    hi karen!
    stopping by to say hi for the week as usual. it’s funny how tabs looks so much like daria werbowy for lancome (i guess it’s the eyes)!

    i’ve been craving a fuchsia/hot pink lip stain/sheer wash or color recently… got any recommendations? i’m fairly light skinned (MAC NC20 at my DARKEST, post-summer state) and have ivory/yellow undertones. bobbi brown lip gloss in hot pink is the closest i got to, but no lasting power on that one (and also leaves loads of hot pink on my guy’s face), and the stickiness forces me to layer it with lip balm… it’s so hard to find that one perfect holy grail color!

    wishing you a great week!

    Le list

    Mood: productive! i actually got seven hours sleep last night, so i’m running on less caffeine!

    Eyeshadow: PUPA cosmetics natural eyes 01 (satiny peach-nude), etude eyeshadow single in london brown (shimmery neutral golden brown with peach undertones), benefit high beam under the brow bones

    Fragrance: lolita lempicka le premier parfum l’eau de minuit (my boy’s favorite! makes him all drooly)

    Anxious about…: actually doing EVERYTHING that’s on my plate this week. every single day until saturday starts at six thirty, and ends at one thirty in the morning.

    Happy about…: having decaffeinated successfully.

    Blush: benefit high beam on cheekbones, l’oreal paris true match super-blendable blush in baby blossom C1/2/3 on apples.

    Nails: creative nail desigh toughen up + super shiney topcoat. filed square. trying to grow them out nicely

    Morning drink: drip coffee, black with two sugars

    Song of the day: cumparasita (electrotango remix) – my argentine tango piece for the 22th of november!

    Goals for the week: tough it out for the next two weeks and get ahead so when second round of midterms come out, i can make it to dance practice. spend one day just cuddling on the sofa with my man and a plate of nachos 🙂

    Hi Yadiq,

    Good luck getting through this week… I’m right with you with the zen flow. I need it ASAP!

  42. Karen says:

    Hi Caro,

    How fun! I’ve never seen the Harlem Globetrotters live, but I always thought they were so cool when I saw them on TV! Enjoy your time with your family. 🙂

  43. Karen says:

    Hi Nadine,

    Girl, what did you pick up on your shopping trip? Details, details!

  44. Karen says:

    Hi Lexi,

    Oh no! Will she be at a daycare nearby? I hope so…

    I love that song by Estelle. I’ve heard a couple of her other songs on Pandora and I liked them. What your fave song from her CD? I will try to track it down!

  45. Karen says:

    Hi Jenna,

    LOL, that Dunkin doughnuts coffee is fab!

    I am so glad to know I’m not the only one who rocks out to that song. I’ve listened to it about a billion times today.

    Lemme know if you think of a costume. I’m still brain stormin’. 🙂

  46. Karen says:

    Hi Ellery,

    I am really glad to hear that you’re feeling better. Are you feeling 100%?

    You know I’m a shoe freak so I hope you send me a pic to your new kicks!

    Wow, I’m so happy for you! Moving in with the BF is a big step… when El Hub and I first moved in together we went through a transition period (we fought a lot about cleaning, as we have different ideas of clean) where it was kinda rough, but after that everything got better and better.

    HOW CUTE are those costumes! I might get Tabs a red wig that looks like Pippi Longstocking, but I’ll end up getting that if I can’t find anything better. I also doubt that he’ll wear it for long.

  47. Karen says:

    Hi Lisa,

    I am with you — I hope this week will be better, too.

    How are you liking your BB palette?

  48. Karen says:

    Hi Laura B.,

    I hear ya. When it gets cold and dreary I get bummed about the weather, too.

    Good for you for starting your Christmas shopping! I need to start mine, too.

  49. Karen says:

    I’m a total clean freak, I think I’ll be the one doing the cleaning since my BF is a typical man and doesn’t care about mess. I think we’re gonna stay at his house for a few days to see what it’s like to live together, then move in, since we’ll be moving into a property his dad owns.

    Tabs would look so adorable, you have to take pictures of him! I hate the way cats are with clothes and costumes, lol, dog’s just sit there with them on.

    “So What” is a great workout song. I love it! my gym playlist looks like i stole it off of a 15 year old girls iPod and i do. not. care.

