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

Have I told you about Tabs’ new favorite way to wake me up?


He jumps on the bed, walks across my chest and stands perpendicular to my throat with his tummy draped across my neck.

He waits for a moment or two like that, and then, PLOP! — lays down and starts purring like a Mack truck until my eyes open.

Imagine a furry, 20-pound infinity scarf holding you hostage in bed, and basically, you get my mornings for the past week. πŸ™‚

No Tabby alarm clock today, though. When I woke up, all I found was the postcard above on El Hub’s pillow with a note telling me to take the day off.

Whatever you’re up to today, I hope it’s fun.

And before you head out on your adventures, don’t forget to enter this weekend’s Sephora eCard giveaway.

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!”

  5. Melissa says:

    I have two lip glosses in my purse right now, plus a lipstick and a lip balm.

  6. Maria J. Cardoza says:

    When it comes to eye makeup application the most challenging thing for me is Blending in the crease seamlessly and getting the perfect smokey effect.

  7. Angela says:

    My cooking skills? I can’t even cook eggs without burning them if that gives you any indication…

  8. Cara says:

    Have a great weekend!

    Hi Karen! I have Illamasqua’s Stance on my toes right now in an attempt to feel a little spring-like.

  13. Grace says:

    The most challenging thing about eye makeup application is actually eyeshadows. Not liquid liner, not mascara, but eyeshadow, of all things πŸ˜› The main reason is probably because I have hidden inner eyelids (aka inner double eyelids aka double eyelids that turn into single eyelids near the inner parts of the eye).

  14. JPee says:

    Sometimes when I am doing a winged-liner and I mess up it then becomes a smokey eye πŸ™‚

  15. Heidi says:

    I always wear eyeliner. Since I wear glasses, mascara alone is not enough to properly emphasize the eyes.

  16. MARICEL PABLO says:

    I’m kinda newbie in this make up world, seriously!!! don’t even know how put the right eye shadow combination…i live mostly in my lipgloss, lipbalm. And i need to learn because it requires in my job. Thanks to your blog. i learned a lot.

  17. ReneeP says:

    My cooking skills are awesome if my 3 year old son is elsewhere. When he is home, I am a hot nervous wreck!

  18. leetal says:

    always wanted to learn how to cook better

    My kids and husband are all sick. I’ll dream about what I would do with this Sephora card while I take care of them!

  20. Ingrid says:

    I have Milani’s Tip Toe pink on my toes right now!
    P.S. Karen, I love your blog and read it everyday, but have never had the nerve to say hello and tell you how much I enjoy it!

  21. rachel says:

    My cooking skills are excellent~ too bad theres no room in the shoebox I live in to actually cook!

    I baked 50 cupcakes yesterday πŸ™‚

    What I’m loving about my life right now are my babies (3 German Shepherds and 1 hound mix, 2 of the 4 are rescues) and the new Hourglass Ambient powders I picked up!

  30. jaymie says:

    Most challenging thing in eye makeup application is blending and color coordination. Also, favorite pop tart flavor is good old strawberry with frosting πŸ™‚

  31. Bec says:

    I once had 13 lip gloss on or around my desk at work… ooops!

  32. colleen boudreau says:

    eyeliner is the most challenging to me.

  33. Laura says:

    I want to feel pretty inside and out!

  34. Jennifer Rivera says:

    I always wear eyeliner because I feel it makes my eyes look more bigger & it defines them since I wear glasses. I find applying liquid liner a challenge and I still can’t do a nice cat eye.

  35. laura says:

    I recently learned to cook karaage. It’s super easy and delicious!

  36. Rachael says:

    my eye shadow layering and blending skills are a hot mess. How bout a tutorial????

  37. Julia says:

    I always wear eyeliner, but it’s also the hardest part of my routine.I’m a pretty good cook but sometimes everything goes wrong!

  38. Paula says:

    Love cooking! Been vegan around 20 years, so cooking has always been kind of a necessity. Becoming a fragrance junkie of late. Just got some samples from Sephora a couple days ago, trying to find something new. Might try the Tom Ford White Patchouli today.

  39. Pam says:

    Brown Sugar Pop Tarts are my favorite!

  40. Annie says:

    Thanks for the giveaway!
    The most challenging thing for my eye makeup application is blending. Whenever I try to do more than a couple of colors I end up looking like I got a black eye. I keep trying though, I might just need better brushes.

