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?

Hi everyone!   Just wanted to share that after nearly 6 years working with Sephora I am saying my goodbye! I know many of you have messaged me, come to me for assistance and have become familiar faces but it is my time to move on!     Thank you for your great topics, advice and pictures you all so love to share! This has been so much fun getting to know you all and share your joys and woes! Thank you all for the heart parties and posts too.   As my PM's are now off, please reach out to Melissa, Zanna, Laura, Kevin, Nika or Randee if you have any issues or questions and I know they will be able to help!    I leave you with my favorite saying, "You can never have too much lipgloss."

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!    
Hey guys,   I'm putting together a gift baskets for my mom for mothers day. I'm not sure what all to include. Do you guys have any product recommendations?    Ya'll are always so helpful.  Thanks in advance!  
Hey everyone, I updated the list of successful traders. Please post here if you have a successful trade with someone.

I know we have a thread where we' talk about being healthier and such, and much like the challenges for makeup, this will be a challenge for exercise. Today I finally decided "Enough of this slugging around."      I just finished one mile  at a 3 mile speed and switching to 2.5 once in a while.    If you're starting this journey with me, please check out (I hope Malday doesn't mind me calling the thread this) - the sister thread. Here you will find healthy recipes, AND delicious as well. I'll be including some vegan/vegetarian recipes mainly.   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/The-Reci pe-Thread/m-p/1845978/highlight/true#M101081   So I won't title this 30 day challenge, but I will aim for 30 days and keep going from there, hopefully.   Here's an image of some stretches provided by the lovely ShannonAlexis:    
So I live with two roommates, one of which I don't know well. He's an international Chinese PHD student in computer science so we don't really hang out much but he just sent me some unexpected words when all I did was ask about lowering the thermostat. I posted the texts below--did my text even warrant that kind of attitude?   I'm a clean, communicative person and can't stand his habits of not recycling, not once helping with throwing out the garbage, not cleaning up after himself in the kitchen, not locking the door, and lack of communication with cranking up the heat but I been putting up with it and cleaning up after him because he's moving out this semester and the last time I tried to have an adult conversation with him, he got defensive/sarcastic and called me rude. My other roommate already told me he's a hard person to get along with but I still feel upset and angry that I have to live with someone like that for the next few months.

I am a book lover! I would rather read than do anything else! So just outta curiosity, What are you ladies (and gentleman)  reading? What's your favorite genre?     I just finished Blood Vivicani by Beckett  And I am starting a reread of The song of Ice and Fire (the game of thrones series)   My favorite genre by far is horror and Fantasy.

With so many of us tea drinkers I thought this could be a place for us to talk about teas. Make some suggestions. Ask for recommendations. Share recipes. Show off teaware. Lets discuss all things tea.

Some movies are hit or miss. What are your current favorites ?

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?

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?      
I have been away for a little while, and am starting to get back into the swing of things.It got me to thinking about why I like being here and what I missed! I love that we are a bunch of like-minded people, from all different walks of life but common things that draw us all together. I love that a person can come and go, but it always seems like coming back to a type of family that is always welcoming. I love that we can talk about our obsessions, ask questions, get advice, share our hoards and enable each other, or just talk about other random things. I love that the community is supportive of personal things going on, such as births, deaths, joys and trials.  I Love how we stick up for each other if any bad eggs come in and start trouble. I love the ideas and inspirations we get from the discussions and pictures.   It is just a fun place to be!   What are some of your favorite things about BT??

So besides spending money on makeup...  I have a rather large t-shirt collection.   ...and I just ordered another one. My husband and I love looking at the shirt designs on Woot every day. This one was a definite win. I ordered it right away. (Plus it was only $7 with $5 shipping.)

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?

