Post in Besides Beauty

Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

So I was scrolling through the old makeup organization tag. and I saw in the background of kimmi's vanity pictures, there was a poster of dean, a character in a TV show called supernatural. So I was wondering...what else do people on beautytalk like, other then makeup? So go ahead and lets post our 5 to 10 favorite activities, things, movies, TV shows, etc. Here are mine:

1. Pretty little liars! the books and TV show are amazing!

2. Japanese anything! Not being racist, I just think stuff from there is supercool.

3. Animated Japanese flimsy. I love miazaki's flims.

4. Graphic novels/manga! lol, I must seem like such a nerd.

5. Art! I love to draw/paint, and really want a career in art one day.

6. chococat! he's the adorable brown cat from hello kitty's little gang of friends. he's discontinued, but i can still find stuff of his online.

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

What a fun thread!

 

I remember chococat! That's really unfortunate that they discontinued him. My favorite Hello Kitty character is Pochacco, although I haven't seen him around recently...they may have retired him too Smiley Sad. Miyazaki films are amazing! My Neighbor Totoro was one of my favorite movies growing up. I remember only watching the Japanese version (I don't think the dubbed version was out) and still being able to understand what was going on; you don't need dialogue, all of the character actions speak for themselves Smiley Happy


1. I'm a horror movie junkie. I started watching horror flicks when I was very young, I remember watching A Nightmare on Elm Street when I was around 5? I've just always loved the suspense and eerie nature of the genre. I have a massive horror DVD collection that I'm always adding new movies to. last good scary movie that I saw was Insidious, it was different and a nice break from all of the excessively gorey films that have been coming out...yuck.

 

2. I love fashion! Putting together looks, reading fashion books/magazines, watching fashion shows...I  would love to attend New York Fashion week one day. In the meantime I have no problem streaming the live shows on YouTube!

 

3. My favorite show right now is True Blood. I'm so eager for summer to get here to find out what the upcoming season has in store! Any other Trubies out there?

 

4.I enjoy traveling! Rather it's to a relaxing beach resort or a busy city, expericing new cultures and tourist attractions is so exciting. This year I'm hoping to visit several friends that live in different states. My sister is going to live in London for a year, I've been once before but wouldn't object to going again.

 

5. I hate being bored so I'm always actively doing something. Some of my favorite hobbies are: painting, jewelry making, and reading.

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

1) OMG- I can't believe that you nanobear and janine love Miazaki films as I do!!  My favorite is My Neighbor Totoro, followed by Whispers of the Heart. I cry when I watch Pom Poro (sp?), that's so sad with the little raccoons..... There was a film festival of Miyazaki films several years ago on TCM, that's how I got interested in them.  I think I have DVD's of all except one or 2, they might not be English subtitled. In the film genre, I also love old 1933-47 movies.

 

2) I love to read and to write. I am working on a novel, which I should live so long as to finish it or get it published, but it is relaxing to do. 

 

3) Horseback riding. It is a never ending challenge, to become a better rider myself and to teach the horse to do ever more interesting things.

 

4) I like to travel, but not if I have to fly. It used to be such fun before the world got screwy, the seats were bigger so my long legs fit easier and the airlines treated you like a valued customer instead of a cow. I love a good car trip, just not the Thelma and Louise kind! lol

 

5) Cooking, I love to cook up a Chinese banquet for us, it's just fun to do all the chopping and stir frying. Plus I make a mean chocolate cake!

 

6) Picnics!  Pack my dog, hubby and picnic basket and I'm ready to go!

 

7) Kayaking, I have done a lot of long distance paddling, fresh water and ocean.


Guess I'm either on the sofa watching movies or outside having fun!

Great thread nanobear, thanks! 

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

This is a fun topic and a great way to get to know everyone

 

1. I am fully addicted to The Vampire Diaries on CW. My obsession is a little too extreme for someone my age. Smiley Embarassed I have a Damon Salvatore shirt even (that I only wear for sleeping in, I can't go out in public with it on LOL)  but it's such a great and dramatic show without being too extreme or too cheesy.  I have the first 2 seasons on DVD and watch it every Thursday night and follow my favorite cast members on twitter. 

