A Makeup and Beauty Blog Giveaway!

Rise and shine, morning glory! πŸ™‚ I hope you had a wonderful week. No complaints out here. Last night I even spent a little time shopping — online, for things to help me with one of my New Year’s resolutions.


Yup, I’m still on a mission to stop dressing like a 15-year-old skater boy (a hard habit to break, apparently), and I found a couple of pricey possibilities at Anthropologie.

What do ya think of this romper and trench?

Leifsdottir Scattered Wing Romper on the left ($168) and Tulip-Hem Trench on the right ($298)

Cute, yeah? I really love the romper, but I don’t know… Sometimes I wonder if things like rompers have an upper age limit that I might have passed.

I also love the jacket, but I wish it came in a different color. I’d have this one covered in makeup and cat hair in about a hot minute.

OOH! I came across a new designer (well, new to me) on the Nordstrom site that I wanted to ask you about. Are you familiar with Presley Skye? She (he?) has these soft, flowy dresses in colorful, springy prints (can you tell I’m ready for spring?).

Presley Skye Silk Kimono Sleeve Faux Wrap Dress on the left ($138) and Print CrΓƒΒͺpe de Chine Dress ($138) on the right

Those dresses look so comfy, and if I’m smiling this much just looking at pictures of ’em, I can only imagine what wearing one would do to me.

Is it spring yet?

No? Well, at least it’s giveaway time. πŸ™‚

  23. Alison says:

    Normally, I’d say hell to the no on rompers, but that one actually looks very sophisticated.

  24. Tania says:

    I haven’t worn a romper since I was in grade school. I don’t think I will be wearing one soon. However, I do love the fabric!!

    I heart Anthropologie! I love girly, vintagy clothes and this store always has the most amazing, unique pieces. My hubs calls it “The Closet”. Have a great weekend! πŸ˜‰

  37. Y. says:

    what a crazyyy week!!! but i really do like that kimono dress!

  38. mn says:

    The romper is cut but how does one manage to make it to the bathroom?
    I’m more of a coat gal- when you live in colder climates you can’t have enough- although I agree with you, a white coat/trench of any type is just asking for trouble.

  39. Heather says:

    Rompers are adorable, but I hate the idea of completely undressing every time I have to pee. Crass, but true!

  40. Saddy says:

    ooh, I love that Scattered Wing romper!!
    Thanks for the giveaway, Karen.

  42. carina says:

    The rompers are super cute!

  43. Mindy says:

    Rompers are horrible!

  44. Jenn says:

    I think rompers can be super cute on some body types. Just not mine! Lol! I love the print on that romper though, almost as much as I love Sephora!!

  45. vanessa says:

    omg that romper is bananas!!! its a little long, so perfect for our age group πŸ™‚

  46. Kristina says:

    I love rompers but I find it hard to find ones that fit both the bottom and the top well πŸ™

  47. Liz Foust says:

    Super cute trench! And I love the romper with tights!

  48. iryna says:

    I think you should go for the romper, its so cute and age appropriate in my opninion.

  49. JaNelle says:

    I wish I could wear rompers…I think it makes my legs look stumpier lol

  50. kirsten says:

    I love your giveaways! πŸ™‚

  51. katie says:

    rompers are adorable.. but i have a long torso, so if i even try it… well.. let’s just say a certain desert animals foot might make an appearance.

  52. NeenaJ says:

    I had a navy blue polka dot romper that I loved. But, that was senior year of high school. I don’t think I could pull it off now!

  53. Diana J says:

    That is a cute romper! I can’t pull them off =( they never seem to fit right. I think it’s because I’m tall. That’s why I love makeup if you find something you love and that works for you, you’ll never be too big or small for it.

  54. Agata says:

    The romper is really pretty! Thanks for another giveaway!

  55. Christin says:

    Cuuuute πŸ˜€

  56. I’m loving the Tulip-Hem Trench!!! that coat is drop dead gorgeous!!!

    I cant do a pushup but I’m working on it!! I go to the gym everyday now, hopefully ill be able to do a pull up someday soon! πŸ™‚

  57. I want to scoff at rompers, but I kind of want to live the kind of life where I lounge around in them poolside all day….

    I love those dresses though – going to have to go check them out now!

  59. Ellen says:

    I love that romper! I think there’s less of an age limitt than a weight limit- Karen, you could totally pull it off but I never could.

