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.

Favorite girly things to watch?
Since I got all obsessed with makeup a few months ago, I have been on this big kick to watch "girly" stuff. So I wonder what you guys like to watch when you're feeling girly?   My favorites are: America's Next Top Model(even my husband enjoys watching this with me, but neither of us like the last two cycles with guys so we've since moved on to watching the Australian version)   New Girl- I am nowhere near caught up but I have had a serious girlcrush on Zooey Deschanel for years.   And my #1 favorite has been discovering The Mindy Project. I think I have a bigger girlcrush on Mindy Kaling than I do on Zooey.    And my stand-by is 13 Going On 30. Such a cute movie and I LOVE Mark Ruffalo.

Please Keep Yourself Healthy!
Hi Everyone,    I just wanted to check in and wish everyone a happy holidays but also to please, please, please take care of yourself and stay healthy! I wasnt going to post about this because BT is such a positive place but I felt it was important to put this out there.    My oldest sister was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer last year at just 38 years old. This is a cancer that is supposedly for "older" people meaning you do not get screened for it until after the age of 50 because its not likely for a person to be diagnosed with it before that age. If you ever feel a pain in your body or just feel like something is not right...please go to a doctor and get checked and also let them know your family's medical history. It can save your life!! My sister's cancer was so advanced that there was no way to save her. Her treatments were just to try and keep the cancer from spreading in order to give her some more time with us. Unfortunately, her time ran out last week at the VERY young age of 40 and leaves behind my niece and nephew who are only in high school.    Even if you do not have any symptoms but you have a family history of an illness, please get regular screenings. Some cancers, like colon cancer, do not show any symptoms until its too late. I will now have to get screened for colon cancer every year for the rest of my life because the probability is higher for me since a direct relative had it. I'm sure we all know, if you can catch it early, you'll give yourself the best chance of beating it.    I apologize for such a long post and the sad nature of this post as well. But I truly want everyone to stay as healthy as possible for your own sake and also the sake of your family. You guys are the best and I'll be back on BT soon.

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.

Your Top 5 (Friends style)
Alright everyone, you know the deal. Young 'uns listen up if your only reference to the TV show Friends is something your parents watched.    On second thought... if you're that young, this might not be the best thread for you. I'm officially giving this thread an R rating for mature concepts and mild to moderate sexuality.    On the TV show Friends, Ross and Rachel each were allowed to maintain a list of 5 people/celebrities with whom they could cheat on eachother with, and the other person couldn't get mad.    Without going further into the episode, who's on your list? At least right now... until it changes with everybody else's posts (which is exactly why you don't laminate your list like Ross did!)   1. Bradley Cooper 2. Christian Bale 3. Carlos Bocanegra (former captain of the men's US soccer team) Spoiler (Highlight to read)       4. Hugh Jackman 5. Mike Rowe

Drink of the day: What's in your cup??
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 !!!

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?

I love sephora inspiration
Lately I've been amping my looks up for work (server, mostly in the 21 and up area). And wow people like turn around and ladies rave. It's big confidence boosters. And I can thank sephora. I wish I had a picture but I wore the fake eyelashes on sale with the silver glitter, then sephoras glitter glue, a mix of sephora eyeshadow in diamonds are forever and mufes loose silver glitter, and a red lip. Hair in a top bun and a Xmas bow. Loving it. Thank you sephora. I return the favor by telling my customers.

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?

Fashion Hits and Misses...Embarrassing & Funny Stories
I went on a shopping trip with my Mom recently which turned out to be a hilarious experience for me, so I thought I’d post it and I thought it’d be interesting to hear from all of you about some of your great and not-so-great shopping / fashion experiences.  For instance, one of my big mistakes was when I bought this pair of shiny ruby red super high heels that remind me of Dorothy's red shoes in the Wizard of Oz (ha, ha!).  I thought they were pretty at the time...I think I wore them once and came to my senses. This is my most recent shopping experience:  My Mom and I usually go shopping together once a week because it’s a fun way for us to spend time together and for both of us to get out of our houses for a while and just have fun.  My Mom and I were shopping the new spring clothing lines and Mom called me over to look at “how ugly” some of this season’s dresses are and she wanted to show me one dress in particular that she thought was especially ugly.  Well, it turned out that I loved the dress that she thought was the ugliest, but it was in the Women’s Department so none of them would fit.  I told Mom that I was sure they must have the dress in my size and I was going to keep looking for it because it would make a perfect dress to wear Easter Sunday.  Mom said she felt sure that I’d be wasting my time and we should leave (ha, ha)…that was her way of trying to stop me from looking for the dress in my size.  I kept looking and I thought I’d found it in my size, but it was in the Petite Department which wouldn’t fit me either.  Mom said that we should go because I wouldn’t want to wear that dress on Easter Sunday and she was sure they didn’t have my size anyway (ha, ha).  So I kept looking and finally found it in the Misses Department in my size, which disappointed my Mom terribly.  I tried it on and she hated it even more and I loved it even more once I tried it on.  Mom finally said she would be very embarrassed to walk into church with me in that dress (ha, ha).  I ended up buying the dress and can’t wait to wear it.  My Mom has been making comments over the past couple of weeks like “You should try that dress on again cause you may not like it now” and “If you try it on with shoes you may not like how it looks” and "Maybe you should try that dress on again cause it may not fit like you thought" and "Maybe we can find a dress that you'll like better than the one you bought" and so on still trying to get me to return the dress (ha, ha).  I love the more unusual types of clothing that are in style nowadays and usually Mom just makes a face at what I’m wearing, but this dress has been tormenting her at the thought of me wearing it.  In case you’re wondering what my Mom hates so much and what I like, here’s a picture of the dress:   Anyway, I may look back on it one day and wonder what I was thinking, but for now I love the dress! I’m anxious to hear from all of you ladies about your fashion hits and misses, so post away…

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!

Epic Fails - Products or Techniques?
A while back I posted a thread about products or techniques that have changed your makeup, skincare or hair care.   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Products -and-or-Techniques-that-Changed-Your-Makeup-Skinca ...   On weekends I like to try new things, either products or techniques. Today in particular I had numerous epic fails. From one of my shadows shattering in the case (new, too, ugh) to a new BB cream providing zero coverage and actually turning my face red, to the second time this week cascading glitter all over my face from my eye shadow!! LOL I had to use makeup remover to take some stuff off it was so bad.   Just wondering if anyone else experiences the same. I do like to change things up, but it doesn't always mean success.

...to actually use the products that I buy.    It's so unreasonable!   Doesn't he realise if I use it it's NOT GOING TO BE AS PRETTY ANYMORE??   Is it wrong that I just want to look at the beautiful palettes and just never touch them?   Obviously what I need is a duplicate of every palette I buy.

It's now officially Christmas time in our household.   December 1st is the day I start my Christmas baking and the festive and sometimes annoying music is allowed to play.  I just finished my first batch of cookies - peacan shortbread.  This first batch never lasts the day but it is the first of many many cookies.  I bake a batch (or seven) a day until Christmas and always have an eager crowd of people wanting big tins of them to take home .    This is one of many traditions in our house.  The baking for me is more fun than actual Christmas, haha.  I'm interested in hearing about special little things you all do over your holidays.  Little things you look forward to every year and the things that make you smile
