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

Verve is such a cool word, isn’t it?



Verve…

I actually woke up lacking verve today, LOL! Totally lacking verve.

Oh, well. Hopefully the coffee helps me find it.

How’s it going this morning, my friend? What are you up to? I’m sitting here on the couch finishing my first cup of joe and breakfast (a waffle with almond butter and honey drizzled on top, and a side of sliced peaches) and watching The Golden Girls with Tabs.

Well, he’s actually staring out the window at the bird feeder expectantly. There are currently no birds dining at the restaurant.

Did you do anything fun last night? We were going to go see the new X-Men movie but ended up just going to Pasta Pomodoro instead.

Have you been watching True Detectives? I’m not the world’s biggest fan of cop shows, but dang if doesn’t have some amazing acting. Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and Michelle Monaghan on screen in a TV show at the same time? That’s one heck of a cast.

Time for my second cup of coffee now! Can I get you one? Enter this weekend’s Sephora giveaway, and I’ll be right back. :)

    I wish I knew how to apply false eyelashes! And going to beauty counters or and especially to stores like Ulta I feel like I am way more knowledgeable than people working there. Have a great long weekend Karen, I am going to spend it working, most of the time :-/

    Hi karen, hope you are having a great weekend. I do not know how to put on false lashes, lol! But I never use them and don’t really have a desire to.

  7. Sara says:

    Going to the zoo this weekend!

  8. Sheila says:

    Been itching to try something new…here’s to luck ya’ll!

  9. Jess says:

    I find when I go into beauty stores (like Ulta, Sephora) and if I can’t find a product I’ve seen online, they often have never heard of it before and aren’t a lot of help. Which always surprises me because I assume they are as make-up obsessed as I am! Whereas with beauty counters in a department store, I’ve never run into that- I guess because they are focused on just one brand.

  10. Noon says:

    The last fashion show I went to was when I was in 6th grade and we put on one for charity, lol.

That is our special holiday and it is called Remembrance Day. We wear poppies and have a moment of silence as well as many prayers. God bless those who keep us safe and free!

    I wish I knew how to play harmonica and apply a liquid eye liner cat eye decently.

  37. Kylie says:

    Is this copy old?? True Detective ended months ago– but yes, I LOVED it! :-)
    I really don’t find the Sephora staff at my local store that knowledgeable, so yeah, I’d say I know more than them. They’re terrible with color matching– and that’s if you can even get them to stop talking to each other and help you out. Still my fav beauty store!

  38. Kim says:

    I wish I could get winged eyeliner right!

  39. Bridget Heiple Reich says:

    I’m going to the in-laws house for Memorial Day. Low key, but it should be fun.

    I find I know more about makeup than all my friends and acquaintances! Not to toot my own horn, but I’m naturally the one they come to when advice is needed. Toot-toot.

  41. Nicole says:

    My least favorite chore is putting away clothes.

  42. Amy says:

    I wish I knew how to do eyeliner. I’m new to makeup, but everything else is so much easier to do. Even mascara wasn’t that much of an issue after the second time! Not too big of a deal, since I look fine without it, but it still would be kind of nice.

  43. Kessondra says:

    I will be spending time in the country with my family. Laughing, talking, and eating!

  44. I wish I knew how to sing. Or draw. It must be amazing to be able to sing beautifully, or just draw something beautiful from scratch.

    I wish I knew how to bake–I am a god cook, but the precise nature of baking and pastry making is beyond me

  50. Courtney says:

    Household chores…I really hate cleaning anything bathroom related. This weekend I’ll be making my first attempt at changing a shower head, so fingers crossed there!

    And fingers crossed for this contest :D

  51. Justine says:

    We learned today that adults must be accompanied by a child in order to enter a LEGOLAND Discovery Center. The policy makes sense, but it sure results in some disappointed childless adults!

