You may know Karen Robinovitz as the Creatrix of the uber hot cosmetics brand, Purple Lab. However, to many people, myself included, we know Karen as that eternal ray of sunshine you always seek out to put a little bounce back in your step. Today is Karen’s birthday and rather than do the typical birthday gift, I decided that a blog post letting her know, and the world, how much people love her, would be the best gift ever.Â So I rounded up some of our friends who wanted to share some birthday wishes…
Melanie Notkin of Savvy Auntie: Karen and I immediately bonded when we met just a few months ago! And now, I can’t get enough of Karen and her infectious energy!! It’s almost as addictive as her beauty products! Happy birthday my beautylista! Adore you! XOXO
Kimmie from Kitten Lounge: Karen, you always think of ways that you can help me (and others too) – even when I know you’re super busy and barely have a second. It’s rare to find someone with tons of energy, honesty and a heart to do good! Everyone should be blessed to have a Karen as a friend! Happy Birthday!
Amber from Beauty Blogging Junkie: I love that Karen is a REAL embodiment of Carrie Bradshaw when every single (or not single) girl who lives in New York who has ever held a pen claims that they’re “just like her.” Karen’s effervescence, kindness and general FUNNESS garners her a spot at the top of my must-hang-out-with-all-the-time list. There’s no one I’d rather take a trip to Glampa with.
Kristin from Fashion Style Beauty: Karen Robinovitz, my friend, my mentor and my fellow fashion obsessive, what can I say? The most giving, funniest person I know and the light of everyone’s lives and heart, you have made more of a positive impact on my life than almost anyone I’ve known and I am honored to love you and call you friend. Happy Birthday and here’s toasting to much success coupled with shopping in Paris in Lanvin on your next one. I adore you. MWAH!
Felicia from FeliciaSullivan.com: Happy Birthday, sweet girl. You are an endless source of joy and inspiration. From your sartorial genius to your warm heart, I’m delighted
to know you!
Christine from Temptalia: Happy birthday, Karen! Enjoy yourself and your success!
Sharon, Communications Director for Purple Lab: What I love about is Karen is she is not only my boss but she is my mentor, sister, role model and best friend!
Todd, the awesome husband: To the world, you may be one person. But to me, you are the world!
And lastly, me. From the day I began reading your book I felt this instant kinship with you. I feel so blessed that our lives actually crossed paths. You are such an amazing person and sometimes I wish I could bottle some of your energy and creativity and sell it (I would so be a millionaire!) You have such a loving heart and compassionate soul. No one could ask for a better friend than you. Much love and happy birthday! xoxo
