Mirror, Mirror at the Spa... Yes!
I got chosen to host some of my best girls for a spa and pamper me party with a Mirror, Mirror theme! Since I'm not home, I'm going to be hosting the party at my sister's house!
Beyond watching this season's hottest DVD release, we're going to pamper ourselves... I've got plans for mani/pedis and also will have a supply of some great homemade recipes... like these great suggestions from my party sponsors:
Reduce Those Evil Wrinkles
The queen hated her “crinkles” so she turned to home remedies to help minimize them. We suggest cutting seedless grapes, then crushing them to apply to face and neck. Repeat daily. The antioxidant properties of the grapes remove pesky ‘crinkles!’
Snow White Eyes
Green tea contains antioxidants and placing a damp green tea under each eye can sooth tired eyes and reduce bags and dark circles. Adding cucumber slices or grated potatoes over closed eyes will also reduce puffy-looking skin. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and poof, magically, clear and whiter eyes!
For a quick and easy way to brighten your smile, mash a few strawberries in a bowl and add ½ teaspoon of baking soda. Coat teeth with the mix and leave for five minutes. The malic acid acts as an astringent and removes stains. Be wise not too use too often (an evil queen trait) because regular use could damage your tooth enamel. Brush again with normal toothpaste to remove the mix. Happy smiles!
To get Snow White’s shiny and smooth hair, condition your hair by heating a ½ cup of mayonnaise and a mushed banana in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Apply to dry hair and cover with a plastic bag. Leave the mixture on your hair for 20 minutes. Remove the plastic bag and rinse your hair with warm water then shampoo as normal.
Skimmed milk powder makes a great face wash as it gently exfoliates your skin and leaves it soft. This is suitable for all skin types and is likely Snow White’s favorite cleansing method!
I also plan to make a homemade salt hand scrub that is a wonderful way to start our mani-pedis!
I haven't figured out what I'll be serving to eat and drink... if you have suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