  52. Katy says:

    I love the Golden Girls!
    I’m currently recovering from helping friends move yesterday and the possibility that I have a sinus infection. Hopefully I’ll be recovered soon so I can finish organizing my nail polish stash.

  57. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    I wish I knew how to speak French!

  58. Pam O'Donnell says:

    Tips on false lashes would be great! Do they work for everyone? I’ve tried them once, but felt like they were way too long for my eyes!! help!!

  59. Krista says:

    I just picked up some prescription antacid capsules, and now I’m going to test foundation at the Clinique counter.

    i would love to have second cup of coffee, there’s a chill in the air and coffee sounds great.

    Just have to let you know that your posts in my inbox make me smile daily and a big thank you is in order :)!

    Who tells the best stories? KAREN!! Hand down the best story teller on the blogosphere.
    Have you ever been to a fashion show? What was it? Yup, twice! And I was walking the ramp both times :-D
    Do you ever find that you know more about makeup than the people working at the counter or store? Oh yea.. All the time. and even more so for skincare- their knowledge is very limited.
    What are you doing for Memorial Day? Major appliance shopping! :-)
    What’s your least favorite household chore? Every household chore is my least favorite, I sooo wish I could afford to hire a housekeeping service.

  74. aradhana says:

    i hate when i go to stores and ask them to compare two products, and they sales person reads the box/packaging. thanks but i can do that myself!!!!!!

    anyway, usually when going to makeup counters or stores, even in the event i know as much as the sales assistant, i still love getting their point of view or tips on how to use products. i find with makeup there are so many ways to achieve good results, and everybody’s got their own way of doing things. i’m always learning!

  75. Meg says:

    Least favorite household chore? Cleaning the house! :)

  76. em says:

  92. Celia says:

    No fun stuff. Just endless studying for my boards (actually, not endless, only three weeks left and I’m maybe panicking a little) AND beauty blog breaks! And putting on full makeup to sit in front of a computer because it’s fun :)

    I wish I knew how to control my beauty addiction… lol JK I love it!

  94. Sharene says:

    This weekend I finally get to sleep in!

  95. Ariel R says:

    I wouldn’t say I knew more that associates at Sephora/counters, the ones around here are pretty on top of things. I like learning how others approach makeup so I enjoy getting their input. Now Ulta on the other hand not so much :/

  96. Chelsey says:

    I hate vacuuming!

  97. Laure says:

    Karen, have you seen Orphan Black yet? It’s sooooo good! It’s in its second season and every week I’m glued to the screen when it’s on.

  98. Mandy Sark says:

    I really hate it when I can’t figure out which color to paint my toenails. Do I want to paint them a neutral, a bright, or a deep color? It’s so hard being me!

  99. Maria says:

    I hate dusting! I’ve collected a lot of vinyl toys and dusting them all in one day take so long.

  100. margarita says:

    I wish I knew how to speak more languages!

  101. TrippyPixie says:

    I actually modeled in a small-time fashion show for a local designer once. That was my first and last encounter with false eyelashes.

  104. Sarah says:

    I wish I knew how to apply eyeshadow well. It always turns out looking very muddy and makes me look like a clown! Oh well guess I need to practice more!

  105. Denay Haist says:

    I wish I knew how to french braid my own hair.

  107. MarciaF says:

    The worst chore is cleaning bathrooms. It’s never ending and seems so thankless.

  108. Puri says:

    It’s kinda 1/2 and 1/2 on if people at the makeup counters know more than I do. Usually the only thing I know more about is if the product is cruelty free or not :P

    I was reading about MAC unsung heroes, and was surprised to see the Painterly Paint Pot mentioned. Bought that for my pale skin couple hours ago. Looks great and all over lid color under Stormy Pink or (yum) Clearwater.

    Kelliegonzo – I adore KBShimmer polishes. Favorite is “Oh Splat”.

  147. Anna says:

    I find that I often know more about skincare than the people selling it, but when it comes to makeup, I may know a lot about the products, however the artists are always better at application than me. I love when I get someone willing to take the time to teach me how to use a product.

