There's a fall chill in the air this morning! It's time to dry lavender or hydrangea blossoms, something I hope to accomplish this weekend. The weather is predicted to be gorgeous. I am hoping for some rain, though, and I know our friends in Colorado need rain worse than we do.
Then there's tomorrow, a day etched into our collective memories, just like Pearl Harbor was bonded into the psyche of my parents' generation. A lot of years have passed since 9-11, but thoughts of it still bring back the mind-numbing horror and tears, along with recollections of extraordinary heroism. I will be taking a few moments to reflect and remember.
What a crazy-busy and short week this has been! It's hard to believe it's Friday. As the fashion industry gathers in New York for Fashion Week, I'll be celebrating Fashion Night Out with Neiman Marcus at Mazza Gallerie. We'll have fun! I have an appointment with one of Bobbi Brown's superb makeup artists.
My beauty shopping got a little "out of control" this week, with purchases of many new and exciting cosmetics. From online orders (Sephora, Tarte at QVC) to phone shopping with the lovely ladies at Bergdorf Goodman (Jennifer, Nikki), to in-person visits at Neiman Marcus Mazza, I have so much to tell you - and show you. I can't wait!
Charlie sends love and cat kisses to everyone who sent hugs his way. He purred with delight as I read little love notes to him. Or was that because I was feeding him his favorite cat treats? I think he's actually drooling on my keyboard right now.
It's time for The Friday Forum! We use The Friday Forum to share information. Are you using a fabulous product and want to sing its praises? Did you find a beauty product disappointing? Do you have a question others might be able to answer? Want to talk about skin care? Just use the comments. Don't be shy.
We have busy weekends and slow ones on the forum. I'm happy if even one reader stops by. Leave a comment, and say hello - even if you don't want to comment on beauty products. As I always do, I'll leave news of some great beauty offers in the comments of this post. If you want to know where to find nice gifts with purchase, free shipping, and other deals this weekend, make sure to check the comments.
Thanks for reading Best Things in Beauty! Got anything you want to talk about?
