*ranting session.    So I'm getting tired of the SA who are shocked I have >1000 points and I don't want to redeem them. Once or twice I get....but its most consistently EVERYTIME! Maybe because  of this forum I have a different view but I'm pretty sure a lot of people have WAAAAAY more points. Why is so shocking to the SA? Are we rare point hoarders? ( i don't think I have as many points compared to the 5k plus club girls!!)   Especially with the 4x...3x points event coming up....I didn't think we were unicorns!   *End rant

Most beauty products make some type of claim to lure us in.... long lashes, no pores, skin as radiant and soft as a newborn. Every so often, a company will make a claim that is just outrageous.  What outrageous beauty claims have you seen? Did you try the product? If so, did it live up to its claim?   Here's what showed up in my inbox today:

Someone posted a cute tote bag which I believe is sold at Sephora (may be a GWP or something).     That got me to thinking...hmmm I wonder if Sephora will branch out into other makeup related things?   Even if it was only available at their largest stores and (or) online it would be so fun to be able to purchase stuff that is makeup oriented but NOT makeup.   Feel free to add your ideas   I love a good tote bag (I know others hate them) I would love to have them in cute colors with makeup related sayings.  Maybe even with coordinating makeup bags.   Makeup related t-shirt/sweat shirt.  PJ sets   SHOES.  I would LOVE for them to do a collab with TOMS or KEDS or even Nike!   Tervis cups ( or coffee mugs, margarita glasses etc), OHMERGAWD I collect those things.   Cute storage units, think Alex drawers but in fun bright colors!      Candle holders or picture frames with makeup items stamped on them or ones that look like makeup items.   So what are some items you would love to see?

My dad just got back from a business trip in France and obviously my mother and I made a list of France-exclusive products that we wanted to get.   The only downside is that when my dad gave the SA our list (which was individual product page print outs from the Sephora FR website) she mistakenly gave him a Chanel Allure Deodorant instead of the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle deodorant. Which we obviously can no longer return. And of course my dad didn't think to double check the list because how hard can it be to read and look at the picture and give him the correct product?   But he did get everything else on the list and I'm really happy with my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle France-exclusive products like the Hair Mist and the Body Mist. The body mist smells soooo nice!! And my mom is super happy with her YSL Rive Gauche and her Chanel stuff.   And the amount of samples he came home with was insane!! He got 4 deluxe samples and they were huge!! And he also got 10+ perfume samples. All of this he got at checkout without even having to ask (and he didn't even know you could ask for samples). They even threw in a Guerlain laptop/ipad protective cover/bag (at least I think that's what it is). I was really really impressed that they gave him all those samples. When I spend the same amount of money here I have to practically beg them for a sample with my purchase (and I only get one) and in France they're giving them out like candy.   Next time he goes back to France for business I will get my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Deodorant.

Spoiler (Highlight to read) Why are there gender norms? I mean, why can't it just be accepted by society that men and women are equal? Women can wear pants, boys can wear dresses, women can have short hair, men can wear makeup. And you can do these things while not being transgender because gender doesn't define you. Thanks.

Just called around to all the SiJCP and Sephora stores to try to find the MUFE Pro Finish powder for my sister.  Everyone is out of stock, including online, of 110 Pink Porcelain.  Is there a particular reason why?  I know not all of us are that fair skinned.

Do pick up Nora Ephron's essay " I feel bad about my neck".  The first chapter alone is worth the few dollars spent on a used version from Amazon.  Planning to pick up a few more of her books for this summer at the beach.  Let me know how you like it.  The chapter on skin cream could be a BT thread.  ; )

You’ve no doubt heard the annoying “ding” sound when you forget to buckle your seat belt. Well GM is taking things to a whole new level with its “Teen Driver” feature which is set to debut in the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu. Parents can program the car to give visual or audible warnings when their teens exceed preset speed limits. The system will also turn off the radio and any connected devices until the driver and any passengers are buckled up. Finally the system will provide the parents with a report card of sorts mentioning any red flags like excessive speeds and instances where the antilock brakes were engaged. We can just imagine the eye rolling and groaning already.

Just a friendly reminder to those engaging in trades on BT to obtain the best results, always keep the following in mind:   1) If you are unsure of the condition of the items you want to trade for, always ask for a photo first to avoid disappointment 2) Keep the lines of communication open.  It's better to over-communicate a little, than to worry that someone has fallen off the map 3) Providing tracking #'s for your sent trade items saves everyone a lot of hassles and headaches 4) Be wary of trades that seem too good to be true 5) Don't be afraid to ask for references when trading with a new BT'er 6) Examine all trade items upon receipt and discuss any discrepancies with your trade partner promptly     Trading can be a lot of fun.  Just remember to be careful out there!

Hours of my life are spent watching several techniques and how-to's but my favorite star to watch is Desi Perkins! Take a look for yourself, her blending and contouring skills are amazing 😳. Who would you pick as your favorite? Another awesome artist is Kandee Johnson!

I'm so grateful to have strong women in my life including my late grandmother, mom, sisters, cousins, more family and friends. I'm even more grateful to be in a society where, although things can get better, things are pretty decent for women and girls. Here's to all the supporters of women on BT!!!

So I was checking out Chelsea Market (NYC) yesterday and I saw these awesome eco-friendly organizer pouches and I literally wanted ALL of them! They had these funny sarcastic clever sayings on them and I stood there for like a half hour reading them all. In the end I ended up getting the 2 below. One for me and the "pretty" one for my friend who's about to turn 40. I figure it'd be a nice little ego-booster for her since women tend to freak out with these milestone birthdays (ugh!). The seller Pamela Barsky has an Etsy store so you can check out all the funny pouches available!   Anyone else buy something interesting over the weekend...beauty or non-beauty related?

Just have to share  - ordered some clothes and make up from ASOS and it actually ships from the UK (it's a UK based brand), to my house in Detroit practically overnight.     The order was placed in the wee hours of the this morning, 2/25, and it's set for UPS delivery tomorrow.  I'm impressed!  They carry some fun brands and jewelry and beauty - though some of their clothes are pretty poor quality - I love that they have plus sizes too.  Anyway I'm excited about this shopping experience and wanted to share with someone.
