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

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun

A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway

A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway


Used to be that my idea of a rollickin’ Friday night was to leave the house at 10 with Jen, and dance till the wee hours of the morning at our favorite drum ‘n’ bass place in the city. Right before the sun would rise, we’d be driving back home over the bridge to the East Bay.

Now, I’m usually in my PJs by 10, LOL!

It’s the job… Mind you, I love being Tabs’ full-time assistant, but damn, the hours are crazy. By the time Friday night rolls around, all I want to do is relax.

Stopping by the Sephora down the street from my house (Novato Vintage Oaks) is one of my favorite ways to unwind. It’s my favorite beauty playground. I’ll sniff some perfumes, maybe spritz a scent on my wrist, cover my forearm with swatches, and maybe buy something new if it really strikes my fancy.

Last night I spent a while looking at brow pencils because Raul (the really annoying bald spot on my left brow) has been stressing me out again (we go through these phases), and a stick of Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil in Deep Brown came home with me.

If you like cruising the aisles at Sephora as much as I do, guess what?

It’s giveaway time. πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend, babe. I hope we bump into each other on Twitter or Facebook today.

    I travel by myself for work a lot but I definitely prefer personal travel with friends and family! πŸ™‚

  2. Elizabeth says:

    In my day to day job, I don’t get dressed up (I work at a licensed coffee shop in a retail store). However, two nights a week I teach piano and I’m told to dress as if I were going to church. Although I personally don’t, this is when I get to wear all the pretty dresses I won with subtle looking make up. I go to school dressed like this as well, and I’m one of the best dressed on campus. πŸ™‚

  3. Victoria says:

    I hear Modern Family playing in the background πŸ™‚

  4. Olivia K says:

    I hear the cooking channel and youtube makeup tutorials in the background!

  5. Agata says:

    When I go to Poland I travel by myself, which I hate cause it’s a very long flight!

    If I won the Sephora gift card, it’d be awesome. I could get the Hourglass powder trio and something for my brows maybe! Happy weekend to you, El Hub and Mr Tabs!

  6. Tasnia says:

    I’ve got the Ellen Show on the backgroun

  7. Vanessa says:

    I have Pitch Perfect on in the background. I know it’s a completely silly movie but it cracks me up every time I watch it.

  8. Laurinha says:

    Hi Karen!
    The nearest Sephora is 75 miles away from home… too far for an evening ride……

  9. Casey says:

  14. camille says:

    Hello! I usually do things by myself (I’m used to it. Kinda relaxing…). My last trip home was solo due to The Man being on the east coast for work. And I usually fly to Colorado to visit my sister and her monSTARS. As for a leisure trip…..I don’t think I’ve traveled solo for those; I usually have a traveling buddy. πŸ™‚

  15. Denise says:

    It’s pouring out so I’m hearing the rain outside my window, and Love Actually is on tv. Whenever that movie is on I just can’t pass it by. It just draws me in every time.

  16. Lisa Brown says:

    I have never traveled by myself

  17. Kim says:

    Woo it’s the weekend!

  19. Alix says:

    Slept nine hours last night!

    Slept 6 hours last night, had a double dinner date with some friends and havent seen them in forever! We were at the restaurant for 3 hours!

  27. Tiffany says:

    Josie Maran’s SPF 40 moisturizer is the best sunscreen ever!

  28. Cassia says:

    Is 44 too old to start getting excited about make-up? I hope not! I’ve been taking the time to do the basics (a bit of concealer, blush, mascara, lips), and my husband of 20 years is taking notice. Keep the compliments coming, honey!

  29. Danielle says:

    Right now the sound I hear is the washer and dryer. Nothing like spending a Saturday doing laundry!

  30. Katie F says:

    I have been having terrible insomnia lately — I slept maybe 4-5 hours last night. πŸ™ First I couldn’t fall asleep, then I kept waking up!

    I love traveling by myself! I do it a lot for research and conferences, but I also kind of like to vacation by myself, so I can just do whatever I want on my own schedule. A couple years ago I took a long weekend in Toronto by myself, it was so cool. I’d love to do it again, maybe go to Puerto Rico this time for some beach fun!

