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

beefsteak“Oh, my head…” said the big beefsteak tomato plant, “I feel like crap this morning.” Many of its leaves were yellow and speckled brown.

“You big baby!” chortled one of the roma tomato plants nearby. “You don’t even have a head!”

“I don’t?” said the beefsteak plant, genuinely surprised. “Are you sure?”

“Of course I’m sure,” answered the roma plant. “You’re just a stupid plant. I, on the other hand, am sophisticated and wise.”

“Oh…” said the beefsteak. “Do you know why I feel so bad?”

The beefsteak wasn’t doing well. Unlike the roma, who lived in a large wooden planter box with excellent drainage, the beefsteak lived in a large 18-inch plastic pot with a single small hole at the base for drainage. The pot sat flush on the wooden slats of the deck, lacking clearance beneath the pot for ventilation and drainage. Its soil was damp to the touch, even though the last watering was yesterday morning. Mushrooms sprouted up from the soil around the tomato’s stalk.

Roma“You drank too much last night, you big goof!” said the roma, whose soil was cool and dry. Multiple large drainage holes were cut into the base of its wooden container.

“I did?” replied the beefsteak, confused. “I don’t… Oh, yeah! I remember now. Duuude, last night was off the chain! I drank all night.”

“Idiot,” interrupted the roma.

“What time did I get home?” asked the beefsteak.

The roma paused. “What time did you get home?” it asked. “Seriously? Are you really that dense? You never even left the deck. You just sat there drinking water the whole time.”

“I did?” said the beefsteak. “Whoa! Huh-huh… It must have been one hell of a night!”


LOL! That was fun… :) Good morning, glory! Rise and shine, my friend. It’s going to be a beautiful day. This little story actually has some truth to it because I think I am overwatering my plants. A couple of the tomatoes aren’t doing too well, and one of the potted lavender plants.

They all like different amounts of water, so it’s a work in progress. I’m still trying to figure it out. Plus, if you’re a plant, Tabs isn’t the easiest co-gardener to work with. He bites…plants.

I’m just getting started with my day, having my first cup of coffee and fiddling around. I hope your weekend gets off to a great start.

One of my coworkers (yes, I’m referring to Tabs) is having a birthday on Monday, so we’ll probably do something fun.

Talk to you soon. Good luck in the giveaway.

    Love your blog and your style Karen :)

  4. Katy says:

    My plans this weekend revolve around watching the French Open finals. I love me some Djokovic!
    I also enjoy contouring. I have a chubby face, and it makes a world of difference. I’m not great at making it look natural yet, but it is wonderful.

  5. Camille says:

    Aw, poor beefsteak tomato plant! I have given up on plants. I had a money tree when I first moved in with The Man, in 2010. It soon died, probably from root rot :( I bought a Peace Lily a few months ago, because I read it’s good with cleansing the bathroom air.

    I left for a week, and I came back to a wilted plant. :( So I have given up.

    Plants are wonderful, but I find that gnats always gravitate to the plants. booooo.

    I will probably invest in more air purifiers. :( I wish I could take care of plants as well as my parents. *sigh*

    HAve a lovely weekend, Karen!

  6. Sanne says:

  25. What are your plans for this weekend?
    Karen will do some reviews for for the blog, do some cleaning in my accounting office, caring for a dog that passes here, play with my fluffy cat
    I will also do some work that I have pending, I think I will not leave the house after just gonna relax.

    The # 1 gardening tip? I love gardening, alias you gave me a great idea, I cut the dried leaves of the tree of the garden.

    What is the most exciting thing you’ve ever done?
    I think it was down a super high slide at the water park I went with my mother, and she did not want me to come down, then I went and she was hidden down there calling me to get down.

    Favorite talk show? Danilo Gentilli Sbt

    I am very proud to make my parents happy with my work

    You do not highlighting and / or contour with your makeup? I love makeup, and not do contour (still do not know) I play on more bases in the face of spending my favorite is the hourglass illusion.

    Milk Chocolate: yes or no? Yes I love chocolate!

