Wow. Who knew I would be so close before the ending of this year. I think it's mainly due to all the xmas gifts I bought from Sephora. I know everyone has been having mixed feelings about Rouge but I'm excited to reach this level because I enjoy shopping at Sephora so much. I think it's time for me to go out and buy the Naked 3! I'm just glad I didn't force myself to buy things I didn't need to finally reach Rouge. How did you feel when you hit Rouge? Or how far are you from it if you haven't hit it yet?
How long did it take you to get your first subscribers? And how do you promote your blog to attract new subscribers? I just started my blog a week ago and I know it will take a long time to develop a following, but I am just curious about anyone else's experiences regarding beauty blogging. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!
Since we all had so much fun doing wedding themes I’ve decided to take the liberty in creating a board.
If you’re married, what was your wedding theme?
If you’re engaged what are you planning on doing for your wedding theme?
And if you’re still looking for the perfect significant other to go with your dream wedding theme what is it?
For me, I’ve always wanted something kind of whimsical. I LOVE the idea of renting out an old theatre for a classic old Hollywood-esque themed wedding or doing a carnival themed event haha.
For the old theatre theme I’d probably want to hang movie posters up featuring my SO and I. We could have a red carpet (don’t think I’d wanna do the whole cheesy paparazzi thing) though.
Most people look at me like I’m a nut when I tell them about that, but when I say ‘think Water for Elephants’ they quickly catch my drift.
For a carnival wedding I’d want fun foods like sliders, a French fry bar (with different dipping sauces like aioli, chipotle, etc), cotton candy martinis. I’d also want to hang upside down parasols around or do oversized paper lanterns.
I just realized that, after two weeks of finals, numerous doctor visits, running errands, preparing for Christmas, my 6 year old never sleeping past 2a.m. and all my regular "wifely duties" I'm thoroughly exhausted! I think after accomplishing all this, I should treat myself to a visit to Sephora (when I go to the "big city" to see yet another doctor!) hmmmm....what shall I treat myself with??? And more importantly...what shall I treat my husband with for putting up with me through this????
YAY! May I present, another SUPER heart party for the thousanders who have contributed SO much here and haven't had their heart parties yet! Here's a fashionably late party for all you wonderful ladies. Congradulations to Titian06 for 1000+ hearts! I definitely remember seeing your helpful advice around but didn't realize you are not on my friends list yet but I'm adding you here now/anyways. Cheers for the first 1000 hearts! Congradulations to CrayzeeRN for 2000+ hearts! And for always bringing a little sprinkle of cheerfulness to all the posts you make. =D Congradulations to Drrragon for 3000+ hearts! And for the random chats about nerdy stuff. Always good to see a chic nerd around, and *high five* for becoming a fellow new meteorites owner. =P Congradulations to Nebel for 3000+ hearts! And for always being so cool/collected amidst heated discussions. Whenever I see your name I have an image of yoga and "Ommmm..." in my head despite the "exasperated" dog avatar. Congradulations to Dannyc for 4000+ hearts! My fellow skincare addict who started THE first traveling Sephora box on BT and started my mini-lipstick obsession by passing me the mini Bite rouge lippie. =O Cheers to many more helpful/fun posts to come! () () (^.^) ~Happy holidays! (v v)o
Thought I would try my hand at questions this time. Here goes... 1. Do you celebrate Christmas or some other gift-giving holiday this time of year? 2. Have you purchased anything from Sephora to give as a gift? If so, what? 3. Share one good thing that's brightened your day today (it's OK to say nothing if you've had a particularly crappy day). 4. What's your favorite mascara? 5. What is your ideal career? 6. Do you have any siblings (half siblings count)? If so, do you get along with them? 7. Share one of your favorite holiday traditions (if you have any). Here are mine: 1. I celebrate Christmas. 2. Not so far... 3. A text conversation I just had with my mother in walkie talkie lingo, where we addressed each other as "[work name] slave." 4. Right now I'm digging Sephora's Full Action mascara but I can be swayed. 5. Recording artist (preferably with my band) 6. I have a sister that I mostly get along with, even though she's my polar opposite in almost every sense. 7. One of my favorite things to do is go for a walk with my entire family on Christmas night to a particular street where everyone owns a huge house and the Christmas lights/displays/décor is insane. One house is so completely covered in lights it's dizzying to look at. Ok, enough of me. Let's hear about you!
