7 Ways to Win a $50 eGift Card From Sephora!

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun

A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway

Chanel No 5

So late last night the TV kicked on by itself at exactly 3:15 AM, which I know from watching enough horror movies is also the witching hour. I was sound asleep at the time and heard what sounded like one of the real housewives yelling. At first I thought someone had broken into the house, so I woke up El Hub, who grabbed a machete from under the bed and went to check it out. (He keeps all kinds of things under there. Weapons, comic books — you know, the usual.)

Do ghosts like Bravo? I don’t know, I think they might. Because if I were haunting someone, that’s what I’d like. Some Lisa Vanderpump, a little Giggy, a few rattling pots and pans. Good times…

In other news, happy Saturday! :) And you know how we do it around here. I like to start the weekends with a giveaway, you know, something special just because.

    I have been using Tom’s of Maine Olive Oil bar soap to cleanse my face.

    • Kristina says:

      SO. I don’t have some super-cool supernatural experience I can talk about, but I have this one weird beauty tip my mum taught me ages ago. She’s from the Philippines, and she’s really against all that cosmetic mumbo-jumbo in terms of cleansing and hydrating your face, since she’s into doing things a little more au naturel and diy-ish. So she taught me to take those tiny Filipino limes, calamnsis, and squeeze out the juices of three or four of them, mix it with some melted coconut oil, and a load of brown sugar, and use that to exfoliate! It works WONDERS, and it hydrates too! Hope you guys try it out sometime, it changed my life!

  2. Claire says:

    I always wear my hair in a bun or pony tail when it’s hot. Especially when it’s almost 104 here in Sacramento! :)

    • Kiki says:

      I like to use Pantene mousse in my wet hair and then twist it up in a top knot bun on a hot day. It literally takes 3 seconds, but people always comment on my fancy do. I love it :)

  3. Silka says:

    OMG! The roof has to fall down on my husband for him to be awaken at that hour!

  4. Maggie says:

    My favorite face wash would have to be Angels on Bareskin from Lush. It’s gentle while still doing it’s job.

  5. Karina says:

    Supernatural experience? no, but I daily listen “La Mano Peluda”.

  6. Amanpreet says:

    I’ve recently started using a face wash by Organic Surge. :)

  7. camille says:

    creepy! when The Man was deployed, i would fall asleep to the TV. i woke up the next morning with it on, but swore i turned it off before i completely dozed off. so then, i started putting the TV to “sleep”. still creepy!

    it’s fricken a scorcher the next week! 110+, no joke! i did errands yesterday, and my make up managed not to melt off. and i wore my hair down! what the what?! i’m throwing my hair into a messy bun today. “ain’t nobody got time for that!”. oh, electricity bill! :( hope you’re staying cool over there!

  8. Katrina says:

    I am addicted to Partylite candles.

  9. MiMi says:

    I had a daydream about my ex and I standing on a busy corner in downtown chicago. he was on his way to class and was wearing two shirts. it was very hot out that day and i told him to take off both shirts. he had a blue t-shirt under his black button down shirt. i kept the blue one and took off all my clothes and put that on. i gave him his black shirt back. then i walked across the street and got on the train and went home.

  10. Elena T says:

    I have two cats as pets and they love to sleep in my bed, especially the girl, who loves to sleep on my pillow.

  11. Bree says:

    Chloe bear, my yorkiepoo, always sleeps with me. Shes the perfect sleeping buddy! Just don’t wake her from her beauty rest or the bear will be grouchy. Lol It’s comforting to know your pet is always there no matter what.

  12. jhessica says:

    we owned 7 pets but only 1 pet slept with my bed everyday.. my bebe sexy(minipin)

  13. Heather USA (Rafflecopter: Rosie Areola) says:

    I’m using Biore’ face washes atm.

  14. Alison says:

    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

  15. Tiffanie says:

    That’s such a beautiful picture! I love Chanel perfume bottles. I have mine displayed in our bathroom with a necklace my son made for me similarly draped over it.

  16. Nessa says:

    My brain might’ve froze on the fact that OMG Gift card to Sephora! I adore shopping there. Their nail polishes were the very first ones I ever got (they started my huge collection really). <33333

  17. Agata says:

    My favorite face wash is still Vichy Normaderm, I use it with my Mia. Although I had a mini tube of a Soap and Glory wash with little scrubbing beads (I don’t remember the name of it) and it was amazing. I kept forgetting to get a full size from Sephora every time I go there.

    Happy weekend!

  18. MK says:

    I recently discovered Dermadoctor’s Ain’t Misbehavin’ Medicated AHA/BHA cleanser, and I am seriously obsessed. It’s a little pricey, but you get a lot of product. It has completely transformed my skin!

  19. Lydia says:

    My 2 cats do sleep in bed with me!

