Leave a Comment for a Chance to Win a $50 Sephora E-GIFT CARD! (Ends Monday)

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun


This giveaway is closed, and the winner has been contacted (CONGRATULATIONS, STEPHANIE!!!), but check back next Saturday for another giveaway.


Rise and shine, pal ‘o mine! I’m actually writing this on Friday afternoon because I have no idea if I’m going to be here, or at the hospital tomorrow morning. I had another appointment with my doctor today (Friday), and she said that I’m ready to pop! Of course, she’s been saying that for the past two weeks, so who knows? I am convinced that I will be pregnant until forever.


I hope you have a wonderful, fun-filled weekend, and I will hopefully talk to you on the flip side soon.

    oh, and yes I regularly make pizza crust from scratch. If we make pizza at home the crust is ALWAYS from scratch. It is so easy to do. There is really no reason not to do it.

    And I live in NYC which has the proven BEST tap water for the best pizza!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Hilary says:

    The palette I’m still loving is UD Naked 2. I really have no need to buy another eye shadow palette after this one!

  10. I did make pizza crust from scratch once, but I didn’t like it, to be honest. Still very pregnant over here!

    Ooh homemade cauliflower crust pizza is the best!

    And I have wavy hair that curls and straightens easily. I have pretty easy going hair!

  19. Swati says:

    I have straight hair that likes to do whatever it wants instead of falling flat ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Mary W says:

    Good luck with baby girl! I am blessed/cursed with tight curls. I’ve found the longer it is, the looser the curl so it’s almost waist length when wet.

  21. Erin says:

    Best wishes to you for an easy delivery and a healthy baby! <3 The Carli Bybel palette is a fave right now and I love Bobbi Brown and Urban Decay for high end brands (but I secretly love them all. lol).

  22. Tiffany says:

    My current favorite palette is still (still!) the Naked3 palette. It’s perfect for my coloring!

  23. nlm8 says:

    Good luck with everything, Karen! Would love to plant a lemon tree one day. Fresh lemons for homemade beauty masks ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Lindsey says:

    Haha I actually made pizza crust from scratch for the first time last week! It didn’t work too well. I’ve always had bad luck with yeast ๐Ÿ™ But it still got eaten!

  25. Laura says:

    Your GIF is adorable! I have wavy hair.

  26. Brittany says:

    It’s really exciting to have followed your pregnancy journey now that your little girl will be making her big debut super soon! My fingers, and toes, are crossed that everything will go smoothly with the delivery!

    Onto the question, the only time I have planted a tree was for school beautification purposes. Both instances have occurred around Earth day too.

  27. Joselyn Hernandez says:

    I love making pizza dough from scratch! It always seems to taste better and then you can make it how you like your pizza crust to be!

  28. Katrina says:

    My hair is wavy. My current plans are to find the best product to keep it in it’s best natural state – so it’s easier for me to do on a daily basis.

  29. Maria says:

    I have wavy hair that never stays curly or straight :(. I tried dry brushing today after reading your post on it and I love it!

  30. Stephanie Barrett says:

    love making pizza from scratch!

  31. Sydney Fleekop says:

  32. Gemma says:

    Sending you so much luck with the birth! So excited to hear the news! I have one of the weird trolls with a sequin belly from the 90’s as my luck token – yes I am sad! xx

  33. Jen says:

    I am getting silly excited over the new Chanel nail polish formulation, especially since it sounds like the wear time is fantastic! Which is silly because my new job doesn’t allow any nail polish to be worn at work…. :’-(

    I’ll just have to live vicariously through swatches. They give me joy.

  34. Gina M says:

    I love urban decay naked foundation!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  35. Teresa Luong says:

    I always love your gifs! My hair is straight.

  36. irem akpinar says:

    My hair is curly and its super hard to tamee!! Sometimes i am hanging around like a lion with a huge mane -.-

  37. Shelly says:

    My hair is naturally straight but I still blow dry so it doesn’t look all wavy and weird :/

  38. Lydia B. says:

    I have naturally wavy/curly hair, but it is currently in a weird wavy/frizzy state. Like it definitely woke up on the wrong side of the bed.

  39. Lydia says:

    My current favorite pallete is the Naked 3! ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. Dareece says:

    You’re so close! I’m due with number 2 (a little sister for my princess) at the beginning of June and I’m remembering those last weeks before birth; filled with anxiety and anticipation. Rest up and enjoy meeting your little sweetie very soon!

    I have definitely become a MAC gal but I did have to deviate to Make Up Forever for foundation due to a lack of a perfect match. I’m praying MAC comes out with a shade for me in Pro Longwear (something between NC45 and NC50 please) because it’s a better foundation than MUFE Mat Velvet for my super oily face. In the meantime, I will have patience.

    My fave item right now is my MAC lipstick in Fast Play. It is a perfect nude shade for me and is almost an exact match for my natural lip color. That along with Chestnut lip liner and clear lipglass makes for my perfect everyday lip look!

  41. Christina says:

    I’ve never planted a tree, but I would love to someday!

  42. Liz says:

    My husband makes pizza dough from scratch and also the most delicious breads.

  43. Ashleigh says:

    Woo! Go momma Karen, you can do it.
    My favorite palette right now is probably the Becca ombre rouges, I’ve been getting a lot of use out of it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Tatiana says:

    You are so beautiful in the GIF. Our first house had a huge ancient gingko tree in the backyard. Even though it was a female tree and had stinky fruit drop from it every year, I loved it’s golden glory in the fall. Every house we’ve lived in since then, we’ve planted a gingko tree somewhere on the property.

  45. Raeanne says:

    I am so excited and happy for you! Praying for an easy delivery and quick recovery for all involved… Come on, Baby Girl!!!!

