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?

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.

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.

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.     
Sending out warm wishes and thoughts to all the BTers in the path of the giant snow storm.  Hope you have a chance to get out for the essentials before it gets too bad.  Stay safe.

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!

Musings of a muse posted about this game on her blog and I thought it would be a fun thing for us to do together! Also because we've just entered a new year, it might help us look at our collections and habits a bit more critically. Please join me, I'd love to see all of your answers!   Greed : What’s your most expensive beauty item?   Wrath: What item do you have a love/hate relationship with? Gluttony: What brand takes up most of your collection? Sloth: What product do you neglect the most due to laziness? Pride: What product gives you the most confidence? Lust: Which item is top of your beauty wish list? Envy: Which makeup product/look is great on others but not on you?
Hey everyone, I updated the list of successful traders. Please post here if you have a successful trade with someone.

So with the Transformation thread being resurfaced and all the talk about eating healthy and making home-cooked meals,  I thought that we could share some recipes with each other! I know there are a few floating around in lylysa's What's On Your Plate thread but I thought we could drop them in one place   I used to love looking up new recipes for meals to make with my (ex) SO and haven't been doing that lately, but I'd really like to get back into cooking. I know quite a few of you are vegetarian/vegan and I'd love to see your recipes as well!   I'll start off with a really simple one. This is a super easy salad dressing recipe that I found not too long ago that tastes great and seems pretty healthy.       Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing   3 tablespoons whole grain mustard 2 tablespoons honey 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons vinegar (white wine, apple cider, red wine, or coconut) salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste       *Transformation thread  Rouge Only  ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB-ROUGE/Transfor mation-Support-Thread-Rouge-Only/td-p/1136805 )   *What's On Your Plate thread ( http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/What-s-o n-your-plate/m-p/430729/highlight/true#M10719 )

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 just wanna ask what companies give out free samples when you contact them. I only know of Mario Badescu and L'occitane.   Who doesn't love free samples anyway?

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.

hey ladies, have you heard about this super awesome program by Dior. i think more companies should have this kind of reward system for their loyal customers (hello Chanel and YSL, I'm looking at you).     What is the Dior Diva program? Every dollar spent on a Dior Beauty product equals 1 Diva Point. Once you reach the desired point level you send your original receipts and the redemption form in to the address provided on the form. Note: sales tax isn’t included towards points and all points sent in must be within a 12 month period. Currently there are five levels to the program. (When it first started there were only three levels!):   ■Adorable Diva (100 points) – you’ll receive deluxe travel sizes of Dior best sellers in a mini Dior shopping bag.   ■Fashionista Diva (250 points) – you’ll receive the Little Dictionary of Fashion written by Christian Dior plus three deluxe minis for your handbag.   ■Charming Diva (500 points) – you’ll receive a Dior charm bracelet packaged in a Dior couture box plus a deluxe Miss Dior Cherie miniature.   ■Divine Divas (1000 points) – you’ll receive a couture inspired black makeup pouch finished with a little shimmer and shine and full sizes of Serum de Rouge in Rosewood Serum, Diorshow Browstyler, Diorshow Extase Mascara and a travel size One Essential.   ■Lady Diva (2500 points) – you’ll receive a Dior Brush Set complete with Foundation, Blush, Eyeshadow, Brow and Lip brushes nestled in a black D-charm pouch and packaged in a Dior couture box. Also includes a full sized One Essential and Diorshow Lash Maximizer.   ■Diamond Diva (5000 points) – you’ll receive a Dior Couture Accessory complete with deluxe minatures for touch-ups: Diorshow Extase Mascara, 5-Couleur Eyeshadow in Stylish Move and Rouge Dior Lipstick in Rouge Blossom.   I can only dream of reaching Diamond Diva. lol.     Cza

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:  
Hi Everyone,    I just wanted to check in and wish everyone a happy holidays but also to please, please, please take care of yourself and stay healthy! I wasnt going to post about this because BT is such a positive place but I felt it was important to put this out there.    My oldest sister was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer last year at just 38 years old. This is a cancer that is supposedly for "older" people meaning you do not get screened for it until after the age of 50 because its not likely for a person to be diagnosed with it before that age. If you ever feel a pain in your body or just feel like something is not right...please go to a doctor and get checked and also let them know your family's medical history. It can save your life!! My sister's cancer was so advanced that there was no way to save her. Her treatments were just to try and keep the cancer from spreading in order to give her some more time with us. Unfortunately, her time ran out last week at the VERY young age of 40 and leaves behind my niece and nephew who are only in high school.    Even if you do not have any symptoms but you have a family history of an illness, please get regular screenings. Some cancers, like colon cancer, do not show any symptoms until its too late. I will now have to get screened for colon cancer every year for the rest of my life because the probability is higher for me since a direct relative had it. I'm sure we all know, if you can catch it early, you'll give yourself the best chance of beating it.    I apologize for such a long post and the sad nature of this post as well. But I truly want everyone to stay as healthy as possible for your own sake and also the sake of your family. You guys are the best and I'll be back on BT soon.

