Sunday Tomfoolery and Lovely Link Roundup

Published in: Just For Fun

All Chanel-ed out, yo!

Hey, homies. How’s it going today? I’ve been up to a whole lot of nothing so far, having pretty much wasted away the day surfing the web, but I did find a few interesting links.


I took the top picture after yesterday’s Chanel Master Class at Macy’s. I learned a few new tips (which I’ll share soon) and discovered the gorgeousness that is the Sparkling Satins eyeshadow quad ($56).


I asked one of the instructors which quad she likes best, and she handed me Sparkling Satins. Part of Chanel’s permanent collection, it’s a powder quad with four shimmery shades of silvery blue, gold, pink and black. Have you ever played with it before?

I ended up falling for it *hard*. 🙂

  2. Your sunday sounds just like mine! I watched TV and surfed the net. I am trying out a new straightening iron and so far so good!

    I look forward to hearing about what you learned at the class!

    By falling for it hard do you mean you bought five of them 😛 It looks so beautiful though! 4 great colors. I always talk myself out of quads because there is always one color that I don’t like but this one is perfection!

  4. I REALLY like that quad! Ok confession time…I have never owned anything Chanel other than nail polish and lip gloss! Maybe it’s time I check ’em out…

    Great links! 😀 I like how skulls are ever more in fashion these days…

    Also, do you happen to know if there’s a less sparkly alternative to the Givenchy Sun Rose Pop Gloss? I haven’t seen anything with the same amazing color or texture, but it is a bit blingy – not to mention the price tag!

      Hi Tea,

      Hmm, have you ever tried the Sally Hansen Diamond Lip Treatments? Like the Givenchy Pop Glosses, they aren’t sticky and feel thin on the lips. There’s a whole mess of colors, and each costs just $6. If you’re looking for something peachy you might want to try Flawless.

    LOVE the 11 steps to unclutter your life. This is perfect timing for me. I can’t take it anymore, my place is a mess! I need to go to Container Store this afternoon.

  7. Glosslizard says:

    Hmmmm, I’ve seen Sparkling Satins before but haven’t been smitten, I’m betting I could fall for it if I had guidance on how to use it! Over on my end, I got the Chanel Evergreen palette, Murano quad and Intuition lipstick and I am in luuuuuuuurve! <3 😀

    • Karen says:

      Hi Glosslizard,

      WOOT! You are totally going green with Chanel this fall. Hot!

      I would be happy to guide you along the Sparkling Satins path, grasshopper.

    Hey Karen!
    You look so pretty in that picture!!! Love your make-up!! 🙂 I really want to go to one of the Chanel master classes too but the counter at the local Macy’s said they always have it on weekdays.. too bad, or good for my wallet actually!!! 😉 but seriously I have been wanting to get some lipsticks and glossimers but can never decide on what to get. Plus when I think of Chanel I think luxury and I want the whole shopping experience to be luxurious, you know with a make-up artist who knows what she/he’s talking about… that’s quite hard to find sometimes! Enjoy your new goodies!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Merylynmagic,

      Oh, maybe the next time they have an event during the week you can take a vacay day and turn it into a mini pampering event with a friend! You could go to class and then maybe have lunch and go window shopping afterwards. 🙂 Everyone deserves a fun treat now and then, right?

      How was your weekend? Didn’t this one fly right by?

    The more you talk about Chanel, the more I want it. All I have owned is 3 nail polishes from this line. Gimme gimme gimme more!
    .-= Marisol’s last blog post… Kindle me this… =-.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Marisol,

      It’s a line one can easily get addicted to. Maybe next time there’s a Chanel event schedule a makeover? That’s what did it for me, eek!

  11. Lina says:
