This week, I wasn't able to write as often as I would have liked. I spent an entire day on Mom's doctor visits and lab work. Then the next day it rained. I got pretty wet picking up her prescriptions, and, of course, I couldn't take photos. I was able to post yesterday, the day I went over to Neiman Marcus to teach a friend how to use Instagram. Today, we have very cold sunshine. I hope to get some photos shortly.
I also had a couple of preliminary job interviews by phone and hope one comes through. I am ready to go back to work. Charlie will be lonesome, though. I wish I could work at home.
I was able to see and test some new items. I must tell you about Le Métier de Beauté's new skin care, introduced in time for Neiman Marcus' Beauty Event. The tote this year comes in gold and orange. Although I'm not an "orange person," I'd love to have the orange one. It looks like Hermès.
Chanel has a gorgeous new line of slim lipsticks. I must also feature them. There's one shade that's perfect for me. I'm told that the Dior items have blown out of the store. As usual, Dior sent only three of each SKU. How do they expect to sell makeup to women who want to try before they buy? I just don't get it.
Speaking of Le Métier de Beauté, they have a fabulous Kaleidoscope that will be a gift with a $350 purchase for women. I have an in-store photo, but I'd rather freeze and go outside to get proper photos.
FeedBlitz has been having trouble with its e-mail notifications. I don't think you saw my post yesterday on TATCHA's new lipstick unless you were browsing. They say they are back to normal now, so I hope you will see my "new post" notice today. You may be notified of two features. I have to photos from Chantecaille's Spring 2016 Collection, and I'll be writing it up shortly. Save your spring beauty 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.
I'll be back soon.
