DFW Blogger Meet Up!

You have no idea how excited I was to get a chance to meet other bloggers from the DFW area and get to shop in one of my favorite places, The Body Shop.  In all honesty, I haven’t used many of the Body Shop’s products other than the oils that you burn, the body butter and the perfume.  I can never get enough of the oils because a little goes a long way and a little bottle can last forever.

The event was held at The Body Shop in North Park Mall and the store opened up at 9:30 a.m. just for the group and Chik-Fil-A brought in some tasty breakfast treats so the ladies can have something to munch on while shopping.  With me being fashionably late, I missed a majority of the event.  When I got there, three stations were set up: a station for trying foot products, a station for trying products for hands and a station for makeup and bronzing. The staff at The Body Shop was even nice enough to give us all some goodie bags that contained samples of products and coupons.  After grabbing my gift bag and a cup of coffee, I went straight for the makeup station.  I needed something to make my cheeks pop and the young lady I was working with found the perfect shade to go with my skin tone.  I was happy that she didn’t choose a color that would make me look like a clown.

While sitting in the chair, one of the staff asked had everyone entered the drawing and with me being late and all, I said I didn’t.  I filled out the form and passed it on.   And the winner is… me, lol I won the gift set from the drawing. I was so pumped. I’m pretty sure that was the reason I bought more stuff that I intended to.  I bought the blush, a lip gloss, an eye brush to help smoke my eyes out even more and some oils to burn around the house.
