G’morning, cutie, and happy weekend (FINALLY). ๐Ÿ™‚


It’s Caturday, so you know what time it is…Sephora eCard giveaway time!

Take a second before you grab that next cup of coffee to enter with a comment on this post and/or a Twitter tweet (see details below).

Enjoy the rest of your day!

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!”

    I sometimes paint my mom’s nails. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Agata says:

    Hi Karen, I am not wearing any fragrance yet but I am going to wear Lancome la Vie Es Belle later today when I go out. Coffee with just a little bit of 1% milk, no sugar. Happy weekend!

  4. Marcela says:

    Yay! That would be a lovely birthday present!

  5. JudiC says:

    I share a birthday month with you. Today I am 47!

  6. Kim Dang says:

    I love Marc Jacobs Daisy! It’s definitely my favorite scent!

  7. Zoey says:

    I tend to do ponytails over buns.

  8. Sarah says:

    Love your blog!

  9. Brittney says:

    This would be a welcome surprise on a cloudy Saturday!

  10. Samantha says:

    Amazing giveaway!! Love your blog ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Brianna says:

    I take my coffee black! Happy Saturday!

  12. nlm8 says:

    attempting to make my own cream bronzer!

  13. Judy says:

    I’ve been wearing Bath and Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom. Smells better and lasts longer than a lot of perfumes I’ve had that costs 5, 10x more ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  14. Natalie says:

    Ohhh Please let me win, let me win! ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. Megan says:

    Hey! Hope you and Tabs are having a great caturday!

  16. Caitlin says:

    I’m wearing midnight bloom by stila. It comes in a rollerball set with mandarin mist and crime bouquet. Lovely!

  17. Heidi says:

    No ponytail or bun for me. I can’t stand the sensation of having my hair pulled back.

  18. Rebecca says:

    Coffee with skim milk and Splenda. I pet assist for a sweet but neurotic black Lab named Lucy. I wear Creed Sublime Vanille, a gift from my generous husband, but I’m not sure I like it more than Pink Sugar. I’ve painted my daughter’s nails but she is better at painting mine.
    I do not make my bed every day and I don’t make my kids make theirs. They’re only made up when company comes.

  19. Corrinne says:

    When my hair was longer I would bun rather than pony tail. I’ve been wearing it down and wavy since my last cut – so much easier!

  20. Liz says:

    Today I’m gonna dig through my perfume drawer and wear something I haven’t worn in way too long. Hurray for stash shopping!

  21. Erin says:

    I have yet to master the bun, as my hair is straight/fine and doesn’t hold in styles well, but it’s a goal of mine. I need to get work on the whole hair styling thing in general. I blow dry my hair everyday and just leave it down, and I’ve gotten lazy about taking the time to try new things. I tend to experiment with my makeup, and there’s only so much time I can take to get ready in the morning!

  22. Jessie says:

    Woohoo! What a great giveaway! You are so kind to give your lovely readers a gift for something we all love so much- make-up ๐Ÿ™‚ Btw I just finished my coffee with ID Butter Pecan creamer (it’s the best!!)

  23. Lennie says:

    I’m wearing Chanel Chance perfume,it’s wonderful. My children gave it to me for Mother’s Day, every time I get a whiff of it, I feel special.

  24. Missey says:

    I like my coffee with cream and a side of Dove chocolate (just two little minis!)

  25. Tanisha says:

    My Orange tabby Sylvester convinced me to try and win by forcing himself onto the screen while reading the blog! Hope he’s on to something!

  26. Melissa says:

    On my way to Waikiki for a graduation BBQ!

  27. Denise M says:

    honestly no coffee for me, i am a Diet Coke girl

  28. Katie says:

    I’m wearing my hair in a bun today. My hair is pretty unruly so it goes in a bun when I don’t want to deal with it. I’m wearing Bath and Body Works pumpkin body spray. I’m trying out the St. Tropez self-tanning lotion for the first time today. I’ve never worn self tanner before because I am a super pale ginger. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

  29. mini says:

    I like white chocolate mocha in my coffee!!

