1) Trish McEvoy - the woman, not the makeup!
I've been wearing Trish McEvoy since I was in high school. This is a brand that has taken me from day to night, from the pool to a party, from finals to formals. As much as I love glittery brands like Nars and Urban Decay, if I had to pick one line to use for the rest of my life, it would without a doubt be Trish.
(That's Trish, on the left, and her VP of marketing on the right.)
I recently attended an event at Bloomingdales in which Trish chatted with a small group for about 30 minutes while she did a makeup application, and afterwards each woman in the group got their makeup done. I loved watching and listening to her. I found her to be candid and charming. It's always nice to meet the person behind the product and realize that they're just as wonderful as what they're making!
Unfortunately, the second half of my session was not as enjoyable. I was matched with an incredibly rude employee, who, instead of applying my makeup (as was promised) asked me which one product I was interested in, applied it to my skin, and then said, "So what do you want to buy today?" I've worked with lots of lovely ladies at Trish counters in the past, but this woman was abrasive and unprofessional. Oh, well! You win some, you lose some.
2) Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice decaffeinated tea.
I'm fairly certain that I've mentioned at one point or another that I have Mitrol Valve Prolapse. No biggie, I just can't have caffeine. It's too tough on my heart. I'm always on the lookout for great decaf drinks. (If you have any suggestions, do share! I'm all ears.) This past weekend, I dined at Delicatessen and was offered cinnamon tea. I love just about anything with cinnamon. After sipping this delicious drink, I knew I had to have more. I searched on the Harney & Sons website, and lucky for me, they JUST started offering this flavor decaffeinated. I ordered it in bulk. :)
What did you discover this weekend?
