Don’t Need No Credit Card to Ride This Train Week: Cold & Flu Instant Aromatherapy

First of all. I need to disclose that it is 100% NOT coming together today. Last night Jim and I had a “mentor program” meeting (where I mentor him about beauty/grooming blogging) that began at Lucy’s of Gramercy and ended 15 cocktails later at Splash‘s weekly Musical Monday party. Let me describe the scene. One MILLION fabulous gays. A handful of girls. An enormous screen featuring vignettes of the gayest musical numbers. I adore it. Liza Minelli in Caberet.

I’m just saying, it’s a small comfort that would have been nice to have at the ready along with my Ginger Ale this morning on my rougher-than-ush subway commute.
