|That's Aerin, embodying a lifestyle.|
I try hard but am so flawed. Just last night, I said I was moving my bedtime to 10:30, right? But Figgy didn't have to be @ school til 11 this morning due to a testing schedule, so she could sleep late and so could I. Therefore, I was up til 11:45. Still better than the usual 12:30, but....what?!
I get disappointed in myself, setting a goal and not keeping it. Will try again tonight.
And what did I do between end of presidential debate and 11:45 P.M.? I trolled the internet--or maybe I should start saying I beauty-queened the internet so I don't feel bad about myself, like I'm an ugly green creature living under a small, creepy bridge.
I beauty-queened to find info about Aerin Lauder, Estée Lauder's granddaughter. Aerin is in the same class as Tory Burch, a pretty, polished, famous, chic style icon and a mom of boys--I'm pretty sure the two women are friends [no, really]. Aerin is understated and beautiful....
It started when I read about her new product line in Vogue. Then on Friday night @ Neiman Marcus, while waiting for Fig and pal, this nice beauty pro named Dealin LaValley [firstname.lastname@example.org] helped me out, showing me the goodies. I didn't buy anything, but he kindly gave me a sample--a tiny, doll-sized pink tube--of Aerin ROSE LIP CONDITIONER, and I've been loving it.
So yesterday [while I should have been working, strictly] I ordered a tube--free shipping and returns at esteelauder.com, so cheaper than spending gas money to drive back to Garden State Plaza in Paramus. Then I landed at aerin.com. Soon started googling images of Aerin's mother, Jo Carole Lauder....to see if beauty is in the genes...and then came upon Aerin's sister, Jane, and their aunt, stunning Evelyn Lauder.....and so on. Then inevitably, the road from beauty to food: I read about Aerin serving her famous grandmother's favorites--roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, Bûche de Noël, chocolate-covered marshmallows from Hoffman's Chocolate in tony Palm Beach, FL. And then home decorating--you can check Aerin's lovely design eye @ aerin.com.
Here it is, another day. Let's have a good one. If only a magical pink lip slip could transform my world, make everything smooth and rose-colored, not a wrinkle in sight. In my dreams, baby, in my dreams. But I still believe in the power of pretty.
