There are few flowers blooming right now, but the beautiful hellebores are. Known to some as the Lenten Rose, this gorgeous plant delights me when it blooms. The photograph was taken in my garden, where it is supposed to be 70 degrees today - while I'm at work!
This was another fun week of beauty deliveries at my house! I hope we enjoy some sunshine this weekend so I can get some good swatch photos for you. I've got many nice things to tell you about, including the new Shiseido and Josie Maran products that I promised to cover last week! I never made it. If only there were more hours in a day. I know next week should be filled with new makeup. I'm expecting to see the new colors from Dior, and maybe some from Chanel too. Later today, I'll have a treat for you: a sneak peak at a new Bobbi Brown foundation. I'm wearing it to work today.
For those of you who have been keeping up with my post-surgery progress, I am going to physical therapy twice/week, and my therapist continues to help me improve. He's actually helping me a bit with my right knee, which had started to bother me again - for the first time since I became bionic in the left knee. I was hoping my right knee would stay "quiet." It had until a substitute therapist had me do some exercises that hurt it. I guess that was too much to expect for it to stay pain-free, with no cartilage in it.
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 two great giveaway contests going. The first, for Tarte's Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Illuminating Serum ends tomorrow night at midnight. Make sure to enter at this link. I started the Bare Escentuals contest for one of four new bareMinerals skin care goodies last night. You should enter at this link before the deadline on March 25.
Thanks for reading Best Things in Beauty! Got anything you want to talk about?
