Fancy Nancy Party with TownleyGirl

This review is based on my opinion. I was provided the sample free of charge by
TownleyGirl.  All ideas and opinions are my own. 


I've teamed up with TownleyGirl to throw an ooh la la manifique Fancy Nancy party! 

Fancy Nancy is a huge hit with little girls ( and this mom too!).  From her fancy clothes to her fancy vocabulary words, Fancy Nancy is every little girl's BFF! 

We decided to throw a little posh get together with my daughter and a few of her friends. They loved painting each other's nails, dressing up and enjoying a few sweet treats. 

Each little guest received a pair of the fanciest glasses I could find and a Fancy Nancy Mega Accessories Kit which included lip balm, sparkly gems, press on nails and adorable hair clips.

The girls LOVED these darling lip gloss favors from the 4 pack lip gloss with case and were so excited about all the fabulous flavors like bubble gum, cotton candy, grape and rose. Of course all the lip glosses are filled with lots of shimmer and glitter!

The Fancy Nancy kiss it paint it set is filled with an assortment of nail polish, lip glosses, nail stickers and a jumbo sticker. It all comes packaged up in this super cute water case that when shaken, tiny silver hearts float around. You can bet the girls were thrilled with that!

How adorable is this Fancy Nancy very fancy lip gloss set?! The girls loved the pretty case the lip glosses came in and had so much fun trying on all the shimmery colors.

The girls spent the afternoon reading from their favorite Fancy Nancy books, practicing a few fancy French words and of course, painting their nails in the fanciest colors they could find.

We had a ball at our manifique Fancy Nancy party and we hope you did too!

Thanks for stopping by and thanks so much to TownleyGirl for all the tres chic party favors!
