Bloggers' Beauty Night Out

Last night I had the opportunity to attend a party hosted by Gentri, and sponsored by some amazing companies. I asked SueAnn to go too, because who likes to go to a party alone?! Not me.

Gentri is an aesthetician based in Draper and you can get a peek at what services she offers by clicking HERE.

Gentri was available to do some sample make up on us (I had her define my eyes) using the always-amazing MAC line up. I think I'll be picking one of the lovely bronze colors for my stocking this year.

Sponsors included Cheerfully Charmed, who's currently offering 50% off using code HAPPY on their site. (kno)Name, creator of the AMAZING Flektor watches, Violet Hill Boutique, based in Provo (love me the color block dress), Perfectly Posh and Pixie Pie Jewelry also provided support for this night out.

The A La Mode salon is new in Draper (580 E 12300 S) and it is so gorgeous. I want silvery-grey striped walls after seeing it. And yes, I want this chandelier. In every room of my future home someday.

I had a great time meeting other bloggers from the area, and meeting some bloggers I've only known online before. Everyone was so nice and Gentri lined up some amazing gifts for everyone. When I first arrived in the complex, I wasn't sure if I was in the right place. I was on the phone with SueAnn (who was also on her way) and I pulled into a parking space to tell her where I was. From my car, I spotted a girl with a top knot and red lips inside one of the salons. If you know anything about blogging, you'll know that was a dead-giveaway that I found the party (top knot+red lipstick = blogger).

SueAnn, Gentri and me
All the beautiful bloggers
I walked away with this delicious Essie polish and I'm psyched to try it out today when Aspen's napping. I also received a $20 gift certificate good toward esthetics services and I'm leaning toward getting eyelash extensions. Have you ever tried them? The salon is a little far from my house for just any old service, so I want to do something worth the trip, and long-lasting.

Everyone there signed a "blog roll" so you can check out all the lovely ladies in attendance. It was so much fun and I'm excited to attend another blog party next week!

  3. I'm in VERY WEST JORDAN, so I'm far from everything! But hopefully we'll be moving to Sandy soon and we'll be much much closer.

    I'll email you the photos if you'd like (I have some more I didn't post on the blog) and I'll send you SueAnn's info.

    I RSVPd to Jenny's dessert social for next week. Is that the one you're going to as well?
