What's on your plate?
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?

Black Friday 2014 Anticipation / Information from 2013
List of Sephora Black Friday deals, courtesy of shapeshifter. These are the ones she is aware of for SIJCP. She and I communicated about her post of this information getting lost within this thread and making it easy for all of you to know what the deals are. So a zillion hearts for her.  I'll put the original thread information in a spoiler.    - 12oz Philosophy Purity made simple - Buxom set: Sulpted Lash Mascara and Hold the Line waterproof liner (black) - Too Faced set: Deluxe mini BTS mascara and original shadow insurance - Too Faced set: Deluxe mini Original Shadow Insurance and Champagne Shadow Insurance - Josie Maran set: mini Bare naked nail wipes and mini apricot hand cream - Bocia set: Deluxe size Black Mask and full size charcoal blotting papers - Bare Minerals set: Eyeshadow duo (not certain of colors, but looked like a plum and a goldish) with MMoxie lip gloss in Rebel - Smashbox set: travel size original face primer, full exposure mascara, high def concealer (sorry, don't know the color, but most likely whatever the midrange one is…) - First Aid Beauty set: 2oz cleanser and 2oz ultra repair cream - Make Up Forever set: 2 shimmery lip glosses, one pink, unsure of the colors, sorry. - Tarte set: mini lipgloss and mini blush in Magic, travel size Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara - CLEAN set of 4 mini roller balls - Sephora collection: set of two precision makeup sponges - Sephora collection: eyeshadow passport (not sure on colors, looked like nudes) - Pink Sugar: roller ball (I think full size) - Juicy Couture: double ended roller ball (not totally sure what scents) - Perricone MD: travel sized Face Finishing Moisturizer .5oz - Ole Henriksen set: travel size african red tea foam cleanser and travel size brightening cleansing cloths - Kat Von D set: mini lip duo with a studded kiss in Lolita and an everlasting liquid lipstick in Berlin - Peter Thomas Roth: FirmX peeling gel exfoliant. It looked like 1oz size. - Bite Beauty set: 3 mini lush fruit lip glosses in Rambutan, Strawberry and Currant in a zip bag.   From Snapchat/Sephorasnaps:   Updated with Day 2 Photo.                   Determination of when the online sales will go live: - This is still a great mystery. 12 am EST according to someone who made a mental note of it last year but so far, no official word for this year. Would love for a mod to help us out on this one.   Determination of store hours for Black Friday: -From what I've gathered, and folks, please chime in - Black Friday hours are location specific and dependent on a number of factors. If your free-standing Sephora is inside a mall, they will likely match the opening hours for that mall. At my local mall, stores opened at midnight, and so then, did Sephora. At my SIJCP, hours were based on when Penny's opened. For Sephora's that are not in a mall, or Penny's, they will like go with whatever time that "plaza" is going to open. I called my two favorite Sephora's in Arizona. I don't live there, but when I'm there, they are the ones I go to. The one on 15169 N Scottsdale Rd is going to open at 8 am. The one in Fashion Square mall is going to open at 6 am. But here is the BEST news. For the free standing Sephora's, it looks like Black Friday hours are posted for most stores, on the locations page of sephora.com. For fun, I pulled up the stores with a 90210 zip code:

.Show us your unicorns!!!!
with all the limited edition items that are released and the shark frenzies that follow, I'm interested in seeing what items my fellow BTers have snagged over the years that are now those coveted hard to find unicorns.  Those beautiful things we wanted but missed out on.   Basically, I want to see pictures of those Beauties I cannot have, just like I wznna see pictures of those hunky men in harlequin romance novels I can never have.   Running to grab a box of tissues and some popcorn!   Oh and as a sneak preview, here's my first self-deemed unicorn.  This picture is from the Omotesando cosmetic boutique.  The blusher in the middle is the real unicorn.  It was only available at this one store location to celebrate its opening.  I went in to snag one for someone else and they were sold out.  See the sold out sticker?   They sold out in a week and STILL had the darn set on display one month later!!!  Why????

