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.
Robin Williams was one of my favorite actors, and I'm sad to hear of his passing. What is your favorite Robin Williams movie? I'm going to have to think of what mine is, there are just so many good ones.
Every time I click on a TSB its closed already and 900 pple have already viewed the post/: I have a few beauties that need a new home and can't get in a TSB ... Lol! Noob.. ha im a missing a hidden place where these TSB are listened .. Posted? Hahaa...
A few months ago someone stole the Drugstore Travelling I started. I was heartbroken. However Nishcakes decided to send me a box so that I would not feel left out. It was such a kind and thoughtful gesture!!! I was literally in tears after getting it. She definitely deserves an heart party!!!
Sometimes I get really frustrated when I've posted a question about skincare or make-up only to get answers solely from reviews & not from people who've actually tried the product in my age range. I'm just venting. I really don't expect anyone to answer. Wish more people 50+ would participate on BT.
Toot toot! Round three of the Trans-Canadian travelling cosmetics train is now recruiting!! I understand not everybody will have a lot of hearts. You need to have been a member here for at least three months, or have somebody on one of my previous trains who an personally vouch for you. 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). Starting shortly, I would love to have a nice long train! 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! Put a post here stating you want to participate, and PM me your name/address if you want in!
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!
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.
Hi ladies, Totally off-topic (though I plan to work at sephora when I get older) but I got an interview for my favorite clothing store Brandy Melville. I actually have no experience working...at all. I'm only 15 and I'm getting a workers permit but how do y'all prepare for an interview? I'm super excited and really want this job. My resume was actually pretty good too. AGH I DONT WANT TO MESS THIS UP. Any tips? TIA. xoxo, Kelly
Yay! I wanted to help her celebrate--I remember how excited I was watching my hearts go up. Congratulations on this milestone--there are more to come! Thanks for being friendly, fun, and full of BT spirit!
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:
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.

Are there any phrases and/or words that you think are overused and are starting to bug the heck out of you? The one that is getting on my nerves the most is "curated". For example, "this makeup line was curated by our beauty editor." I just feel it's so over the top and pompous. Also, the word "sweet" instead of "cool". I actually heard a woman who had to be at least 75 years old using it. I laughed so hard I almost fell over.
I'm curious to see everyone's 4-legged companions! I've seen them mentioned in several posts and am always happy to see other's pets! I myself have 3 kitties and ride 2 horses (whom I like to call my own ) All 3 of the kitties were rescues! The orange one is Palmer - was found at a motel dumpster and brought into the vet clinic I worked at, the black and white tuxedo is Squeakers - she was dropped off at my barn when she was 6 weeks old! and the white one is Seuss - I helped raise him since newborn baby kitten hood, and fostered 3 of his siblings So, show us your furry (or feathery) friends!
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?
hey ladies, have you heard about this super awesome program by Dior. i think more companies should have this kind of reward system for their loyal customers (hello Chanel and YSL, I'm looking at you). What is the Dior Diva program? Every dollar spent on a Dior Beauty product equals 1 Diva Point. Once you reach the desired point level you send your original receipts and the redemption form in to the address provided on the form. Note: sales tax isn’t included towards points and all points sent in must be within a 12 month period. Currently there are five levels to the program. (When it first started there were only three levels!): ■Adorable Diva (100 points) – you’ll receive deluxe travel sizes of Dior best sellers in a mini Dior shopping bag. ■Fashionista Diva (250 points) – you’ll receive the Little Dictionary of Fashion written by Christian Dior plus three deluxe minis for your handbag. ■Charming Diva (500 points) – you’ll receive a Dior charm bracelet packaged in a Dior couture box plus a deluxe Miss Dior Cherie miniature. ■Divine Divas (1000 points) – you’ll receive a couture inspired black makeup pouch finished with a little shimmer and shine and full sizes of Serum de Rouge in Rosewood Serum, Diorshow Browstyler, Diorshow Extase Mascara and a travel size One Essential. ■Lady Diva (2500 points) – you’ll receive a Dior Brush Set complete with Foundation, Blush, Eyeshadow, Brow and Lip brushes nestled in a black D-charm pouch and packaged in a Dior couture box. Also includes a full sized One Essential and Diorshow Lash Maximizer. ■Diamond Diva (5000 points) – you’ll receive a Dior Couture Accessory complete with deluxe minatures for touch-ups: Diorshow Extase Mascara, 5-Couleur Eyeshadow in Stylish Move and Rouge Dior Lipstick in Rouge Blossom. I can only dream of reaching Diamond Diva. lol. Cza
Not sure what board to post this at, so sorry if I'm in the wrong place! I just moved to Canada and where I'm originally from, tipping isn't common. I don't want to seem like a cheapskate and tip the right amount haha, so how much do you guys usually tip? What is (in)appropriate? And what about low cost services like a brow wax, do you still go with a percentage or just add a couple dollars? Do you still tip for a service you're not all that happy with? Sorry for all the questions, I'm curious!
