Makeup and Beauty Blog Counts Down to the Sex and the City Movie Release

Published in: Just For Fun

Makeup and Beauty Blog SATC Poll-final1

Bust out your Manolos, ladies, because the countdown is on! As of today, there are only 49 days until the May 30 release of the Sex and the City movie. I am a die-hard fan of the show, and when the last season aired a few years ago I almost felt like I’d lost a fabulous group of girlfriends.

I know that many of you love the show as much as I do. It’s fun to think about which character you identify with the most. My friends C-Lo and J-Money identify with Miranda. While I’ll always have a beef with her choices concerning Mr. Big, Carrie cracks me up. I like to think of myself as a Carrie. I, too, am a shoe geek and writer … and I dig her quirky taste in clothes.

How about you? Which character from the show do you most identify with?

The movie opens on a Friday, so I’m planning to hit the first show. Fridays are my days off! You best believe I intend to wear my four-inch heels to the theater at 11am!

Ladies, I am so frickin’ tired right now it’s insane. I’m glad it’s Thursday! Tomorrow, I get a day off from my day job, so today is my “Friday,” so to speak. After work I plan to visit the mall and a few makeup counters — Prescriptives, Clinique and, of course, MAC! 🙂 Just gotta hold on ’til four this afternoon…

I hope you’re having a fantastic day and feeling cute!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    i think I just died a little over those shoes…..OMG. they are soooo hot. *swoon*

    I’m most like Charlotte, but love Carrie too.

  4. BeautyTalk says:

    I definitely identify with Carrie (I actually started a new gig as a sex columnist(!), go figure). But, you’ll probably be happy to know that I’m engaged to my Aiden and have left my Mr. Big far behind. My Mr. Big is trying to re-enter my life though, so I have to be careful. We’ve been “friends” for a while now and sometimes it’s way too tempting to not take it further!

  5. Indian Girl says:

    I Loooooooooooooove Aiden! How I wish she would have married him. I like Mr. Big but I hate how he plays with her 😡
    I think I am Miranda…I am always straight forward with my friends on what I think. Though I feel bad for them and their situation, I give them the most practical advice – all the time and am there for them no matter what.

  8. Karen says:

    Hi Jamie,

    FUN! I am going by myself in the middle of the day, LOL! I don’t think I can wait for my homegirls to get out of work to watch it, seriously!

  9. Karen says:

    Hi Iheartmakeup,

    If I save enough pennies they will be!

    OMG – now I have to look for a midnight showing!!! Maybe I’l go to that instead!

  10. Karen says:

    Hi Amanda,

    I know, right? I think that those zebra pumps and I share a mutual destiny, LE SIGH!

    I love Charlotte, and especially what happened to her character in the last season. I totally dig Harry, hairy back and all.

  11. Karen says:

    Hi BeautyTalk,

    Wow, sounds like there’s a lot of plot action happening in your life right now. Congrats on your new gig… when does your first column run?

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Indian Girl,

    Me too. Big is cool, and I get that they have that special chemistry, but yah, I find it hard to forgive him for a lot of the things he did to her.

    I bet your friends really appreciate you for being their “Miranda”!

  13. Karen says:

    Hey Kia!

    Oh I wish I could work those! If I save up enough I just might be rocking them in time for the premier. LOL, oh yah, I hope I can walk in them too!

  14. I haven’t watched Sex And The City for so long. I don’t really know who I identify myself with but if I had to choose a Friends’ character, you can just call me Monica Gellar!

    I’ve been having Fridays off too!! But I highly doubt I’ll tote the tykes by myself to the movies. Speaking of which, it’s been over 2 years since I’ve ever been to the movies. That coincides nicely with Big Tyke turning 2 not too long ago 😉 Lol.

    All in all, Happy Aloha Friday to you 🙂

  16. Laura says:

    hi karen. can i get your email address? I want to ask you a couple of questions about living in CA =)

  17. Glosslizard says:

    Zebra shoes! Yum! If only Manolos were the price of a paint pot! *le sigh*

    Believe it or not, the only time I have watched SATC is when I got my pedicure at Bliss! I kinda think I’m like Carrie, because she seems to be a good mix of good sense and adventurousness, but I don’t know if that was just the episodes I saw! Oh well, I’ll Netflix them one of these days anc catch up!

    Happy “Friday”, girl! Go have fun storming the castle! 🙂

  18. Karen says:

    Hi Lynne,

    Can you believe I’ve only seen one episode of Friends? It was the finale. I didn’t really watch TV for most of the 90s. LOL, and look at me now…

    Aww, if you lived closer we could hang on Fridays together!

  19. Karen says:

    Hi BeautyTalk,

    Hot! Can’t wait to check it out! 🙂

  20. Karen says:

    Hi Laura,

    It’s karen at makeupandbeautyblog dot com. I’ve only lived in Northern California and near Sacramento, but would be happy to answer any questions you have.

  21. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard!

    Ohhh, get thee the DVD’s ASAP! You need to catch up before the movie comes out!!! Can you sense the urgency? LOLOL!

  22. Megan says:

    Hmmm…this is a hard one for me because I have some qualities of each of them…I Would say that I am closest to a cross between Carrie and Charlotte.

    Yeah I’ll be seeing this with some of my girls too.

  23. Megan says:

    I’m with glosslizard…why can’t manolos be the price of a paint pot…and don’t get me started on bags… 🙂

  24. Dao says:

    OMG, that’s a sexy pair of Manolo! But unfortunately, Louboutin is the new Manolo and I do find them sexier. They need to have a show like SATC where all the female characters wear Louboutin. Those 4in heels make your legs look like gazelles. My cousins (1 male and a whole bunch of females) used to gather and watch SATC. One day the female cousins ordered the DVD to watch as a girl night out+ sleepover thing. Guess what happened the next day?

    The boy said, “You guys are mean! You watched SATC without me!” :))

  25. Breezy says:

    Argh, one of my best friends is getting married right friggen before this comes out and she’s blackmailed all her bridesmaids to wait until she gets back from her honeymoon to go!!! I may just have to go before her and keep it on the low haha. Yeah we totally plan on dressing the heck up and prancin in there haha. Hey if the Harry potter geeks can do it, I’m sure its ok for us to look amazing walking in as well. Yaaay.
    Oh and my friends say I’m totally like Miranda but I do identify with Carrie on the whole leaving Aiden for Mr. Big. That’s a whole story…..I’m actually trying to work it out with my Aiden hehe. We all know its the right choice right!!

  26. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    Fun! It seems like on May 30th there will be a ton of fun girls night outs!

    Girl, I had to give up my bag habit. *tears* My closet only has X amount of space and I’d rather devote valuable real estate to shoes. Plus, I ended up losing so much makeup from the act of transferring stuff from one bag to another.

  27. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    Awwww, what a cute story!!! Ya’ll will just have to throw another party so he can be there too! You’re so lucky to have cousins to do stuff with. I was never really close to mine so I couldn’t do stuff that with them.

    Anyway, yah, Louboutins are sooo hawt, and I agree, they make your legs look long. I *love* the height I get from heels… they make me the height I feel I should be (I’m only 5’1).

  28. Karen says:

    Hi Breezy,

    Girl, yah, looks like you’ll have to watch it on the low before she comes back. I’m sure you’ll be able to still be enthusiastic when you watch it with your homegirls! I just might try to sneak a cosmo in there in a water bottle… LOL, we’ll see.

    I hope it works out with your Aiden, sweetie!

  29. Dao says:

    Oh, I don’t think that’s possible anymore. Some of the cousins already moved out of their home state and I’m many states away from them. Plus the boy is no longer a boy, he’s now a grown man and watching SATC has a new meaning to him I reckon.

  30. Karen says:

    It’s nice that you have those memories though! Do you guys still keep in touch?

  31. Lilan says:

    You have NO idea how much Carrie should have ended up with Aiden, HELL, I’d take him! I never really got into why she was so hung up on Big, he was a douche – pardon my language.. I really loved the show too and I can’t wait until the movie comes out! If only I could take Friday off and watch it before the masses do as well 🙂

  38. Jot says:

    Can’t wait for the movie and i love those shoes x

  39. Megan says:

    So I’ve gotten this habit of getting like kinda crazy bags and carrying them for everyday… Like lime green, bright blue, maroon with lots of hardware and some Rhinestones on it etc. Seriously…I love them! 🙂 I have bags in my car and bags in my closet, and bags in the hall closet. I have shoes in all of those same places too though :-)I don’t keep much makeup in my purse so I typically don’t lose stuff that way.

  40. Karen says:

    Hi Lilan,

    Yah, I know. I had some big issues with Big too. Remember the episode where he went to church with his mum and introduced her as his “friend”? Grrr…

  41. Karen says:

    LOL, Ilovemakeup,

    Okay, if I am in the Houston area then it’s a deal!!! 😉

  42. Karen says:

    Hi Shefali,

    Yay! I hope you rock your high heels to the show as a homage to the ladies!

  43. Karen says:

    Hi Ilovecheese,

    That’s cool. It can’t be everybody’s cup of tea…

  44. Karen says:

    Hi Eru,

    It’s a good show, girl! If anything just watch it for the fabulous clothes and shoes Patricia Field puts together in the later seasons!

  45. Karen says:

    Hi Amita,

    LOL, yah, I know how you feel too! I ended up just “visiting” with a few products, which is something I do often.

  46. Karen says:

    Hi Jot,

    Me too! Who is your favorite character from the show?

  47. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    That’s awesome! I have such a weakness for accessories and I loves me some sassy bags! I am like you in that I have shoes all over the place — in the car, in the closet, in the hallway, and um, right next to my desk at this very moment!

    BTW, do you have a favorite bag?

  48. Megan says:

    I don’t think I have a favorite. I like to switch it up too much. I have some nice ones that were mostly gifts. Sometimes I almost hesitate to carry them though…lol I guess those are for special occasions – not really…my mom sayd that about some of the makeup I buy her. I try not to break the bank with the ones that I buy. I have a lot of bags by Kathy Van Zeeland. I know some people don’t like KVZ, but she always blings out her bags and they’re always fun and in nice colors – plus they always have a million pockets which means that I dont’ lose everything.

  49. Apple Diva says:

    Yo, I was not too keen on Aidan. He bought an engagement ring w.o her knowledge… that is definitely a no-go area!!

  50. El Hub says:

    Hi Apple Diva,

    I did that too with the engagement ring, but in my defense it was the only way I thought I could surprise Karen when I asked her to marry me.

    Thank God she said yes!

  51. I never watched Friends until the last season. And I caught up to the rest from re-runs, hah. Girl, we’d have our Fridays BOOKED if I lived there, hah!

  52. Apple Diva says:

    @ El-Hub,

    There is always an exception to the rule. 😉

  53. Echidnagirl says:

    I love Aidan. I’m just glad he found someone he seemed happy with and had a baby in the last season.

    As for Mr. Big, Carrie is welcome to him – what a jerk.

  54. Lea says:

    Thanks so much for the heads up! GEez, I’ve been out of the radar for a while, school and work has taken a toll on me but on this post I MUST reply. I LOVE LOVE LOVE SATC, I got my bf into watching the repeats and DVDs with me and he admits (doesn’t happen too often) that it is a great show! I’m bummed coz flying to Toronto on release day =( On the bright side, it means I’ll be avoiding the crowd when we go watch it the week after.

    I took one of the quizes on Facebook and it said I am a bit of Samantha and Carrie.
