Tim Gunn isn’t the only one in the fashion world with a famous catchphrase (“Make it work!”). Tabs has one as well.

Actually…he has dozens of them. In fact, he’s famous for his quick-witted kitty quips and outrageous statements, and rumor has it that Karl Lagerfeld himself steals his own viral memes from Tabs (who’s thinking about purr-suing legal action).

Here are 12 of my favorite Tabs-isms this year. :)

In other news, I’M BAAAACK! We got home from Redding a little while ago, and let me tell you — my roots are excited! Girlfriend has not washed her hair since Christmas-freaking-Eve.

Whoops! Too much info…

I have kitty snuggles to share because Tabs is being extra lover-boy right now. He must have missed me while I was gone.

Anybody else maxing and relaxing at home tonight? I’m going to try to paint my nails…but it’s gonna be hard with a 20-pound tabby rubbing his chin against every available body part.

Comment to Win $152 in Fragrances From i smell great

Comment to win $152 in fragrances from i smell great! DEADLINE TO ENTER: Dec. 31, 2014.

***The giveaway is officially closed.*** CONGRATULATIONS, CHELSEA! You’re the lucky girl! I received your email response, so keep your eyes (and nose) peeled over the next few days for your fragrant prize. :)

The following post is sponsored by i smell great. From the creator of CLEAN perfume, the scents you love, extracted, encapsulated, bottled. Isn’t that great? Learn more at ismellgreat.com.

It’s been about a month and a half since I aromatically introduced myself to i smell great, and I’m still crushing hard.

The new line of easy-to-wear, mix-and-matchable scented lotions, potions and hair products is gentle enough to WANT to wear every day, and I like all four fragrances — Beach Babe, Candy Crush, Angel Cake and Wild Honey — none of which are so strong that they overpower everything when you walk into a room (in other words, nothing like the smell of popcorn).

And I’m still having fun with the idea of layering the different fragrances together, which come in different hair and body products, to create unique combos.

The layering/mixing/matching idea is their special power, along with being hella long-lasting, and I have yet to create a combo I haven’t liked. Individually, they’re all very light and gentle.

i smell great: the four fragrances

  • beach babe: Ah, take me away to a land of tropical breezes, coconut cream and golden suntan oil…
  • candy crush: Mouthwatering candied flower petals, rose syrup, icing sugar and candy hearts to tempt and tease you.
  • angel cake: A comfy, cozy scent with notes of pink icing, powdered sugar and candied almonds…with a touch of sweetness.
  • wild honey: A soothing synthesis of honey, brown sugar, Tahitian vanilla and sweet nectar make this intoxicating aroma irresistible.

The Soft Body Whip in Candy Crush + Wellness Water Mist in Angel Cake combo is currently nominated for ride-or-die status in my house.

There’s a corner of one shelf in my bathroom cabinet reserved for my favorite body lotions and body products, and i smell great stuff is all up in the mix.

10 Felines to Follow on Instagram

Festive greetings, fellow felines and human friends! I’ve been hard at work not hardly working, as my assistant would say.

Eh, but what does she know? It’s hard to take somebody seriously who wears stretchy pants as often as she does.

This week I finally got my new iPhone. Merry Christmas to me! It’s one of those giant ones — I think they call it a phablet? I needed a new phone to take more selfies for work and to follow my favorite felines and feline accounts on Instagram.

Here are 10 of my faves. I think you’ll like these a lot.

Purrs and kisses,

Tabs

Too bad mixing and matching things isn’t always as easy as it is with the new i smell great fragrance line.

Like when it comes to mixing and matching prints… I start out trying to create a cool-girl outfit but usually end up looking like I created my wardrobe in the dark.

Or cooking! Note to self: randomly throwing things from the fridge into a pot, and then praying that it turns into something edible, is not a legit food philosophy. I can tell you first hand that it works less than half the time.

But when I mix and match and layer any of the four gentle fragrances in the new i smell great line, totally different story. Every concoction I try turns out fantastic.

i smell great (2)

New from the creator of CLEAN, i smell great currently has five products and four fragrances. I’ve just started using them and like every one.

Beach Babe, Candy Crush, Angel Cake and Wild Honey — the four scents — are gentle, surprisingly long-lasting and very light, so they aren’t overpowering, and they’re designed to be mixed and layered together to create unique scents (of course you can also wear them individually).

i smell great: the four fragrances

  • beach babe: Ah, take me away to a land of tropical breezes, coconut cream and golden suntan oil…
  • candy crush: Mouthwatering candied flower petals, rose syrup, icing sugar and candy hearts to tempt and tease you.