  31. Erin says:

    In the background, I hear the song Wheel of Fortune by Ace of Base. I am massively obsessed with the makeup and hair of the blonde girl (she has awesome bangs.. like seriously..) and i love 90’s music. If I won the sephora gift card I would use it to buy the sephora fantasy lip gloss set, and the tarte thoughtful treasures set. My favorite natural brand is a tossup between tarte and josie maran.

  32. Kelsey says:

    I’m impressed by anyone who can hold out on getting in their pajamas until ten. I’m usually in them by eight.

  33. Pam says:

    One of these days I will win! πŸ™‚

  34. Icequeen81 says:

  35. Jennifer says:

    My favourite natural beauty brand is RMS Beauty! I’m patiently waiting for their 00 un-coverup because I’m obscenely pale. And I always shower before bed. πŸ™‚

  36. Nisa says:

    I feel depressed tonight. Just this afternoon I was excited about the possibility about getting some new things….then it all changed.

    Mood swings suck πŸ™

    I listened to some songs by Frou Frou to cheer myself up and painted my nails.

  37. I never travel by myself. I don’t think I could do it either. I’d feel lonely. And helpless, lol.

  56. Lynn says:

  60. Stephanie says:

    Purchased a couple of Rimmel London Lip Lacquer yesterday and while the colors were super pretty, one of the appicators broke and I had to run out this AM to exchange it. I just really loathe the fact that I have to run back to the store for reasons like that or products that were already open. Ugh!! :[

  61. Ralitza says:

    I always shower before going to bed. I do relax and leave all that happened during the day behind…or at least I try to. πŸ™‚

    I think I slept about 8 hours last night. Anything more and I feel groggy.

  98. Farhana says:

    Why, oh why, did I not appreciate being able to travel alone when I still could? I used to travel on my own to see friends and family all the time. But not since I got married nearly 8 years ago. Maybe it’s time to start it up again and leave my 4-year old son at home with the hubby for a few days! πŸ˜‰

  108. amacke says:

    I prefer traveling alone, but I don’t want to be alone at my destination!

  110. Gabi says:

    Last night I probably only got about 3 hours of sleep. It was one of those nights where I just could not fall asleep. God, how I hate those nights.

  111. MK says:

    I love traveling by myself! Sometimes a weekend away, alone, is the best way to relax πŸ™‚

  112. CE says:

  130. Cyan K. says:

    I actually hate to travel alone. I don’t mind flying alone (that’s kind of easier), but when I travel to another country, I just find it easier to travel with a group or other people where the trip has already been planned out. Less stress about the day-to-day activities; then I can just go along with whatever was already planned.

  131. Kay says:

    Right now I hear: the sound my computer makes, the a/c, the sound of me chewing candy corn, and the traffic outside my house.

  132. Tara says:

    I slept 8+ last night. (Thank you pain meds and muscle relaxer)!

  133. MLV says:

  135. Rebecca Cash says:

    I hear my 3 year old daughter spelling her name in sing-song

  137. Amy says:

    I’m feeling a lot of appreciation for my significant other lately.

    I thought you might appreciate this….you posted about the Sonia Kashuk Roll Up Valet makeup bag on Sept. 6. I became a little bit obsessed with having it, but it’s been sold out at all of the Targets within a 50 mile radius and is also sold out online. I discovered that a Target in Omaha had one, so my best friend from high school (who is still my best friend after 25 years) went and got it for me and mailed to me! I LOVE IT! Thank for the recommendation!

  146. Katherine says:

    I really like Bite Beauty – they make such great products!

    I find myself traveling alone almost of half of the time I travel, though I am usually meeting someone at my destination. The worst part about traveling alone is not having the husband to help with my luggage!!

  172. kiran says:

    Slept 6 hrs last night. Not enuf πŸ™

  173. ReneeP says:

    The sounds I hear right now are my hubby and 4yo son playing Mario Bros on the Wii, yelling at the TV like they are watching a football game…. cuteness all the way

  174. Cristen says:

    I prefer to shower at night because I like going to bed feeling clean however every once while in a while I like to take a shower in the morning, especially if I have an early start, because I find it wakes me up a little bit.

  175. Alex says:

    I slept 8 hours last night!

  176. Mardi says:

    Right now I can hear wind in the trees, birds chirping, my cat yelling his head off for some reason and my dog huffing in her sleep. It’s a peaceful spring Sunday afternoon here in Australia and daylight saving time started last night so it’s my favourite time of year.

  180. Polly says:

    I love my new Lancome WineParty lipstick!

  181. Laney says:

    I always shower at night. It’s just so convenient for me to put my damp hair up in a bun or braid it, then wake up in the morning with completely dry smooth waves.

  182. Janice Cooper says:

    I never travel by myself. The only time I have is for work. I also like to shower in the morning to wake me up.

  195. christine says:

    My favorite natural brand is Acure Organics. Ahh, I totally want the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette!!!

  196. virginie says:

    Sleeping?! What is sleeping? 2 kids that request the absolute necessity to sleep in your bed, then it makes 2 parents deprived of sleep, yes because those are not babies anymore, 5 and 2 year old’s feets going into my face or my back, is not the best way of sleeping!

    I quite frequently travel by myself. I end up flying by myself more often than not when I go to visit my family in Maui. I also used to take the train a lot in college to go see my then boyfriend, now husband. There are definitely pros and cons to traveling by yourself. You can go at your own pace, but then you have to take all your luggage with you when you go to the bathroom or get food.

  233. Suzi says:

    Even though I moved from the north bay to the east bay two years ago, I still make a point of stopping by the Novato Sephora when I’m driving north. I like the staff there (some have been there a long time!) and it always feels more relaxed than Emeryville or SF. Maybe I’ll run into you one day and say “hi”.

    Yaay! Give away time!
    I only dress up every now and again. When I go out with my hubby, out with friends or when I feel like spending quite some time on me. But I find it hard to dress up often though, I’ve got 2 kids and hubster is away for work a lot. But it’s okay, because right now, I can hear our youngest snore peacefully πŸ™‚

  247. Maggie Morris says:

    I always shower before bed! The thought of waking up earlier than I absolutely have to to take a shower and blow dry my hair makes me crazy. Plus, I don’t like the idea of laying in bed with all of the dirt from the day still on me.

  248. Lori P says:

    I do take showers before bed (especially during the work week). It’s a great way to relax after a stressful, busy day.

    I have travelled alone, sort of. When I studied abroad in Florence, Italy, I went with a group of people I didn’t know at all to Munich. And I spent a couple days out of a week in Paris with my friends traveling around the city by myself! I like to spend a couple days alone, but I don’t know if I can do extended periods, beyond a weekend, traveling alone.

    I like to take a warm bath at bedtime, slather on the serum on my face, and have my cat at my feet, so I can sleep.

  257. glitzXglam says:

    I dress up all the time, for everything, for nothing. For example, I’m adorning a bright pink, blue and turquoise cut-crease eye, and rocking a lacy number, long pearls, sparkly earrings and some *high* heels. And i’m just chilling around the house! It’s gloomy outside…rain, rain, go away.. Excuse me, that reminds me, it’s hairspray time! <3

I wear yoga pants and a t-shirt to my current part-time job, so there’s no looking dressy there. My go-to is a black maxi skirt, button up chambray top, sheer red lips, and light cat-eye liner. I also like to rocking the leggings and an oversized top when I’m at home, though πŸ˜‰

  283. Linda says:

    I usually travel by myself. It’s nice to not have to coordinate schedules with people to make sure we can both get the same days off (I tend to be a spur-of-the-moment kind of traveller). Plus, I wind up doing what I want to do (or sleep in). I think not having a companion makes me come out of my shell a little more and interact with the locals and if I’m not chatting with the person next to me, I can observe more as I walk around.

    I always shower before bed mostly because I’m too lazy to get up any earlier than I have to in the mornings.

  347. Alice Beerland says:

    I have never traveled by myself!! And I have never drunk a coffee by myself…

  348. fernanyi says:

    I’m hearing the sound of my computer, I think thats the fan cooling it down or something… But isn’t that annoying? Don’t you wish machine some times would be just a bit more silence, I mean If since and technology are so advance that they can make you see what’s going on in the other part of the world I think They should be able to make machine shut up for a little. I know a little bit random but you asked!!!! hahahah Hugs

  349. Darice Rene says:

    I’m excited about the Sephora gift card because I am such a novice – I’m always intimidated by that place.

  350. Morgan says:

    I have a fancy schmancy Razer mouse (it has five million extra buttons on it), because I game a lot. I absolutely LOATHE trackball mice!

