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

Tabs the Cat Presents a Makeup and Beauty Blog Giveaway


Good morning, glory. Happy first official Caturday of fall. πŸ™‚

Tabs loves this time of year because of the leaves falling. He’ll sit on a windowsill and just stare outside for hours watching the leaves fall. I think the constant movement of the leaves blowing in the wind drives his fine-tuned feline senses wild. Cats crave stimulus, ya know? Even when it drives them to mewl and climb the walls.

Yup, cats are weird…

In other news, I learned a valuable lesson yesterday about getting things done. It’s actually not a new lesson for me. I’ve learned it about a million times before, but I thought I’d pass it on, just in case.

Here it is: if you’re working on a project or anything that means something to you, get an early start, and don’t procrastinate, because I procrastinated yesterday, and now my project isn’t done.

It wasn’t a big deal, but I wanted to call this one company I Googled about ordering some modular wood storage shelving for my office, but I kept dillydallying. Then, when I finally gave them a call in the afternoon, their office was closed.

Because they’re on the East Coast. And I forgot about the time difference.


Oh, well. Guess it’ll have to wait till Monday.

Have a wonderful weekend, babe, and good luck in the giveaway. Maybe we’ll bump into each other on Twitter or Facebook today.

  1. Olivia K says:

    I tried the Oikos brand chocolate organic icecream, let me say gag.

  2. Jennifer says:

    I always do my makeup in my bedroom! I’ve done a guy’s makeup but it was in high school theatre and they all looked like ghosts. I have the photos to prove it and they’re hilaaaarious.

  3. Molly Waters says:

    You are so fabulous! I’ve been reading your blog for a few years now and I’m continually impressed. Keep up the good work, it’s not unnoticed!

  4. Ellen says:

    I do my makeup in my bedroom too – but I shouldn’t because the lighting is terrible! I’ve learned to adjust for that, though.

    I’ve flown on a plain…at least 100 times, I’d think. We traveled a lot when I was growing up, so between that and back-and-forth from college…I can’t believe how many flights I’ve taken!

  5. Jessica says:

    Love reading your blog

  6. Poppy says:

    I’ve just set up a new makeup area in my bedroom and am loving it! I need to get a little more lighting, but once I do…oh, I will feel like such a makeup diva. πŸ™‚

  7. Crystal F. says:

    I like doing my makeup in my bedroom by my window, which is upstairs and gets majority of the morning sunlight. And it’s easier to move my makeup back and forth with the least amount of damage. I don’t have a vanity, just a medium-sized plastic drawer container thingy that I think I need to upgrade :>

  8. Emilee says:

    I do my makeup in my “office” at my desk because of the lamp. I wish the lighting in my bathroom was better!

  9. Lena says:

    I’ve never done makeup on a man!

  10. Alondra Estrada says:

    My favorite place to do makeup is in front of my closet, well because… it’s all ONE GIANT MIRROR πŸ˜€ Perfect for seeing everything that’s going on lol.

  11. Jacque says:

    Thrifty ice cream, yes! I’ve actually commented about this on your blog before! My hubby and I went to Rite Aid recently where they opened a Thrifty ice cream counter. Totally brought me back to when I was a kid and I used to eat gallons of the stuff. Hmmm….I think a trip for ice cream is in order.

  12. BeckBeck says:

    What drugstore carries Thrifty ice cream? I’ve never seen it! Here in New England we have Hood brand frozen Greek yogurt, and my husband and I are obsessed with the raspberry granola flavor.

  13. hanna says:

    Nope, never baked a pie.

  24. Agata says:

    Hi Karen, I have flown a plane more times than I can easily count. My favorite room to put make up on is the dining room, sitting at the table with my big magnifying lit up mirror. My Husband hates that!

  25. Jessica H says:

    I’ve had one ex let me do his makeup, I’m still working on my husband though! Maybe I can get to him after a few glasses of wine. Also, I’m so excited for the Breaking Bad finale!

  26. Heidi says:

    Oh yeah, growing up in Novato, I’d go over to the local Thrifty’s drugstore all the time for their ice cream. Mint chocolate chip, baby!

  27. Irene says:

    Hi Karen!
    I have to do my makeup standing up in front of my dresser; not exactly the most comfortable position, but i have to make do… At least it’s just next to a window!

    I’ve attempted to bake an apple pie once, but it turned out horrible, LOL.