  58. Karen says:

    Hi Lehea,

    I love that Nu Shooz song. 🙂

    Have fun with your new quad and lip set. Can’t wait to hear your about your looks with the quad, woot! MAC always has great stuff out for holiday!

  59. Karen says:

    Hi Daya,

    Isn’t that a great song? I can’t stop rocking out to it.

    I will paint my nails (hopefully tonight, if Tabs lets me LOL) and then put up a pic. It is a beautiful color, so I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. 🙂

  60. Karen says:

    Hi Brittany,

    Oh no! Is your kitty okay?

    Hi Tali,

    I hope you feel better soon. Take care of yourself… drink lots of water, get rest, all that good stuff. 🙂

  62. Karen says:

    Hi Lars,

    Your Blonde’s Gold and Black Canvas combo sounds so pretty! I’m going to have to try and do that with a few items I have around here. 🙂

    I say go for the fishnets! In black!

  63. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    I am so happy to hear that you have a great guy in your life. A guy that exerts the effort to make convo about makeup because he knows it’s your hobby has gotta be special.

    I hope he realizes how lucky he is to have you, too. 🙂

  64. Karen says:

    Hi Tania,

    Girl, I’m having a hard time with the new season! Are you liking it so far? I am getting impatient for the story to get going already.

    I will be right along side you working late!

  65. Karen says:

    Hi Elle,

    Hope everything with the doggie is okay. Why were you two up so late?

    I am a sucker for a good Britney song, too. I can’t lie, I’m guilty of going to a Britney concert!

    What’s your Halloween costume?

  66. Karen says:

    Hi Fie,

    How nice! What dish/dishes did you make? I need some cooking lessons, LOL.

    And happy early birthday!

  67. Karen says:

    Hi Jennifer,

    Nice! What eyeshadows did you get?

  68. Karen says:

    Hi Jessica,

    It’s great to meet you! I’m so glad you decided to pop by and say hello. 🙂 I’m glad to help fuel your beauty addiction. 🙂 What are your favorite brands/products?

    Have a good week!

  69. Karen says:

    Hi Karen Too,

    Oh! The accessories are the best part! Do you have shoes for the dress?

  70. Karen says:

    Hi Almira,

    What a fun manicure. 🙂 I wish I could pull that off!

  71. Karen says:

    Hi Holly,

    Cute! How are you liking your new phone? I’m jealous that it’s pink! 🙂

  72. Karen says:

    Hi Casey Ann,

    Yay, don’t you love short weeks? Are you doing anything fun on your Friday off?

  73. Karen says:

    Hi Tiera,

    Girl, you and your POG! LOL, okay, I’m just totally jealous that I can’t get it on the mainland…

  74. Karen says:

    Hi Milan,

    Sweet!! I will have to vicariously live through your haircut. I really want to chop mine off, but I don’t want to do anything as a reaction to work stress. 🙂 Do you think you’re going to do a big change?

  75. Karen says:

    Hi Chamayne,

    I hope you’re having a good week so far… hang in there. 🙂

  76. Karen says:

    Hi Crystal G.,

    What a pretty eye! I will have to try that combo.

    I hope everything goes smoothly on Wednesday. I’ll be sending you good vibes…

  77. Karen says:

    Hi Holly,

    Girl, are you finally gonna get your self to Target this time around?!? I hope so! 😉

    LOL, if only I was your customer at your counter. I’d so help you make your sales goal!

    What did you get your mom for her birthday?

  78. Karen says:

    Hi NurseExec,

    Hey girlie, I hope things go smoothly for you on Wednesday. Are you all mentally ready for your surgery? I’ll be thinking of you…

  79. Karen says:

    Hi Michelle,

    Fun! How was the game? Did you have a good time?

  80. Karen says:

    Hi GG,

    I am so with you on the Britney songs! Her music is one of my not-so-guilty pleasures.

    Aww, those crushes can be so fun!

  81. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    Oh no… I hope you are feeling a little better. Are things alright on your end?

    Glad to hear about your new hair, though. Did you go for a big change?

  82. Karen says:

    Hi Erica,

    Aveda hair products have the *best* scents! Hope you are having a good week!

