Funny Reviews
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:

Me at Half My Age – Please play along!
I thought it would be fascinating to see how people looked at half their age. This lets everyone participate no matter what his or her age! We get to see neat hairstyles, clothing, interesting stages (Goth, etc.). Let’s have fun!   Here’s how to play: find a photo of yourself at about half your age. Then find a more recent one, perhaps one you’ve posted on BT showing a makeup look, or one you particularly like.   I’ll go first. Here’s a photo of me in the pre-digital-camera era, circa 1985. I couldn’t find any of this age that showed my face any closer. It’s a scan so is a bit grainy. Even back then (and when I was younger), I had smile wrinkles. LOL The recent photo is one from a WAYWT post.     Does anyone want to play?

Any baseball fans out there? Go Orioles!

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.

First World (Makeup) Problems
Right now, my packages aren't arriving fast enough. It's not all make up, and not all Sephora.  I'm leaving tomorrow, for over a week, so if they don't come by tomorrow afternoon, I can't play with my new stuff til next week! 2 things were supposed to arrive today, 2 tomorrow.     The package I cared the least about (clothes) came today.  The package I was supposed to get today's tracking info hasn't updated in days, and still says it's supposed to be delivered today.  It's USPS and the mail already came so I'm a little annoyed I don't know where it's at.    I'm basically acknowledging the ridiculousness of being frustrated about stupid packages arriving/not arriving...and thought, I can't be alone in having "trivial" issues/annoyances.

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!

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?

To all my No Buy sisters
So, I found this website, which I think is brilliant. Basically you make a commitment (mine is no buy at Sephora for a month) and you give them your credit card number and every week you check in to tell them if you succeeded or failed, and if you fail you have to pay money. You can designate the money go to either a friend, a charity or an anti-charity (a charity you hate, like one that really goes against your political leanings). I picked an anti-charity, because I need that extra motivation. Also, you can have a "referee", a 3rd party that verifies whether you stuck to your commitment or you can do it on the honor system.   So what do you guys think? Anybody else want to try it with me? We can be "supporters" for each other (you can tell people and they can make an account and like, leave encouraging messages and stuff). I have to tell you, I started using this website to make me exercise and it is totally working. So just wanted to throw it out there in case anybody was interested in using Stickk. I think it will really help me STICKK to my no buy. And maybe it will help you to. good luck, soldiers!

New Trans-Canadian Cosmetics Travelling Box/Train!!
Toot toot! Round three of the Trans-Canadian travelling cosmetics train is now *closed* *Update*   Here is the new train order! A couple of stations are friends of mine, I will be passing on their addresses to the people sending to them. Please PM the person sending to you *now* with your full name and address. If you don't have an address by Monday please contact me.  If I have missed somebody on the train please contact me asap     That said, Toot toot! All aboard, here we go!   Ont: 1)      Bcteagirl 2)      Ivyxox: Passed on to Ivy, August 21st 3)      Poornima: Arrived August 24th left August 27th 4)      LovingLondon: Arrived September 2nd, send on September 8th:   Tracking #: 0059382000696770   QC: 5) HappyGen: Arrived september 10th   Sask: 6) Gayle (friend): Arrived September 24th   BC: 7) Heartsmyface 8) Deesa (friend): Departed here on October 9th! Purolator #:11233766853   Ont:   9)Firespinner 10)  KBmatthews 11)  Yullz 12)  Bcteagirl   I rotated out some items so that there will be new items for the returning members. I added in some brand new Julep, Kiels, and a couple MAC.  I hope everybody has a grand time, I had lots of fun putting this together! I am meeting Ivy very shortly to pass on the box to the next station!     ************************************************** **** 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). 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!

Girl Scouts for beauty junkies?
I was talking to my mom this morning about my 6 yo wanting to join GS.  She asked if I was going to be a leader. I laughed and said that when all the girls returned home from a camping trip with full faces of makeup I probably wouldn't be asked back lol.  Anyways, it got me thinking about all the fun patches that could be associated with a beauty version of GS!  Um, winged eye liner patch, anyone?   It probably wouldn't ever get established, but it's a lot of fun to think about!

Where did you learn your makeup techniques? Please share!
I did a search (sorry in advance if I missed some threads).  Asking all BTer's to share how/where did you learn to apply your makeup: I.e. Blogs, Youtube videos, How-to's BT,  Trial and error, @ a Sephora store with the help of an associate?   I can't say I'm new to makeup, as I'm 42, however, I've watched some how-to's on Youtube and here on Sephora, but just can't seem to get it right! It's disheartening for me to have all this beautiful makeup to use, but then feel blah when I look in the mirror after applying. If anyone is willing to share your go-to bloggers, inspiration, YTer's I'd be most appreciative.  Tx so much ~KAM

2014 Sephora Secret Santa
This will be US only.   I had a lot of fun [in a stressful kind of way I suppose] last year and wanted to see if anyone would be interested in doing this again!     ❤❤ The Rundown   ❤  Same as last year, we will be using elfster do conduct the exchange. It's very easy, convenient, does a random draw, lets you make a wishlist, and allows for the asking of anonymous questions so you don't have to wonder 'will they hate this color or not...'.     You will have to add your address to elfster, but no one will see it except for the person who is your santa.    Let me know you are interested and I will message you the group URL.   ❤❤ Gifting Rules   ❤  The minimum is $35 and there is no max. Now note, it doesn't have to be a single item that is $35. It can be multiple items from off of the persons wishlist that total up to be $35.   ❤ Feel free to add random goodies to your box to make it more personal, not a requirement, but just throwing it out there that you can.     ❤❤ Deadlines   ❤ To Sign Up: November 14th. Names will be drawn on November 15th and elfster will send you an email with who you got. ❤ To Send Gift: December 12th. Gifts will need to be sent by or on this date.     If you have any questions feel free to post them here or shoot me a PM.   Thanks everyone! Looking foreword to it.

My favorite mod (Randee) has well over 2000 hearts!
It has been a while since we had a heart party.  If they were banned or shunned, I did not get the memo.   Anyway, my favorite moderator (I love them all, but I love her most) needs some love.  So, I hope you will join me in giving her some.     She knows why I love her so much, but I will tell the rest of you too.  She whacks the moles, uncovers missing points, answers questions no one else can and is friendly while doing it all.  There's another reason too, but I will take the 5th on that one!   Because she has a lot of beautiful hair   Because she brings on the party   But mostly because she puts up with all of us

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.    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.

So this happened
  So I was picking up my check which is not a lot.... the middle of the month is when I pay all my bills and well. Now I have to go and buy new frames cause this happened and even with tape, it makes my vision all wonky which I know leads to headaches and it's potentially just bad for your vision.. even though its bad enough already. I accidentally scraped a post with the left view mirror when I was at the bank. Hahaha....... okay not funny. So I'm left with 156 bucks and after I pay for these glasses which they told me it was 80 some and I know that's going to come up to 90.. I won't be left with enough money to make holiday purchases this month. It's going to fail because we all know how hard it is to want something and not being able to have instant gratification. Umph! Anyways, I just wanted to vent because my mother went off on me for wasting money at Sephora and whatnot.  I think I should be able to spend money where I want since it is money I gain, even though it's little. At least I'm not doing bad things!
