Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun

A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway


WOW! OK…I don’t want to bore you if you aren’t a Hunger Games fan, but Catching Fire was SO GOOD.

No spoilers, I promise.

I only wish I’d reread the book before seeing the movie last night because — I don’t know — the book was also SO GOOD. πŸ™‚

How’s it going today, babe? I hope you have a great weekend lined up. I’m fueling up on coffee right now to help me through a run, and after that, who knows? Maybe a quick trip to the mall.

I do have to do some grocery shopping and laundry today, but those are my only chores…

Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway. I’ll talk to you soon.

    Is the second hunger games better than the first? πŸ™‚

  2. Liz Moss says:

    I am super excited about the idea of going on a Disney cruise next year!

  3. Kim says:

    I never knew anyone shaved their toes until i got to college and discovered that ALL of my roomates did. They didnt know there were girls who didnt do it. I lucked out that im not hairy…but i pay for it by having thin brows and lashes.

  4. Scarlet says:

    Ahh, Hunger Games.. You and my sisters-in-law would get along great!
    Also, I’ve always wondered how celebrating Thanksgiving is. I imagine it’s great! Dinner with family and being reminded of what you’re thankful for. So for the people that celebrate Thanksgiving… Happy Thanksgiving next week!

  5. Icequeen81 says:

    Left handed,

    yes I shave my big toe , or just take it off with a tweezers.

    did you watch the cartoon serie of Archie I told you about in one of the comments?

  6. Justice Gail says:

    I can’t wait till Naked 3 comes to sephora!

  7. Laurinha says:

    Hi Karen!
    Yes, I wax my big toe. Not no often as my legs, but still……

  8. Olivia K says:

    My fave side is green bean casserole!

  9. Elizabeth S says:

    I love sides!!! But my absolute favorite is stuffing. Yum!!!

  10. Nicole says:

    Is it possible to be semi-ambidextrous… because I think that’s what I am lol.

  11. Morgan says:

    My absolute favorite T-Day side is dressing. My F-I-L makes this oyster dressing that is TO DIE FOR. Runner up would be mashed potatoes – I love all forms of potatoes, except for tater tots!

  12. Candace R. says:

    I loved Hunger Games! I didn’t expect any less. About the toes, yeah I shave mine. Can’t stand hairy toes. :/

  13. Grace says:

    Going to see hunger games today~!

  14. Brandi says:

    i am drinking coffee!!! i loooooove coffee!

  15. Mallory B says:

    My favorite side is stuffing! I always make a bomb-@ss Thanksgiving stuffing, but alas, this is the first year I’m forced to work retail and I will miss the most delicious meal of the year with my family πŸ™

  16. Janet D says:

    Thanks for this giveaway!!!
    Have a good day

  17. CatG says:

    Now that I’m getting your daily emails, I’ve noticed I just love the way you write. Your blog is fun and drama-free and that’s good for when I need a break from grad school!

  18. Kita says:

    I am right handed and find it very difficult to paint my finger nails with my left hand.

  19. Rochelle says:

    i’ve never applied eye makeup without a mirror…I already have enough probs doing it with a mirror

  20. Injla says:

    I love green bean casserole! yum 😎

  21. Emily says:

    I’ve never heard of people shaving their toes XD

  22. Lily H. says:

    I am right-handed!

  23. Julia Mumme says:

    I loooove mac n cheese. I love everything eith melted cheese in it πŸ˜€

  24. Lauren K says:

    I could never do my eye makeup without a mirror – maybe mascara… but even that is tricky!! I won’t even apply a cream shadow without a mirror

  25. Katie W says:

    I’m right handed. I’ve tried to teach myself to be ambidextrous, for the simple fact that it would make painting my nails a hell of a lot easier.

  26. Jamie J says:

    I really enjoy when lipsticks are opaque and my eyeshadows are super pigmented. I think i love Urban decay as a brand for their quality products!

  27. Shannon says:

    I shave my big toe… and I’m feeling better reading comments that other people do too!

  28. Casey says:

    lol, I have NEVER heard of anyone shaving their toes! Don’t get me wrong–I pluck my brows and shave my legs just like the next girl–but I do not understand this trend of women needing to be *completely* free of body hair! No one is looking at your toes people!

  29. N.Hani says:

    I’m right-handed but my mom is ambidextrous!!
    I wished I was too, it really helps when I wanna paint my nail on my own. I usually have my lil’ sis pain them for me!

  30. Margarita says:

    I am a carb-aholic, so I am all about the mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving!

  31. Suzanne Allen says:

    Have you ever played in the snow? Yes…not often as it doesn’t snow here that often
    What’s your favorite Thanksgiving side (mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, etc.)? Mashed potatoes
    Do you ever pluck, wax or shave your toes (yes, your toes)? Shave :)…. Pluck…eek!
    Who makes the best eyeshadow formula (but maybe not necessarily the best colors)? Urban decay/Lorac
    Are you right-handed, left-handed or ambidextrous? Righ handed
    Do you ever apply your eye makeup without a mirror? Who does that? πŸ™‚

  32. Vanessa V says:

    Love the questions you suggested! Right handed, always use a mirror to apply eye makeup, love gravy and mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving, Urban Decay and The Balm make great eye shadows, and I use tweezers πŸ™‚

  33. Elena says:

    Left handed and my favorite side for turkey day is hands down cranberry sauce!! Urban decay has the best shadow formulas-don’t have to use a primer although some of their shadows are not everyday appropriate.

  34. Alexandra says:

    I’m tickled pink by the new Urban Decay Naked 3 palette! Can’t wait to play with the rosy gold shades πŸ™‚

  35. Jennifer says:

    Mashed potatoes, YES!!! Stuffing, YES!!! Cranberry sauce, YES!!!

    If one has hair on one’s toes one needs to remove it before wearing sandals or any open-toed shoe. It’s somewhat shocking to me that some women don’t!

