Cat off, GO!!

A very cool musical piece created with a bonsai tree

Not exactly sure what’s going on here, but it’s hella funny

My favorite G-Stef vid; btw, have you entered the MBB Gwen Stefani Makeup Challenge?

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. I had such a great time watching How To Train Your Dragon last night. Just an adorable, touching movie for kids and grownups alike (I even got a little teary).

I’ve always felt like Dreamworks played second fiddle to Pixar in the animated movie department, but this film changes that for me. Shrek (the first one) wasn’t just a fluke. They’ve got game. If you wind up seeing it this weekend, let me know what you thought.

    Hey! A bit random but I’d love to know your opinions! I’m thinking of doing my 1st Mac haul soon! I’m thinking of buying:
    – Nude lipstick.. something like creme d’nude or freckletone
    – Blush (thinking of Pinch O’ Peach)
    – Fluidline Blacktrack
    – Rubenesque paint pot

    Let me know if you have any other recommendations or if these are good choices! Thanks! ๐Ÿ˜€

      All of these are great items.

      A few more you might want to think about:

      High Tea lipstick (a fantastic shimmery pinkish beige nude, looks good with MAC Clear Lipglass on top)
      Nyphette Lipglass (my fave MAC nude gloss; see swatch/review here)
      Viva Glam V Lipstick (a shimmery neutral pink)
      Technakohls in Graphblack and Brownborder (fantastic for the waterline; see review here)
      Cream Color Base in Pearl
      Arena Eyeshadow (see review here)
      Cream Color Base in Pearl (review)
      Prep + Prime Loose Powder — this photographs beautifully; I use this in my FOTDs! See review here.

      Hope this helps!

    I wanna see that movie! The dragon is cute and I just wanna huggle it (even though it’d probably eat me, but hey that’s what I’m seeing the movie for, right? So I can tame it?).

    That LORAC deal is tempting…

  3. Nina says:

    Ohhh I want to see that movie too!

    We just got back from lunch at a Malaysian Place and grocery shopping – were making Mediterranean Lamb Shank for dinner later …

    I have laundry to fold but that can wait! I must check out that LORAC deal – I like LORAC A LOT!!!

    • Karen says:

      It’s really good. Totally worth the full price of a movie ticket!

      Malaysian food sounds delish… I’ve never had it before, but I’m intrigued.

      We just got back from a late lunch/early dinner. Also went for a short hike in too! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Whatcha up to tonight? I think we’re just going to chill at home.

      • Nina says:

        Malaysian food is salty/sweet/spicy which, to me is the perfect combination!

        We stayed home last night — watched Law and Order SVU (one of my guilty pleasures!!!) and read.

        We also made Lamb Shank for dinner – omnomnomnom!!!

    The Chanel nail polishes look so pretty regardless! I am totally feeling the turquoise color! FYI – “Cool” is my favorite Gwen video too! Any idea when the Summer collection is coming out?
