A Bit About Me . . .

October 31, 2009

I loved reading all your responses to my poll earlier last week! Thank you for sharing a bit about your lives with me. Here is a bit about me:

  1. Some non-beauty related things about me – I love to bake sweet-flavored things (cakes, cookies, cupcakes, breads), I just celebrated my 1 year anniversary with my husband, I have 2 jack-russell terriers and 1 cat, my clothing style is simple/classic (along the lines of Banana Republic & Jcrew), TV shows I love include The Office, 30Rock, Fringe, Bones, The Closer.

  2. Where am I from? I’m from Southern California, been living here most of my life.
  3. A few things I bought recently that I love Williams Sonoma Chef’n Salad Emulsifier (this is genius!), Chanel Enthusiast Nail Polish LE from Neimans but also available on Chanel.com, Paul & Joe Lip Lacquers, Shu Uemura Tsumori Chisato items (more details/pics coming soon)
  4. At the top of my wishlist? The Neimans Exclusive Bobbi Brown Mini Shimmerbricks, Edward Bess Holiday Jet Set, Paul & Joe.
  5. What other hobbies do I have besides shopping? Going for walks with my hubby and 2 dogs, baking, cooking, blogging, reading other peoples blogs, watching TV.
  6. What other things do you collect besides makeup? Flats, scarves and purses, here are few of my favorites:

  • Holy hell, I need that emulsifier ASAP. I would live in William Sonoma if I could…sigh =)

    and I have more bag envy, double sigh!

  • Lina your animals are adorable! What are their names? I always have cats, hope to have a dog one day. And Happy Anniversary!

    Also, I love those sweet Prada d'orsay's and the leopard print flats! Love your collections!

  • Hmmm….if I stopped buying tubes of NARS lipsticks/glosses and UD shadow palettes i could probably afford more shoes/purses!

    I have a passion for cooking myself – yesterday I bought 3 different thermometers, cooking twine and parchment paper just for the upcoming holidays. i'll be going back to Bed/Bath/Beyond for more cupcake/cake tins!

    Happy anniversary btw…

  • I know this was kind of asked above but I can't seem to figure it out…
    Where do you find the NM exclusive Bobbi Brown mini shimmer bricks? I can't find pictures anywhere!

    Thanks in advance:)

  • Hi msbalgeman – the Bobbi Brown Mini Shimmer Bricks are exclusive to Neiman Marcus. I found the info from my local counter. I believe they come in a set of 3, but won't be 100% sure until they arrive instore.

    They aren't up online yet, but check out these 3 links:




  • Thank you so much for the info! I can't wait for these to come out! Can you keep us updated when you see them released? I will keep my eyes open but don't have a Neiman Marcus store around me.
