I am sending kiddos off to school this morning, and I'm (shockingly) a bit of an emotional-mama- mess. (Betcha didn't see that coming! Ha!) First baby bravely heading into middle school, and Ava in her final year of elementary. I'll be running all around today trying to keep myself busy and not think about it, even though my hoodlums nearly drove me crazy all weekend long with excitement, noise and fighting. (In that regard... it was a long summer, y'all.) That said, I could really use a bit of alone time and some much needed girl time. I think all my girlfriends are kind of feeling this way too, because my book club is currently plotting how we can manage a weekend get-away in November to a nearby ski resort town. Is there anything more heart-lifting than girls night out with some of your favorite peeps? (If you've got chocolate and girlfriends you don't need therapy, right? That's what I always say. )
I have shared a couple of the fun makeup tutorial videos from Almay in the past (date night here, and weekend look, here) and and I couldn't be happier to share their third installment here today. It's all about GIRLS NIGHT OUT. I bet you probably need a girls night out too. We all do, right? So kick back with me, and enjoy these great products and tips by Almay and Kate from The Small Things blog, so you can look polished and put together the next time you go out with your besties!
And I'm going to do my best not to cry all my mascara off this morning, as I send my two babies off to different schools. Because who am I kidding here with all this talk about "needing to get away."
I'm just saying. Ha!
