It’s that time again! Rise and shine, pal o’ mine. Happy caturday! πŸ™‚


Goodness, it’s raining cats and frogs here this morning, and it looks like it rained all night. I have absolutely no problems with that, mind you, because the rain makes everything greener.

What did you do last night? Did you see any movies, go out to dinner, play any games? El Hub and I were going to go out to dinner or something but opted for pasta at home and a rental instead.

Uh…I watched Catching Fire. Again. For the third time.

I know! But I just love that movie (and the first Hunger Games) so much.

As for Divergent, well, it didn’t really do anything for me. To each her own, though, ya know what I mean? That one just wasn’t my cup o’ tea.

I hope you do something fun this weekend. If the weather cooperates, get out there and enjoy it.

Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway, and don’t forget about The Walking Dead Twitter party Sunday night. I’d love to see you there.

    Woke up to it {gasp} snowing outside! Grabbed my favorite mug (a hand painted gold mug that I DIY’d myself), made a cup of tea, and curled back up in bed! I guess it’s a good day to catch up on new beauty product reviews πŸ™‚

  42. Lisa Brown says:

    i have only been overseas once in my life

  43. Monica L. says:

    The best BB cream I’ve tried is the Misha Perfect Cover. It comes in 5 shades so I can have one for winter, 23 (I’d call it light-medium), and one for summer 27 (medium to tan).

    I’m watching Bridezillas Bootcamp and it’s shameful but SO addicting!!

    I’m always looking for new storage ideas for my makeup. I have such a small space it’s hard to keep everything organizes

  71. Samantha M says:

    Not happy with my makeup storage! I definitely need to invest in a drawer system because keeping everything in separate cosmetic bags is not working haha. Thanks for the chance to win xx

  72. I’ve been overseas three times–once to live in Switzerland for 6 months and the other two times were for my honeymoon and with my mom last year! Oh how I wish I was there right now.

  80. Arianna D. says:

    Central Park! Anytime I’m in New York City, it’s a must visit for me!

  81. JoJo says:

    I’m not a big fan of BB cream. Most of the ones I’ve tried broke me out. The one that I liked the most was the Rimmel BB Cream. I tend to use tinted moisturizer more than BB cream but I’m interested in trying Benefit’s Big Easy .

  82. Grace says:

    I’ve been overseas once, I went to Germany and Russia

    My favourite coffee shop is Tim Horton’s. Its just the best. I wish I could have it everyday!

  85. susan says:

    I would love to go to the beach today!

  86. Liz says:

    How many times have I been overseas? GURL. After 21 years in the Navy, I lost count. If you only count trips lasting 2 weeks or more and done’ count Hawaii as overseas, I think it’s around 30 trips – including living in Panama for 3 years and the Philippines for 2 years. Also, some of the overseas visits (i.e. deployments) included a lot of different countries. If you want to see the world, the Navy really is the way to go.

  87. Bunny says:

    So not happy with my makeup storage, but hopefully I can start working on it soon!

  88. Nicole says:

    I’m on the lookout for a better nail polish storage system.

    I must confess… I’ve been watching Catching Fire, too! <3 Finnick Odair!!!

    Describe your favorite cup or mug. A giant 20 oz mike from Monster’s Inc mug with stripes on the inside and the outside is just green with his big one eyeball and a smile. It’s a mug but it is perfect for iced drinks because of the size and was always snagged by my housemates whenever it was clean.

    I like Rembrandt Toothpaste

  174. Amber says:

    I want to go to Hawaii for a surfing safari. Never been there, but I’ve been dreaming about surfing North Shore for years now.

  175. Aury says:

    I’m currently in love with my makeup storage. I bought some mini plastic drawers, and there’s enough drawers for me to separate out my face products, eye products, lip products, even my brushes. I used to keep my makeup in a bag, and it was cramped and I couldn’t find anything. Now it’s all organized so I can find everything, and in the drawers, they’re all laid out, so I don’t forget about anything either. (:

  176. tina says:

    i would love to win this!

