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

Hi there! Nice to see you this morning. Tabs and I (and these three bears) are out here freezing our tails off today. It dropped down into the upper 20s last night, and it’s barely above freezing right now. Late last night I covered our one citrus tree with a big bed sheet to hopefully keep it a little warmer.


Not much new to report. I’m having some toast for breakfast, and then I’m gonna hop on the treadmill for a spell. After that, who knows? The sky’s the limit! πŸ™‚

Hope you have a great Saturday (don’t forget to enter this weekend’s giveaway), and I’ll touch base again soon.

What folks are saying…

“What a lovely surprise it was to see your announcement (after completing one of many exams/papers/projects I have this crazy week)! The eCard will definitely ease expenses for this broke, beauty-obsessed college student. Thank you, Karen and Tabs!!”

“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. πŸ™‚ 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.”

“Thank you SO much Karen! OMG! Wishes really do come true! I can’t believe I won! You have no idea how much this will help me through the holidays. I’ve been an avid fan of your blog for the past two years. Your witty and creative entries, informative makeup information, and beautiful photos have kept me hooked. I look forward to more of it. Goodness, you’ve
seriously just made my week and it’s only Tuesday night!”

“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)

“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.”

They have so many things that you can just walk around for like an hour playing πŸ™‚

  31. Amy Crumbaugh says:

    I really love your blog, Karen – I always check here first before I buy any beauty product I’m considering. I love the old standby beauty stops like Sephora, but I’ve found that Target is great for cheap finds! Although honestly, the place I shop most often for beauty products is in magazines!

    I love Essie nail polishes!

  48. Alison says:

    I think nail art can be very technically impressive, but I just can’t see myself actually wearing the more complex designs in my daily life. The craziest I’d go would be, like, different colored tips or a chevron or stripe. No tiny portraits of The Avengers for me!

  49. Emily says:

    Who doesn’t love Sephora? Unfortunately looking without buying is almost impossible.

  50. Brooke says:

    I work as a therapist in a nursing home and a lot of the administrative employees bring their dogs to work – even some of the nurses. I am a huge animal lover, but I think it’s kind of weird. One nurse even rigged up a blanket to put around her neck so her mini Chihuahua can snuggle in it.

    Big fan of Zoya and Butter nail polishes

  57. sweeks1980 says:

    I love Zoya nail polishes. They tend to wear very well on me, and the company has awesome promos!

    I’ve always loved fairy tales, but my favorite one growing up was “Beauty and the Beast.”

  58. Tiffanie says:

    I’m headed to the treadmill too. Happy Saturday!

    The Little Mermaid for me. πŸ™‚ I’m a fan of the original Hans Christian Anderson version as well as the Disney adaptation. ^^

  72. Audrey C. says:

    I WISH I had a job that let me bring my pets to work… I swear, I’m like a helicopter mom when it comes to my dogs. I hug and kiss them each before I leave and tell them to be good boys and take care of each other. While I’m at work, I text my boyfriend to tell them I love them. Everyone thinks I’m nuts. πŸ˜›

  94. Kay J says:

    Yes I can do my makeup without looking in a mirror!

  95. Megan says:

    I’ve always like renditions of Beauty and the Beast. Also the 12 Dancing Princesses.

    My favorite brand of nail polish is Revlon.

  109. Melissa says:

    I’ve been doing pretty good working out so far this year. I’ve been doing about 5 days a week. I’m planning to keep that up until I reach my goal. Lets hope work (that I have to do at home) doesn’t get in the way.

  110. Nail art is good as long as it’s just a design or pattern and not like a painting, then it’s a bit impractical and doesn’t look good unless seen close up.

  111. Kylie says:

    I quite like Essie, but I must say, recently my favorite nail polish brand is Sally Hansen, especially their Complete Salon Manicure. I’ve been wearing my nails in 404 Greige Gardens for over two weeks now and only the tips of my nails are showing wear. But chipping? None so far! I type on a keyboard all day and wash my hands at least ten times while I’m at work, and so far, I’m quite amazed! My co-workers even thought I went to a nail salon to do them. Maybe it’s my Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Top Coat that’s taking all the brunt, but I’m impressed so far!

