DFW Blogger Meetup: The Body Shop

I think of this event as a continuation of our DFW Blogger Meetup from two weeks ago, besides our visit to West Village, Elissa from Dress With Courage set up a visit for us at The Body Shop in Northpark Mall.

 They were kind enough to gift us with goody bags and coupons and allowed us to invade their space with squeals, lots of hugs and our cameras.

One of the highlights? Catered by Chick-Fil-A! I wanted to put some chicken minis in my purse for later but yall know I forgot I'm a lady so I didn't.

I spun the wheel and won a free Chick-Fil-A sandwich so I was a happy camper.

I had never been to The Body Shop before and was pleasantly surprised that they are such a socially conscious company and that their ingredients are all natural. They also have a campaign to Stop Sex Trafficking, I signed the petition and you can participate here.

Chastity from The Curvy Girl's Guide to Style talked about the bronzer that she has from The Body Shop on Twitter and because I'm out of bronzer, I was excited to try it out.

After some waiting and confusion I was put into the capable hands of Keeks (I don't know if this is how she spells it, I'm guessing) and she told me that she was all about the bronzer because she's from Jersey.
While I had visions of (unfortunately) looking like Snookie, Keeks was hooking me up and did a phenomenal job! I am happy to announce that I am now the proud owner of the Baked to Last bronzer and Baked to Last blush. The blush and bronzer add definition and a touch of color to my cheeks and I am so excited about my semi-new look.

Here is Reiko's comment to my post below regarding my nosy co-worker:

Dear Fashionnette-work readers:
Please excuse my dear friend Juanette. Sometimes she gets like this and there's no stopping her. I apologize if she caught you off guard. She does that to me daily. DAILY! Most times she is okay...but she probably ran out of candy. This is what happens when she runs out of candy.

I'm sorry. I will keep her under control as best I can although we live in different cities.

Thank you,


JuaNETTE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stop it!

Gotta love it....

I love how you paired the striped shirt & skirt. Most people (including myself) would have been scared to do that, but the outcome was FAB....especially with the yellow clutch!

Great post!

Wow the Dallas bloggers do it BIG, I love that you guys together so much...it's gotta be fun. We need to do a meet up for Houston and Dallas...BTW love the dress and yellow clutch!

juliette said...

LOVE the outfit. Uh, can you put those earrings in the store? I need them to wear next week.....

Miss Moon the Brooklyn Geechee said...

Can I just say:

1. Chick-Fil-A is one of those places we in the Northeast hear about and always want to try.. I have heard rumors of there being one in NYC, but have yet to discover it.

2. How much do I love the striped-duo, the clutch, the shoes, the hair and EVERYTHING you're rocking?!?!

3. I am so jealous of the awesome Meet-Ups Dallas Bloggers have!! We New Yorkers are going to have to step our game up... or I might have to hop a plane and gate crash one of the future Meet-ups y'all have! LOL

4. I haven't shopped at the Body Shop in ages, but seeing their amazing work to prevent child trafficking, I definitely want to pay them a visit. I am also going to blog about their campaign and of course source you as my inspiration! :)

Peace from Brooklyn!!
