A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway
Win a $50 eGift card from Sephora

“Mrrrrow…” Tabs grumbled to himself. His nemesis, the blue kitty from the house down the hill, was already there, reaching up for what looked like the last box of Caudalie fur cream.

Blast! Tabs had been waiting for this day for weeks, the first annual Bring Your Cat to Sephora Day, and he’d planned to get to the store early, hopefully beating the other cats to the best stuff.

The details were all supposed to have been taken care of. His assistant got him up early and prepped his morning gravy, but the special fur and makeup team he’d hired for the occasion were held up in traffic on the 101.

Unbelievable. The Navy Seals of the feline fur and makeup worlds, and they get waylaid by a little traffic? It’s called problem solving, people!

Cats were everywhere in the store, snatching up all the best products. “Mrow!” Briefly, Tabs considered using brute force to wrest the box of Caudalie cream from the blue kitty’s paws, but with so many witnesses around…

Oh, well, Tabs thought to himself, there’s always next year.

Good morning, glory! :) Hope your weekend got off to a great start. No complaints out here. I ended up not going to that party in the city last night. 11 p.m. was just too late for me, so I just watched some TV until I passed out.

This is random, but I just had the most amazing meyer lemon croissant. Perfectly flaky, buttery layers, and the lemony parts weren’t too sweet or heavy. It was like eating a fluffy, buttery, lemony pastry cloud…

Anywho, while I relive that awesome croissant in my daydreams, have you entered this weekend’s $50 Sephora eGift card giveaway yet? I hope you do, and don’t forget — there are two ways to win.

What folks are saying…

“Hi Karen. Oh my goodness! I can’t believe I won! :O Thank you so much! You, Tabs, and your blog are amazing! Thank you for keeping me updated on all things beauty and more importantly, for keeping me entertained! Keep doing your thing! Thank you again.”

“Thanks so much, Karen. Just in case you were wondering what I got with it, I decided to go with the Clarisonic Mia–I’ve been wanting it for years now, but have never purchased it because of the price. Your eCard helped me finally buy it! I look forward to using it. Thanks again!”
-Jane

“Shut the front door! OMG Karen, you have made my day. :) I’m sick in bed with the flu and this has just cheered me up immensely!!!!!!!! BTW, I’m the one that sent you that pic of my pug in a wig a few weeks back LOL! Thanks again, honestly, I’m beyond giddy right now.”

“Oh my goodness! Thank you so much Karen (and Tabs, of course)! I really appreciate this! I’d been eyeing the Anastasia brow pencil in Strawburn to match my red hair!”

A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway
Win a $50 eGift card from Sephora

G’morning and happy CAT-urday! It’s shaping up to be a beautiful day here in Marin County. The sun is shining, not a cloud in the sky, and I have a great big cup of coffee by my side. Hot — just like the spread Tabs did in Playcat a few years back. :)

I don’t have much on my plate today. Nothing exciting, at least. Just some housework, laundry (it never ends!), a workout and my grocery shopping. I’ve been totally on a cooking show kick lately, especially Giada at Home and America’s Test Kitchen, so I have all these ideas for meals I’d like to try.

I’m almost done with Angelfall, that young adult book with the fallen angels in it. Turned out to be pretty darn good. If time permits, I might also take another crack at that purple smokey eye from Make Up For Ever’s fall campaign.

Hope your weekend got off to a good start. Before you click away, have you entered this weekend’s Sephora eGift card giveaway? If you win it’s $50. Enough for a well-deserved treat.

A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway
Win a $50 eGift card from Sephora

Greetings, gorgeous, and splendiferous salutations! Happy, happy Saturday. :) In case you were wondering, no, you have not just entered Oz; however, you are about to enter this weekend’s $50 Sephora eGift card giveaway (I hope!).

Nothing new to report from out here in partly cloudy Novato, California. Been watching lots of the Olympics lately with Tabs and El Hub. The other night during one of the swimming events, it occurred to me that I jog just a wee bit faster than those swimmers swim, LOL!

Today, I’m driving down to visit my friend Jen and her little boy (My “nephew.” I’m the cool aunt.) in San Jose, which is about 70 miles from here. I’m taking Jen to the MAC counter because she wants to learn more about eye makeup.

Tabs will be holding down the fort here at MBB headquarters while I’m gone.

Oh — he has a message for you. “Meow,” which loosely translates, “Good luck in the giveaway, and have a great day.”

What folks are saying…

What’s your stance on cake for breakfast? I’m sitting here with a half a sheet of chocolate cake in front of me (leftover from a birthday party El Hub’s coworkers threw him), and truth be told, it looks a lot tastier than my usual gruel (aka oatmeal with almond milk).

It’s one of those talking cakes… You know the ones. This one is saying, “Ooh, Karen! Chocolate cake is the breakfast of champions!”

LOL! We’ll see how long my willpower lasts. I’m guessing about another five minutes, or until the coffee finishes brewing, whichever comes first.

And speaking of coffee, do you ever have coffee after dinner? I wish, WISH I could, but it would keep me up at night. If I have anything caffeinated after dinner, it’s straight to Insomnia Land for me.

Oh, but coffee with dessert is so divine, isn’t it?

Well, I guess that settles it. I’m having cake and coffee for breakfast today! :)

Would you like a piece? Enter this weekend’s Sephora eCard giveaway, and I’ll go get you a slice.

Hello-hello, and happy Saturday, sweet friend! I’m feeling unusually perky right now, which is weird because morning isn’t usually my best time of day (I’m lucky if I can hold a conversation involving monosyllabic answers before 9), but on rare occasions I wake up with a random burst of energy, WHEEEEE!

I have no idea how I’m going to be able to sit still in the car today… El Hub and I are driving up to Redding to visit his parents, and it’s about a four-hour drive. That’s a lot shorter than the trip across the Pacific ocean when they lived in Hawaii, but it’s still a trek.

We haven’t seen them in a while, so it should be fun. I invited Tabs, but he said he “already has plans with Beyonce and Jay-Z.” :)

What are your plans today? Whatever they are, I hope they involve entering this weekend’s Sephora eCard giveaway.
