a chic-geek, american ginger on a mission to create.
Today was loaded with fun bachelorette activities.
Shannon, Sarah and I started the day visiting the Bella Lani Nail Spa at Traditions. Shannon wanted a full-on Brazilian wax and the spa wear our other appointments we taking place didn’t do a full brazilian. So we got the earliest appointment and Sarah and I wished Shannon much luck as she walked back to the toture chamber.
The old lady performing the waxing kept pulling the strips prematurely and had to keep relaying them and trying again. (Not that Sarah and I were in the room, Shannon of course filled us in on the details later). Their prices for other services were really good and although I may not trust them with my vagina, I just might use them in the future for other purposes. Shannon was, naturally, a bit disgruntled after that experience, so we set off for breakfast before our other spa appointments.
We all received Mani/Pedis at The Sanctuary Spa at Traditions and Shannon received a must-needed Swedish Massage. It was delightful!
Sitting in birth order. Adorable. and check-out how incredibly amazing my hair looks! (Paul Mitchel Awapuhi Keratin Treatment with Wild Ginger)
After our amazing spa treatments, we shopped around alittle and headed over the the Longhorn Steakhouse for lunch where we met up Shannon’s Best Friend, Briana who was so amazing and had some awesome ink on her arm. We were also joined by Shannon’s soon-to-be mother-in-law and her mother-in-law’s mother-in-law (I cropped them out of this pic for privacy purposes).
After some tanning (I’ve been trying to obtain that “healthy glow”.Operation Tan Ginger is still in effect!), we headed back to our parents house for drinks. On the menu: Margaritas and Champagne, and Shannon was loving her Champagne. With the exception of 3 glasses, she drank the entire bottle… yeah.
We moved the party to my house where Shannon opened more gifts and drank… more Champagne! Kacie assisted with the consumption of this bottle, but Shannon pretty much killed this one on her own too. This time, the champagne was pink and Shannon had traded in her Champagne flute for a Betty Boop Tall Beer Glass… it was fun.
I addition to some sexy lingerie,I gave Shannon lots of cosmetic goodies so she could wear fresh, new makeup on her big day:
Maybelline Fit Foundation – #225
Maybelline Fit Powder – #225
Maybelline Fit Concealer – #25
Rimmel Blush – #003 – Pink Rose
Rimmel Natural Bronzer – #021 – Sunlight
Rimmel Exaggerated Waterproof Eye Definer – (Liner) – #261 Black
Rimmel Exaggerated Waterproof Eye Definer – (Liner) – #211 Brown
Rimmel Extra Super Lash – #101 – Black – *BONUS* Double Pack (Beauty Bargain)
Rimmel Eye Quad Shadow – #002 – Smokey Brown
Rimmel Eye Single Shadow – #100 – Glam Ice (White Shadow in a MUST!)
My favorite drugstore products usually come from Maybelline or Rimmel…of course, there are always exceptions…but since I was giving this to her all at once as kind of a jump-start to her makeup collection and exploration, I wanted to maintain some kind of a theme.
We’re still partying at my house, waiting for glue to dry on our starfish hairclips. I should have planned on doing a crap-load of DYI posts, beacause I could write a damn book a this point. I’ve always just been really crafty.
[*Note to self: More DYI posts!]
Rise’n and Shine’n early in the morning and Shannon shows no sign of slowing down right now!
