6:15am - Alarm went off and I woke up between my 2 daughters, age 11 and 9, in our king bed. Barry (my partner in all things family and work) is out on the West Coast looking at potential store sites. Looked in the mirror horrified. This cold weather is wreaking havoc on my skin. Did an M-61 Power Glow Peel and ran out the door at 7am. Almost a foot of snow on the walk!
9am - Shuttle to NYC. Read The Washington Business Journal, WSJ, and WWD on the plane. Also my favorite new book, Location Is (Still) Everything by David Bell, Wharton Professor. Applied my favorite NARS Audacious lipstick (Brigitte) over Laura Mercier’s Defining Lip Pencil in Hazelnut Tea as we landed.
11:45am - Posted up at Rodarte show – thank you, NARS. Front row seat between the smartest beauty editors ever – Jane Larkworthy of W and Sarah Brown of Vogue. Sarah’s skin is fabulous, she said her secret is layers and layers of face oil. Also sat close to Jean Godfrey June who told me about the BBC show “Doctor Who” for my son. Rodarte show was off the hook. I need the blue fur coat and leather and lace pants. NARS’ makeup was nude face, soft coral lips (need these now, too!), and silver sparkle eyeliner under the eyes. Prominent sculpted cheek bones, of course.
1pm - Headed to our Summit, New Jersey store for a meeting with our amazing store managers. Talk about beauty tips – they are the best in the business and could write their own magazine!
6pm - Flying home from Newark to Washington. Kids had a snow day but I’m definitely going to look at their homework!
Tomorrow - Day trip to Boston!
