Well, I didn’t quite intend it to happen so soon…but on Saturday I bought my first Christmas gift of the year! Not that I had set out to do so.
I was in a pharmacy/drugstore, waiting to buy some contact lens fluid, when I noticed this cool set of lip glosses. Cool for a younger woman, that is. Much younger. Like: 15.
We have a 15 year old friend of the family. She is a sweet girl, but she is 15 going on 25 (or would like to be), as is the way of many teenage girls. So buying for her has become rather difficult. You just know that what you buy her is going to be wrong – either not cool enough, not expensive enough (this is the girl of $400 cellphone lust), or somehow just plain wrong.
So my eyes lit up when I saw this Lip Smackers collection. It seems to fit around the demographic, and is a practical gift (who doesn’t need lip gloss of some sort, at any age?) that will also appeal to her girly, feminine side.
Although it’s still only June, I thought I’d better snap up this set because a) there was only one left on the stand; b) I’ll come back another time and there’ll be none in stock or; c) I’ll forget all about it. Then in December I’ll be scratching my head, going, “Now what the heck should we get Fern this year?”
