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 recently heard about dumpster diving and people literally jump into dumpsters and steal makeup. Is it even considered "stealing" if it's in trash? Just thinking about it is disgusting and it's making me feel dirty haha.

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!    
This happened to me once before, I got stuck on a number that had a certain digit repeated 3 times and it freaks me out!!! I'm now at 5_ _ _ (fill in 3 of the number six there). Yes, I know this is weird, I feel like a bit of a freak, but it's been staring me down and it gives me the willies, heebie jeebies and every other icky feeling you can imagine. On the rare occasion that I actually write a check or come across anything with those 3 digits, I'm gone! The check gets ripped up. If I'm playing solitare, end of game - you get where I'm going with that.    So I just need one heart - hate to go begging. Hope this gets seen soon, posting it in off topic and I know that's where many things go to die, sadly.   Thanks for the assist, whatever little angel comes along and helps me out with this problem. It's okay, you can laugh about it - it's just one of those things. Thanks in advance.
I am sitting here looking at all my makeup. Then I realize, I will never be able to use it all....not in a lifetime. Many products aren't even touched. But they keep coming out with new things! Especially with the holiday releases coming up. And I can't stop!!! What a dilemma!

So kinda screwed myself...I applied for a job, got the interview, they asked me if I knew excel (of course I said yes, it's a great position) and, I don't. How much do you think I could grasp in a week???
This is the only board I go on and I have found everyone here to be supportive. I hope to get your advice.   I have been looking for steady employment for four years. I have multiple degrees and couldn't even land a minimum wage job and this long, negative journey has resulted in anxiety and severe depression. I finally found a full time job with benefits in my field. I started last week and I hate the job. I'm not being paid a competitive wage for all I'm expected to do and the hours are horrible. I'm scared to leave the job because I'm afraid I won't be able to find another one. I would appreciate any opinions that you have. Thanks!
* Please do not move this to Customer Support. This is a question for all Canadian customers not just me personally.   How is the new duty charge for Canadian orders being calculated? Is it a flat percentage for everything or is NAFTA / the location of manufacture being taken into account What are the exact figures / math of this process    
I love the colors, but I don't know why none of them look good on me. Or i'm doing something wrong. I've got big green eyes and pale skin and I've tried a mixture of all of them and they don't do anything for me but make me look dead tired lol  Anyone else have this problem???

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'm debating what kind of storage  I want to go for. I currently use a writing desk (only has one drawer that is stuffed with random junk right now). On top, I have a couple acrylic drawers, and then some other bins filled with random things. It's... chaos right now. There's not enough room for it to be organized, and it's driving me nuts.   I am waffling between IKEA Alex drawers (the 5) to go underneath, and store things that way, or a ton more acrylics for on top. I'd prefer acrylics on top of the desk for a) access and b) appearance, but I just am thinking it's not going to fit everything I want it to fit.   Does anyone have any personal experiences that might help my decision?

Was wondering if anyone's subscribed to the Walmart Beauty Box that (I think) only recently came out? I just got mine today, and I'm pretty impressed, considering it was only $5!       Obviously, nothing high end in here, but I still love my drugstore brands and thought this was totally worth it.

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! 
Isn't it awesome when you've been doing your makeup forever and you still manage to stab yourself in the eye with your mascara or eyeliner? Haha Sorry it just happened to me as I was getting ready for school today. I just felt like sharing
If you talk like a pirate at KK today, they will give you a free doughnut.  If you dress like a pirate (have to have 3 items) they will give you a dozen  of their glazed doughnuts for FREE.

Does it bother anyone else that people are allowed to post reviews on something they haven't purchased? I was looking at the UD Mother Lode to post a pic and I start scrolling: That's too expensive, or I wish I could afford it, or only rich people can buy this, thanks for making me depressed. There should be a box to check if you have purchased the item or a box if you just want to comment on it. 37 reviews and only ONE person that actually has it in hand

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.
Lauren and Bogey.jpg
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.    
They have an Hourglass brush that I would like to buy, and I have the code for $20 off your first purchase... however every single review (and there are many) for HSN say that they've had nothing but problems and truly awful customer service.   Has anyone bought from HSN before? Please share your experiences. Let me know if I'm safe spending $54 on their site.
I dislike the customer service and coupon restrictions. Just tried a coupon that gives NEARLY everything off 20% (even UD) and it didn't work. I wanted the Marc Jacob Daisy So Fresh purse spray. (Not at Sephora)  Another horror was me driving to one 30 minutes away and kept checking up on the limited edition OPI polishes that were out of stock. They offered to get the items and transfer them to the store. IT TOOK A F****ING MONTH. Of course I got it for free because I was b****ing and whining and probably attempted to cause a scene. I complained about the driving and their incompetence.  God, what a nightmare. I love you Sephora. 
I'm so excited! This past week I've been shadowing out on the black tile with my new co workers. It's so much fun since I love helping people find the right beauty products.   Although, I'm still a bit nervous when giving mini makeovers. I feel a bit scared that I'm doing something wrong or they don't like what I'm doing. But the best way to learn is just to do it, right?   Is there any advice you could give me so that I can be the best beauty consultant ever? I'm super friendly and I always jump in to help. I actively offer samples and give a reasonable amount (usually a 3 day supply). I always offer to sanitize and provide clean applicators and makeup removers. But I just feel like I could do more, especially when there's a freestanding Sephora on the upper level.
I dont want to pour my dramatic life story here.. So ill cut to the point. Past 2years have been tough since my mothers pass. Family/chosen sides/Pretty emotional arguments.   I have College, work, insta, and my lovely BT to keep me company. Sephora and BT make me happy after a hard day/: does anyone else get happy with makeup after a long rough day?(:   my sleeping pattern has been terrible. Any tips and advice on how to slowly get back to a better sleeping schedule. (Staying up late just thinking/:  and spending money on makeup that i dont need xD ) (Products?) any tips for eating healthy on the go(: ? I know being healthy and sleep are important for beauty and college grades .. Haha.   tips on feeling better period? Haha. Stories on how you ladies made it through a challenge? I know we cant get to personal or shouldnt. I hope i didnt>.<   Just like to say thank you to you lovely ladies(:

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!

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!      
Ulta that was for Platinum members?  I know the basic is a CK mascara, but what was the bonus for Plat members?
'What a Girl's Eyebrows Mean' Anyone just love Jenna? LOL. I laughed about them all. I have bushy eyebrows and when she said what she did about them I was like "So true.. I let them grow so I could have those Cara D eyebrows!" xD  
I really, really, really want BeautyTalk on my iphone! Someone please tell me that this will happen soon...

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!  
When does Sephora have the best deals??
