Yummy411: The Pretty Committee August Meet Up

(pic: Shawnta... I'm really gonna get my own cam soon!)
(l-r: Lakia (and her gorge kiddies), SuzieC, Shawnta (her divas in yellow), Nikkia, my sis Toni and me.. ratz! I forgot the golden rule- to suck in. I'm a big girl, but I'm not really 8 months preggers like this pic will lead you to believe )= I guess I missed the memo to wear slimming black.)

August's meet up with The Pretty Committee was at the CCO (Cosmetic Company Outlet) at Arundel Mall. We got some goodies and had a great time. We all were wearing our bronzey summer looks- minus me. My hair project took way too long and I had to skip makeup, but my sis Toni had a great look on that I hope to feature here. Hopefully, I can recreate the look. Here's some of the loot Arundel's CCO has: a good assortment of cream and powder blushes, some Strange Hybrid collection items as well as Holiday 2007. They have quite a few mattenes and slimshines available. They carry a good variety of brow sets, brow shaders and brow pencils.

After we finished there, we went to Chevy's and broke bread (or tortillas, lol) over some Mango Margaritas (que chevere'!). A good time was had by all. Oh, I also hear that I missed out on an impromptu Ulta visit.. wah! I'm sad that kidYums and TeenYummy411 missed out. Next time.. um sometime after our our Cult of Cherry party, lol!! Thanks for being the photographer Maya!
