Comment to Win a $50 eGift Card From MAC! (Ends Monday)

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun


This giveaway is closed, and the winner has been contacted (CONGRATULATIONS, ISIS THE CAT (AKA JESSICA)!!!), but check back next Saturday for another giveaway.


Weird! I just looked up the term “cutie patootie” in the dictionary, and right there on the page was a picture of Zac Efron!


Fo’ reals, though. πŸ™‚

Girl, how come you didn’t tell me to watch 17 Again sooner!? It was such a cute movie! And I love movies like that. I feel like I really dropped the ball on that one by not watching it sooner… LOL!

Rise and shine, morning glory! Judging by the sun streaming through my windows, it’s a beautiful, but eerily quiet, day. I don’t hear a single bird singing right now, which is highly unusual… Most mornings are a cacophony of bird-related activity, but I don’t hear a single tweet or chirp. I wonder what’s going on out there…

Oh! I can’t believe I almost forgot to mention this, but do you ever play fancy card games? El Hub has been getting me into boardgames and card games lately, and he ordered a really fun one from Amazon called Love Letters. It’s so much fun! It’s quick and easy to play, and only about $10, but we have a blast. Highly recommended for couples.


I’m kind of anticipating some power outages this fall and winter due to this whole El NiΓ±o thing, so we’re stocking up on a few games to have around just in case.

Good luck in the giveaway this long weekend, my friend! I hope you’re doing something fun for Labor Day. πŸ™‚

    I’ve never even thought about bringing my foundation over my ears. Is that a thing people do? It never crossed my mind lol. This beautiful holiday weekend I plan to live at my pool. I’m expecting to be a shade darker come Tuesday.

    • Matthias Tan says:

      I have playedlove letters before. Its surprisingly easy to get a hang off. I played it with my girlfriend and we felt our bond get stronger. I highly recommend this game

  2. Agata says:

      You too, Agata! Have a great weekend. I’ll just be hanging around the house most of the weekend catching up on my relaxing.

      Ooh! What are some other good board games I should try?

    Confession: I am already plotting my Halloween makeup.

  6. Randee Jones says:

    Can’t wait to get my hands on Mac’s 2015 fall color collection!

  7. Dawn says:

    Umm…I learn many new things on this blog but makeup over the ears is a new one for me! My hair covers my ears so probably not essential for me!

  8. Amy says:

    I have never brought my foundation over my ears but now I feel like I should try it. I love making popcorn at home. Just oil and popcorn seeds in the pan but when it is done I add Parmesan cheese. So tasty!

  9. renu says:

    i don’t wear foundation and when I do wear tinted moisturiser/bb cream, I don’t cover the ears, and ears are the most flawless thing around my face πŸ™‚

  10. Lauren Wieland says:

    No I don’t bring foundation over my ears. I honestly never thought to, plus my hair is always down and covering my ears!

  11. joan says:

    This isn’t my own, but I love when my friend says it e/ time he’s shocked… “Shut the front door!”

  12. Jess says:

    I’m looking into buying my first MAC foundation, but I still have so many questions! I’m looking between pro-longwear and studio fix fluid. I’m in my 30s with very oily and acne prone skin. I’m looking to cover my scarring mainly, need your help! Can u tell me the main differences between the two and which you recommend for my skin type? Thanks!

  13. Kelsey says:

    Underrated hair product: KMS free shape! I have really thick hair that takes forever to dry and this stuff cuts my dry time by at least half!

  14. Elena says:

    Boom chicka pop popcorn is my favorite! Although I love trying different brands popcorn all the time.

  15. Rachel says:

  16. Sienna says:

    My parents make the best popcorn!!! Happy saturday!!

  18. buckycatt says:

    K&T – I am petsitting for the whole long wknd & the only cosmetic I brought was my new YSL Tint-in-Oil in the Rose shade! It is so luxurious I want them all!! Happy Wknd!