  60. Carolyn says:

    love! a white trench- so chic

  61. DalaLuz says:

    I don’t know about rompers and jump suits, being overweight myself for me it’s a major pass, but if the challenge suits, go rock it! Love the color/pattern!

  62. Melodyy says:

    I love rompers. so easy because you don’t need to think about a top AND bottom!

  63. Mariee says:

  71. Cindy G says:

    I too dress like a 15-year old skater boy, haha! I’m always in hoodies, tank tops, jeans, and either my converse sneakers or a pair of flats.

    The one piece of makeup I have and never use is lip glossΓ’β‚¬β€œ I have a few in my makeup collection, but I never wear them. I am more of a tinted lip balm kind of girl, my fave being Clinique’s Chubby Stick in Graped Up.

  72. Sara P. says:

    I am TERRIFIED of rompers. I can’t imagine ever feeling comfortable wearing one!

  73. Stephanie says:

    I love those dresses!
    Wish I could pull off a romper..just don’t love the look on me, but love it on others.

    I think rompers are cute those who can actually pull it off. I feel like most people can’t but still wear them.

  80. Stephanie R says:

    The trench and the dresses, yes. The romper? Probably not. I’d love to be working and wearing those dresses though. Gorgeous!

  81. colleen b says:

    Twinkies! πŸ™‚

  82. Erin says:

    That romper is BEYOND cute. I say go for it!

  83. Katlyn says:

    I love the trench! I would get it in any and every color! Not sure about the romper but I love the fabric pattern. If you’re looking for spring clothes, I love Free People’s spring collection!

  84. Joy says:

    Pink snowballs.

  85. sy says:

    I love the dresses, and the trench is cute too. I personally find rompers uncomfortable (taking them off in the bathroom is annoying!) and they make my legs look stumpy, but if you can rock it, you should definitely go for it – it’s a really cute piece. πŸ™‚

  86. Kayla says:

    love that color purple on the romper… also one of my favorite colors to line eyes with!

  87. Karen Ramirez says:

    I love the pink dress in the photo above.

  95. Emily says:

  96. Heidi says:

  97. Jennifer powell says:

  98. claire says:

    I love that romper! The flowing spring dresses are lovely as well πŸ™‚

  99. Katrina says:

    Adorable choices Karen! You have a good eye! I love Anthropology. Just wish they 1. had bigger sizes and 2. were a little cheaper! In a perfect world I guess….

  100. Marian says:

    There have been many drugstore items that I’m really impressed with lately. The Revlon Colorburst lip butters have been a staple lately. I’m loving the Maybelline tatoo cream eyeshadows and gel liners too. I may just stop shopping high end.

  101. Let says:

    I like rompers that look like dresses from afar. I hate the ones that have obvious waistbands haha πŸ™‚

  104. Melissa says:

    Just got paid and hitting up Ulta later. This could be dangerous!

  105. Wendy says:

    I’m 5 feet exactly and don’t think rompers would fit me appropriately unless I get them tailored.

  106. Caitlin says:

    I like rompers, but I’m always afraid of the dreaded “Romper Wedgie”. Thats just no good.

  107. Krista says:

    I love rompers on babies.

  108. Marrinda says:

    That romper is SO cute. I don’t wear them, afraid I can’t pull it off, but I might give it a try. You should, too.

  113. Christy says:

    Love thinking about spring weather clothes. Bought a romper on sale this winter and can’t wear it yet!!

  114. Christina8717 says:

  116. Tracy says:

    This is a great giveaway. Rompers are my fave, it’s an entire outfit in one. I love especially the one you featured. Thanks!

  117. Shana says:

    I could never wear a romper, LOL

  118. Karen F says:

    I love the look of rompers, I just don’t think I could pull it off!

  119. Jennifer says:

    I also went shopping yesterday! I ended up spending 183$ for 6 shirts! I’ve never spent so much money in one store before! But it felt great, I really had an awful week and needed some cheering up. Have a wonderful weekend, Karen! <3!/jennibunnie/status/168410942227488768

  120. Sandra says:

    Rompers are extremely cute but when it comes to using the restroom it can get a little difficult because you have to undress.

  121. Jenny says:

    Not a fan of the jumper/onesie thing, but I do love that blue dress! Wow. I’m not a girly girl, but I’d wear that!

