This morning, I'm taking Charlie over to see his doctor. He had a GI bacterial infection about a month ago, and the antibiotics appeared to knock it out of him. Then it came back about a week ago. This time, the antibiotics are not working swiftly, and his appetite of "off." I hope there's nothing wrong with my boy, but I think he needs to see his doctor so that I can ask if there's anything else that might be ailing him. Right now, he's sitting in my lap - purring while he snuggles - as I write.
This has been a crazy news week, with Beyoncé singing the Star Spangled Banner a cappella to hush the never-ending speculation about her performance at the Inauguration (what a voice!) to the Super Bowl commercials and the ridiculous criticism of ads that will air. First it was the VW ad, which I found to be in good humor and almost a tribute to easy-going Jamaican manners; next it was a guy on a camel who couldn't get to the Coke bottle as quickly as others with faster modes of transportation; now it's a model kissing a nerd for Go Daddy (salacious, isn't it?). Have we become so politically correct that we can't take a joke?
On the beauty front, I have a lot to show you this weekend. I hope you'll stop back. I have the photos, so I'm not dependent on the weather - and it's a good thing. The seven-day forecast shows a four-day stretch of clouds, starting tomorrow.
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 to enter this week's giveaway contest. The NARS Andy Warhol Walk on the Wild Side set is pretty cool. The deadline for entries is tomorrow, Saturday, February 2, at midnight. I'll be posting a new, hosted contest tomorrow morning. So make sure to check it out - and enter.
