Happy Birthday, Marilyn Monroe!!
I've been reading this biography of Marilyn on and off for awhile now. Such a sad story but I've learned so much about her!! She really is so amazingly gorgeous. (And she really knew how to pull off red lipstick.) Remembering her today on her birthday.

Question about ulta platinum

Gender Norms
Spoiler (Highlight to read) Why are there gender norms? I mean, why can't it just be accepted by society that men and women are equal? Women can wear pants, boys can wear dresses, women can have short hair, men can wear makeup. And you can do these things while not being transgender because gender doesn't define you. Thanks.

40% off for VIB Rouge???
Muahaha just kidding But now that I have your attention, I'm here to let you all know that today is my last day at Sephora..    It's been a fun 5 years, (2 of them I've spent here with you guys.) but the time has come to try new things and keep growing.  I've really enjoyed my time here and I'll miss you guys! You've kept the job... interesting. haha Just kidding, you know I love you.  If another guy replaces me you have to promise me you'll give him a hard time until he proves himself worthy.   ←~(o `▽´ )oΨ   Thank you for the heart parties and thank you for the warm welcome when I first started, I'll never forget it!! I was super nervous but you guys welcomed me with open arms and I felt comfortable right away.     Maybe we'll meet again someday!!!!      ヾ(*^▽゚) byebye!!

YouTube Makeup Tutorial Recommendations?
Who are your favorite YouTube beauty gurus?   I just started following a few people on YouTube (yes, I'm a late tech adopter!) and am looking for good recommendations for beauty tutorials.   Right now I follow Pixiwoo, A Model Recommends and a few others. I mainly want to get better at eye makeup and nails. You don't even want to know how my cuticles look! Also I love watching Sephora product reviews.

Totally random...but what are the best white t-shirts out there
A Sephora question?  Not really.  But given my daily reality of how can I seriously get ready in under 5 minutes I keep facing the reality of my awful white t-shirt selection.  Too sheer, too fitted (works with some bottoms but not others), too blah... So since there is this off topic thread and a number of very creative and resourceful BT-ers...I figured I would ask...what white t-shirts (that are still available!) do you love?

What are your travel essentials?
So in about 3 weeks I'll be going out to Vancouver! I've never been & it will be the longest I'v travelled in a while. I'd like to know what some of your travel essentials are. I'll be doing out-doors-ee activities while I'm up in Whistler, & then we'll go back down to the city for the remainder of the trip. Not only would product recommendations would help, but if you've been to Vancouver it would help if you have any recommendations of must-see, dos, & eats!  I've also heard that if you're flying & have eyeshadow it's best to put paper towel over them so they don't shatter... Is this a thing?

WHO IS/ARE YOUR FAVORITE CARTOON CHARACTER(S) OR CARTOON AND WHY?
I was just laying here surfing the web and I started thinking about cartoon characters (Random I know). I have alot I really like; Rugrats, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Rocco's Modern Life. But my favorite characters are from Ahh Real Monsters! Oblina looks  like a black and white candycane with  red lipstick, Ickus is just adorable with those big ears, I LOVE The Gromble because he was a male character wearing awesome red heels, and Krumm.....well being able to hold your eyes seems like a pretty cool thing to be able to do. These shows were all popular when my kids were young so that probably has alot to do with my fondness of them......great memories.  Who is/are your favorite characters(s) or what's your favorite cartoon and why?

BT Etiquette
Okay, I'll point out the obvious, I'm extremely new to Beauty Talk. I'm just wondering if there is a hidden hierarchy/etiquette/agenda that I need to be aware of before I fully submerge myself in the beautiful world of BT. I've attempted to participate, but I've held myself back in fear of being that creepy guy at parties who just rolls on up out of nowhere. I want to be apart of this great community going on, but I just don't know how to exactly.   I would love some tips on how to integrate myself fashionably, and not seem extremely awkward by just inserting myself in conversations.   I appreciate any input I can get 😘 thanks everyone!

Drama at the workplace
So, I'm a single lady but recently I experienced heaven when my eyesight came across the most handsome guy I've seen that looks like he could be Lee Pace brother. Sigh. So cute. Anyway. We're not in the same department but I recently found out his name through a friend. She knows about it, oh and she has come to be one of my best work friends. So the drama comes in where there's a new girl that is just starting with us, I'm still new but as you all know, I've already had a month or so of experience and she's fresh out of training. Anyway I made the mistake of telling her about him and now she's obsessed. I'm sure I'm just being paranoid but since I don't have the confidence most women have, I feel like somehow she could woo him. And not to have a high ego but I am pretty, I am nice, etc but I still worry. Anyways, didn't necessarily write this for advice, just to vent it out. Not many people are happy with her behavior and she's new.. so that kind of sucks for her.

~Lets imagine..
Hello ladies!!! I thought it would be fun to write a post off topic of makeup, (well, kinda) and get into some down to earth fun! ;D So, let's take a moment to imagine we are stranded on an exotic island, and you are stuck there(brace yourself) for the rest of your life. But using your common sense, before you boarded that cruise ship that sunk, you luckily brought FIVE things that you could not live without. So then, my question is, what are five things you could not live without(or, would have to live with for the rest of your life on that exotic island!!!) ? Okay, here is what I would want with me on an exotic island... (Also, you can exclude daily necessities if you want; we all can't live without clothes, food, etc!) #1. My makeup bag(that probably counts as a hundred items since its packed full!) #2. Eddie Bauer girl on the go knit leggings.(let me say, I've grown to live in these! They're so comfy to me!) #3. My cell phone.. (Only for 2 reasons.. KLOVE radio, and emailing.. I email more than I text, and cannot live without music!) #4. My diary( need to keep track of exotic things I see eh?) #5. My Bible(my devo and way to keep encouraged!) Well then ladies, let's hear your five can't live withouts!!! ;-) XOXOXO

A strange question to ask....
hi guys, OK so I know this is an extremely weird and strange question to ask and i'm terribly sorry it has nothing to do with makeup etc but I can't get answers anywhere else...so for a long time now I have been extremely self conscious with my breast size. I am 18 in november this year and I know i'm still very young but they just dont seem to be growing and i just don't feel like a girl due to having barely anything there. i'm a 32C BUT thats with alot of padding i dont have much there really. im not flat chested but they could pass a man **bleep** really...I HATE the size they are and i just want a good breast size that will make me feel confident WITHOUT having to have breast implants I have tried massaging them and doing breast exercises, and also tried breast enhancing chewing gum!! any advice???? ALSO i asked my doctor about how i can put weight on and he just keeps telling me to eat more meals etc, I have a fast metabolism so it doesn't work! i am 5ft4 and just over 8 stone in weight. PLEASE help, ANY advice i would really appreciate. I just cant seem to get anywhere  thank you so much, louise  xo

Help the aliens are doing stuff to my lipstick!
So yesterday something happened that made me truly question my sanity. After a week of searching my house for audacious Lana, that I am sure I misplaced I discovered that audacious Grace was sitting in my magnetically connected glob of audacious lipstick. I'm pretty sure that I never purchased Grace?  I have Anita, Vivian, Barbra, and Jeanie but not Grace.  I could have sworn  Lana was the first audacious lady I purchases? Now Grace is here? I'm so confused. I turn 30 in a few days and I spent 10 min yesterday just staring at my lipstick  in utter disbelief. Might be time to start keeping a written log of makeup items. Anyone else out there do this?