Hi there, I have two days left (they hold your spot for 72 hours) to subscribe for Birchbox, if I want to. The thing is, I don't know if I want to or not! I know it's just $10 a month, but is it worth it? A few months of Birchbox could, after all, buy me something I'm sure to like...so I'm torn. Any advice would be much appreciated, especially from those of you who subscribe or have in the past. Thanks! PS After reading some previous posts similar to mine, I'm leaning towards no...
Where you finally know what you want? (even if it's somewhat vague) I had one of those today. I know that I want: to go to school (i turned 26 in the fall but better late then never) a truck ( yeah, i'm 5"3 but whatever ) to fix my credit and get a credit card again to learn how to skate well to learn how to play the violin to stick to a healthy way of eating (so those extra pounds with come off) a new fashionable wardrobe (in a smaller size ^) and more make up What do you want? (It can be anything )
BT isn't allowing me to reply to comments people have made- when I click it says "this action is not allowed" or something there along those lines. Does anyone know why or what I can do to fix it? Please help! Thanks in advance!
I just wanted to wish everyone here on BT who is a student--at any stage in their academic career--a big GOOD LUCK on finals, and Happy Holidays to you and yours My boyfriend reminded me earlier today: 50 minutes of studying, 10 minutes of break, and repeat. That's the best ratio, apparently. My ten minute break is just about up, so, back to studying I go! Hugs to all of you and don't forget to eat before your tests! <3
I saw this on Benefit's facebook page along with a funny comment and figured we could have some fun over here. Change the lyrics to something beauty related. Oh, the holidays are so stressful, Sephora's perks are so delightful, My credit card I will repay, Order away! Order away! Order away! I definitely won't be stopping, I'll shop until I'm dropping. Is that eye shadow in silver gray? Order away! Order away! Order away!
I placed a flash shipping order ($31 total) over 20 hours ago. Usually it ships in under 6. Not sure if I should be mindful when placing additional orders for Christmas. I travel for the holidays so I usually get the gifts a few days beforehand so I can wrap and pack them up. This is not a complaint, just inquiring so I can plan my holiday shopping accordingly.
-RESOLVED- So I have this car that WAS in prestine condition.....until I got into a car crash that renders it undrivable because the hit bent everything in one of the wheel area. The price of repair is half what I paid for the car (despite the fact it's only 20-30% damaged), and it's undrivable so I don't think I can sell it as it is now. So now, I'm not sure what to do with it. Anyone have any experience with broken/crashed car? ps. Sorry to be really really off-topic, but I'm not sure where to ask. T.T
Hi girls (and boys? do we actually have boys here?)! This is my week of finals. I have 2 today, 2 tomorrow and one on Sat. I'm scared like hell and feel like I'm not ready at all! I just want to wish good luck everyone who still have some papers/tests left for this semester! We can do it! *Maybe reward by going to Sephora next week?*
'Tis the season of engagements. That, plus kellsmuneoka's thread about Ridiculous Prices and IllegallyBlonde's Engagement Rings thread, made me start wondering about wedding dresses. If you're married, what was your dress like? If not, what is your dream dress? How much are you willing to spend? I'd love to hear your thoughts! Although I'm engaged, I haven't even started looking for a dress because we won't start planning the wedding until my fiance moves up here...but that should be happening soon! My research has now begun by watching marathons of Say Yes to the Dress lol. Anyway, rant and rave away!