  41. Elly says:

    Heh, eyeliner is definitely the most challenging thing for eye makeup. Which means I basically never wear it (unless it’s because I’m experimenting with makeup looks with my best friend and we don’t intend to leave the house…)

  42. Ruchita says:

    Tabs looks great in a hat!

  43. Nicole says:

    eyeshadow placement is not my strong suit :<

  44. KPrice says:

    What a great picture of Tabs! It totally cheered me up. Thanks for a chance at a giveaway. Have a good weekend.

  45. Toby says:

    I have a really hard time with undereye circles. No matter what I do or what product I use (Burberry, KA SSE, highlighting concealers), within seconds I’ll be looking tired & haggard once again. πŸ™

  46. Jen B says:

    My cooking skills are below average, but my crock pot skills are awesome!

  47. April says:

    I have hooded eyelids so putting on eyeliner is always an adventure. There are days where it goes to places on my eyes that leave me wondering how it got there. Still trying to master that ever elusive cat eye flick. One day!

  48. Laura says:

    My favorite pop tarts were unfrosted strawberry!

  49. marcia says:

    I havebeen following love your help …thank you for helping us beauty junkies get involved on give aways..much appreciated..sephora is my addiction

  50. Colleen says:

    Listening to Dire Straits…still sound amazing after almost thirty years. πŸ™‚
    I love eye makeup application! So fun. I have noticed though, that modern eye makeup seems to almost require a primer. It wasn’t like that before. Thinking of getting some…
    Have a lovely weekend!

  51. steph b says:

    It would take far too long to count the lip glosses in various bags!

  52. Alyssa says:

    Brown sugar pop tarts are the only ones that I eat!! Lol as for a cook I’m a good cook and a great baker… Or so everyone says! I have about 100 lip glosses due to teeny splurges and Christmas and my bday but I only carry around about 10 essentials with me.

  53. Susie says:

    I have worn makeup most all of my life. Your traditional foundation, mascara, eye liner.
    I am 57 years old and have a very HOODED fallen eye and I just don’t know how to do my eyes. I think I would be laughed at by everyone now at this age to do something different but would like to try. πŸ™‚
    Cool giveaway,

  54. I wear eyeliner every single day. I feel so plain without it.

    I love to cook but never have the time! I work nights so on my day off I love to mess up the kitchen and make something yummy and pinterest inspired!

  56. Ellen says:

    I’d say my cooking skills are a 7/10. My husband’s skills? 10/10! I’m a lucky girl πŸ™‚

  57. Carolyn N. says:

    I can’t cook to save my life. πŸ™

    Okay that’s an exaggeration. I can cook ramen, eggs, rice, and microwave food to sustain my life but that’s about it.

  58. everywheresafe says:

    Going to red lobster today! Can’t wait!

  59. Yay for Saturday giveaways! I’d rate my cooking an 8 for the things I know I do well, and a 6 for overall culinary skillzzz, lol πŸ™‚

  60. sweeks1980 says:

    My cooking skills are average, but I am proud of my baking prowess πŸ™‚

  61. Kripa says:

    I’ve been working on my cooking skills this week! πŸ™‚ I’ve been making egg sandwiches like crazy, and I made lasagna and deep dish cookies!

  62. onegreatsmile says:

    My dream hairstyle would require thousands of dollars worth of extensions and a live in stylist. I don’t have near enough of my OWN hair to do anything with it!

  63. Mandy says:

    I prefer to wear eyeliner, but the one thing I always wear is mascara

  64. Ashley says:

    Tomorrows my birthday!!!

  65. Miso says:

    I think eye make up for Asian eyes is such a challenge!! And having one heavier eyelid on one side makes it even worse!!

  66. Isabel says:

    I’m thinking of buying an orange-y liquid lipstick from Hourglass for the spring! Too bad it’s still snowing where I live =/

  67. Xero says:

    Chocolate chip pop tarts!

  68. Hannah S. says:

    I love cooking! As a college student it’s such great stress relief πŸ˜€ plus it’s fun to get creative with the stuff you have left in the cupboard and concoct delicious things.

  69. Kimmie says:

    Please post more pictures of your kitty!

  70. Sara says:

    Zoya in “Sarah” for Valentine’s Day.

  71. Tovah says:

    Best beauty product I ever bought: The Clarisonic Mia. I have really sensitive skin and this thing does all it says and more.

  72. Amaris says:

    Mixing my eyeshadows are the hardest for me!

