Hobbies/Collecting. What's yours?
Everyone has something they love to do or collect.  What's yours?   -I am a huge Sailor Moon fan and have a rather large collection, and still growing.

What makes you happy?
  What are some things that never fail to make you happy?   How do you sustain your happiness and/or optimism?   When things get rough, what do you do to remedy your mood?   If you've experienced it, how do you combat depression or hopelessness?   How do you stay happy and grateful?

I think the sad music helps too, especially for when I don't know why i'm upset.  I think it helps me if I embrace my sad feelings and let it out rather than bottling it... see post

TV
Hi! I was wondering what everyone's favorite TV shows are. No particular reason, I am just curious and maybe want to find my next series to start. My favorite right now is Game of Thrones, and I love the Good Wife, but I'm still on the first season (watching on Amazon Prime.) My favorite of all time is Dexter, with Breaking Bad a close second. Does anybody else watch these?

HALL OF FAMER karma3p80 / HALL OF FAMER HALL OF FAMER / replied
Yep, Dexter is my favorite of all time. The ending for me was good- not exactly what I would have chosen for it, but it wasn't as bad as some people complained about.  ... see post
List of Successful Traders! January 2015
Hey everyone, I updated the list of successful traders. Please post here if you have a successful trade with someone. I will also check with the other Topic and keep this list updated weekly!   Once a person has 5 successful trades I will bold their name, and no longer keep track of successful trades.   I am checking dates of last activity on BT - if a trader has not been active in over 1 year I will remove them from the list, if they become active again I will re-start their successful trades at 1   If you have a bad trade with someone, or you know someone who pulled shenanigans in a TSB - LET ME KNOW! I will keep a document that lists these people. Please PM this information! If you are starting a TSB or are unsure of a trade feel free to ask me for the list of Unsuccessful traders and I will send it to you     Link to the other discussion: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Successf ul-Trades-or-TSB-Experiences/td-p/1012387   Bold = 5 or more vouchers    7/7/2015     Spoiler (Highlight to read) 4Ali4 AMHWKI x 2 Anb0906 Annec322 AnneMCC Annypoo Aparrish Arclightlux x 2 Arielaaaaaaaa x 2 Armybeauty x 3 Aviscardi AznAngelliz Bea0t Beautytester/chicdabbler Beeberz x 2 Beethousand BrennaBombshell Brittieee Butterblume Buxombabe80 x 3 CalamityJane85 Carolang Carrie1975 Carrierose Chaotika573 x 2 Chelsss x 2 chlotam Chupi Clarks18 x 2 CuriousCannibal Daisies121 DandyLionFluff Danimazz x 3 Desertdancer x 2 DesertRose0706 DitzCore x 2 DiVWA Drrragon Eadelaide1 EllieyJelly x 2 Enableme emmy89 eriles EvangelineDamon x 2 Evno Firespinner Fluffymuha Garnett Ghkim Gogreyhound Greenchili Greenporchlights x 3 guzelkiz Gwenhwyfar hackneyfl happygen harlequinginger heartsmyface Hellvetica Heatherbee x 2 Hipquest Honeybrownbunny x 2 Hypnoticpoise Ilovebears Ireneh Itscarin x 2 Itsjaimiehere Ivyxox Jellybean917 x 3 jcmb jenfromnyc Jenji Jenpred JessicaClara x 2 Jessyiniowa Joannimation x 2 Juicytulip x 4 Jxw200 x 3 Kalex Kariyava Kateye7 x 4 KatelovesYSL x 2 KayyLynn x 2 Kellsmuneoka Kellyjmolen Kiki1517 Killahbabe x 2 Kimchikween x 4 Knuevekm kristallovesdogs kristiewin Ladymeag Linda711 x 2 Leopardprint Lylysa Mafan Makeupobesessed Malday x 3 Maltipoo66 Manniface Mariahk83 Meagboho MegEm Melde x 4 Michelleshops x 4 Minibux Missey1973 x 2 Missie772 Mixe x 4 MK89 MlleCC MochaPJ Mollybb x 4 Mommyto4 x 2 Monikay Moregun89 MPolansky Mrsbaine MyChoi x 4 Nancienano Newandaddicted Nicrohr Nightknight Nikki x 3 Nishcakes x 4 Njattana Notcreative Oklady2013 Penelopepuffman Pixyfaygo x 2 Plm95 Prettyinpa Princesskat17 x 2 Redwagon44 Rhiannon1419 Rikkie Roseps135 x 2 Roxystar4 Sangova x 3 Sbowden x 3 Sdbeautyjunkie1 shadetertiary ShannonAlexis x 4 Shirleylin88 x 4 Shortstuff07 Sourpanda x 3 Sn22 x 3 Sp2001 Spacesuit Sparklekai x 3 Spoiledbrat spotspotcat Sprytely x 2 Sschulte1014 Starletta8 Stephanilynn StyleLynn x 2 Sugarkenzie SuzeAlex SydBristow talinder Teresaanne92 Thesocialquota thesupergirl Tigrelili to90 Trishalyn Unblownkisses Vanillammm x 3 Vegchililover78 Veronika23 Wendyomgwar x 4 Wingatprsct Wonbinlover x 2 Yazmin x 3 Yenx YouAreAlways Yullz Zpsid91 x 4 4Ali4AMHWKI x 2Anb0906 Annec322AnneMCCAnnypoo AparrishArclightlux x 2Arielaaaaaaaa x 2Armybeauty x 3Aviscardi AznAngelliz Bea0tBeautytester/chicdabblerBeeberz x 2BeethousandBrennaBombshellBrittieeeButterblumeBux ombabe80 x 3CalamityJane85Carolang Carrie1975CarrieroseChaotika573 x 2Chelsss x 2chlotamChupiClarks18 x 2CuriousCannibalDaisies121DandyLionFluff Danimazz x 3Desertdancer x 2DesertRose0706DitzCore x 2DiVWADrrragonEadelaide1EllieyJelly x 2Enableme emmy89erilesEvangelineDamon x 2EvnoFirespinnerFluffymuhaGarnettGhkimGogreyhoundG reenchiliGreenporchlights x 3guzelkiz Gwenhwyfarhackneyflhappygenharlequingingerheartsmy faceHellveticaHeatherbee x 2HipquestHoneybrownbunny x 2HypnoticpoiseIlovebearsIrenehItscarin x 2ItsjaimiehereIvyxoxJellybean917 x 3jcmbjenfromnycJenjiJenpred JessicaClara x 2JessyiniowaJoannimation x 2Juicytulip x 4Jxw200 x 3KalexKariyavaKateye7 x 4KatelovesYSL x 2KayyLynn x 2KellsmuneokaKellyjmolenKiki1517Killahbabe x 2Kimchikween x 4Knuevekm kristallovesdogskristiewinLadymeagLinda711 x 2LeopardprintLylysaMafanMakeupobesessed Malday x 3Maltipoo66MannifaceMariahk83MeagbohoMegEmMelde x 4Michelleshops x 4Minibux Missey1973 x 2Missie772Mixe x 4MK89 MlleCCMochaPJMollybb x 4Mommyto4 x 2MonikayMoregun89MPolanskyMrsbaineMyChoi x 4NancienanoNewandaddictedNicrohr NightknightNikki x 3Nishcakes x 4NjattanaNotcreative Oklady2013PenelopepuffmanPixyfaygo x 2Plm95PrettyinpaPrincesskat17 x 2Redwagon44Rhiannon1419RikkieRoseps135 x 2Roxystar4Sangova x 3Sbowden x 3Sdbeautyjunkie1shadetertiaryShannonAlexis x 4Shirleylin88 x 4Shortstuff07 Sourpanda x 3Sn22 x 3Sp2001SpacesuitSparklekai x 3SpoiledbratspotspotcatSprytely x 2Sschulte1014 Starletta8StephanilynnStyleLynn x 2SugarkenzieSuzeAlexSydBristow talinderTeresaanne92Thesocialquota thesupergirlTigrelilito90TrishalynUnblownkissesVan illammm x 3Vegchililover78Veronika23Wendyomgwar x 4WingatprsctWonbinlover x 2Yazmin x 3YenxYouAreAlwaysYullzZpsid91 x 4

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?

5 things you've been loving this summer!
Hello everyone! Since its the middle of summer here on the east coast of the USA, I thought it'd be fun to do a post about things you've been loving this summer- whatever it may be- beauty- food- clothes- whatever!  I know there are a lot of threads similar to this- but I don't know if I've come across one yet that is directly about summer! haha!  Here are my 5 things that I've been loving this summer:  #1. Coconut. (OMG just about everything coconut has me HOOKED! Whether it be a coconut cake, body butter, etc!)  #2 Going out to get some soft ice cream!  #3. Formula X nail polish in Hercules, and High Frequency.  #4. Sleeping in almost every morning (the latest being 9:30am)  #5. Fresh fruit (fruit isn't as enjoyable in the winter because its usually not in "season"! Love me some strawberries and raspberries- don't forget the coconut! LOL!)  What are 5 things that you've been loving this summer?? ~XOXOXO