  83. Karen says:

    Hi Ines,

    It’s always so good to hear from you!

    After reading your pink lip request I immediately thought of Laura Mercier’s Rose Glace Lip Glace ($22). The website says that it’s red pink, but on me it registers as a hot pink. It packs a lot of color, but it isn’t too sticky. Dunno if you even have a LM counter near you, but if you do let me know, and I can do a swatch for you.

    If not, then we’ll move onto round two, aka, other options!

  84. Karen says:

    Hi Shana T,

    How are ya girl? Don’t you love getting laundry out of the way? I swear it’s my least favorite chore, but I love knowing that it’s done. 🙂

    And LOL, I do the same thing with new makeup! I tote it around with me, too. Sometimes I keep it with me on my desk when I write, like a pet.

  85. Karen says:

    Hi Ditte,

    FUN! What’s the party for? I’ll bring the wine and cupcakes!
    J/K! 😉 I hope it everything goes smoothly. I know it can be stressful being the hostess.

  86. Karen says:

    Hi Ellie Paddy,

    How did the facial go? I haven’t tried microdermabrasion, but have friends who love it.

    Have a good week!

  87. Karen says:

    Hi Ellery,

    Glad to hear you are feeling better!

    A trial run is a good idea. Maybe you two can discuss how you feel about cleaning and how chores are distributed and whatnot. Also there’s the matter of paying for groceries and bills… Getting through all the mechanics and day-to-day details can be a challenge at first, but I swear it’ll still be romantic and wonderful! You will learn so much about your partner and it’s definitely a learning experience to live with somebody you are committed to.

    Will Babycake be moving in, too?!

  88. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    Girl, you know I loves me some Stila Icon! I think I have Barefoot Contessa around here somewhere, too!

    Funny, when I wore Very Irresistible the other day I could really smell the roses, and I remembered how you said that you loved the rose scent from that perfume, too. It really is super femme and just beautiful!

  89. Karen says:

    Hi Lydia,

    Hope you’re hanging in there… if you remember to breathe, I will too. 🙂

  90. Karen says:

    Hi Music_Is_Freedom,

    How lovely! That’s so cute that he whistles and chirps that line, aww. What kind of bird is he?

  91. Karen says:

    Hi Jane,

    My ipod is the same way. Danity Kane, JoJo… I swear it’s like Limited Too exploded on my workout songs list.

  92. Karen B says:

    It is, very feminine. And a bit flirtier than my Chloé one (which also has rose notes).

  93. Holly says:

    Hi Karen,

    I realllyyy want to get to Target, im going to research the closest ones to the city before and try and make a trip haha i think i may be reaching a new makeup related low there!!

    I bought my mum some eyelash curlers, the Chanel Spices quad and some Chance Eau Fraiche shimmering body lotion (her fave fragrance the body lotion was limited edition and they all sold out but i managed to get my hands on some in Rome so she was really happy!)

  94. Elle says:

    RE: Hi Ellie Paddy,

    How did the facial go? I haven’t tried microdermabrasion, but have friends who love it.

    Have a good week!

    REPLY: Facial went amazingly! There’s a huge difference in my skin, its softer, smoother and glowing. Highly recomnd it.

  95. Ditte says:

    I hope it will go smoothly too – no drama, please 🙂
    It is because of my birthday, but only about 60% of the guests picked up on that, because I didn’t give them a reason for my party, which is a couple of days before my birthday 😉

  96. Music_Is_Freedom says:

    He’s a cockatiel. They’re not so much talkers like budgies, but when he wants to, he’ll start whistling and repeating the few phrases he does know for all to hear. It’s cute.

  97. Megan says:

    Yeah he’s great. Actually I meant to tell you…so generally he’ll see me reading something on my laptop and laughing and his response is usually…”Is that your makeup friend.” Which is totally how he refers to you…as my makeup friend. So the other day we went to a pick your own farm and picked some apples and a few of the last tomatoes and peppers since it hadn’t frosted yet. When we left we were trying to decide where to go…and he said “Okay go home and eat now, or go to Walmart…You must Decide.” LOL I think I may talk to him too much about makeup :)…and yeah I told him that it was you must choose…

  98. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    I will have to give the Chloe scent a sniff. I love those rose notes! Have you ever smelled YSL Paris? That was the first rose perfume I ever feel deeply in love with.

