Two Ways to Win a $50 eGift Card from Sephora!

Published in: Just For Fun

  • WINNER: The giveaway is closed now, and the winner is Elizabeth W., for her comment that begins, “Karen, I’m a new subscriber to your blog, and enjoy it so much! Give Tabs a kiss on the head for me…” Congratulations, Elizabeth! If you entered but didn’t win this time around, keep trying, and click here to enter any ongoing giveaways before you jet. 🙂

Win a $50 Sephora eGift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog
Somewhere out there, perhaps right outside your window, the squirrel foreman of a nut collecting work detail is frantically squeaking orders to his crew, “Hurry, men! Winter’s coming! Leave no leaf unturned!”

Rise and shine, morning glory. 🙂 Happy autumn. I hope you slept well.


I felt like kicking off this weekend with a giveaway, but it’s not the only open giveaway round these here parts. If after entering today’s giveaway you also take a moment to enter The 2011 Breast Cancer Awareness Month Sign Project and Giveaway, you could win a monumental $1,126 makeup prize (and it’s very easy to enter). Right now there aren’t many entries, and the odds of winning are about 500,000 times better than the lottery.

I’m just sayin’.

In other news, it’s supposed to be nice and sunny here today, and I plan to milk that for all it’s worth! Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope it’s sunny there and you get to spend some time outside.

Without further ado, it’s…

    Last year I attempted to make a pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving. It came out delicious,but the recipe my sister found required sooooo many ingredients! It also took a lot of time to make. But it sure was g-o-o-d! This year I don’t think I’ll be putting my baking skills to work, I have a 7 week old son, so I have zero time for baking. Maybe my fam won’t notice if I buy one? 😉

  71. Caroline says:

    Love fall! The colors, smell and holidays!

    I love fall though, it’a my favorite!!!!!

  75. allie says:

    I’ve never tried a paint pot 🙂

  76. Carol says:

    I like pumpkin pie but, truth be told, I prefer sweet potato pie for the texture. For the past couple of years I’ve been using Cook’s Illustrated recipe for pumpkin pie which calls for a combination of one can of pumpkin puree and one can of candied yams. It’s like the best of two (pie) worlds. I usually find pumpkin pie filling a little too wet, so their recipe is perfect for me 🙂

  77. LOL @ have you ever baked pumpkin pie.


  78. Kathryn says:

    I’m doing my first ever Thanksgiving all by myself tomorrow, hopefully it goes well!

  79. I bake pumpkin pie every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. My family loves it!

  80. I’ve had a cold all week but the sun is peeking through (Seattle weather be damned!) Maybe today will be a better day?

  87. Marian says:

    It’s gorgeous here today…sunny and about 75F. I’ve baked many pumpkin pies. My family loves them but my waist line doesn’t. I have begun making pumpkin smoothies instead. I use 1/2c. of canned pumpkin (not pie mix) a cup of almond milk, a vanilla bean, frozen banana chunks, cinnamon, nutmeg and splenda. It’s delish!

  88. LuzMa says:

  98. Sara says:

I hope you give it a try and let us all know how it turns out – nothing feels better than baking something new! Such a cool accomplished feeling and El Hubz will definitely be happy too 😉 Have a great day!!!

  114. Melissa says:

    We’re doing one of my favorite fall things…apple picking! We’re from Los Angeles, so we drive about an hour east into the San Bernardino mountains where there’s this little town with lots of apple farms. My daughter and I love it!

  115. Step says:

    My brother and I always made different pies for thanksgiving and he’d use premade everything and remained happy and festive. I’d try to hand make crust and all the stuff, so it’d take about 10x as long and by the time the pie was done, I’d just resent it.

  116. Alison says:

    I’m so ready to bake some pumpkin goodies!

  117. Sandra says:

    It’s going to be a warm beautiful day here in southern California:).

