15 Minute Beauty Fanatic
My friend Christine knows what it means to be busy. As a full-time doctor and beauty blogger, she’s always looking for ways to streamline her beauty routine. On more than one occasion, her beauty tips and shortcuts have helped me get to work on time. If time is a luxury in your life, you owe it to yourself to visit her blog.
Wedding Mecca. The Knot delivers much more than simply advice on how to plan your wedding. It’s also a social networking site, a support system and a reality check for the newly betrothed.
Do you ever feel so busy and overwhelmed that you’d trade in your best pair of shoes for a way to shave 10 minutes off your day? No? Me neither, LOL! But seriously, each day Lifehacker posts new time saving tips galore (aka life hacks) and doesn’t charge a thing.
Music video directors everywhere must have freaked when they heard about Animoto. The free service lets you create totally kick-ass 30-second music video slideshows from photographs that you upload yourself. The shows are perfectly timed to music. It’s easy, awesome and totally free. And bloggers can embed their creations into their own websites.
Here’s an Animoto video I made for last year’s San Francisco Fashion Week.
It seems like there’s a new hotel and airfare booking site every single day — kayak.com, farecast.live.com, etc. — but Mobissimo’s ability to find the lowest available fares and room rates, as well as its ability to suggest better deals on alternate travel dates, makes it a must-have travel resource.
I’m back from my brother’s graduation! In true Karen fashion, I started tearing up five minutes into the thing, halfway through the Star Spangled Banner, but I managed to pull it together in time to scream like a banshee as he walked across the stage to accept his diploma.
What you can’t see in the picture above is my brother’s long black hair, which is longer than mine. I constantly give the boy huge bottles of conditioner, and I swear he doesn’t use a drop of it. Among his graduation presents were a ceramic flat iron and a bottle of Bumble & Bumble Super Rich Conditioner, LOL.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful Saturday so far! What’s the plan for tonight? I think I’m just chillin’ at home.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