  73. Andrea says:

    I would rate my cooking skills at a 5. I don’t cook that often but when I do cook I get compliments from my husband so I cook at least kind of good. lol

    The most challenging part of eye makeup application for me is liner. I either put it on too think to where I look like a raccoon or it doesn’t come out right and I look like a clown.

    I love the fact that I have been married for two years this past Valentines Day! Time has flown by because it feels like we’ve only been married a year. I keep wondering where the time went. Feels like I was asleep the whole time.

    I love strawberry poptarts. I have three lip glosses in my purse and one chapstick. I like the variety. I wear eyeliner every time I wear makeup so I’d say 3-4 days out of the week. I don’t have any polish on my tootsies at the moment (hides face in shame). I don’t have any polish on my finger nails either, trying to give them some breathing time. My dream hairstyle is shoulder length curls that I can manage.

  75. Susan says:

    I’m currently sooo excited that MAC’s Archie’s Girls is going to be released here in Australia soon. I absolutely loved your review with the crazy wigs and comic strips!!!!

  76. Bells says:

    I’m not the best cook, but I’m an excellent baker! It’s too bad I currently don’t have an adequate space for real pastry baking πŸ™

  77. Sunny says:

    LOL I love Tabs’ new way of waking you up! Muffin starts scratching the door and meowing miserably in the morning so that her daddy would take pity on her and let her in. Tango would mostly meow out of hunger, so I’ve got two alarm clocks here πŸ˜‰

  78. Jana Ricketts says:

    I have coral polish on my toes right now and as most people said,eyeliner is the most challenging :/

  79. kelly m says:

    AAAk! Having one of the weeks where nothing goes right and am really stressed about getting everything done in time before my 1st baby arrives this May. Would love to be able to win.

  80. Alison says:

    I don’t have any nail polish on my toes at the moment. I usually try to give them a little bit of a “break” in the winter, since no one really sees my toes anyway!

  81. Bunny says:

    I’m a pretty good cook, but I will forever be getting mascara under/ over my eye while applying it!

  82. Nicole says:

    I’d say I’m a good cook – I make my own bread and go out of my way to try new recipes on a regular basis.

  83. Mandy says:

    Have to schedule dental surgery. Painful!

  84. Danyelle says:

    I have a pretty bright red on my toes right now, but they really need to be redone though shhhhh!

  85. Judy says:

    So many things I want to try from Sephora….breakin’ my bank….

  86. Patti says:

    Tabs rocks!

  87. marlena says:

    When it comes to applying eyeshadow, I do not have much lid space to work with so I tend to struggle with creating a clean crease and trying to avoid making my eyeshadow muddy.

  88. Melissa says:

    Oh, I really want the nars light reflecting powder!

  89. Yukari says:

    I think my next Sephora purchase is going to be NARS Lipgloss in “Easy Lover”. It’s such a pretty shade! But I already have more lipglosses than I probably need.. lol

  90. Kimberly Alfaro says:

    Hi Karen…So I just got a new laptop and your site is the first one I visited since powering it on! Loving this give away!! I’d really like some new benefit products:)FINGERS CROSSED

  98. Samantha says:

    Love love love Sephora but been out of work so I couldn’t buy any. Could really use a refill on some classic colours! <3

  99. Vanessa F says:

    I’ve worked to be a fairly good cook. I’m beginner level but I like to create new recipes from my usual favorite ingredients. Plus, I really try to eat whole, healthy food so cooking from home is easiest way to eat a good diet.

  100. Justine says:

    Noooooo, it’s snowing again today!

  101. Christina says:

    Oy, my cooking skills are “eh.” My poor kids and husband have to deal with that…

  102. Ginelle says:

  103. Joanna says:

    Going to spend sometime with a few friends tomorrow! I can’t wait. It’s been a while since I went out. So excited about it πŸ™‚

  104. Rina says:

    LOVE this blog!!

    I can cook.. I’m a chef so it would be pretty bad if I couldn’t!

  105. Rachel says:

    My biggest struggle with eyeshadow is using darker colors! It just ends up looking muddy and messy, no matter what I do!

  106. jen. says:

    My cooking skills are awesome when it comes to Italian food, decent when it comes to everything else.

    My eye makeup downfall continues to be eyeliner… I’ve gotten better at tightlining thanks to your tips, though. πŸ™‚

  107. Agata says:

    Tabs Alarm Clock? Too cute! I think winged eyeliner is still a bit challenging for for and also I still have never tried to apply false eyelashes…I just got a home gel nail polish kit so am trying it out for the first time with red nail polish, we will see if it really lasts 2 weeks.

