Hidding my stash (hauls)
With all the sales going on and holiday sets and limited edition products, and new items, I've been doing alot of purchases lately. Think I've gone a little overboard. Hey you gotta get them when they are in stock otherwise they go out of stock... for ever!   Any how I find myself hidding my purchases and receipts. Not because I don't have enough money for my purchases, I budget well, but because I have too much already.    Tell me do you do the same?  Where do you hide your newly bought treasures?

Outstanding October Hauls!!
It's midnight in New York and you know what that means... it's October!! I don't care if I'm in California, I'm still making this post hahaha.    I started my haul at CVS because my sister had $10 rewards for beauty and I used that towards lipsticks for my kit.    I got Wet n Wild lipsticks in Sugar Plum Fairy, Wine Room, and Mauve Outta Here. I also got a Milani lipstick in High Voltage. I paid $2 for 4 lipsticks!   I went to Ulta to pick up NYX Dark Circle Corrector and the Essence Lipstick (4th one above) in Wear Berries   THEN, I went to Sephora to pick up a free deluxe sample of Bare Minerals lipstick in Speak Your Mind and my MUFE Birthday gift!     PS my birthday is October 18 hehe

I need help for choosing good sheets for my bedding set!
I figured someone here hopefully is savvy and up to date with what's the best on the market right now. As you can see my comforter is going to be pretty toasty. I'm not much of a fan of designs as I get bored of them quickly, so it's a simple set. It's a soft velvet on one side and reverses to a faux-fur. I'm looking for some sheets that are comfortable, cool, and durable, to go under it. What do you guys suggest?

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.

Addicted to buying makeup, HELP !
I LOVE beauty products and sadly I also LOVE shopping which leads to countless makeup purchases on a weekly basis. I have a lot of makeup already and I certainly do not need more. I'm sure I am not the only one with this problem but if anyone can help me, I would appreciate.    Do you have any tips on reducing your impulse purchases ? or just stop buying so much makeup all the time?

Me at Half My Age – Please play along!
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?

What scares you?
With Halloween almost here, what scares you? Or do you have a phobia? Have you done or attempted anything to overcome your fear?   I have bathmophobia (fear of stairs). I have no problem at the bottom but looking down from the top is another story. Also related is escalaphobia (fear of escalators) which is even worse because it's moving stairs. I don't know where this fear came from but I read that if you have some weird fear (my mom is terrified of being buried alive), it's because that's how you died in a past life.

I'm applying to work at MAC!
I went to the mall on Saturday when my parents and siblings were in town for Family Weekend and I stopped by the MAC counter to look around and see if anything tickled my fancy. My parents gave me some birthday money and I was like, "Hey, why not?" So the girl who was helping me was asking me questions about what am I used to wearing when I wear makeup, if I'm open to anything etc, and I told her what I usually wear and I'm open to anything. So she made some recommendations but I wasn't really feeling them at the moment and I had a few things on my mind that I wanted.    So she grabbed what I wanted and she goes to the register to ring me up but one register was broken and there was a line of people already waiting to pay at the other.  So while I was waiting, I asked the girl who helped me if they were taking any applicants and she said that they are and they're always looking for new freelance artists. One of their permanent artists just had her baby and now there's only 4 including the manager.     She introduced me to her manager and the woman was very skeptical about my skills because I wasn't wearing any makeup. I showed her a few pics of myself and people I've done and letting her know what I used and converted them into MAC terms/colors. She also quizzed me on the history of MAC, their various programs, etc which I answered correctly. She was also surprised when I told her my age and that I would appeal more to the younger portion of their consumer base. She asked for my phone number and my email to stay in touch, and told me that when I come back this coming Saturday to bring my resume, a model, and to wear all black.   I'm so excited and nervous!

Favorite things about the holidays!
What are your favorite things to do, eat, drink, or just enjoy around the holiday season?   This might sound weird, but I just like walking outside and inhaling the crisp, cold air. I also like being bundled up in my bed with 2 blankets.    One thing I like eating is pho (Vietnamese noodle soup). My mom makes THE BEST. I love eating it during the winter because it just warms you up inside.   But my absolute favorite things are these gifs

Hair horror stories
With Halloween creeping closer, let's talk about our worst hair horror stories! Bad hair cut? Terrible color choice? Tell me your stories that make you look back and go "what was I thinking!?"    My number 1 hair horror story:  I was in 6th grade with lovely hair that was almost to my waist. I decided that I wanted a hair cut and started begging my parents. My Mom agreed to take me to a salon the following weekend... but like any brat, I wanted it NOW. I kept complaining and my dad said "I can cut your hair."    I was like "Ok! Do it." So I sat down on a stool and he chopped off my pony tail. I now had a very jagged and horrible shoulder length cut. Needless to say, I learned my lesson. A neighbor that used to be a hairdresser attempted to even it out for us, but it looked pretty terrible for a while.

