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.




Galentine’s Day invite

Ladies, it’s about that time again…

I’m hosting my 2nd annual Galentine’s Day party! 
Last year, I made scratch off invites and this year, I used a balloon invite. I got the idea and the printables from Pinterest. 

What you will need: 

1. Printable blow up and pop background

2. Your actual invite

3. Balloon 

4. Sequins/confetti 

5. Cardstock paper -for background 

6. Decorated tape

Print out the background and paste it onto card stock paper. Then print and roll up your small invite into the balloon. Add confetti but not too much that it might annoy your friends. Tape the balloon on the invite and you’re done. 

This year’s theme is Treat Yo’ Self. Love yourself before you can love anyone else. 

So that means… 

SPA party. 

Remember Galentine’s day is for ladies to celebrate ladies and empower each other while having a good time. More details to come



Galentine’s Day!

Happy early Galentine’s Day! (2/13)

It was a successful brunch with my friends. It is a time for us to celebrate women. We had brunch at a tea room called “A Taste of Britain.” The table was located in the back so we had a little more privacy. We had girl talk over scones, tea, and wine.I’m glad I decided to host a Galentine’s day event because we should remember to compliment and appreciate instead of constantly gossiping and judging each other. I hope this will inspire others to do the same!

Mini chalkboard sign from Target: $3

Personalized peach lollipop from Oriental Trading: $13.99
Bucket from Target: $3



I used a word search generator to personalize these place mats for my ladies. I chose six adjectives to best describe each girl.

I kept it simple for the goodie bags. On each of the bags, I printed my favorite selfie of each girl taken from their instagram. Inside, I put together a mixed cd of 14 top girl songs, one facial mask packet, a highlighter (for the word search) and lip balm. I want to also mention that it was very difficult to find songs that empower women or about friendship. Some of the songs on the cd include, Spice Girls- Wannabe, TLC- No scrubs, Beyonce – Run the World (girls), etc.




Photos from the event:








A big thanks to all of my wonderful friends that put up with my antics now and over the years. I would have never been able to get through life without them. I value all past, present, and future friendships because I’m a better person with every influence.

Remember to show how much you appreciate the women in your life! Also, shout out to Amy Poehler for creating a funny but meaningful message through this idea of Galentine’s Day.



Galentine’s Day excitement

Three weeks until Galentine’s Day! If you’re not sure what that means, it’s from Parks n Rec. It’s a day for women to celebrate women. I’m not a feminist but it’s a great idea to remind the awesome ladies in your life that they’re special. Invites are out and now I’m just looking for inspiration to think of creative party favors. Anyone have suggestions? Share some ideas.

Stay tune for updates on my Galentine’s Day event.



Galentine’s Day invites

I’m hosting my first annual Gal-entine’s Day brunch. If you’re a fan of Parks and Rec then you know what I’m talking about. It’s a day for the ladies to get together and empower each other. So I’m inviting my girlfriends to brunch at a restaurant to talk about many topics including (but not limited to) politics, love, and life.

An invite sets the bar for your event so I’ve decided to do something different. I made a simple scratch off invite.

Things you’ll need:
1) Card stock
2) Template (I created my own circles)
3) White crayon
4) Metallic acrylic paint
5) Dish soap
6) Paintbrush


1) Put your template on cardstock or write your own invite using a sharpie.
I created my own on word.


2) Use a white crayon to cover the part you would like to be revealed. Be sure to smooth it out before you add the paint.

3) Use two tablespoons of acrylic paint (metallic color will work best) and one tablespoon of dish soap and mix it. Paint over the part that you colored in with white crayon.


4) It’s important to let it completely dry. It can take up to an hour. Then send them to your friends. :)


I can’t wait to celebrate! Thanks for reading and don’t forget to treat yoself!
