    hey karen!
    hope you had a restful weekend. my performance went fabulously, if you’re interested, i’ll send you the video clip if you’re interested as soon as i get it from my friend who was the unofficial videographer for the night. unfortunately no close ups of the makeup, but there is a clear shot of me with it on, so i can explain the cake-on-the-makeup process required for these dance things (it’s really scary in real life, only looks good in pictures)!

    for the foxtrot, there is a video clip, and for the argentine tango, mostly passable but slightly blurred clips (the camera we were using wasn’t the best… but oh well, i can wait for the photo album and the official dvd to come out).

    let me know how your weekend was!

  47. Karen says:

    Hi Cloudburst,

    I still haven’t had the chance to check out the new Metal X shadows. Which shades did you get?

  48. Karen says:

    Hi Laura B,

    When it comes to switching up the wardrobe you can never go wrong with new shoes and accessories! Your shoes sound really cute. Platforms are so comfy!

  49. Karen says:

    Hi Maria,

    Hawaiian fried rice… YUM! I think you should get a plate and eat enough for the both of us.:)

  50. Karen says:

    Hi Violet,

    Aren’t holidays that revolve around food the best? I love dessert, so I’d be all over those pies in a hot second. 🙂

  51. Karen says:

    Hi Jennifer, I’ve been eyeing the Hello Kitty collection for a few months. I can’t wait till it comes out! Do you think you’ll pick anything up?

  52. Karen says:

    Hi Tatiana, I love the Shu curler, too. It has perfect tension and it never pinches. That’s too bad it doesn’t hold the curl for you. What technique are you using?

  53. Karen says:

    Hi StargirlHeuser,

    Yay! What do you think of Shadow Insurance?

  54. Karen says:

    Hi Meimei,

    Funny you should mention Flo-Rida. The DJ played Get Low and every one in the room went nuts. Must be the Florida connection.

  55. Karen says:

    Hi VampyVarnish,

    Ahh, Moth Brown. Every time I think of the MAC Barbie release it brings a tear to my eye. 🙂

  56. Karen says:

    Hi Karen4,

    How fun! I created a personal scent a Aveda a few years ago and it smelled like lavender. What does your scent smell like?

  57. Karen says:

    Hi Tiera,

    Gotta love how slippers are a wardrobe necessity in Hawaii1!

  58. Karen says:

    Hi Elle,

    Pigments are so fab. They go on with so much color intensity and last all day. What brushes are you using to apply them?

  59. Karen says:

    Hi Angel,

    LOL, yeah, I did. Their paws were wide like ping pong paddles. Most of the kitties were really sweet.

  60. Karen says:

    Hi Lydia,

    Isn’t that lotion the best? I love how it isn’t too sugary sweet.

  61. Karen says:

    Hi Aqilla,

    I am so jealous of your new Bissell!

    Also, I love that quote. It’s going into my quote journal!

  62. Karen says:

    Hi Christine,

    Today is my last full day here in Key West. Got any restaurant recommendations for me?

  63. Karen says:

    Hi Ellery,

    LOVE that quote from Dita. She’s one of my favorite celebs.

    I hope you can get your Monday vibe back soon! You’re supposed to be the happiest person I know on Mondays!

  64. Karen says:

    Hi Holly,

    Oh no… I hope you are feeling better today. Here’s a smile for you. 🙂

    That soap sounds lovely, BTW. Have you tried the body wash?

  65. Karen says:

    Hi Jen,

    That is a great quote. Thanks for sharing it!

  66. Karen says:

  67. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    Hi DivaStyle,

    I just picked up that concealer, too. What shade did you get?

  78. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    How exciting! I hope the moving goes smoothly. I’m sure your last few days at your job will fly by. Congrats again!

    Hi Miss QQ,

    Ooh, what looks have you done with Tempting?

    I hope you feel better soon. 🙂

  82. Holly says:

    Hi Karen,

    I have tried the bath gel yes and I really loved it but honestly since I got the soap I have barely touched my bath gel mainly because I find that I get a better scent from the soap and also I kinda dont worry about the soap running out as it feel like it will take a year haha but the bath gel goes so quickly!!

  83. Daya says:

    No, we’re chilling at home. Our families are hours away in different directions 🙂

  84. Christine says:

    We liked Crabby Dick’s and there is a great sushi place my husband and I ran across that was wonderful – but of course I can’t remember the name! Hope you liked your trip. We have a great picture of my daughter sitting on one of the steps at the Hemingway house with one of the cats sitting right next to her – so maybe some of those good writing vibes will rub off on her…

  85. shopgal says:


    The food here is un-freakin-believable!!! Okinawan noodles are like little slivers of heaven swimming in a savory milky broth!! Weather is nice most of the year (except durint typhoon season) and life here is technologically advanced without the hustle and bustle of big cities like Tokyo. The rain can be oppressive though…and some days leaves a lot of extra time for reading beauty blogs. You should visit in early summer…that’s when the weather’s nicest. But the fab sushi and noodles are always in season!

  86. Roxy says:
