Beauty Snacks: Sites of the Day, March 6

Published in: Just For Fun


Use the force!

Ever wish you were a Jedi Knight and could move makeup brushes with your mind? Here’s one cute way to turn yourself into one.


Members only

I *love* the ’80s and these chic Turquoise, Fuchsia, Black Mock Crocodile, Metallic Snake and Leopard Patent makeup bags from Members Only. Totally rad, yah?

You are not alone

And you thought you were the only person putting wigs on your cat… πŸ™‚

Hello, miss

Strangers used to call me “Miss,” but now most call me “Ma’am.” I’m not thrilled about this turn of events. Perhaps Paula’s Choice will turn back the clock a little to that kinder, gentler time.

Hey, font freaks!

Typography rules, doesn’t it? Now you, too, can immortalize your penmanship by turning your handwriting into a font.

Will it be berry?

Halle Berry’s getting ready to launch a new fragrance, and if homegirl doesn’t add notes of berry to the scent my sad pun will smell even worse.

Mellow yellow

I’ve gone cuckoo for all things yellow! On my yellow lust list: Sephora by OPI nail polish in IM Beauty, the Kate Spade Westbury Jessie handbag in Sunflower, this J.Crew Wide Patent Leather Belt in Sour Lemon and this Old Navy Classic Polo in Yellow Stripe.

Daydreaming about vacay

If I were bound for a weekend tropical island getaway, I’d totally want to be wearing these clothes.

TGIF! We made it. πŸ™‚

  2. TGIF Karen! Ok now I have to go home and dress up my cats in wigs haha. Actually I did buy some Easter bunny ears for my hammy Sammy because for some reason he always reminded me of the Easter bunny. I will be taking pics, don’t you worry πŸ™‚

    Happy Friday, Karen! I love Star Wars and those little knit key chains just made my day!

    By the way, I went to Walgreen’s the other day and bought the day moisturizer and eye cream from the Biore Preservation line (especially since I was running out of both)… and can I just say, I think I’m in love! I want to give this “trying” period another week, but it seems like my skin is liking everything πŸ™‚

    Hope you have a great, sunny, and dry weekend!! πŸ™‚

    Love the “Yoda is My Homeboy!” That made my day. I really enjoy your website; super informative. Cute cat, too!

  7. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    Hey leopard lady! Me thinks you’ll like . Rrraaaw!

    Hi Lesley,

    Yah, aren’t they cute?

    Since you’re a Star Wars lover then you’ll totally appreciate what happened to me this afternoon. El Hub and I went to the movies to catch The Watchmen. When we were in line George Lucas walked up and stood right behind us in line, no joke (he lives up here in Marin). El Hub was so star struck all he could say to me was, “DUDE!”


    I couldn’t get a word out, either. It was only after he disappeared into the theater when I sorta snapped out of it… I pointed at my kelly green coat and squeaked out the words, “Green is the color of Yoda!”

  9. Karen says:

    Hi Tanya,

    Sho’ nuff! πŸ™‚

    I am obsessed with yellow. I wish I could rock it as well as Big Bird, sigh!

  10. Karen says:

    Hi Sarahc,

    You’re welcome! Have fun!

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Anne Marie,

    Thanks! I really do wish Yoda was my homeboy. He’d be handy to have in your corner in a pinch, ya know? πŸ™‚

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Vampy Varnish,

    That is one of my goals in life. I dunno if Tabs will go for it… I’m gonna try my damndest!

    I can’t wait to see Sammy rocking the ears. AWESOME!
