Win a Sephora E-GIFT CARD

Pray for Paris Good morning, my sweet friend, wherever you are. Today my heart is with the thoughtful, kind, wonderful people of France. I’m overwhelmed by the events in Paris last night. I know that many of you who visit the blog and have for many years are from Paris and other parts of France, and I wish I could reach out and pull you into a huge hug right now.

You are loved very much, and people all around the world, including this small corner of Novato, California, have you in their thoughts and prayers.

I almost cancelled the giveaway this morning because it just didn’t feel right, but I don’t think anything really does right now. I hope something about it puts a smile on someone’s face.


Tabs and I are still waking up, so I’m going to keep this short. Thank you as always for stopping by on your journey, my friend. I hope you have a good weekend, whatever you’re up to, and I’ll talk to you soon.

  5. Laura says:

    First of all, we are praying for Paris from Atlanta, Ga. Cinnamon Sugar is my favorite spice, we use it on toast and baked apples year-round. I do believe this would also be a great nail polish color for a shimmery fall metallic gold paired with a glittery top coat. πŸ™‚

  6. April says:

    I’ve always wanted to create a nail Polish called Confident πŸ™‚

  7. Sanda Remakus says:

    Hi Karen,
    I prefer apply a cream eyeshadow as a base layer, then apply a layer of matte eyeshadow for makeup every day, or finish with sparkling eyeshadow for evening makeup.
    Thank you ^^

  10. Preena says:

    I feel so sad for the people of France right now…

  11. Andrea says:

    It’s so sad what is happening in Paris and all around the world.
    It’s even more sad that I have become numb to these types of news and that nothing shocks me anymore. I would like to think that I’m not a bad person, but it’s just so much is happening, nothing surprises me anymore.
    It’s so sad, and I pray that all this violence stops – not just in Paris, but world wide, because everyone deserves to be happy and no one deserves to live in fear.

    Sorry that got serious, hope everyone is having a lovely Saturday.

  12. Melissa says:

    I am so obsessed with makeup right now it’s ridiculous! This Sephora sale is driving me nuts! I had set out a list of certain things I wanted to buy so I wouldn’t overspend…. I ended up buying a lot more than I had intended! Thank you so much for your constant inspiration πŸ’•πŸ’• #prayforworld

    Animal by-product allergies make it that much harder to find make-up, but it is still so worth it for those pretty colors!

    Hi karen, hope you are having a great weekend. Hope your pregnancy is going well. Is your skin care routine changing much with the pregnancy? I never paid any attention during my first but with my daughter (2nd pregnancy), I got a little oilier than usual, through my t-zone and cheeks even. Then after she was born, I had a dry patch on the left side of my forehead, it flares up from time to time if I don’t keep a good moisturizer on it weekly.

  27. Sara P. says:

    Have a good weekend!

    it’s so impossible to choose, but my favorite spice is probably cumin – it’s so versatile.

  60. Cory says:

    My heart is very much with the people of France right now…
    I don’t understand how people can be so violent yet consider themselves to be completely & devoutly religious… Where are their morals? Unless they are a true psychopath, each person has a very real moral compass. We all know the difference between right & wrong…

  61. carol clark says:

  64. FIONA says:

    I abso-damn-lutely love nutmeg. Maybe it’s just the delicious foods it normally goes with (custard, egg nog, pie…) or maybe I actually just find the flavor delectable. Either way, or maybe a combination of both, it’s starting nutmeg season and I couldn’t be happier.

    Love ginger! I also am so sad for the people in Paris.

  71. bearby says:

    Hi Karen,

    As sad as it sounds, I don’t look good with any eyeshadow colours. I have tried matte/shimmer, dark/light, expensive brands/drugstore brands. I am giving up! On the possible side, it is one of the areas that I don’t have to spend too much money on. A palette will last me forever.


  72. Janetta says:

    I love matte eyeshadows! They give a chic look imo.

  73. Aeris says:

    I love spices in general but if I have to choose, I’d say cardamom and ginger!

  92. Sam says:

    My favorite spice (along with many other people, I saw) is cinnamon!!!

