Go immediately to Bath & Body Works and buy the C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tints . OH. MY. GOD. I truly LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It tingles and looks all shiny and tastes good and keeps your breath minty fresh. And the colors are nice and sheer. And while you are there get Le Couvent des Minimes Repairing Hand Cream in Honey & Shea. While it is not the best hand cream ever (that title belongs to Aveeno Intense Relief Hand Cream), it is quite nice and smells like you are lathering yourself in whipped honey butter. MMMMMMMMM.
And another thing, Starbucks Chai. It rocks now that V has told me how to order it properly (Venti 7-pump chai, no water, no foam). But what to do when they f-up and don't do as requested? I feel bad telling them it's wrong. But this morning it was wrong, oh so wrong. Not 7-pumps and had foam (ick). The line was sooo long and I didn't want people to think I was cutting, so I just left and drank the thing. It was very average. So V - do I go to the front of the line, the back of the line or directly to the barista? Also, what else can I do with the pumpkin and eggnog latte stuff? I don't like lattes. Can they put it in steamed milk? Thank gawd I have someone "on the inside" to set me straight. Have any of you been dabbling with the holiday flavors at Starbucks?
PS - Am I the only one who reads the paper in the Ventura Starbucks on Telegraph (near Victoria)? There is never a paper waiting in the free bin so I have to buy one. Sheesh. They give everyone free wireless but can't throw a copy of the Star and Times in the bin each morning? Or at least Monday and Wednesday mornings after I drop The Girl at school. Hmmmmpf.
