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.

Game time!  I've wondered how BT decides which 9 people (one is always myself) to show me are online at the moment.  I thought it would be fun (we all know the fun is in off topic) to show who our 9 are when we happen upon this post.   Of 19,091 users logged in, BT is showing me the following.  I think I know all of them, so that's neat. I did not look them up (should have), but I see sister13, Blushhoarder, Bea0t, Loving London, Sddenm, kso1225, rjmalt, zpsid91 (did look at hers since it is a general avatar), and eaidlade.   Who do you see?  The more people who play along, the neater it will be to see how long it takes to see yourself again.  Does anyone see me or any of the ladies in my list?  How many do you recognize?  Does BT actually pick people you may know or is it completely random?   You will get one entry for your first time playing along, because you appear in your list. Play as many times as you want, but you will not get additional personal entries for extra turns. Everyone else on your list will get an entry each time you play though. That way, everyone has a shot at winning other they play the game or not.     MK89 is still in the lead with 13!   Repeats so Far 19910827 x2 1mama3boys x2 221tea x4 4Ali4 x4 aaks1985 x4 anaa x3 annec322 x2 ashleynne x2 Ballerinagrl x5 Bea0t x5 beautyaddict99 x3 beautyispassion x2 bisoubisou x4 BlueeyeAli x3 brennab x3 Brie514 x2 butterblume x4 Cahlee x2 CaramelCupcake x2 CeliaV x3 Chelssss x2 chloe3036 x4 chocopudding x4 cig01 x2 coffeenow x5 cspriverratz x2 Curious Cannibal x2 dalidyli x2 darkiceis x2 ddstevens22 x3 desertdancer x6 DiVWA x4 drrragon x4 Elizabeth1972 x2 ellew2005 X2 Emmylove x5 enableme x2 ER!CAK1M x2 etscore1 x8 ExquisiteGypsy x5 Facesbyjes x5 gizeh x2 greenchili x5 greenporchlights x5 guzelkiz x3 Hackneyfl x4 hadtotryit x2 heartsmyface x8 heatherbee x7 Heatoyos1 x7 hellocoffee x2 Helvetica x6 HoneyBrownBunny x4 hookedonbeauty2 x2 hypnoticpose x3 Infinitise x6 ittybittyxme x2 jazzypurple x2 jeannie 11 x2 jemly x2 jen143xo x4 jenpred x2 jeyrosa x2 Jisub89 x6 joannimation x2 jobro1027 x4 jozkid x2 justj3n x4 k617 x5 Karma3p80 x8 KatelovesYSL x7 kbmatthews x3 Kenny x5 Knuevekm x5 kristengvan x2 Kromance x3 kso1225 x4 ladyinwhite x4 larissaladonna x2 laynebr x4 LCResz x2 leahlorraine87 x2 Loretta55 x2 Lovelykatya x3 lucyshnoosy x3 Lunality x2 lylysa x4 makeitup305 x2 Makeupinfinity x4 makeupobesessed x4 malday x6 meecheroo x7 meganlisa x2 megsny x2 Michelleshops x4 mimibel x3 misscg x2 MissHail x2 missjudycyang x 5 misspain x4 missrmessner x2 MissSpoiled x2 MK89 x13 mlinrin x3 MNSnowprincess x2 Mochapj x3 Monikay x3 mpas x2 mrsbaine x3 MrsLisha x2 mschrissie x2 NailsForLife x2 nerisai x2 newandaddicted x2 NikaBT x3 Nischcakes x2 noa1984 x3 notcreative x9 NotCrocker x2 nycmle x3 pek89 x7 pinktorridora x2 poshspice1 x2 preciousdreamsx x3 prettygirl (help me ID her) x2 prettyinpa x2 prettyplatypus x2 RandeeBt x2 rillablythe x6 Samtian x3 Sanabelle x2 sangova x4 sDdemn x5 ShannonAlexis x3 shirleylinn x3 SHolmes221 x2 shrewdle x3 simmerbait x2 sinfully x2 sirensong x2 sister13 x4 skintester x7 smigirvin x2 Sparklekai x2 spiderlashes x2 sprytely x6 srplpwdr x3 Srvanthi x9 Starrymom x9 Starrysparkle x2 Stephanielynn x6 Stylelynn x4 summerxskin x3 superjulienne x2 Swanbea x2 syritt x3 talinder x2 teatulip x2 tehprincessjenn x2 ThommiP x2 tracygirl64 x2 treecup x2 v0ltagekid x2 Vaashtii x2 vasilissa x2 vegchillilover x2 warriorwitch x3 xsunflowers x2 Zpsid91 x4

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?