  20. JudiC says:

    Maxi, our 100 lb. lab, sleeps with us (usually on me). Honeycat sleeps wherever she chooses!

  21. Tyler says:

    I’ve been loving the Yes to Cucumbers daily gel cleanser!

  22. lelacarolina says:

    My favorite, and current, cleanser is Clarins Foaming Cleanser…. amazing!

  23. Ciara M says:

    As a kid I once woke up to see a little girl standing in my hallway! Out of fright I remember putting my head back under the covers and when I took another peek she was gone. Pretty creepy, hopefully it was only a dream though, but it seemed pretty real!
    I recently got a new puppy Lucy and she’s a Maltichon :) She sleeps with me now too and my other dog Riley sleeps with my mum. They’re such cuties!
    & Yankee candles are amazing. I think they’re worth the extra money if they last a good amount of time!

  24. stephanie says:

    i use Olay products

  25. Jennifer Pham says:

    Just saw WWZ (movie)! Not bad . . . it had a similar worldview focus like the book. That was pretty much all they had in common though :)

  26. Bridget says:

    You know, we live in a “haunted” house, and nothing weird has ever happened. Kind of sad!

  27. Millie says:

    Hi, Karen! I prefer the candles on sale at Kohl’s rather than the expensive ones. Well, I really haven’t tried those pricey ones but I’d rather save my money to buy high-end cosmetics than on candles.

  28. Jennifer Rivera says:

    I haven’t bought expensive candles but would like to buy one to see if it’s worth the price.

  29. Pam says:

    I use the SK-II face wash. Love it.

  30. karen says:

    I sleep on my stomach with one leg bent and the cat who owns me likes to curl up in the triangle of space made my my bent knee.

  31. GB says:

    I love Clean & Clear’s foaming facial cleanser for sensitive skin — I’ve been using it for years.

  32. Teri B says:

    Wow. We are almost halfway through this year. Time flies!

  33. Chris says:

    It is soooo hot! I’m craving a smoothie.

  34. Emily says:

    I neeeeed new blush!

  35. Elena says:

    My 2 cats love to sleep with me

  36. Joanne says:

  37. liz says:

    Yep my orange tab sleeps in bed with me I just dont like it when he wokes me up waaay too early coz hes hungry..ooihh

  38. Petunia says:

    I was unaware there was an option for “pets” to sleep elsewhere? I thought the only option was for me to get out of bed and sleep elsewhere. Hmmm.

  39. Icequeen81 says:

    My face wash is an organic cucumber+ glycerin soap in the morning and a organic vitamin E glycerin soap at night
    No preservatives, cruelty free etc

  40. Denise says:

    Allergies prevent me from having pets, but if I had one, I don’t think I’d want it to sleep in bed with me. I sometimes toss pillows off the bed at night if they’re in my way, and I’d worry I’d do the same to an animal.

  41. Brenda Penton says:

    I use benefit’s foamingly clean fash wash.

  42. Melissa says:

    Oh, this would reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally hit the spot right now!

  43. Heidi says:

    Missy sleeps wherever Missy wants to sleep!

  44. Rachel B. says:

    I was reading Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot at night… not recommended as bedtime literature.

  45. Melody Zhao says:

    Thank you for the giveaway! Can’t wait for marc Jacobs makeup at Sephora <3

  46. NN1234 says:

    Can someone recommend a night time moisturizer for combination skin? Thanks!

  47. Carolyn says:

    I tend to steer clear of most product in the summer because I hate feeling sticky. Instead, I use a dab of Lush’s R&B after I towel dry, then I blow dry until my hair is about 75% dry. I finish with one squirt of Bumble and Bumble’s styling lotion on my part, just to smooth down weirdness.

  48. Clemence says:

    I’ve been using the Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Face Cleanser.

  49. Sweeks1980 says:

    My cat more often than not will sleep on the rug by my bed. However, once in a while, he’ll get on the bed and take up most of it (I still use a twin).

  50. I never had a supernatural experience!

  51. Jessie C. says:

    I’ve been using Neutrogena face wash

  52. Doreena says:

    Looking forward to a nice quiet relaxing weekend! Hope Y’all have the same!

  53. meredith says:

    I’ve been using burt’s bees sensitive skin cleanser recently. I don’t have a holy grail cleanser.

  54. Poorva says:

    im absolutely addicted to lip glosses at the moment! never in my life have hoarded so many :P

  55. sienna says:

    my cat sleeps at the foot of our bed, left side, every night! ive been using an aveda face wash, love it!

  56. Moz says:

    Love to win sth here :)

  57. Crystal says:

    I’ve been using the neutrogena acne stress control face wash

  58. Jeanne says:

    Guess I’m not the only one who lets their dogs sleep with them!!!