Beautylish Lucky Bags are back!  I missed out last year but saw some great bags.  Same deal, $75 for $150 worth of product.  US shipping only.  And the temptation of extra lucky gifts for a few fortunate buyers.  I went with Natural.   This year there are 3 choices,    BOLD The Bold Lucky Bag is for anyone who likes to stand out in a crowd, wear bright colors and express their creative spirit through makeup. If Lady Gaga were a Lucky Bag, she would be this one!   NATURAL The Natural Lucky Bag is for the person who loves products but leans toward a more neutral palette. If perfect dewey skin and a flushed cheek is your look, the Natural is for you.   MUA The MUA bag is for the serious makeup artist who wants great additions for their kit. It is for someone with professional needs—multiple foundation shades, kit tools and staples.

Alright everyone, you know the deal. Young 'uns listen up if your only reference to the TV show Friends is something your parents watched.    On second thought... if you're that young, this might not be the best thread for you. I'm officially giving this thread an R rating for mature concepts and mild to moderate sexuality.    On the TV show Friends, Ross and Rachel each were allowed to maintain a list of 5 people/celebrities with whom they could cheat on eachother with, and the other person couldn't get mad.    Without going further into the episode, who's on your list? At least right now... until it changes with everybody else's posts (which is exactly why you don't laminate your list like Ross did!)   1. Bradley Cooper 2. Christian Bale 3. Carlos Bocanegra (former captain of the men's US soccer team) Spoiler (Highlight to read)       4. Hugh Jackman 5. Mike Rowe
Ok It's the end of the first full week of 2015.  I am counting my blessing, but I just need to vent a bit.   Feel free to vent about your week as well.     To the jerk0ffs who got in my car on Sunday night and stole things out of my car IN MY DRIVEWAY...I hope you enjoy the tire pressure gauge, the baby wipes, the hand sanitizer!  I hope you enjoy the WHOLE box of makeup I gathered for my little cousin Allie!  She just turned 15 and loves makeup the box you stole was for HER!  OH and the cup holder you stole to get the spare change out of the car will cost me over $200 to replace!  I hope you enjoy all the feces you stole from me.   To Hubster McSexy!  I HATE FORNICATIN' LIMA BEANS!!! HATE THEM!! You should know this after almost 2 decades of knowing me!  HATE 'EM!!!! HATE!!!!   To the head of my grad program.  I finished that class in OCTOBER why is the grade not posted!  I'm applying for graduation!  The incomplete on a class I COMPLETED makes me very nervous!  I contacted you a week ago, you still haven't submitted the grade!     To my UNIVERSITY finishing my MPA has been a 20yr journey!  Now you tell me I can only invite 4 people!  I want to share this with those I love.  C'mon!   To the Honor Society, why should I have to pay you over $100 to be a member and get that asterisk next to my name on the program at graduation?  WHY.  I earned that 4.00 GPA that asterisk shouldn't cost me $100 of my makeup $$$ ARSES!   To my Uncle R.M.A.  I know you loved me.  You were the first person to tell my I was beautiful and I believed you (parents have to tell you those things! LOL).  I feel this world is a less bright now that you are gone.  I know why you had to go, I know the pain was becoming unbearable.  Thank you for always dropping love and acceptance into my life in colorful doses. You have been my daddy's best friend since he was 5yrs old...the ying to his calm yang.  Thank you for helping him be the man and father he always strived to be.  Thank you for loving my mother and all her crazy.  LOL.  Thank you for loving me.  Rest In Peace old man.  <3   This week has worn me out ladies.  I'm still so grateful though.  I have a great life (far from perfect but great!)   Next week WILL be better! (I'm buying makeup/shoes!)  LOL   How was your week?

I popped into a local SiJCP yesterday (I don't go often because there is a freestanding Sephora in the same mall, but I wanted to look for LORAC products). While I was in there I noticed this little make your own favorites kit. I just wanted to share with you al!   You get the bag and you pick which products you'd like to put into it. (Edit: Not sure why this is sideways, sorry, it wasn't before.)   Here is a closer photo of the instructions.