    We’re going to have to start our game stock up for El Nino too! Have a great Labor Day weekend!

  20. Jen C says:

    That card game looks soooo good! N it allows game play for 2, wow!

  21. Rachel Soto says:

    Not a book quote but a movie quote from Office Space: “I did absolutely nothing and it was everything I thought it could be.”

    Kind of sums up my idea of the perfect weekend! πŸ˜‰

  22. Liz says:

    I can’t wait for Halloween!!! I am spooky at heart. ^.^

  23. Poppy says:

    I’ve memorized so many Harry Potter passages because of how many times I’ve read and re-read the books⚑️

  24. jessica says:

    “A special time of day for you?”

    BEDTIME. My child’s bedtime.

  25. amanda grace says:

    I have never used foundation over my ears. This is a totally new concept I am interested in knowing more about!

  26. Katrina says:

    When I wear a full foundation, which isn’t often, I make sure I take it all the way to my ears. I don’t necessarily cover my ears but I make sure it’s blended into them.

  27. Nicole Anderson says:

    I feel an underrated hair line in general is carols daughter, I’ve used it for about 2 years and my hair has never been more healthy and shiny (:

  28. Sarah says:

    I probably *should* bring foundation all the way up to my ears, for the sake of thoroughness!

  29. Colleen Boudreau says:

    My favorite funny phrase I like to say is “You can’t sit with us!” from Mean Girls. πŸ™‚

  30. Krissy says:

    My kiddo slept through the night for the fifth time in his life last night. He’s already a year old. This is one tired momma.

  31. susan says:

    My special time is at bedtime with the kids!

  32. jessica says:

    “Who makes the best popcorn?”‘

    ME. *I* make the best popcorn!!

    I make caramel popcorn from scratch and It. Is. AWESOME.

  33. Ive never brought my foundation up over my ears. I probably should but I find it annoying to wash off at the end of the day. haha

  34. Trillina Palemi says:

    My sister make the best popcorn with caramel…mm a bomb eheh

  35. CR Williams says:

    Would love to win!!

  36. Terri says:

    I love the popcorn at Garrett Popcorn in Chicago. It was one of the things that I looked forward to whenever I had a layover in O’Hare.

  37. Jennifer says:

    I already have in mind what I would buy with this gift card. Mac fix + and Mac Pro Long wear concealer

  38. Laura says:

    Strange as it may sound, since I was teenager I’ve memorized passages of the “Libro del Buen Amor”, a Spanish piqaresque compilation from the 14th century. It has very funny passages, and moving poems, like the death of the “matchmaker” Trotaconventos:
    Β‘Ay Muerte! Β‘muerta sseas, muerta e malandante!
    matΓ‘steme mi vieja: Β‘matasses a mΓ­ enante!
    Enemiga del mundo, que non as semejante:
    de tu memoria amarga non sΓ© quien non se espante.

  39. Nicole says:

    Happy Caturday!!! =)

  40. andrea amy says:

    No, i’ve never worn foundation on my ears (or my neck for that matter). I wear a shade that matches my skin tone and I use very little.

  41. Jen L says:

    Happy Caturday!

    I do not use my foundation over my ears.

    I do have passages of my favourite books memorized, though not on purpose.

    I make the best popcorn.

  42. AmyBS says:

    I have put foundation in my ears once or twice, occasionally when I get tired, my ears turn bright red! So if I know I will be photographed, I use a little foundation on them, just in case!

  43. Illy Junus says:

    I never thought of having my foundation over my ear, since i use glasses most day, so i don’t see any point on doing that

  44. Ambritt says:

    I love movie theater popcorn nothing ever tasted as good as when it’s made in a real popcorn machine. At home on the stove or in the microwave its never as good! I need to invest in a popcorn machine because let me you I’m obsessed with popcorn.

  45. Jessie C. says:

    I don’t bring my foundation up over my ears.

  46. Diana says:

    I add some ground parmesan cheese (the real deal, not that kraft stuff) to my popcorn and the flavor is just amazing!!

