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

Been a busy week here at Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC! Things kicked into overdrive when Friskies tapped Tabs to be their Global Gravy Ambassador.


What an honor. πŸ™‚

But it’s been intense! The position involves a lot of PR, lots of travel, building buzz about gravy and the gravy-eating lifestyle to cats around the world. To prepare himself, Tabs has immersed himself in gravy…

Not literally, of course. I mean he’s been doing a lot of napping, purr-chirping and, yes, eating lots of gravy.

I’d say it’s grueling, but it’s really not.

Today is actually the first day off Tabs has had in weeks. I asked him this morning what his plans were, and he said, “Mrow!” He’s going to spend the day gaming and might stop by Sephora and Petco to stock up on essentials…

And speaking of stocking up on essentials, have you entered this weekend’s Sephora eGift card giveaway yet?

I try to host one every week to say “thank you” for visiting the blog. I know you’ve got a lot on your plate, and I’m grateful that you include me and Tabs in your online travels.

Details to enter are just down below (only takes a comment at the bottom of this post). Have a great weekend, and I’ll catch up with you soon.

What folks are saying…

“Hi Karen!!! Wow, that news definitely gets a hoo ray ray and an elephant!!! (I’ve maybe been watching too much Boardwalk Empire.) Thank you so much!!!”

“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!”

  60. Toby says:

    Favourite video game is a tough one, but I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for Mario 2D platformers, especially Super Mario World.

  61. Preethi says:

    korres wild rose facial is my favorite . it is most amazing and works wonders !!!

  62. Rebecca says:

    For a while I was full-on addicted to Angry Birds! I had to quit cold turkey when I caught myself playing at 4:00 in the morning. I have hella dark undereye circles and deep-set eyes, so I look like a zombie without concealer. Current rotation includes MAC Pro Longwear and EL Double Wear, but I still haven’t found one that covers completely, stays on without creasing, and doesn’t cause breakouts. Next to try is MUFE Full Cover or Hourglass stick concealer, unless someone has another suggestion?

  63. Ellen says:

    YES to chocolate for breakfast. By far my favorite chocolate morning meal is only available in Europe (of course) – Nestle Chocapic cereal. The flakes are SO hearty and crunchy, with overwhelming chocolate in every bite. They put things like Cocoa Puffs to shame. If you’re in Europe, especially France, you MUST get them.

  64. Renee P says:

    Chocolate for breakfast! I do that much more than I should!

  65. Lisa K. says:

    Snow everywhere! It’s beautiful- until it melts & turns to slush..

  68. Sondra says:

    I never really got into video games, but since getting an iPhone I have become ADDICTED to Mexican train. (It’s a domino game)
    And chocolate is appropriate for ANY meal. πŸ˜‰

  69. Tiffany says:

    Since single’s awareness day is coming up….should I treat myself to chocolate mousse, or tiramisu?

  70. Sofia says:

    I wish I had my NES again to play duck hunt and Super Mario Bros.!

  71. jessica davis says:

    Can’t live without mascara! Love super Mario brothers. Used to be addicted to dragonvale on my phone! Lol

  72. Jennifer Ryder says:

    My favorite city is Honolulu, and boy do I wish I was there now instead of dealing with the almost 2 feet of snow dumped on us by Nemo.

  73. Melodyy says:

    I love Plants Vs. Zombies, SSX, and Halo! πŸ™‚ I do- I really love Plants vs zombies. YES chocolate for breakfast! I love LA πŸ™‚

  81. Pam says:

    Chocolate for breakfast? Of course!

  82. Elly says:

    Chocolate for breakfast is always good. (Chocolate croissants, nutella, chocolate chip pancakes, you name it.) Hmm, wonder how chocolate chips would have worked in the waffles we made this morning while totally snowed in…

  83. Kristen says:

    Chocolate for breakfast – definitely a yes! Usually I love Nutella or something, but this morning I had M&Ms and a chai tea latte, and it was fabulous.

  84. KPrice says:

    Just had my hair cut and styled and it’s hella huge. But fun. Thanks for a chance at a giveaway!

    I love to play video games!! I have XBox360, Wii, PSVita, DS Lite and I also play on my phone! I really dont have a “favorite” game but there is one game on the Xbox I really hope (pray) they come out with a part deux “Shadow Complex”. Thee dopest side scroll game since Metroid. In my opinion anyways. My fav game right now on the iPhone/Android is Hatchi. It’s very similar to Tamagotchi and I am hooked!

  113. Mags says:

  114. Eva says:

    THE video game for me (at the moment, at least) is Dream of Pixels. It is an awesome tetris-in-reverse idea, and Tabs could play it on an iPad! (I think there’s even a cat in one of the puzzles.)