Over the past couple of weeks, I have seen more bleeps than usual on BT. That means it is time for another game. Screenshot (excluding the poster's name) the post containing the bleep and place it here. Place your guess inside the post. People can make guesses on screenshots shared by others or post their own. Bonus points if the original poster happens upon it to tell us if our guesses are correct.

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?

    What kind of music do you prefer on a rainy day?    
I've already PMed a couple of BTers who live in NYC, but I figured I'd ask everyone for advice on what I simply should not miss during my upcoming trip.   My friend and I will be staying in Brooklyn for five days in August, and we're looking to experience more local haunts as opposed to places most tourists frequent (I lived in New York for half of my life, so I've done the Times Square / Natural History / Statue of Liberty thing many, many times). I want to walk the Brooklyn Bridge and my friend wants to spend time in Central Park, but other than that, we really want to find some hidden gems: places to eat, waste time, listen to good music, and shop.   So, NYC locals, what do you suggest?

Before I say anything- this post is going to be totally off topic and not about makeup at all!  I thought it would be nice to express our love for our pets, and maybe even pictures, too!  To start off, I used to be a dog person-- years ago.... But my whole perspective changed when a completely mellow nourished(not exaggerating!) female cat wandered in our backyard, hungry and hot. (This was in the summer of 2012) I still remember the poor kitty that was shaking as she ate a can of tuna and a bowl of milk because she was so hungry... Did I forget to mention that she was also a pregnant cat? Without a doubt I grew to love that cat, and I never thought in a million years that I would now be a cat person! But it doesn't stop there... We took that stray cat in, (after vet check up-shots- etc) and named her Olive. (People always ask me why we named her that- but she has these big beautiful eyes that look almost like olives!)  About a month later she had kittens-- 7 to be exact.. Unfortunately one of them was a runt and wasn't even fully developed- and after many attempts to feed it by hand, and through many tears, and a few days- the kitten died. The rest of the 6 kittens were so stinkin' adorable and one of the best experiences I've ever had to take care of as far as animals are concerned! They were so cute- it was so amazing to see them grow and change and learn new things.. We named them all too, even though we didn't attempt to keep all of them! (We as in my family- I still live at home with my parents and siblings)  Samuel, (male) Marty,(male), Charlie (male), Titus(male) Gracie(female), and Mabel(female.) After weeks of deciding which kittens to keep we final decided on Titus and Mabel. When the kittens were old enough to be separated from their mother, we found a great little shelter for the rest of them until they could be adopted to hopefully good homes.  After a couple of months Mabel began to ruin our house by clawing everything-- sadly we have to give her away as well, but later on we decided to get Olive(mom) and Titus(male kitten) declawed.. (We hadnt thought of declawing Mabel at that time so it wasn't an option!) Of course I know many people don't agree with declawing of animals- but if they're indoor cat like ours- and if you get it done when they are still kittens(like Titus was) then they should be fine... And yes- our cats turned out completely fine, after about a month of healing. Anyway, Olive and Titus it was; both beautiful tiger calico cats... That's not  the end of the story though. Last year we actually had 2 strays- one I will not bother telling the story of because he was suffering from terrible accidents outdoors that led him to being put down- and the other one I will quickly explain. Once again, mellow nourished, black & white tuxedo cat, a stray, wanders into our backyard, a sweet little thing. (GOSH his face is the cutest thing ever!) So lets just say that my family and I live with three cats now... Olive, Titus, and Mittens. (Mittens is such a common name for a cat with four white paws!) I love them all so so much, and they each are truly different and I love seeing each of their personalities! I have to admit that Titus is the SWEETEST cat in the entire world--- and I have to say that it is most likely because he was born in our home. He is so cute- he still meows like a kitten- and is totally overweight. (yes, my boo is on a diet- as the rest of them are, LOL!) SO- after I just blabbed my big mouth for half an hour- I want to hear YOUR story of your pets-whatever your pet may be. (And I do still like dogs- but I'm totally a crazy cat lady now!) Please feel free to share your story as well, whatever it might be- whatever means the most to you about your pet- whatever seems special to you--- I hope this post wasn't too boring, lol, and that you do enjoy it! XOXOXO PS. And as I write this post Titus is sleeping next to me. <3
Hubs and I took our littles to the zoo today.  I was passing by one of the monkey exhibits and couldn't help but crack up at a monkey playing with a sephora box! It looked so excited to have this box in its possession! All I could think was, " I get it monkey. I feel the same way!"

