Win a $50 Sephora eGift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog
Okay, I’m so full right now it’s not even funny… I just got back from THE BEST little breakfast place here in Novato called Marvin’s. El Hub and I went, and whenever we go there, I always get The Farmers’ Benedict (with the hollandaise on the side). Today I just about cleaned my plate, so now I’m uncomfortably full.

You know that feeling when you’re so full that even undoing the top button of your pants doesn’t help? Hello! That’s me right now.


How are things in your neck of the woods? I hope your weekend got off to a good start. I don’t have a whole lot going on today, which is nice. I promised Tabs I’d take him for a nice, long walk, but after that my calendar’s wide open. ๐Ÿ™‚

While you’re here, take a moment to enter both of this weekend’s ongoing giveaways. After entering this one, click over to The 2011 Breast Cancer Awareness Month Sign Project and Giveaway. The prize for that one is a whopping $1,126 in makeup from MAC, Clinique, Make Up For Ever, Estรƒยฉe Lauder and Bobbi Brown (click here for the full details).

With that said, I think you know what time it is. It’s…

    Your cat tabs is so cute and reminds me of my cat I used to have, Nala. She looked just like tabs! I had her for almost 13 years until one day a cat picked a fight with her and she had a nasty infection from a scratch the cat gave her. I took her to the vet and it turns out that the cat gave Nala feline HIV and had to be put asleep on the spot ๐Ÿ™ it’s been a year since that happened but I miss her everyday! Now I have two dogs, but I’ll always have Nala in my heart.

  34. Heather says:

    Fav breakfast food? Fried eggs, over medium, with crispy hash browns and toast, with a nice coating of salt and pepper and hot sauce and plenty of butter for the toast. Pancakes on the side.

Here’s to a year full of promise and potential…full speed ahead!!

  122. Zeadelle says:

    Hey Karen,
    I’ll just share a common kitchen ingredient I use for my hair – mayonnaise. Trust me it works wonders. But if your is oily, I dont recommend you do this.
    Before I take a bath, I apply a teaspoon of plain mayo, add more for longer hair, mine’s shoulder length, use plain mayonnaise, no pickles, tuna, chicken, ham, etc.
    Massage for a minute just like shampoo. I know it feels greasy and smells sour. Cover with showercap and leave for an hour or longer. I watch tv or apply facial mask while waiting for it.
    Now, rinse properly, I mean it. If you don’t, your hair would super greasy.
    Then shampoo your hair to remove those funky sour smell. You might apply conditioner as well, even though mayo is healthy, conditioner makes my hair super soft. Dry your hair, you’ll notice your hair is shinier amd softer.
    I do this every other day, I dont know which is better, to use mayo before or after shampooing so I do both. For example, i applied mayo today beforw I shampoo, the other day I’ll apply mayo after i shampoo and then apply conditioner.

    Thanks for taking time to read this, I know its freakin long. Have a great day ahead!

  123. DalaLuz says:

    I actually hate going to the hairdressers, especially if they are the talkative kind… LOL

  124. Gina G says:

    I cut about an inch off my hair last night. I have never had my hair cut in a salon. My dad always cut my hair growing up, and now I just do it myself.

  125. Let says:

    My last haircut is around 2 weeks ago. Now my hair is already quite long again. Ha ๐Ÿ˜€

  126. Liz says:

    the fanciest restaurant I’ve been to is probably this rotating restaurant at the top of this observatory. it makes one turn every hour and the view is gorgeous. I think DIY products are great – especially things like sugar scrubs, which can easily be made from stuff you have in your kitchen. I haven’t had a haircut in about half a year!

  127. Amy says:

    I haven’t gotten a hair cut in…I don’t even know how long. Close to a year, I think. Not out of any desire to grow my hair long, I’ve just been too busy/lazy/poor to schedule a cut!

  128. Andrea Collins says:

    Oatmeal or pancakes!

  129. Krista says:

    I love bagels! Especially asiago bagels from Panera.

  221. Annie says:

    I haven’t had a haircut in about two months, which wouldn’t be an issue… except that it was a pixie cut. And now it’s kind of a pixie ‘fro. What’s a girl to do (other than getting a haircut)?

  222. PS says:

    Happy Saturday! Favorite breakfast is bacon, grits & overeasy eggs with CRISPY hashbrowns.

    To those of you that mentioned shrimp & grits… um how do you fit it? I NEVER heard of shrimp & gritts. ๐Ÿ™‚

  223. Joanna says:

    My favorite breakfast food would have to be pancakes or french toast (with tons of fruit on the top)! I also enjoy reading your beauty blog…I learn something new every time… and your kitty, Tabs, is so very cute! I had a cat once, but I had to give it away when I was younger because of allergies :”-( Thanks!

