Last Tuesday I had the pleasure of attending Holt Renfrew's Powder Puff party, which was billed as "the beauty event of the season." I'm not a beauty-product fanatic, but the $25 ticket included free beauty services such as eyebrow treatments, facials, and manis, plus it could be applied against a purchase of $75 or more, so how could I say no?!

|My stuff from Diptyque! It all smells amazing|
As we inched closer to the spinning wheel, we figured out there was a prize guaranteed with each spin: landing on the pink "Powder Puff" sections meant a powder puff, landing on the black Mercedes Benz logo (one of the event's sponsors) yielded a sample sized nail polish, and landing on the only white section meant you walked away with a "grand prize" of sorts. Spinning that wheel was quite nerve-wracking! Allison walked away with a gorgeous red nail polish, and I lucked out and landed on the grand prize section! I chose bag of Diptyque goodies, which contained a mini candle in "Figuier," and samples of "Lait Frais" hand lotion and "Philosykos" Eau de Parfum. They all smell amazing...I might have to start saving up for some other Diptyque products.
