43 Things I’m Thankful For: The Non-Makeup Edition

“As much as I can go on and on about eye liner, there are other things in life that I also cherish. Here’s the non-makeup edition of my list.”


43 Things I’m Thankful For: The Makeup Edition

“Have you heard of 43 Things? It’s a website where people make lists of 43 goals they want to achieve — learning French, building a better mouse trap, reading War and Peace, etc. It’s pretty fun to read the different hopes and dreams that people have… Here’s my list of 43 makeup and beauty things I’m thankful for.”

The LeSportsac Tokidoki Campeggio Bag: A Perfect Holiday Gift for Ladies on the Go!

“But the LeSportsac Tokidoki Campeggio Bag has been a lifesaver. I swear, the day this bag came into my life the clouds parted and birds started singing. This bag is roomy, light, comfortable and holds everything AND the kitchen sink while still having a sleek silhouette.”

Chanel Glossimer Lip Gloss, A Makeup Addiction in the Making

“The sparkle factor is high on these glosses. It’s very grown-up glitter though! I love looking at the color and seeing the different flecks of gold, silver, pink and green.”

5 Makeup and Beauty Tips from Paris Hilton

“Paris is known for her dewy, glowy skin. She said her secret is a weekly facial at Kate Somerville, a spa located down the street from her house. She and Kate are homies, and Paris gets treatments with extractions at the spa when she isn’t too busy with work.”

Holiday Gift Ideas for $5.00 or Less: DHC Aroma Oils

“I love giving unusual, hard-to-find gifts as stocking stuffers. I especially love finding cool stuff for a good price. DHC’s Aroma Oils smell yummy, moisturize well and cost a mere $3.50! You’ll be able to stuff all of those stockings and still have a few rupees left over to snag a bottle for yourself.”

Clinique Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift, a Dreamy Anti-Aging Skin Cream

“One neck cream that I’ve been using lately is Clinique’s Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift ($52.50). It’s an anti-aging moisturizer with retinol. There are three versions: oily/combination skin, dry/combination skin and very dry skin.”

    aww this is such a cute idea! the lists too cute

    if i told you my finacee got me a super cute tokidoki bag last xmas and i made him return it

    the thing was enormous! i could fit my purse and my gym bag in there

    i felt guilty but for what he spent i couldnt fathom the lack of practicality – so he exchanged it for a leather coach purse! woo hoo classic and never goes outta style !

    girl have i been sleeping under a rock all these years i got my 2 mika shu palettes today – et me tell you as you would say … i am in lurve! i cannot wait to try these on tonight i almost want to go to the bathroom in my office and wash off my current makeup my assistant thinks i am nuts cause my hands and arms look like a kid who has been playing with chalk i have swatches all over – lol

    Ha! Yes, I remember you enabling my Tokidoki and Chanel obsessions! Thanks, girl, what would I do without you? 😀

  6. Adriana says:

    Hi Karen!

    I’m new to your blog. This is a great list! I am oh so curious now with that clinique neck cream, I am almost 28 and I already have some lines on my neck. Do you think I should start using that cream? Thanks for everything you post, it’s just plain awesome!

  7. Karen says:

    Hi Almira,

    You totally should do a list. It’s very therapeutic and fun.

  8. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    I know. That was my “gateway” Chanel, LOL.

    I took it out a few days just to marvel at it. I’m still lovin’ it.

  9. Karen says:

    Hi P. Potter,

    Right! So cute!

  10. Karen says:

    Hi Yadiq,

    Yeah, my bag is pretty ginormous. I take it sometimes when I have to go to events because it fits *everything* and the kitchen sink.

    Are you having fun with your Mika Shu palettes at home? I hope so! You gotta fill me in with all the crazy combos you come up with. 🙂

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    LOL, everybody needs a makeup and accessories friend/enabler. I gladly will answer the call whenever you need it! I will also talk you out of stuff, too, cause I’m also good at tough love!

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Adriana,

    It’s nice to meet you! Yeah, I have a weird obsession with my neck. Do you wear sunscreen? That’s probably the best thing to start doing ASAP!

  14. Karen B says:

    I’m still loving mine too 🙂 Don’t get to play with it that often anymore though… way too early hours in the morning. But I’ll get it out again next week when I have a party 🙂

    Karen B´s last blog post..What colour today?

    I just discovered the Tokidoki Smashbox collection on ebay. I don’t know when it came out but the packaging is sooo adorable. I must collect it all! The handbags are adorable as well. There is something about a graphic, nylon bag that speaks to me *so says my terribly large Harajuku Lovers collection*
