Retail Therapy

Admittedly, I've been stressed more than usual as of late. And I'm sure there are some ways of coping that are healthier than others. And this past week, I am fairly certain I engaged in activities that would fall into the unhealthy category. After a client meeting in NYC, I took the opportunity to meet my sorority sister and confidant (who happens to share my initials now that we are both married). We indulged in a little beauty shopping, which ended with the purchase of a simple tube of Bobbi Brown lipstick in Beige (which I highly recommend).

Once I put on the lipstick, ate my $15 salad, and headed back to Long Island (to work the rest of the day from my serene white lacquered desk at home), I fell totally in love with my purchase that did not fade at all. In my state of retail binge, I searched for more Bobbie Brown to buy. I then spied my make up collection on my vanity, and decided it had to be reorganized, including a new display. So one eye shadow palette, 3 more lipsticks, one pot of concealer, powder, and cheek stain later, I had effectively replaced my entire makeup supply (and exhausted my budget for the entire month of October on day #3). Sometimes it takes a fresh wash of color to brighten the day under the dim glow of the office lights!