 

2. I LOVE to read! I have a brand new Hunger Games book to read (which Olivia and Janine totally sold me on!) but I just went to the library yesterday and checked out 6 more books! I love all sorts of books, but am not into romance novels or sci-fi. I can read and read for hours on end, that probably explains my horrible eye sight

 

3. I'm a new found (well, maybe old-found) gym junkie and have boosted my gym trips up to 4x a week. I can't believe a few years ago I would go 5 or 6 days and stay for 2 or 3 hours on end! Maybe one day I can reach that level again but for now.. no time! Smiley Happy 

 

4. I love Dogs. I had a cocker spaniel that was 19 years old that I had to put to sleep a little over a year ago and I miss him everyday! I also took care of my sisters rescue pup and let him stay with me until she was settled in her new home in Portland. My parents ended up driving north from SF to Portland with him.  I also went to the mall last summer looking for a party dress.. came home with another dog! Ended up keeping him a bit and then flying him up on the plane with me (extremely well behaved may I add!) to my sisters house where he has a new happy home. I have a terrible habit of finding and taking in stray pets/unlucky pets (dogs, rabbits, birds, fish) that need homes.. BUT they always find HAPPY homes with me! Another little dog I got ended up going to a good home to a new neighbor I met, so he's only 3 blocks away. I just love animals, I can't wait to have another dog

 

5. I also love horror movies too! I just found a $5 set at Target for the first 4 Nightmare on Elm Street movies. SUCH A DEAL!! I can't wait to sit and watch them all. In a row. for 5 hours straight. Smiley Wink

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

1. Currently my favorite TV shows are Boardwalk Empire and The Big Bang Theory.  Both are completely different, but very awesome in their own way!

 

2.  I am a big sports fan. I grew up watching all types of sports and played tennis from jr high through college.  I don't get to play much anymore but am still a big fan of the sport.  I am also a big baseball fan - nothing better than going to a ballgame in the summer (Go Phillies!!) Smiley Happy

 

3.  I really enjoy reading but don't have much time for it.  I have a million books on my Barnes & Noble wishlist but haven't been able to get to one in a while.  There's one I purchased a long time ago that I want to read next - it's called Retail Hell: How I Sold My Soul to the Store Confessions of a Tortured Sales Associate.  I worked in retail through my college years.  I loved many parts of it but anyone who works in retail knows of the not so glamorous sides (especially around the holidays!).  I think this should be a funny read!

 

4  I also like to travel! My goal is to find more time for this! I have many places on my list of places to visit, but my ultimate dream vacation is to stay in one of those over water bungalows in Tahiti! Pure paradise!  (Maybe if I stop spending all of my money on beauty supplies I could save up enough money for this super expensive escape! - hah!)

 

5.  My other obsession (other than makeup) is jewelry.  A close friend of mine sells jewelry for a company called Lia Sophia and their pieces are absolutely gorgeous! I have acquired quite a collection over the past year and am very exciting for the new Spring line that will be coming out soon!  

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

I am definitely an cat lady.  I have four cats-Gizmo, Lady, Lucky and Smoky.  Two boys and two girls. 

 

Some of my favorite things to do are dance, read and play video games such as Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy series.  I can't wait for FFXIII-2 to come out on Jan. 31!  I really loved the storyline in FXIII, so I think I'm going to enjoy the continuation of it.

 

This will probably make some of you laugh....but I have a habit of youtubing old seasons of Power Rangers and watching it.  I don't know why....reliving my childhood maybe?  30 years old and I youtube Power Rangers.  When I was pregnant, I spent hours on end catching up on all the seasons after the 1998 ones.  I just think they're funny, since they're so cheesy and overacted.

 

@Diana:  your sister lives in Portland, OR?  You realize that's literally just across the Columbia River from me, right?  Vancouver, WA.  I go into Portland quite a bit.  My sister also lives in one of the suburbs just outside Portland.

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

@waterbaby1981  Power to the cat ladies!  lol.  Cats have such unique personalities.  My cat, Doobie, and my bf's cat, Foxy, are nothing alike.  We call them brother and sister, though lol. 