  118. Kelsey says:

    What’s the weather like out there today?
    Sunny, beezy & cool.
    Have you ever baked a pumpkin pie (if you did, how did it turn out)?
    No, I hate pumpkin pie! Yuck.
    Do you have any plans this year for Thanksgiving or Halloween?
    Thanksgiving will probably be spent at husband’s grandma’s house, like most years. Not sure yet about Halloween – we might be moving in a couple of weeks & will therefore miss our friend’s yearly party. No ideas for costumes.
    What was your best hair/makeup/outfit this past week?
    I’ve been home sick this week, so my “best” day was yesterday because I actually washed my hair and put on clean sweats. 😛

  119. yajaira says:

  123. Emily says:

    I love baking pies and making the crust from scratch. This is the perfect time of year for pies too.

  124. Sabrina DeliaRose Fracchiolla says:

    So yesterday, I just got over having a tummy virus for the past two days.. I had cabin fever after only two days! Two of my friends and I went to the city (Manhattan) and we went to chipotle! I didnt think it was right if I had mexican food after having a tummy virus so I got soup at Au Bon Pain instead. But what I was most excited for was going to Sephora and MAC! I really wanted to get the NARS Orgasm Blush but it was $27 and I was determined to find something similar for a little less! The lady at Sephora was like “You didn’t hear this from me but at MAC they have a blush called ‘Peachykeen’ that is very similar for cheaper”. So i ran over to MAC and picked it up.. it’s great! I love it! Its not AS shimmery as the Nars but it’s still really great, and I’m so happy I bought it.. And That was my day:)

  125. Lindsay says:

    It’s absolutely gorgeous here in VA. It’s my favorite time of year. I love Mellowcreme Pumpkin candies and caramel apples!

    I went to Sephora this morning and splurged on the UD Book of Shadows set with the speakers and QR codes. The shadows were just so beautiful!

My little guy’s name is Turbo and he’s not a fashion expert like yours but oh so adorable.. and fussy! He never fails to let me know if he’s unhappy. Anyways, it’s almost Thanksgiving here in Canada, and I have a lot to be thankful for this year.. I hope you do too! Have a great and blessing-filled Thanksgiving!

    Nice and sunny in SF, CA. About to have breakfast at IHOP

  138. We don’t celebrate Halloween (Unless it’s the clubs/pubs/bars) or even Thanksgiving here 🙂 Would be awesome to try and experience it properly at least once, though for me any day when my family is together and we have gatherings it’s awesome as it is, even if it’s for no reason at all 😀

  139. Yes, every Thanksgiving, I make my own pumpkin pies…well, ever since a few years ago. 🙂 Before that, I didn’t know how easy it is. But I cheat a bit and use the pumpkin-pie filling and a frozen pie shell. Always turns out delicious. This year I’m tempted to make it from scratch, though.

    It’s finally sunny here, after too many days of rain. So happy! And pumpkin pie is one of my favorite fall desserts––I’ve been known to just make the filling and eat it like custard, yum.

  152. As a Dutch girl I’m going to have my first thanksgiving in New York this year! I’m very excited as my friends are preparing me for a big boozy feast 🙂

  165. Natalie Martinez says:

  174. gabby says:

    The closest to pumpkin pie that I have ever made is the pumpkin swirl cheesecake I make every Thanksgiving. My husband loves it. I personally like it better than straight up pumpkin pie. It’s a must if you love both pies, you get the best of both worlds!!!

  211. Lisa says:

    Thank you for such an amazing blog. I’m so excited about this giveaway!!!

  212. Marina says:

    I started baking pumpkin pies every fall two years ago when my family and I realized that we never loved any of the pumpkin pies we bought. Yep, we’re picky. Now we buy a pumpkin, cut it up, cook it, mash it, mix it with other ingredients and pre-buy crust ’cause we’re lazy. Then we cook it and it is DELICIOUS! I like extra cinnamon in my pie!

  213. Iris says:

    I’m skyping with my american family! I lived with them for à year and I Miss them à lot! And I’ll be very sad that I can’t participate in my fav holiday, Black friday!

    Omgsh that sign is super cute! Did you make the sign yourself? I can’t tell if you used Sharpie or not, but if so, I’m super jealous you can write like that! As for Breast Cancer Awareness, you know how Yoplait has pink ribbon lids? I always save them and register the code listed under each of them! Everyone should do that, too! It only takes literally like 10 seconds!