  122. Missy M says:

    I appreciate a romper on bodytypes other than mine!

  123. Erin says:

    I like the romper and think you can rock it. It’s sweet but also sophisticated. A definite purchase!

  124. Dianna Trujillo says:

    Uy, how fun shopping I can’t wait to see the romper on you!

  125. Courtney says:

    I love that white trench! I’m not a romper girl myself though. Although I also work a corporate job…and I like to have clothes that I can dress up for work or dress down for weekend. I don’t have many that can’t be used for both, and a romper would definitely not be able to be used for work. πŸ™‚

  126. Sophie says:

    Twinkies AND Snowballs!!!!

  127. Julie Urbain says:

    I like the trench but it would be better in black.

  133. Caroline says:

    I’m eyeing those same dresses! I like the look of rompers but my only thing with them is going to the bathroom. Not cool about being completely undressed to pee, especially if I had to use a public restroom. Just saying.

  134. Jana Ricketts says:

    I like lipglosses that tingle! Very refreshing :]

  135. Nina says:

    ive been on all day yesterday looking for a dress! thank you for the tips above! πŸ™‚

  136. Mimsy says:

    I think rompers are adorable and look best on tall, slender, leggy girls. The only issue I have with them is you basically have to take the whole thing off if you need to use the restroom. They’re too impractical for me and I think I’m getting a little too old for them now. Love them on younger ladies though.

  137. Ashley Marie says:

    i am definitely a twinkie girl!

  138. Ana says:

    Not really into rompers. They look too much like onesies! Elise, I agree about buxom. The only thing is that I have to wear some lip balm underneath and not purse my lips too much so my lips don’t get chapped.

    Hi Karen, this is my first time commenting on your blog. I really like the jacket, although I agree with you that I would rather it be in a different color (white clothing makes me paranoid). Thank you for the giveaway!

  165. Jasmine says:

    I don’t know if I would ever wear one, but rompers are growing on me. I do love the print on the one featured here!

  166. Megan says:

    I love the print of that romper and if it came in a blouse then def! But I think rompers are tough for most people to pull off. I am thinking ahead to spring though. Just got the nars Mexican rose lip gloss pencil and I love it! Bright but wearable. Look forward to wearing all spring/summer.

  167. Jenn says:

    I, for one, *love* tingly lipglosses, because it makes me feel and think that it’s plumping up my lips!

  168. Mandy says:

    I love Sephora! It’s my birthday this coming up Saturday and I can do some damage there. πŸ™‚

  171. Jody says:

    I kind of like the look of rompers -its really cute, but I find it really impractical. Imagine trying to get out of that thing to pee!

  172. Nikki says:

    The romper is cute, and since it’s longer than most and has a more sophisticated cut to it, no worries about age limit. Now if it had super tiny “poom-poom” shorts, that would be an age(and decency) issue.

  173. Lili says:

    I love rompers!

  174. Julie says:

    Those dresses from Nordstrom look gorgeous–especially the one on the left! And I definitely think you can rock a romper! I’m in my mid/late twenties and I have a romper! Go for it!

    I got a really cute coral romper from Express last summer! It will be my go to piece for the pool/beach this year!

  176. Even when I was young and in shape I couldn’t do a push up. I hate doing sit ups. I don’t do floor exercises at all. I prefer doing all my exercises standing up–cardio.

    I thought I HATED rompers, but I think that’s because I was seeing the same forever21 rompers on every girl. I think styled properly (or even for lazy easy days) with maybe a blazer and some wedges they can be great πŸ™‚

  203. Becca says:

    Oh I love the trench!! AND that dress to the right-it is absolutely gorgeous! I don’t even wear dresses but I feel like I HAVE to have that one! So cute! Not so sure about the romper though. They can sometimes be cute-but I’m not really digging the long-sleeved romper…but of course, that’s just my personal opinion πŸ™‚

  204. Kimmyfox says:

    I love a well-made romper. I think they can make your legs look great and they can do casual and cocktail. I abhor tingly glosses! I curse Bare Essentials every time I wear one of their Buxom glosses. Standing in a cold wind while wearing one of those glosses is downright painful!

  205. Sabrina says:

    The print on the romper in great! But if you’re looking for some more cute (a little cheaper!) pieces, check out the clothes by Aqua on the Bloomingdales website.