    And I loathe vacuuming. Probably because I have a yellow lab that sheds like crazy. Vacuuming takes about an hour and I feel like I have to do it again as soon as I finish. :-/

    Have a great weekend, Karen!!

  152. rotem says:

    My great grandmother used to tell the best stories
    She was born in 1910 and remembered the ottoman soldiers leaving when WWI ended .
    She had a real life romance (her father the wealthy landowner object to her relationship with my great grandfather the poor idealist worker) so he sent her to some family belgium.
    Because she was raised by her grandmother she knew a lot about all her uncles and other relatives who were extraordinary . An author writing a book about her uncle interviewed her shortly before she died . I read this book during my grandmother (her daughter) shivaa

  153. MelodyJ says:

    I wish I knew how to sew.

  154. Lois says:

    I wish to one day visit a Sephora store!

    I don’t like washing the dishes.

  156. Tonya says:

    I wish one of the designers from HGTV would come to my house for a complete overhaul :)

  157. Taylor says:

    I wish I knew how to do special fx makeup! Seems like it holds a lot of opportunities and its just such an interesting skill to have.

  158. Jessica says:

    I want to go see X-Men too, but it’s just too crowded this weekend!

    • I wish i knew how to play the guitar.
    • Who tells the best stories? Swoozie on YT! And a teacher I had in college.
    • Have you ever been to a fashion show? What was it? I haven’t and I feel like I should at least try to attend the Academy of Art one since I went there.
    • Do you ever find that you know more about makeup than the people working at the counter or store? YES! It’s scary, I shouldn’t know more about their products than them.
    • What are you doing for Memorial Day? BBQ with husband’s fam.
    • What’s your least favorite household chore? Dishes— no! Cleaning the bathroom.

  159. Siobhan says:

    I rarely go into a store like Sephora to buy something without having researched the product and products like it first so sometimes, I feel bad because the people helping at the store start telling me things I already know and I want to correct them or brush them but I usually just nod politely until they stop.

  160. LizR says:

    I wish I knew how to play piano. Yep sometimes I find myself know more about makeup than ppl working at the counter/store. No never been to fashion show ever but one of my dreams. On memorial day probably just stay home with my orange tabby since I cant take him to BBQ party. The least favorite household chores would be cleaning bathroom iick!!

  161. mrsshukra says:

    I wish I didn’t have sensitive skin!

  162. Kathleen Blackwell says:

    I really wish I knew how to perfectly fill in my eye brows. I’ve tried loads of products and techniques, but I still have trouble getting them to look even.

  163. Angela H. says:

    I have run into finding out that I know more than those into beauty stores. Sometimes it’s really hard to but products recommended to me when I know many of them don’t know what they think they do. I think I spend way too much time reading blogs, reviews, and products information. Haha.

  164. Efrain says:

    Yes, sometimes I know more than people on counters or Sephora and it’s quite frustrating because they’re trying to sell me something I know won’t work with me after reading a lot.

  165. Priscilla S. says:

    We’re having a smallish barbecue with some family and friends for Memorial Day.

    I hate cleaning anything and everything *lol* but I do it anyway.

  170. Estefania says:

    I think the knowing more thing usually happens at Sephora! I get a lot of blank looks when I ask how things compare to each other or when I get more technical (it might just be the Sephora I go to!)

  171. Kamea says:

    I wish I was able to apply my winged eyeliner evenly without having to touch it up.

  172. Sarah K. says:

    I would love to know how to stop transfer of makeup! I hate how i hugged someone and left a makeup mark on his shirt!! Would love to see your input on that! (Plus I’ve heard to put a setting powder to stop it- but i don’t want to own any setting powders that will give me a flashback! )XOXO

  173. Nik says:

    Oooo oooo! I just finished True Detective last week! No spoilers from me ok, its at the top of my list of best tv shows, it’s pretty flawless. Karen, the awesomeness always unfolds with you, u like cool s#%@ and you are rad

  174. Lindsey M says:

    Occasionally, I do find that I know more about makeup than the people behind the counter. Usually involving the ingredients, more than anything.

