The Walking Dead - Theories, Questions, & General Excitement!
OFF-TOPIC thread devoted to just The Walking Dead-- Anyone who loves the show is welcome to geek out about it here!! Let's talk about past OR present story lines, theorize, ask questions about things we might not have understood, grieve for lost characters, explain what makes us fans, show off TWD-related merchandise, etc.  Oh and memes of course!  We should probably try to use the SPOILER TAGS in here when talking about story lines so we don't accidentally ruin anyone else's "viewing experience"! (FYI the spoiler button is at the top of your post box, the circular symbol right after  ABC)   First, I just want to say how I came to I love this show. I am not generally a fan of zombie stuff (well, I liked the original Dawn of the Dead, but I think that's because I got to fantasize about living in a mall!)   It was season 2 or 3 when I accidentally got hooked. Some friends of mine without cable asked me to DVR the show for them, so I did for a few weeks. I'd planned to just busy myself otherwise when they came over to watch, but I wound up having a nasty flu the night they finally showed up and I was glued to my recliner. I thought I'd just close my eyes and sleep, but I was sucked in from the start, and since I'd missed a season or two, I kept pausing it to ask my friends questions "Why is he.." "How did that...?"    Then I went back and watched all the previous stuff to be caught up, so I kinda watched it Pulp Fiction-style.   The story lines are so complex and intriguing that you don't even notice the gore after a (very short) while. It's more suspenseful than scary, and also sad, and funny, and more than anything: heartwarming (yes, really). It's really all about survival and how people fight to live (and save their loved ones) even when there's really not much to live for. (I suffer with severe depression and other issues, so that is the part that kinda inspires me most of all.)    Doesn't hurt that Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus are so hot, either.       SO ANYHOOZ....    Regarding the most recent episode from 2.16.14: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Anyone else think Lizzie is one evil little kid? My gawd, I seriously thought she was going to suffocate baby Judith the other night. And after seeing her cut up the rabbits, I'm pretty sure now she was the one feeding rats to the walkers at the prison, and doing other weird stuff with them.

And after seeing her cut up the rabbits, I'm pretty sure now she was the one feeding rats to the walkers at the prison, and doing other weird stuff with them. Spoiler (Highlight to read) My boyfriend actually thinks that it was LIZZIE who killed Karen and David at the prison, and Carol took the heat for her since she's been sort of a mother figure to her. Seems legit, actually. My boyfriend actually thinks that it was LIZZIE who killed Karen and David at the prison, and Carol took the heat for her since she's been sort of a mother figure to her.

Spoiler (Highlight to read) At any rate, I'm really glad Carol's back, I was actually mad at Rick for sending her away.  At any rate, I'm really glad Carol's back, I was actually mad at Rick for sending her away.  Spoiler (Highlight to read) I really wonder if everyone will be reunited or if things are going to split into like 4 different story lines now.

SO EXCITING!!! And who are those new bad-azz looking people!? SO EXCITING!!! Ahhhhhhhhhh glad I got all that out.     What say other fans? Why do you love this show?

Sephora's support
I've never really shopped at Mac Cosmetics before, but Sephora I'm more comfortable. I want to know some differences if any at Mac Cosmetics.  If someone who has worked or shopped there, i want your personal feedback. 1. Are customers allowed to try on their products (just to test it out) even if they don't like it afterwards? 2. Do they gladly give you a take home mini sample of a product your interested in? 3. Do they accept returns for products that have been slightly used? 4. Do they have a positive attitude when helping customers with makeup needs (help nicely and be friendly if you want to have more information) ?

hey, fellow Sephora addicts! i have just started freelancing, and I'm having trouble finding a price to charge people. My kit is all high end, ranging from Anastasia to Tarte and everything in between. the only thing i do not have is everyone's foundation shade. I am still in high school, but i do have an amazing talent for makeup (not to be too confident but what can i say?). How much do you guys suggest i charge?

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?