  59. Kelsey says:

    My two kitties always sleep with me – it’s the reason hubby and I got a king bed. Nothing’s better than waking up to little puffballs.

  60. Roxanne says:

    The only cleanser I use for my face is Cetaphil. Love it.

  61. Katie S. says:

    I’d like to think I’ve had a supernatural experience with doors randomly shutting, but I’m sure it was just a draft lol!

  62. Kimmie says:

    I’ve been using Origins Clean Energy cleansing oil. Love it.

  63. Jazmin says:

    I always wear my hear in a messy bun when it’s hot. Being in the bay area right know is like being on the sun. It is so hot!

  64. Courtnie says:

    I would love to win this Sephora GC because I love perfume!

  65. Julia says:

    I use Clarins gentle foaming cleanser. It’s wonderful.

  66. Lorraine says:

    3 cheers for machete wielding El Hub! My old man just rolls over and grunts when I poke him. His “weapon” of choice is an old baseball bat but he never wakes up to defend his home in the middle of the night.

  67. Rita says:

    Hello Karen! It’s really hot down here in SoCal!

  68. Kirsten H. says:

    My cat usually sleeps in bed with us, but it’s been so hot lately she’s opted for under the bed.

    So many products, so little time… ;)

  70. Brooke says:

    We have four kitties, and three sleep with my hubby and me. The fourth sleeps on the headboard. It’s very crowded!

  71. Angela says:

    I love the CeraVe moisturizers and cleansers. They’re the only type I’ve found that doesn’t make my stupid dermititis worse.

  72. Maureen says:

    One of our cats sleeps in the bed at night with us and is always trying to take my husbands side of the bed.

  73. mini says:

    I am using the body shop tea tree skin clearing face wash as if now..

  74. Aelyn says:

    I usually wear my hair up when the weather is so hot like it is these days.

  75. Marie says:

    My friend’s dog (THEE cutest, friendliest doggie ever) would love to sleep next to me on my bed every time I take a nap. Her half-golden retriever, half- corgi is a nice medium size dog that loves to lick faces by the way. ;P
    On hot days, i wear my hair up in a pony-tail/ bun. Thank goodness bay area whether is manageable. That being said, I LOVE my Garnier Radiance Renewer Cleansing Gelee to keep my face fresh throughout the day. :) Keep hydrated everyone!

  76. We had a ghost at the house I grew up in and he freaked me out. It was definitely the owner, who had died in the family room (as we later learned from some neighbor).

  77. Ellen says:

    Our cats used to sleep with us, but they don’t so much anymore because 1) it’s hot, and they don’t need to snuggle so much, and 2) we’re getting ready for baby and they won’t be allowed in the room for a while!

  78. stacy s says:

    It’s so hot here in Texas. My daughter made the all star softball team so we have had practice every night. I am not even playing and my clothes are drenched. When it’s this hot, I don’t even bother with make up, unless i go to work .

  79. Mei says:

    Hi Karen! I haven’t posted in a while! Been beeeezeee!!! hahahaha! still love reading your blog though! great for study breaks!
    supernatural experience? NO! I’m easily scared!! I can’t even watch movie trailers for horror movies!
    I have no pets right now :( but when I did have a dog, he would always sleep with me! I’d get too warm and move a little, and he’d move too (bc he needed to sleep RIGHTNEXT to me, it was adorable!).
    I’ve gone back to my PCA Skin 5% BPO face wash…I swear it’s the only face wash that can keep my acne in check. I stopped using it for two months and HOLY CRAP!
    How do I wear my hair when it’s hot? Well I recently chopped off like eight inches of it! I just decided I’m not about the long hair life…I hate taking care of it, and I live in the hottest state ever sooo….snip snip! It feels FAAAANTASTIC!
    fancy candles? love them! I don’t have my own place right now, so I can’t afford them, but when that pay check comes rolling in…oh boy!
    Have a great weekend Karen!

  80. BooBooNinja says:

    Using body lotion as hand cream isn’t the same.
    My hands are dryyyyy

  81. Irene says:

    Fancy expensive candles no thank you. I’d rather spend the money else where. Maybe for a extra special occasion…maybe.

  82. heather says:

    i’ve never had a supernatural experience, but i’ve been watching a lot of the show supernatural!

  83. Oh yay, I am happy that this one is open internationally! I’ve had lady luck poking fun at me today, so I could use a little cheering up :-)

    There was a house near where I used to live that’s locked up and the door is boarded shut since it used to be a place where they’d put the ill and my friends and I filmed something there once and saw something moving in the window inside for a few seconds before disappearing. Super creepy.

  88. alyssa fermin says:

    I don’t know if i said it before but i am obsessed with your new blog look. it is gorgeous.

  89. Annaham says:

    Of course my dog sleeps in bed with me!