  46. Ellen says:

    So excited for you!!

  51. Kris says:

    From-scratch pizza dough is the best!

  54. Allison says:

    That gif made me do a double take, lol. <3 So I have to have a colonoscopy on Monday (I have Crohn's disease). It's my second… so I already know how horrible tomorrow is gonna be. But I think I'll take a small train case of goodies with me to the hospital, so I can at least try to look pretty! I've got two hours between arrival time and procedure time, so I might as well have some fun with it ๐Ÿ˜€

  55. Maren says:

    I tried to plant a number of trees way back when; don’t know if any of ’em “took.” I think my fave high-end makeup line might be Illamasqua– just from the looks of it, though. Haven’t had the pleasure of owning anything from them yet.

  87. Lynn T. says:

    I have straight wavy hair. it’s just a messy really, i have to straighten it everyday to get it smooth. do recommend any good products for straightening hair? right now i’m using the Instyler, it’s quicker than a flat iron. And I sometimes use heat protectant/ straightening balm in my hair. I;m trying to wash my hair every other day, so I stay away from putting things in my hair.

  95. jules m. says:

    i used to make pizza from scratch a lot during the summer, the secret was the flour but i couldnt find it anywhere local so i had to order it. Double OO flour I believe it was, from italy. ๐Ÿ™‚ we had a pizza party one time and everyone got to make their own, it was fun and delicious. i had fresh basil, mozzarella balls, and homemade sauce along with meat and veggie toppings. they were delicious!

  96. Pamela says:

    Can’t wait to “meet” Baby Girl! Just go with the flow during delivery. Things may not go as planned (I had two C-sections) but you will have a healthy baby. She is going to be a lucky baby to have you for a mom! Make sure you have some help lined up for those first few weeks (food, laundry, naps for you, etc).

  97. Marta says:

    You are adorable ! Cant wait to see your baby !

  98. Tracy Robertson says:

    Hi Karen, OMG, we will be reading about your baby girl any time now. You look great! I planted an apple tree in my parents backyard when I was a kid. It took off great and got to be about 15 feet tall! Unfortunately it got too big to manage in their tiny backyard and they had to take it down about 10 years ago.

  117. Erin Ortiz says:

    Good luck to you mama!

    I have wavy hair but it decides whatever it wants to be that day. Most of the time the waves don’t form or half is straight so I pretty much never wear it wavy.

  118. Alix says:

    My favorite high-end makeup brand is NARS.

  119. Leya says:

    Haha, I used to make pizzas all the time until the kids came along. Now, there’s just no time for luxuries like that. Or, maybe I’ve just become lazy ๐Ÿ˜›

  125. Nicole says:

    My hair is wavy. It was horribly stickstraight as a child. Thank goodness that is over!

    My favorite high-end brand is YSL.

  129. Susan C. says:

    Karen, you look gorgeous!

    I am so looking forward to meeting your sweet baby girl.

    My hair is now wavy, but when I was younger it was stick straight. That led to the dreaded ’80s perm, which I was only deluded enough to try once, thank goodness!

    I planted a peach tree (the picture of the fruit it could supposedly yield was drool-worthy), but when I divorced my ex-husband got the house, including the yard and said tree. I’m really hoping it fails to yield anything. Is that mean?

  130. Katie says:

    That gif DOES make me think of the magic photos in Harry Potter!! How cool because I LOVE HP. I have been obsessed with the Gwen Stefani palettes lately. I have fair skin and they’re like magic on me–and the packaging makes me weirdly happy. Sending good thoughts your way (and to baby girl) for the birth day!

  131. Jennifer Pham says:

    Never planted a tree – but did make a pizza. Not necessarily from scratch (we already had store-bought pizza crust). Not bad!

  132. Terri says:

    I’ve been really liking the Naked on the Run palette – it’s a great all-in-one. While I wish the bronzer were just a tad darker, overall, everything in it works for me.

  133. Rachel R. says:

    *Waving back*

    My favorite palette is the Urban Decay Urban Spectrum. Other current favorites are Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons, Urban Decay Gwen Stefani eyeshadow and blush palettes, and the Morphe Picasso Palette.

  134. Laurie says:

    I thought of you yesterday when I went out to get the new Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint! I hope that baby girl shows up soon, happy and healthy!

  135. I’ve never made bread or pizza crust from scratch, but now that I’m divorced and home alone most nights, I might try making bread from scratch. My mom gave me a 5-minute no-knead recipe. Lol, like I need more carbs in my life!

  136. Trude says:

    I’ve been using the heck out of the Tartelette Tease, such a pretty little palette! So excited for you, almost-mama! ๐Ÿ™‚

  142. Elizabeth says:

    My favorite palette at the moment is the Lorac Mega Palette 2…I cannot get enough of it!

  143. Joni M says:

    Hi karen, thinking of you as you prepare for the birth of baby girl! Cant wait to hear her name. Will you be doing a mini birth story or anything? I dont really have a favorite right now but I have been using my Gwen Stefani eye and blush palettes a lot, mostly because they are new and I am just experimenting with what kind of looks I can come up with.

  144. Michelle ComesLast says:

    Love the video! You and Baby Girl are adorable! I have made homemade pizza. It is much better than buying take out! Craftsy.com (I take some of their classes online) has a free class for making pizza at home. You don’t have to buy anything to take it, and the gentleman who teaches it is an expert bread baker. They have it free as an intro, so pizza for everyone! I would rather spend the money selectively on Dior or Chanel.

