Happy Friday everyone!!! So I wanted to share with you my all-time favorite lipstick. It's called Cherish by MAC and it's a peachy-beige satin. In the photos above and below I paired it with MAC's lip liner in Spice. Here's a close-up:
And a swatch:
I think I've been wearing this color for about ten years! My make-up artist cousin who started off working at MAC but now works for gloss.com in San Fransisco introduced me to Cherish and I've been buying it ever since! What do you think of the color?
Ok now on to a different topic...
Sorry guys but I just have to get this out! Last night we went to Lit Italian Wine Bar downtown for our friend's birthday. We had a private section blocked off for our party of thirteen upstairs and my friend LL had made a reservation beforehand so the restaurant knew we were coming. It's a pretty small place, with only about 10 tables (2 of them were ours) but they only had one server on staff that night who also had to tend bar for the entire place. Needless to say we waited about 20-30 minutes for our drinks and about an hour to an hour and a half for our food. You would think the manager would come apologize for the wait or bring us some food to snack on in the interim but no. I don't even think the manager was there!

We were starving by the time our appetizers came. About 40 minutes later the main dishes arrived. I should note here that some of us ordered a bunch of appetizers for our main meals so half of the table was done eating before the other half even started!! Our waiter was actually a really good server. He was literally sweating up a storm trying to get food and drinks to our table. So much so that D. was about to offer him a napkin so his sweat beads wouldn't drip into our drinks ; ). I mean it wasn't his fault his boss doesn't know how to run or staff the place! Anyways, I was in the service industry as a waitress for about 8 years when I was younger, I worked at many different restaurants and pubs and I know what good service is and what we experienced last night was just awful. I don't even know if they discounted our bill or not at the end for our trouble because D. and I had to leave it was getting so late! By the end of the night the guest of honor, the birthday girl, was apologizing to all her guests for such terrible service. It should have been the restaurant apologizing. BIG TIME.The worst is that this place is brand new, it's only been open for a couple of months! None of us will be coming back and we definitely won't recommend this restaurant to anyone. Who cares if the food is good or not, it doesn't really matter when the service is that bad does it?
Do any of you have any awful service stories??? I'd love to hear them!
Have a great weekend and if you're eating out in the next couple of days choose wisely where you go!!!
