This Is Not One Of My Favorite Things

Long before Oprah was making studio audiences squeal over Josh Groban CD’s and $4,000 refrigerators with TV’s on the door, my girl Fraulein Maria had a song about her favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

I’m pretty sure ColorOn EyeEnvy – Tinsel Kit wasn’t quite what the perky postulant had in mind.

I don’t know why anyone would actually spend $17 on this, but let’s say you do…when the dog bites and the bee stings and you’re feeling sad, thank your lucky stars that you didn’t pay full-price ($25) for this hot mess…and then you won’t feel so bad.

HAPPY Holidays, From Clinique

This weekend, Clinique is spreading holiday good cheer. Friday, December 12th marks the beginning of Clinique’s Happy Weekend! To kick it off and in an effort to “pay it forward” and bring happiness and good will to consumers, Clinique will be brandishing shoppers with Random Acts of Happiness at the Happy Weekend Hospitality Tent in key cities across the country (New York, Chicago and Miami*) – because we could all use a little joy and happiness this holiday season.

At the Happy Weekend Hospitality Tents, Clinique Happy Santa and Elves will present passersby with free hot chocolate, cookies, Happy candy canes and complimentary gift wrapping (regardless of where the gifts were purchased).

Clinique counters nationwide will be gifting free iPods to lucky consumers chosen from those who enter to win, regardless of whether they have purchased a Clinique product. Happy elves will also be on the look out for anyone who needs assistance, whether it is crossing the street or helping people get into taxis.

Clinique will also reunite with Big Brothers Big Sisters, the largest and most effective youth mentoring organization in the country, to ensure that those less fortunate have many opportunities to smile this holiday season. Beyond donating monies, Clinique will give the children and their moms something to be happy about. This year, the children will have the opportunity to gift their moms a Clinique makeover on Happy Weekend, along with a full year supply of skin care and makeup that has been customized for her needs. In addition, Clinique will join the children of Big Brothers Big Sisters at their annual holiday party on December 13th in New York City and will bring along a Clinique Happy Santa to deliver presents to all.

Clinique Holiday Cards designed by children of Big Brothers Big Sisters are available on while supplies last. Also log on to catch “The Ten Days of Happiness” where Clinique will share a happy thought daily – send to your friends and loved ones and create a virtual happy moment.