  177. Judy says:

    Gah I keep adding things to my sephora wishlist!! it’s so long…

  178. Natalie Brown says:

    Hi Beautiful! I’ve only been overseas once but it was a goodun’. In the early 90’s I won a radio contest for a trip to Ireland to see U2 perform in Dublin. Wow! I was there for four days so I was able to site see also. Sooooo much fun!

  179. Laurinha says:

    Hi Karen!
    Sunny here today, all day long……

    Hey, this is such a great giveaway! I am so praying I win this

  183. nat ogu says:

    wow i would love to use this for the sales

  184. Tania G says:

    It’s been raining all weekend here and will continue through monday. At least it’s not 20 degrees anymore, warming up a bit now around 45 – 50 degrees. Have a great weekend!

  185. Jennifer says:

    Does Dunkin’ Donuts count as a coffee shop?? Luckily I live in New England so there’s never one very far away.

  186. Annaham says:

    Any park where my little dog is happy is my favorite!

  187. Susan T. says:

    My favorite mug is a giant latte bowl that is pink and has cute cartoon penguins on it. You can’t go wrong with penguins! πŸ™‚

  188. Jennifer says:

    I definitely need a better way to organize my makeup! It’s currently in one of those moving drawer things and everything is just haphazardly put in.

  189. Maren says:

    Hi, Karen & Tabs! Yellowstone & Sequoia National Parks are my faves, though I’m sure there are a lot more out there I’d love, too.
    Haven’t found my HG BB cream, tinted moisturizer, or foundation yet.

  190. Kathryn says:

    I loved catching fire.

  191. Mardi says:

    I’ve been overseas ten times:
    1986 England
    1989 Fiji
    1997 United Kingdom
    2009 New Zealand
    2010 New York
    2011 New York
    2012 New York
    2013 Hong Kong
    2013 New York
    2014 Hong Kong
    And later in 2014 I’m going to… New York! We love New York and go there every year now, even though it is over 24 hours of travel time from where we live in Australia πŸ™

  192. Stephanie G says:

    Today is almost over, but tomorrow I’m hoping to go to K-Mart and Big Lots. (To buy makeup, of course!)

  193. Jessie says:

    Aquafresh has the best toothpaste in my opinion!

  194. Terri says:

    I’m not thrilled with my current makeup organization system. I finally got a quasi-dressing table for my makeup, but I need to figure out the best/most functional way of organizing everything. However, this project will likely have to wait until the summer.

  195. mrsshukra says:

    I need more make-up first and then I will have an organization system for them!

  196. Bearsmama says:

    My fave coffee mug has a snowman on it and I use it year-round. There’s somethung about the shape of it that just feels right in my hands. We have lots of other mugs, but I search for this one every morning!:)

  197. Monica says:

    I’ve been overseas twice

  198. Ami says:

    I am NOT happy with my make up storage system. I used to just put it all on my dresser and I had some tiny little drawers. That got out of hand so I got two sets of three drawers (so six total) from Michael’s. They’re working a lot better, but I’d still like to go all out with a vanity and places to store my brushes upright. The problem is I don’t have the room for a vanity, unless I get rid of my desk. I just live in an apartment!

  199. Michelle Clark says:

    So wanted to head to the Vacaville Outlets to check what was new at the OCC but the NorCal rain kept me local…boo!

  200. Niki T. says:

    The best BB cream I’ve tried is Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream.

  201. I like the Barnes & Noble cafe!

  208. Jody says:

    I can’t wait for the Sephora VIB Rouge sale!

  209. Jessica says:

    My all time favourite cafe is Boundary cafe in Melbourne Australia. It is amazing, so quaint and they stock a great range of herbal organic tea.

    I have been overseas so many times I really can’t count..I moved to the US a year ago prior to which I was in Singapore for 5 years! I miss the food there πŸ™

  212. Maria J. says:

    I think the best Toothpaste for me personally is Colgate Optic White.

  213. Teresa koedyker says:

    I want to go to Ikea to buy some makeup storage containers.

  214. Lorraine says:

    never been overseas, unless Hawaii counts

  215. Anna Christensen says:

    I am on the quest for a great BB cream so I don’t currently have a favorite….

