Win a $50 Sephora eGift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog
Mornin’, y’all (said in my best Southern drawl). I’m still a little woozy getting up, so please forgive me if my fingertips trip on the keess — on the keys, okay? I’ll be much better as soon as I’ve had some coffee.

Anything new in your corner of the aquarium? After a late dinner of baked trout wrapped in banana leave (that’s how they spelled it on the menu) and veggies last night at a place in San Rafael called My Thai (Great name, right? Great food, too.), we came straight home.


But then I brought my laptop to bed…

I gotta stop doing that. Wi-Fi has not been kind to me in the sleep department lately. It makes it too easy to stay up too late watching online TV and surfing the web for prospective cat rescues.

Must. Exercise. More. Discipline.

Yeah, right… Not with kitten season upon us and new episodes of Project Runway to watch. πŸ™‚

Seriously, Burt, what happened, man? Gotta hold it together.

Anywho, I hope you have a great weekend ahead of you. Let’s try to get it off to a good start right now, and I’m sure by now you know what that means. It’s…

    I’m with you on the late night laptop-ing. I was out late, my bf and I went about an hour away so he could get some magazines (and I may have found a thing or 5 at Ulta) and then had a late dinner at Uno (made later by a waitress who disappeared leaving me with food but no silverware) My plan the whole way home was to go right to bed, but instead pulled out my computer and watched 2 episodes of MasterChef (I missed a few at the beginning, so I need to catch up before Fox takes them down)

    Do you use Q-tips in your ears. I’m trying to quit!

  31. Molly SC says:

    Oh my god… my laptop is like an extension of my body. It’s also my TV, so that doesn’t really help the situation πŸ˜‰

  32. raquel says:

    I’m on my way to a farmers market, I’m excited!!!

  33. Mariee says:

    I used to bring my laptop to bed, my now it’s usually just the iPad or iPhone.

  34. Genesis says:

    That’s my goal… Excercise

  35. I used to have a serious acne problem when I was younger, like 15-17 years old, but through a combination of hormonal medication (That looks and works like contraceptives) and diligent once-every-2 weeks facial, my skin thankfully cleared up. Nothing I tried worked at that time, so it was pretty heartbreaking.

    The issue contributed to my OCD (Obsessive compulsive disorder)- now I’m afraid of touching my face without first washing my hands, leading to me constantly washing my hands for fear of germs and bacteria and stuff on it, or touching my face with anything at all that I suspect isn’t “clean”. I also take pains to make sure that my bed and clothes, for instance, are also clean before coming in contact with my face, and I take pains to sanitise the things I use often at least once every week.

    Right now I don’t have oily, acne-ridden skin as I used to, and because of hormones my skin is now dry and sensitive, though sometimes due to the sensitivity I do get a few breakouts, but it’s nothing Egyptian Magic can’t save it now πŸ˜› I’m a convert to Egyptian Magic- it sounds and looks really gimicky, but is really magic.

  36. Laura says:

    I love using my laptop in bed ! πŸ˜‰
    Thanks for this giveaway, love your blog !

  37. Sara says:

    I adore Project Runway! And I have to agree about Burt. He seemed like he didn’t care at all, which is sad, especially after the dress that won him immunity was so cute!

  38. Jenny says:

    I am on my laptop in bed right now! It’s the last thing I do before I go to bed, and the first thing I do when I wake up (on days when I don’t have to rush to work– like this morning!) I am enjoying sleeping in and being lazy before I head to work later at my 2nd job. Have a great weekend, everyone!

  39. Wynell says:

    I want some more Nars blushes !!!

  40. Cindy G says:

    I’m watching the previous seasons of True Blood, so I’ve been bringing my laptop to bed more often πŸ˜€

  41. lindsay says:

    My laptop lives with me. It even sleeps on the nightstand next to me. I’ve read that that’s not the best thing to do, that it interferes with sleep, but I’m way too attached to it.

  42. vonnie says:

    i used to use my laptop in bed but it would hurt my back for whatever reason…no matter how i sat….maybe because it’s a huge dinosaur lol!

  44. Lacey says:

    I always bring my laptop to bed! I have terrible headaches often an I’m almost certain they are caused by staring at my computer in the wee hours of the morning. Does that stop me? Nope! Hehe πŸ™‚

  49. Nikolas says:

    Lol I spend hours laying in bed online shopping and watching videos on YouTube and looking at makeup swatches instead of doing what I SHOULD be doing- sleeping hahahaha… How’s Tabs El Debarge doing on this fine morning? πŸ™‚

  50. Kineka says:

    I always used my laptop in bed. I recently got w iPad and it’s worse! There have been many mornings where I’ve woken up with my iPad stuck to my face or under my leg…lol

  51. Amber L. says:

    I definitely need to stop bringing wifi to bed with me! I stay up way too late then can ‘t get my butt outta bed in the morning.

