Giiirl, what are you doing up so early!?


Wait — it’s 8:30 already? Are you kidding me? How’d that happen?

Huh, I must have slept in, which can only mean one thing…

It’s time for COFFEE! πŸ™‚

Aw, yeah. I’m just foolin’ around. I’ve actually already had my first cup. Tabs and I have been waiting for you. We’re here watching Bravo (Blood, Sweat & Heels) on the couch.

I want you to listen to me for a minute now, and it’s very important.

Are you listening?

OK, here goes: you are going to have one of the greatest days ever in the history of the world.

The history departments at Ivy League universities are going to start teaching students about today and just how awesome it really was.

I’m serious! — today is going to be epic for you. I know it for a fact (Tabs told me).

The best way to proceed is for you to enter this weekend’s giveaway. That’ll give the awesomeness of the day a good start…

I’m gonna go for a run on the treadmill now. Be back soon. πŸ™‚

    5 years ago I lived in Oregon. Since then i’ve lived in Washington and France.

  8. Madisen says:

    I have no style inspiration. I like cute, girlie things but I’m such of a tom boy that I usually end up wearing cool, relaxed pieces that I pick up in thriftshops.

  9. Lisa Brown says:

    I like Maddie Claire hand bags

  10. Tiff says:

    My favourite Shakespearean play…SO MANY. I guess I’ll go with As You Like It, although Hamlet has a great place in my heart as well.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway! New reader!

  11. Katrina says:

    I am planning on having a great day – thank you! I also got my haircut this week and am getting used to the new style and shape but I like it, it’s just a work in progress.

  12. Katherine says:

    I use a magnified lighted mirror to apply my makeup… it makes everything easier to see! πŸ™‚

  13. Elena says:

    I just use the plain old bathroom mirror to do my makeup. And when I get ready in the morning and have to share the bathroom with my bf sometimes I use this cheap long mirror we bought awhile back.

  14. Julia Mumme says:

    No I dont have a special mirror only the one stuck to my makeup drawer but I have poor lighting in the room and the mirror is round so I am still wondering how to achieve proper lighting. Its very hard to see blush in the mirror sometimes and when I’m out the door and see me in windows or something I am shocked how intense the colour got πŸ˜€

  15. GB says:

    I moved into my current house five years ago πŸ™‚

  16. Carla says:

  17. Avery says:

    Glad it’s the weekend!

  18. Sonia says:

    My favourite Shakespearean play has to be Hamlet!

    I have a great double sided, magnified lit up mirror from Costco and I love it. I couldn’t apply mascara using a different mirror. And yes, I do remember my address from 5 years ago, it was my Polish address but I lived there for 20+ years so I don’t think I will ever forget it.

  20. kayla p says:

    I want my comment to be about anxiety because its something that lately has been consuming my life and i want everyone out there to know that youre not alone and you can so easily reach out to someone for help. i made the choice to start therapy and i feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulder. so dont be afraid to make that phone call.

  21. Valentina says:

    Lately i just tried a couple of new hair styles but nothing more.. but I’m planning to get a haircut in a few days!

  22. 5 years ago I was living in the UK πŸ™‚

  27. Alexandra says:

    I had just moved to Sweden 5 years ago from South Africa. Very exciting times! I’ve moved around the country a lot since, so the addresses are starting to meld together in my memory. I started wondering the other day if there may be a cause to write down my address history for any future purpose. Do you have any thoughts on it?

  28. Kristen says:

    I use a mirror in my room it’s the only mirror I use!

  29. rana says:

    I love the picture up there of all the eye shadows. I just want to reach over to the monitor and swatch them all.

    Hope you had a lovely run!

  35. Vanessa says:

    I have such an over-the-top obsession with makeup – I’ve spent a significantly large portion of my most recent pay cheque on orders from MAC, Sephora and my local Shoppers Beauty Boutique!

    It’s blogs like this that fuel my obsession… and I wouldn’t have it any other way πŸ™‚

  36. Jennifer R. says:

    I hope I win! I want to buy some new makeup for spring!

  37. Icequeen81 says:

    My favorite play is Hamlet of Shakespeare.

    I don’t have a specific person as Icon, but I sure love the style of the forties sends I was little girl. I love their make up
    matte lips in a plum , red-brown or wine shade, a very retro way subtle , and skin colored eye-shadow. and for sure I love the hair do

  38. rosy says:

    I love Shakespeare! I read a lot of the plays in high school. They are all very interesting. The Merchant Of Venice, Much Ado About Nothing, King Lear.. etc.

  39. Ashlee says:

    I think everyone should have a mirror that they use for makeup. Mine is awesome and it totally makes my life easier πŸ™‚

  40. monica says:

    I use a mirror I got from Marshall’s with a stand to apply my make up

  41. Melanie Ann says:

    Hahaa… loved your variety of possible questions! My style icon will always be my grandma. My G-ma could rock it like no ones biz. She was always so classic, but with an edge that made it her own! P/S Thank you for the super sweet giveaway, big fan! xx

  42. Amy says:

    Just ran 4 miles outside! Got to enjoy it before the snow comes tomorrow here πŸ™

  44. Cindy says:

    My favorite style icon? Gwen Stefani. I always *loved* her red lipstick and cat eye look!

  45. Deborah says:

    Aw, thank you! Hope it’s awesome for you, too. πŸ˜€

  46. Sydney says:

    5 years ago I was moving out of my dinky apartment and in with my (now) husband.. crazy to think that was 5 years ago! Time flies when you are in love.

  47. Krista says:

    OMG. Those eyeshadows. LOVE that pic! Just made it my iPad background πŸ™‚

  48. Nicole says:

    Lately I have been straightening my semi curly hair and then using dry shampoo for a few days so I don’t fry my hair. It seems to be working. I have also been trying to curb my indie nail polish obsession, although that’s not working out too well. Oh well, a girl can never have too much nail polish in my opinion. And last but not least, going through all my unused beauty products, from facial cleansers to makeup and throwing them away because they were just taking up space and cluttering up my shelves and drawers. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  49. sweeks1980 says:

    I got a hair glaze for the first time last week, and while it doesn’t seem to have made a difference in terms of color, it seems to have done a great job making my hair soft.

  50. Jessica says:

    If I had to pick a favorite Shakespearean play, it would definitely be Much Ado about Nothing

  51. Lulubelle says:

  55. lauren says:

    that picture of eyeshadows is to die for!

  56. Miki says:

    I’ve been growing my bangs out!

  57. Kayte CookWatts says:

    I don’t know if she is actually my style icon, but Juliette Lewis has inspired me to change my look a few times. We look alike, so when she dyed her hair black, I went for it, even though everyone was telling me I was too pale.Looks fantastic!

  58. Susan T. says:

    I am so overdue for a haircut! I think I’m going to chop a lot of it off when I finally get that appointment!

  59. Jen. says:

    I think you’re right- I had acupuncture this morning, and it’s raining here in AZ. Awesome! I have changed my hair recently. I chopped it all off! I went from slightly longer than shoulder length to like… 2-3″ of hair.

  60. Casey says:

    I’ve started applying coconut oil to my hair 1x a week! It’s making it much softer!

  66. Samantha M says:

  81. Michelle-addicted to beauty since 1999 says:

    My style icon lately has been Cara Delevingne. I love just about everything I see her in. She seems to add a bit of edge to whatever she is wearing and I like that. Plus she is amazingly flawless!

  107. Jennifer M-K says:

    Have you been doing anything different with your hair? – Yes…I actually just had it layered and straightened!

  119. Jen says:

    I use a lighted drugstore makeup mirror near a window to apply makeup.

    Silly Men

  129. Michelle says:

  130. Aimen says:

    I recently got a HAIRCUT! T.T and they used a razor so it could flow nicely butttt now it’s splitting even more! So of course I should go in soon and get it more trimmed…
    I guess I’ll have it lighter, and shorter, for the hotter seasons coming soon!

  131. Deanna says:

    Ooooh so many eye shadows! I want to swatch them all LOL.

    I’m currently using the bathroom mirror to put on my makeup, but I’m hoping to organize my vanity soon so that I can actually use it for applying makeup instead of just using it to pile all of my palettes on.

  132. Janis G says:

    ooooh I hope I win! I’m so getting hooked on visiting Sephora at least once a week!

  133. Jessica says:

    Long time lurker, first time poster. Love the blog. Karen has definitely changed the way I shop for makeup products. I feel so empowered in Ulta and Sephora with the blog at my fingertips. On a recent trip to Walgreens, I saw sale tags for Milani products. I immediately went to the blog to get recommendations for the Milani lip glosses. Swatches galore! I stood in the aisle for about 10 minutes reading and scrolling. Finally, purchased some glosses. Karen was so right abut the cream glosses. I have been wearing Bare Secret like it is going out of style! Thanks so much!!!

