Win a $50 Sephora eGift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog
Good morning, young lady. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s the weekend, and wouldn’t ya know it? I feel a little out of it today, so please bear with me if you can. I’m not sure why, but it’s like everything’s moving in slow motion for me. I didn’t sleep poorly last night, so I don’t think that’s why. I just…don’t know, feel…slower…than…usual. And Tabs is really bothered about it, too, as you can tell from this very revealing pic:


I believe it accurately conveys how he feels about my mental struggles this morning: “Talk to the butt.”

See, when Tabs is having “one of those mornings,” he just flees to the safety of his cat tower and sleeps it off.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could do that sometimes? — flee to our cat towers.

I’m serious. I wish I had a giant cat tower built to human scale. It would have to be about 42 feet tall, though, with better carpeting, and would probably require an elevator because I ain’t climbing up the side of no 42-foot-tall cat tower. I’m not THAT crazy, LOL!

While I research construction costs, why don’t we have a little fun this morning and get this weekend off to a good start? ๐Ÿ™‚ I think you know what that means. It’s…

    Hi Karen! Love your blog and most especially TABS! I have actually worked on a farm- sort of. I am going back to school (career change!) to become a RVT and my school has a farm. It really is so much fun working with the sheep, goats, chickens and such. I have never had the opportunity to be around these kinds of animals and I was surprised at how much I actually enjoyed it! Looking forward to more great posts.

  9. Natalie says:

    I would love to win!!!!! Thanks Karen ๐Ÿ™‚

    Some Randomness: comment about anything..

    I wish the music from the 90’s would comeback in full effect! So many great artists and groups to choose from. Music makes the world go round and we’re lacking that feel good music.

  12. Terri says:

    Hi Karen and Tabs! I would love a cat tower (or some place) to go when I’m having “one of those mornings.”

  13. T.Davis says:

    This heat wave in NY is NO JOKE!!!!!!

  14. Ingrid says:

    So, since we are feeling random today, I was thinking about jello since I have the flu. I mean I really hate jello (no offense to its creators) but I love it when I’m sick. Its a crazy phenomenon.

  15. Mary says:

    I have a teapot in the shape of a frog. When I was catsitting for my mom (I took her cat to my place for a few weeks), he kept trying to kiss the frog teapot! I think he thought it was a frog prince. ๐Ÿ˜›

  17. Molly SC says:

    I went to grab a popsicle last night, and my kitty jumped into the freezer. Poor bugger wants to take her fur coat off, it’s so hot! At least it’s slightly more bearable today than it was yesterday… but DAMN, Boston is HOOOOOOOOT.

  18. Aparnaa says:

    I have started freezing my bedclothes and nightdress a half hour before bed to cool myself off. I feel like Tabs right now – except my hair is wackier!

  19. Ashley says:

    I lived on a chicken farm for about a year with my grandparents in Ohio. Lemme just say that roosters don’t only crow at dawn, but throughout the day as well as into the night. It was difficult to sleep sometimes.

    Thanks for the giveaway !

  26. ashley says:

    karen, pick me!

  27. Jane says:

    I’ve always wanted to live on a farm and next month I will be moving into a house that’s on an acre of land and zoned for farm animals. I already have a horse and I’m going to get a couple of goats.

  35. Denise says:

    Never worked on a farm, but for as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with celebrity deaths. Haven’t brought it up in discussion (much), but just thought I’d throw it out there. (Jonesin’ for eyeshadow to play in; these brushes won’t use themselves.)

  58. Carissa says:

    we adopted two kittens from the humane society about a month ago, and last night was the first night that one of them slept with us on the bed for part of the night (normally they just wrestle and fight with each other while we try our best to ignore it). so i can say that i didn’t really sleep that well last night and am having one of those mornings too! have a great weekend!!

  59. Halifax says:

    I’m just happy it’s the weekend. Have a good one!

  60. Awww Tabs! One of my kitties, Saku, is having a cranky day as well! He’s on top of the hutch in my dining room, with his back turned to us right now.

    Have a great weekend everyone! Stay cool!