  145. Irene says:

    For a Christmas tree, my bf bought me a potted cypress plant. I planted it outside after Christmas, but I think it is dying because it is turning brown and crispy. It’s been getting water several times weekly so I’m not sure why ๐Ÿ™

  146. Deretta says:

    I have a great recipe for pizza dough that you make in the food processor! Hair – curly, but have worn it straight for years, transitioning back to curls.

  147. Jennifer says:

    I’m so excited for you and your husband. Just like you two, we all can’t wait!!
    We’ve planted dogwood trees at both our current and former houses.

    My new fave eye palette is: Tease by Tarte. It is so good!
    Maybe you will have your Baby girl on Monday, Feb. 29th (leap year). That would be so cool. Good luck Karen. ๐Ÿ™‚

  157. Kelsey Gardiyash says:

    My favourite high end make up brand is probably Too-Faced! I love their bronzers, blushes and eye shadows! I also love their melted lip sticks. And they are cruelty-free! ๐Ÿ™‚

  158. Maria says:

    She’ll be here soon enough! Best wishes to you and the little angel. <3

  159. Alona Y says:

    My current favorite palette is between the Vice 4 and the Lorac Pro, still figuring out new looks from both! You look beautiful by the way, congrats!

  160. ADONNA says:

    Love Mac cosmetics. You look so pretty.

  161. Tracy says:

  162. Laura says:

    I have wavy hair. I really wish it was either straight or curly though.

  163. Susan Christy says:

    My hair is straight as can be.

  164. Heather G says:

    I’ve been loving my Becca Ombre Rouge palette lately. Super easy but always looks lovely.

  165. Karleena says:

    I’ve never really thought of my favorite high end makeup brand, but I have been loooooving Tarte lately!!

  166. Sara says:

    My hair is stick straight and refuses to be anything other than straight for more than a few hours (curling my hair is a pointless cause!).

  167. Rachel says:

    Yes, I make pizza dough from scratch every week for my boyfriend and I! I love making dough of any kind, it’s like therapy for me.

  168. Emily says:

    I like the Naked3 palette. Rose gold is a good color for me! I like homemade pizza but usually do the French bread pizza or bagel pizza or something.

  169. Quinn says:

    oh boy, my hair is suuper suuper curly! It looks great in photos, I love it!

  170. Janetta says:

    Fav high end brand, CHANEL hands down!

  171. Gaby says:

    I’ve never planted a tree! But I did once try to plant some beans for a science project and they ended up disintegrating and never growing into anything….

    My favorite palette currently is… anything dark and broody. I’ve been really into vampy lips lately, but sometimes I feel like I can’t pull them off :/

  172. Anna T. says:

    My hair is wavy and frizzy! ๐Ÿ™

  173. Beth says:

    My doctor finally gave up & said the baby would come when it was ready (this was after the third guess didn’t work. It was also 44yrs ago & no ultra sound). Turns out the baby will come after you forget what it’s like to Not be pregnant.

  174. Karen says:

    I have planted many trees in my yard and I love each one!

  175. Tania G says:

    Best of luck to you! This is such an exciting time, enjoy every minute ๐Ÿ™‚

  179. Jessie C. says:

    I have straight hair.

  180. Jen C says:

    All the best for the labor, Karen!

  181. Gina B. says:

    Wow what a weekend. I’m so anticipant for you Karen!!! It would be very hard to say what favorite high-end product but I think it’s Chanel…..!!!

  182. Hollie says:

    My favorite makeup palette right now is the Visart neutrals and dark mattes. I caught them on sale a few months ago and I am obsessed!!! My hair is polka straight. I cannot get it to hold a curl for the life of me. I’ve tried everything. I just keep it short and funky, this way my life is made so much easier!!

  183. Bitts says:

    My hair is straight when it’s shorter, but it gets wavy as it gets longer, since the “repeat” is really long. At the “bra-band” length, it’s long loose sausages, but any shorter than that, you’d never know the curls were there!

  184. mrsshukra says:

    Have not planted a tree!

  185. Lori says:

    My favorite palette(s) at the moment, are the various Morphe palettes I have been picking up.

  186. Sharene says:

    Have not planted a tree before!

  187. Jori says:

    I planted a tree in my parents’ backyard when I was in first grade – and the power company just insisted on cutting it down! Perhaps the placement wasn’t great…

  188. Jay says:

    My current fave makeup brand is Nars ๐Ÿ™‚ i just bought the lip pencil in Lodhi after reading your review! So thanks for that.

  189. Georgia says:

    โ€ขWhatโ€™s your hair: curly, straight or wavy? wavy

  190. Krystle says:

    Straight haired girl here!

  191. Cathy says:

    My favorite makeup brands are probably Tarte and Bare Minerals. My second favorite is probably Benefit because of their blushes. I’ve never made pizza crust but it’s because I live in Chicago where they have the best pizza in the world ;))).

  192. Sarah Duehr says:

    The only high-end makeup I’ve bought is benefit’s BB cream. I did love it enough to repurchase it, despite the high-ish price.

  193. Sylvia says:

    We use to make a whole wheat pizza at home when I was a kid. I have wavy hair, but only in the last year have I really realized it’s wavy potential.

  194. Joan Holmes says:

    I started using Roden & Fields line and love it!

  195. Annie says:

    My hair is stick straight until it hits my shoulders, where it tends to flare out–it’s so stubborn! I have to really plan it out if i want it wavy LOL

  196. Denay says:

    My 5th grade class and I plant trees for Arbor Day every year.

  197. Bertha says:

    My hair is the straightest straight that ever straighted.

  198. Sarah Sq. says:

  200. Oliver says:

    My favorite high end makeup brand would have to be Koh Gen Do

  201. Maddie says:

    My good luck charm is a ladybug, it’s so important to me that I had a ladybug tattooed on my hip so I always have good luck!

