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!

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 !

So, I was browsing through the Sephora site trying to find some new products to try out.  I stumbled upon these cotton swabs which are perfect for removing mascara mishaps without ruining my eye makeup.  Then it got me thinking, what other products on the site have you found that you think not many people know of that is a great find? I'd like to try out some other neat finds

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

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). When you see free shipping on your favorite beauty products and then notice below in very small font US ONLY. ugh   So what grinds your gears? Share your stories!!!

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:

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

Happy Sunday!   I am travelling to Toronto in a few weeks and have never been to Canada before. Luckily, I have already gotten great advice about what to do and where to eat.

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.

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?

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."

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?

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?

There is currently a thread about products/brands that are consistently bad.  I decided to start one on products you love that most people seemingly don't.  I have a bunch. I love the Too Faced heart blush in peach beach.  It got an F from Temptalia and is one of my favorite blushes.  I adore MAC nude lipglosses...which get almost universal hate.  I also like the Tarte Golden Days and Sultry Nights palette which I think has had its one year birthday on the Sephora sale page.  And I even like the Jennifer Anniston perfume...though I admit the wear time wasn't so great. What do you like/love despite the bad reviews (and no nail rings or glitter eye lashes unless you really must...please)!

Once again I have found an eyeshadow palette from Bobbi Brown that looks beautiful.  Once again, the reviews are terrible.  Are Bobbi Brown eyeshadows almost always bad??  I'm not mentioning any cream or stick eyeshadows from this brand since I haven't tried them (I did order the 100 point perk, so I'll see how that performs when it arrives).  I did want the colorful Surf palette a while ago, but once I swatched it in store I could see how bad it really was.  Are these concerns not seen at all at the company, or do they just sell enough that they don't care?!  Sigh..I just want the high price of the palettes to perform.     Anyone else find a brand to be consistently bad at a certain type of  product, whether eyeshadow, foundation, or lipstick?

I hope this is ok since it can certainly be considered beauty related. I'm looking into getting a spa membership. It's $150 and includes all of the following:  One complimentary service per month *Subject to availability. Monday through Thursday. Up to $130 value. Excludes 20% Gratuity. Member Must mention member service at time of booking to receive discount. Offer not applicable on online. 24 Hour Fitness Center Access. Unlimited Group Fitness Classes. Separate women's and men's relaxation lounge and locker facilities, complete with eucalyptus sauna and steam room, heated whirlpool and showers. Unlimited amenity access including heated spa pool during spa hours. Complimentary spa refreshments and healthy snack options. Complimentary Valet Parking. One FREE coaching session with BB3 personal training & nutrition . 20% off Services and Retail. 20% off Restaurants. *Excludes Irelands. 5 Guest Passes Monthly. Preferred Pricing on Workshops. I've been to this spa before and I LOVE it. The pool even has beds beside it! I guess why I'm asking if I should do it is because I'm a college student. I don't have a job but I also don't have bills. I get $500 from my grandpa every month and I have a good bit saved up as well. I graduate college in a year and have no debt. I guess my only concern is that I'll have to cut way back on my beauty purchases. This spa is 20 minutes from my house. WHAT SHOULD I DO?! Thanks in advance for your help

My favorite lipstick model with the beautiful Colgate smile has 7500 hearts.  This funny, compassionate, level headed BTer is one of my favorites.  She is beautiful inside and out.  I've had the pleasure of meeting her in person, and she is even more awesome than I imagined from BT.   If you love her as much as I do, drop by and tell her.
