Girl's Night

Tonight was the day of my Mary Kay party. This is my first "product party" that I've ever hosted. And hopefully my last for a while :-P It was a lot of fun, but lots of work, and I felt like I was forcing people to buy things which I felt terrible about! I did, however, get lots of free stuff, so that's a plus! :-P

When it was time to leave for the party, I went to my parents' house to pick up my mom, and SURPRISE! ...I saw Julie's (my sisters) car in the driveway! Apparently a few of her classes were canceled this week, so she came home for a long weekend. It was a nice surprise that she was able to come to my party!

Overall, it was a lot of fun, we all got to give ourselves makeovers with fun products, and we got to chat and laugh with one another. I was given a lot of information about becoming a consultant myself, but NO THANK YOU. That will NOT be happening!

I really do love Mary Kay products. They are a little pricier than what I pay for my normal Cover Girl or Maybelline, but I think it's worth the few extra dollars. It was a real treat to get almost all of this for free for hosting a show!!
I'm excited to have a whole new make-up routine to work with! Maybe I will have to take a before and after picture tomorrow to share :-)

Like I said, I probably wouldn't host another party anytime soon. But I guess every once in a great while it is worth it for all the free goodies ;-)


  1. Yeah, those are alot of work! And I hate when I go to one (as a favor for a friend,) the felt need to sped's just awful. I'd love to hear about your new makeup routine!

  2. Those parties are a lot of fun. However, I was asked to host one a few years back- I was told that the consultant just wanted to give us free makeovers. So I invited friends over to join & I didn't know until the end that you're supposed to purchase!
    Not many girls bought the makeup so I ended up buying one of each product because I felt so bad! Good thing I love MaryKay! :)

  3. Those parties are always so fun, but I'm afraid to actually be the hostess of them! I have that same concern about making people buy the product, even though I love the products myself!


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
