At the end of July I got to go to Mary Kay’s 50th Anniversary Seminar. It was so fun and a nice break for me. Plus it was pretty huge, being the 50th anniversary and all.
While I was so sick in the spring and early summer, I pretty much quit fixing my hair or putting on makeup. I was so nauseous that I couldn’t bear to even look at myself in a mirror.
At seminar, I had 4 days to myself, and, let me just tell you, I pampered myself. I pulled out the facial mask and the Microderm Abrasion. I did my nails and put all kinds of product in my hair. It was nice to take care of myself and remember how good it feels. Mary Kay always gives us some of the new products in our registration packet, so I tried some new colors and just had fun hanging out with my girlfriends and learning new things about makeup and myself.
I love learning!
For awards night we had a huge party. Everyone wears their formals/ball gowns this night. I was really wanting a new dress, since my black maternity dress has already partied at MK Seminar 3 times. (Twice on me and once on Clara, cause sharing is what we do!) I found the perfect sparkly navy cocktail dress at Ross’s for only $19. Not only was it sparkly, it wasn’t black, and it had enough room for my starting to show baby bump. Here is a terrible selfie pic.