    Cannot apply eye makeup without a mirror but I can apply lip products without one!


  36. Winnie says:

    Anxiously waiting for the arrival of Naked3! It will be my first Naked palette and am so excited.

  37. Melissa says:

    GIIIIIRL, I’m going today to see Catching Fire.

  38. mini says:

    I like coffee too!

  39. Agata says:

    It was just snowing here today but by now the snow is melted.I am not a huge fan of Thanksgiving food but i guess cranberry sauce is my favorite. I hate bread stuffing, it’s so gross.

  40. Tiffanie says:

    I think with a $50 Sephora gift card right now, I would get the Guerlain Les Voilettes pressed powder compact.

  41. Crea says:

    I’m a lefty!

  42. Cynthia says:

    My absolute fave part of Thanksgiving meal is deep fried turkey!! We do two every year to feed the hordes that descend upon our house. Even did it when living in a townhouse. We set up the fryer on the driveway and got endless questions from curious neighbors and visitors. πŸ™‚

  43. Katherine says:

    The only product that I occasionally apply without a mirror is lipgloss. I don’t trust myself to do anything else without one! πŸ™‚

  44. Joanna says:

    Yes to all three toe questions. Don’t judge, im greek.

  45. Sarah says:

    Since I am almost hitting 40, I love to experiment with makeup more so in my younger days.

  46. Danielle says:

    Its so generous of you to do another gift card giveaway. I love both mac an ud shadows but for texture ud wins hands down. I’m still not sure if I should get the naked 3 palette though, I have a very warm skin tone and use my naked palette much more than than the naked 2 so I’m not sure if 3 will be a good match for me.

  47. Jess says:

    Before buying a new beauty product I always read up on reviews. I enjoy yours and find myself poking around and reading more on your blog. Thank you!

  48. Pam says:

    I would buy the Naked3 palette when it comes out!

  49. fanny says:

    I used to play in the snow when I was a child

  50. Jen A says:

    I just recently discovered your blog and I love it! I would definitely buy Naked 3 if I won.

  51. Joanne E. says:

    Mushroom stuffing is my favorite Thanksgiving side dish.

  52. Aylin says:

    Eye makeup without mirror?

  53. Alanna says:

    My favourite side is MASHED POTATOES <3

  54. Amanda says:

    Eyeshadow formula: It’s a toss-up between NARS and MAC, although I haven’t tried Hourglass yet. NARS is so smooth and pigmented.

  55. Chanelle (C.M.) says:

    I wax my big toe if I’m thinking about it. The hair is really fine though.

  56. I applied my makeup without a mirror for the no mirror makeup challenge video. That’s about it.

  57. Kristy says:

    I am so excited for Finnick and the Tributes Parade

  58. Valerie says:

    I need to see Catching Fire! I loved the books and this movie looks like it will be even better than the first. Crossing my fingers for that. πŸ™‚

  59. anisha says:

    Love your blog!

  60. Brandi says:

    Love all t-giving food but my fav is green bean casserole….so bad but so good!

  61. Savannah says:

    I am considering practicing to become ambidextrous solely to ease eyeliner application.

  62. Lisa says:

    I don’t know if I can choose between mashed potatoes and stuffing. UD shadows are very forgiving for me.

  63. Chapril says:

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  64. Gemi says:

    Ugh i wish it would snow this year i live in Texas and we barely ever get snow ):

  65. Jennifer R. says:

    I can not apply eye makeup without looking at a mirror. Unfortunately I don’t have that talent.

  66. Erin says:

    I’m obsessed with the Hourglass ambient light powders. I think I would buy the palette if I won the gift card : )

  67. hanna says:

    I would love to win!

  68. Arlene says:

    I was 23 when I first played in the snow. Californian born Hawaii girl moved to the cold desert in the middle of November 7 years ago and have fallen in love with winter weather. I also LOVE your blog! I’m Filipino so your skin tone matches mine so I truly appreciate your recommendations.

  69. Elizabeth Alam says:

    Watched Catching fire last night… IMHO I wish they had just combined hunger games, catching fire and mocking jay and then divided into 2 movies… My favorite part(s) of CF were
    1) them showing how much Prim and grown
    2) The hope
    3) tribute to Rue

  70. Kori says:

    Bare Minerals eye shadow is the BEST! Soooooo many beautiful colors and the formula is so smooth and light but stays on all day. Happy Thanksgiving Karen!

  71. Colleen Boudreau says:

    I haven’t played in the snow in years.

  72. sienna says:

    totally shave my toes!

  73. Ambritt G says:

    Its hard for me to pick but I’d have to say that Urban Decay has the best formula of the eye shadows that I’ve tried. Most of their shadows are buttery and blend really nice. I love UD products!!

  74. Swati says:

    Love playing in the snow πŸ™‚

  75. Aina Yao says:

    Loved playing in the snow when I was younger! Now it’s a pain in the butt cause when it melts it gets all icey on the roads!

  76. Amber says:

    Stuffing is definitely my favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal!

  77. Kelsey says:

    I love mashed potatoes with loads of gravy for Thanksgiving πŸ™‚ I’m Canadian though, so Thanksgiving has been over for a while! I’m already thinking about Christmas dinner instead πŸ˜€

  78. Melissa says:

    Sweet potatoes and apple pie are definitely my favorite dishes that we have on Thanksgiving! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday Karen!

  79. kirsten says:

    i’m so excited for the hunger games!

  80. April says:

    I hope that it snows where I am this year because I want to see what my puppy will do. This is his first winter πŸ˜€

  81. I Love Snow! but i need to travel to see it πŸ™

  82. Bernice says:

    I sometimes trim my toes because they aren’t hairy but I notice the little hairs on them especially my big toes

  83. Fran says:

    I would only apply my eye makeup without a mirror if I wanted to make someone laugh… what a mess, I’m sure it would be!

