Pretty Yourself at CityWalkLA! Sephora and Nectar NOW OPEN!

#CityWalkLA_4.jpg

So there I was, just minding my own business, living my new little life when out of nowhere I get an email that reads: YOU'RE INVITED TO A DAY OF BEAUTY FROM SEPHORA AND NECTAR BATH TREATS AT CITYWALK LA!  When you're in the middle of last week of school madness, commuting and just starting a whole new life for yourself and your kids, a trip to Sephora definitely sounded like a well deserved treat. And what made it all that much better was that the last time I was at City Walk LA I didn't get the chance to stop in to Nectar and I had been dying to check it all out. So, without further ado...

With over 13,000 products from more than 200 brands, the brand new 6,000 square foot Sephora at City Walk LA is big and beautiful and filled with everything you need! Guests can experience services such as Mini Makeovers, Beauty Workshops and the new PERK Hydrating facial at their Skincare Studio.

If you're a Sephora lover then you already know that this is where you will find everything beauty related that you could possibly think of.  As for me, I am just barely discovering what kind of beauty I am. I have always been very simple and natural, but Sephora definitely makes me want to try new things. This right here is my favorite go-to gift, I received one of these sample kits last year and this is how I found my favorite brand and shade of lipstick.

I can wander the aisles of Sephora all day long and learn something new with each step. I am kinda obsessed with eyebrows, coming from someone who doesn't have much brow to work with.

Although Bumble and Bumble is pretty much out of the budget for me. I do love it. My sister-in-law (also my hairdresser) swears by Bumble and Bumble and every time she does my hair I LOVE everything she uses on me. So, now I know and I'm telling all of you, you can buy Bumble and Bumble at Sephora. They even have these cool little trial sizes so you can try different ones before committing.

P.s. I'm telling all of you my favorite items from Sephora. I would also like to let all of you know that my birthday is fast approaching, this August. Yes, I'm a Leo. 

Oh, did I mention I was allowed to bring along a plus one to our day of beauty? I brought my Mama to get her beauty on. She loved getting her little mini makeover and learning how to give herself a smokey eye. You can call ahead and schedule an appointment for a mini-makeover or to get your makeup done for a special event.

And now, onto Nectar Bath Treats, a brand new, unique location that is an experience all in itself. First of all, the amazing scents will summon you in from walking through CityWalkLA. Secondly, you're gonna walk in and think that you're in a bakery, you will want to eat everything that you see.

Nectar Bath Treats creates bakery inspired products that look good enough to eat. Their plant-based and cruelty-free handmade treats include soaps, bath bombs, body scrubs and lotions. Guests can visit the store for a products demo and check out the custom fragrance. The highly Instagram-able store also features a "Donut Love" wall to share that special moment with friends.

The custom fragrance bar is such a fun experience. If you already know what scent you consider your signature scent, they probably have it or something similar. Or, if you're like me and you have no idea, you can try out all of the options until you find what you love. From there you can have body washes, body butter, sprays and soaps all made with your custom fragrance, right there in front of you.

Okay, so how cute would any and all of this be as a gift for a special someone. Who wouldn't appreciate some beautiful, natural, hand-made bath products? Did you see the soaps above? For the crystal fan, the dessert lover, and those duckies are good for little ones too, since they're all natural.

So, you can pick and choose different products and scents or pick up an already pre-packaged gift set.

How cool is this cake? Completely made out of all natural soap. It's a bathroom centerpiece that you can break piece by piece or slice by slice to use as soap. So cool right?

This Summer head down to Universal City Walk and spend the day exploring all of the fun and beauty that CityWalkLA has to offer. Universal City Walk has the new IMAX theater, VooDoo Donuts, Margaritaville and Johnny Rockets- just to name some of our favorites.