  35. Justine says:

    I’ve never done a man’s makeup.

  36. Rachel P says:

    Woooo giveaway time!! I feel like I win the unique vehicle award because I have driven a marine travel lift before. When boats are too big/heavy to be hauled out of the water by trailer, you put them in a lift, where they are supported by huge straps. I have driven a 35-ton marine travel lift and have video evidence! Also, I have baked several pies, the biggest success was an apple pie with a crosshatch top and little crust heart in the middle!

  37. Joni says:

    Hi karen! I’ve never flown in a plane! =/ My favorite spot to do my makeup is in front of my computer at my desk. The light comes in the window just perfect!

  44. Debbie says:

    Wearing bright red lipstick while I do laundry – cause why not πŸ™‚

  45. Joanne E. says:

    I have never done a man’s makeup but I have plucked a boyfriend’s brows. It needed to be done!

  53. Edna says:

    I can do my makeup anywhere, but I prefer the bathroom there’s more light and a big mirror

  54. Julio says:

    My favorite please to do my makeup is my room. I love standing infront of my huge mirror and doing it. I hate sitting down and doing it. I feel weird.

  56. Liz says:

    I do my makeup at my vanity in my bedroom.

  57. Tina Renee B. says:

    I found out this morning that my beloved 7 yr. old female cat, Olivia, is going to have to have surgery next Wed. to remove a rather large bladder stone. Poor baby! She acts completely normal but has blood in her urine so I’ll be relieved when she gets rid of the stone!

  58. Roxanne says:

    Last printed book purchased was Forever Odd. Decent, but not as good as the original Odd Thomas.

  63. Lynn says:

    Before Boarders finally closed… picked up Say You’re One of them and Pillars of the Earth. Both really great books, now I browse used book stores, but i really miss Boarders!

    My favorite place at home to do makeup is my dressing room. I do it at my vanity.

  65. Lydia Joy says:

    I don’t know if it’s really my “favorite place,” but it’s definitely mandatory.. I have this inability to be off the ground when I put on my makeup. I feel so uncomfortable when I sit in a chair or stand up as I’m “putting my face on.”

    The answer to your question? On the floor with some nice, natural light. xx

  66. Meg says:

    My favorite place to do my makeup at home is at my vanity – it’s my “me” time!

  67. Mahdi M says:

    I do my makeup in my “woman cave”. I have my makeup desk on one wall, and my computer area along the other wall, so all I have to do is swivel! My makeup desk looks a lot like a shrine dedicated to the makeup gods.

  68. Sylvia says:

    I do my make up at my vanity. This year I finally hunted down an antique vanity, and I’ve wanted one since I was little.

    4. I work at a movie theater ( I am still not sick of popcorn)
    5. I love your blog πŸ™‚
    Have a great day!

  160. Karen says:

    Love the blog!

  161. Danielle says:

    I have done mens’ makeup – for a gothic club. So mnay compliments! It was great.

  162. Jessica says:

    Men’s makeup is the only makeup I applied to another person! (For Halloween)

  163. Since we have a small and poorly lit bathroom, I prefer to do my makeup sitting down in front of a full length mirror in our bedroom. My husband is usually still meditating when I need to get my makeup on, so I do it sitting down in a spare room and that works ok too. I do notice I make more mistakes with blending because the lighting stinks.

  164. Laura says:

    I have no where to do my make up =/ hopefully I’ll get something set up soon because sitting on the floor on a bunch of litter is not the way to go

  165. Isabelle says:

    I love doing my makeup in the spare room where I’ve got my vanity set up since a week or two! I love having a space of my own to keep my things now πŸ™‚

  166. Juvy says:

    The last printed book I purchased was the Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual! Love it so much! πŸ™‚

  167. Siobhan says:

    As a college student, I’m forced to do my makeup at my tiny desk in my tiny student apartment. It has more makeup on it than books now, I think!

  168. Marina says:

    I am loving the army trend this fall! Can’t get enough of those combat boots- my wishlist includes ones in stone, black, brown and oxblood!

