  1. Mood:
  2. I’m having a hard time concentrating, but otherwise I’m peachy. The response so far to the Clarisonic giveaway has been amazing! Don’t forget to enter if you haven’t already. It takes less than a minute. :)

  3. Three things that bring you joy:
  4. Programmable coffee makers (nothing like waking up to a fresh brewed cup), Tabs when he sleeps beside me in bed, the sound of marimbas (don’t ask).

  5. How’d ya sleep last night?
  6. Pretty darn well! It helps that I went to bed early. I planned to continue the book I’ve been reading, Her Fearful Symmetry, but conked out after a few pages. ‘Twas heaven!

  7. Something you’d like to improve about yourself in 2010?
  8. I want to work on becoming a better photographer and a better cook. :)

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. I’m MAC Colour Crafting it today — Assemblage Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad on my eyes, Madly Creative Lipstick on my lips and Cheeky Bronze on my cheeks.

  11. What’s one skincare product you find yourself buying over and over again?
  12. Shiseido 55+ sunscreen.

  13. One type of holiday food that you absolutely REFUSE to eat:
  14. Fruit cake! I especially can’t stand it when they’re hard and chock full of weird red and green mystery fruit.

  15. How do you feel about ’90s fashion?
  16. I like those plaid button-up shirts and the floral dresses with the clips in back, but I don’t miss the little black backpacks and spaghetti strap dresses with white baby-ts worn underneath.

  17. Outfit:
  18. Dark jeans, a green T and a black sweater.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. I have a mountain of work to get done before we leave early next week to see our family in Hawaii. If I can just keep from catching the cold that sidetracked El Hub last weekend and hold myself together, things will work out fine.

      Hi Trude,

      Chocolate makes everything better. :)

      I must check out that serum! I have some post-acne scars that need some help. I’ve been using Clinique Get Even but I dunno if it’s working as well as it was before. Have you ever tried it?

      • Trude says:

        I haven’t tried that one, but I will say that with the Aveda serum I noticed a difference within two weeks of using it once a day (if I have, say, a big event coming up I’ll use it 2x daily) and it keeps on working! I’ve tried other things like Neutrogena’s get even mask and such but nothing has come close!

    Le list

    1. Mood: Quite tired. I’ve been sick all weekend, and I still feel crappy. Mondays don’t exactly help either, but I’m finally starting to feel better.

    2. Three things that bring you joy: The smell of my lovely Christmas tree, apple cider and Christmas lights. Pretty much just Christmas in general.

    3. How’d ya sleep last night? Hmm….I fell asleep on the couch around 9:30 watching Slumdog Millionaire (best movie EVER) then woke up again around 10:45 and went to bed. I then woke up at 6:35. So actually pretty well.

    4. Something you’d like to improve about yourself in 2010? I want to adopt a positive attitude about things. I’ve finally realized that complaining about crap really doesn’t get you anywhere.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Rubenesque paint pot, Photograuve eyeliner, Covergirl Lash blast mascara, Angel blush by NYX and some CO Bigelow lipgloss. Typical me.

    6. What’s one skincare product you find yourself buying over and over again? Cetaphil daily moisturizing cream, it works very well and you can get a massive tub of it for like $15 at Costco.

    7. One type of holiday food that you refuse to eat: well I can’t imagine myself eating a massive chunk of fruit cake, that is for sure.

    8. How do you feel about ’90s fashion? Um.. not so much for me.

    9. Outfit: Hah I’m wearing a t-shirt, sweats and uggs. So lovely.

    10. Weekly goals: Get better, find more presents for my sister and mom and study for huge tests Thursday/Friday.

    1. Mood: Overall good. Busy with end of year items at work. And making lists of the little things to do to get ready for Christmas.
    2. Three things that bring you joy: My Shar-Pei Bella – she is an absolute clown and the wrinkles are adorable. Finding unexpected and long forgotten money in a pocket or drawer. A lazy afternoon sitting around with girlfriends and a margarita.
    3. How’d ya sleep last night? Pretty well. Sunday was laundry day so the sheets were soft, cozy and smelled fresh. Room was cool. Makes it hard to get up though.
    4. Something you’d like to improve about yourself in 2010? Not to be so hard on myself and not to procrastinate.
    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Bobbi Brown malted cream eyeshadow, champange shimmer shadow, indiog ink gel eyeliner, and Diorshow mascara. Nars orgasm blush, Philosophy lip balm in sugar cookie.