  52. Zoey says:

    I love using my laptop in my bed. It allows me to be lazy and yet awesome (mostly lazy :)) at the same time!

  53. Neela says:

    Favourite acne treatment: Lush’s Cupcake fresh face mask every few days when my face is REALLY bad (I’ve been a mess this summer with all the sweating from humidity). Cetaphil for a face wash, benzoyl peroxide occasionally, and a good moisturizer (currently using CeraVe).

  54. I use my laptop in be quite regularly…what’s better than Netflix, a pillow, and cozy comforter? Oh yeah, and sometimes hubby will watch with me.

  55. Vivien says:

    I love your blog! Although it makes me frustrated that I can never get some of the things you review ‘coz they are just not available where I live >.<

  56. Fav acne treatment?

    Birth control. Oh, sometimes I still get the occasional stress zit, but that’s nothing a little Noxzema can’t fix. But the constant pizza face? Never. Again.

  57. Rhonda says:

    I love hautelook and gilt Groupe! As a matter of fact just made a purchase from Hautelook!

  58. Liz says:

    Last night I dragged my bf to inglot with me. I about cried when he brought over a lipstick for me to try bc he thought I’d look pretty in it.

  61. Anna Merkel says:

    I tried to upload a picture to a website to try on virtual glasses, but my computer is new and so I don’t have any pics on it yet and couldn’t grab any from facebook. So I ordered them without a virtual try-on!

  62. jennifer couzins says:

    love this giveaway! i’m dying to try the new urban decay lush lash mascara and the 24/7 waterproof liquid eyeliner…

  63. Dana C says:

    Thanks for the contest! What should I say? Well hmm… Did you see the photos of the Urban Decay vol 4??? Totally haute lol!

  64. Lars says:

    Yay! Just in time for back-to-school. =)

  65. Amie F says:

    No laptop in bed. It usually remains in its docking station. I usually try to read before sleep and it puts me right out.

  66. Steph says:

    I went camping last night and I was totally afraid of burning the whole forest down. The guy making the fire was totally wasted. Thank god he still knew what he was doing.

  67. Kelsey says:

    Do you ever upload your pic to sites like Daily Makeover to try out new looks and hairstyles?
    I went through a phase in college where I was obsessed with doing this – I wanted to cut my long brown hair into a pixie cut and dye it blond, but I was too chicken to actually go through with it.

    What do you think about makeup and fashion membership sites like HauteLook?
    I think they’re great for women trying to get brand name products on a budget… personally I really don’t care about brand name though.

    WhatÒ€ℒs your favorite acne treatment for breakouts?
    I use Neutrogena On The Spot. It’s no magic solution, but it works the best of anything else I’ve tried. Other than that, I try to go by a “less is more” philosophy; no makeup, only wash my face once a day. My face does a lot better when I treat it this way.

    Do you use your laptop in bed?
    No, I find it uncomfortable.

  68. Amanda says:

    I belong to HauteLook and have only ever purchased one thing – some Urban Decay products. I always check their makeup sales when they have them, but otherwise I don’t pay much attention.

    Have a great weekend!

  69. Sarah H. says:

    For breakouts I love to use something with sulfur in it like Murad’s Clarifying Mask or the Doctor’s Sulfur Mask. Love that stuff! Other than helping with the zits it also just makes my skin feel tighter.

  70. mel says:

    There are a bunch of make up looks I want to try. But they will have to wait until Sept.

  71. amanda johnson says:

    i love this beauty blog <3

    I love the Clinique Acne line. Ahmazinggg

  75. Laurenica says:

    perfect weather here in ny, warm but breezy. trying to put my laptop down and do something fun

  76. VictoriaJane says:

    I think you have to get serious with acne from the get-go – if otc benzoyl peroxide’s not enough – just start out with the family doctor & get referral to derm if you need it/have insurance that will cover it. It’ll save $ & aggro in the long run.

  77. Sarah says:

    Looking forward to fall!

  78. BeckBeck says:

    The only thing that solved acne for me was Differin… now I’ve got a patch of dermatitis on my face that I can’t figure out what to do with.

  79. Jennifer Peters says:

    I love sephora! would be awesome to pick up some new Fall nail colors.

  80. Nichole Clark says:

    I never bring my laptop to bed. I’ve struggled with insomnia most of my life and my doctor told me that I should make sure to keep the bedroom for sleeping and shtupping only, so my husband & I make sure that we dont have a television, computer, office, or anything else that would ruin the “sleep atmosphere. It’s actually helped a bit.

  81. Macha says:

    I’ve spent this morning watching TLC while the BF sleeps ’cause he had a long night.

  82. Marie S. says:

    I always bring my laptop to bed =)…ALWAYS

  83. Heidi says:

    I actually don’t own a laptop!

