Beauty Snacks: Sites of the Day, Nov. 28

Published in: Just For Fun

Globe Trotting Cats!

Artist and mother Lisa M. Dalton started The Travel Kitty Project to teach her son geography and to help people share travel stories.



Travel Kitties are small stuffed animals Lisa sews by hand (soo cute) and sells on Etsy. People bring their Travel Kitties along with them on trips and take pictures of them posing with landmarks, ha! I love it! You can follow their adventures on the Travel Kitty Blog.

Really, Japan?

I love the colors and composition of photographer Ruben Frosali’s work. He really makes Japan come alive in his shots. A few of my favorites: We’re Meant to Be Together, Donnie Darko Tokyo and Japanese Man Hairstyle.

Sci-Fi Makeup

Satellite 3‘s spacey makeup merges sci-fi packaging with makeup colors inspired by heavenly bodies like planets, stars and comets. Beam me UP, Scotty!

Booming Budget Salons

Even when the economy goes to sh*t, women will still find ways to get their facials, eyelash extensions and blow outs. Necessity is the mother of invention, after all. Former regulars to pricey salons and spas like Bliss have started migrating to budget-friendly beauty salons like Feet Island and Sai Kay 21 (great names!).

Goin’ Gray

I haven’t worn a gray nail polish in years, but this I gotta try — check out these shades from Carolyn New York. I’m getting the itch to go gray!

Happy day after turkey day! Gobble, gobble…

Whew! Today was hectic. I had to pick up Tabs from the kitty hotel today because they were closed yesterday. He seems fine, a little needier than usual, but I think it’s kinda sweet. I like to think he misses me.

After getting Tabs I caught up on some blogging and resisted the urge to hit the stores for Black Friday. I did do some online window shopping, though, loading up shopping carts at Sephora, Old Navy and J. Crew, but I chickened out and closed my browser without pulling the trigger. :)

Hope you had a great day!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    Karen, I did the same thing with the online shopping yesterday — found all sorts of goodies that I attempted to justify. It was when I realized that I had bacon-flavored floss in one of them (Urban Outfitters) and was trying to tell myself it would make a good gift that I realized I was shopping only for the sake of shopping.

    It was a very close call!
