Okay, so I had planned to blog some product reviews today, right? Yup, it was gonna be totes sweet! I had a Clinique lipgloss set to tell you about and some cool stuff from the new issue of Vogue that I wanted to discuss, but what happened instead?


I’ll tell you what happened…

I took a 3-hour nap! — that’s what happened.

Guess I needed the rest, but I’ll be back soon, rearing to go, full of vim and vigor and whatnot. If you sign up for my updates by email, you can rest assured that days like today will be few and far between. I’m usually good for 2-3 posts/day, honest.

Tabs is here sleeping on my lap. Maybe I’ll blame him for my laziness today. The sound of his purring lulled me to sleep. Yeah, that’s the ticket. 🙂

I hope you had a more productive day than I did.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. If you like vampire movies, you gotta see Let The Right One In. El Hub and I caught it last night, and BOY-HOWDY was it good! Picture this: It’s winter in Sweden; night comes early since it’s so far north, and snow covers everything in sight. A 12-year-old Swedish vampire girl drops from trees onto her prey, the lonely inhabitants of a quiet Stockholm suburb.

Fo reals! Expect child vampire mayhem and so much more. It’s well worth the price of admission (note: it’s subtitled).

    Well I love vampire movies so I might check that one out, thanks! Can’t wait for Twilight also! I just got Eclipse today so I shall start it tonight. 🙂

    Hi Vampyvarnish,

    I love vampire movies, too, and this one was an interesting twist on vampire lore.

    Be prepared for some disturbing scenes though… not necessarily gory, but very creepy.

    I hope you enjoy your book! Are you planning on finishing the series before the movie comes out?

  5. Allie says:

    hi karen,

    my day was great. i went to one of my besties baby shower. and i wore the speak louder cremesheen with a green/gold eye so thanks for the recommendation! the weather was perfect down here in so. cal.

  6. Karen says:

    Hi Allie,

    How fun! It was super overcast and cloudy up here today, so I’ll just have to vicariously live through you for my sunshine! I have a hard time dealing with the weather when it’s so gray… gives me the blahs.

    When is your bff due? You’re going to be an auntie. How exciting!

  7. Marisol says:

    Naps are the best. Enjoy it while you can before the holidays start. You will be wishing you had time for a nap.

  8. Allie says:

    hey karen,

    she’s due in early december. i know. its really exciting.

    you should do a feature on “what’s in your bag?” those are always interesting!

  9. Glosslizard says:

    I can so relate! Honestly, nothing relieves me of consciousness faster than the purring of a cat! It’s sooooo soothing!

    The last few days have been pretty intensive, birthday parties, ear infections and all sorts of business and unpleasantness! Then this morning I got to sleep in, and now everything is magically better! Yay sleep! 🙂

    Movie sounds cool, I’m gonna wait for Twilight, though!

  10. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    I know! I want to get the house ready for Christmas this year because last year I totally missed it because of work (I didn’t even get a tree, aww). I am hoping to have it all done and ready by early December. At least that’s my goal.

    Hope you are enjoying this beautiful Sunday!

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Allie,

    Wow, that’s just around the corner! Is she having a boy or a girl?

    LOL, I did one of those a few months ago… only then did I realize what a hobo bad lady I was.

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    Yay, TEAM SLEEP! I think that’s why I’m so TEAM JACOB… at least the werewolves can catch a nap!

    Oh no, are The Imps faring okay?

  13. vampyvarnish says:

    Hi Karen – That was the goal but I’m not sure if I can get there or not! At least I finished the first one before the movies.

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Vampyvarnish,

    I think the first one is the only one you’ll need for the movie. Tonight there’s supposed to be a sneak peek during Heroes. Eek! Can’t wait!
