Now he can bug you full-time. :D And don’t worry about the worm thing, if a cat has fleas it’s guaranteed to have worms too since the fleas carry the worm eggs. Luckily, the vet can give a simple shot that will kill all the wormies and with a couple doses of Advantage, both the fleas and worms will be gone! Hope you post some pics of Tabs enjoying his new digs.

  39. Karen says:

    Hi Amanda,

    You are so cute with your candy eating habits. I once opened up a bag of peanut M&M’s and found an entire bag of PURPLE candies. Turns out I won something, LOL.

    Tabs stopped by this morning and he looked okay. El Hub called the vet service and we’re taking him on Sunday. :) When he comes by tonight (apparently he’s a busy tabby cat with places to go) I’ll give him a big squeeze and hug for you. Hopefully no worms will pop out of him (eww).

  41. Brittany says:

    I got like 8 inches chopped off the back of it. I finally had it and just said screw it and chopped it off! lol

    I didn’t get anything great done with it, I got it cut a little bit longer than shoulder length and had some layers put it so it had some movement. Simple and easy. Very wash and go friendly.

  45. Karen says:

    Hi Laura B.,

    Aww, Tabs says “Hi”. He sends some purrs yoru day.

    I am dying to smell that scent by Tom Ford! Is it heavy?

  46. Karen says:

    Hi Beth,

    I was just at Target in the Boots section this weekend! I hope I can find this product, because it sounds pretty.

    Are you getting your hair cut/colored?

  47. Karen says:

    Hi Shefali,

    Congrats on making it to the gym three times last week. You can totally do four! GO GIRL!

  48. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    How exciting that your reunion is coming up. What kind of dress do you think you might get?

    LOL, the wormy cat is laying on our floor right now. He’s soooo headed to the vet this weekend.

  49. Karen says:

    Hi Lydia,

    I love me some Coca-Cola, too. Do you ever get it in a bottle? So good!

  50. Karen says:

    Hi Elle,

    I saw that Ewan McGregor previous at the movies the other day. It looks really good! Can’t wait to hear what you think of it. :)

  51. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    GIRLFRIEND! You are one busy lady. Good luck getting everything done, and I hope it all goes smoothly. Yay for your new real estate. :)

  52. Beth says:

    Hey Karen

    I’m having my roots done and as for the cut I’m not sure if I’m just going to have things tidied up or a full blown restyle. I’m excited though, I’m looking so skanky at the moment and something must be done! I’m not naturally all that dark but you know how it is when you know something doesn’t look right – it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks!

    Have a good tuesday!

    Breakfast: i was bad today… nada. just une bouteille d’eau…

    First song I heard today: tito puente – cuera na’ ma (superfast “mambo duro,” or hardcore mambo percussion to wake me up)

    Latest makeup find you’re telling all your homies about: laneige multishaping automatic eyeliner – over/inner liner for waterlines and bottom lashlines in NAVY

    a random find at a korean mall a couple weeks ago. does not smudge, spread, run, flake or move EVEN THOUGH IT’S A PENCIL. and the blue is ALMOST black, but somehow manages to make my eyes look really brown. will be buying loads to take home to montreal (although it’s not cheap, at $16 per pencil!).

    Outfit: red and white bubble skirt with a large dot pattern, red tanktop and white short-sleeved suit jacket with some fun wedge heels. mother-of-pearl flower earrings.

    Lovin’ it: HOW YOU’RE GOING TO ADOPT TABS!!! :D
    also… in two weeks i get to leave this hellhole, working 10 hours a day at a psych ward in a hospital kills you slowly, even if you love psychology and psychiatry and are killing yourself at school to earn you that degree!

  55. Glosslizard says:

  57. Karen says:

    Hi Okyanus,

    I hope it works for you, too! I remember seeing that in the drugstore and digging the groovy packaging.

    WOOT regarding the Supervixen!

  58. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    Oh no, hon! How did the sunburn happen?

    Put aloe vera gel on it… that shizz works wonders.

  59. Karen says:

    Hi Tekoa,

    Ahh, I used the Volcanic Ash this morning on my face. Lovin’ it.

    Oh, regarding math — it took me a loooooong time to get through calculus. Ugh, the pain is still fresh in my heart.

    Good luck on all your essays. I’m sending you good writing vibes.

  60. Karen says:

    Hi Grace,

    Oh no! The puppies don’t know any better, but I bet it’s still a pain to clean all that up, ugh.

    Why are you moving? Did you finish school?

  61. Karen says:

    Hi Rowena,

    Girl, that Dove deodorant is the bomb. I love that you kiss your cats. :)

  62. Karen says:

    Hi Christine,

    I agree, tightlining changes your makeup life. I have yet to try that mascara base (still on my list!).

