Beauty Snacks: Sites of the Day, May 27

Published in: Just For Fun

Shake Your Beauty
Tia Williams: Novelist. Fashionista. All around bad-ass beauty blogger. Look up “beauty blogger” in the dictionary… that’s all I’m saying. There she is.

Tag Galaxy
Do you have a muse? When I need a little makeup inspiration, I visit Tag Galaxy. They’ve got this snappy Flickr gizmo/photo search engine that presents a visual representation of your search results. When you input a term (like makeup), the resulting photos from Flickr’s gargantuan library fly in to skin a group of revolving planets right before your eyes! Move over, NASA.


Don’t you hate being stuck at work when you want to hear Play that Funky Music White Boy but can’t because you forgot your iPod at home? No problem! Look no further than internet jukebox Songza. Just type in a song’s title or artist, and it streams like on-demand radio. Did I mention it’s free?

I Can Has Cheezburger
What is it about cats with Eastern European accents? Nothing says “Cheer up, girl!” like a funny cat cartoon. I’ve yet to submit a pic of Tabs, but I will. Oh, I will.

Etsy’s very right-brained online store houses independent designers and artists selling clothing, crafts, art and accessories. I’ve bought jewelry, clothes and bags from the site before. It’s also the first place I go to look for unique gifts.

I love how we sorta skipped Monday this week because of the holiday. After work this afternoon, I’m making my much-delayed trip to the makeup counters (I’m out of Shiseido 55). I should also go for a run and at least attempt to do some sit-ups (ugh).

Please have a fantastic day! Be strong!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Ahh I love I can has a cheezburger. That site always makes me laugh!! I like to vote on the sayings. is a great one, too.

    I’m pretty excited about this Songza site. I used to go to radioblog but they haven’t been up for a long time.

    It doesn’t feel like Tuesday at all and it’s throwing me off.haha It’s also hot and really humid out, I do believe I’m skipping the weeding today.haha

    As the CVS lady says, Have an excellent!

    So K I hit Nordies over the weekend and picked up all the clinique goodies I missed last time. I love the quick eyes lucky penny btw 🙂 And I’m loving lash power for long pretty lashes…not super drama, but very good for every day…and I love the little brush. I’m just curious have you tried it at the beach or poolside? I wore it all weekend and it did great even when I was a little sweaty…but I wasn’t sure if it would hold up to swimming or not. I also finally picked up one of the Sonia Kashuk cream blushes and the flat topped brush…but I haven’t used it yet… 🙂

    I definitely felt off yesterday and today… I kept thinking it was saturday yesterday… 🙂

    Hi Bridget,

    Oh yah, Stuff on My Cat is so funny! I love that one too.

    I’ve been listening to Jojo all morning on Songza. Actually, I’ve been listening to one song — Not That Kinda Girl. I can’t stop, LOL.

    I would love some hot and humid weather because it’s cold here today.

    What else are ya up to today?

  4. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    NICE! I’m glad you got your goodies, yay!

    I’ve used Lash Power at the pool once. It smudges a lil’ bit but I think that’s because I have the bad habit of rubbing my eyes (I know, I know). I think if you’re good about not touching your eyes and not rubbing your face with the towel (blot! I gotta remember to blot!) then you’ll be fine.

    I wish we could go to the beach today! I am really jonsing for a day where I can just sit underneath an umbrella, read and surf. *sigh*

    How was house hunting? See anything you like?

  5. Megan says:

    Yeah a couple…but I’m not ready to jump quite yet. I’m researching like crazy girl. One site Redfin shows how long houses have been on the market…and price changes…

    We’re still seeing prices decline some…but my current lease ends at the end of July…so I definitely want to decide something within the next few weeks…:-)

  6. Beth says:

    I’d never seen I Can Has Cheezburger but its hilarious. I’m not much of a cat person, but its had me laughing out loud.

    Good luck with your running and sit ups…I’m playing with 3 new eyeliners I bought today (that I blatantly didn’t need) and stressing about a funeral I’m going to tomorrow.

    Hopefully from Thursday onwards, this week will be better!

  7. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    Yeah, I hear ya. I’ve got “Home Buying for Dummies” waiting for me in the living room right now. I’ve never heard of Redfin, so thanks. I’ll bookmark that!

    Wow, so you’ll be making the jump pretty soon. Nothing says being an adult like having a mortgage. YOU GO!

  8. Karen says:

    Hi Beth,

    I’m sorry for your loss. Hang in there.

    When I’m grumpy I Can Has Cheezburger is an instant pick me up. Love it!

    Oh, what liners did you get, btw?

  10. Karen says:

    Hi Kia,

    LOL, I have a really great hand written rejection letter from her — she sent it to me when she was an editor at Teen People!

    You gotta wait a second or two before the song starts! Patience, my friend!

  11. Marisol says:

    Thanks for the Beauty Snacks. I would also recommend You can stream music and it is free.
