Two Ways to Win a Sephora eCard on Makeup and Beauty Blog


Rise and shine, morning glory! Saturday is Caturday. πŸ™‚

Have a wonderful weekend. I’m gonna hop on the treadmill for a few miles before meeting my fam to celebrate my dad’s birthday. That’s about all I’ve got going on.

Good luck in this weekend’s Sephora giveaway. Details to enter are just down below (basically, all it takes is a comment and/or a tweet on this post).

What folks are saying…

“Hi Karen!!! Wow, that news definitely gets a hoo ray ray and an elephant!!! (I’ve maybe been watching too much Boardwalk Empire.) Thank you so much!!!”

“What a lovely surprise it was to see your announcement (after completing one of many exams/papers/projects I have this crazy week)! The eCard will definitely ease expenses for this broke, beauty-obsessed college student. Thank you, Karen and Tabs!!”

“Thanks so much, Karen. Just in case you were wondering what I got with it, I decided to go with the Clarisonic Mia–I’ve been wanting it for years now, but have never purchased it because of the price. Your eCard helped me finally buy it! I look forward to using it. Thanks again!”

“Shut the front door! OMG Karen, you have made my day. πŸ™‚ I’m sick in bed with the flu and this has just cheered me up immensely!!!!!!!! BTW, I’m the one that sent you that pic of my pug in a wig a few weeks back LOL! Thanks again, honestly, I’m beyond giddy right now.”

“Thank you SO much Karen! OMG! Wishes really do come true! I can’t believe I won! You have no idea how much this will help me through the holidays. I’ve been an avid fan of your blog for the past two years. Your witty and creative entries, informative makeup information, and beautiful photos have kept me hooked. I look forward to more of it. Goodness, you’ve
seriously just made my week and it’s only Tuesday night!”

“Oh my goodness! Thank you so much Karen (and Tabs, of course)! I really appreciate this! I’d been eyeing the Anastasia brow pencil in Strawburn to match my red hair!”
-Chelsea (and Jiji the kitten and Quincy the bunny)

  1. Elizabeth says:

    My pets prefer wet food, but they get both. One of them is now eating hypo-allergenic food, which is expensive, and the other two eat regular food. So I have to add the canned food to entice them to eat all at once.

    • Jennifer says:

      Hola Chica!

    • Nikki says:

      Hi Karen. I would LOVE to win the gift certificate.

    • Dora says:

      Hi my dog loves dry good but his favorite of all is Peanut Butter!! I do wear shoes in the house all if the time….even if it’s just my slippers. I do not like to go bare foot! I have also been lining my waterlines of my eyes since I started wearing liner. I love all flowers they just brighten up any day!!!!

  2. Agata says:

    Hey Karen!
    Happy Birthday to your dad! I always line by waterlines. I collect teapots and to some, it would seem like I collect nail polishes and make up.

  3. Laurinha says:

    Have a great weekend!
    Happy birthday to yr father!

  4. Kirsten H. says:

    Happy birthday to your dad!

    My cat is indiscriminate, but I’m sure she prefers wet food. Actually, one of her favorite foods is tomato-based sauces. I have to keep an eye on my pasta at all times!

    Lilies and water-lilies are my favorite!

  6. Colleen says:

    Good morning!
    I did a version of your Nars Cyprus-and-Galapagos eye the other day (the shadows, plus Via Appia to line) and it came out very nicely! I’d had Cyprus on my wishlist for a while, saw it as an “unsung hero” and got it when Sephora had their 15%-off. It’s a marvellous eyeshadow.
    Have a great weekend!

  7. Katrina says:

    I’m enjoying my Spring flowers, my daffodils have been open all week and just this morning I noticed my Hyacinths are open. My favorite flower is probably the lily and I still have a couple of months before mine open and I get to enjoy them:)

  8. Tina F. says:

    Hi Karen~ thanks for the giveaway opportunity. My favorite flower is the magnolia flower. They are not that delicate lol, but I love the color, the shape, and the scent of them =)

  9. Joy says:

    I actually don’t like flowers much but I don’t mind orange tiger lilies or the smell of lilac and lily of the valley.

