    Hi Maria,

    Aww, I hope your Monday so far has made up for your weekend.

    What did you think of the Making Faces book?

    Stay awake at work, girlie!

  26. Karen says:

    Hi Jess,

    Hosseini’s first novel, Kite Runner is one of my favorite books of all time; part of it is cause the area where they relocate in the SF Bay Area is basically where I gerw up. A Thousand Splendid Suns is also great — albeit a bit depressing. I hope enjoy it.

    I hope you feel better soon! Breaking Dawn comes out this month, yah?

    Thank you! πŸ™‚ Speaking of salty and cheesy, have you ever had Baked Cheetos? They are pretty darn spectacular.

    Have fun at your softball game tonight… I have an irrational fear of flying projectiles in sports so I hope you don’t get hit by the softball!!!

  31. Karen says:

    Hi Tiffany,

    Good for you for going to work out! I am gonna try to squeeze in a run before we go to dinner tonight.

    Congrats on your anniversary as well! It’s funny, I was sooo stressed out right before the wedding, and I think enough time has passed to make me all nostalgic for the whole process once more. Really, I think I just want to wear the pretty white dress again, LOL.

  32. Karen says:

    Hi Brittany,

    I saw that scent on the B&BW site today. It totally looks like something I would like. I can’t wait to smell it!

    BTW, when’s the big day?

  33. Karen says:

    Hi Tuprnut,

    GIRLFRIEND! When did that Chanel lipstick come into your life? How are you liking it?

    May God bless you and your hubby, and give you many many more wonderful years together!

    “When did that Chanel lipstick come into your life? How are you liking it?”

    Last week – Grace and I headed for Macy’s after reading your Chanel Fall release review. I didn’t absolutely LOVE anything from the new line, especially since they didn’t have any testers yet. Boo! So, I started checking out some of their other stuff and instantly fell in love with Waikiki and Antigua. So, they’re my new babies. I’m in love.

    Antigua + Waikiki + MAC’s Bombshell = my pink lipstick trinity. Perfection.

    Happy Anniversary, Dear! Enjoy today with your husband… July’s a good month – we’ll celebrate 5 years on the 26th! πŸ™‚

  64. Karen says:

    Hi Beth,

    Thank you so much for the anniversary wishes!

    BTW, I was rocking out to Phil Collins while washing dishes yesterday. “Billy! Billy don’t you lose my number!” Ahh, good times, the 80s.

  65. Karen says:

  67. Karen says:

    Hi Holly!

    You’re back! It’s great to hear from you, although I’m sad your trip is over. But hey, at least you get to take a shower. πŸ™‚

    How was it? What was the best part?

  68. Karen says:

    Hi Arianne,

    Thank you, sweetie! I am a mushy person too; you are not alone in that department. πŸ™‚

    How long have you and the BF been together? A promise ring sounds pretty serious!

  69. Karen says:

    Hi Elle,

    Thank you, m’dear. I learned yesterday that there are three: cotton, fine China and garnets. Can I just say I’m really stoked about the fine China part? It’s so weird, but I’ve totally become obsessed with it in the last year, LOL.

    BTW, thanks for the book recommendation. I put it on my ginormous reading list!

  70. Karen says:

    Hi Rachel,

    Thank ya! πŸ™‚ How’s the diet business going this week? It’s so hard to lose weight, I know, but you can do it!

  72. Karen says:

    Hi Laurie,

    How was the concert? (And how do you feel about Jen dating John?)

    Totally random true story: I saw J. Mayer live years ago just before he became famous; he smiled directly at me when he was on stage, and I swear to gawd I almost swooned. I didn’t imagine it, either — my homegirl was with me and she totally confirmed that it actually did happen, LOL.

    Anyhoo, I gotta get through tons of emails too! My inbox has taken over my life.

  73. Karen says:

    Hi Jeannie,

    Thanks hon! Have a great week.

  74. Karen says:

    Hi Alli,

    Yay! I happy to hear that you are in love! πŸ™‚

    Girl, you’re such a night owl! Get some sleep. πŸ™‚

  84. Karen says:

    Hi Morgan,

    It’s great to meet you. πŸ™‚ Glad you decided to say hi! Regarding the highlighter trick on the inner corners — that’s a good one. Which one are you thinking of getting? I like to use powder shadow, too, to get the brightening effect!

  85. Karen says:

    Hi Jana,

    Thanks, hon! I hope you have a great week and that good things happen to you. Take care. πŸ™‚

    Stay cool and have fun with that check, WOOT!

  92. Karen says:

    Hi Louise Gray,

    Thank you. πŸ™‚ One of these days you’ll have to sit down and tell me your story. I bet it’s a good one. 34 years, wow…

    I think I’m the only one who hasn’t smelled Rainkissed leaves?I’m so on that this weekend.

  93. Karen says:

    Hi Miss QQ,

    I finally got mine cut today and I’m super happy. πŸ™‚

    Gotta say, your goal was probably one of my faves. I hope she comes out soon!

  100. Holly says:

    Hi Karen,
    It was amazing!! I had such a good time, far better than I expected!
    The best part without a doubt was watching Mark Ronson who was incredible!! Its hard to believe that one single person can be so musically talented!!
    The worst part however was definately being so cold I feared death every night haha!

  101. Laurie says:


    Wow – a look from JM? I’m jealous:) He has really gotten cute this past year – I am really digging his short-haired look. He is so intense, talented and witty – the concert was awesome.

    I think Jen is a lucky girl and they seem to be going strong – she’s following him on some of his tour spots. Girl deserves a break – she totally got the short end of the stick with Brad and it doesn’t help that he’s popping out babies left and right!

    Happy hump-day!
