You'll have to excuse the absence of any beauty or style related post this weekend. We got a new puppy! It's been about 11 months since we lost Winnie, and our hearts are finally ready and open to inviting another little bundle of furbaby joy into them. Instead of outfit shoots and beauty product testing, our weekend was spent at Petsmart (a record breaking 4 times in 2 days), at our house getting the place "puppy ready", and of course the requisite trip to the family's house to introduce her to extended family members. She is actually related to Bella, my mother's Yorkie (whom you last saw here), in that they share the same dad and their mothers are sisters! She, like Bella, is super tiny, only 1 pound at 3 months of age. She's also a real trooper, handling baths and the wayward thermometer at her first vet checkup with ease. Let me know if you'd like to meet her in some of my videos! She's definitely been the weekend star of my Instagram.
Incandescent: Meeting Joan Rivers
Several years ago, I wrote about my experience attending a fashion blog conference hosted by Lucky Magazine. I had the overwhelming privilege to spontaneously meet, chat, and receive a hug by the firecracker we know as Joan Rivers. You may not know this (I didn't previously), but Joan was a huge advocate of suicide survivors--a term that describes the people left behind in the wake of a loved one taking their own life.
