Day 1 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:
Hello friends! Looks like this great gift idea is back in stock!👏 Available quantities look low, but there are at least 10 in stock. http://www.sephora.com/monopoly-sephora-edition-P1 68712?skuId=966788&om_mmc=oth-bt-richlinks-2013

Hey guys. Just curious to see how other makeup lovers out there store/display their treasures. I got so sick and tired of having all my products in makeup bags and inside a fabric storage bin, that today i went out on a mission and found and purchases acrylic drawers. ( I cleared the shelves out at HomeSense LOL). Sadly I've asked them to try to get more for me. Thinking some of us could post and share how we store our makeup to inspire or give each other some creative ideas to get organized. Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read)
It took me over an hour and a half to place my order on the Urban Decay website. I know that Black Friday is a busy time but wow! I've never had this much of a problem. I almost gave up and forgot about placing my order but the Ammo palette for $10 was too good of an offer to pass up. Eh! Time for a nap!
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!
This is a serious question. My family loves holidays.... especially Thanksgiving and Christmas. I've always loved this time of year. I'm recently engaged and right now I feel like everyone is mad at me. How do couples split up the family time during the holidays without making everyone feel shortchanged? For Thanksgiving-- my mom is mad that we're leaving early and my future mother in law is upset that we're coming late. Should we just split up and go to our own family celebrations without each other? What are we supposed to do at Christmas? What happens if we have kids? My family is in Philly. His is in DC. We both reside in Maryland. Do we just spend holidays riding up and down the interstate? I just feel sad. I don't like making problems in the middle of something that is supposed to be fun but I really don't know what to do.
I keep my living room and bed room clocks 5 minutes ahead of actual time. Although I know these are ahead still it helps me manage the early morning rush to get kids ready for school and hubby for job and kids are always ready to leave 5 minutes earlier than their pickup time and we have a few extra minutes to deal with any unexpected situation. I wonder how many of you do same and keep some of the clocks ahead.
trying new products can be...overwhelming. do you love a product because it works ? can you tell right away if it's performing the way you want it to ? sometimes i'm so happy to finally try something and let my enthusiasm blind my actual impression of it (at least at first ) it takes time to come to proper conclusions ! particularly when it comes to skincare, but makeup too. so here's a thread where we can discuss our experiences while trying a product for a first time. it can also be a place that people can reference if they're considering a new product. right now i'm trying a sample of the REN v-cense night cream. i've only used it for 2 nights so far, but i LOVE IT. i love it so much i'm tempted to go ahead and grab it up, but i need to make sure it doesn't break me out over time (it contains shea butter which *can* be a breakout trigger for me, but not necessarily). it smells of frankincense which i adore, but i know for some people would be a turn off. i'm also checking out the VICHY aqualia thermal serum. i really love the CAUDALIE vinosource s.o.s. thirst quenching serum, and prefer the texture of it to the VICHY, but think the caudalie may break me out slightly (i also was probably overusing it...i was very enthusiastic). so i'm just trying to figure out which i prefer. how about you ?
Joe's Kid has reached the big 3k. From one Daddy's Girl to another, I have to say she is amazing. She makes everyone feel welcome. Thanks for being so wonderful with everyone. May your amazingly bright eyes always be brighter than the rest of us (who use a lot of GlamGlow)!
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?
One of my all time favorite BTers crossed the big 5k mark. She is always helpful and friendly. This is the reigning Queen of Pink. With all of her new Jill Stuart items, she will reign a lot longer, too. Here's to Leah, and may she receive many, many more hearts as everyone else realizes how awesome she is.
Hi, All! I wanted to wish my fellow BTers a very happy turkey day!!! Also, I wanted to say that I'm thankful for my family, friends, and the best thing I found this year: Nars Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base! No more oily lids for me. Woo hoo! What are you thankful for?
So I feel like doing my makeup, but it's raining so I don't think I'll be going out. That's not the point of this status though. What kind of music do you prefer on a rainy day? Mine goes from classical music, to the beatles, and of course - David Bowie! Edited to include the picture I took the other day.
Yesterday I was browsing the skin care section of T.J. Maxx and was surprised to find these two great items, for a super great price! The eye mud was only 29.99 and the set with the 1.7 clearing mud and .5 super mud was only 39.99. I purchased two of each one for me, one for my sister.
With the holidays coming up (Christmas is a month away as of today!), I thought we could all share what we celebrate and how we do it, and if there's anything on our wish list (whether as a gift or taking advantage of the sales). I was raised Christian so we celebrate Christmas, and we try to put most of the emphasis on spending time with loved ones and giving to those in need. We sponsor a family or two that are in need, and give them gifts (that include both needs and wants), and even sometimes invite them over for Christmas dinner. Since my daughter is almost 4, I'm trying to show her that there's more to the season than just getting toys. My goal is to get her to pick out toys she hasn't played with and donate them herself, as well as pick one of her brand new Christmas toys to give, once she opens them all. I also decided to get her things that encourage more creativity: an art desk with drawers for supplies, some dress up clothes including superhero, elsa, and doctor, books, and a snowman/snow fort kit. For those who give gifts, I've told them to either put some money away for my daughter's tuition fund, donate it, or go on a "date", like catch up over a drink, dinner, movie, museum, etc. My good friend is Jewish and she has invited my daughter and I to celebrate Chanukah with her and her family this year. I don't know much about it, but I'm really excited to learn and honoured to be included! So... what about you?
One of my all time favorite BTers has finally achieved her long overdue Hall of Fame Status. She is friendly, helpful and a wonderful asset to our community. I know she's touched my life, and I am guessing she has touched quite a few of you as well. We all envy her amazing eyes. Please join me in showing her the love she deserves. Congrats, Meaghan! BT loves you!!!
Happy Thanksgiving Weekend everyone! xoxo In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to ask you all, what are you thankful for? I'm thankful for the wonderful people I've met in my life who have been so supportive of me, and love me for who I am. OH, and makeup too.
our darling syd has reached 5000 hearts!!! she's an amazing bt contributor - from the trades threads, to recognizing makeup as art, to always having a recommendation! syd is the woman who sees the beauty in everything! but even more she's an amazing friend!!! syd i love you and i'm honoured to be able to call you a friend!!! let's hear it for our sydbristow!!!!

I just renewed my drivers license yesterday and made it a point to do it in person so I could retake my picture. The last picture I took had been unexpected and I had no chance to prepare. Fingers crossed this one will come out better. How does yours look? Any good stories out there?
Now that the weather is getting colder (in most places) more of us are switching to hot tea, coco, etc. So lets share - who is drinking what (from teas, to coffees to even wines, etc), post a pic if you would like ; other wise just specify the name of your beverage and continue to enjoy it My husband woke me up with a hot tea for breakfast. It was Green Mint Tea - now I feel refreshed, awake but still not ready for this day !!!