  10. Tiffanie says:

    That flower picture is hilarious! Thanks for the laugh. Happy Saturday!

  11. dani says:

    Tiger lilies are my favorite! In the language of flowers, they mean “dare to love me.”

    I wear shoes in the house when I’m getting ready to leave or when I’ve walked in and don’t feel like taking them out to put into my room right away.

  17. April says:

    I wish I could line my waterline right now but I can feel the pollen in the air. My eyes are so watery perhaps they can water the plants >_<

  18. Doris says:

    I don’t wash my makeup brushes regularly. I just wash them whenever I see the brushes are looking buildup-y. I do not line my waterline either. My eyes get so watery and wash off the liner anyways, so why bother?

  19. JudiC says:

    I love to see all the azaleas in bloom right now.

  20. Doreena says:

    Today the sun is “Shinin on me” <– song from my fav Country Artist Jerrod Niemann! Have a great weekend Y'all & hope you have wonderful family time Karen!

  25. Deborah says:

    I wash my makeup brushes very rarely! Some of my brushes are pretty cheap, so they don’t always take kindly to washing. πŸ™

  26. Yukari says:

    I’m Japanese so I was taught to NEVER wear shoes inside the house. I was so surprised the first time I went over to my friends house and they all wore shoes inside!

    I have not been able to find a lipstick that suits my skin or face shape…so, only lipbalm so far!

  33. Roxanne says:

    We recently switched to Blue Buffalo for our cats. After a week or so we’ll treat them to wet food. Don’t wanna upset kitty tummies with the new food.

  34. Shelby says:

    Pink roses are my favorites! πŸ™‚

  35. Namita says:

  36. A says:

    Falling in love with my smash box master palette lately.

  37. Kerry says:

    Happy birthday to your dad! My cats eat a food from a local holistic pet food company here in NC called Pet Pantry. They have their own delivery guys that bring it to my door! Sometimes I order it at 3am (this happens more often than I like to admit), and it’s at my door before lunchtime the following day.

  38. Ellen says:

    Our kitties definitely prefer dry food, but we generally feed them wet. The only time they get dry food is when we’re going out of town, and then we fill up a big bowl of food for them to eat over a couple of days. They love it, but they know it means we’re leaving them!

  39. Lisa Brown says:

    Favorite flower: carnation

  40. Ellen says:

    I’m not very good at identifying flowers, but purple flowers always catch my eye. And purple eyeshadow, nail polish and even some purple tinted lip colors. Basically anything purple πŸ™‚

  41. Cara says:

    SO glad it is finally spring time!

  42. Lorraine says:

    No shoes in my house- married into an Asian family, so they are left at the door. Have fun with the family and happy birthday to your dad!

  43. janet says:

    Love wearing beautiful bright colors for Spring!!!

  44. Amy says:

    I don’t wash my makeup brushes nearly enough. But hey, I’m the only one who uses them!

  45. Jenn says:

    I just got burnt to a crisp at the beach, but it was worth it!

  46. Chelsea says:

    All’s well on a caturday Saturday. Does it count as a collection even if said collection was unintentional? Because my spice cabinet is boundless (unintentionally so) to the point where I open it up and wonder, yet again, where these seasonings came from.

  47. Ritu R says:

    Hi Karen… I’m a silent spectator of your Blog, and totally love it! Love the ‘Unsung Heroes’ section!
    Would love to win here!
    As for a reply here, well, I wash my make-up brushes every week, like on saturday night, and I leave them to dry on a towel over-night.

  48. Alison says:

    No shoes in the house, ever! (Ok, maybe sometimes- like if you are on your way out the door and you realize you’ve forgotten something in the living room!)

  49. Rie Maeda says:

    I’m Japanese so we don’t wear shoes in the house!

