Yummy411: The Pretty Committee's First Meet Up!

(photo: Shawnta, thanks girl lol!)
So The Pretty Committee's first meet and greet went down this Saturday at CoCo Sala, one of DC's premiere dessert restaurants! This month the group consisted of Shawnta (Divine Rae), Me (my teen beauty of Yummy411, not pictured here), Jennifer ( Juvenescent), Nikkia (Slvrlips) and SuzieC (Facepaint 101). The scene was chic and classy. We nibbled and chatted. Blogs, makeup, eyebrows, blush, hair, shopping- we gabbed about it all. It was so much fun to see these chicas in live action and out of the computer LOL. Such a surreal experience. Good times, good times.

Shawnta had to leave us to head back to Baltimore, but Unrealistic Designer (not pictured) joined us and we moved the party to Nikkia's pad. If we didn't get enough makeup talk and chatter at CoCo Sala, we really did it up at Nikkia's! Let's just say I needed some double shots of espresso the next day for my long day I had ahead.

(I'll recreate Saturday's look for some pics that I neglected to take.)

Next month, cap off the summer in bronze looks at our August meet up? Interested? Email me!
