just wondering has anyone ever met up with anyone they have met through these boards . Has anyone ever thought of doing local meetups. None of my friends are very into makeup it would be fun to meet some new makeup lovers
Has this ever been done? Lily's post about meeting friends got me thinking. I've just relocated to the States and I haven't really had a chance to meet anyone but for a lot of us it sounds like making friends can sometimes just be a pain too. I thought since we all already share at least one thing in common it might be an idea to occasionally organise some get togethers. They'd have to be divided up by region obviously and there'd be a ton of coordinating to do to try and pick a place/time/venue etc. But it might be fun. What do you guys think?
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, Read on a blog about getting great discounts on high end beauty items. I think she said the website she buys from is cosme-de. Does anyone have any experiences with this site? Is it legit? Do you guys know of any other LEGIT discount sites? I really am wary about buying online in general, but esp. from not well known international sites. TIA x
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: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Successf ul-Trades-or-TSB-Experiences/td-p/1012387 Bold = 5 or more vouchers 9/8/2015 Spoiler (Highlight to read) 4Ali4 ajf1 x 2 ALW31427 AMHWKI x 4 AmyC Anb0906 Annec322 AnneMCC Annypoo Arclightlux x 2 Arielaaaaaaaa x 2 Armybeauty Aviscardi AznAngelliz Bea0t x 3 Beautytester/chicdabbler Beeberz x 2 Beethousand BrennaBombshell Brittieee Butterblume Buxombabe80 x 3 CalamityJane85 Carolang Carrie1975 Carrierose Chaotika573 x 2 Chelsss chlotam Chupi Clarks18 x 2 CuriousCannibal Daisies121 DandyLionFluff Danimazz x 3 Desertdancer x 4 DesertRose0706 dioraddict DitzCore x 2 DiVWA x 2 Drrragon dyslexia Eadelaide1 EllieyJelly x 2 Enableme emmy89 eriles EvangelineDamon x 3 Firespinner Fluffymuha x 2 Garnett Ghkim Gogreyhound Greenchili x 3 Greenporchlights x 4 guzelkiz Gwenhwyfar hackneyfl happygen heartsmyface Hellvetica Heatherbee x 2 Honeybrownbunny x 3 Hypnoticpoise Ilovebears infinitise Ireneh Itscarin x 2 Itsjaimiehere Ivyxox Jellybean917 x 3 Jcmb Jen143xo jenfromnyc Jenji Jenpred JessicaClara x 2 Jessyiniowa Joannimation x 2 Juicytulip x 4 Jxw200 x 3 K617 Kalex Kariyava Kateye7 x 4 KatelovesYSL x 2 KayyLynn x 2 Kellsmuneoka Kellyjmolen Kiki1517 Killahbabe x 2 Knuevekm kristallovesdogs kristiewin kso1225 x 4 lachaton Ladymeag leopardprint Linda711 x 2 Lipstick4Soul Leopardprint Lylysa Lyravega Mafan Makeupobesessed Malday x 4 Maltipoo66 Manniface Mariahk83 Meagboho MeganLisa MegEm Melde x 4 Michelleshops Minibux Missey1973 x 2 Missie772 Mixe x 4 MK89 MlleCC x 2 MochaPJ Mollybb x 4 Mommyto4 x 2 Monikay Moregun89 MPolansky Mrsbaine MyChoi x 4 Nancienano Narsnarsnars Newandaddicted Ngilland x 2 Nicrohr Nightknight Nikki x 3 Nishcakes x 4 Njattana x 4 Notcreative Oklady2013 Paiute x 2 Pixyfaygo x 2 Plm95 Prettyinpa Princesskat17 x 2 Redwagon44 Rhiannon1419 Rikkie Roseps135 x 2 Roxystar4 Samtian Sangova x 3 Sbowden x 3 Sdbeautyjunkie1 Shadetertiary x 3 ShannonAlexis Shirleylin88 Shopaholic15 Shortstuff07 Sourpanda x 3 Sn22 x 3 Sp2001 Spacesuit Sparklekai x 3 Spoiledbrat spotspotcat Sprytely x 3 Sschulte1014 Starletta8 Starrysparkle Stephanilynn StyleLynn x 2 Sugarkenzie SuzeAlex