  84. christina says:

    yay prizes! my neighbor is remodelling his house and the construction is very loud πŸ™

  85. Sela says:

    I always have my laptop near my bed and that means I usually go to sleep 1-2 hours later than I should…. terrible habit but just don’t have the strength to break it yet. Having a potluck dinner tonight so spending my time cleaning & cooking!

  86. Pang says:

    I’m turning 29 tomorrow and I’m thinking about a new look, totally digging Rachel Bilson and Drew Barrymore’s ombré hairstyle.

  90. Angela says:

    I am using my laptop in bed as I enter this contest right now!

  91. Alison says:

    I have accounts on Hautelook, Ideeli, and Gilt Groupe, but I have yet to order anything from any of them. I think part of it is the shipping costs. They’re usually kind of high, and sites like Zappos and Amazon have me totally spoiled with their free shipping!

  92. Kimberly says:

    happy saturday!

  93. Lisa says:

    My kitten is 11 weeks old, and has successfully prevented me from getting ANYTHING done this weekend!

  94. Luann says:

    I also tweeted!

  112. Brit says:

    I love having a laptop, but I sure would love an iPad to take from place to place!

  113. meem says:

    getting your wisdom teeth taken out is no fun at all!

  114. monika says:

    Laptop in bed is too dangerous!!!Before u know it is morning and time to get up…….For acne I like a drop of tea tree oil n that annoying pimple. I like it for everything, actually. My bf tells that I think it will cure everything. And u know, when he is right, he’s right. Just the smell takes a bit getting used to.

  124. TheMissTrious says:

    Happy Saturday !

  125. PS says:

    Try Mario Badescu drying lotion for break outs. You spot treat, don’t put it all over your face! This stuff is awesome & typically works over night. You can’t get it at Sephora, but you can get it at Ultra.

    Oh & all you milk drinkers out there… you might want to change to soy. Milk can cause cystic acne.

    Have a great weekend!

  126. Lillian Omari says:

    I love my weekends no house cleaning for me just lazy day today.

  127. Emily says:

    I love getting inspiration for makeup looks from pictures online. Anytime I see a picture of a celeb or model with a beautiful makeup look, I save that picture into a folder I keep for beauty inspirations. I have a library full of looks I want to try out. I also keep tabs on current trends for when I’m feeling especially fun or experimental.

  128. Nicky Bromow says:

    My dad gave me a tablet pc, means I can bring the Internetz everywhere!!! yay! and my favourite spot treatment for new zits is clean & clear Persa-Gel 5 wich is benzoyl peroxide 5%

    Just left Virginia beach :-/ 7hour drive to new York

  131. Terri says:

    I’ve had a crappy, insane week, and the icing on the cake was having my August Birchbox go missing. The post office swears that it was delivered on Thursday, but I didn’t get it :(. Here’s hoping that next week is considerably better.

  132. Bridget von Huben says:

    I always have my laptop in bed at night. I check this blog and Sephora one last time for the day before I go to bed, just to see if anything new has been posted. : )

  133. Aracely says:

    I bring my iPad to bed and watch movies on the netflix app, I love that app

  134. Katrina says:

    Busy weekend, could really use this gift card to spend on me!

  135. Monika says:

    Just trying my luck here:) Who knows maybe once in my life I would actually win something….

  136. Elena says:

    I always play solitaire before bed for deep sleep;)

  137. Laura says:

  138. Jana says:

    I use my laptop in bed so I usually stay up way too late.

  139. Elin says:

    I’ve tried InStyle’s magazine makeover tool, with terrible results :S

  140. Stephanie says:

    WiFi is the bomb. I’m using my laptop in my bed as we speak.

  147. AK says:

    Happy Saturday! I subscribe to The OUTNET and MyHabit, two great websites for finding killer deals. And I mean killer deals, not like Bluefly who cater to seriously affluent people.

    Best acne treatment? Lavender oil on a q-tip to the offending pimple, and leave it alone. That’s it! It’s a natural pimple killer and it works like a charm.

  148. I’ve got Benefit Skinny Jeans coming in the mail, and I have to say I’m more excited about it than I have been for any makeup in a while!

  149. Melody says:

    You know the funny thing is, I had to try so many acne products before realizing I hadn’t even given clean and clear a try from prior prejudice, but hey whaddayaknow, persagel5 is the one that works! XD

  150. Tierra says:

    Not a laptop, but I usually have my phone or iPad in bed. Nothing like a little youtube before drifting off, lol!

  151. Kylee says:

    im not allowed to have electronics in my room at night πŸ™

  152. Karen says:

    Not so much my laptop, but my phone. It’s basically like a mini laptop, though so I’d consider myself guilty.

  153. Michelle says:

    Excited to hit up Sephora this weekend, I want to try the new Benefit mascara.

  154. amber m says:

    Do you use your laptop in bed? Hmm, is it bad to admit that my laptop has its own pillow and that I have contemplated why no one has yet to invent laptop pjs. lol.