  202. TrippyPixie says:

    My hair used to be pretty curly, but now it’s wavy.

  203. Sandy says:

    Hi Karen you look so beautiful, you wear your pregnancy well. You have been in my thoughts and I can’t believe that you are still posting contests. I expect to hear that you’ve had that baby girl very soon! My favorite palette of late has been my Naked Basics 2 palette that I was gifted for Christmas. It was a real surprise and I am loving it. My favorite high end brand is probably my YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick. I love the texture and smell of those, so pricey but so yummy. Take Care.

  204. Aarti says:

    Curly hair for this gal! I used to hate it when I was a teen because it was a frizzy, tangled mess. However, I know know how to take care of it and now absolutely love my frizz-free spiral curls!

  205. Donna W. says:

    On another topic, I won tickets through People Magazine to the bleacher seats on the red carpet for the Oscars on February 28. I am so excited. We have to arrive at 8:30 a.m. They feed us 3 meals. After the red carpet entrance, we go into the El Capitan Theater across the street and watch the awards ceremony. We also get a swag bag. This prize package they valued at $1,000. This should be quite an experience!

  206. Natasha says:

    I’ve been having fun playing with all the awesome colors in my Jem and the holograms palette!

  207. BlackAsphodel says:

    Whatโ€™s your hair: curly, straight or wavy? Straight & I like it that way. Sometimes I wish it had gentle waves.

  208. Allison says:

    My hair is a disappointing blend of straight and ‘curly’, where ‘curly’ means that random sections curl away from my head like they’re trying to escape and/or make me look like an idiot. I am very good friends with my flat iron.

  209. Lupe says:

    You look so cute! My hair was curly when I was little, but now it’s just wavy. I miss curly hair. ):

  211. Kim says:

    You look so adorable! I have celiac so I’m stuck making homemade pizza dough, the store stuff is not so good! It’s actually fun making it from scratch though!

  212. Denise S says:

    My hair is wavy. In the winter it’s okay but in the summer it’s so frizzy from the humidity that I spend way too much time trying to tame it.

  213. Olivia M says:

    My favorite palette is definitely KVD’s Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette!

  214. Jennifer says:

    I have an amazing pizza dough recipe–totally easy, no-knead, it doesn’t stick, it’s delicious and can be used to make thick or thin crust.
    Lookin’ good mamacita!

  215. Katie says:

    I hope BG vacates soon! I am so excited for you!

    Good luck and have a safe delivery.

  219. Deb says:

    Here’s hoping for a quick, safe delivery for you and BG.

    I’m not sure of my favorite overall line but my favorite, latest high end purchases are a couple of the Kat Von D shadows.

  220. Savannah says:

    I think I’m going to try one of those Chanel nail polishes. I’m not big on polish (can’t wear it where I work) but I like nice quality ones for my toes or for when I have a day off to do my nails. I really liked this Dior nail glow polish, but I actually used it all up haha. I’m excited for you and baby girls arrival! Lots of love <3

  221. Sandy Pincombe says:

    Years ago I never appreciated my soft wavy hair and always tried to straighten it. Now I just go with it and am trying to limit the blow dryer and curling/flat irons I use. Here’s hoping that as I type this you have delivered “Swwet pea”๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿ‘ผ

    Favorite makeup brand Urban Decay. Congrats on baby! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    PS Hope you are well!!

  234. Laura says:

    Ooh Karen, I hope BG makes her long-awaited appearance soon!

    To hit some of the questions: Yes, I’ve planted a tree. I don’t have a good luck token. My current favorite palette is my MAC 15 pan custom palette in light neutrals (I know, that’s almost cheating). I’ve never made pizza crust from scratch. I’m totally a Chanel girl, and my hair is straight. PHEW!

  245. julie b edelstein says:

    I just got the lorac pro 2 palette as a gift and i am in love. It’s so pigmented and stays so nicely with primer. I was having issues with the naked 1 but this is a whole new world. I think I just prefer softer shadows.

    Congrats on baby girl!

  249. Wanda S says:

    While I’ve never made a pizza from scratch, it is something that I would like to do. It would be something fun to do with my son as well as he’s recently taken an interest in cooking. He baked an amazing caramel apple pie during the holidays. He’s 13! lol He loves everything Nerf… My husband loves everything cast iron… And I love makeup. I wish I could say that I have one favorite, but it’s a tight race between Too Faced and Urban Decay. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Wishing you and your little one all the best!!

    My hair’s wavy, and recently my LDR boyfriend has made me realized that (relatively) fanceh shampoo makes a huuuugee difference. I still can’t think of buying anything else but Head and Shoulders but he left me his coconut scented one that reminds me of him that I’m probably gonna save for special occasions or when I miss him really bad.

  262. Clarissa Song says:

    Hi Karen! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you and baby are doing well. My current favourite palette has got to be Smashbox’s For 25 Years Our Lips Have Been Sealed!

    Have you ever made pizza crust from scratch? Yes. It’s just like bread dough.

    Favorite high-end makeup brand? I’m not really a high-end person. Although I’d like to try some Tom Ford and CHarlotte Tilbury eye shadows and there’s a specific Dior compact I keep lusting after.

    Whatโ€™s your hair: curly, straight or wavy? Wavy, although it’s more on the frizzy side.

    My friend and I have long said that the turtle is our token and we buy each other turtle tchotchkes whenever either of us goes on a trip. Seriously, this has been going on for like 10 years.
    Whatโ€™s your current favorite palette?
    I’ve been using Naked On the Run a lot lately. I think because it’s kind of a workhorse palette. Very practical.

