    I loved the small talk piece.

    I have the Lodis Audrey card case and a matching slim wallet. The leather is very nice, and I liked having a lot of color choices.

    I have tried the Clinique Matte lip powder. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I quite like it. I have the Blossom colour and wear it over lip balm so it is not too drying. The colour is very long lasting and you are able to vary the intensity with the application. I do not like a strong matte look as I find it to be aging but the lip balm takes the edge off in just the right amount for me.

    I know you mentioned financial topics in a previous post – I just finished “Get a Financial Life” by Beth Kobliner, and I could not recommend it more highly (it’s been in print since ’96). She’s actually speaking tomorrow at sixth&i.

    Just a heads up that my kids each had the 02 Cooler bottle and they are so hard to get/keep clean! I ended up having to throw them away after noticing mold forming in an unreachable crevice.
