Beauty Snacks: Sites of the Day

Published in: Just For Fun

iCiNG –
Gala is a gifted Australian beauty blogger with a devilishly quirky sense of humor. Her uplifting outlook has brought many a smile to my face.

Pink Is The New Blog
Trent just cracks me up. He writes about celebrity stuff, but unlike Perez Hilton he can do it without being mean (most of the time).


Rich blogs for VH1, and they’re damn lucky to have him. With his dry sense of humor, random cat videos and shameless love for Mariah Carey, he makes animated .gif images into works of art.

Because Susan Miller knows her shizz…

Because I’m cranky in the morning, but I always feel better when I start my day with a click here.

What are some of your favorite sites?

Happy Friday, ya’ll! What are your plans for the long weekend? I have some work to do this morning, but I hope to make it to Sephora this afternoon. You’ll find me playing by the Nars lipsticks. πŸ™‚

    Well, you’re my first blog-read every morning! There’s no others I’m quite as hooked on, but I like BellaSugar and Blogdorf Goodman quite a bit. Go Fug Yourself is always entertaining (especially when I need to feed my inner snark) and Beauty and the Blog (the Sephora blog) has had some fun posts lately!

    Sadly, most of my other non-beauty blogs have shut down or become so infrequently updated that I gave up, but I would be sorely lax in my recommendation duties if I did not mention my favorite web-comics, Pibgorn (, Dr. McNinja ( and PVP Online (! Hope you enjoy! πŸ™‚

    Hi Ping,

    I really like Becca. I heard that ModelCo is good too, but I haven’t tried it yet. I hope to when I go to Hawaii next month (’cause Aussies seem to always go there to shop!). When are you going to Australia?

    And thank you for saying you like this blog. You always make me smile!

    Have a fantastic FRIDAY! WOOOOOOOOT!

    Hi Glosslizard,

    *blushes* Thanks, my friend πŸ™‚

    I can’t wait to check out those sites. They will be my treat for when I finish my story today. Here are a few that you might like that El Hub got me hooked on: VG Cats and Ctrl+Alt+Del.

    What’s going on this Friday?

  5. Ping. says:

    haha thanks a lot Karen! quite soon.. end of june! hehe
    I like the crazy-ness and random-ness on the blog. Where else can i have a beach party online haha

    will definitely check out those brands hehe

  6. Butta says:

    Although I’m a relatively new reader, I have to say that your blog is one of my new faves. You’re a MACaholic and you’re funny–what more could one ask for? Good looking out on featuring Rich’s fourfour. He keeps me cracking up. I’d like to submit the blog that I write for for you to check out: If you love soul music, then you’ll love SoulBounce.

  7. Karen says:

    Hi Ping!

    Oh, that’s right around the corner. Are you going for work or for vacation? When I am in Hawaii I’ll ask around and find out what the Aussies are buyin’. Hopefully I’ll see lots of unusual brands when I get there. I’m so ready for vacation it ain’t even funny…

  8. Glosslizard says:

    Anytime, you earn it, girl!

    I love Ctrl+Alt+Del! I foolishly neglected to mention that one, but it’s on my list of dailies! I’ll check out VG Cats right now!

    Nothing is happening today, but I’m hooking up with my friend Justine tomorrow! First coffee and pastries (Woot!) then I think we’ll head out to Walnut Creek! Fun fun shopping with a friend! πŸ˜€

    Hope you’ve got some leisure on your list for the weekend!

  9. Karen says:

    Hi Butta,

    Hey! Nice to meet you. πŸ™‚ I love soul music so I’ll head over to your site and check it out this weekend.

    Are you hopelessly addicted to MAC, too?

  10. Karen says:

    Heya Glosslizard,

    El Hub *loves* Ctrl+Alt+Del and even has a book. I don’t always get the gaming reference but I think it’s funny!

    Sounds like your Saturday is gonna be fun. I take it you’ll be hanging out in the makeup section!!

    Yeah, hopefully I will. For sure there will be a movie (gotta have my precious few hours of down time!) and FOR SURE there will be some makeup. I am lusting for some new perfume and am thinking that Estee Lauder’s Tuberose Gardenia will be an early birthday present. πŸ™‚

  11. Glosslizard says:

    Oh yeah, I’m gonna check out those Prescriptives eye pencils and the Guerlain powder among other things!

    What movie are you thinking of? I think I’m going to try to get all of us down to a matinee of Iron Man this Sunday! Ooh, and I want to sniff Tuberose Gardenia too! Hooray for early birthdays! πŸ˜‰

  12. Karen says:

    Iron Man is a fantastic movie. I really enjoyed it, especially the flying scenes. I don’t really feel the need for speed when I’m on land (driving fast has no appeal to me), but for some reason I’m obsessed with the thought of going really fast in the air. Maybe I’ll come back as a (really fast) bird in another lifetime.

    The movie is up in the air right now. El Hub wants to watch the new Indiana Jones, but I’m just kinda like, eh. I need something brainless and scary, LOL.

    Tuberose Gardenia is wonderful. So light, floral and perfect for summer. I heart it!

  13. Aleks says:

    All of these sites are new to me yet they seem worth visiting. Thanks for the introduction! I created a list of my fave sites, too, and yours happen to be one of them. πŸ˜‰ It’s on my blog.

    Well ever since I discovered your blog, it is in my top 5 sites to read. Besides this awesome blog, I frequent, Lipgloss & Laptops (awesome Canadian beauty podcast), Pretty in the city (updated daily by author of the book Save Karyn and 20 times a lady ~ she is hilarious) and Ross the Intern’s blog (He is on the Tonight Show and also Celebrity Fit club).

    Thanks for the recommendations. I will add it to my Google Reader.
