What's on your plate?
Hello there, ladies and gents!   Keeping in line with all the fun and interactive threads asking about your most recent halls, items you have your eyes on, what you're currently wearing, what's your hair routine, and more, I've decide to branch out and ask:   "What's on your plate?"   The beauty world doesn't just stop at skin care and cosmetics, it also goes hand in hand with your overall health and well-being, so with that, I'm curious to see what we're all chowing down and snacking on be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or inbetween!   For those with apps that help count calories or to those who just want to keep a log, here's a place to share, possibly find and share some recipes, and even tips on maintaining a balanced diet.   Don't just share food items, but even drinks! I'm a huge fan of tea and at least have a cup of green tea a day (anti-oxidants) and drink plenty of water.   For lunch today, I had:   -Brown rice -Steamed egg -Steamed red snapper with green onion, sesame oil, and black pepper -Gai lan (it's a type of Chinese vegetable/greens)   Now, tell me, Beauty Talk world, what do you have?

The Canadian Peeps!
So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers.  A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc.   I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board.   I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow.    - I recently posted that Nail Polish Canada has free shipping on any orders for a limited time.   EDITED:   Anyone interested in getting Tonymoly products you can contact them via their Canadian Facebook page to place an order.  5$ shipping, free over purchases 50$.  I think they have a store in Pacific Mall in Markham ON   Tarte now ships to Canada!

Your Views on... ULTA
I dislike the customer service and coupon restrictions. Just tried a coupon that gives NEARLY everything off 20% (even UD) and it didn't work. I wanted the Marc Jacob Daisy So Fresh purse spray. (Not at Sephora)  Another horror was me driving to one 30 minutes away and kept checking up on the limited edition OPI polishes that were out of stock. They offered to get the items and transfer them to the store. IT TOOK A F****ING MONTH. Of course I got it for free because I was b****ing and whining and probably attempted to cause a scene. I complained about the driving and their incompetence.  God, what a nightmare. I love you Sephora.

Fun BT Mini-Meetup!
Jozkid came to visit me today!!     Yay!   We went to the Maine Mall store and she got to see how completely awesome the team there is. I'm so lucky to have them as my "home team", and it was soo fun showing them off!   I had a $25 giftcard and purchased  two things. But here's my total haul:   My total was 32 cents.     Then we went to lunch. Yummerz. No pics of that sorry, I inhaled it all too fast.   Now she's driving home and I hope she beats the tourists!   I had such a great time, she's super duper sweet and FUNNY!!! Can't wait to meet up with her again sometime.

New Trans-Canadian Cosmetics Travelling Box/Train!!
Toot toot! Round three of the Trans-Canadian travelling cosmetics train is now *closed* *Update*   Here is the new train order! A couple of stations are friends of mine, I will be passing on their addresses to the people sending to them. Please PM the person sending to you *now* with your full name and address. If you don't have an address by Monday please contact me.  If I have missed somebody on the train please contact me asap     That said, Toot toot! All aboard, here we go!   Ont: 1)      Bcteagirl 2)      Ivyxox: Passed on to Ivy, August 21st 3)      Poornima: Arrived August 24th 4)      LovingLondon   QC: 5) HappyGen   Sask: 6) Gayle (friend)   BC: 7) Heartsmyface 8) Deesa (friend)   Ont:   9)Firespinner 10)  KBmatthews 11)  Yullz 12)  Bcteagirl   I rotated out some items so that there will be new items for the returning members. I added in some brand new Julep, Kiels, and a couple MAC.  I hope everybody has a grand time, I had lots of fun putting this together! I am meeting Ivy very shortly to pass on the box to the next station!     ************************************************** **** You also need to be able to meet the rules in a timely manner, keep the box moving within three days. You need to be able to post photos of what you take and link them in this thread.   This is a longer train, so if you have any travel plans in the next 2-3 months, you need to include this information when you contact me.   You need to: 1) Post in this thread 2) PM me, include full name, full address, if you were on a previous train, and if not the info above (Member for how long, somebody else who can vouch for you). This is a second round of a box, so there is a HUGE variety in here, so much great stuff (thank you previous participants!!). Very exciting to start a box that is such a great mix to start with. We had so much fun on the previous train (and it moved so fast!) that I know this will be great!   BY AGREEING TO PARTICIPATE YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE RULES!   ****NO RESERVE****   ****No Swatching items from the box****   ****ITEMS THAT MAY BE INCLUDED****   ALL SEALED ITEMS are welcome, UNLESS sealed   NO: Nothing you dip your fingers in if opened NO opened mascara NO opened lip wands (the kind you dunk the wand in or things like stila lipglaze). If any of these are new, tape them shut and label them as new.  Leave other lipsticks/etc untapped so people can see the colours.   NOTHING THAT CAN'T BE CLEANED or SANITIZED   all cosmetic/skin care samples are fine   ***Other: For full sized items, there is a strict one in one out policy for drug store items: ie: If you want to trade in a drug store item, you must be taking out a drug store item (Feel free to take out extra drug store items lol). This will ensure that this box is largely of higher quality cosmetics (While still allowing for some variety). There will be just a few drug store items per box    *Be polite *Don't keep the box longer than a few days (please try to keep the box moving in a timely manner)    * All packages must include a tracking number, Send me (@Bcteagirl) the tracking number.   *TRADE ON OR ABOVE the value of the item you took -don't take all of one kind of item, for example, if there are 3 of one perfume, take only 1 so that others will have a chance to try them - One in/one out rule for any drugstore cosmetics (which are limited) -post in a picture and/or text what you took and left -package things carefully and put things that could leak in ziplock bags     **YOU MUST have a tracking number for your package, and it must be posted here!   Once the train order is set, you need to PM the person who is sending to you your address right away, don't wait until the train is close to you!