  155. Tina says:

    My iPad 2 has been coming everywhere with me… Including bed. I’m obsessed and it has practically replaced my laptop at this point!
    Thanks for all the awesome posts on makeup and such… If I win the gift card, I will be trying out some of ur recent recommendations for sure!

  156. Cindi says:

    I have yet to use my laptop in bed…
    Who doesn’t absolutely LOVE Sephora?!
    Many thanks, Cindi

  157. Stephanie says:

    I keep my HauteLook account because I always think “maybe I’ll buy something from there”, but I always end up saying screw it because the shipping is always more than the thing I want.

  158. Lívia Alves says:

    I do use my laptop in bed! which is not very good for my back! lol

  159. Gail says:

    Love Bliss Eye makeup remover

  160. Cindi says:

    I follow you on Twitter!

    Again, many thanks to you…

  161. Ariana says:

    I love hautelook, currently they’re having a nyx sale so yay discounted make-up that is already inexpensive without the discount!!!! Hooray for cheapness!

  162. JenJ says:

    Using my laptop in bed right now….smh! So easy to do. Such a bad habit lol!

  163. Jj says:

    Still bad weather over here!

  164. I not only have my laptop in bed, but my iPhone is usually right there beside me, too! And of course, my kitteh πŸ™‚

  165. Beth says:

    I do love HauteLook especially for their makeup deals. I got this awesome Kevin Aucoin Making Faces kit, all the colors rock! I bring it with me whenever I travel. Keeps things simple and I look great!

  166. Suri says:

    Just woke up at 2pm. Being a designate driver for extremely drunk people is so funny! lol

  167. thepaigest says:

    aw man luckily I went to visit my mom this week I had NOOOO idea Project Runway started so I caught up. One of my favorite things to do is quote Tim Gunn! My sister came in from Germany and we were going through the sale rack at Anthro she brought out this crazy twisted thing and she put it on totally wrong. I told her in the words of Tim Gunn if if looks broke fix it but if you can’t make it work take it off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL LOVE THE NEW GROUP sooo much drama. AM I OFF IN THE HEAD because I don’t think the little red head pixie design of brown and orange was bad at all .. when I first saw it I thought it would be in the top and all of them hated it πŸ™ Karen did tabs like the pee pee pads or did he feel it was more for the dawgs?

  168. Deretta says:

    Our little mobile devices make it SO easy to get carried away in the time department!

  169. Angela says:

    I stopped sleeping with the laptop after the laptop melted on the bottom =(

  170. Aimey says:

    OMG. I’m currently on my two-week summer break transitioning from summer school to fall semester and I’m in the same position concerning staying up. Last night, I finally forced myself to go to sleep @ 3AM. And THAT’s considered early. -________-

  171. thepaigest says:

    By the way WORD on Burt he’s one of my favs but let not get all GRETCHEN just yet babe πŸ™‚

  172. quimerula says:


  173. Chloe Anne says:

    Karen, are you really thinking about getting Tabs a kitty buddy? I highly recommend it! Two cats double the fun! I have four feline furbabies of my own, and they make life so purrfect =^..^= =^..^= =^..^= =^..^=

  174. J says:

    Rainy saturday on the internet for me… but not in bed.

  175. Dominique says:

    I don’t have a laptop yet, but my phone goes to bed with me and even the bathroom. I’m always doing something online. Have a great weekend!!

  176. Jane says:

    Had breakast with friends this morning. Such a great way to catch up and not use the whole dday.

  177. Mindy M. says:

    I LOVE Hautelook! And RueLaLa and Ideeli and all the sites like that. I’ve gotten some great Crown brushes from Hautelook!

  178. Amanda says:

    I love Hautelook!!

  179. Lovi says:

  183. Makeupbyti says:

    Awesome! Thanks for the giveaway!

  184. loofah says:

    I’ve been seriously eyeing the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary palette so this would be amazing!

  185. Natalie Wilkinson says:

    i need a job!

  186. Patty says:

    This is a lazy day….only chore left to do is changing the litter. Yuk.

  187. Christine says:

    Now I want that Lace Lorac set grrr

  188. Liz! says:

    It’s my birthday tomorrow and this would be SUCH a lovely present πŸ˜€

  189. Cristina says:

    I Just watched “Limitless” what a great movie! So diffrent, Imagine if everybody take that pill….

  190. phd says:

    I’m feeling pretty well rested this wk, but it could be b/c my laptop’s in the shop. 0_o!

  191. Tilly says:

    Just woke up at 1:00 πŸ™‚

  192. Erin says:

    I unfortunately don’t have wireless internet so my laptop is stuck in my living room. Haha, I think my husband would probably kick it out of bed anyways.
    Erin recently posted … What the…pluck?

  193. Christine says:

    Would use this on some NARS treats!

  194. Dee says:

    School starts next week – ahhh! So not ready for summer to end!

  195. Amanda says:

    I take my laptop to bed all the time! I watched project runway from bed last night, too.


  196. Vik says:

    I enjoy looking at the deals on Hautelook and it feels like the least… shady? of all the deal sites. I don’t know. I did score some gorgeous jewelry and NYX stuff pretty cheaply a couple of times, which was awesome. Can’t complain about that!

  197. Olivia says:

    Hautelook is having a fantastic sale on NYX cosmetics!! so tempted to splurge! πŸ˜€

  198. Carrie Ann says:

    My favorite acne treatment is Murad Clarifying Mask. If you dab it on your zit before you go to bed and leave it on all night, it will clear up much faster. It’s the best thing I’ve ever tried.

  199. Brian aka Roulette says:

    So much stuff I want from Sephora now I’d need at least two cards to cover it. LOL..

    I am always at war at night…abandoning my laptop in favor of sleep is always a tough call for me. I fall asleep on the couch 5/7 nights a week. LOL

  200. Chelsey says:

    I hope you had fun in SD! I bet Tabs missed you a whole lot! <3

  201. bessie says:

    My laptop is always near by bed at night so i can listen to my favorite podcast so i go to sleep. πŸ™‚

  202. des says:

    i love my laptop, i can’t live without it. πŸ™‚

  203. Kate says:

    My favorite spot treatment for acne is from the equate walmart brand. Works like a charm and is priced so low πŸ™‚

  204. onegreatsmile says:

    I look forward to Saturdays. They give me hope that some day I’ll step foot in a Sephora with some spending power!

  205. Trish says:

    I got a package in the mail today – best feeling ever!

  206. laura says:

    hmm, sometimes i use my laptop in bed, but i find that it uncomfortably heats up my lap. i don’t want to get one of those lap desk things, so at the very least there are times when i keep the laptop near my bed..but, i don’t do it too often.

  207. Jessica Leigh says:

    I am going to win one of these chances one day – I just know it! *positive vibes*

  208. helen says:

    OHHHHHHHHHHH kitten season makes me positively weak in the knees! Zeus (the EvRev supermodel) and Zoe were the last two kittens that we adopted. Is T-Money ready to have a baby in the house– are you?? Kittens are just so much fun-and hysterically funny! If I win the Sephora gift card I will have to go and buy Zeus more Make Up For Ever eye liner pencils!

  209. HouseOfPhotoProps says:

    its a lovely sunny saturday!

  210. Roxanna says:

    Aww!! Love Sephora, in need of some new eyeshadows and face powder! Here goes nothing, hope I win πŸ™‚

  211. Amanda says:

    Now that we have a sephora where I live, my bank account is suffering even more! haha πŸ™‚

  212. Victoria says:

    I have the same issue with my laptop!

  213. Kate & Zena says:

    I don’t have a laptop so no laptop in bed for me! If I want to go on the computer, I have to walk down 14 steps and turn on a desktop!

  214. Aimee says:

    love your blog..i would love it if you could do an article on any hair care you would recommend for split ends (im dying)….ohhhh and if you cared my favourite acne treatment is surprisingly a ‘lush’ product called ‘fresh farmacy’ (saved my life)

    :)dont have twitter or i would be tweeting

  215. Tiffany says:

    I can’t wait to get lash extensions on Monday!

  216. Mandy says:

    I spend way too much time on my various gizmos!

  217. Amber Joy says:

    I like Hautelook, ordered from them several times now. Haven’t found any other sites like them that have as much beauty products. Mostly just fashion.

  218. Jhoanna says:

    Just had Klondike! Yum!

  219. Yilise says:

    not quite sure what to think about hautelook. will you do a review about them anytime soon?

  220. Sandy says:

    Looking forward to the MAC me over collection in a couple of weeks, wish they had the products in store to view before the launch date though. Thanks for posting your swatches this week, they look great!

  224. Nancy says:

    Ooh, kittens!

  225. Lisa says:

    One of my guilty pleasures is nail polish. But how much can you really wear? I hate it when the bottle starts looking unloved and unused. How about a nail share amonsgt your friends? You’re tired of one color and she’s ready for another. But I will never share my Chanel polishes…………selfish I know πŸ™

    But mostly it is recycling at its highest form. Love your reviews of everything … I read every day. Thanks for the contest!

  226. Gans says:

    I like frog. I’m not sure what hautelook is but it sounds like it would be real good.

  227. Christie says:

    I have the urge to grab some gorgeous fall makeup colors …. hmmmmm what to get!

  228. Mary says:

    I keep dropping my dang laptop when I bring it to bed!

  229. Bernice says:

    Nope, my laptop stays on my desk πŸ™‚

  230. Helen says:

    I just saw your lipglass on MAC and popped back in to see if you’d posted about it! That is very cool – congrats! It’s exactly the color I was looking for, think I’m gonna order it to wear for my wedding next month πŸ™‚ Leave the laptop in your office – the bedroom is for beauty sleep only!

