A Slightly Nervous Makeup and Beauty Blogger

Published in: Just For Fun

What it do, ladies? Right now Tabs, El Hub and I are watching the news and waiting to find out if a tsunami will hit Hawaii (ETA soon).


Yes, that felt about as strange to type as it probably was to read.

Doing my best not to worry, but I am a little nervous… I’m browsing the web to keep my mind occupied. Care to keep me company?

UPDATE 2:32PM PST: It looks like Hawaii has been lucky so far. The first waves generated by the earthquake have passed through the Hawaiian Islands with no signs of damage. Still watching…

    Hope your family is ok Karen. My thoughts are with you.

  2. Kim says:

    Hope things don’t get ugly in Hawaii! I think I saw somewhere that it was supposed to hit around 4pm, but I didn’t see if it meant 4 our time (central) or 4pm Hawaii time! 🙁

  3. Niki says:

    I’ve been wondering about you and yours. Hope everything is well.

    Hope all are okay in Hawaii… thankfully there’s been a few hours’ warning, so people can evacuate/prepare. Have you seen pix of the quake in Chile? OMG. Anyway, good thoughts to you and yours. And Tabs, of course.

  5. Solé says:

    I’m all too familiar with that waiting feeling right now. We’re still waiting to hear from half our family in Santiago. Since power lines, phone lines, and roads are still out, our other relatives in Santiago haven’t even been able to reach them yet. 🙁

    • Karen says:

      Hi Sole,

      So scary. I’ve got you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. I hope they’re all okay.

      • Solé says:

        Thanks, Karen. You are too sweet. We finally found out about our relatives about two hours ago, and they are all safe and well. We still haven’t been able to talk to them because the phone lines are still down, but the family members we’ve been in contact with were finally able to get a hold of them and reported back to us that everyone is okay. It’s been a loooong day, but at least we finally got some good news. Good news with the cancellation of the HI tsunami warning as well. 🙂

    I’m glued to the tv too worried about ohana. Decided that this was a special occasion worthy of Chanel Legende. You know what? I don’t love it! There. I’ve said it. It kind of clumps up and I’ve had to reach for lip balm because it seems to be drying my lips rather than moisturizing them. Unless it gets better as I wear it the rest of today and tomorrow, it is going back to Nordstrom.

  7. Vanessa H says:

    I’m praying for everyone affected by this earthquake, I hope everything is ok with your family too!

    Thank you, ladies. It looks like Hawaii has escaped the worst of it so far. Hope it stays that way.

  13. Beth says:

    I hope your family are doing okay. I can’t imagine the anxiety you must all be feeling so you’re in my thoughts.

    P.S. Those platforms are FABULOUS! I’m a little late in on the platform trend, but the more I’m seeing the more I want!

    you are from hawaii? cool, me too! ! 😀

  19. Vonvon says:

    Glad to hear that the warning in Hawaii has been lifted. When I heard the news last night, I even told my sis who is living by the coast in East Malaysia, not to go to the beach today (it’s Sunday over here already). Probably I got a bit too worried but seeing the map on CNN….it was like everything facing the Pacific could be at risk at that moment.

    On another note, 100% Pure came up with their makeup line! Have you tried them, Karen?

  20. Fie says:

    I heard about the warnings yesterday night (it’s Sunday here already) and it was kinda scary since most of our neighbouring countries (I’m in Peninsular Malaysia) were on alert. I pray that they’re okay.

    Thank goodness your family is okay. Here’s to hoping it’ll stay that way too. 🙂

    p/s: I’m beginning to love platforms, but I was never a heels type of girl..I still love my flipflops

  21. gn. says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Let’s all hope that it’ll bypass Hawaii.

    On the other hand, the miniature NYC creeped me out a bit. Tilt-Shift photography does that to me. Heehee.

  22. Tiffany says:

    Hey Karen, I’m so glad everything turn out okay in HI 🙂

    Also, LOVE the shoes int he pic! So so cute!

  23. Saku says:

    Glad your okay and the people in Hawaii. That earthquake in Chile was a bad one. Hope they get the help they need also.

  24. Glosslizard says:

    Holy cow! I was out all day with friends yesterday and got home really late… I didn’t find out about all this until just now! 🙁

    I’m sorry you’ve been having to worry for your family, I hope everything continues to be ok!

  25. nina says:

    Im glad that all is well 🙂 Take care of you, you hear?