Is There Anything You Wished You Could Change In Your Appearance?
Beauties,      I know we're a community of self acceptance and loving yourself just the way you are, but I'm curious, is there anything about your appearance you wish could be different?   To start us off, I'll tell you mine.     Though I am completely comfortable/happy with myself, when I was younger my closest girlfriend was ginger, and I lusted after having pale skin, freckles and auburn hair just like her.  I did rock various red hair colors for many years, but never found one that suited me and have given up on that for now.     These days, I mostly just wish I could be taller.  I'm pushing 5'4 and my husband is 6'4 and I would love to be a bit closer to his size.  On my off time I wear giant heels to compensate.  And if we're wishing for things, I'd love to have b**bs the size I had when I was 40lbs heavier, lol.   What about you?

Want some new jewelry!
Hey guys! So I know this is a little off topic and I hope its okay to post this here, but I turn to all of you when I need answers, so I have another question! I'm looking to add a few new pieces of jewelry to my collection, but I don't know what brands I should look at, or at least start with. I have pieces ranging from costume jewelry to fine jewelry. I'd like to stick to a few higher quality pieces. I like lines such as Tiffany & Co. and David Yurman if I'm looking at fine jewelry. I like a really "timeless" look, so I hope you know what I mean! Any and all suggestions are welcomed! Thanks!!

Everybody has something that they love on their body.  Come share it!   For me it's my butt and my lips.     I have a big butt and I'm psyched about it. I don't really know why I like it so much, it's too big to be a socially acceptable big butt, but I still think it's awesome.   And my lips are perfectly shaped and luckily the little lines I got around them from smoking are softening out because of Fresh's lip serum.

Heartbreaking article...felt the need to post
I just stumbled on the most heartbreaking article entitled "An Ugly Woman's Honest and Painful Response to Being Mistreated Goes Viral". The photo that accompanied it spoke very strongly to me.     The article links to the original post by a Reddit user describing what should have been a great night out with friends that I've included in the spoiler. These are not my words, but I totally understand how this woman feels. All of us at one time or another have had these feelings or encounters like this. As a relative newcomer to this beauty board I've experienced great interactions with other BT community members and seen mostly positive interactions. I'm posting this with the hope that in reading this individuals will be encouraged to pay it forward or step out of their comfort zone in regards to their own beauty or perception of beauty. Stop someone on the street and say something nice, volunteer at a women's shelter or donate to a cause that helps/empowers women. Share your own stories within this thread and find support. This article really moved me and I just felt compelled to share it.   Spoiler (Highlight to read) "Warning: wall of text ahead I am an ugly woman. Objectively, I really am. Please don't argue with me on this one, Reddit. I am not overweight, actually in better shape than most women my age, I dress well, I am great with makeup. But last weekend the world just had to remind me that despite all this, people will go out of their way to kick me. I don't often go clubbing, but Saturday night was a special occasion. A friend was celebrating her 21st, and it was also the weekend after a long week of brutal exams. It felt like a good time to blow off some steam. Because I don't often go clubbing, I really tried this night to look nice. There was an outfit that I had bought a long time ago, but that I'd never worn because it was a little sexier than what I usually wear. A close friend had picked it out for me when we were shopping, and, in that "you go girl" kind of way had urged me to buy it. I did my makeup painstakingly, straightened my hair which always takes forever because my hair is huge, put on that too-sexy-for-me outfit. And when I looked in the mirror I was even surprised at myself. "Wow, is that me? I actually look...nice!" I showed my friends. They all said I looked great. And they MEANT it too. Like, genuine happy encouragement. I could tell they were sincere and it made me feel so good, like for once I wasn't just masquerading as an attractive girl with fancy makeup and clothes, but that I WAS the attractive girl. I hadn't felt so attractive in ages, Reddit. When we got to the club, we got a nasty surprise. We had been told that tonight there was no cover charge for girls, and so none of us had brought much cash on our person. Well, our info was wrong. They did indeed ask for a cover. Only one of us 6 girls had cash, and she only had enough to cover two people. When we got to the door and found this out, a group of guys behind us volunteered to help us out. They each forked over a couple of bucks to cover my friends, but not one of them offered to cover me. One by one my friends were let in and they waited on the other side of the door until everyone got through. The guys were doing everything to avoid eye contact with me. They were looking at the ground, the street, pretending to look through their wallets for cash to cover one more girl. It was so painfully obvious that I felt like just going home. Luckily, my friend with the extra cash covered me so I was allowed in. Well, once we were inside I thought I could just forget about that incident. I had dressed up and come out, to have a good time and relax. So for a while I danced with my friends. It wasn't long before other guys started dancing with us. We kind of paired off slowly, there was a guy whose two buddies had started dancing with other girls and he was left alone. At that point I too had lost track of my friends and was alone. He started dancing with me, but the whole time he seemed really distracted. Not once did he really look at my face, he was kinda looking around the club the whole time, like he was browsing the scene for another, more attractive girl he could bounce to. In less than 10 minutes, he had seen one. He peaced out without a word, and I saw him dancing a few minutes later with a very attractive brunette. The way he acted with her was just SO different than when he had danced with me. He was face to face with her, smiling, dancing enthusiastically. That made my stomach drop. I went to the bar, found one of my friends who was sitting there with a guy. She introduced us, he bought everyone drinks. After a while I felt like a bit of a third wheel so I went back to the dance floor. Eventually my group of girls regathered together. Everyone had a guy, except for one of them who had a bf at home. So I danced with her, with our friends and their guys near us. There was a photographer going around the club, taking pictures of the people there. I assume it was for some promo for their website or something. He got to our group, and literally circled us several times, taking several pics from different angles. I was kind of psyched about this, so I did my best to look like I was having a good time, made sure he could snap me at my best. But after a while I realized he wasn't circling us to get our best angles. He was trying to get a frame without ME. If I moved closer to the center of the group, for instance, he would tilt his camera a little the other way. I couldn't believe it until finally, he actually came up to me and asked me to get out of the shot. I felt so ugly right then. For all the effort I had put into looking and feeling good that night, it seemed like it just didn't matter. So the night ends with me leaving the club. My friend with the bf at home who was dancing with me left with me so I wouldn't be alone. The rest of my girl friends didn't notice what had happened with the photographer, so when they asked me where I was going I just told them I was tired and wanted to go home. And since I wasn't leaving alone, they let me. So yeah, that's my story from the weekend. Please be kinder to ugly people, Reddit. Maybe one of the people I met that night will read this post and recognize themselves. I hope so, if only so they can know how behavior they're barely conscious of can affect someone else. EDIT: I have always been a lurker on Reddit so I'm not sure if I can find out who gave me gold. But thank you, stranger! I will enjoy this gold while it lasts.

