Benefit Night for Emma

Thanks to all our sponsors that made this possible! The benefit night for my friend Emma was a huge success. We had over 175 attendees and made over $5,000 for the family. It was a great way to celebrate Emma's birthday by remembering her and the friendships we've had. As you have read in my previous posts, my friend Emma was the victim of a pedestrian hit and run in November, her condition is still serious and we hope and pray for her recovery.

This turned out to be such a nice event. I wish I wasn't so busy helping with the food and could have taken more pictures, but I'm so glad everything turned out so nicely. We were also able to get a signed Seattle Sounders ball that we gave to Emma's son, as that is a fond memory he has of his mom, going to games. Thank you all again for your support! Please check out these great companies!!


First off I have to say how much I love Kimberly and Darrell at YBF-Skincare! I've worked with them in the past and I love their products, I buy them myself because I know they work! When I started organizing the silent auction for my friend I thought I should contact some of the sponsors I have worked with in the past. I heard back from Kimberly right away. They immediately sent out 3 baskets worth of products. I'm so glad to have had them as a sponsor for my friends event. As I said I love Kimberly and Darrell, they are real people that take pride in and run their own business, they interact with their fans daily on twitter and facebook.

YBF Products: . Made for both men and women of any age. Their products contain high levels of antioxidants, skin enhancing peptides, and botanical extracts. They use active ingredients such as spin trap, nutmeg butter and other extracts. There are no added perfumes. Their products just naturally smell amazing! Their products are pumped out in airless pumps, which allows for minimal preservatives.

Some of the products I love:
Balance:$45 regulates shine, calms irritation and encourages clear skin. It calms your skin and absorbs excess oil, it fights against new breakouts as well as helps decrease the duration and damage of existing breakouts. I've been using balance for years now and nothing helps keep my face under control like Balance does.

Quench Lip Treatment: $15. Everyone must have this!! It's the best lip balm I have ever tried. It really makes your lips soft and beautiful. Not only does it make your lips feel good but it also keeps your lips naturally full, bright and youthful-looking. You might think $15 is a lot for lip balm, but let me tell you, it works so well, you don't have to apply it as often as other lip balms. If you want to try YBF-Skincare to see if it work, try this one, it's amazing!  

Please stop by YBF-Skincare's site and look around. Try their products. I guarantee you will love it!
Like them on Facebook and Twitter. They are often running promotions and publish them there.

Nick Chavez Beverly Hills

I was completely overwhelmed with Nick Chavez Beverly Hills generosity in donating to the silent auction for my friend. They said they'd send some products for me to make a basket with. When the box arrived I had tears in my eyes. I could feel of their love and support for our cause. I'm so grateful. They provided enough product for 6 baskets! (Picture of the auction night coming soon!)

I contacted Nick Chavez because I've worked with them in the past and loved their products. I actually purchase and use their products daily.

Some of my favorites are their shampoo, conditioner and hairspray. They smell amazing, the shampoo and conditioner make my hair so soft and silky. The hairspray keeps my hair in place and doesn't leave residue in my hair.

Help for a Friend

If you follow me on Facebook you may have heard about my friend. She was crossing the street and hit by a drunk driver who was doing donuts in the street. He hit a car, hit her and drove off. She sustained many injuries and may never be the same. She is the young mother of 3 wonderful children. You can read the full story here:

I am currently working on a silent auction and dinner in her behalf. I'm overwhelmed with the love of my blog sponsors who have offered to donate to the auction. I will be doing a special spot light on each of them as we get closer to the event.

My continued prayers for this sweet family.