  216. Brenna says:

    My curreny makeup storage system is ridiculous! I have a big box from amazing that holds a bunch of smaller shipping boxes. A Wantable box for my shadows, a Wantable box for my primers, a Birchbox for my loose tools, a makeup bag full of lippies, a makeup bag for mascaras, a MAC box for foundation, a small Amazon box for deluxe samples and foils, a makeup bag of pencils, then all my palettes in the bottom and my makeup brush roll on top (probably some more bags and boxes, but I can’t remember them all!) I reallllly need to invest in some Rubbermaid drawers!

  217. Heather says:

    What’s the best BB cream? Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen Light πŸ™‚

  218. Kimberley Dinh says:

    Hey Karen thanks for hosting this giveaway! My favourite bb cream has got to be missha’s perfect cover bb cream! It’s got decent coverage, it’s easy to blend and it comes in 5 shades rather than the typical 2! πŸ™‚

  219. Nadya says:

    I didn’t find my favourite BB cream yet. Want to try real – Korean ones.

  220. claudia yuan says:

    loving the nars sheer matte foundation as my daily base makeup now!!

  221. Justine says:

    My favorite BB cream isn’t technically a BB cream in the name, but by it’s definition I think it counts! It’s the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, which has SPF 30 and skin brightening properties. It’s got a good shade range, and my favorite part is the fact that it’s a solid medium coverage (but still light-weight). I’m not a fan of BB’s/CC’s/tinted moisturizers that have little to no coverage. This stuff is amazing! Plus for the price ($42) it comes with 1.9 floz, which when you think about it, is a good deal!

  222. Charlotte says:

    So instead of telling you about my favorite toothpaste, I thought I would tell you about my favorite mouthwash! lol. I’ve been using it a lot recently, it’s the Rembrandt Deeply White plus Peroxide; it comes in a short, stubby bottle. It’s amazing! It really helps to whiten your teeth!

  223. Barbara B says:

    My favorite mug is a Christmas one that has three angels on it.

  224. MelodyJ says:

    I’m going to see Divergent this week. I’ll report back on how I feel about it.

  225. Jeena says:

    I have a pink strawberry mug that I adore.

  226. Isabel V says:

    My favorite mug is a teal beast I bought at Target for a few bucks. It’s just the right size for a huge cup of tea or a a mug cake when I’m feeling like a chunk and need something sweet. I totally want to buy this one, though (tea-hee): http://www.topatoco.com/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=TO&Product_Code=BEAT-HUNKSMUG&Category_Code=BEAT

  227. Melanie says:

    I have a vanity setup in my bedroom that I absolutely adore.

  230. Donna W. says:

    Like you, I love the Hunger Games and have watched Catching Fire twice but getting ready to watch it again with my El Hub!. Haven’t seen Divergent and wondering if I should!

  231. FreshEyre says:

    Never enough makeup storage ! Like any insane beauty nerd who answers the question “How much makeup do you need ?” with the answer “Well, how much is there…?” I have 2 rolling carts, a la giant Sears tool boxes, probably 20 makeup cases for toting small amounts, and a silver hard-sided travel trunk filled to the brim with all things MAC, Dior, UD, Marc Jacobs, YSL, Stila, Benefit, and on and on…

    Too much is never enough πŸ˜‰

  232. Helena says:

    Depends on what you mean by “overseas.” I’ve been to Mexico many times, but that’s just a border crossing away! I have been to Venezuela twice, but technically there’s only a canal between here and there. I’ve just never left the Americas, to my dismay.

  233. Rano says:

    my favourite foundation and concealer at the moment is Bobbi Brown foundation Stick it’s solo amazing I bought it after I read your review also I bought the shade honey <3

  234. Rano says:

    My fav foundation at the moment is Bobbi Brown foundation stick I bought it after you post a review about it also I took the shade honey <3

  240. Rene Groyer says:

    Love your giveaways and blog.I have a favourite mug given to me by a school for disabled children where we played concerts for.

