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.
I haven't see a no-buy thread in a while, so I thought I'd start one up, mainly b/c I could use the support! I'm on a no-buy from now til...however long I can last! I'm taking a trip to Italy at the end of the year AND in the meantime will be taking the GRE + applying to grad school, so I'm trying to save up as much as possible for these upcoming expenses. And on top of that I've shopped like crazy this summer so I think it's time to just take my credit cards and stick them in the freezer or something. Naturally, I'm imagining this though: Anyone else trying very hard to restrain themselves?
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?
Inspired by my new love for the YSL Babydoll Faux Cils mascara 100pt perk. What products (makeup, skincare, hair care, whatever) have you received samples of or perks of that have become staples in your collection?
I feel we need our own thread for all of the awesome stuff we get for our furry friends. I love to spoil my two cats almost as much as I love spoiling myself with Sephora goodies And honestly, I can always use more ideas on how to incorporate awesome looking cat toys, climbers, or whatnot into my home. I'll share my current faves in the comments!
For all the beauty junkies out there: I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little -- if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny. ---- Coco Chanel
Are there any phrases and/or words that you think are overused and are starting to bug the heck out of you? The one that is getting on my nerves the most is "curated". For example, "this makeup line was curated by our beauty editor." I just feel it's so over the top and pompous. Also, the word "sweet" instead of "cool". I actually heard a woman who had to be at least 75 years old using it. I laughed so hard I almost fell over.
I've always loved makeup. I took Cosmetology back in 2002-2004 because I thought there were more makeup lessons involved, but there wasn't any. I am tired of my 9-5 desk job and I'm thinking of making a big change. I'm 28 and to the point where I need the extra push. They just opened up the first and only makeup school in NJ; Robert Fiance Makeup Academy and I am really thinking about attending! They offer a "Journeyman" program, which includes freelance makeup and theatrical. What do you guys think???? Has anyone ever gone to one?
So I've been shopping at Sephora for a while and it's been my retail therapy. I love trying products and just roaming the aisle. My guy would go to another store while I shop. Now, he asked me about a cleanser and I was happy to show him a few that would be great. I think I've created a monster because now he wants more. Would this be good or bad news for you? On one hand I would enjoy having company sometimes and on the other the money we spent on his skin care would be less for my products. I know that sounds selfish but yeah, I think dollars and cents. He wants to go back next weekend to browse more products. Oh boy. What would you do?

