A Makeup and Beauty Blog Sephora giveaway!

Mornin’, babe. How’s it going this morning? Happy Caturday. πŸ™‚


Purr usual for me when we meet like this, I’m a sleepy sheepy. I may have mentioned this before, but, as much as I’d like to be, I am not a morning person. My wheels don’t start turning until 10 a.m. or so, depending on how much caffeine I’ve had… Before 10, I just fake it till I make it.

Do anything fun last night? I finally finished watching Breaking Bad (well, through the fifth season) on Netflix. I think there’s still one season left, but it’s not on Netflix yet. I’m fine waiting, though, because, truth be told, I’m a little burnt out on the show. I need a break from Breaking Bad. It only took 50-something episodes in two months, LOL.

Your nephew is…actually, I have no idea where he is right now. He was very naughty last night. He kept grumbling and scratching at the carpet on the stairs, which he’s already pretty much torn to shreds. He gets very fussy and misbehaves when anything interferes with his routines.

He has very strict routines, you see, like, he needs at least 10-15 minutes of high-intensity lurvies first thing every morning and last thing every night. If for any reason he doesn’t get one or the other, he acts out, like by clawing at the stairs in the middle of the night. It’s his way of throwing a temper tantrum.

“Where’s my lurvies, dammit?! Woman, I need my lurvies! Heads are gonna roll, b*tches! You will pay for this insolence!!”

Haha! Seriously, that’s how it is. He turns into a very fussy tabby.

Oh, well. He’ll be fine. Now let’s talk about giveaways, shall we? This weekend’s starts right meow.

  91. Debbie says:

    I’ve been crocheting for years, although nothing extremely fancy, and I still try to learn to knit on & off. My mother used to do both, but mostly knits now (doll clothes mostly, because she collects them) so I need her to teach me a few basics & tricks.

  160. DESIREE H says:

    My husband wears hats all of the time. That is fine, since he wears my favorite team lol.

    I do not knit or crochet. My grandmother was always really good at that.. but I have never tried.

  163. JoJo says:

    Most hats don’t suit me so it always takes a long time for me to find a good hat. This winter I was lucky to find a hat that was both cute and looked good on me. Overall hats are not my favorite accessory. I have a slight obsession with scarves.

  164. Carmen says:

    The only hat that I can pull off is a cowboy hat. Anything else makes me look like a chipmunk! I don’t often make my way to any rodeos or desert saloons, so I mostly stay away from hats in general.

    What was your last, best beauty purchase? The Josie Maran Escape to Morocco Hair and Body Beautifiers set. It had travel sized versions of some great stuff, including the cleanser (which I use every day), hand creme, body butter, hair serum, the 100% argan oil, and face lotion. Super awesome deal if you ask me, full of products which work great, smell great, and directly support women in African nations. My last great buy from the drugstore was the Maybelline master duo liquid eyeliner. It’s surprisingly great- doesn’t budge or flake and has the ability to go on skinny or thick.

When I receive them all, it’ll be like Christmas again πŸ™‚

    Do you wear a watch? – sometimes but not regularly
    How do you feel about hats? – I like hats but they dont like me…I have really curly hair so unless I straighten it I look like a frizzball if I wear a hat and have to take it off for any reason. I make 2 exceptions…sporting events and fishing. πŸ™‚
    Do you knit or crochet? – my grandma taught me how to do some basic crochet but she is far better at it than I could ever hope to be. She made a few of my baby outfits and an adorable jacket for me when I was little!

    My last BEST beauty purchase was just a few weeks ago…I bought Maybelline’s Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting concealer and it is AWESOME! It’s absolutely perfect for my fair skin – and with the drugstore price, I just feel like this product can’t be beat (for me, anyway). SCORE! “)

I got it from boots in the UK over the christmas holidays and it’s just excellent! i have open pores and acne scars but it really did help “resurface” my skin. wish i’d stocked up cos i like in kuala lumpur and we dont have it. i’m getting married in june and i’m worried i’ll run out by then lol! if anyone can get their hands on it, you should try it. thanks karen for being the friendliest of all neighbourhood beauty addicts and opening this contest internationally! muah muah muah!

    Hello to all and Tabs~ Oh there is a youtuber (amodelrecommends) who has a really lovely british shorthair cat named Mr Bear and he is really chubby as well πŸ™‚

    Recent beauty purchase- Tony Moly CC cream, the sales associate fitted me to the lighter of two shades and the interesting thing about the cc cream is that it starts off as white and then adjusts to your skin tone. I tan easily and also de-tan (is there such a word) easily so it really helps to not buy multiple shades of the same product. I live in asia (hence tony moly is accessible to me) and have acne prone skin, korean brands really do suit me ^^ say hi to Tabs!

    Favorite ride/attraction at Disneyland?

    I love your blog and have been coveting soo much make up since I started reading your blog! Being from Canada, my Holt Renfrew doesn’t carry Tom Ford make up so my first activity when we arrived in Tampa over our holidays was to go to Neiman Marcus! O.M.G is all I could say! My intention was to only test them out and purchase 1 or 2 Tom Ford Private Blend lipsticks but they had the beautiful box for 12 that was empty and said I could select any 12!!! I had seen pics of the pre-made box of 12 online and had drooled over it but I lost all my will power when they said that!