    My favorite high end brand is NARS – I have had excellent results with every one of their products I’ve tried! My favorites are the Audacious lipsticks and dual intensity shadows and blushes. My favorite palette right now is using the Viseart Dark Mattes and Editorial Brights palettes in tandem. Don’t let the uninspiring packaging (which is why I waited so long to try them) fool you! Just got the Natasha Denona palettes though, so I may change my current favorite…!

    I do make pizza dough by hand. There is nothing like it!!

  311. Lena says:

    I’ve planted an oak tree when I was a kid

  312. Alicee says:

    I’ve really been loving the Anastasia Self-Made Palette and using a few shades for my crease from Naked Smoky.

  313. Annie says:

    Hey Karen! Happy Sunday ๐Ÿ™‚

    My current favorite palette is Anastasia Beverly Hills Artist Palette. It is just stunning. Great neutrals, great fall colors, great fun spring/summer colors. It is so versatile and fun! I think it’s great for any skin color. Favorite high end makeup brand?? Now that’s a toughie…I don’t know if I’ve really experienced or delved into the world of super high end makeup, but if I had to choose, I’d probably say YSL. I own only one of their eye shadow palettes but it is definitely one of my all time favs!

    Thanks Karen!

  314. rachel says:

    my current favorite palette is the Urban Decay Get Baked Eye Kit. It was a “summer” kit but I love the gold shades with a bold eyeliner and red lip.

  315. Chris says:

    My hair is wavy if air-dried, and straight if a blow dryer is used. You look amazing!

  316. Rayshawn says:

    I have Curly hair

  317. Wehaf says:

    I have wavy hair, bordering on curly, and right now I need a haircut!

  318. Donna L says:

    I have made pizza with a pre-made crust.

  319. Ren says:

    My hair’s pretty wavy. In high school I was so jealous of all the girls with stick-straight hair and spent so much time with the flat iron hoping to achieve the same look. After years of disappointment and frustration (like spending an hour on my hair only to walk outside and have it frizz up and become instantly wavy again), I finally came to love my hair type. I realized that I almost have the best of both wordsโ€”I can straighten my hair if I want to (depending on the weather, of course), but also add curls that will hold. I think most girls go through a hair-envy stage, but at the end of the day, you gotta learn to love what you have!

  320. Chelsea says:

    I’ve definitely planted trees! We used to do it with my dad every year, they live in the middle of the woods.

  321. Lisa Jagodzinski says:

    I have planted a couple trees in my days! I love sephora makeup it is by far the best makeup store around! My hair looks pretty much the same as high school except a lil shorter and now I have to dye it because gray hairs

  322. Hillary says:

    My favorite high end makeup brand is Chanel with YSL at a close second. I love and wear Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua foundation and Le Volume mascara. But I really love YSL for their lip products and packaging – so pretty!! ๐Ÿ˜

  323. Mars says:

    I bet you are sooo over being pregnant right now!!! I remember those times… I wish you the best delivery! It is always such an incredible moment!
    We moved to our first house about a year ago, and planted an apple tree. It doesn’t have any fruits yet, and probably won’t for a while, but I wanted our kids to see it grow, the same way they’ll grow in this house.
    Oh, and although I’m Asian, I have wavy/curly/voluminous/never look the same hair!!! I don’t know how or where it comes from! It’s a pain to style, and I’ve struggled with it my whole life. Now I straighten it so it’s more manageable.

  324. Joyce says:

    I have planted a tree and am looking forward to doing it again ๐Ÿ™‚

  325. Leah says:

    My family and I used to plant trees every year when I was a kid. At their house, we still have fruit trees including plums, apples, and pears and we harvest them yearly. Hope your final stretch of the pregnancy is going well! Congrats on baby girl!

  326. Jessica says:

    Oooh! Can’t wait to hear an update!! So exciting!!! Can’t wait to see pictures!!
    My fave right now is the new too-faced heart chocolate palette! It smells soooooo sooo good!!!

  327. Ondina says:

    My hair is straight with the very slightest wave at the ends due to my cut.

  328. em says:

    my hair is straight. i’ve tried curly and wavy before and they were both not good ideas

  329. Sarah W says:

    Good luck, Karen! and I used to make pizza crust from scratch all the time, but I’ve been lazy lately…I have a crispy recipe and a more traditional chewy recipe

  330. Kalli Melis says:

    I’ve made pizza crust from scratch many times, it’s a bit time-consuming but so worth it in the end.

  331. deanna says:

    My favorite pizza topping is pepperoni. I can eat pizza for any meal of the day. Yum!

  332. Robyn Bellefleur says:

    My hair is curly and I am always straightening it when all my friends suggest I leave it curly, but it is such a chore dealing with my frizzies.

  333. Andrea Woodard says:

    I grew up in New York City, I believe New York makes the best pizza. I believe that any state you are in, you can always find at least one pizza place that makes a great NY PIZZA.

  334. Chrissy R. says:

    So excited for your new baby! My little peanut was 12 days overdue despite a lot of walking and spicy food! Wishing you a very smooth labor and delivery and she will be here before you know it!

    Have a great week!

  346. Leah says:

    Have you tried Ilia lipstick? They are so buttery and last a long time!

  347. Lisa C says:

  357. Jenny S says:

    We planted a tree at my elementary school in 3rd grade. I got a chance to dig and made it into the newspaper! I’d love to plant an apple tree in our yard.

    my hair is wavy

  360. heather w says:

    My hair naturally has a slight wave to it. I can blow dry it straight easily, or scrunch it for beach waves. I’ve been told by hairdressers that I have thin hair, but a lot of it.

  361. Lemonberry says:

    I just got one of those cards that has seeds in it and I am super excited to plant it in the spring!