  108. Jenny D says:

    I’m an adequate cook – but a great baker. And a decorator! I make gorgeous cakes and such. But no fondant – all buttercream baby!

    I always wear eyeliner.

  120. jane says:

    i definitely need to start cooking more and stop eating out!

  121. Solangel says:


  122. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    My husband has taken a sudden interest in cooking ~ not sure if he’s trying to tell me something (like my cooking is terrible & I’m the not the great chef I think I am?!)…
    Have a great weekend!

  123. Mackenzie says:

    I’m thinking about dying my hair while I study Charter jurisprudence on legal rights and drink beer, since I broke up with my (ex)man on v-day and I’m cool like that on a Saturday night in my bathrobe. Just need cheesecake to channel my inner Golden Girl.

  124. Daniella says:

    I am a pretty good cook but sadly I have not learned how to cook Mexican food. Making good authentic mexican food is complicated, tedious cooking, but I should have my mama teach me because it’s so delish. I can cook other cuisines really well. As far as my baking skills are concerned, those are nonexistent. I have ruined almost very cake I have tried to bake.
    Eye makeup: I cannot blend properly to save my life. I wish I could do a cut crease thing, but I cannot manage it!

  125. Charisse says:

    I still struggle with making my eyeliner even! Guess I just need to practice.

  126. Carina says:

    My favorite pop tart flavor is cinnamon

  127. Saffron says:

    That picture of Tabs is adorable. I’m PMSing something crazy right now so I saw it and teared up and had one of those moments where you’re looking at yourself from outside of yourself and just kinda shaking your head in embarrassment. πŸ˜› Thanks for the contest!

  128. Janet says:

    After 2 uses, Nars Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder has become one of my must have items.

  129. Patty & Dickens says:

    I’m a pretty good cook and love making vegetable soup. We have good, hot French bread with it. So good in cold weather!

  130. Shana says:

    Do they still have Smores Pop Tarts? Those were my faves. πŸ™‚

  131. Latisha says:

    i loooooooove pop tarts !

  132. Karla says:

    Hola hola! πŸ™‚

  133. Alice says:

    My favorite poptart flavor is strawberry and on my toes I have on Zoya’s Elodie.

  134. Lisa K. says:

    I love to cook – and I married a professional chef! He’s in the kitchen right now,
    making a winter pear tart. Lucky me!

  135. Brandy d says:

    Been entering for a while hope I win!!!!!!! Would love to use for new makeup need it desperately!!

  136. Ashley says:

    I struggle with eye makeup in general since I have hooded eyelids and it’s so difficult making it look right!

  137. Sidney P says:

    I am a pop tart snob. I only eat the frosted strawberry ones with the rainbow sprinkles in the frosting. I’ve tried a few other kinds, but they don’t quite meet the mark the way the strawberry ones do.

  138. Nora says:

    So glad the valentines day madness is over

  139. elle says:

    I might paint my toenails mint green with black tips later…

  140. Julie says:

    I love the cinnamon brown sugar pop tarts! The limited edition Pumpkin Pie ones are great, too!

    I wish I had Alexa Chung’s hair!

  146. Kimmwc03 says:

  147. Mireya says:

    I’ve always hated Pop Tarts. Toaster Strudel all the way.

    Not professional chef good but pretty good. I’ve been in charge of 4-5 course holiday meals since I was 11/12. My sister on the other hand…can barely boil water.

    I’m a horrible cook, and my favorite Pop Tart flavor is unfrosted brown sugar cinnamon. =]

  150. Corey says:

    I have 2 lip glosses (clear shimmer and light pink) in my purse right now and 1 fresh sugar lip treatment. I usually have more than that but I just cleaned out my purse.

  151. Olivia says:

    I’m a great cook! I cook for my boyfriend all the time : )

  152. GB says:

    I haven’t had a Pop Tart in years, but I always did love the frosted strawberry ones.

  153. Kylie says:

    Applying eyeliner is definitely the hardest for me. One eye is always perfect and the other eye is always wonky. So when I go to fix the perfect eye to match the wonky eye, I then have two wonky eyes. Hahaha! πŸ˜›

  154. Amanda says:

    Tabs as Indiana Jones made me giggle. Love it πŸ™‚

  155. Katrina says:

    I have essie peach daiquiri on my toes right now πŸ™‚

  158. Sakura says:

    I am guilty of wearing the same coral shade of nail polish since the summer! It reminds me of the warmer days by the pool. I don’t want to change the color now. Maybe when summer comes.

