I wore these everywhere yesterday, and I got SO MANY compliments on my jewelry…

Haha, totally kidding. ๐Ÿ™‚ But far be it from me to deny one’s inner diva urges to over-accessorize. I LIVE to over-accessorize.

Cute in a “DAMN, is that cat rockin’ a monobrow?!” sort of way, the Too Cool for School Artify Max In Pocket Lip Balms are actually lip glosses.

Technically, they aren’t earrings…but with the removable keychain, you can clip them onto your makeup bag, your key ring, your backpack or, yup, around your ears to pretend they’re kitty cat earrings.

Too Cool AND too cute!

Let’s get real… I wanted to try these because they look like something from a hip store in Japantown, but as luck would have it, the balm inside them is really good! The moisturizing, lightly tinted formula has shea and mango seed butter, and they’re non-sticky, comfortable and taste and smell a little like raspberries.

The $12 Too Cool for School Artify Max in Pocket Lip Balms

Oh, and please note all of teh kittehs. POWER TO THE CAT LADIES! — because I believe that Anke Weckmann, the illustrator who designed the packaging, is part of the CCL tribe. Pin her work, and rejoice in the knowledge that our people, the crazy cat ladies of the world, are slowly taking over…

Meow’s about time you pocketed Max in Pocket, my fellow feline fanatic. They’re at Sephora for a limited time for $12.


Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Happy Caturday, my friend! ๐Ÿ˜บ I hope you’re doing something fun this weekend. I’m beyond stoked because I’m going to the salon today, yay!

I need my root situation rectified ASAP, and I need to figure out what to do with my hair. It’s just… It’s long, and it’s thinner than it used to be, and I just wake up every morning feeling like Sebastian Bach.

I mean, he can pull it off, but I can’t. I need help.

    Adorable! Usually I buy stuff like that for the cute factor, but when the product inside is great too, score!

    LOLing at the Sebastian Bach comment! The mom of a guy I kind of dated in high school apparently was one of his groupies back in the say.

    I’m trying biotin to see if it actually does anything for hair growth. My bangs are grown out to my cheeks and look pretty good at this point – I got over the bangs look pretty quickly. I cut my hair into a bob 2 years ago and have pretty much been growing out ever since. It’s around bra strap length.

      LOL, that’s so random. I can’t WAIT to see him in the new Gilmore Girls. I bet he’s still rockin’ that hair…

      Funny that you mention bangs because I ended up getting them. It’s been a while since I’ve had real-deal bangs (I think the last time was 2010?), so it’s fun for now.

      Hope you’re having a nice weekend so far. What have you been up to?

      • Chelsea says:

        I liked the bangs for a while! I”m glad I tried them, I’d had variations of the same haircut (middle parted, long) for about 15 years.

        Friday night we went to a Mexican restaurant and played board games with some friends, and then one of Zack’s friends from out-of-town came to stay with us for the weekend. He was feeding Quincy by hand, LOL. Fun to see a big gruff guy feeding this little old bunny.

        I also did hand balance and contortion classes yesterday, and dang, I am sore! I’m also going to a meeting for our local chapter of Project HEAL (they raise money for eating disorder treatment for those who can’t afford it) to plan a bunch of fundraisers we’ve got coming up.

        How are you, Connor Claire, and Tabs?

        • Karen says:

          Bangs are funny. I like having them because I feel so different in them, and for the first two weeks after a trim, they’re awesome. But then after that… OH BOY, it’s a mess. While I was at the salon yesterday I made sure to make all of my bang trim appointments while I was there because I’m trying to be pro-active about that maintenance. We’ll see how long I last. LOL

          Sounds like you’ve been having a fun weekend! Mexican food… yum! What did you order? I’ve been craving chicken enchiladas lately so I might try to make them this week.

          Things on this end are great. Today I’ll be taking pics and chillin’ in front of the computer for awhile, which should be fun.

          Connor Claire’s teething right now which has been a challenge, the poor coywolf! She alternates between being super cranky and very chill, and I’m hoping today is a chill day (crosses fingers).

          Tabs is a rockstar as always, of course. ๐Ÿ™‚ He’s outside in his cat tower right now exerting his dominance over everyone in the neighborhood (ya know, the usual).

    Hair stylists deal with this all the time. Do whatever feels right for YOU ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Hi Amanda,

      I ended up getting some bangs! It was a spur of the moment decision… I needed a change and it feels great. By the way, are you a hair stylist?

      How is your little one doing?

    The balms are super cute! My only Too Cool product is the Dinoplatz mascara, which I really like. ๐Ÿ™‚