  Who is one of the most naturally talented and adventurous BTersaround?   Yeah you know the answer .    kb was one of my first friendlies when I joined BT so has been there since the very beginning in my eyes.  She's solid, genuine and feisty!  She also has the bestest skin!  Bonus!     Oh oh and I forgot to mention that she has brought so much happiness to the Canadian BTers who so bDly wanted a TSB of their own!   Thanks for being so amazeballZ!    I hope she doesn't mind that I brought guests!  They have blue eyes and say they're related.

Ladies, our dear BT community member mygreathair12 (Dan) is going through a difficult time right now.   He asked me to share with those who wanted to know that his biopsy yesterday discovered a bit more cancerous growth than anticipated, and also some white spots.  He is focussing on that right now, but asked me to reach out to those who had asked about him.   I really think Dan could use a big bunch of all our love and support right now as he goes through this difficult time.  I'm sure most of us have been touched in some way by cancer at one point or another, so you probably know how much any little bit of support can mean to someone.     Please pop in and leave some positive energy for Dan when you have a moment.   Dan, we're all thinking of you!!!  Stay strong!

Ladies, check your Marshalls! I wanted to share some great deals I found at my local Marshalls. I love going there for some awesome discounts, and recently I ran into Shiseido and Korres. I found some Shiseido sunscreen for $16.99 and $19.99. They also had Korres makeup removing wipes for $2.99, Pomegranate cream-gel for $6.99, Pomegranate toner for $6.99, Pomegranate Mattifying Treatment $6.99. Korres is my favorite skincare brand, so I was very excited!  What are some beauty steals you have scored at your local Marshalls?!
I've been thinking about starting this thread for a while... I was reminiscing about the first time I ever walked into a Sephora. I picked up a YSL lipstick and absolutely fell in love. What was your first Sephora experience?
If you'd pick any palette to make with a theme, what would it be? id love a sports themed one for football season. Go hawks also I'd like a rainbow of liquid eyeliners with the princess theme. 
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    8/16/2015     Spoiler (Highlight to read)   4Ali4 ajf1 AMHWKI x 4 AmyC Anb0906 Annec322 AnneMCC Annypoo Aparrish Arclightlux x 2 Arielaaaaaaaa x 2 Armybeauty Aviscardi AznAngelliz Bea0t x 2 Beautytester/chicdabbler Beeberz x 2 Beethousand BrennaBombshell Brittieee Butterblume Buxombabe80 x 3 CalamityJane85 Carolang Carrie1975 Carrierose Chaotika573 x 2 Chelsss x 2 chlotam Chupi Clarks18 x 2 CuriousCannibal Daisies121 DandyLionFluff Danimazz x 3 Desertdancer x 3 DesertRose0706 dioraddict DitzCore x 2 DiVWA x 2 Drrragon Eadelaide1 EllieyJelly x 2 Enableme emmy89 eriles EvangelineDamon x 3 Evno Firespinner Fluffymuha x 2 Garnett Ghkim Gogreyhound Greenchili x 3 Greenporchlights x 4 guzelkiz Gwenhwyfar hackneyfl happygen harlequinginger heartsmyface Hellvetica Heatherbee x 2 Hipquest Honeybrownbunny x 2 Hypnoticpoise Ilovebears Ireneh Itscarin x 2 Itsjaimiehere Ivyxox Jellybean917 x 3 jcmb 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 Kimchikween x 4 Knuevekm kristallovesdogs kristiewin kso1225 lachaton Ladymeag leopardprint Linda711 x 2 Lipstick4Soul Leopardprint Lylysa Lyravega Mafan Makeupobesessed Malday x 4 Maltipoo66 Manniface Mariahk83 Meagboho 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 Nicrohr Nightknight Nikki x 3 Nishcakes x 4 Njattana x 2 Notcreative Oklady2013 Pixyfaygo x 2 Plm95 Prettyinpa Princesskat17 x 2 Redwagon44 Rhiannon1419 Rikkie Roseps135 x 2 Roxystar4 Sangova x 3 Sbowden x 3 Sdbeautyjunkie1 Shadetertiary x 3 ShannonAlexis x 4 Shirleylin88 Shortstuff07 Sourpanda x 3 Sn22 x 3 Sp2001 Spacesuit Sparklekai x 3 Spoiledbrat spotspotcat Sprytely x 2 Sschulte1014 Starletta8 