Someone’s a sleepy sheepy this morning. Zzzz…

Rise and shine, morning glory! I was just getting some nice “mommy and toygy time” (pronounced: toy-ɡē) in bed, which is what I call it when Tabs lavishes me with lurvies, but now it’s time to get up. After all, someone’s gotta man the tabby command center’s first watch and make sure that none of the neighborhood cats are invading the property.

In other news, we may drive out to the East Bay today to visit my parents and hit up a couple of furniture stores. I desperately need some kind of storage cabinet and a new bedroom dresser. The drawers on mine don’t even close anymore (and it’s so annoying).

I hope it’s sunny where you are, my friend. :) Good luck in the giveaway, and I’ll talk to you soon.

Good morning, good morning!

I hope you’re having a nice morning so far, and if it hasn’t been all that, maybe a cup of tea will help. I have one last bag of Trader Joe’s Vanilla and Cinnamon Black Tea, and you can have it if you want. Or I can make you something else. Chocolate macadamia nut coffee, or some spiced chai? Just let me know.

With all of these drinks in the house, I could open up a cat cafe of my own. With one cat!

Now that you’re here and kind of relaxed (hopefully), take a second to please enter this weekend’s Sephora e-card giveaway. All it takes is a comment and a smile. :)

I hope you’re up to something fun today. I’m heading to my friend’s house for brunch a little later this morning, and I’m very excited because she’s a gifted cook. Like, she has the gift. Sometimes when you eat her food, you want to cry.

Sometimes you also want to cry when you eat my food, but for completely different reasons. Haha.

Good luck in the giveaway. I’ll talk to you soon.

Bonjour! It’s caturday! And don’t you wish there were such a thing as tiny baby kittens that fluttered on gossamer fairy wings? :)

If you’ve stopped by before, have a cup of tea, and welcome back! You know the drill. It’s the Saturday giveaway, so we’ve got all that good stuff going on, but can we talk for a moment first about the phenomenon that is SoulCycle?

I’ve never been myself, but I’ve heard from friends in New York and friends here that once you do it, you totally get into it. Honestly, I hope not…because the classes are kind of expensive. I mean $30 for one spin class? I can put on my tennis shoes and run and up and down the street for free.

Buuut they have an introductory $20 promo price, so I’m going today for the first time with my friend Mary, and we’re going to the 60-minute class, so hopefully I get my money’s worth. I just pray to the makeup gods that my butt will not be numb by the end of it.

Wish me luck, and good luck to you in the giveaway.

Right now I’m being assaulted by your nephew tabby — assaulted with kitty love. I’m sitting in an awkward position on the couch that is not conducive to tabby lap-sitting. He’s kind of draped over my left hip, making do with what’s available to him. In his eyes, he’s probably claiming what is his, because everything clearly exists for the happiness of the tabby. :)

So my new favorite thing to do on weekend mornings is drink chai tea. I use the pre-made mix by Big Train, and it’s SO GOOD. I like to have it while watching Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo, which they seem to have changed. It’s no longer ordinary millionaire Joes looking for love. Now it’s like Chilli from TLC looking for love. She’s a bonafide celebrity in my book, but some of them are more “celebrities,” as in celebrities in “air quotes.”

Spencer and Heidi were on there to set up Spencer’s sister, Stephanie.

I hate that I know this…

I do have to say that Stephanie Pratt did a good job on the group date, though.

This is so dumb… Why am I talking about this?

Anywho! Trying something a little different with the weekly giveaway today. I’m trying to keep it simple, ’cause in these complicated times, simplicity is always a welcome thing. To enter, check the full details down below, but in a nutshell, just leave a comment.

Good luck, and have a great Oscar weekend. Talk to you soon.

Comment to Win L’Occitane’s 28 Days Divine Skin Renewal Program (a $130 Value)

Published in: Giveaways, L'Occitane, Sponsored Post

L'Occitane 28 Days Divine Renewal Program

Comment to win the L’Occitane 28 Days Divine Renewal Program, a $130 value

A lot can happen in 28 days.

Like, there could be a zombie apocalypse in England (you know what movie I’m talking about, don’t lie!!).

You could also get softer, smoother skin, and perhaps L’Occitane’s new 28 Days Divine Renewal Program ($130) can help with that.

It comes with 28 individual treatments of essential oils for more luminous, regenerated skin — one set of seven for each of the four weeks in a span of 28 days, which coincides with skin’s natural 28-day renewal cycle.

L'Occitane 28 Days Divine Renewal Program

L'Occitane 28 Days Divine Renewal Program

Each week in the program has a different focus.

  1. Week 1: gentle exfoliation. Pistacia lentiscus, or “mastic tree” essential oil, acts as a gentle exfoliator by encouraging the skin’s natural process of shedding to result in softer, smoother skin.
  2. Week 2: hydration and nutrition. A unique blend of four vegetable oils combine with cistus essential oil help nourish and hydrate the skin.
  3. Week 3: balance. Myrtle and rosemary essential oils work together to improve skin’s overall well-being.
  4. Week 4: renewal. Carrot, cypress and immortelle essential oils work to improve the visible signs of aging for a glowing complexion.

I’ve just about finished my first cycle of the program, and I have to say — I like the results.

My biggest skin dilemma lately has been hydration — rather, my skin’s complete lack of it — and the oils have helped. My skin feels softer and nowhere near as dry as it was before I started the program, and I also see a slight improvement in luminosity, although it’s been subtle…

No breakouts at all, though, during the program, so whoop-whoop!

Bare skin, yo!

The program is available now for $130 at L’Occitane counters, stores and online.

And um…it’s also potentially available right now FOR FREE, thanks to L’Occitane and today’s giveaway. :)

One lucky MBB reader will win the complete 28 Days Divine Renewal Program (a full set of the essential oils) to try at home.

To enter, just leave a comment below, and it can be a comment about anything at all, like…tell me about your favorite L’Occitane product, or how your skin’s been behaving lately, or type out all of the names of all of the frogs (or frog princes) you’ve kissed throughout your life.

What I’m trying to say is this: any comment at all. Yes, girl. It’s that easy.

More deets…

Enter by leaving a comment below about anything (like I said, anything at all). The deadline to enter is Friday, February 27, 2015 at 11:59 PM Pacific. Entrants must enter using a valid email address to win. Giveaway is open to individuals of the United States who have reached the age of majority according to their local laws (18 with these exceptions: Alabama and Nebraska, 19; Mississippi, 21). After the giveaway ends, my tabby overlord and I will select one (1) winner at random from the entries left in the comments below. Void where prohibited by law.

Good luck! :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
