What if there was a restaurant staffed by cats!?

Entirely by cats. All hygienic and up to code, of course, Michelin-star rated.

They’d serve a lot of fish, lots of turkey, some cheeses… I’d go, that’s for sure. Would you want to come with me? :)


The food would all be locally sourced.



Those toes, tho…


These Ladybugs Are Studs! The Kristin Perry Ladybug Stud Earrings

Published in: Daily Beauty

Kristin Perry Ladybug Studs

Ladybugs are good luck! I’ve believed that ever since I was a kid.

And if one lands on you, it’s extra good luck (time to buy a lottery ticket).

Even though these 18k gold-plated Kristin Perry Ladybug Studs didn’t lightly land on my arm, I still hope they bring me good luck. :)

From afar, they look like standard stud earrings, but up close you see the ladybug detailing.

That’s the kind of thing I love about Kristin’s jewelry. Her whimsy. Everything’s so fun and unique!

This pair is $34 and available now online.

Give a Makeup Memento With the MAC Keepsakes Eyes Palettes in Plum, Beige and Smoky

MAC Keepsakes Eyes in Beige Eyes

The MAC Keepsakes Eyes palette in Beige Eyes

Just in case you’ve started looking for pretty eyeshadow palettes to stuff into stockings. :)

Every year MAC gets into the seasonal holiday collection spirit by releasing a number of limited edition eye palettes, face palettes, makeup kits and sets, usually with an overarching theme and special packaging.

This year’s theme: keepsakes.

Each of the three Keepsakes Eyes palettes — Beige, Smoky and Plum — house eight powder eyeshadows in a mix of re-promoted and brand new shades, and they’re all coming to the MAC website starting October 19, then to North American MAC stores and counters October 23 through December 18, and to all international locations sometime in November.

Isn’t the packaging pretty? I like it, but I’m a little worried about the plastic pearl fringing around the edge… It has a little wiggle to it, and I’m afraid it might break.

Awfully pretty, though.

Beige Eyes, $39.50 US/$47.50 CAD

Bahama Mama Bronzer by theBalm: A Golden Brown Without Orange Undertones

Victory is ours! Power to the scrunchie!

theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer (7)

I’ve been on the hunt for a matte golden brown bronzer without any orange undertones because I like to switch up my bronzer game every once in a while, and I finally found one — Bahama Mama Bronzer by theBalm ($20, available now at theBalm counters and online. ).

The golden brown color reminds me of a big pan of MAC Soba Eyeshadow, but with a matte finish instead of a sheen. Good for contouring cheeks, or as an eyeshadow, or for adding overall warmth to the face.

Even though I feel like the gal on the packaging is throwing me shade (“Karen, really? Another golden brown smokey eye look?”), I kind of love her side eye, haha!