  366. Cui says:

    My Favorite high end brand is Tom Fords. Can not wait to meet the little one soon! So excited for you!

  367. Monica says:

    I’ve made pizza crust from scratch before and it was pretty good! I could never make a perfect circle though so I end up poking and prodding it into a semi-squarish shape with uneven thickness. Good if you enjoy crust, not so good if you are a thin-crust person. I love baking bread in general but it’s very time consuming so I only do it two or three times a year.

  368. Nicole says:

    Today is a friend’s due-date as well, and no baby yet from her! Hope your little one arrives soon!

  369. Jamie says:

    I’m definitely more into the mid range brands of makeup, the high end ones don’t have the bright colors that I like.

  370. Mylinda says:

    I have never planted a tree. At least not anything that will ever grow into a tree. With the exception of bean or mongo sprouts planted for classroom activities as a child, the only thing I ever remember planting is a “mayana” cutting that my grandmother helped me plant. If you know what a mayana is, I think it doesn’t become a tree. And anything else I’ve ever tried to buy when I moved to the US simply didn’t make it past the cold winters in PA. I try mostly herbs or tiny potted flowers. I had a basil plant that lasted almost half a year! But like everything else, it didn’t survive beyond winter. But a tree, no.

    I can’t to see your baby pictures! If you’ll be sharing, that is. Congratulations on your new arrival!

  371. Pam H. says:

    I have curly hair. I like it because it has personality.

    I always try to enter these!
    When we first moved into our house a decade ago,
    With my mom my brother helped plant a pear, orange, fig tree.
    I joined in for planting a lemon plant
    It no longer exists ๐Ÿ™ Our soil was too hard but maynee the lemons from that tree were SO SWEET ๐Ÿ™‚

  392. Tracy says:

    My hair is straight but it does have a slight wave to it if it dries naturally. Thanks for the contest!

  393. Shelby says:

    I jumped right on the UD x Gwen bandwagon, and I’ve been using that palette almost every day.

    I don’t have a lucky charm, but I do wish you best of luck and a happy and safe delivery of BG! Lots of love!

    Good luck, Karen! BG is taking her sweet time! And poor Tabs! ๐Ÿ™

    I know many don’t like visiting hot and humid vacation spots because of bad hair days; I gotta say, my beach hair is ON FLEEK, tho. The hot and humid (+ ocean) is great for my hair, unbelievably! If I had known, I woulda stopped fighting my coarse thick horse tail stuff and moved to hot & humid sooner. lol…

    *sigh* my favorite palette was MAC’s Fabulous Felines in “Burmese.”

  396. Alyssa says:

    Can’t wait until Baby Girl comes! Personally, my go to pallet is the OG Chocolate bar pallet! Perfect colorful and neutral colors and it’s also a sentimental gift since my boyfriend got it for me for my birthday last year.

  397. Ashley M says:

    Hiii! I love Sephora & always get my Kat von D foundation there ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the shot!!

  399. Kat says:

    Wavy hair. You are glowing!

  400. Mel says:

    I’ve always told my hairdresser that my hair is bisexual! LOL. Wavy sometimes, straight sometimes it can’t make up its mind!

  401. wen budro says:

    I have planted a tree before. I used to buy living Christmas trees and then plant them outside after the holidays.

  402. Michelle says:

    Favorite high end make up is shiseido and hour glass (the primer is amazing!)

  403. Kiki says:

    Looking good with the baby bump girl! Have a safe delivery ๐Ÿ˜˜

  404. Jonirae says:

    Hii ๐Ÿ˜Š You’re so adorable, and really getting close, too! Make sure you give some extra love to tabs, he might have a wave of jealousy rushing over him soon!! ๐Ÿ˜˜

    So I was actually just thinking of this today: my favorite high end brand has to be Chanel, mostly because their lipsticks wear like a DREAM for me! The rouge coco’s are my favorite, and two of them are at the top of my favs list, and have been for awhile. They wear so beautifully, comfortable and natural (meaning not overtly makeup-looking), and they last all day! I don’t have a lot of other stuff from their beauty line because unfortunately my eyes are too big for my wallet! Same with Tom Ford, I have on lipstick of his and it’s lovely, but everything else is out of my range… including his gorgeous eyeshadow quads… I want honeymoon so badly! (and that answers your palette question! ๐Ÿ˜Š)

  405. Veronika Lugo says:

    I have planted a tree, when I was little, a cherry. I made a pizza crust from scratch, it was a disaster. I don’t have a favorite brand, I’m almost 40, but just getting into the make up, a friend of mine is helping :),
    Wishing you a safe labor and healthy baby

  406. Jonirae says:

    Oh!! I almost forgot… I sort of accidentally fell into a testing spree of Dior skincare yesterday… and then fell completely head over heels in love with their dreamskin. Until I found out how much it costs per ounce. ouch. Time to start saving! ๐Ÿ˜

  407. Aury says:

    My hair is naturally wavy!!

  408. Amanda P says:

    My hair is slightly wavy but I always straighten it! I am loving Kat Von D’s liquid lipsticks right now! Thanks so much ๐Ÿ™‚

  410. Cynthia Richardson says:

    Every year I plant 3 or 4 new trees around my yard. I get a discount on them through my electric company. Many of then even live.

  411. Natasha says:

    Just turned 25 with a quarter life crisis at the moment. I don’t like when people don’t take me seriously but I also hate feeling oldddddd. Like wow, suddenly I am not part of those cool kids anymore. The horrifying moment when I realized I am /supposedly/ an adult now. But heck, I still can’t handle things properly sometimes and need to find an older adult, someone who has been successfully adulting, an adultier(?) adult, to take care of the mess I made. I didn’t know it would be this terrifying? I need Peterpan to take me to the Neverland…ha ha ha. ๐Ÿ™ *cries a bucket of tears*

  412. Tracey E. says:

    Best wishes, Karen. Thoughts are with you and your husband (and Tabs!) as you get set to welcome your beautiful girl.

