Share your Vanity Ladies!
I know there are several older threads for this already but I think its time to start a fresh one.  So come on ladies...I hope you will all post your new vanity pictures with me!   I just finished a DIY Vanity project I've been working on for a while now and I'm super excited to share with all of you.  Here is a general view first...I got the table for free.  My parents recently bought a new hallway table and I was happy to take their old one. The wall mirror is a vintage item I inherited.  I place closet lights around it to make it bright enough for makeup application.  The picture in the background is one of my favorites...I loved it so much I bought it despite it being a print; its one of the few non-original art pieces in my house. Spoiler (Highlight to read) I bought a second large organizer for my foundations and skincare items.  I used coffee beans to keep the cosmetic brushes neat and some mason drinking jars for my hairbrushes. Spoiler (Highlight to read) This glass lizard was handmade by a local artist...I think he looks right at home here Spoiler (Highlight to read)  This is my other large organizer I already owned, just reorganized. Spoiler (Highlight to read) I put my Z Palettes in a generic folder/mail holder.  The slots are the perfect size for them.  The little figurines are my "Willow Tree" collection. Spoiler (Highlight to read) Underneath, I have room to store my nail polish organizer on top of my reserves.  Spoiler (Highlight to read)  I also have a couple baskets for hair styling tools and my samples I set aside for my TSB.  I also have a couple baskets for hair styling tools and my samples I set aside for my TSB.   And there you have it!  It feels so good to finally have a corner of the house completely dedicated to my lovelies!

What!?! You have over 1000 points and you don't want to redeem them?!?
*ranting session.    So I'm getting tired of the SA who are shocked I have >1000 points and I don't want to redeem them. Once or twice I get....but its most consistently EVERYTIME! Maybe because  of this forum I have a different view but I'm pretty sure a lot of people have WAAAAAY more points. Why is so shocking to the SA? Are we rare point hoarders? ( i don't think I have as many points compared to the 5k plus club girls!!)   Especially with the 4x...3x points event coming up....I didn't think we were unicorns!   *End rant

What is your favorite thing about the Fall?
So, I am not a summer person, I hate the heat and sweating the minute I step outside.   I am an indoor kind of gal in the Summer! I never would have survived before air conditioning! LOL. Anyway, there are so many things that I love about the Fall. Care to share what you love? For me, I would say the thing I like the most is just the crisp Autumn weather, where you can cozy up in a sweater or jacket and walk around without all the humidity. Plus, Halloween is my favorite holiday and my wedding anniversary is in October as well.

beauty products to seek out when traveling
When I was traveling a few weeks ago in Greece, I asked the beauty board recommendations of beauty products to seek out while I was there. I got a few lovely responses and it was fun to check out what they had recommended. I'm still kicking myself for not picking up a few more of the apitiva single use masks to try, because they were cheaper over there at the pharmacies. Would it be helpful for other people to maintain a thread w/ information like this? I want to talk about beauty products to get while traveling and where I should head next to collect some! Let me know if you do, too!

JUANTY JULY FAVVVORITES !
we still have a week left in the month, but i need a distraction and figured now is as good of time as any ! plus i have so many things i want to talk about !!   KATE SOMERVILLE goat's milk moisturizer. i purchased this at the end of last month, and am absolutely loving it. it's keeping my skin very hydrated, and i think it's helping with clogged pores i tend to get on my chin (hormonal). i have only ever used this at night, never in the morning / under makeup so i can't really speak for that. the price is hefty for me but i'm so glad i pulled the trigger on this one, and would definitely recommend to anyone. MAC kohl liner, teddy . this slightly warm brown pencil will never leave my collection again. gives a soft definition, but not too soft ! just adore.... NARS blush, mata hari . this has been on my wish list for ages and it is glorious. i'm still learning to be more confident with blush, but considering that--i've pulled this out 5 times in the 10 days since i've owned it. that's saying something ! NARS audacious lipstick, brigitte . she is a slow burn--i didn't know i wanted her until i had her. absolutely perfect not-too-pink nude, leans just slightly warm/peach so it helps warm up my complexion. (special shout out to RITA and INGRID and NATALIE who have also entered my collection this month) ANASTASIA BEV HILLS brow wiz, granite.  i'm contrarian by nature and avoided the brand. but i needed a new brow product, discovered the shade granite (which is PERFECT) and the rest is history. AVEDA be curly curl enhancing cream . as lots of you have so sweetly recognized, july has marked the return of my curly hair after years (a decade, really, with rare exception) of being styled straight for short 'dos. this was the curl enhancing cream i used a decade ago, and it's still around (at the time curl CREAMS were still quite rare, where curly hair products were dominated by crunchy gels and mousses). this won't hold a curl--you need a different product for that--but it helps nourish, condition and define the curls you got. in other words, it gives your curls order in an otherwise chaotic world. p.s.: JAUNTY JAUNTY JAUNTY !

