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!
This is a serious question. My family loves holidays.... especially Thanksgiving and Christmas. I've always loved this time of year. I'm recently engaged and right now I feel like everyone is mad at me. How do couples split up the family time during the holidays without making everyone feel shortchanged? For Thanksgiving-- my mom is mad that we're leaving early and my future mother in law is upset that we're coming late. Should we just split up and go to our own family celebrations without each other? What are we supposed to do at Christmas? What happens if we have kids? My family is in Philly. His is in DC. We both reside in Maryland. Do we just spend holidays riding up and down the interstate? I just feel sad. I don't like making problems in the middle of something that is supposed to be fun but I really don't know what to do.
I keep my living room and bed room clocks 5 minutes ahead of actual time. Although I know these are ahead still it helps me manage the early morning rush to get kids ready for school and hubby for job and kids are always ready to leave 5 minutes earlier than their pickup time and we have a few extra minutes to deal with any unexpected situation. I wonder how many of you do same and keep some of the clocks ahead.

Joe's Kid has reached the big 3k.  From one Daddy's Girl to another, I have to say she is amazing.  She makes everyone feel welcome.  Thanks for being so wonderful with everyone. May your amazingly bright eyes always be brighter than the rest of us (who use a lot of GlamGlow)!

Very loose idea here, but I'm assuming there are quite a few people that like chocolate. What chocolate are you liking right now? Have you tried a new vogue designer chocolate?   Tell tell tell!
It took me over an hour and a half to place my order on the Urban Decay website.  I know that Black Friday is a busy time but wow!  I've never had this much of a problem.  I almost gave up and forgot about placing my order but the Ammo palette for $10 was too good of an offer to pass up.  Eh!  Time for a nap!

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?

One of my all time favorite BTers crossed the big 5k mark.  She is always helpful and friendly.  This is the reigning Queen of Pink.  With all of her new Jill Stuart items, she will reign a lot longer, too.  Here's to Leah, and may she receive many, many more hearts as everyone else realizes how awesome she is.

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. 
With the holidays coming up (Christmas is a month away as of today!), I thought we could all share what we celebrate and how we do it, and if there's anything on our wish list (whether as a gift or taking advantage of the sales).    I was raised Christian so we celebrate Christmas, and we try to put most of the emphasis on spending time with loved ones and giving to those in need. We sponsor a family or two that are in need, and give them gifts (that include both needs and wants), and even sometimes invite them over for Christmas dinner.   Since my daughter is almost 4, I'm trying to show her that there's more to the season than just getting toys. My goal is to get her to pick out toys she hasn't played with and donate them herself, as well as pick one of her brand new Christmas toys to give, once she opens them all. I also decided to get her things that encourage more creativity: an art desk with drawers for supplies, some dress up clothes including superhero, elsa, and doctor, books, and a snowman/snow fort kit.    For those who give gifts, I've told them to either put some money away for my daughter's tuition fund, donate it, or go on a "date", like catch up over a drink, dinner, movie, museum, etc.    My good friend is Jewish and she has invited my daughter and I to celebrate Chanukah with her and her family this year. I don't know much about it, but I'm really excited to learn and honoured to be included!   So... what about you?

With so many of us tea drinkers I thought this could be a place for us to talk about teas. Make some suggestions. Ask for recommendations. Share recipes. Show off teaware. Lets discuss all things tea.

One of my all time favorite BTers has finally achieved her long overdue Hall of Fame Status.  She is friendly, helpful and a wonderful asset to our community.  I know she's touched my life, and I am guessing she has touched quite a few of you as well.  We all envy her amazing eyes.  Please join me in showing her the love she deserves.  Congrats, Meaghan!  BT loves you!!!          
Happy Thanksgiving Weekend everyone! xoxo   In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to ask you all, what are you thankful for?   I'm thankful for the wonderful people I've met in my life who have been so supportive of me, and love me for who I am.    OH, and makeup too.

I just renewed my drivers license yesterday and made it a point to do it in person so I could retake my picture. The last picture I took had been unexpected and I had no chance to prepare. Fingers crossed this one will come out better.   How does yours look? Any good stories out there?