  90. Marina Memon says:

    I have really been wanting to lose that extra 5lbs on myself, but it just can’t seem to go away! I have been running and doing an additional 30 minute exercise everyday, in addition to eating really healthy. Aside from that, I’ve really been into shopping at Ann Taylor LOFT recently. I scored $250 worth of clothes for only $100 a few days ago because they were having an awesome 50% off deal with additional small sales! :D

  91. Bobi says:

    I’m going to bed to get my beauty sleep.

  92. Ala says:

    Awesome blog, thanks for all cool info!

  93. i tie my hair up in a bun when it’s hot, when i wake up in the morning, i have nice tousely curly beach hair ! :)

  94. Tayler says:

    I’ve been using this St. Ives face wash for sensitive skin and i’m digging it pretty hardcore.

  95. Casey Hilgenbrink says:

    I’m still in college, so I don’t have any pets :( But when I’m at home, my dog snuggles at the foot of my bed and then moves to my sister’s room in the middle of the night!

  96. Samantha says:

    My cats don’t so much as sleep with me as use my body as part of their kitty obstacle course during the night. -_-

  97. Yamumay says:

    I love drawing….sometimes when I’m dreaming I draw then I realize I’m dreaming and I try to remember what I just did so I can do it in real life haha…

  98. bin du says:

    I’ve been thinking of adding a cleansing balm to my skincare routine. Trying to decide between the Clinique take the day off and Lush ultrabland, I prefer the non-fragrance of clinique but lush is a company I feel better about buying from….

  99. Jenn says:

    I’m a nurse, and my co-workers and I swear there was a ghost in our ICU. One night we walked into a patient’s room to give some meds to a patient who was on a vent and completely sedated. And suddenly all the cards and personal photos, one by one dropped from the walls. Other nurses have seen “people” go in that room, but when they go to see who it is, no one is there. Lets just say, I’m glad I no longer work nights! #freaky

  100. Rene Groyer (@ReneGroyer) says:

    So happy as Lush has opened in South Africa.What a fun store!

  101. Sarah W says:

    With my SO it’s a baseball bat…

  102. liz says:

    yes my pet sleeps with me

  103. Yolanda C. says:

    I don’t have pets but my sis has 2 doggies. I petsit quite often and I always let them sleep on the bed with me, even though they insist on sleeping in ways that take up all the space!

  104. Isabel says:

    I usually just stick to Yankee Candles or the candles from Bath & Body Works. They do the job & smell great for a reasonable price.

  105. Jennifer says:

    I love Yankee Candles. Their semiannual sale just happens to be going on now….

  106. Sara says:

    Ah! I would have been too scared to go back to sleep!

  107. Tricia says:

    I wear my hear in a bun

  108. Liat Kaplan says:

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  109. Supriya says:

    I don’t like cheap candles because they don’t actually fragrance a room enough so I don’t mind paying more for candles, but obviously I think there is a limit to what is expensive and what is cheap.

  110. Sarah says:

    Spend all at once or little things bit by bit? That’s the big question!

  111. Dominique says:

    For my face wash routine I used the Simple brand, it’s fir sensitve skin and it works great:-)

  112. Elizabeth says:

    Maybe Tabs turned on the TV. I could see him watching Bravo :-)

  113. Emma G says:

    I love having my dog in my bed with me, but he doesn’t like it too much, he keeps getting off. It’s fine, he attracts heat and sweat-sleeping is just not hot

  114. Vanessa Caraballo says:

    About to watch World War Z!!

  115. Charlotte says:

    My hair is in braids :)

  116. Meagan Pugliese says:

    My kitty Riley always sleeps with me :3

  117. Jana Ricketts says:

    If it’s hot I either straighten my hair and put up in ponytail or just put up in messy bun. :) I don’t know many way to do my hair!

  118. Kristen says:

    I lived in a haunted house, but didn’t have any experiences – my brother did though. Three of our four pets sleep with us, and I use Shu Uemera cleansing oil. My hair is short – same in summer and winter. I so don’t understand fancy, expensive candles at all. Or any candles really. Keep them around in case of a hurricane.

  119. Lizzy says:

    I’m with Claire, above–I have long hair and when it gets upwards of 80 I have to keep it up off of my neck, otherwise it becomes a tangled sweaty mess!

  120. Mariana says:

    I’ve been thinking about trying out a cleansing oil, but I’m terrified it will mess up my face…

  121. Sarah says:

    Just bought a new clarisonic fash brush and im excited to try it out…!

  122. Cica says:

    My dog sleeps with me, we like each other very much, so why not? :)I am a big animal lover, I can’t even pass by some cat or a dog without saying hi and giving them some compliments :)

  123. Susan T. says:

    My cat sleeps with me. She has her own blanket on her side of the bed. Don’t tell anyone ;)

  124. Christina says:

    I have a cute Corgi dog. Sometimes she will sleep with me, but only if my hubby isn’t in bed, too! She is a smart gal. :)

  125. MJ says:

    I use Philosophy’s Purity with my Clarisonic Mia. :)

  126. Mariee says:

    Right now I’m using Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Redness Soothing Cream Cleanser.

  127. gabis says:

    I have been using La Roche Posay Effaclar cleasing bar and my oily skin seems to be loving it!

  128. Melissa says:

    I have short curly hair, so I don’t comb it at all, cool or hot weather.

  129. irini says:

    My tv also turns on for no reason sometimes! It’s scary, isn’t it?

  130. Julia says:

    I love Chanel number 5. My mom has been wearing it since I was a little girl so it’s my favorite perfume.

  131. Kate & Zena says:

    Right now I’m using Simple moisturizer and I’m really surprised my skin hasn’t reacted! Normally drugstore moisturizers make my skin react, but this one is really great!

  132. Kylie says:

    I think fancy expensive candles are a waste. Because you end up burning it and throwing it away in the end. B&BW and Yankee candles are good enough.

  133. picco says:

    My pet can’t sleep in bed with me cuz he’s too tiny. I’m afraid i might squash him.

  134. Emi says:

    I use Aroma-Perfection Purifying Cleansing Gel from Nuxe. I wear my hair up in a bun/knot when it’s hot and humid. And yes, my cat sleeps on my bed at my foot. :)

  135. Y. says:

    up in a bun, the best way!

  136. Kristen says:

    No pets to sleep in the bed with me :( If I did, they would definitely be allowed!

  137. Nicole Thai says:

    I don’t have pets :<

  138. Lisa says:

    I got my wisdom teeth removed a few days ago, can’t wait to eat solid food again!

  139. Jennifer says:

    It’s 104 degrees at my house! No one believed me but I once had “an out of body experience.” Scared me but good! Hope your AC is working in Novato–wouldn’t want Tabs to overheat.

  140. Steph says:

    I just rewarded myself with Famous Amos cookies for remembering to wear my sunscreen every day this week.

  141. Chanelle (C.M.) says:

    I saw a ghost as a child. I was with another little girl, we were going into my basement where the playroom was. We both saw a white cloudlike thing slowly coming through the door and froze, quietly staring for a second before screaming and running up the stairs. I’m glad there was another witness so I know I’m not a nut!

  142. Aida says:

    I am so excited about Dior’s Fall collection! I’ve seen a bunch of promo pics and it’s almost painful to have to wait ’till August. Hoping Nordstrom will have some items earlier in their anniversary sale…

  143. Solangel says:

    I’ve been using both Morning Burst and PMS!

  144. Laneski says:

    I use apricot kernel oil to cleanse my face. It does not strip my face dry and leaves it feeling nice.

  145. Michel says:

    Today, I’ve been noticing my cat’s natural ‘eyeliner’ and wanting to replicate the look myself. #prettykitty

  146. amy says:

    My doggie Rocko sleeps in my bed. Sometimes I swear he dreams. He kicks his paws like he is running and sometimes he grunts as if he is barking in his dream. I love watching it. So interesting!

  147. Heather says:

    I use neutrogena oil free acne wash with grapfruit.

  148. Alix says:

    I’ve been using my boyfriend’s face wash, cetaphil. Haha I ran out of my regular face wash, and found that his actually cleaned my face really well!

  149. Leonora says:

    Hi Karen,
    I have a parrot and I am a little scared to fall asleep when he is with me in the bed as I might hurt him. He is such a cute little thing, but whenever i am lying down he loves to sit in between my hair and neck and cuddle there…It’s so cute!!

  150. Justine says:

    I’ve never had a supernatural experience.

  151. Kiara says:

    BATH & BODY WORKS SEMI ANNUAL SALE …….BEST THING EVER!!!!

  152. Andrea says:

    I can’t have pets due to my apartment’s rules, but if I did (and when I do! I am determined to find a place that allows dogs) I would let my pets sleep with me every single night.

  156. BeckBeck says:

    I’ve been sleeping with my new little kitten… but it’s not working out, because he likes to play all night and I need to sleep. He’s cute, though, so he gets away with it :)

  168. Charisma says:

    I usually put my hair up in the summer since it gets so hot here.

  169. Maria says:

    I remember seeing a man’s shadow on the wall when I was little and there was no one there. It was the scariest thing

  170. LM says:

    Yikes that’s an eerie experience! There’s a touch lamp at my grandma’s house that turns on randomly.

  171. Andrea says:

    My cat sleeps in bed with me but not my dog. Sorry, no dogs in my bed…well, at least not the 4 legged kind.

