  92. Anne says:

    Well I think I can talk about anything and go one forever but I’ll talk about my first car. Here’s how the story goes. Prior to getting my first car ever, I couldn’t afford a car by myself and I depended on getting the car from my father. Because of that , I had to get a car that my father agree on. Guess who went car shopping with me ? OF COURSE MY FATHER. So we made a couple trips out of town to look for cars, and the ones that I want , my father did not quite agree or something is wrong with the car during test drives. Finally, one weekend , we came upon a 1997 toyota camry , goodness my father was all over that car as if he wanted it. I had no interest at all standing like 3 ft from the car and pretended to nod my head as my father ask questions after questions to see if I agree with him. So he and the car salesman took the car for a test drive, which I did not go (You know why). After the test drive, my father came back all satisfy with everything. I was thinking to myself , please do not try to buy that car because WHY? Well I thought that car was so ELDERLY LOOKING (OG STYLE) and I just did not see myself driving that car. I thought the car was a good fit for my father , but ironically he wanted to get me that car, I guess…so ………he can drive it too once and awhile. SO , I was thinking for a very long time to see if I should get the car or be rebellious. Well, thinking to myself , its no big deal getting a car, as long as it’s drivable and takes to places . I guess when I start earning and saving , then I’ll get a car that I want and like. So , we ended up getting the car and now that I think of it, the car was not too bad . I’m still with the car and starting to like it :).

  93. Veronica says:

    This palette looks like a combo of the UD naked palette and too faced’s natural eye palette, but with lip products, fun!

    For some reason i always gravitate towards nude colors so this would be a good addition for me. For some reason im too chicken to rock wildly bold colors. Maybe Ill work up to them someday.

    Happy Saturday! I’ll tell you about my prom date who was my best friend. She still is one of my best friends (though she moved half the country away) and is getting married in a little over a year. She asked me to be one of her bridesmaids and while I’m not sure about this bridesmaid business, it is touching to know she still wants me there for a big moment in her life.

    This weekend is an extended one here in Lisbon (Portugal), because both last Friday and next Monday are holidays (the first one national and the second one regional). We are having the “Lisbon parties” this weekend, where every neighborhood organizes huge parties with music and food (and everyone is welcome) and tonight we’ll have a themed parade, where every neighborhood participates. There’s a different theme every year, it lasts until Monday morning and in the end we select one winner. It’s a very typical, fun and down to heart celebration and every time a foreigner friend of mine decides to visit Lisbon I suggest they choose this time of the year.

    I really hope you were serious about the comment being about anything…
    So anyway, back in my high school days I would help my friends whenever they had video projects that needed to be filmed. This particular project was on social norms, and they had to record themselves breaking social norms. I, of course, graciously volunteered to be the camerawoman so I could get some upclose and personal shots of my friends in their not-so-finest-moments. My friend, lets call her Stephanie, decided that the social norm she would break is: makeup. She walked into Sephora and slathered on foundation that was about two shades too light, different colored eyeshadow on her lids, bright pink blush in perfect circles on the apples of her cheeks, and to top it all off, she used black liquid liner to fill in her brows. I dubbed her, CLOWNY-CAKES. It suited her well, she was caked with make-up and she did look like a clown.
    After leaving Sephora, (and giving a quick peek back to the horror-stricken workers) Steph and I took a tour of the mall. I walked a few steps in back of her to catch all of the stares, double-takes, and snickers as person after person passed us by. The best part of the video came when Steph went up to a security guard and asked for directions; he couldn’t even look at her, let alone give her directions! At the end of the day, we went back to Sephora and stood in front of their mirrors trying to rub off all of the makeup. It took us a good 30 minutes or so, LOL.
    As I edited the video, I noticed that the only thing Steph really did wrong in Sephora was picking the wrong products to put on her face. Her application was flawless, and I was beginning to see what she’s been trying to tell me all this time; makeup is art. Her obsession finally made sense to me, and as I tip-toed into my sister’s room; instead of trying to find her hidden money pouch, I went straight to her vanity.
    And thus began the curious case of my make-up obsession.

  390. Alison says:

    I love Saturday BBQ’s, kids screaming and jumping in the pool, the grown-ups chillin’ in the spa, my hubby running around shoving tri-tip in everyone’s face. No need for make-up (well maybe just a little) , just a comfy maxi dress and some zories…Summer is here;-)

    Hi Karen
    Greetings and salutations from Melbourne Australia. I know you have many fans in Australia and I love reading your blog.
    I was hoping to get a heads up on some shopping spots in Hawaii. Primarily I’m after make up and clothes. I will be tin Honolulu in January.
    Thank you for your unsung heroes segment, It gives me a new perspective on many products that I have forgotten about or have yet to discover.
    If i was to be the lucky winner of the NYX Palette, my beautiful daughter would be the recipient, she has great eye for colour and is very creeative with her makeup.
    Thanks for the chance.

  406. Wilmarie says:

  407. Aiselle says:

    I have a feeling this is a good dupe of UD’s naked palette!!!

  408. Kathryn says:

    The last thing I prepared for dinner was a salmon and asparagus pasta with cream cheese sauce

  409. Rebecca says:

    I recently bought 3 NYX blushes from one of the few (really, there are just two or three!) tiny beauty supply stores in NYC that carry the brand. They were super pigmented and applied so easily, plus all the shades I saw were soft and natural-looking, which is the look I’m into at the moment. Very impressed.

  410. Joanna says:

    Today I spent my day in Sacramento! I hate this hot sticky weather because I’m so used to East Bay weather. It’s still hot, but not as sticky! On top of that I found my Hello Kitty Vans. Yaaaah! =)

  411. Siena says:

    I meant to get the naked palette but it was always out whenever I dropped by!! And the last thing I made was spaghetti with a whole half stick of butter in it. MMM.

  412. gina says:

    i love nyx’s eye shadows! and their eyeliners. those are the only nyx products i have, and i do think they’re AWESOME even though inexpensive. though, i’ve never paid for those products since my friend sells them in her store and gives them to me as presents :]

  413. kam says:

    I really enjoy Nyx! Doll Eye mascara is among my favorite products. High Light eye shadow is fabulous also.

  425. peach_ says:

    You know, I don’t think I’ve ever given NYX as a brand a fair chance in my beauty stash. But I’m loving the look of these neutrals paired with fun lip colors! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  426. Tammy says:

    My favorite NYX products are the jumbo eye pencils and the lip glosses. Great stuff with even better prices.

  427. Heather says:

    Last thing I made for dinner – stir fry with broccoli, peppers, water chestnuts, and korean bbq!

  428. Shan says:

    Hi Karen! Hope you had a great vacay in Vancouver, the pics look awesome πŸ™‚ I’ve got 3 NYX lipglosses that I love (and of course, I can’t remember their names now) but nothing else since NYX isn’t available here in Malaysia. My Saturday night was spent boogie-ing at a club with my 2 BFs – kinda of a belated bday party for me πŸ™‚ We hadn’t gone clubbing in a while, so we decided to go relive our youths lol.

    Last thing I made for dinner? Does that include the oatmeal I made when I worked late last week? No? Ok.. I made lasagna 6-ish months ago. Funny thing about my lasagna is that its pretty good (i got it from my mama!) but people are always mildly disappointed when it shows up at our potluck dinners coz they expect me to make Indian food (I’m Indian, obviously lol). I’m always like “hey, you’re Chinese, do you eat kung pao chicken everyday?” Grrr…
