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?

Rainy Days
So I feel like doing my makeup, but it's raining so I don't think I'll be going out. That's not the point of this status though.   What kind of music do you prefer on a rainy day?   Mine goes from classical music, to the beatles, and of course - David Bowie!        Edited to include the picture I took the other day.    After the storm calms:   Both taken by me.

Use Up Those Samples! (Daily Sample Usage Log)
  I have a tremendous amount of samples and have been trying to use them as much as possible --some days I'm more successful than other days.  Since I'm on a low-buy, I’m planning on posting the samples that I use on a daily basis and try to really incorporate as many as I can into my daily routine. This will encourage me to make a serious dent in my huge stash of samples and challenge me to keep using as many as I can each day.   Who’s with me?   Feb 28th: Algenist Eye renewal balm x2 Algenist Retinol Firming and Lifting serum x2 Philospohy renewed hope moisturizer Tom Ford True Coral Lipstick Fresh lip polish x2 Fresh advanced lip therapy x3 Algenist overnight restorative cream Tata Harper Resurfacing mask—I love this and plan on purchasing the full size Lancome Hypnose Star mascara

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!

The Recipe Thread
So with the Transformation thread being resurfaced and all the talk about eating healthy and making home-cooked meals,  I thought that we could share some recipes with each other! I know there are a few floating around in lylysa's What's On Your Plate thread but I thought we could drop them in one place   I used to love looking up new recipes for meals to make with my (ex) SO and haven't been doing that lately, but I'd really like to get back into cooking. I know quite a few of you are vegetarian/vegan and I'd love to see your recipes as well!   I'll start off with a really simple one. This is a super easy salad dressing recipe that I found not too long ago that tastes great and seems pretty healthy.       Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing   3 tablespoons whole grain mustard 2 tablespoons honey 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons vinegar (white wine, apple cider, red wine, or coconut) salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste       *Transformation thread  Rouge Only  ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB-ROUGE/Transfor mation-Support-Thread-Rouge-Only/td-p/1136805 )   *What's On Your Plate thread ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/What-s-o n-your-plate/m-p/430729/highlight/true#M10719 )

IMATS NY 2015
Hey guys!  I saw that tickets to IMATS NY 2015 are now on sale.  I want to go but am nervous about it.  I don't have any friends that are into makeup the way I am and I don't know how enjoyable it will be on my own.  Is anyone on BT planning on attending?  Have you attended in the past?  Would you recommend I go if I'm not a professional makeup artist but love the craft?  Any thoughts and feedback are appreciated!    For anyone intested the dates are April 10th - 12th (Friday the 10th is pro-card holders only while the 11th and 12th are GA).     What do you all think??

What's your favorite genre?     I just finished Blood Vivicani by Beckett  And I am starting a reread of The song of Ice and Fire (the game of thrones series)   My favorite genre by far is horror and Fantasy.

Do you have a daily "uniform"?
So, I just saw this article on LifeHack of why highly successful people wear the same thing everyday. Not the same clothes everyday, but the same style of outfit. Like Steve Jobs and his turtle necks.    I am the most indecisive person ever, and if anyone needs a uniform it's probably me. I have only recently started to simplify my closet, but the only thing my clothes have in common so far is the color scheme (a lot of blues or grey and black) and skinny jeans.   So I thought it would be a fun topic to see what your go-to style is.  What are some of your favorite items to wear day to day?

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.            2/25/15 - RIP Demi

Just had some devastating news
I'm really sorry to post this on here but I need to unload this to someone otherwise I'll cause a scene at work.   I just got a text that one of my oldest friend's grandmother just passed away.  I have known their family my whole life.  I didn't get to meet my own grandparents because they lived overseas and passed away early on (my dad's parents passed when he was young and my mom's passed while I was young)  This lady who just passed was like a grandmother to me.  I spent so much time visiting with her over the years.  She always treated me like I really was her granddaughter.  I'm not personally close to many people.  I don't like people to get too close to me but I had a real soft spot in my heart for her.  The last few years her health had been very poor and she was in a nursing home (she was over 90).  When I would visit her it would take everything I have to keep it together in front of her.  She was a shell of her former self.  She couldn't speak and hardly eat.  But she always recognized me and she always kissed me when I came.    I know death is a part of life and we all have to go some time but it's still hard to deal with when someone this close passes.   I'm sorry for this emotional post.  I just can't help myself right now.