  159. Gina says:

    I absolutely LOVE your sundays with Tabs…i’ve showed it to everyone my boyfriend my bff &c lol

  161. Esthefany says:

    I LOVE Makeup, but I prefer to wear a natural face than a full coverage makeup! I always put on eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara no matter where I’m going!

  162. Jordan says:

    I wear eyeliner about everyday, and i’m not much of a cook at all! πŸ™‚

  163. Jennifer G says:

    S’mores pop tarts are my favorite!

  166. Rosa says:

    I have too many lip glosses in my purse! lol!

    My cooking skills used to be mediocre at best, but the Food Network, and specifically Alton Brown, changed all that. I learned techniques and the reasoning ebhind them, and it made ALL the difference.

  168. Chloe says:

    eyeliner will always be a struggle for me :/ thanks for the giveaway!

    Not a lip gloss person. But I have one lipstick, 3 tinted lip balms, and aquaphor.

  173. Jasmine says:

    I don’t wear eyeliner every day, it’s more for when I’m going out – but I should really quit being so lazy and wear it more often!

  174. Lydia L. says:

    Blue Ivy Rocks!!!!

  175. L K says:

    Hi Karen, really enjoying your blog, keep it coming!!

  177. Janet says:

    I think my cooking skills are decent. Trying to eat clean, so I’m eating vegetarian most days πŸ™‚

  195. Abbie says:

    I have learned so much from your blog.

  196. Tina F. says:

    Yay! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity again. The hardest thing for me in terms of eye makeup was to figure out where to apply eyeshadow due to being Asian and having hooded lids. I just don’t have as much “canvas” lol and my first attempts at eye makeup were terrifying. Luckily, I’ve improved πŸ˜‰

  197. Sarah P says:

    At the moment I have my fave shade of green (olive-ish) nail polish on my toes that my brother hates and continuously harrasses me to change it because ‘it hurts his eyes’… boys… >.<

  198. Cara says:

    My dream hairstyle would be a really short cut, but short hair doesn’t fit my face shape very well.

  199. Lauren W says:

    I’m currently searching for a future wedding nail polish color… All the nudes/pinks/French manis are SOOOOO boring! I’d love to have a green or orange or something fun!

  200. Christy Ann says:

    thanks for another great giveaway! i’m turning 29 in a few weeks, and i have mixed feelings about it. :/ i read something like: stan lee is 90 years old. which means he created “spiderman” when he was 40. which means you haven’t even started to live your life yet. —

    ^ that helps me with my days. πŸ™‚ hope your weekend is treating you well!

  262. Tabs looks like a hunk in that hat! I wear eyeliner every day, so if I won I’d probably use part of the giftcard to splure on more UD 24/7 eyeliners. My dream hairstyle would be for my long layers to hold any amount of curl. I also really wish I could french braid so I could do an inside-out french like a faux mohawk. Sigh…a girl can dream.

  275. Susan says:

    Most challenging? Definitely eyeliner! My eyes are on the small side, and hidden behind glasses. Eyeliner would give them some much-needed emphasis, but oof! I’ve given up on pencils and am experimenting with gels and pens, but…I can’t really see what I’m doing, and both sides turn out uneven. I usually end up smearing most of it off with a wet tissue, for that “almost lined” look! Schmexy!:D

I just bought the Laura Mercier eye shadow sticks in khaki and rose gold and I’m trying to get the hang of application. I bought a purple Clinique Chubby Stick Eye Shadow last night but I don’t think I’ll keep it. I just don’t wear purple eye shadow.

    I think waking up to Tabs’ purring and kneading would be a fabulous way to start the day! (I adore that cat.)

    As an aside, I have a weakness for Strawberry Pop-Tars, NOT the frosted variety. πŸ˜‰

    I currently have 9 lipglosses, 3 lipsticks, 2 lip balms, and one lip stain in my purse right now…. I have a problem.

  353. becca says:

    I could use a new lipstick!

  354. Maria says:

    For me, the trickiest thing about applying makeup is my small eyes. They aren’t tiny, but I need to be careful about applying color or eyeliner to my bottom lashline or my eyes can be overwhelmed and look tired. Does anyone have any suggestions on this note?

  355. Sara says:

    My kitty loves to wake me up my sticking her wet little nose in my ear…on the one hand, it’s adorable, on the other hand, EEK wet willy!!