  50. Saffron says:

    I’m testin out my wedding makeup today, done up outrageously fancy for sittin around playing video games and organizing crap today. Thanks for the contest!

  51. Nisa says:

    One of my cats definitely prefer soft food but she loves kibbles too now. I used to baby her so much but now she shifts between those two since she just gave birth πŸ™‚ she needs the soft food for milk production so yeah.

    But generally they prefer kibbles! Plus they don’t spoil as fast.

  52. Amanpreet says:

    I’ve been lusting after the Nars concealer for weeks and weeks since I read your post on it and still haven’t been able to swatch it yet πŸ™

  53. Jana Ricketts says:

    I’m so glad it’s finally spring!! Feels amazing outside πŸ˜€ My fav flower is carnation! I think it’s cool that you can grow them two toned with a different color around the edges. Thanks for the chance Karen :]

  54. Hayley says:

    Hi Karen, I love cats too!!! Mine has to eat special prescription cat food right now, he seems to love it though, so it’s all good. I love reading your blog and your pictures make me laugh. I love how your cat is always featured in them πŸ˜€

  55. Yolanda C says:

    I love tulips….and theBalm is my new favorite make-up brand! Have a great weekend πŸ™‚

  56. Emily says:

    wants hourglass powder!

  57. Rachel says:

    My Bailey will only eat dry food. I’ve never met a cat that has no interest in wet food – even tuna! She’ll smell it, then back away quickly shaking her head, as if she’s trying to get the smell out of her nose!

  58. Rachel says:

    One kitty eats dry food; the other kitty eats wet food! They both are a little tubby. πŸ˜‰

  59. Lauren Rose Miles says:

    I guess you could say I collect medical items from my past. It sounds weird but I still have my 4 removed wisdom teeth, braces for my teeth, and my cast when I was 7. Weird but memorable. Happy Caturday!

  60. Heather USA (@aitch77 FB: rosie areola) says:

    I collect Lennox figurines of Tinkerbell πŸ™‚

  61. Meredith says:

    I have a small collection of antique perfume bottles. One is Gulerain’s Jicky which my grandpa brought back to my grandma from “overseas” during WWII.

  62. Icequeen81 says:

    Wich ones?
    Will the dogs it changes, sometimes dry sometimes wet, it depends very much of the taste of the Dog treats.

    And well our Rooster: we give him dry food, but I’m sure he eats his insects while we are not home. ( no wonder he can’t fly well anymore he is kind has heavy bones now πŸ˜€ , he wont like the idea to call him fat.

  63. Liz says:

    Last time I tried to line my waterline, my eyes turned fire engine red πŸ™ Not a good look for anyone!

  64. Nicole says:

    I don’t line my water lines. I always heard it wasn’t good for my eyes…

  65. paigest says:

    Hey K-Dawg! Haven’t thrown my hat in the ring in a while! Thought I would πŸ™‚ Have fun at your pop’s b-day!!! Hugs! THE Paigest! TTFN!

  70. stephanie says:

    I love ice cream :p

  71. Emily A says:

    The mental image of you making that bouquet in photoshop is cracking me up.

  72. Liz says:

    I only wear shoes inside the house if it has been a while since I swept and there is too much cat litter scattered around. That stuff can hurt when you step on it!

  73. Anastasia says:

    My cat usually eats dry food πŸ™‚

  74. Alison says:

    My feline friend goes bananas for a little bit of wet food in the morning (a la Tabs, it seems), but she mostly eats dry food. She’s not particular!

  75. Jennifer Rivera says:

    I wash my makeup brushes once a week

  76. peach says:

  78. Luana says:

    I often line my waterline.

  83. Margie says:

    I love the smell of pikake, reminds me of Hawaii! πŸ™‚

  84. Elin LLB says:

    I love lining my waterlines.

  85. auroragyps says:

    My favorite flower since I was young is the pansy/viola. I also really like violets (not African Violets.. that’d be my mom πŸ˜‰ ), but pansies are my definite fav. I collect pansy things too, though I don’t buy many anymore, and I have TONS of stuff like my dinner ware, mugs, vases, tea cups & saucers, tees, pictures, and other misc things.