  231. Krista says:

    Ever since I got my heat disperser for my laptop I pretty much bring my computer with me everywhere, bed included. I’m just slightly addicted… πŸ˜€

  232. Marian says:

    I’m late to the party again. I just discovered Mad Men and stayed up nearly all night this whole week watching all 4 seasons on NetFlix. Wow….what a great show!

  233. Erin says:

    I love using my laptop in bed to read beauty blogs!!

  234. Cass says:

  242. Mary says:

    Tabs, I’m so involved with virtual pets that I keep my laptop under my pillow so I can pet them at 3 a.m. At least you’re real! XOMV

  243. auroragyps says:

    Went to NYC for the first time since I was a kid & I had a blast, even though I was outside in a downpour for most of the time. Stopped into Sephora on 42nd St not too far from Grand Central and it was wonderful. So much better than the one by me, that’s very cramped, always crowded, not well lit, and always too warm. I didn’t buy anything (this time), but I helped one of the employees get a bottle of Sephora- 212 (the last bottle) after she said she liked it on my nails so much (of course I wore 212… I had to do it). πŸ˜€

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  244. Coral says:

    Green isn’t usually one of the colors I go to first. But it felt like that kind of day today.

  245. Christine says:

    I’ve only made a purchase off hautelook once. Shipping to Canada is not worth it if you just get a few items ):

  246. Kristie says:

    Today is my day off! πŸ™‚

  247. colleen b says:

    i use my laptop in bed and i just got a new pink cute lapdesk for it.

  255. Katie says:

    I’m on vacation! Finally!

  256. Hey! I was browsing around on MAC’s website and came across the Bloggers Obsessions! You were the first one on there so I decided to check out your blog and I am in love with it!! Definitely coming back to read some more with the laptop in my bed!

  257. Bhevarri says:

    Haha I’ve been awful about that too! Need to get my sleep schedule on track for school starting soon >.>

  258. Christina says:

    I was at Bath and Body Works today because of that special where you get any signature collection item and you get a free gift with purchase! I realized after I left that I only had my left hand and left foot nails painted but my right hand and right foot were totally bare! Stupid me forgot to finish painting them last night because I had gotten distracted XP

  259. Erin says:

    I always use my laptop in bed! StumbleUpon has become an obsession of mine for great beauty finds and tips. Actually, that is how I found your awesome blog (and gift card giveaway to my favorite store ever! Sephora!) Thanks StumbleUpon! A new blog to follow and a chance at a Sephora gift card! WiFi and my laptop in bed is a habit I will not be breaking anytime soon. πŸ™‚

  260. Martha says:

    I always have my computer in bed with me!! i LOVE hulu!

  263. Hina says:

    Don’t you simply loooove instant pictures?? I just bought the most adorable Fujifilm instant camera. Now I know one thing I’ll definitely be carrying on all my trips! πŸ™‚

    happy saturday, girlie!

  271. Kim Law says:

    I am using my laptop in bed now and for some reason feeling extra tired today.

  272. Soo says:

    I have a love/hate view about sites like HauteLook. it can be such a good source for lower priced makeup but if a company like Rock & Republic Beauty or Urban Decay is selling, all the “good” stuff (usually what I’d want to get) is sold out in the first few minutes the sale starts which can be very frustrating and not worth it in the end. either save money or save time by paying full price, you know?

    I just tried a greenbean cleanser that my friend recently sent me and my face feels so smooth right now!
    Soo recently posted … (10) Pearl Eyeshadows from Inglot

  273. Amber says:

    I have a serious addiction to sites like Hautelook and RueLaLa. Before I go to sleep I check what’s going to be on sale the next day and make sure to be awake by 11 am to catch all the deals. Ahhhhh nothing like retail therapy. Happy Saturday (:

  274. Stephanie says:

    I am addicted to having my laptop in bed. I love to sit in bed at night and read updates on all my favorite blogs (like yours!) and then I watch a silly show to help me wind down. I know they say that it’s not good to do that but it’s a hard habit to break (cue Chicago here).

  275. xochil says:

  292. Nicole O. says:

    Of course I use my laptop on my bed. I’m like glued to my Macbook Pro. It’s kinda ridiculous. Haha.

    Great week so far! In escrow on a house and heard our baby’s heartbeat for the first time on Monday:) Woo hoo! Have a feeling my trips to Sephora are going to be few and far between after February, so would love to do some online shopping…with a gift card of course!

  307. I am wayyyy too shy to upload my pic on any sites. I was very selective in my twitter/facebook profile pics.

    Hope everyone’s having a nice weekend!

    My favorite acne treatment is something w/ salicylic acid. Brings the zit right down. Thanks for the giveaway!

  310. Caroline says:

    I stopped having my laptop in my room. I wasn’t getting adequate sleep! Brought all my electronics (tv/laptop) out, so when I go into my bed to sleep, i’m going into a BEDROOM, not a distracting environment. It helps!:)

    A laptop in bed with a million pillows is the best thing ever. Laptop+youtube was my old treatment for insomnia.

