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?
I'm abandoning this thread. Maybe leaving BT for good. I'm sorry that I've deleted all my messages, but I no longer feel safe on this board and I don't want personal information about myself here. This used to be a safe place for me. No longer. I wish all of you well and I hope you continue to support each other here. Xoxo
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.
I'd love to see photos from people's holiday vacations or trips home. I was just chatting offline with Guze and asking about hers. I'll comment and bump up the thread periodically as I'm posting it a little before most people will be traveling. And I'm not going anywhere but did make the short trip to Malibu the other day. From the drive...SOCA in December. So where have you been? What great photos did you take?
Have a collection of extra items that you won't use but others might be interested in? Find a trade here! GUIDELINES Please list what you have available, list the condition, add a photo if you can, and what you are interested in for trade. May want to mention your location, such as U.S. When something you have to offer is no longer available OR when you have found something you were looking for, please go back and edit your post. There is a convenient cross through text option. If you list items, please use discretion with who you enter into trades with. If it's someone who's relatively new here maybe have them send to you first. Maybe set yourself up some guidelines in your post (they have to be VIB, have 100 posts etc...) about to whom you'll send to first/at the same time and anyone who doesn't meet those needs to send to you before you'll send your stuff out. (Tips thanks to Kalex.) Please consider using the Private Messages system on Beauty Talk to help ensure someone knows you are trying to contact them. The listings move to back pages and it's not always easy to keep track. You can set up to receive an email when you get a PM in your preferences. You can also access your messages by looking under your profile on the left side of the main Beauty Talk page under your avatar and clicking on the envelope. SUCCESSFUL TRADE EXPERIENCES? Consider providing your feedback on successful trades on this thread here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Successf ul-Trades-or-TSB-Experiences/td-p/1012387 Summary list of successful traders here! http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/LIST-of- the-Successful-Traders-or-TB/td-p/1071289 SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING? There is a way of searching that isn't perfect but sometimes it works - go to advanced search (click on the search magnifying glass and it shows a link to advanced search). Put it in the exact phrase you're looking for, look based on posts, not topics, and then sort the results by date (most recent should be on top). Like I said, it doesn't always work, and if someone lists Hour Glass Ambient Lighting Palette instead of Hourglass, or they happen to spell palette wrong, it may not come up. But I've gone back and found a few things anyway. PLEASE START CONTRIBUTING ON THE NEW THREAD, FOUND AT THE FOLLOWING LINK. THANKS! http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Product- Trade-Thread-01-2014-TWO/td-p/1021537
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:

@KatieBT - Hey Katie, you sent me 2 PM's and I've been desperately trying to write back to you with a double yes! But none of the PM's I've written to you will go through. 😔 (This has been going on for quite a long while, I think it's my tablet, which is currently my only online access.) I hope you will see this or that someone else can bring it to your attention and let you know I've been trying to reply. Can you contact me at my email address that is on file with my account info? Or just go with all of the info on file for me? I know you need an answer by Wednesday, so I'm praying you will see this. If you can go with that info you could PM me to let me know we are all set, or email me if need be. I just can't write back via PM. Hope you see this and that everything will work out. Hoping to hear from you to confirm every thing is okay. Thanks Katie. 🍀
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.

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.

