The Lipstick League: Week of 12/10/12


As I sit down to write this morning’s edition of The Lipstick League, my heart still feels heavy from the horrific events of last week in Newtown, Connecticut. When I was watching SNL last night and they opened the show with the tribute of children singing ‘Silent Night’, it took all of my power just not to LOSE IT. So I hope you won’t mind me skipping the week’s fun commentary for this TLL edition, and hope you’ll join me in sending love and prayers to all of those affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy.

Mashable recently posted 5 ways you can help Sandy Hook victims. Hope you’ll take a look. And if you have any other suggestions with how to help, please leave your comments below! We’d love to help people come together.

With love,
Amber
