Heartsmyface has over 5000 hearts!
One of my all time favorite BTers crossed the big 5k mark.  She is always helpful and friendly.  This is the reigning Queen of Pink.  With all of her new Jill Stuart items, she will reign a lot longer, too.  Here's to Leah, and may she receive many, many more hearts as everyone else realizes how awesome she is.

Drink of the day: What's in your cup??
Now that the weather is getting colder (in most places) more of us are switching to hot tea, coco, etc. So lets share - who is drinking what (from teas, to coffees to even wines, etc), post a pic if you would like ; other wise just specify the name of your beverage  and continue to enjoy it     My husband woke me up with a hot tea  for breakfast. It was Green Mint Tea - now I feel refreshed, awake but still not ready for this day !!!

I swear I saw a thread with a title like this today, but now I can't find it. If this is a duplicate sorry...   Keeping with the other threads of 5 things...I thought this would be fun. What are your 5 favorite music artists/bands?   I don't listen to much new music, I'm usually stuck in the 40's to 60's, but I've found a few new artists/bands I like.   1. Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings 2. Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators 3. Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears 4. The Black Keys 5. Fleet Foxes

Has anybody had any experience with Scentsy products? Are they worth it?
I know this is extremely non-make-up related but in hopes of getting some feedback, I'm asking you all - Have you used Scentsy products before? Do they work as well as they say they do? I have a glade element warmer and with it, I used the glade wax cubes - but they lose their smell super quick and don't travel well (i'll only be able to smell it if i walk up to it )  I'm thinking of placing a Scentsy order but I don't want to waste my money as they are not cheap.    Thanks everyone!

6 Reasons for breaking up text
I saw this article on Yahoo about a guy who broke up with a girl he had been dating for 7 weeks. He texted her the six reasons he was breaking up with her. She said she didn't respond, and I don't blame her. The last one really gets me. LOL   Ever had a break up text like this?     ETA: The lady said this about her now former boo:  “He was 30, had a job, a car and a house. Certainly not what I normally manage to attract, so I thought I was onto something,” she said. ”He was a bit of a nerd, perhaps a bit quiet, but a genuinely nice guy all the same.”

Just in case anyone needs a little morning/evening pick-me-up, I'll link some Happy News articles for you. (I'm still not clear on the rules for outside links, hopefully these won't disappear?? If they do, these are all coming from HuffPo.)   http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/13/cops-fini sh-grandmas-grocery-shopping_n_6152628.html?utm_hp ...   tl;dr version: a great-grandma had her purse snatched at a Super Target, who called the cops. The two cops who responded helped her cancel all of her credit cards as soon as they arrived, then took her grocery list and finished all of her shopping for her (and paid for it!). They escorted her home, where her blind and wheel-chair bound husband was waiting for her, and returned later with new door locks and installed them for her.   http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/13/french-bu lldog-does-pushups_n_6154794.html?utm_hp_ref=good- ...   tl;dr version: it's a French Bulldog doing pushups while her owner does them. deadfromcute

What Does Everyone Do For a Living?
When reading through responses on various threads, I've seen people mention that they are overseas on business trips. I've also seen people reference schooling and their major/program.  I'm curious what everyone does for a living. It appears that beauty addicts come from all walks of life.  I am an Intensive Supervision Probation Officer. I supervise felony offenders. What do you do? Or what are you studying?

Friday Afternoon Fun: Why Did You Pick Your Screen Name?
Hi beauties,       Just wanted to leave everyone with a fun Friday afternoon question as we cruise into the weekend...   I see a lot of interesting screen names on BT (sometimes in my head I try and figure out what they mean) and I'm curious to know why you chose yours.   One off the top of my head is user  fluffymuha  - she already explained to me in another thread what it means, but in my head I thought  muha  might have stood for  M ake  U p  H air A rtist.  Silly, I know.   Anyway, I'll start us off.   I have been mochapj since I was 12 or 13.  I use mocha to describe my complexion (kinda chocolatey/coffee with cream) and PJ are my first and middle initials.   Now you go...

