Win a $50 Sephora eGift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog

I wish I could learn new things by osmosis (technically, diffusion) — you know, where you could just touch a how-to book to your forehead or sleep with it under your pillow and just magically memorize the whole thing.


That sure would be convenient, wouldn’t it? Waking up the next morning and having El Hub ask me, “How did you sleep?” and me saying, “Eu dormi fantÑstico!”

I got a couple of new books about drawing last week by a cartoonist I like named Ben Caldwell. His style is very modern Disney and the books are filled with drawing exercises, which I do follow, some of them, but only as many as I can with the time.

Just one of those things I wish I had more time for… That and figuring out inventive new ways to annoy Tabs. πŸ™‚ You know how it is. Too many interests, too little time.

The holiday weekend activities continue today. I’m taking pics of my BFF’s son’s christening this afternoon, so I’m excited about that, but also a little nervous. I don’t want to step on any toes, literally. Or knock anything over. It’s in a church, so there will be plenty of stuff to accidentally bump. Oh, and open flames…

I hope you’re having a good weekend. I think we should start ours here with another giveaway. How does Sephora sound?

Yup, it’s that time again. Ready to go in 1-2-3…

    But… wouldn’t it be cool if you could do ALL of your holiday shopping without ever stepping foot into a store? That’s my goal this year.

  27. Janet says:

    How funny you asked about victory rolls. I just a convo about them w/a friend. Personally, I love anything and everything related to 40’s beauty and fashion. The clothes and the hair were just so sexy without being vulgar. I definitely think I was born in the wrong era.

  33. Melissa says:

    I would love to learn a foreign language by osmosis, French or Spanish. I love all of the candy cane flavored treats this time of year, loving Dairy Queens Candy Cane blizzard. The only place I’ve bought discounted beauty products is a CCO store at an outlet mall. I’ve bought clothes online but usually they wind up as epic fails.

  34. Lydia says:

    If I could learn anything by Osmosis I would make myself really good at math.

  35. Katherine says:

    My favorite seasonal thing is Gingerbread Coffee from Trader Joe’s! It makes the cold mornings so much better.

  36. Simona says:

    In this time of the year I love to eat baked pumpkin and to drink boiled (very very hot) wine,to warm up myself,because outside it’s very cold,actually it’s snowing .:) I know that any of us would be very happy if we could learn by osmosis,but I question myself,would I be more happy?I think that the answer is no,if you can’t forget something you’re not happy.But,sometimes I’d really wish to learn something very quickly,especially when I have the next day an exam (so,the answer is that I’d love to learn by osmosis,anything about law-because I’m at a law school).Good luck everyone!

    If I were home, I would have to say boiled custard is my favorite holiday food. It is apparently a southern thing, since I haven’t seen it since I moved to Boston (which is probably a blessing in disguise, since the stuff is incredibly fattening).

  44. Neha says:

    My favorite site to buy discounted beauty items has definitely been . I bought 3 NARS blushes for $20 each..OMG , these are my first NARS blushes…I waited for so long..but finally, I got the best of the lot and that too at such a price….they are Exhibit A, Taj Mahal and Cactus Flower…totally in love. Also, I got a great deal on, Mary & Betty Lou Manizers (full size) for $28 total…ain’t wow?


  45. hazakaza says:

    Is it possible to get sick of turkey? Because I think I am. Not just turkey, actually, but all the traditional thanksgiving herbs–sage and rosemary and thyme and garlic and the caramelized flavors produced by the malliard reaction that occurs when roasting. I just want a bowl of fresh fruit and maybe some yogurt!

  46. Danielle says:

    I would love to learn French by osmosis. I just love the way it sounds when it’s spoken. I love catching sales at Sephora!!! It has become my new favorite makeup store.

  65. Heather says:

    My husband and I spent this week in Seattle, and had Thanksgiving with my brother. Unfortunately, neither one of them will eat pumpkin pie, which I really look forward to eating this time of year, and I couldn’t justify making or buying a whole pie just for me. So I think I’ll have to hunt down a slice of pie somewhere and some point this weekend.

  66. quimerula says:

    So much to do, so little time!

  67. ShannonW says:

    I changed my sign-in name because there was already a Shannon. I have 12 days left in Cape Town before I head back to the US! (where obviously I need to stock up on all the makeup I couldn’t get in South Africa. Pick me!)

    I would love to learn Spanish by osmosis. Sadly, I DID take Spanish classes in college, however most of the grammar has escaped me. My boyfriend is from Puerto Rico, so he speaks fluent Spanish.

    i also love honey ham, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and the crescent rolls- real bakery crescents warmed up with butter– mmmmmmmm πŸ™‚

  155. Jenny says:

    C’mon, Karen! Don’t you have a degree in Biology? You should know better than to throw around the word “osmosis” like that. =)

    But, if I could learn anything, say, instantly, I guess it would have to be… discipline. You can learn everything else if you already have discipline up your sleeve. It’s super corny, but that’s the best I could come up with.