  30. Nicole says:

    I’m having a me day!

  31. Jenifer says:

    I take it regular, which in NYC means milk-2 sugars

  32. andriana says:

    I do not make my bed on a daily basis.

  33. Nicole says:

    I make the bed first thing when I get up in the morning.

  34. Jenny D says:

    I have my first dog show this weekend! Gotta spend an hour or so making the pup all pretty, then figure out myself!

  35. Jana Ricketts says:

    All I want to do today is lay around, watch movies, and eat ice cream.

  36. Mary says:

    It’s my birthday today!!

  37. Niya says:

    I tend to wear the same medium to high coverage foundation all year round, but the last few years I have been using BB cream in the summer months. This summer, I think I am going to use Boi-ing concealer and a mineral (powder) foundation on top lightly if I can get away with it.

  38. GUSnail says:

    I only ever make my bed when I change the sheets.

  39. Leonora says:

    Hi Karen,

    I don’t drink coffee or almost any other drink. Only water! I’m really liking the new Escada fragrance Cherry in the Air, but it doesn’t last at all. Too bad as I really like its fresh, fruity smell.

  40. Corie says:

    Oh, wishing Sephora had a store where I live!!

  41. Margie says:

    I am going to wear Burberry Brit Sheer today!

  42. Alise Carter says:

    I love any frapp!!!

  44. Ava says:

    I like my sugar with a little bit of coffee ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. Sandra says:

    I take my coffee black and strong. I leave the flavored creamers and stuff like that for desserts!

  46. Katrina says:

    I’ve been rocking the messy bun a lot lately.

  47. Christine says:

    I have been feeling a bit down about being laid off, so winning this would surely be a welcome change of luck! But can someone please tell me where the winners to these giveaways are posted? I never know where to look. Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  48. Tiffanie says:

    I take my coffee with a little creamer and a squirt of caramel syrup. I also take it two or three times a day!

  49. Rosario says:

    Thanks for the giveaway, every week i dream that i could be the winner!!!!

  50. Victoriajane says:

    The ‘what people are saying’ on the Saturday giveaway always makes me smile because I remember going by Lucy the elephant when I was little – we’d always drive by a couple of times each time we’d visit my grandparents in N.J. ๐Ÿ™‚

  51. Michele says:

    I make my bed every day, and drink my coffee black :). I’m looking for a new foundation for summer. I used to love matte foundations, but I’m heady more into the direction of satin finishes to liven up my skin a bit.

  52. Nisa says:

    Hey Karen ๐Ÿ˜€

    My kittens turned a month today XD and every kitten is healthy and active. It makes me wanna cry because they’re sooooo cute!

  53. camille says:

    yay! weekend sephora giveaway time! i painted my sister’s toes when she was pregnant with my 2nd nephew. it looked nice, but she was too wiggly. ๐Ÿ˜› i’ve cleaned up The Man’s feet before. I call him dragon toes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  120. Elvina says:

    Err.. I don’t know what to say)))

  121. Betsy Clark says:

    If I’m drinking “American” coffee, I like it black. Anything stronger, I like milk in it. I’m wearing Ava Luxe No. 23 today…it’s sandalwood, but soft, with a teeny hint of mint? (sounds strange but it works). It’s my weekend perfume… I have her “Crepe de Chine” on my wishlist; on me it smells like a really good soap.

    I never make my bed, haha! I just don’t bother, and if anyone asks, I justify it by pointing to a bunch of articles I read about how you shouldn’t make your bed right after you get out because it helps dust mites and other yucky stuff breed (ew!). But even if that weren’t true, I wouldn’t make it anyway!

I’m no cooking expert, but I love that it’s a new spin on two classics. Your mom would love it, I bet. And then rice and egg, just because. Boom!
