Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 524 - If this isn’t what the kittens are wearing, they will be soon. Tabs looked dazzling today on his morning walk in his new cat couture sequinned red vest. He’d heard a rumor that he wasn’t pushing the envelope anymore when it came to feline fashion, so he set out to prove that he’s still the top meow-llennial style icon in Southern Novato. It doesn’t matter how long he’s been a kitty supermodel. He’s incapable of being out o...

Saturday Surfing, October 20th, 2018 - Morning, kitty cat! Short-ish Saturday Surfing today because I’m about to get Connor ready for a Halloween party at her school, and we need to work out her face painting situation, as evident by the somewhat funky monarchs there in the pic (that one on the bottom tho, ha ha!). It was a test run I did on my swatching arm with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils. Now let’s see if I can pull off something “Tabs approved” because you know how picky he is...

With Oribe Flash Form Finishing Spray Wax, Luminous Locks Are a Few Sprays Away - OK, so, the thing about Oribe Flash Form Finishing Spray Wax is that it’s so good that you will never want to part with it, but it’s also $42 for a dainty 4.2-oz. bottle. But…but…but…GLOSSY LOCKS. I don’t think my hair has ever looked this shiny in my entire life, and that’s no small feat because my ends have this really annoying habit of drying out on me, especially when I’m in a blow-drying phase, like I usu...

Stitch Fix or Trunk Club? - Asking about these clothing subscription services for a friend (that friend being me, myself and I, LOL). It dawned on me the other day that I really should get help with my wardrobe situation, because it’s been in dire straights for, oh, about two years? Basically, my pre-baby clothes don’t fit anymore, and I haven’t been wanting to spend the time or money to update my wardrobe to fit my post-Connor body. Not to say that I’m walking around in the daylight hours ...

This Is What Happens When Your Older Brother Is a Cat - You beg your mom to put purple sequined cat ears on you, and then you wear them 24/7. 😸 And here is what happens when you watch your mom painting her face all the time and find out that there’s a face painting booth at the preschool BBQ, LOL! This was last weekend. Connor didn’t want anything to do with it at first, but then El Hub said, “Do you want to wear makeup just like mommy?” and her eyes widened with amazement and she sprinted...

Chanel Has a New CC Cream! $55 Chanel Super Active Complete Correction Broad Spectrum SPF 50 - Why, oh, why am I still livin’ on a prayer like it’s 80 degrees outside? Oh, yeah. Because it was 77 yesterday! Bay Area weather is so weird. We get these spells of the muggiest, summery-est weather right around Halloween, which are usually followed by a couple of very rainy, chilly weeks. I’m not complaining. It’ll be sweater weather soon enough. Anyway, to go with this warm spell we’re having, I...

Does Keeping Your Summer Tan Through Fall and Winter Matter to You? - I’m just curious. I read about this bronzing face mist from St. Tropez that you can get at Sephora for $30. You spray it on your face and neck, and apparently it’s like a misting self-tanner spray that gives you some color without making a mess on your clothes or hands. I’m intrigued. It made me think about fading summer tans. Like, this is not a big issue for me (obvi), but I do put on a little color during the summer. I...

NARS Newness! Some of My Go-To NARS Eyeshadow Singles and Duos Have Been Relaunched, and There Are New Tinted Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Bases - Forget for a second the ongoing trend of beauty brands relaunching products in smaller sizes while charging the same price for them (because that’s what’s happening here with the recently relaunched NARS eyeshadow duos and singles), and try instead to focus on the tantalizing taupes, gorgeous golds and beaming bronzes in these NARS eyeshadows, which al...

5 Things I’ve Been Loving Lately - 1. Lilly Pulitzer on sale at Pottery Barn Lilly Pulitzer is an American apparel and textile brand that does BOLD, prints, and even though I can see how royal blue and hot pink decor can come across as tween/teenybopper…I don’t care. 🙂 Where does it say you have to give up teal just because you’re an adult? But I digress… Lilly Pulitzer collaborated with Pottery Barn last summer, and now almost everything they created together is on sale. I snagged this cu...

Let’s Talk Makeup Brushes: Which Ones Do You Always Use, and Which Ones Do You Never Touch? - Makeup brushes! — I HAZ THEM. And I’m assuming you do too. I’m gonna go out on a limb (not really) and guess that you have more than a few brushes in your collection, so tell me, friend, which makeup brushes do you always use, and which ones do you never (or very rarely) touch? First of all, I’m much pickier about eye brushes than I am about face brushes, which I think is because my lids are sensit...