  206. Tiffanie says:

    I agree with the romper age limit! Then again, I’m not a fan of rompers…

    I bought one chambray romper with a tie at the waist during the summer last year, wore it once, felt like a potato, and never wore it again! But then again I think my body type just isn’t suited for rompers or high waisted jeans! But you can rock it! πŸ™‚

  212. Mallory says:

    Love that romper! If there’s an upper age limit, you definitely haven’t reached it yet!

  213. Melessa says:

    i think rompers are cute. gotta be the shorts though, i do not enjoy the pant versions. those dresses are cute, not crazy about the patterns, but the silhouettes are nice.
    and twinkies ALL the way. i also do not enjoy coconut.

  214. Stephanie Fabian says:

    I’m too fat for rompers πŸ™

  215. Michaela says:

    I think rompers are best left to those whose ages number in the single digits. Overalls too. There’s something about an adult in overalls that makes them look like a bizarrely overgrown toddler.

    I tried 2 tingling lip glosses today– Buxom’s Big & Healthy and Smashbox’s O-gloss. Buxom’s was better, hands-down! It tingled in a pleasant, subtle way, and worked so well that even though the gloss was in a very pale nude, my lips pinked up nicely beneath it. The O-gloss tingled more powerfully, to the point of discomfort, and didn’t pink me up at all. Bleh.

  216. Libby says:

    I love that coat. Anthropologie has the cutest stuff, that I can’t afford!

  217. Halifax says:

    Don’t think rompers would look good on me, but I’m feeling spring dresses

  218. Melina says:

    I used to like lip glosses that tingle. But nowadays, my lips react to different products including products that leave a tingling feeling. I only go creme finishes to prevent any allergy reaction.

  219. Shawna C says:

    Ohh I just love rompers!! And those two dresses look amazing! <3

  220. eve says:

    My un used products are def Mac msf. Ive got petticoat & so Ceylon and I never use it. Now that I’m thinking about it I’m gonna put the on top of my dresser so they are in my face and I may be more inclined to put them to use.

  221. Soo says:

    I really love the look of that romper and the Print CrΓƒΒͺpe de Chine Dress. I think you can pull off the style too! I think pulling something off is really just about confidence anyway.

    I’m SO ready for spring, I’m visiting le bf in Chicago and it’s so cold here. it even snowed the other day. I’ve actually gotten sick from the cold here as well, and I hadn’t been for so long! boo.

    hope you have a good weekend~

    I’m not much of a romper person (even though the one you pick is adorable), but the other pieces are gorgeous. I particularly love the trench coat). I feel you about the pains (and expense) of dressing like an adult.

    I am way too old for rompers. But I can do lots of pushups, even pullups.

  245. Step says:

    I can totally do pushups! I made it a goal for 2011 so I hope to maintain it this year. There is an app called “Drop and Give Me Twenty” where you put your phone under your face and every time your nose taps the screen, it fills up a little progress bar. It gets really hard after awhile though.

    Hi Karen-

    Heading for Marvin’s this weekend? Do try the pancakes for a change! They are sooooo YUM. And if you are feeling really sinful, add a side of bacon or sausage. As I recall the bacon there is great. Alas, I have not been there in years. Closest thing I can make to their pancakes (and the all time BEST pancakes in the world–Sinton’s Hollywood) is the Fiber One Buttermilk pancake mix. Really yummy.

    If you do get bacon, bring home a bite for Tabs! Better yet, bring him along and let him sign pawtographs. Aalert the press, and who knows, he might make front page in the Advance or IJ!

    I just got a sample of the Buxom lipgloss in Katie from Sephora. I like it, even though they spelt Katie wrong (shld be Katy). But it’s almost like a clear gloss on me. I do like the tingling and the mintiness. It’s not too sticky either.

  310. Angela says:

    I can’t live without red lipstick and perfume.

  311. Katherine says:

    I’m not a big romper fan… I guess I’m just not that hip. I tried on a jumpsuit at Anthropologie once for entertainment only, and I was surprised at how wearable it was but I couldn’t see myself ever wearing it out of the dressing room.

  312. Karen Lenz says:

    I love all the clothing choices actually! although i agree rompers can be tricky to pull off for anyone above the age 17. I think the print and top of the romper are mature and stylish, and makes the out fit really trendsetting and edgy. The dresses are to die for, so beachy. I also just picked up some of cook/shop mac collection yesterday and i’m excited to try them out (3 lip sticks, 1 fluild line and 1 blush).