    My fave high end makeup brand is Bobbi Brown and Charlotte Tilbury with a growing love for Chanel and Tom Ford.

  413. Isabel V says:

    You looks absolutely adorable in that little video! Glad to see that you and Baby Girl are already going on some Sephora shopping trips. She’s going to be a pro in no time!

    As for my favorite high-end makeup brands, I think it’s a tie between theBalm (I’m addicted to their blushes) and Kat Von D for her lippies. I would totally love to plant a tree, by the way! That is going on my list of life goals.

  414. Jasmine R says:

    I have made homemade pizza crust, I so yummy ๐Ÿ™‚

    YAASSS Leo got his #Oscar.. thanks for contest and best wishes to you and your BG! Very curious on what name you choose!

  416. Melissa says:

    You look so cute Karen! I hope you have a smooth and easy delivery. Don’t worry, after you hold baby girl in your arms, you won’t remember the bad stuff.

  417. Emily L says:

    My hair is wavy, but I’ve always been envious of people with straight hair!

  418. Melissa says:

    So excited to meet baby girl! My hair is straight, but with a slight wave at the ends.

  419. Lesley says:

    I have planted a tree, and made pizza dough from scratch (it’s not hard) – any my hair is curly, with a mind of its own.

  420. Deniz says:

    I’ve made pizza twice last year. While it wasn’t perfect it was fun. Hope to get better each time. Love pizza!

  423. Stacey says:

    My hair is a sad mix of all three, it’s curly and wavy and straight all in one shot, and not in a glorious way.

  424. Charlotte says:

    I am so excited for you! Ive been watching your youtube videos and enjoying them a lot, too ๐Ÿ™‚

  425. Amanda says:

    My hair is mostly straight…most of the time. Any updates on baby? It’s so exciting!

  426. Aenea says:

    I’ve never made a pizza from scratch.

  427. NFJ says:

    My fave palette right now is one that I don’t think they are selling anywhere on the planet! I got it in a special offer from a mega-discount makeup site and have to admit just liked the pretty leopard spot case it’s in.
    The eye shadows have turned out the be some of the best I’ve ever used. The palette is called The BIG CAT Eye Palette by Famous By Sue Moxley Cosmetics. I was able to get the Zebra complete palette at the same time but I tried to find more later and found out the company is is not making makeup anymore (some lip gloss I guess). Sue Moxley is a TV presenter in the UK so I doubt you’ll find her things in the US but she does have a website with makeup brushes and tips. It was a silly purchase (for the cases alone) but they turned out to be dreams come true!

  428. Lauren says:

    You are so flipping cute! I love how you’re ready to pop and you look immaculate!!

    I planted a tree when I was a kid in my parents back yard. Every day I looked to see if the tree was there, and I gave up when it never grew. These days, my tree has grown to an apple tree, and I still get scolded in the summer how the squirrels ruin my Dad’s lawn by leaving apples everywhere!

    It’s leap year day…is BG coming tody?!?! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  429. Astrild says:

    Cannot wait for the Baby Girl!!!

    Right now my most used palette is the UD Naked 2. I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite, but surprisingly, I tend to gravitate to that one all the time I wear eyeshadow.

    I die for NARS makeup. I don’t know if it’s considered a high-end makeup brand or mid-range but for me it’s definetely high-end.

  430. Emily says:

    Heya Karen,

    I actually found this giveaway after reading your latest post by Tabs – I absolutely love his little anicdotes! I’ve recently adopting a cat myself, tabby but with white paws, called Murphy…….well he was originally called Mala but then surprised me by actually being a little boy!

    I’m sure our little fur babies would get on very well, although I think Mr Tabs is more managerial whereas Murphy is a little bit of a poser!

    I’ve watched your bump grow for a few months now and I am so excited for you, Congratulations! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Much love, all the way from a very rainy United Kingdon <3
    Emily xxxxx

  431. Stephanie Hartman says:

    I have naturally wavy, frizzy hair. I can’t let it air dry it looks a hot mess if I do and I always have to use a curling iron or straightener to style.

  432. Kim says:

    Sending you good vibes! I hope all is well and you’re feeling as comfortable as possible! ๐Ÿ™‚

  433. Fran says:

    Karen, I hope that BG has arrived happily by the time I’m writing this!

    I haven’t bought a lot of makeup from luxury brands. But I love my Tom Ford lipsticks. They’re beautiful, comfortable, and easy to apply and touch up. I like the Lips & Boys size, because I have so many different colors of lipstick that it’s hard to use one up!

    Of “mid-range” brands, Make Up For Ever is my favorite for color cosmetics — just adore their Artist Shadows/blushes (which I also use for contour), and their lipsticks are great except for the fragrance. Which is why I can’t wear their foundations. IT Cosmetics is my favorite for base products and concealers; Hourglass is my favorite for powders, love their blushes, too.

    My hair was poker-straight, lank and do-nothing until I was in my 40s; then it became very slightly wavy, which means I can do a bit more with it, but have to contend with frizziness — it tries to turn itself into a giant puffball.

    I haven’t made pizza crust from scratch, but my son does. He make The. Best. Pizza. Ever.

  434. Gail says:

    My favorite pizza dough is from Smitten Kitchen – love her blog – as much as yours – i make the Lazy Pizza dough – the best ever

  435. EMG says:

    Greetings from the Phils, I hope all is well with the baby and Tabs!