  175. Candice Croix says:

    I wish I knew how to knit my own socks! No joke.

  176. Maren says:

    I wish I knew how to fix cars & plumbing, but I can’t see making it a priority to learn how any time soon.

  184. Carla says:

    I wish I knew how to do Winged eyeliner properly… >_<

  185. Denise F says:

    I wish I knew how to read minds! It would make life so much easier!

  186. meghan says:

    i wish i knew how to swim!

    i actually grew up in a beach town. i am terrified of drowning, but i think part of it has to do with my vision (stay with me here, i’ll explain). i have very poor eyesight; when i swim i can’t wear my glasses or contacts, so i can’t really see anything, which terrifies me.

    another point about being from a beach town- memorial day weekend is both wonderful and terrible at the same time. it signifies the beginning of the summer season- which means my favorite kind of weather and the area is more ALIVE…. but it also means lots of traffic, dealing with tourist types, and lots more stress!

  187. Ishii says:

    I wish i knew how to convince my husband to take me for world tour .. Can’t wait to see the world :(

  188. Maureen says:

    I wish I knew how to sew.

  189. Amber says:

    Yes I know a lot more about Makeup than beauty counter workers do!

    I am a Freelance PRO MUA and I find if i tell them I am a PRO MUA their attitude changes immediately! and if I don’t I am just an ‘amateur’ and they act stuck up like they know everything haha!

    This long weekend, I’m trying to avoid leaving the house as much as possible- too hot!

  194. Alex N says:

    Are you going to play with the new Givenchy Le Rouge colors that just launched!?

  195. Katie says:

    I wish i could figure out how too apply liquid liner… i just can’t do it!

  196. Deborah says:

    That breakfast sounds delicious!

  197. Liz says:

    I’d say most of the time when I go to Sephora, I am more informed than the associates I encounter

  198. Asmita says:

    like everyone here, i also struggle with falsies! i tend to just load up on mascara instead x

  199. Christina P says:

    We are getting together as a family for memorial day lunch on Monday. We usually share stories and enjoy the outdoors.

  217. Meg R says:

    I am spending Memorial Day with my family.

  218. Kae says:

    It’s really strange when you have more product knowledge than the employees in places like Sephora. I expect that I. A drug store but not at that next tier up

  219. MIchelle H. says:

    My least favorite chore is cleaning the bathroom.

  220. Marilia T says:

  223. Diana says:

    Karen, what is the best way to use MAC face and body foundation? The texture of this foundation is very liquid and different from any other foundation I have used. Thank you.

  224. Joanna says:

    I was at a fashion show about a week ago. It’s a fashion show for Caribbean designers and they’re slow introducing international designers.

  225. chiara says:

    My least favorite chore is ironing…ugh!!!

  226. Lulubelle says:

    My least favorite household chore is probably cleaning out my refrigerator. I prefer yard work to house work, any day :-)

  227. Ellen says:

    Sadly, I definitely find that I sometimes know more (or small details) about makeup than people at counters.

  228. Jocelyn says:

    I wish I knew how to apply eyeliner on my top lid properly. I always end up with the most awkward lines lol.

  229. Karla L. says:

    I hate doing laundry.

  230. Jessica says:

    I wish i wasn’t so afraid to use liquid eyeliner!

  231. susie king says:

    My grandpa told the best stories.

  232. Jennifer X says:

    I wish I knew how to snowboard. And make cat eyeliner for deep folded lids.

  233. Ria says:

    My least favorite chore is definitely dishes! I hate getting my hands wet, lol

  234. bindu says:

    currently on the hunt for the perfect orange lip product, can’t seem to find one that isn’t too pink or on the other side of the spectrum too neon!

