Whew! You guys, I just read an article that parts of South Dakota and Wyoming just experienced the earliest snow storms in years. They dumped up to 20 inches of snow in parts of Wyoming on Wednesday and Thursday, and sent overnight temperatures plummeting into the 20s in some areas.
I hate to say it—but it just hit noon here in Los Angeles on this September day, and it’s already a smart 101°. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry! Especially considering that I’m staring at both fall and holiday collections on my desk right now, and I’m pondering if it’s too early to post winter collections. Do you still want to see them early? Let me know!
Question of the week:
When a beauty product is labeled “Limited Edition” (LE), are you more inclined to purchase it?
Answer: Hmm. Yes, and no! I’d like to think that I don’t purchase items specifically because they’re deemed “limited edition”, but there are often items in those LE collections that are hard to come by, so I pick them up. Sometimes, it’s just a collector’s item thing for me. Like when brands collaborate with pop culture references, etc. But at this stage, I don’t buy things solely because they are LE. When I was younger, I definitely did! The second an LE MAC lipstick palette came out during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I was all over it. Just because it was limited edition!
