Published in: Just For Fun

Wait — what’s that sound?! Do you hear it, ladies? The jingling in the distance, like sleigh bells? Santa’s coming! πŸ™‚


Are you almost done with your Christmas preparations and shopping? Are you going to be among the tens of millions of travelers this week?

It’s a mad house out there, isn’t it? Yesterday I braved the Ala Moana Shopping Center here on Oahu (visited by four times as many people/year as Disneyland). It’s the state’s largest mall, and I’m not kidding here: the place is NO JOKE!

Right now I’m fueling up on coffee and Hawaiian sweet bread to go for a leisurely jog around the neighborhood. I think I’ll bring my camera with me…

Before I jet, are you ready for another giveaway (BTW, there’s still time to enter yesterday’s Urban Decay giveaway too)?

The prize

One lucky lady will win Lancome’s Sparkling Cherub Illuminating Powder (a $40 value), a shimmery highlighter for the face and body.

    Ala Moana is insane!! There was a mall somewhere in Oahu that had the best mashed potatoes I had ever had in my life, but I can’t remember which. I was only 8 at the time, so maybe I just hadn’t had very good mashed potatoes, but it seemed weird that Hawaii of all places is where I’d find the holy grail of smashed starches.

    I can’t wait to see the movie Nine. It looks fab. I’ve been listening to my Chicago CD nonstop to get pumped as it’s by the same director. I heard Daniel Day Lewis is up for an Oscar for this. It’s not even fair when D.D.L. is involved!

    I wish I was with you in Hawaii. The Big Island is our favorite place. Instead, I’m sitting here in Michigan waiting for freezing rain in time for Christmas. Mybe we could trade palces for awhile, even if only in my dreams.

  206. isadora says:

    I want, I want, I want the cherub print powder!!! makeup is so addicting~ *sigh* (BTW-love your posts)

  209. gina says:

    I can’t believe I spent more on gift wrapping and christmas “accessories” than on gifts. How sad, but so festive!

  210. cloudburst says:

    I’m baking pumpkins pies & eating the leftover raw filling, LOL!

  211. Courtney says:

    Ahh I just won a HUGE lot of prestige makeup for only $15. I really just wanted the one black shadow that I’ve been using as eyeliner, but 65 extra goodies is great. I’ll probably make them stocking stuffers for my friends or something. I’ve never tried any of their other products, I just kind of stumbled on the black eyeshadow, so I’ll definately be trying them out! If anything, it will be fun experimenting. :3

  212. Courtney says:

    oh lol, missed the deadline xD

  213. Courtney says:

    or not? I fail.

    Hi Karen, I’m a follower πŸ™‚ take a chance on me!

    I just came back from Paris and London a couple of days ago and I was terribly lucky to have my flight arrive on time! I was dying from a few days of not visiting MBB — the hotel I was staying in Paris was charging 8 euros an hour for Internet access. Glad to be back and hope I haven’t missed much! Am catching up on the entries on my email feed. Hope you’re great in Hawaii!
