january snowFor some of you, the party is over.  For others (ahem, yours truly) the party is just beginning… and you’re obviously invited.  But in case you can’t make it, I understand that January can be a bit bleak, what with the blizzards and below freezing temperatures.  It might be quite tempting to barricade yourself inside until the nightmare that is Valentine’s Day passes.  In the off chance that you’re looking to be a functioning part of society and perhaps secure a date for V-day, it might be necessary to self medicate in the form of shiny accessories, a heavenly scent, and the perfect shade of red lipstick.  Hey, just because I have plans to drown in a pint of Haagen Dazs with How To Lose a Guy in Ten Days’ credits rolling doesn’t mean you have to.
