Hello Gals

November 7, 2013 

Welcome to Lipstik Magazine. It’s that time of year when the hustle and bustle of the Holidays are upon us. Just 21 days until Thanksgiving and just 48 days until Christmas....ok, now that I have startled you with the important dates or should I say deadlines you must meet, remember to enjoy the days ahead, a little planning and lots of lists will make the job much easier.

Inside this issue of Lipstik you will find information on how St. Louis is fast becoming a fashion hot spot with St. Louis Fashion Week. Meet the designers up close and personal.

Don’t miss the story on the real Mrs. Santa Claus, her heartwarming stories from area children will certainly put you in the Christmas mood.

At this time of year we tend to reminisce and give thanks for all of the blessings we have in life. I know for myself I get caught up in making every moment of the holidays perfect for my family. The Thanksgiving dinner has to be just so, and the Christmas presents have to be “just the right gift” and every gift wrapped with a stunning presentation. I do run myself crazy and miss some of the priceless moments that make the magic of the holidays so special. So take it from me and I am going to listen to my advice.....make a list and check it twice....if it’s doesn’t get done you will not be naughty but nice. Cause Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.

Happy Holidays,
