Today is a very busy day for me. I just came home from a relatively early dentist appointment, will go out mid-day for an epidural (second in a series of three), and then have a 3:30 conference call - right about the time the heavens are predicted to open up and dump another one inch of snow on us. Snow and rush hour do not mix well in the DC area, so I'm glad I will be home, safe, and watching the traffic/accident reports with my purring cat.
You probably know that I love Kilian Hennessy's fragrances. This week, I read about his expansion plans in WWD. At the end of last year, By Kilian opened its first standalone store, a 756-square-foot space at the Crocus City Mall in Moscow. Hennessy confirmed his plans to open stores in Paris and New York and said he is currently hunting for space. That will make Kilian's fragrances more accessible across the world. Just a little trivia...the article also said that Rihanna pre-purchased two of the scents, In the City of Sin and Good Girl Gone Bad, at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. That plus the news that Tim Quinn (Giorgio Armani) did Dr. Jill Biden's makeup for the Inauguration was my celebrity news of the last few days.
It's time for the Friday Forum. I love this part of our week. What new products did you discover this week? Did you find any deals you couldn't resist? 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? What's new in your life? Just use the comments. Don't be shy. Just make sure to ask any question you might have over the weekend. By early the next week, most (not all) readers will have moved on.
Don't forget this week's giveaway contest for Benefit's Ticket to Glossytown Lip Shine Set. I think it's a great set. The deadline for entries is tomorrow, Saturday, January 26, at midnight.
