Spectacular September Hauls
This hasn't been started yet so I'll give it a go.  Today is the last day that SiJCP has an extra 25% off clearance so I stopped in to poke around before I start up the smoker for tonight.  I grabbed all these goodies for $30.

LUV TB: Lost Unicorn for VIBRouge Traveling Box
--closed-- Box of awesome high end items and unicorns, show me yours and I'll show you mine, lol. While I’m not “ancient”, I’ve been on BeautyTalk WAY longer than I ever expected and have made some very good friends….as well as been enabled into getting WAY more makeup, lol. It is getting a bit overwhelming and as much as I like pretty things, my style is more minimalist, so I don’t reaaally need 6 or 7 jars of Guerlain meteorites etc. To help revamp/reorganize my stash as well as having some fun with the awesome friends I’ve made, I’m doing the LUV TB.    It contains lots of makeup that I love but never use, altho I couldn’t bear to part with any perfumes or majority of the skincare, so you ladies will have to make up for it along the way. Keep it classy, with high end and preferably new or lightly used things. No drugstores. Since it’s got tons of expensive items, I asked people I trust who are interested, so the box is closed. If it goes well, I may do another one next year when I've accumulated enough treasures. =P   Expand below to see the rules, taken from the awesome roxystar4 and slightly simplified:   Spoiler (Highlight to read) * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.

Clueless Guys are adorable
I was getting ready for a night out and was applying my makeup when it just so happened that my boyfriend wandered about in my vanity area and picked up my lash curler and asked, "what kind of torture device is this?" and then he went through my makeup stash and continued to ask silly questions about it. He gave my beauty blender a few squeezes and asked just how many shades of red there are that I have to have so many red lipsticks. Then he picked up my Better than Sex Mascara, made a sour face, and then tossed it over his shoulder. I almost died laughing. I knew he was just being silly, but it really makes me wonder how clueless guys about our beauty rituals and just how much time and effort we put into making ourselves pretty.   So ladies, fess' up your significant other's beauty blunders, silly questions and goofy reactions about your makeup and beauty rituals.

When you picture yourself at your best, what do you look like and what would your process be to create that look?    Can include anything and everything from skin care, shower products, make-up, hair products, clothing, shoes, accessories, whatever you think of when you picture yourself at your happiest, most beautiful/handsome, confident.    What do you you use to create the best version of you?

The Canadian Peeps!
So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers.  A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc.   I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board.   I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow.    - I recently posted that Nail Polish Canada has free shipping on any orders for a limited time.   EDITED:   Anyone interested in getting Tonymoly products you can contact them via their Canadian Facebook page to place an order.  5$ shipping, free over purchases 50$.  I think they have a store in Pacific Mall in Markham ON   Tarte now ships to Canada!

What's on your plate?
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?

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.

Subscription box photo sharing
I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

Need Your Opinion
This is the only board I go on and I have found everyone here to be supportive. I hope to get your advice.   I have been looking for steady employment for four years. I have multiple degrees and couldn't even land a minimum wage job and this long, negative journey has resulted in anxiety and severe depression. I finally found a full time job with benefits in my field. I started last week and I hate the job. I'm not being paid a competitive wage for all I'm expected to do and the hours are horrible. I'm scared to leave the job because I'm afraid I won't be able to find another one. I would appreciate any opinions that you have. Thanks!

How long does it take you to do your makeup?
I have a pretty comfy makeup station and I do love me my products and I pretty much use everything from soup (primer) to nuts (setting spray). But I've noticed that instead of getting faster, I'm just getting slower and sloooower in my makeup application. I really enjoy the process of putting my makeup on - it's probably my favorite part of the day. But I feel like it's taking me a ridiculously long time to do my fairly simple everyday look (I don't vary how I do my makeup TOO much from day-to-day). So I used the timer on my phone for the past three days: 42, 50, and 52 minutes! Yikes! You ladies have seen my makeup. Nothing on my face should take 52 minutes! I know I take a long time doing my eyebrows - they're always a trouble spot for me. I'm going to TRY and speed myself up over the next few days so I can at least have more time to walk my dog in the mornings before work.    So I'm curious...how long does it take YOU to do your makeup?

Are there any particular products/brands that you are completely loyal to?  Ever since I discovered Josie Maran's brand 3 years ago, I have not switched my skincare.

Requesting a heart, just one is all I need, I know that sounds odd, but.....
This happened to me once before, I got stuck on a number that had a certain digit repeated 3 times and it freaks me out!!! I'm now at 5_ _ _ (fill in 3 of the number six there). Yes, I know this is weird, I feel like a bit of a freak, but it's been staring me down and it gives me the willies, heebie jeebies and every other icky feeling you can imagine. On the rare occasion that I actually write a check or come across anything with those 3 digits, I'm gone! The check gets ripped up. If I'm playing solitare, end of game - you get where I'm going with that.    So I just need one heart - hate to go begging. Hope this gets seen soon, posting it in off topic and I know that's where many things go to die, sadly.   Thanks for the assist, whatever little angel comes along and helps me out with this problem. It's okay, you can laugh about it - it's just one of those things. Thanks in advance.
