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

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun

A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway

You know that movie The Time Traveler’s Wife?


I watched it again… It was on TV last night.

That movie is just so incredibly sad, isn’t it? But neat. It’s like, here’s what happens when something that could be a gift is actually a curse.

Rachel McAdams sure knows how to pick those heart-wrenching love stories…

Speaking of gifts, happy caturday! Every day we share together, my friend, is a gift, and yes, that’s corny, but I do not care. Not one bit. πŸ™‚

How’s it going this morning? Did you do anything interesting or fun last night? El Hub and I had dinner at a Japanese place here in town that we hadn’t been to before (eh, it was OK), and then walked down the street and got ice cream at Powell’s Sweet Shoppe, and that store is always fun. I’m serious, if Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory had a satellite corporate office, it would probably look just like that store. They have every kind of candy imaginable, from chocolate-covered bacon necklaces to giant rainbow lollipops to caramel peanut clusters the size of small watermelons.

And after that we watched that movie at home. Pretty quiet evening.

Your nephew seems to be in good spirits this morning. Right after I woke up I pet him for a while, so he met his quota for lurvies, and as you know, his moods are pretty much entirely dependent on food and love. Like mommy like tabby.

Well, that’s about it for me. I’m gonna go make my first cup of coffee now and something to eat (Eggo waffles, perhaps?). Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway. Talk to you soon. πŸ™‚

  7. Amanda martin says:

    I think it would be so cool to time travel! That said, being the baby I am, I’d be way too scared that I’d get stuck in the wrong time if something were to go wrong.

    I think Oribe shampoos smell amazing!! Also, years ago I was in Central America for a couple months and they sold a Wella shampoo and conditioner that no joke had the best scent ever. I’ve never found it here. It came in a white and turquoise-ish bottle. I brought 10 back (I had to give up 2 to my BFF.) She and I got so many compliments because it was just strong enough to catch it if you were standing fairly close. I dream of going back and getting that shampoo again.

  8. Amber says:

    I would really like to win this giveaway Karen x

  9. I am more of a small stud earring kind of gal for day to day wear… which is funny since I love to really make up my eyes every day! To see them you’d think I was a dangle earring type! LOL! Harder to pull off dangles with really short hair!

    Miki recently posted … Benefit Gimme Brow Gives As Long As I Provide

  62. MARIAN D. says:

    I don’t know if I would like the ability of time travel if I had no control of what would happen. It would take you, or perhaps it could take you, to an extremely dangerous time in history. But then again, how flipping cool should it be to able to go back in time!!!!!! It would totally be like Doctor Who, and you could bring along whomever is with you at the time, and you could save the world, and have a cool looking tardis with a makeup room and stuff… so yeah. I would like the ability to time travel even if I had no control, because you do only live once. But what if you went back in time or forward in time and you found an immortality elixir!!! Then you could live for-like-ever. Long nights and studying does this to my brain…

  63. Amie F says:

    I almost always wear dangly earrings.

  64. Ashleigh says:

    Would you want the ability to time travel if you couldn’t control when it happened, or to what time you went? Uhh.. is the Archean on the table? because suddenly being transported to an atmosphere that couldn’t support life wouldn’t be any fun! πŸ˜‰

    What’s the best smelling shampoo? The Organix Keratin Therapy (brown bottle). Smells like cocoa butter dessert! I have it in my gym bag as an extra treat for after-workout showers πŸ™‚

  65. Kristina says:

    Favorite animated movie is Wall-e! So cute!!

  66. Sierra says:

    My favorite animated movie would have to be Up, it always makes me tear up a little and has such a heartfelt story.

  67. I’d say I’m more of a fan of studs.

  68. Katie says:

    I prefer studs for everyday, but I love big dangly earrings for going out!

  69. Daraya says:

    My favorite animated movie is How to Train Your Dragon! πŸ™‚

  70. margarita says:

  73. Alix says:

    Can’t wait for NARS Audacious lipsticks to come out next month!!!

  74. Laure says:

    I read the book before the movie came out and it’s suuuuch a good book. One of my favourites! I feel the book is better than the movie though, so if you get the chance, you should definitely read it.
    But I can’t say no to some Eric Bana. ;D

  75. Dimana Dyakova says:

    Waterparks, along ith amusement parks, are my favorite :)) So yeah – I’ve been to not just one πŸ˜€

  76. Dani says:

    I’m really thankful that I may have enough to live on with just one job (Minimum wage and tips). I don’t get to buy myself high end makeup often, but I cannot live without Guerlain Meteorites in the lightest shade. They are so time efficient and work well on my nc5-7 skin. Love them as a setting powder and they are also the powder I use to lock in my contour/bronzer. Will need to refill soon!

