Weekend recap

Friday, Geof and I went to Applebee’s for dinner and then headed home for a quiet night in to catch up on some of our shows. I did my nails and we called it an early night.

OPI DS in Opulence

Saturday, I had to get up at 5:30 am for the Nordstrom Trend Show. This was my first time going, so I didn’t know what to expect. Kristen got to my house around 7 and we dashed out the door. Once we got to Nordstrom, there were already at least 200 hundred ladies seated and walking about. We found some seats to the side of the runway and watched the show. The models looked great and it was fun to see the different makeup looks. They started the show talking about skincare and then moved into beauty products. They did a ton of giveaways and it was entertaining.

Goodies from the Trend Show

After the fashion/beauty show, the beauty counters opened up and it was a stampede of women. A lot of freebies, holiday sets and samples were being offered. Everyone wanted first dibs, so it was a little chaotic. I did get to learn about some new brands that I wasn’t familiar with, my favorite being Osmotics Skincare. They used their skincare products on us with a short light therapy session. Very relaxing. We grabbed a quick lunch at the mall and then went back to Nordstrom for our makeup appointment at MAC. Overall we had a lot of fun and will probably attend the next show that they do in the spring.

I spotted these earrings and had to have them

Kris and I after getting our makeup done at MAC. It was a lot of makup and I wasn't super happy with the lip color. I think I'll stick with my MAC in Macy's from now on.

Saturday evening, Kristen’s hubby Sean came over and the four of us had a date night in. We ordered pizza, had some pumpkin beer (Saranac in my new favorite) and watched the Phillies get eliminated by the Giants. It was not a good weekend for sports in our house, but we did have a nice night.

My new favorite!

Sunday was a lazy day around the house. My mom stopped over in the evening and we watched Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I worked for a bit and called it a night.

It was a terrible weekend for sports! I was hoping the Phillies would make the WS since the Yankees couldn't :(

I think you both look great. I'm going to a similar event at Macy's next weekend, totally prepared for the stampede after. Holiday shopping has begun!

Sounds like you were tuckered out from the day of serious fashioning. Like the earrings, love the beer.

Gracie Beth said...

I am going to have to see if I can find that beer!

I love that OPI color!

I'm not big on beer but pumpkin beer does sound enticing. The geek in me wants to imagine it tasting like something out of Harry Potter. lol

The Nordstrom Trend Show sounds SOOO fun! I think your make-up looks good but I know it's usually darker in person than in a photo. Love the earrings... great find!

Lucky! I can only but MAC at Nordstrom (or a MAC store) out here. It's a pain too because you have to pay for parking atthe malls :(

Anyways, I think the makeup looks great on you. I know how it feels when there's too much, but honestly you look so pretty :)

I keep trying pumpkin beers, this one should be next. Where did you find it?

Totally bummed about the Phillies! I was rooting for them. After the Utley (he's SO hot ;) incident I am way over the Giants.

Have a great week!!

P.S. Head over to my blog to enter my latest giveaway :)

Trend show looks like fun! A great fall weekend if you are asking me :)

I'm disappointed that the Phillies didn't win the NL pennant for a 3peat, but happy for the AL Rangers for their first World Series appearance.

The Trend Show looked like fun and I am LOVING those earrings!

I love that nail polish color - so pretty!

The Nordstrom event sounds like a lot of fun. I love going to things like that. I think your make-up looks really pretty, but I laughed when I read what you wrote about the lip color because it looks almost identical to what they put on me earlier this year. It's like they put all this eye makeup on you, so they decide they have to do a really neutral lip color (which I generally don't like on myself). Yours looks great, though.

I have been watching RHOBH myself and I find it completely entertaining, but I think these people are a bit much (especially Camille Grammer and her 17 houses comment - ugh).