  84. Alix says:

    I’m a righty who could never apply eye makeup without a mirror! I do love playing in the snow, though!

  85. Elisa says:

    Love your blog, although I don’t think I’ve ever commented before. I’m super excited about the Naked3 palette, and particularly love the smokey day look you recently posted. With a limited makeup budget, your looks and reviews are quite helpful in making purchase decisions — so thanks for doing such a great job!

  86. hannah says:

    my favorite side dish is jiffy corn pudding! so good

  87. Zenny G says:

    Brand new reader on this site and love your blog post. I currently love the staying power on the nyx matte eyeshadow. The i have a headache shade is great for my eye lid. Currently obsessed πŸ™‚

  88. Krista N says:

    I love all the Christmas food! So so good. And I played in the snow right into my teens :). I’m really just a big kid lol.

  89. Mimi Kitten says:

    I want to see Catching Fire, it looks so good!

  90. Kayleen says:

    Love you, love Tabs, love your blog! Thanks for all the great articles and giveaways. I’m a NorCal girl with Oregon roots, so lots of snow for me πŸ™‚ But I also would ike to mention that makeup without a mirror, although precarious, isn’t so bad. I’ve done my face routine so many times it’s automatic and–if I’m really in a rush–quickly curling my lashes and donning on mascara doesn’t require a mirror.

  91. Rae says:

    Happy almost Turkey day! The best side ever is Maryland style crab dip.

  92. nat ogu says:

    cant wait to see the next hunger games the books were sooo good

  93. MK says:

    I love all sides on Thanksgiving! What makes them special is the fact that I can eat so many of them in one sitting πŸ™‚

  94. BETSY says:

    Thank you for the many mentions of MAC Woodwinked! I had it on yesterday. I mixed it with some shades from UD’s Naked 1 palette, and I kept stealing mirror glances all day at it!

  95. Deborah says:

    I just ordered the UD lipstick in Naked on your recommendation! So excited.

  96. Yvonne says:

    Sweet potato casserole with toasty marshmallows πŸ™‚

  97. YUMNA says:

    I am right handed, actually, my name meant the right side. YUMNA=RIGHT.

  98. jenna d says:

    I go sledding every winter. My favorite Thanksgiving side is stuffing.

  99. Grace Gonzales says:

    Catching Fire was amazing!

  100. stacy says:

    You always look so sophisticated Karen. Kudos to you.

  101. Pansy says:

    favorite thanksgiving side is cornbread. YUM.. wait, is that a thanksgiving side?

  102. Rachel says:

    I loved Catching Fire as well! The book to movie adaptation was done so, so well. I’m glad the same director will stay for Mockingjay pts 1 and 2. Did you have a favorite scene or costume from the movie? I really liked the arena wetsuits this time around, but some of the gowns were lovely too.

  104. Erin says:

    My favorite thanksgiving side is mashed potatoes or the homemade rolls my uncle makes every year. I shave my toes once a week. I really love Urban Decay’s eye shadows, as well as The Balm’s and Pur Minerals, but I keep hearing good things about hourglass so I will have to try their eye shadow duos soon.

  105. Kiara says:

    No I have never played in the snow, I love mashed potatoes as a side dish, I love MAC shadows(I can suppose we all know why), I do pluck my toes and I love your blog! <3


  106. My favorite eyeshadow formula is Urban Decay-although sometimes the colors can be a bit glittery, they are so pigmented and gorgeous!

  107. Siobhan says:

    I love building snow forts in the winter, they’re probably the reason I’m becoming an architect now!

  108. nlm8 says:

    Favorite Thanksgiving side: pumpkin pie!

  109. shah'ada says:

  115. Miki says:

    UD and Lorac eyeshadow ftw!

  116. camille says:

    Karen! Good weekend to you all!

    I watched the first Hunger Games, and I really enjoyed it! I wish I read the book first, though. Is it a quick read? I might read the second one, and then watch the movie. I love Jennifer Lawrence, also. She’s such a grounded celebrity πŸ™‚

  117. Colleen says:

    I devoured the hunger games books. They grabbed hold and I could not get enough. Sad there were only 3 books.

  118. Rita Morgan says:

    Brussels sprout with chestnut is my favorite side dish , is Sweetpotato Pie count as a side dish? πŸ™‚

  124. Stephanie G says:

    I love playing in the snow! πŸ™‚

  125. noemii says:

    Today was a really long day. someone quit at the beginning of the day leaving everyone else to pick up the slack. during the holiday season no less! it was a hectic day at a portrait studio. sorry for venting on your page -.-

  130. Victoria says:

    I can’t wait to go see catching fire!!!

  131. Isabel V says:

    I can’t think of a time I ever tried to apply my eye makeup without a mirror! It’s hard enough for me not to stab myself in the eye when channeling my inner jedi and doing my darndest to concentrate. I also get awkwardly close to my mirror like I’m closing in on a good-night kiss, because I’m pretty blind without my specs.

    I recently read your post on the Essence gel liner, by the way, and snapped it up this morning. It’s a pretty dreamy steal! Thanks for the awesome heads-up!

  132. dipanwita says:

    look forward to win the prize….

  133. Katy Mayerson says:

    Eek! I wouldn’t shave my toes!

  134. Erin says:

    I know EVERYONE on the planet would say that Urban Decay makes the best eye shadows, and while I am a fan of the UD Naked palettes, right now I am in LOVE with Too Faced shadows!! The Too Faced Loves Sephora 15 Years of Beauty Palette is currently rocking my world! I find Too Faced shadows blend even better than UD!! I also loooove Stila eye shadows. In the Garden is my absolute favorite palette EVER.

  135. Catherine says:

    I adored the hunger games – Team Peeta!

  136. Neko says:

    I loved Catching Fire!!! The makeup and hair in that movie was SO on point. I tried to copy one of Katniss’s looks using–quite aptly–Shiro Cosmetic’s Girl on Fire eyeshadow combined with some other red shadows.