  63. Karen says:

    Hi Music_Is_Freedom,

    I saw those the MAC glosses other day! They are pretty. :)

  64. Karen says:

    Hi Louise Gray,

    GIRL! Bust out that accordion. Seriously, that’s my dream instrument. I am destined to learn how to play it. Every year they actually have an accordion festival in Petaluma (a town north of me). I went a few years ago and it was really very cool.

    Speaking of Annick, do you have a favorite? Mine is Des Lys.

  65. Karen says:

    Hi Madeleine,

    Parrot! It’s still available online. Here’s a few posts on it:

    Face of the Day with Parrot
    MAC Parrot Lust Grips Nation!
    MAC Parrot Swatch

  66. Karen says:

    Hi Paula,

    That’s awesome that you were once on a game show. Please tell me it was the Price is Right and that you got to play Plinko (that’s totally my dream)! :)

  67. Karen says:

    Hi Hazeldazel,

    I really hope that he’s available for my loving. If I find out that he’s microchipped… oy. I guess I’ll cross that bridge if/when it comes. :)

    Thanks for the heads up regarding the fleas. (Blech!)

  68. Karen says:

    Hi Iheartmakeup,

    Girl, you have a Pro Membership! That’s so hot! :)

  69. Karen says:

    Hi Jaimie,

    You need to give me your 4 inch heel wearing secrets. I max out at 3.5!

  70. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    Have you seen the trailer for the new Harry Potter movie?

  71. Karen says:

    Hi Chamayne,

    Good luck getting more clients at work! And ahhh… isn’t it great being relaxed?

  72. Karen says:

    Hi Bella,

    Yeah, I’ve heard the Dazzleglass is pretty cool. I dunno, the big glitter scares me. I do have a tube here given to me by my homegirl that I’ll get around to eventually.

  73. Karen says:

    Hi Crystal G.,

    Good for you for cleaning out your closet. Would you like to come by and clean mine out? Seriously, mine is a hot mess.

    And yay for your finds from House of Tar-Jhay! ;)

  74. Karen says:

    Aleks!!!

    I’m not that great at math, either… that’s what Excel is for, WOOT!

    Any progress on the peachy blush front?

  75. Karen says:

    Hi Holly,

    No worries, girlie! Hope things have been well on your end.

    Good luck with the interview tomorrow. You’ll rock it!

  76. Karen says:

    Hi Lindsay,

    That’s so cool that you kickbox. It’s a great workout, isn’t it?

  77. Karen says:

    Hi Jana,

    Hope you had a great day, too!

    Are you ready for school next week? :)

  78. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    Girl, I know you got the Chanel app on that phone! And the Pandora app!

    Such a frickin’ awesome piece of technology. I’m lovin’ it.

  79. Karen says:

    Hi Brittany,

    Sounds really pretty… and very liberating. The wash and go style saves so much time, and gives one more time for important things like sleep and lipgloss. :)

    Do you put in product to keep it in check? Right now I’m on a leave-in conditioner mixed with gel kick.

  80. Karen says:

    Hi Lehea,

    Feel better, girlie. I hope you heal up before you leave for Hawaii (so jealous!). Eat some shave ice for me when you get there. :)

  81. Karen says:

    Hi Michelle,

    Pink is my favorite color, too. :)

  82. Karen says:

    Hi Beth,

    I hear ya. I have the bad habit of letting my hair go for too long. It gets to the point no return and I then often end up taking drastic measures.

    I hope it turns out super cute.

    Take care and have a fab Wednesday!

  83. Karen says:

    Hi Ines,

    Girlfriend, props to you for being to be able to emotionally handle the psych ward. I bet it’s tough… but I’m sure you’re learning a ton about your subject and yourself.

    I love that you wrote that you need to learn how to be more feline in your moments. I know exactly what you’re talking about.

    Mambo is so awesome, btw. I had to learn a very simple steps for West Side Story years ago.

  84. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    OH!!! Sounds so pretty… and just right for drop dead, red lips. What are the shoes going to be? Any thought on accessories? Chandelier earrings, maybe?

    Sigh, in another life I was a wardrobe stylist.

  85. Karen says:

    Hi Ellery,

    Oh sweetie! I hope your cat comes back. Is he/she microchipped?

  86. Marisol says:

    You know that Pandora rocks! I have that and Last.Fm on my iPhone.

    I am so glad that you are loving it. I seriously never thought that I would enjoy a gadget so much.

  87. Glosslizard says:

    I was thinking red heels and red lips (like Angelina on the cover of Vanity Fair… too bad Russian Red isn’t back yet)! Haven’t hashed out the jewelry deets yet!

    I know! I bought this online game where you put together outfits and send the models out on the runway! I get so addicted and Hubby is all “what is the big attraction?” I can’t even explain! :)

    It’s athletics camp this week and I put sunscreen on my neck, face, legs but stupidly forgot my shoulders *rolls eyes*
    I put lots of moisturizer on it and it’s a lot better now than on Monday. ^^