  77. tinatrev says:

    Ive ridden a segway & it was so much fun!

  78. Jessica says:

    I love both kinds of earrings, but for day to day, I like to wear small studs. I just noticed the comment above this, and I am obsessed with meteorites! I saw the preview for the holiday collection this year and I MUST have them! Have you seen it? The box has a bow on top and I think it was gold and red. I don’t even care what color the actual meteorites are. The tin is so lovely!!

  79. Angela says:

    Big danglies or none at all because, well, all I have are big danglies. Haha. I prefer fore my jewelry to be large and in charge like me.

  131. Zahra says:

    I love that movie! I cry every time tho haha. Box of tissues required!
    I feel like of you couldn’t control your time traveling ability you’d always be stuck with the past you know? Like even if you tried to change things you just don’t know how it will affect you, and you can’t really “move on”.

    One of the best smelling shampoos I’ve tried is from the Live Clean line. I think it’s the Monoi? It smells like piΓ±a coladas no joke πŸ™‚

  164. Lulubelle says:

    I don’t think I’d want to time travel if I couldn’t control when and where.

    I have been to a waterpark, one called Schliterbahn in New Braunfels, TX…it is awesome!

  170. Krizzie says:

    I just tried the Glamglow Youthmud thingie but just on my nose though to see what the hype is all about. I’m still unsure about it. Next time, I’ll try it on my whole face. Wish me luck!

  171. Barbara B says:

    I always wear French hook earrings. Don’t wear studs and can’t wear big dangly earrings cause I always manage to hook them when I comb my hair!

  172. Rachael Williams says:

    I am a hoop girl through and through..my hair is really curly so everything else gets caught in it! Have an amazing weekend everybody!!

  173. Ann Capulong says:

  175. Sharene says:

    Diamond studs!

    Beauty & The Beast is my favorite animated movie. I’m a bookaholic, and when he gives her the library…I just melt every time.

  177. Steffinie says:

    I have a bad habit of wearing the exact same bow stud earrings allll the time! I feel like they go with most things and then I just get too lazy to wear different ones.

  178. irini says:

    I’ve riden a scooter πŸ™‚

  179. Emily says:

    My kids love The Lego Movie, so that is at the top for me since it makes them laugh and laugh πŸ™‚

  180. Adrianne B says:

    My favorite animated movie is Disney’s Robin Hood. Love the soundtrack, the voice actors, the overall look. It’s an underappreciated film!

  181. Bridget Heiple Reich says:

    I like Biolage shampoo. I usually wear studs instead of dangle earrings.

  182. Sharon M says:

    I love Disney Movies! My boyfriend and I have the soundtrack to Frozen in the car and we don’t even have kids yet. I know he secretly listens to it when he’s by himself in the car πŸ™‚

  183. Debbie Clauer says:

    I have been to the water park at King’s Island several times.

  184. WHen my ears were pierced, I specialized in long crazy earrings. I might go get them redone when my oldest gets hers done.

  185. Anne G. says:

    I’d want to be able to go time traveling but control where i would want to go πŸ™‚

  186. Tela H. says:

    Have you ever heard about Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congentia? It’s a congenital birth defect that affects the joints. My brother has it and when he was born the doctors said he would never walk but guess what? He does! He’s my inspiration for going to medical school! πŸ˜€

  187. Ferrin says:

    Well…I love Doctor Who so if I could control my time travel, I probably would like that ability. It would be fascinating to get a peek at other times.

  188. Kylie says:

    I personally think Wella color care smells the best! And Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite movies, animated or otherwise.

  189. serina says:

    hey karen! currently sporting a honey and aspirin face mask right now hahaha but i love dangly earrings because my face is kind of round so it elongates it!!

  190. Vanessa says:

    I’ve been to water parks!… don’t know if I would go again, though…

  191. Ally says:

    Favorite animated movie?

  194. Linda says:

    I’ve ridden a scooter, but only once. It was strange how fast even slow speeds felt!

  195. Michaela says:

    If you mean a moped which is I think the same as a scooter, then yes, for the first time, in Italy, a foreign country, going the wrong way.Lol1

  196. Joanna says:

    I am a stud hands down. I swear I reach out 99% of the time for my studs than any other earrings.

