Yesterday, I had a divine complimentary one-hour facial by Barbara (from Bergdorf Goodman) at Neiman Marcus Mazza Gallerie. She will be back next week (February 17, I think, but confirm that with Michael Reinhardt if you are local to DC. I highly recommend you go! Michael and his counter partner Andy can be reached at (202) 966-9700, extension 2258.
It looks bright outside. I have Chanel photos to take, but there is significant cloud cover. I'm waiting to see if the clouds burn off mid-day. I really want to show you the new Chanel lipstick, Rouge Coco Stylo Complete Care Lipshine. I need to show you as the Beauty Events start. I've also promised to get new Chantecaille swatch photos. I would have taken them yesterday, but I forgot to take my camera over to Neiman Marcus. If we get socked in with clouds this weekend, I'll feature some fabulous fragrances. I haven't forgotten that comment asking for fragrance features.
For those of you who have enjoyed following Monsieur Guerlain on Facebook, he's back! I'm pleased. He is inspirational, and his knowledge of the Guerlain fragrances is almost unparalleled.
There are some fabulous weekend discounts to be used. The best in my opinion? Beautyhabit is offering 20% off of your $100 purchase with the code LOVE20. The wonderful niche fragrance line Imaginary Authors is offering free shipping with purchases of $30 or more through February 15. Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram have been filled with special offers. If you like certain brands, make sure to follow them on social media to save money.
It's time for The Friday Forum. The Friday Forum has always been an opportunity to share information. Are you using a fabulous product and want to sing its praises? Tell us about it! Did you find a beauty product disappointing? Tell us why! Do you have questions others might be able to answer? We can help! Want to talk about skin care? I'm game. Just use the comments. We have busy weekends and slow ones on the forum. I hope you are ready to share.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Update 2/13: The Saks tote is not silver. It is white with what looks like gold throughout. It's a great bag for summer. The puffy ornament does come off. You will have your choice of blue (best in my opinion), black, or white.
