Then, per the recommendation of my facialist, I use the Clarifying Cleanser at the gym. I use this strictly after workouts and not ever at home, it stays in the gym bag.

Having too many Scribd items on the page slowed things down. You can see and download the tags here!
The second item is a printable sign. I made the letters larger than most signs since the word is short and plan to hang this on the table/buffet for the party. I think it is the perfect size for this.Boo Sign
From the looks of these printables it is going to be a chevron Halloween. Not too spooky, but most certainly FUN!

"All of the 100% cotton bow ties are hand-cut and hand-made by a professional sewing company in North Carolina. By committing themselves to classic southern mainstays such as tattersalls, ginghams, and madras plaids, High Cotton Ties supports the revival of southern textile history.
The folks at High Cotton Ties “are firm believers that bow ties should be a regular part of a gentleman’s wardrobe, not simply reserved for formal events. By avoiding novelties and embracing traditional patterns, we create our bow ties with the expectation that they will be worn often and be admired just as frequently.” High Cotton Ties works with a motto of C’s – ‘cotton, comfortable, clean, classic, and custom- made’. The ties are easy-to-wear and easy-to-wash, as tested many times through home-based stain washing and customers have raved about the wearability of the products, as they maintain professionalism without pretentiousness.
The company has also developed a line of cummerbunds to meet the large market which had yet to find a solid, diverse provider. Products are always available for custom order, including the option to monogram the material for an even more personal touch."
Monograms are music to my ears as you know and one LUCKY reader will win a monogrammed cummerbund from High Cotton Ties! With the holidays just around the corner and football season still in full swing there is not a better time for this giveaway.

*Last week I was in need of some new under-eye concealer but was not wanting to brave NorthPark. I happened to pop into CVS and spotted the Maybelline Dark Circle Eraser and decided to give it a try. I used this for the first time yesterday and was blown away. It is simply phenomenal and I only wish I had found it sooner. This product costs about a third of what my "luxury" concealer costs and it works SO.MUCH.BETTER! If you are in the market for something new, give this a whirl! Please note I have not been compensated to write about this product, I found it on my own and love it.
*I am going to work on some Halloween printables this weekend. I decided to have a little Halloween party next Sunday so it is time to get busy before I get "Booed"!
That is all for now, I hope you all have a splendid weekend!!!

The most FABULOUS part of the Essie launch party (other than that it was held at my salon...added perk!) was that each a attendee got a manicure with one of the new colors! I debated long and hard, the names left me wanting rainbow nails, but finally settled on Bangle Jangle, a subtle grayish, purple. If you know me well you know I am ALL about pink polish, but today's party was the perfect opportunity to mix things up. I am in LOVE with the color and so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone...my nails look for trendy and stylish!
While we were having our nails done we were also treated to treats. All the frosting on the numerous sweets matched the new Cocktail Bling colors. How fun is that? No detail was overlooked!

I LOVE the way the pink pops against the blue; the print looks just perfect in the gold frame I think. Tres chic in my opinion. It had a happy place on my living area wall and is now waiting to be joined by some more chinoiserie prints.
A huge thank you to The Pink Pagoda for hosting such a fun giveaway! If you live in the Dallas area, be sure to pop into Lost this week. When I ran in on Saturday I was thrilled to see all TPP prints are buy one, get one! Time to stock up on gifts!

I did not get many photos as I was busy chatting away, but here is one off the iPhone of Jessica of a few of us girls. We were lucky enough to score a table close to the stage (and the pasta station!) so we had an amazing view of Lee Ann Womack as she preformed for us. Not only did we enjoy a great show, but since TSRCH turns 90 this year (alongside the Dallas Junior League), there was also lots and lots of birthday cake to go around; YUM!
