If you’re like me, you’re probably a compulsive blog reader. Like right now I can’t keep my eyes off of blogs that are letting the shiz fly about Mel Gibson, such a train wreck, can’t take my eyes off all the hoopla!
Sometimes you definitely don’t want to miss a trick when it comes to what your favorite beauty blogger is babbling about, I know that’s the case for me.
That’s while it’s a great idea to add your fav blogs to your Google Reader.
I’m always shocked when people say to me, Google Reader? RSS? What the hell are those? Are you speaking American (total Bush-ism there, hope you laughed!).
For those that are a tad on the geeky challenged side here’s some simple instructions for keeping abreast of posts on your fav blogs.
If you already have a Google E-mail account, yay for you, this will work easily.
Head on into your Gmail Account and look towards the top menu bar. You should have something that says Reader. Click it! Here’s where all the action will take place. On the left hand side you’ll see a blank space, this space will list blogs you “subscribe” to. On the right hand side you’ll see a blank space as well, this space will show you posts from each of the blogs you subscribe to. Note: My areas are not blank since I am subscribed to a few blogs as you can see in the photo below!
Head to your favorite blog. Look around the site and see if you notice a Feedburner, Subscribe to my Feed, or RSS icon or button.
Here’s a few examples:
Now click the icon to “subscribe” to the blog.
You’ll be presented with a page asking how you’d like to subscribe. Select Google. Another page will pop up asking where you’d like to add it to, select Google Reader.
Repeat Step 1 and head back into your Google Reader. You’re done! Congrats! You should see a subscription to the blog in your Google Reader. Google Reader will now alert you each time the blogger posts. Simply head into Google Reader in the morning or afternoon and check back to see new posts. Each time a post is posted it will appear in bold under the subscriptions tab (left side). If I there are no new posts, you won’t see the blog listed so you’ll know it hasn’t been updated yet.
Head around the Internet and subscribe to your fav beauty blogs, gossip sites, etc…..most everyone that blogs has a “feed” that you can add to Google Reader.
I hope you’ll make Musings of a Muse one of the first blogs you subscribe to today (that is if you’ve never tried RSS before). Click here to subscribe!
Good Luck and have fun!
When I was a wee Muse, causing chaos in high school (not so much, we had nuns for teachers, wasn’t alot of chaos going on around us that’s for sure) my friends and I convinced ourselves that a temple balm by The Body Shop kept us awake, alert, and scoring A’s on our exams.
Don’t ask me the name of it because high school is simply too far back to remember but The Body Shop used to have this peppermint temple balm/cream. It came in a small pump and you’d pump a drop out and apply on your temples, behind your ears, and neck. Supposedly the peppermint kept you awake, alert, bright eyed, and bushy tailed. We all thought it was the rage, kinda like legal uppers for your mind. I doubt the damn thing worked but lord knows we convinced ourselves it did.
I commonly associate Ojon with that great big ball they created. What was it called the Tawaka? That thing looked massive. I honestly never got the point to be honest and it just amused me because of its shape and general weirdness. I just wanted to buy one and ask people at the park if they wanted to play catch with my Tawaka, because, hey, that sounds damn exotic right?
Tawaka aside I also happen to think hair care when it comes to Ojon…not makeup.
Gather round kids. I took sometime out today to gather up some of my best Beauty Most Unusual posts that we have all had a good giggle at. If you haven’t experienced Beauty Most Unusual before you’re sure to be in for a treat exploring some of these posts and if you already have perhaps you’ll find a post you missed in this batch.
Beauty is damn unusual.
So off the topic of makeup but have you tried Wonka Exceptionals Fruit Marvels. OMG Loves! I nicked a tin from my friend’s purse about two weeks ago and I’ve ever after been a Fruit Marvels addict. It’s fruity crack people! First off, seriously, someone should send a memo to Willy Wonka that the website stinks. After inhaling my first tin of these bad boys I proceeded to WANT more and my search around drugstores was uneventful, I came back empty handed, no delicious candy crack to be had. So like a good techy geek I logged on to the Wonka site (www.wonka.com) and they make no mention of these around (granted, I didn’t register but still!? WTH? Where’s the deets on this candy crack!?). They mention the Wonka Exceptionals Chocolates but nada about Fruit Marvels.
So far, haven’t had much lucky scoring anymore. Sad, irritated little pout but I hear they might be available in other flavors, that makes me want to put a little extra effort into my search.
Oh sorry you wanted deets what they taste like right? I got the Pomegranate ones and they are basically a hard shelled candy, kinda like a sucker of some sort, that are filled with a jelly, liquid-y center kinda Turkish Delight-like. Turkish Delight is one of my fav sweets of all times, buy me some and I’m yours, so this could be why Fruit Marvels appealed so much to me as they have the same sort of concept going on, sugary coated deliciousness.
Anyway, ’nuff ’bout candy and the likes. Let’s get on with the makeup eh?
L’Oreal has introduced the Stars Never Fail Lipcolour Compact Collection for Fall 2010 which includes personally selected shades from Beyonce, Andie MacDowell, Diane Keaton, Eva Langoria Parker, Kate del Castillo, and Linda Evangelista. L’Oreal wanted to go with a diverse group of women that represented various age groups, styles, and ethnicities. I think it’s safe to say the concept of going with such a wide range of various women is really a great idea considering makeup junkies come in sorts of shapes, sizes, ages, and colors, don’t we?
