Weekend Rewind. What's in my Bag?

I am skipping my iTUNESday for today and maybe for a while... who knows!

Time for Weekend Rewind, What's in my Bag?
Your going to be disappointed that I actually didn't have any cute clothes,
accessories, or make-up, but did have some fun memories!

My sweet friend, Lonnie, came over Friday night for pizza and a movie
and I coaxed her into doing a Lush mask with me! We chose to do the
Brazened Honey that claims to polish skin that is in serious need of a boost.
If you didn't read my Lush Haul post... this is a cosmetic store that hand makes
products with fresh all natural ingredients.

So, this is my second mask I have tried that I bought and I have to say I'm not just
sold on them. They are very different b/c they have to be refrigerated b/c the ingredients
are so fresh. I love that part of it, but the consistency is very chunky and a bit messy.
I guess I was expecting greater results... I wanted my skin to just feel amazing, soft,
and bright. hmmm. Maybe my expectations are too high for a $6.95 mask.

We are goofy! I love my Lonns! She is like the baby sister
I never had! We are the same person in many ways!

Then Saturday I went to Morgan Creek Vineyards for the annual
Grape Stomp and wine tasting! This was my first year to go and it was
such a great day! Perfect weather and great atmosphere.
For those of you that are not aware... Morgan Creek is a vineyard/winery in
Harpersville, AL that produces muscadine wine. You can buy their wines at
Publix and other grocery stores across the state.

Here is Alison getting ready to go into the tasting. Doesn't she look
SO cute!

This was the bucket of stomped grapes that we shared!
Ya'll it was the nastiest feeling ever!

We decided to share a bucket to be cute! This is us stomping away!

Our feetsies after. YUCK! If your wondering what shades we have
on our toes.

And again...

What a goofball! She HAD to frolic around.

Saturday night I went over to my friend Valerie's house and got to meet
her oh so sweet aunt Ida Sue who has started selling a skincare line by Rodan and Fields.
You may know them as being the dermatologists that founded Pro-Active for acne
prone skin. Well, they have developed a new line that targets more mature skin and
your skin type. So, this was kind of like a product launch party.

As you can see above they classify your skin into categories of reverse, anti-aging,
unblemish, and smoothe based on a quick 5 question survey describing your skin
and problem areas.

This is my friend Val... she is AWESOME! Love this girl. We used
to work together and I forgot how much I missed her and all our "talks" about
life and relationships and different perspectives. BUT, lucky for us we have
totally reconnected lately and it's been SO much fun!

Anyway, what she is doing in this pic is a technique they call "Rolling." This blue
device she is using is actually patented by Rodan and Fields. You use this device after
you have cleansed your face. With comfortable pressure you roll your entire face and
neck 4-10 times changing directions. After rolling you would then apply the serum or night

So, why roll? What is the point of this?
It is designed to amp up your anti aging results. It is non-invasive skincare roller clinically
proven to safely and effectively condition the uppermost layers of the skin to allow
for maximum benefits.

What does it feel like?
VERY interesting! Don't quote me on this, but I think this device has some kind of needles
in it so it has this tingly feeling that in a way is kind of like a finger prick, which I know
does not sound very pleasant to put on your face, but it doesn't hurt.
Doing this technique allows your creams and serums to not just sit on the surface of your
skin, but go inside where needed.

Another interesting fact:
This product was named by The Today Show as one of Best Anti-Aging Products
for 2011. :) I love The Today Show so this makes me happy!

NOT!! Val just let me where her gorgeous ring during the party!

It was a fun weekend! Good times. Good friends. Great memories.
Thank you God for richly blessing my life.

    2. I look like I'm shaving in the picture above, but I'll suck it up since my Auburn shirt and earrings are now a part of your blog history!
    3. My ring looks gaw-geous on your finger! (and mine!) :)


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
