A couple years ago, around this time, my friend Celeste and I experienced our first Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Gala and it was super fun. So, a couple of weeks ago, Sara, Celeste and I went to this year’s Gala to get purtied. For $10, you get your makeup done by a professional makeup artist, you get to eat free food (this time it was dumplings and Chinese buns…) and you get a free goodie bag on your way out. And if you purchase anything from the beauty department, it’s 10% off.
My makeup artist was awesome but I can’t remember her name 😦 She asked me if we were planning on going anywhere special after our makeovers and I said “Yes, we’re going next door to Roti Cuisine of India!”. So we went to eat Saag Paneer rotis while showing off our new faces. We rifled through our goodie bag and compared loot and tried to seduce the regulars.
Ugly: All my free perfumes smell TERRIBLE. Whose job is it to say what smells nice? That person has a cold.
Awesome: Fun night out with my ladies doing lady things!! My makeup artist kept messing up my face because I was making her laugh. Worth it.
