What i Heart Now: Lipstick

“Come here and give me a kiss!” those old farts used to say to me. Cheek pinching ensued soon after. “Yuck!” was my remark to those wrinkly folks, wiping my cheek of that chalky, nasty lip junk that was never colored inside the lines, pun intended. That’s what I used to think of lipstick. Then the Wall Street Journal published an article where the author had a shocking experience. Looking through a year’s worth of photos, she chose four that she liked. Four. Her resolution after looking at the photos and realizing (but accepting) that she was aging was to slather on some lipstick for future photo ops. I read the article the day I photographed “How i Wore It: Comfy and Cozy.” “Hmmm…” I thought, “let me try this out.” So, I walked three blocks to CVS, picked a sultry dark brown shade, and started snapping.

Weekend

My dearest loves, I hope you have a fabulous, fabulous weekend. Are you doing anything, well… fabulous? I had the day off from work yesterday and I spent it with my aunt Ginny and grandma Mimi. We chatted lots, lunched once, and putzed around too much. It was absolutely great! And now it’s Saturday and I still have two more days until the week begins (yay!).

Sounds magnificent, right? See you on Monday!
