A Sit-Down with Sarah Jessica Parker

Published in: News

Covet Pure Bloom, Sarah Jessica Parker

What’s up, ladies? Can I get your help with something? Sarah Jessica Parker’s coming to the Bay Area this week to promote her latest fragrance, Covet Pure Bloom, and I’m interviewing her for the blog. I have to come up with a list of fragrance and beauty questions.


As Carrie Bradshaw, she wore a lot of sky high heels, so I may ask how she deals with stilettos, not that I plan to wear Manolos any time soon. I get my heels on sale at Zappos, girl!


SJP will be at the Macy’s Stoneridge Shopping Center (1300 Stoneridge Mall in Pleasanton) in the Fragrance Department this Thursday, July 17 at noon. The store will also have available exclusive fragrance gift sets of products from SJP’s Lovely Sarah Jessica Parker collection ($167). Call 925-463-3333, ext. 4121 for details, or stop by the fragrance counter.

Are there any makeup or beauty related questions you think I should ask her? Let me know in the comments.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Here’s SJP talking about Covet Pure Bloom in a recent interview.

    I can’t think of anything besides, “Oh my God, you are Sarah Jessica Parker.”

    I’m so jealous! I can’t wait to hear how it goes!

  2. Shefali says:

    OMG…you are so freakin’ lucky. One question I’d love to ask her is what facial care products she uses to keep her skin looking so great. And, what’s her daily skincare routine?

    And another one: what were her inspirations for the fragrances she has put out thus far (Lovely, Covet, and Covet Pure Bloom)?

    God…so many questions…so little time. She’s my idol.

  3. KK says:

    I hate you! J/K of COURSE! 😉

    You are so freakin LUCKY!!!

    Maybe you could ask her what her “freak out” products are….Like what would she die without.

    Do you know what you are going to wear yet?

  4. Lucky says:

    Wow, go you, Karen!

    Ask her what are the beauty products she can’t live without. Maybe something about how SATC influenced her beauty routine, along w/the obvious fashion influence? And has her routine changed since becoming a mom? Since becoming famous?

    Hope this helps. Good luck!

    LOL Lucky! Great minds think alike! 😉

  6. Marisol says:

    omg Karen! You are so lucky. I am such of fan of SJP that I cannot wait to read your interview with her.

    I would love to know what products she uses on her hair whether she wears it curly or straight. What are her HG hair items? Also, what is her HG beauty item?

    You will have a blast with her.

    Hi, I found your site while perusing through specktra.net and am now hooked on your blog! You’ve got so much info on make-up and girlie stuff that I now will resort to your blog for just about anything of the such!

    About SJP, I am not as obsessed with her but would like to know when and if she plans to have another baby.

  8. Mariah says:

    OMG!!! You must be so excited!!! I know how much you love her!! You’re so lucky! I’m so jealous!! 😀

    I don’t know what to ask her… uhm,… what she plans on doing next? I dunno, you’re such an awesome interviewer, I’m sure you’ll have plenty to ask!

    I just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS!! This is awesome!! I can’t wait to read the interview, and see pics!!!!

  9. Ellery says:

    Eee! I love Sarah Jessica Parker!

    Covet is also my favorite perfume and I had no idea she had a new one out!

  10. carla says:

    Hi Karen miss ya honey xxx
    it’s been a while and I know it’s outta topic but is there away to make Eliza Dushku introduce a fragrance for us? I’m waitin’ for ages for that to happen 🙁
    about Jessica would you suggest to launch a beauty brand with her name and that would be wonderfull 🙂

  11. Julia says:

    Wow, I’m so insanely jealous, but yet not jealous at the same time because I think I would be too nervous to interview her. I second wanting to know what products she uses in her hair when she wears it curly. Also, what is her favorite pink lippie? I’d also like to know about her fitness routine and how she keeps her abs and thighs so toned!

  12. Hillary says:

    Wow Karen, I’m impressed! I’m also jealous, I love SJP, she’s so fabulous and yet she seems totally down to earth. I think growing up in a low income family as one of six children probably has a lot to do with her humble attitude.

    I would like to know if she would be interested in coming out with an affordable hair, skin, or makeup line. I love her motivation for creating the Bitten clothing line, she feels like great fashion should be affordable for ALL women. I think it would be awesome if she would create an affordable and effective beauty line of some sort. Have fun on your interview!!! Congrats!