  86. Joanne E. says:

    English roses are my favorite flowers.

  87. megan says:

  88. Stephanie H says:

    Right now I’m sitting in my college library writing an essay about Emily Dickinson’s poetry and sipping a white chocolate mocha from Starbucks listening to selena gomez, kind of wanting guacamole (did I spell that right?) Contemplating my English major and wanting to go home and cuddle up to my Sonia Kashuk goodies.

    oh, and turtles. just because-

    The weather is perfect! I am getting pretty tan already, I’ll probably need a new foundation soon.

  93. Rebecca Cash says:

    My sweet kitty won’t eat anything wet. Dry kibble for her only!

  94. Rebecca says:

    My favorite flowers are peonies. They are expensive and hard to find where I live so I only have them every once in a great while. My backup favorites are tulips and iris.
    Once at school there was a discussion about flowers and my then six-year-old daughter announced quite loudly that her mom liked peonies, except it came out as “panties”. That was an excrutiating phone call.

  95. Nicole says:

    I’ve finally started to work towards a healthier, active lifestyle – just got back from a 6-mile walk.

  96. Jenny D says:

    Finally some gorgeous weather – no snow, rain, but actual sunshine! Time to get out the gardening tools.

    My favorite flower…Lilacs.
    My furbaby, “Lola the Wonder Cat” loves anything chicken w/ gravy.
    Happy Saturday!

    My cat loves wet food, but ONLY pate. None of those shreds or nonsense for the little prince.

  99. mrsshukra says:

    Watching my tape of the Project Runway finale today!

    My favorite flower is the lily. So beautiful. I sure wish I received more of them. πŸ˜€

  102. Saddy says:

    No shoes inside the house. Gross!

    Saddy recently posted … oh, what a lucky girl!

  104. Nat m says:

    Love a good sunny Saturday! Rocking shades and SPF πŸ™‚

  105. Tara says:

  117. gabis says:

    Hi Karen,
    I love your blog and I’m a huge fan of yours. Even though I don’t always leave comments, reading your blog is definitely one of the best parts of my day. I’m really happy that most contests have been opened for international readers as well since I’m from Brazil! xoxo

  118. Rene Groyer (@ReneGroyer) says:

    The first thing I do when I get home is to take off my shoes and then its on with the slippers.Bliss !My zebra finch ,Galaxy only eats his wild bird seed mix and they are dry.He will not touch anything else be it fruit or vegetables. The only wet stuff to pass through his beak is water.

  119. Julie says:

    The warm weather is constantly reminding me to get in shape for summer.

  120. Ashley says:

    I wear my shoes in the house a lot, or I at least walk into my house with them on. I know its polite, but it always freaks me out when people expect you to take your shoes off at the door. I just feel so vulnerable walking barefoot around someone elses house.

  121. Amy says:

    I feel so broke right now. I need a job…or two.

  122. Nobu says:

    Just bought a begonia plant at trader joes to put a little spring in my living room πŸ™‚

    roses and roses!

  129. Julie C. says:

    Love your beauty/makeup blog!

  130. Lydia says:

    Plumerias are my favorite flowers. One of ours finally bloomed last year.

  131. Amy says:

    I always line my waterlines!

    I seem to collect things that smell good (mainly perfumes right now…I’m trying to cut down on the bath products)!

  132. kelly m says:

    My kitties are rescues and when we got them, they would only eat dry and still do. I don’t mind since, they’re messy. can’t imagine trying to clean up wet cat food. they already dump their bowls over about once a day no matter what I

  133. Jody says:

    I don’t really have a favorite flower although I have been eyeing a Calla Lily bouquet for Mother’s day.

  134. camille says:

    happy saturday! yay, you, for getting a workout in! you know it’s eating time when it’s a fam celebration πŸ™‚

  135. Laura says:

    I only shampoo and rinse once, focusing on my scalp, before conditioning.

