A Makeup and Beauty Blog Sephora giveaway!

NOTE TO SELF: Typing is kind of hard when you’re wearing gloves…even if they’re fingerless and have an extremely cute snow leopard-print pattern.


My inner cat lady mistakenly assumed that kitty-print gloves would be more conducive to typing.

Yup, we live and learn…

I broke down and got those Betsey Johnson black and gray leopard-print knit gloves we talked about earlier this week. You remember — I was tempted the first time I saw them, but I forgot the gift card I wanted to use at home.

At the time I figured that if the universe wanted me to have fingerless leopard gloves in my life, the gloves would still be at Nordstrom on my next visit, and lo-and-behold, they were! ๐Ÿ™‚

Now, you might be wondering why I’m wearing them inside the house to type. Well…why not? I’m in the kitchen, which is the coldest room in the house, and it’s particularly chilly this morning (I’m wearing a parka and gloves to make coffee and type).

But that’s not even the funniest part. Get this: the thermostat is set for 65 degrees…so on the global scheme of things, it really ain’t that cold in here, haha! I’m just not designed for cold.

So what’s on your plate today? Other than staying warm, I have a few chores to do (Blergh! Although I do love having a clean bathroom…) and some Christmas shopping, and hopefully I’ll have time to film one or two new videos. I’ve really been enjoying the video thing so far and want to keep exploring.

Before you get going, don’t forget to enter this week’s Sephora giveaway, even if it’s just one entry by logging into the widget and leaving a comment. You never know — this could be your week.

  106. Anne White says:

    My hands down fave Starbucks drink is a Viente Vanilla Latte, extra foam, sprinkle a little cinnamon and vanilla powder on top…and it may sound weird but I ask them to make it at 140 degrees. It’s referred to usually as “drinkable”. (they normally brew their drinks to 160 degrees but for me I always end up waiting then for it to cool off a little). ๐Ÿ™‚

  107. Ahaha. I’m supposed to be working on converting a long-neglected website over to a WordPress platform. Instead, I’m entering contests, and laughing my head off at your L’Oreal tabby cat. My favourite Starbucks drink is mocha frappucino, skinny. But it’s too cold for that, and I live 200km from the nearest Starbucks, so I’m drinking coffee, goofing around on the computer and watching the snow come down.

  108. Yoselyn Sanchez says:

    My go too grab and go products are definitely some sort of BBcream, I’ve been using Flower by Drew Berrymore and I’ve been loving Elizabeth Arden mascara, does all it should for my lashes in one coat! These are the things I at least wear to class, even during finals week

  156. Wendy Lange says:

    My favorite snacks are potato chips and at Starbucks I like to have Caramel Macchiatos.

    For a quick natural make-up look I use a bit of lip gloss, blush, eyebrow colour, and mascara.

    Iโ€™ve never been on the radio or on a TV show and donโ€™t have any scrunchies.

    Anywhere can be peaceful when you meditate but for a natural location, I love a small cascading waterfall & swimming spot that is remote and only accessible by mountain bike that I like because it is truly beautiful.

  164. Bunny says:

    My favourite movie snack is Sour Patch Kids, they wreck your mouth for the next day or two though. LOL

  165. Katrina says:

    I have two scrunchies that I’ve used since the 90’s and I freak out thinking about life without them.

  166. LIsaT says:

    Favorite movie snack-a mix of Swedish fish, I salted almonds and pepperidge farm pretzel goldfish

  167. Tania G says:

    I am all about popcorn, ice cream bar and sour patch kids at the movies ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s snowing hard here today, looks beautiful but not looking forward to all the clean up and driving in it. Have a great weekend!

    Just found your blog today when I was googling around some product reviews and I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚ Subscribed, even though I know that is a bad idea because I will probably go out and buy every single makeup item you recommend.

  172. Raven Reynolds says:

    I love earl gray tea but all the Starbucks around me make horrible tea! Especially the ‘london fog’. I thought it would be yummy but it was just bland… and too hot!

  176. Amanda says:

    My essential, everyday throw-on-and-go makeup product is a sheer red lip balm/tint/whatever. A sheer red is hard to mess up and doesn’t look too “done,” but it still makes a simple face look more polished.