Now that the weather is getting colder (in most places) more of us are switching to hot tea, coco, etc. So lets share - who is drinking what (from teas, to coffees to even wines, etc), post a pic if you would like ; other wise just specify the name of your beverage  and continue to enjoy it     My husband woke me up with a hot tea  for breakfast. It was Green Mint Tea - now I feel refreshed, awake but still not ready for this day !!!

Come and let everyone know if you've done a trade with someone or they've been an awesome TSB contributor! Let's give kudos to our BT BFFs!    So a post could be one persons feedback on another, how a trade went, did they ship quickly, etc. and others could reply if they dealt with the same person and how their trade went.

I swear I saw a thread with a title like this today, but now I can't find it. If this is a duplicate sorry...   Keeping with the other threads of 5 things...I thought this would be fun. What are your 5 favorite music artists/bands?   I don't listen to much new music, I'm usually stuck in the 40's to 60's, but I've found a few new artists/bands I like.   1. Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings 2. Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators 3. Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears 4. The Black Keys 5. Fleet Foxes
Even though paying for shipping stinks and the wait time is outlandish, there are some really good deals if you like any of these three brands.

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.    It's been 2 months and 7 days since little neko was born. Here is his updated picture, he posed for it. He posed a lot. 
I just wanted to post a quick note to say for anyone in Ferguson, Mo., or the surrounding areas, you are in my thoughts and heart tonight and in the following days. No matter what decision is made by the grand jury, not everyone will be pleased with the outcome. I hope everyone stays safe tonight and in the days and weeks ahead.

Feeling under the weather, lucky to still be able to go to my mom and get pampered. As I was laying on her bed I could hear her doing her nightime skin routine. The products she bought on the 20 percent  sale. The fab skincare set and claudiale beauty elixir. It made me smile and felt happy for her. She is really liking this set. I asked her if she noticed a change in skin and she said it looks like she has.    I just wanted to share a little moment that one not might think too much about but sometimes you realize its little moments that often have a big impact in your life. Memories although small will last a lifetime,

So I've noticed that every time I look at the reviews of a product there are at least a few unhelpful (sometimes they're a little helpful) but hilarious reviews. What are your favorites that you have seen so far?   Here's one I saw while browsing through UD Naked Skin reviews:

I just discovered that what goes on at Lime Crime's office is horrible. I read multiple blog posts and this is what I found   In the past, Xenia, the owner, bought pure mica from TKB and sold it as her own 'handmade' eye shadow at a higher price. Most of her stuff in the beginning was repackaged products from other companies.    She calls her company vegan, but includes beeswax and carmine in her lipsticks...... Her ingredient list is  always  changing.    If she sees a bad review of her products, she either threatens to sue the blogger reviewing her products because to her, it's considered "defamation" OR, she sends an email to her fans called futurettes to go on to the blogger's site and talk about how amazing her products are. She can't accept the fact that her lipsticks just don't work for some people. That's the thing that I hate about Xenia and her company. She threatens to sue! She is very unethical, unprofessional, and has no morals.   Another outrageous thing she did was she made a blogger delete her bad review of LC lipsticks and post up scripted apology! TWICE! It was either lie about your review or get sued! This is why you shouldn't support Lime Crime, because the company is so horrible and manipulative!   If you googled "lime crime scandal" a ton of blogs will show you the truth behind her company.    Sorry I've been ranting about brands so much. heh

As I walk the puppies, I'm freezing here in Florida.  It's not supposed to be this cold here.  Just wondering what the weather is like in your area.  I see lots of areas seem to be getting inundated with severe amounts of snow, and I'm so thankful we don't have to worry about that cold fluffy stuff anymore.   Hope everyone stays warm!

With Thanksgiving just over a week away, what are you thankful for?   I am thankful for my mom, good health, a job, a place to live, food, a reliable and safe car and that I only live five miles away from my local Sephora with wonderful sales associates. 
Has anyone considered buying $350 worth of gift cards(or any set budget) for 2014 and telling themselves not to go over? after bleeding my wallet dry this holiday, I think I should do it. But am I strong enough to stop after i use up the gc's? That is the question......
