Birthday Gifts

09/24/07
~Last week was my birthday and I got some really great gifts!! Greg gave me this grey Tod’s bag that I’ve been obsessing about for the past 2 months. And the wonderful girls here at tarte got me a gift certificate to my favorite place: Pottery Barn!! I’ve had my eye on this big, red trunk that can also double as a coffee table. I can’t wait to get it!! -candace

Waiting in Lines

09/12/07
~Last sunday my friend and I made the trek to Randall’s Island for the Farm Aid benefit concert started by Dave Matthews which works to keep family farmers on their land. I’m a huge Dave fan and was so excited to see him perform along with Willie Nelson and Neil Young, BUT the show was so poorly coordinated that the bathroom lines exceed an hour! So basically the whole day was spent in line, either waiting for food and beverages, or waiting for the bathroom. And I know we weren’t the only ones that felt this way so I need everyone to speak up and let the promoters know that the lines ruined the whole experience!! boo. -heather r

Locks of Love

09/04/07
~I made a major change this weekend… I cut 11” of my hair off!! And it was all for a good cause. I donated it all to Locks of Love, a charity that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair loss. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. So, in honor of my Nana, I went for it and now have a new Nicole Richie-inspired hairdo. Doing something nice for others not only makes you feel good but it also can make you look good! -erica
