    Lucky you! I am so jealous that you have this week off. Are you going to go on any trips or do anything special?

  41. Karen says:

    Hi Anna,

    You shoes sound so cute. Girl, do you know about moleskin? I swear it’s the only way I can wear heels!

  42. Karen says:

    Hi Brittany,

    One of my favorite quotes is, “This too shall pass.”

    I am so sorry both for the loss of your grandfather and about the breakup with your fiancee. It sounds like it’s gonna be a challenging week — you’ll have to tend to your heart and all those papers and still keep it together. Be strong, take care of yourself, and when you find yourself feeling overwhelmed remind yourself that you can get through this.

    Big hugs to you. Sending strength your way…

  43. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    Oh! I was eyeing some Lancome concealer a few weeks ago and I’m totally intrigued. Which one do you have? I am debating between these two:

    Lancome Waterproof Concealer
    Lancome Maquicomplet Concealer

  44. Karen says:

    Hi Fie,

    Isn’t Moisturelush amazing? Do you have the eye or face cream?

  45. Karen says:

    Hi Tatiana,

    Woo hoo for Woodwinked!! 🙂

    How cute does your coat sound! What shade of green is it? Forest, kelly? I got a kelly green coat from H&M for 40 bucks a while back and it surprisingly goes with lots of outfits.

  46. Karen says:

    Hi Ellery,

    Aww, sweetie. So sorry to hear about your breakup. Sounds like you have a good attitude about it, though, which is nice to hear. If you’re ever feeling bummed about just listen to Christina Aguilera’s song Fighter and you’ll be feeling fierce in seconds.

    YAY! Babycake gets a homie! How did it go at the shelter? Anybody tug at your heart?

    Speaking of kitties, I spent too much time on this site today:


    Kinda random but I know you love celeb fragrances… have you’ve smelled the new Paris Hilton one yet? It’s called “Fairy Dust.”

  47. Karen says:

    Hi Lydia,

    Work it out, girl! You are my exercising hero!

  48. Karen says:

    Hi Aleks!!

    That’s great that your mom found a new job. 🙂 When mom is happy the whole family is happy, that’s for sure.

    Woo hoo on the new job starting soon! A lil’ extra pocket change during the holiday season is *always* good.

    Things on this end are good. I’ve been hanging in there… I’m pretty happy, but I’ve just had a lot on my plate in terms of my day job so it’s been a challenging three weeks. My work load will get better after this week, though, which is a huge relief.

    Glad to hear that you are feeling extraordinarily happy. That’s a fantastic way to start your week!

  49. Karen says:

    Hi Jennifer,

    I think that scent has lots of good things going for it… I wanted it to smell a bit more vanilla one me, though. I did like the citrus notes!

    LOL about your Nutrigrain bar addiction. I’m partial to apple, myself.

  50. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    OoOooo those apple and pear crisps sound so good!

    I’m going to TJ’s this week. I am anticipating those stars coming back into my life.

    Good luck on your presentation tomorrow. I hope it goes smoothly and that you knock it outta the park!

  51. Karen says:

    Hi Jessica,

    Yay! Another Beauty Crunch addict! 🙂

    There was a set of three red Stila lipglazes that I’m kicking myself for not getting last week. It’s all sold out, 🙁

  52. Karen says:

    Hi Beth,

    🙂 Thanks! I’m glad he’s home, too. He was waiting at the door when I got home from work. It was pretty cute.

    Beautiful is one of those scents uber femme, classic scents. Love it!

    I am with you on getting through the next four days. Just gotta make it to the end of the week!

  53. Karen says:

    Hi Shiny,

    Ah, gotta love the Viva Glam! What’s your fave? Mine is prolly Viva Glam V.

  54. Karen says:

    Hi Cloudburst,

    I did yesterday! Now I’m craving it 24/7. 🙂

    What’s on your MAC list?!?

  55. Karen says:

    Hi Ammura,

    Oh! I will put that DVD on my list. I am always looking for good workout ones.

    I hope the weather holds is nice when you get here for your conference. It’s been beautiful here lately… so sunny and warm!

  56. Karen says:

    Hi Tali,

    LOL about working out! Lucky you that your sweetie brought you a rose today… awww!

  57. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    I’ve read about it on yelp, but have yet to go. I love Sausalito. If I could I’d totally want to live in the neighborhood next to the movie theater where it’s flat (that way my house couldn’t slide down a hill when it rains, oy!).

    Hope you have a fantastic week! 🙂

  58. Karen says:

    Hi Chamayne,

    FUN! Are there lots of people in your water aerobics class? I’ve always wanted to go to one, but have yet to find one to try.

    Oh! And your eye look just reminded me about Fig. 1. It’s been a while since I’ve busted it out. *runs to MAC drawer*

  59. Karen says:

    Hi Christina,

    I hope you feel better soon. The man trubs will pass… you just gotta stay strong and remind yourself that it’ll get better.

    Take care of yourself!

  60. Karen says:

    Hi Jana,

    You are so sweet! It makes me happy to hear you visit the site the morning. 🙂

    Happy birthday! What will you do to celebrate?

  61. Karen says:

    Hi Katee,

    Congrats on your anniversary! Did you guys do anything special?

  62. Karen says:

    Hi Erica,

    How do you like your Bad Gal Blue? I tried the Plum version a month ago and it was just okay… it looked more brown than purple.

  63. Erica says:

    RE: How do you like your Bad Gal Blue? I tried the Plum version a month ago and it was just okay… it looked more brown than purple.

    This was the first Bad Gal formula I tried…I read that it “brightens eyes” and since I’m awake at 5am, I’m in need of some brightness…I actually don’t notice much of a difference in blue mascara from the black Dior Show or the Shu Uemura Basic mascaras I keep in my rotation. BUT I do like the formula…So when I need replacement mascara, I might end up getting Bad Gal in black. Still awaiting more reviews for Oscillation.

  66. Fie says:

    I have the face cream. It’s a saviour! I couldn’t use it in Malaysia because it was very humid and it would make my face oilier. But here, wow it’s amazing!

  67. Karen too says:

    Of course you can have my recipe Karen! Let me know what you think if you try them. 🙂

    Cinnamon and yoghurt breakfast pancakes

    2 cups flour
    3 tablespoons sugar
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 cup milk
    2 cups plain yoghurt
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    4 tablespoons melted butter

  68. Ellery says:

    I love that song! I listen to it when someone upsets me. 🙂 I haven’t listened to it yet though because it hasn’t really affected me… it’s kind of a relief, because he was a sayer not a doer and he waited for everything to happen, but i go out of my way TO make it happen so whatever. 😀

    I haven’t been to the shelter yet, my brother crashed his car so he’s using my dad’s so we have hardly any time to go out to the shelter. 🙁

    That website looks cool, I wish we had one like that in the UK!

    I haven’t smelt it yet, I can’t find it in stores but as soon as I see it I’ll smell it, I liked one of her perfumes but I can’t remember the name, I haven’t smelt the rest though.

  69. Karen says:

    Hi Erica,

    Moving mascara brushes freak me out! I am curious about it, but afraid I’ll totally poke my eye out.

  70. Karen says:

    Hi Ditte,

    Oh fantastic! I’m glad to hear that the birthday party went well. 🙂

    I’m guessing you got a few makeup related gifts, LOL!

  71. Karen says:

    Hi Ellie Paddy,

    Which Juicy Couture scent do you have? I just tried on Viva la Juicy yesterday!

  72. Karen says:

    Hi Fie,

    The face cream is really *amazing*. I actually finished an entire jar last winter… and that’s rare for me. It really changed how I felt about the MAC Skin Care line. Previous to that I didn’t think much of it!

  73. Karen says:

    Hi Karen Too,

    YAY! Thanks, m’dear! It sounds really delicious… I will try making them this weekend. 🙂

  74. Karen says:

    Hi Ellery,

    Me too. I also like to listen to it when I’m working out and I need an extra boost!

    Oh, I’ve known those kinds of people. Consider yourself lucky to have moved on.

    Aw, shucks… I was hoping that you’d have a “Babycake-gets-a-friend” story for me. Sorry to hear about your brother crashing his car. Is he okay?

    I haven’t smelled it yet, but I heard about it and have it on my list. If you ever see it around give CAN CAN a sniff. It’s probably my favorite one out of her entire collection.

  75. Brittany says:

    Thanks, Karen 🙂

    I’m doing alright. We kind of knew that my grandpa’s death was coming. He had a terminal illness for the past 20 years.

    The whole fiance thing was kind of a shock, but I’m just glad it happened now, not whenever we got married. I just can’t believe he couldn’t wait a week or two, but whatever. I’m not sad.

  76. Shana T says:
