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

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun

Win a $50 Sephora e-gift card

Heh! Guess who got out of seeing Fury last night. ๐Ÿ™‚


Not that I’m totally against seeing it, mind you. I like Mr. Pitt, but I wasn’t in the mood for a heavy movie with a bunch of dudes.

Instead, I experienced the glory that is The Cheesecake Factory Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake Pie. Picture it: a pecan pie with a pumpkin cheesecake layered on top of it and two huge dollops of whipped cream on the side…


After that we just came home, and I took a really long shower and did a body scrub and a hair mask. Then we watched some TV before bed.

Today I have half-marathon final details to attend to, like I have to paint my nails and straighten my hair, because I’ve discovered that I like running with straight hair. And I have to finalize my music playlist. I know this: the last three miles will be powered by Bloc Party.

Have a great weekend, my friend, and good luck in the giveaway. Your nephew says “mroww!”

  1. Nhu Le says:

    So I’ve been desperately trying to avoid buying Christmas make-up products, because I REALLY don’t need more – but that’s kind of hard if you frequent beauty products at this time of the year. I rationalize it by saying that it fulfills my eyelust without me having to fork over any cash, but I end up finding all these OTHER products I really want too. Ah, the pain.

    Anyway, my initials are actually pretty darn terrible. QNNL. Like, really, mom, dad? Also, the entirety of the name is unpronouncable if you speak English. But of course I love my heritage, so ultimately can’t complain too much.


  2. Remi says:

    Sometimes I think I should go into the beauty supply industry to make boutique shampoos, conditioners, and glazes for those who have non-traditional hair colors..

    But then I rationalize that the demand probably isn’t very strong in the demographic that can afford it, because most 30somethings don’t rock purple hair. *foreveralone*

  3. Catherine Crain says:

    My initials are “CTC” although I get any of my monogrammed things to be “CAT”. That way, i can use them even after I get married. Plus, I’m a cat lady myself ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Agata says:

    My initials are AKP. Happy Saturday from not so happy Agata.

    1. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being hairless and 10 being full-on Sasquatch, how hairy are you right now?

    Probably about a 2 or a 3. I keep my hair in a short pixie, and I keep on top of the rest of the body fluff.

    2. Whoโ€™s the tallest person you know?

    My friend A, who’s about… 6’3 or 6’4.

    3. When was the last time you made a toast, and what was it for?

    This morning, to my cat, as recognition of him being such a sweetheart and being extra cuddly after I had a bad day yesterday.

    4. What are your initials? (Mine are KTAM.)

    JLCN. Or, if we’re going by what my birth mum wanted to name me, BLMK.

    5. Do you prefer to blend in or stand out?

    Depends. Sometimes I want to blend in, and sometimes I want to stand out. Currently it’s stand out, I just started a new job and although I’m doing relatively well (been promoted twice and passed the probation period) I’d like to do more.

    6. What do you want? Like really want?

    To do my best and look my best while doing it. Also, if I could save all the animals, that would be awesome as well.

    On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being hairless and 10 being full-on Sasquatch, how hairy are you right now?

    Before I checked up on your blog today I waxed most of my body! So I am probably a 3 on your scale (Only like my head hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes, etc are still hairy) What about you Karen? ๐Ÿ™‚

  88. maria therese says:

So now I’m really really crossing my fingers that Sephora keep in stock The Too faced Everything nice set for another 2,5 weeks until I get payed at work because or else I WILL CRY!!! And the melted set from toofaced is allready sold out so I am really scared for real!!

  94. Kay Easson says:

    What I really, really want is good health for my husband and myself. We both retired from teaching and planned to travel, but we both got sick and have been grounded. I really want my husband to regain his health; he was diagnosed with cancer. Now, he is taking a new drug, the same one Valerie Harper is taking, and he is doing well. I hope he continues to be “stable,” as his doctor calls it.

  95. Kay Easson says:

    October is my birthday month, and I have been buying myself presents–Holiday makeup. I am a real sucker for the great packaging the companies use for their Holiday lines. My last purchase was the MakeupForever, mini makeup case with 12 shadows. The case is so cute and the shadows are great colors. It is available at Sephora. Check it out.

  96. Kay Easson says:

    My second wish is that there will be no more homeless animals. I wish good homes for each and every animal. I wish I could adopt homeless animals, but I have 3 dogs already. Keeping 3 in food and in health is quite an expense. But, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  136. Abby says:

    oOOo great questions! It’s hard for me to pick just one question to answer, so I’m going to pick a few that I like.

    First of all, I’m Asian so I’m not very hairy. My friends are jealous that I don’t shave my legs at all, because I don’t have any hair to shave! So I guess I’m a 1 on the scale.
    Tallest person I know is my brother-in-law, he’s 6’7″ and only 16yrs old!!
    Oh gosh the last time I made a toast is probably 6-12 months ago?? I don’t or anyone in my household eats much toast.
    My initials are ALN, but my maiden name, my initials were ALF, which I thought was cool, because of the furry alien, ALF!lol
    I’m in between when it comes to blending in and standing out. I like to stand out, but not too overly out there! I do like to blend in, but not to the point i look like a wallflower..lol
    What I do I want?? Hmm..win the lottery!!lol But realistically I guess just continue being happy and not have too many hardships in life….

  137. Sofia says:

    I’m about a 4 on the hairy scale, I’m not a so fluffy girl. Luckily most of my hair grows in my head and brows, so when it comes to the rest of my body I don’t have to shave much!

  138. Suzanne C says:

    Want I reeeaaallly want is just a good night’s sleep. I haven’t had one in months.

  139. AAAHAHAHAHAHA! I spent a little extra time in the bathroom a few days ago, so I guess I’m only at about a 3 on the sasquatch scale! Thanks for the chuckle!

    My parents were at an event and met a man who is 6’9″. He’s running for a position in November’s state election, and the running joke in his political commercial on TV is about him helping people grab things because he’s so tall (like a cat from a tree).

  165. Stephanie says:

    I made a toast at my sister’s wedding a few years ago – I was a nervous wreck!

  166. Taylor says:

    My initials are TSX, just like the car. The tallest person I know is my uncle, who is 83 and, although I could swear that he’s 8 feet tall, is still the very impressive 6’5″.

  167. Katie F says:

    I have an alarming number of very tall friends (6’2″ and up), but a guy who lived in my college dorm was 6’8″, which I think is the tallest of anyone I personally know. He once thought it would be funny to sneak up behind me and then grab me by the ankles and hold me upside down. He did not do that again after I said some choice words about it. I may only be 5’1″, but I can be very scary when I’m mad (the years of martial arts training probably don’t hurt either).

    On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being hairless and 10 being full-on Sasquatch, how hairy are you right now? Probably around a 6… And I just can’t muster up a f*** to give about it haha.
    Whoโ€™s the tallest person you know? One of my old college buddies, who is EASILY 6’6″. I always feel miniature next to her!
    When was the last time you made a toast, and what was it for? Feels egotistical, but I feel like it was the night before my college graduation ๐Ÿ™‚
    What are your initials? (Mine are KTAM.) ERP
    Do you prefer to blend in or stand out? Stand out. I feel overlooked if I blend in
    What do you want? Like really want? To be in control of my life.

    Hi Karen, I came to wish you good luck for your half marathon but I think it may have already started (not sure with the time difference). I think it’s really great that you decided you wanted to do it, trained for it, and did it! I was a runner for a couple of years but sadly I have let myself get out of shape and I am just picking it back up again, but you have been an inspiration to me.
