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

It’s hard to believe it’s already October… Halloween is just a couple weeks away. Pumpkins are popping up everywhere, and we actually had our first rains of the season this week.


Not cool, Mother Nature. Not cool. ๐Ÿ™‚

A lot of my friends prefer this time of year, the autumn, but I wish we could just have summer all year long. I’m one of those savannah cats that likes the heat more than the cold.

This weekend, I just want to catch my breath, watch a little Revenge on TV and maybe do some shopping for a dining room table.

Yes, I still have an empty dining room after more than three years. Well, except for the cardboard boxes, bags of clothes for donation and the food and water bowls for Tabs. He sort of owns the dining room right now, but I reeeeally want it back.

My in-laws have been visiting for a couple days, so that’s been nice. They’ve been keeping themselves busy during the day while El Hub and I work, but we meet them at night for meals. We went out to dinner to a little Italian place in the very pretty, woodland town of Larkspur last night (Fabrizio’s Ristorante), and in a little while we’re meeting them down the street here in Novato for breakfast at Marvin’s.

You know how it is when people visit from out of town. You eat lots and lots and food.

I hope whatever you’re up to, things are good. Have a great day today, and good luck in this weekend’s Sephora e-gift card giveaway. Talk to you soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

What folks are saying…

“Hi Karen. Oh my goodness! I can’t believe I won! :O Thank you so much! You, Tabs, and your blog are amazing! Thank you for keeping me updated on all things beauty and more importantly, for keeping me entertained! Keep doing your thing! Thank you again.”

“Thanks so much, Karen. Just in case you were wondering what I got with it, I decided to go with the Clarisonic Mia–I’ve been wanting it for years now, but have never purchased it because of the price. Your eCard helped me finally buy it! I look forward to using it. Thanks again!”

“Shut the front door! OMG Karen, you have made my day. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sick in bed with the flu and this has just cheered me up immensely!!!!!!!! BTW, I’m the one that sent you that pic of my pug in a wig a few weeks back LOL! Thanks again, honestly, I’m beyond giddy right now.”

“Oh my goodness! Thank you so much Karen (and Tabs, of course)! I really appreciate this! I’d been eyeing the Anastasia brow pencil in Strawburn to match my red hair!”
-Chelsea (and Jiji the kitten and Quincy the bunny)

“Never before have I been so pleased to check my email right before bed!!! Thank you so, so much! I truly enjoy your blog and check it almost daily! Thanks again! This made my night!”
-Melissa, Edmond, OK

“Hi Karen. Thank you so much, I’m so excited, I’ve never won anything before. My name is Hana … I just turned 25 (today is my birthday!) Yay! Thank you.”

  16. marisol says:

    I really want some red streaks in my hair but the keep up is what’s stopping me from doing so n

  17. Alison says:

    Love that you’re eating well and trying some delicious places! We mostly cook at home, but love when visitors come. Last night, I tried to replicate a delicious dish from a local italian restaurant. We sauteed crimini mushrooms, basil and white onions in olive oil and butter, and then tossed it with the butternut squash ravioli from TJs. I shaved a little parm on top, and we had a salad. It was yummy. Have you tried that ravioli?

  18. Krisabelle says:

    I LURVES Revenge, too! I live in Atlanta so it is HOT as business here the majority of the time. I love fall for this reason – it’s such a short break here from the heat. You should definitely move farther south, lol! Enjoy your weekend, peaches!

  19. Ivy says:

    I loooove Italian!

  23. Fannie says:

    I LOVE fall. It is my favorite hands down. However, it is just too short! I did warm up to summer a lot this year, though. I do miss the amazing warmth but do not miss that cray yyyyy humidity.

    One of my favorite memories is gutting pumpkins with my mom, going through all the guts, picking out the seeds, and baking them ๐Ÿ™‚ It is such a cool process, and you really use every bit of the pumpkin ^_^

  24. Nikki says:

    My favorite season is spring! Everything is so light, airy, and just happy. The weather is also perfect for me – a bit chilly but you can still feel some sun heat! <3 I like Italian food, although most of the time I opt for something else because it's a bit too heavy for me! I've always wanted to dye my hair baby/strawberry milkshake pink and I LOVE glitter nail polish!