 

 

@xoxcharlottexox  Boxers are a very affectionate breed, and love to have playmates.  My family has a boxer mix (I don't know what he's mixed with cause he looks more boxer than anything), and he is a big baby lol.  Going from the breed's characteristics, it should be fairly easy to introduce a new friend to Rudy.  Perhaps you could remind your mom that boxers love having a friend for company lol.    You are not alone on your addiction with Words with Friends lol.

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

@kimmi he's actually a boxer mix but looks like a boxer, so i forget to mention it sometimes lol. and I've tried to convince her but it hasn't worked so far! i'm hoping for a cute stray to wander into our yard and I'll take care of it lol

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

@Kimmi LOL crazy pet ladies! I will totally be the crazy DOG or BIRD lady.. hopefully dog lady.. I'm allergic to cats! so no cats for me =(

 

@Waterbaby1981 I had no idea! I'll be up in Portland next week and staying for a bit to catch up with my sister and HOPEFULLY there may be a little bit of snow again like they had this weekend! San Francisco definitely does NOT have snow! I'm looking forward to the tax free shopping. 

 

@Charlotte see, I'm not so crazy for loving Vampire Diaries! I was sad to find out Stefan is married in real life LOL

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

@Diana - Tell me about it! I was a little [no, a lot! lol.] heartbroken! I mean even though he's waaay older than me and I have ZERO chance of marrying him, him being married just confirms that! Smiley Sad lol.

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

@Charlotte  There's always the chance for a stray to come by, especially since there are still many people out in the world that do no spay or neuter, or at least keep an eye on their unaltered pets.

 

 

@dianabt  Birds are really interesting pets!  I like seeing some of the bird videos on YouTube lol.

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

Wow know more about everyone outside of the makeup world Smiley Happy

 

I should have also added that I'm a self appointed member of the crazy pet lady club haha. I have two dogs (mini schnauzers), a cat, and a snake. Both my boyfriend and I LOVE animals, my friends joke around that I'm going to be an animal hoarder one day haha.

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

@janinebt  I must ask, what kind of snake do you have?  Although I'm kinda afraid of snakes, I'm curious lol.  I have petted one before, but that's about it  lol. 

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

I love the title of this thread.

 

1. I originally went to school for Art and decided to switch majors just to have something to fall back on. I switched to Politics and minored in Music. (the combination was a shocker to my advisor as it's so random)

 

2. I love watching lightning and thunderstorms. There's something about them that's oddly calming to me. I have no clue why.

 

3. I love cooking and hope to one day open a restaurant. I've been working on healthy alternatives to cultural dishes from Guam and thinking about doing a global fusion menu. *still in the works*

 

4. I paint and have lately been trying new techniques with different mediums. 

 

5. I really want to like cats, but my allergies won't allow it. Smiley Sad

 

6. I rather watch sub-titled films then ones in English so I don't get bored.

 

Cheers,

 

Tiffany

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

Hi dianabt - I'm so sorry to read about the loss of your dog, even though it's over a year it's still so painful. You must be doing something right, giving that Cocker Spaniel 19 wonderful years is a huge accomplishment, you should be very proud of yourself. I'd love to know her name and hear her story. It's great that you're rescuing and re-homing strays. You're kinda like the pied piper, they just gravitate towards you, it's pretty amazing. People always say how intuitive animals are and you/they have proven that.

 

Holy cow! Your dog was 133 years old! Incredible. I have a Greyhound named Brin, love Greyhounds. It will be 5 years in June since I lost my last Greyhound, Princess Chalupa, I still feel it and it still makes me very, very sad. It happened because of an incident/accident at the vets office, not fun. I Thank God for Brinny, she has really helped me heal.

 

I hope you get another dog soon. I have a feeling you won't have to go choose/adopt one. Your next dog will no doubt find, choose and adopt you.

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

@kssweetheart, thank you! My dog was very important to me, a total member of the family. Smiley Happy He is missed constantly but I know he's better off not hurting and being sad all day. I love dogs and once I find a new place to live that will (hopefully!) let me have pets I'll be sure to get a new pet. I still forget and rush home thinking SOMEONE needs to go out for a walk just to realize all my pets are in different (better!) homes. 