    7. One type of holiday food that you refuse to eat: Can drinks count? I hate egg nog. Fruitcake (soaked in a lot of rum) is more tolerable.
    8. How do you feel about ’90s fashion? Indifferent really. Moved on but like everything else, it will be back one day.
    9. Outfit: Now that I’m home: stretched out tshirt, pj bottoms and warm socks. Comfort mode to do a little holiday baking with hair up and a glass of wine.
    10. Weekly goals: Knocking items off my to do list so I can enjoy the week of Christmas with a clear conscience and come back to work without feeling so far behind.

    6. What’s one skincare product you find yourself buying over and over again? Olive oil, it’s my ultimate moisturizer.
    7. One type of holiday food that you refuse to eat: I haven’t come across anything I’d flat out refuse yet.
    8. How do you feel about ’90s fashion? Wow, memories. I used to wear those spaghetti strap dresses with the white shirt underneath. I was also a fan of those floral dresses with the clips in the back. Man, I was girly girl.

      Hey Tammy!

      I’m actually thinking of getting a bunny (as a friend for Tabs). Are they lots of work?

      • Tammy says:

        Hi Karen,

        Sorry for such a late replay. I should make sure to get email notifications next time! Anyway, bunnies are really great pets. Whether they’re a lot of work or not really depends on the personality of the bunny. Mine is not much work at all as long as she’s fed and gets lots of time to play with me. All I do is clean her house (aka cage) every day and make sure she gets lots of veggies and hay. Her food and litter can be expensive. Then again, I give her the stuff that’s considered top of the line. Yup, she’s a spoiled diva.

        The hard part was training her to do her business in a designated area when she was a baby (she’s 2 years old now). Socializing her took a lot of time, since she’s a prey animal and doesn’t trust easily. I also had to “bunny-proof” everything to keep her away from chewing wires and other dangerous things.

        I can go on and on, but don’t want to clog up your comments area too much. If you want more details, I can send you some links about caring for rabbits. :)

    8. How do you feel about ’90s fashion?
    Oh God, no. I’m really young at nearly 21, but I don’t want the scrunchies and stirrup leggings to come back. I’m glad to leave the ’90s. I liked Kate Winslet’s clothes in Titanic though, particularly the blue one (the one she wears while getting a tour of the ship) and the sinking gown and the dinner dress that turns into her wedding dress. Did you know all of the dresses Kate wore were size 4′s? The corset she wears is period inaccurate but it’s a nice corset.

    I’m a little late to the party, but here goes!

    1. Mood: Good–I think today will be a productive day!
    2. Three things that bring you joy: Music, my family & friends, my super comfy bed with clean, crisp sheets!
    3. How’d ya sleep last night? Excellent.
    4. Something you’d like to improve about yourself in 2010? How about a major overahaul? lol! But seriously, be more organized.
    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: nothing yet–I just got up a little while ago.

    8. How do you feel about ’90s fashion? Meh. I wish designers would stop resurrecting the 70′s, 80′s and 90′s! Can’t they come up with something new and beautiful? I don’t mind giving a nod to styles of yesteryear, but when they bring back the ugly stuff (i.e., shoulder pads, neon, plaid, shiny leggings worn as pants) it’s atrocious!
    9. Outfit: red fleece pants and white ls t–my version of last night’s sleepwear!
    10. Weekly goals: wrap all of the holiday presents (we celebrate both Chanukah & Christmas), finish decorating the Christmas tree and the rest of the house, get a work project finished, practice my violin and mandolin, give myself a manicure.