  61. chatchien says:

    I once picked cotton on a farm…for three minutes. That was long enough for me.

  62. Shirley says:

    i hope i win!

  63. Leah says:

    Speaking of tabs and his quirks, my french bulldog is OBSESSED with shiny things! He seriously will stalk reflections on the wall of my computer, cell phone, his dog collar. Sometimes we’ll mess with him and shake the reflections and he’ll try to jump up the wall to eat them! Cheap fun and a good way to exercise him, lol.

  64. Lily says:

    maybe thats the heat?

  65. cyra says:

    i need to clean house. grr

  66. Alison says:

    I’m getting married on Monday! AAAH!

  67. Am addicted to watching Quest Crew (A dance crew) on Youtube lately. I know there are a few good ones (e.g. Poreotix and JabbaWockeeZ), but Quest can not only perform together in synchrony but also individually which, to me, makes them a cut above the rest ๐Ÿ˜€

    And no, I’m not a dancer, I have no coordination to do so, but I do wish I could dance, especially like them!

  68. Gala says:

    Tabs looks fab even from behind! Have a great weekend y’all

  72. Edna says:

    I bought a glow in the dark frisbee and it’s AWESOME!!!! Love your blog! ๐Ÿ™‚

  73. Kimber Y. says:

    I’m debating if I should keep or sell my Too Faced Eye Love palette I got from Sephora…I have more than enough eyeshadow to last me 2 lifetimes, but the hoarder in me tells me otherwise!

  74. Kelly says:

    Haha believe it or not my dad used to work on a farm! He used to work on one of those ‘educational’ farms that kids go on fieldtrips to, and he was in charge of all the educational programs there!

  75. Analy says:

    I always have on of those mornings, I hate waking up early specially if I have to go to work! haha I just drink coffee (if not, everyone will suffer!) and put a good song on the radio while driving ๐Ÿ™‚

  76. Joy says:

    Hi Karen! Goodmorning to you..but it’s 12:35 AM here in Manila,Philippines.

    When I have mornings like that, I either spend the day in my pjs or go out (to Sephora) for some retail therapy!

  111. Banana Bread says:

    When I let me dogs out this morning – I am the crazy chihuahua lady with 3! – My little Gidget had a ‘clinger’! It would not come off by itself and I had to lend a paper towel covered hand to help free her from her poop! Yuck!!

  112. Cheree says:

    Happy Saturday!

  113. Step says:

    I’ve never worked on a farm, but I used to go to horse riding day camp in the summers when I was in elementary school. I learned horse riding, horse driving, car driving, then bike riding in that order. That is probably why I still say “whoaaaaaaaa” whenever I want any transportation to stop, be it organic or mechanical.

    The guys at really know their cats. And here is one of their best comic/graphics to prove it:

    Oh goodness, I need a pick-me-up so bad right now! Haha. I’ve had “one of those mornings” for the past week but I’m not doing a very good job handling it. Aside from visiting your blog… Your blog ALWAYS cheers me up! <3 today you've inspired me to actually do something about it! I think I'll pamper myself today… Take a nice bath filled with Lush products, use all my best lotions and my favorite perfume, do a face mask, give myself a mani/pedi… Yes, that sounds perfect for today :]

  135. Yasmine says:

    Hah, well, I can’t say I’ve ever wanted to live on a farm… but, despite the fact that I’m a city kind of girl, I can’t say quiet, rural life hasn’t ever sounded cool.

    Sometimes, when I feel sad, I like to make myself feel worse by staring in the mirror as I cry, and listening to coldplay. It works every time.

  144. Daphney says:

    make it a movie day!!!

  145. Marian says:

    When I have “one of those mornings”, if I can possibly swing it, I have a “beauty day”! I give myself a facial, deep condition my hair, give it a protein treatment, do a mani and pedi. I lounge around and read or watch movies and eat lovely, healthy foods that I try to prepare beautifully.

    I went to CVS with my handsome BF and he bought me N.Y.C Union Square palette, West Village nail polish and Extreme Lip Glider in Mulberry St. Mocha. He’s so sweet!

  157. Marie S. says:

    I’ve never worked on a farm…honestly I don’t think I can. I LOOOOOVE your blog!!!