No-buy-vember
While I patiently wait for my four VIBR sale orders to arrive I have decided to man up (lady up?) and ban myself from purchasing anything not gift related until Black Friday. I do most of my Sephora shopping during these last few months of the year but even this time I went a little crazy.   Anyone else putting off buying cosmetics/skincare/stuff in general until Black Friday or beyond? Cause if I don't I'm headed for this (minus the atrocious spelling error):     (Ha, not really.. but maybe..)

the small things of life
Feeling under the weather, lucky to still be able to go to my mom and get pampered. As I was laying on her bed I could hear her doing her nightime skin routine. The products she bought on the 20 percent  sale. The fab skincare set and claudiale beauty elixir. It made me smile and felt happy for her. She is really liking this set. I asked her if she noticed a change in skin and she said it looks like she has.    I just wanted to share a little moment that one not might think too much about but sometimes you realize its little moments that often have a big impact in your life.

Would you consider this palette hoarding?
I was at a friends last night and we ended up watching episode after episode of hoarders which was shocking and frightening at the same time.  Today I read a comment asking to see my makeup collection so I pulled out my palettes out of their respective drawers for a photo and realized I have more than I thought. Also I realized how anxious I was about my hubby coming up and seeing how many I own. needless to say, they went back very quickly!  I'm wondering if this is too many or if I'm just sitting pretty. I do use them all save for the nars ones.  how many palettes do you own? do you use them all?

My new kitty
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.

Subscription box photo sharing
I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

Post your peeves here!
I got cut ahead of in the grocery line (again!) today, and while I was fuming, got to thinking of what bad behaviors of people really get me going.  Feel free to add your favorite pet peeves.   No particular order 1- People who cut ahead of you in line, especially when you've been waiting awhile, or you are running late and don't need to be later. 2- People who go through the express 10 items or less lane with a half cart full of stuff. Taking forever to check out due to trying to use expired coupons or coupons for stuff they didn't purchase gets my goat too. 3-People who act like they know it all (extra credit to those horses-patooties who really don't know but act like they do!) 4-Pests who take up the only 2 parking spaces by parking in both with their car, right near the store on a rainy day so I have to walk a huge distance and get soaked.   Going to end now to give everyone else a chance!

Lime Crime's crimes
I just discovered that what goes on at Lime Crime's office is horrible. I read multiple blog posts and this is what I found   In the past, Xenia, the owner, bought pure mica from TKB and sold it as her own 'handmade' eye shadow at a higher price. Most of her stuff in the beginning was repackaged products from other companies.    She calls her company vegan, but includes beeswax and carmine in her lipsticks...... Her ingredient list is  always  changing.    If she sees a bad review of her products, she either threatens to sue the blogger reviewing her products because to her, it's considered "defamation" OR, she sends an email to her fans called futurettes to go on to the blogger's site and talk about how amazing her products are. She can't accept the fact that her lipsticks just don't work for some people. That's the thing that I hate about Xenia and her company. She threatens to sue! She is very unethical, unprofessional, and has no morals.   Another outrageous thing she did was she made a blogger delete her bad review of LC lipsticks and post up scripted apology! TWICE! It was either lie about your review or get sued! This is why you shouldn't support Lime Crime, because the company is so horrible and manipulative!   If you googled "lime crime scandal" a ton of blogs will show you the truth behind her company.    Sorry I've been ranting about brands so much. heh

Brands & Products You Love but Don't Have ?
i intend for this thread to be both a bit of a 'release' (such as "i want everyone to know i love *this* even though my hauls, looks, etc don't reflect it !")   but i also intend it to be a kind of ongoing list we can reference for the (or any) sale, for general shopping, and as inspiration of new things to try.   for example: i love REN. but my skincare collection does not reflect my love for them. my shopping cart is full of parts of their v-cense line and ren rosa centifolia balm, but i never pull the trigger (i've had some of these things but are sometimes pricey for me to replace once i run out, or i try new things, etc). same with NUDE and ALGENIST. some KATE SOMERVILLE too (goats milk cream, anyone?) !   i love NARS pure matte lipsticks but instead of restocking i went for the audacious lipsticks. which we all know i love, but they're just *different*.    edited to add: BECCA products like the shimmering skin perfector (liquid form) in pearl, and their eye tints intrigue me for those no makeup makeup looks.  NARS light reflecting loose setting powder.   what about you ?