  172. P v says:

    I lived in a haunted house as a kid. My parents used to hear kids running around upstairs and up and down the stairs all the time. This was during the time when we were all at school. When they go upstairs to check, it was always empty.

  173. Erika Santos says:

    I’m currently using the Shiseido White Lucent face wash. LURVE IT!

  180. Janitzia says:

    I stay up whole nights reading your fantastic blog! Its so intriguing! You have a gift!

  181. Erika says:

    Most candles are artificially fragranced so my go to candle is the beeswax candle. It clarifies the air and has a pleasant light scent.

  182. Justine says:

    neutrogena makeup remover wipes are the best

  183. Chelsea says:

    No supernatural experiences here!

  184. Elyse says:

  185. Shev says:

    It’s hot and humid here in the Phils so I’ve learned how to bear the heat. I wear my hair down even when it’s hot because I’m hardcore like that.

  190. Lauren says:

    I’ve been using the Michael Todd True Organics honey and oat cleanser for a couple of months now and it is unbelievable! All the Michael Todd products are amazing I highly recommend them!
    Expensive candles are definitely worth it. They last longer and have amazing scent payoff. The soy based ones are the best!

  191. Andrea says:

    I used to let my dog sleep in the bed but then I got tired of getting dog hair over everything. He sleeps in HIS bed now.

  192. Hannah says:

    Lately I’ve been dabbing ribbons with essential oil and tying them to my fan. It works much better than room sprays and I love the scent of jasmine essential oil!

  193. Mardi says:

    My cats sometimes turn the TV on in the middle of the night. They always manage to do it when husband is away. Scares the cr*p out of me!

    I have two dogs (chihuahua/terrier mix) and they both sleep in my bed with me. The facial cleanser that I use is Michael Todd True Organics’ Charcoal Detox Cleanser.

  197. Laney says:

    I’m currently using Shiseido’s Pureness Deep Cleansing Foam. It’s an excellent summer cleanser for my problematic, combination-to-oily skin!

  198. Joanna says:

    Md forte III. My skin has never looked better

  199. Caroline says:

    would love to win this.

  212. auroragyps says:

    Zeal totally sleeps in the bed with me, but not so much when it’s hot
    and not very much since she hasn’t been feeling well. In the cold months though, we are total snuggle bunnies with her wanting under the covers a lot of the time.

  213. Lynn says:

    Sephora finally has Marc Jacobs Honey perfume! I’ve been wanting it since it came out earlier this year! i hope i win so i can buy it:)

    Thank you for the great giveaways! So kind of you.

  217. Julie says:

    No.5 is the first fragrance I bought for myself, so classic!

  218. Kristy says:

    My take on fancy expensive candles is this, well if they are scented expensive candles anyhow I don’t bother as I unfortunately was born with no sense of smell. A blessing and a curse all in one.

  219. Happiness says:

    I am using baby soaps, eveline cream wash, garnier cream wash, and soaps made out of goats milk .

  220. Sun says:

    My dog is getting brattier and scooching his way to the pillows every night. It was annoying enough that he wants half of the bed and that half has to be the middle of the bed instead of conveniently a side. But now he wants alll the pillows. Why can’t I stop spoiling smelly face!

  221. Marie says:

    I personally prefer the fragrance sticks to candles. No fire hazard :)

  222. Swagata says:

    My hair is always in a bun if I am not at work!!!!

  223. Claire says:

    I have been trying to use up a sample of Lush’s Coal Face cleanser at the moment, I’m a bit amazed & pleased at how long it’s lasting! I’ll probably try something new when it’s finished though.

  224. Ladyace says:

    I’ve been craving for filipino food lately. Doesn’t help that I’m pregnant. Haha.

  231. onegreatsmile says:

    In summer, I am totally hooked on the light version of Moroccan Oil – so i can kick the frizz and keep the curls!

  232. Liz says:

    Every morning when I wake up, three of our four cats are on the bed. Great when it’s cold at night, but lately not so much.

  233. Jane says:

    My dog is not allowed to sleep on the bed with me…he’s getting older which means he is getting more stinky! Haha. Thanks for doing this giveaway yet again.

  234. Sherry says:

    We have two cats and a dog who tetris themselves into bed with us :) My favorite face wash is the Tea Tree creamy face wash by The Body Shop.

  239. laura h says:

    Last year I did the ultimate hot weather hairdo and chopped it alllll off. It’s a pain sometimes, but when it’s hot out I’m reminded that it was the right choice :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  240. Taylor says:

    I just want to learn how to control my hair into a perfect top knot before the end of this calendar year. That’s all.

  241. Feedeedee says:

    Expensive scented candles are the best for rainy days and fall winter nights when all you wanna do is curl up and get lost in a book.

  242. BLUSHAHOLIC says:

    i am soooo bad i purchased sweet samba when i told myself i was going to skip this collection. i just have a thing for mineralize blushes

  243. Kendall Kash says:

    If I ever have a ghost in my house, I hope that it watches Bravo in the wee hours of the morn. That sounds like a ghost I could become friends with.

  244. Lynnette P. says:

    For the extreme summer humidity here in Florida, I cut my hair short-medium length where I can still rock a tiny poofy ponytail and wash my face with Biore’s Combination Face Cleanser :).

  245. I used to have a roommate in University when we shared a room who’s laptop would come to life at 2-3am and start playing whatever TV show or movie she had been watching. It used to scare the crap out of us.

  246. Clara says:

    It’s time to start using self tanner on my pale legs!

  247. Ebru M says:

    Happy sunday! My allergies have been making me nothing but miserable. I hope they go away soon!

  248. Marcela says:

    When the weather is hot, I like using my hair in a bun. I can’t stand having long hair in summer but I don’t have the guts to cut it either!

  249. Rebecca says:

    I’ve been using La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar foaming cream cleanser. Gets my skin really clean and removes makeup and oil without stripping and has some Salicylic Acid to treat clogged pores. Fairly expensive but lasts a long time since you only use a pea-size.

  250. Nobu says:

    I just bought a Z palette.. Thinking about depotting my naked palettes!

  251. Lisa H. says:

    I’ve been alternating between CeraVe’s foaming face wash and their hydrating one. I think I need to add some retinol to the mix because my checks are red and splotchy like they haven’t been in months!

  252. BB says:

    I need a new favorite face wash! I’ve been using Dessert Essence.

  253. Madelynn says:

    My Moli dog slept with me every night, but lately she’s been jumping off and snoozing on the floor. No idea why!

  254. elle says:

    I have a pixie cut, so…I wear my hair more or less the same way every day.

  255. Julia says:

    When it is hot my hair is always in a high bun!

  256. My pets can sleep with me on the bed if they want.

  257. Tabathia B says:

    Right now I am using Neutrogena facial wash, no pets sleep with me, I wear my hair in a bob most of the time unless the heat is unbearable.

  258. Elise says:

    I just moved to a different climate, so I m trying to find a facewash that works here.

  259. Libby says:

    I’ve been using Caudalie’s Gentle Cleansing Milk and I love it! It’s really light and perfect for using in the morning when I don’t have much to wash off :)

  260. Liz says:

    Our two cats most often do, but the dog has her own bed. :-)

  261. amanda . says:

    such a lovely giveaway, have been eyeing a perfume recently and have been dying to get my hands on it :D

  262. Wayne says:

    Happy Canada Day long weekend!

  263. Melissa says:

    When I was a kid I thought I had a supernatural experience when I was at my birthday party and a bright light completely obscured my vision and things felt like they had slowed down. It creeped me out but then I realised years later it was just a camera going off when I saw a photo of me from then with a dazed look on my face! I’m not really into the supernatural but my dad tells some stories about things that happened to him when he was younger and playing in the woods by Shotts prison…

  264. Diana says:

    So Cal summers suck! It has been over 100 degrees for the past three days with humidity (that part is rare, but the heat is not. I think my ovaries may be fried now!

  265. Rach says:

    It’s hot today! !!

  266. yamini says:

    Hi…..right now i am using the body shop tea tree skin clearing face wash. I have an aquarium,my pets r fishes.. :) they cant sleep with me by my side on the bed

  267. doroffee says:

    I can be suckered into buying a fancier candle (but nothing really crazy exquisite) if they have a gimmick I like (last time I bought a gummi bear scented Jewelry Candle… gummi bear fragrance and hidden jewelry in a candle? Count me in!).

  268. Amy says:

    I love it when our two kitties sleep in the bed with us!

  271. Darlene says:

    I wear my hair in a bun when it’s hot…and it’s really hot right now :(

  277. Zoe says:

    I wear my hair in a ponytail, or a bun.

  278. christine says:

    I’ve been alternating between two Alba Botanica acne face washes.

  279. Kristen says:

    I’ve been using Cetaphil as my face wash, but I’m kind of over it! It’s actually for oily skin – and I have super dry skin! Problem is, it’s $8 and I have a lot left. I’m trying to use it so that when I buy all my new toiletries for going back to school, I can grab some of the new Boots Botanics brand from Target (I confess – because the packaging is SUPER CUTE!!)

  280. Lisa says:

    My cat has taken to sleeping on my head, so I don’t let him in the bedroom anymore. I make sure to give him extra cuddles in the morning though!

  281. Jen says:

    I stick to Bath and Body Works candles; not too fancy or expensive!