  99. Karen says:

    Hi Holly,

    GIRL, trust me. You won’t regret going there. It’s a lot of fun… I had a similar drugstore makeup nirvana experience when I went to Boots in the UK. I went NUTS in there. My only regret is not buying more bottles of Garnier Body Cocoon. *tears*

    What a nice present! I’m sure she was thrilled when she opened it up. Did you guys go to dinner or anything?

    I swear I give my mom makeup and she doesn’t use it. 🙁

  100. Karen says:

    Hi Elle,

    Thanks for letting me know! I’m usually pretty hands off regarding my skin — I don’t like to do anything that requires mechanical brushes or harsh buffing, but I’ve heard so many great things about microdermabrasion from my friends.

  101. Karen says:

    Hi Ditte,

    Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Ditte… happy birthday to you!

    The last time I had a big birthday party was for my 30th birthday. My parents, my good friends and El Hub (who was El Fiancee at the time), took me to this Filipino drag queen show/karaoke bar/restaurant. It was AWESOME. 🙂

    Is everything ready to go? Cake, snacks, etc.? Maybe the birthday fairy will send you a really fast, beautiful bike!

  102. Karen says:

    Hi Music_Is_Freedom,

    That’s really precious. I wanted to get a budgie for a long time, but now that Tabs is in the picture I dunno. I don’t want to stress the poor bird out, you know? Plus, I’d want to give it the freedom to fly around the house once in awhile without fearing for its life!

    Was it hard to train him? What’s his name?

  103. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    LOL! That’s too cute… I now have a nickname! “Your makeup friend,” awww!

    Watch out… now that you’ve opened up the YOU MUST CHOOSE door into your everyday life you’ll start thinking of lots of warped scenarios. It happens to almost everyone, LOL.

    How did you two meet?

  104. Ditte says:

    Thanks – yeah, everything is almost ready to go 🙂
    LOL – don’t have a birthday fairy that’s rich, though 😉

  105. Holly says:

    Hi Karen,
    Yeah Boots is amazing, particularly the stores like I work in because they have such a wide range from high end like Chanel to bargain drug store brands!
    I have never actually tried Garnier body cocoon but i have just added it to my list of things im going to buy on monday 3rd November when we are having a special day where Boots have doubled our staff discount so i will get 25% off high end brands and 50% off boots stuff!! I think im going to try some protect and perfect stuff as it will be half price and i must be one of the only women in england who hasn’t tried it yet!!

  106. I forgot to do this on Monday but I still want to! It’s Thursday! Oh well,

    Le list

    Mood: Relaxed and happy. I’m on Fall break with two friends

    I had the same Spice Creamer in my coffee this morning 🙂


    I went by Sally this morning and they hadn’t heard anything about the new nail polishes you posted! 🙁

  108. Karen says:

    Hi Daya,

    Hmmm, that’s interesting. The Sally website just announced that they just started carrying the line (here’s the link to the site), so maybe they haven’t rolled it out to that store yet.

    You could always order online from 8ty8beauty — it’s cheaper per bottle!

  109. Megan says:

    LOL It’s funny to me now how we met because the boyf is pretty shy… but anyway one evening after work last January I decided to go to circuit city to look for a phone charger because I had lost mine over the holidays and it was right down the street. So being the Klutz that I am, I spilled like half the contents of my purse in the parking lot and he was coming out of circuit city and happened to walk by and he was nice enough to stop and help me pick up my stuff… and I of course thanked him and made some comment about being a klutz and we just started talking. It’s funny now…because when I remember back I can in my mind see how uncomfortable he was…although it didn’t fully register at the time LOL I mean I don’t really go out of my way to talk to strangers…but I’m pretty friendly once I do talk to someone. The thing is that the DC area is not really a super-friendly area. So the boyf had just days before made a new years resolution to make efforts to meet new people…because he only had a couple friends in the area…and the aforementioned shyness did not lend to getting out and making tons of friends. So thus when I started talking to him he decided it was the perfect opportunity to try to overcome his shyness and talk to me. 🙂