  158. Rebecca says:

    My son’s sleepover is tonight. Six eight- and nine-year-old hockey players hopped up on soda and birthday cake. Xanax, please?
    A little retail therapy would certainly help me recover from this stressful experience!

  159. Monica M says:

    My boyfriend just went to go work on a farm earlier this week! He’s a cook and his restaurant gets a lot of produce from this local organic farm, so he went to go check it out… And by check it out, I mean pull weeds! Lots and lots of weeds.. Apparently you get those when you don’t use pesticides. The plus side is he did get to take home about a dozen farm fresh eggs ๐Ÿ™‚

  160. ashley says:

    i am having one of those mornings too. if the sun wasn’t melting my city right now, i would probably be out on a drive, blaring a chill playlist.

  161. Caitlin says:

    I posted something already but don’t see it on the comments list. Hopefully I haven’t entered a million times!

  162. auroragyps says:

    I have never worked on a farm, but I used to visit my aunt & uncle in the Catskills all the time and they raised chickens, rabbits, geese, and even pigs a couple of years. Their next door neighbor (who’s property was on both sides of the road) was a dairy farm, so you’d see cows hanging out less than 100′ from their property all the time. Cows are cool. Pigs are big, smelly, & not as cool as cows.

  163. Cindy Wilson says:

    Having one of those mornings too. But having a choco munchkin and seeing my dog Taz waking up stretching and begging for his tummy to be rubbed made it a little better

  164. gowri says:

    the happiest day in my life..hope this continues..

  165. Nancy says:

    Oh I really need this Gift Card for my Darling Daughter in Vermont.
    She has worked on a farm and didn’t love it but has a huge garden at her house now.
    She also has a Four month old.Boy and would never think of buying makeup with her limited funds.
    Love love love your blog!!

  166. Carolyn says:

    Just discovered your blog a few days ago and I love it! I’m kind of having one of those off mornings/days too. I’m all achy and just not feeling right. Let’s hope it gets better for the both of us!

  167. Sonja says:

    Farms are amazing !!!

  168. katheel says:

    My mom lives in San Diego, and they just had a groupon for one of the few Chamorro/Guamanian restaurants left in that area, so I bought her two. She’s gonna get her lumpia and adobo on (similar but not exactly the same as Filipino adobo). Am jealous. Might have to fly out there to help her eat it all. ๐Ÿ™‚

  169. Courtney says:

    I have visited my family farm and done some work, but never really worked on a farm. Can I just say that the smell of a chicken coop may be the worst smell ever?

  170. Allison C says:

    I usually drink coffee and check out new posts on your blog =)

  171. Ceci says:

    I slept pretty badly because of the humidity and relentless heat. No AC, just a fan and a wet towel for relief.

  172. Rose says:

    I’m having one of those mornings (well, now afternoon) as well. Can’t seem to get myself going!

  173. Audrey says:

    Haha… I have ‘one of those mornings’ a lot! Luckily not today, though. I usually try to exercise it off.
    I actually have worked on a farm! I went to a private school for a year (in 3rd grade) and we had gardens and farms that we worked on sometimes. We also helped to raise chickens, calves, and sheep. This was a Waldorf school, by the way, if you’ve ever heard of them. I also milked cows at a sustainable ranch in Costa Rica.

  174. maxi says:

    Hey Karen ๐Ÿ™‚

By the way, UD Canonball mascara is the BOMB!! Not only is it the best waterproof mascara ever, it’s a great every day mascara! I’ve never tried a waterproof I loved until now…thanks for recommending it, Karen!

  193. Tina T says:

    T-Money & K-Dawg rock my socks!!! Lol

  197. Nina A. says:

    I never worked on a farm, but I used to hear endless amount of stories about it from my mom. She said that it hurts it back endlessly. She wanted to stop but she couldn’t because it was her father’s job, and she was helping him

  198. Tammy says:

    I’m watching a Snapped marathon. As crazy as this show is, I love it.

