Our blogger and best buddy Melissa L. was in an accident riding her bike a few weeks ago, and she has been at home recovering for over a month! Today, my friends, she returned to us, and we are so delighted!
Melissa hails originally from San Francisco, CA and started Zappos in the summer of 2008 as a video blogger. Even after the accident, she still managed to go ahead with her wedding, which was set for a week later. On October 3, Melissa married her best friend Igi in a beautiful ceremony in Temecula with many Zappos people in town.
Melissa, we are so happy to have you back!!!

Fall is finally here, which means cooler temperatures may be leaving your skin drier than usual and in need of some moisture-rich beauty products. In addition to making sure your daily skin routine is up to par, you’ll need to revive your skin after the long summer with some facial masks, nourishing scrubs and a slew of other products that will keep you glowing.
The first step to flawless skin this season is investing in a high-quality moisturizer . Look for facial creams and moisturizers that are free of chemicals and the type that are non-comedogenic so your pores don’t get clogged easily. You’ll need to apply moisturizer right after your cleansing and toning routine day and night, and your skin may benefit from a thicker, emollient-rich version from your favorite brand at night.
Another way to get flawless skin this Fall is to use a light, mineral makeup foundation instead of the heavier liquid variety. Mineral makeup can give you that flawless, camera-ready finish you crave without looking overly done. Look for mineral foundation that can be layered with a mineral bronzer to enjoy a healthy glow all season long.
If you want to keep your makeup looking clean and fresh this season, stick with the bronze, deep red and pink tones in lipsticks and eyeshadow this season. These are among the leading makeup palette colors for Fall 2009, and can help you create a natural, buff look for casual days and everyday use. If it’s time to take things up a notch for a special event, get your flawless look with the help of a cream concealer under the eyes and pressed foundation on the face and neck. This combination will give you a smooth, mattifying look for the season.
Finally, make sure to modify your skin cleansing and exfoliation routine to accommodate for the change of seasons. Cooler temperatures mean you may need to exfoliate with a moisture-infusing scrub a couple of times a week so that your skin is free of dead skin cells and flakiness. If your cleanser seems to dry out your skin, look for a milder version or one designed for sensitive skin to avoid excessive dryness for the season.
