What’s up, weekenders? I hope your Saturday’s rolling, rolling, rolling right along. Today’s been an errands/chores day for me — grocery shopping, post office, laundry and cleaning. But all work and no play makes Karen a dull girl, so I managed to sneak in some e-surfing too.

I’m off to Trader Joe’s! What have you been up to today? 🙂
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. This weekend I’m workin’ with my web hosting company to move Makeup and Beauty Blog to better digs. Well, they’re doing the work. My involvement’s limited to crossing fingers. 🙂 Apologies in advance for the loss of any recent comments or other goofiness that may occur this afternoon and early tomorrow. It should all be over soon, and once it is the blog should load a little faster.
