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

Buying on here
I noticed there were threads about people buying and trading boxes of samples on here. I'm trying to find posts but am having a hard time so If anyone knows what I should type in, that'd be lovely. Or if anyone has offers on here. I don't want to trade or sell. I like samples, and I give them to my sisters and mother too, so I'd like to buy. I have never done anything like that so I'll probably only respond to people I've seen on here (I read more than I write on here). I also don't know how to pay, so I'd need direction. It just seems really fun to do so if anyone wants to make extra bucks hit me up or point me to the right post. Pleases and thankyous : )

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…

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?

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?

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!

2014 Sephora Secret Santa
This will be US only.   I had a lot of fun [in a stressful kind of way I suppose] last year and wanted to see if anyone would be interested in doing this again!     ❤❤ The Rundown   ❤  Same as last year, we will be using elfster do conduct the exchange. It's very easy, convenient, does a random draw, lets you make a wishlist, and allows for the asking of anonymous questions so you don't have to wonder 'will they hate this color or not...'.     You will have to add your address to elfster, but no one will see it except for the person who is your santa.    Let me know you are interested and I will message you the group URL.   ❤❤ Gifting Rules   ❤  The minimum is $35 and there is no max. Now note, it doesn't have to be a single item that is $35. It can be multiple items from off of the persons wishlist that total up to be $35.   ❤ Feel free to add random goodies to your box to make it more personal, not a requirement, but just throwing it out there that you can.     ❤❤ Deadlines   ❤ To Sign Up: November 4th. Names will be drawn on November 5th and elfster will send you an email with who you got. ❤ To Send Gift: December 12th. Gifts will need to be sent by or on this date.     If you have any questions feel free to post them here or shoot me a PM.   Thanks everyone! Looking foreword to it.

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.

Share your holiday traditions.
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

S/O beauty stories to share?!
So finals are this week and kicking my butt. Basically, I'm ridiculously stressed and I'm studying non-stop (except for when I need a break, which is when I come on here, haha). I put a face mask on last night as a "reward" for studying so much! Sounds crazy! And then I turned to my boyfriend, and asked if I could put one on him too! To my surprise he said he didn't mind and it would be fun to "have our faces painted together." It was awesome (of course he wouldn't take a picture with me though!!)   Anyone have any stories to tell where you got your S/O to try something beauty related even if they never have before?!