  47. Debora Brezoi says:

    I do use foundationonmy ears too if my ears are red. It doesnt always happen.
    But on my clients I always put on the ears too. you dont know how they will react over the night.

  48. Susan T. says:

    Sadly our forecast for the long weekend is SNOW! Seriously! It’s going to be summerish again after but for this weekend I’m huddling inside with the kitties, a good book (Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch) and a mug of tea!

  49. heather says:

    I bring my foundation over my ears and down my neck because i wear fake tan and i want everything thing to look seamless.

  50. Mary W says:

    An under rated or under commented line is Not Your Mother’s hair products. NYM has some great affordable products. Plus the names are fun. One of my must haves from NYM is Kinky Moves.

  51. Marina GrigΓ³rio says:

    Here in Brazil we’re always saying “I’m not thank you”, just like that in english, but the real mean for you guys it’s:
    “I am not required”
    ahahhaha we’re crazy!

    xoxo Karen! :*

  52. Sasha says:

    Listening to Grey on audible this weekend, πŸ‘€ not sure if I like it or hate it lolol

  53. Heather L says:

    I’ll comment on two. I don’t bring foundation over my ears, however, I always use both foundation and powder, and use the powder over my ears. That seems to do the trick, and I find it easier! As for memorizing passages from a book, I took a Shakespeare course and memorized one of the sonnets (and recited it in front of the whole class!) I also memorized a Wordsworth poem just because I liked it so much!

  54. Lisa Brown says:

    I try to remember to put foundation on my ears to give a more seamless look.

  55. Analy Rodriguez says:

    My special time of the day is the afternoon when I get out of work and I spend quality time with my family and partner.

  56. Olivia M says:

    Skinny Pop has great popcorn πŸ˜‰

  57. Amoure Jones says:

    Happy Saturday,

    Not sure what’s lined up for the day because it’s raining kittens and puppies and the sun is no where in sight. Quite possibly a Netflix and all day jammies weekend for me. I do have makeup on though because I’m reviewing a few things so I’m walking around the house in full beat with jammies on lol.

    Do you bring your foundation up over your ears?

    I don’t wear foundation but I do make sure that my tinted moisturizer is blended well into my ears and neck/chest.

    Are there any books from which you’ve memorized certain passages?

    The bible

    A special time of day for you?

    Definitely morning time.

    Who makes the best popcorn?

    Smartfoods (white cheddar)

  58. Icequeen81 says:

    passage of a book Not really right now

    Maybe passages of a grammar book sound more accurate at the moment
    I repeat them so many times the past 4 weeks that it seems that is the only thing I have in my mouth/Mind . It seems the studentns never learned it before and some have forgotten them.

  59. Jasmine says:

    First, PayDay is a great game for rainy days! Definitely get that game too.
    But I definitely want to tell kinky/curly head chicks that Paul Mitchell Twirl Around is by far the most underrated hair product! It’s a styling product that helps to moisturize your hair while keeping your curls in perfect form without the stiffness or tackiness of most products.

  60. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    I love movie theater popcorn. But because I live in Indiana (home to numerous corn fields) we have some incredible retail popcorn options. My absolute fave is Just Pop In ( ~ their Smoking Goose Caramel Bacon + Cheddar flavor is crazy good!!!

  61. Cassidy says:

    Cheddar skinny pop!

  62. Lizzie says:

    I usually wear my hair down so I don’t really put foundation over my ears

  63. Rebecca says:

    Yes! He IS a cutie patootie! For sure!
    I watch that movie about every three months or so. The dancing scene is my favorite!

  64. Brenda K says:

    Teehee! πŸ˜‰

  65. Rosa says:

    I think the paul mitchell leave in conditioner doesn’t get enough love. It’s the only thing that leaves my hair manageable after all the bleach ={

  66. Hilary says:

    The best popcorn is from Trader Joes! No funky ingredients, cheap, and the herb popcorn or the olive oil popcorn is amazing!