  136. Cassie says:

    Happy birthday to your dad! It’s my dad and brother’s birthday too so it’s a big family weekend over here too!

    My dog is currently refusing to eat anything that is being offered to her. She seriously only eats when my sister or I feed her. Girl, is spoiled!

    Hope you have a good weekend!!

  137. Sandy says:

    I haven’t lined my waterline since I learned it can cause infections, dry eye, and stys. :-/

  138. Tran says:

    I think one of my favorite flowers would be lilies! Tulips are beautiful also!

  139. Desiree says:

    My absolute favorite flowers especially in the spring are Ranunculus, Tulips, and Stargazer lilies!

  140. Sarah says:

    I’m a bit under the weather, so I’m lounging, drinking hot water w/ fresh lemon and honey while I watch the Yanks go back and forth with the Blue Jays. My hubby’s out grabbing me some hot/sour Thai soup from my fave place – yum.

  141. mini says:

    Tulips are my fav flowers!

  142. Stephanie Smith says:

    I rim my water lines because of advice I got from you! I emailed you a year or two ago, asking advice, which you gave, and it’s been a huge help! Also, my daughter’s name is Violet, so you can guess what my favorite flower is!

  143. Jennifer Ryder says:

    I love tulips and my lilacs are getting ready to bloom soon.
    We live in NH now and since it’s cold a lot of the time we usually wear shoes in the house. When we lived in Hawaii, no way.
    One time my hubs left his slippahs outside and a dog stole them. It was pretty funny watching hubs chase the dog, but he had to go home barefoot since he couldn’t catch it.

  144. Alida Giordano says:

    Good afternoon Karen!
    Happy birthday to your dad!
    My weekend is sooooo relaxed… I live in Cancun and I enjoy the treasures the beach gives me. (Shells, sea glass, and some green eyed tanned hairless guys relaxing on the sand).
    Have an excellent weekend. Hugs for you & Tabs.

  159. Mireya says:

    I hate lining my waterline. Always makes my eyes look smaller and I feel like it ages my eyes, too. But I did do it when I was a teenager.

  178. Cristy says:

    I love African Daisies! But in my 110-117 summer weather they can’t survive! So we only have succulents & cactus…
    Cts. I’m in bed since thursday!!!! I had my embryo transfer πŸ™‚ I’m so happy although it was only one! It was grade A! So It’s been hard for my hub stay in bed until Monday! Then, I can be in the house just standing to the bathroom and to eat! So wish me Luck Karen!! (^җ‑^)

    Caturday is everyday. Spring is finally here to stay in MI, I hope.

  181. Mary says:

    I never used to line my water line, but the more I do my makeup the more I like the look. I’ll line my water line with black to emphasize my lashes but then I’ll use a colored eyeliner on the bottom to make my eyes pop.

  182. Eva says:

    I really hope that I win in a big competition on Tuesday, it would be my dream come true!

  183. I don’t really line my bottom waterline unless it’s nighttime and I’m going for a heavier smoky eye but I always, always line the upper one. I tightline every day and I just feel like it looks cleaner if I line the upper lashline, tighline, and line the waterline.

    The shoes vs no shoes in the house debate is one my boyfriend and I have a lot… he sheds his shoes (and pants) as soon as he comes in the door, while I keep mine (shoes and pants) on all night. I guess I just like wearing shoes?

    Wishing your dad a great birthday!
    Your “do you wear shoes inside” question reminded me of my childhood, when my Russian parents would FORCE me to wear slippers inside at all times (“You’ll catch a cold!”, “Barefoot is for mourning”, etc). When I got to college, I exercised my new freedom to NEVER wear shoes again (inside).

    Hi Karen,

    Hi, I’ve been reading your blog since 2006 (possibly 2007 – not sure..!). I’m a BIG fan of your blog, your photos, and of course, the Tabster!

    Here in L.A., it’s been time for spring flowers for a couple of months now – they’re my favorites, so I try & get as many as I can before our hot summer comes.