  134. Amy says:

    I love brownies

  135. Kelsie Cook says:

    I don’t have a handheld mirror specifically for applying makeup; however, a good one is definitely on my list of things to get! I’m tempted to pick up a case of TF’s bronzer just for the large mirror that comes in that lovely, golden compact.

  136. brittany says:

    love sephora!

  137. Aida says:

    I love Shakespeare! To name a few of my favorites: The Taming of the Shrew, Much Ado About Nothing, Hamlet, Richard the Third, A Midsummer Night’s Dream :).

  140. Benni says:

    Thank you so much for running such a great blog!

  141. Agata says:

    I haven’t done anything new with my hair YET, but I’m planning on cutting it pretty short soon; to my collarbone. Right now it’s almost waist length and it’s getting too much of a hassle to take care of. Kinda nervous, but looking forward to the change!

  165. Marie S says:

    Hey Karen! Awesome giveaway and very, very awesome blog! Ok, you wanted comments, so here goes: to answer one of your proposed questions: I do have a specific mirror for makeup – and the lighting is complete horse s**t! IDK why I use it. I really don’t. Now for a random comment: I just discovered my puppy is highly afraid of the vacuum cleaner. Like, I even move it (turned off) and she pee’s. Which doesn’t work out too well, since she likes to shred paper in the living room, on the carpet. Guest I’ll be spending my Saturday night sweeping and/or tweezering paper pieces off my carpet…

My next planned purchases are Too Faced Size Queen Mascara and MUFE HD Invisible Cover Foundation. I would have purchased them today, but I hit some other mall stores pretty hard and just couldn’t! Next time πŸ˜‰

  179. Mardi says:

    I saw Twelfth Night at the Belasco on Broadway when I was in NYC last year and loved it. They were doing it in rep with Richard the Third so we went and saw that too. Very different but just as great.

    My favorite Shakespearean play is Macbeth. My style icon is Audrey Hepburn<3 I love her vintage style! And I have been recently curling my short to medium hair more often. I do have a mirror that I use for putting makeup:) my favorite fashion designer currently will have to be Marc Jacobs! Marc Jacobs is a fun, flirty collection which captures a woman’s form perfectly.

  230. Dominique F says:

    So I’ve been trying to grow out my hair (I wanna get it to my waist!) but I can never seem to be able to. Once it gets around half-way down my back I have to trim off ~4 inches because of all the split ends πŸ™ And the vicious cycle just keeps repeating! I’m trying to keep my hair routine to a minimum to keep from damaging it further but I have sneaking suspicion I might have to settle for shoulder-length hair

  231. Jennifer says:

    I have a double sided magnified mirror that I got it at fredmeyers but I always use my hellokitty from sephora

  232. Denise Davis says:

  246. I’ve been trying to grow out my bangs, so I’m doing this weird side-braid thing. It wouldn’t be so weird if I could actually french braid, but it will have to do.

    I finally got a new haircut, but now I really want to lighten my hair too. Oh well

  248. My current fashion icon is Katherine Hepburn.

  249. Ru says:

    I hate getting my hair cut but it’s waaay overdue and the only thing that can be done with this mop is a ponytail.

  250. Chelsea H. says:

    “Have you been doing anything different with your hair?”

    Yes! My hair was badly damaged after dying it dark brown and then taking it back to my natural light blonde color. The ends were breaking off and large clumps of hair kept falling out. So two days ago, I went and got a haircut. My hairdresser cut off all the damaged hair. I actually hadn’t asked to have it so short – I wanted it to touch my shoulders. Instead it is right under my chin! I know it was necessary to cut it but I’m still mourning the loss of my long hair despite the damage πŸ™

  251. Priya says:

    I recently cut of all my hair into a short bob. Its been a struggle figuring out how to style it, but I’m totally in love with it!

  252. Erica says:

    Lived in the same place over 15 years. I have a lighted double sided mirror that magnifies on the opposite side. I’m as blind as 3 bats, so I need the magnified side to apply my eyeliner on my lids.

  253. Meagan says:

    Have you been doing anything different with your hair?

    No, I hardly ever do anything to my hair!