What!?! You have over 1000 points and you don't want to redeem them?!?
*ranting session.    So I'm getting tired of the SA who are shocked I have >1000 points and I don't want to redeem them. Once or twice I get....but its most consistently EVERYTIME! Maybe because  of this forum I have a different view but I'm pretty sure a lot of people have WAAAAAY more points. Why is so shocking to the SA? Are we rare point hoarders? ( i don't think I have as many points compared to the 5k plus club girls!!)   Especially with the 4x...3x points event coming up....I didn't think we were unicorns!   *End rant

What is your favorite thing about the Fall?
So, I am not a summer person, I hate the heat and sweating the minute I step outside.   I am an indoor kind of gal in the Summer! I never would have survived before air conditioning! LOL. Anyway, there are so many things that I love about the Fall. Care to share what you love? For me, I would say the thing I like the most is just the crisp Autumn weather, where you can cozy up in a sweater or jacket and walk around without all the humidity. Plus, Halloween is my favorite holiday and my wedding anniversary is in October as well.

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?

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.   ETA:   Where to shop!   So I do have a list/link somewhere with brands and where they are found.  I'll try and dig it out and if you want it pm me   For those who don't know...   Shoppers Drug Mart and Murale have a wonderful loyalty program and your points are worth "cash" in store.   The Bay is bringing in more brands... just recently Burberry. I'm thinking we will see more good things come.  They also have a VIP program... I am not too sure how it all works but it applies to all purchases from the store and you get a 20$ off 100$ makeup purchase coupon almost every month... Like who wouldn't want that!  Hello MAC!   Beautylish ships to Canada and they are FAST!  Order processed and shipped within the hour and arrives the next day!   Now that we have Nordies in Canada you might be able to call a counter and get items shipped to you.  Some things you can get shipped from the site.   Apparently Saks is coming.  I believe The Bay is the one who will be owning them and bring them in.   If you get a good SA at Holts you can also get stuff shipped to you.   Sorry been MIA from this board a long time.

I've already PMed a couple of BTers who live in NYC, but I figured I'd ask everyone for advice on what I simply should not miss during my upcoming trip.   My friend and I will be staying in Brooklyn for five days in August, and we're looking to experience more local haunts as opposed to places most tourists frequent (I lived in New York for half of my life, so I've done the Times Square / Natural History / Statue of Liberty thing many, many times). I want to walk the Brooklyn Bridge and my friend wants to spend time in Central Park, but other than that, we really want to find some hidden gems: places to eat, waste time, listen to good music, and shop.   So, NYC locals, what do you suggest?

PET LOVE! <3
Before I say anything- this post is going to be totally off topic and not about makeup at all!  I thought it would be nice to express our love for our pets, and maybe even pictures, too!  To start off, I used to be a dog person-- years ago.... But my whole perspective changed when a completely mellow nourished(not exaggerating!) female cat wandered in our backyard, hungry and hot. (This was in the summer of 2012) I still remember the poor kitty that was shaking as she ate a can of tuna and a bowl of milk because she was so hungry... Did I forget to mention that she was also a pregnant cat? Without a doubt I grew to love that cat, and I never thought in a million years that I would now be a cat person! But it doesn't stop there... We took that stray cat in, (after vet check up-shots- etc) and named her Olive. (People always ask me why we named her that- but she has these big beautiful eyes that look almost like olives!)  About a month later she had kittens-- 7 to be exact.. Unfortunately one of them was a runt and wasn't even fully developed- and after many attempts to feed it by hand, and through many tears, and a few days- the kitten died. The rest of the 6 kittens were so stinkin' adorable and one of the best experiences I've ever had to take care of as far as animals are concerned! They were so cute- it was so amazing to see them grow and change and learn new things.. We named them all too, even though we didn't attempt to keep all of them! (We as in my family- I still live at home with my parents and siblings)  Samuel, (male) Marty,(male), Charlie (male), Titus(male) Gracie(female), and Mabel(female.) After weeks of deciding which kittens to keep we final decided on Titus and Mabel. When the kittens were old enough to be separated from their mother, we found a great little shelter for the rest of them until they could be adopted to hopefully good homes.  After a couple of months Mabel began to ruin our house by clawing everything-- sadly we have to give her away as well, but later on we decided to get Olive(mom) and Titus(male kitten) declawed.. (We hadnt thought of declawing Mabel at that time so it wasn't an option!) Of course I know many people don't agree with declawing of animals- but if they're indoor cat like ours- and if you get it done when they are still kittens(like Titus was) then they should be fine... And yes- our cats turned out completely fine, after about a month of healing. Anyway, Olive and Titus it was; both beautiful tiger calico cats... That's not  the end of the story though. Last year we actually had 2 strays- one I will not bother telling the story of because he was suffering from terrible accidents outdoors that led him to being put down- and the other one I will quickly explain. Once again, mellow nourished, black & white tuxedo cat, a stray, wanders into our backyard, a sweet little thing. (GOSH his face is the cutest thing ever!) So lets just say that my family and I live with three cats now... Olive, Titus, and Mittens. (Mittens is such a common name for a cat with four white paws!) I love them all so so much, and they each are truly different and I love seeing each of their personalities! I have to admit that Titus is the SWEETEST cat in the entire world--- and I have to say that it is most likely because he was born in our home. He is so cute- he still meows like a kitten- and is totally overweight. (yes, my boo is on a diet- as the rest of them are, LOL!) SO- after I just blabbed my big mouth for half an hour- I want to hear YOUR story of your pets-whatever your pet may be. (And I do still like dogs- but I'm totally a crazy cat lady now!) Please feel free to share your story as well, whatever it might be- whatever means the most to you about your pet- whatever seems special to you--- I hope this post wasn't too boring, lol, and that you do enjoy it! XOXOXO PS. And as I write this post Titus is sleeping next to me. <3

