Okay, here it is: you, me, Tabs — we blow off the rest of the afternoon, drive into the city, hit an ice cream shoppe, and then go cruising for makeup.


What do ya say? Come on! You know you want to. ๐Ÿ™‚

I need a break… Tabs has been working my paws to the bone! This morning, we had a “gravy emergency.” I won’t go into it now, but needless to say, I’m pooped.

I could really do with a few hours of meow time right now.

Let’s see… We could start with fresh-squeezed lemonade and semi-sweet chocolate chip cookies at Specialty’s (yep, that’s really how it’s spelled), do a little shopping at Union Square, maybe stop by Nordstrom to see Dick Page work his magic at the Shiseido counter.

And after, a trip to the Barneys New York beauty department where they carry one of my favorite under-the-radar makeup lines, Sunday Riley, and niche perfumes you can’t really sniff anywhere else (hello, Frederic Malle Geranium!).

And right now they’ve got a pretty sweet gift with purchase set.

It’s to celebrate their Love Yourself Beauty Event, going on now ’til September 22. Spend $200 on any combo of makeup, skin care and/or perfume, and get a blue and tan makeup bag bursting with fancy beauty samples like…

  • Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum
  • Sunday Riley The Influencer Extra Volume Glossy Mascara
  • Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Money Now Sleep Later
  • Koh Gen Do Makeup Color Base in Lavender Pink
  • Sue Devitt Defining Eyeliner in Oslo
  • Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads
  • Giorgio Armani Regenessence Multi-Corrective Rejuvenating Cream
  • By Terry Creme De Rose Nutri-Lift Comfort Cream
  • Malin+ Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturizer
  • Chantecaille Rice and Geranium Foaming Cleanser
  • 3Lab The Cream
  • Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask
  • NARS Skin Double Refining Exfoliator
  • YSL Forever Youth Liberator Serum
  • L’Artisan Parfumeur Paris Eau de Toilette in Batucada
  • Costume National Deau de Parfum
  • Tocca Violette Eau de Parfum
  • Kai Fragrance

The offer also includes men’s grooming products, so you could snag something for yourself and/or your woman/man. In my case, I’m not so sure about that… El Hub acts like face moisturizer and eye cream are the devil’s work!

If you can’t make it to Barneys, the offer also applies to online beauty purchases, too. No coupon code necessary. Just fill your cart, and the goody bag automatically pops up when you hit the $200 barrier.

And speaking of chocolate chip cookies (weren’t we talking about those?)…

If you have a fool-proof recipe, please pass it along. I’m craving cookies BADLY, and terrible things may happen if I don’t get some cookies soon.

Mmm… Cookies…

    I have a white choc chip-orange cookies pinned on my board..let me know if you like the sound of it ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Kelly says:

    Ice cream and makeup shopping! When can you be ready? Haha. BTW now carries Sunday Riley. I have a great recipe for snicker cookies, they are amazing! When ever I make them, I have to hide some from my hubby because he will eat them all. I’ll email it to you.

  4. Tiffany says:

    Karen, have you checked out New York Times’ chocolate chip cookie recipe? Apparently it’s the best one out there but I’ve never tried it.

  5. monika says:

    Immaculate Baking Company has THE best ready to bake cookie dough! Love it! They are natural and package is cute and supports good cause, which makes having cookies even better. I always add extra chocolate chips……or more like extraextraextra:) Just squeeze them on top when u see the dough kinda melting in the oven. And then grind some sea salt on top once they are ready. Deeeelish!

  6. Heidi says:

    No chocolate chips but I made these Peanut Butter Blondies the other day because I happened to have everything called for. Holy crap are they good!

  7. Nina says:

    My current candy obsession is Reese’s pieces. Go figure. ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Kim says:

    El Hub and The Hubs are clearly cut from the same facial moisturizing cloth. Even if I leave samples out or encourage him to use my “good stuff”, he won’t. Then I catch him using the body/hand lotion on his face. Painful. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Futuralon says:

    Both me and my chef friend swear by the nestle tollhouse choc chip cookie recipe that comes on the bag of choc chips. Best tip is the let the dough age in the fridge for a day. Mmm.

  10. Kathleen says:

    I’m not so great on the baking front, but I hope to see more wedding pictures! You look so radiant, and -OMG- so tan!!!

  11. Such great samples!!

    I’m trying out Chocolate Chip Cake Mix cookies this week, I’ll let you know how they turn out! ๐Ÿ™‚