  112. Nora says:

    It was 28 degrees in Oregon this morning when we took a walk with our Golden Retriever Robbie. It got up to 32 degrees….heat wave!

  116. Lori says:

    OPI is my favorite nail polish and I collect it like whoa. I do love nail art but only on the toes because art on my fingernails don’t last with all the typing I do. πŸ™‚

  122. Stephanie says:

    I work at a pet clinic, so no problem bringing my pets to work. πŸ™‚

  123. Siobhan says:

  130. Shannon Ikerd says:

    Support a makeup junkie!! πŸ™‚

  131. TrippyPixie says:

    My favorite fairy tale as a kid was “The Twelve Dancing Princesses”. However, since I’m ethnically German, I was read a lot of German fairy tales. It’s pretty much a rule that they’re all frightening. I was read Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales and “Max und Moritz”, but the worst book by far was “Der Struwwelpeter”. I still scream when I see that book.

  132. Amber says:

    My favorite makeup discovery now is Dior Addict Lip Glow. It has kept my lips from becoming more dry and chapped this winter. Am a recent reader of your blog and just love all of your product reviews. You do an awesome job !!

  133. Mercedes carrera says:

    My favorite fairy tale is Cinderella, it shows even if you don’t have anything at all, you can still live a happy life and appreciate everything you have & the whole movie has wonderful meanings to it. I love the movie and everything about it. πŸ™‚ & my favorite brand of nail polish is Essie. Only have 2 but they are my favorite by far. Thank you for being so kind by doing this giveaway!

    Just had some delicious sushi and I’m bummed Denver lost. Would love a gift card! I want to try the Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder foundation πŸ™‚

  136. Kelsey-Belle says:

    Rogue from X-Men followed closely by catwoman.

  137. Cassidey says:

    I am really liking Blistex Moisture Melt for keeping my lips smooth this winter!

  138. BeckBeck says:

    I can’t do full makeup without a mirror, but I can do lipstick without one. My mom was always impressed πŸ˜‰

  139. Katty says:

    I always need a mirror to do makeup, even bought a fancy lighted mirror recently!

  140. Melody says:

    Thanks for the giveaway and happy weekend!

  141. Madeleine says:

    I don’t have a favorite nail polish yet. Want to try Essie and Zoya but they are not available in my country. OPI and China glaze are pretty good but they chip on me.

  142. Tricia says:

    Snow White is my favorite fairy tale character! Thanks for the giveaway!

  143. Moon says:

    It was a busy day! Went all the way to Houston downtown to donate medical supplies and to the Asian grocery store to shop and cook!

  144. saffron says:

    The husband is out with friends for the first time in forever. My exciting saturday night? Eatin cookies while covered with cats.
    Thanks for the contest!

  145. Alicia says:

    I absolutely cannot do my makeup without a mirror – are there people who actually can? I can barely put my makeup on properly *with* a mirror, lol.

  146. colleen boudreau says:


  147. Nikki A says:

    I love Essie polish, and Gambit from X-men. I just Googled that struwwelpeter book that Trippypixie mentioned-yikes! I can only imagine the nightmares that book would have caused.

    Watching some football right now. Go Niners!

  149. Deanna G. says:

    I love nail art! πŸ™‚

  150. Rosa says:

    Love Cinderella

  151. Tennyoceres says:

    I’m tipsy thanks to this Niner game but I am still lucid enough to remember this contest. You should really try the new Sephora metallic eyeshadow. You would swear it’s a name brand eyeshadow, and not a store brand.

  152. EAST says:

    Well, I am able to bring my fuzzy kitties to work, sort of, because I telecommute. It’s always fun when I’m on my work phone and one of my little women meow very loudly causing my coworker asks me if they heard a cat. Even better- speaking with someone outside of the office!

  153. Hi Karen, today I visited the national museum (Te Papa) in Wellington New Zealand. We took photos in front of the trolls from the Hobbit. It was heaps of fun. Hope you’re having an equally enchanting weekend xx

    Fave nail polish brand- Estee Lauder. Fairy tales- love them all! Still love mythology, fairy tales, folk tales. I collect them and have loads of them on my shelf. Fave places to shop for makeup- sephora(but I wish they’d turn down the music!) and ulta. Love nail art but can’t stand feeling anything but smooth on my own nails. Could never handle the 3-d. but I like looking at other people’s 3D nails. thanks for the contest

    Sephora is obviously a great store to shop for makeup. I also like browsing at the Macy’s in Union Square, especially now that they carry Inglot.

