I'm in the October issue of Glamour!

Upon opening the pages of my October issue of Glamour today, I saw a familiar face--mine! I'm on the second page of the CoverGirl advertisement section.

I did get to try all of the products featured in the ad-- I had much more than I could actually use, so some of my friends were the grateful beneficiaries of some new makeup. Hopefully I'll have more to try soon! -g.

Gray chinos

I think I found one of my first fall fashion favorites! I can imagine this pair of gray chinos pairing nicely with everything from crisp white oxfords to cozy sweaters. -g.

Aveda Stimulus Package

I'm a big fan of most things Aveda. The quality is consistent, they're eco-conscious and the scents are energizing...I'm also a fan of small travel-friendly-sized products, especially when they're free.

Visit Aveda's website and get a coupon for Aveda hand relief sample. This will be perfect for my travel bag! -g.

Victoria's Secret Laundry Products

In college, a friend turned me on to the Victoria's Secret laundry line. The price was exorbatent for a poor college student, but once I smelled the laundry fresh out of the dryer, I was hooked. I justified the expense by only using it on my sheets, which I only washed a few times a month. Then, suddenly, a few years ago, the VS laundry line disappeared. I was crushed at first, then forgot about it.

Last year, I noticed a re-designed version back in Victoria's Secret stores and decided to splurge once again. The formula, or at least the scent, seems to be the same, but the packaging is different. It's pricey, but if you get any VS Angel reward certificates (I get them a few times a year--typically for $10) or birthday reward cards, the $12 for a box of 40 sheets becomes cheaper than Bounce. If your lingerie drawer runneth over, this is a great way to treat yourself at Victoria's Secret. -g.