Some people had asked and I wondered myself, so did some digging around.   Here is what I've discovered - For the different smileys, insert the following codes with a colon ( : ) before and after and the icon will appear - these are what I found available on BT: cathappy catindifferent catmad catsad catsurprised cattongue catvery-happy catwink catfrustrated catembarrassed catlol manhappy manindifferent manmad mansad mansurprised mantongue manvery-happy manwink manfrustrated manembarrassed manlol robothappy robotindifferent robotmad robotsad robotsurprised robottongue robotvery-happy robotwink robotfrustrated robotembarrassed robotlol smileyhappy smileyindifferent smileymad smileysad smileysurprised smileytongue smileyvery-happy smileywink smileyfrustrated smileyembarrassed smileylol heart womanhappy womanindifferent womanmad womansad womansurprised womantongue womanvery-happy womanwink womanfrustrated womanembarrassed womanlol   But with great power comes great responsibility - so don't go too smiley crazy now
So today, after thinking about it for months I made another Instagram account. One specifically for makeup (looks/product reviews etc). I was curious as to how many other BTers have makeup driven social media platforms & if they're going well. After the Instagram bit I may even "up grade" to making YouTube videos I feel like I'm more than capable I just don't know if people would watch them..  So to you BTers out there with successful Instagram & YouTube accounts - any advice for a rookie?  IG account --> @makeup.vixen

Hi. My name is Bombshell and I am an eye shadow-aholic. I love it. It makes me so happy. It is getting out of control. Upon counting only those palettes with 3+ shadows I have a total of 43. They each deserve love and attention. They all deserve their own 5 minutes (or days in the case) of fame. My Plan is this: One by one the Palattes shall parade through the open space on my vanity. Starting this Monday, each week I will use only one palette per work week (M-F) and cheat on the weekends. I will use them one by one until I have used them all for  5 day period. I will use them in alphabetical order. I have alphabetized my palettes and started with those that begin with #'s, lowest number to highest, and the A-Z. On Saturday and Sunday (depending on what CalamityJane comes up with) there might be a look or color of the day. In addition to the palette, single shadows and eyeliner may be used ( ) in addition to the weekly palette. All looks should mainly come from the palette of the week. This way I can be fair to all of my palettes & all of my older palettes that haven't quite gotten the appreciation they deserve will get some time in the sun. At the end of the week if I was successful I will write the date beside the palette on the list. If I can't get at least 5 days worth of looks from them it is likely time to put them in a TSB or give them to a friend that will love them.  I am hoping this will help me appreciate what I've got rather than constantly thinking I need something new. I am not promising not to buy any shadows in the almost year it will take me to complete this little journey. That is just not realistic.I will just have to use them on weekend cheat days.  I am hoping the experience will at least make me more grateful for all the wonderful things I have & save me some $! LOL This is about accountability. I invite any and all to join. Feel free to make up your own rules and reward system. Just post them here and I will support you in your efforts any way that I can. Not all of us will be able to follow the same rules but we can certainly all support one another!    Courtesy of Mafan--- New Rule* I f you absolutely DO NOT like a palette, you have the option of setting it aside for a TSB/give away and moving on to the next palette on your list. No sense in wearing make up you don't like for 5 whole days!Make up is supposed to make us happy.   Courtesy of JaimeLove--- New Rule* A holiday (including your birthday,anniversary or graduation) is an acceptable cheat day! (BRILLIANT)   My List Week 1: 4 Magic-Lancome   1/17/14 Not keeping, got bored by day 3 Week 2: 4 Passion-Lancome  1/24/14 Depotting one shade and passing on the rest, which are almost new!!!  Week 3: 10th Anniversary Palettes- Too Faced Quasi-keeper: keeping one blush, and 4 of the shadows.

I don't even need any responses to this, I just have to post and get my feelings out there tonight. Feeling overwhelmed and like I'm in over my head. My dad has been  hospitalized since mid-December and is now in rehab - broken ribs at 86 - just told today that he will probably be in rehab another 2 weeks and he is very unhappy and depressed because he is away from my mom. She is home and my brother and I are going back and forth taking her to the nursing home and doing grocery shopping, laundry, etc., but my parents have been maried 67 years and are not doing well being apart. I know many people have gone through this - being caregivers - so I shouldn't complain - but this is new to me and I'm really feeling like this is more than I can handle every day. Any suggestions from anyone who has been through this would be welcome. Or just someone telling me I will make it through this OK - thanking everyone in advance. Tough day!
So i just saw The Conjuring, and i must say, SCARIEST movie i have ever seen!  So i was wondering what the scariest movie you ladies have seen!? I'm not big into scary movies, being that i'm a huge scardy cat, but before i saw The Conjuring, Insidious was pretty scary to me! So what's your favorite scary movie??

I'm looking for a good new show to get into.   I always have my classic gilmore girls. I seriously watch it every single day and I've seen every episode like 6 times but it is my favorite show ever. It has just always been my favorite show.   Some of my favorites are.. Gilmore Girls Castle Amazing Race Modern Family One Tree Hill (so sad its over) Grey's Anatomy How I Met Your Mother (this is recent.. just started watching on netflix) Big Bang Theory... BAZINGA!   and some various others.. What are your favorites?? Especially ones that you LOVE to watch reruns of!

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!