  224. Lori says:

    My favorite breakfast is biscuits and cream gravy with sausage in it. Hashbrowns can go with it but no eggs, unfortunately…they can make me sick.

  225. beckie says:

    I went to a fun neighborhood Girls Night Out Pamper Party this summer. Most of the “pampering” products used were homemade from ‘common’ kitchen ingredients. I admit I was dubious but thought, “hey it’ll be fun and there will be yummy treats”. I was pleasantly surprised by one treatment masque. Mix equal parts of oatmeal, plain yogurt (live culture), fresh cucumber, and apple mint leaves (from the hostess’ kitchen garden herb bed). Blend well {in a good blender}. Apply to dampened face, let dry, rinse well. Pretty impressive.

  226. Dede Kotler says:

    LOVING Nars Holiday Collection!

    My favorite breakfast is a cup of hazlenut coffee & a baguette w/butter. Thanks for the giveaway.

  232. Tammy says:

    My favorite breakfast is bacon, egg & cheese on a roll. I don’t like eggs but this is the only way I’ll eat them!

  233. Aimey says:

    I’ve always been a fan of IHOP, whether for breakfast food or even a late snack. But recently, I visited one where my boyfriend and I went for one of our first dates, and it will definitely be hard for me to visit that IHOP again, or visit another IHOP without being hesitant about it first. There must’ve been something in the pipes, but the entire place smelled like the area in my college dining hall where students placed their used utensils, dishes, and cups–like a gigantic sink. My boyfriend and I seriously lost our appetites. What a shame. I’ve never heard of such a “bad” IHOP until now. Maybe I should stick to fancy places as well . . .

  234. Meghan says:

    My favorite breakfast food is definitely pancakes, particularly pumpkin pancakes this time of year.

  235. Jenifer says:

    Home fries, corn beef hash, rye toast and eggs over easy!

  236. Maria says:

    I could use this right about now!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  237. Kelly says:

    Along time ago my mom told me egg whites are good for your skin, so I whipped some up and slathered them on my face. It made my skin so tight and it smelled horrible. I recommend them for breakfast instead.

  238. Cornelia says:

    My favorite breakfast food is lunch. ๐Ÿ˜›

  239. Jaime says:

    My all-time favorite breakfast meal is Eggs Benedict…but when I’m in Maui at the Kihei Cafe, I have to get the fried rice with fried egg on top!

  240. onegreatsmile says:

    Haircut?? I have not had one since MAY!! First my hairdresser had an emergency Knee replacement and just as she was about to go back to work had another mishap setting her back 6 weeks, then I had to move out of the area unexpectedly. I have not met any new chicks yet, so if I can’t see a style I like, I can’t ask, “WHo’s your stylist?” I’m dying!!!! I am an every-6-weeks kinda girl and this is a serious problem!! Too bad Sephora doesn’t do hair – that’s only ULTA!!

  241. Montana Moore says:

    I love pancakes. Aren’t they just heavenly? They are also one of the foods that you can enjoy eating ANY time of the day or night.

    I think it’s been 6 months since I got my hair cut! Yikes!

  250. Soo says:

    I think DIY beauty products can be just as good as product buys (ie. sugar scrubs, etc.) but I’m honestly too lazy to make them. the only thing I use that could be considered DIY is when I wash brushes with olive oil and liquid detergent.

  271. Nicki says:

    I do a lot of DIY products for deep conditioning my hair. My fave right now is honey and olive oil.

    my last hair cut was like 3 or 4 years ago! its getting pretty bad but i just cant commit to a style. im not sure how much i want chopped off but the real thing thats holding me back is i dont know where i want my long bangs to end (chin lips etc.) and how thick i want them to be.

  274. P says:

    I love my iPhone 4S

During high school, all of my friends wanted to hold sleep-overs at my house because my dad would make us pancakes in the morning!

  296. Yume says:

    My hair and I are very much connected. Alas, the cut had to be made. My hair is so thick that it can be quite cumbersome at times. I took off about 4 inches so it is now just below my shoulders. I feel lighter because I also tossed in some layers. I love it. Layers do wonders.

  308. Kate & Zena says:

    My last hair cut was in September and the girl who did it did a sh***y job. I had asked for a dusting, a bang trim, and to have “medium length, face framing layers put in WITHOUT A RAZOR.” (and yes, I showed her. I’m so insanely picky.) I stressed the no razor thing because a razor does really bad things to my fine and fragile hair; my hair snaps and breaks off when it meets a razor. Well, she took two inches off (which is not a dusting by any means) and cut in heavy and short layers to my front with a razor. My hair looked like a hot mess when I left. I’ve been deep conditioning my hair to mask the damage (and prevent even more) and growing it out so when I go to my regular stylist (who is a saint), my hair isn’t super short. I still have about another week or two before I can go to my stylist. My hair is driving me mad. It looks sooooooooooooooo bad!

