    Hope Hawai’i is treating you well!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lesley,

      Aww, thanks! You should try this look… it’s easy and elegant. I like to use it when I’m feeling lazy, too. πŸ™‚

      I wish I was still in Hawaii, sigh. I returned home on Monday!

      How are you? Got any exciting plans for the weekend?

  2. Amber says:

    Yay for videos! Thanks for the tip…you definitely pick a girl up on a bummer of a Friday night!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Amber,

      You’re welcome. πŸ™‚ I hope your evening has been okay. Mine was pretty mellow. Just got back from the movies and now I’m just sipping on Sleepytime tea and chillin’ with Tabs. πŸ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Hi Mishel,

      Thanks! πŸ™‚ The tan is quickly fading, le sigh.

      Isn’t this hairstyle easy? I like to rock it when I’m bumming around town, too.

      What’s going on with you this weekend? Any plans?

  4. Shiny says:

    Hah! That is exactly how I have been wearing my hair for the last couple days! I’ve skipped a washing (or two), and it hides my greasy roots.

  5. Kate & Zena says:

    I didn’t know you wore contact lenses. I wear them too. What brand you used.

    I do that all the time. I have scarves that are made for headbands from Scunci.

  10. alice says:

    Looks so cute on you!

  11. Kypris says:

    I love that look on you! I may have to try it out… if I can find a scarf. I already look young though, and I have a feeling that style will make me look even younger (i.e. like a teenager).

  12. Heather says:

    Hi Karen!
    Guess what? I’m going to Sydney, Australia this July πŸ™‚ I commented you about it, but it was in a giveaway post and I would really be amazed if you actually read all of the comments. Any words of advice? It shouldn’t be too hot b/c it’s “winter” there, and I have plenty of SPF. I’ve never heard of there being any makeup brands exclusive to Australia, but maybe you have?

    Oh and great video, but I suck with hair. I’m like handicapped compared to people like you! And pursebuzz omg how does she do it?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Heather,

      I try to read all the comments but don’t answer back in the giveaways to keep the entries fair. πŸ™‚

      Anyway, I’m so excited for your trip, YAY!

      I only know two Australian brands, Model Co and Becca. I LOVE BECCA! It’s getting harder and harder to find here in the U.S., so definitely stock up on that line while you’re there.

  13. Kate & Zena says:

    I’m test-driving the same brand. I was wearing the Acuvue Advance with Hydroclear but I began having serious issues (blurring, burning, redness, etc) with them. They think it was a long term allergic reaction so they switched me to the other brand of Acuvue that the opt said I could have.

  14. Vanessa S says:

    This is so cute and fashionable. It reminds me of the actresses in the 1960’s.

  15. jessica says:

    you look soo gorgeous in your video! fab hawaiian tan =)) what a cute look πŸ™‚ I like tying the bow, it llooks cuter πŸ™‚

    Hi Karen,
    I am glad you are back and as always you inspire me.
    I am booking a trip to Hawaii. As I told you guys earlier i was there in 1970 when I was pregnant with my son and my husband was in Vietnem. it was an R&R for him. It was a very sad good buy for us. but all worked out well. My son is 38 now an FBI agent in NY. My Husband had come home that Nov. When My son was 10 months old. It was a wonderful reunion.
    But the best part of this week was appreciating all that I have since those years went by. I think aobut Hawaii quite often and how beautiful it was and so do want to return!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Michele,

      Thank you for sharing this story with me. I am glad that everything worked out well. πŸ™‚ I bet you’re so proud of your son and your family.

      I think you wanted to pop this comment into the MAC giveaway post — I’ll stick it in there too so you can enter. πŸ™‚

  17. Kate & Zena says:

    I’ve only had them for a day so we’ll see. My favorite brand I’ve tried is O2Optix. I had to switch to Acuvue after the brand was recalled. I’ve noticed that the hydroclear keeps them hydrated but that may be the source of all my problems. I have to wait until September to ask if 02Optix carries my prescription. I’m blind, I swear. I wear -3.75 in my left and -4.75 in my right eye.

    How’s your weekend going? It’s been rather eventful here the past few days. Zena killed not one, but TWO bunnies. One each day. Zena was whining today so I went to investigate thinking she couldn’t find a hiding spot for her toy LBFF (little bunny foo foo) and told her to drop it. Well, she dropped a bunny all right in my parent’s bedroom doorway–a real, dead from a snap of the neck, bona fide bunny. I screamed when I realized she had brought a dead animal–that she had killed mind you–into the house! I had to tell my dad Zena had lovingly dropped a dead bunny on his doorway and took her for a walk so he could pick up the dead bunny. I don’t do dead animals!

    Don’t even ask me how she managed to sneak a dead rabbit inside without anyone noticing because I don’t know! I shudder when I think about it. Ew to the tenth degree! She was mighty proud of herself though. We don’t condone her killing what she’s bred to kill (in fact, we praise her as there’s practically a bunny epidemic in my neighborhood)…as long as it stays outside in the yard where my dad can get rid of it. We know you can’t train a prey drive out of a dog, particularly terriers.