  235. Jocelyn says:

    I wish I knew how to do that really intense eye makeup that you see on arabic brides. I’ve saved a bunch of pics, now I just need to practice.

  236. Marina Grigório says:

    More about makeup and what’s new in the world of nail polish / nail tips and pro curly hair products! It’s amazing how often they cherish more than a cute face a dedicated person, who understands and knows to be confidant of the consumer!

  237. Margaret says:

    I wish I knew how to crochet.

  238. Marisa Kramer says:

    Sometimes yes to the knowing-more-than-the-makeup-store people (I read the blogs and like to do my research), but I just let them do their thing.

  239. Jillian says:

    I wish I could contour, I always feel like it turns out muddy looking :/

  240. Jennifer Long says:

    Finally found some great liquid eyeliners and learning to create winged tips.

  241. Tania G says:

    I wish I knew how to ice skate really well and ski. Have a great weekend!

  242. Mackenzie says:

    Such a beautiful weekend! Finally summer has arrived in canada (toronto area natch); which reminded me that I really need a sunscreen as I was totally burnt after the polar vortex deprived us of sun for way too long. Need to research that. Also, shampoo. Is high end really any better? I guess you have to make the plunge to find out…

  243. brittany says:

    i love sephora!

  244. Chloe says:

    Nothing much this weekend! The weather is gross and I haven’t been feeling well so a lot of staying in and watching netflix :)

  245. Katherine says:

    What are you doing for Memorial Day?

    Actually, I’m going to see a movie about the Large Hadron Collider with my dad. It’s called Particle Fever! I’m as much of a science junkie as I am a makeup junkie…

  246. Anna says:

    I wish I knew how to write with my left hand!

  247. Julia says:

  251. Sylvia says:

    I would like to know how to play guitar.

  252. Fatima says:

    Ironically enough, I’ve actually been LIKING the look of over-applied blush lately! Maybe because I’m working up a tan, it looks nice on my skin? I have no idea!

  253. Jody says:

    Would love to win!

    I wish I knew how to speak at least 1-2 languages fluently other than english :)

  257. Tracy says:

    Do you ever find that you know more about makeup than the people working at the counter or store?
    Let’s just say I was offered a job at a store that shall remain nameless because the girls thought I knew more than they did about their products.

  258. Wayne says:

    Have a great long weekend!

  259. Ashleigh says:

    Do you ever find that you know more about makeup than the people working at the counter or store?
    This happened to me yesterday. I asked the SA what finish a particular lipstick had (since there weren’t any testers), and she said “regular lipstick” and then pointed to the balms and said “these ones are more sheer.” :/ heh…

  260. serina says:

    heyy! i just ordered a few things from this cosmetic company called skinn…i was wondering if youve heard of it?!

  261. Stephanie says:

    I hate dusting, I should do it more since the cat hair seems to create scary dust bunnies.

    I wish I was better at applying eyeshadow and winged eyeliner.

  262. Sienna says:

    i wish i knew how to quilt! and my least fave household chore is washing dishes. thanks for these giveaways!

  263. Mary V says:

    We had a very good weekend, went to some free concerts for the veterans, meets some real nice people, eats some great food

  264. Jennifer M-K says:

    What are you doing for Memorial Day? – I’ll probably lounge by the pool since its my only day off this week :)

  265. Isabel V says:

    I’m a big fan of people’s stories in general, but when I saw your question, the first person I thought of was Mike Birbiglia. He’s a stand-up comedian who makes me laugh extra hard. Apparently he got a review once where someone called him “pawkward – pudgy and awkward,” which is awesome in and of itself. His stories tend to be about uncomfortable situations and other pretty mild shenanigans.

  266. Charlene says:

    I’m heading to the A’s game for Memorial Day! How about you?

  267. anissa says:

    it’s 3 AM and i’m working – i would much rather be sleeping!

  268. Carla S says:

    My least favorite household chore is cleaning the bathroom floor behind the toilet.

