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?

Come and let everyone know if you've done a trade with someone or they've been an awesome TSB contributor!

Pokemon Go!
This is a thread for the new app/game Pokemon Go. Please feel free to share anything and everything about it. Who is your starter? What team do you represent? Any funny stories or places you've caught Pokemon?         I started with Squirtle, growing up playing all the Pokemon games I almost always chose the water Pokemon. And Wartortle is one of my top favorites. I just started playing and haven't left my house yet, but I've found a Meowth on my bed. I'm only level two, but when the time comes I will be representing Team Mystic, Articuno is my all time favorite legendary.

The Beauty of Social Media
Whether you’re a qualified make-up artist looking for clients, or just an enthusiastic beauty blogger, social media is a great platform to get noticed. It’s a crowded space though. So how can you make sure you stand out?   Create a brand   It’s important to start cultivating your brand early on. This includes the basics, like a name and profile image; but it will also help to inform your content and how it’s edited. A good place to start is by thinking about your style, or what kind of styles you like to create. Do you love creating clever, natural make-up looks? Or are killer nails your thing?   Other things to consider might be colour schemes, tone, language, and (of course) your target audience.   Find your audience   Your target audience goes hand in hand with your brand – especially if you’re trying to sell your services. It’s important to know who you’re talking to! For example, teenagers aren’t likely to be interested in your new expensive foundation; and ladies might not care much about your excellent beard trimming techniques.   Different platforms attract different audiences; and those audiences expect different kinds of content.    Target your content   For make-up and beauty, Youtube and Instagram are ideal starting points. YouTube is great for tutorials for a full face of make-up, or an intricate up do – think about 5 minutes or more, with a voice over or you explaining what you’re doing. Instagram, on the other hand, has traditionally been used for photos.   However, in 2013 Instagram introduced 15 second videos; they upgraded this to 60 second videos in early 2016. This won’t be enough for a full face tutorial, but it’s plenty of time to demonstrate a cool technique or new product. The expectations for an Instagram video are different that for longer videos on Youtube – for instance, users are less likely to turn on the sound.    Make it personal   The top reason that social media has become such a valued marketing tool is the “social” aspect. Beauty gurus who make it aren’t necessarily better at what they do than everyone else; most of the time, they’re just more interesting, or more likeable.   Take Pixiwoo, for example. They’re a sister duo of makeup artists who have a huge online following. One of the sisters, Nikki did a make-up tutorial while heavily pregnant, and Sam recently did a video with her eleven year old daughter. They’re incredibly likeable, and subscribers get an insight into their business and personal lives through following them online.   How has this contributed to their business? Well, they’ve recently filmed a documentary for the BBC, no doubt because of their easy style in front of the camera. They also have their own range of brushes, which they often use in their videos (and led me to buying a few). But despite their success, they still publish regular tutorials and keep their Twitter and Instagram up to date, which keeps their fan base hooked.   Get stuck in   More important than anything that’s gone previously is this number one tip: get started! You can add new platforms later on, and hone your brand and audience as you go. The most important part is doing. It’s recommended that brand social media accounts post every day; more for instant platforms like Twitter and Instagram.   When you’re getting started, you might worry about having limited content to work with. I recently helped my friend get kicked off on social media, and we’ve tried a smattering of content to find out what works best. This has included some cross-channel promoting (ask your Instagram followers to like you on Facebook and vice versa); asking clients to contribute using the #selfiesaturday hashtag; and posting about what’s going on in the salon. Mixing up your posts like this keeps it fresh, and helps to build your online personality. It also allows you to find out what your followers like best, and can guide your ongoing strategy.

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:

High School Visual Arts/ Makeup Course
Hello BTers!   I'm hoping you can help me out a little with a project I'm very excited about!    I teach at an outreach (last chance) high school which allows for a certain amount of curriculum flexibility to help pull my students (kicking, screaming and despite their best efforts) through their high school diploma requirements. After years of creatively filling out course modification forms, I've finally been given dispensation to offer a visual arts and health credits for a makeup/ cosmetology course!!!!   I'm struggling to figure out what materials to provide my students with that will allow them to best learn to work with colour and shading. Any suggestions? Keep in mind, this is public school.... my budget is about $75 CDN per student :/  I'm writing sponsorship request letters like my life depends on it!    Also, if you have any assignment/project ideas, I'd love to hear them!

