Win a $50 Sephora eGift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog

Hello, my fair lady! I hope you slept well last night. For once I got a great night’s sleep (it’s a Christmas miracle), so I’m feeling pretty good. Actually, I was sleeping so well, in fact, that I probably wouldn’t have gotten out of bed if it weren’t for one husky tabby cat.


Don’t let those sweet eyes fool you. Every morning, Tabs is hell bent on two things: 1) lurvies and 2) gravy. If I don’t provide both within a narrow time frame, he punishes me by using my bladder, which is usually filled to the brim first thing in the morning (sorry, TMI, I know!), as a springboard. Repeatedly.

Speaking of launching thingsรขโ‚ฌยฆlet’s kick off the weekend with a giveaway. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s incredibly cliche.. but I’m 101% addicted to Chanel’s “Boy” & NARS “Angelika.” It kinda stinks that neither are very long lasting.. but I’ve been stuck on them ever since รขโ„ขยฅ

  3. janey says:

    Your question about lip products in my purse sent me scrambling to check my cosmetic bag: seven MAC LipGlasses, one carmex, one chap stick (cherry!) and an old school Bobbi Brown lip tint. I think it’s time for some spring cleaning.

I’m now buying every popular blush out there. Yesterday I got Giggly from Quite Cute which is what I’m wearing right now and I’m loving it!

    My dachshund has the funniest habit of taking her blanket and spinning it into a complete circle before she curls up in it.

  43. Chelsie says:

    My cat used to wake me up at the crack of dawn by sitting next to my head and staring at me. It’s very unnerving to wake up to an 18 pound tom an inch from your eyes. And if that didn’t work, he’d start licking my eyelids. That got me up every time.

  76. Katherine says:

    My cat has a lot of quirks, but luckily he is quiet in the morning until he knows that I am awake. Then he has no mercy. But if I keep my eyes shut and don’t move around too much, he won’t realize I’m awake so I can lay in bed for a little longer.

  77. lo says:

    I have an automatic feeder for my cat – it definitely helps keep the peace in the morning!

  84. Saffron says:

    My cats are nothing if not a collection of weird habits. My recent favorite is that during my stomach flu a couple weeks ago, Merv the sphynx took to riding on my shoulders and investigating while I was in the middle of Being Ill. I would have to flail around to grab at a paw and launch him off my back every time until he got the hint, but when he finally did give up on supervision he hopped over and PEED IN THE BATHTUB. And apparently he liked it because he HASN’T STOPPED SINCE! >< I'm going to try to turn lemons into lemonade and toilet train him but still: sheesh!
    Thanks for the contest, hope everyone has a great weekend!

  99. D.Allen says:

    Something I’m loving right now, is Sephora’s Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover. I was very surprised with this product. It’s a non-greasy formula; which is important to me because I wear contacts and hate that greasy feel on my eyes. It’s like having Vaseline on your eyes (don’t ask LOL). The small bottle is $5, with the larger coming in at $8. Not a bad deal.:-)

  100. Cass says:

    My cats have always been afraid to walk on my stomach/chest. Its very strange. They walk on my husbands just fine. It kinda hurts my feelings!

    Unfortunately, my first pet passed away last January after 13 years with me. He was my first pet. I got him as soon as I moved out of my parents house. It was really hard for me to get over. He was to me what Tabs is to you. Just that very special animal who will always hold that place in your heart. His strange/cool thing is that he used to play fetch. It was so cool! Well, except for the fact that I had to hide any hair ties or he would claim them as his own! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My 2nd cat is a prissy, beautiful Ragdoll. She has always been sick so she doesn’t really have any quirkiness to her. (She was sick as a kitten and got chronic renal failure at age 4, she is now 10).

    My 3rd cat was a foster that I couldn’t give up. She has a ton of quirks! First off, she will eat anything! (Well except tofu and tilapia.) She loves cake and anything carby. She is also a thief. She was a feral kitten so its probably a survival instinct for her. She will grab things and just run off with them. The most bizarre things too! Those little green stirrer/stopper things that go into the top of a Starbucks cup, plastic wear, really anything she can carry off and even sometimes stuff that is too heavy for her. Its adorable and annoying all at the same time!

    Our current 4th cat is a foster who came to the animal shelter that I work at with a wound of unknown origin, so he had to have a 6 month rabies quarantine. He has a lot of quirks! When we first brought him home, he was scared of carpet! He would not walk on it. He was also a feral kitten and really skilled at survival. I am scared of the day when we find where these two cats hide things that they steal.

    Could you imagine a life without animals? Don’t you feel sorry for people that just don’t understand?

  101. Meha Varma says:

    oh em gee somebody please let the sun out :-\ but the only thing thats making me happy right now is my Korres guava body butter!!!!!!!!!

  102. winternbloom says:

    Happy caturday to tubby Tabs! (And I mean tubby in best possible way, no need to lay off the gravy).

    I am currently loving Korres Mango butter lipsticks, they truly are like buttah.

  104. Carissa says:

    right now i have a couple of korres lip butters (jasmin and guava), mac lipstick in pretty please, and some vaseline lip therapy (my favorite chapstick)! have a great weekend!

  105. Lynn says:

    The kittehs let me sleep in (til 9 AM!), which made me suspicious. The scene in the living room told me everything I needed to know:

    Catnip toys behind the couch, a delicate pile of cat-throw-up in the center of a pile of cat hair, and every throw pillow in the room “re-arranged”.

    Yup, it was a Friday night kitteh partay. Guess we’ll all be napping this afternoon!

  106. Hannah A. says:

    My cat likes to wake me up in the morning by nuzzling my face until I get up and pet her.

  108. Chris25 says:

    I’m really into lipgloss these days and I’m usually just a lipstick girl. I think the new Revlon lipglosses (ColorBurst and Super Lustrous) changed my mind. Although, I still don’t wear lipgloss unless my hair is up or there’s NO wind.

  129. Sarah says:

    Cara, my guard cat, just found a spider and kept it corralled until I noticed. Good cat! She also alerts us by going crazy if raccoons or stray cats are on our deck. Besa on the other hand just chasing flying bugs. But will hunt and destroy them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Lady Zeal is a quirk queen and it’s seems she acquires more as she gets older. When we got her at 6 months, she could already play fetch (something I couldn’t teach three dogs to do) with hr favorite toys, tinsel pom poms and the bigger the better. She also talks to her pom poms, when she’s playing with them, carrying them (I tell her not to talk with her mouth full), or when she’s stalking them. After years of thinking she wouldn’t or couldn’t catch mice, she has a few times now, and she talks to the mice too. The story of her catching mice is hysterical.

    Her other really funny quirk is that she doesn’t like when I go out. I go out very infrequently, but she seems to know when I’m going to and starts acting all cute to keep me home. She lays in the bathroom with her belly showing, something she doesn’t do anywhere else. She also jumps into the tub and prances around, maybe so I won’t turn on the water. As I’m getting ready, she acts more cranky & aloof, but when I get home she’s thrilled. Actually, I don’t think she likes it when ever go in the bathroom, since she’s always coming in to watch me, like I’m going to jump in the shower & then take off. It’s weird having your cat always watch you pee. I tell her I’m a big girl and can pee all by myself, but so far she doesn’t care.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

    I bought Chanel Dragon nail polish today! It is totally gonna look awesome!

    I am glad you got some sleep, Karen. I am jealous! I am puppy-sitting an English bulldog named Rosie for my husband’s friend (they went to an archery shoot about 5 hours away, and won’t be back until tomorrow). She would NOT go to sleep- she was so hyper. While she didn’t snore as bad as I thought she would, she did do number 1 on our comforter! Our dog has since grown out of that stuff, so I am not used to that anymore. Now, they are playing the chase me game- the skinny dachshund mix running around at a billion miles per hour, with the chubby Rosie trying to catch him. It’s like watching “Norbert” all over again.

