How’s it going, friend? I hope you had a nice Friday (never mind the ominous date). Mine turned out pretty well.
Maybe even great.
I had most of the afternoon off, as Tabs left early to catch a flight to Capri where he’s shooting a kitty modeling spread this weekend for Dolce & Gabbana’s new fragrance, Light Blue for Tom Cats.
(Look for it on counters spring 2013.)
I don’t know… Maybe it was the extra catnip I slipped into his gravy before the limo picked him up (he gets so nervous when he flies), but he was unusually nice to me this morning.
He even called right before takeoff to tell me that I could go to the salon today. His treat!
Meow mrrow, he said. Seriously, those were his exact words.
Not needing to be told twice, I booked a last-minute appointment with my bud Alis over at A-Line Salon.
Alis freshened my roots, trimmed my scraggly ends and lightened a few more sections to crank up the ombre effect I’ve been wearing for a few months.
I think I may have also found a new makeup look I’d like to try while flipping through the August issue of Glamour at the salon.

That liner — perfection!
I’m meeting Jen and Cindy for dinner in the city tomorrow night, and I think I’m gonna give it a try (wish me luck!).
After the salon, I swung by the mall to get a closer look at the new YSL fall 2012 collection.
I’ve been dying to see the khaki mascara in person.
Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in Vert Graphite ($30)
Kinda bananas, right? I’m intrigued yet scared at the same time.
I wonder if it’ll have a similar effect on brown eyes as purple mascara, maybe make them look browner? — but I don’t know about the color. Something about it’s sayin’ “baby poo” to me.
The collection looks promising, though, doesn’t it? Khakis, purples and grays for eyes; reds and khakis for nails; red lips; and sheer, shimmery cheeks courtesy of liquid highlighters that remind me a little of the NARS Illuminators.
Swatches from the left: Dare to Glow Silky Highlighting Veil in 1) Tempting Gold, 2) Fatal Red and 3) Naughty Pink ($28 each); and 4) Terre Saharienne ($50)
Pure Chromatics Wet/Dry Shadows in 5) No. 10 and 6) No. 11 ($52 each)
Rouge Pur Couture Matte Lipsticks in 7) Orange Imagine, 8 ) Rouge Rock and 9) Grenat Satisfaction ($32 each); 10) Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in Vert Graphite ($30); La Lacque Couture Nail Polish in 11) Khaki Arty and 12) Rouge Expressionniste ($25 each)