    Tulips, daffodils (especially the white & the pale, butter-yellow daffodils), hyacinths & paperwhites, etc. Crocus

    YSL’s waterproof eyeliner is the best for tightlining!

    My kitty diva would prefer to eat canned food all day, every day… or people food. However, she gets a mix of dry and canned because it’s what the humans can make happen.

    I don’t wear shoes in my house if I can help it.

  261. setu rohini says:

    Hi Karen,
    I am super excited about the giveaway. I am extremly passionate about nail art. I can spend entire day browsing through nail art designs, videos or doing nail art on my own.

    And I would be caught dead without liner on my waterline!!!

  262. Cynthia F. says:

    My favorite flowers are lilacs. I can’t get enough of their fragrance.

  263. Kayla S. says:

    Life has been pretty ok of late. Spring has finally come to my corner of the world, and the flowers and sunshine make me so happy! I got a haircut yesterday as kind of a mark-the-change-of-seasons thing, and I’m going to be spending the day with friends.

  264. Alysia says:

    I’m a little lazy so I only shave my legs 2 maybe 3 times a week. I recently noticed a little hair on my big toe so I’ve been shaving that as well.

  269. Esra says:

    Tabs is my favourite!

  270. Trixie says:

    I always line my lower waterline but it tickles me when I try and line my upper waterline so I usually only do that when I’m wearing a colored eyeliner. In that case I would use black on my waterlines. I just can’t go without black eyeliner.

  271. Olivia K says:

    Peonies are my absolute favorite:)

  272. Ebru M says:

    Summer is my fave and I am so ready for warm weather! it has been a long cold/cool winter in NYC.

  274. Jessica W says:

    I have been putting makeup for years now but only yesterday I managed to do my brows right. Oh the joy!

  275. Denise says:

    I never wear shoes in the house. Soon as I come in the door I take them off. I wish I lived in a climate where I could wear flip flops year round. I don’t count those as shoes, they’re pretty much almost slippers.

  276. Kristen says:

    No shoes inside the house. And yesterday was my dad’s birthday too!

  283. bonnie says:

    all I want is Ryan, you can have the other boys

  284. TrippyPixie says:

    Nobody in my family EVER wears their outside shoes inside the house. We usually go around barefoot or with socks on. If we do wear shoes, then we wear house slippers instead.

    I freak out when other people come to my house and try to keep their shoes on, or if they want me to wear my shoes inside their house. It’s uncomfortable and makes your house dirty!

  285. Kim says:

    My favorite flower is the rose. I’ve loved them since at least age 8. Thank u again for the opportunity to win.

  286. Pam says:

    Yes, I rinse and repeat when I shampoo.

  289. Ann says:

    My favorite flower is the peony.

  290. Kay says:

    Since I only wear makeup once or twice a week, I wash my makeup brushes once a week.

  291. ReneeP says:

    That pic had me laughing out loud like a crazy lady! I love ALL flowers, I have so many I really can’t say I have a favorite, they might get jealous.

    i love makeup!

  296. MK says:

    As much as I love the look from lining my water line, I think it’s too severe most of the time with my dark features. So I only do it when I’m getting really dressed up and going full face for a special occasion or event.

  297. Darlene says:

    I love passion flowers. They are so beautiful πŸ™‚

    Hiya Karen!!! Great to be back πŸ˜€
    I hope your weekend has been good to you! I don’t quite remember what I did with mine…except I did went swimming while it was raining and thundering last night bc I thought “YOLO, GIRL YOU’RE IN YOUR TWENTIES.” Great idea, except it was a tad dangerous LOL.
    I actually don’t like receiving flowers lol. I prefer to see them planted on the ground, where they can thrive and be happy πŸ˜€ But I do LOVE rose-scented things! I don’t have a pet yet bc I’m still unemployed πŸ™ But I would totally be the kind of crazy to cook for my dog πŸ™‚
    No I don’t wear shoes indoors if I’m at my family’s house or my own place! Pros of being Asian πŸ™‚ I absolutely love being barefood indoors!
    I shave my legs a lot more often than I need to! I just moved from a cold climate to a really warm climate…so it’s been a transition LOL (excuses, excuses…). But I’ll shave only when I’m wearing a dress, shorts, or going out. Other than that, I let ’em grow πŸ˜‰
    I wash my makeup brushes once a week, or once every other week. It really depends on how much I’ve been using them bc I’m trying this thing where I don’t wear makeup everyday (it’s been quite hard lol).
    Thanks for reading Karen! Cheers to Monday!!