  264. Alyse says:

    It was nice to have a beautiful day to look outside at while studying my butt off indoors! Hoping for the same (weather that is) tomorrow!

  265. Stephanie Y says:

    It’s 80 degrees here today – this weird weather is making my skin very finicky.

  266. Zoey says:

    I’ve never been the hugest fan of pumpkin pie. I much prefer butternut squash to pumpkin flavor wise, so I guess the pumpkin shortage I keep hearing about won’t be as big a deal for me as the pumpkin-lovers of the world.. lol.

  267. Amber says:

    love this giveaway!! Something to brighten this rainy month!! Im fr the philippines. Hope i get to win this so i can give the prize to my mom-in-law in ohio. This will brighten her day!!

  283. AK says:

    Yay giveaway! It is sunny and warmish here in Charleston 🙂 Still cool enough to wear jeans and a long sleeved shirt, which is my jam. I am a cold weathered girl! I’m wearing NARS Outremer which I think is the best pigmented blue. It looks so primary blue in the pan, but once you get it on your lids, it almost has a purplish tinge to it! I love this color. It’s versatile enough to wear as a subtle cat eye, liner, or you could go out and do a full blown club look that Karen so beautifully demonstrated 😀

    Question: are winners contacted directly by email or do they have to constantly check at original blog entry to see if their name is announced? Just wondering!

  284. Mary O. says:

    The weather here in New York is gorgeous! It’s been in the sixties and sunny all day; A welcome change from the near-freezing temperatures the past few days

    I think it may be a rough winter- lots of squirrel activity in my neighborhood, I even had one jump on my windowsill this morning, they are definetly on the hunt for goodies. By the way, I saw a white squirrel in FL last week! I couldn’t believe it. I consider it pretty rare since I’ve seen a black squirrel only twice in all of the years I’ve lived in the northeast.

    Thanksgiving is the day before my birthday this year, so I’ll be spending the day with my family, eating my birthday pumpkin pie, and gearing up for my birthday on black friday, which is always an insane day for my deal-hunting family.

  399. Katie says:

    It is POURING in South Florida right now. We’re on flood watch until tomorrow night. At least its like 10 degrees cooler than it’s been all summer! I can’t wait for it to start cooling down and even getting kind of chilly (we only ever get KIND of chilly..not real chilly or cold, down here)!

  400. Nikki says:

  406. Heather says:

    Tonight, I saw an animal comedy circus act, with a bunch of rescue cats, dogs, a parrot, a few rats, some geese and a couple of pigeons. I was very impressed with the main guy’s ability to make 12 cats stay seated on their cute little stools on stage, and be very well behaved the whole time. Very very cute!

  407. Michelle says:

    I love Cali weather. One day hot, the next day raining and then warm again.

  410. Theresa says:

    Hey there! I’m really excited for Halloween ’cause next comes Thanksgiving, and then CHRISTMAS! I love cold weather and so, I love the fall/winter! My go-to fall color is always purple/plum and my look today reflected that with the purple Essence gel liner that you introduced me to (thanks)! Those liners are awesome, stay put ALL DAY, and the price is so right! =)

  411. Roxanna Harris says:

    Still waiting for “Fall” to kick in here in SoCal! 90 degrees in October is not cool! (no pun intended, haha!)

    Tonight, it’s rainy (love it) and chilly. It’s October and in Texas that means we may not see any cold weather for a little while longer. Le sigh

    I really really can’t wait for Fall weather to start! I want to see the colorful leaves on the ground and watch the wind play with them, swirling them around =D and the rains begin to fall and all you can hear is the beat of rain against your window while you sit on the couch with someone you love covered with a blanket and drink tea =)

  454. Eli says:

    Hi Karen! It’s Thanksgiving here! Me and Bf aren’t doing anyhing special; thanksgiving is not as important a holiday here as it is in the States I think.

    It’s raining in Houston, so it’s a good day for me! We really got soaked. I just got back from having dinner with my baby cousin; she’s two now and it’s been about a year since I’ve seen her. The thing that’s grown most about her is her hair. She’s got a mullet going on with these unruly curls, lol.
