Tax Deductible Items for Volunteering
Hi ladies! My mom and I have started getting more and more into volunteering and I am trying to compile a list of different purchases that can become tax deductible surrounding the event(s) where the volunteering is taking place.   Here are a list of items that I'm not sure whether they would be tax deductible (if tied to volunteering) or not: -gas purchases -food/drink purchases -any purchases while volunteering (buying merchandise, etc)   If you know any other tax deductible items, that would be great to share. Thank you!

Being Away and Busy
Hi everyone!  I've been off of BT for nearly two months now!    I really wish BT worked on my phone... I miss all the lovely BT gals. I will try to get on BT more often; just most of the time I fall asleep before my face hits the pillow.  I'm sure a lot of us know the struggle.  I'd love to keep in touch with my BT cohorts... does anyone use Instagram?  If you do, please send me a PM and I'll add you!! I miss this wonderful amazing supportive community!!   Hugs to you all!!

Free Sephora gift cards with the GetGiftz App
Hey everyone,   Just wanted to drop by and share my experience with GetGiftz, an iOS app to earn free gift cards. I only downloaded it because I saw they also offer Sephora cards   Basically what you need to do is complete some missions such as surveys, watch videos or test apps for which you earn points and then you can redeem them for the gift cards. I only share this because I already received my first gift card so it really works!    Here is the link and if you want 50 free points for the start use my promo code: caparker   https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/getgiftz-earn-free -gift-cards/id957306947?mt=8

BT spoonies, unite!
Hi, all! I'd like to make a place where "spoonies" (people with chronic illnesses and disabilities) can dish. If you're not familiar with the Spoon Theory, check out butyoudontlooksick dotcom. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia (among other things) over a year ago, and it's been an arduous journey. I've found that makeup provides me with an escape from reality; I might feel terrible on the inside, but on the outside I look good Feel free to vent, rant, encourage, and share your experiences with chronic illnesses here. All are welcome!

Sephora: The Ultimate Guide to Makeup, Skin and Hair from the Beauty Authority
  Was debating whether I want to get this book. None of my local BN's have it so I would have to order it online. However without taking a peek inside I don't know how useful it is. Does anyone have it and can give a review?

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, but it's sort of an off topic subject so I thought it would fit here. I'm trying to find some other people in the makeup enthusiast community in Delaware (US) If you have any ideas, please message me or share..thank you!

hello, I would like some info on applying to be a beauty advisor?
Hello, everyone. I am 18 years old and I have a passion for makeup but as a hobby-past time. My local sephora has openings to be a beauty advisor I would really love to apply but the only problem is it would be my first job but I've volunteered at this local store in customer service before. Anyways the problem is theres this part in the qualifications/skills section saying 'experience preferred' which do I actually need experience or no? and another thing it also says 'cosmetic experience required' I usually do makeup on myself but I don't have very much experience on giving makeovers to others. Anyways, I really would love to apply but I don't think I can if I don't have any experience / do makeovers on others. What do you guys think?  thank you.

They claimed what?! Outrageous beauty claims
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:

Will Sephora ever....*fun thread*
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?

Sephora France
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.

Gender Norms
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.

Does anyone know when MUFE Pro Finish 110 will be back in stock?
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.

Looking for a light book to read?
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.  ; )

GM releasing software that tattles on teen drivers
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.

Beautytalk PSA: Always Be Vigilant When Trading
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!