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! I would love to keep this train moving quickly, I am putting more stuff together/reorganizing it as we speak. If you want to officially be on the train, you do need to send a message with complete address to me! I am borrowing most of the rules from a previous train. 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) 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 *** For new mascara, dip lip gloss, you must tape them up so they cannot be opened/swatched en route. Leave other lipstics/etc untapped so people can see the colours. *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! Put a post here stating you want to participate, and PM me your name/address if you want in! Edit: spacing lol
Has anyone downloaded the Summer 2014 playlist from Sephora? I had it but it got deleted so I'm trying to find the correct track listing that Sephora had listed on its website. I just need the correct track order they had listed. Thanks.
hey ladies, have you heard about this super awesome program by Dior. i think more companies should have this kind of reward system for their loyal customers (hello Chanel and YSL, I'm looking at you). What is the Dior Diva program? Every dollar spent on a Dior Beauty product equals 1 Diva Point. Once you reach the desired point level you send your original receipts and the redemption form in to the address provided on the form. Note: sales tax isn’t included towards points and all points sent in must be within a 12 month period. Currently there are five levels to the program. (When it first started there were only three levels!): ■Adorable Diva (100 points) – you’ll receive deluxe travel sizes of Dior best sellers in a mini Dior shopping bag. ■Fashionista Diva (250 points) – you’ll receive the Little Dictionary of Fashion written by Christian Dior plus three deluxe minis for your handbag. ■Charming Diva (500 points) – you’ll receive a Dior charm bracelet packaged in a Dior couture box plus a deluxe Miss Dior Cherie miniature. ■Divine Divas (1000 points) – you’ll receive a couture inspired black makeup pouch finished with a little shimmer and shine and full sizes of Serum de Rouge in Rosewood Serum, Diorshow Browstyler, Diorshow Extase Mascara and a travel size One Essential. ■Lady Diva (2500 points) – you’ll receive a Dior Brush Set complete with Foundation, Blush, Eyeshadow, Brow and Lip brushes nestled in a black D-charm pouch and packaged in a Dior couture box. Also includes a full sized One Essential and Diorshow Lash Maximizer. ■Diamond Diva (5000 points) – you’ll receive a Dior Couture Accessory complete with deluxe minatures for touch-ups: Diorshow Extase Mascara, 5-Couleur Eyeshadow in Stylish Move and Rouge Dior Lipstick in Rouge Blossom. I can only dream of reaching Diamond Diva. lol. Cza
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.
"In the near future, we are going to be expanding our international shipping to start including other countries and in order to do this, we will need to start charging duty on all orders including those shipping to Canada. We truly apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding."
I'm sooooo excited! I just bought Bobbi Brown's Beauty Manual in Barnes and Noble the other day and loved it. I just happened to take a peek at her actual website and saw that she's got a team of makeup artists that hold workshops. I was thinking...how am I getting to CA or NY for these?!?!? Then I found out it's right at the Bobbi Brown Studio in my State! (NJ) I didn't know this place existed. Just so happens that the Basic Beauty workshop is being help next Friday from 4-8pm. It's $200 ($100 redeemable in product) If any of you are from NJ and have the $, maybe you should come with!! I'm overly excited about this ;-) Happy Monday <3
Hey girls, So ever since I visited my guy in Ohio I have had a new found love for ULTA. The store is like Sephora of drugstore brands and some higher end brands you can't necessarily get at Sephora. I asked the girl at the cashier desk about why they don't ship to Canada or have stores in Canada. She was baffled to hear about this and asked the store manager. She too couldn't believe that we don't have the ability to shop in store or online from up here. I've tried contacting them and they keep saying they don't ship to Canada but never give me a response I deem satisfying to me. I wish they would give us the ability to shop without having to drive to Buffalo to go there. Cities like Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver ect would benefit from a franchise opening up.
I know it's been a while since I was on here......but I just want to tell you the exciting news! I got into Northwest school of cosmetology! I'm so excited! I'm starting July 22nd. It's like I have one foot into my career goal. So excited!
I'm on vacation this week and am staying close to home.(I made raisin butter tarts for the first time ever yestarday!) Decided to go strawberry picking today. I didn't think 6 quarts (a flat) of strawberries was a lot... Until I started trying to use them up lol. Made a batch of Strawberry Cupcakes and just finished making Strawberry Jam (that produced 5 - 500 ml jars!) and I still have 2 quarts of berries left. ***drowns in strawberries*** lol
it just seems kind of serious and quiet around here lately. I am feeling a bit blah, with the heat and humidity, and reading/hearing way too much bad stuff in the news. So, let's all give a heart party for everyone on BT! A wonderful group of caring, fun, informative individuals who share many interests! I look forward to "seeing" all of you daily! Thanks for being here!
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!
Hi gals, I'm a guy wanting to dress up & do makeup. I'm thinking of making a day of it by getting some ear piercing, getting 1- 2 ladies outfits, and having makeup done. Not sure as to which order of having things done,but most likely wearing heels the whole time. Any suggestions as to order? Thanks in advance.
I am traveling with my two kids to Holland in about a month. I live in the DC area. I need to bring hostess type gifts for the two families I am staying with (both aunts and uncles in their 60s). I also need to bring gifts for children - a mix of boys and girls who are age 7-12 or so. I'd like to figure out something local, not too heavy, if not local that characteristically "American," to bring. I am at a total loss. Suggestions quite welcome.
UPDATE!!! Please check if the person you are posting about already has status. Once they have that I no longer add them up. This will help keep the thread clearer, and to be honest make this job easier for me.

So my friend from Hong Kong and I often trade goodies. She'll send me stuff I like, and vice versa. I usually try to include something from my mexican heritage - candy wise.

All she knows is that I'm sending her the Stila in the know palette and the Kat von D blush, xD she sure will be surprised when she sees all the stuff I've included.
I'm very excited to go to Sephora tomorrow! It seems like forever since I have been inside. The last time I went (end of May) I received probably the best customer service from one of the cast members who really went beyond great service to unite me with the last Sun Safety Kit. She had really made my day/week and although I had already filled out a survey with an awesome review for her, I wanted to write her a little note, thanking her. Is that too weird? Or would it be a nice gesture? I'm a frequent letter-writer/thank you note-giver, so I was curious to know what other people's thoughts were about this. Thanks