5 Favorite Things
In a couple of weeks, the ladies at my church are having a get together to get to know each other better. I've only been there for a month, so this will be my first gathering with them.  They are asking that everyone in attendance brings 5 of their favorite things. They said total we should spend $25-30 to put together the five things. And somehow, I don't know if it'll be a game or what. But we are going to exchange things with other ladies.  So I am trying to put together a list of my 5 things.  So far I have: -Red nail polish (I'm hoping Ulta will have CG Ruby Pumps in stock for this) -Cadbury chocolate (I'm going to try to find the Fruit & Nut bar it is my absolute favorite) -Lipstick (Obviously most of my favorite lipsticks would eat up my whole budget, but I do have an NYX High Voltage lipstick that I've really been loving) I'm trying to decide on the final two things. If I can find a way to represent them and stay in my budget, I would like to do something to show my love for baseball and something for the Marvel universe.    What would your five things be?

Heart Party For Mygreathair12
Ladies, our dear BT community member mygreathair12 (Dan) is going through a difficult time right now.   He asked me to share with those who wanted to know that his biopsy yesterday discovered a bit more cancerous growth than anticipated, and also some white spots.  He is focussing on that right now, but asked me to reach out to those who had asked about him.   I really think Dan could use a big bunch of all our love and support right now as he goes through this difficult time.  I'm sure most of us have been touched in some way by cancer at one point or another, so you probably know how much any little bit of support can mean to someone.     Please pop in and leave some positive energy for Dan when you have a moment.   Dan, we're all thinking of you!!!  Stay strong!

Have to share good experience! ASOS superfast shipping from the UK (to USA)!?
Just have to share  - ordered some clothes and make up from ASOS and it actually ships from the UK (it's a UK based brand), to my house in Detroit practically overnight.     The order was placed in the wee hours of the this morning, 2/25, and it's set for UPS delivery tomorrow.  I'm impressed!  They carry some fun brands and jewelry and beauty - though some of their clothes are pretty poor quality - I love that they have plus sizes too.  Anyway I'm excited about this shopping experience and wanted to share with someone.

(Probably) incorrect pricing at ULTA - what can I do?
Hi Ladies,    I would like to know what to expect when I experienced an incorrect pricing at ULTA. I know that Sephora will handle it promptly but I don't have much experience with ULTA, so I know what might happen next.    The product that I purchased was Olay ProX Even Skin Tone Spot Fading Treatment which is listed as 29.99 on Olay website ( http://www.olay.com/en-us/skin-care-products/prox- spot-fading-treatment). However, on ULTA website, it is sold for 44.99. The product is marked down to 38.24 as one of the sale itms but still it is marked higher than the MSPR. ( http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp? productId=xlsImpprod5140199)   It's understandable that ULTA does not offer price match but it looks like this is a simple error in their pricing. Can anyone advise what I can do to handle this issue? Will they offer me some refund?

MSRP that's the key. Manufacturer Suggested Retail price, meaning the price ($29.99) is a recommend selling price not the price required to sell at. see post

Post your peeves here!
I got cut ahead of in the grocery line (again!) today, and while I was fuming, got to thinking of what bad behaviors of people really get me going.  Feel free to add your favorite pet peeves.   No particular order 1- People who cut ahead of you in line, especially when you've been waiting awhile, or you are running late and don't need to be later. 2- People who go through the express 10 items or less lane with a half cart full of stuff. Taking forever to check out due to trying to use expired coupons or coupons for stuff they didn't purchase gets my goat too. 3-People who act like they know it all (extra credit to those horses-patooties who really don't know but act like they do!) 4-Pests who take up the only 2 parking spaces by parking in both with their car, right near the store on a rainy day so I have to walk a huge distance and get soaked.   Going to end now to give everyone else a chance!

Give a Little Love...
I know that she had been mentioned numerous times but can we please give a little bit of love to Jaclyn Hill.     I think she is a stellar makeup artist and she simply seems so sweet. I know that some individuals don't like her (please don't hate here) but I think it seems like she has a great personality that is caring and kind. She also seems to have a great sense of humor. Obviously, I keep saying "seems" because I don't personally know her. Anyway, I just wanted to send some loving vibes out to her, because I was thinking about some of the posts that she has had about people being mean, and it just seems to hurt. I can't imagine putting yourself out there, just trying to help others, and for people to hate on you. Let's send some good vibes to Jaclyn.
