    • Karen says:

      Hi Kelly,

      I hear you about stressin’ over fine lines. I’m in the same boat! I’m thinking I’ll gonna ask a dermatologist for a prescription for Retin-A becuse it’s got so much scientific research behind it. Hopefully it’ll work.

      Anyway, how was Vegas? Did you have fun with your girls?

  11. Faye says:

    1. Mood:
    I have a huge, blinding (literally), nausea-inducing migraine, and I can’t leave work just yet. So that’s pretty much the mood of the moment. Also, I have to get my picture taken this week for work, with the Commissioner of Social Security (awards ceremony), and a huge whitehead popped up two inches from my lip. I haven’t had one like that since 16. So, not too happy about that.

    2. This morning I told myself to _____.
    Not think about everything I have to do this week, just take it one day at a time.

    3. Three bits of hard-learned makeup advice:
    1) Just because something is loved by many doesn’t mean it will work for you; 2) always ask for samples of those super-expensive skincare products first, because chances are they’ll break you out; 3) it takes a long time to find a good red if you have pale skin.

    4. Last text message I sent:
    Don’t text much, more email (easier with the Blackberry) but I totally agree on missing Finola on How Do I Look?

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    Nothing on the eyes, just C de P underye concealer; Lipstick Queen Big Bang Gloss in Energy; Chanel JC in Narcisse, the Euro version.

    6. Worst current skin issue:
    See #1, sigh.

    7. ____ make(s) me happy.
    A good book, a hot bath on a cold day, a really great, thorough, exhausting cardio workout.

    8. ____ make(s) me bitchy.
    If I listed all the things that did this, you’d think I was a real cranky pants .

    9. Outfit:
    Bone colored suit, navy shirt.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Get through the week!

    P.S. Karen, if you read this, what is the name of that gorgeous-looking lilac-colored Glossimer in your picture? I can’t believe there’s a Glossimer I don’t have, and that looks so pretty.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Faye,

      I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who’s sorely missing Finola. A few years ago the show producers e-mailed my friend, J-Money… she had sent in a request for us to get our BFF, Cindy a makeover. Unfortch she never followed up, so now I’ll never get to meet Finola, boo!

      As for that Chanel Glossimer, that’s Delight from Fall 2008. :)

    I don’t have time to do the quiz, but I just had to leave a gushing little note re: your fabulous Chanel Glossimer collection!!! *Sigh*

  19. Faye says:

    Hey Karen,

    I am embarrassed to admit I’ve been a huge fan of Finola’s since I was a kid — I used to watch General Hospital over at my friend’s house after school, and she was on for years. I actually met her in person at a fundraising event she did years ago for a Darfur-based women’s charity — she is super-cool and really funny. I’m sorry your friends didn’t get to meet her!

    You know, I think I tried on that Glossimer and it didn’t go quite lilac on me, so I didn’t buy it. I’m always seeing stuff I tried on or bought already and forgetting that, LOL.

    3. Three bits of hard-learned makeup advice:
    1) Never attempt to do use liquid liner when your hands are shaky 2) Seriously, do not use any kind of lipgloss on windy days here in Chicagoland. You will regret it. 3) A really moisturizing products here in the bitter cold with wind coming from lakefront winters is a must unless you really love drier than the Sahara Desert skin.

    Zits, when my classes are cancelled and I’m not notified, rude people, my brother eating HALF a block of my cheese without asking in one hour ike he did last night, when people move around my things without asking, finding my Nutella jar empty, when no one pulls out a new loaf of bread when they use the last slices or finding my brother has been using my Neutrogena anti-residue shampoo without asking (he has no qualms using half of my 4 oz. bottle in one go). Generally, my little brother makes me bitchy and pissy as he has absolutely no manners and swears worse than any sailor I’ve ever met. Did I mention he’s only 22 months younger than me? Oh yea, tags on my shirts; they make my skin itch.

    9. Outfit:
    Medium-washed denim cuffed knee-length shorts, a blue spaghetti strap under a black button down short sleeve shirt, tribeca black with cream flower and butterfly embroidery flats.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Get my hiney in gear and start writing my Gender & Sexuality essay and work on my Children’s Lit. essay. Cut the tag out of my black buttondown shirt as it’s driving me cuckoo. Pray to the rain gods to go rain somewhere else other than here. Study for the geography quiz I have today (oops).

I noticed one in your photo that seemed to be a favorite and I was seeing light in the tube. Did that one happen to be Candy Glow??? I have that one, too.

  35. Kelly says:

    I have been thinking the same thing about going to my derm and asking for it!

    Vegas was fun! I have come to the realization though that it’s really for young people. I felt so old and lame walking around with all these 21 year old girls in 5″ heels with tight dresses on and I’m all geriatric in my cargo shorts and tennis shoes. The pool at Bellagio made up for it though :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kelly,

      The Bellagio is such a neat hotel. I love the garden and the ceiling in the lobby… I’ve never been to the pool but I bet it was amazing!

      Isn’t it weird to realize that you aren’t automatically in the age bracket that includes the youngins? That hit me last year like a ton of BRICKS.

      Did you win any money?

    Yes she is an indoor cat for all her life. She is a bit terrified of the great outdoors. I have an extremely hard time taking her to the vet.

      Hi Amy,

      I think vet visits are the burden of most cat owners. Tabs is a pain to get into his cat carrier. The job requires two people and some serious trickery! Once he’s in he starts wailing immediately. It’s very traumatic all around!
