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!

Need Your Opinion
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!

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.

Does anyone else have this problem?
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!

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!

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

Need adivce/ideas about storage...
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?

Rest in Peace to the lovely Lauren Bacall
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.

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?

Your Views on... ULTA
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 got a job at SiJCP!
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.

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)   BC: 7) Heartsmyface 8) Deesa (friend)   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).

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!

What Musical Instrument Do You Play?
So we all like makeup, but there are some of us out there who also do other things as well, including playing instruments. I am curious and therefore, I thought it would be interesting to see if anyone on here plays a instrument out there. If so, come and share with us and tell us why you choose that instrument.   1.  Mandolin - Not to be confused with an orange (seriously, I get it a lot of that from people). It is also not a mini guitar (yes, that too). For those who don't know, a mandolin is a cross between a fiddle/violin and guitar. I am actually just beginning to learn it but the reason why I learned it is because I wanted to try something similar to a guitar but different. There are too many people who play guitar and therefore, I wanted to play something cool that wasn't a very well known instrument; something unique. I ended up with the mandolin. Although I am just beginning to learn it, I am learning it rather quickly (all thanks to my violin background). The only thing I am seeming to have trouble on is the strumming, which I will get used to once I practice some more. So far, it is enjoyable and I can already play Hot Cross Buns on it (day 1). I am also able to tell which note is off and which one is dead on. As for the type of mandolin I own, it is a Gibson A-9.   2.  Violin - I've actually been playing it for seven years and therefore, I am pretty advanced on it. This instrument had helped me to learn the mandolin. To be honest, I really did not want to learn violin and was sorta forced into it but I grew to love it as I played it more. Perhaps it was because it challenged my brain a lot more than the other instruments would have, due to the fact you are doing multiple things at once (bowing and fingering).   What about you? What instruments do you know how to play?

Just in time for the weekend.....it's time to Heart Party for Zpsid91!!
Well, I was happy to see that Zpsid has 1111 Hearts!! What are the chances of noticing she was at that exact number? Feeling lucky? Maybe it's a good number to play, who knows? (but if you win, you have to share it with Z and me, okay?)   I wish I could come up with a good song from my 'Mental Play List" which now includes "This is the song that doesn't end" but I'm coming up blank at the moment - hopefully something will come to mind. Maybe this will be the invite to a heart party that doesn't end.   Congrats on 1111 hearts, you earned every one of them and it's nice getting to know you. I sent J-Fall & JusTim invites (Fallon & Timberlake) but not sure if I gave them enough notice - I'm sure they'll be here in spirit (and maybe "Dean" and "Sam" will make an appearance too! )   ps - No, Mr Clooney did not get an invite - since I broke it off he's been in a terrible tailspin, didn't think it was fair to jerk his chain.   Edit - meant to write "It's time to Party Hearty for Zpsid91" in my thread title, sounds a little silly the way it is. Guess I'm off my game.......the whole breaking of Clooney's heart thing must be affecting me more then I realized. My bad. (   )  Or is this his most elaborate hoax/practical joke EVER?

Opinions on the best way to cover a tattoo without using make up
I have a moderately large tattoo on my inner right forearm that I need to cover while working for a particular organization. I've never needed to cover it before and since it's over four inches long and on my forearm, it's too large for make up. Plus, I'll be washing my hands a lot, donning gloves, etc. I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions on something I can buy like an elastic type sleeve or something similar to a sweatband but not too thick. I can use bandage-type things if I'm in a bind but I'd like something that might cover in a few colors and can be washed and reused.   Any ideas?
