Champagne, Sweets and Chanel

When your Friday night starts at a Chanel makeup launch, you know it is not only going to be a great night but an incredible start to your weekend.

On Friday from 6-9pm, Kahlana Bradfield (InStyle magazine Beauty Director) and Bloomingdale’s treated an exclusive list of attendees to new eyes and tips from Chanel National Makeup Artists as they launched the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra eyeshadow. The five different shadow sets are inspired by the iconic tweeds of Chanel.

I’m lucky to have some Chanel cosmetics in my beauty rotation and completely agreed with Kahlana when she said she often looks to Chanel for their thoughts on beauty and color.

While I did not partake in the Champagne or the sweets (I know! I know!), I loved the eyes Cody styled for me using Tisse Chambon. He created the classic look for me but each of the shadow quads have four looks that are provided with tutorials on the Chanel website.

Chanel National Makeup Artist Sterling Williams was in attendance and shared a wonderful tip about “dropping our chin” for photos (like celebs do on the red carpet) because not only do the photos come out better (a win for all of us, right?!), the eyes (and the makeup adorning them!) can be accentuated.

As a fun little treat, during the event we were able to use an Instaprint station to print photos we put on social so anytime #100percentBloomies or #EyesRedefined was used as a hashtag it printed out. It made for a fun keepsake from the evening as well.

Sharing Guilty Pleasures with Chili’s at Home

Mondays are usually my stay in night. With upcoming Fashion Week that will probably change but for the most part I can be found on my iPad and/or in front of my television around 8PM on Monday nights.

Guilty Pleasures With Chilis #ChilisAtHome

But the last few weeks I’ve been partaking in some of the most guilty pleasures ever. It started with a visit to a local Chili’s with my sister for lunch. We had many laughs and many glasses of lemonade.

And then I found out Chili’s launched Chili’s at Home in the freezer section of Walmart so the tasty meals we ate at the restaurant could be created at home — quickly and affordably! So that’s just what I did.

ChilisBaconMacNCheese #ChilisAtHome

I brought home the Chili’s at Home Bacon Mac n’ Cheese and devoured it while watching the latest episode of Bachelor in Paradise. You know what you get when you pair snarky reality show nonsense with delicious bacon goodness? A perfect Monday night!

Join me in my guilty pleasure Monday night and get a $1.00 off coupon for a Chili’s at Home meal! It would be a ridiculously cheap meal if you picked one up using the coupon!