    How is your weekend going Karen?? Give Tabby a kiss for me ๐Ÿ˜€

  28. Zhar says:

    I love the show Revenge! Gonna shop Sephora later to snag my fave Tarina Tarantino liners on sale bummed they’re leaving Sephora ๐Ÿ™

  30. Heidi says:

  37. Jennifer Rivera says:

  38. Sharon S says:

    I love fall for running outside–cool, crisp, dry air is awesome.

  39. Carolyn N. says:

    I love the fall season!

  40. jen. says:

    A weekend full of food and fall weather sounds awesome to me. It’s feeling downright autumnal here in AZ… it’s only supposed to be 91F tomorrow! Haha.

    I’ve never dyed my hair, but I do get it straightened. That’s pricey enough. I just got some Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Oil, and I’m really liking it so far.

  41. Lala says:

    I love Italian food!

  42. janey says:

    Current fave styling product: Bumble and Bumble Texture Creme. Just cut my hair short and this stuff gives me the texture and wave I crave. No muss, no fuss. Genius.

  43. lori says:

    Hi! My favorite season is absolutely autumn! I love the cooler weather, the warmer scents and colors. I adore the brisk change in the air and the whiff of fireplaces back in use. The fiery oranges and sunset ambers and golds of the leaves are fun, and I love the plums, wine reds, forest greens and midnight navies of fall cosmetics and clothes. Plus, who can resist the embrasing aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, and warm vanilla?

  44. Nika says:

    Italian food is my weakness!!

  45. AG says:

    For the first time, I think, I’m actually excited ti see summer turn into fall!

  46. Tiffanie says:

    My sister is visiting from out-of-town and we are headed out for the day to go shopping. I’m so excited!

  47. Emily says:

    So far this weekend I’ve done jack squat! except read beauty blogs.

  48. Pam says:

    I discoved Klorane dry shampoo this year. It’s great when you need to go an extra day or two without washing your hair.

  49. Khalilah says:

    Mission this weekend: Address the wedding invitations! I love Italian food, fixing ravioli as I type…

  50. Hannah S. says:

    See, I love the Autumn. Just got my new Samhain bottle from BPAL! ๐Ÿ˜€

  51. Kellie says:

    Going to the pumpkin patch this weekend!

  52. Nicole says:

    I think I like fall best!

  53. MJ says:

    Winter is my favorite season, so I’m actually looking forward to the cooler weather (and rain). :3

  54. Esther says:

    I live for fall and winter. they’re my favorites. I live in georgia, so we don’t get much cold weather, but I love the charm that comes with thinking about winter :3

  55. Ashley says:

    Fall is my favourite season but I love winter for the holidays, of course!

  56. I love fall because it doesn’t have any major holidays (that I choose to participate in at least), because mums are everywhere and because I am a pumpkin latte fanatic.

  57. Julie says:

    I love fall. I just drove back yesterday to my mom’s place in Ohio, where I grew up, and I’ve gotten my first taste of fall weather this year. It is heavenly–colorful leaves, crisp air, apple cider, pumpkins….couldn’t ask for anything more!

  58. Rebecca says:

    My favorite season is Autumn. I live in Texas, so summers are unbearably hot, and they last from April until October. I get to wear my gorgeous tall boots and yummy cashmere sweaters and stop shaving my legs. Also there’s NCAA football, the NFL, MLB playoffs and (I hope) the start of the NHL season. It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year for sports fans like me!

  59. Shelby says:

    I love Italian food!! Yum!

  60. Elise says:

    I looooove Italian food! It is by far my favorite type of food!

  61. Ellen says:

    Yay Sephora!!!

  62. onegreatsmile says:

    I have always wanted to do a giant tomato red streak right in the front of my hair. I’m chicken.

  63. laura says:

    i like glitter nail polish. my nails are currently sparkly pink with glittery tips.

  64. Laura H says:

    I actually just dyed my hair fuchsia and purple ! I love it !

  65. auroragyps says:

    I’m planning on dying my hair light pink soon (I was supposed to this Summer, but I had some scalp issues due to hot weather & sweating… bleh). As for a primary color, I might for for the right shade of blue, red, or purple. I’d love to dye my hair green, but I don’t think I could pull it off.

  66. Nobu says:

    I should probably dye my hair since my roots are showing hard core lol

  67. megan says:

    i love glitter nail polish ๐Ÿ™‚

  68. Melitina says:

    I love autumn, where unfortunately where I live now there are only 2 seasons: rainy, or less rainy ๐Ÿ˜‰

  69. Liz says:

    I love italian food. Darn I’m hungry right now.

  70. Karen says:

    I like late summer/early fall the most.

  71. Maria says:

    I am so happy! We have never had Illamasqua in Canada, and I was at my local Sephora a few days ago and found their nail varnishes! I’m hoping it’s a sign that their whole line is coming!

    I bought my first varnish from them, and as expected – i’m totally in love!!!

  72. Georgette says:

    I adore both the autumn and Italian food — yum!

  73. Michelle O. says:

    Just got low lights for the first time today – trying to embrace the fall!

  74. Ris says:

    Every year when I was a kid, my family would invite the neighbors over and we all carve pumpkins together. We’re all quite a bit older, now, though, so we mostly just gather and eat nowadays.

  75. My hair feels great today after a lovely hair spa! And I don’t think I’ll ever color my hair a bright primary color.

    Autumn is awesome! Today I went out for British tea and then to a juried craft show, which was really fun.

  77. Brooke says:

    My favorite season is Fall. Leather boots, jeans, and boots! Also love hot cider and crunchy leaves.

  78. S says:

    I actually really love fall. We had a very humid summer this year so I’m relieved to actually have some cooler, crisper weather for a change. I think I’d prefer summer if we had dry heat, instead of humidity!

  82. Clara N. says:

    I like Italian food, but I get a bit sick of it sometimes..

  83. Mariam says:

    I found my first gray hair a few weeks ago. I’ve never died my hair so it was a little traumatic. I gave a quick cry, plucked it out, and made my gray hair POA. When I start to get multiple strands, I’m going to henna my dark hair until all the roots start getting crazy. THEN I’ll dye it.

  84. Andrea Alli says:

    I am a sucker for any makeup palette!

  85. aclearcutsign says:

    I love the fall season…

  86. Lydia says:

    Fall is my favorite season!

    This weekend we’re celebrating my hubby’s birthday! Finally we in the same decade! I’ve been waiting for him to catch up! Lol!

  91. aubrie says:

    Not a fan of glitter polish. I think I’m too old for it.

  92. Asia Hu says:

    Hi Karen, I love fall. The leaves changing colors, the subtle breeze, and the smell of apple pie put me in the perfect mood. I can’t wait to go apple picking and dress up on halloween.

  93. jaymie says:

    Dont see my previous comment…so maybe it didnt go through. But i love glitter nail polish, just hate when i have to take it off!!

  94. Mary says:

    My hair right now is bright, bright blue! I have to be honest, I love it because I get more compliments when my hair sticks out than I ever did when my hair was its natural color. My bangs are platinum blonde with purple tips, and my hair is neon blue ombre that fades to black at the bottom. It’s beautiful, I have to redo it at least once a month, but I love all the compliments I get on it. Pravana and the Color Ion from sally’s make the best primary colored hair dyes, they seriously last a ridiculously long time, and they don’t fade weird. I used to use Manic Panic, and the blue would fade to this awful greenish color. When I use Pravana or Color Ion, it fades to a lovely shade of turquoise or pastel-blue so I can keep it for up to a month (until I get tired of my dark roots and redo it.)

  95. Ambi says:

    I love the fall season because you can bundle and layer all types of article of clothing, Winter not so much because it gets too cold for my bones.

  96. indoorkitty says:

    The burning question I have for the world today is, what is sassafras? I hear people talking about it all the time around where I’m currently professionally exiled. It appears to be what one used to make rootbeer out of, before you know the FDA banned it for liver damage. Hmmmm. So is it something the locals have been using to make homebrew rootbeer? Intriguing.

    Is it wrong to wonder what it smells like? I love my liver too hard to try some out, but just a sniff? What do you guys think?

  101. Jenna N. says:

    Is it technically “retweeting” when we are the ones posting the tweet, and not hitting “retweet” to something you posted? Just something I’ve always wondered about. Anywho- it’s the weekend! YAY! I’m hoping that the alleged Sephora Friends and Family sale is really going to happen this year, as per the Makeupalley rumors.

    My favorite hairstyle ever was when I was in college and I dyed it blue. I bleached out the bottom 4 inches of my dark brown hair and then dipped it in Manic Panic’s Shocking Blue (for waaay longer than the container says to leave it on). My ends were this amazing vibrant color, but because it was just the ends it wasn’t overwhelming.

