The Lipstick League — week of 8.22.11

Hi Dolls! I’ve really been missing you since I’ve been on a partial vacation, and that explains why posts have been infrequent. I’ll be back in full swing soon, but until then—I’m going to enjoy what’s left of the summer! Yesterday, it was 110° where I live, so I’m pretty sure this weekend’s activities will keep the husband and me inside somewhere that’s very cool. To all of you lovelies who are on the east coast and affected by hurricane Irene, I hope you’re reading this from somewhere safe and sound. I know how scary hurricanes can be—I went through several of them when I was living in Florida, those were some of the scariest times of my life. I’m really hoping the storm slows down and loses strength for you all—especially since you all haven’t had the best week. An earthquake and a hurricane in the SAME WEEK? That’s crazypants! I’m thinking of you.

Question of the week: What has you most excited for fall, beauty product or otherwise?

Answer: Okay, the question said “beauty product or otherwise,” so I’m going to pick otherwise! Next month, my grocery store will put out cinnamon stick wreaths and brooms for sale in the floral department for fall, and that’s when I purposely enter through the door on that side of the store—just so I can get a whiff of them! I’ve always wanted to buy one for decoration, but I’m afraid our cats might try to chew on them. I absolutely love all of the scents of fall and winter! I can’t believe it’s almost here already. What are you looking forward to this fall?