Stephanilynn StyleLynn x 2 Sugarkenzie SuzeAlex SydBristow talinder Teresaanne92 Thesocialquota thesupergirl Tigrelili to90 tracib1981 Trishalyn Unblownkisses Vanillammm x 3 Vegchililover78 Veronika23 Wendyomgwar x 4 Wingatprsct Wonbinlover x 2 Yazmin x 3 Yenx YouAreAlways Yullz Zpsid91  4Ali4ajf1AMHWKI x 4AmyCAnb0906 Annec322AnneMCCAnnypoo AparrishArclightlux x 2Arielaaaaaaaa x 2ArmybeautyAviscardi AznAngelliz Bea0t x 2Beautytester/chicdabblerBeeberz x 2BeethousandBrennaBombshellBrittieeeButterblumeBux ombabe80 x 3CalamityJane85Carolang Carrie1975CarrieroseChaotika573 x 2Chelsss x 2chlotamChupiClarks18 x 2CuriousCannibalDaisies121DandyLionFluff Danimazz x 3Desertdancer x 3DesertRose0706dioraddictDitzCore x 2DiVWA x 2DrrragonEadelaide1EllieyJelly x 2Enableme emmy89erilesEvangelineDamon x 3EvnoFirespinnerFluffymuha x 2GarnettGhkimGogreyhoundGreenchili x 3Greenporchlights x 4guzelkiz Gwenhwyfarhackneyflhappygenharlequingingerheartsmy faceHellveticaHeatherbee x 2HipquestHoneybrownbunny x 2HypnoticpoiseIlovebearsIrenehItscarin x 2ItsjaimiehereIvyxoxJellybean917 x 3jcmbjenfromnycJenjiJenpred JessicaClara x 2JessyiniowaJoannimation x 2Juicytulip x 4Jxw200 x 3K617KalexKariyavaKateye7 x 4KatelovesYSL x 2KayyLynn x 2KellsmuneokaKellyjmolenKiki1517Killahbabe x 2Kimchikween x 4Knuevekm kristallovesdogskristiewinkso1225lachatonLadymeagl eopardprintLinda711 x 2Lipstick4SoulLeopardprintLylysaLyravegaMafanMakeu pobesessed Malday x 4Maltipoo66MannifaceMariahk83MeagbohoMegEmMelde x 4MichelleshopsMinibux Missey1973 x 2Missie772Mixe x 4MK89 MlleCC x 2MochaPJMollybb x 4Mommyto4 x 2MonikayMoregun89MPolanskyMrsbaineMyChoi x 4NancienanoNarsnarsnarsNewandaddictedngillandNicro hr NightknightNikki x 3Nishcakes x 4Njattana x 2Notcreative Oklady2013Pixyfaygo x 2Plm95PrettyinpaPrincesskat17 x 2Redwagon44Rhiannon1419RikkieRoseps135 x 2Roxystar4Sangova x 3Sbowden x 3Sdbeautyjunkie1Shadetertiary x 3ShannonAlexis x 4Shirleylin88 Shortstuff07 Sourpanda x 3Sn22 x 3Sp2001SpacesuitSparklekai x 3SpoiledbratspotspotcatSprytely x 2Sschulte1014 Starletta8StephanilynnStyleLynn x 2SugarkenzieSuzeAlexSydBristow talinderTeresaanne92Thesocialquota thesupergirlTigrelilito90tracib1981TrishalynUnblow nkissesVanillammm x 3Vegchililover78Veronika23Wendyomgwar x 4WingatprsctWonbinlover x 2Yazmin x 3YenxYouAreAlwaysYullzZpsid91
Hi, all!   I recently returned an in-store purchase with receipt, and realized after I left that there was no recognition from the associate that I was a rouge member.  She was smiling, very nice, efficient, told me I had to run my credit card through, said thank you, goodbye and have a great day . . . everything that makes for a pleasant encounter. However, now I'm wondering if there's any recognition of your BI level at all when doing a return without new purchase (where they would go to your account and look up your points to offer you some point perks).     Does anyone know what the sales associates see on screen during a return?  Does anyone else think that this would be an opportunity for Sephora to have Rouges be recognized and make Rouges feel appreciated?   I knew they had some Fresh rose samples.  I missed part of what the customer in front of me was told when another associate was ringing her up. I didn't get offered a sample at the register.  Is the register sample only for purchase?  Did I need to ask for one?  All these questions came up after I leave the store.  (I was in a rush.) :/
Hi ladies! My mom and I have started getting more and more into volunteering and I am trying to compile a list of different purchases that can become tax deductible surrounding the event(s) where the volunteering is taking place.   Here are a list of items that I'm not sure whether they would be tax deductible (if tied to volunteering) or not: -gas purchases -food/drink purchases -any purchases while volunteering (buying merchandise, etc)   If you know any other tax deductible items, that would be great to share. Thank you!