  197. Grace says:

    Hey Karen! I don’t know what’s the best smelling shampoo, as long as it’s not overly scented is ok in my books. Speaking of smells, in a prior post you asked if I wear Philosophy Grace since I mentioned getting products in my name is a MUST HAVE. Actually I don’t wear it BUT I do have a bottle so yeah you were on the mark nevertheless… I can’t wear perfume ’cause it flares up my allergies and I sneeze everywhere.. not so attractive when perfume is supposed to be attracting lol ANDD on a different note, I’ve never rode a scooter BUT if I had the chance to time travel, I’d go back to when I visited Cuba and they were offering scooters since that’s how the locals travel. I chickened out boo

  198. hongyu says:

    The best lipstick I ever tried is Rouge Armani!

  199. Jessie says:

  202. Raziel says:

    Can’t say I’ve ever seen that movie before! And chocolate covered bacon sounds very interesting!

  203. Ashley says:

    I tend to wear big sparkly studs more than the dangley earrings. I also really like glittery hoop earrings too. Basically sparkle=big YES from me!

  204. Sidonie says:

    If I had the ability to time travel, I definitely wouldn’t try to change anything (that never goes well), but I’d do a TON of era-sightseeing. Athens during the Golden Age. The Malian Empire at its height. Medieval Japan. London under the reign of Queen Elizabeth. Florence in the Renaissance. I would go everywhere and be very quiet and unobtrusive and just observe. That would be amazing.

  205. Siobhan says:

    I am a sucker for anything Pixar!

  206. jacque says:

    Hi Karen. Sounds like a nice evening:) We’ve mostly stayed in this weekend because our dog hasn’t been feeling well. He’s 14 years old. We love him to pieces, so it’s been difficult to see him age. On a more happy note….I got the new Makeup Forever Artist Palette and I’ve been liking it so far-really pigmented and smooth.

  207. Kate says:

    My favorite animated movie is How to Train Your Dragon! πŸ˜€

  208. Nancy K says:

    I’ve recently started using korean skincare products and the results have been amazing! I highly recommend for anyone looking for new skincare products.

  209. Juliette says:

    If I could be any character in the entire fictional world, I’d be Korra from the avatar series (:

  210. Leanna says:

    The most recent time travel movie that I watched is “About Time”, which also stars Rachael McAdams. This one was a hanky or two movie for me…oh the waterworks. I definitely recommend it though!

    Chocolate and bacon…hmmm can’t go wrong with bacon…

    Thanks for the giveaway Karen! Good luck to everyone!

  211. TrippyPixie says:

    Scooters were my THING when I was a kid! I got one for my eighth birthday, and I would always ride it around! Since I can’t ride a bike (tried to learn 3 times and have completely failed), it’s a nice compromise.

  212. nlm8 says:

    Organix shampoo has the best scents!

  213. Thao says:

    My favorite animated movie is Wreck-it Ralph. I can watch it over and over again. I have watched it maybe a dozen times already.

    I am from Vietnam so driving a scooter is my life. I driver my scooter everywhere, to work, to the gym or even the convenient store nearby. I know we get lazy because of it but I can’t help it.

  214. Krista says:

    My favorite animated movie is The Incredibles. It’s not just good for an animated movie, it’s good as a film in general.

  215. Larissa punzalan says:

    The first time I webt to a waterpark/resort I almost drowned so now I’m terrified to swin XD

  219. Catherine says:

    I just discovered your blog (where have I been right?!) and I’m in LOVE with it! Your reviews are amazing and your pictures are beautiful! I’m a makeup addict too so I would be so happy to win the Sephora gift card! Thank you so much xxx πŸ™‚
    (I speak French, so excuse me for my English!)

  220. Liz says:

    When you say scooter, do you mean the ones kids ride (like a Razor scooter) or the kind with an engine that you need a license to drive (like a Vespa)? If the former, I’ve never ridden one. If the latter, I commuted on a Vespa for about 9 years – up until I replaced it with a Honda Rebel motorcycle. πŸ™‚

    That said, when it comes to earrings my motto is go big or go home.

  221. christine says:

    I love the scent of Oribe products!

  222. Kristie says:

    I think the best smelling shampoo and conditioner is the Citrus Verbena line from L’Occitane. It’s such a refreshing scent in the morning.

  223. Dana says:

    I have lots of favorite animated movies but I think the top one for me is “My Neighbor Totoro” because it brings back lots of childhood memories w/ my family. I still love Totoro to this day- my phone case even has Totoro & soot sprites on it πŸ™‚

  224. Jen says:

    I used to go to the Windsor, CA waterpark and ride the Doom flume when I was a kid!