    How do you feel about rompers?
    If you’re no longer in elementary school, they look ridiculous.

    WhatÒ€ℒs one piece of makeup you own but never wear?

    Do you like lipglosses that tingle?
    Nope, so uncomfortable!

    Can you do a pushup?
    No… πŸ™

    WhatÒ€ℒs your latest drugstore beauty crush?
    The new Yes To Carrots color balms. They must be mine!

    Twinkies or Snowballs?
    Snowballs, definitely. Chocolate always wins over vanilla. πŸ™‚

  354. elle says:

    I’m not convinced there’s an age limit on rompers, but I do think they’re questionable on anyone…but if someone wants to rock one, they ought to go for it. =)

  355. Elena says:

    I hate lipglosses that tingle. The problem is that many of new lipstics tingle too:(

  356. Caroline says:

    I can do a push up – a girly one on my knees, anyway – but not a pull up. :/

  357. Jasmine says:

    I love love love rompers! I feel as though I definitely need to try them on before committing. I have a really super cute one from forever 21. It makes my legs look so long! Anyway much loves to your blog friend πŸ™‚

  358. Betony says:

    All of the pieces you picked out would look fantastic on you. Maybe you could dye the trench? Or stain guard it first? I know I’m super scared of whites for the same reason…makeup and (in my case) dog hair.

    For a cute flushed look I apply hot pink lipstick only on the inside part of lips then blend out. Instant cute lips!

  361. Lily N says:

    Idk about the romper, but I love the trench coat!!

  362. Brenda says:

    I love the blue dress!

  363. Eva says:

    I love that trench!

  364. Sue C. says:

    I like the jacket and the Print CrΓƒΒͺpe de Chine Dress! I continue to buy pretty nail polish but haven’t worn polish for years.

  365. Maureen says:

    I know I’m too old for rompers but that is a cute one.

  366. Carrie says:

    Just discovered this blog a few days ago, and I must say I’m in love! Love that you always show color swatches on human skin. That being said, I really like the anthropologie romper and the pink Presley Skye dress, you will look adorable in either.

  367. Rebekah Thompson says:

    First, let me say that my kitty has just decided that her give-me-love-right-now! lap session is to take place immediately, no exceptions, and so I am having a bit of a struggle with the keyboard, and I do apologize for any typos or the possible mid-sentence departure (kitty will only stand for so much of this computer nonsense before she redirects my attention to the task at hand, that is, the area below her chin needs to be scratched). Rompers are lovely but I don’t know if I could pull that one off, something about the cut makes it seem a bit heavy for a romper, but then again, it’s a nice intermediary romper for the spring, with the lighter and less structured versions are great for summer.

    What I really wanted to comment on is something that has me very upset.. I cannot find these two items anywhere in my city: Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Eyeshadows , and Maybelline Master Shape Brow Pencils. I could go on and on about how I have spent hours and hours scrutinizing the drugstore cosmetic aisles for brow products, and at this point, I am pretty sure I’ve tried them all. And I still havent found one I actually like! I found one once, but all the stores in my area stopped carrying it a month later… and as promising as Maybelline’s define=a=brow seemed, the darn thing only lasted me one day because it was so stiff that it kept snapping off! Well, kitty is pawing at my face, time to wrap it up. Has anyone else had trouble locating these new items? Is there any use in hoping maybe they will arrive on the store shelves in Prescott, AZ a little past the initial product launch dates??

    Thanks for this chance to win , well second chance actually, except I don’t know how to re-tweet so I have my fingers crossed for that one!

  368. peach_ says:

    Those flowy dresses look lovely! I always try on rompers but have never taken one home; they always look somehow wrong on me; I think I look better with pieces of clothing that accentuates my waist or else I just look like a block! I love lip glosses with mint!

  369. marlee says:

    I think you can definitly pull off a romper! The one in the picture is very classy!! I love your style but you would look great in any of those pieces:)

  370. onegreatsmile says:

    Rompers? JUST. SAY. NO!!

  371. Izzy says:

    I love your blog!!! your writing style is great, so happy and bubbly!

  372. Jennifer Rogers says:

    Hmm. When I think of rompers I see those terry cloth ones on my brain. NOT the classy piece above. Ordinarily i would say that rompers do have an age limit, but the absolutely gorgeous piece you have pictured does not fall into that category for me. Just get that “Romper” and enjoy wearing it and being beautiful at the same time!!!

