So in about 3 weeks I'll be going out to Vancouver! I've never been & it will be the longest I'v travelled in a while. I'd like to know what some of your travel essentials are. I'll be doing out-doors-ee activities while I'm up in Whistler, & then we'll go back down to the city for the remainder of the trip. Not only would product recommendations would help, but if you've been to Vancouver it would help if you have any recommendations of must-see, dos, & eats! I've also heard that if you're flying & have eyeshadow it's best to put paper towel over them so they don't shatter... Is this a thing?
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. ; )
I'm here until May 2nd! Do any of you ladies and gents have tips for places to go/shop?? My heart broke today because I went into Sephora and they had the Givenchy Confetti Powder in display but it was sold out :-( Hoping I can find it while I'm here! Thanks in advance!
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?
Hey beauty lovers! I just opened a beauty instagram account ! @colourmesam in no way means does that mean you need to follow but thought it would be nice to post here, post below if you guys have beauty accounts which you'd like people to follow ! <3
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.

What are the ways you maximize your spending and rewards for beauty purchases? Coupons, Promos, Rewards cards, Rewards Websites, rebates/ebates? I have used Mypoints.com for years and I recently discovered Swagbucks and Ebates.com. I also look for gwp, free samples, and promo codes. My favorite coupon sites are Brads Deals and Retail Me Not. I also try to use the Cartwheel app for Target when relevant. *sorry for the title error....wont let me edit it.
Here amazing dupes that I found: Aquaphor Lip Repair for AmorePacific Moisture Bound Lip Treatment . The Aquaphor has a very, very, very slight medicine taste, nothing unpleasant/unbearable, while the AmorePacific is unscented and has no taste. About performance, the Aquaphor is just as good as or even better than the AmorePacific. It lasts on my lips all night long, very moisturizing. $4 compared to $35. Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque for GlamGlow Supermud I wish I had found the Mint Julep Masque earlier because I've already finished 2 jars of GlamGlow. The Mint Julep Masque just gives the same effect, and less drying than the Glamglow. And again, $5 for 8oz to $69 for 1.2oz. I can't ask for more!!! Please share yours with a brief review, and price comparison!
Lately I've been amping my looks up for work (server, mostly in the 21 and up area). And wow people like turn around and ladies rave. It's big confidence boosters. And I can thank sephora. I wish I had a picture but I wore the fake eyelashes on sale with the silver glitter, then sephoras glitter glue, a mix of sephora eyeshadow in diamonds are forever and mufes loose silver glitter, and a red lip. Hair in a top bun and a Xmas bow. Loving it. Thank you sephora. I return the favor by telling my customers.
I'm looking for workouts I can do at home. Trying to get healthy in 2015 (who isn't... right?) I love hip hop type workouts. (Les Mills BodyJam was my fav...don't have that where I live now) Cosmo just launched a new site that streams workouts, but it's pretty new so not a lot of info is out there. I know the Daily Burn has been around for a while...anyone have thoughts on this service? Are there other services that you'd recommend instead? Thanx
I just had to say that I had the two best customer service experiences of my life! One at Sephora and the other at Nordstrom's. I went to a Sephora while visiting my father in Florida and I just had the most refreshing moment with an SA. I was just lounging through the mall (my father was being grumpy with not finding what he wanted) so I found a Sephora (I'm not sure how many there are in Miami, LOL! It was near Aventura I think...) and I was just walking around. Wandering really when the nicest SA came up with me and we started chatting. We were just goofing off (something never seen by me in a Sephora on a Saturday night) and all of a sudden she was showing me stuff that she thought I might like and stuff that are her HG. She must have spent an hour and a half on me! I've never felt so wanted in a Sephora before in my life. They normally act like they want me to go away unless I'm getting a makeover. Then they want to show me everything! I didn't get her name (I think it was Marla) but she was truly the best. She almost got me to buy Kat's Interstellar but no one is that good! Then I had a kick **bleep** Nordstrom's experience! Two within 5 days! I had just come back from Florida on Tuesday and I didn't go online for the whole time I was with my father so I was behind on all my sales and things. I called Norstrom's because I was coming into the store on Saturday (eh! the Saturday before Christmas at the mall!) to pick up some stuff and I wanted to see if they were in stock. I got the greatest stylist named Michael! He sat there and looked through the Chanel section for the 500 items that I wanted (he kept asking me if there was anything else that I would like and I just kept coming up with things that I wanted from Chanel!). That's when he told me about the price match on the Lord and Taylor sale that ended that night. I was pissed because I had scheduled my 10 point day for Saturday so I told him that and he called and had my point day switched. Made me very happy. So I got my 10 point day and my 10% off! But if that wasn't enough, he gave me the 10% on the Chanel items (Chanel wasn't included in Lord and Taylor's sale)! He was about to ring me up and he asked me if there was anything else I wanted to buy and I was like "Well, i have to call back because I wanted some Dior and MAC" and he was so sweet and said that he'd grab them for me. So I gave him a list of what I wanted (it was A LOT!) and let him go on his merry hunt for my items. About a half hour later, he called me and said that he got most of my stuff (the only thing that they didn't have in store was the MAC lip pencil in Bespoken For and the holiday Dior eye shadow palette in Golden Shock). I told him that I figured that the Dior eye shadow would be MIA because they took it down off the website but he persisted and he found a store that still had both items and he took my information and said that they would send it to me via UPS. He took care of me at every turn even though I'm just some lady with too much time on my hands who was just too lazy to go to the store and shop around like most people. He put mu whole Christmas gift list together which is awesome enough but then he called me today at lunch and he wanted to know if I wanted him to gift wrap anything! How great is that??? So when I go pick up my stuff at the store tomorrow, not only do I not have to stand there and wait to pay at 500 individual make up and fragrance counters, I have my things already have my things gift wrapped and he said he threw in a million samples. He said every sample they had at the Jo Malone and Chanel counter. I really need to stop shopping but when someone goes out of their way to help you like that, it just makes me want to shop more, LOL! And the biggest shock was about an hour after I talked to him, I got my MAC and Dior order from UPS. I wasn't charged extra for the shipping. I placed my order at 8pm on Wednesday and received my order less than 2 days later! Awesome!
I love the makeup version of this thread! I have saved so much $$ due to all of you posting things from B&M stores as well as the interwebs. With Xmas and end of the year deals fast approaching thought a NON-makeup deal thread would be great for all of us to save $$$ to buy more makeup. LOL List away ladies and gents. Feel free to list codes and extra % from rebate sites. I'll go look through my favorite sites and come back and post. Lord and Taylor online has 20% off code is Ready
