Your Nephew Says Meow

Published in: Daily Photo


He spent the better part of the day yesterday relaxing at the spa (also known as the bathroom sink), and if it weren’t for the irresistible allure of the Feline Greenies bag shaking, he probably would have stayed there all day.


He goes batsh*t cray for those things! If he had his way, he’d eat the whole Value-Size bag in one sitting.


Tabs must have had a case of the kitty Mondays yesterday, because he didn’t do a lot of kitty modeling, but he did find time to strike a pose or two…



Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Saw a video yesterday and thought you might like it. It stars Tresor, one of the six MAC MACnificent Me collection winners.

One of the things that touched me was when he said, “Don’t let go of your hope because it really is the most powerful thing you have.”

What a wonderful lesson. :) I hope that’s something I can teach Baby Girl someday.

Speaking of MAC and magnificence, the MAC MACnificent Me collection is available now online if you’re interested (here’s my review from a few days ago). Have you tried to chase anything down?

Current Nail Polish Situation: MAC Blog This and Simply Swinging

Published in: Daily Photo

It’s gonna be a purple paw weekend! I’m wearing two of the polishes from the new MAC MACnificent Me! collection, which arrives online September 21 on the MAC website and at stores and counters October 1 through November 12.

The lighter purple is called Simply Swinging, and the darker one is Blog This! — a name that I totally love. :) I’m wearing two layers of each.

With MAC nail polishes, I find that I really need to wear them with a base and top coat; otherwise, they’re chip city within a day.

I used Sally Hansen’s Green Tea Bamboo as the base coat with OPI’s Top Coat on top, and so far, so good! I’ve only had the mani two days, but I haven’t seen a chip yet.

Oh! — if you’re wondering, the bag is by Sonia Kashuk.

What’s your mani situation heading into this weekend? Are you sporting freshly painted paws today? Lacquer-loving minds want to know. :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,



A Sunny September Day in San Francisco

Published in: Daily Photo


It’s not often when you can visit SF and walk around in a dress, sweater and sandals and NOT be cold, although it does happen…and when it does, it’s usually in September or October. Sometimes it’s hard to predict Karl the Fog (that’s what they call it) and our unpredictable Bay Area microclimates.

But my trip to SF yesterday went well! Thank you very much for the maternity clothes recommendations. I found some pretty good prospects at H&M, and I’m keeping a list of the ideas you gave me in my cat lady day planner. I’ll show you what I found yesterday in a little while, but I have a couple other things I have to do first.

In the meantime, San Francisco says hello. :)

Snacks From Hawaii

Published in: Daily Photo

I got the nicest surprise in the mail yesterday — a care package filled with local Hawaii snacks from my friend Fern on Oahu.

She sent quite a few of my favorites, like Passion Orange Drink Mix (YUM), Coconut Pudding Haupia (it’s kind of like coconut Jell-O), Red Coconut Balls and Mauna Loa Macadamia Nuts, and some things I’ve never tried before, which I’m super stoked about. Seriously, I can’t wait to get those Hawaiian Sun Pancake Mixes (Lilikoi Passion Fruit, Pineapple Coconut and Chocolate Macadamia Nut) into my tum! I’m going through a breakfast-for-every-meal-of-the-day phase, and these should totally hit the spot.

There are some non-food-related things in there, too, like yummy-smelling soaps and lotions, a sweet card, a magazine, lip balm, and some drops to keep in the potty for those, um…less-than-fragrant moments when you’re on the throne (it happens to us all). :)

THANK YOU, FERN! This was very sweet of you. You made my week.
