Two Ways to Win a $50 eGift Card From Sephora!


Uh, oh… Looks like someone partied a little too hard this weekend. πŸ™‚

I don’t know if you knew this about Tabs, but he’s actually part Irish on his father’s side.

Yup, he totally gets into St. Patrick’s Day every year. Green gravy, Feline Greenies, the whole nine yards.

We have to celebrate at home now, though, because he got banned from both of Novato’s Irish bars, which, of course, means I have to plan the party.

Okay, ’nuff of that. Happy Saturday and St. Patrick’s Day weekend!

I haven’t seen any rainbows or pots of gold yet this morning, but I did find a Sephora eGift card giveaway…

Good luck! Details to enter are down below.

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!”

    Hello Tabs and Karen! Who knew Tabs had some Irish blood in his!?

    I am not sure if I am celebrating St Patrick’s Day yet. But I am definitely going to paint my nails green. My favorite green nail polish is Mojito Madness from last summer’s collection. I never wear green eye shadow but I should get on the trend with the whole emerald color of the year thing. Have an awesome weekend!

  4. Elizabeth says:

    I only own 1 green eyeshadow! But hopefully I’ll make up for my lack of green makeup with my nails!

  15. Susie says:

    I have NEVER worn green shadow. I’m 57 and have never gotten into shadows BUT I want too. I have heavy hooded eyes. I had them years ago and didn’t know how to do makeup and now my heavy hooded eyes are exremely droopy, wrinkled and crap. I would still like to learn. Which I had a teacher. πŸ™‚

    I’ve never been to Ireland, but I am friends with an Irish guy whose name is Paddy. His defining characteristic is that he’s always late for everything, airplanes, pub crawls, you name it, so much that “pulling a Paddy” is now a byword in our social circle.

    Ooooh, I would love to enter! There are no Sephora stores in my country. Thanks, Karen!

    I won’t be celebrating St. patrick’s day, seeing as I’m not American or Irish, but I have been to Ireland. I went to Dublin with my family a few years ago. I really liked it. It was clearly a city but it wasn’t huge and busy and suffocating, a feeling that I sometimes get in large cities. It felt more like several small towns that formed a big town together. I remember wanting to stay. The atmosphere was great and the people were nice. πŸ™‚

    Happy St. Patrick’s day to you and Tabs! I don’t know what it entails exactly, but I hope you have a good one!

  26. Nora says:

    I love green eyeshadow that has some gold through it.

    I wear a lot of green clothes but I’ve never worn green eyeshadow. I need to branch out.

  35. Alison says:

    I wore the green shade in the UD Smoked palette last week, but it doesn’t show up super green on me, so I don’t know if it really counts.

  36. Megan says:

    I wore green eyeshadow last week! πŸ˜€

  81. gabriela j. says:

  91. Emilee says:

    Wearing Butter london Trustafarian right now, great color!

  92. Mariee says:

    I took a bubble bath last week.

  93. Tweakweasel says:

    Ooh! I’ve been wanting to pick up more lip tars. One, because I’ve discovered that you can never have too many tubes of Feathered when it comes to mixing. And two, because I thought I was so clever picking up Traffic, NSFW, and RX…until my friend introduced me to subtractive color theory. πŸ˜› Well, at least I’ve got the Cyan and Yellow…now to just find the perfect Magenta. But anyway. πŸ™‚

  94. Rina says:

    This would certainly brighten a fairly depressing week!
    Love your blog and Tabs!

  95. Saddy says:

    I can’t get green nail polishes to work for me, though I am in love with the mint green-look. I’m also excited to try out NYC’s “high line green” – a nice “summer in Rio” color πŸ™‚

    My best friend just convinced me to go on a bar crawl with her for Saint Patty’s Day

  97. stacy says:

    Need to get up to Sephora to try out some new goodies! Good luck everyone!

  98. Jennifer says:

    Yep, been to Ireland several times. Married an Irishman from Cork. Should be on everyone’s must-see list. Beautiful country and wonderful people. Accents are charming–but some are so thick I couldn’t understand them. Growing up in Ireland, Himself tells be St. Pat’s Day was a religious holiday. None of this green beer and wild parties. Oh, did you know that only Catholics wear the green (at least in the old days)? Protestants wear orange. Erin go bragh.

  99. Katty says:

    Last time I wore green eye shadow was for my high school prom!