    I was there for 3 hours (with my BF patiently waiting and going to buy us and all of the sales associates Starbucks) testing and selecting the colours I wanted! The SAs were soo helpful and patient with me! Apparently, I’m the first to purchase a set of 12 from Neiman’s. LOL

    I selected:
    Sable Smoke, Spanish Pink, Pink Dusk, Indian Rose, Casabanca, Flamingo, Violet Fatale, True Coral, Wild Ginger, Cherry Lush, Crimson Noir, Bruised Plum!

    These are now my favourite lipsticks! Didn’t get any of the Tom Ford lip shines but they were pretty darn nice too!

    I was also fortunate to receive twelve 4ml samples of Tom Ford Fragrances that I wanted to test!

  328. Tone says:

    Haha, I love these comment suggestions of yours!

When it comes to Disneyland I’ve never been there, but I assume I would be all over the dressed up character trying to hug them (I hugged Moomin once, omg he was soft!!), and I wear a watch when I remember it – which means about once a month. My beautiful MBMJ deserves better, though.

    Oh, and hats? Love them on others, feel a bit goofy with them myself, and I am a terrible knitter, but actually managed to make my boyfriend mittens for our first christmas together – we were 16. Guess who impressed his mother!

    Beauty purchase…. Oh well, I am actually trying to reduce make up shopping this year, but the Laura Mercier ArtistΒ΄s Palette from December is a hit – much thanks to your blog post.

    Have a lovely day, sweet Karen!
    Love from Norway

    Hi all..
    The most exciting thing I have done this week was go see Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit with friends and then we went to Sephora which leads me to…

    My best most recent purchase was the Sephora Moonshadow Baked eye shadow Palette into the Tropics. Its a really lovely palette with shades of pinks, purples gold and olive. I recommend it.

    Sorry about the long post.

    I love to knit when I have the time.

  337. Keeks says:

    I love your blog! My most recent excellent beauty product was the Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe SPF 16 lip color in Pinky Beige. I have light/medium Indian skin and it is the perfect warm-toned pink. It’s also sooo moisturizing, I find myself reaching for it as often as I do my lip balm!

    I don’t wear a watch πŸ™

  339. Julie B. says:

    Just ordered silk cream foundation by Laura Mercier.

  341. Kylie says:

    I haven’t been to Disneyland proper, only California Adventure. My favorite ride there from the one time I went in 2007 was definitely California Screamin. What an awesome, Disney-fied coaster!!
    However, I travel to Disney WORLD very often (this September will be my 11th trip) and my favorite ride there is probably Splash Mountain or Test Track.

  342. millie says:

    i always wear a watch when i go to work. i usually just check the time on my cellphone but since we aren’t allowed to use our phone at work, i need a watch. i recently got a nice rose gold michael kors watch from my hubby as a christmas gift!

  343. Rina says:

    I used to wear a watch, but now I just check my phone. Used to use a camera too…

  344. camille says:

    karen! loving the reviews. keep ’em coming! went to get my hair cut at the aveda institute in town. i was SKUUURRED! but the student i got was cool and the instructor was around to help her. their products are nice, but some smell too earthy. πŸ™ and i didn’t see the sign hidden by pens that i would only get store credit back, instead of a refund. *sigh* oh well. more services, or i’ll look into their make up πŸ™‚

    happy weekend!

  345. Lyndsay says:

    My watches are pretty utilitarian. White and black only!

  363. sweeks1980 says:

    My most recent beauty purchase was Murad cleansing oil, a primer, and some BB cream from Sephora. I went in looking for a foundation/BB cream, but the sales associate who helped me was very persuasive (and brought up some good points regarding my skincare routine).

  364. Monet says:

    I have been knitting for 21 years. I learned when I was four years old, so I don’t remember a time when I didn’t have a project! My most recent one is a pair of socks for my husband πŸ™‚

  383. Deanna says:

  384. Mallory B says:

    This is going to sound SO lame, but I’ve been feeling under the weather lately so the most exciting thing I’ve done this week? I had an AWESOME nap. My puppy knew I wasn’t feeling well so he curled up next to me and we slept for a few hours. Nothing like the unconditional love of a pet πŸ™‚

    I dont go out without a watch.

  411. Germane says:

    My last, best beauty purchase was Tarte’s Unzipped palette. I’m NC45ish and always am skeptical about buying hyped up palettes. Always end up feeling like the bulk of the colors are too light/ashy or barely show up on my skin tone when I get a change to swatch in store. But I love this one.

  412. Giulia says:

    Hi Karen! Last week I’ve been studying for my exams, I’m soo tired.. MM my last makeup purchase was the eyeshadow Naked Lunch, so simple yet so nice for an everyday look. Have a good week!

  415. Sarah says:

    I love hats, they’re a great accessory.

  417. Trude says:

    Last best beauty purchase was going back to Revlon’s Whipped Cream Foundation. I tried Laura Mercier’s Silk Creme Foundation and my skin absolutely hated it. I gave it a good two weeks before giving up entirely, but it slid off and made me break out. And here I thought I needed a more moisturizing foundation. Guess not!

  427. Pamela Haddad says:

    Tabs is SO cute! And I can’t believe you get him to actually walk in a harness. My cat would just drag the ground trying to pull off the harness. I will have to try it on my new boys and see if they’ll go for it. Thanks for the entertaining videos of Tabs and the giveaway!

    My most recent beauty purchase was the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation. I actually really enjoy that it is a lightweight foundation and that it still covers everything that I need it to.

  442. Tiana says:

    I recently made a list of beauty products that I plan on buying in the year of 2014! The 50.00 gift card would help me so much in accomplishing my goal!