    Here’s a tip to all you ladies: If you have fine hair, run away if you see your hairstylist bringing a razor to it to cut in layers. Screaming optional.

  309. Nicole O. says:

    I’m totally for DIY beauty products. I’ve made a honey+sugar+olive oil scrub before & it’s great for exfoliating. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My favorite breakfast is french toast (made by my mom, of course) with bacon and hot chocolate! Mmm.

  363. Holly says:

    I am feeling exactly how you described, and proud of it! I just cooked me and my boo a yummy dinner. I tried a new recipe called a ‘taco ring’. You should deff google it and give it a try! And of course I had to sautee some jalapeรƒยฑos for his spicy fetish

    I have an urge to go on a shopping spree!

  365. Lynerd says:

    I ordered online Benefit Hoola online and I can’t wait to try it!

  369. Christina says:

    I love diy skincare. I’m a huge fan of (brace yourself) toilet paper and egg whites. Its like a biore strip…but for the rest of your face. It tightens pores, smooths skin and refines skin texture. Its not as harsh as a nose strip and you can use it virtually anywhere else. ๐Ÿ™‚

  370. Pam says:

    My favorite breakfast is pancakes and bacon.

    My husband surprised me with breakfast this morning! French toast, bacon, hash browns…yum!

  375. Jaymie says:

    I think it’s been about 6 months since my last haircut. I’m trying to grow out my hair and the horrible cut I got. My last haircut was the worst I’ve ever had and now I’m stuck growing out these horrible layers that are pretty much razored so they are all different lengths which make it really difficult to grow out. It makes my hair look frizzy and dry. I hate it! And I’m losing patience waiting for my hair to grow ๐Ÿ™ I just want my long hair.

  376. layla says:

    my little girl had her first haircut yesterday! she’s 6 months old and had her hair down to the bottom of her neck! it looked quite straggly though and she was in dire need of a haircut! ๐Ÿ™‚

  380. Jen says:

    Every now and then I read an article about DIY beauty products, and every time I think, “No way.” I can only imagine what my hair or face might smell like afterwards. And the mess!

  391. peach_ says:

    I love, love, LOVE eggs benedict as well! I love eggs during breakfast in general, but that is one of the best ways to eat it. I love how the egg yolk drizzles down on to the muffin…mmmm.

  392. Joy says:

    Hum…I don’t have one favorite breakfast food. It tends to be my favorite meal of the day. I do love dipping wheat toast into the yolk of over-medium eggs along with crispy bacon and a large glass of cranberry juice. That’s my fall back meal when I’m not craving something specific nor am I at a restaurant with another interesting sounding dish.

  393. BB says:

  399. BeckBeck says:

    I just got a trim the last week of September, and then my mom trimmed my front layer (it’s not really bangs) last weekend. My mom’s a hairdresser from way back, but we live in different states now so she doesn’t work on me regularly anymore. I actually might move up my next appointment – I grew my hair out long for my wedding, and now that that’s over, I feel like I’ve got a small animal on my head because it hasn’t been this long in 10 years and I have a LOT of hair.

  400. Lili says:

    My last haircut was in the beginning of September… I should probably get it cut soon.

  401. Libby says:

    My favorite breakfast place of all time is in Key Largo, FL. We got a recommendation from some locals and it was the best (and cheapest) meal we had in the Keys. If you’re ever in the Keys go to Dale’s Diner. So good!

    I thought you would get a kick out of this: last night my cat was making a lot of scuffling noises on the floor below the bed. When I sat up to see what he was doing, he had his face jammed in his catnip-filled mouse. He noticed me watching and immediately dropped the mouse, all “Whatchoo lookin’ at, woman?” He acts like a person so much of the time that it’s really funny to catch him acting like a cat.

    Thanks for the giveaways! You awesome, as always ๐Ÿ™‚

A little strange, perhaps, but acceptable as long as he keeps those home fries comin’!

    The fanciest restaurant I’ve ever been to is one that I didn’t actually eat at. I went to visit the kitchen in the Mansion at Turtle Creek in Dallas when I was maybe 10. The guys in the kitchen were explaining to me that they could make anything at anytime for people saying in the hotel part. So I asked them if they could make squid ink ice cream and they all got excited and said “she watches Iron Chef!” (which had a squid episode featuring squid ink ice cream) It was hilarious.
