My Life

Merry Merry Merry Christmas

I hope you all have the most lovely holiday.
Thank you for being amazing friends, for supporting my dreams, sharing even just a small part of your lives with me and for bringing so much light and joy into my life.
I never feel like I can give back nearly what I am given through this blog but I hope you know that I am always trying.
When I started the blog I did so to help other women and that is still my goal, but somewhere along the way I realized that I was being helped far more than I could possibly be helping in return.
I feel indebted to you.
Always.
I hope my genuine love and appreciation is felt through my posts as much as your love is felt through your words.

Sending so much love to you and your families!
I’ll see you after the holiday!

    Cara, I was always afraid to try makeup, because I was terrified that it would look awful. Your blog changed all that, because you’ve made it seem so simple and fun. Thank YOU.

    Cara, I’m not a blog person, but I discovered yours over a year ago. Your blog is such an uplifting place, and I’ve always felt a little better and inspired after reading your posts. I’ve found myself rooting for you as you’ve found happiness and success along the way. Thank you for being open about past struggles, and positive about the future! I know you’ve helped inspire many women. Thanks for not hiding your light. I hope to meet you one day!

    I never comment on blogs; However, Cara, I have been reading your blog for about a year and your unfailing enthusiasm, optimism and delight in the fortune of your life shines through my computer screen every post. Your sincerity, generosity and honesty is a delight ( there’s that word again!) – in fact, I think that it is the perfect word to describe you – delightful. I absolutely do not believe in karma (sorry!!) – do believe that we have the capacity to make the most of every situation we find ourselves in – good and bad – your consistent positivity and gung ho, always moving onwards, upwards and forwards is wonderful to see. May you delight in your family and life for evermore.

Love how down-to-earth and humble you are about it all and how you truly appreciate the beauty in everyone. Thanks for all that you do!

    I live overseas but the HAC pack is on its way from the US (pre-ordered on black Friday and had it sent to my mom) and I can’t wait to try it!!

    Merry Christmas! I am one of those who suddenly, as of the last week, CANNOT see any photos. There is no red x or picture icon. There is just nothing there. I’ve always been able to see them but as just a few days ago, they do not appear. I read thru the directions but nothing fits the issue of not seeing anything there. Let me know if there is something else I can do. Thank you!

      I have had the same problem not seeing the pictures until I stopped clicking Cara’s blog from my favorites bar and just Googled maskcara.com. I think I may have needed to update my favorite’s bar. Hope this helps.