  199. Joanne says:

    waking up in the morning has become slow for me because….I am pregnant!! I’m happy but my husband is overseas. He’ll only come back for the birth of our child, but I’m still excited ๐Ÿ™‚

  200. Lauren says:

    I love your blog! Thank you so much for all the great reviews! Oh and when I’m having “one of those mornings” I can usually overcome it with the perfect combination of coffee and beauty blog reading, lol.

  201. Barbara says:

    LOVE your blog and love the contests! Thanks, Karen!

    Also, everybody should watch Friday Night Lights – most perfect show on TV. Just caught up and watched the series finale last night. It’s beautiful! And I hate football! ๐Ÿ™‚

  205. Christine says:

    Hmm, when I’m having one of *those* mornings if I have a bit of time I have a banana (there must be something in them that always makes me feel better!), do a bit of yoga, and finish it with a sweetsy coffee drink (special treat, not a regular thing) if I didn’t sleep well that night.

    If there’s no time for that I cue up my favorite song on my iPod and ride it out till the afternoon. Hope you’re feeling better!

  213. swarna says:

    love makeup

  214. I just went the the FARMers market today, does that count? I didn’t buy anything, but that’s only because we’ve had so little nice weather that very few sellers had English Peas, and the ones that did looked anorexic (the peas, not the people) and were very expensive. I need my fresh pea fix!!

  215. Kristina says:

    Loving this lazy Saturday morning, but now it must end. Got to get ready for a party. Oh well time to play with makeup.

  232. Amanda says:

    Not worked on a farm, but my grandpa had one with cows, two horses and a billy goat that ate my grandma’s rose!!

  233. Amanda says:

    I’ve never worked on a farm, which is probably a good thing – I have one plant (basil) and I’m probably going to kill it. But I have had baby cows try to eat my shirt before – they’re so cute you let them do it, too.

  234. Karen says:

    Target is such an awesome store!

  235. K says:

    Exhausted from watching the news (about Oslo) since I got off work yesterday! So horrific!

  256. bianca says:

    I ate a roasted ant once. Just once. It was scratchy and awful and still had its legs, but since I tossed it as far back in my mouth as possible and refused to chew, my lipgloss was still totally delicious after the dry heaves were over! =)

  257. Becky says:

    i like cats ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve never worked on a farm, but we used to visit our local one all the time growing up. I liked to feed the goats and they had the absolute best candy shop.

    …How do you come up with these questions anyway? Haha. There have been times where I’ve read these and thought “Oh no, she shouldn’t list so many suggestions in one post or she’ll run out of ideas!”

    A good stretch and change of environment usually gets me over one of “those” mornings…

  270. Sara says:

    Blugh. I had one of those mornings too. Everything seem to just go wrong. You know my makeup has never been so terrible it had to be redone? ………………..until this morning. Apparently the concealer (that looks really wrong) didn’t play well with my sunscreen and it looked…ugh, just weird and terrible and like a splatter mess. So I had to start all over and be even later to leave.

  271. Saffron says:

  288. Yilise says:

    when I have one of those mornings, I like to attend a yoga or pilates class. I know I know, it takes all forms of power and persuasion to get the butt off the bed and into workout clothes, not to mention actually getting to the place. But I find that after one session, I feel ready to face whatever the day has in store and actually have fun!

  301. Tone says:

    The crazier the better? Well, to be honest, the craziest thing I can think of telling you in this moment is that the capital of my teeny, tiny, pretty little country is both shaken and heavily stirred after the most unbelievable event ever.

    I’m sure you’ve heard, but if not there was both a bombing and a wild shooting episode in Oslo, the capital of Norway, yesterday, and there really is hard to focus on anything else. To be honest, I feel kind of bad even entering your contest, but I guess it won’t do any harm..

    One “one of those days” I just run to my computer and start searching for music. Like good old classic funk tunes, and then I realize I know the sample and search for it, then I have some other brilliant idea to lose time on the net. After half an hour to one hour I’m cured and ready to work ๐Ÿ˜‰ (ok, sometimes maybe after 3 hours!!)

    One of those mornings=more coffee more coffee more coffee!!!