  360. Nicolle says:

    I’m a decent cook but a very good baker. I love my sweets and my makeup <3…!*

  361. The most challenging thing for me with eye makeup application is adding the right amount of makeup to the outer-v of my eye. I just can’t seem to do it right, I think I blend too much.

  362. Cristy says:

    Today it’s my hubby 37 Birthday!!! He had so so much work all week(Lawyer life) that he wanted stay all day in his Pj’s and eat something delish and chocoflan for dessert! (He’s snoring at the moment he!)

  363. Cristy says:

  364. christine says:

    I always manage to accumulate 5-10 lip products in my makeup bag. Funny how that happens.

  365. stacy says:

    I never wear lipgloss anymore.

  366. Steph says:

    I really need to improve my blending skillz. I’m always dissatisfied with my work.

  367. Erika says:

    The only thing I am wearing on my toes is OPI Nail Envy! I decided it was time to give them a break!

  368. Nikki, UK says:

    What a splendiferous, fantabulous treat!
    Right now I have Nars Purple Rain on my feet.
    There’s also a cameo from OPI on my toes
    And here on my fingers there’s a polish that glows!
    As for the lipgloss, I’ve got glosses galore,
    I grab at least six before I’m out the door.
    There’s red ones, pink ones and even glitter pops,
    To add a little sparkle to my chops,
    And the cooking, well, I’m quite the super chef
    (Even if I do say so myself).
    I love a slow stew or a scrumptious roast,
    But I’m also partial to a little cheese on toast.


  369. Heather says:

    I’m not much of a cook, but I have a few recipes.

  370. Bria says:

    Haha while I’m sure you find it pretty irritating, it’s still very cute that tabs wakes you up like that!

  381. Kels-Belle says:

  400. Vanessa says:

    I love cats so much!:)

  401. Stephanie says:

    My cooking skills are pretty darn good with a recipe. I don’t have enough creativity without a recipe (although I can modify one easily). Haven’t failed on any recipe that I’ve tried.

  402. Kristina says:

    I broke out my Archie’s Betty eyeshadow palette today! I am so happy with it!

  405. kirsten says:

    i made avocado pasta tonight!

  406. Katie says:

    Sparkly purple toenail polish πŸ™‚

  408. Irene says:

    I really think my cooking skills are pretty good. I can follow directions pretty well. So as long as I can do that then it usually comes out good.

  409. Kristen says:

    The best pop tart flavor is DEFINITELY s’mores! I’ll admit I’m a chocoholic, but they’re SO GOOD.

  410. Ashley Miller says:

    I’m more of a baker than a cook!

  411. brittany says:

    LA on sunday! woooO!

  412. As a busy momma of 3 who constantly does dishes, cleaning, baths, etc., I am in LOVE, LOVE, LOVE with Mally’s gel nail system. It truly is BULLETPROOF!! First time I used it, I had to remove after 2 weeks — and not a single chip. Trying it again with a much bolder color! πŸ™‚

  413. Karina says:

    Woow, sunday funday!!!

  420. Addie Cain says:

    “A College Student’s Sephora Woes”
    Sometimes a girl just needs something new
    An eyeshadow, a blush, a liner or two
    The boyfriend won’t pay, and the parents say “no”, but alas as beauty addicts we just have to go
    When the mothership calls, you best pay a visit
    It’s a shame Sephora can be so expensive, isn’t it?

  421. Michelle A says:

    Still can’t master the cat eye πŸ™ I’ve got mad skillz in da kitchen tho !!

  422. Sadhana says:

    I wear eyeliner every day. I usually smudge and smoke it out a bit for work. Still trying to master the cat-eye, myself!

  423. June L. says:

    Whoa, it took me forever to scroll down!

    Well, I’m a poor cook and a poor time keeper – burnt eggs and messy, hasty eyeliner isn’t the best combination!~ hehe.

    Have a great week! ^___^

  424. Evelyn says:

    I’m not a horrible cook, I usually can scramble up something tasty, even better with a cookbook! I’m still trying to master the flick of liner but generally I manage. I have Chanel in Malice on my toes, I love this color!

  434. Andrea N says:

    I love the Nude is in!

  435. Audrey says:

    I do my make up in the car a lot (don’t worry i only do it when I’m a passenger) and since I do a cat eye look with gel liner and a brush, that can be quite the disaster! Haha :/

  436. Janelle says:

    I rate my cooking skills at a 6.5. Not a noob, but not a masterchef.

  437. Gina says:
