Beauty Event: Johnson’s Body Care Cause Party, part II

Last weekend I had the opportunity to host a Johnson’s Charity party. I first blogged about the event HERE. It was more than what I ever thought it would be. Aside from having good eats and laughs, the party was able to raise a good amount of money to donate to Dress for Success. You can find out more about this awesome organization here.

I hosted it at my house it would NOT have been as successful as it was had it not been for one of my greatest friends, Ariel. She really helped me out! Here she is sitting by the sign-in table.

Yummy food and drinks…

The sign-in sheet with donation jar. And can you believe EVERYONE actually wore the name tags. Heyyyy!

A total of 16 ladies strolled in and out of my place and I was unable to get pictures of everyone. Shucks! We played Taboo, Apples to Apples and before I knew it, I was giving away a good 30 bottles of polish. Talk about Spring cleaning! My friends were excited to receive my unwanted goods and I was happy to get rid of products that I didn’t even use. Of course everyone had to get get each “deal” confirmed. No way was I giving up Essie’s Mesmerize and China Glaze’s Shower Together. LOL!

Fellow University of South Florida alumnae, Ariel and Ellis rummaging through my blue and green polishes.

Another college BFF…Krystal and her sister Alexis. Many thanks to them for driving from Tampa to attend my little shindig.

Even the law school kids found time to stop by to chit chat and snag a goody bag.

We spent a good two hours screaming and shouting over Taboo. I am a HUGE game board junkie and Taboo is one of my favorites.

The party started at 3 p.m. and people didn’t start leaving until around 8:00 p.m. But they didn’t exactly go home. We all went to…

The fair! Where everyone ended up picking on me because I was too chicken to get on…..everything. LOL! We had such a wonderful time. I mean, honestly….how many times are you able to rally up some of your favorite gal pals, have them donate to great charity, talk beauty and end the night with cotton candy and greasy vinegar soaked fries?

I’ll say it was some party! Thank you to all who attended and a special “thank you” to Johnson’s for making this possible.

    This looks like a really fun time! I wish I was there hehe. The fair looks really cute too – is it a temporary thing or a summer fair?

    p.s. I’ve been known to expose both the dumb side and the angry side of myself when playing Taboo lol. I get real stingy with the timer for the opposite team, and last time I played I referred to Abe Lincoln as the 5th pres of the US… tell me why?