I wanted to start a discussion about VS return policy. I know they allow a max of 7 items to be returned within 90 days WITH receipt and they swipe your ID to keep track of it. I've worked at a giant retailer so I understand trying to keep track of returns without receipts because there are a lot of scammers out there. But why limit the amount of returns with a receipt? You are only going to get back what you paid... I sometimes buy things without trying them on because the line is long, or I change my mind later on, or I buy them as gifts but end up getting them a different gift. Even if you exchange an item, it counts as a return. I hate the limitation because I could potentially be stuck with this item if I've returned 7 items within the last 90 days already. I feel like if you have a receipt, they should allow you to return the item. I really like VS as a store, so I'm really torn with their policy. Sorry for this long rant. Has anyone else experienced this or is frustrated by their policy?
Funny story....not so funny actually kinda tragic for me lol but anyway I left my MAC flat out fabulous lippie in a pocket accidently and put it through the washer and dryer... T_T It COMPLETELY melted and is no longer in existence and with it , it took down a fav pair of my jeans and my favorite harry potter shirt ( im a bit of a nerd lol ) So have any of you beauties had a similar experience with any of your makeup ruining things but it was totally your fault ? T_T I barely even got to know it
Yes I've had my septum pierced before and yes, usually I have a strict - " go to a piercer - do not try this yourself" policy. But I have a scar where it healed and the skin is thinner there still and (not to make a run-on sentence buuuut) I miss it Has anyone re-pierced their self before? I'm going to try this tomorrow. It shouldn't be too bad hopefully lol
Inspired by my new love for the YSL Babydoll Faux Cils mascara 100pt perk. What products (makeup, skincare, hair care, whatever) have you received samples of or perks of that have become staples in your collection?
1. Who is your all time favorite beauty guru to watch? 2. Which guru reviews products most accurately? 3. Which guru seems the most genuine? 4. Who is an underrated guru on YouTube? 5. Who do you like to watch for fashion inspiration? 1. I think my all time favorite beauty guru is difficult to pin point. I find that the younger ones seem to be more about all these random videos about their life and "guy advice" that I'm not really interested in hearing. I would say Michelle Phan, but I feel that her looks now are much more costume type looks than everyday wear. I think I'll have to go with frmheadtotoe! 2. I really do like when Ingrid (missglamorazzi) does her monthly favorite videos because she and I both have to tackle really oily skin. 3. Ah, being genuine. I know a lot of people rant on about how YouTubers seem so fake. That is why I think JLovesMac1 is the most genuine. Even though I may not like her tutorials as much as others, I appreciate her trying to make her videos fun! That's why I love to watch them! 4. Underrated would have to be Melmphs. Her reviews are thorough and she's so cute! 5. More about the fashion side than beauty, I really enjoy watching Jenn from clothesencounters. She's young, but my sense of fashion is very similar to her own. Similarly, I like the sisters from thefashioncitizen because they thrift! Nothing is more discouraging from videos when you see all of the youtubers clothes are high-end.
I don't remember the last time I've gone swimming. I miss it dearly and decided that I was going to make a trip to one of the rec centers in town, to go swimming tomorrow *Wednesday* - since it's my day off. Now here's my question. Should I go during the Public Swim time or the Lane Swim time? I'll be going alone and I guess the main purpose of going, is to get some exercise while enjoying swimming, What do you think?
I haven't see a no-buy thread in a while, so I thought I'd start one up, mainly b/c I could use the support! I'm on a no-buy from now til...however long I can last! I'm taking a trip to Italy at the end of the year AND in the meantime will be taking the GRE + applying to grad school, so I'm trying to save up as much as possible for these upcoming expenses. And on top of that I've shopped like crazy this summer so I think it's time to just take my credit cards and stick them in the freezer or something. Naturally, I'm imagining this though: Anyone else trying very hard to restrain themselves?