    Yay! I could really use one of these, especially after the day I have had so far!

    I used to carve pumpkins all of the time when I lived on base and people used to get really into Halloween. People here don’t get into Halloween here, so carving a pumpkin isn’t much fun! My least favorite part was taking out the innards of the pumpkin as I HATE the texture and the look of it; it looks like brains! Ewwwwwwwwwwwww.

    Italian food is great , but I love Greek food more,that special lamb that they make is the best.

  168. eRiN says:

    I’ve been seeing pumpkins for sale at all the grocery stores lately – but the weirdest thing! In front of one Safeway, they had these greenish-gray pumpkins next to the white ones. They were zombie-colored pumpkins, I kid you not! Which could come in handy, I guess, for a zombie-o-lantern …

    I love glitter nail polish!

The apple picking, the leaves changing, all the pumpkins stuff you can eat or drink, and by far wearing boots and chunky sweaters. Oh yeah, wearing the new oxblood inspired lipstick and nail polish. Best season ever!

  194. julie says:

    I probably won’t dye my hair a primary color. I am trying to go more natural with my hair. However, I do loooove glitter on my nails!

    Love italian food my favs is lasagna , and also loce pasta with pesto and alfredo sauce, Ia enjoy a four cheese pasta. Bolognese pasta which we had today
    as dessert I love tiramisu.

    Glitter on my nails depends it has to be very small micro in one color and a very similar color than on the polish . something like LA color Addict. OPI Unripened.
    NOT chunky , hexagonal or multi colors

    If should dare I should make my hair blue, royal blue, instead I used a blue hair dye to cover my start of grey hairs. My hair is almost black kind of soft black so u wont see the blue right away, but the grey does.

  357. kara d. says:

    I’ve always thought that Kate Winslet’s character in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind has the coolest hair–I don’t know what it is but she really works it unlike anyone I’ve ever really seen in real life with dyed red/blue hair!

  358. Janet Pedrazza says:

    Hola! Being latin, I’ve always vacillated between keeping my shiny, dark hair or going for the more summery look that highlights provide. I have a naturally olive complexion so I can’t go too light but at the same time, I love the brightness that face-framing highlights can give. What do you think? Please share your thoughts! XOXO

  359. Kesley says:

    I’m a savannah cat like you too! And if I didn’t have to worry about damage, my hair would already be blue. All of it! Right now I’ve got the underneath of my hair teal and once that fades out I’m going rainbow! Soooo excited!

  360. Katie says:

    I can’t decide between summer and winter! I just love how different the two seasons are, what moods they put me in…

  365. Rie Maeda says:

    i love summer! i miss it so much..

  366. Tara says:

    I ABSOLUTELY love italian food! Too bad, because it is the most carbilicious and tempting cuisine. Honestly, who doesn’t love pasta and bread? Although it’s good for my tummy, it’s horrible for my diet! ๐Ÿ™‚

  374. Christin says:

    Just days now before Sephora opens in Sweden ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy!

  375. Rita O says:

    Autumn is definitely my favorite time of the year. I think overall I just function better when it cools down and the leaves are changing colors. I often get really nostalgic, but it is also a time of rejuvenation. My birthday is in November, and this year it will fall on Thanksgiving (as it did in the year I was born) so that will be fun. Hope you’re having a great weekend!

  376. raina99 says:

    Just got back from a beautiful walk with my puppers. Fall is beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

  378. Winn says:

    I’m a big fan of glittery nails! At least until the removal process…

    I love fall and winter (as long as the snow is minimal)!

  383. Cecilia Ballesteros says:

    I really want cooler weather to start because I am tired of being so shiny!!

  384. Lyndsay says:

    I have to say fall is my favorite season. I live in Appalachia, so there are lots of hills and trees around. When the leaves change colors, it looks like the hills are on fire. It’s gorgeous.

  385. Liz says:

    haha, my family has some relatives in from out of town and all the food we have been treating them to has made me stray from my recently formed good eating habits. i did squeeze in some work outs in the morning before festivities began though.

  386. Hofken says:

    Today is a beautiful fall day in Tucson. I hope the high temps have finally passed

  394. Aysha Habib says:

    My current favorite hairstyling product is the Phytolisse Serum which is an ultra gloss finishing serum and helps define the waves/curls in my hair. Oh and another wonderful feature is that it smells like jasmine!