  156. Lauren says:

    Your blog has reintroduced me to blush, and made me think again about bronzer! Thanks for introducing me to more makeup πŸ™‚

Then I was convinced by the NARS counter guy to try Taos blush… We’ll see how that goes!!! Thanks for all your posts & reviews =)

  182. Quinctia says:

    If I could learn bu osmosis, one would think I’d know a few more languages by now! I’ve exposed myself to quite a few different languages through media. I learned Latin in high school, and I know some basic Spanish–I can ask for the bathroom, how much something costs, and can talk about food. But I’ve enjoyed plenty of media in languages besides those two.

  191. Yao says:

    Pumpkin pie is def my favorite fall foodstuff. And I don’t really eat it the rest of the year.

  192. I wish I could learn foreign languages by osmosis – Spanish, French and German. I want some cookies & cream ice cream.

  193. Kelsey says:

    LetÒ€ℒs say you could learn anything by osmosis Ò€” what would you want to learn?
    I’d love to learn a really difficult language like Welsh or Klingon.

    WhatÒ€ℒs your favorite food from this time of year?
    I really find myself craving comfort foods when the weather gets colder; anything starchy and/or creamy.

    WhatÒ€ℒs your favorite place to buy discounted beauty products?
    Big Lots or Dollar Tree.

    Have you ever purchased clothing online?
    I do this more often than I buy clothes in the store.

    Hair question: how do you feel about victory rolls?
    Pretty, but not very practical for every day life.

  194. Grace says:

    Celebrating Thanksgiving today with my family!

  195. Savannah says:

    I made the most amazing dessert for Thanksgiving- an old Neapolitan specialty I learned while living there: A “Grain-Ricotta” cake, flavored with orange rind& orange-flower water, baked in a “Pasta Frola” cookie crust! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, Karen!

  197. LauraA says:

    My favorite food around the holidays is stuffing of any kind: homemade, trashy, from-a-box, whatever.

    I love victory rolls. They’re a wonderfully sleek, stylized, generally easy thing to do once you get the hang of it.

    Thank you for another great giveaway opportunity, Karen. πŸ™‚

  199. Diana says:

    Black Friday was the most stressful thing I have ever been through and I am never going through that Forever 21 checkout line again. But on a brighter note, loving the Smashbox ligloss set I bought. It was about $23, and at retail price it would have been $96! I am currently wearing “It Girl”.

  200. Kylee says:

    i <3 green bean casserole!

  201. Nora says:

    i love pumpkin pie
    like a lot

  202. Marina says:

    My parents never taught me and I never learned on my own how to swallow a pill. On Thanksgiving with my family I had an allergic reaction and needed to swallow a pill. My aunt bribed me by saying “If you swallow this I will get you any lipgloss and eyeshadow from Sephora.”. MOTIVATION is key to anything! I swallowed the thing on the first try. So now she owes me those. I guess I don’t need this gift certificate then…but I sure would like it. Sorry that was random!

  203. Naomi says:

    My favorite place to buy discounted makeup is at,, and at CCOs they carry some products in the permanent line of the brands they carry.

  246. jessica davis says:

    My favorite food from this time of year is one of my familys tradional “Lithuanian Bacon Buns” they are the most scrumptious, heavenly melt in you mouth buns! Once you have one you can stop! I made a batch on thanksgiving and they are all gone now. My little brother didn’t get any and he’s not happy! So I will have to make more. Poor lil brother missed out cuz he had to work thanksgiving night an day after. I wish everyone had a chance to try these!

  247. Mina says:

    Karen – I wanna win!!

  248. Zoey says:

    I’m never able to buy clothes online because I’m an odd size. No matter how careful I am to get as many possible measurements as I can, you just can’t tell what will fit (at least for me) until you try it on. So I just tend to go into the stores and try things on… old-school style πŸ˜›

  249. Step says:

  252. Happy Day-After-Thanksgiving – hope you all survived the madness. I wish I could just be programmed once with about 6 different languages, like a file you upload. I studied Italian for about 3 months once, and never became fluent, but I once dreamt I was speaking it perfectly, and I was! Goes to show that subconciously we take in more than we realize. Still can’t speak it awake though:)

    Hair question: how do you feel about victory rolls? Ò€” Um not feeling it.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  266. Stephpolk82 says:

    I feel like I’m forever on the search for that perfect, my lips but better shade. In particular, I want a sheer, hydrating lipstick that can be applied without a mirror. I’ve found a great MLBB lipgloss (MAC Deelight) and would like a lipstick equivalent, but maybe something peachier or pinker. Any ideas?

  331. Megan says:

    I wore victory rolls as part of my halloween costume. They are very cute, but too high maintenance for my every day. My favorite food from this time of year is probably potatoes au gratin or pecan pie. If I could learn anything by osmosis I would learn how to be more organized and disciplined in my daily life. And I always get my moisturizer for a steal from Ebay – but often in mini or small sizes.

    Thanksgiving was a wonderful weekend this year! I was actually homesick once I got back to school, which is ironic because last year, I couldn’t wait to get away from being home.

I hope your Thanksgiving holiday was as merry and blessed as mine was!
