Merry Christmas, friend and fellow makeup lover!
Greetings from my old childhood bedroom in Union City. I’m here at my parents’ house, thinking about those scenes in so many movies when the kids, all grownups now, go home for the holidays and see their old rooms…
I can’t believe that this tiny, little space was for years the center of my solar system. It’s where I dreamed so many dreams of what I wanted to be when I grew up, and now it’s a storage room in the house, haha! My old bed is still here, and so are my old stuffed animals, but now they share the bed with my mom’s extra purses (she loves her purses) and the random nicknacks that no longer get top billing in the living room.
I just wanted to say a quick hi this morning and thank you for being a friend.
Wait — did I just quote The Golden Girls? At any rate, I hope that wherever you are and whatever you’re doing right now, you’re happy and safe. And please also know that you’re loved.
Tabs asked me to pass along his best regards. He’s had a busy weekend, jam packed with star-studded holiday events, like the annual Fashionable Felines Celebrity Ball.
I do hope that Tabs takes some time off this week… He’s such a workaholic, as you can tell from his latest batch of kitty modeling pictures. This week he worked on several holiday campaigns for MAC, NARS and Benefit, among other brands. He just might be the hardest working plus-size kitty model in the business.
El Hub and I are heading up to Redding now to spend the afternoon with his parents. See you again soon.
Who is Tabs the Cat? About three years ago I befriended a stray, flea-bitten tabby cat with a bad case of worms. I could see he’d fallen on hard times, but his profound knowledge of high fashion and department store cosmetics led me to believe that he was more than meets the eye. We became fast friends, and now he’s actually my boss (and a successful kitty model).
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Some of the photogs who work the kitty modeling circuit say that Tabs has the best portfolio in the biz. If you’d like to take a look, here are pics from the first dozen pages, and if you’d like to see more, you can check out the archives here).