  254. Bianca Rogoveanu says:

    I have a round mirror that i use only to do my makeup!

  255. Katelyn D says:

    What’s your favorite Shakespearean play?
    Romeo and Juliet of course! O the romanticism and romance…

    A style icon in your life?
    Kate Middleton

    Do you have a mirror that you use specifically for applying makeup?
    A rialto magnification mirror

    Do you remember the address of wherever you were living five years ago?
    Yes it was the home I was raised in for the first 18 years of my life in Nebraska. I moved away 6 years ago and last month I found out it caught on fire. Thankfully no humans were hurt. It’s amazing how even years later you can have an attachment to something you no longer own.

    i think iam the last girl who posting comment here.
    i read all the comments above and i really love all the comments you all have posted here.

    iam very proud to say that iam an artist. the friend of aesthetics… and most of the time iam spending my time with art. the creation of beauty is an art.

    iam really impressive to this blog. because of the reason that the blog have the deep flow through the aesthetic view. that’s why i made this blog as book mark everyday i wish to move my gaze through the blog . actually iam not doing the same interest in my Facebook account.

    The purpose of art is washing the dust of
    daily life off our souls. and the make up and finishing for improve the beauty of our external appearances.
    this also an art…
    A work of art is the unique result of a unique temperament. and the beautician also an great artist of external skin art.

    iam a student of art and multimedia. but i love to be a great writer like Pablo Neruda. Shakespeare handled most of the serious topics but Neruda is about the romantic author.

    all over the world i respects the beautiful things .. so right now you may thinking then what about ugly things.? the reality is through my eyes always everything have beauty. because iam an artist too more than a student.

    thank you so much for give such a way to express my comment.

    special thanks to the owner of the blog.

    I DO have a special mirror I use for makeup… it’s from Pottery Barn years ago, and it’s a round mirror on an accordion hinge, so that it pulls away from the wall almost right to my nose.

  292. Liz says:

    About 6 months ago, my husband built me the most BOMB makeup mirror to go over my dressing table. He made a big wood frame and inset 6 lights into it, 3 on either side of the mirror in the middle. The lights are 3 way, which is even better. So much awesomeness I can hardly stand it.

    My entire life my goal has always been to get a haircut that looked great up or down with little to no styling in the morning. Finally, after 19 years of multiple cuts and different bangs and stylings, this goal has been realized! I love my swoopy, flippy hair and my side bangs and I love that all I have to do is wash it and let it air dry and with a couple flips and some curling here and there it’s done. I’m so happy to be able to say that I truly love the hair I have and don’t feel the need to change a thing!

  334. Chloe says:

    lately, I haven’t been applying any heat to my hair! My hair is naturally very curly, which I like, except it is curliest at the root, which I don’t like. Nonetheless, I decided to give it a little break from the flat iron and its been great so far! Thanks!

    Of course I remember where I was living 5 years ago because I may be 25 but I JUST moved out of my moms house almost one year ago. I love my mom and my brother so much I stayed till I was 25 and loved it. Now that I’ve left the best I only managed to love 2.2 miles away. Hehe. πŸ˜‰

    I actually just got my hair cut for the first time in…..over a year! I know that’s crazy what can I say I’m lazy. I also haven’t wanted to take any length of but I had to it was so damaged and dead. So I got about 3 inches chopped off and got some layers put in. Its looks so much better and I just got some new shampoo and conditioner from Ulta by SheaMoisture and it works great!

  345. Mich says:

    I do have a special mirror for applying make up. It has 5x magnification and my make up has been coming out a lot better since I started using it.

  346. Joanna says:

    I’ve been looking to customize my own little vanity complete with The Most Perf Natural Lighting Ever, and so far so good! Hopefully I’ll be done with my setup by next weekend πŸ™‚

    My hair is boring, but I’m loving Living Proof No Frizz products to make it through winter

  348. Paige says:

    Style in my opinion is personal so i take bits & pieces from things and people regularly. But HELLO Oscar night!? One of my favorite red carpet events of the year
    5 years ago i was living in Huntington Beach, CA
    Yeah, i use a double sided regular/magnifying mirror for makeup and i love it

    Funny story of the week – i usually have some amount of makeup on when i leave the house every day, but Wednesday last week it didn’t happen and when i got to my class my teacher looked right at me and asked my name (we’ve been in school for 5 weeks now) and i laughed and said “Paige” and she said “Oh, i.. didn’t recogn..- errr didn’t remember. Sorry.”
    Pretty crazy what filled in brows & mascara do for you eh?