So, I was browsing through the Sephora site trying to find some new products to try out.  I stumbled upon these cotton swabs which are perfect for removing mascara mishaps without ruining my eye makeup.  Then it got me thinking, what other products on the site have you found that you think not many people know of that is a great find? I'd like to try out some other neat finds
Hi everyone!  I've been off of BT for nearly two months now!    I really wish BT worked on my phone... I miss all the lovely BT gals. I will try to get on BT more often; just most of the time I fall asleep before my face hits the pillow.  I'm sure a lot of us know the struggle.  I'd love to keep in touch with my BT cohorts... does anyone use Instagram?  If you do, please send me a PM and I'll add you!! I miss this wonderful amazing supportive community!!   Hugs to you all!!

I just wanna ask what companies give out free samples when you contact them. I only know of Mario Badescu and L'occitane.   Who doesn't love free samples anyway?

I never throw these but I thought I need to throw one for Michelleshops because she always makes me LOL and I really mean laugh out loud literally.  Whenever my day is going anything less than stellar Michelle is always there with a funny gif to turn it around!  So thank you Michelleshops for the endless smiles and laughter!  You really are one of my favorite people here on BT!!          
It started to get a little old when they were every single day for weeks, but it's been for forever now I think. Can we do that again and just have some fun after yesterday's drama?   1 - The best part of waking up is...? 2 - Stretch out your left arm.  What are you touching? 3 - What song has been getting stuck in your head lately? 4 - It's 10pm.  What are you typically doing? 5 - What's the last thing you laughed at?
Hey everyone,   Just wanted to drop by and share my experience with GetGiftz, an iOS app to earn free gift cards. I only downloaded it because I saw they also offer Sephora cards   Basically what you need to do is complete some missions such as surveys, watch videos or test apps for which you earn points and then you can redeem them for the gift cards. I only share this because I already received my first gift card so it really works!    Here is the link and if you want 50 free points for the start use my promo code: caparker   https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/getgiftz-earn-free -gift-cards/id957306947?mt=8
I just noticed there's a Sephora Canada Instagram page! It doesn't have a "blue checkmark" but it looks legit.

Yay!! Football season is upon us! It makes me feel like I am almost whole again. I only watch NFL, so who is your team? Husbands and boyfriends team? I'm a Patriots girl myself I get a lot of crap for that living in Bronco territory.    This photo is how my Mother and Brother see football lol.
I just placed one order yesterday (3804830734) and you guys charged me TWICE. I'm very disappointed because I sent an email showing my bank statement and nobody answered me.  I'm leaving US so I need my money RIGHT NOW as well my products. 
Hello. This question is totally unrelated to makeup, but I'd love it if someone could help me with it. What is the proper way to word the sentence "I can't afford not to"? Like if someone says "Have courage" and then the other person replies with that. I realize that sentence is a double negative, but for the life of me I have no clue as to how to fix it.  Any people out there who know grammar, I really need your help!! Thanks in advance.
*ranting session.    So I'm getting tired of the SA who are shocked I have >1000 points and I don't want to redeem them. Once or twice I get....but its most consistently EVERYTIME! Maybe because  of this forum I have a different view but I'm pretty sure a lot of people have WAAAAAY more points. Why is so shocking to the SA? Are we rare point hoarders? ( i don't think I have as many points compared to the 5k plus club girls!!)   Especially with the 4x...3x points event coming up....I didn't think we were unicorns!   *End rant