  26. catherine says:

    YES chocolate milk!!!

  27. Joni says:

    Hi karen, hope you are having a great weekend. My son is a big chocolate milk lover, I like it some too.

  28. Ellen says:

    I’m proud of (and thankful for) my happy, healthy son!

  29. Maria J. says:

    My Favorite talk show is the Wendy Williams show, I guess I love juicy gossip and how she keeps it real with her audience.

  30. Angelika Mastela says:

    I don’t have any plans for this weekend.. I’ll just stay in my bed and watch some good movies :D oh.. and of course i love chocolate milk *.*

  31. Paula says:

  32. Alix says:

    Chocolate milk and milk chocolate!

    I’ve never been a fan of chocolate milk. I just stick to water, coffee, and green tea :)

  34. Lyndsey B. says:

    NO to chocolate milk!

  35. michaela says:

    ive had the worst allergies outside!

  40. Anastasia says:

    Chocolate milk: yes

  41. stacey says:

    I love to highlight and contour! It is part of my daily makeup routine. I use Too Faced Chocolate soileil to contour, and I have a number of favorite powder highlights to finish. Much of my highlighting is done with whatever luminizing highlighter pen I have laying around!

  42. Jessi says:

    I occasionally highlight but contouring scares me. The only reason I even own bronzer is from subscription boxes.

  43. Erin says:

    I’ll be working all weekend. Which is no fun because the weather is beautiful!

  44. Lulubelle says:

    The most exhilarating thing I’ve probably ever done is rock climbing a night. I was terrified while doing it, but it must have released tons of good neurochemicals, because I felt great afterwards!

  45. Jessica davis says:

    So excited for my sister to come to live with me on the east coast. She’s moving from San Francisco this week! We just moved from the Bay Area last year. Barely surviving, but will be a lot more tolerable with my sis here! Would love to win and go shop with my sis when she gets here Thursday!
    Thank you

    We’re celebrating my Mom’s 83rd birthday today!

  50. Allison C says:

    Speaking of gardening, this weekend, meaning later today, Jeff and I are heading to Home Depot to buy the materials for the big fence he’s going to build around my garden to stop the critters from eating all the veggies I’m trying to grow. The rabbits ate all the kale that came back from last year down to the stalk, except the left the Russian kale. I guess they didn’t like the taste of that one, and I don’t either! Great giveaway
    Allison C recently posted … Weekly Roundup 7 June 2014 Beauty Blog Coalition

    • Karen says:

      Hi Allison,

      I hope the critter fence works! We have lots of varmints here too. Every time we try to plant anything tasty in our actual outside landscape area it’s toast within days. All of our tomatoes and things are on our deck because it’s the only place the burrowing buggers can’t reach!

      Good luck and have a great weekend.

  51. Carrie says:

    Ahhhh! Excited excited excited for those NARS shadows!

  52. Sumeet says:

    Chocolate milk: HECK YES

  55. Christin says:

    I have a belly button

  56. Chels B says:

    Chocolate milk in cereal – yes!

  57. Amanda Mendez says:

    No plans this weekend which makes me very happy!! Love lazy weekends, do have a little work to do but I normally do every weekend.

    I do not know how to properly highlight/ contour but it is always something I have wanted to learn!

  58. Katie says:

    Way too lazy to ever attempt contouring, haha. I always highlight, though!

  59. Kim says:

    My parents are visiting this weekend. It’ll be fun hanging out with family.

  60. monica says:

  61. athena says:

    I’d love to use this gift card as a gift for my mom! Her birthday is coming up fast and I don’t know what to get her!

  62. Diana says:

    I’m am qvc obsessed!!! It’s an addiction I’m truly ok with ;) It helps feed my make-up/ skincare obsession

    I’m flying out to look at apartments for my new job tomorrow. Exciting!

  64. Laurinha says:

    I’m very proud of my sons!

  65. Meahlyn says:

    It’s my dad’s birthday on Monday too! They’re so lucky to have beautiful weather for the weekend.