5 things you've been loving this summer!
Hello everyone! Since its the middle of summer here on the east coast of the USA, I thought it'd be fun to do a post about things you've been loving this summer- whatever it may be- beauty- food- clothes- whatever!  I know there are a lot of threads similar to this- but I don't know if I've come across one yet that is directly about summer! haha!  Here are my 5 things that I've been loving this summer:  #1. Coconut. (OMG just about everything coconut has me HOOKED! Whether it be a coconut cake, body butter, etc!)  #2 Going out to get some soft ice cream!  #3. Formula X nail polish in Hercules, and High Frequency.  #4. Sleeping in almost every morning (the latest being 9:30am)  #5. Fresh fruit (fruit isn't as enjoyable in the winter because its usually not in "season"! Love me some strawberries and raspberries- don't forget the coconut! LOL!)  What are 5 things that you've been loving this summer?? ~XOXOXO

Beauty Pet Peeves
What are your beauty pet peeves?   Here are a few of mine   When there's a huge hype around an item/brand or your own hype to get something and you get it and you are just meh.   I recently got a few items that were taking FOREVER to get to my house.  Canada Post was sooo slow at processing... the items were stuck with them and the tracking wasn't moving at all.  I was so excited and couldn't wait for them to be delivered and finally the items just showed up (tracking not updated) and I was like meh... not too impressed with what I got.  I thought I'd love it but no... not really. Swatched and sitting in a drawer somewhere... awww that just kills me lol   Another one (and this is for the Canadian girls).

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:

PET LOVE! <3
Before I say anything- this post is going to be totally off topic and not about makeup at all!  I thought it would be nice to express our love for our pets, and maybe even pictures, too!  To start off, I used to be a dog person-- years ago.... But my whole perspective changed when a completely mellow nourished(not exaggerating!) female cat wandered in our backyard, hungry and hot. (This was in the summer of 2012) I still remember the poor kitty that was shaking as she ate a can of tuna and a bowl of milk because she was so hungry... Did I forget to mention that she was also a pregnant cat? Without a doubt I grew to love that cat, and I never thought in a million years that I would now be a cat person! But it doesn't stop there... We took that stray cat in, (after vet check up-shots- etc) and named her Olive. (People always ask me why we named her that- but she has these big beautiful eyes that look almost like olives!)  About a month later she had kittens-- 7 to be exact.. Unfortunately one of them was a runt and wasn't even fully developed- and after many attempts to feed it by hand, and through many tears, and a few days- the kitten died. The rest of the 6 kittens were so stinkin' adorable and one of the best experiences I've ever had to take care of as far as animals are concerned! They were so cute- it was so amazing to see them grow and change and learn new things.. We named them all too, even though we didn't attempt to keep all of them! (We as in my family- I still live at home with my parents and siblings)  Samuel, (male) Marty,(male), Charlie (male), Titus(male) Gracie(female), and Mabel(female.) After weeks of deciding which kittens to keep we final decided on Titus and Mabel. When the kittens were old enough to be separated from their mother, we found a great little shelter for the rest of them until they could be adopted to hopefully good homes.  After a couple of months Mabel began to ruin our house by clawing everything-- sadly we have to give her away as well, but later on we decided to get Olive(mom) and Titus(male kitten) declawed.. (We hadnt thought of declawing Mabel at that time so it wasn't an option!) Of course I know many people don't agree with declawing of animals- but if they're indoor cat like ours- and if you get it done when they are still kittens(like Titus was) then they should be fine... And yes- our cats turned out completely fine, after about a month of healing. Anyway, Olive and Titus it was; both beautiful tiger calico cats... That's not  the end of the story though. Last year we actually had 2 strays- one I will not bother telling the story of because he was suffering from terrible accidents outdoors that led him to being put down- and the other one I will quickly explain. Once again, mellow nourished, black & white tuxedo cat, a stray, wanders into our backyard, a sweet little thing. (GOSH his face is the cutest thing ever!) So lets just say that my family and I live with three cats now... Olive, Titus, and Mittens. (Mittens is such a common name for a cat with four white paws!) I love them all so so much, and they each are truly different and I love seeing each of their personalities! I have to admit that Titus is the SWEETEST cat in the entire world--- and I have to say that it is most likely because he was born in our home. He is so cute- he still meows like a kitten- and is totally overweight. (yes, my boo is on a diet- as the rest of them are, LOL!) SO- after I just blabbed my big mouth for half an hour- I want to hear YOUR story of your pets-whatever your pet may be. (And I do still like dogs- but I'm totally a crazy cat lady now!) Please feel free to share your story as well, whatever it might be- whatever means the most to you about your pet- whatever seems special to you--- I hope this post wasn't too boring, lol, and that you do enjoy it! XOXOXO PS. And as I write this post Titus is sleeping next to me. <3

Car Vandalized
This is nothing related to beauty at all. But I just wanted some advice/vent out my feelings. So my two cars' windshields has been vandalized. I got home from work on Thursday night (9pm) and everything was fine. My dad got home from work around 1am. Nothing out of the ordinary so everything seemed fine. Then on Friday morning, I went out to my car at 8:45am and saw some cracks. At first I thought it was bird poop because my car has never been vandalized before. I stepped out of the car and rubbed the cracks. Turned out to be not bird poop and my windshield has 7 cracks along with two cracked lines. Frantic, I looked at my dad's car parked right next to mine and saw the same thing. My mom took a quick look around the neighborhood and to her surprise, our cars were the only ones vandalized. My parents jumped into conclusion thinking it was this family (not next to our house, but the following) did it.  One time that family came up to us and said "our car has been keyed", trying to say that we were the ones that keyed their car- wtf? But anyway, we have a bit of beef going on with them so my parents think they did it. I called the police to make a report, unfortunately no officers will stop by but they did make a case report for it.  I've been losing sleep over this because I'm scared they'll vandalize our cars again. The scary thing is that our cars are parked right in front of our house. It's not like our cars are parked along the curb somewhere. Idk...I'm just so paranoid right now.

Growing Experiences
I was looking through some old pictures on my hard drive and came across pictures from a trip I took to Spain & Morocco back in 2008.  Back then I was pretty innocent and naive.  I went with 4 other girls (1 was a really good friend of mine, another I knew pretty well, and the 4th was a good friend of the second girl) and basically I let them push me around during the whole trip.  They dismissed me because I was the youngest.  I let them because I thought they are more experienced so they know more than me.  This was totally not the case because as the only fluent Spanish and Arabic speaker I was imperative in getting us where we needed to go.   It was a great learning experience for me because it taught me to speak up for myself.  I never would have gotten to the position I have today (in my career I mean) without going through such a trying time.     Anybody have a similar kind of growing experience?  What did you learn and how has it helped you in your life?

Making Healthier Choices
I know have seen various threads like this during my time on the forum, but I couldn't find a recent one, so I just started my own.   Summer seems to always be the time when my husband and I get back on the wagon with trying to make healthier choices and choose a healthier lifestyle. I really want it to stick this time. We both have a quite a lot of weight to lose and we just want to feel better.   I made a revelation Monday night in my BOXING class! (Yes, I am taking a boxing class, this week was the first one, it was a WORKOUT but I'm doing it with friends so there is a lot of support) It dawned on me that I am a lot more successful and working out and losing weight when I am doing it by going to classes. Just going to the gym with my husband doesn't do the trick, I don't have any motivation or drive just working out on the treadmill with him. (You'd think I would, that we could encourage each other, but somehow that hasn't worked so far)  But when I am in a class or working out with other friends, I push myself a lot harder and give a lot more. With my husband, he lets me give in and doesn't push me to do my best. But when I am in a class and I see my friends doing all this stuff, and don't want to stand out as the one who gives up!!!    SO, besides Boxing (which is only once a week and it's only a five week class), I'm going to try to do a better job of going to classes at the Y. Tonight, I'm going to a muscle pump class. It'll be my first time.    We are also trying to make better choices with our food. So far for me, that has meant eating a lot of fruit. Namely, blueberries. I am addicted to them. It's ridiculous.    AND the biggie- I'm cutting WAY down on how much soda I drink. This has always been the one thing that is a hangup. I haven't been able to give up soda. For now, I'm not going cold turkey. But I am drinking a lot more water and cutting way back on how much soda I drink.    Anyway- what kinds of things are you ladies doing to feel better or to get (Or stay) healthy?  Let's encourage each other!!    I've bought two shirts with the purpose of wearing them to workouts and just to encourage myself. The first one has Princess Zelda and Princess Peach on it and they are poised to fight and it says "We'll Save Ourselves, Thank You."  And the second one, just arrived yesterday, is from my new obsession (THANKS to kbmatthews), Captain Marvel, and it has her star on it and it says "Higher. Further. Faster. More."

Popular Skin Care Brands Word Association
Alright, I've been meaning to do this for a while, and my boss is out sick, so today's the day! Not sure how this is going to go, but let's find out together.   If you don't know the drill, you can see the make-up brand version here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/Popular-Mak e-Up-Brand-Word-Association/m-p/1566624#M37719 If you haven't read through or done it yourself, you should - it's pretty fun to see other people's answers, and even how your own answers can change over time.   Anyway... onto v2.0 - Skin Care! I just copied and pasted (and italicized) the instructions from the previous thread into the spoiler if you need a refresher.     Spoiler (Highlight to read) Okay, since this is a Sephora board, I'm sticking with the popular brands of skin care that are sold at Sephora.   What words, terms, concepts do you associate with the following brands? It doesn't matter if your associations are logical, rational or completely batsh!t crazy - what do YOU think of when you think of the following brands?    I think I got almost all of the common ones talked about on this board... but if you don't have any thoughts on any of them, feel free to leave them blank or ? or whatever... it's just for fun to see how people view things differently!    I'll do mine in a separate post to keep things clean for copy/paste purposes.

EvangelineDamon has 5000 Hearts
I am a smidgen early, but I need to take a BT break for a few days (she knows why).  If someone else wanted to throw it, I will not be offended if you disregard mine and start your own.  As long as the people who love Evangeline come to celebrate her, that is all the matters.       To one of the sweetest BT members on the board.  She is always upbeat and positive.  Her thoughtful private messages mean more than she knows.  I cannot get enough of those lips.  You all know what I mean.  Our other fabulous lipstick model has hit 5000 hearts.   If you love her as much as I do, drop by and tell her.

What I love about me! The feel good thread!
So often, I read on BT what someone doesn't like about themselves. From their complexion, weight to even nose shape. It's time we all celebrate who we are and show some love to yourself! We are all beautiful... Even with the insignificant flaws you see in yourself! Time to pump yourself up! In the spirit of Marie Claire's monthly column, share what you love about yourself! I'll go first: I absolutely love my eye color. It's unique and so fun to play up. I get compliments all the time and I love that! Your turn! What do you love about you?