  241. Rachel Rogers says:

    just tried on my new Dior lipstick – lovely

  242. Sabreen says:

    I don’t think I’ll ever be happy about my makeup storage! I resorted to solely storing it in a makeup train-case because 90% of the time I’m doing others’ makeup and my own somewhere other than my house and it was becoming too much of a hassle to pack that thing and empty it out. My essentials just stay on my vanity and in a makeup bag.

  243. Sylvia says:

    Today I am going to Sephora to take advantage of the 15% off to get a few wish list items,and then to visit my friends and their new baby.

  244. Cameron says:

    I studied abroad in Germany during college, and this Saturday I’m going to the Philippines for a week with my brother… to meet my future sister-in-law. Gulp!

  245. I’ve been overseas quite a few times. And next time will be Wednesday, because I’m going to Japan, woop woop! πŸ˜€

  247. Kylie says:

    I just overhauled my make-up storage system from two bags and a clear plastic case to one small bag for my work look (I will rotate out products on a weekly basis)and a six-drawer plastic case. I LOVE it now. So much easier to find things now that everything is well organized according to type of product!

  248. bindu says:

    i recently tried this toothpaste when I was last at my parents house from a brand called dabur. I can’t put my finger on the taste (not minty) and I feel weird saying this but its definitely become my favourite toothpaste

  249. Mae says:

    There’s a lot of makeup brands I can’t get here in Egypt, I would love to one day get the rights to open up a Sephora store here and make all this beauty available to girls like me!

  250. Cynthia F. says:

    My favorite coffee shop is Montana Coffee Traders! They roast their own beans locally.

  251. Stephanie says:

    I went overseas as a kid, my mom is German and when I was 9 she took me to Germany. Back then flying wasn’t bad, these days there is NO way I could fly to Europe in coach. I am not happy with my makeup storage, it’s drawers. I would prefer some type of counter top organizer. Also, I need brushes, way more brushes. And if I win this gift card I’m going to buy Lancome foundation and some brushes.

  252. Lydia says:

    I have been overseas 3 times πŸ™‚

  253. Ambritt G says:

    I have never been overseas….but I want to desperately! I really want to go to France and Italy!

    Watching “Noah” with fam today,as a reward for finishing our walk in closet yesterday (we bought 400 hangers and It wasn’t enough lol) , got a haul of storage bins at walmart for my mac make up haul (cheapo!).

  256. MK says:

    I love the Smashbox BB cream. It’s not great coverage but it’s a really great base under powder or mineral foundation.

  257. Stephanie Hartman says:

    We just painted our entire downstairs and I love 65% of it, not sure about the den color it will have to grow on me.

    I like the Maybelline BB cream (and it’s the only one I’ve tried).

  259. Michelle says:

    I’m pretty excited because I’m going to get the chance to go to Korea for my work. Which is pretty cool, not only because I’ve never been there before, but also because hello, oppurtunity to check out all the awesome beauty products!

    random fact.. I like to drink coffee in a tea cup! I don’t know why but the size and shape of a tea cup seems to make the drinking experience much more pleasant lol.. thanks for the contest Karen!

  262. Julie B. says:

    Two of the questions are related for me: my favorite mug is a Hello Kitty mug I keep in the bathroom. It holds my makeup brushes and such, and I am not happy with my storage system because the rest of my stuff is just stuck in a drawer haphazard.

  263. Deanna says:

    The best BB Cream that I’ve tried is the Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm. I’ve tried several BB creams, but none of them have compared to the Too Faced one so far. The only drawback is that the shade range isn’t too great.

  264. Nikky says:

    Today I would love to go to the library. I been teaching myself to knit and I think I finally upgraded to leaning how with two colors I’m wanting to get a book so it can show me how. I have two babies soon to be born into the family and I would love to be able to make them both a blanket.

  265. Carmen says:

    I haven’t been overseas to Europe in many years, but I was formerly an airline employee back in the day when it was FUN and there were a lot of empty seats. I would go to Asia on shopping trips for 4 days total, for 2 days to Honolulu, and 4 days total to Buenos Aires, which is a fantastic city to party and shop and eat.
    Ahh, those were the days!

    These days, the packed small economy class seats on long trips are not appealing to me at all.