I started thinking about this because this past week I've been having a lot of consternation with my vision.  I wear hard contacts and the pair I was wearing was 4-5 years old (they really are supposed to only last up to 2 years but I'm really bad at going in to the eye doctor) and basically they were so out of shape and scratched up that one lens ended up causing a tear in my eye.  It's a small tear so don't worry!  But I was out of commission from Friday till Wednesday.  I do have glasses which I wear but the lenses are ridiculously thick so I'm very embarrassed to wear them anywhere especially work.    Now that I finally got my new lenses and can see again I thought how amazing a thing it is to be able to see clearly.  I used to have to run to the bathroom all the time to rinse my contacts because my vision would get blurry.  Now I don't have to do that.  I can comfortably work all day.  I can't tell you how wonderful a feeling it is.   I think many of us don't take time out to really think about the simple things we are grateful for.  I know I don't.

1. A beauty/fashion trend you love. 2. A beauty/fashion trend you hope goes away soon. 3. How many pairs of shoes do you own? 4. A product you would love to own if money were no object. 5. Movie you can watch over and over again.   1. I like the accent nail trend, some people really go all out! 2. The short skirt/booty shorts with a long sheer overlay, I just don't get it. 3. About 20, most are gifts from my sister who tries desperately to make me more girly. 4. I want to see if La Mer cream is as amazing as all the stars claim. 5. The Princess Bride, my friends and I can quote it verbatim.
at all with this event...at least where i was at...I mean i spent 148.00 and with coupon it came to 119.00 (and still trying to figure out where that 119.00 is at in the items i bought)...   the fold over clutch has terrible samples in it...that nail polish color is a pea green color or maybe some other color..the buxom lipgloss is not a color for my dark skintone..why not throw in a mascara, some neutral eyeshadows...   the food was ok..nothing special...but when one is hungry anything tastes good..   had a contour done on me..only noticed it on my cheek area..   I don;t know I guess I expected more from this event..glad the coupon can be used many times over..so it comes in handy when i get paid again..
I recently discovered Glambot.com and I'm curious about peoples experiences with the site? Good/bad? Would you recommend it?
I have FINALLY decided i want to sign up for a subscription box. BUt i don't know which one!!

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.            2/25/15 - RIP Demi

For those of you who knew about my pregnancy... I gave birth today to a beautiful and healthy baby boy! Say hello to Byron Victor, born at 11:52 am March 5, 2015. He is 7 pounds, 6 ounces, 19.5 inches long. Both baby and myself are doing well.

Ladies, our dear BT community member mygreathair12 (Dan) is going through a difficult time right now.   He asked me to share with those who wanted to know that his biopsy yesterday discovered a bit more cancerous growth than anticipated, and also some white spots.  He is focussing on that right now, but asked me to reach out to those who had asked about him.   I really think Dan could use a big bunch of all our love and support right now as he goes through this difficult time.  I'm sure most of us have been touched in some way by cancer at one point or another, so you probably know how much any little bit of support can mean to someone.     Please pop in and leave some positive energy for Dan when you have a moment.   Dan, we're all thinking of you!!!  Stay strong!
I need some help finding a purse. I have been looking for something and I am not sure if it exists. Here are my wish list items: -structured, it doesn't have to be rigid, but I would like some structure to it -crossbody strap as well as shoulder handles -zip top -metal feet -not cloth -about 12 inches across -as many interior pockets as possible... -multiple sections would not make me sad -Priced up to $500   Anybody have a purse they love that meets all or most of these items? Any help would be fabulous! Thanks in advance!

I thought it would be fascinating to see how people looked at half their age. This lets everyone participate no matter what his or her age! We get to see neat hairstyles, clothing, interesting stages (Goth, etc.). Let’s have fun!   Here’s how to play: find a photo of yourself at about half your age. Then find a more recent one, perhaps one you’ve posted on BT showing a makeup look, or one you particularly like.   I’ll go first. Here’s a photo of me in the pre-digital-camera era, circa 1985. I couldn’t find any of this age that showed my face any closer. It’s a scan so is a bit grainy. Even back then (and when I was younger), I had smile wrinkles. LOL The recent photo is one from a WAYWT post.     Does anyone want to play?

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 !!!