    Lucky for her, she’s cute! Plus, my Zeus has a lot of patience.

    I have a great cat named Barley whose back legs are partially paralyzed and he has a tough time trying to get into a regular size litter pan without turning the whole thing over. I’ve searched for one he can get in and out of easily and FINALLY found the perfect litter pan! It’s actually a pan for PUPPIES (I suppose it’s for the little guys whose humans, for whatever reason, may find it necessary to train them that way). I found it at Petco, thanks to a very helpful manager who understood what my buddy needed. He can get in/out very easily & it sure makes for a happier kitty. If anyone has a handicapped cat who may have the same problem, please give this pan a try.

    I was actually going to comment on my dog’s odd quirks from the moment you mentioned Tabs’ affinity for jumping on your bladder. x)
    My perfectly house-trained dog of 8+ years (?) has found a new hobby: peeing on various pieces of furniture for no reason. He generally barks when he needs to do his business, but never when its one of his surprise attacks as we’ve taken to calling it. To make things worse, this generally happens in the morning when I’m putting on my makeup. I then have to leave my face half-done and admittedly scary (I don’t usually get a good night’s sleep either) to try to staunch what seems like a gallon of… well, you know. Now I really think this is TMI haha. ๐Ÿ˜€

    All eight of our animals have weird quirks. I think the one that surprises people the most is that all five cats like water. I have to remove one every morning from the shower. Whenever I take a bath, all five line up on the sill and take turns trying to come in with me. They’ll come and sit on my lap while I’m bathing and reading. But I could go on and on about their, and the three dogs, individual quirks.

    Well, I must tell you about my young golden retriever, Ella. We swear she is part cat. If she smells a toy under a chair, sofa or coffee table, she will reach a paw under the furniture and bat the toy out like a cat swats at a toy! Unfortunately, her lazy golden retriever brother, Riley, is usually waiting with baited breath for the out-of-reach toy and snags it before his sister has a chance to enjoy her treasure. Luckily, Ella is good natured and doesn’t mind sharing! Enjoy your weekend and happy sleepy time. ๐Ÿ™‚

    ^ The “I like cheese!” comment made me giggle. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Today was beautiful out. I spent some time outside before taking a nap that ended up being a teeeeeny tiiiiny bit longer than I planned. But enough about me, here is my SUMMER WISHLIST!! OOOOOH, AAAAAH!

    – Bare Escentuals Siren of the Sea kit (gorgeous! gorgeous! It’s mermaid/sea-inspired. It has a sandy gold color as well as a slate-blue-green-surprisingly-neutral-for-a-color-like-that shade, as well as a sheer, hydrating coral blush, a double-ended makeup brush, innovative “hydrating” mineral veil with abursting water bead technology of some sort, and a summery straw clutch to store it in! Gotta get my hands on it soon as it’s limited edition, and who doesn’t want to frolic the beach pretending they’re a mermaid?!)
    – Bare Escentuals glimmer eyeshadows in Nude Beach (can’t even describe the shimmering beauty that is this versatile neutral shade) and Queen Phyllis (pale, champagne-y gold – something I’ve been looking for since last summer!)
    – LORAC eyeshadow in Green Room. It’s a deep teal and I envision it looking very sultry on a summer night, paired with a flow-y maxi dress. I had been looking for a teal, but not just any teal! Something darker and more green than blue (but not emerald-like), and this has hit the jackpot.
    – NARS blush in Gilda (coral)
    – MAC eyeshadows in Bronze, Mulch, and moooore!
    – I. Must. Stop.

    Have a lovely week. ๐Ÿ™‚

  384. Katherine says:

    Suggestion – review 100% Pure – an all-natural and organic skin and makeup line. They are based in Oakland so I’m sure it would be easy to get samples to review.

Her newest favorite thing is to stand on her back legs and put her front paws on you and she loves to have her front shoulders scratched. She will do this for at least 5 min! ๐Ÿ™‚