  100. Rebecca says:

    I am a huge lover of green and a reason to have a few bevs. I have never been to Ireland but it is definitely on my list of must trips. Maybe ill even go next St. Patty’s day!

  101. Jenny D says:

    Getting psyched for a trip to the US next week! Gonna stock up on things I can’t get at home, like Zoya polishes. πŸ™‚

  102. Colleen says:

    I’m part (can ya tell from the name), but don’t really celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The kids in grade school would pinch you if you didn’t wear green (so kids who forgot would get green ink pen and mark their hands), and once in a while I’ll do corned beef and cabbage (yum!). That’s about it.
    I used to own Nars Ireland e/s duo for years until it went bad, and it’s been discontinued, so now I have Habanera. If I remember I’ll wear it tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  104. Step says:

    I think my favorite green nail colors are Butter London Wallis and Zoya Ivanka.

  105. Alexis D. says:

    I always take bubble baths when I shave my legs. Since I wear glasses, and not contacts, shaving without them in the shower is too hard. So after my showers I take bubble baths! πŸ˜‰

  106. Katie says:

    Just ate a vanilla cupcake with a layer of cream cheese icing and topped with a shamrock made of key lime icing. Devine!!

    Hi Karen, Happy St. Paddy’s! I’d love to celebrate this year by getting in on the emerald color trend lol. And try McDonald’s shamrock shake.

  108. Clare says:

    Love Ireland – nicest, friendliest people, and green is definitely my color:)

  109. Rachel says:

    I have a couple hundred green nail polishes, so it’s REALLY hard to pick a favorite, but I love olive greens with gold shimmer! My newest favorite is Mod Lacquer Lightning Lime!

    I like Essie nail polish

  307. My current fav green polish is a toss up between Zoya Vespa and Pretty & Polished Old Green River. I wore UD Kush and UD 24/7 liner in Mildew to work today for St. Patty’s πŸ™‚ Baths gross me out – I feel like washing off your body and then laying in the same water is gross, like you’re just steeping in it and need to rinse after (no offense bath-takers, it’s just not my jam).

  353. Kristina says:

    Hey Karen! So I have never, EVER worn anything green on my face. Ever. IÒ€ℒve always wanted to try something adventurous like emerald green liner or something like that, but IÒ€ℒve never actually had the guts to wear it outside my house! IÒ€ℒm talking like, not even khaki eyeshadow. BUT. IÒ€ℒm absolutely dying to try it. I love love loooove seeing all your posts with you wearing this stunning makeup like blue smoky eyes, and thinking, oh my God she looks incredible, but IÒ€ℒm too scared that IÒ€ℒll mess it up if I try it! With St. PattyÒ€ℒs day being today, I desperately wanted to test it out; I applied some winged liner in a gorgeous greeny-gold shade and was about to leave my house before I wiped it all off with a cloth, not feeling NEARLY confident enough to actually face the world in green feline makeup. Do you have any tips for introducing a LITTLE color into everyday makeup looks? I want just a little something to add punch to my style on a daily basis. I absolutely ADORE your blog. Your posts are always so witty and make my day whenever the pop up on my bloglovinÒ€ℒ page. Thanks for such generous giveaways and for always taking the time to write inspiring posts to brighten up even the rainiest of days πŸ™‚

    I’ve never been to Ireland but I may be going in two years! I’m 100% Irish, and I didn’t go when I was abroad (disappointing), but my brother is going to be studying there in 2015, which is my parents 25th wedding anniversary and that’s their present – a family trip to the homeland!

  371. Linda says:

    Hi Karen! I personally love green eyeshadow, it gives such great depth to brown eyes, and it such a nice way to have a little smokey-ness without looking too heavy haha.
    Love your blog!

    St. Patty’s Day totally snuck up on me this year! No big plans for me.

  395. Melissa says:

    Love these giveaways

  396. Selena says:

    I am such a sucker for bluish-greens (like mints and teals); they’re probably my favorite color I like on my nails so there’s no way I could easily narrow it down to one nail polish. But one awesome true green that I really love is China Glaze’s Four Leaf Clover. It’s just the most unique, bright, electric kelly green that doesn’t go quite full neon. I’m sure a lot of people might hate this shade but I think it’s awesome. In some lights, it looks a little blue and others quite yellow; I still can’t put my finger on whether its cool, neutral, or warm. Having it on in the spring just boosts my mood. Plus, I’m not sure if this is still the case, but it was only $2 on the Ulta website for a very long time about a year ago!

