My Beauty-Filled Weekend

I had so much fun this weekend! Friday night was a night out to celebrate a friend's birthday, and girls nights are always such fun. But my beauty weekend was only beginning, because then I drove up to Washington DC to meet some of my gorgeous beauty bloggers for drinks at the Ritz-Carlton. I was fortunate enough to meet Lianne of The Makeup Girl, Julia of All About the Pretty, and the Jenn/Christine combo from Beauty in Real Life. If you aren't reading these blogs, you are missing out. Not only are these ladies beautiful, but they are incredibly smart. I'm pretty certain that they know just about all there is to know about all things beauty related, and if they don't know, they know someone who does. I felt like I was hanging out at the cool kids' table. Three martinis and a cheese plate later, we were heading over to the MAC Pro store inside the mall and I learned about Paint Pots. All in all, a fantastic time was had by all, and I can't wait to do it again!

The following day, I had a leisurely morning having coffee and lounging in bed. Then I decided to head over to the major Sephora store in the other mall. I am SO glad I did! Now, my faithful readers will know that I am devoted to my drugstore skin care - I have preached it for so long that I can't imagine talking about anything else. But the lovely Bliss associate (and I could just kick myself because I cannot remember her name, and she was so fabulous) talked me into getting a quick oxygen facial. Not only did I get an amazing facial, but I learned so much about the Bliss line and the benefits for people with difficult skin like mine.

I've put together a fancy little show for you, explaining each thing I got and why I love it so. I've only been using this regimen for two days and I am already noticing a big change in my complextion. It's more even, smoother, and I'm not having any problems with breakouts. While I think the prices are on the high side, I truly feel as if the price is worth it for such excellent quality.