  324. mm says:

    I’d love to just crawl back under the covers after “one of those mornings”, but usually I can make do with an extra cup of coffee.

  325. Annaham says:

    Despite the fact that I love hot weather, I am looking forward to Fall because the makeup I wear won’t be melting off my face (or feeling like it is) as the weather cools down!

  326. Alyse says:

    When my menagerie (3 kittens, 1 old-man cat, and 1 year-old puppy) aren’t in the mood to cheer me up, I have a fallback plan…the animal shelter I volunteer at! Tons of snuggly cats and kittens to cheer me up, and hopefully I cheer them up as well. Whenever I see the tabbies, I always get the urge to have them pose in pictures with makeup, like Tabs!

  327. Shyra says:

    Hi Karen! How’s your Saturday so far? It’s already Sunday here in Malaysia and my Saturday was great…because I managed to buy 3 of the latest Paul & Joe Fall 2011’s lipsticks! (Talk about being greedy ey? :p) That means a hole in my purse but hey, a happier me! Have a great weekend! XD

  328. Joyce says:

    I never worked on a farm, but does farmville count?

    I’m still waiting for Dior’s Mitzah palette to come out in the Fall.

    Thanks for the giveaway! Today’s just one of those lazy Saturdays…it’s so hot here, there’s hardly anything else to do. I think we left the house for about an hour and a half, and otherwise have just been lounging around inside.

  352. Cass says:

    It depends on how bad the morning is and what I have to do that day. If it was a Saturday, I would just get back into bed for a few hours. If I couldn’t fall back asleep, I would try to do something relaxing like watch a silly, chick flick or read a book.

    Hope you are feeling better!

    It’s soo hot in Chicago… Did you know I wasn’t that big of a cat person until I found this blog?

  369. Dani C says:

    If I have one of those days, then I must have 1.) A piece of dark chocolate. Richness = decadence. 2.) My favorite lipstick on (YSL Sheer Candy in Lush Coconut) because it just makes me feel a little bit prettier. 3.) A VERY deep breath. Then hopefully I can restart my day. Cocktails work too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hope you have a great day Karen

  373. Tierra says:

    Bad morning = coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.

  374. OK, I just need to rant for a minute, so feel free to ignore the rest of this comment (but it is here b/c a little perfume pick-me-up would really make the day brighter… keeping my fingers crossed).

    One of my coworkers just suddenly quit a couple of weeks ago. No two weeks notice, no warning of any kind, just didn’t show up one day. She had legit reasons (single mom who already has another full-time job + working on a degree), but still, it left us in a bit of a lurch.

    So I find out today that another coworker did the same thing yesterday– just called in and said she wasn’t going to show up anymore. So now we’re 2 people short at the busiest time of the year for us. Plus the fact that this 2nd person had a grant funded position and we don’t know if we’re going to be able to apply the rest of the grant to something else or if it is just gone now. PLUS the fact that I really thought I was getting to be friends with both of these people. But maybe that was just me being overly optimistic.

    AND this means that tomorrow, when I’d normally be working with these two people, I will instead be working with the only 3 people in the city who can really irritate me, and inevitably will, and all 3 of them at once.

    I has a sad.

  375. I used to be OBSESSED with piggys when I was a child. I had all kinds of stuffed animals and loved BABE. Lmao. Aw secretly I’d still love a piggy.

  387. Anna says:

    I’m planning to do a stint WWOOFing soon. It stands for Willing Workers On Organic Farms and basically, you go stay on farms anywhere in the world, and in return for your help on the farm, you get free food and board. Good way to see a new part of the world, methinks!

    i live in one of the few large-for-the-midwest cities in iowa, so tho i’ve been to farms, i’ve never worked on one. i do have two cats and 19 (i think) fish. does that count?

    I just bought a new foundation today – Givenchy Photo Perfexion (that spelling annoys the crap out of me but at least it’s a great product)!

  424. Naomi says:

    I saw Friends With Benefits and Captain America yesterday. FWB was good aside from the typical profanity and sex scenes (which of course should be expected in any “R” rated movie but especially in a movie with a title and topic like that lol; I’m only 18 so stuff like that are “new” to me). Captain America was AMAZING the story was on point and the acting and graphics were great . Not to mention Chris Evans is so fine!