  395. Janet says:

    Hi Karen,

    Welp, the hubs and I just got back from Vegas. We were celebrating our anniversary with a little weekend getaway. I love going on little vacas but it’s always nice to get back home (and catch up on all the beauty blogging I missed ๐Ÿ˜‰ So, that was my weekend. Hope yours was wonderful too.

    BTW, I have died my hair bright red. Well, bright red highlights on my dark brown hair AND I love to carve pumpkins. I do so love fall. ๐Ÿ™‚

  412. Sarah YP says:

    I love autumn! My birthday is around the corner and I just found out I was pregnant this weekend! I spent a lot of time in shock over the past 48 hours. Hubs and I are very excited.

  413. Jane says:

    The weather was gorgeous here today. . .78 degrees! It will be cold soon enough. A Sephora gift card would make the transition to winter a lot easier.

  414. Allison says:

    I just spent two hours at Sephora trying on makeup and nail polish. My boyfriend will never understand my addiction. Lol!

  425. blkrox says:

    After 10 years in the Philippines and only two seasons – hot and HELLA hot, I love all four seasons. And I love Italian food, especially butternut squash ravioli sprinkled with a little brown butter sauce, oh NOM NOM!

  428. Wynell says:

    my favorite season is summer

  429. Sarah says:

    Spring is my favorite season, because it means the winter is finally over. Fall is pretty nice too, but it means the cold and dreary weather of winter is coming.

  430. Katherine says:

    My favorite season depends on where I’m living. Growing up in New England, it was spring, in Texas it was the fall, and in the Northwest I like summer.

  431. elle says:

    I’d never go through with it, but I do have a thing for deep red hair…

  432. Amy says:

    I would love to dye my hair bright canary yellow. I am naturally blonde and I’ve dyed it purple in high school, took forever to get that out!

  433. Tiffany Li says:

    I love it in seattle, the rain is coming and I cuddle with my two dogs consuming coffee and everything pumpkin flavored! It’s also the perfect time to enjoy a book.

  434. Sunandha says:

  452. Kelly in DC says:

    Hi Karen, I really like glitter polishes like Deborah Lippmann’s collection, but I have such a hard time removing the polish from my nails. Those bigger glitter pieces sometimes just won’t budge. Ugh. So for the moment I’m loving dark creme colors.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway! I can’t imagine summer all year long. Mississippi summers are pretty brutal- and definitely not good for makeup. Lol. I always look forward to this time of year. Autumn and winter hold my favorite memories, weather, holidays…there’s really nothing I don’t love.

  461. Mary says:

    I love autumn…if it would ever really get here! It’s still hot where I live!

  462. Karla says:

    Glitter doesn’t fit my look, but I enjoy it so much! I put it on my toes during the winter. That way, I get to have a fun little secret glam when it’s cold outside.

  463. ali says:

    I love pumpkin flavored coffee!

    Mad in love with quirky shoes and bright coloured bags!

  468. Liz K says:

    I’ve never carved a pumpkin. My parents weren’t born in the US; they came here in their 30s so it wasn’t a tradition for them. When I went to friends’ houses I was afraid I would cut myself and my friends agreed I should just watch lol…let’s just say I am a bit of a clutz lol

  469. Bel P. says:

    My favorite season is absolutely fall! I am so excited that I can start wearing boots again, this SoCal weather is killing me..

  478. Jess L says:

    Love Karen’s blog posts and sephora giveaways! <3

  479. Christine says:

    I never ever styled my hair until recently. I have straight black hair that behaves well when air dried, so I didn’t mess with it. But I’ve started curling the ends slightly and putting serums and stuff into my hair, and I’m starting to realize why other girls spend so much time on their hair! I’m considering a multi-dimensional dye job, where you keep your top layer natural color and go two or three shades lighter on the layers underneath.

  480. linda says:

    Great prize!

  481. Lacey J. says:

    I could really use that sephora gift card for a new foundation this winter! My skin is already way too pale for the two I have in my makeup arsenal. My skin also is super dry all of a sudden so I need something hydrating and lightweight! Nars Punjab sheer glow is my go to. Might pick up a new one in a lighter shade, or I might get something, maybe even more dewy?

  482. Frances says:

    Love this site!!!!

  483. jamie says:

    Hi Karen. Love your blog!

  484. Mandy says:
