Cocktails and Shopping? What a great combo! Henri Bendel’s is sponsoring their last fall “Girls’ Nite at Bendel’s” Tonight. There will be special guests; Eric Jimenez of Benefit Cosmetics giving you tips on holiday looks and author Janis Spindel “Get Serious About Getting Married: 365 Proven Ways to Find Love in Less Than A Year” (Harper Collins) will give you a sneak peak into her book and romantic tips. Call 1-800-HBENDEL or 212-904-7960 to reserve your spot. Your $25 reservation fee is redeemable in Benefit cosmetics.

I just looked at my calendar and realized that it’s T-minus 12 days before my birthday. Yes, this year I finally turn 12. That means next year I become a teenager. Whee! No, seriously the older you seem to get, the more birthdays become emotional landmines. Instead of grooving on icing flowers and who gets the slice of cake with more icing; you look back on the previous year and try to figure out why you aren’t where you’d thought you’d be right now. Why romance, career or what ever your particular hot spot isn’t working for you. Conversely, you may look back and count all the joys and high points that you hit the previous year. Either way, birthdays are a time of reflection.

I, for one am really glad that I no longer have to play “Pin the Tail on the Donkey.” I have problems with spatial dynamics.
