Grooming

One of my friends is a Mary Kay consultant. She is committed to giving 30 facials in 30 days so another friend and I volunteered. They came to my place for an afternoon of girls' grooming.

I will let anyone clean my face and apply makeup. Well, maybe not exactly anyone.

.... I never had any professional facial done.... But they said i look like i did. ;)
Enjoy the treatment.
The only make up i might wear nowadays is a bit of lip balm.

Shrinky said...

Ooooh, you lucky, lucky girl - I loves me a a bit of pampering, I's does (grin)!

CiCi said...

We had a fun time playing with the products. And all the girl talk too.

CiCi said...

It was an afternoon of pampering indeed. Lots of fun.

"Abby" said...

Oh how fun! I wish I had a friend with a facials project!

CiCi said...

My friend handed me a gift certificate and said she wanted to do something for me as a pick-me-up and we asked the other friend to join and it was a fun thing to do. My face feels so smooth.

How cute is that!!! I never had a facial, but maybe it takes a giraffe to do the job right. I wouldn't mind a back rub, but I don't want anyone working on my feet or my face.

CiCi said...

I like my feet rubbed. We humans benefit from touching. I wouldn't want my face licked but I had fun getting the facial.

LL Cool Joe said...

I wouldn't want anyone near my face I have to say although I'm sure facials are really good for you. :)

Happy Frog and I said...

I can't remember the last time I had a facial, I should book one in really. There's nothing quite like a bit of pampering to make you feel much better. :)

DJan said...

That blue tongue looks... rough! Great picture, and having a facial must be a treat. I've never had one, or if I did I sure don't remember it. :-)

CiCi said...

My face stayed soft for three days. Now she brought me some cleanser and moisturizer of my own.

CiCi said...

For me it was amazing to have the facial and the fun of being with the friends was so good for me.

CiCi said...

I enjoy some pampering projects occasionally. So this was just what I needed.

That giraffe tongue is huge, and I would not like anyone licking my face.

Ms. A said...

I was just about to add that I hoped no licking was involved, and I saw your comment! LOL!

CiCi said...

Ha, wise women think alike.

terri said...

Thankfully, you can have your face pampered without the giraffe and its large tongue!

Cute photo! :-)

oceangirl said...

Oooh a facial would be nice.

Maggie May said...

I love that photo. Glad the giraffe doesn't have to lick you though.

Nuts in May

CiCi said...

Hi Maggie, yes it is a sweet photo. I like how the animal kingdom teaches by example how to get along with other species.

Brian Miller said...

ha a day of beauty and pampering...def go for it...the pic reminds me my nephew used to feed the giraffe out of his mouth...nasty...haha

CiCi said...

Giraffes have always been fascinating to me, watching them navigate with their long necks which at times are an advantage and sometimes make them awkward.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

That sounds like girl time fun!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Those are always fun. Hope you enjoyed it!

CiCi said...

I knew you would like this, Liz. And, yes, it was fun.

CiCi said...

It was actually a blast. If I had known we would have had so much fun I would have asked a couple other gals too. Next time.

Unknown Mami said...

How fun!

Cinner said...

Glad to hear you enjoyed it CiCI, I had it done once from a close friend of mine. I did end up spending too much money, that was when I had some. lol. have a great week.

Rock Chef said...

I guess this is part of that mysterious thing called "Girly Time". My daughter enjoys this sort of thing, my wife less so.

I once asked female readers what this actually was - one reply was along the lines of "I could tell you , but then I would have to kill you".

Anne H said...

My little mother LOVED Mary Kay facial parties!
LOVED them! I think she was never more happy.
Thanks for the great memory!
Glad you are doing well!

CiCi said...

Yep, laughter, goofing off, playing, giggling, and oh yeah, cleansing and moisturizing and being made beautiful.

CiCi said...

The gift certificate she had given me to "lift my spirits" a month ago came in handy when I decided what products I wanted to order.

CiCi said...

I wouldn't want to do this every week but it was so much fun because it was a) just us girls, b) relaxing environment, c) something I haven't done in years, and d) didn't cost me much.

CiCi said...

Way cool that your mother was into Mary Kay. I had never been around Mary Kay products and finding out that I am not allergic to these products has given me a much needed boost. I am even putting on eyeliner occasionally now.

Stickup Artist said...

I don't wear much makeup but I certainly wouldn't say no to a facial and a professional application. Sounds like a lot of fun. Good grooming is both refreshing and important. It is always good to pamper oneself...

Hilary said...

Sounds like a fun afternoon.

CiCi said...

I don't wear much makeup either, lots of times No makeup. But I am enjoying the soft skin on my face since I have used the cleanser and moisturizer.

CiCi said...

Anytime I can laugh and goof off with people I am comfortable with I grab the chance. I am more at ease these days and doing more things of interest.

christina said...

now this sounds like fun!

Joanna Jenkins said...

What a fab photo!

A girly day would like a blast. Hope you had fun and love the results.