  115. Rebecca Cash says:

    I need a lighted make up mirror….or a room with better natural light!

  116. christine says:

    I’ve just switched to almond milk to try and improve my skin!

  121. Shana says:

    The only game I play on my phone is Fruit Ninja, and I’m terrible at it.

  122. vnssa906 says:

    Chocolate for breakfast: absolutely yes.

  124. Rita O. says:

  125. Melitina says:

    BTW – my favorite concealer: korres pomegranate.

    Biggest beauty concern? Same as its been for a decade – clear beautiful skin. Im not crazy about the way I look in the first place, its almost impossible for me to feel good about myself when i have acne. Which unfortunately is almost always :\

  143. melissa says:

    Current skin problem is dry flaky skin driving me nuts right now especially because I’ve always had combo skin until now that is πŸ™

  144. PS says:

    I like Maybeline Instant Age Rewind for under eye concealer too. It’s better than a lot of the expensive ones out there. Have a great weekend everyone!

  145. Alexandra F says:

    Chocolate for breakfast is always a yes. Favorite concealer is eve pearl salmon concealer and biggest beauty concern is dry skin since its winter.

  146. Kate says:

    Hey Karen! Chocolate is good for anytime of day!

    Right now, my skin is super dry including my eyelids, but I still get hormonal breakouts! I”m looking for some super moisturizing foundation and eyeshadow that won’t go on all patchy and accentuate my dry spots.
    I love your blog and reading about Tabs and his adventures!

  147. Tina F. says:

    Happy weekend and thanks for this opportunity Karen =). I’d love to be able to stock up on some skincare products. I plan on celebrating Chinese New Year’s by making dumplings and also play some games. Right now I’m obsessed with Temple Run 2 on my phone lol – and Bakery Story, which tells me that you can eat sugary goods any time of the day, even chocolate πŸ˜‰

    Biggest beauty concerns these days are definitely smile lines – I am not even 30 yet and I already have them on both sides of my mouth πŸ™

  162. Vanessa says:

    My biggest beauty concern is blending my blush out nicely. I used to be able to well…I’m using a nice quality MAC blush with a Target brand brush that was descent.

    What’s changed? Is my blush getting patchy because of some strange change in oiliness / sweaty-ness of my face? Or has my cheapy brush finally given up…?

    Makes me think… hahaha!

  163. H. says:

    I’ve wasted a lot of time playing the sims, angry birds, and words with friends on my phone!

    I’m really excited for Benefit’s relaunch! All their packaging is too cute!

  165. LauraA says:

    Craziest makeup look was based on an album cover from my favorite band–orange, white, black cover. Palette for eyes was orange, white, and black–lips were a darker orange as well. No blush, really.

  179. April says:

    I love playing the LEGO Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings on XBOX 360. I usually play Fruit Ninja or Triple Town on my phone. I have to limit the amount of games I have on my phone cause they can get addicting.

  180. Stef Smith says:

    I’ve been using acetone to remove my nail polish lately, works beautifully on removing polish, but it has torn up my cuticles something fierce! Lotion, lotion, lotion!

  194. mn says:

    Tabs immersed in gravy- reminds me of the ride at Hershey Park where they go through the history of Hershey’s kisses… there’s a part that I call ‘the river of chocolate’ and fancy myself swimming through it, or more like gulping my way through it. I can imagine Tabs also enjoying his version of the ‘river of chocolate’ fantasy as ‘river of gravy’.

  195. Emily says:

    Monaco is my favorite city…. Or should it be country? Would it be wrong to call it a city if its the entire country? I wonder what the addresses must be like…. Oh gosh now I’m confused.

  196. annette says:

    I’m waiting for a baby shower to start.

  197. Heidi says:

    It seems like Tabs and I have really similar weekend plans.

  198. Mei says:

    Hi Karen! To be honest, I don’t play many video games…but I love anything Mario! Sometimes I play games on my phone, mostly Angry Birds (they crack me UP). Chocolate for breakfast = you’re doing something right in your life!!! πŸ™‚ hahahaha! Favorite city….I haven’t gone to many, but I do love Greece when I visited in HS. No under-eye concealer! Still young, get lots of sleep (hello unemployment! hah!). I don’t know, I have a hard time committing to one concealer bc I don’t think I need one yet. But in the next few months, I’ll probably be hitting Sephora for one. A brush I can’t live without is the MAC 239 and 217. I can’t do any eye makeup without those two brushes, they’re freakin amazing! Craziest makeup look for me recently would have to be colored eyeliner. I bought the Urban Decay Ocho Loco set and the Smoked Eye Pencil set. I absolutely love eyeliner, and I’ve never incorporated so many colors into my makeup before! And my beauty concerns lately are my scars. I have my acne kind of under control, but the scars are still there!
    Anyways, I hope you have a fantastic rest of your weekend Karen!