A few friends and I went to an animal sanctuary because we were dying to hold a koala and get our pictures taken. I went first and he bit me! His trainer said this meant he liked me, as male koalas get violent during mating season (!!)

    I milked a goat in my 1st grade field trip to the petting farm. It was by far one of the most bizarre experiences I have ever had.

  455. Yes, I’ve worked on a farm when I was on my elementary days. I remember those days when my siblings play on the hay and mud.

  456. K. says:

    I remember visiting a quail farm when I was in kindergarten. At the time, I really loved quail eggs. So when they gave out free quail eggs at the end of the session, I kinda went…crazy? And the teacher had to gently remind me to not take anymore, ha.

  457. julie says:


  458. Ana says:

    Had a fantastic day, now time to hit the hay.

  468. Gina says:

    Been wanting to get the Tarte amazonian clay blush for a while now!!! Need some color to stay on my cheeks in this hot weather!

  469. Joy P. says:

    One of the trees in the front yard of my uncle attracts lots of bees every morning. When I was young, like about 4-5 years old and I don’t know what a bee is, I just decided to “catch” a bee with my bare hand. I was so good at it that I easily trapped a bee in my hand (or maybe there were just really lots of bees swarming the tree, lol) Unfortunately, the bee doesn’t seem to like being trapped in my hand and so it poked my palm with its stinger. You can’t even imagine how painful it was and all I can remember was that my palm was red and swollen.

  470. Usually I resort to Skarsgarding when I am having one of those mornings. A little YouTube or Facebook search for Alexander or an episode of True Blood and my mood suddenly improves.

  471. Eva says:

    i got in the university i wanted!

  472. Mayra says:

    I can not wait for True Blood today! Eric! Nudity! YES!

    Don’t work on a farm but this morning my cats woke me up at 5am when they decided that playing the Mario Andretti game across the bed was a fab idea. They then naturally proceeded to channel tabs and sleep the rest of the day. Beasts!

  477. Maya says:

    Oh, I could really use that eGift card.

  478. Jaymie says:

    I grew up in a pretty agricultural area and while I didn’t grow up on a farm (We did have ducks and rabbits), my best friend had horses and chickens, and the school we went to took us to many farms to learn about the local dairy and crop farms in the local area in Oregon.

  491. Brody says:

    When I was little I always wanted to have a farm with horses, cows, chickens, etc. Now not so much, but I am thinking that when I eventually buy a house I want a yard big enough for chickens!

  492. elwoods17 says:

    Hope I win! Taking the bar exam in 2 days and this $50 ecard at Sephora would be some much needed beauty retail therapy!!

  503. Jessica says:

    My Grandparents had a farm….. Horses, Chickens, Cows, Emu’s, Ostriches, Barn Cats….

    I had the best day yesterday. First, hubby and I dropped the kid off with grandma. Freedom for two weeks! w00t! Next, I got to browse the beauty aisles at Target. We don’t ahve a Target where I live, so this is a treat. They ahd the Sonia Kashuk flat top brush I wanted a backup of on clearance for 5 bucks so I bought two (all they had left) plus the eyeshadow brush that was also on clearance. I also got another NatureLuxe foundation (a little darker this time for summer), some organix moroccan argan oil conditioner (awesome), that Caress body wash with juniper oil you reviewed recently (also nice), plus a couple more sports bras and another pair of yoga pants.

    After Target, hubby and I went to three more state historic sites that were in the area. You know the numbered historic sites? The numbered ones listed here: We’ve been working on visiting as many as we can. We’ve about finished Santa Barbara and Ventura counties with a couple of chunks taken out of Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo. Whenever we go out of town we check to see if we’ll be close to any! Yesterday we visited one in Newbury Park andf two in Simi Valley. Fun!

    We finished with dinner at the Cheesecake Factory at the Oaks Mall on the way home. Today we’ll both finish up our project/test for summer term at scholl then see Harry Potter. Yay! Been waiting for this!

    Old MacDonald had a farm, EE-I-EE-I-O.