  13. Mimi says:

    WOW SJP HUH? Nice…ummm although she has her own fragrance, I would ask her what other fragrances she loves or what ones inspired her to do her own line.

  14. gio says:

    Oh My God, you’re so lucky. Can’t wait to read your interview!

  15. Jessica says:

    squee! This is so exciting!

    2nd what Shefali said: what’s her skin-care routine?

    Does she prefer lipgloss or lipstick?

    Also, what was her favorite beauty product in junior high? Hee!

    Oh, this is so cool! Congratulations!

  16. Jenna says:

    Okay so I just watched that video of the Sarah Jessica Parker interview. And the ending was really shocking. Did I HEAR that correctly? After SJP says she likes to think of herself as every woman, the voice over guy says: “You are every woman, and I can’t wait to get into your bloom.” DIRTY!!!!

  17. Music_Is_Freedom says:

    Definitely ask her about dealing with stilettos, or any high heels. I can’t fathom how she can wear Manolos without a problem and I can barely get by in kitten heels.

  18. shockingpink says:

    that’s great!
    i hope you have a great time interviewing SJP! I’m definitely looking forward to your interview post.
    I Love this site:):):) Keep up the funnnnn-ness!

  19. Anna says:

    Wowzer, Karen, you lucky lady !!

    I would ask her what her three make-up must haves/ desert island items are ?

    And also, keep a close eye on the mole, apparently its gone !!!!

    Have fun !!

  20. Dao says:

    Oh man, you are one heck of a lucky blogger. I don’t think any celeb will come to my town for a signing or promo or anything…except T-Pain of course because dude was born and raised in T-town (the “T” in T-Pain is the same “T” in the name of the town).

    Anyways, I don’t know how much time you get to spend with Mz. SJP but can you ask her if she got to keep all the shoes in SATC. And how many pairs of shoes she currently own as well. And what is her favorite makeup and skincare product. And…and…and…and 😀

    OMG, I’m getting hyper while I’m sick as a dog! This is not good!

  21. Aurélie says:

    OMG you’re SO lucky 🙂 She’s a hell of a woman. Besides what her cant-live-without products are, i’d be interested to know if she has any drugstore favorite product, and if she was really using Orgasm in SATC or if this was only an invention of Nars PR people 🙂

    Also, congratulate her !!!

  22. Amanda says:

    you go with your bad self Karen!!! how fun-meeting “Carrie Bradshaw”. I think I would be toooo nervous to handle this. Just make sure you still have fun.

    as for questions….hmmm, I’ve only though of one.
    *she seems to wear smokey eyes/nude lips a lot. Is this her go-to/favorite look or is there another “look” she loves? (like bright lips, or glowy cheeks, etc)

  23. Joanne says:

    Wow!!! You’re so lucky to chat with SJP! I love SATC. I’m contemplating if I should stop by the Stoneridge mall to see her. Its about a couple min. Drive, but I’m thinking it might be worth it. I’m excited! I hope you have fun and good luck! As far as questions to ask her… I think all the above questions are pretty good. Can’t wait to read the next blog with SJP.

  24. Karen says:

    Hi Melissa,

    I just might end up saying that. 🙂 Hope you’re having a good day, and lemme know if you think of any burning questions. 🙂

  25. Karen says:

    Hi Shefali,

    These are great questions. I’ve always admired her skin, too!

    Which one of her fragrances is your favorite?

  26. Karen says:

    Hi KK,

    That’s a good one! We all have those products, and it would make total sense for a celeb to have her arsenal of must-haves, too. 🙂

    I’m probably just going to wear a black dress or suit. I am very petite and look fairly young so I always have to wear heels and dress up a little so that I look older when I do interviews.

    Hope you’re having a good day. 🙂

  27. Karen says:

    Hi Lucky,

    I really like the how has the beauty routine changed question. Will add that to the list!

    What’s new with you?

  28. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    These are all questions that I’ve wondered, too. How can one woman’s curly hair look so fabulous all the time? It’s totally not fair.

  29. Karen says:

    Hi Lee,

    I don’t know if I’ll be able to ask personal questions but I’ll add that one to the list.

    Are you active on Specktra? I love that site! It’s like MAC crack for my mind. 🙂

  30. Karen says:

    Hi Mariah,

    Your question is great! Added to the list…

  31. Karen says:

    Hi Ellery,

    Yup, it’s called Covet Pure Bloom and it’s a Limited Edition. It has pikake in it!