SydBristow talinder Teresaanne92 Thesocialquota thesupergirl Tigrelili to90 tracib1981 TriestobeClassy Trishalyn Unblownkisses Vanillammm x 3 Vegchililover78 Veronika23 Wendyomgwar x 4 Wingatprsct Wonbinlover x 2 Yenx YouAreAlways Yullz Zpsid91 4Ali4ajf1 x 2ALW31427AMHWKI x 4AmyCAnb0906 Annec322AnneMCCAnnypoo Arclightlux x 2Arielaaaaaaaa x 2ArmybeautyAviscardi AznAngelliz Bea0t x 3Beautytester/chicdabblerBeeberz x 2BeethousandBrennaBombshellBrittieeeButterblumeBux ombabe80 x 3CalamityJane85Carolang Carrie1975CarrieroseChaotika573 x 2ChelssschlotamChupiClarks18 x 2CuriousCannibalDaisies121DandyLionFluff Danimazz x 3Desertdancer x 4DesertRose0706dioraddictDitzCore x 2DiVWA x 2DrrragondyslexiaEadelaide1EllieyJelly x 2Enableme emmy89erilesEvangelineDamon x 3FirespinnerFluffymuha x 2GarnettGhkimGogreyhoundGreenchili x 3Greenporchlights x 4guzelkiz GwenhwyfarhackneyflhappygenheartsmyfaceHellveticaH eatherbee x 2Honeybrownbunny x 3HypnoticpoiseIlovebearsinfinitiseIrenehItscarin x 2ItsjaimiehereIvyxoxJellybean917 x 3JcmbJen143xojenfromnycJenjiJenpred JessicaClara x 2JessyiniowaJoannimation x 2Juicytulip x 4Jxw200 x 3K617KalexKariyavaKateye7 x 4KatelovesYSL x 2KayyLynn x 2KellsmuneokaKellyjmolenKiki1517Killahbabe x 2Knuevekm kristallovesdogskristiewinkso1225 x 4lachatonLadymeagleopardprintLinda711 x 2Lipstick4SoulLeopardprintLylysaLyravegaMafanMakeu pobesessed Malday x 4Maltipoo66MannifaceMariahk83MeagbohoMeganLisaMegE mMelde x 4MichelleshopsMinibux Missey1973 x 2Missie772Mixe x 4MK89 MlleCC x 2MochaPJMollybb x 4Mommyto4 x 2MonikayMoregun89MPolanskyMrsbaineMyChoi x 4NancienanoNarsnarsnarsNewandaddictedNgilland x 2Nicrohr NightknightNikki x 3Nishcakes x 4Njattana x 4Notcreative Oklady2013Paiute x 2Pixyfaygo x 2Plm95PrettyinpaPrincesskat17 x 2Redwagon44Rhiannon1419RikkieRoseps135 x 2Roxystar4SamtianSangova x 3Sbowden x 3Sdbeautyjunkie1Shadetertiary x 3ShannonAlexis Shirleylin88 Shopaholic15Shortstuff07 Sourpanda x 3Sn22 x 3Sp2001SpacesuitSparklekai x 3SpoiledbratspotspotcatSprytely x 3Sschulte1014 Starletta8StarrysparkleStephanilynnStyleLynn x 2SugarkenzieSuzeAlexSydBristow talinderTeresaanne92Thesocialquota thesupergirlTigrelilito90tracib1981TriestobeClassy TrishalynUnblownkissesVanillammm x 3Vegchililover78Veronika23Wendyomgwar x 4WingatprsctWonbinlover x 2YenxYouAreAlwaysYullzZpsid91
I know there is a beauty related Halloween thread going around, but I want to hear/see everyone's costume ideas, as well as past costumes! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I try to dress up every year. Feel free to ask for suggestions/help here as well! Let's see... Halloween 2011: Circus Ringmaster Spoiler (Highlight to read) That was probably the last store bought costume I wore! Halloween 2012: Princess Daisy Spoiler (Highlight to read) This one was homemade, which is why the dress is more of my take on Daisy. The crown was homemade by the Luigi in the second pic. It was made of actual, very sharp metal hah. People kept calling me Peach... :/ Also, I hate posing for pictures which is why these are all awkward... Halloween 2013 & 2014: Gogo Yubari (Kill Bill Vol. 1) I ended up using this costume twice because I didn't have time to put together another costume last year. Spoiler (Highlight to read) Face and meteor hammer close-ups Face and meteor hammer close-ups And this year I'm going to be Han Solo. I just started working on it today!