  397. Shelly says:

    I’ve never been to Ireland but I’d love to go!!

  398. Laurissa says:

    I went out Friday night, then spent the rest of the weekend in due to a cold. I had enough fun Friday to last me all weekend though ;p Hope everyone had a good St. Paddy’s weekend!!

  399. Charisse says:

    I’m definitely intrigued by Zoya’s Neely. I’m a little obsessed with mint this year!

  400. Kara says:

    I’m really not adventurous with my makeup so the last time I rocked a green eye was last year in a school theater production. πŸ™‚ But if I want to switch things up, I really love using an olive/khaki green liner. (Prestige Total Intensity and Tarina Tarintino Hyperliner are the ones I have but it’s a very common shade.)

  401. Abbie says:

    My favorite green nailpolish is OPI’s jade is the new black. Totally dropped the ball on painting them for St. Pat’s this year though. Oh well.

  402. Gina Bullard says:

    I don’t do green much – just on occasion. But I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!!!!


  403. meghan says:

    Thanks for the giveaway Karen! My favorite green polish…maybe Illamasqua Nomad? It’s tough to pick just one!

  404. Sophie says:

    I really want to get the mac lip glass in impassioned.

  405. Laura Case says:

    I would love to be able to pull off a green eyeshadow look

  406. Janelle says:

    No, I did not celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I had to work.

  407. Dhariane says:

    I’m a little ashamed to say I really didn’t do much to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I’m definitely a neutrals kinda girl so you won’t find any green eyeshadows in my stash and my nail polish collection is severely lacking in the green department. oops πŸ™‚

  408. Stephanie says:

    I worked today for St. Patrick’s Day and I wore green eyeshadow and a green shirt under my scrubs.

  409. Paula says:

    My school’s color is green! πŸ˜€ Also, green: $$$

  410. Erin Anne says:

    I just took a bubble bath after a St. Patty paarty. I wore green eyeshadows too! I havent worn green e/s since about 4 yrs ago but all the pictures of green shadows on instagram made me do it. haha I lived on the wild side today! woohoo! I have been to Ireland when i was in my teens. I have family there and wow that place is so green and fresh. I would love to go back again! <3

  411. Bons says:

    I made Irish soda bread and dark chocolate Guinness cupcakes (St. Patrick’s Day is an excuse to booze ‘n’ bake!) πŸ˜‰

  417. Stacey W. says:

    I opted out of the usual St. Patty’s day shenanigans this year because I start a new job tomorrow! Not a bad trade off, me thinks!! Much love from Michigan, Karen!

  418. Denise says:

    I would LOVE to be able to ear tennis shoes to work. Unfortunately, it goes against out dress code. BOO!

  419. Michelle says:

    last thursday, i went out to lunch w/ my work crush – a tradition we do every payday – so i got all pretty & wore my new yellow skirt & wedge sandals – as we were walking to his car, i got out of balance and bam i was on the grass – and i thought to myself, i wish this grass is quick sand – my crush saw me splatter on the ground – so humiliating – and whats worse was at the end of the day, he had to bring me to urgent care, i fractured my wrist from the fall & will be on cast for 6-8 weeks – i swear, the things we do for men to notice us, girls! deep sigh…

  420. BooBooNinja says:

    I’m exhausted for no reason. I’m dearly missing my Guy, who’s away for a week. πŸ™

  421. Marilyn Gonzalez says:

    Revlon’s Posh nail polish is what I’m rocking!!!

  423. Wendy says:

    I’m currently studying for a final πŸ™ but I have Essie’s Bond With Whomever on my nails and it’s so pretty!

  424. Dollie says:

    Emerald green looks really good on my skintone, whether in clothes or in eyeshadows or even in jewellery! Makes my warm skin tone look radiant somehow.

  425. Ali says:

    Spent st Patrick’s day with my favorite little leprechaun πŸ™‚

  426. Vanessa Fortier says:

    I need the entire Zoya Pixie Dust collection right now!

  427. Jaclyn Reynolds says:

    Hope you had a nice St. Patrick’s Day!

  428. Patty says:

    I am very sad that green is the color of the year. It’s my least favorite color period. Although I do own a few nail polishes that are greenish. Mostly like mold.

  429. Eren says:

    I rocked some Too Faced green shadow on St Patty’s!

  430. Aida says:
