Win a $50 Sephora e-gift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog

Time is running out!

Christmas is less than two weeks away! I gotta get on that ish. I only have two gifts so far — TWO! — and even those are unwrapped.


Oh, and I had all these grand plans to have everything done by the end of the November.

The end of November!? Ha! Yeah, right. I blame it all on that detour I took to Middle Earth.

Rotten hobbits…

In other news, HAPPY CATURDAY! Your nephew woke me up with a kitty back massage. I was sleeping on my tum, and he just crawled right on top. Made a bunch of biscuits on my shoulder blades. It actually felt pretty good…

Today is all about chores and Christmas for me. I have to make some headway on both, but if I finish early, I’m going to try to squeeze in a trip to HomeGoods (just to look around!).

I hope you’re doing something fun, or at least catching up on your chores, if you have any. Good luck in the giveaway. I’ll talk to you soon.

    Hi Karen,

    I am not even halfway done with Christmas shopping either. Not enough time in the day. Tonight I am going to my husband’s work Christmas dinner at some fancy restaurant. And a BIG YES to a metallic eyeliner!

    You’re seriously obsessed with Home Goods! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love all types of eyeliner! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes. Yes. Can be either. Yes. Currently. No.

    Now on to important matters – I GOT A NEW KITTEN.
    The current cat (Lithium) is less than thrilled, but I have high hopes that they will learn friendship. The new baby cat (12 wks – named Carbon) likes to ride on shoulders and be cuddled. (there is a picture of her tinyness on my instagram @remingtonfae)

  16. Megan says:

    I am almost finished with Christmas shopping, but man the chores I have today. ๐Ÿ™ I like metallic eye liner in theory, but I don’t think it works on me.

    I’ve dated men with beards and let me tell you its not that great. They are scratchy and leave your cheeks red after a makeout session. Not fun. And what is it with men that they always want to tickle you and rub their beards at your face?

  28. Tiffany says:

    metallic eye liner – yes. i love things that pop, and it might seem tacky to some, but i love the glitz and glam some gold eyeliner brings. esp perfect for this holiday season ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Don’t get me started on Christmas shopping, I am WAY behind. Blame it on being on holiday until tomorrow, but I have to get going…

    I am actually married to someone with beard.
    Mr. Loca wore semi-shaved for several years and finally decided to grow a beard this summer.
    He was unsure if he was going to keep it, because it had more grey hair than he had expected, but after one week at work, where he got complimented on it by five different women, he did.
    I like it.

    Not only have I dated someone with a beard, I am married to someone who hates to shave. He only shaves a few times a year, which means he generally has some sort of a beard. I hate it when its a full beard though, prefer just a bit of face hair.

  38. Kirsten says:

    I haven’t really started my holiday shopping

    I have not ridden in a horse-drawn carriage before, but I would love to! ๐Ÿ™‚

  49. Sherry says:

    Oh boy…beards!! Yes, actually three of my boyfriends grew beards at some point. It wasn’t too bad, because they only had it for a short time. Some men really do look great with facial hair, but I really prefer clean shaven. One celebrity who really rocks a beard in my opinion, is Joe Manganiello. It really looks great on him. What a cutie!! Thanks for another giveaway Karen. I know how you feel today. I have a lot to do today to get ready for Xmas. I’m just not feeling motivated though. I need to get act together. Happy Holidays to you!!

  50. CatG says:

  61. Polona says:

    I have such love/hate relations ship with christmas shopping. While I love shopping and wrapping, I find it difficult to pick things for others… not to expensive, something that they’ll use and remotely like. Usually I end with some form of chocolate haha ๐Ÿ˜‰

  62. Suzanne C says:

    I paint other people’s toenails quite often- I have two nieces!

  63. Natasha says:

  72. Amoure says:

    Happy Saturday Karen,

    I’m about done w/ my holiday/Christmas shopping just want to gather some stocking stuffers (mainly for myself). So since it’s raining here in Arizona I’ll be doing some much needed dusting, and mopping just to prep the house. I haven’t even bought the tree yet so i’m really behind schedule.
    Now for the question of my choice: I think Christmas nail art is very trendy, but then I like to dress my nails for all of the holidays. This year I’ll probably go w/ the traditional green/red combo with some silver glitter. Then of course it’s not nail art w/o decals, so I’ll be adding some festive: Santas, Snowmen and such.

  73. Jessica says:

    My fiancรฉ has a beard and I love it! I told him to grow it in even more. I bought him a bunch of grooming products for Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

  82. BlackAsphodel says:

    I have rarely painted my own toe nails, let alone anyone else’s.

  83. Jan says:

    Metallic eyeliner: yes! yes! yes!

  86. Michelle says:

    Husband has a serious beard going on at least once a month. I can’t believe how much different he looks with & without it! I wish there were some lady equivalent to change up our looks. Shame guys get to have all the facial hair fun (is that creepy? oh well.). ๐Ÿ™‚

    good prompts this time, so i choose to do more than one:
    -metallic eyeliner is a yes, for nighttime/party, this time of year is perfect. but daytime/office, definitely not!
    -i have ridden in a horse-drawn carriage, around downtown nashville on a gorgeous summer night several years ago. loved it!
    -holiday nail art ROCKS!
    -i have painted my little girl’s toenails and also my mother’s. don’t think i could do anyone other than that, though.

    ALSO, although i don’t have many to buy for, so far i all of the gift shopping i have done has been ENTIRELY online! i was sick over thanksgiving and black friday and so missed going out for the sales for the first time in my adult life – but i discovered that online sales are just as good – and my better to be at home in warm PJs with hot cocoa than standing in line out in the cold!

    Christmas-themed nail art: Tacky.
    Have you dated someone with a beard?: I date women.

  102. Suzanne Giroux says:

    I am still working on my shopping and will be doing some next week in Calgary. The rest of the shopping will be done online.

  103. sarah thompson says:

    I think some Christmas nail art can look nice if its classy looking but I don’t care for the childish looking designs. Maybe just Christmassy colors, light glitter something like that. Thanks for giveaway and happy holidays!

  104. B says:

    Love your blog Karen! I’m actually all done my Christmas shopping, and written about a quarter of my Christmas cards as well! (all the ones that had to be mailed) I’ve been rocking Christmas colours on my nails for the past few weeks, but nothing overt. Unfortunately my hands are not steady enough to do nail art ๐Ÿ™

  109. Una says:

    Metallic eyeliner – yes for holidays and parties!

  115. andrea murdock says:

    Yes to metallic if it is bronze or rose gold. Not sure about the rest. Not done my shopping either *sigh*

    I’ve never dated anyone with a beard and I’ve never liked them before but lately I’m finding them quite sexy ๐Ÿ™‚

  117. alice says:

    Big YES on holiday mani/pedis. Life is too short not to have fun. And another yes on painting someone else’s toes, because how else are you going to get your toes painted?

    I paint my 7 year old daughter’s toes every 2 weeks!

    Metallic eyeliner is a “yes,” all year round.

  122. Lisa Foster says:

    I find most Christmas themed nail art tacky, especially if it is too cutesy or cartoonish. I do like more “winter” themed nail art that is more subtle, like starts or icicles.

    Metallic eyeliner: yes
    Have you ever ridden in a horse-drawn carriage? yes
    Christmas-themed nail art: trendy or tacky? trendy but not for me per se

    Have you dated someone with a beard? Egads no! I’m a gal for a clean-shaven guy. Can’t wait for this beard insanity to be over.
    Have you ever painted anyoneโ€™s toenails other than your own? Yes, my mom’s I think, when I was little. And, I think I tried a cat or two when I was little, too.

    Yes. It has a certain pop and pizazz.

    Have you ever ridden in a horse-drawn carriage?


    Christmas-themed nail art: trendy or tacky?

    It depends on how it’s done.

    Do you like fruit with your cereal?


    Have you dated someone with a beard?

    .. and married him.

    You’ve started a lemming fire for that new nars eyeshadow palette Karen!

  147. Johnna Quick Owens says:

    I love to add some zip to my manicure with a little nod to the holiday. Now, I’m not the person who has cutesy nail wraps and stickers and bling hanging off my nails for every holiday, but I can say that I always wear a glittery Christmas red shade on Christmas day, with gold accents, and that is the only time of year I do it! But when it comes to holiday manicures, my most colorful is Halloween, and I usually do something themed all month long, different every few days. That is my favorite holiday anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I saw The Imitation Game and recommend seeing the movie!

    I rode in a horse-drawn carriage a few years ago when I was in Iran. It was part of the historical attraction of the place I was visiting!

    Metallic eyeliner? Yes! I think it looks great as long as it is not over done.

  158. Jennifer says:

    My hubs has had a beard several times. I HATE when he shaves it off since he doesn’t tell me ahead of time. It takes a while to get used to his bare face and sometimes I feel like I’m with a stranger.

  159. MelodyJ says:

My two daughters and I were on a cruise 2 or 3 years ago during spring break and we were looking for the post office when we went ashore in Mexico and since it was a gorgeous day, and all the taxis were taken, we rode in a horse drawn carriage down town to the post office and we were able to see so much more than if we had taken an ordinary taxi.

    My boyfriend has had a beard as long as I’ve known him ๐Ÿ™‚ He says it’s because he has a birthmark under his sideburns, and doesn’t want to just keep the sideburns (who wouldn’t? ;P) but I think there’s a healthy component for disliking shaving in there, haha. But I always think of this image when people talk of his beard, because he also has tattoos:

    Hi Karen!

    Usually, Christmas-themed nails seem tacky to me, but I recently fell and broke my ankle, so I’ve been thinking about giving my poor toes some holiday cheer to pass the time! I think I’ll go for an understated red and gold glitter, however- no Santas or snowflakes for this girl!
