Oxblood and cherries

smashbox-black-cherry-theartmuseWhat kind of post title is that? Oxblood and cherries? It's pretty much the only thing I could come up with on this fine Monday morning. I'm going on coffee #3 as I write, which leads to total lack of creativity because my brain is moving too fast for anything clever. This is probably my busiest time of the year, especially now that my son is a teen and homework patrol becomes more demanding. One of the blessings of working for Babble Beauty is that it gives me a great excuse to treat myself and have a bit of "me time." After perusing a few magazines and checking out the latest in NY Fashion Week news, I spent some time trying on lipsticks at Sephora and getting lost in the beauty aisles at Target. There are so many beautiful colors for Fall. I'm just over the moon that the new season is upon us. Even if it's a bit hectic now. If you're looking to switch things up, here are my top 5 lipstick colors for olive skin (and a few points about the difference in red lip colors) and my recent nail obsession, the Oxblood manicure. If you're preparing lunches, scurrying in the morning and have very little time for yourself, what do you when you need a little "me time?"
