  19. Goals for the week:
  20. To call my parents, to find a strapless bra to wear with my bridesmaids dress, to obliterate the piles of paper on my desk and to stay positive no matter what.

  10. Karen says:

    Hi Ellery,

    Oh! I want to wear a big blanket too!

    What are you thinking of getting your BFF? When you go present shopping you’ll have to find a replacement for your green eyeshadow! 🙂

  11. Karen says:

    Hi P. Potter,

    That’s cool that you can hear your boyfriend on the radio on the way to work!

    I need to steal one of your goals — “Get my sh*t together.”

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Laney,

    Good luck on your interview! I hope you get the job!

  13. Karen says:

    Hi Karen Too,

    Calm is always good for a Monday. 🙂 Girl, isn’t the big day right around the conrer?

    BTW, I got my bridesmaids dress, finally! Thank gawd it fits. The bust area is a little loose, but shoot, I’ll just stuff my bra or something.

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Tania,

    Happy Monday to you too! LOL, Batman Begins is on at least three times a week. I so heart C.Bale! Le sigh. 🙂

    I wonder if Joaquin can actually carry a tune, hmm.

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Brittany,

    Glad to hear that you are doing better today. If you hang on, I will too.

    Oh, and that’s exciting that your Bed Bath and Beyond has a makeup section. Do you have a coupon?

  16. Karen says:

    Hi Katee,

    Nice! Aren’t LM polishes great?

  17. Ellery says:

    I decided to get some Prismacolor markers since he’s always wanted some. He’s really into drawing but he doesn’t have enough money for them so I thought it’d be nice.

    And of course! Any recommendations? The one I lost was Too Faced Jealousy.

  18. Karen says:

    Hi Ellery,

    That’s a really fabulous present. My little brother is also in drawing and I got him a set a few years ago… he really loved it! You’re BFF will think you are tops. 🙂

    That Too Faced shade is beautiful… I don’t have that one but have it on my list. My favorite green shadow is probably MAC’s Swimming.

  19. Tekoa says:

    *composes an Ode to Tabs* Oh wonderful feline, how strip-ed you are. Your fur is glossy. Your eyes see far. If we provide tribute of milk or mouse will you favor the house with a purr?

  20. Karen says:

    Oh, Tekoa! If only Tabs was here so that I could read this to him. Right now it’s *pouring* outside and he’s somewhere out there…

    I miss him, even though I know he comes over solely for my technology and ability to open canned goods.

    Give you kitties hugs for me.

    I just got home from school and I stopped by TJ Maxx on my way home and scored some Stila eyeshadow pots for $3.99 apiece. I’m pretty sure they don’t make them anymore, but that’s okay. Still made me happy 🙂

  48. Holly says:

    Hi Karen,
    I am loving Double Wear foundation at the moment but its not really what I would like to wear, I am having trouble with my skin at the moment, it has become super oily and I am having constant break outs so double wear is perfect for me at the moment as it is a full coverage so its hiding all my redness and spots well and is really keeping the oil down throughout the day! I woul reconmend it for anybody who really wants a heavy coverage and something that really absorbs oil and lasts all day but I much prefer lighter textures with a bit more satin finish like teint innocence!

  49. tania says:

    Karen I have no idea if poor Joaquin can sing or not. In other random yet hysterical news: Did you laugh hysrerically like I did when Heidi got fired on The Hills last night? OMG! One of the biggest no no’s is drinking and working heck most bartenders don’t drink at the office!!

  51. Karen says:

    Hi Tania,

    Eeeek! I saw that last night, too! What I couldn’t believe was how she totally gave her boss attitude when he confronted her about it at the event. Honestly, her singing career better take off (have you seen her video where she’s dressed up in a 80s leotard?) because nobody’s going to hire her.

  52. Karen says:

    Hi Lydia,

    I am looking forward to work today, too… I don’t think that’s sick at all! I think it’s healthy to enjoy what you do and to look forward to it.

    Have a good week!

  53. Karen says:

    Hi Holly,

    Hmmm… I sounds like it would be *great* for photography. Is it very matte?

    Hi Ditte,

    I saw that movie a few years ago — it’s good. It does not hurt that Gael García Bernal is easy on the eyes. 🙂

    Hi Ellie Paddy,

    Glad to hear you are really happy! That’s always wonderful to hear.

    Hi Lexi,

    Aww… I can’t believe the day has arrived. 🙁 I remember you talking about it in October and it seems to have come so quickly.

    Hope your first day back goes smoothly. 🙂

    Hi Karen,
    Yes it is a totally matte finish so I keep it well way from my eye area but i tend to use MAC creme blush on my cheeks or a shimmery powder of some sort so it doesnt look too flat!
    It does look great on photos, it would be perfect for a bride because it doesnt move all day!
    I love how it doesnt transfer onto my clothes too!
    Im actually getting the HUGE Estee Lauder Christmas packs tomorrow – its meant to be an offer which you are allowed to buy for £40 when you buy Lauder fragrance but my friend on the counter is allowing me to buy one without buying the fragrance so i will get it all for about £30 with my discount 🙂 It is amazing it has a huge shadow pallette, a blush palette, brushes, lipsticks and lots of other things! Im sooo excited to get my hands on it 😀

    Hi Holly,

    Hmm, I’ll have to look that up when I hit up the counters. Florida is very humid so I’ll need something that photographs well and doesn’t move.

    OoOOO, that EL pack sounds AMAZING! Do you love it?

    Hi Karen,
    The Estee Lauder pack is amazing value for money for sure and would be a great start up pack for somebody just getting into makeup but for me the quality of the products is really hit and miss.

    I really like the eye shadows they are all pretty comparable to MAC, well pigmented, easy to blend and apply and the colour range is great, I love one of the lipsticks, the colour is called Pink Champagne and is a perfect semi cool toned pink which works great with my colouring and the 2 lip glosses are beautiful but other than that the other products aren’t great.

    The 2 blushers and the bronzer hardly register on my skin and this really isn’t a problem i have ever had before, im a pretty run of the mill light tanned blonde so dont ever really have problems with pigmentation but these just dont work for me!

    I HATE the eye makeup remover it would take me lots of rubbing to make it work which i am so not prepared to do on my eyes, the brushes are shockingly poor quality and the eye kohl is the hardest I have ever tried!

    I realy think if you didnt have that much experience with high quality makeup and just wanted a cheap start out pack it would be a good buy but for me not so much!
