Why Mile High Mamas’ Night Out With Dove Was “The Pits”

There are different kinds of female bonding: In restaurant bathrooms. Watching chick flicks. Sipping freshly squeezed lemonade at the spa.

But Mile High Mamas’ bloggers experienced a different kind of bonding last week: over armpits.

To help women prep our underarms for the big reveal this summer, Dove® Deodorant has partnered with Beverly Hills Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Debra Luftman to develop an at-home spa treatment called the PitiCure™. A PitiCure is to your underarms what a pedicure is to your feet. And Dove invited Mile High Mamas’ bloggers to be among the first in Denver to test it out and also receive complimentary pedicures at Body Massage Wellness Spa in downtown Denver.

We weren’t sure what to expect. Many of us are regulars on the pedi circuit but let’s face it: our underarms get overlooked and for good reason. Who wants to look at them?

Well, Dove Ultimate wants to make them as presentable as possible.The PitiCure is an upper-body treatment that deep cleans the underarms by removing dead skin and impurities while keeping the upper body relaxed and indulged through massage. After getting cleansed, exfoliated and rinsed, we applied Dove Ultimate Beauty Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant.

Gretchen was among the first to experience the treatment and jubilantly announced, “I’ve been ‘Pitified!'”

It was the first time in our lives we bonded over armpits.

And salads. And paninis. And soup. Mad Greens catered our get together with glorious concoctions like the Don Quixote with tender baby greens, juicy mango, avocado, roasted corn & Jack cheese. It was was a healthy, perfect compliment to a Mama’s Night Out.

With the exception of Mad Greens’ brownies.

Because chocolate goes together with armpits like bees to honey.

Mile High Mamas’ Official Takeover of Einstein Bros. Bagels

Friday’s stormy weather made it the perfect day to hunker down with an Einstein Bros. bagel, some of their Darn Good Coffee and relax.

Well, unless you happened to stumble into the Einstein Bros. Bagels on 5131 Kipling Street in Wheat Ridge, in which case you would have encountered a restaurant full of Colorado’s social media moms and their rambunctious children.

Einstein Bros. Bagels hosted Mile High Mamas/Mom It Forward for a casual mid-day meet-up. Our past events have been sans kids and in the evening.

We look a lot different in broad daylight with kiddos bouncing off the balls swiping our food.

Regardless, there was still a lot to celebrate:

1) If you become a fan of Einstein Bros. Bagels on Facebook you can print out a coupon for a free bagel on Fridays before 11 a.m.

2) Their glorious breakfast menu. We ordered

Mama’s Night Out with Water2Wine and the Red Cross (Plus a Discount)

On Thursday, Mile High Mamas congregated at Water2Wine–“The Ultimate Wine Experience.”

Not familiar with the concept? Think “Build-a-Bear” for grown-ups. But without the stuffing.

Located in Centennial, this winery is an actual wine-making operation. The process is simple: choose your grapes (brought in from the finest vineyards from all over the world), process them, let them age and then come back 45 days later to bottle up your wine and make your own personalized label.

Or, if you’re like the Mamas, just have an evening tasting all the various wines (or water for those of us who don’t drink) and socializing.

In keeping with past events, the Mamas know how to have a great time. When you’re talking fermentation, it opens up a can of worms for discussion topics. including the sordid details of lice and television medical dramas like Melissa’s comment:

“I could totally do a tracheotomy just from watching ‘House.'”

Enlightening to say the least. And yes, alcohol may have been involved.

Mile High Mamas partnered with charity-driven Mom It Forward and the

Mama’s Night Out at Sephora Redefines a “GHD” (Good Hair Day)

Every other month, Mile High Mamas throws a Mama’s Night Out to bring Colorado’s social media moms together to collaborate and connect.

And to party. Big time.

On Tuesday evening, the Sephora in Boulder hosted a pamper party wherein I experienced an unprecedented transformation. (Spoiler alert: some women equated my metamorphosis to that of Clark Kent.)

But first things first. A Mile High Mamas party is not a party without a great cause. We partnered with charity-minded Mom It Forward and all attendees donated make-up and beauty products to support SafeHouse of Denver, a women’s shelter that serves victims of domestic violence and their children.

As moms, we were deserving of a few indulgences of our own and Sephora invited some of their leading vendors to help us in our primping process. Bare Escentuals and Urban Decay gave make-up demos. Bliss and Nude Skincare both did express skincare consultations. We found out why the Clarisonic skincare cleansing brush is their top-selling item in the world of skincare with mini-facials, and massage therapists from the Boulder Country Club gave 10-minute chair massages.

Ace photographer Aimee Giese took professional headshots of the women and Tiara Training made everyone feel like a princess by distributing tiaras.