  137. Nika says:

    Just saw Catching Fire last night and it was awesome! I’ve been a fan of the books for the longest time! P.S. I’m still and will always be rooting for Gale!

  138. Katelyn says:

    It’s hard to choose a favorite Thanksgiving side dish…if gravy counts, then it’s gravy for sure!

  139. emily says:

    i am so nervous about the christmas season. i haven’t done any shopping. I DIDN’T PLAN WELL.

  140. Denise says:

    I’ve played in the snow before, but I much prefer to watch the snow fall from indoors with a mug of hot cocoa.

  141. Megs says:

    I shave my toes! ekk! My hairy secret is out. With $50, I would buy Urban Decay lipstick. I have F-Bomb and Shame. I would get Venom and 69

  142. Sarah W says:

    I’m definitely not brave enough to work without a mirror!

  143. Vanessa says:

    I love mashed potatoes!

  144. Sheryl says:

    I cried for half of Catching Fire. Such a good movie!

  145. Justine says:

    I just saw Catching Fire!

  146. Alisson says:

    I ALWAYS play in the snow! I absolutely love snow, so much! πŸ™‚
    The only time I’ve ever applied eye shadow without a mirror was using a cream shadow that required little work, swipe and go.

  147. Ruth says:

    Yup, shave my big toes!

  148. Yes, eye makeup without a mirror only in the most dire of circumstances.

  149. Carolyn N. says:

    I love my mash potatoes and gravy! Throw in some stuffing and turkey, and I’m good to go!

  150. Renee ^_^ says:

    i hope that i win the gift card! i neeeed a clarisonic in my life and i will buy it with the gift card if i win since it knocks at least half of the cost off of it. i’m over my problem skin πŸ™

  151. marlena says:

    I have definitely waxed and shaved my toes, usually during the summer or before wearing open-toed shoes.

  152. Susan says:

    I saw Hunger Games: Catching Fire a few nights ago and loved it! My favourite eyeshadow formula are the Body Shop eyeshadows, and I’ve only played in the snow a few times because it doesn’t snow here πŸ™‚

  153. Solangel says:

    Omg Catching Fire was TOO good. Like, it’s the only movie I need this year because it was amazing.

  154. mrsshukra says:

    Excited about T-Day, my favorite holiday! ANd no, can’t apply eye make up without a mirror!

  155. Ashleigh says:

    Hey Karen! Lurker of your site but this giveaway giving me an excuse to comment πŸ™‚ New lip product junkie and loving your posts about nails, makeup, and well, everything! It all looks so fabulous on you and I have to take a step back sometimes and realize that no, what looks great on your beautiful skin tone and dark hair would look cray-zay with my red hair and fair skin (sad faces for the fuschia lipsticks…). Keep up the awesome work!

  156. renee musick says:

    I havent shaved my toes in a few years but when I was younger I did it every week, it’s hard to do the shaving dance now. I have not seen snow in almost twenty years, I don’t miss the cold of NJ but it was fun, but I did move to AZ because I had had enough snow. I wish my kids got to experience a white Christmas though so that’s my only regret. thanks for the giveaway! I know exactly what I plan on getting even if I don’t win!

  157. Kimberley says:

    Not so excited about Thanksgiving, traveling north and there is already snow. Brrrr….But I do love the mashed potatoes and gravy.

  158. Miriam says:

    I like sephora’s eyeshadow. It lasts pretty well, especially with a primer. Its also great to set eyeliner with.

  159. ashley says:

    You know you’re idea question about the toes…kinda gave me the thought if you’ve ever had those deep pore pimples in your armpits? They are the worst. Having 2 now -.-” don’t question my hygiene, please haha

  160. Bonnie says:

    I have been known to shave my big toes on occasion, as they can get hairy…

  161. Andrea says:

    I loved Catching Fire too!

  162. Lisa says:

    I do have to shave my big toe every once in a while, one of the downsides of being Sicilian. πŸ™

  163. Tamica says:

    I am right handed, but have tried to teach myself to do things left handed because I always wanted to be ambidextrous.
    If you call clearing/cleaning snow from my car “playing”, then yes I have played in the snow.

  164. Erin says:

    I miss snow! Used to love walking around in it when I lived on the east coast. I live in Seattle now, where snow is a rare and short-lived treat (though it’s also extremely dangerous because the city doesn’t clean it up). Hoping to get a little of it this winter!

    I’m dying to see Catching Fire! I’m out of the States, so I’m going to have to wait quite a while.

    Thanks for the giveaway! x

  166. Jennifer Pham says:

    I get to finally see Catching Fire today πŸ™‚ Excited.

  167. As always, I am in! I play in the snow a lot! It’s actually snowing here since last week, so whenever I feel like making a snow angel or a snow man I can just go outside and do it πŸ™‚

    I do shave my toes in the summer.

  169. Liz says:

    If I ever did my makeup without a mirror, I don’t expect the results would be very good…

  170. Taylor says:

    can’t wait to see catching fire!!!

  171. kay says:

    I can’t wait to see catching fire, but I’m debating rereading the book first also.

  172. My husband and I are going to see Catching Fire today! I can’t wait!

  173. Kay says:

    I love playing in the snow!

  174. Daniella says:

    Its funny that you bring up *toe hair* I plucked my big toes just yesterday. I’m not too much of a hairy gal elsewhere, but the few hairs on my big toes grow LONG. Ugh πŸ˜€
    And stuffing with cranberry jelly is my fave side. Yum! This year I’m going to try to make a cornmeal muffin stuffing πŸ™‚

  175. Lindsey O. says:

    I love mashed potatoes so much, but stuffing would have to be my favorite side. I just recently saw snow for the first time ever. It was exciting! πŸ™‚

  176. Ioana says:

    I love the cranberry sauce with orange from Trader Joe’s!

