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:
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. After the storm calms: Both taken by me.
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!
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?
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.
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!
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.)
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.
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 know Lime Crime are currently talk of the town with their "recent" (it happened months ago and no one was told...) security breach on their website, but what do you think about them making an appearance at the NYC IMATS? They're (apparetly) not appearing at the LA event, I'm not sure if that was due to them being turned away or simply just not attending. So, do you think they should be allowed to attend NYC IMATS after more of the companies/owners shady business practices and lack of customer compassion have come to light? There is actually a petition to have them banned from the NYC dates here incase you feel strongly about the matter: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/boycottlimecrim e-at-imats-nyc
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
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 !!!
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
I don't know if you ladies have heard, but LimeCrime is in a lot of trouble over recent events. This is a brief overview from what I've read. From October 4, 2014 through February 15, thousands of LimeCrime customers had their identity/social security number/CC number stolen and unauthorized charges from hundreds to tens of thousands of dollars because of a breach due to Doe/Xenia's failure to renew their server security. There is a class action lawsuit against the brand, popular MUAs are breaking ties, people are throwing any product they have away, there is an online petition for IMATS to drop them for IMATS NYC, etc. One girl ordered Cashmere and she has a charge of $10K+ on her card, her credit tanked and can't take out loans to go to grad school now. Doe/Xenia is trying to cover this up by blocking, insulting, and ignoring as many people as she can on her social media platforms and customer service. It took her 2 weeks after before she acknowledged the issue and sent out notifications to customers. One indie brand I follow, I Love Nail Polish, has the same server/security provider as LimeCrime and also had a breach at the same time. But they handled it a lot better. Barbra, the CEO of ILNP, sent letters and emails immediately informing customers of the breach and rectified the situation quickly. I'm actually happy that I didn't buy anything from LC and that they're going down the drain.I can't believe I wanted to try the Velvetines! I'll never support a dishonest, shady brand who is horrible to their customers. People are starting to put together LC dupes/alternatives for those who wanted certain products from them .What do you ladies think of this?
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.
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?
So I have a bunch of palletes and misc makeup that I have only ever swatched (mainly eye shadows) that I wanted to sell cheap. Ebay of course will not let you sell used makeup, although I suppose I could label it a tester. Anyways most of it I just got slack about returning, we were moving house and etc and I just could not be bothered, and it now just sits in my makeup drawer serving no one. Examples: Too Faced holiday palette (sugar and spice?) UD Vice 2, the Clinique Nutrcracker collection, a whole range of UD moondust eyeshadows. The list goes on lol. I have had to switch to mostly all natural stuff anyways, because I was having reactions to a lot of the stuff as well. I have MS and weird things seem to make it flair up. (Which makes no sense) Any ideas?
Hi all! So totally random, but I wanted to vent a little and give everyone a platform to vent as well I think that letting out your feelings is a healthy way to grow and move past the stuff that is bothering you, whether it is a big deal or something small that just gets under your skin. Here are a few things bugging me this week... 1. Office politics, while I am currently free of this issue on a personal level, I see it all around me. People who use their power and/or connections to mess up other people who work hard and deserve better; it's usually out of jealousy or some insecurity. So sad that we deal with this as a adults on such an immature level. 2. Calling Kaiser customer service; I have called them about 8 times now and every time I wait about 7 minutes (to an annoying repetitive message), then they tell me to hang up and try again because the call volume is too high. I understand that customer service numbers can be notorious for sucking at the very purpose they serve, but to hang up on me every time and not give me a chance to speak to someone is upsetting. The doctor found a tiny round ball in my breast and I need to call about the cost of an ultrasound under my coverage, so I'm even more upset. I have a packed schedule so I don't have the luxury of walking into Kaiser and finding someone to help me. I guess I will have to wait another month before getting my info 3. Lastly, my daily 2 hour and 15 minute commute to work. Boy I'm tired, I wake up when it's still dark and almost never get home while it's still light out. I am extremely lucky to work at a great company, with a great boss, in the heart of San Francisco...but I'm exhausted every day. My lease ends in 4 months, so this torture is temporary. Thank you for letting me put my mess out there! I feel a lot better. Feel free to vent your frustrations!
I have a tremendous amount of samples and have been trying to use them as much as possible --some days I'm more successful than other days. Since I'm on a low-buy, I’m planning on posting the samples that I use on a daily basis and try to really incorporate as many as I can into my daily routine. This will encourage me to make a serious dent in my huge stash of samples and challenge me to keep using as many as I can each day. Who’s with me?

I've been eyeing several Ren products and picked up the Keep Young and Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot. I've used other Ren products and have been happy with the brand so I hope I'm happy with this too. I have one question. I have one more certificate to redeem so I was on the website looking around and the Ren product I purchased yesterday does not show up anymore. Do they usually remove products from their site if OOS or just have it say OOS when you click on the item? This concerned me as this is my first time purchasing from this company and am hoping my order won't be cancelled. Any info is appreciated. Thanks! And let us BTer's know what you picked up with your voucher!
What a depressing two days we have had. First, the untimely death of the great Robin Williams yesterday. And now, today, the beautiful Lauren Bacall. She was not only a gorgeous, talented woman, she was also a devoted wife to Humphrey Bogart and mother to his children. We lost another great one today, and although she will now be reunited with her Bogey, she's going to be missed forever by the ones she left behind. Rest in peace beautiful Betty.
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?
