One week ago today, I had the rare privilege of hanging out with a group of stylish mamas at my Beauty Mommy Mixer, which was held at my friend Aimee’s brand new spot, Whim Whim Art Studio. What a beautiful setting for a night of fashion and fun!
After the MAC team spoke, I gave my fashion presentations, although, judging from my stylish guests, from left, Erin, with me, Jill, and Ashley, no help was needed. My first talk was on the top fashion trends of the season (check out my Pinterest board, Mixer, for links to my top picks!) and another entitled Wear This, Not That. I concluded with 5 Items Every Woman Should Own. Look for the scoop from these presentations in upcoming blogs. I concluded with a quick rundown on dealing with a picky eater!
Here, my friends Jean and Ashley illustrate the “pop of color” trend.
After the fashion and beauty presentations, my friend Heather Post of The Etiquette Seed spoke about instilling manners in children, even at a young age. One of her best tips: Involve them in your conversations with other adults so that they can learn conversational skills! Love her tips!
And since no fashion event is complete without shopping, we were treated to a posh private shopping party featuring the designs of some supertalented moms. Karla Leschitz of MerciBOWcoup, makes stunning, unique custom hair bows and accessories, some with matching outfits, and Mandy Ryan, who fashions suncatchers stunning enough to be worn as jewelry.
Guests also left with samples from CANFO Natural Products, including their most popular product, FlushMe, a 2-Day Cleanse, and Eye Care, formulated for those of us who spend too much time at the computer! (Shown above, with samples, Erum, Kymbrough, and Heather!) I am currently using (and loving!) BeautifyMe, so I will be posting a review soon! Mrs. Meyers, a personal favorite of mine, sent samples of its heavenly-scented dish soap as well as coupons for a full sized product. Love! And of course there were mascara samples from MAC and skincare goodies from Rodan + Fields. Orlando-based Silly Lips was also kind enough to send coupons for their all natural lip balms. Love the cheeky vintage packaging!