  66. Beth says:

    For years I’ve wanted a “zen” space in the far corner of my backyard. This week, I found the perfect teak bench and little end table. They’re set behind a bed of lilies and hostas, underneath an old pine tree. I nestled a little ceramic bird bath in between the tree roots, and decorated around that with some smooth river stones. It’s such a sweet little refuge now!

  67. Andrea Amy says:

    I don’t personally like chocolate milk, but my kids drink it everyday.

  68. Amber says:

    Going to the lake this weekend! Can’t wait. I need some sun and water fun.

  70. Aury says:

    I highlight every day. I usually do it on my cheekbones, brow bone, and in the corner of my eye. It’s really simple, but it makes me look so awake and fresh. I usually only contour if I’m feeling fancy (or pale).

  71. Denise F says:

    When I have the time I would love to go to Sephora and have someone show me how to do contouring.

  72. Bianca Rogoveanu says:

    I contour almost every day, but i only highlight on special occasions !

  78. Lisa says:

    Just have plans to have a relaxing and laid back weekend~

  79. Jessie says:

    I will lightly highlight and contour for special occasions or if I’m going out on the weekend, but I definitely don’t have time in the morning to do it on a daily basis!

  80. Rhia says:

    I love chocolate milk, especially Silk’s chocolate soy milk. Yum.

  81. Liz says:

    This weekend we are going to a pro soccer game.

  82. Lynn says:

    I don’t highlight, I feel like i already wear heavy foundation so I only use blush.

  83. Jessica says:

    Yes always to chocolate milk! I’m a personal trainer and it’s a great post-workout recovery drink. Oh, and it’s delicious, of course :)

  84. Ann says:

    Add peat moss to your top soil when planting.

  85. Stephanie says:

    I just hauled some new lipsticks and am absolutely giddy!

  86. Erika C. says:

    I’m loving the Queen Latifah show…it’s amazing.

  87. Amy says:

    I highlight and contour ALWAYS…but I live in southwest Florida so I’m always supposed to look like a sun goddess, right? In the fall and winter I will use only matte bronzed though. But it’s summer now and the glitter. Is. On. :)

  88. Lindsey L says:

    I watch Live! With Kelly & Michael religiously!!! My 3 year old says Kelly is Mommy’s best friend!

  89. Jennifer says:

    No big plans this weekend for us, just some relaxing in the – finally – nice mid 80′s weather. A big YES to chocolate milk.

    My greatest pride and joy is my daughter!

    My best gardening tip? Go to the farmers market!

  100. Ariel R says:

    I try to contour but nothing too dramatic. I have a very round face so I’m not convincing anyone haha

  102. Rebecca says:

    I am most proud that I got accepted to a dietetic internship and will be a registered dietitian by 2015!

    Chocolate milk: hell yes!!!!
    Meg recently posted … MAC Osbournes Collection Haul & Swatches!

  106. Allison says:

    Chocolate milk is an absolute yes, at any time. First rule of chocolate milk? Always say yes to chocolate milk. On a completely different note, i wish that I could manage to keep a plant alive-I am an unintentional plant murderer, unfortunately.

  107. Justine says:

    Yes to chocolate milk!

  108. kathy says:

    oh, yes. . . chocolate milk, chocolate almonds, chocolate ANYTHING!

  109. Jessica says:

    I love to use Rms Living Luminizer as a natural lit from within highlighter. I seem to have lost it at a hotel last week. I love it so much i think I’ll have to splurge and get another one!

  110. Valerie says:

    I do “cheater” contouring. I don’t go all out with lighter and darker foundation, but I use bronzer to add depth to my cheeks, forehead and jawline. Then blush above the bronzer, and a little luminizing powder on the top of my cheekbones.

  111. Makyla says:

    I have been LOVING highlighting and contouring lately! And yes to chocolate milk…but only if it’s almond milk :)
    Thanks for this generous giveaway, Karen! Have a great weekend, and God Bless!