  270. LisaaF says:

    I wish I new how to choose the correct plants for my yard. My definition of “correct”…plants that are optimal for my yard’s growing conditions that I can keep alive and growing from one year to the next.

  271. Sarah says:

    I can decorate cakes with ease, I even run my own business making cakes and cupcakes, but can I do a simple eyeliner flick? No I cannot!

  272. Erika B says:

    I don’t mind doing laundry at all… but I’d rather do ANYTHING than wash the dishes!!

  273. Supaporn says:

    I’ve been to the fashion show. It’s wonderful. All the fabric, style as well as model are great.

  274. Carolyn Barnett says:

    We will be cooking on memorial day which is today!

  275. Ana Souza says:

    I lost count of how many times the salesperson just tells me what is written in the packaging, really? I know how to read! Most of the time I end up searching on the internet for more info. Makeup counter workers are trained in sales, not product knowledge. Sometimes they “make stuff up” cause they have limited experience of what they do know.

  276. Loris Ayoub says:

    hello my dear… I am happy today :-)
    hope you are well

  277. leyla says:

    My least favorite household chore is definitely cleaning the sink/floor.

  278. Diane says:

    Least favorite chore is vacuuming the stairs. The vacuum I have is so heavy and cumbersome-great for the rest of the house, but not stairs.

  279. Iasmin says:

    I hope you’re all having a wonderful Memorial Day, relaxing and trying on new make up! As I dont live in the US, I using boring old make up and stuck in an office for the entire day.

  280. Olivia says:

    I wish it were still the weekend! It’s not a holiday where I am. We had our holiday Monday last week!

  281. Natalie Brown says:

    Hi! Since I’m lacking verve right now & I’m drinking coffee to get my verve on, I’ll be going to the pool in a couple of hours. Those are my big Memorial Day plans. lol Thanks for being your funny self!!

  282. Kate G says:

    I wish I knew how to sleep better. And I can’t stand doing the dishes.

    my dad tells the best stories

  284. Ivana Jankovic says:

    I wish I can apply false eyelashes :)

  285. Ilse says:

    I wish i knew how to order my favourite make up, up here in the Netherlands…

  286. Jessie says:

    Sometimes I do feel like I know more about makeup than the girls working at the counter or store when they color match my foundation wrong!

  287. Dana says:

    I usually find that I know more about cosmetics than half of the people that actually work some of the cosmetics counters. It’s kind of funny but sad at the same time lol

  288. Camille says:

    Karen! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend! My friends wanted to see X-Men also. I feel like it’ll be a good DVD rental. Movies are so expensive, so I want it to be a good one. I’d rather watch The Neighbors. LoL.

    Happy Memorial DAy!

  289. Mi says:

    I’m obsessed with my Naked 2 palette! And hi Karen. :)

  295. Melinda L. says:

    Least favourite chore is cleaning the washroom. yuck!

    I wish i knew how to put on false eyelashes!

    Today I’m relaxing with my kids and husband on this Summery Memorial day :)

  298. Kalli Melia says:

    I need to stop baking cookies! I’ve made 3 batches and am thinking of making another. At least I give them away and don’t eat them all….

  299. Hannah says:

    I wish I had time to sew, getting ready to move is both good and bad.

  300. Regina Reed says:

    I am actually spending my Memorial Day at the office! BOO. I have too much on my plate and too little time to get it done…

  309. Erica M. says:

    Least favorite chore..,taking out the trash!

  310. Yolanda Liu says:

  312. Kim says:

    I wish I knew how to apply falsies

  313. Andrea Darst says:

    I wish I knew how to sew!

  314. Cyan K. says:

    I have been to more than one fashion show. The last one was probably the most meaningful for me because it was the graduation/final show for my friend that was graduating from college with a degree in fashion design. It was great to go and support her and see all of her hard work come to fruition.

  315. Bons says:

    Vacuuming is my least favourite chore

  316. Rebecca says:
