Birthday Fun

Last year my sister took me for a surprise makeover as my birthday present so this year we decided to do something similar.  After attending Girl's Night Out at the Alliance Francaise and meeting a makeup artist from Laura Mercier, I thought it would be fun to make an appointment for a session with her.  So my sister and I spent an afternoon (and I do mean an afternoon) at Saks last Sunday. 

It just so happened to be beauty week and what this means is you get gifts - all sorts!!!!  We both got one of these really cute totes that were filled with samples of all sorts of products - fragrances, shampoos, skin care creams and lotions.

We spent a few hours going through the skin care line and getting our faces made over.  The artist spent lots of time sharing application techniques and thankfully gave me an instruction card so that I could follow the instructions when trying to apply makeup at home.

The next couple of weeks at work are going to be hectic with a couple of trips thrown in the mix.  It really helps to throw in some fun during the weekends.  And speaking of fun, I'm looking forward to the Country Living Fair next weekend!  Are you planning to go?