 

Speaking of others interests... who here is playing DRAW SOMETHING?! I am SO addicted to playing it and can't stop! I have a friend who is an artist in real life and I sware, the images she draws are INCREDIBLE.. They put my little stick figures to shame! Anyone who wants to play let me know! I don't have it connected to facebook or anything but my own individual account and can't stop! Cat Very Happy

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Re: Let's get to know each other Moreinfo a non stalker way

@dianabt - isn't it funny the way our pets train us so well, certain behaviors become so ingrained and it's hard to retrain ourselves. It's so weird when you catch yourself doing things like that

 

 Do you ever feel like you still see her (was your dog a her?) out of the corner of your eye or like a shadow somewhere? Like I said, I lost Princey Girl nearly 5 years ago Smiley Sad and just a few weeks ago another family member (who usually isn't very in tuned to things like that) had an experience like that at the same time I did, it was so strange, we both thought we saw something and felt something and without saying a word we just looked at each other and honestly knew....When I picked my jaw up off of the floor I said "did you just feel that?" she said "Princess.....Smiley Surprised?" and we both nodded our heads, with big giant saucer sized eyes. It was bizarre, not bad bizarre though, good bizarre. Chills.

 

Have you ever experienced anything like that? Has anyone else out there? Just wondering.

 

I hope you'll let us know when you get a new place and a new addition to your family, hope you'll post a picture of the new addition. I'll say a prayer that you find a nice pet-friendly place and I'm certain the rest will all fall into place. Heart

 

I haven't heard of Draw Something, can you tell me a little about it?

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

@dianna - I am also addicted to draw something! I am all about the stick figures too lol I don't know what it is about the game that is so addictive! Let me know if you are up for a game and I'll send you my email so you can search for me :-)

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

Ahhhh such a great post! And I love that everyone fathoms "My Neighbor Totoro"  because I LOVED that movie growing up, and I still love it Smiley Happy

 

1. I'm a pediatric nurse and I love it. Also, I get so excited when a kiddo gives me a "gift" ... I've gotten colored pictures, a painted birdhouse and a beaded bracelet. Very sweet that sick kids still want to make others happy Smiley Happy

 

2. I live for the massage I get once every 2 weeks, it's the best thing ever.

 

3. I have recently gotten into reading for the first time in forever. I'm about to start The Hunger Games and I am SO EXCITED!!

 

4. I am a foodie. I love to eat it, cook it, go out to resturants. I will eat (almost) anything once. So glad I'm not picky!

 

5. HELLO KITTY!! Love love love love love love love! I wish there was a Sanrio here in Louisville!

 

6. Video Games!! Since I get 4 days off a week regularly, I kill a lot of time in front of the TV. Favorite series is Legend of Zelda.

Re: Let's get to know each other more.In a non stalker way

Fun topic!

 

@janinebt  I know what you mean about having to constantly do something.  My boyfriend thinks it's impossible for me to sit still.  I'll play on my phone, file my nails, or find something to do lol.

 

@dianabt  I loved reading your dog story!  I'm sorry to hear about your cocker spaniel, though.  They are such sweet dogs.  He is watching over you, though.

 

@ssmittys  Yay, video games!!!  lol

 

 

Well, here's some info on lil ole me lol.

 

1.  I'm a first generation college student.  None of my grandparents went to college and my parents didn't either.  They worked a long way to get where they are in factory style work, but they are very supportive of me going to college and wanted that for me.  I'm an English major with a minor in Education so that I can someday teach high school.  However, I do know I have typos on here from where I type fast lol.  Some people I've met on campus may be surprised to hear I'm an English major because of my East TN accent, but I can shut them up by telling them my ACT reading and english scores.  Never judge someone by their local accent.

 

2.  Like Dianabt, I am a huge animal person!  My family will sometimes call me Ellie May because of my love for animals.  I have my first cat that goes wherever I go, so he lives with me at my off campus apartment.  Perfect roommate lol.  Now, I believe the crazy cat lady has come out lol.

 

3.  I like riding dirt bikes!!  It's a hobby my dad and I share.  He wanted to start me out on one when I was little, but mom said no and whatnot.  During high school, I got my first dirt bike, and I've been hooked ever since.  It's just a trail bike, so my jumps aren't too high, but I love it!  Mom has already said that she knows I'll have my motorcycle license someday.  She's probably right lol.

 

4.  My favorite vacation spot is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  I love the beach, although the waves beat me up lol. 