At work this morning all the employees are passing around this envelope so one of them can go drive 2 hours away to purchase lotto tickets (mega millions). I think I was the only one that didn't put any money in it. Personally, I wouldn't want to win the lottery. Too much greed and spoiled lives, not to mention the bickering between family and friends. That's ok I'll pass and live contently not having to worry which charity or people I would give away my winnings to. Talk about a stress factor, then again you could have a lifetime supply of Sephora products! Do you think having a business doing the "lotto run" together is a nay or a yay? What about yourself, do you buy tickets or are you oppose to it?
I am just so excited about these. For those of you who haven't heard of them, ABH has come out with eyeliner pencils in a variety of shades, and because so many MUAs on Instagram endorse the brand, I come across them a lot in their looks. Here's the set (all images from blogs kellicakke and missmakeupmagpie: Of the 7 full-sized pencils included for $28 (and they're usually $18 a pop!), I was particularly intrigued by Absynthe and Lavish: ...How could I not be? Right? So, I found them on eBay (realizing now I could have gotten them from Urban Outfitters and other online retailers but, oh well... They're on their way to my lustful clutches loving home now! Squeeeee! Anyone try these and love/hate them? Care to share in my wide-eyed drooling over those glittery shades? I couldn't resist! At least I know that in that, I'm not alone...
Hey Ladies, I just went into Nordstrom's yesterday and saw the most tacky and ugly pink sequined dress on the planet (in my opinion) and look at the price tag and it's $2,230. THAT'S RIDICULOUS IMO. I don't care who made it ,it was disgusting. Did anyone ever see a beauty product, clothing, etc where you had to hold back laughter and disgust because you could never imagine anyone buying it for that much if so, please tell me what it was and the price. xoxo, Kelly P.S I'm not trying to offend anyone who would buy something like that for that price, I just have a different style and budget.
Hi BT's! Just wondering if any of you know of any good monthly beauty subscriptions! I currently have a subscription with Ipsy, just looking for something else to try as well. Please keep in mind that The subscription has to be able to ship to Canada! Thanks
I purchased the Benefit Advent Calendar through Sephora and as some of you know, I ended up receiving the wrong product on day 1 of the calendar (should've got a coralista blush and instead got the a-lister gloss). I spoke with a customer service representative from Sephora and they suggested I speak with Benefit since it was clearly an issue during the processing phase at Benefit. For the record, Sephora offered me a refund but since they were sold out of the calendars that was my only option and I really did want to keep the calendar. So I contacted Benefit. They immediately tried to pass the buck off to Sephora and say that it was their problem. So off I go again talking to Sephora. The customer service representative from Sephora was wonderful! She contacted Benefit on my behalf and offered them proof of purchase for me in hopes that they would be able to assist me. Back to Benefit once again, I spoke directly with a manager. I told him that I didn't want money, or a brand new calendar, or to make out like a bandit. I just wanted the coralista blush sample that they manufacture and that I should've got in my set to begin with.I had already e-mailed them a picture of my missing item and the item I got in it's place (on the day I should've got the a-lister gloss, the door was empty). I then gave the manager my order number from Sephora (to again, prove I purchased this legitimately) and I mentioned the Sephora representative who contacted them on my behalf. Again, Benefit claimed there was nothing that they can do. I told him that they obviously don't stand behind their product as there was a mistake on their end and they weren't even willing to make it right (I even offered to pay shipping for them to send me the itty-bitty blush)! So because they were unwilling to remedy this situation and wanted to hold on to a blush that cost them a miniscule amount to make, they will lose out on much more since I will no longer be a Benefit shopper. Sorry for the long rant, but bad customer service is something I can't stand and think people should know about.
I dont know what to get my dad and Ive already wrapped my sister and mom's presents. Over the past years Ive always just gave him a shirt, wallet, or belt but I want to give my dad something different this year! Im only good at thinking cosmetic kind of stuff... Please give me some ideas! <3
So, I'm about to throw in the towel and accept the fact that there are only good men in television, books, and movies. Before I do, I want to throw it out there and see what you ladies have to say. Especially, if you have a good one. I'd love to read some inspirational stories of good husbands or boyfriends. I'm not feeling very optimistic right now and I know there have to be other ladies who feel the same.