WOOT WOOT PARTY TIME!! I thought I would throw my first ever heart party! And Annec322 was the first lady to come to mind! I think it is very sweet of her to put so much time and effort into all the things she does here on BT. Like the High-end/Deluxe Sample TSB! I'm not in it, but I like watching it. So come and celebrate Annec322!!!! Please share your favorite things about her or looks! This is one of my favorite looks she has done! LET THE HEARTS COMMENCE!
Wrote a longer post but it wouldn't let me send. Day 35 of My Mom's Hospitalization and they started to give her Morphine just a little while ago and are stopping some other meds. This could end any minute or she could linger like this for an unknown period of time. This wonderful and selfless woman deserves a quick passing. Please spread the word, if you don't mind. You have helped me through the passing of my incredible Father just shy of 2 years ago and the sudden passing of my 24/7 dear sweet companion, my Greyhound Brinny.I was blessed with the best parents ever. I hope BT Mods will allow this to stay on the main board. Thanks all, gotta go. No Hearts please. Just good stuff and we'll wishes. Will update. Going to hospital shortly. Thanks my friends. 😢
Hello! I'm planning on going to San Francisco in a few months. I wondered if there were any BTers in the area who would possible be interested in a quick hello. And who could answer a few touristy questions for me.
Although this is not makeup-related, I figured there would be some overlap with this interest and luxury handbags for some ladies out there. So, I've been hunting for a particular handbag for a few months and found it with a boutique in Australia. The only items I have ordered from abroad have been relatively inexpensive (like Sleek makeup). I was wondering if anyone has tips on duties, GST, or any other unexpected fees I should be anticipating (as well as anyone possible headaches). Considering it's a pricey item already, I would like to minimize being caught off-guard.
I like my job well enough but after two glorious weeks off, it's not very appealing right now. I only work part time so I won't complain but I would much rather stay home! I know, wouldn't we all?! Well, in all reality, I have nothing to complain about...so I will just grumble and carry on!
So, I am not a summer person, I hate the heat and sweating the minute I step outside. I am an indoor kind of gal in the Summer! I never would have survived before air conditioning! LOL. Anyway, there are so many things that I love about the Fall. Care to share what you love? For me, I would say the thing I like the most is just the crisp Autumn weather, where you can cozy up in a sweater or jacket and walk around without all the humidity. Plus, Halloween is my favorite holiday and my wedding anniversary is in October as well.
😢 My Mom is now in Heaven with my Dad. She EARNED that place in Heaven Every Day Of Her Life. Now it is eternal peace for her in an unbroken body. She missed my amazing Father terribly. More update/info on original "911" thread, think it may be in 'Off-Topic' section. Hope this can stay here a while, I need even more prayers now.....dealing with the not so nice and ALWAYS ready for a fight sibs. No Mom to defend and hug me. 😢 Thanks everyone.
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?
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.

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? What do you think is going on/will happen?
When in doubt, I turn to BT lol this is mainly for moms but anyone with advice can chime in please. As yall know, my youngest had pnuemonia about a month ago. Well. We were back in the er this weekend with the same thing. They sent us home with a nebulizer and some anti biotics. My question is this. Anyone else have a kid, or did you have as a kid, recurring pneumonia? And if so any ideas of how I can keep it at bay? I hate to see my little man so sick :/
I don't think that I have seen this anywhere before, so I figured I would start a thread! I am curious what everyone does for a living? I am the accountant for a trucking company. We haul gas and chemicals all over the country! So who knows? I may be part of the reason that your car can make it to Sephora! bwahahahaha What about you?