  373. anszara says:

    I love the floral dresses. They look very breezy and spring/summery. Also, the coat looks fabulous, but I agree, it might be impossible to keep it clean.

  374. BeckBeck says:

    I dunno about the rompers… I think they’re the kind of thing that looks amazing on the runway but slightly “off” in real life.

  375. Amy D. says:

    I’m not very good at pushups. :/

  376. LMB (Lisa) says:

    Eeek. I must have a case of official oldness because…I think rompers look weird in real life unless you are under the age of 20 and a size 6 and smaller. I’m neither. Boo!

  377. Sarah Au says:

    Hi Karen!

    On the topic of lip glosses that tingle – I used to really be into Bath and Body Work’s lip glosses since they all have awesome flavors and a minty taste/tingle. But for the past few years I’ve grown to realize having so many sheer lip glosses is pointless and I now try to buy lip glosses that are highly pigmented, regardless of the flavor or if they tingle. Love your blog!

  378. Amy says:

    how do you feel about rompers? Risky
    WhatÒ€ℒs one piece of makeup you own but never wear? False eyelashes
    Do you like lipglosses that tingle? No
    Can you do a pushup? Yes
    WhatÒ€ℒs your latest drugstore beauty crush? Revlon PhotoReady Concealer
    Twinkies or Snowballs? Neither…Funnybones (an east coast thing)

  379. jess says:

    Ugh rompers. I think they can look awkward if you aren’t the right age πŸ™

  380. Claire says:

    I can do more than one pushup πŸ˜€

  381. Lydia says:

    I wish I could rock a romper because I think they’re really cute but they just don’t look good on me,

  382. Morgan says:

    I like the IDEA of rompers but I am 5’2″ and have a short torso so rompers look crazy on me. If I had a body type that fit rompers, I would buy every romper in sight! I saw a romper in tan similar to this at Forever 21 awhile back. Go for it! =]

  383. Stephanie says:

    Style isn’t dictated by age, rock the jumpsuit Karen – you will make it look amazing!

  384. Evelyn says:

    my latest drugstore obsession is the new Revlon LipButter — I want them allllll

  385. Brittany says:

    I absolutely LOVE that trench coat, it’s beautiful! My question to you is, can you name one product that you bought and really regret it?

  386. sherm says:

    I don’t like rompers at all but that trench is fabulous!

  387. Katrina says:

    I’ve been trying to update my wardrobe as well but after two online orders and failing tremendously when I actually put the clothes on I’m headed to the mall on Tuesday to make some returns and hopefully get a couple new things. It’s hard work!

  388. TrippyPixie says:

    To be honest, I’m not a big fan of rompers. They remind me of jumpsuits (and that one girl from the movie “Meatballs”). I’m lucky that I didn’t grow up when they were really popular, but now it seems that they’re making a comeback.

    As for makeup I never wear, bronzer. I have light skin, and I just don’t like how I look with a tan at all. It makes me look weird. I like showing off the lightness in my skin by using pink blushes and red lip colors. I hate the weather in winter, but it really works to show off my skin. =D

  389. Lauren Sutherland says:

    so excited for the new things i picked up at ulta yesterday!

  390. Taylor Burkhardt-Beckley says:

    I love rompers!!! can’t wait for summer to wear them again.

  391. Michelle says:

    I love rompers! They’re super cute and simple, but the biggest con I can find is going to the bathroom in them! Lol.

  392. pearl says:

    Love lipglosses that tingle.

  393. Izzy says:

    I do NOT want to start school tomorrow πŸ™

  394. Amanda G says:

    I love the idea of rompers, but I just don’t have the hips and bust to pull it off — I feel like to make a romper work you have to make it womanly, sexy, otherwise you really do look like a 6 year old. Which is what *I* look like in a romper. πŸ™

  395. Amanda says:

    I love rompers but they just don’t seem to look good on me.

  396. Darlene says:

    Such a beautiful day for hiking πŸ™‚

  397. Jones says:

    I’m excited for Valentine’s Day, or rather the following Thursday…my boyfriend is taking me to the Ringling Bros circus!

  398. Rica says:

    I’ve been rewatching Harry Potter like mad… I’m so sad it’s over… I’m sorry this is not beauty related lol.

