It was definitely all things beautiful, fragrant and fun this past Saturday at the Nordstrom Towson Pretty Party! While I was feeling a little less than pretty for the party, thanks to my so NOT fun dental surgery on Friday, a little make-up, a spritz of perfume and a lot of beauty talk can definitely lift a lady’s spirits! It was fun to chat with all of the beauty brand experts, see some new looks for fall and learn more than a few new tricks of the trade! Drop me in a craft store or a beauty department and I’m running amok like a child at the toy store! I DID try to stop talking with everyone now and then, trusty i-Phone in hand, to share a little look at some of what I spied, tried and eyed at the Pretty Party.
How much did I love talking to the ladies from my can’t-live-without-it beauty product, Clarisonic? (Catch my post here to see why the Clarisonic is in my skincare toolkit!) More to come on my love for all things Clairisonic – and perhaps even a surprise!
Fellow lovers of Marc Jacob’s perfume Dot (and the gorgeous ladybug bottle) – have you tried Honey?
Sweet, bright and warm, Honey reminds me of pure sunshine. SO wish I’d gotten a better photo of the bee bottle, which must, as soon as possible, be sitting right next to my ladybug bottle! I totally think a being enveloped in a little Honey will be THE perfect pick-me-up on a nasty, winter day. I’m thinking….holiday gift!
Any other lipstick fanatics in the house? Isn’t it amazing how finding just that perfect shade can just make us look – and even feel – better on a not so good day? The Bordeaux Lip is THE look for fall and there was every shade to try at the party. Yes, I probably wiped off an entire layer of lip skin because of course, I had to try them all!
Two lovely ladies, the fabulous Nordstrom Towson Beauty Manager, Clara and beautiful Ida from Smashbox, took time out of a busy day for a photo.
Can’t wait to share some of the ways I’m changing up my routine and look with Smashbox!
It was music, makeovers, gifts with purchase and national make-up artists from Dior, Bobbi Brown and more…all taking place near the breathtaking display and incredible scents from the Jo Malone counter. The Peony and Blush Suede fragrance was in the spotlight and the table was gorgeous!
Thanks to the rockin’ girls from Bobbi Brown for doing my make-up and sharing some great tips on eyeliner, brows and more! Of course, the display from Lancome was just too cute!
It was a totally fun day! Thanks to Clara and all of the Nordstrom Towson beauty brand experts for sharing their insights, tips, and more. Now of course, I’m not keeping all this to myself – lots of beauty chat on the way! Got a specific beauty topic, thought or issue we should talk about? Let’s drop it in the beauty bag and put it on the table!
Thank you for walking around with me at the party and for all of the sweet feel better wishes, it helped me SO much! Have a happy Thursday!
