August #Birchbox Not my favorite this month. For some reason, they only did three box variations for the people who picked the #lauragellar eyeshadow sample and they all had the #neilgeorge. I like the eyeshadow and the #harveyprince. I haven’t tried it yet, but everyone says the #nugg mask is really good. I still love @birchbox though and I’m looking forward to a great September!

They’d never been lovers, of course, not in the physical sense. But they’d been lovers as most of us manage, loving through expressions and gestures and the palm set softly upon the bruise at the necessary moment. Lovers by inclination rather than by lust. Lovers, that is, by love.