  225. Hollie says:

    What’s my favorite animated movie? hmmm I honestly can’t name one, coz I’m an anime addict and I watch them all the time. But if there’s one that I’d want you to watch it’d be Hayao Miyazaki’s last work for Studio Ghibli, The Wind Rises. ^_^

    Btw, have you heard about a Filipino makeup brand “Happy Skin”? if you haven’t, do check it out ^_^

  226. Rozae says:

    I love dangles and small earring.

  227. Courtney W says:

    My favorite animated movie is Sleeping Beauty.

  228. Indoor kitteh says:

    OH OH OH there’s a shampoo by Kevin Murphy that smells EXACTLY like a manly leather-based cologne. So much so, I had to like give up the shampoo as I felt like I’d attract too many hot dudes with it as I was clearly wearing their smell.

    Speaking of hot dudes, is that guy on the MAC Novel Romance banner you have your hubs? Because HUBBA HUBBA. I mean, you both look very cute together. And if not, well DAMN tell me where you hang out to find someone like that for peekchures!


  229. Alessia says:

    Favorite animated movie has to be The Lion King!

  230. Katie F says:

    I did stand up paddleboard for the first time yesterday! It was much more successful than my attempt at surfing. The place I went to has “glow in the dark” paddles, where they put LED lights on the boards so you can see into the water in the dark. It was so cool! If you ever come to San Diego, you should try it. πŸ™‚

  231. Samantha Hill says:

    My mom always told me to never sleep in earrings but I have two upper cartilage piercings that I don’t know how to remove.. My regular ear piercings looooove dangly earrings.

  232. Jessica says:

    Hmm..I’m not sure what my favorite animated movie is now, but when I was younger it was definitely The Little Mermaid.
    I wanted to be Ariel!

  233. Tracy says:

    love finding nemo!

  234. Priscilla S. says:

    My favorite animated movie is The Little Mermaid.

  235. Isabella says:

    Yes to the time travel! So funny you picked that question cause the other day I was thinking I wish could just freeze time. Summer is coming to an end and being a student I wish I could stay all day in the sun, than just freeze time to study haha. It might come in handy in MAC stores as well πŸ˜‰

  236. Clare Tea (@icitea) says:

    And I’ll keep wonderin’ and wonderin’
    And wonderin’ and wonderin’
    When will my life begin?

    The song these lyrics are from is from my favorite animated film !

  237. Bertha says:

    I wear small hoops in my first holes and small studs in my second holes!

  238. Caitlyn says:

    Hi Karen!

    I wear studded earrings all the time and very rarely wear dangling earrings! I feel like they takeover my face.

  239. Kim says:

    I’ve never seen that movie but will keep it in mind the next time I feel like I need a tearjerker. πŸ™‚

  240. Emma says:

    I prefer small earrings πŸ™‚

  241. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    I wear big dangly earrings the most

  242. Steph says:

    I used to only wear big dangly earrings but I’m really into studs now. Granted they are really big studs… Some things never change!

  243. Alyssa Lee says:

    I used to wear a ton of big dangly earring and now all I wear is studs. I don’t even know why… Need to get back to my big earrings I think.

  244. Tracy says:

    My favorite animated movie is 101 Dalmatians. There’s something about the animation and the lack of vibrant color that brings me back to when I was little.

  245. Bee says:

    I hate Goodbyes Karen….. I really am in love with my current apartment right now where I see manatees and stingrays from my balcony. Also, I have such lovely friends in my Gym πŸ™
    and now I have to move to a different city in a month. I am supposedly an “adult” but I’m going crazy and I want to throw a hissyfit! but I’m all calm and smiling on the outside!
    Growing up is so overrated!

  246. Ruchita says:

    I prefer small studs or small hoops for earrings.

  247. Molly says:

    I have never liked studs. I feel like they accent how big my ear lobes are because they are so small.

    The best animated movie is Beauty and the Beast. Other contenders are Toy Story, The Prince of Egypt, The Lion King, Aladdin, and Howl’s Moving Castle.

  248. Linda says:

    I love UP!

  249. Stephanie says:

    I usually wear some small hoops in my first piercing and small diamond studs in my second and third piercings. My hair is slightly past shoulder length and it’s so irritating to keep having to pull dangly earrings out of my hair when they get tangled, so I just wear smaller earrings. Easier to keep out of the way.

  250. Tania says:

    A couple of years ago I went to a water park called Schlitterbaun. What I liked about it is that you can picnic there for free AND you can float from one end of the park to the other without any disturbance. Also free tubes and what not. It was cool. It’s expensive plus I got a sunburn but I really liked it!

