Isn't Jimmy pretty? He lives with my friends - friends who have been taking great care of me while I've been disabled. Jimmy is learning to appreciate the finer things in life. He became an indoor cat last year, and he was not too happy at first. Now, I think he's loving his life of luxury. He's one fuzzy buddy!
This was a milestone week for me. I drove myself for the first time since my surgery! I had gone off the heavy-duty pain killer, and I figured it was OK, so I drove to my appointment with the surgeon on Wednesday. Do you think I might have been able to get a parking place somewhere in the garage close to the entrance? Nope. By the time I hobbled into his office, I was exhausted. Getting out was the same. The next day, I drove myself to therapy - and got a better parking spot. So, at least I was "fresh" when I started my torture. Next week, I have to start going to physical therapy three times/week, rather than two.
This has also been an exciting week for beauty at my house! With the arrival of my Chantecaille Sea Turtle Palette; lots of Sephora deliveries, which I haven't had time to show you; and my super sales associate bringing me the latest things from Neiman Marcus, I have been a happy gal. It's amazing what a lift the beauty-filled week gave me - especially after being "threatened" with another procedure if I can't fully straighten my knee when I see my surgeon again in a month.
What's new in your life? It's time for The Friday Forum. We use the forum to share information and chat. Did you find any deals you couldn't resist this week? 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. Just make sure to ask any question you might have over the weekend. By Monday, most readers have moved on.
We have busy weekends and slow ones on the forum. I'm always happy if even one reader stops by. Leave a comment, and say hello - even if you don't want to comment on beauty products. If I am notified of any great beauty offers (great, not just good) over the weekend, I will leave word in the comments of this post.
Don't forget that the Smashbox Masquerade Creamy Cheek Color & Brush giveaway contest ends tomorrow night. Make sure to enter. You know what Lady Luck says, "If you don't play, you can't win!"
Thanks for reading Best Things in Beauty! Got anything you want to talk about?