  97. Tracey E. says:

    For me today, the noble are those who came to the aid of people affected by the gruesome attacks in Paris: from those who provided shelter, who aided the injured, helped people to safety, connected people to confirm their safety, provided dignity to those fatally wounded, to those who will continue to go about their lives, not letting evil organize their activities.

  98. Mary W says:

    Name for nail polish – My Heart Bleeds For Paris. Fits the mood today.

  102. Tatiana says:

    I am so saddened and dismayed by the events in Paris. I pray for a world without violence, where there is respect for all our differences.

    I looked up the definition for noble to make sure I got it right. While my husband doesn’t fit the first definition, he is definitely the embodiment of the second one. And I am one lucky gal, to have this really great guy in my life.

    I’ve never worn a disguise, but I’ve indulged myself in fantasizing about how I’d try to pull one off if I was a famous celebrity and wanted to go out without being recognized.

  104. Lydia says:

    I like eye-shadow that is just a little bit shimmery.

  105. Kait says:

    I like mattes mostly but shimmery/metallic finishes on the lid.

  106. Anne Tran says:

    I really really REALLY miss painting my nails and having long nails. Since I’m a nursing student, we’re not allowed to have nail polish on, long nails, false nails or perfume on for that matter.

    I’m a therapist and my client rescheduled our usual session to Saturday mornings. At first I was annoyed but after I saw improvement in today’s session, I was proud that I played a role in their improvement. Atrocities like what happened in France are evil.

    Seattle green a in Emerald city.

    I have a confession: I don’t like Pumpkin Spice-ANYTHING! I tried to, I really did, but it’s just not my thing. For a fall drink, I prefer Cinnamon Spice or something along those lines. Good luck everyone!

    Viva la France. I stand with France. Paris IS the most beautiful city in the world and tonight the Eiffel Tower is dark in mourning. My heart aches yet again, for the French. Je suis Charlie. Saw a car today here in the East Bay, San Ramon, with one of those little USA flag things attached and flying from its window. Wish I had a USA and a French flag with which to bedeck my car. Viva la France! We are with you!

    My favourite eyeshadow finish are the Veluxe Pearl ones from MAC. I often don’t have time for complicated eye makeup, so I like how the colour shifts on them to make it a little more interesting if I have time to only apply one colour of shadow.

    I love cardamom! Cardamom in ice cream, cookies or lattes is my favourite.

  206. Meg says:

    My favorite eyeshadow formulas are Kat Von D and MUFE. I can’t pick just one. I also can’t pick one finish because I love them all! lol

    Wasabi would be a great name for a nail polish. Heck, you could do an entire sushi themed line: salmon, edamame, nori, black sesame, sake, pickled ginger, etc. Incidentally, fresh or candied ginger is my favorite seasoning ever.

    Eternal Sunshine of the Departed! Love both those movies.

    K & T – My brother Ira, his wife Jody & my 3 awesome nephews live in Pittsburgh. This year I discovered a company – Steel City Cotton Works. They make the softest tees ever!!!

Hope you have found something comfy to wear w the changing weather. Have a good week!

  214. Metta says:

    Being Thai I love any spice as long as it’s so spicy you pass outπŸ˜‚ But I use a lot of chili peppers and grind them down in a mortar and pestle. Can’t do the flakes or powder.

  215. I returned the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette today, I’d been on the fence but in the end it just didn’t make sense to keep for the two blushes.

  324. Sus says:

    definitely cumin!

  366. Hollie says:

    First, I want to say God bless all those in Paris who have been affected by yet, another inhumane tragedy. I just cannot wrap my mind around how these “people” think…. My favorite spice is garlic. I don’t care what I’m eating but if I add garlic, it’s 10 times better!!!

  367. Kelly says:

    Hey Karen! Hmm, if I combined two of my favorite movies, the title might be “500 Days Of Elf”. I must say, I watch Elf at least three times a year (once in July, at least twice in November/December), but I’m not sure about 500 days of it! I also love 500 Days of Summer, it’s such a great movie and one of the best interpretations of love and relationships I’ve seen. πŸ™‚

    i love sephora i love the makeup they have and love the birthday freebies/etc.