  351. Lan says:

    I successfully cooked a rice omelet today. You can’t understand the accomplishment of this, I have no predilection towards cooking, AT ALL…

  352. Majick says:

    My husband’s ex-girlfriend calls him once or twice a year,”is this a bad time? are you still married? hows that working out for ya?”
    Um, we’ve been married 23 years now, most of them happy. You mentioned mouse or trackball? how about SCRATCHING POST?
    ROFLMAO – I am really thankful that this is still funny.

  353. Kathleen C. says:

    I’m loving this cloudy weather here in Southern California! The weekend was way too hot!

  354. varsha says:

    Been not sleeping well lately..not sure if its the mattress or somethinng else..am perpetually tired..:(

  355. Janet says:

    I’ve never traveled by myself, but I don’t think it would be so bad!

  356. Dee (and Maitai) says:

    I don’t love traveling by myself, but I do it a lot to visit my family that’s all over the place. Right now my boyfriend and I are stopped at a little town in Oregon because his car broke down, so this time I definitely wish I traveled alone on this trip! We did finally find a little motel and I’m happy to have at least gotten 9 hours of sleep.

  357. Barbara says:

    I am a horrible sleeper, and it’s only getting worse as I get older. No trouble falling asleep, it’s waking up and then not being able to fall back asleep that’s the problem. If I sleep more than 5 hours straight that’s a good night for me!

  358. Ann says:

    i slept 7 hours last night

  359. Lydia says:

    Natural brands? Well, Burt’s Bees and Yes To are pretty cool. I haven’t tried too many natural cosmetics, though. Mostly just bath/body & lip balms.

  360. Tracey says:

    Do you like to take a shower before bed? Sadly No because my hair is so thick that it will not dry completely if I go to bed within an hour of taking a shower πŸ™ I do love the feeling of being clean and have nice shaved legs before bed but half the time I forget to wear a shower cap haha

  361. Kelsie Cook says:

    Have you tried the Laura Mercier brow pencils? I used to use those religiously before I moved over to light-brown eyeshadow shades for filling in my eyes instead.

  362. Ambritt G says:

    I really like the brand burt’s bees! I have about 7 of there chapsticks and their body butter is really nice and it doesn’t irritate my skin.

  363. myriam says:

    Hey Karen!
    I prefer to shower in the mournings but sometimes I’ll treat myself :p and wash before bed too.

    I love to dress up every chance I get!

  364. Erin says:

    Not sure if they are ‘natural’, but I love Alba Botanicals and Weleda skin products! Weleda ‘skin food’ smells so good it’s unreal.

  365. Elizabeth Lau says:

    Mouse always. I hate trackballs not user friendly at all

  366. Jessica Keane says:

    My fave natural beauty product is coconut oil.

  367. Vanessa w says:

    I bought the origins clear improvement charcoal mask at sephora the other day. Absolutely love it!

  368. Anna says:

    I slept a total of 3 hours last night! A high fever and just overall feelings of grossness will do that to you :/

  369. Kathy Hanley says:

    Right now all I hear is the wind blowing as we have a tornado watch at the Jersey Shore!

  370. Allison says:

    It is beautiful outside, can’t wait to break out fall clothes!

  371. Alix says:

    I don’t always dress up, but I always like to look presentable. I’ve been running into a lot of people from my past lately, and I’m always relieved that I made myself presentable that day πŸ™‚

  372. Crystal says:

    Today was probably one of the worst days I’ve had in a while. I slept for over 12 hours due to pounding migraine, and it has yet to say goodbye. Every time I move my head starts pounding and I just wish I could crawl back in my bed.

  373. Leah says:

    thank you for the great giveaway!
    while traveling with another is great, I love traveling by myself as that means I can choose what I want to do and when!

  374. Makyla says:

    Hey Karen! I usually only dress up when I have something to do, but I’m trying to make more of an effort! And I don’t mind taking a shower before bed, especially when I remember to put my hair up for one of those over-night hair styling tricks! I am not a morning person, so this setup saves so much time! Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

  375. Courtney says:

    Your cat is adorable! I’m sure she doesn’t have the bad habit my cat does, she pees on my stove when she is mad at me! And you usually can’t tell until you turn it on to cook something, and then it smells like burning cat urine!! Gross!

  376. Rachel says:

    I sleep between 7-9 hours, it’s gotten a lot better since I cut soda out of my diet!