    Anyhow I like the romper and the wrap dress! Perfect for Spring and Summer =D.

  404. sarah says:

    i will have to say that i think rompers are for children and hollywood, not real adults. but i do love the trench. though i agree with it getting dirty quickly!

  405. tabby says:

  408. cyra says:

    I really like the kimono dress!

  409. Kat says:

    Not a fan of the white jacket but I LOVE the romper! I agree that rompers usually look a bit juvenile, but I really like the flowy sleeves and the dark colour on that particular one you chose – a mature twist!

  410. Kate says:

    oohhh I like the pink dress with white trench!

  411. Grace says:

    I love the romper!

  421. Hannah says:

    I love that purple romper!

  422. amanda says:

    Hi there Karen, I love the blog! To answer your question, I always seem to buy nude lipsticks, but almost never wear them. I have the exact same skin color as you (NC42, MUFE 153), and I just think it looks weird when most nude lipsticks are paler/cooler/grey-er than my surrounding face! Any tips on your favorite nude lippies would be greatly appreciated! πŸ™‚ Thanks!

  423. Andrea Dyck says:

    I love tingly lip glosses such as the tarte ones or the Covergirl amazemint wetslicks ones- so minty and tingly. It’s the best feeling ever!

  424. Nancy says:

    I love Rompers but I can never seem to pull off the style.

  425. Sunny says:

    Ready for spring!

  426. Janice says:

    The only push-up I can do is a bra.

  427. Tiffany says:

    I’m always on the fence about the clarisonic and too scared to take the plunge.
    Makeup…on the other hand….I have no problem dropping $100 for.

    I don’t understand how my brain works.

  428. Tricia says:

    I like rompers but I don’t think many people can pull them off. I know I can’t. Oh well. Those dresses look cute though!

  429. Elizabeth says:

    I need new clothes for Spring!!!

  430. Gail says:

    Love to win – RIP WHitney

  431. Amanda says:

    I own but never wear eyeliner. I just can’t get it to look right on me! Not black, not brown, not plum or olive or gold. It all just makes me eyes look small. Bummer!

  432. monika says:

    Love Fergie’s look in Grammy’s!!!She looks sexy, yet polished:)

  433. tierra says:

    WhatÒ€ℒs one piece of makeup you own but never wear? …um, probably my Wonder Woman Pink Power MSF. I love it so much I don’t want to use it up! That is silly of me though because it is SO huge, lol. πŸ˜‰
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  434. Jill says:

    rompers scare me. no lie.

  435. nabel says:

    Love love love your blog! I always check your rating on makeup before i purchase any products im unsure about! πŸ™‚

  436. Lola says:

    I have a weird stance on rompers. If it’s cut and designed well, then it looks great and practical, but if it’s slightly off then it can be awfully unflattering!

  437. Eliza says:

    I can’t do a romper… I don’t think they’re all that flattering unless you able to accessorize it quite well.

  438. Brit says:

    I’m excited that tendertones are back!

  439. Michelle says:

    I love glosses that tingle, especially Buxom Lip Polishes. They’re my favorite!

  440. laura o'farrell says:

    i think there are rompers suitable for every age…i have a hot pink lip color from NARS that i have only worn around the house for fun…i love kitties!

  441. Siena says:

    Bronzers, bronzers, bronzers. I buy them but almost never wear them, probably because they’re all waay too glittery for me! I want something to slightly contour and cover up my terrible tan lines and that’s all.

  442. MelodyJ says:

    I like the Kimono and the Print Dresses.


  443. Susan says:


  444. jen says:

    the romper is really gorgeous! i think there are no age limit for wearing rompers as long as the design suits your age ^^ and the silk kimono sleeve faux wrap dress is awesome sauce! u should buy it! i personally think it will look good on you! πŸ™‚

  445. josephine says:

    i love rompers! so comfy and easy!

  446. josephine says:

  447. Shelby says:

    Personally, I don’t like the look of rompers. Then again, I only wear jeans and t-shirts.

  448. telsa says:

    personally i don’ get rompers. its like a one piece bathing suit, who wants to take it all off to use the restroom?!?

  452. Sophie says:

    If I won I’m going to get lorac unzipped palette and the smashbox lipstain in guava that I had my eyes on for a long time.

  453. Janet says:

    Not particularly keen on rompers… They look okay on some people. I wouldn’t get one for myself, though.
