Published in: Just For Fun

  1. Mood:
  2. Pretty spiffy. I feel good about this week.

  3. A beauty product you couldn’t live without?

  5. Socks with high heels — yay or nay?
  6. In high fashion mags, yay; worn by me? Nay.

  7. Your beverage this morning?
  8. A mug of piping hot green tea with honey.

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:

  11. What makeup do you have in your purse right now?
  12. Surprisingly, not a lot (or is it?): Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Grapefruit, NARS Sweet Revenge Lipgloss and MAC Cremestick Pearl Liner in Gingerroot. I’ve also got a couple of makeup-related accessories — Sonia Kashuk Blotting Papers and a Sally Hansen Cuticle Pen.

  13. What was the highlight of your weekend?
  14. I slept for 10 glorious hours on Saturday!!

  15. When was the last time you went shopping for makeup?
  16. Last Thursday. I went to Nordstrom and Bloomingdales and messed around with some lipsticks, foundations and the new Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess collection.

  17. Outfit:
  18. I wanted to look good for Tabs today so I put on the green Calvin Klein dress I found at Marshall’s last night. :) It’s a little wrinkly in the pic at the top; I probably should have ironed it first.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Don’t get any further behind on e-mails, keep a positive attitude, eat lots of fiber (LOL!) and *smile* no matter what.

It’s horror-film foggy up here today, babes. It’s thicker than mashed potatoes and kinda scary! Good thing I’ve got 15 pounds of Tabby on my lap to protect me… Tabs waves a sleepy hello, by the way.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Toni! I hope that your son is feeling 100% better. :)

      What pigments samples are you playing with today? Sounds like fun.

      • Toni says:

        Karen, thanks for thinking of him! He and my hubby are doing much better, then they gave their germies to me, but after a week on antibiotics, I feel like a new woman!

        I have a friend in CA that I swapped with and she had some pigments that she put in little jars for me: Sweet Sienna, Coppering, Naked, Vanilla, and a silver one (not sure of the name). She also gave me a vial of Blue Brown. I could totally see myself purchasing the full size of Vanilla, because I love that one!

        • Karen says:

          Glad to hear your family is feeling better and that you’re on the mend! :)

          As for the pigments… FUN! Vanilla is a great one that goes with practically everything. Do you already have Melon in your stash? It’s a peachy gold that basically functions as a neutral, and it works well with a lot of looks.

          Also, what brushes do you like to use with them?

          • Toni says:

            Nope, I don’t have melon yet, but I think my friend might and she told me just to let her know if I needed more samples. Right now, I am using a large flat, but fluffy, brush to put Vanilla all over, and then I use my MAC 217 for the crease colors and outer corner colors. I put Naked pigment on my lid the other day with the 239 brush and liked how it looked. Do you use specific brushes for pigments?

            Hubby called tonight from Ohio and told me his throat was hurting, so I am hoping he’s’ not bringing something else home. Gah! I hate cold weather!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Alyssa, I’m sorry to hear that your heart is hurting. Before I met El Hub I went through a few really rough breakups — the kind that rip your heart out and tie your stomach in knots — and I remember the hardest part about them was having to re-learn how to live without the other person. I hope that you have some time to focus on yourself… and when you’re feeling blue, call on your friends and family. They love you and will lift you when you need it most.

      I am also firm believer in shoe therapy. A good pair of “Dontcha” heels would always perk me up, even if it was momentarily.

      What kind of cardio are you doing this week? I’ve been all about the treadmill lately… sometimes I run up and down the stairs in my house just to mix it up!

      • Steph B says:

        The stairs in my condo were my saving grace during the 10 days of snowpocalypse!

        I’ve been doing 2 rounds of 15 minutes on the treadmill with 10 minutes of elliptical sandwiched between. I get bored if I go too long on one thing. Last week I watched curling while doing my cardio — totally hypnotizing and I didn’t find myself watching the clock.

        MAC Syrup is a more recent love but that doesn’t make it any less special! I’ve always been more of a berry/plum lip gal.

        • Karen says:

          This is the first time I’ve lived in a place with stairs in over 10 years and it’s kind of rad… it’s like having a free stair stepper!

          I hear you on getting bored with one machine. I’ve noticed that if I listen to talk radio it tends to make time go by faster… but it’s not very inspiring, especially if I want to do something like sprints!

          Oh, and Syrup — do you have any pinkish liner like Whirl or Pink Treat? It looks fab with either of those… pop a hit of clear gloss on the lower lip and it’s ooh-la-la time. :)

      Hi Sarah! He did. I’ve been doing this thing where I attach two leashes together to make a really long leash — I think it gives him a bit more freedom and makes him feel like he’s out on his own.

      HOh, and if you need a virtual cardio buddy I offer my services, LOL! I have to hop on the treadmill at least two times this week.

      • lexi says:

        renting a house back in Daly City – wasn’t too fond of moving back to my old hometown but I’m not mad at having waaaaay more space and paying $100 less than what we use to pay for our tiny cottage here in SF!

      • Karen says:

        LOL, why do you think we ended up in Novato? It’s cheaper up here and we have more room… I’m betting your happiness levels will dramatically increase with your living space, the money you save and the time you spend NOT looking for parking. Well, that’s what happened with me at least, ha ha.

