Today we went to the What Women Wants Show. Let's see me, plus 3 girls under the age of 4, crowded isles, lots of free sugar and things to touch; am I ready for this? Yes, yes I am. I am the queen of chaos, aren't I?
On our way into the South Towne Expo Center Yesenia shouts, "Take my picture with the lipsticks." She thought the cement columns were lipsticks. I did tell her it was a girl party.
Then she said, "Look I'm Ariel." Little did she know she was about to meet Ariel.
Part of Your World Princess Parties
had a booth there where we got a free picture with Ariel. The girls dressed up, met Ariel and got her signature. Yesenia loved that Ariel pointed out the princess's on her shirt as all her best friends.
They got free face painting, beach balls, mirrors and lots of junk food. Lowe's was even hosting a free craft for kids with lots of how to idea's thru out the day. That was one of the highlights of the show if you are bringing kids. Stop by for a free apron, goggles and a craft.
These kind of shows always have lots of everything at them. Over the years I have watched different fads come and go. I remember scrapbook pages being big, the interchangeable watches, baby flower clips, jewelry, and so on. This year it is the modern boutique clothes. The peach, mint green, coral and gray colors. With bubble necklaces, layered tops and chevron prints. LOTS of maxi skirts, colored skinny jeans, and modern tops. If you have been wanting a wardrobe update and want a large selection to look at that than make sure you go.
I went knowing I wanted 3 specific things. I had a budget and surprisingly I stuck to it. I saved my spending money for the past 2 weeks just for today.
The first thing I wanted was blush. Not just any blush, blush from NS Minerals
. I am sure you all know (or maybe are) one of those women that can't leave the house with out full make-up, hair and outfit done. I am not that girl, at all! I rarely have time to do make up and in the past wasn't very good at it. So when my brother married a sweet girl who not only sold make up, but understood it I went asking for help. Sad I know, I'm how old just learning to wear make-up. I figure with 3 girls it's about time. I just don't want to go too cheap, but I also don't want to break the bank either. I don't go thru makeup very fast because of how little I wear it. I like a light make up with a natural look. NS Minerals was a winner for me instantly! I love how light it feels and it's really quick to apply as well. With all their cdifferent pigments to choose from I can go simple or dress it up for a night out. I asked my sister in law if they were going to be at the show a head of time and set aside my money just for this
! Go to their booth and they can help you find the right color just for you!
The next thing I wanted was earrings. Cheap ones that go with the the colors that are in right now. I also wanted bright colored one's to stand out since I have such dark hair. Yesenia helped me pick out these cute yellow and pink one's. I wanted blue but she really liked the pink, so I got them. Plus they were on sale for only $3 a pair thru Plunder Design
. Which do you like better?
I was surprised when I didn't find the third thing I came for. I wanted a new cute headband for Graciellla, my 5 month old. I want cute pastel flowers with a cute rhinestone or something. Know a good place, that's not over priced, let me know.
Then I had $10 splurge money. I spent $5 of it on earrings for my girls, a cheap wand and pink crown. When I buy earrings for the girls I try to buy at least 2 pairs of the same earring. That way when one disappears, I have a pair for back up replacements. Just a tip for those of you that have little ones with pierced ears. It doesn't take much to loose an earring. Especially when dad's pull of their onesies with little regard or at least that is how most of mine have been lost.
One booth that I really liked and am going to place an order with is a new company called Tuckeez
. They are iron on things that help keep kids tucked in, or from straps needing to be adjusted. I am very intrigued by it and think I will buy a pair and give it a try!
I also saw my friend from Price Match with Rachel
as well. If you didn't win tickets from me check out her site for free tickets, then stop by her booth for some good deals or for those glitties toes
Stop by the Scheel's
booth for free ferris wheel tokens and a schedule of their kids klub free events.
Lots of giveaways, freebies, and fun. Stob by today till 8 PM or tomorrow the 13th from 10-6 at The South Towne Expo Center in Sandy, UT.
**I received complimentary tickets in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was received.**