  67. E. Jones says:

    I never thought to bring foundation to my ears but I might have to try it πŸ™‚

  68. Ayesha says:

    I make the best popcorn. It’s been proven! 😝

  69. Lulubelle says:

    I can’t say I’ve ever considered my ears and foundation together. I rarely even notice my ears, come to think of it. Happy Labor Day!

  70. Frosty says:

    A special time of day for you?

    Early morning on workdays and 7 ish pm any night – my man and I finally have the same work schedules after 8 years of him getting up just after 4 am for work. It’s been great getting ready with him in the morning. We get up early so we can leisurely get ready, fix coffee/hot breakfast and we have music playing in the background. It’s 5:30 or so and it’s all quiet and peaceful outside and it feels like we’re the only 2 people up and about. I love that, it’s just he and I for the first 2 hours of the day. 7 pm because that’s when our day is officially done and we head for the couch to watch one of our shows or read or whatever. No answering the phone, no more working on work brought home, just time to ourselves.

  71. Anja says:

    I have never really thought of bringing my foundation up over my ears

  72. Sarah Sq. says:

    Beauty confession time: I don’t wear foundation! I can’t stand the feeling of it on my face.

  73. Kristy says:

    I don’t put foundation directly on my ears, but it somehow ends up there anyway???? My face is weird.

  74. Kristy says:

    I don’t put foundation directly on my ears, but it somehow ends up there anyway???? My face is weird.

  75. Sarah W says:

    My favorite time of day is afternoon nap with my fiance!

  76. Anna says:

    Foundation on your ears? No, it would just end up in my unruly thick hair which would be a nightmare.

  77. Lizzy says:

    I’m pretty much obsessed with goodreads! It has motivated me to read so much more in the past year. πŸ™‚

  78. Jocelyn says:

    I only put foundation on my ears when I change my skin color for a costume or something. A week ago I dressed up as a zombie for a local event and put the grey-ish base I mixed up on my ears, throat, back of my neck and even hands.

  79. AmyD says:

    No, no foundation on my ears πŸ™‚

  80. Susan Parker says:

    I bought M.A.C. products for the very first time yesterday…umm, is that Madonna singing in the background? Jeez, I actually remember being scandalized when I heard her sing it on thr radio for, like, a 100 times a day. That’s right, I’m that old (54). I know exactly what I’ll if I win the gift certificate. Two lipsticks… Brave and Twig. Wishing you a wonderful laborless long weekend!

  81. Aurelie Red says:

    No foundation on my ears !
    And I HATE popcorn (but in France popcorn is less popular than in the States).

  82. Cory says:

    Hi Karen! Hope you enjoyed your Sephora makeup session! It makes me feel special when other ppl do my makeup lol!
    So I’m lovin’ that Fast Play on you, it’s a perfect neutral pink shadeβ€”which is something I always seem to be searching for…. I see that they went up a $1, same thing with UD’s singles, & just about everything else across the board for American consumers…
    Right on with the card game! They’re fun. You should totally play chess if you don’t already!
    Have a great weekend πŸ™‚

  83. Vanessa says:


  84. Ashleigh says:

    I can still recite The Raven from memory if need be as well as parts of Le Petit Prince in French from high school πŸ™‚

  85. Jade goncalves says:

    My mom makes the best popcorn. Yummy

  86. Sarah says:

    Hi Karen,
    So I’ve been looking for a day or so trying to find my perfect red lip colour, and so far, it’s really hard. Do you have any tips or any suggestions for what I should try? If it helps any, I am olive skinned, green eyes, and dark brown hair. Thanks so much, and have a lovely weekend!

  87. Leah says:

    I’ve never put foundation on my ears unless it was for a stage play and then it was a $%&!# to clean off properly!

  88. BJW says:

    I think I have inadvertently memorized some children’s books because I’ve read them so often to my kids.

