Beauty Snacks: Sites of the Day, July 15

Published in: Just For Fun

Flying Saucer
I wish I had a tricked out flying saucer that could zip me over to the UK for shopping trips. I’d love to meet UK fashion and beauty blogger Selina Jervis. On her awesome Flying Saucer blog, she displays her daily fashion adventures in all their photographic glory, and she sounds like a cool person, too. Don’t fear flying saucers, yo!

The Daily Cookie
If you need a dose of sweetness, head over to The Daily Cookie. Lilan blogs about all things beauty and spices it up with reality TV talk, recipes and restaurant reviews. If you’re having a rough day, she’s always there with kind words to cheer you up.


Specktra Beauty News
A stellar blog for breaking MAC news, Specktra Beauty News is an extension of the busy Specktra makeup forums. The Specktra beauty girls preview and review the full gamut of makeup and beauty products, but they excel at covering MAC.

OMG! Did you hear Brangelina had their twins? I just read about it on Liberty Kontranowski dishes on celebrity gossip ala Us Weekly (one of my secret favorites). I can always count on Snarkstress to give me the scoop.

A social network of sorts, Yelp users call themselves yelpers, and they’re all about reviews — restaurant reviews, gym reviews, school, shop, spa and beauty salon reviews. I found my last colorist on Yelp.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Great picks, thanks! I also loved the article on “baked goods” from Sephora. Trust my sweet tooth to lead me STRAIGHT to the sugar, lol

    Thanks for these websites lol! Great picks!

    Hi Tammy,

    It’s really handy, isn’t it? Did you find anything good?

  5. Karen says:

    Hi Charu,

    You’re welcome. πŸ™‚ Ha, I’m the same way – if it’s sweet, I’m there in a hot second.

    Hola Karen! (I’m in a Mexican mood today)

    Thanks for the love! PS – I really like the sites you picked today, Yelp rocks!

    And I can’t wait to check out Snarkstress – Brangelina picked a gorgeous name for their girl. Vivienne Marcheline is perfect and she’s sure to be the next Audrey or Jackie O, I just feel it πŸ™‚

  8. Dao says:

    Yelp sounds cool, I will give it a try! Specktra is an endless source of inspiration, only if I could bring my laptop to my bathroom to do their FOTDs πŸ˜€

    Hi Lilan,

    You’re welcome! Have a great weekend. πŸ™‚

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    Back when I didn’t have wireless one thing I’d do was cut and paste tutorial instructions onto a word processing program and print it out (or you can always take screen shots and print those out too). Woo hoo, time for fun with makeup πŸ™‚

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    It’s a really great site. I have friends who are very active on it. I like using it to find new restaurants, too.

    Hope you had a fab Friday.

  13. Liberty says:

    Hey Karen,

    Thanks for the love, dahling. And thanks even more for leading me to some great new sites – including yours!

    Have a fab weekend,


    Liberty (aka The Snarkstress)
