7 Ways to Win a $50 eGift Card From Sephora! (Ends Monday)

A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway
A Makeup and Beauty Blog Giveaway!

Good morning, glory! How did you sleep? Help yourself to a cup of coffee in the kitchen.


So, Godzilla last night… El Hub and I went.

Now, let me just start by saying that I sort of missed the whole Godzilla thing growing up. El Hub, on the other hand, appears to have seen dozens of Godzilla movies over the past zillion years, maybe because he grew up in Hawaii or something, and they must have been really popular over there. I don’t know.

At any rate, I went into the theater only expecting this: GIANT MONSTER DESTROYS CITIES! (With the all-caps like that because I expected a lot of it.)

And, uh, that’s pretty much what I got. πŸ™‚ But you know me, I love sci-fi, and it was sci-fi-ish, so I liked it well enough.

Still, I can’t believe there are dozens of Godzilla movies out there. I wonder what the other ones are about…


In other news, have you ever noticed how long cats drink when they drink water? It’s a freakishly long time, right? Tabs will sit at his water bowl lapping water for like three minutes!

Sorry, random thought…

Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway. Hope you have a fun weekend lined up.

  66. Sandy says:

    I’ve been wearing Naked Lunch or Grain on the lid and looking forward to trying Lorelei when it comes in the mail. I also bought Soft Brown on your recommendation to try!

  79. Jennifer says:

    I want to see Godzilla because Count Vronsky is in it-major crush!

  80. Marisa says:

    I think I might be a hummingbird πŸ™‚ Speaking of birds, a red-winged black bird tried to land on my head as I was running just now. Suddenly feeling the claws on my head definitely affirmed that one meme for me… “BIRDS – scary as sh*t.” So most likely I wouldn’t be a bird at all, but a hummingbird if I had to be. Though I wouldn’t be opposed to one of those funny little fat owls, either πŸ˜€

  81. Alix says:

    My nephew has photographic memory!

  88. Andrea says:

    I’m watching Shark Tank- it’s making me want to go shopping!

  89. Andrea Darst says:

    We leave for Cancun Monday morning!!!!

  90. Berry says:

    Current favorite makeup look is a really light and natural face. It’s not what I usually go for. I’m usually all about bright colors or dark smokey eyes. Maybe it’s the change in the weather, but I just suddenly started going very light on the makeup.

  95. Michaela says:

    My favorite current look is a MAC duo from the “Love” collection inspired by a Chinese artist, I forget her name, but I love this eyeshadow duo because it is supposedly highly mineralized and has glitter specks for a little pizzazz and I put the deep cerulean in the corner crease. It’s a nice summer look, and pair it with MAC “faux” lipstick which is a very faint mauve with a hint of lavender. It’s a nice neutral lipstick that doesn’t overshadow the eyeshadow (no pun intended).

  96. Jessica says:

    My fav thing to do on a Sun aft is hang with my 2 fur babies, particularly in the Spring/Summer when we can enjoy the nice weather outdoors!

  97. INCI says:

    My favorite make up look is barely there, natural look.

  98. Savanna Salter says:

    My cat drinks water for a really long time too! And she’s ridiculously loud about it haha. My current favourite makeup look is bronze eyes with a nude or red lip – perfection.

  99. Andrea Amy says:

    my favourite makeup look is natural…barely there…for myself, i don’t wear makeup every day and when i do its normally just a bit of foundation or bb creme and mascara, maybe some lip gloss. That’s enough for every day.

    I liked college and would like to go back to finish my BS in Psychology and to get a masters in Public Administration. But I hated regular school(K-12). There was too much social mess with all the bullies. As a result my grades were up and down.

  219. Elaine says:

    You have to see the original Godzilla with Ray Milland. It is exceptional. It has a good storyline and because it is shot in black and white I found myself really empathizing with the characters as if it was a documentary. The other Godzilla movies were much cheesier, but still good in a B movie kind of way. Love your blog. It is a bright spot in my life. I read you daily.

  256. Celia says:

    So stoked this 2 wk allergic reaction to any one of a million lip products I own is nearly at an end- to wit, my random comment is a contribution by way of advice for fellow mystery allergy victims: make sure your peppermint lip balms are separated from your natural “help-my-lips-are-falling-off” balms (this one hurt), and never underestimate the staying power of vaseline (especially the delicious smelling rose scented teeny version) for overnight lip protection.

  276. Julie Ohara says:

    The makeup look I’m loving now is a purple smoky eye. It’s still not summery enough to break out the gold/bronzy eye yet!

  277. Alethia says:

    Happy Monday!! Lol. To me school is pointless. Not K-12 but college. Having a degree doesn’t really prove that you’re capable of doing a certain job. College just shows how well you can regurgitate information onto a piece of paper. In this economy, the work world is looking for people who already have a bunch of experience. If you notice in the qualifications part, they say you need a bachelor’s OR x amount of experience.

  278. Christine says:

    I love taking walks in this lovely spring weather!

  279. Ashle Wade says:

    Hi Karen! My current quick eye look is Pixi Fairy Lights solo in either Bronze beam or Champagne glow, some winged out liner, and two heavy coats of L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes. Love that stuff! And love your blog!! πŸ˜€

  286. roz says:

    Lately every time I wear makeup I’ve been reaching for Mac Sketch and Plum Dressing e/s. Going through my purples phase I guess…

  287. Diane says:

    My favorite look right now is tangerine nails, Coralista lip gloss (Benefit), and either turquoise blue or electric green eyeliner. They all seem very spring/summer to me but in sheer shades, they’re not over-the-top.

  298. Allie says:

    I’d probably be a cockatiel if I was a bird, since I own one named Chico! People have told me that if there was any person that was just like their pet, it was me and him. Probably because we are both divas, and like hearing ourselves talk!

  299. Maggie says:

    I have a love/hate relationship with school. I love the feeling of accomplishment every time I complete a semester, but I hate how much time it consumes. I can’t wait for days when I can go home and sew or actually read a book for fun!

  314. Christy Peeples DuBois says:

    I probably shouldn’t share this but I will. It’s kinda harmless. If I were a bird I don’t no what kind I would be but all I could think when I read that was if I were a bird just how many people I could fly over and poop— and the answer would be none of course!!!!