  315. hiba says:

    i spend 75% of my time with my laptop in bed, presumably working on my thesis (keep ur fingers crossed 4 me so i can get it done by november) instead i get stuck on facebook or watching old episodes of himym or big bang theory

  316. Jarucha says:

    I still haven’t purchased anything from Gilt or Hautelook although I browse almost everyday…..don’t know what’s preventing me from doing so. hm.

  317. Sabrina says:

    I love to sit with my laptop in bed in the mornings with a cup of tea and catch up with my blogs that I subed too..its my way having a little me time before everyone in my household gets up

  318. Kathryn says:

    I used to use my laptop in bed at school because there wasn’t a good desk and the couch wasn’t comfortable, but I don’t any more.

  319. Katie says:

    My favorite acne treatment for breakouts is benzoyl peroxide, it’s great! Thanks for the giveaway, Karen!

    It’s really hot in SF today!

  321. Dominique says:

    I love fashion/makeup membership website, however I must admit thus far I am only a window shopper.

  322. Jones says:

    Hi Karen! I just downloaded this thing called f.lux that changes your computer’s display to match the natural light conditions at the time, if that makes any sense. Like, in the day, it’s normal, but as the sun sets, the screen starts to take on a warmer tone that looks more like the fluorescent indoor lights. It’s supposed to be easier on the eyes and make it easier to get to bed after you’ve been working on your computer at night. I’ve only tried it for a couple of days, but it seems to really work so far. (It might look super orange at first, but you can fiddle with the settings.)

  323. Kasey says:

    I love sites like Hautelook. I’ve only purchased a few things, but I still browse a few times a week.

  324. Kaley says:

    I loveee thai food, it’s been too long since I’ve had it.

    I’ve been using a new cream called “Tactuo” for my acne and its cleared up my face within a week or so! I got on the Proactiv bandwagon a few months ago – what a waste of money!

  328. Madelynn says:

    I’m building my makeup kit and starting to get into the beauty industry; I’m going to be a professional soon. This GC would be a dream kick start.

  329. Rachael says:

    I bought a quartet of shadows today from MAC and also a MacBook. I now have to differentiate between “Macs” for the boyfriend.

  330. Sephora yes! I have not been able to shop there in such a long time.

  331. Lily says:

    I can’t concentrate right now.

  332. Christine says:

    I love using my laptop in bed! Except it gets so darn hot :(.

  333. chibicheeks says:

    I get emails from Hautelook but I’ve never bought anything. I haven’t seen much that I would want, but the stuff that I like is still too expensive!

  334. mm says:

    I tried out your Nars Outremer cateye look with a bright purple duochrome-y shade from the UD 15th anniversary collection last night – it was super easy and looked fun and dramatic. Thanks for the tutorial! I’ll definitely be using that look again.

  335. Amy says:

    hope I win, running out of eye cream!

  336. Gauss says:

    I am using my laptop in bed right now! I hurt my foot a few days ago so I’m using the pain as an excuse to sit in bed as much as possible.

  337. Lizbeth says:

    I hope today is my day… Im home alone with my baby while my 2 older girls are with their dad, house sure is quiet πŸ™

  338. Stacey F. says:

  342. Stacey says:

    loves me some Sephora!

  343. Samantha says:

    We just got an iPad 2 as a first anniversary gift and boy is it bad…we’re always poking away or sweeping away either browsing or playing games. Now between my husband and I we have 3 laptops, 1 desktop and an iPad…yea..eletronic overkill.

  344. Maureen says:

    Our cat just stole a pork chop off the kitchen counter and was desperately trying to eat it.

  345. nabel says:

  352. Tahnee says:

  353. Meena says:

  362. Lucia says:

    I tried uploading my pic once to try a new hairstyle but it was just not really accurate and a waste of time, not to mention very unrealistic looking =/ it’s a cool concept though!

  363. Emily says:

    My biggest problem with sites like HauteLook is that I hate paying for shipping and it’s usually too high for me to bother with all but the most amazing deals.

  364. Naomi says:

    Loving the back to school sales πŸ˜€

  365. May says:

    Love Hautelook….wish they would provide some type of shipping deal sometime!

    Hi T-Money and K-Dawg! I’ve only recently stumbled upon your blog and spent two sleep-deprived days ghosting through all (ALL) of your drugstore beauty finds page because I love those and two… because I’m a poor college student. Typical, I know. Anyway, thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  370. BooBooNinja says:

    Pooped from holding a yard sale. Must napppppp nowwwww.

  371. Kathleen says:

    My best acne treatment is whatever my dermatologist perscribes me to ha. Having cystic acne isn’t always fun but you have to keep living and keep trying to find solutions! Your blog has inspired me and has granted me confidence through makeup! Thank you!

