I love my girlfriends.  Especially my neighbors.  They are my rock when I need them and I’d like to think we are all here for each other.  None of us have a lot of money, however, so any time we can have a girls night in and do something fun is a good night!  Thanks to NIVEA lotion, I was able to throw a super fun, spoil my friends, kind of party on a budget!

NIVEA Spa Party

I headed to my favorite bulk retailer, Sam’s, because I knew that I could find everything I needed on a budget!  I found the NIVEA lotion packs immediately!  I love that they included 2 bottles of NIVEA – possibly the best lotion out there, to be honest – and a purse sized lotion for under $10.  That is a deal, I don’t care how you slice it! Especially since the bottles are the 16.9 ounce ones.  It will take a lot of spa parties to use all of this!

I looked around a little in the personal care section for gels or baths that I could use to make the warm foot bath at my spa party and was happy to see that there was a pretty good selection to choose from.  And then I headed to the adult beverage aisle.  Why, you ask?  Because what Spa Party is complete without mimosa’s!?!

I tooled around Sam’s a little longer, picking up kid essentials like waffles and yogurt, and looking for more fun things for my party.  I chose a meat and cheese tray for snacking that I knew my pals would love! And by pals, I mean me.  I can finish one of those on my own, I won’t lie!

Once home, I made some cupcakes – 3 women in a house with mimosa’s, nail polish and three little girls to rub their feet…  we needed cake! – made the mimosa’s and stuffed my goodie bags.  Each bag had a full sized bottle of NIVEA, the small purse sized lotion, a fun colored nail polish, and a fun nail file!  I just knew my friends would love it!  Think of something like this for your Holiday Gift Guide too!  A NIVEA gift bag! SO fun!

And then the party started!  One of my neighbors, Barbara, was THRILLED that NIVEA was on the table.  It is 100%, by far, her favorite lotion of all times!  So she was pumping it out and rubbing it in before anything else.  We all commented on how it is not greasy and smells so good but is not overwhelming in it’s scent.

As we snacked and drank I filled the tub with warm water and Rose Cream Bath so we could get started on pedicures!  My three angels jumped in and helped my friends with nail painting, calf rubs with the lotion and more!  It was relaxing and fun and so needed with our busy schedules.  Plus the whole party – gifts included – set me back less than $100 bucks! That is a meal out for the 3 of us and no manicure by trained little girls would be included!

Next time you want to show appreciation to your girlfriends for how awesome they are, try a NIVEA Spa Party!  I bet you will enjoy relaxing, laughing and pampering as much as we did!