List of Successful Traders! January 2015
Hey everyone, I updated the list of successful traders. Please post here if you have a successful trade with someone. I will also check with the other Topic and keep this list updated weekly!   Once a person has 5 successful trades I will bold their name, and no longer keep track of successful trades.   I am checking dates of last activity on BT - if a trader has not been active in over 1 year I will remove them from the list, if they become active again I will re-start their successful trades at 1   If you have a bad trade with someone, or you know someone who pulled shenanigans in a TSB - LET ME KNOW! I will keep a document that lists these people. Please PM this information! If you are starting a TSB or are unsure of a trade feel free to ask me for the list of Unsuccessful traders and I will send it to you     Link to the other discussion:

ng?Too Faced email signup discount not working correctly?
I'm not sure if I'm just misunderstanding something or if there is actually something wrong? I'm trying to place an order from Too Faced and signed up for theri newsletter to get their 20% off discount. When I enter the discount for my $91 worth of products ($96.65 with tax) the discount works and says "20% off welcome offer", however only $10.40 is being taken off? 20% of 91 is $18.20 ($19.33 if it's taken off the taxed value). The discount excludes anything from their "new" page and sale items, however nothign in the order is from their new page or on sale? So, what's the issue here? The items in my cart are: born this way foundation, chocolate soleil matte bronzer, and la creme lipstick in sugar daddy (not one of the colors on sale). Thank you!     **I've emailed their customer service, but never got a confirmation email back and have read really bad experiences with getting in touch with their customer service. So, not really expecting a response anytime soon.

It's working correctly now. Guessing something may not have been coded right when you tried hours ago. see post
Why I have been hiding ~ Why you haven't seen me on BT...
  First off I want to say that BT is one of the highlights of my day and I truly enjoy these forums. It is one of the first things I do when i turn on my computer in the morning and the last thing I do before going to bed. It would be safe to say that BT is an incredibly impt part of my life.   This is why I think it is impt that I share the following with all of my BT friends:   Last Wednesday night, Oct 5, 2016, I woke up in the trauma ward of my local hospital. Earlier that day I had been involved in serious motor vehicle accident where my car was totaled and I had sustained multiple serious injuries. Over the course of the following 48 hours in the hospital, I subsequently had two major surgeries and a myriad of tests.  It was quite something to experience,   I do not want to bore you with my troubles and i am not coming here begging for sympathy. My main reason for posting this info is to simply let my friends I have made on BT know what happened, especially if I am not as vocal in the coming months.   For those who are wondering, I am now in a medical rehabilitation center, having been discharged from the hospital four days ago. I am completely (temporarily) disabled on my entire left side from the chest down. (thank goodness I am a righty.) From here on I will focus on daily three hour sessions in both physical & occupational therapy focused on getting me back to be the normal and fully functioning 36 year old woman that I was up until a week ago. They say I will be here for many weeks/months.   I do still plan to “lurk” on the BT boards but right now between the recent trauma. feeling quite down, and honestly just losing the will to shop, (I know, shriek!)  I don’t think I would be as valuable a contributor.   Sending my love to all my BT friends… I’ll be thinking about ya!

The Beauty of Social Media
Whether you’re a qualified make-up artist looking for clients, or just an enthusiastic beauty blogger, social media is a great platform to get noticed. It’s a crowded space though. So how can you make sure you stand out?   Create a brand   It’s important to start cultivating your brand early on. This includes the basics, like a name and profile image; but it will also help to inform your content and how it’s edited. A good place to start is by thinking about your style, or what kind of styles you like to create. Do you love creating clever, natural make-up looks? Or are killer nails your thing?   Other things to consider might be colour schemes, tone, language, and (of course) your target audience.   Find your audience   Your target audience goes hand in hand with your brand – especially if you’re trying to sell your services. It’s important to know who you’re talking to! For example, teenagers aren’t likely to be interested in your new expensive foundation; and ladies might not care much about your excellent beard trimming techniques.   Different platforms attract different audiences; and those audiences expect different kinds of content.    Target your content   For make-up and beauty, Youtube and Instagram are ideal starting points. YouTube is great for tutorials for a full face of make-up, or an intricate up do – think about 5 minutes or more, with a voice over or you explaining what you’re doing. Instagram, on the other hand, has traditionally been used for photos.   However, in 2013 Instagram introduced 15 second videos; they upgraded this to 60 second videos in early 2016. This won’t be enough for a full face tutorial, but it’s plenty of time to demonstrate a cool technique or new product. The expectations for an Instagram video are different that for longer videos on Youtube – for instance, users are less likely to turn on the sound.    Make it personal   The top reason that social media has become such a valued marketing tool is the “social” aspect. Beauty gurus who make it aren’t necessarily better at what they do than everyone else; most of the time, they’re just more interesting, or more likeable.   Take Pixiwoo, for example. They’re a sister duo of makeup artists who have a huge online following. One of the sisters, Nikki did a make-up tutorial while heavily pregnant, and Sam recently did a video with her eleven year old daughter. They’re incredibly likeable, and subscribers get an insight into their business and personal lives through following them online.   How has this contributed to their business? Well, they’ve recently filmed a documentary for the BBC, no doubt because of their easy style in front of the camera. They also have their own range of brushes, which they often use in their videos (and led me to buying a few). But despite their success, they still publish regular tutorials and keep their Twitter and Instagram up to date, which keeps their fan base hooked.   Get stuck in   More important than anything that’s gone previously is this number one tip: get started! You can add new platforms later on, and hone your brand and audience as you go. The most important part is doing. It’s recommended that brand social media accounts post every day; more for instant platforms like Twitter and Instagram.   When you’re getting started, you might worry about having limited content to work with. I recently helped my friend get kicked off on social media, and we’ve tried a smattering of content to find out what works best. This has included some cross-channel promoting (ask your Instagram followers to like you on Facebook and vice versa); asking clients to contribute using the #selfiesaturday hashtag; and posting about what’s going on in the salon. Mixing up your posts like this keeps it fresh, and helps to build your online personality. It also allows you to find out what your followers like best, and can guide your ongoing strategy.

