Favorite Things Party

Okay, so for all of you pinterest lovers I am sure you have seen the Favorite Things Party from A Bushel & A Peck posted all over (and over) on your boards.

The premise of the party is to bring five of your favorite things $6 or under and you will go home with five things. 

Well, my friend Iris was hosting bunko last week and was looking for an idea and I shared this one with her. She thought it sounded fun, too, but we changed it up a bit.  We had everyone bring a gift $5 and under and then traded them Dirty Santa style.  It was so fun and everyone is really creative!

Here is what the group brought:

(what Iris and I both brought – ha!):

TreSemme Dry Shampoo. I would love a review on this! I wash my hair every day and it takes FOREVER to dry.  Like 20 minutes.

 

EOS Lip Balm – dying to try this, too!

I went home with these two items and you know how I love me some coffee creamer!

These weren’t the exact tea towels, but one of the girls brought Halloween tea towels.  Cute!

I think that was it…I am going off my poor memory here, so there may have been a few more things.  Definitely a fun and inexpensive way to get the girls together!

  4. That sounds like so much fun! I have use the Tresseme (sp?) dry shampoo, and I like it! I have really oily hair and usually HAVE to wash every day, but with that I can go a day in between. A lot of people like that Tigi Rockaholic or whatever, that is like $20 and lasts for about 5 days. I actually like the Tresseme better than that and it's way cheaper and lasts longer! :)

  5. All of those are great gifts! I've used the dry shampoo and I like it but I prefer the John Freida volumizing dry shampoo - I noticed with the Tresemme one it squirted our pretty white and was kind of a pain to get the white out.

  6. I use the Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Dry Shampoo and LOVE IT. It also takes me forever to dry my hair so this has been a lifesaver. I’ve tried a couple other ones but this one is my favorite…making my hair have the not so greasy look :) and less times to blowdry! Just spray, let is sit, brush, fix and go!

  9. I love the tresseme dry shampoo! Seriously ... its the greatest stuff ever especially now that I have short hair and have to actually style it as opposed to ponytail it on late days! :)
