I finally got over my Justin Bieber fever only to catch a bout of MAC To The Beach (GREAT!).


Sorry, I can’t stop saying Justin Bieber fever. πŸ™‚

(Justin Bieber fever, Justin Bieber fever, Justin Bieber fever…)

MAC’s newest summer collection doesn’t have anything to do with teenage Canadian pop stars, but it has been sparking fevers here at MBB headquarters.

And the fever’s spreading fast! If you comment on this weekend’s giveaway, you might catch it, too.

The prize

One lucky lady will win MAC Hipness Blush, a gorgeous coral powder blush in limited edition packaging from the MAC To The Beach collection (a $19 value).

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. I couldn’t resist sharing pics of my new hair! I got a cut AND color (went a little lighter with the highlights since it’s summer). The stylist didn’t take much off the length and mostly just cleaned up the layers.

OH! Bay Area girls (and guys), if you’re looking for a wonderful stylist and can make it to Marin, Bishlam at Salon B in San Rafael is a miracle worker, especially if you have unruly or curly hair (like moi).

    Love the new hair! The contrasts are just right. I recently made a major change in my own hairstyle, cutting it into a VERY short pixie cut. I figured I had to try that style at least once in my life, so gathered my strength and went for it. The worst, I decided, was that it would be horrible and I’d run screaming from the room, and I was willing to take the risk, knowing that it would be only a matter of time before it grew out. And guess what? It looks great! AND it’s so easy to care for and I’ve received so many compliments that I’ll probably stay with the cut for years to come. What a great reminder that sometimes we just need to face our fears and jump anyway.

    I’d have to say that my TV guilty pleasure is a comedy on ABC called Modern Family. It’s just your typical family of the 21st century – a gay couple with an adopted Vietnamese girl (named Lily), a older man re-married to a younger Columbian bombshell with a cute but very mature 8 year old son, and a “normal” family (a dad, mom, teenager, tween, and 8 year old boy). These three families are all related, and you can imagine what they go through together!

    My secret T.V. guilty pleasure is Cougar Town…hate the name, but once I got over that, it is funniest show ever…like Friends, but all grown up.

    I am killing time right now. I put too much lotion on after my shower and I’m all “gooey” so I am waiting for it to absorb. I can’t wait until this collection comes out!

  331. Patrice says:

    Coral is a universal color that looks great on everyone. I like coral because pink and orange don’t work well on my slightly olive skin. MAC products are terrific. What a great giveaway!

  332. Angela says:

    I love the reddish highlights! I’ve always wanted to get something similar, but never get around to it. Also, my dog is sitting on my lap and its making it hard to go through my blogs!!!

  368. Janelle says:

    I went to Bay to Breakers this weekend. The weather was dreary and cloudy and I was FREEZING in my costume! But it was fun seeing the other costumes and dancing around on the streets of SF. There was a Jersey Shore float where they were throwing beer and had confetti canons! It was amazing.

  369. Sandoz says:

    I have to say, I just don’t get the Justin Bieber madness. I have friends who think he’s adorable & so talented… but I just can’t get on board.

    Also, every time I read your blog & see Tabs I smile. He is the cutest thing–unlike my lukewarm acknowledgement of Mr. Bieber, I am ready & willing to be an official member of the “I Heart Tabs” fan club!

  370. Kristina says:


  371. Diane says:

    I don’t know what to do with my life. i need a job =/

  372. Melody says:

    .. trying to pack my toiletries/makeup bag for a one month overseas trip — too many favourites to bring with me on my travels! Doesn’t help that I need to tailor my makeup for a beach wedding I’m in :p

  374. Amber says:

  376. Kristy says:

    I love the Garnier deep conditioner. It smells great and keeps my hair so soft!

  377. Elaine says:

  381. DanielleO says:

    I’m a sucker for special packaging πŸ™‚

  382. layla says:

  385. Heather says:

    Love the new do!
    I got a haircut today too. I asked the stylist to chop off 4 inches or so so that my layers would just hit my collarbone. The stylist looked at me like “What? So short?!”. Lol, I’m so glad I asked for shorter hair b/c it feels so light and summery now!

  386. Bonnie says:

    Cute hair!

    I had to take off an entire row of blanket I knitted because I messed up somewhere and I don’t know where. πŸ™

  388. Mika chan says:

    I never win anything, but I WANT IT I WANT IT I WANT IT! lol

  389. Lena says:

    Hey!!! I just wanted to say that your attitude is so fresh, spontaneous and self-confident that I find you really stand out from other bloggers. I wouldn’t even define you as a blogger, you give the feeling of a friend or neighbour like you say. It’s good to have a different type than everybody else after all!! Take care!!!!

  390. karen c says:

    I need to get a haircut! my hair is sooo long now. I think I want to get it cut like amanda seyfried in Dear John.

    I am also in the process of looking for a job. It kinda sucks with this job market but wish me some luck! =D

  391. Hayley says:

    I actually despise getting haircuts- that’s probably the reason my hair is so long. Your hair looks really nice though!

  392. Poey says:
