I Want All The Bags From the Hayden-Harnett Target Line

  • SO CUTE! I’m a total handbag ho, so I can’t wait for Hayden-Harnett’s Target Line (a collection of tote bags, clutches and a single, random umbrella) to debut on December 28th.

Say It Ain’t So

  • Are you ready for the return of the bowl bang? I used to have a Dorthy Hamill bowl cut with bangs just like these circa 1981, LOL. 🙂


Coming Soon

  • When you hit those day-after-Christmas sales on December 26, head over to MAC to peep the new Dame Edna collection. Also keep your eyes peeled for Clinique Instant Relief Mineral Powder ($32.50), a yellow, loose powder designed to cancel out red tones, which debuts in January.

The Case of the Disappearing Collar

OMG, scandal. I hadn’t seen Tabs all day yesterday, and when he arrived home last night his collar was totally MIA. This cat better not be cheating on me with another human. 🙁 It’s one of those safety collars that’s designed to break away if a kitty gets stuck, so I am really hoping that unsavory human hands did not remove the stylish blue collar from my rotund, striped friend.

Still, I’m happy it’s Friday. It’s been a long week. Today I’ve got grand plans to buy Tabs a new collar (pink with rhinestones?), test my tube o’ MAC Dazzle Lash mascara and experiment with the Nars Jolie Poupee eye duo (from the Nars holiday 2008 collection). So excited!

Are you having a good day so far?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Tabs has got attitude! I’m sure his collar just broke away when he was being super-elusive kitty.

    Wow. Tabby has a lot of things to explain…

    Hi Karen, awaiting your Dazzlelash review is driving me nuts. Then again curse the MAC in Europe. I asked today and they said Dazzlelash will only come in January/February. They also said it’s a maximum curl kind of mascara. But every time a new mascara comes out, they say it’s a maximum curl/length mascara. The rampant use of the word maximum makes me wonder what happens to the older mascaras now.

    I was also at Sephora and I got cornered into trying PhenomenEyes at the Givenchy counter. I don’t like it a bit. Not that it has smudged so far, but it looks just the same as what Diorshow Iconic/Plushlash does. And I hate it when the inner corner lashes get tinted with mascara (and that’s the point of this one) and black “specks” are showing up against the white of my eyes because they are still pointing kinda downwards.

    In any case, couldn’t you put a collar on the cat that says his address and that he belongs to you? I’m not sure how this works though. I highly doubt that the collar fell off. Anyway it’s my boyfriend who’s had many cats, but he won’t be having one anymore because he told me that he likes to put his mouth around a cat’s face up to its ears. I’m really horrified because he’s done so to me and all I saw was a gaping hole coming towards me. Is it normal at all?

  4. Tekoa says:

    *shutters at the Dame Edna collection* I’m sorry, but the packaging brings out a subconcious fear of looking like Mimi, or an elderly aunt with too much perfume and a ring of dried lipstick.

    I wonder what a phobia of wearing poorly applied makeup is called?

  5. Glosslizard says:

    My tabby-girl has lost more collars than I can count! I finally got her a black and silver collar with a pink tag and she kept it for more than a year! I guess she was just waiting for something more stylish! 🙂

    Speaking of Twilight, I went to the library to pick up Eclipse yesterday, and they unexpectedly had Breaking Dawn for me too! I’m all ready to settle down with some tea for a good read-a-thon! Woot!

  6. Dao says:

    That’s a nice picture of Tabs, he got that “I just ate a cookie” look on his face. Or is that the “you ain’t know nothin’ yet” look? My cousin’s old cat Tuna hated collars as well, although he got a really cute one with rhinestones.

  7. Anna says:

    Awww Tabs, you better explain yourself kitty !!!

    I’m secretly excited about those Dame Edna Beauty Powders I presume…they look so fun !!!

    Cant wait for your review on the Dazzlelash mascara !

    Have a great weekend Karen xxx

  8. sera says:

    my kitty is a badass. he loses ALL the expensive nice collars we get him (rhinestones… studs… braided faux leather…) so my mum gave up and made him one with just a green bell and cheap red string of man made material. and he’s been wearing it fine for the past year -_-

  9. Tania says:

    OMG Tabs is creepin it seems! I don’t know how I feel about Dame Edna especially if those Hello Kitty for MAC rumors are true. I really want another one (or two) of those mineralize eyeshadows. I have inter-view and I like it alot but it’s not that everyday wearable. I can’t wait for your Dazzlelash review. Are you getting anything from Dame Edna?

  10. Rhondalei G. says:

    Its so funny how Cam Gigandet is now a total NOW hottie. He lived in the same neighborhood as me and I went to Jr/Sr High with his sister. Random!

    I’m going to have to check out those hayden-hartnett bags at Targhey! Thanks for the info! 🙂

    Hi Dreamstela,

    I hope that’s the case. I’m about to head to the pet store in a few to get him a new one. Maybe this is his way of telling me he doesn’t like wearing blue!

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Caro,

    Right? He better not have somebody else on d-low feeding him Fancy Feast!

  13. Karen says:

    Hi Sylvie,

    I’ll have to wear it a few days; once I get a better feel for it I’ll put the review up. 🙂 I just put a few layers on right now to play with the brush and from first impressions I can tell you now that so far I think it’s for lengthening.

    I tried the Givenchy one the other day and it smudged like crazy on me. I applied it in a wicked hurry though, so I think I just have to work with it to get it right. Thought the spikey ball was neat though, and not as scary as I initially thought it would be.

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Tekoa,

    LOL, so I totally get where you are coming from. I saw Dame Edna up close a few months ago and she’s kinda scary in real life. I gotta say that I’m digging on the red glass design on the case. 🙂

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    How fun! I hope you get to go to a park on this sunny day and read your books!

    Maybe this is Tabs’ way of telling me he wants a collar with some bling.

  16. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    Aww! I’m thinking of getting one like that for Tabs. 🙂 I want to BeDazzle him!

  17. Karen says:

    Hi Anna,

    I like the packaging! The names are kinda scary though…

    I’m way more excited about Hello Kitty, though. *swoons*

    You have a fab weekend, too! Got any exciting plans?

  18. Karen says:

    Hi Sera,

    Hmm, I may have to resort to that if he keeps losing his collars.

    How old is your cat? What’s his name and what does he look like?

  19. Karen says:

    Hi Tania,

    Oh! I want another Mineralize Eye Shadow, too. While I was at the counter yesterday I was *this close* to getting the Threesome, but at the last minute decided against it.

    I just threw on two coats of Dazzle Lash and so far have noticed nice difference in length. I’m going to wear it for the next few days just to see if I can perfect the application method and test the wear time!

    For Dame Edna, I’m thinking about the eyeshadow trios! How about you?

  20. Karen says:

    Hi Rhondalei G.,

    That’s so random! You are my second incident of “six degrees of separation” with the actors of Twilight this week. I know somebody who just interviewed Edward Cullen (LOL, I know that’s not his real name) this week. 🙂

    Aren’t those bags super cute? I can’t wait!

  21. KK says:

    Hey girl…I was thinking about you and your family today…how is your mil doing?

    happy friday!

  22. Glosslizard says:

    LOL, probably! That cat has some ambitious taste!

  23. claudia says:

    LOL one of my cats always managed to rip off her collar, so now i don’t even bother with one. They stay inside anyway, so the collar was just icing. =)