Any funny stories or places you've caught Pokemon?         I started with Squirtle, growing up playing all the Pokemon games I almost always chose the water Pokemon. And Wartortle is one of my top favorites. I just started playing and haven't left my house yet, but I've found a Meowth on my bed. I'm only level two, but when the time comes I will be representing Team Mystic, Articuno is my all time favorite legendary.

Music: Recently Listened To
I think it's fairly safe to say that all of us hear music at some point during the day, whether it be on the radio, YouTube, iPod/mp3 device, etc.  What's a song or two that you recently heard?  I figured this would be a neat way to perhaps share some of our favorite artists and songs.  Who knows, some of us may discover something to add to our music library or rediscover an old favorite.   Right now, I'm listening to "If I Die Young" by The Band Perry on YouTube.  I've only heard a few of their songs, and this is the only one I like.  Just because I live in their hometown doesn't mean I have to be a die hard fan lol.  I only like so much popish elements in country music.  I love country music by Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Trace Adkins, Montgomery Gentry, Shania Twain, Dierks Bentley, pretty much those that have been around for a while.  Especially Alan Jackson.  I know the words to a lot of his songs lol.   "If I die young, bury me in satin Lay me down on a bed of roses Sink me in the river at dawn Send me away with the words of a love song"

Living with Depression and/or Anxiety? Come on in, the door is open
I'm abandoning this thread. Maybe leaving BT for good. I'm sorry that I've deleted all my messages, but I no longer feel safe on this board and I don't want personal information about myself here.    This used to be a safe place for me. No longer. I wish all of you well and I hope you continue to support each other here. Xoxo

High School Visual Arts/ Makeup Course
Hello BTers!   I'm hoping you can help me out a little with a project I'm very excited about!    I teach at an outreach (last chance) high school which allows for a certain amount of curriculum flexibility to help pull my students (kicking, screaming and despite their best efforts) through their high school diploma requirements. After years of creatively filling out course modification forms, I've finally been given dispensation to offer a visual arts and health credits for a makeup/ cosmetology course!!!!   I'm struggling to figure out what materials to provide my students with that will allow them to best learn to work with colour and shading. Any suggestions? Keep in mind, this is public school.... my budget is about $75 CDN per student :/  I'm writing sponsorship request letters like my life depends on it!    Also, if you have any assignment/project ideas, I'd love to hear them!

Awesome ideas, @Anewxa!    @brie514 I applaud your creativity and commitment to your students!  You sound like an awesome teacher!   Your class sounds like a lot of... see post
Toot Your Own Horn!
I was talking to a job coordinator and she said we don't toot our own horn enough in interviews. It had me thinking... why not toot our own horn over anything positive that has happened lately. New job, left old job, new relationship, got out of a bad relationship, passed a test, found your perfect lipstick, etc. Mine is that I just paid off my credit card and I am debt free!!