  169. Melinda L. says:

    I recently purchased 35 books from a used book store…so that’s a lot of books to list πŸ˜›

  170. B.W. says:

    The last printed book I bought was my heavy hardcover audit textbook which cost quite a lot ='(

  171. Garin says:

    I was going to answer the question on planes – my longest flight was to Japan at over 16 hours. That was jetCOMA. Being a guy myself, I’ll expand on that one. I’m an avid makeup fan and like to experiment on a daily basis. It’s because of blogs like yours, hours of YouTube tutorials, and the like that I’ve been able to do it better. Amplify, correct, la shabam! My face shape and features are fairly androgynous and forgiving as well, which suffice it to say, makes playing them up slightly more normative or digestible.

    P.S. I wish my cat was as interactive as yours is! He could stare at a wall and be entertained, no laser required -_-

  172. Valeria Mary says:

    i LOVE sephora!!!!!!!!! Γ’β„’Β₯

    During the fall season I like majority of the pumpkin themed food items. Today I tried some pumpkin muffins and they were very delicious!

  180. Eileen says:

    Have you smelled the fall bath& body works candle pumpkin pecan waffles? i think its the bee’s knees! i do think it kind of smells more like kettle corn to me though…

  185. Lynda says:

    I will be baking my first ever pie from scratch this Thanksgiving – my first ever away from home!

    i just baked an apple pie yesterday πŸ™‚

  196. ashly says:

    Hey karen when i bought the disney princess jasmine pallete i just opened it to look at it & put it back in the box. Well the next day i came home from work to find that my 7mth puppy chewed thru the sephora box & ruined the palette packagin. I was so upset i was ready to give him away since he had already chewed 3 chargers,flip flop,my bf hat lol but I got over it & just ordered it AGAIN. Damn dog! Lol but i love him

  197. MK says:

    I bought the hardcover copy of “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn. Highly recommend!

  198. Linda says:

    Love that Thrifty ice cream. Sometimes in the summer, if I can’t think of anything to have for lunch, I’ll just pop into a Rite Aid and get a scoop. Everyone always looks at my ice cream and says that they wished they had thought to do the same.

  199. ashly says:

    Now my cat she is the most behaved out of my family. my 2sons who are 3 & 5, the dog who is just 1 & my bf. She is a 7yr old calico & if im wearing lipstick or lipgloss I grab her face, kiss her in the mouth so it looks like she is wearing lipstick too LOL

  200. Kirsten H. says:

    Oh wow. I have probably flown in a plane about 60 times. Maybe. Not sure. It’s really hard to guesstimate because I have been doing it since I was little!

  201. CLSJR says:

    We got a new puppy last week. He makes #3. He hasn’t been officially named yet because we don’t know his personality yet, so we call him George. We call all our pets George until they are officially named.

  202. Maria J. says:

    Favorite place to do my makeup is my bathroom because of the lighting.

  203. Step says:

    The last print book I bought was Game of Thrones. I didn’t think I’d be able to handle all that text on an ereader.

  204. Nicole says:

    Superexcited! Purchased the UD Shattered and Vice 2 palettes tonight XD

  205. Hazel says:

    Gosh. I’m eyeing Tarte’s holiday sets. I need them in my life! Happy Sunday, everybody!

  206. Nicole says:

    I always do my makeup in my bedroom at my desk since I get the best lighting there. When I was a senior in high school I did a boy’s makeup in my physics class since we were all bored. (It was a week before graduation).

  207. Caitlyn says:

    I do my makeup at my vanity in my room! I have pretty good lighting and love my huge mirror! Plus it kinda makes me feel like a princess… Hehe My favorite TV show is Downton Abbey! I can’t bake or cook to save my life. I’m a freshman music education major in college and I’m literally obsessed with makeup!!!

  208. Heena says:

    I put foundation on my brother, does that count? Lol

  209. cristina says:

    Happy weekend!

    I work at a bookstore almost solely for the discount. (If only I had time to work at Sephora, too!) And the last book I bought was Junot Diaz’s This is How You Lose Her, which he signed when he came through SF!!! Amazing book by a writer unlike any other.

  213. Mimi says:

    What’s your favorite breed of cat?! Mine is the Hairless cat!

  214. Ruth says:

    Just started watching Modern Family in reruns from the beginning. Such a funny show!

  216. kim says:

    Yes please…that would be marvelous!

  217. Dhariane says:

    I have actually never flown in an airplane. This must be remedied. I recently just pre-ordered Allegiant, the last book in the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. I didn’t completely love the second book but I’m excited to see how all the loose ends are tied up.

  218. Y. says:

    yes omg! I’ve had that brand of ic before! my little brother is obsessed with it!!