I looked at the other cities that hold the tradeshow like LA and NY, they have way more fun exhibitors than TO ABH, Too Faced, DOC, UB, Stila,  no ones going to the Toronto show.

Making Healthier Choices
I know have seen various threads like this during my time on the forum, but I couldn't find a recent one, so I just started my own.   Summer seems to always be the time when my husband and I get back on the wagon with trying to make healthier choices and choose a healthier lifestyle. I really want it to stick this time. We both have a quite a lot of weight to lose and we just want to feel better.   I made a revelation Monday night in my BOXING class! (Yes, I am taking a boxing class, this week was the first one, it was a WORKOUT but I'm doing it with friends so there is a lot of support) It dawned on me that I am a lot more successful and working out and losing weight when I am doing it by going to classes. Just going to the gym with my husband doesn't do the trick, I don't have any motivation or drive just working out on the treadmill with him. (You'd think I would, that we could encourage each other, but somehow that hasn't worked so far)  But when I am in a class or working out with other friends, I push myself a lot harder and give a lot more. With my husband, he lets me give in and doesn't push me to do my best. But when I am in a class and I see my friends doing all this stuff, and don't want to stand out as the one who gives up!!!    SO, besides Boxing (which is only once a week and it's only a five week class), I'm going to try to do a better job of going to classes at the Y. Tonight, I'm going to a muscle pump class. It'll be my first time.    We are also trying to make better choices with our food. So far for me, that has meant eating a lot of fruit. Namely, blueberries. I am addicted to them. It's ridiculous.    AND the biggie- I'm cutting WAY down on how much soda I drink. This has always been the one thing that is a hangup. I haven't been able to give up soda. For now, I'm not going cold turkey. But I am drinking a lot more water and cutting way back on how much soda I drink.    Anyway- what kinds of things are you ladies doing to feel better or to get (Or stay) healthy?  Let's encourage each other!!    I've bought two shirts with the purpose of wearing them to workouts and just to encourage myself. The first one has Princess Zelda and Princess Peach on it and they are poised to fight and it says "We'll Save Ourselves, Thank You."  And the second one, just arrived yesterday, is from my new obsession (THANKS to kbmatthews), Captain Marvel, and it has her star on it and it says "Higher. Further. Faster. More."

Growing Experiences
I was looking through some old pictures on my hard drive and came across pictures from a trip I took to Spain & Morocco back in 2008.  Back then I was pretty innocent and naive.  I went with 4 other girls (1 was a really good friend of mine, another I knew pretty well, and the 4th was a good friend of the second girl) and basically I let them push me around during the whole trip.  They dismissed me because I was the youngest.  I let them because I thought they are more experienced so they know more than me.  This was totally not the case because as the only fluent Spanish and Arabic speaker I was imperative in getting us where we needed to go.   It was a great learning experience for me because it taught me to speak up for myself.  I never would have gotten to the position I have today (in my career I mean) without going through such a trying time.     Anybody have a similar kind of growing experience?  What did you learn and how has it helped you in your life?