  199. Lydia says:

    Chocolate breakfast? YES!

  203. Joanne E. says:

    A definite yes on chocolate for breakfast!

  204. Katherine says:

  206. Sara says:

    Of course chocolate for breakfast!

  207. Anna says:

    If I could have chocolate for every meal of the day and still not gain weight, I would do it!!

    Also, my favorite under-eye concealer is Bobbi Brown corrector! Amazing stuff.

  208. Virginie says:

    If there was one item I could not live without, is the concealer…And recently I made a great discovery in that field!!
    Cheap and suuuuuper efficient. Excellent coverage, nor too dry or too moisturizing, and the most important, it gives you this illuminating halo around your eyes….It’ssssss …..Dermablend concealer. Run buy it, I looove it!!!

    Beauty concern: skincare + antiaging, makeup that doesn’t add years or accentuate fine lines

    Happy Mardi Gras from New Orleans!! Maybe you should do a mardi gras inspired makeup to give us some ideas for Fat Tuesday….

  225. A. Mar says:

    I happily admit to being an RPG nerd. I went back and played Neverwinter Nights recently as a friend just purchased me new copies of a lot of old games. Oh, nostalgia. You and I shall be friends.

    Favorite city? Too hard! Of all the places I’ve been, I think of Reykjavík and Vancouver the most. Followed by Hobart. Okay, I don’t really have an order. I love them all. I love cities with quiet days and loud nights with relatively mild weather whenever it doesn’t snow (as I do love the snow). Those are my ideal places.

  226. Jeena says:

    I’m in love with the Professor Layton series!

  257. I would have to say my favorite city has to be NYC but I recently went to Vancouver BC and fell in love. Such a beautiful place

  258. Chloe says:

  272. Maria says:

    Chocolate for breakfast = YES, ABSOLUTELY! Fave chocolates of the moment include Lindt Hint of Salt bars and Godiva strawberry truffles. Yum!

    I think the best undereye concealer is a good, moisturizing eye cream applied under a luminous, brightening foundation (I use YSL Teint Éclat foundation, which is phenomenal). YSL’s Touche Éclat pens are great for when you need that extra oomph.

  273. Lisa says:

I live in Michigan and it was only a matter of time before a new pair of these fuzzy boots surfaced in my closet… but I saw them at the store and it was like an impulse buy! They are the short bailey button style, and they are freaking PINK! They’re for a breast cancer collection so I feel good about buying them, since a large chunk of the money goes to research to help fight breast cancer! BUT, again, OMG THEYRE FREAKING PINK πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I’m feeling lucky… so maybe this is my week?! :0 haha πŸ˜€

  318. Leonora says:

    Hi Karen,
    I want to first thank you for the amazing posts and how much they help me before I buy make up products. I’m new to your blog, as I am new to make up as well. In the past months I started getting into make up after seeing how much make up can boost your confidence and change your mood. I’m in the process of divorcing with my ex and only after coming out of this long relationship I started looking at life and especially myself with a different eye. I don’t have a lot of high end products as I can’t afford them and a $50 sephora card would help me get some of the basics. Either way, I’m trying to save so one day I’ll be able to have all the beauty products on my wish-list. Even if I don’t win, I want to thank you again for helping me see myself differently and being confident about myself.

  319. jenn s. says:

    Although I’m a native Floridian, I think that Seattle is my favorite city as far as beauty and culture are concerned, and New Orleans is also a favorite for its character and culture. However, I felt safer in Seattle! Both cool places to visit!

    I haven’t been able to shop for a while so a $50 G/C would be a great way to start stocking up on the Spring Collections. I’ve have my eye on some beautiful Too Faced products!! Speaking of Too Faced, Winter has been so harsh on my skin this year, it’s needed a lot of TLC. I’m really loving the Too Faced BB Cream. Most of the BB’s I’ve tried have been too drying for my skin, but Too Faced BB keeps me feeling hydrated all day long. As a moisture booster, I like to keep a mini bottle of hydrating spray in my purse for these LONG Winter days. Right now, I’m using Dermalogicas Antioxidant HydraMist. It not only hydrates, it takes care of any redness that may pop up during the cold days. Loves! <3

    Your blog is my 'go-to'. I Thank You for taking the time for us Beauty Junkies.

  335. Chocolate for any time is always a yes.

    I always play games on my phone, but since I got a tablet I’ve been using that. My current favorites are Rise of Blobs and Heroes Call.

    I actually just got LORAC Touch-Up To Go and I’m enjoying it. I’ve been iffy on concealers because it always feels like I’m using painter’s putty or something, but this is very light and blendable.
