The Weekly Roundup: Posts You Might Have Missed

Published in: Just For Fun

Makeup and Beauty Blog Weekly Roundup

It’s Easter, everyone! And I hope wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, you’re having a wonderful day. πŸ™‚


First thing this morning, while I was still asleep, El Hub sneaked out of the house on a quest to find hot doughnuts and coffee. Not an easy task at 7 on Easter morning (even Starbucks is closed), but he somehow succeeded! He must have found the only open doughnut shop in the county, LOL!

Yup, fresh doughnuts and coffee are a pretty good way to start a lazy day.

In other news, no makeup monster sightings today, but I’m sure they’ll be back soon… I bet they’re just busy with their families today.

If you feel like saying hi, I’d love to hear from you. Please drop me a line in the comments.

    Happy Easter to you Karen in California and to the rest of the readers wherever you are. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Greetings from Germany! Yogirl

    • Karen says:

      Danke, Yogirl. πŸ™‚ Happy Easter to you too! Where in Germany are you writing from?

      • Yogirl says:

        I live in Frankfurt/ Main, I travel a lot for work around Germany but for the weekend I’m with my family and my 10months old niece near Cologne. Have you ever been to Germany?

        • Karen says:

          I’ve wanted to visit for many years, but other than a brief layover I’ve never been. I would love to go sightseeing in Cologne. I’ve heard that it has a great art scene and some amazing architecture.

  2. Advah says:

    Happy Easter weekend, Karen (and El Hub)! Hope you guys are enjoying a sunny weekend. πŸ™‚ With plenty of chocolates!

    • Karen says:

      Happy Easter to you guys, Advah. It’s a little hazy out here, but it’s not cold at all, which is nice. As for chocolates, there’s a 1-pound box of See’s in the kitchen with my name on it, and I plan to do some damage to that thing this afternoon. πŸ™‚

    Karen have a wonderful and happy Easter from NYC! Thanks for the awesome blog I truly enjoy reading your posts every day. Have a good weekend. πŸ™‚

    Happy Easter! πŸ™‚

  5. Happy Easter Karen!

    Thanks so much for sharing not one but two posts from my little blog. That is so postively encouraging!

    Keep writing and keep inspiring girls out there darling!

    • Karen says:

      Hi, Linh. Happy Easter! I really enjoyed both of those posts and thought they were very authentic and helpful. I still experience the same doubts about blogging that you talked about. I think most of them are pretty universal.

  6. Chelsea says:

    My bunny Quincy is flopping around doing nothing on his holiday! He didn’t bring candy, toys, or eggs – not a very good Easter bunny…

    Then again, it is his holiday, he deserves to be spoiled!

    • Karen says:

      Hi, Chelsea. Happy Easter. Tell Quincy he’s got some nerve not doing his part today. Bunnies only have to work one day a year, sheesh! You’d think they’d pull together today of all days. πŸ™‚

  7. Crystal says:

    Your hair always looks amazing but its been really pretty and so healthy looking in your posts! Happy Easter…I’m on my third chocolate treat ha!

      Hi, Crystal. Aw, thank you. πŸ™‚ I don’t know what it could be. Maybe it’s the sunny weather rubbing off on me. I’m right there with ya on the chocolate. I’m saving mine up for this afternoon, and then it’s game on!

      Hope you’re having a very happy Easter.

    I have two things to say (besides Happy Easter to you, el Hub and Tabs). The first is that you have been looking exceptionally pretty in all your photos here over the past few months; you always look great but I think that haircut is so flattering and your makeup has just been extra gorgeous too. The 2nd thing is this: am I the only person who is sick of the “Pantone Color Of The Year” hoopla and that the orange lippie they’re freaking out over is fugly??? There, I got it off much chest. That is all.

    Happy Easter, Karen! πŸ™‚

    After a killer workout (Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism… ow it hurts!), a relaxing bath, and a short nap, I am ready to tackle Easter dinner at the parents’. Hope you had a great weekend.

    (And thank you thank you for the link!).
