DIY: Hangover Fairy Kit

Hangover FairyI know you’re clamoring to know how it went and I can now officially say that the bachelorette party was a rousing success. Adult women group sleepovers are the best and I’m glad that my apartment was able to handle all the commotion.

One of the surprises I put together for everyone was a hangover fairy kit. I looked around the Internet for ideas of what to include and all-in-all had a pretty good round up. I tried to think of what you would need before, during, or after the big night of fun. It had to be compact and useful. The finishing touch was a reusable bag that I decorated with love and each attendee’s first initial. Oh, and word to the wise, no party from here on out is complete without its own hashtag.

  • Advil for your head and unexplained bruises
  • Ring Pops for something sweet
  • Hair ties for the morning-after pj-run to Starbucks (yeah that happened)
  • Mini Orbit for after that coffee and before you’re able to stand and brush your teeth
  • Lip balm for smiling in Snapchats
  • Mini nail files for avoiding pretty dress snags
  • Antibac for use before diving into the early morning plate of fries (also happened)
  • Face wipes for wiping away raccoon eyes
  • Gatorade for sustenance
  • Paper bag for accidents
  • Reusable bag for remembering the hazy times

Friday Find: Hey, Gorgeous Face

In an attempt to keep my little baby of a blog alive and well, I thought I would introduce a quasi-series that will take place each Friday. There are so many delightful things that I come across that I wish to share with others and/or  own myself. Some attainable, some not so.

For this first one (eee!) I would like to share part of my skin care regimen. I am obsessed with skin care, specifically for the face. If there is a lotion or lip balm or sunscreen that will do something special that another one doesn’t, you have my attention. For example, I have a sunscreen for sports, a sunscreen for the beach, a sunscreen for my face, a sheer sunscreen for my body, and body and face moisturizers with sunscreen. All different purposes, all completely necessary for survival.

I recently purchased the two featured serums from The Body Shop and I love them. I promise that there is a positive difference in my skin and I should know because I analyze it on the daily. The first one is the Vitamin C Skin Boost to brighten dull skin. I apply it after my moisturizer and it makes my face velvety soft with no added oily-ness later in the day. The second is the Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment meant to even out oily and dry patches of skin (kind of gross-sounding when read in print). It is the last thing I use at night and I can tell that my face is less oil-ridden during the day.

These are relatively inexpensive when compared to serums you might find at, say, Sephora. Plus, I appreciate that The Body Shop doesn’t test on animals and uses natural ingredients. Act now because there’s a 40% sale happening for Memorial Day weekend! I just may have to pick up the Vitamin E Moisture Serum

Have a great weekend!