The Walking Dead - Theories, Questions, & General Excitement!
OFF-TOPIC thread devoted to just The Walking Dead-- Anyone who loves the show is welcome to geek out about it here!! Let's talk about past OR present story lines, theorize, ask questions about things we might not have understood, grieve for lost characters, explain what makes us fans, show off TWD-related merchandise, etc.  Oh and memes of course!  We should probably try to use the SPOILER TAGS in here when talking about story lines so we don't accidentally ruin anyone else's "viewing experience"! (FYI the spoiler button is at the top of your post box, the circular symbol right after  ABC)   First, I just want to say how I came to I love this show. I am not generally a fan of zombie stuff (well, I liked the original Dawn of the Dead, but I think that's because I got to fantasize about living in a mall!)   It was season 2 or 3 when I accidentally got hooked. Some friends of mine without cable asked me to DVR the show for them, so I did for a few weeks. I'd planned to just busy myself otherwise when they came over to watch, but I wound up having a nasty flu the night they finally showed up and I was glued to my recliner. I thought I'd just close my eyes and sleep, but I was sucked in from the start, and since I'd missed a season or two, I kept pausing it to ask my friends questions "Why is he.." "How did that...?"    Then I went back and watched all the previous stuff to be caught up, so I kinda watched it Pulp Fiction-style.   The story lines are so complex and intriguing that you don't even notice the gore after a (very short) while. It's more suspenseful than scary, and also sad, and funny, and more than anything: heartwarming (yes, really). It's really all about survival and how people fight to live (and save their loved ones) even when there's really not much to live for. (I suffer with severe depression and other issues, so that is the part that kinda inspires me most of all.)    Doesn't hurt that Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus are so hot, either.       SO ANYHOOZ....    Regarding the most recent episode from 2.16.14: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Anyone else think Lizzie is one evil little kid? My gawd, I seriously thought she was going to suffocate baby Judith the other night. And after seeing her cut up the rabbits, I'm pretty sure now she was the one feeding rats to the walkers at the prison, and doing other weird stuff with them. Anyone else think Lizzie is one evil little kid? My gawd, I seriously thought she was going to suffocate baby Judith the other night. And after seeing her cut up the rabbits, I'm pretty sure now she was the one feeding rats to the walkers at the prison, and doing other weird stuff with them. Spoiler (Highlight to read) My boyfriend actually thinks that it was LIZZIE who killed Karen and David at the prison, and Carol took the heat for her since she's been sort of a mother figure to her. Seems legit, actually. My boyfriend actually thinks that it was LIZZIE who killed Karen and David at the prison, and Carol took the heat for her since she's been sort of a mother figure to her.

Music: Recently Listened To
I think it's fairly safe to say that all of us hear music at some point during the day, whether it be on the radio, YouTube, iPod/mp3 device, etc.  What's a song or two that you recently heard?  I figured this would be a neat way to perhaps share some of our favorite artists and songs.  Who knows, some of us may discover something to add to our music library or rediscover an old favorite.   Right now, I'm listening to "If I Die Young" by The Band Perry on YouTube.  I've only heard a few of their songs, and this is the only one I like.  Just because I live in their hometown doesn't mean I have to be a die hard fan lol.  I only like so much popish elements in country music.  I love country music by Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Trace Adkins, Montgomery Gentry, Shania Twain, Dierks Bentley, pretty much those that have been around for a while.  Especially Alan Jackson.  I know the words to a lot of his songs lol.   "If I die young, bury me in satin Lay me down on a bed of roses Sink me in the river at dawn Send me away with the words of a love song"

Quitting A Job Without A Backup Job
I hope to get some input from anyone who has quit their job without having another job lined up. I have been at my job for two years and to say that it's toxic and dysfunctional is an understatement and all the employees can't even comprehend how this company stays in operation. I have developed clinical depression, anxiety, migraines, my teeth actually hurt, I developed a facial tic and even diarrhea (sorry for the TMI).  I really just want to give my two weeks notice and quit. I'm 47 years old and absolutely terrified that I won't be able to find another job.   If you quit your job, any advice and did you regret doing it? Thanks!

Help me make up my mind ~ Should I buy this product? (and other ramblings)
After searching for threads like this, I was not able to find one that really hit this particular point.  If there is one, please advise and I will delete this thread with my apologies.   Example of why I thought to create this thread: (timeline below of many BTers during a purchase process)  1. I want to buy a product  2. Wait, I'm not sure if I want to buy this product.  3. Maybe I want to buy this product but I need to know if it's a good product but there are so many reviews and I want a second opinion.  4. What do I do?   Well... you come here! Run it by the group... and see what others say about using the product and/or what they know about it. Make an informed decision. Yes, reviews can help but I trust the people on the forums most definitely and if nothing else, I would feel like I'm shopping with a good girlfriend.   Let's try it out ~ What do you want to buy but you need a second opinion before you swipe that card!?!

Samples! How did they effect your purchasing decision?
Hello!   I make my buying decisions based on 'research' on reviews, vids, custom-store samples, etc. But Sephora offers (3) free samples with every order in the hopes of enticing us to buy things we normally wouldn't. I recently started to wonder if the random selection of (3) free samples was actually effecting anyone's buying decisions.   My experiences:   The recent sample of eyebrow pencil from Benefits was fantastic, and I will be making a purchase based on the free sample for the first time.   I had always meant to try Smashbox primer, and was sooo excited when I got it as one of my 3 samples.. but I was terrible! Glad I didn't have to make a return!   Tell us about your experience with samples!