  377. meg says:

    barely even 7 hours of sleep *cries*

  378. Jane says:

    I usually sleep for 6 hours a night, for some reason I have a hard time sleeping past 7am. Who knows, if I slept more, maybe I wouldn’t be needing so much from Sephora πŸ˜‰

  379. Melissa says:

    I wore a cute bracelet today, and I NEVER wear bracelets! Might try to do it more often.

  380. Melody says:

    I only slept 5 hrs last night πŸ™ gotta get up early for lecture.

  381. Krista says:

    I’m watching Rules of Engagement, so that’s what I hear right now.

  382. Tiffani says:

    I love Baking Soda. Use it as a facial scrub, mouthwash, toothpaste and clarifying hair shampoo. I also use it in my washing machine to soften the horrible hard water we have in my area.

  383. brittany says:

    im at 115 points id love to get a BI gift!!

  384. Thomas Murphy says:

    thanks for the giveaway!

  385. Melanie Montgomery says:

    I’ve traveled by myself before. And I’m going to NYC in Nov.

  386. I often times travel by myself and not just by flight even road trips I take by myself. I am a single woman and I don’t have a large circle of friends so if i wanna go somewhere I do so without hesitation even if it means im solo.

  387. brittany burleson says:

    the kitty on the bottom of this page is really cute!!!

  388. Sunandha says:

    In 2 weeks time I have to travel alone with my 2 yr old to India. I have already starting to panic about it,

  389. Molly says:

    Right now I hear Tegan and Sara, wonderful sounds πŸ™‚

  390. Shani says:

    I HATE traveling by myself. But I love buying makeup.

  391. jenny nicole says:

    currently at school freezing my bottom off.

  392. Jen says:

    I love showering at night – I prefer getting into my comfy bed nice and clean and it’s better for my hair the next day πŸ™‚ I’m sampling Sephora’s anti- shine primer and so far it rocks!

  393. Fay. H. says:

    Had too much coffee. Now has coffee jitter

  394. chibicheeks says:

    I usually shower in the morning, mostly because I’m too lazy to dry my hair before bed

  397. Sarah r says:

    I hate traveling by myself

  398. rosie says:

    I just came back from a weekend by myself. One of my high school girlfriends got married, so I took a trip back home. Went dancing until 2:30 in the morning the night before the wedding! Then on the wedding day, the bride and groom had a small gathering at her mom’s house for a few special people who live far away. (They were leaving on their honeymoon a week after the wedding) We had such a great time, drinking wine and reminiscing. Then on Sunday I got to spend the day with my parents and nephews and their babies. It was such a fun time!

  399. lizr says:

    No never travel alone,have to take a friend coz if I get lost at least I wont be alone…if I won this giftcard I would buy face serum really need it.

  400. Katie M says:

    I like to travel by myself- it gives me time to read, get some work done and be in charge of my own schedule. My in-laws are the type who need to get to the airport 4 hours before!! I get there 30 minutes before because I am a procrastinator.

  401. Tiffany says:

    Mouse! I hate trackballs, they feel so weird. I used to have one at work and I never got accustomed to using it.

  402. Apryl says:

    I’ve never traveled alone, in fact I just flew for the first time last week to go on my honeymoon to the Dominican Republic! Hope I win the ecard πŸ™‚

  403. Tzivi says:

    I only slept about 4 hours last night πŸ™

  404. Michelle says:

    I used to travel by myself when I was much younger but I’ve lost my sense of adventure in my old age πŸ™

  405. Vanassa says:

    I love to shower before going to bed!

  406. Arnique says:

    Always wonderful to travel on my own for the first two weeks, after that I’m dying to talk to people!

  407. Clemence says:

    I got 7 hours of sleep last night!

  408. Candace says:

    I’ve been watching a lot of TV shows from the beginning the past few months – went through all of The Office, Nashville, Scandal, and some others, and now I’m on 30 Rock! Loving them all so far πŸ™‚

  409. yelena says:

    i’m not hearing anything right now except for my typing on the key board but as soon as i’m done here, i’m going to be watching (and hearing) some downton abbey πŸ˜€

  410. Loren says:

    Favourite natural brand, Tarte, for those dang blushes!

  411. Jaleesa says:

    Just made a mistake and posted my answer as a reply to someone else’s answer. But anyways I slept 9 hours last night and could use some more sleep πŸ™‚
