Product Party!

I recently hosted some lovely ladies, with my frond Jamie Meares, for a cute little dinner thing with the added bonus of being a beauty swap. We got the idea from a friend of mine in NYC who has a group that dines together a few times a year and, at dinner, everyone presents their latest favorite beauty product. The things that's most currently changing their lives and faces lol. I loved the idea and was looking for a reason to get some friends together so, guess what we did! You never know if stuff like this is going to be forced family fun, but I'm here to tell you, everyone was totally there for it. I think (if you're at least my age-ish) everyone is actually interested in hearing what other people are doing to take care of themselves. I think whether it's fitness or mental/spiritual wellbeing or beauty, everyone kinda wants to know how everyone else is "doing it". We had a few girls there who really knew their sh*t and most of us are just normal moderately/well informed consumers looking for stuff that works. Everyone really brought something to the table, we all asked questions and we all left armed with some samples (thanks to Blue Mercury, Parlor, PAINTBASE and Smokeshow) and shopping lists (which we actually had and I'll share as a PDF at some point for y'all to use). I've linked most of the products above but I'm listing out below as well. Please feel free to ask questions or for more recs - if I don't have an answer or something to offer I'm always happy to seek something out! I highly recommend hosting your own product swap, we plan on doing it again!

A few more items of note, we had this bonkers cheese board by Raleigh Cheesy, and beautiful tablescaping by Meares + Furbish Studio. I wore this delightful Ulla dress (similar here). I also scooped this tent which is bonkers and I love it. We also used these glasses which are life changing (and on sale rn), and I will be doing a TED Talk on them.