  177. JoJo says:

    When I go to the movies I usually get a pretzel or frozen yoghurt or share popcorn with my friends.

  178. PS says:

    0 Scrunchies for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  198. Dollie says:

    I’ve been on radio AND TV. I had my own weekly show for kids on radio when I was around 6/7yrs old. And took part in soooo many TV game shows…won most of them too. What I really enjoyed about that was seeing the makeip artist open his/her vanity case and seeing all the makeup in it. And of course, having my makeup done….hehe.. always a fun thing.

  199. Carrie says:

  226. Erin says:

    The nearby Cinerama makes chocolate popcorn, and you can either get it by itself or mixed with regular buttered popcorn. I was wary of it at first, but now I crave it … it tastes like Cocoa Krispies. Hands down, it’s my favorite movie snack.

  252. Kristina says:

    WEll I like the question- what is your throw-on-and-go makeup products….because, when you have a baby…very much there does not exist a long careful procedure with make up anymore. So the answer is MAC Paint pots, Maybelline Color Tattoos and Benefit and MUFE cream eye shadows ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Holydays!

  253. mary says:

    I loved the interview with Jerrod of Two Faced! He sounds like a wonderful and fun person and I am interested in checking out all of the makeup he talked about.

    My favorite drink is Greentea Frap

  259. Dagmara says:

    throw-on-and-go products are just a bit concealer if needed, mascara, blush and a bolder but low-maintenance lip colour – it just brings life to my face, when I wear a reddish or bright pink lip even if I don’t have much make-up elsewhere

  260. leya says:

    oh, thats easy! my fav starbucks drink is their caramel frappuccino with extra cream and caramel drizzle. Mmmmmh!

  269. Ruth says:

    My Starbuck’s favorite is their Caramel Macchiato!

  270. Camille says:

    On my days off, I usually use a BB cream. It’s faster than doing ‘the works’ in terms of foundation, plus it’s supposed to have skincare in it – so I fell like it’s better for my skin.

  271. Nicole says:

    I just started going to this cool watch-n-dine movie theater a few neighborhoods away from me (I live in Brooklyn, NY!). It’s AWESOME but has totally skewed view on the typical movie-going experience! I entered a simple girl wanting a small Coke and some popcorn… and left wishing every theater offered pork tacos with plum sauce and St Germain drinks! Yum… so good.

  272. Erin says:

    throw on and go makeup products are laura mercier tinted moisturizer, urban decay’s tease eyeshadow, mac’s syrup lipstick, tarte’s black eyeliner, and both of the tarte mascaras.

    Benefit’s Dallas box powder lives in my bag. Why? When I look tired and blah at the end of the day, I can slap a bit on with the brush that came with it – even without a mirror!) – and not look totally cray. Perks me right up.

  290. Lindsay says:

    I usually go with popcorn and a soda at the movies. I hate being the one who crinkles the candy wrappers, so I avoid those!

  334. Fran says:

    A throw-on-and-go makeup product that I really *need* this winter is something to prevent/cope with Rudolph nose… walking in the cold is leading to constant nose running/wiping/blowing… totally unglamorous, I know, but just wanting to get to work with my makeup still intact after walking in the snow… any ideas?

  343. TrippyPixie says:

    When I’m at the movies, I love buying popcorn and adding extra spices to it. It’s also fun to buy candy from the drugstore ahead of time (like Sour Patch Kids or Skittles), since everything at the movie theater is so expensive! Oh, and a HUGE pop to go with all of that.

  344. Inkygrl says:

  407. I have to admit that sometimes I go to the movies just for the popcorn, which is why I try not to go too often. Microwave popcorn just doesn’t taste the same, even the “extra butter” varieties.

    As usual, you are so sweet and generous. Thank you.

    There is a Starbucks by one of the movie theaters I go to and I have, on occasion, snuck in a drink as my movie snack. When the weather is nice I usually try to do it with a vanilla bean frappucino but when it’s cold I go for a latte; caramel brulee or any with toffee is my current favorite. Otherwise my movie snack of choice is nachos or specialty popcorn; I like to mix caramel with cheese popcorn!