  89. Christiana M says:

    I’ve memorized certain portions of classic literature.. and some JRR Tolkien and some Winnie the Pooh..

  90. Maria says:

    I should probably put foundation over my ears but it’s not going to happen

  91. My favorite time of the day is Tea Time. Lighting a candle, brewing some tea and reading a few pages as it gets dark outside is perfect to unwind.

    special time of the day (or night) for me? 2am. all’s quiet, and i am reading a great book.

    thanks for this chance

  93. margarita says:

    Happy Aloha Saturday, Karen!

  94. Bianca Rogoveanu says:

    I like Chio popcorn !

  95. Lesia says:

    Oh, my gosh! Yes, 17 Again! Greta movie. One of my favorites by him. I’d love to hear your thoughts about your Sephora Make up class. Was your “Smokey Eye” post related to the class?

  96. Tracy Robertson says:

    I think the most underrated hair product is cheap hair gel. I use a little gel to stop frizz, and I have tried all kinds of brands. I find the high end ones either hold too much and feel like glue, or flake and make me look like I have dandruff. I have the best luck with the big tubs of store brand. The cheaper the gel, the better it seems to work!

  97. Stephanie says:

    I haven’t memorized any book passages, but my husband and I have lots of movie & TV show quotes memorized. He can do the court room scene from A Few Good Men spot on.

  98. Crystal says:

    I do bring foundation over my ears when my hair is up. Only thing is I over-think it and wonder just how much of my exposed skin should be covered in foundation as well. So I never put my hair up or wear foundation when my hair is up so that I never have to stress over that haha

  99. Janet Shepherd says:

    I just saw this & thought of you – cat street view! Like Google street view, but with kitty locations – from Japan πŸ˜€

  100. Singrsling says:

    My special time is every morning when I don’t have to get up early to go to work, like these next couple of days. – yeah!

  101. Aviva says:

    I bring my foundation down my neck and ears sometimes if it doesn’t match perfectly!

  102. Jennifer says:

    Wow, a three day weekend and every day is going to be beautiful and sunny. I don’t want summer to end. We’ll be celebrating my husband’s 60th birthday on Monday. Yikes, that means that mine is coming in a few months.

  103. Erin says:

    I do not put foundation on my ears…Normally I don’t on my eyelids either but I got sunburned and now I have too because my eyelids are darker than my foundation!! Aaah!!!

  104. Andrea Darst says:

    Zac Efron was so hot in “Neighbors” and he had his shirt off for most of the movie! Hope you have a great holiday weekend!

  105. Mel says:

    A local movie theater chain around here has unusually good popcorn – I think they say it’s Orville Redenbacher. At home I just make Pop Secret in the microwave!

  106. nicolthepickle says:

    I’ve memorized most of The Blue Castle by LM Montgomery. It’s one of my favourite books, and I can read it over and over.

  107. Tania G says:

    Hope you enjoy your holiday weekend! It’s supposed to be gorgeous.

  108. Hi Karen,
    I do bring my foundation up to my ears, just what’s left on after I’ve done my face though. πŸ™‚ hope you have a great weekend!

  109. Katie Rumsey says:

    Ooh that game looks good! My boyfriend got me into card games and board games. Last game night we played Coup and Settlers of Katan!

  110. Amy says:

    I definitely have things memorized from “The History of Love” by Nicole Krauss.

  111. KV says:

    My favorite time of the day is just before sunrise.

  112. Alexandra says:

    – Are there any books from which you’ve memorized certain passages?
    Yes, I have actually memorized certain passages from the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. I’m a huge Tolkien fan πŸ˜€
    Hope you’re having a great weekend Karen!

  113. Lisa says:

    We love making popcorn and playing card or board games.

  114. maria says:

    I would love some new lipsticks from Mac!

  115. Amy Z. says:

    Suave’s shampoo is underrated. The brand’s products are affordable, but perform well for a basic shampoo.

  116. Elizabeth says:

    I feel like hair products from both Fekkai and John Frieda are super underrated

  117. Lynda says:

    Lately I look forward to my commute (1 hour each way) so I can listen to my podcasts)

  118. Carla S says:

    The movie theaters make the best popcorn.I think any kind of microwave popcorn called movie theater butter is good,too.

  119. Isis the Cat says:

    Funny things said?

    My human says “Move!” a lot and I think it is hilarious. Like I am really going to move.

  121. Lisa says:

    Movie theater popcorn is the best!

  122. Laura says:

    Special time of the day for me is when I’m sleeping.

  123. izzy says:

    An adorable little family run movie theater near my house makes the most amazing popcorn!! They have won awards for it πŸ™‚

  124. Chasity Mckinzie says:

    Do you ever wonder what your cat is thinking? My cats are very vocal and needy. When I don’t give them the attention they want i.e when I’m doing dinner or helping kiddos with school work. They will give you this look and I swear he has to be thinking of you don’t rub my back right now mom. I’m going to scratch up that nice new couch you got. Get it. Lol but really do you ever wonder?

  125. Heather G says:

    A funny phrase I say often is “…that’s what she said”.

  126. Emily C says:

    The best popcorn is when you don’t get evil shards of corn cut into your gums! That is the worst!

  127. Lisa Foster says:

    My special time of day is very early in the morning. I get up with my dogs and drink coffee, check email, watch YouTube videos and work out, all before my husband gets up. I love that quiet time in the morning with my dogs.

  128. AndrΓ©a Maria says:

    A special time of day for you?
    My special time of day is at night , when all my family is together .

  129. Tatiana says:

    Foundation over my ears? Uh, no way. 1) My hair covers my ears. 2) I usually only concentrate foundation over the center of my face and blend it out to nothing at the sides of my face where my skin is more even toned. I don’t think my foundation ever goes on thick enough or far enough to make it to my ears or jawline. Just my preference. I like sheer to light coverage foundations and meticulous application of concealer over any red spots.

  130. Eileen says:

    VO5 Simply Stunning Leave-in Conditioner smells amazing (hubby and girlfriend approved) and works great.

  131. Keia says:

    Foundation over the ears?? That’s taking it a bit too far, next will be that I have to make sure to carefully foundation the insides of my nostrils. Besides, I’m always running late anyway, so I’m usually lucky if I cover my actual face, under the chin is only if I have the time to give a crap.
    BTW, you have the greatest makeup looks, I would love it if you did tutorials (just like every Tom, Dick and Harry and YouTube!).

  132. Jackie Sakalauskas says:

    I memorized a passage from “Conversations with God” book 1 that I try to follow daily….
    What you truly believe will come to pass, your faith will make it so…” I love that passage because the faith it talks about is faith in what you believe, not relating to religious faith….I so enjoy spirituality in relation to life. I also love cats, that’s quite a spiritual thing for me….

  133. Lisa Fisher says:

    I love skinny pop!!

  134. Susan P. says:

    We have always played board games and now my girls have their own “nerdy” board games they play with their friends for game nights.

  135. Steven weber says:

    funny phrase I say – Gotter Otter.

  136. Kecia S. says:

    I have a few phrases that I say often & they do make people laugh, so I guess they count as funny. One of my most popular is “Thanks for noticing!”, but here’s my personal favorite: “I like living indoors in a lifestyle to which I’ve become accustomed, so I continue to shop up for work.”

  137. Linda says:

    I just bought a new foundation from Mac called Studio Sculpt. Have you ever used it? And do you like it?

  138. Leigh says:

    I didn’t wear makeup till I was 40 and 17 years later, I still don’t have a knack for putting it on so it looks good. YouTube videos don’t help. I look like I have something smeared over my freckles and it looks hideous.

