Saks Fifth Avenue: Bloggers Breakfast & Beauty Week

IMG_4863

Hello, my fabulouses! I attended the most fantastically fabulous bloggers breakfast this morning at Saks Fifth Avenue in Birmingham, Alabama! While at the breakfast, I learned about some hot beauty trends for Fall 2013…oh, a fashionista can never have too many fall fashion pieces and makeup ideas!

S5A’s beauty specialists Tamarous Reynolds and Kimberly Crawford showed us how to MASTER THE LOOK with some of fall’s hottest makeup trends like phenombre lip and the nymph glow. Can you guess who the model for the event was? The VIP’s MOM! Ahh, it was so awesome getting to see my mom dolled up by S5A Birmingham’s makeup gurus!

Due to the fact that my mom has a strict "no photo" policy...I only have this one " mom approved" photo to show y'all. Notice that she is barely in it.

One of my favorite items in the goody bag is the "Weekend Eye & Cheek Palette" by Bobbi Brown. Fashionistas can never have too much eye shadow!

I love bubbles. Always have, always will…and when I discovered that there were “perfumed bubbles” by L’Eau De Chloe, I was immediately intrigued…
Me: “Mom, there are scented, ‘big-girl’ bubbles in this swag bag.”
Mom: “Abby…do not blow those bubbles inside.”
Oh...bubbles are so much fun!