  177. Amy says:

    I’m right handed but I’ve always wanted to be ambidexterous. I used to try to teach myself how to properly write with my left hand but no luck so far. Happy Holidays!

  178. Yes, I’ve played in the snow many times.

  179. Sarah says:

    I love playing in the snow, but I do not love driving in it.

  180. FreshEyre says:

    Right handed – wish I was ambidextrous, though – my left is just about useless…
    Best eyeshadows ? Stila and Urban Decay and MAC – all too good to just pick one !
    For Thanksgiving I’m a mashed potato girl all the way – Go Taters !!!

  181. Ralitza says:

    I’ve played in the snow when I was young. And now I hate snow and winter – the snow is only 2 days away from us… πŸ™

  182. caise says:

    I’m left handed:)

  183. Joselyn says:

    Every Christmas my mother gets my sister and I an ornament. It usually represents something during the year but sometimes she gets it just because it’s really pretty.

  184. Amy says:

    I shaved my big toe once lol It’s just super fine blonde hair though. It doesn’t even matter.

  185. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    I grew up in the snow ~ living in Green Bay, Wisconsin and throughout Michigan! As much as I loved it as a child, I couldn’t wait to move away to someplace warmer when I became an adult. I got as far as Indianapolis (lol), which still gets snow, but not nearly as much as being right on the Great Lakes in the winter… I love the heavy snow that coats all the trees and makes everything look like a beautiful postcard. Unfortunately, most of the time it looks nothing like that when it snows!

  186. Lisa Brown says:

    i hate the snow

  187. Katrina says:

    I play in the snow every year – it makes me feel like a kid again.

  188. Kris says:

    LOVE your questions!! I now know that I’m not alone in having to shave my big toes. Let in sunshine in…..

  189. Tina says:

    I’m right handed! But I shave my ugly toes πŸ™

    Hi karen, hope you are having a great weekend. I’m left handed πŸ˜‰ and I have to say I love LORAC shadows, they are so creamy and pigmented and blend easily.

  192. mariam says:

    favorite thanksgiving side: mashed potatoes or any pumpkin dessert!

  193. Anna says:

    I shave my big toes. Though honestly, talking about toes grosses me out.

  194. Glynda says:

    I actually love mixed greens! Swiss chard, kale, mustard greens! Can you believe it?

  195. Ann says:

    I’m known for my stuffing! πŸ™‚

  196. Elsa says:

    Yes, I have played in the snow :), I’m ambidextrous and my favorite Thanksgiving side is mashed potatoes with gravy πŸ™‚ Yums πŸ™‚

    I never apply eye make-up without a mirror, I’m too afraid I’ll poke myself in the eye and possible go blind….

  198. Nikki says:

    I love the Hunger Games series – haven’t watched the second movie yet, but I think I am going to reread the second book before i go. Great idea πŸ™‚

  199. Paulomi says:

    Hi Karen, Absolutely love your blog and am a regular silent follower πŸ™‚ I tried your fall fairy look, which I fell in love with when I saw the pics…I’d love to send you my look since you were the inspiration…let me know how I should share it. And yes, I do shave my big toe and didn’t realize anyone else did or wud ask about it πŸ˜› And yes once I did my whole makeup in a moving car without a mirror! Impressed myself! πŸ˜€

    I do wax my toes, except in the winter! They appreciate the warmth πŸ™‚

  201. Veronica says:

    I just read your post on how to take a great selfie. Great tips!
    I actually do have a DMV photo that looks fantastic — it was right after I moved from the snowy Midwest to sunny California, and I look at least 5 years younger than in my previous driver’s license photo! I want to keep this one forever.

  202. Greta says:

    Oooh! If I were to win this I think I might treat myself to Guerlain’s lipstick in my namesake, Greta!

  203. Kelsey says:

    I’m so excited to see catching fire – may the odds be ever in your favour!

  204. Julie B. says:

    I love stuffing, even the Stove Top kind.
    And I would never ever try to put on eye makeup without a mirror, I’m klutzy enough as it is.

  205. Stacy Z says:

    UD makes the best eyeshadow! πŸ™‚

  206. Emily says:

    I love playing in the snow but haven’t done it in years.

  207. dani says:

    Mashed sweet potatoes with sugared pecan topping. I’m surprised no one has mentioned this before…

  208. Emma says:

    I’ve played in the snow countless times! I’m from Northern Ontario so we have plenty of it. The novelty usually wears off by mid-January and I start dreaming of sweater weather!

  209. Jody says:

    I’ve never applied eye makeup without a mirror. It seems impossible!

  212. Barbara says:

    Thanks for another contest, Karen! So many cool things I’d buy… I’ve never applied eye makeup w/o a mirror, but definitely lipgloss. Can’t wait to see Catching Fire. Loved all the books.

  213. Kathy says:

    Yes, I have played in the snow and I love it! What I love even more is coming in from the cold and having a hot toddy and watching the snow fall.

  214. Melissa says:

    I’m so excited for this giveaway!

  215. Brianna says:

    My favorite side is anything other than a casserole.

    Winter’s here! Already had to shovel once!

    I’m left handed and I always apply my eye make-up with a mirror.

  227. Megan says:

    I’m right-handed.

  228. Peta says:

    Today is the start of my last week of university classes for the year!! I’m so glad it’s nearly over. Hmm I am right handed but I can paint my nails with my left hand really well now, changin my polish daily has trained my left hand I think.

  229. Marta says:

    I love pumpkin bread pudding!

  230. Rina says:

    I put the Christmas tree and stockings up today. Earliest I’ve done it in years!

  232. Melissa says:

    Fingers crossed i win!

