The most fun thing of the night was the Goodie Bag! On they way out, each guest was given a nylon Real Simple tote bag with a copy of the July issue, Bacardi glass rimmer in Mint (perfect for mojitos), a small red zipper pouch, and my two favorite items
1. Essie Nail Polish in Real Simple. This color is the perfect light pink neutral (very similar to the famous and popular Ballet Slippers)
2. Fresh Cosmetics Sugar Lip Gloss in Sugar Shag. I was unfamiliar with this line and now I am a FAN! I love the gloss. Looking at the color I was nervous because it is a bright scarlet. However, it goes on quite shear and is the perfect petal pink. The texture and smell are really great too. I am definitely going to stock up on this.
