Luxury Beauty Store. The site features 24 brands, including Burberry fragrances, Dr. Brandt Skincare, NARS, Jack Black, Deborah Lipmann, L’Occitane, Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare, Stila, and more.
The shop, which is featured on the home page of Amazon’s main navigation bar, is a marked departure from the more commoditized areas of the Web site. The pages are much cleaner and more visual than a standard Amazon page, and the products - all of which have been photographed in-house - are larger.
Customers can shop by three main avenues: content, brand, or category. In all, there are six categories: Skin Care, Makeup, Fragrance, Hair Care, Men’s, and On Trend, which is based on content and trends created by a team of 12 editors. If you haven't checked it out yet, go!
I'm excited to have an appointment to see Tim Quinn at Neiman Marcus Saturday. I love my favorite Giorgio Armani ambassador. I don't care about having Tim sprinkle "fairy dust" on me. I'll take my time to talk to him about what's trending and what's coming. To make an appointment with Tim at Neiman Marcus Tyson's on Saturday, call Alejandra Paz at 703-761-1600, ext 3275.
To keep up with its competitors, Neiman Marcus has matched Nordstrom's free shipping and free returns for online buyers. No codes are required. It's about time! Will you buy more from them now?
It has been a long week. I did have an epidural Tuesday (shot of cortisone in my spine) to help alleviate the pain that starts in my spine and extends through my hip and into my right leg. I waited until I got to the excruciating stage before I made my appointment. You are only supposed to have two series of thee per year. I'm exceeding that. I do love feeling better. As you know, I can't get my spine replaced like I did my left knee. Too bad, I think.
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.
I'm sad to acknowledge the death of Scott Carpenter, the second American to orbit the Earth. At the age of 88, he passed away after a stroke. Now, of the original astronauts, only John Glenn survives. These were brave men. God speed, Scott Carpenter.
I hope you have a great weekend!
