Breakfast at Bendel’s

This morning’s event at Henri Bendel in NYC was a gathering of magazine and web editors for an exclusive preview of beauty products for Spring 2008.

Thanks to Total Beauty, who scored us tickets, we had an opportunity to experience some amazing products—all of which we’ll be telling you about over the next few days.

It was so fun to see everyone swooning over Ted Gibson—(okay, it was JULIA)—and the super naughty new fragrance by Etat Libre d’Orange (the one where you need to be of legal drinking age before even considering a purchase), but the favorite part of our day was catching up with our blogger friends.

Losing someone you love at such a young age (our father was only 57) really changes your perspective on life. As we sampled products and listened to presentations this morning, we couldn’t help but feel so grateful to be standing amongst a group of old and new blogging friends who have been so thoughtful and supportive during this most difficult time.

Friends at Bendel’s

We should have taken more photos (as usual) but here’s a few of our friends: (l-r) Kristen, Amber, Marina (sorry, Marina! If there was a picture of you with your eyes open, we totally would post it—blame our pathetic photography skills) and Julia. Missing from this photo is Annie from Bella Sugar, our newest blogging friend who was right on the other side of Julia, yet managed to escape the shot.

Aside from having laryngitis (no, really—our hoarse whisper is barely discernible. It’s so bad that the girl who works at Staples admitted she was only working past her scheduled cut-off time to make copies for us because she felt sorry for us and our useless voice) it was a really good day.

And, holy crap, our new Le Metier de Beaute lipgloss in Cannes made our trek across the US yesterday totally worthwhile. Chicago layover included.