 

5.  I mainly listen to country, rock, classic rock, and some pop.  However, I don't like pop mixed with country.  Some favorite singers and bands include Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, The Donnas, and AC/DC.

 

6.  Other random hobbies I have are videogames, photography, making hemp jewelry, nail art, reading, writing, and anything artsy.

 

Re: Let's get to know each other Moreno a non stalker way

This is so fun! Smiley Happy

 

1. Sports:

Fall - I do cheerleading: competition and sideline [football cheerleading]

Winter - I mainly focus on tumbling (for competition cheerleading) along with just working out on my own (not with a sports team) and weekly cheerleading practices.

Spring - I play soccer, as well as balancing that with tumbling and year-round cheerleading practices.

Summer - I have cheerleading and tumbling year-round, and I also play a little soccer during the summer.  For the main part, though, I work out on my own or with friends.

 

2. TV:

I love America's Next Top Model, The Rachel Zoe Project, Project Runway, The Vampire Diaries, The Office, and makeover shows like What Not to Wear, although I don't watch each new one that comes out, I just watch it when I'm cleaning or working out, lol.

Vampire Diaries is my addiction, though! Stefan and Damon... <3

I have the seasons off of iTunes, on my computer and iPod, lol. Not to mention I tiVo every episode and watch it at least 2 times!

 

3. Movies:

I LOVED Bridesmaids, and The Hangover. I really like watching funny movies like those!

I also like scary movies.  Most recently I've liked Paranormal Activity 3. It was pretty creepy! Along with Scream 4 and quite a few others!

 

4. Fashion:

I love shopping for comfy clothes at Victoria's Secret: I practically live in their hoodies and yoga pants/leggings!

I mainly shop at American Eagle, Hollister, and Abercrombie for things like V-Neck tees, comfy sweaters, and jeggings.

I like to get other clothes from lots of places! I get some things from stores like Charlotte Russe and Forever 21, and then also get higher-quality clothes from places (like Ralph Lauren and BCBG Maxazria, for example).

 

5. Summer!

I think someone's favorite season can actually describe their personality in a way.

My favorite season is summer!  Barbeques, pool parties, vacations, warm weather, bikinis, and no school are just a few of my favorites from summertime!

But, I have favorites of all the seasons! (Fall: Bonfires, bringing out warm clothes, and the beautiful foliage! Winter: The beauty of the snow, layering on lots of cute clothes, and all the holidays! Spring: Seeing everything bloom, and it finally getting warm!)

 

6. Music:

I love lots of music, but mainly:

Rap: Mac Miller (my favorite!!), Lil Wayne is okay, Drake, lots more.

Country: Jason Aldean, Rascal Flatts, Sara Evans, Luke Bryant, just to name a few. There are TONS of artists I adore!

 

7. Pets:

I only have one pet, a Boxer named Rudy, but I reeeally want more! I love dogs, and I'm always begging my mom for a second, and third, lol. I don't really like cats, though. Just something about them! I think it's the claws? haha.

 

8. I love going to the spa!

I looove being pampered! (Who doesn't? lol) And I live for days at the spa! Facials, massages, mani/pedi's... amazing!!!

 

9. 10 Random Facts About Me:

 - I'm short, 5'2"! But I'm still growing, I'm sure!! Smiley Wink

 - I love watching the Dr. Oz show everyday after school, lol.

 - I started wearing makeup about 2 years ago (and have been addicted ever since.)

 - Whenever I'm home sick from school I watch marathons of NCIS and Burn Notice... USA and cloo always have it on all day!  It's really interesting and if you don't follow it closely it still makes sense, mostly!

 - I really like photography. It's one of my favorite things! I take pictures of tons of things everyday, and pretty much always have my camera on me.

 - I'm getting my drivers license in a few months and cannot wait!

 - I'm addicted to Words With Friends.  More than Alec Baldwin!!

 - I love cooking and baking.  Just yesterday I baked red velvet cupcakes and they were magical! Smiley Very Happy

 - I cut my own hair and bangs! I don't trust other people to not cut it too short, and it's much more convenient that way.

 - I love doing people's hair, ever since I was little I was good at it, too.  I do people I know's hair for events like prom, and I really enjoy it!

 

xoxo, Charlotte Smiley Very Happy