I am going to be going to NY for a week over the New Year holiday. I have only been to NY once before, years ago. Regarding makeup, where do you all suggest I visit. Kinda like a Make up bucket list. I was thinking: 1)Visit a Tom Ford counter 2)There use to be post about a Bite store that would make custom lipsticks so I though that may be fun 3) Visit a Guerlain or Hourglass counter 4) any other suggestions? Currently I live an hour from a Sephora and two hours from a small Nordstrom's so I don't get to visit many high end make up counters. Also - I am a cupcake/sweet fanatic - Any suggestions on that one. The only place I know of so far called Juniors.
I just wonder because my cousin in law was talking to some family overseas the other day and another relative referred to me as, "the funny one" I don't see myself that way really so I thought it might be fun to see what you think others would refer to you as, if they only could use one word.
I've been chatting with some fellow coffee addicts over in the Random Thoughts thread but I thought maybe I should make a separate thread. So let's discuss anything/everything about coffee! I just got the Peet's Sumatra blend in the k cups and I really like it! Need to make a note to try their Major Dickinsons Blend since it's so popular.
Some people had asked and I wondered myself, so did some digging around.
Here is what I've discovered - For the different smileys, insert the following codes with a colon ( : ) before and after and the icon will appear - these are what I found available on BT: cathappy catindifferent catmad catsad catsurprised

After seeing the wedding/engagement rings thread I started thinking it may be fun to exchange "how we met" stories. I'll start with mine. I was 17 and working in the Macy's Fashion Jewelry department. I went into the breakroom up on the third floor to get a soda from the vending machine. It got stuck and a man came in and banged the machine to get the drink out. He reached down to grab it, and as he hands it to me I asked, "Are you Turkish?" No thank you or anything. I'm still embarrassed about that. The thing is I was, and of course still am, obsessed with all things Turkish. I had been teaching myself the language, listening to the music, watching their movies/tv etc. So when I saw him I just got a feeling. So anyone else want to share?
Hi guys, you are so awesome! Thank you so much. ❤ I just did an update, thanks and mini-rant to the thread I mentioned above, but it didn't show up here on the main page. . Must have gone somewhere else, maybe some of you can find it and check it out. Thanks again sweet friends, new and old.
I am pumped. I don't know if we will get the same sort of offerings as our neighbours down south but I sure hope we get some good deals. There are so many Canadians willing to purchase awesome makeup and just not enough companies/websites etc.. for us Canadians to purchase from. Some websites like Too Faced have started to ship to us but not without the hefty duty price tag and off course our exchange rate sucks right now (and there's always that darn shipping threshold). Even when our exchange was par we have been paying quite a bit of a difference from Americans. We always seem to get the short end of the stick but I'm hoping that changes soon- especially with the launch of Urban Decay (perhaps breaking barriers and offering Canadians what we want?)...
I guess maybe this is going to be a rant. I am not sure yet. But I got to thinking about the fact that I am rouge. And that I don't have a freestanding sephora within 250 miles of me. Which means I have spent a good deal of money in SiJCP. Yet when it comes down to it, i you don't have a freestanding what is the point of being rouge? Seriously. SiJCP gets the mailers for free stuff. This i know. But the rouge events, ( The face mask thing is what set this thought train off in my head ) aren't EVER at SiJCP. The reasons that have been given to me have always been because of space. I can see that. But what is the point of touting the rouge program when I get zero benefits from it given the fact that I don't have a freestanding near me? The makeup applications? If you are rouge you have most of the things that you want and are probably pretty decent at applying it. and even if you are too lazy to do your own makeup for whatever event you decide you want someone to apply it, you better make sure that it is at least 2 weeks in advance other wise you are just out of luck. I learned that one when I wanted to have my makeup done and have some "me" time before a date night with the hubby. Anyways. I guess that did turn into a rant huh? :/
