It was a fun day for women in Bridge City Saturday at the Community Center. The Bridge City Chamber of Commerce hosted BLISS, a day of pampering, as a fundraiser. Many area businesses that cater to women were represented.

Bette’s Boutique, Serendipity Chicks and Luv’s Lingerie offered a variety of clothing, shoes and accessories from their stores and also presented style shows.

Skin care and make-up were represented by New Beginnings Health Spa, Nu Skin and Beauty Control cosmetics.

CHRISTUS Live Well Women’s Network distributed information on breast health and cancer prevention.

Curves and Fit-Life were onboard. Fit-Life gave a demonstration of the newest exercise craze, Zumba, which mixes Latin dance moves in exercise routines, making it more fun to get your groove on.

Becky McCall offered Juice Plus+ Whole Food Nutrition and the Emu Man was there with pain relief concoctions he makes from emu oil.

Scentsy candles were represented as well as Southern Living at Home, Accents on Design and Whimsical Creations.

Jewelry was offered by Debbie’s Gold Gems and R&D Jewelry and Gifts.

Adrienne Colletti was taking appointments at her display of Colletti’s Photography. She was distributing carnations with a coupon for a free 8×10 with sitting.

Walgreens gave out bags containing lotion and hand sanitizer, just to name a few of the items.

You could have taken care of your aching back or tired feet with massages or energy healing, while sampling Dove chocolates learning of their new party plan sales.

Women feasted on barbecue, fried chicken, hot tamales, shrimp po’ boys, fruit kabobs and more; donated by local restaurants and businesses.

The screen printed goody bags received when women came in the door already held a wealth of freebies, but was almost bursting, once filled with the extra goodies offered by the different vendors. There was bubble bath, bath salts, peppermint foot soak, handmade soap, fingernail files, candy, cookies and chocolate covered spoons. Everything a woman could need to continue the pampering at home.