  251. Casey says:

    I’ve been too lazy for earrings lately but I normally like dangly ones!

  252. Yurianna says:

    I wear small dangly earrings mostly πŸ™‚

  253. Krystle Thomas says:

    I love water parks!

  254. Diane says:

    Don’t know if they still make it, but Victoria’s Secret shampoo in Love Spell smells/smelled awesome. πŸ™‚

  255. Jessica says:

    Nope, I’ve never rode a scooter.

  256. Katherine says:

    Have you read the book (The Time Traveler’s Wife)? It is so so so good.

  257. Aimen says:

    BIOLAGE! Best smelling EVER

  258. Regina Reed says:

    Lately I wear nothing but studs in my ears! I love them! I have short hair and sometimes big earrings feel overwhelming.

  259. Maria Thompson says:

    My favorite animated movie is Wall-e.

  260. Trude says:

    I typically go for studs over big danglies, although I have those around for when I’m feeling fancy. πŸ™‚

  261. Bea says:

    I once had a time travel dream. I went to my childhood neighborhood. I was flying through space and time it was very cool!

  262. Melinda says:

    I’m normally a lover of studs (and in general, tiny jewelry), but I just cut my hair off, so I feel like I need to step up my game and go for some danglies.

  263. This book is my everything, I have read it a billion times and shed a tear each time. This movie was one of the few times that a movie captured what I had imagined when I read the book.

  264. Jennifer says:

    The Madagascar movies are probably my favorite animated films. But I also loved the Shreks.
    Jennifer recently posted … How to Cook Green Beans

  265. Kelly says:

    I wear diamond studs in my 2nd hole, but always medium sized dangles in the bottom. It balances out my cheeks with my short hair!

    My all time favorite animated movie has to be Toy Story. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  267. Ivey G says:

    I love stud earrings.

    I love the scent of WEN Pomegranite! Its my fav!

  270. Crystal Walsh says:

    I usually wear small studs because when my ears were pierced the lady did it unevenly so one side hangs down quite a bit more than the other with dangly earrings. =(

  271. Mirjana says:

    I don’t wear any earrings

  272. Tina says:

    I love Lion King

  273. Cindy says:

  274. Anita says:

    I just received Yield to Love from the MAC Novel Romance. It is absolutely beautiful and gorgeous! Thanks for the swatch.

  275. Andrea Darst says:

    We went up to our friend’s cabin this past weekend, out on the boat, tubing and water skiing – it was fantastic!

  276. Nicky Chandran says:

    Lilo and Stitch is my favorite animated movie atm. I cry a bucket of tears every time I watch it, though I do really really want to watch UP as well.

  277. Tina S. says:

    I lalalove makeup. It’s a fast growing passion of mine. Not into jerewly as much but anything my husband buys me I adore and wear daily. Today it’s my square sapphire earrings.

  278. Tori says:

    I would love to time travel but definitely not without some control. I’d hate to end up running with the dinosaurs!

  279. Rhia says:

    Definitely a stud lover. Simple and work appropriate (I work in healthcare).

  280. Raez says:

    Sweet giveaway! I wish I wore earring more often… I’ve been pierced since birth but alas, I’m always afraid it’ll get caught in my hair!

  281. Alex says:

    I need to stop folling this blog because it makes me buy mass quanities of makeup

  282. Paulomi says:

    I used to be a studs person but now am a total dangly statement earrings girl…have ridden scooters for years during my childhood, they are pretty common in India, where I grew up

  289. Christy Peeples DuBois says:

    I have used a number of shampoos that smell good but absolutely the best smelling I’ve ever used was by Rusk called Pure. It was wonderful. I have to order it online. But I do like Aveda, Pureology, It’s A 10 Lite with volume for their fresh clean scents.

    my favorite animated movie is the emperors new grove πŸ™‚

  291. Ola says:

  293. Deb says:

    I can’t believe it’s almost Fall! And tonight I’m trying to catch up on Hart of Dixie.

    I would love to time travel..to go back and see times especially Queen Elizabeth

  295. Lalaith says:

    The best waterpark I have been, was the waterslide-park in Mallorca (spain). I think the idea of having a park full of slides is brilliant and it was so much fun riding slides for the whole day, loved it to bits!
    But I got also the worst sunburn ever there, that was not so fun, especially since I coudn’t dress myself on the other day and had to stay in the room the whole day πŸ˜€

    I’m wondering, have you tried any good dark black red lipsticks lately? I’ve been dying to get my hands on a good shade and formula of lipstick, I’m even looking for the right shade of neon red lipstick. So far not finding any luck with these two lip shades.