  112. Jessica says:

    “Your #1 gardening tip?”
    I’m shocked, SHOCKED, that the plants I planted in March actually grew. No tips here, just pure amazement that I didn’t actually kill them!

  113. Cindy says:

    Chocolate milk = YES! lol

  114. This weekend I’m going to finish putting together a sketchbook and send it off to the printers. My friend’s mom is in town and I’m going to do karaoke with them and it’s going to be both terrible and amazing.

    When my cat was chewing cords I gave him a treat that’s kind of a chewy stick thing from the pet store, he likes chewing on that better and leaves my cords a lone, might help with the plant chewing.

  115. Veronica says:

    Chocolate Milk = yes!

  116. Jennifer X says:

    Yes to chocolate milk. No to highlighting, just because I’m not comfortable with it yet, but I have started trying out contouring.

  117. Kathleen Blackwell says:

    I highlight and contour everyday with my make up. My face doesn’t feel complete without it!

  118. Isabel says:

    Chocolate milk – definite yes! Especially the kind you get in little cartons at Starbucks… yum! Perfect with a little bit of Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzing powder contouring. :D

  119. Monica says:

    Yes to chocolate milk! lol

  120. maegan says:

    Yes! I always contour and highlight.

  121. Krista says:

    I’m trying to find a good highlighter/illuminator. I fell in love with Benefit’s High Beam, but my wallet did not, so I am in need of a dupe. I have my eye on NYX’s illuminator right now.

  122. Jessie C. says:

    Chocolate milk: YES!

  123. Fran S. says:

    Chocolate milk, YUM!! I love the super rich, local brand that comes in glass bottles.

  124. Laura says:

    Yes to chocolate milk!

  125. Candice C. says:

    Chocolate milk: yes, yes, and more yes. Especially if it’s the kind in the glass bottle. Much like Coca-Cola, it just tastes better.

  126. Dani says:

    I highlight on a daily basis. It’s just a little something that helps me look more awake and gives some vibrance to my skin. I really dig Nars Illuminator in Orgasm. I received a sample of it the last time in Sephora and it is absolutely gorgeous. Unfortunately, I’m a broke college student and I can’t afford to dish out $30 to buy a full size. Hopefully I’m able to win this gift card so I can make up the cost!

  127. Trying to reduce my beauty spending, but it’s so hard when there are so many pretty new things! Love the Nars eyeshadows.

  128. Aimen says:

    Chocolate milk is a definite yes and I plan on going to my best friend’s graduation tomorrow!

  129. Jennifer says:

    Yes chocolate milk! And I’m off to church camp for the next 4 days…

  130. Nicole says:

    I just came home from two hours at the vet – it looks like my little guy has a back injury. I just hope it heals quickly.

  131. Alyza Rae says:

    Weather permitting I am sooo hopping in the pool this weekend!

  132. Ashley Celikay says:

    I’m hanging with my best friend all weekend!

  133. Danielle says:

    This was so cute! And informative – I didn’t know that yellow tomato leaves = overwatering :)

  134. Lori P says:

    I don’t contour or highlight because of not having the time and with a very round face and mild rosacea…I think it would be an exercise in futility.

    Otherwise I LOVE chocolate milk!

  135. Lindsey M says:

    My plans this weekend involve learning to drive. ACHH. At least I don’t have mandatory driving classes like minors do. Oh, Public Transport. Why are you not as available here in the States as you are abroad?

  136. Jennifer Pham says:

    Waay yes to choco milk :)

  137. Kait says:

  142. Brenda says:

    I loooove cats!

  143. Brenda says:

    I love cats

  144. Icequeen81 says:

    Chocolate milk Yes, but needs to be dark chocolate or it must have
    allot of chocolate on it, I don’t like the taste of milk and more if its fresh.
    My best warm chocolate milk I have ever had come from a coffee machine they had In a a school where I was making my internship as teacher.
    I love warm and cold chocolate milk, But like I said it has to be thick and have allot of chocolate milk on it :)

    Talk show: umm Jimmy Kimmel has some funny sketches we like to watch :), But mostly I am not into talk shows

  145. Christine says:

    No plans this weekend — just relaxing time with my boo!

