Seriously, if I don’t start getting some recognition from my boss, I just might go apesh*t. Don’t get me wrong, I love working for Tabs. Being his executive assistant/gravy chef has been an amazing experience, but he refuses to acknowledge any boundaries between my work and personal life.
Last night I literally had one foot out the door when he stopped me.
“Meow!” he said, knowing full well that El Hub and I had reservations for dinner.
“But it’s our anniversary,” I replied. I pleaded with him, but he just stared back at me, expressionless, as if to say, “And?” He told me dinner would have to wait until I finished swatching these new lip products from the Dolce & Gabbana Italian Summertime Collection, available now at Saks stores and also online.
Apparently, he got an e-vite from Domenico and Stefano to spend the weekend at their villa on Lake Como in Italy, and he wanted the swatches to help him decide which lip colors he should wear for the trip.
Whatev. A kitty assistant’s work is never done…

Shine Lipstick in Luna
It’s not really my kind of color, but frosty beige Shine Lipstick in Luna has a ’60s go-go girl vibe Tabs also likes.
He ended up going with Classic Cream Lipstick in Mandorla for the flight over, adding that you just can’t go wrong with the classic smokey eye/nude lip combo.
Even though I was late for dinner, I have to admit — the cat’s got good taste.