  171. Mel Layesen says:

    Today, I drove to two different Targets to find a specific L’Oreal primer because I have a $2 off coupon for it. Sadly, it was not in stock at either store, and I have no idea when it will be restocked πŸ™

I have a son who is 5 who is a boy boy and doesn’t care about fairy tales but wheni found out i was having a girl with my next child i was so excited to be able to fun girl things with her. she is now 2 years old and loves dressing like a princess and loves fake makeup.

  190. Valerie says:

    My favourite brand of polish is Etude, especially their wide variety of glitter polishes. But I’m currently really loving nail stickers- both the decorative ones you can put on top of polish or the full nail sets. My students really enjoy looking at them while I grade their activity books. Looking at 3D nail art makes my fingers feel really uncomfortable, though! It looks heavy and awkward.

  191. Amy says:

    Smashbox has become one of my very favorite makeup brands! I love their new Love Me collection!

    I just finished watching QVC and spent way more than I thought I would on Mally beauty. Cross your fingers that I chose the right foundation color! That is always distressing when you shop online. Which color am I? It took lots of comparing and I am still not confident on my choice.

    My favorite nail polish brand is Revlon.

  226. Audrey says:

    Gotta give it to Sally Hansen. Their Xtreme Wear polishes are great, and they’re really inexpensive! Their quick-dry top coat is also awesome – I like it even better than Seche Vite.

    That’s big NO on nail art. My nails are so dry they peel and chip like crazy, so I don’t put that much effort into my nails other than some really cool polish.

    Batman! (ingenuity over super-powers), Cinderella (and the under-rated fairy godmother), can’t even imagine trying to put on makeup without a mirror, interesting thought…people commuting with their pets πŸ™‚ but have never had such a job.

    I’m too lazy to do my nails, plus I have to type a lot. I like Sephora, if only because they let you browse as long as you like, and carry a multitude of brands. The points system and samples are pretty cool as well.

    My favorite comic character is Babe the Blue Ox from DC Vertigo’s Fable spin off series, Jack of Fables. She cracks me up, but it isn’t easy to explain why… you’d have to look it up.

  372. Jennifer says:

    i love zoya!

  392. jane says:

    i love zoya polish

  393. Jasmine says:

    My favorite brand of nail polish is probably Zoya. Essie is a close second but the creamy colors can be a little streaky at times. I’m a fan of nail art on other people. I like to see how creative some people can get but I myself stick with the basic manicure with color.

  394. Liz says:

    I’ve never had a job where I could brink my kitties to work with me, with one exception. When I was stationed in Panama, my neighbors found a newborn kitten and brought it to me since I was the resident CCL. Since he had to be fed every couple of hours, the Commanding Officer gave me permission to bring him with me to work, as long as he didn’t come to meetings or distract the troops. He came with me on trips to the Atlantic coast, however, and got to know a lot of fleet sailors. I think he peed on half the Pacific Fleet! One ship whose XO had to wait for his ship for a week hanging out at my office always thereafter had a line in their LOGREQs sending their regards to my cat. He was a character, and I miss him dearly.

  395. Kira says:

    Zoya and Essie are my go tos πŸ˜€ They’re typically fool proof for me. Dior is also up there.

  396. Rosemarie says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! Hope it warms up soon!

  414. Bonnie says:

    I’ve never had a job where pets were allowed…but then, prior to my current “animal companion” (as the pet store calls them), it had been a long time since my last pet anyway, so it was never something that I thought about.

  415. jen says:

    Oh my gosh…considering that I am trying to find the perfect makeup FINALLY in my 40’s…I could so use this and then some! Love your blog because it helps me navigate this overwhelming world of potions, lotions, powders, and all things beauty. Thank you!

    My little tabby has been all up in my business today! probably because I am getting things done instead of crashing on the couch after work like I usually do! He isn’t allowed in the office unless one of us is in here so he is loving the window! I’m not complaining, it is nice to have a little buddy following me wherever I go:)

  428. Katie says:

    I’m dying to get my MAC Archie’s Girls Collection! <3