    I’m off to Sephora on Friday to get a Nars Sheer Glow foundie!

  335. Bhavi says:

    I’ve been reading your blog for a little while now, and I love it! If I’m getting something new, I always check here first to see if you’ve done a review on it. You have a great way with words! And I try to wash my brushes at least once a week, but that doesn’t always happen.

  336. Jaa Maurer says:

    I don’t think I wash my brushes often enough,I need to do that now!! =D

  337. Grace Nicodemus says:

    I normally don’t wear shoes around the house unless they’re brand new! And I love shoes so I guess you know how that goes…

  338. Jane says:

    My kitties will eat anything they can get their paws on! Such fatties.

  339. Jenn S. says:

    I sometimes line my waterline with a nude-peach pencil from Hard Candy to brighten my eyes and make me look more awake. If I lined with black, it would cause my eyes to appear smaller. I do underline my eyes sometimes, especially for a smokey eye.

  340. Lauren K says:

    I am spending all weekend studying for an econ final and winning this giftcard would really brighten up this dreary week! – Tired, beauty obsessed IU student

  341. Hillary says:

    I might have drooled at that bouquet of hot men.

  342. kala says:

    pain and gain was funny.. but im not too keen of nudity

  343. Leslie says:

    I love your blog but more importantly I love your hunk/cat bouquet.

  344. Kristy says:

    Yesterday was my twenty fourth birthday, and normally I dislike celebrating…but my brother surprised me by coming home from college! Awesome bday present.

  353. Heather says:

    I always line my waterline with urban decay 24/7 in zero

  354. Adriana RP says:

    My dog loves the dry and crunchy food! She loves when we open a new packet!

  355. Cat says:

    I never wear shoes at home, and if I can get away with it, I wear mostly flip-flops or Toms. Easy to slip on and go. During the winter, though, and a lot of the months that aren’t the summer, it’s raining cats and dogs a lot (thanks, Oregon!), so I go for easy boots like faux suede slouches that zip up or wannabe Uggs (thanks, Payless!). I go for comfort as often as possible, flats for work even! I go barefoot at home, but it does keep me in line with pedicures. πŸ˜‰

  356. Paula says:

    I never win this raffle! </3

  357. I wash my makeup brushes once every week, sooner if they are really bad! If I had a super power, it would be to clean makeup brushes at the blink of an eye. Haha!

  358. Jaime says:

    Cherry Blossoms are my favorite

  369. Rhia R. says:

  370. Mai says:

    I try to wash my brushes once a week though I often will spot clean in between uses.

  383. Jean says:

    I love ranunculus(usususus) but the smell of freesias make my eyes fool back into my head (with bliss)

  384. Jean says:

    I love ranunculus(usususus) but the smell of freesias makes my eyes roll back into my head – with bliss. Should make that clear.

  385. Carlee says:

    I love white orchids! πŸ™‚

  386. Lauretta says:

    Tatum! Yes! πŸ™‚

    I looove orchids. I wash my foundation brush daily and my loose powder/blush brush every few days to try to keep my horrible skin from breaking out. It doesn’t work, but I’m hoping it helps. My other brushes get washed every *mumble, mumble*….

    I just want to say that I absolutely love your blog, and I appreciate you giving us the chance to win the $50 gift card. Have a lovely evening and hope you had a nice birthday visit with your dad! Γ’β„’Β₯

  391. Chanelle (C.M.) says:

    My kitty has cancer and there’s a big tumor in her mouth, so she can no longer eat dry food and has had to switch to wet food πŸ™

  392. Cherie says:

    Blue delphiniums are my favorite flower.

    Hi Karen, my dog loves dry food but his favorite is Peanut Butter..he loves it and I love him so of course he gets a lot of Peanut Butter treats. Not sure if my first comment went through 😊

  400. brittany says:

    just spent way too much at sephora!

  401. Janet says:

    I collect makeup of course! I’m trying to weed out the old stuff right now to condense my collection πŸ™‚

  402. Sheryl says:

    I desperately need to find the right foundation. So far, I have fallen for Makeup Forever and MAC. I wonder which will make the final cut?

  403. christine dianne says:

    happy birthday to your dad !!!

  404. Jessy W says:

    Lovin’ life right now. Watching boy shows with my hubs.

  405. deyna a. says:

    wow, good thing i decided to check back on your website before heading to bed. i might have missed this contest! i don’t have an extensive amount of making – just beginning really i’d love to win !

    entry? – lipstick and all things lips are what started my love for makeup. so easy, no brushes needed and you can make as much of a statement as you want πŸ™‚

  406. Erin says:

    Lately I’ve been on the search for a purple lipstick, but I’m a little bummed at how few companies make ’em. So few options, and I’d prefer to not spend a fortune on a fun color I can’t necessarily wear all that often. Orange, on the other hand, has a handful of great (and reasonably priced) options!

  407. I love lilacs! I wish we grew them in our yard. They are so pretty and just smell lovely.

  408. Lisa says:

    My kitties get both. They’re spoiled!

  409. Tara C says:

    Great giveaway! Thank you so much πŸ™‚

    Hi! We are no wearing shoes inside the house kind of home.

  415. annette says:

    Well the weekend flew by. Onto another week.

  416. Tanya says:

    My fat kitty prefers people food/table scraps lol. But I refuse to give it to him. He’ll eat anything but he throws up alot wet food or dry food πŸ™ So I give him purina sensitive

  417. heather says:

    i can never wear shoes inside the house. my dogs track enough dirt around!

    Coffee at 10pm is probably not a good idea, but sometimes you just need a little pick me up!

  430. Michelle Teixeira says:

    I think that I may have hoarder tendencies. I hold onto bags, packaging, magazines, cosmetics, clothing that I haven’t worn in ten years. Well, at least I am organised!

  431. Leslie Singson says:

    I absolutely love your blog! You’re def my go-to beauty guru online not only because we’re similar in terms of skin tone (I am also a Filipina!) but also because you’re so effin hilarious. Keep it up the good work πŸ™‚

  432. Toby says:

    We do not wear shoes inside the house!

  434. Melissa says:

    Bought Alterna shampoo + conditioner today! Excited to try it out!

  435. Julia says:

    I always rim my waterlines with a darker shade, even if it’s just with a soft taupe shade. My lower waterlines open outwards quite a lot so it just looks too obvious and a bit creepy, even.

  436. Isabel says:

    I never wear shoes in the house! Makes cleaning easier πŸ˜€

  437. BooBooNinja says:

    I absolutely adore lilies and am planning to get a bouquet of lilies for my wedding in June!

  443. layla says:

    I usually only shampoo once and don’t repeat unless i’ve done a hot oil treatment. then its usually rinse and repeat a few times to get all the oil out.. lol

  444. Tiffany says:

    I never rinse and repeat! I think that would dry my hair out too much. I never understood that direction anyway πŸ˜›

  445. Kimmie says:

    Happy Caturday (a little bit late)!

  446. jean says:

    I need some new makeup to wear for my sister’s wedding this summer, so keeping my fingers crossed that I win the giftcard πŸ™‚ Thanks!

    Chile please! Shoes in the house? In the south? Uh nay nay fluffy! They are the first thing that get flung off me when I get home. I love barefootin’ it!