  219. Vivian says:

    I just discovered Thrifty ice cream and oh how I’ve been missing out! Pecan praline is the best! πŸ™‚

  220. Erin says:

    I’ve never baked a pie for real, I’ve only made the kind where you fill a pre-made graham cracker crust with chocolate pudding and top with Cool Whip. Sort of a cheat move, but still really tasty.

  221. Bunny says:

    I’ve never been on an airplane, but I guess I kind of know a lot about them LOL

    I bake a mean pumpkin pie! not sure if I’m going to do any this year or not. Canadian thanksgiving is coming up very fast, my place is such a mess after moving and a lot of family is moving this October too.

  222. Grace Gonzales says:

    The best pie I’ve baked was a banana cream pie.

  223. MelodyJ says:

    I bake pies. I have some end of the season fresh peaches. I’m going to make a cobbler. But after that I’m going to into fall mode.

    I usually put on my makeup in the bathroom. I don’t like to fly but I’ve been on a plane at least 6 times and yet I want to sky dive. I drove a boat a few times while eating Homemade ice cream. I bought Pharrell: Places and Spaces I’ve Been… haven’t read it yet. It’s still shrink wrapped. I curled my guy friend’s lashes once and even made him an apple pie!

  227. I havent yet done makeup for men but woudl love to do it on my hubbyy!! πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  228. Supriya says:

    I have never done a man’s makeup but dying to put mascara on my husband’s lashes…they are super long! πŸ™‚ He refuses to let me do so….lol!

  229. Jess Scull says:

    I always do my makeup in my very messy beauty room haha

  230. Alison says:

    I really like doing my makeup in my room, near the window

  231. Andria L says:

    My highschool BF had the most amazing eyelashes and one time I was able to talk him into letting me put mascara on him. It was pretty funny and I was secretly a little jealous. So I’m not sure if that counts as doing makeup for a man… but I’ve never been able to talk any other BF into it since πŸ™‚

    I am overdue for a sephora visit! I’ve got my eye on a new too faced palette…

  242. Diana says:

    Yum! Thrifty ice cream. My fave is mint chip. Nobody can top the thin chocolate shavings. It just can’t be duplicated.

  243. Ingrid says:

    I also think it’s important not to procrastinate and to get things done, otherwise they don’t seem to happen ever! Sometimes I seem to find all sorts of silly excuses not to get something done and I regret not doing it in the end! If I’d done it right at the beginning I’d be happy and on my way! Haha

  244. Monica says:

    My cat’s name is Josie. It looks like she wears eyeliner.

  245. sylvia says:

    i do my makeup at the wall mirror in the dining room! the bathroom lighting is awful :/

  246. Wendy D. says:

    I LOVED Thrifty’s ice cream as a kid! What a treat on a hot day! When my husband and I were first married and on a tight budget, we’d walk to a nearby Thrifty’s for a double scoop! I miss those days! Γ’β„’Β₯

  247. Caitlin M says:

    My favorite place to do my makeup is in my bedroom.

  248. Denise says:

    I have a small desk set up by the window in my bedroom where I do my makeup. Before that, I’d do it wherever was easiest. Bathroom, kitchen table, wherever. I like having a separate section now just for makeup.

    I tried the Oikos brand chocolate organic icecream, let me say gag.

  258. Sophie says:

    I like to do my makeup in the bathroom because of the sink and mirror.

  259. Kelsey says:

    I do my makeup in the bathroom, though my makeup itself is stored in my bedroom. I read in Allure (I think) that leaving your makeup in the bathroom can affect the products shelf life, since bathrooms get all steamy when you take a shower. That and I just have too much of the stuff to keep it in there hahaha!

  260. leamsy says:

    I love doing my makeup in my room!I really enjoy the natural lighing.

  261. maddy says:

    i baked a cherry pie with my mama when i was little, it was so fun!

  262. TrippyPixie says:

    I always do my makeup in my bathroom! My bathroom’s right next to an upstairs porch, so if I open my door, I get natural light that comes in and mixes with my bathroom light. Also, for some reason, I have to apply my makeup while standing. I can’t do it while sitting!

  263. Stacy says:

  266. Anum says:

    I always do my makeup at my bathroom counter. Good lighting

  267. Lori P says:

  269. Julia says:

    I have two Diorblush cheek cremes that I am really loving right now. I have Bikini and Pareo, both of which I think are beautiful. These are some of the best beauty purchases that I’ve made in a long time.

