Sheesh! Some people need more llamas in their lives... Just saying. ( Would benefit their beauty. So, it's beauty related. There. )

 

But...

Ok, something about this got me.  In honor of all the stolen photos and llamas (stolen llamas, or llamas that just made me smile)...

And natural llama looking for an all in one neutral travel palette for out door looks.  Sorry...I'm bored...

Did someone ask about what will be the best option for the lovely llama(s) coloring?

 

Depends on which lovely llama we're dealing with! Smiley Wink

 

Outdoor llama is definitely a winter, action hero looks like a spring, sheriff is a summer and miser-a-llama is a fall. Now if everyone will please take out their copy of "Color Me Beautiful"....

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GennX You have a good eye for coloring!   I remember that book.  It's been years since I've seen a copy but now you have me wanting to take a look again!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@meganlisa

 

There's been a lot of additional 'stuff' added to the original 4 season "Color Me Beautiful" system, depending on which source you like best, there will be a minimum of 3 variants to each 'season' although there are a few out there I've seen with more and/or spin things a bit differently. Given that the first version came along in what - the 1970's?

 

And I've never been one to shy away from at least *trying* to help people asking "what colors do I look best in" kinds of questions, even if they get repetitive - but even I get to a point where I feel like I'm continually running into a re-bar reinforced concrete wall over someone who just doesn't want to accept that the one thing they refuse to consider changing (like their hair color being all one color and dark when it would naturally be doing what hair does as we age...greying!) is probably at the center of all their best colors confusion.

 

I can't find the llama song right now, I'll have to look some more in a bit when I've got more time!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GennX I didn't even know there is a llama song!   

I should go back to the Color Me Beautiful system and take a look.  It's been so long.  My coloring is fairly neutral so easy (overall) but my daughter has totally different coloring and I never know what will work on her....

There are certain questions I've gotten a little tired of answering and certain debates I'm no longer willing to have.  But I think most of the time we help when we provide feedback!!!

Now I'm going to look for the llama song too....

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Here it is!

@meganlisa

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GennX Love it!  Absolutely adorable.  The words are precious.  Thank you!  You made my day.  Want to bet I can't get the tune out of my head!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@meganlisa

 

It's definitely catchy. Smiley Tongue There are other llama songs but none quite like the original!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GennXYou're my new favorite person!  It's just so fun.  Happy new year!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Happy new year (even though it's a week into things now!)

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GennX Same to you!  Perfect timing.  My son has been home from school sick and I showed him the llama song.  Made him smile!  So I'm sharing!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@meganlisahahahahaha LOL  stolen llamas??? Do you mean the pictures of llamas we take from google are stolen? Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@veronika23 I caught only a glimpse of another BT picture argument and didn't want to get called out for stealing a llama picture from the internet.  These photos are genuinely borrowed!  But also credited!!!

My stolen llamas....

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@meganlisa  Gotcha! That's what I thought! Thx Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I have been getting emails from Sephora that have started to annoy me. The title of the one today was "Did you forget something?" There was also a photo of a finishing powder that I had clicked on earlier while browsing. No, I did not forget anything! I created a loves list for a reason. Don't tell me what to buy! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594 My boyfriend was/is sleeping but I can not stop laughing. I think I woke him up!

 

The "reminders" are not the best tactic. I get them from various merchants and they range from "we miss you" (oh, do you now?) to "did you forget something?" (I sure didn't!)

 

PS: I wouldn't mind these reminders so much if Sephora/Ulta did it for deluxe samples/promos (for example a gentle reminder along the lines of "hey this promo code is still in stock!" would be awesome! Smiley Wink

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I hate these kinds of reminder emails. I like to add things to my cart to see if a promo is still working, and I forget to clear it after I'm done.

 

I also despise the review emails. A place I ordered from decided they wanted me to review all 5 samples I ordered, but instead of sending one email about the 5 products, they sent me FIVE SEPARATE EMAILS, days apart about each individual product. SO ANNOYING!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594,  

Amen to that!  I don't like getting these type of reminder emails from any site telling me what I just looked at or what is still sitting in my bag.