  282. ReneeP says:

    My son, fiance and I just moved from a 950 sqft condo to a house. We have always had dogs and are now finally adding 2 cats!

  283. Nikita says:

    I’ve been using Clinique Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser for a very long time – it works well for my face :)

  284. Ruchita says:

    Nina kitty sleeps with us every night. :-)

  285. Vanessa F says:

    One of my cats would love to sleep in bed with us, but he’s very noisy and scratches our furniture at night. He sleeps outside our bedroom and we let him inside in the morning for cuddles.

  286. TrippyPixie says:

    Yes, my family has had supernatural experiences. My dad and older sister have both seen a ghost, and we had the ghost of my grandma appear in a photo.

  287. trinipino1 says:

  308. Martha says:

  309. mini says:

    Its too hot for makeup here :(

  310. Jessi says:

    I’m a new convert to the amazing Clarisonic Mia2. I’m constantly searching for a facewash I love. Right now I’m using one of the Neutrogena naturals, it’s ok but not amazing.

  311. purnergy says:

    When it gets hot out I am sure to drink plenty of water and wear a pair of big sunglasses.

  312. Jennifer Dysart says:

    Love that Chanel!! Would love to win this, hoping to score some of the Ariel collection when it comes out soon

  313. kayla says:

    Since the summer I’ve been braiding my hair or putting it in a pony because it has been too hot to wear my hair down!

  314. Lynda says:

    love the chanel picture!! did you ever figure out what happened? my desktop used to turn itself on in the middle of the night (never woke me up but i would wake up finding it already turned on) so that was kinda weird too.

  315. Alyssa says:

    My pets are not in the bed sleepers. My 50 pound gsp takes up most of my king size bed if I were to let him and most of that side is usually mine and not the hubby’s for some reason. Lol and my tabby is not much of a sleep on or near people. She was a rescue and isn’t the cuddly one in the family. I cut my hair really short last fall and it’s still pretty short now so I don’t really have to put it up on hot days. I love that you do this giveaway every week.

  316. Avanty says:

    I love neutrogena’s pink grapefruit wash!

  317. Avanty says:

    I love neutrogena’s pink grapefruit face wash!

  318. Val says:

    Karen, could you recommend any summer perfume?

  319. Laura says:

    My fav facewash to use is Ocean Salt from Lush. I love it because it is a deep cleanser and removes all the dirt from your face leaving it feeling squeaky clean!!

  320. Elsa says:

    I dont own anything but drugstore makeup…

  321. Kate Williamson says:

    I hate when I wake up in the middle of the night, look at the clock,and it’s 3:30am. Eeek! So Emily Rose!

  322. Tanya says:

    I don’t let my cat sleep with us, my hubby wouldn’t allow it :)

  323. Nlm8 says:

    Always a good idea to carry a facial spritzer on hot summer days!

  324. Hollie H says:

    Expensive candles….phish. I LOVE LOVE Bath and Body Works candles. They are the only ones who’s scents don’t give me a headache.

  325. Erin says:

    I’m pretty sure ghosts love television. I’ve had a handful of strange tv experiences including channels switching on me and volume jumping uncontrollably. I’m not that big of a believer in that kind of thing, but it seems to me that if there IS something out there, wouldn’t a tv be a pretty great tool for them?

  326. Maggie says:

    I don’t like scented candles at any price! They give me headaches :(

    My cats always slept in my bed – one of them on my head!

  332. Jamie C. says:

    When it’s hot out I normally pick up my hair in a bun

  333. Marilyn G. says:

    In the hot South Carolina summer weather, hair up is a must on most days. Unless I feel like letting this latina hair free and I rock it out!!!

  334. Katrina says:

    Scarves are a must for hot summer days. A chic way to keep hair off my neck!

  335. LaCheshireCat says:

    I would love to win this!!!!

  336. Cynthia F. says:

    I love candles of all types, fancy or not!

  337. Melody says:

    I’ve been using Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser. I’m not particularly in love with it, but it works for the time being. I usually put it in a side braid and leave it so I don’t have to deal with it :)

  338. Chasie Poo says:

    Hey Karen! :) I love DHC Deep Cleansing Oil and then I follow up with Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar. It never dries my face out and I have combo acne-prone skin. :)

  339. Sadhana says:

    Turns out, my salicylic acid-face wash was hurting more than helping my acne. I switched to a gentler, no-fuss Neutrogena one and my skin is MUCH better!
    Also, I’m loving my tomato-red pedicure… Thanks for the giveaway!!

  340. Ruth says:

    I just got this hair helper called hot buns from bed,bath & beyond and it takes seconds to have a sleek looking bun; loving it! without it my buns are a very sad state of affair.

    My cat sleeps in bed with us every night – always on top of the covers by my feet. I’m out of town this weekend and miss him hopping into bed at night.