  270. Anita says:

    I have to sit on my bed, and hold a magnification mirror in my hand while do my makeup because I wear glasses, and I can’t see without them, obviously. I can’t really apply eyeliner though due to this technique.

  271. Emily says:

    I love making pies from scratch in the fall.

  272. Mardi says:

    I do my makeup at my custom designed built in dressing table in my dressing room. Sounds luxe – and it is to a point – but there’s little storage and the light hits on one side of my face from the window πŸ™

  273. I just had Thrifty Ice Cream yesterday! Chocolate Malt Crunch FTW

  274. Sarah says:

    I have never heard of Thrifty brand ice cream.

  275. Allison says:

    I have a beautiful antique makeup table under a crystal chandelier in my bedroom, but I usually apply my makeup either at the sink or standing next to the window in my bathroom or bedroom, depending on where the light is. What a waste of a beautiful makeup table lol

  330. Greta says:

    My favorite ice cream is Haagan Dazs creme brûlée.

  331. Susan S says:

    I’ve been obsessed with making new and exciting variations on bread pudding and custard lately. The last bread pudding involved fruitcake frozen from last Christmas, and it was AMAZING. The next one will contain crumbled, stale chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and my most recent custard involved Middle Eastern spices and thinly-sliced overripe pears I got on the clearance table at Natural Grocers for $2. Best pears I’ve ever tasted.

  332. Andrea Darst says:

    I love everything about fall – the colors, the fashions, the scents, the foods and the football!

  333. Danielle Dufault says:

    I love baking pie. I’ve already made fresh apple pie and pumpkin pie this season. I want to make more!

  334. Majick says:

    pillsbury refridgerated pie crusts make baking a pie SO easy – don’t forget the cans of filling. LOL (ok, my hubs makes the pies from scratch) πŸ˜‰

    My favorite place to do makeup in my house is the master bathroom because ALL my stuff is at my disposal.

  335. myriam says:

    The last book I bought, and read, was the catcher in the rye.

    I have never flown by plane, or any other way for that matter.

    I baked an apple pie once, more watched my friend do it while I pretend to do something so it would be a success.

  336. Lauren says:

    Usually do my make-up over my dresser in my bedroom, but I really want a vanity like my niece’s from -you guessed-Tarjay, its fab; flip up mirror, drawers sooo 1940s!
    Love it

  353. Avery says:

    Last night I had tempura ice cream and it was amazing!

    I also have done numerous men’s makeup looks before. Not only does my boyfriend let me use him as a model for makeup creations, but I have had previous drag queen friends and such.

  355. Daisy D Alary says:

    i forget about the time difference too. calling on a friday afternoon to get the “office is closed” message and going, but it’s only 2:05pm?! then remembering the time difference just makes me go d’oh!

    as for ice cream, thrifty rocks! πŸ™‚

  363. Amy B. says:

    I’ve never done a guy’s makeup but I did supply a guy friend with makeup that he used to attempt a smokey eye on his girlfriend. End results: basically black/ dark eyeshadows over her lids, us in hysterics, and video that will forever be used to black mail him =)

  364. Erica says:

    I just bought Terry McMillan’s latest book last Friday to read on the train here in NYC. Can’t remember the name of the book! It is a good read though. I haven’t done makeup on a man and my favorite place to apply my makeup is on my kitchen table with my magnifying makeup mirror. I prefer rustic fruit tarts to pies except during the holidays. I make sweet potato pies and peach pies very well.

  365. Jordi says:

    The strangest vehicle I know how to “drive”? A plasmacar. Those things are fun, and since I’m short, I don’t hit my head with my knees like other adults do!

  366. brittany says:

  371. Anastasia says:

    I was born at a Masons & Eastern Stars Convention in Kansas City, MO and flew back home to Detroit, MI when I was 3 days old!… That should make up for me not remembering how many times I’ve flown. : )

  372. chibicheeks says:

    I’ve flown on a plane at least once a year since I was eight.

  374. Wendy Lange says:

    My favourite place to put on my makeup is at my vanity in my bedroom. I’ve flown on a plane 20+ times. The most unusual vehicle I can drive would be a bumper car! The latest book I purchased would be Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. I have done a man’s makeup. I have baked pumpkin pie.

    Thanks for the giveaway!