    I have a box at my local UPS store and I was told by one of the employees that he and the rest of the employees have a running bet of who gets the most packages each week, me or this other woman. He puts the money on me and he’s winning!!! I had 6 come in this week and I think the guy wanted to hug me or something.

    If my mom and I are together and we see something odd, funnny or indescribable, we will immediately look at each other and say WOMP WOMP.

    My favorite time of day is the morning because I love breakfast foods and watching tv in bed! I never thought of putting my foundation above my ears. I may try that the next time I pull my hair up. I have a long bob and I like to pull half of it up into a high ponytail at the top of my head! It’s so 90’s but I have a lot of fun with it. One of my college friends always called it my “whale tail”.

    My absolute favorite time is early morning when no one else is up. I love to search the internet for all sorts of things, and read my bible. I don’t always read my bible, but I have a morning devotional that I read called, “Jesus Calling”, that I really adore. It has scriptures at the end that I look up to start the day. It helps me be ‘God centered’ for the day.
    Hope you and El Hub are well. Tabs too. Gracie and I are doing well.

    Are there any books from which you’ve memorized certain passages?

    Nope. I do have a document where I input passages of books that really resonate with me. Sometimes I write them out and put them on my walls. The only time I’ve ever taken the trouble to memorize passages was when I took a Shakespeare class during high school. We were quizzed on each act and some questions required us to quote passages from memory. This was the most difficult literature class I’ve ever taken (including my college years) but definitely one of the most enjoyable–i’ve always thought I was so lucky to have a teacher who was so dramatic.

  297. Hamza G says:

    The Cinema’s popcorn is the best !

  298. Kirsten says:

    Ha! I don’t put foundation anywhere near my ears. My hair covers them and I don’t want to take a chance of breakouts around them.

    Today was my nephew’s 1st birthday party and he cried nearly the whole time! Poor baby πŸ˜•

  300. Makyla says:

    Sometimes I bring my foundation up over my ears, but probably not as often as I should haha. Hope you have a great weekend, Karen! And thanks for the game recommendation–it looks so fun for dreary, stormy days especially. God Bless!

  301. Isabella says:

    I think the popcorn you can make yourself from scratch are the best! I make mine with butter instead of oil. Makes them look a bit dirty but tastes so good!!

  302. ula says:

    chess is the only board game we have. my boyfriend loves playing chess, but I just don’t have the patience and the necessary experience to play against him, so no board games for me. but I love playing cards. Also, as a child, we used to play Monopoly for weeeks…we loved it.

  303. Grace says:

    I just went to my friend’s house and realised I need to lift my makeup game, so I compile my list of new products I need. Unfortunately I do not have $300 to spare, don’t you love the student life?!

    I love my popcorn with some truffle salt, or for a sweet treat, with some peanut butter m&m’s mixed in, they get melty delicious!

  308. Jade says:

    The very best time of day is when I come home and plop into bed. It’s the best feeling ever. I just want to melt into my sheets and fall asleep immediately. My cat likes to join me so he can be the “little spoon”.

  309. Lyse Davitt says:

    May sound odd but I LOVE day old movie theatre popcorn, definitely the best.

  310. A special time of day for me is early morning when it’s quiet and peaceful. Love it.

  311. meka says:

    No I dont bring foundation up to my ears; that seams too messy and not necessary. My ears look great without foundation!

  312. Amber says:

    I’ve put my foundation on with a buffing brush, typically. I then quickly buff the excess on my ears. This is done prior to any earrings, of course. The main reason I do this goofiness is because my ears tend to be constantly more red than anywhere on my head. If I blush, my ears turn nearly crimson, lol!! I also feel it provides a nice, unified canvas across the face. I usually use a light to medium coverage foundation, a la MAC’s Face and Body or Smashbox BB water foundation. This technique may be tougher with a full coverage, but do-able by using the excess at the end. Love your blog! It’s my go-to daily beauty blog!

  313. Princess says:

    Hmm, I guess I never thought about bringing my foundation over my ears. Might have to give it a try tomorrow!
