Who’s getting my money these days:
This place needs to improve its web navigation, but it’s such a treat to find not-commonly-carried brands here: Bioderma, Soapwalla, Juniper Ridge, etc… Plus, I appreciate the wide price range and product assortment. Anyone can find something they want. I’m already planning my next purchase.
I kinda wish that I never discovered this place. I don’t think I ever spent less than $180 here. Am I crazy? What am I doing? I don’t need that many skin creams. Or, do I?
Whatever. This place is expensive, but it is a pleasure to shop here.
Sephora just makes it so easy. They’re everywhere. You can come and go as you please. Swatch and try as you please. They carry almost every major beauty brand. There’s no way you can avoid spending money here though I don’t think this place is exciting as the other two places.
"This is who I am, this is who you married, this is who you love. You chose love, you chose me — you could have put me in prison or brought down the White House, and that is not sitting so well with you now. This choice is rotting deep inside; it’s not the choice, but the fact that you now know you are capable of making that kind of choice. You can pretend it’s me, that I’ve infected you with my bad, bad ways, but you did this, this is the man you are, and I love you anyway, because that is the man I am."

I mailed a bunch of letters to friends and family this past weekend. I miss them all and wish that we all lived closer to one another:
Portsmouth, New Hampshire
New York, New York
Brooklyn, New York
Bloomfield, New Jersey
San Francisco, California
Seoul, South Korea
Norman Rockwell, Girl Running with Wet Canvas. I see what you mean about the sadness in most of his paintings, but I don't see sadness in this one. I see determination.
Many thanks for your note!
Here’s what I see in Girl Running with Wet Canvas:
She’s pissed and hurt. Look at how the supplies aren’t stored properly and how her cap is flying off her head; she stormed off without bothering to pack. I’m thinking that she received a harsh (and perhaps unfair?) critique of her work.
She’s hurting, and she needs a hug.