    My favorite palette at the moment is Makeup Revolution’s Blush Palette. Budget, but nicely pigmented. I’m currently using the Golden Sugar and Sugar and Spice ones.

    I have straight, baby-fine hair and would love to own a Tom Ford lipstick someday. Reasons? The line has stunning lip colors and because I have a huge crush on TF (haha).

  436. kellly says:

    I’ve planted some trees but never have made pizza crust from scratch and doubt I ever will. Anything that requires flour flying all over is too much for me. Flour in a cup and then in a bowl is ok, but not on my countertops!
    My hair is straight-straight-straight with little in the way of body (sigh).
    And that’s all I can remember of the questions.
    GOOD LUCK with the upcoming baby girl whenever she decides to make her grand entrance!!

  437. Lorraine says:

    I have planted one little tree in my life – and it was a plumtree.
    I always make pizza crust from scratch, i think it tastes the best ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I have curly hair, some days more than others!

    Wishing you good luck with the baby girl whenever she arrives.

  441. Jae says:

    I over did it for my son’s 9th birthday over the weekend and have been plagued with migraines. ๐Ÿ™ We recently bought this pizza maker from Williams Sonoma and it’s been a game changer in our house. Homemade pizza is THE best!

    My favorite palette these days is the gwen stefani eyeshadow palette.

  446. Stephanie Z. says:

    My good luck charm is a $2 bill that my dad gave me. He believes that it’s so I am never without money and for me it’s more of a little piece of him that I can carry around with me wherever I go.

    I have a $1 bill that I was given by a family friend as a teenager that is scribbled on with orange marker. iI is all frayed at the edges but I carry it around for thew same reason Stephanie Z. carries her $2 bill!
    Excited for your family!

    Hope labor is quick and as painless as possible! You look adorable! Wishing you all the best!! And thanks for the chance to win a trip to Sephora!!

    I am loving urban decay naked basics 2. It is just so lovely and easy to tote around!

  452. marlena says:

    My favorite high-end brand at the moment is Surratt!

  453. ashley says:

    I am loving the MAC-nificent me palette — I love the mix of warm and cool tones and different finishes, and have found my new go-to shade to bring out the green in my hazel eyes (“sable”).

  454. Jessica S says:

    I have never planted a tree that I can remember but I work for a winery and we got to plant vines two years ago in a new vineyard that we bought which was really cool!

  455. Lisa says:

    my hair is wavy, and you’d think i’d know how to tame it by now, but i don’t!

    my favorite palette right now is the tartelette palette – the original. it’s not new, but it’s new to me, and i’m loving that i can use any colors in it (or even, like, five of ’em) and still have a totally work-appropriate look. yay for mattes!

  456. Monika says:

    OMG Karen, you’re so cute in that Harry Potter style moving photo! I mostly came here to comment on how wonderful you look, but I’ll enter the giveaway, too. I have naturally curly hair that I wear both curly and straight mostly depending on the season since getting a blowout to last is way easier in the cold, dry winter rather than the warm, humid summer in MA =P

    Hey Karen,

    Love your blog (I’m sure everyone tells you that). Honestly, its perfect mix of information and fun…and some cool pics!
    Good luck for your big day ๐Ÿ™‚
    I am planning to get a urban decay – Naked pallet so I guess that’s my favorite even before using it!
    And I love baking pizza from scratch…so many things to do with crust and of course toppings ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ooh and I did just moved to SLC from India but if I have to move again I will move to Cairns (Blue Waters :-*)

    Good luck with blog n baby!
    Stay blessed.

  460. annalisa says:

    my hair is curly, curly, curly!

  461. Kim says:

    Congratulations! I just discovered your site, so a little late to the party. Good luck with baby girl! I have 3 boys and I’ll tell you time flies. Everyone says it, but its absolutely true. Make time to do things that make memories. When they’re tiny they forget so easily. Biggest make up challenge? Finding the right color lipstick.

  462. Jordan says:

    I’m still loving the Too Faced Bon Bons palette.

  463. Nadia says:

    My hair is wavy and I planted a tree when I visited maxico.

  464. Andrea Darst says:

    My hair is painfully straight and thick! Like, it won’t hold a curl for long, which severely limits what I’m able to do with it. Best of luck with BG!!

  465. Yao says:

    My favorite high end makeup brand is Chanel, even though I only own a lipstick from them.

    Hope the baby comes soon!

  466. Irene says:

    My hair is terribly curly which I hate…

  467. Stacy Z says:

    Too Faced Original Chocolate Palette is my favorite ๐Ÿ™‚

  468. Paula says:

    You look so cute!! I love making homemade pizza and it starts with a great crust and yes I do make my own. Lately we have been obsessed with a homemade deep dish pizza pepperoni, homemade sausage, peppers, and onions! I have made it once a week for the last 3 weeks!! Totally Obsessed!

  469. estie says:

    good luck at the hospital! mm, i haven’t made pizza crust before but have been craving homemade pizza.

  470. Clemence says:

    Haven’t planted a tree before, but one day in the future for sure!

  471. Deanna says:

    I just bought the Tarte Energy Noir palette & love it! But top palette is still my Laura Mercier Eye Artist palette (which your original swatches convinced me to buy last year when I googled swatches!)

  472. Annalee says:

    I’m loving Make Up For Ever! The eyeshadows and the plexi gloss!

    In the Canadian city I’m from, all first graders plant a tree on Earth Day. Mine was a little pine tree and it’s still growing strong in my parents’ backyard.

  475. Tosha H says:

    My hair is wavy, curly and straight all at the same time, and a major PITA lol

    As far as eyeshadow palettes go my favorite would be the Sleek Arabian Nights, it’s really stunning and unique
