Sundays with Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Mar. 15

Published in: Just For Fun

Tabby Loves Stila beauty can

You know how Tabs does fashion and beauty modeling on the side, right? Well, he really wanted the Barbie Loves Stila job, but they never called him back after the go-see. Something about his attitude…


So he commissioned a local artist to put his face on one of the new beauty cans.

He plans to take it down to the Stila offices in LA to show them what they’re missing. πŸ™‚

In other news, I’m sad the weekend’s coming to a close. It feels like it just started. The only thing I did was go to brunch today with El Hub in Sausalito, but it was kind of drizzling. While we were out, Tabs surfed the web and found these sites of the day.

Do moisturizers make you age??

Last week BellaSugar posted her interview (Part 1 and Part 2) with dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi of ZO Skin Health. In the interview, the doc has plenty to say about his specialty, anti-aging skin care, like — get this — moisturizers actually accelerate the aging process. Tabs thinks the doctor snorts too much catnip, but you be the judge.

Julieg713’s makeup video channel on YouTube totally rawks!

Okay, you know how Tabs and I have been doing videos lately, right? They’re fine, but what we WANT to start doing are videos more like these. Julieg713 has more than 100 videos on YouTube, covering everything from the Barbie Loves Stila Talking Palette to the new MAC Grand Duos, and they’re great. Check out her channel here.

Everything you ever wanted to know about MAC Grand Duos but were too afraid to ask, LOL! is one of my favorite beauty blogs out there. I’ve never met her before, but she seems like a sweetheart. She does a lot of videos, too, like this *thorough* 18-minute look at the new MAC Grand Duo Blush collection.

What shocks me is just how … fresh it is

Tabs thinks TheFreshFiends blog is gonna be huge — HUGE! And if there’s one thing Tabs knows a lot about, it’s being friggin’ huge.

We Heart This

Err, I mean that’s what the site is called. Tabs and I — we heart We Heart This. I like the Beauty & Fashion area, but Tabs likes the Pets & Kids section, except that he wants it renamed to just Pets.

You know Tabs. He can’t share the spotlight with anyone. πŸ™‚

    I’ve been an avid follower of julieg713’s channel for MONTHS. She really takes the time to explain everything. I learn best with a combo of photo, video and audio and she does all three so everything is communicated clearly for me. I love her nails too. She’s very talented.

    That dermatologist Bella interviewed was such a double talker. Did you notice the whole time he was bashing moisturizers he was talking about his own line of moisturizers? He just sabotaged his entire image and all of his credibility in essentially under ten questions. I rolled my eyes after I finished reading the first article!

    I took Zena for a walk earlier today so she’s snoozing happily. Tomorrow, it’s supposed to get close to 60! Woo hoo! Warm weather!!!

  2. Janet says:

    I love juliag713’s videos too! They’re great!

    And your blog is amazing as well πŸ™‚

  3. Audrey says:

    Youtube videos are what drew me into makeup in the first place! I never wore much until last summer and now I’m totally addicted. I like Julie’s videos as well but my current favorite is pixiwoo. They are two sisters and they are absolutely amazing plus I love their accents πŸ™‚

    Audrey´s last blog post..Are you watching American Idol?

  4. ellalthea says:

    I agree with you, Kate. His moisturizers sounded exactly like every other anti-aging moisturizer on the market. I really got the feeling he was trying to sell a product.

  5. Karen says:

    Hi Kate,

    I the post brought up some interesting points. I’m not ready to give up my moisturizer, though!

    I’m jealous that you guys are getting some sunshine. It’s dripping wet and pouring here right now. Tabs just got home an hour ago. He spent the night partying. πŸ™‚

    Is Zena very well behaved on her leash?

  6. Karen says:

    Hi Janet,

    Thank you. πŸ™‚

    I can’t wait to watch more of her vids. She does very pretty looks! Do you have a favorite video from her that you think I should check out?

  7. Karen says:

    Hi Audrey,

    Oh cool — I’ll check them out! What do you like about their vids?

  8. Stef says:

    Karen, thank so much for the we heart this shout out! How funny that we gave you one of the very same day.

    I’ll see what I can do about Tabs request…


  9. Stephie says:

    HAHA. Yes! I love watching Pursebuzz’s and JulieG317’s videos as well. They are very fun upbeat and knowledgable people. Also really like, Lollipop26 b/c her accent is quite wonderful to listen to πŸ˜›

    Zena tends to behave very well on her leash. I’ve stopped using a pinch collar on her so she just goes on her fabric one. She does tend to be a bit exuberant when we first start out (she is a terrier!) so I tend to give her a bit of leash to walk ahead of me but on the way back she heels right next to me until we get to my home street than she tends to pull as she wants to go home to lie down.

    The only time I’ve seen her misbehave on her leash is when she sees other dogs. She tends to pull and not listen as she wants to sniff them out, especially puppies. One time there was a group of puppies getting their check-up at the vet and Zena managed to get out of her collar to greet them! My mom was left with nothing but a collar and leash! She doesn’t growl or snap unless provoked as she is pretty calm and other dogs tend to follow her as she’s an Alpha.

    It’s official, I heart Tabs the Makeup and Beauty Blog mascot! Sure, he has a bit of an attitude and hogs the spotlight, but look at that face! Hee, he is a cutie.

    Thanks for your kind words karen! I’m off to check out the interview with the derm that claims moisturizer accelerates aging?! What – really?!
