Stormsister #5 - Last but not least, meet Meghan. I have known Meghan since she and I were teenagers, about 5 years now ;o) Isn't that right, Meghan? She's a mom to 4 kiddos, wife to Charlie, and the lady boss at  Quinn Motors of Ellsworth   - I purchased my first car from her father, William, when I was a teenager (5 years ago, remember?) and now purchase from her. (My own sons are now her clients). William would be so proud! Megan's lipstick was inspired by this satin nude - Think Elizabeth  but more sheer and add a bit of shimmer. Just a bit. There is also one helluva story that goes along with Meghan and her lipstick shade - one I'll tell you about at the lipstick launch. Wanna join in the fun? More about Meghan when her lipstick launches on October 28th, here .

Stormsister #4 - Erin came to be a Stormsister as a gift from her brother, Brad - a gift for her 40th birthday. Nice brother, right?! (that's Brad in the photo) It's been quite a year so far for her because she also got married this past summer. Big congrats to her and just another reason to celebrate on October 28th! If you find she looks familiar it may just be that you recognize her from our  3waybeauty launch a few years ago - she was one of our models. Erin's lipstick shade was inspired by this golden, beige shimmmer ,  that's just a bit more "peachy" than Michelle . More about Erin when her lipstick launches on October 28th, here .

Boobs - Tits - Breasts - The Girls

Just because I don't support the pink movement, doesn't mean I don't care about my boobs or yours, cancer, etc. I do. Very much. Hello?! I own a pair myself. I care about them so much that I want you to stop purchasing all of the pink bullshit , and support charities that seem to be on the right path. That being said, I do feel that this year, I have seen the least amount of pink leading up to this years' Breast Cancer Awareness month.
