One of the products I’ll wholly endorse without fail is SoftCup. This product changed my life… at least my week with Marilyn. No, I don’t call really call my period Marilyn. What am I? 12!? (The movie was reviewed by The Movielicious and it stuck in my head. RIP Movielicious!) I think I’ve talked a little bit about SoftCup and its awesomeness in past posts.
Like any new product, it takes a little bit of finagling to get it right. But once you get the hang of it, this product just makes life easier. You’re not rushing to change menstrual products or looking for a bathroom. I don’t know about you, but that’s a major plus. I recommend this product. I use it. I buy it. I love it.
I was invited to a pre-Emmy spa retreat at none other than Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Adrienne Maloof‘s house. [Who's housssssse? Ronnnnnnn's houuuuuusssse!] I like RHOBH. I think it ranks up there with Atlanta, another favorite of mine. I don’t have a DVR, but I’ll try to catch the episodes on on-demand.
Warning: My photos will not do the house nor the entire space justice. It’s massive. To get to the house, you’ve got to wind your way up the canyon road and guard shack. I’ve lived here all my life and couldn’t believe the canyons were carved out to build private homes. It’s its own little valley – totally secluded and quiet.
After we checked in outside, we were directed to head to the back of the house and the backyard. There were several sponsors and exhibitors including ZING Vodka, OMG! cases, Bliss Spa, Colorescience, Yoplait Greek Yogurt, and The Painted Nail. I’m missing a few more, forgive me. I saw jewelry and handbag exhibitors as well as a spray tan tent!
Unfortunately the sign up lists to get a makeover, manicure, or spray tan were super long, and we probably wouldn’t have made the cut. Fortunately, Bliss was available for a hand massages, which I appreciated, being a desk jockey. Servers with trays of light food and mini cupcakes – thumbs up for feeding guests, especially during this hot and sunny day!
While chomping on mini cupcakes, we spotted Kyle and Kim Richards with Faye Resnick. Kim is teeny tiny petite! We also spotted Jamie Lynn Sigler and another actress whose name I can’t remember. Adrienne was rumored to be in her home prepping. We missed her when we waited for the valet to pick up our cars.
All in all, a fun way to spend an afternoon at a house I’ve seen on TV. And it’s not a set!
Big thanks to SoftCup who invited me to this retreat! You gals always put on great parties while educating and entertaining guests.

The fine print: This party was hosted, and this blog post is still my honest opinion. Duh.