  266. Sherry says:

    The best toothpaste in my opinion is Crest. I have been using Crest since I was a little kid, and I’m 47 now. My favorite one is the “Whitening Plus Scope.” My favorite mug is one with an animated cat on it. It says “Have A Purrfect Day.” The handle on it, is in the shape of a cat’s tail. I love it!! It was given to me by a coworker way back in 1990. Ok, and one more detail for good measure. My favorite coffee shop is Starbucks. It’s the best!!

  267. Chloe N says:

    I have never been overseas! That’s one of my goals for the future

    I love rainy Sundays

  270. mary-GaΓ«lle says:

    I am currently happy with my makeup storage but since i’m moving out in July, I’m gonna have to do it all over again :S

  271. nlm8 says:

    Arm & Hammer Advance toothpaste is fabulous! Forever Bright tooth gel has aloe vera which I like. Love toothpaste!

  272. Kelsey says:

    I’m with ya Karen – I saw Divergent and it was just meh to me. Nothing wrong with it, but it just didn’t capture me like Hunger Games did.

  273. Ritsa says:

    Unfortunately I have never been overseas…Oh wait, I have been in Cyprus when I was 10 years old. We went on vacation witht my parents and my little brother. But I don’t know if this counts, as I am fron Greece.

    I wore short today in 30 degree weather. Mind over matter

  275. Clare says:

    I’ve been overseas quite a bit! My mother is English, so I lived in England for a while and went to school there. My father was in the military so we were stationed in Germany as well. My husband also was in the military so we lived in Germany for over 6 years (2 different times). Certainly have a great appreciation for the United States and foreign cultures! Nothing like home tho!!

  283. Amoure says:

    My fav. BB cream is currently Kiss New York’s Aqua BB Beauty Balm.

    Hi Karen!
    I’ve been overseas twice to visit family in Spain. It’s very beautiful out there. Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

  285. Rachel says:

    The best toothpaste is anything by Arm & Hammer, gives me ridiculously fresh breath & white teeth!

  286. Crystal says:

    I am not happy with my current makeup storage. I have my eyes est on a special kit from Sephora! The gift card will definitely come in handy.

  287. Ayen says:

    My bday is on the 31st of may,this egift card would be the perfect advance bday present! Haha

    My fav mug is a hello kitty one that my bf gave me on valentines day!

  290. Tweakweasel says:

    Oh, what’s that? A 15% off sale at Sephora? …interesting…

    And as far as storage goes, uh…it could be…better. :-S I suppose the fact that I separate things into “moods” or colors doesn’t help. Well…it would…if I just had more boxes.

  291. Camille DL says:

    Love this giveaway! There are a few things I’ve been looking at in Sephora…

  292. Robin says:

    Sigh… definitely not happy with my makeup storage “system.” But, at the moment, it works. So I’m calling it good enough…. for now! πŸ™‚

  293. Lisa says:

    i set up the top drawer of my closet as my vanity and bought a bunch of the clear acrylic muji drawers as my makeup storage. pricey, but WELL WORTH IT. everything is so organized and i can see through the fronts of the drawers, so quick access! it makes me so happy to feel so organized. πŸ™‚

  294. Kim says:

    I have been overseas!!! I love Sephora!!!!

  295. AnnaRose says:

    I am a girl on the go, so I am all about tinted lip balms, Quest protein bars, and keeping focused on my goals πŸ™‚

  296. Vicki says:

    I’ve tried a bunch of BB creams now but I find they don’t have a broad enough colour selection and the lightest shades are still too dark for me!

  297. Carissa says:

    I am not happy with my current makeup storage! I have way too much makeup and way too little space!

  298. Nicole says:

    So far my favourite BB cream is Smashbox! I’ve tried others but I just keep coming back to it!

  299. Claire says:

    I think Asian BB creams (especially Korean) tend to be the best. I really like the Sulwhasoo one.

  300. Melinda L. says:

    Best BB cream is Skin79 Hot Pint Super+

  301. Nikki says:

    I have been overseas four times! Scotland, Finland, Estonia, and Japan. I want to go back to Scotland ASAP!

