This is a serious question. My family loves holidays.... especially Thanksgiving and Christmas. I've always loved this time of year. I'm recently engaged and right now I feel like everyone is mad at me. How do couples split up the family time during the holidays without making everyone feel shortchanged? For Thanksgiving-- my mom is mad that we're leaving early and my future mother in law is upset that we're coming late. Should we just split up and go to our own family celebrations without each other? What are we supposed to do at Christmas? What happens if we have kids? My family is in Philly. His is in DC. We both reside in Maryland. Do we just spend holidays riding up and down the interstate? I just feel sad. I don't like making problems in the middle of something that is supposed to be fun but I really don't know what to do.
Joe's Kid has reached the big 3k. From one Daddy's Girl to another, I have to say she is amazing. She makes everyone feel welcome. Thanks for being so wonderful with everyone. May your amazingly bright eyes always be brighter than the rest of us (who use a lot of GlamGlow)!
our darling syd has reached 5000 hearts!!! she's an amazing bt contributor - from the trades threads, to recognizing makeup as art, to always having a recommendation! syd is the woman who sees the beauty in everything! but even more she's an amazing friend!!! syd i love you and i'm honoured to be able to call you a friend!!! let's hear it for our sydbristow!!!!
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?
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.
So I feel like doing my makeup, but it's raining so I don't think I'll be going out. That's not the point of this status though. What kind of music do you prefer on a rainy day? Mine goes from classical music, to the beatles, and of course - David Bowie! Edited to include the picture I took the other day.
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 !!!
One of my all time favorite BTers has finally achieved her long overdue Hall of Fame Status. She is friendly, helpful and a wonderful asset to our community. I know she's touched my life, and I am guessing she has touched quite a few of you as well. We all envy her amazing eyes. Please join me in showing her the love she deserves. Congrats, Meaghan! BT loves you!!!
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.
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!
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.
I keep my living room and bed room clocks 5 minutes ahead of actual time. Although I know these are ahead still it helps me manage the early morning rush to get kids ready for school and hubby for job and kids are always ready to leave 5 minutes earlier than their pickup time and we have a few extra minutes to deal with any unexpected situation. I wonder how many of you do same and keep some of the clocks ahead.
I got cut ahead of in the grocery line (again!) today, and while I was fuming, got to thinking of what bad behaviors of people really get me going. Feel free to add your favorite pet peeves. No particular order 1- People who cut ahead of you in line, especially when you've been waiting awhile, or you are running late and don't need to be later. 2- People who go through the express 10 items or less lane with a half cart full of stuff. Taking forever to check out due to trying to use expired coupons or coupons for stuff they didn't purchase gets my goat too. 3-People who act like they know it all (extra credit to those horses-patooties who really don't know but act like they do!) 4-Pests who take up the only 2 parking spaces by parking in both with their car, right near the store on a rainy day so I have to walk a huge distance and get soaked. Going to end now to give everyone else a chance!
Feeling under the weather, lucky to still be able to go to my mom and get pampered. As I was laying on her bed I could hear her doing her nightime skin routine. The products she bought on the 20 percent sale. The fab skincare set and claudiale beauty elixir. It made me smile and felt happy for her. She is really liking this set. I asked her if she noticed a change in skin and she said it looks like she has. I just wanted to share a little moment that one not might think too much about but sometimes you realize its little moments that often have a big impact in your life. Memories although small will last a lifetime,
It took me over an hour and a half to place my order on the Urban Decay website. I know that Black Friday is a busy time but wow! I've never had this much of a problem. I almost gave up and forgot about placing my order but the Ammo palette for $10 was too good of an offer to pass up. Eh! Time for a nap!
With many of us talking about some of my favorite shows, The Walking Dead and Once Upon a Time, I thought I'd get the ball rolling. Put up your lists everyone! 1. The Walking Dead 2. Once Upon a Time 3. So You Think You Can Dance 4. Sherlock 5. Pride and Prejudice (with Colin Firth)
I just renewed my drivers license yesterday and made it a point to do it in person so I could retake my picture. The last picture I took had been unexpected and I had no chance to prepare. Fingers crossed this one will come out better. How does yours look? Any good stories out there?
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?
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.
With the holidays coming up (Christmas is a month away as of today!), I thought we could all share what we celebrate and how we do it, and if there's anything on our wish list (whether as a gift or taking advantage of the sales). I was raised Christian so we celebrate Christmas, and we try to put most of the emphasis on spending time with loved ones and giving to those in need. We sponsor a family or two that are in need, and give them gifts (that include both needs and wants), and even sometimes invite them over for Christmas dinner. Since my daughter is almost 4, I'm trying to show her that there's more to the season than just getting toys. My goal is to get her to pick out toys she hasn't played with and donate them herself, as well as pick one of her brand new Christmas toys to give, once she opens them all. I also decided to get her things that encourage more creativity: an art desk with drawers for supplies, some dress up clothes including superhero, elsa, and doctor, books, and a snowman/snow fort kit. For those who give gifts, I've told them to either put some money away for my daughter's tuition fund, donate it, or go on a "date", like catch up over a drink, dinner, movie, museum, etc. My good friend is Jewish and she has invited my daughter and I to celebrate Chanukah with her and her family this year. I don't know much about it, but I'm really excited to learn and honoured to be included! So... what about you?
As I walk the puppies, I'm freezing here in Florida. It's not supposed to be this cold here. Just wondering what the weather is like in your area. I see lots of areas seem to be getting inundated with severe amounts of snow, and I'm so thankful we don't have to worry about that cold fluffy stuff anymore. Hope everyone stays warm!
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.

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
So I've noticed that every time I look at the reviews of a product there are at least a few unhelpful (sometimes they're a little helpful) but hilarious reviews. What are your favorites that you have seen so far? Here's one I saw while browsing through UD Naked Skin reviews:
Toot toot! Round three of the Trans-Canadian travelling cosmetics train is now *closed* *Update* Here is the new train order!

Purolator #:11233766853 Ont: 9)Firespinner 10) KBmatthews 11) Yullz 12) Bcteagirl I rotated out some items so that there will be new items for the returning members. I added in some brand new Julep, Kiels, and a couple MAC. I hope everybody has a grand time, I had lots of fun putting this together! I am meeting Ivy very shortly to pass on the box to the next station! ************************************************** **** You also need to be able to meet the rules in a timely manner, keep the box moving within three days. You need to be able to post photos of what you take and link them in this thread. This is a longer train, so if you have any travel plans in the next 2-3 months, you need to include this information when you contact me. You need to: 1) Post in this thread 2) PM me, include full name, full address, if you were on a previous train, and if not the info above (Member for how long, somebody else who can vouch for you). 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! 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). If any of these are new, tape them shut and label them as new. Leave other lipsticks/etc untapped so people can see the colours. 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 *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!
Hello my beautiful people! I am looking to get a new vanity/makeup station. Currently, I am using half of my desk as a vanity and the other half as my office. It has worked fine for the past few years. But now as my makeup collection/obsession has grown larger, I ran out of room and am storing stuff in my linen closet and in my bathroom as well. I want all of my makeup, skin care, hair care, and nail polish all in one place. Please post a photo and show me (and all of the other nosy BT out there- you know who you are!) your vanity/makeup station and if you don't mind, let me know where you got it from. I am super curious to see everyone's "battle stations"! The beauty gurus on YouTube have some outrageous vanity and makeup storage areas. I rather see what my fellow BT members have! Or if you don't have your ideal vanity, but have an inspirational photo of what your dream vanity/makeup station is, you can post it as well! I need some amazing ideas and I know you all have some great taste!!! Thanks!