  381. gabby says:

    My favorite spice is cumin. Hands down, it just adds that something to anything. I use it on soups and meat dishes. It’s kinda of stinky but the taste is amazing

  382. Dawn says:

    My favourite spice is cinnamon

  383. Ida says:

    Once upon a time, Helena Rubenstein (which I can’t in the US anyway :'( ) had a liquid to powder eyeshadow. It was a little tube, you squeezed it out, it dried on your lid and lasted long without creasing. You couldn’t really blend it, but it lasted long and it was fun to put on.

    I don’t know it is my favorite eyeshadow formula, but I liked it a lot.

  384. TC says:

  393. Andrea says:

    A good name for a nail polish would be Nailed It. haha Not sure what color it would be though. πŸ™‚

  394. Ame says:

    Shimmery powder. MUFE Iridescent and Metallic seem to be clear winners right now. I used to love Cargo but they changed theirs considerably. I am a little miffed at MUFE right not for not properly labeling the Diamond line though — the glitterbombs that they are just cut the crap out of my eye. Never. Again.

  395. Daisy says:

    I thought of a few nail polish names:

    Paradise Breeze
    Fun in the Sun
    Bold and Beautiful

    Favourite spice, very tough but I love star anise to smell and look at, while All spice is an amazing combination of clove and cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper!

  429. Julie Simpson says:

    My condolences to our ally and friends . I am a savory person my fav is black fresh ground pepper rosemary garlic more so that flavor profile. If my honey is coming over I put a. Little pot of water with vanilla and cinnamon on and let it simmer. Does wonders. Matte shadows are all I wear creme shadows tend to date you unless you’re an expert.

  430. Stephanie says:

    Sneaking in that late night comment like a ninja!

    Nail polish: La vie en rose

  435. Linda says:

    The news from Paris is terrible and disheartening. I’ve been focusing on French companies (Guerlain cosmetics, Dior perfume, Hermes scarves) – not much, but it keeps my mind on them while reminding me of all their great contributions.

    My favorite spice is cinnamon (looks like I’m not alone there). It reminds me of fall and is so delish (I like adding it along with some chopped apples into my oatmeal on cold morning).

  436. Tosha H says:

    It’s storming like crazy here, I love it!

  437. Natalie says:

    How about “The Bourne Ever After”. I love the Bourne Ultimatum and Ever After.

  438. Kiana says:

    I’d love to name nail polishes full-time, but I can pretend for now! I’d go for “Pom-Pomegranate Red” or “Royal Crush” for a deep purple color!

  439. Ree says:

    I love nutmeg <3

  440. Patti says:

    Been dying to try one of those Becca highlighters but they’re just so expensive!

  441. Rina Louise says:

    I’m so happy Glenn is alive on TWD. It’d be cool if Maggie could get a quick holiday makeover at Sephora in Alexandria. But it is the zombie-acocolypse after all! lol

  442. Letty Seidl says:

    Wow Karen, that’s all I can say. I came upon this page by accident. I don’t even know how and hope I’ll be able to locate it again. I’ve only recently gotten into makeup. I was raising four kids and working so my life was full. Now everyone is gone and I find myself lost. I used to volunteer everywhere because of my kids. Where they went, I went so it was a little difficult when all of a sudden I was at home, in a new city all alone. And a chronic illness to boot. I’m homebound and don’t really leave the house unless I have a doctor’s appointment or I visit my daughter that lives 3 blocks over. Anyway, I have really gotten into makeup and purchase as much as I can whenever I can. I watch youtube everyday. It makes me happy. Makeup makes me happy. Especially when I get a box in the mail that’s full of product because of a 50% off sale. Happy, happy happy. I’ve been thinking about starting my own beauty blog for mature women and mature skin but I had never actually looked into it seriously enough to search all the blogs out there. Your’s is the first and I have to say, it’s awesome. I don’t think I could ever do what you do. But I am very grateful that I found it because you a new loyal follower. Any advise would be greatly appreciated but that’s not why I’m in love with your page so no worries. I’ll just read and watch your video’s. By the way, Mac is my favorite cosmetic brand too. Keep doing what your doing. You’re awesome. I’m so sorry this was so long and I don’t even know if I’m going to be able to post this correctly because like I said before, I’m a major newbie. You may have to read this in sections. Lol. I noticed you asked for a URL and I have no idea what that is so I’m sorry if for screwing up that part.
