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?
Time for another game! It's been too long since our last one. I've wondered how BT decides which 9 people (one is always myself) to show me are online at the moment. I thought it would be fun (we all know the fun is in off topic) to show who our 9 are when we happen upon this post. Of 19,091 users logged in, BT is showing me the following. I think I know all of them, so that's neat. I did not look them up (should have), but I see sister13, Blushhoarder, Bea0t, Loving London, Sddenm, kso1225, rjmalt, zpsid91 (did look at hers since it is a general avatar), and eaidlade. Who do you see? The more people who play along, the neater it will be to see how long it takes to see yourself again. Does anyone see me or any of the ladies in my list? How many do you recognize? Does BT actually pick people you may know or is it completely random? My girl, Maria, just jumped out to take the sole lead with 7entries.

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. ETA: Where to shop! So I do have a list/link somewhere with brands and where they are found. I'll try and dig it out and if you want it pm me For those who don't know... Shoppers Drug Mart and Murale have a wonderful loyalty program and your points are worth "cash" in store. The Bay is bringing in more brands... just recently Burberry. I'm thinking we will see more good things come. They also have a VIP program... I am not too sure how it all works but it applies to all purchases from the store and you get a 20$ off 100$ makeup purchase coupon almost every month... Like who wouldn't want that! Hello MAC! Beautylish ships to Canada and they are FAST! Order processed and shipped within the hour and arrives the next day! Now that we have Nordies in Canada you might be able to call a counter and get items shipped to you. Some things you can get shipped from the site. Apparently Saks is coming. I believe The Bay is the one who will be owning them and bring them in. If you get a good SA at Holts you can also get stuff shipped to you. Sorry been MIA from this board a long time.
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 love my fellow deal finders, but Nancy is one of my favorites. Her thoughtful emails always make me smile. She is extremely friendly and supportive. Well, all of her helpfulness and sharing has brought her to 1000 hearts. If you love her as much as I do, drop in and tell her. Nancy is a wonderful addition to BT, and I am happy I met her here.
So, I'm a single lady but recently I experienced heaven when my eyesight came across the most handsome guy I've seen that looks like he could be Lee Pace brother. Sigh. So cute. Anyway. We're not in the same department but I recently found out his name through a friend. She knows about it, oh and she has come to be one of my best work friends. So the drama comes in where there's a new girl that is just starting with us, I'm still new but as you all know, I've already had a month or so of experience and she's fresh out of training. Anyway I made the mistake of telling her about him and now she's obsessed. I'm sure I'm just being paranoid but since I don't have the confidence most women have, I feel like somehow she could woo him. And not to have a high ego but I am pretty, I am nice, etc but I still worry. Anyways, didn't necessarily write this for advice, just to vent it out. Not many people are happy with her behavior and she's new.. so that kind of sucks for her.
I've already PMed a couple of BTers who live in NYC, but I figured I'd ask everyone for advice on what I simply should not miss during my upcoming trip. My friend and I will be staying in Brooklyn for five days in August, and we're looking to experience more local haunts as opposed to places most tourists frequent (I lived in New York for half of my life, so I've done the Times Square / Natural History / Statue of Liberty thing many, many times). I want to walk the Brooklyn Bridge and my friend wants to spend time in Central Park, but other than that, we really want to find some hidden gems: places to eat, waste time, listen to good music, and shop. So, NYC locals, what do you suggest?
Only you, my people, will understand without judging me LOL. I have been stalking EBay for the past two years trying to snag a long discontinued scent from Aveda called Love. A seller had like 5-6 sets of oil and a soap up for auction this week. Their family used to work for Aveda and they stocked up on all their favorites before the company sold. Anyway, I had bids on two of them and just logged on for the end of the auction. Well I missed it by a half hour. I somehow got the time wrong. And they all sold for very reasonable prices. I know this sounds nuts, but I almost cried. I was so, so sure today would be the day I could reclaim my long lost HG scent. Just needed to vent, I know some of you will totally understand my frustration. Back to stalking ebay. Pray for me LOL. I emailed the seller asking if they have more to sell. Fingers crossed!!
Hi! I was wondering what everyone's favorite TV shows are. No particular reason, I am just curious and maybe want to find my next series to start. My favorite right now is Game of Thrones, and I love the Good Wife, but I'm still on the first season (watching on Amazon Prime.) My favorite of all time is Dexter, with Breaking Bad a close second. Does anybody else watch these?
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'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:
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
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.
Muahaha just kidding But now that I have your attention, I'm here to let you all know that today is my last day at Sephora..
It's been a fun 5 years, (2 of them I've spent here with you guys.) but the time has come to try new things and keep growing. I've really enjoyed my time here and I'll miss you guys! You've kept the job... interesting. haha Just kidding, you know I love you. If another guy replaces me you have to promise me you'll give him a hard time until he proves himself worthy. ←～（o ｀▽´ )oΨ
Thank you for the heart parties and thank you for the warm welcome when I first started, I'll never forget it!! I was super nervous but you guys welcomed me with open arms and I felt comfortable right away.
Maybe we'll meet again someday!!!!
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

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?

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.

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??
we've been suffering from a heart party drought around here so what better excuse to get some partying happening than to welcome two of our newest mods to the BT family! We know it must be so much work keeping all of us beauty heathens appeased, informed and heard. We love what you do! You make our world go round! Heres some heart shaped meats and cheeses and veggies for the table! And what party is complete without pizza faces?
I was just laying here surfing the web and I started thinking about cartoon characters (Random I know). I have alot I really like; Rugrats, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Rocco's Modern Life. But my favorite characters are from Ahh Real Monsters! Oblina looks like a black and white candycane with red lipstick, Ickus is just adorable with those big ears, I LOVE The Gromble because he was a male character wearing awesome red heels, and Krumm.....well being able to hold your eyes seems like a pretty cool thing to be able to do. These shows were all popular when my kids were young so that probably has alot to do with my fondness of them......great memories. Who is/are your favorite characters(s) or what's your favorite cartoon and why?
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."
Hey everyone, do any of you wanna talk about the IMATS TO show? I have never been to it and was planning in attending this year. I looked at the other cities that hold the tradeshow like LA and NY, they have way more fun exhibitors than TO ABH, Too Faced, DOC, UB, Stila, no ones going to the Toronto show. I feel like it doesnt even seem worth going (Its an 8 hour drive for me, plus hotel $$)! What is everyone else thinking? Im not sure on going, I feel like id just go to Sephora and buy everything.... thanks!