What Was Your Most Embarrassing Beauty Look?
The sands of time are ever passing, and as they do, sometimes the looks that were prolific or popular at the time become horrifying in hindsight.   Whether you rocked frosted hair in the 70's, powder blue eyeshadow in the 80's, or brick brown lipstick in the 90's, or anywhere between or beyond, what makeup look do you look back on now and cringe over?   To get the ball rolling, I will offer up my own horror story.     I was raised by my dad, so I didn't really have many women around to teach me about makeup.  In middle school I used to drastically over tweeze my eyebrows for that Sailor Moon look.  I had grad and confirmation coming up and had to get pictures taken, so I decided it would be a good idea to draw my eyebrows in for the pictures.  I didn't know any better, so I colored  them in  with a black eyeliner .  Every time I see those pictures, it looks like someone came along with a sharpie and just wiped it across my face.  Also, I didn't understand arching, so they are literally two stick straight lines on my face.   If I can dig it up, I will post a pic for all to see and have a good laugh over.     Now it's your turn... what was your greatest makeup blunder?

You're bringing me back with talks of Bourjois and Max Factor, I'm STILL sad those two brands aren't in the US anymore. :( see post

New Trans-Canadian Cosmetics Travelling Box/Train!!
Toot toot! Round three of the Trans-Canadian travelling cosmetics train is now *closed* *Update*   Here is the new train order! A couple of stations are friends of mine, I will be passing on their addresses to the people sending to them. Please PM the person sending to you *now* with your full name and address. If you don't have an address by Monday please contact me.  If I have missed somebody on the train please contact me asap     That said, Toot toot! All aboard, here we go!   Ont: 1)      Bcteagirl 2)      Ivyxox: Passed on to Ivy, August 21st 3)      Poornima: Arrived August 24th left August 27th 4)      LovingLondon: Arrived September 2nd, send on September 8th:   Tracking #: 0059382000696770   QC: 5) HappyGen: Arrived september 10th   Sask: 6) Gayle (friend): Arrived September 24th   BC: 7) Heartsmyface 8) Deesa (friend): Departed here on October 9th! 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!

What are you reading ?
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.