  372. Tina Lane says:

    I would love to use my laptop on my bed, but I sleep on the top bunk. It’s such a hassle to bring it up and down a bunk bed

  373. Nora says:

    I like the idea of Hautelook, but i’ve never actually ordered anything from there!

  374. Karen says:

    Tonight we discovered a great little seafood restaurant. It was so good!

  375. Tara says:

    I love looking on Hautelook, I wish they shipped internationally!

  376. Y. says:

    Laptop in bed all the time!!! It’s the best!!! But it equals major losing sleep time:(

  377. alex says:

    too much netflixs for me

  378. Kaianne says:

    I almost exclusively use my laptop in bed! I don’t have a tv at my apartment at school so I do a lot of streaming tv online!

  379. Solangel says:

    I use my laptop in bed, but not that much…it makes my neck hurt way too much -.-

  380. Jocelyn says:

    I use my laptop mostly on my lap…it’s probably not great for it. At school I only have a bed for furniture, so I use it in bed.

  381. gina says:

    i finished book 2 of the hunger games series! EXCITING! i cried a lot :[ i left the third book at work so i have to wait until monday! 😐

  382. Melody says:

  394. Alyse says:

    Atonement is the best book I have read…probably EVER! Eager to see the movie adaptation of it, but highly recommend the book for anyone that hasn’t read it yet. Just glad to have enjoyed a novel before I’m tortured with case after case when law school starts in a week =(

  395. Karen K says:

    I am still lusting hard after that robin’s egg blue triple strand of faceted beads that you bought at Forever 21. Have looked for it in every F21 I go to and no luck. It is beautiful!

  396. Clara says:

    Enjoying a lazy weekend

  397. Myr says:

    I try to keep all technology out of the bedroom – except for an alarm clock, of course. It makes it easier for me to shut down at night. Tweeted too!

  411. Stef says:

    God is so good he gives me 1 pimple only during PMS.. but I have friends with acne problems. Ive noticed that the more u do sumthin about it. Like putting different chemicals. It got worse. Then i was thinkin.. Healthy lifestyle, healthy food, positive outlook in life, washin face before sleeping might reduce acne problems. Protect skin from sunlight also helps too. Anyways..lovin oneself includes taking care of your body..

  412. Sara says:

    I’ m going t o bed early on this fine Saturday night. Adjusting from travel hasn’t been easy this week. It’s like I’m always exhausted and the cats are extra whiny. Why do I leave home, again?

    I only bring my laptop to bed on occasion to watch stuff on Hulu

  450. Angela says:

    Taking Your Laptop To Bed Can Ruin Your Beauty Sleep…
    Not only do we all inevitably wind up staying up way past our bedtime watching videos of kittens bathing puppies, but, also, the type of light a computer emits (blue light) can cause insomnia. This is also true for cell phones & TV’s. I’ve read that we should shut off all of these stimulating toys at least 1 hour before bedtime to negate the sleep disrupting effects. However, Kindles & the such don’t have this effect. So, curl up w/ a relaxing book (digital or old-school) an hour before bed & wake up tomorrow more refreshed & prettier.

  451. Melodyy says:

    Always use my laptop in bed, in fact, i’m doing it right now! (: and I looovee using clinique’s acne solutions for my breakouts. my boyfriend and I swear by it !

I live in Alaska so we’ve never had a Sephora before and I’ve never visited one… I’ve always just ordered online. Now I can actually just pop on over to the store and pick up some stuff!!! So excited! πŸ˜€

  459. Brianna G. says:

    Haute Look is fun but the shipping can definitely hold me back, particularly with already inexpensive lines like Crown Brush. It’s a good deal with more expensive lines like Rock & Republic.

  566. Donna J says:

    I’ve just recently read a couple of negative reviews on the Clairsonic brush and it got me to thinking, you never see any dramatic before and after pictures, even when people claim dramatic results and tell you how much better their skin is. At least Proactiv has those. You don’t see someone going from full on acne to clear skin, or a dry flaky mess and rosacea to nice smooth even skin. If you read the reviews carefully a lot of them will admit they are still getting pimples and still dealing with flaky dryness, but IT’S BETTER! REALLY IT IS! I’m starting to believe that these things don’t work any better than a face cloth, but that when you’re out a ton of money you have to convince yourself that you haven’t been had by the marketing, and you’re not going along with the crowd saying that the emperor is fully dressed when he’s obviously naked. I’m sure some will say that you aren’t supposed to expect dramatic results, well, again, a wash cloth and cleanser will give you clean skin without dramatic results too but it costs 100X less, why pay that much for no dramatic results? That’s my random thoughts for the day. lol

  567. Amy says:

    My first time seeing up close kaldiespcope by Le Matier and love it, it has two purple, a bronze and a dark browny bronze. I so so wanted it. but I was good. I also fell inlove today with Guerlain’s concealer, after 2 hours did not crease. only bummer is the price