  302. Jordi says:

    I’ve been overseas five times: four trips to Israel and one to the UK. With my very limited French skills, I feel like my trips to Montreal almost qualify!

  303. jen. says:

    My current toothpaste is Tom’s Fennel toothpaste. I prefer cinnamon toothpaste, but I realized it was making my lips peel like crazy. But I hate mint, so that’s pretty limiting.

  304. Elizabeth says:

    Ugh, I wish I was happy with my makeup storage. I just reorganized it and I still don’t like it, too jumbled because the boxes I’m using are too big…

  305. Tiffany says:

    I have all my makeup essentials stored in two Muji acrylic cases, but the rest of it is sitting sadly and lonely in cardboard boxes. Makeup hoarder? Maybe. But I just moved and lost custody of my previous setup.

  306. Hannah says:

    I’m a little sad because my summer plans got canceled, but I might get to go to Disneyland because of it so that’s good.

  307. Jennifer M-K says:

    Hey Karen! Hope you had a good weekend! My makeup storage system is a work in progress. I can’t say I’m really happy with it but its not horrible. Any suggestions for storage? How do you keep everything organized? I have what my husband would argue is too much of everything and keeping it all straight so I don’t end up with dupes or tons of similar shades is a bit tricky…especially with lip products. Any advice?

  308. Vanessa F says:

    I’ve been overseas 3 times in my life and would love to go again.

  309. stacey says:

    My current makeup storage could use a little work! Currently, I have a very generous shabby chic vanity with lots of drawers, and some acrylic organizers in the largest drawer. The side drawers are smaller, but not being utilized the best way they could be. I think I would like to organize them better, and perhaps get a small set of acrylic drawers for excess products that are making me disorganized and jumbled! I have too many samples all over the place!

  310. Laura Boglioli says:

    My makeup organization set up is pretty good, but I would love to glam it up a little bit and move it into a different room.

  311. Sydney says:

    I have only been overseas once, I went to Vienna, Austria with my grandmother when I was 11 (2002) to go to my great-uncle’s induction into the Austrian Music Hall of Fame.

  312. Jamie C. says:

    I love where I keep my makeup because it’s so easy and convenient

  313. Diana says:

    I need some Sephora in my life!!!

  314. michaela says:

    I’ve been overseas twice. My first time i went was to the Philippines, where I counted 654 stray dogs over the course of two weeks! Poor pups!

  315. Jeanine says:

    My form of storing my makeup….exists? I do have a way of storing it all, but I usually wind up sleeping in so most of my makeup is sprawled across my dresser lol. It’s a mess but it works as long as I can find what I need. I like to call it “organized chaos”.

  316. Della B says:

    I need some organization for my makeup. I’d like to have a small chest or box to put it in and keep it on the counter in the bathroom.

  317. Redlipstikk says:

    Love It Cosmetics CC cream in tan!

  318. JulieG says:

    I have been overseas once and my favorite bb cream is currently Bobbi brown’s!

  319. Corey says:

    I love my current makeup storage system. I wanted to use something cute and decorative so I bought a small jewelry dresser (that fits on my desk) and now I keep my makeup in it that I used daily.

  320. Oana says:

    The best toothpaste is the Sensodyne. It’s for sensitive teeth and I love it <3

  321. Veronica Alexis says:

    Today…today is the day I will be out looking for a new job. Just last night I sadly got fired from by job due to a just two weeks ago i had totaled my car and was not abke to go back to work right away. I was lucky to only have broken bones in my back, fractured ribs, collapsed lungs, and a fractured shoulder. I’m not really sure where to start but hopefully will find my way.

  322. Fran says:

    I need to use a BB/CC/TM or foundation that gets all its sunscreen power from zinc and titanium rather than chemical sunscreens, and I like one that matches my skin tone well and blends well with concealer or foundation for where I need more coverage. Too Faced makes a nice one, but the finish is too dewy for me to wear in summer, when my skin is oily. Tarte’s BB cream seems thick in texture to me, and too matte, so I mix it with their TM, which seems a bit too sheer/dewy; I mix a different color from each and come out with something that looks good and is amazingly durable (my makeup has to be able to last through at least some rain and sweat). The next one I want to try is the CC cream that IT cosmetics makes. I swatched the light shade last week and it’s the closest match to my own skin tone that I’ve ever seen in a BB/CC cream.

