This morning I got to meet up with Lucy from http://www.moonlightgleam and Tina from http://bookshipper.blogspot.ca/ for breakfast this morning. It was so nice to see them again since its been a few weeks I believe. I saw them both shortly before leaving for BEA.
Once again I had every intention of taking pictures again of the food and us but we got into talking about my trip (my train travels and some of the hassle I encountered), BEA (publisher parties, the books, the people etc), NYC (what I saw and did) that I forgot to take pictures and only realized as the waitress was cleaning up that I didn’t do any. Next time I promise. (sounds like a broken record right?)
After our talk about NYC and BEA we got to talking about things in our lives, what we were doing, plans for the summer, lack of blogging (mainly on my part) etc. I am always amazed at how fast the time flies by when we meet up.
I am sure we would have stayed longer had we not had prier commitments. I am thinking that we need to do a brunch sometime soon.
Anyways no meet up would be complete without some kind of swap and this is what I came home with:
From Tina I got: a Publisher Weekly magazine (you can’t really see it because of the glare) a Neutrogena facial cleanser sample (I love this, I got one and used it when I was in NYC and I am thinking of perhaps purchasing a full size eventually) and the book Hostage Three by Nick Lake. This was actually one of the books I wanted to get at BEA and didn’t. Thanks Tina 🙂
From Lucy I got: a cute sample box filled with a Dior Gentle Cleansing Milk (I love this and I actually ended up buying the full size bottle a few months ago), Garnier hand lotion sample (another love of mine and I think I might pop that into my suitcase for traveling), LACoupe shampoo and conditioner sample, Two Lips Gloss in the shade Vixen, naked skin cream, Whipped Body Cream in Villainess and a pretty blue eye shadow.
I also got five books from Lucy and they were:
- What We Became
- With a Little Luck
I am happy because I have been eyeing Delusion and Bewitching every time I go to Chapters but never bought them because they were in hardcover so I am thrilled to add these to my collection.
Now I am off to the library to return a few items (books and video games) and to hunt down the suitcase that is hidden in the children’s section. Michael is thrilled to be going. He is determined to find it as many times as he can because he is hoping to win the small suitcase filled with candy.
Have a great day everyone