Sneek Peaks Via Ulta (sorry Sephora!)
My dear, sweet hubby stopped off at an Ulta today to pick up an allusive Too Faced blush for me. In the bag was a flyer for the upcoming 21 Days of Beauty that begins 9/7. The 2 biggest things that caught my eye were:   Too Faced: Matte Smoky Eye kit with shadows, eyeliner & mascara 9/10 & 9/18   Urban Decay: Exclusive shadow box with 9 favorites and 3 new shades. 9/7, 9/19 & 9/27   There are no pictures but it also lists events for Benefit, It Cosmetics (with new brushed that are already online), Tarte with an exclusive Nude collection (doesn't say what though) and more. It says to check out Ulta but that page says 21 days event is over and to check back in the fall.   I'm getting so excited!

Needed Help w/ new VIB Perks, etc.!
Hi @mylam ! I seen your post earlier but I am using a new tablet and trying to get used to it (used to a laptop), & struggling a bit over here! lol Anyway, I was trying to answer your post to hopefully you will see this and maybe it will help, or maybe someone has helped you already. Just in case is how I figured it as I would want someone to help me out!  (Oh, and if you took your post down or moved it, sorry!  Again new machine = struggles for me just for a hot minute so don't be upset just friend to help! )   SO, here is what I got :   On the points tip, have you logged out then back in to your account on the web site? That helps most of the time.   So, did you reach VIB in-store or on--line? Idk much about in-store shopping b/c I have only went once (due to the fact it is SO far away, I could literally buy a bunch of goodies for the massive [V6, 4Wheele Drive, Takes a lot of gas] amount of fuel I would use to get their & back home). Sad eye's too b/c I need a lesson or two.... or 5! hehe So when you reached VIB did you get one of the perks they are offering like the primers or oils, etc.? I don't remember what the VIB gift was but I know the VIB Rouge was a Bite mini lipstick and new cards (one for a facial/ makeover I do believe). Oh, that does remind me, the VIB gift was a card for like 20% off and a facial/ makeover! (Wow, I have a memory ! lol Did you get your 2 red card for 10/ 20 % off (think it's 20 and a makeover/ facial card)? Did you get you perk of choice? I am probably forgetting something but I do know the cards are correct (or close to correct w/ the %'s off, when it comes to VIB or VIB Rouge) & your VIB perk of choice or something like that. So, what did you leave w/ again OR receive via. shipping? Hope I helped some and if you didn't get your cards and so on just give Sephoraa call and they will take care of it I'm sure of it (if u shopped in - store and live along way away then they can probably mail it to you since it's your stuff for your new stat!) Good Luck and Again Hope this Helps !

Bath and Body Works vs The Body Shop?!
Hello beauty babes!   So as this lovely spring day is coming to a close, I would like to know which you all prefer, Bath and Body Works or The Body Shop?! My friend is obsessed with both stores and is a uncertified hoarder of both (along with philosophy) haha She works for Bath and Body Works but loves both stores for various reasons and doesnt seem to have a preference for one over the other. I myself LOVE philosophy. But I've found myself just starting to get into the whole "body lotion, body butter, spritzer" bit. So I would like to see which stores or brands you guys like better for a full body pampering kit and why?!

VIB renewal Makeover
Hello all!   I recently spent enough to renew VIB through 2015. One of the perks is the 45 minute full makeover. I will be attending the wedding of a friend in a different state on Friday September 12th. I'd like to use my perk as my wedding day makeup.   I am nervous about booking an apointment in a Sephora I've never been to before. I live in South Carolina and the wedding will be taking place in New Jersey. Do you think I should go ahead and try to book the makeover and just pack my own stuff in case it's a disaster? Can anyone here make a suggestion for a makeup artist I should request?   The closest mall location is the Quaker Bridge Mall.   Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks friends

My new kitty
A while back I had made a look using the colors of the stray cat that took shelter in my home, I've fed and given her water ever since. This is the second time she's had kittens, unfortunately the last litter didn't survive and from what I know she only had two this time but only one has made it to the barely opening eyes stage. She had them on July 1st. I haven't named the kitty yet, but here's a picture of his(I'm thinking it's a he) cuteness.  Taken today.

Rest in Peace to the lovely Lauren Bacall
What a depressing two days we have had. First, the untimely death of the great Robin Williams yesterday. And now, today, the beautiful Lauren Bacall. She was not only a gorgeous, talented woman, she was also a devoted wife to Humphrey Bogart and mother to his children. We lost another great one today, and although she will now be reunited with her Bogey, she's going to be missed forever by the ones she left behind. Rest in peace beautiful Betty.