At any rate, I'm really glad Carol's back, I was actually mad at Rick for sending her away. Spoiler (Highlight to read) I really wonder if everyone will be reunited or if things are going to split into like 4 different story lines now. I really wonder if everyone will be reunited or if things are going to split into like 4 different story lines now. Spoiler (Highlight to read) And who are those new bad-azz looking people!? SO EXCITING!!! And who are those new bad-azz looking people!? SO EXCITING!!! Ahhhhhhhhhh glad I got all that out. What say other fans? Why do you love this show? What do you think is going on/will happen?
Please tell me I'm not alone....I was grabbing my brush case, and I didn't realize the case wasn't buttoned closed (top half comes off (think Sigma case)). Right before my eyes, I saw 22 of my brushes fall to the dirty kitchen floor!!!!! What are your makeup-related tragedies?? I might not read them right away....I need time to mourn Edit: I did wash my brushes shortly thereafter. I think they're stunned by the trauma.
I've been chatting with some fellow coffee addicts over in the Random Thoughts thread but I thought maybe I should make a separate thread. So let's discuss anything/everything about coffee! I just got the Peet's Sumatra blend in the k cups and I really like it! Need to make a note to try their Major Dickinsons Blend since it's so popular.
Okay. So I am this close to buying Glamglow Masks here on Sephora. But when I was just about to click the Place Order button, I went and checked Amazon first. And lo and behold, I found a seller selling Glamglow Super-Mud Clearing Mask for about $35 ONLY!!!!! Do you think they're legit? I checked the seller's feedbacks and most of them were good. And he/she is fulfilled by Amazon. What do you girls think?
So I had some makeup (and tea) boxes laying around and wanted to use them but without all the pictures all over them, so naturally GLITTER! Coated them in Modge Podge and Glitter and now I can use them for all sorts of things and they look pretty!! I also like to take old compacts, clean them out, then pour old nail polish (applies streaky, clumps, etc) into it so it dries nice and flat, to make play pretend makeup for kids. But I have no pictures of any of those right now. As I was doing this I realized there is no way that I am the only one to re-use, re-purpose, and craft old makeup boxes, compacts, perfume bottles etc....So I wanted to start a thread where we could all share our beauty crafting ideas!! So please ladies, show me your crafts!
Black Whiskey hit 20,000 hearts! Stop in and leave a heart or message for the one who always wows us with her gorgeous and artistic looks! I know I can always count on her for some makeup inspiration and to push myself to try different applications. Thanks BW, this heart party is for you (and Luna!)
Happy Friday everyone! Was just wondering about what the most popular Tinted Moisturizers, or BB/CC creams are out there? What are some of your favorites for the days you want something easy and quick, and yet, put-together? My favorite has been the NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in St. Moritz. I have normal-dry skin, medium, warm skintone and love the warm tones that this TM has. I feel it has pretty good coverage for a TM and does not dry out my skin. It is quite a thick consistency though, as most of you may already know. Please share your favorites along with your skintype and tone. Also, what do you esp like about the product? Have a lovely long weekend everyone!
Hey guys so i notice the old thread was kinda dead so i thought would start a fresh one Se feel free to share what you are reading, what you have read, what you plan to read, recommendations and your " to read' choices!!!

Does anyone have any book suggestions for me to read?? I need some new books!! I like fantasy, sci-fi, fiction, non-fiction, period pieces, drama.... I prefer book series. Some I've read are Harry Potter ( of course) Twilight (of course) The True Blood Series, Eragon series, Lord of the Rings series, The Clan of the Cave Bear Series. I love all of Christopher Moore Books, I love Ken Follet as well. Umm.. yeah... I don't like Dean Koontz or Stephen King.. I know blasphemy (thats what my mom and my sister would say lol, they love those books, I don't at all). Sooo yeah??? What do you suggest???
We BTers are a busy bunch, and I don't know about anyone else, but I always appreciate a local's perspective on things to do, see and eat wherever I'm headed. Just booked a last minute long weekend (Thursday to Sunday) to Portland, Oregon. We'll have a car, so we were thinking about exploring beyond the Portland city limits... maybe do some breweries or wineries. Anybody with Portland (and surrounding area) recommendations? Specifically looking for where to stay in Portland (walkable, local favorites) and we love food, so any recommendations of places to eat would be most welcome!
Okay ladies and gentlepeople, My shaver has given up on me. Called it quits, headed for the non hairy hills...LOL I'm looking for a waterproof electric shaver for the bikini and underarm areas. I'm a dark skin woman with coarse hair. I use a regular razor for my legs BUT I have found an electric shaver works well on the other areas. I'm looking at this as an investment BUT I don't want to spend a ton of $$$. Anyone have any recs?
hi! I am a soon to be law student and while I love beauty blogs, so many feature routines that simply overwhelm me. Are there any good low maintenance/student lifestyle friendly blogs to recommend? Thank you!
A while ago I started a conversation asking if people thought that tattoos were beautiful, mainly because I had recently set up a date for my first one. People has asked me to post a picture when it was completed. SO.... HERE IT IS Anyone else recently get new ink? I WANNA SEE.
in the past day, I've received emails for some pretty good sweepstakes and thought of starting this thread. So here is a place we can share these types of promotional sweepstakes, prizes and giveaways with each other and hopefully, one of us will win now and again! so share BT-approved modified links, sweepstakes info and any results here. Fingers crossed one of us wins some great prizes!
So, recently I've made he decision to go cruelty free. I had made another thread asking about alternatives. However, I was also wondering for those of you who are already buying cruelty free; do you still buy from companies like Urban Decay and Tarte - who don't test on animals themselves, but their parent company does? I know that UD is owned by Estee Lauder and Tarte by Kose (At least from what I've read) who is definitely not cruelty free. Is that a deal breaker for you or do you still buy from these companies? I just would like to know how people feel about that and kind of get more insight on things.