    The BEST CC cream is from It Cosmetics….full coverage yet light weight of a tinted moisturizer, it’s amazing!!

    I have been overseas several times, mainly to visit family in India.

  326. Erin says:

    I am not currently happy with my makeup storage system, but I am planning on rearranging my room in include a vanity! Obsessing over vanity pinterest boards, I can’t wait to get started and make the area MINE! πŸ™‚

  327. I’m Christine, 18 from Malaysia! Enjoying reading this blog!

  328. Angie R. says:

    I just ordered some Muji acrylic boxes so I can store and organize my makeup. I’m super excited to get it all in there in an orderly fashion, so I can easily see what I have and use it! πŸ™‚

  329. mn says:

    Hi Karen, wanted to let you know how much I liked your video on the new MAC store- got some great tips. thanks for posting

  330. Crystal says:

    My current makeup storage system is those Sterilite Storageβ€Ž containers. Not organized well. Not happy about it. I’m working on a better system. πŸ™‚

  331. Tania says:

    The best toothpaste is Crest Glamorous White Luxe. It is probably the only toothpaste I’ve bought twice in a row. It was a recommendation from a dude I watch on YouTube. It’s awesome!

  332. Bridget says:

    You know, I do like BB cream, but I’ve found myself using it mostly as a backup primer, which probably defeats the purpose of the stuff.

  333. Deanna says:

    omg no I hate how I store my makeup mostly because I don’t really have a system. I was looking into the acrylic storage but couldn’t decide on which ones to get. Any thoughts?

  334. Swati says:

    Totally cliche, but I love Starbucks!

  335. Danielle says:

    My favorite mug is the one I have shaped like a TARDIS.

  336. Christina says:

    It is stormy outside today. I have indoor projects on my list to do today!

  337. Trude says:

    I’m not totally thrilled with my makeup storage, but that’s partly because of the bathroom I’m in right now. However, I just got a big ol’ Sonia Kashuk train case type bag (on sale!) from her green/black/white collection, and I can finally see all my daily use products again! πŸ™‚

  338. Doreena says:

    March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb Baaaa NOT! Lol it’s snowing like crazy here on Long Island!

  339. Kelsey C. says:

    I tend to store my makeup and all my nail polish in the bottom two drawers of my dresser. =)

  340. Sarah says:

    I wanted to join in on the Twitter party last night but didn’t get to watch the finale of TWD until late and was scared of spoilers! But I’m totally with you on all Walking Dead excitement!

  341. Vanessa Caraballo says:

    my face is still stuck on my WAAAAAH face after yesterday’s Walking Dead. I def need to watch that episode again <3 Fingers crossed season 5 begins in 2014!

  342. Ashley Wade says:

    I’ve been to Italy twice for work (tough job, haha)… and I just got my motorcycle permit this weekend, yeah!!

  343. Tracy says:

    Do you have a favorite coffee shop or cafe? Yes it’s in Folsom called La Bou – best Thai iced tea I’ve ever had.

  344. Alyssa Lee says:

    The best kind of toothpaste hands down is Crest White, I have the pearliest whites from this amazing magic in a tube.

  345. Candice says:

    My favorite hand cream is J.R. Watkins Shea Butter Hand Cream in Lemon Cream. It’s smells like lemon cake and is the most delightful thing on the whole dang planet.

  346. Martina says:

    I love makeup and I love your blog.

  347. Jessie says:

    I have never been overseas but I would love to visit South Korea! (I’m half Korean)

  348. Lyndsey B. says:

    The best toothpaste is the Aquafresh Extreme Clean! Oh..and I have been to Jamaica. Does that count as overseas? πŸ˜‰

  349. Strawberry says:

    I love Marvis Jasmine toothpaste! Remember 10 years ago when all the toothpaste at the drugstore was mint or spearmint? I’d be shelling out +/-$15/tube for this stuff. At least now there are some orange flavored Aquafresh to be easily had at Walgreens. But the Marvis is still the best! Thanks for sponsoring the giveaway Karen!

