When someone gives me the opportunity to pamper myself, well, let’s just say I won’t go running in the opposite direction. So when I was invited to a Mary Kay event last month in celebration of International Women’s Day, I said “I’m in”!! It was just before my trip to Nashville and goodness knows I’d been spending way to much time either at work or in front of the computer, so as hard as it was to pull away, off I went.
When I got to the event, I was greeted by my Mary Kay consultant who was armed and ready to help me and all the other guests choose cleansers, creams and make up colors before the makeover began.
Next we all sat down in groups and each had a personal BEFORE photo taken.
Tips for taking a BEFORE the makeover photo!!
One lesson I have learned, is that if you getting a makeover, and you let someone take a BEFORE shot, try to make sure that you are NOT LOOKING DOWN, and that you have GOOD LIGHTING.
“Amy, you’re not looking down and there seems to be good lighting….”
Well that’s that’s my story and I sticking to it!
As the mass makeover transpired, all of us girls applied cleansers, creams and the suggested make up colors, and before you know it, all of the makeover attendants were complimenting one another.
“That color really brings out your eyes…”
“What shade of lipstick are you wearing? I love it…”
By the end of the event, I felt revived and even a little more “special”, ya know?
I also had the chance to look at and sample some of the other Mary Kay products. One of the products is the Lemon Parfait Pedicure Set which smells sooooo good I could basque in it all day. Truly!
Perfect Mother’s Day gift idea… I’m sending out hint’s, in case anyone is listening.
Since I liked it so much, and because I’ve heard from my Mary Kay rep that there are only a few of these left for the season,
I’m giving one away, thus it’s a
Lemon Parfait Pedicure Set GIVEAWAY!

Please note: This is not a sponsored post. and I’m not a huge wearer of make up, but I’ve been using Mary Kay for quite some time and find that the skin care products work very well for my skin type. I just wanted to share a product that I really like.
Horsey get’s a makeover
This is Charity. She’s a 35 year old Arabian mare. She has given life to about 7 or more colts and fillies and she has been in our family for a long, long time. She is sweet and gentle and enjoyed every minute of her horsey makeover (which in case you are wondering, consists of several horse brushes and a hoof pick).
Thank you so much for stopping by and good luck on the giveaway!
I’ll post the winner later next week.
Hope you are having a parfait day ~ Amy
