Spoil Your Little One's at the Kids Spa & Boys Video Lounge

So, recently after discovering that birthday parties for kids were pretty much taking over my life! From going to Chuck-E-Cheese or "Pump it Up" I realized that was the only "fun" activity most parents love. I also thought it would be fabulous to do something different to celebrate your little one's. Although I'm a mother a God Mom/World's Greatest Aunt (I kid, I kid) I love spoiling the little one's. As adults we tend to spoil ourselves at the spa and I discovered a very chic and posh spa just for the little one's. 

Little princesses can enjoy facials, pedicures, manicures, hip hair styles and giggles with their friends in one room. While in another room little princes could play all the video games known to man, enjoy playing basketball at their mini court, and indulge in plenty of food. This year try something different to spoil you little one's I'm sure this will be a fun time for ALL!!
Price for Packages at Spoiled and Rotten Kids Spa & Boys Lounge:
5 Kids package would be $299.00
10 kids package would be $395.00
15 kids package would be $500.00
20 kids package would be $625.00 – each additional child for each package would be $35

**Check out a clip from Kimora Lee's Life in the Fab Lane as Ming and Aoki Lee get beautified! This is a perfect way to bond with your little mini you**

MAC Pink Friday for Black Friday

This week should be dubbed "Nicki Minaj Week" as this has been an exciting and remarkable week for her! Earlier this week (Tuesday) she released her first official album entitled "Pink Friday". Today MAC launches their new limited edition lipstick color in a collaboration with the beautiful rapper, which is also named after her album. The cotton candy pink shade will only be available for sale to the public for four specific days, while supplies last: November 26, December 3, December 10, and December 17.

Minaj's bold, intriguing, flirtatious style,  her hot pink hair and her love for MAC's Pink Nouveau lipstick color had a close hand in the design of the lipstick.

The color is available at select MAC cosmetic retailers and online at http://www.maccosmetics.com/

So while your out doing your Black Friday Shopping, make sure you pick up this HOT color and add it to your collection! I know I will!

Beat the BLACK FRIDAY Madness: Shopping Tips

For many, Black Friday is the BIGGEST shopping day/event of the entire year. With every store offering sales and markdown galore, shopping can be extremely chaotic and overwhelming! Because we here at Ms. S&G care about our readers and their well being, we decided to give you some pre- black friday shopping tips to help you beat the lines and crowds and come out a winner!!

  • Pre-plan & Have a strategy/plan- Before you go out you should do as much planning as possible. First you should start off by deciding which products you want to buy. This will help you narrow down which stores you want to target. I would suggest you target your most wanted items first, those you know which will sell out quickly (i.e. Flat screen TV's, Cameras, Appliances, etc.). To prevent impulse purchases I would suggest bringing a list and sticking to it. This way you won't get distracted and over-spend.
Here are a few links on black friday deals that will help you with your pre-planning.
  • Shop early- The early bird gets the worm and in this case the early bird gets the best goods and deals. Many stores are open 24 hours or open at 5am and offer certain deals during a special set time (usually 5am-10am or noon). So the earlier you shop, the more you save!
  • Buddy system- Camping out at stores and standing in those long lines can be quite overwhelming for just one person. That's why I suggest taking a buddy along. You can take turns holding each others spots for bathroom breaks or to step out of line to grab other items.
  • Wear comfortable clothes/shoes- While we all like to look good, this is definitely not the day to wear your favorite Christian Louboutins or Steve Madden platforms. You want to be as comfortable as possible while you scramble frantically to shop, dodge angry shoppers and maybe even stick-and-move if you have to! :). I suggest a cute track suit and sneaker. 
  • Online deals: If you refuse to get caught up in the mall madness, online shopping is your best bet. Many retailers offer great online deals as well and also have free shipping. This gives you the ability to stay home and shop right from the comfort of your own home, without dealing with the hassle! 
  • Be patient: Black Friday shopping is chaotic and overwhelming so in order to have a successful black friday, keep your temperament and try to be patient with workers and other shoppers as well. Because of past black friday incidences, many stores have heighten security and will be strictly enforced just in case people get to unruly.

Good luck and Happy Shopping!!