      Hey Aparnaa, thanks! Greens are fun. :)

      What did you get at Tar-ghay and Ulta?

      • Aparnaa says:

        I got Seche Restore (I REFUSE to get another bottle of Seche Vite when I have two half bottles congealing in my nail polish box) and q-tips for no good reason from Ulta…From Target, I got the EcoTools Kabuki brush, ’cause I hate the BareMinerals one. It just scratches my face hardcore and I feel irritated and mildly grumpy for a good hour. Based off your review for the other brushes, actually!

        • Karen says:

          What a coincidence, I used that brush for today’s Chanel face of the day. I tried buffing in a mix of MAC Prep+Prime along with MAC Blot and it seems to work really well for pictures…

    • Karen says:

      Hey Kate & Zena, Sorry to hear you’ve got the blues. Hopefully that lovely puppy of yours will lift your spirit a bit. Hugs to the both of you from me and Tabs. <3

      • Kate & Zena says:

        She’s working on it. My blues are a combo of stress and the weather (snow, ugh). Zena decided to wanted to perk me up a few nights ago by lying on my bed and she stuffed her nose in between my pillows so it looked like she was getting high. I texted my dad saying I think she’s becoming a Pillow and Blanket Huffer and needs Intervention. I’m surprised she hasn’t suffocated yet from all the time she spends with her nose in the blankets and pillows.

        Zena sends greetings from her Humble Abode Atop the Fleece (i.e. my bed). I send them, of course, from school. School sucks up all my time, I swear.

      • Karen says:

        That’s so cute! Tabs is not really into pillows… he’s more about snuggling on top of any body part that happens to be handy.

        How are your classes this semester (or quarter, whichever system your school is on)?

        • Kate & Zena says:

          School is doing okay for the most part, except on the choir end. I was given the ultimatum to either voluntarily leave or I could choose to stay and have my director send a letter to his dean about my “bad behavior” (whatever this means) and have whatever the dean said on my permanent academic record (transferring out to the school I want to go to is not gonna happen with academic advisory on my record). I’m still trying to understand what he’s considering “bad behavior” and how he can kick me out for having a disability that impacts how I behave when it’s a COMMUNITY college choir. A community choir means you’re probably going to have at least one disabled person in there. It’s so frustrating!

  50. Catherine says:

    1. Mood: Exhausted. I’ve been volunteering for the American Academy of the Arts and Sciences (they publish Science) 2010 Conference all weekend in addition to trying to get a poli sci paper and two bioseparations homeworks completed (haven’t gotten far on those) and it’s just been absolutely exhausting. I had a lot of fun at some of the talks and I got to see Carol Greider speak on the work that she co-won the Nobel Prize with last year, so it was definitely rewarding but man, I was so exhausted I actually fell asleep with my makeup on three times at home and multiple times at the conference… D: D: D:

    2. A beauty product you couldn’t live without? Ooh. Lip balm, specifically my Soapalaya Soaps Green Tea lip balm. My lips are so dry and gross if I don’t take care of them ’cause I rather unfortunately sleep with my mouth open.

    3. Socks with high heels — yay or nay? Yay! But… like, stockings socks with close toed pumps, not trouser or ankle socks and not peep toe shoes. Though I admit the latter can look amazing on the runway.

    4. Today’s morning beverage? Just water. I’ve had so much coffee over the last five days that by Sunday morning all it did was make me feel dehydrated and awful. Wish I could have taken a green tea latte with me but I needed all the sleep I could get so it was literally roll out of bed, shower, clothes, makeup and go.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: NYX Lanikai (lid), Deep Charcoal (outer corner), Irises (bottom lashline), Prestige Surf/Revlon Colorburst Peach/Laura Mercier Nectar + NARS Deep Throat

    The Revlon Colorbursts are surprisingly nice!! They wear comfortably and are non-drying. Unfortunately, my lips are dry right now and they’re sinking horribly into my liplines but I adore Carnation and Peach (which is like, THE perfect coral peach I’ve been searching for) – any tips on how to prep my lips so the lines don’t show as much? I tried a sample of MAC Prep & Prime Lip but it doesn’t seem to help with the liplines.

    6. What makeup do you have in your purse right now? LOTS of lipsticks – Laura Mercier Sugar Plum, Baked Earth, Shu Uemura Jupiter Brown, Revlon Colorburst Peach & Carnation, JI Lip Drink, UD Stash, HIP Chrome Gold, Boscia blotting sheets and a compact mirror.

    7. The highlight of your weekend? Ooh. Tie between getting to hear Carol Greider speak and getting gelato at the Cremerie Chocolat in the Gaslamp district.

    8. When was the last time you went window shopping for makeup? Yesterday! I went to a freestanding MAC to look at the Fresh Salmon and Cyndi lipsticks even though I can’t really wear lustres.

    9. Outfit: Right now I’m sitting in my undies but earlier I was wearing a bright teal top, black boyfriend blazer, navy dress pants with white pinstripes, grey argyle socks and cute black kitten heels with a bow on the toe.

    10. Weekly goals: As always, not die. And get my skincare routine back on track!