  350. Jasmine P says:

    I am not happy with my current makeup organization system! I need to find a way to store them so that I have easy access but so it’s not just sitting out!

  351. tiffany says:

    I don’t need a favourite park when the area that I live in is advertised as being the waterfall capital of the world! I am not kidding, check out Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and you won’t be disappointed. The best part is that all of the waterfalls are accessible from public trails so they are FREE! It is worth a roadtrip just to experience the natural beauty πŸ™‚

  352. Ashley S says:

    I have never been overseas, but plan to one day! πŸ™‚

  353. Marisa says:

    Love your blog Karen!

  354. Amanda K says:

    I want to go to Anna Miller’s today and buy my dad a banana cream pie for his birthday!

  355. dominique f says:

    So as I was reading through comment ideas I saw “What’s the best toothpaste” and I just HAD to say Colgate Optic White!!!

    My roommate turned me onto it a few months ago because I was having trouble getting my teeth whiter (can’t give up coffee or red wine :P) and it works so well so fast!

  356. Joy says:

    Crest is beyond a doubt the best toothpaste! Especially the special whitening one!!

  357. Sarah says:

    I do like my current makeup organizing system, which is clear plastic pull-out drawers in a stack, which you can get at Walmart in the closet/organization section. Problem is, my makeup collection keeps expanding but unfortunately the drawers don’t! lol.

  358. Andrea Darst says:

    We signed our daughter up for beauty school this weekend…my baby girl is growing up!!

  359. Susana Dorado says:

    Hi Karen
    Its been about 2 months since I found your blog and I have really enjoyed getting my daily email to see what’s new in the world of a beauty addict and of course to see how Tabs is doing. Love seeing all the new make up products. Wish I could buy all of it.

    I just recently bought the Urban Decay Naked 3 and I’m really loving it. I have 1 & 2 but I think this new one is my favorite.

  360. Julie Simpson says:

    Since I’m on a 3 g iPhone I couldn’t get the pin entry until you told me what to do thanks! I am a weird black/ Native American color. I use a combo of smashbox deep which looks like mud on my face by itself, L’Oreal deep which is almost my color and smashbox photo finish clear and mix. Before I put on those bb and cc’s I use a little miracle blur and it works great.

  361. Laura says:

    Smashbox is my current favorite BB cream

  362. Camille says:

    I like going to Second Cup – it’s a Canadian chain, and the people are always friendly there.

  363. Sue says:

    I like Lumene’s BB cream. As for coffee, Caffe Vita has incredibly smooth coffee.

  364. Linda says:

    I’ve been overseas three times (four if you count Hawaii) — South Korea, Germany, and France. Absolutely adore traveling.

  365. My b/f and I actually just watched Blackfish which was just WOW. He made fun of me at first about the “whale movie” I rented but you know what? Neither one of us said a damn word the entire time…it’s a must watch!

  368. Anika F says:

    I’ve been overseas three times, I wish it was more!

  369. Jackie says:

    In favourite mug is one I got last Christmas from a coworker. It’s big but not too big, white, and best of all it says “all I need is tea and socks!

  370. Katrina says:

    Starting to think about Spring and Summer and the minimal makeup that comes with the seasons – loving it and the pops of color!

  371. Wayne says:

    Spring may or may not be here, but baseball has started.

  372. Kelly Consdine says:

    I love Garnier BB Cream for oily skin. Great coverage with a lightweight feel!

  373. Thomas Murphy says:

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  374. donna marie says:

    I’m still trying to recover from the walking dead finale!! Shocked how it ended.

  375. Lindsey says:

    I am so UNHAPPY with my current makeup storage situation!! I have it divided into two drawers and laid out in junk drawer organizers, but it is just not working for me.

  376. Christy Peeples DuBois says:

    Gosh, I almost missed this weeks giveaway entry and if I don’t enter I know I won’t win. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

  377. Care says:

    Still trying to find my hg bbccdd cream for my crazy oily combo skin.

    I love the smashbox bb cream πŸ˜€