  349. I’ve been growing my hair out because I intend to donate it to Locks of Love when it gets long enough. It’s been really hard to deal with this much hair, but it’s worth it.

    The mirror I use for applying my makeup was actually a Christmas gift about 2 years ago. It’s the Reflections LED Lighted Collection Mirror from Conair and it was purchased at Ulta (one of my favorite stores). I like the magnification side because it’s about 6x the magnification of the other side and I can really get close and put those falsies on.

    My favorite designer right now is Cynthia Rowley. I like a lot of higher end fashion as well,but I always able to find her stuff at tj maxx for ridiculously reasonable prices and her dresses are perfperfect for day to night wear. Flattering and work appropriate and just basis enough to dress up with acessories. Live her stuff

  396. vanessa holman says:

    Also. As someone with thick, red, curly, and occasionally frizzy hair– I’ve been using alot of at home hair masks. My favorite mask is from lush, but it’s expensive so I alternate between using coconut oil and mashed avocados. My hair is soft and shiny and smells amazing without looking greasy afterwards. So easy and cheap

    Yesterday I tried out the TRESemmΓ© 7 Day Keratin Smooth line. Shampoo, conditioner and Heat Activated Treatment. Locks are smooth and shiny. Though I haven’t shampooed yet, so no comment yet on how long it lasts. After reading some reviews, I used less of the treatment than the instructions suggest. I think that was a good move.

  410. Trude says:

    I have been doing something different with my hair! My hair has some body and curl to it, but blows out straight easily. Sleeping on it in a bun just makes it messy and frizzy, but I’ve found that putting it up in a bun on Day 1, still damp with some Aveda curl cream and my bangs sideswept, means that on Day 2 I have lovely loose waves (and the evening of Day 1 if I’m going out, like yesterday), and Day 3 it goes up in a messy pony. Just some Dry Remedy Oil on Day 2 to calm my curls and a little dry shampoo around my hairline on Day 3 and I’m good to go! πŸ™‚

  411. Regina Reed says:

    I HAVE been doing something different with my hair – how did you know?! I’ve been NOT doing as much to it, and it looks a million times better than it ever has.

    Yes! I have been doing something differently to my hair. I have been adding honey to my rinse out conditioner. It is supposed to be great for moisture, and it really has helped.

    I’ve actually been trying to wash my hair less since I was washing it every day and I think I was drying out my scalp because it was starting to overproduce oil.. TMI, i know!! I also started using a homemade apple cider vinegar rinse to help with my scalp. so far so good! only down side to the ACV rinse is that you smell like vinegar until your hair is completely dry… πŸ™

  433. MarΓ­a Luisa Molina says:

    Hello! Thanks for your amazingness with your reviews and info of makeup! I wanted to join the contest to get the Sephora certificate, for that I can tell you a million things, but basically I wanted to let you know how much I love makeup, I started using makeup very young, yet I always have been careful about choosing my products. I think most of us girls always think we have a flaw, maybe the nose, maybe youre hair, it could be anything, (in our crazy minds) with time I’ve learned about discovering my beauty, and the only way I achieved this was while I realized that ever girl and woman are beautiful an unique, whenever I judge myself, I was so hard to me, until one day I woke up. I don’t believe in makeup as a tool to change you you are, but as a helper to drive attention to your beautiful features. Now I don’t have large and voluminous lips, and now I cant believe how much I love red & pink lips thanks to the stains! I never thought! I tried the Maybelline markers, yet not my favorite, then the Victorias Secret Pouts and they are too pink and glsossy, now my favourites are the Revlon Just bitten Balm, and I want to bad to get the Sephora lip tars.

    I also wanted to give a few tips to the girls reading this whenever it comes to hair that I discovered, for curly hair you can prepare your own styling gel with linseed. Put half of a cup of linseed in 1 cup of water in a pan, heat it until boiling, you will see that with time it will turn sticky, once you do that take the seeds out and ready. Wait until it gets colder, and you can save it on your refrigerator. The most thick it gets, you will get more hold, you can even used it for crazy hairdos if you ticken it until getting a serum like potion. This will leave your hair amazing, with body, shiny, and soft. Everyone will as you what you did!

    Please give me the Sephora certificate.
