Whew! Fashion Week has just started, and I've already seen some gorgeous hair and makeup backstage at Alice Ritter. But more on that later. Right now, I wanted to show you what people mean when they say Fashion Week is a lot of work. It's pouring in New York, and while going from the subway to my hotel, I saw this adorable-but-drenched girl standing outside of the Bryant Park tents. She's passing out free samples of Cover Girl Lash Blast, and since you know that I'm a fan, I was happy to take one off of her hands.

But like I said, it's pouring! "You poor thing," I said. "How are you holding up?" She laughed and said she was fine, but how she stayed so chipper, I have no idea. So if you happen to be in New York right now, swing by the corner of 42nd St and 6th Ave for a free mascara. On my way back to the shows, I'm planning to bring her a coffee to help her warm up! Expect more updates throughout the weekend, my friends!

(PS) Fab keeps giving me all of the beauty products she's getting in her goody bags. Not that I'm complaining, but who doesn't like shampoo samples?
