Crazy cat ladies/gentlemen!
I feel we need our own thread for all of the awesome stuff we get for our furry friends. I love to spoil my two cats  almost as much as I love spoiling myself with Sephora goodies And honestly, I can always use more ideas on how to incorporate awesome looking cat toys, climbers, or whatnot into my home. I'll share my current faves in the comments!

No-buy/low-buy support group!
I haven't see a no-buy thread in a while, so I thought I'd start one up, mainly b/c I could use the support!   I'm on a no-buy from now til...however long I can last! I'm taking a trip to Italy at the end of the year AND in the meantime will be taking the GRE + applying to grad school, so I'm trying to save up as much as possible for these upcoming expenses. And on top of that I've shopped like crazy this summer so I think it's time to just take my credit cards and stick them in the freezer or something. Naturally, I'm imagining this though:     Anyone else trying very hard to restrain themselves?

Summer 2014 Playlist from Sephora Shares
Has anyone downloaded the Summer 2014 playlist from Sephora? I had it but it got deleted so I'm trying to find the correct track listing that Sephora had listed on its website. I just need the correct track order they had listed. Thanks.

For all the beauty junkies out there:   I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little -- if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny. ---- Coco Chanel

New to you shadow colors?
Have you ever tried a shadow (or other color product) color that you thought would be awful and turns out that you love it?  I recently got the Too Faced Bonjour Summer palette for the nice compact size and the Mermaid shadow color (I love anything mermaid!). I tried the color Firefly today, it looks orange in the pan, and it turns out I'm in love! How 'bout you all? Have you accidently found something fabulous?

Just signed up for Bobbi Brown's Workshop! Who's In?!
I'm sooooo excited! I just bought Bobbi Brown's Beauty Manual in Barnes and Noble the other day and loved it. I just happened to take a peek at her actual website and saw that she's got a team of makeup artists that hold workshops. I was thinking...how am I getting to CA or NY for these?!?!? Then I found out it's right at the Bobbi Brown Studio in my State! (NJ) I didn't know this place existed. Just so happens that the Basic Beauty workshop is being help next Friday from 4-8pm. It's $200 ($100 redeemable in product) If any of you are from NJ and have the $, maybe you should come with!! I'm overly excited about this ;-)  Happy Monday <3

Your significant other wants to shop Sephora...Good or bad news??
So I've been shopping at Sephora for a while and it's been my retail therapy. I love trying products and just roaming the aisle. My guy would go to another store while I shop. Now, he asked me about a cleanser and I was happy to show him a few that would be great. I think I've created a monster because now he wants more. Would this be good or bad news for you? On one hand I would enjoy having company sometimes and on the other the money we spent on his skin care would be less for my products. I know that sounds selfish but yeah, I think dollars and cents. He wants to go back next weekend to browse more products. Oh boy. What would you do?

Does anyone else dislike drugstore makeup?
I know this may sound harsh, but I really dislike all drugstore makeup. I'm sure there are many products out that are of great quality, even better than some high end makeup, but I have never found a drugstore product that I have liked. I've tried primers, foundations, powders, eye shadows, eye liners, mascaras, lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip stains, but each product has left me disappointed. I've also tried makeup removers from the drugstore, but they also left me disappointed. Does anyone else dislike drugstore makeup? I've stopped trying drugstore makeup all together now because every product has left me disappointed; which led to quite a bit of money being wasted. I only get high end makeup now because I am rarely ever disappointed with my purchases.

Thinking of going to makeup school
I've always loved makeup. I took Cosmetology back in 2002-2004 because I thought there were more makeup lessons involved, but there wasn't any. I am tired of my 9-5 desk job and I'm thinking of making a big change. I'm 28 and to the point where I need the extra push. They just opened up the first and only makeup school in NJ; Robert Fiance Makeup Academy and I am really thinking about attending! They offer a "Journeyman" program, which includes freelance makeup and theatrical. What do you guys think???? Has anyone ever gone to one?

Overused Words/Phrases
Are there any phrases and/or words that you think are overused and are starting to bug the heck out of you? The one that is getting on my nerves the most is "curated". For example, "this makeup line was curated by our beauty editor." I just feel it's so over the top and pompous. Also, the word "sweet" instead of "cool". I actually heard a woman who had to be at least 75 years old using it. I laughed so hard I almost fell over.

Strawberries everywhere!
I'm on vacation this week and am staying close to home.(I made raisin butter tarts for the first time ever yestarday!) Decided to go strawberry picking today. I didn't think 6 quarts (a flat) of strawberries was a lot... Until I started trying to use them up lol. Made a batch of Strawberry Cupcakes and just finished making Strawberry Jam (that produced 5 - 500 ml jars!) and I still have 2 quarts of berries left.  ***drowns in strawberries*** lol

Does your makeup/hair ever look so good...
that you can't stop staring at yourself in the mirror? that you want to take a bunch of selfies? that you don't want you work out/shower because you look too good? As makeup addicts, I think it's ok to be little conceited from time to time. That was me today. I haven't been wearing a lot of makeup in the past few days and today I was so bored that I decided to do my full face. I cannot tell you how many times I stared at my contour. It just looked so good!

What not to wear - the Makeup Edition
OK, in reading though the makeup regrets of the past, it made me wonder if there are makeup faux pas that some of us may be doing and we are not even really aware that they are god awful. I need to know LOL.   I will admit that sometimes I match my eyeshadow to my top - is this horrible? Like if I'm wearing a coral top I'll do a coral look on my eyes - not INYOURFACE coral, but say better than doing blue and totally clashing, no?   I also own (although haven't worn in a long time) MAC's High Strung which falls into the silvery-pink category. It's brand new and unsed. YIKES! Guess I should consider adding that to my Back to Mac stash.    So lay em all out here - and let's see if anyone is brave enough to own up to them. :-) I just owned up to 2!!

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.