  146. Colleen Boudreau says:

    No to chocolate milk and regular milk.

  147. Kuhika says:

    Yes to chocolate soy milk!!!

  148. sarah says:

    I’m very proud of myself, I recently graduated college last Saturday, with my associates in science! This was a huge accomplishment for myself and my family, especially since I am the first in my family to receive a degree. Although I have another 2 years to complete my bachelors im proud to say, I am making my parents proud.

  149. Tania G says:

    Love chocolate but not milk. I will eat milk chocolate but prefer dark :)

  155. MsAnne says:

    I need to clean.

  156. Ivey G says:

    Chocolate milk yes! I love chocolate milk it’s so yummy:)

  157. Q says:

    Love the new hair you posted about a few entries ago, Karen, it looks super good on you! :)

    No gardening tips to pass on but I totally get it. Tried my hand at gardening for the first time ever and it went super well. Waiting for my tomatoes to ripen is killer, might’ve botched transplanting my peppers but that’s okay, and my cilantro and peas are shooting up like no one’s business. Finagling the watering process is rough especially since I have the moisture retentive type of soil in my pots right now so I’m still getting the hang of it. Good luck to you on your plants too, I hope your tomato plant fares better soon. :)

  167. Diana Gomez says:

    I’ve tried highlighting and contouring before but it’s not something I do everyday

  168. Milana says:

    I am a big fan of highlighting when putting on make-up! Conturing not so much as i find it difficult to get the right shade I would rather have less facial shape and not look like i have orange streaks below my cheek bone. If i knew how to contour properly on my face shape I totally would

  169. Lynda says:

    i used to like chocolate milk but not anymore.

  170. shana says:

  177. becca m says:

    Try a nitrogen rich fertilizer on the tomato plant, that could help. If it is one of the different wilt diseases though, you will just have to ditch the plant. Also, heck yeah to chocolate milk!

  178. Andy says:

    I have to slightly highlight and contour everyday, otherwise i’d look dead.

  182. Courtney says:

    “One of my coworkers (yes, I’m referring to Tabs) is having a birthday on Monday, so we’ll probably do something fun.” <— I laughed so hard at this. I've always thrown my dogs little birthday celebrations, too. Never too many excuses for cake.

  183. Gina says:

    I die over those new nars shadows!

  184. mrsshukra says:

    Always in a rush, no time for countouring!

  185. artemis says:

    I don’t do highlighting nor contouring because I have some acne marks right where these would be located, cheeks and chin….and there’s no point in only contouring my forehead and nose(especially the nose cause I always touch up with foundation there, so I would easily erase the effect.

  186. Alina says:

    Always yes to chocolate milk! :)

  187. Gracie says:

    Chocolate milk: Yes or No?

    It’s definitely a big yes for me! I loooooove it so much. <3

    I need to study this weekend but it’s not so bad, sitting in the sun on my balcony and eating grapefruits and mangos

  195. bindu says:

    i’ve never been all that into highlighting. At least on my its the type of thing that looks great right when its first applies but starts to look a bit off after a couple hours. Contouring on the other hand is something I do almost daily

  196. taahirah says:

    no to regular milk in general… almond milk all the way!!!

  197. Marloes says:

    Highlighting and contouring? Yes! I do not always highlight though. And speaking of chocolate milk, I just ordered Too Faced’s Chocolate Milk bronzer, for contouring! ;)

  220. Abby says:

    I always highlight and use bronzer. But I usually just use bronzer to subtly warm up my face, to give it a natural glow. I hardly ever use bronzer to contour, except for maybe on occasion, like a special day like date night or a girls night out…

My mom and I also hit up a nursery on the way home, and I bought myself a calico monkey flower on a whim. Pretty dang adorable!

I have such huge pores that they look like moon’s craters when I put anything shimmery. I wanted to love my MSF so much. but I guess I need to try it once more and if not, part with it….