It all started with a sample...
We're all fans of samples. They're cute, they're usually free, and they introduce us to new products. So, what are some of the best samples you ever got, i.e., gave you a new obsession, prompted you to pounce on the full-size ASAP, changed your outlook on life, and/or became one of your holy grail products?   For me, some of my more memorable samples have been:   -Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foudation (just tried today, omg the texture!) -Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation (I repeat, omg the texture!) -Tom Ford Velvet Orchid Eau de Parfum Spray -Ole Henriksen Lemon Strip Flash Peel -Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment (I was seriously in love, that is until I cheated on KS with OH. Sigh.) -Stila In the Light palette (one little sample card turned me not only onto this palette, but palettes in general!)   What are some of yours?       .

Why do people gobble up fake/counterfeit makeup?
I'm in a Facebook group for a hobby. People sell things through the group. Recently, a woman said the hobby was too time consuming and shortly after, she posted pictures of {{obviously fake}} UD palettes (N1, N2, and N3). She said she was selling them for $10 each.   Within 3 hours, she had 450 orders. Many of the orders were for multiple palettes. Three or four people expressed doubt about their safety, posting links to segments on ABC's morning show and The Doctors about how tests found the fakes had different ingredients (in one case, many times the amount of lead that's safe for makeup).   Despite the discussion about fake products, people still snapped up the palettes, many saying they were giving them as Christmas gifts.   I just don't get it. WHY?!? These products are going on our faces. Around our eyes! Why are they buying this junk?

SNL - Do people still watch this show?
I gave up cable a couple of years ago, a conscious decision. However I do have Hulu. I've noticed that Saturday Night Live is on there. I've watched a few episodes but have been incredibly disappointed in the writing and sketches. The show used to be funny and edgy. It used to be "the thing" to discuss at the water cooler on Mondays and people would talk about musical performances like they were a concert.    My question is this - do people still watch this show? It seems like the show lost its edge years ago. I'm actually surprised it's still on the air. Am I the only one who feels like this about SNL? Maybe the writing is just over my head or I'm not hip enough to get the jokes? But I no longer find it funny.

Sometimes a disability really sucks.
I have the Givenchy Le Rouge in Framboise Velours in my possession.  Beautiful color, but I may end up returning it because I should not have to use my teeth to get the tube to open so I can put it on.  With myotonic dystrophy, the muscles in the hands and feet tend to get weaker first (slow progression and begins in extremities), but this tube is just frustrating as all get out.  An expensive tube of lipstick is not worth this much grief.    So if I return/exchange it, what should I get in it's place?  Fair skin, brown eyes and hair, so give me some suggestions.  Light, dark, anything!  Or even a similar color to it.

Is it insane to...
Go to Sephora tomorrow morning to do my swatching and decision making and then go back for the event tomorrow night?   Wednesday is my day off which usually means it's chock full of appointments that I can't do on other days. Tomorrow is no exception and my appointments skew late.  I will likely get to the event at like 7:45 or 8:00 and I'm worried about feeling rushed when deciding on products.  I'm just worried the staff will think I'm crazy for going in the morning and then coming back in the evening? I know and like most of these people and am invested in them not thinking I'm *too* crazy.   Thoughts?

About friends
We all know tomorrow is the big event day from 7-9, and I had told my friend about it, and she's the one I always hang out with and kind of got her hooked to sephora. She said she didn't think she could make it cause she has to work. But just to clarify, I asked her today just to make sure, cause I don't want to remove her name and then have her say that she could go.. but I couldn't help feeling bummed out when she said she couldn't go. I told her it was fine, no big deal.. I just wanted to have someone to go with cause I don't like  going to events alone. But after I told her "I just want to clarify that way I don't have a reserved spot and then I go and they ask me for my guest and whatnot." But the way she responded, at least to me felt kind of like she was getting annoyed with me. "I thought I told you I couldn't go." Just made me feel like she had just literally pushed me away. I know she has a job but .. I mean, she made me feel like there was actual harm done in asking. Same deal kind of happened with the Rocky Horror Picture show, I was just feeling so tired because I hadn't slept well, and I toldher I wouldn't be able to make it and she gave me attitude. I don't know.   Do you guys ever feel this way when you're trying to do something nice with/for a friend?
