yourself gift bags were perfect for this occasion. I believe they were on sale last year. I bought a mini manicure kit for each person to use today and take it home. 


The spread: 
My friend Liza made Treat yo self cookies! 

I had a waffle bar to channel my inner Leslie Knope. 


The gold sequince tablecloth is the best thing I’ve purchased in a while. I got it from Amazon. 

 Then we drink wine and mimosas! 


  I got this awesome brass bar cat for $50 at a vintage store. 

That’s me drinking from the jumbo size wine glass that I bought from Ross for only $10. 

 Station #1: Facial 

Girlfriends indulged in facial masks, pore stripes, and facial wipes with a vanity mirror to take home.

Station 2: Mani&Pedi   

From paraffin to nail power file, the mani station for two was eqipped with everything you would need for a great manicure. 


  The pedicure station had two chairs and two feet spa massager. Thanks to my co-worker, there was even two remote controlled chair massager cushions. 


 Items at station 2:

-nail files 

-nail buffers


-bath salts 

-nail polish 

-hand lotion

-foot scrubs and more…

I want to thank all of my friends for coming to the Galentine’s Day Spa party! I hope you all remember to Treat Yo Self! Galentine’s Day is a great time to reflect and celebrate being a woman.