  32. Karen says:

    Hi Carla,

    Thanks for your input. Hope you are well!

  33. Karen says:

    Hi Julia,

    Right? Her abs are really amazing!

  34. Karen says:

    Hi Hillary,

    That is a great question. I would totally like to see that from her, too.

  35. Karen says:

    Hi Mimi,

    Another one to add to the list! 🙂

  36. Karen says:

    Hi Gio,

    Let me know if you think of anything you’d like me to ask. Are you an SJP fan?

  37. Karen says:

    Hi Jessica,

    LOL, love the Jr. High question! What was yours during that time? Mine was an illegal purple eyeliner from Lancome that my friend gave me (I wasn’t supposed to wear makeup). I liked to wear it with this oversized purple Esprit sweater and leggings, LOLOL! Oh gawd, the late 80s were hard times…

  38. Karen says:

    Hi Jenna,

    LOLOL! I just realized that too!

  39. Karen says:

    Hi Music Is Freedom,

    You aren’t the only one. I find kitten heels more challening than my three-inch heels sometimes.

  40. Karen says:

    Hi Shockingpink,

    Are you an SJP fan? Let me know if you have any burning questions to ask her. 🙂

  41. Karen says:

    Hi Anna,

    I saw that in some news stories this morning. I hope to not stare too intently at that spot, oy!

  42. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    Take care of yourself, girlie! And say hi to T-Pain for me, LOLOL (hey, I actually like him).

  43. Karen says:

    Hi Aurelie,

    Good questions, especially the drugstore one!

  44. Karen says:

    Hi Amanda,

    Ohh, another one to add to the list. I’ve noticed that she wears that look often, too especially on the red carpet.

  45. Karen says:

    Hi Joanne,

    It might be mayhem so you should probably call the fragrance counter first to get times and details on when to arrive. I remember during the Paris interview that fans were lined up around the block and it was crazy, checking with Macy’s first would be a good idea!

  46. Elena says:

    Congratulations, Karen!

    I cannot wait to read that interview! I adore her and “Sex and the City”. I def. second the questions above about her favorite, die-without-them products and how she keeps her hair so well kept when it’s curly (I have crazy, curly hair like hers and would love to hear her suggestions).

    The only question I can think of is a non-beauty related question, but I’ve always wondered if she’d consider doing a musical with her husband (I’m a big fan of them both. 🙂 ).

  47. Karen says:

    Hi Elena,

    I think they did one before they were married (the things you learn the day before the interview!). They did How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying in the 90s.

    Are you a fan of musical theater? West Side Story is my favorite.

  48. Elena says:

    Hey Karen,

    I’ll have to check that one out sometime. I just googled it and it looks pretty good. I’ve been slowly getting in theater more this year, so far my favorite musical is “Kiss Me, Kate”. If you can believe it, I still haven’t seen “West Side Story”, but it’s near the top of my list.

    Good luck tomorrow with the interview! I hope you’ll have so much fun with it. Maybe you could ask her what her own favorite musical is, too, lol.

  49. Karen B says:

    That is so awesome!
    I don’t know if I’m too late with this but ah well.
    You could do a this or that round? Where she has to pick between two beauty products or so?

    Good luck girl and have fun!

    Omg, I AM SO JEALOUS! I worship Sex and the City, it is seriously the ONLY thing in the world that makes me feel better when I am upset, especially with boy problems. It is so witty, well written, entertaining, smart, and relatable. Ugh I love Carrie, she is my hero, and SJP is a goddess. I can’t WAIT to hear about the interview!!!!!! You know how we all identify ourselves with one of the Sex gals [I am def a Carrie!], I wonder who she, herself, identifies the most with.

  51. Karen says:

    Hi Elena,

    I have to admit that West Side Story is my favorite because I’ve been in the show twice, one in the orchestra pit and once as a performer (I was a Jet girl). Seeing it on stage is great, but the movie is also good to.

    I think I saw Kiss Me Kate a long time ago. I will have to watch the movie again soon.

  52. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    You are so sweet. The interview went okay and she was really nice in person.

  53. Karen says:

    Hi Vivien,

    It went okay. SJP looked great and talked a lot. It was a great learning experience, for sure!

  54. Lee says:

    Karen, on specktra.net, I visit in spurts…I’ve only been a member a little over a year ago so I’ve visited the site about 5 times maybe. But when I do, I spend hours and hours on end reading, learning and taking notes!!
