    Yum, a milkshake sounds delish. I hope you had a good day today. Mine got better after reading everybody’s lists.

    Take care!

    Hi Tiera,

    Hey girl, I just started watching The Closer, too. I like it so far! I Tivo’d a whole bunch of them.

  56. Karen says:

    Hi Holly,

    I hope things sort themselves out at work. Keep your cool and don’t burn your bridges… cause you never know.

    I am so jealous that you’re leaving for Rome! Take me with you!

  57. Karen says:

    Hi GG,

    How was vacay? Where did you go?

  58. Karen says:

    Hi Rosie Dust,

    Cupcakes, yum! I hope they are a hit at the party tomorrow.

    Looks like a Lean Cuisine night for me, too (too lazy to cook).

  59. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    Thank you for the good advice. I ended up taking a long nap and just chilling. I sometimes get very overstimulated and need to just let my brain fry. Most of the time I’m running around so I have to force myself to relax, LOL.

    Here’s a big cheesy *smile* just for you!

    PS. I love that Shu blush!

  60. Karen says:

    Hi Iheartmakeup,

    Girl, I still haven’t gotten your e-mail! Oy vey!

    Are we gonna have to resort to chatting in Facebook?

  61. Karen says:

    Hi Alyssa,

    Oh no… I hope you’re feeling a little better. I don’t know your ex’s ex, but I guarantee you that you’re cooler and cuter. 😉

    Take care of yourself.

  62. Karen says:

    Hi Miss QQ,

    Thank you! I hope your headache goes away soon. 🙂

  63. Karen says:

    Hi Jane,

    Oh, I want that shade. How do you like it?

    LOL, I *love* Paranormal State. Is it just me, or did Ryan get slimmer?

  64. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    Yowza! 2038! I’m so happy for you and excited for your new digs. I hope the painting goes well and that you’ll be settled in soon.

    Isn’t your birthday sometime soon, or am I going nuts?

  65. Karen says:

    Hi Crystal G.,

    Have a good night, girl! Hope you get lots of good sleep. 🙂

  66. Megan says:

    Yeah I’ll be 28 on Saturday. 🙂

  67. Karen says:

    Megan! Happy early birthday. 🙂 Are you doing anything fun to celebrate?

  68. Megan says:

    LOL yes and no. I’ll be spending lots of time painting… but not actually on my birthday. I thought about it, but the boyf already got tickets to a matinee of The Lion King which is at the Kennedy Center right now. So I suppose he is saving me from myself. 🙂 We’re going to that and then to dinner…and that’s probably all the excitement on my actual birthday. I am supposed to go out with the girls next weekend on the 23rd for a late celebration. Things have been so hectic lately that I might miss this one passing me by. 🙂 Normally I would be super excited…but I haven’t had time to lately. And yeah when I had to sign papers saying I’m on the hook until 2038 in my head I was like wow…and then like…oh…I’ll be turning 58 that year… 🙂 although I’m pretty sure that I won’t be in my 2BR 2BA condo for 30 years… the paperwork and the numbers are just a little daunting. 🙂

  69. Marlo says:

    Hi makeup lovers and hi Karen!

    I am a huge fan of this blog and it is my first time posting, but I thought you guys would feel my pain. Someone broke into the trunk of my car yesterday and stole my purse..what was in my purse?

    Nothing else but lots and lots of MAC makeup! I am devastated, it had two lip glasses (Rock out and grenadine), a regular mac lipstick, about three shadows including Amber Lights and a couple of limited edition pink shadows, my Novel Twist eyeshadow pallete, a Hard Candy eyeshadow pallete, cream eyeliner, two blushes including my favorite Peachykeen, and all of my Sonya Kashuk brushes!

    I had all of these items in my purse because i didn’t have time to get ready in the morning and was going to get ready when I got to my destination..ahh, such bad idea!

    My ipod and digital camera were also in my purse, but what hurts the most is my that a big chunk of my makeup collection is gone :(. I spent so much time, money and trips to the store to put it together and it’s gone 🙁

    Just thought i would share such devastating news with my fellow makeup lovers.

    Thanks for listening!

  70. Marlo says:

    Oh, it also had my mac studiofix foundation, my Lancome mascara and eyeshadow pallete, eyebrow makeup and ahhh. just writing this makes me sad!!!!! 🙁

  86. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    I took El Hub to The Lion King for his birthday a few years ago. It’s a really great show. I hope you two have fun!

    I believe that one’s birthday lasts at least a month after the actual day. So when things let up you can still celebrate. 🙂

    I didn’t realize you were doing your own painting — good for you! For me it’s fun for about one wall, LOL.

  87. Karen says:

    Hi Marlo,

    Oh no! That’s really awful. Do you still have enough to cover your basics at home?

    On the upside, you’ll get to build a new collection. It’ll come slowly, but you’ll get there, again.

    If you decide to replace your Sonia brushes I highly recommend the ones with the black handles. They are a lil’ pricier than the white handled ones but they are very soft and perform great.

  88. Karen says:

    Hi Brittany,

    Ha! I watch that show, too. Holly is my favorite out of the three. She would be my pick for Hef (he’s so ancient).

  89. Karen says:

    Hi Bella,

    How fun! Have a safe trip and enjoy the sunshine. 🙂

  90. Karen says:

    Hi Christine,

    Congrats, girl! Graduation day was one of the *best* days of my life so far. What did you major in?

    Oh, and regarding makeup, don’t forget the waterproof liner and mascara. 😉

  91. Karen says:

    Hi Roxy,

    Today was much better, thanks. Hope you did well on your final today! What was it on?

  92. Karen says:

    Hi Bada,

    Ha! I wanna get rich right now, too. Hello, lottery!

  93. Karen says:

    Hi Ines,

    When I’m traveling typically I have to wake up really early, so end up doing the bare minimum to make it onto the plane; fill in the brows, curl the lashes, add mascara, conceal the dark circles, swipe some blush and some gloss. I’ll usually have oil-absorbing sheets, too, to keep the shine away. If it’s a *super* long trip, I’ll take these things along with me in the carry on, along with some makeup wipes (just put a few in a ziploc bag) and moisturizer. When I get close to my destination, I clean off the old stuff with a wipe, put on some moisturizer (planes always dry my skin out) and reapply. 🙂

    Hi Ping,

    Nice! Have you worn your Dainty yet?

  96. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    Kitty hugs are the best… especially when they are worm- and flea- free. Ewww!

  97. Karen says:

    Hi Tania,

    I hope the healing goes quick. Take care of yourself… don’t burn those brownies! That would be a travesty.

  98. Karen says:

    Hi Tanya,

    Your outfit sounds totally cute. Have fun next week visiting SF. It’s been cold lately, so bring layers. 🙂

  99. Karen says:

    Hi Ana,

    It’s been cold here, too. I wore layers yesterday… that’s just totally wrong for August!

  100. Karen says:

    Hi Michelle,

    You’re so lucky that you can wear Moon Sparkle. I like it but it’s a bit too fruity on me.

  101. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    Have fun in the city on Friday. I went to a French restaurant in Potrero Hill last Friday called Chez Papa. I am still dreaming about the onion tart I had…

  102. Megan says:

    Yeah I’m sure we will have fun. I’m pretty proud of the fact that he planned it all by himself as a surprise. 🙂

    I’m not doing all the painting by myself – my mom and friends and the boyf are helping. I decided to paint myself because I want to buy a new dining room table and new living room furniture…so saving money with DIY makes a difference in the furniture fund.

  103. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    I hear ya. Furniture can burn a hole in the wallet. I always have such a hard time deciding on things! What kind of look are you going for?