  233. Ceja Hall says:

    During thanksgiving my favorite side is Cranberry Sauce! I LOVVVE Cranberry Sauce! I think it’s because I love cranberries and it makes me sad the only time I can really find it is during this holiday, but every time I do I always end up getting a ridiculous amount of cans! Well, hey if anyone runs out they know who to come to! lol

  234. Bunny says:

    Have you ever played in the snow? – Of course! I’m Canadian after all.

    Stuffing is my favourite side!

  235. Jennifer says:

  238. Nicole says:

    Cranberry sauce.

  239. Maegan Morin says:

    I play in the snow with my kids whenever we get the chance! (and when its not ridiculously cold outside lol). We get about 7 months of snow here and were the snowmobiling type as well. So yah theres a lot of snow in our lives.

  240. Jillian says:

    I want Naked 3 soooo badly because I’ve never had
    A naked palette before!!!

  241. Kara says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I would love to get my hands on any of the Naked palettes!

  242. Amanda Hess says:

    I’ve been eyeing so many things at Sephora lately. Your reviews really help me pick out the winners from the losers. πŸ™‚

  243. Danielle says:

    Yes, I shave my toes sometimes.

  244. Mireya says:

    I only eat stuffing at Thanksgiving, so I always look forward to that. I don’t know why I never want it any other time of year, but it’s just one of those holiday things to me.

  245. Amanda says:

    haha i’m right handed and I’ve never applied my makeup without a mirror. I love your blog! I hope I can create my own blog one day!


  246. Rosemarie says:

  247. Andrea Amy says:

    Well, we already had Thanksgiving last month (Canada) but I love baked acorn squash with brown sugar, Brussel sprouts with cheese sauce, and mashed sweet potatoes and gravy πŸ™‚ Plus stuffing (dressing). Lots of stuffing πŸ™‚

  248. Jennifer says:

    I’ve done a lot of playing in the snow. And driving in it. And shoveling it. We had some last night.

  249. Heather USA (Rafflecopter: Rosie Areola) says:

  250. Judy says:

    I love Ocean Spray canned jellied Cranberry Sauce. Grew up on it and could never convert to the “fresh” or lumpy cranberry sauces πŸ™‚

  251. Julia Laidler says:

    I cannot apply my eye makeup without a mirror. But I often apply lipstick and gloss without a mirror and it looks good when I check later. xx

  252. Cezka says:

    Oddly enough, I didn’t like the second book as much as the 1st & last one, but Catching Fire (movie) was pretty bomb.com I will say!!! πŸ˜€ There were scenes in the book that were played out perfectly in the movie! Also, I’ve learned to enjoy the formula of LORAC eyeshadows the most, they just last the longest considering how creamy they feel IMO, hehe

  253. Crystal says:

    Stuffing is my favorite Thanksgiving side! …btw that ad for Loreal with Tabs in it is hilarious!

  254. Kylie says:

    I could never put on eyemakeup without a mirror! I did see a woman putting on mascara in her sunvisor mirror going about 30 behind me driving to work last week. Eek!
    Too Faced makes my favorite eyeshadow formula.

  255. Ellen says:

    Saving up for the Naked 3 palette!

  262. BooBooNinja says:

  263. Jessica says:

    Me and my daughter love playing in the snow.

  264. Mahdi Martin says:

    I played in the snow once, when I went on a ski trip in Colorado when I was twelve. It was so much fun!

  265. Bridget Heiple Reich says:

    I have played in the snow. I am right handed and I love mashed potatoes! πŸ™‚

  267. Catarina Belissa says:

    Ihave never played in the snow and sometimes I shave my toes…

  268. Lynn says:

    yes, got to shave or pluck the piggies. people are so cruel otherwise

  269. Mich says:

    My favorite side is mashed potatoes. I eat an embarrassing amount at Thanksgiving.

  270. Natasha P. says:

    Fave Thanksgiving side (and probably side for always) is mashed potatoes.. Don’t know what it is about ’em, but I looooove me some mashed taters!

  271. Sherille says:

    Pecan tarts are my favorite Thanksgiving side, if you count desserts as a side dish πŸ˜‰

  272. Nikita says:

    Favorite Thanksgiving side? That’s a tough one, but if I have to pick only one it’s going to be mashed potatoes. SO GOOD.

  273. Brooke says:

    I grew up with snow, but since then, moved to the desert (no snow). I miss it sometimes though.

  274. auroragyps says:

    I admit to tweezing my toes and the couple of hairs that grow on the top of my foot. It’s just easier.

  275. Elijah says:

    I could not imagine putting on any kind of makeup with no mirror… the majority of lipstick I won’t even apply without a mirror. And uhhh yeeeaa I do shave my big toe in summer. If I’m going to get a pedicure. Its not that bad but I feel self conscious!!

  276. Kristen says:

    My favorite Thanksgiving side is my grandmother’s stuffing. It’s a family recipe that’s been passed down each generation. Sadly, my grandmother is no longer with us, but each year I carry on the tradition by making her stuffing. I look forward to it every year!

  277. Amy says:

    I love to cook! I already have the brine for my turkey

  278. Nicole Clark says:

    I have to pluck my eyebrows at least twice a week to prevent werewolf brows.

  279. Jahmaiah says:

    I love stuffing muffins!

  280. Toria Mason says:

    Yepp, I’ve played in the snow! But sadly not often. It’s usually a rainy or icy winter, not often to have snow here.

    My favorite Thanksgiving side is yams with marshmallows. Yum!

    hahaha This post has made me feel soo less weird! I do shave my toesies. Legs, arms, under arms, toes, fingers…if there’s hair, I’m shaving it. I hate looking at it! It makes me feel so unwomanly. And when I take photos of my nail art or swatches, I don’t want to be distracted by all the furriness (that I know I’m probably the only one who would notice but…I’m the one who matters, right? haha) Same with photographing shoes etc. But yeah, I definitely get rid of it.

    I love smooth creamy eyeshadow formulas. But also pigmentation and blendability.

    I’m right-handed. Really wish I was ambidextrous! Would be such a life saver. haha

    I’ve never applied makeup without a mirror. I think I’d be too paranoid. Maybe I would do it for a silly video to see how well I do. haha But not for going out or anything.

  281. Sarah says:

    Love mashed potatoes and gravy.

  282. Maria J. says:

    I Love Mashed Potatoes with Gravy and a Biscuit as My favorite side.

  283. Mariposamaquillage says:

  285. Maria C. says:

    I never really got into the Hunger Games πŸ™ But everyone around me talks obsessively about it!

  286. Bcteagirl says:

    I barely trust myself with tinted lipgloss without a mirror, let alone eye makeup!

  287. Bhevarri says:

    Last day at work today! WOOOO!!

  288. Valerie C. says:

    I’m making my sausage stuffing, we eat it all in about 15 minutes πŸ™‚

  289. Melinda L. says:

    I have played in the snow. And I would never try to apply eye makeup without a mirror, I’m not even that great with a mirror to begin with

  290. ChoxRox says:

    I am DYING for some of those black friday sephora sales =D

  291. Yolanda C. says:

    I do shave my big toe every now and then! When I remember or the little hairs become visible. I might start shaving my boyfriends toe hairs….those suckers are long!

  292. Cece says:

    Thanks for sharing this giveaway! Your so kind and generous. I love the content on this blog and always look forward to your updates. Take care and see u later!

  293. Efrain says:

    Do you ever pluck, wax or shave your toes (yes, your toes)?

    I have done it before but I always forget to do it again so I’m not doing it again; I have to take advantage of being a guy and don’t have the necessity of doing it.

  294. Whitney says:

    We don’t get snow often in SC (maybe once per year and it’s only a couple of inches), but I’ve been skiing in WV and hiking in CO. Plenty of snow there! My favorite side is CRANBERRY SAUCE! I always make it for the fam. Trying a new recipe this year with maple syrup and cinnamon… perhaps a little orange zest? Gotta keep it fresh!

    I love the snow! I live in Canada and we got 1.5 feet of snow last night!

  301. Michelle Teixeira says:

    I don’t shave very often because I am not very hairy. When I first heard my friends talking about waxing their upper lip I was confused. Then they asked what my secret was for staying so smooth. And, it is just genetics so I did not have any tips for them.

  302. Angelina says:

    My favorite Thanksgiving aid is stuffing! YUMMY

  303. Polly says:

    What a COLD, WINDY day!!!

  304. Debbie says:

    It’s just not Thanksgiving dinner for me without cranberry sauce. I’m right-handed & I enjoy watching left-handed people do tasks of writing, etc. They make everything look more fun!

  305. Jenna Osborne says:

    I love playing in the snow, all crazy Calvin and Hobbes style!

  306. Claudia Davis says:

    when I get my legs waxed, she does check my toes to see if I need a cleaning LOL !!!!!

  307. Sandy says:

    I don’t like driving in the snow so I don’t look forward to it. I couldn’t apply makeup, not even lipstick, without a mirror. I bought a magnifying mirror recently to use for makeup and tweezing! This was a cute post Karen!

  308. Julie P. says:

  318. Wendy Lange says:

    I have a 9-year-old, so playing in the snow is mandatory almost every nice winter day. I love stuffing, mashed potatoes, & glazed carrots. Never had to worry about toe hair yet. I’m a rightie and I absolutely need a mirror to apply my makeup.

    funny u ask about hair removal from toes. whenever I soak/pamper my feet (which is rare), I find like 4 hairs to pluck ….usually 2 hairs per big toe. always been embarrassed of that. lol.

  327. S says:

    I haven’t seen catching fire yet, but i can’t wwait until i do!

  328. Mardi says:

    When I use my epilator I run it over my toes. They only have a couple of hairs so I don’t worry about shaving them if I haven’t been epilating because I usually cut them if I do!

  329. Peta says:

    I’m from a tropical island so the first time I experienced snow as an adult I had to play in it! I’m a vegetarian so sides are my thing! Sweet Potato wins all the time:) I shave my toes every time I wear sandals (I don’t like hair, too bad I’m hairy!) I would like to think I am ambidextrous but I’m really just right-handed.

    I’m right handed, i wish i could use both though haha. I dont know how being ambidextrous would help with makeup application though… o_o

  335. Sherry says:

    OMG…I do shave my toes from time to time. I usually do it more in the summer, because of wearing flip flops all the time. My big toe has a few stray hairs…it’s really hilarious!! One time, way back when, when I was only about 24, I was getting a pedicure, and the technician said to me, do you shave your toes? It was so embarrassing…I think she felt the stubble. LOL

    favorite thanksgiving side has got to be greenbean casserole with mushroom cream sauce! i do the fancy gourmet version nowadays but when i was younger i would not hesitate to scarf down a heaping portion of canned green beans with can of cream of mushroom.

  352. Rebecca says:

    Sometimes I apply makeup without a mirror! But what takes some real skill is when you need to apply a full face of photoshoot-ready makeup in a teeny car mirror while your boyfriend drives a stick shift turbo Jetta down I-91 in stop & go traffic. Yep.

  353. Denise F says:

    I love sweet potatoes with marshmellows!!

    I’m so excited about the Naked 3 Palette. I did not order the palette the day it was released because I was going to wait until it was released in stores so I could use a gift card. However, I really want this palette and am just going to cave in and order it once Urban Decay restocks it on their website.

  367. mariem says:

    i love stuffing with cranberry sauce. and sephora. both. a lot!

  368. Maren says:

    I HAVE done my eye MU without a mirror! While walking down the street one time, I pulled out a greasy dark gray/black jumbo crayon and just went good-crazy. Was about to go to dinner and didn’t want to feel naked.

  383. Lisa M. says:

    I pluck the hair on my big toes and then cut the hair on the rest with manicure scissors. Uggg.

    Have a great Thanksgiving Karen and Tabs !! El Hub too!

  384. Renee T says:

    Morning Karen,
    I love mashed potatoes with a lil cranberry sauce thrown in. I train myself to be ambidextrous for makeup application purposes. The right side always ends up looking better so I rouse leftie to rise to the challenge.

    Thanks, Karen!

  390. Jenny says:

    I’m right handed!

  391. Majick says:

    I am almost ambidextrous (can do more with my right).
    I wax my big toe when I get my legs waxed.
    I love LORAC and they are certainly stepping up their game in the color department (LORAC is really great when you start to get that crepe texture on your lids).
    My favorite THanksgiving side? OMG, it depends on who’s house I’m at. LOL My SIL makes a mean pinapple stuffing that goes great with ham. SHe tries to make me eat broccoli casserole but I’m not down with that shiz. LOL
    AND – my MOM by far made the best EVER candied sweet potatoes! MISS YOU MOM!

  392. Rina says:

    Love playing in the snow. Don’t really have a favorite sidedish, it’s the one time of year I like letting the flavored mix though!

  393. Karina says:

    I didn’t know so many people shaved their toes lol. Now I want to take a look at my toes and see if I should shave too!

  394. CQ says:

    I have totally shaved my big toes before. Hair is blonde, but I can see it & it bugs me!

    I’m left handed, but seeing as so many things are designed for right handed people I’m kinda ambidextrous for a lot of things. πŸ™‚ Hope you have a great Turkey Day!

    I know it’s weird but I just love Stove Top stuffing with my Thanksgiving meal. Hope you and Tabs have a wonderful holiday!

  408. Chelsea says:

    Living in the South means playable snow technical term, is rare. Icy, hard-packed, frozen-with-a-crust-so-you-slip-every-step snow is what we get. It’s upsetting, to say the least.

  409. Sarah says:

    I grew up in northern Minnesota, so I’ve enjoyed playing in a lot of snow! πŸ™‚

  410. Rachel P says:

    Have you ever played in the snow? – ALL THE TIME as a child! And sometimes to this day πŸ™‚ I live in the wintery north of Michigan, where most of our calendar year is snow-globed. I just got my snow tires put on today.

  411. Barbara says:

    My husband makes a great creamy three-cheese cholesterol-filled scalloped potato recipe for Thanksgiving each year.

  412. Barbara says:

    Pumpkin pie!

  413. Anhchi Nguyen says:

    Stuffing is my jam on Thanksgiving…

  414. michele l says:

    i alws go out side and play in the first snow with luck that will be tonight!!!

  415. Marie says:

    Happy Monday! ( A little pick-me-up for this Monday!) BUT it’s Turkey-day this week! πŸ˜€ I really love sashimi (a not so ordinary Thanksgiving side), but salmon sashimi is always my favorite side ( i know, i know). LOL.

    This coming Thanksgiving family party, i will be sporting my fave eye make-up palette, the Naked 1! Can i get a “oh yeah!”?? LOL.
    I am anticipating Naked 3, but i seem to be out of the loop of when it’s actually out in stores. I went to a Sephora near me and asked an employee when it will be out, she looked at me as if i’ve lived under a rock for years. ;\
    Anyways, can’t wait to watch Catching Fuego! I will definitely take your word for it! πŸ˜€ Happy week!

  416. Claire says:

    I’m not ashamed to say I’ve taken tweezers to my big toe. Ouch!

    I have one random hair on my big toe that I pluck. I call it the lone hair.

  431. Rachel says:

    My favorite side at Thanksgiving is the rolls!

  432. Janea says:

    I’m a rightie!

  433. Jennifer M-K says:

    Have you ever played in the snow? Of course! My sister and I used to build igloos and snow sculptures besides your typical snowman πŸ™‚

    What’s your favorite Thanksgiving side (mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, etc.)? OMG!!! Don’t make me choose! I’d say its a toss-up between cranberry sauce and candied yams…crap now I’m hungry….and on call at work for thanksgiving πŸ™

    Btw…I agree Catching Fire was a great movie. I think it was more true to the books than the first movie. Ughh I want them to hurry up and film mockingjay b/c this whole wait a year thing is killing me! I’m so excited for that one but I have a bad feeling it may get split into 2 movies to try and minimize how much they cut out this time thus extending my annual torture…le sigh. Can we just fast forward to the next release date?

  434. Ruth says:

    Yes I do shave my toes lol

  435. louise says:

    have i ever played in the snow? yes..i miss the days when snow meant play and now they mean someone has to dig my car out…/sob!!!

    Catching Fire was AWESOME. Can we take a moment to appreciate the insane use of eyelashes in this movie?

  447. Nicolle says:

    I’m going to finally see my boyfriend after 5 months. He lives in Spain and I in Puerto Rico (we met when I studied abroad). I still wonder how is it possible that I am so in love with a person that I have spend less then half of our relationship (1 year and 9 months) physically together. Let me tell you half of the time it is almost impossible, but that little thread of hope is good enough for me. I am so excited and have been rounding up everything I want to take there (he needs to see me in the best light possible). Love looking at your blog because it helps me with amazing products that I can take (I blame you for those $65 on the Nars blush palette, totally worth it).

    Yes, I have played with snow. Forget about sides, main, desserts, whatever… thanksgiving is not complete without sweet potato with marshmallows. Guilty as charged, plucked, waxed and shaved my toes (yes, my toes). Best eyeshadow formula: it used to be UD but after the Lorac Pro palette, Lord Jesus I have converted!!! Right handed. I tried it (makeup without mirror), and looked like a mess!

  448. Jen says:

    I have never really applied eye makeup without a mirror.
    Mascara wand – mirror = Dangerous in my case haha.

  449. Jamie C. says:

    I Shave the hair that is on my toes just because it’s so much faster in my personal experience.

    I miss playing in the snow!
